Valorant HLTV

What is HLTV

HLTV.org is the largest and most popular competitive CS:GO website. It enables users to find upcoming matches, see live scores, team rosters, and player profiles and stats. HLTV also has a really popular forum and allows users to comment on each match. They have a decent news section and often post exlcusive news and updates from the world of CSGO esports. Owing to how CSGO is one of the most popular esports, it makes sense to have a site dedicated entirely to it. However, the popularity of Valorant is growing considerably and it might soon push CSGO off the top charts.

Which are the new HLTV for Valorant

There are a few sites which are hoping to become the new HLTV for Valorant. They have copied the style and logic of HLTV and populated it with Valorant data. These top sites to look at are:
VLR.gg
TheSpike.gg
Tracker.gg
Cyphercam.org
Scoped.gg
Valking.gg

Airtel India eSports Tour

Bharti Airtel (“Airtel”), India’s largest integrated telecommunications company, and NODWIN Gaming, South Asia’s leading esports company, announced a partnership to further grow esports in India. Given India’s large youth population and rapidly growing internet penetration, esports has the potential to become a large part of the country’s mainstream sporting culture. It is estimated that by 2021, online gaming will become a USD one billion plus market in India with over 620 million gamers.

The partnership has been kicked off with the launch of Airtel India Esports Tour, which is the first and largest property of its kind in this segment. It will also have a national ranking and awarding system for Indian Esports players based on their year-long performance across top tournaments will be used as a base to create a points table for all participants.

Airtel India Esports Tour will initially cover all NODWIN tournaments across gaming titles of PUBG Mobile, CS: GO, Clash of Clans, FIFA, etc. The coverage will extend to all iconic NODWIN tournaments such as the India Premiership by NODWIN, Dreamhack India, The Northeast Cup, KO Fight Nights and PAN Fest. This will also cover NODWIN operated tournaments such as the PUBG Mobile Pro league in India.

Post the culmination of the annual tour, the final leaderboard across games will be presented to recognize and reward the winners at an awards show celebrating the key players in the ecosystem. The esports athletes, the teams, the talent, the best plays, etc. The broadcast of the Airtel India Esports Tour will be available on Airtel’s digital platforms and help with taking this emerging format to newer audiences.

Adarsh Nair, Chief Product Officer, Bharti Airtel said: “At Airtel, it has always been our aspiration to support a digital India. Gaming is the next frontier of entertainment and it gives us great pleasure to announce our partnership with NODWIN to unlock the potential of E-sports in India. E-sports is taking a higher share of where our youth spend their time and we look forward to a deep partnership with NODWIN to evolve this space and support the youth in India.”

“NODWIN Gaming believes that by binding the elements of independent tournaments into a single storyline we will give rise to a new culture in the competitive world of Indian esports. The teams and players will now look up to perform throughout the year rather than focusing on few big standalone tournaments in a year.”said Akshat Rathee, Founder and MD, NODWIN Gaming.

Initially, the Airtel India Esports Tour will be seeded by NODWIN by its extensive tournament network but will aspire to be a platform where all tournaments will carry weightage independent of the organizer. The ecosystem will allow the flexibility of choice for players to play what they want and when they want.

Deposit Bonuses from esports betting sites

Getting an edge over your chosen eSportsbook is made easier with a bonus. Most esports bookmakers will offer bonuses to players that make a deposit at their site, while others may offer cashback or refer a friend schemes that can help provide an initial bankroll boost. Choosing a bonus isn’t as simple as finding the best deal and taking it. The following article explores the necessary steps involved with eSports bonuses and how to make the most of them.

An overview of eSports bonuses

As the esports betting scene grows, so does the number of online bookies add esports to their offering, which increases competition between these esports betting sites. In a bid to stand out against competitors, these sites offer bonuses to entice new punters and keep existing punters coming back for more. This means that, whether you want to bet on Dota 2 or CS: GO — or any other esports title — there’s a betting bonus for you.

If you’ve played online casino games, or bet at a traditional sportsbook, you’ll have an idea of the types of esports betting bonuses available, but if you’re newer to the game, we’d recommend reading our quick guide to picking a great esports betting bonus. In this article we shed some light on the key bonus variations, as well as providing some insight into what to look out for when selecting an esports betting site.

No Deposit Bonuses

The no deposit bonus is one of the most sought-after bonuses in esports, and in gambling more generally. This bonus is exactly what it says it is: all new players can claim the bonus without needing to deposit cash into their betting account. These bonuses often come in the form of free bets or free cash that can be used to bet on a range of esports matches. The lack of credit card requirement makes no deposit bonuses extremely tempting for those who want access to a quick — albeit small — esports betting bonus without the risk of betting their own cash.

