CS:GO

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) is a multiplayer first-person shooter video game, a part of the long-running Counter-Strike series that was created as an amateur mode for Half-Life, but it quickly evolved to a successful standalone game. It is hard to find a person who hasn’t heard anything about the game, because it’s very popular among players of all ages. Moreover, it is one of the most popular online multiplayer game ever and, subsequently, CSGO betting holds a great share of online gaming markets.

Classics Never Die

What started as a simple mode became an independent, incredibly successful series, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is the latest addition to the FPS family. It has everything we like from the previous chapters – including classic maps, familiar weapons and fast-paced gameplay – as well as various major improvements, such as modern graphics, advanced matchmaking system, new modes and much more. Yet the basic concept hasn’t changed – Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is still an object-based shooter with two teams. On the scenario with bomb planting, Terrorists try to plant the bomb, while the Counter-Terrorists try to stop them. On the other type of maps, CT need to rescue the hostages which are held by the Terrorists. The maps are relatively small, which makes the gameplay of CSGO active and exciting for betting.

Esports Giant

Counter-Strike is everything an online game should be – it’s highly competitive and very enjoyable to watch and is a good choice for people who like betting. In order to win it’s not enough to be skilled – you need a deep understanding of game mechanics and strategy. Even a person that doesn't play the game can watch the tournaments and enjoy the exciting show CS:GO provides.

Over a number of years, the Counter-Strike scene has evolved and became an example for other games. Valve managed to find a good balance in everything: there are both independent premier tournaments and major tournaments supported by Valve; the prize pools are high enough to be competitive with other esports disciplines, but not high to make organizations irrelevant as it happens in some other scenes. On the contrary, the players try to stick to their organizations because they value their salaries and try to keep to the terms of the contracts, which results in stable rosters. All this makes the Counter-Strike scene a good option for various investors and boosts the general development of the market.

CS:GO betting is a very popular type of esports bets thanks to the game’s competitive nature. The competitive scene is stable and the ruleset is clear, which allows a plunger to analyse the situation, make a prediction and win big.
