Popularity of Esports betting South Africa
Esports industry has been revolutionised since the last decade. Many organizations have formed teams to participate in the ever-growing esports tournaments. Many investors have started betting websites through which you can bet on any type of sports, and that’s the reason why they are known as a Sportsbook. However, with the tremendous growth in the esports industry, the betting websites added esports on their list. The main reason for the popularity of esports betting sites is the dedication of the users towards esports. If there would be no big tournaments, then betting on events would be useless. Other than that, the popularity is very much dependent on the services provided by the esports bookmakers to the users. Below is the list of all the esports bookmakers through which you can bet on your favourite game.
Where to bet on Esports in South Africa.
Esports Betting has grown in popularity over the years and many international bookmakers are now offering Esports betting markets to their punters. Fortunately (for once) South African bookmakers have kept up with the times and are now also pricing up Esports events for users to bet on. Let’s have a look to see where you can do your Esports betting in South Africa.
Leading the way in Esports gambling is World Sports Betting. They have recently added Esports streaming to their site so you can watch and bet on the matches being played. Pretty impressive considering there are not many international books that offer this. World Sports Betting are also the only South African bookmaker to offer this service. The most popular offerings across the board are Dota 2, League of Legends and CS:GO.
WSB are not the only book to offer Esports, many others seem to be trialling it and hopefully they will have a permanent offering in the future.
Below are South African bookmakers that offer Esports Gambling / Betting :

South African’s should consider themselves very lucky to have such a variety of bookmakers offering Esports betting. WSB easily leads the way but the other books are hot on their heels which is fantastic for us punters.
