League of Legends, also referred to as LoL, is a popular ESport. An ESport, for those who may not be aware, is a video game played on a professional level. ESports have been rapidly gaining popularity in New Zealand and the world, sparking a massive increase in bet making on ESport games. League of Legends, being a game played by millions across the world, has been a central focus of much of the bet making activity.
All eSport matches are broadcast live via the internet, allowing viewers to log on remotely and watch the games as they are played. Many online bookmakers will provide live feeds for League of Legends matches, as well as matches for other popular ESports games, including Counter Strike Global Offensive, Team Fortress 2, and the more recently adopted shooter by Blizzard, Overwatch.

League of Legends betting is carried out in much the same way as bet making for any other sport. That is to say, teams are assigned odds by bookmakers, and bet makers accept those odds when wagering on the team to win. In the case of the match not being assigned handicap rules, the odds for a team will be written as something like the following; 1/10.
If handicap rules have been applied, they will be displayed as something like -1/+1, which would indicate that at the close of a game, the first team will have a point deducted from the score, and the second team a point added. It is important to be extra careful while wagering at betting sites in the case of handicap matches, as the results can often drastically change how a match is declared.
More about League of Legends
League of Legends is a strategic game played by two teams of players, revolving around a mixture of fast paced decision making and action. Players are required to control their character in a cooperative session with team mates, with the ultimate goal of pushing opposing players back and gaining ground. The matches generally last between 15 to 20 minutes, but have been known to go on a great deal longer in especially hard fought matches.
One of the most important things the keep in mind when taking part in eSports betting is how well a team works together. League of Legends is very specifically designed to have teams working together cooperatively, and if all the players are not performing their role well the team will suffer. Watching how each individual player performs is key to spotting the best, most likely to win teams. Those who play League of Legends will have the biggest advantage in this case, and are likely to make the best bets.
Those who are not familiar with the game may also take part in League of Legends betting, however, as there are a number of bookmakers who provide tips on how the game works, and which team is the most likely to win. Be sure to take note of any League of Legends betting tips that your favourite bookmaker may offer.
