Valve Corporation made a groundbreaking move for the esports industry after releasing Dota 2 in 2013. They introduced Major Championships with colossal prize pools to elevate the game's competitive landscape. The first-ever Dota Major tournaments were held in 2015, and the International was integrated into its proceedings.

Fast forward to 2023, and the Dota Major Championships are a celebrated annual event that attracts millions of fans worldwide. This year's tournament, the Berlin Major, is the second Major of the 2023 DPC season and promises to be nothing short of breathtaking. Hosted at the Velodrom Arena, it is set to rival the Lima Major, the season's first Major, in terms of hype and excitement.

Betting on esports can be an exciting yet nerve-racking experience, especially when real money is involved. Even experienced bettors can benefit from some simple tips to maximize their chances of winning big. Here are some tips to get you started:

Get your head in the game! One way to improve your betting game is to play the game itself. If you're betting on Dota 2, learning the game can give you a better understanding of the current meta, gameplay mechanics, and strategies. This knowledge can help you make more informed bets and increase your chances of winning big.

Do your research! Look into all the current teams competing. Get your shovel out and start digging into their player rosters, match histories, and overall success percentages. This will give you that competitive edge over other bettors.

Set a budget. Manage your bankroll effectively, set a budget for your wagering and stick to it. Always bet responsibly. Do not bet more than you can afford to lose.
