Finding the right esportsbook is the most important part of esports betting. As a fan, you want your sportsbook to be reputable and regulated, full of action, able to provide an experience that you’ll enjoy
Even with the explosion in popularity of esports, betting on gaming is still relatively new. That means most sportsbooks are either the “old money” names with good action but a product that leaves a lot to be desired OR are startups focused on gaming who are still finding their way.
Rivalry aims to bridge that gap to bring you all of the best Dota 2 action on one of the web’s most trusted platforms. We’ve taken everything gamers love about esports—the action, the betting, the news, and culture—and combined it with everything you need in a sportsbook—regulation, licenses, and financial transparency. We’ve created the ultimate online betting experience.
When we say Rivalry is made for fans by real fans, we mean it. Many other sites are gambling companies looking to expand their businesses, seeing esports as a lucrative opportunity. Rivalry is a gambling experience created by gamers and esports fans, with the sole purpose of making esports more enjoyable. If you’re looking for betting on traditional sports, slot machines, or other nonsense, you’ll need to look somewhere else. We’re excited to offer you:
In our humble opinion, Dota 2 is the most exciting game in esports. Don’t tell the League of Legends people that though (and don’t read our League of Legends articles...because we probably pander to that crowd and bash Dota there). Dota 2 is by far the most action-packed, exciting, and skilled gaming title. And all of this action makes it one of the most lucrative gambling experiences online. There’s never a dull moment in Defense of the Ancients 2.
If you’re looking to get your feet wet in esports betting, this is the ultimate game for it. When it comes to betting, it has everything you could possibly want:
Dota 2 skins gambling is one of the most popular ways to bet on the game. But anyone who does it knows how volatile it can be. If you’re wasting your time betting skins instead of cash, you need to stop.
At Rivalry, we want to give the fans that use our site the most realistic, safe, and seamless experience possible. That’s why we only operate in cold, hard cash.
Skins are insanely popular. We’ve even bet with them ourselves a few times. But after getting tired of all the stress, uncertainty, and volatility that comes with it, we wanted to open up a gamer-friendly platform that actually worked using real money.
Here’s why cash is by far the best option:
When we first started betting, we were full of questions. Trust us, we’ve heard them all. We’ve put together a list of the most frequently asked questions for your convenience:
Yes. We are fully licensed by the Isle of Man and operate in a legal jurisdiction. We are 100% compliant with the law, so you have nothing to worry about. Your money is safe here and you are not breaking the law. Just enjoy betting!
The number you see next to each team is called the decimal odds. This is how we express the likelihood of the team to win a particular match. For example, if you see Team A at 1.5 odds, that means you stand to win 1.5 times your bet. If you bet $1 on a team at 1.5, you can win $1.50 total (including your wager). That means you get .50 profit. One key skill of savvy bettors is knowing when odds are accurate and knowing when there’s a good chance of an upset.
Dota 2 is a popular title with a lot of in-game skill, meaning each match is unique and exciting. All of this leads to major sponsorships, world tournaments, and crowds clamoring for more. The major streaming contingent helps inflate the prize pools too. Since Dota 2 tournaments get a lot of crowdfunding, the numbers inflate even higher. All of this action creates the perfect environment for betting!
