Mid.Bet Sportsbook Review
Mid.Bet was founded in 2014 by a group of enthusiasts who are in love with eSports and who have themselves participated in competitions at various levels. Therefore, this company accepts bets only on eSports events. Mid.Bet is managed by Esports Kingdom LP, whose office is located in Dublin, and the bookmaker operates on the basis of a license issued by the government of Curacao.
According to the owners of the resource, they initially created a platform that offers fair and transparent conditions for making bets, and will also become one of the leaders in the eSports industry in the future. But despite the stated desire to keep up with the times, it seems to us that this betting operator still manages to do this with great difficulty. The company’s team still has to do a huge amount of work to achieve this goal.
The line has a large number of games and events that you can bet on. The most popular games here are CS:GO, Dota 2, League of Legends, StarCraft 2 and Overwatch. Overall, there are over 200 different eSports events on offer every day, so you’ll have plenty to choose from.
The section of the Counter-Strike game is the most extensively presented, including major tournaments, competitions held by StarLadder, ESL, Dreamhack, ECS, CS Summit, Intel Extreme Masters (IEM), BLAST pro series, WESG, PGL and various minor tournaments ranked lower by Valve base. For example, betting on DOTA 2 includes the biggest competitions throughout the year such as International, WESG, Beyond the Summit, StarLadder, DreamLeague, Major and Minor, as well as many other large and small tournaments.
And for the fans of the game League of Legends, the world championship, LoL master series, LoL championships, professional league and many other tournaments of various levels and prestige are presented. At the same time, Starcraft fans can bet on the biggest tournaments, including WESG, GPL, WCS and others. But what we didn’t really like was the lack of painting in the line, since here it is possible to bet exclusively on the winners of the matches.
At the same time, the bookmaker on the site uses a pool-based betting system. This means that users do not play against the bookmaker, but against each other, as on betting exchanges. At the same time, as a payment for the service for each pool, the brand takes a certain percentage of the commission, which can range from 1 to 30% in different cases.
When compared with competitors, you can see that Mid.Bet noticeably loses to them in this type of game. Firstly, not all matches are streamed live, and secondly, customers do not have the opportunity to bet on expanded markets. Therefore, the Live-bets section looks somehow lonely on the site and one gets the impression of some kind of incompleteness.