No deposit bonuses are often hard to release – if they weren’t, the esportsbook would stand to lose heavily. Before grabbing an esports no deposit bonus, be sure to check the terms and conditions to find out whether you’ll be jumping through hoops to get hold of it.

Deposit Bonuses

The most common form of esports bonus is the deposit bonus. Typically associated with a player’s first deposit, a deposit bonus will credit a percentage of the amount deposited to your account. For example, a 100% first deposit bonus up to $200 will allow a player to deposit $200 and receive $200 back as a bonus. Of course, the limit means that if a player were to deposit $300, they would still only receive $200 back as a bonus. These esports bonuses can also be matched at different percentages. For example, a 50% bonus would credit half of the deposit back to the player, and a 200% bonus would credit double the amount deposited.

Deposit bonuses may include deposits that are made after your first deposit, and ones that run indefinitely are called “reload bonuses” and apply to all deposits made at the eSportsbook. These can be used to reward punters for their loyalty.

Esports Free Bets

There’s no better way to test an esportsbook than by getting hold of a free bet or two. Some esports bookmakers will offer these as a promotion to attract large volumes of new players into their platform, and you’ll often need to deposit a certain amount or make a bet of a certain value to activate this esports bonus. Sadly, free bets don’t come around too often, but when they do, be sure you pounce on them!

Cashback

A cashback bonus can be considered a safety net that’s placed around your next wager. Cashback promotions are usually limited in esports and will only ever be ‘switched on’ periodically, often for a few weeks or a month at a time. During a cashback offer, you can expect to see a percentage of your losses returned directly back to your account. For this reason, cashback offers allow players to reduce risk slightly, and softens the blow of a particularly unlucky loss.

Not all bonuses are equal

While some of these esports bonuses may seem very similar, it’s essential that you check the requirements for each bonus as the difficulty of unlocking and withdrawing your winnings as cash could vary enormously between each bonus. These restrictions usually come in the form of wagering requirements, whereby you must wager a certain percentage (or ‘rollover’) of the amount deposited before withdrawing the bonus winnings. These rollovers are designed to reduce the risk for the esports bookmaker. High wagering requirements are not a good thing for the player, and could mean you never access your winnings, so watch out!

How to claim an eSports bonus

Claiming an esports bonus is quick and easy. Here’s how:

  1. Compare esports bonuses

Pick a betting site with bonuses to find one that best suits your esports betting preferences. Consider wagering requirements and betting restrictions as you compare sites.

  1. Sign up

Found a favourite? Follow the links to head straight to the registration page where you can create an account. You’ll need to enter some personal information, but this should only take a few minutes.

  1. Deposit

In order to activate your bonus, you’ll need to deposit some funds into your account. Top esports betting sites will have a range of banking options, from credit cards to e-wallets and prepaid vouchers, so there’s something to suit everyone.

  1. Claim bonus

While many bookies will credit the bonus to your account automatically, others will require manual opt-in. Check for this to avoid missing out!

  1. Bet

You’re ready!

Now you’re up to speed when it comes to esports betting bonuses, you’re ready to choose a bookmaker and claim your very own bonuses! 

Herewith a list of sites which offer deposit bonuses for eSports booking:

Lootbet Welcome Bonus

At the time of writing this review the current bonus from Lootbet is a 100% match bonus up to €100 for new customers that can be redeemed by entering the code “LOOT” during your first deposit. From the point of your deposit, you have 180 days to your use bonus, or it may be removed from your betting wallet. The only stipulation with the deposit is that it must be a minimum of $5 deposited however the more you deposit the more chance you have at optimizing profit. In order to cash in from this bonus, the winnings from the offer need to be rollover at to 10 times the amount of the initial offer. The bets themselves must be placed with odds of 1.90 or higher otherwise it will be void and won’t count towards the required bonus amount.

Rivalry Welcome Bonus

For existing customers, esports betting on the platform gets better when one has VIP rewards. You get up to $350 in boosted earnings, and there are no hidden fees. Those who would like to join VIP need to use a promo code. New punters on the site receive a welcome bonus of $1.5, and conditions for using it are straightforward. It is a pure-bred eSports site, so if you are looking for casinos, check elsewhere.

Uploading or withdrawing funds from a betting site can be a painstakingly difficult experience, especially if you sign up with shoddy sportsbooks. However, Rivalry has a mission of the making the enterprise clean, trustworthy and safe for all. Thus, in walking that talk, they do not only operate under a licensing of Isle of Man Gambling Commission but also makes it easy for bettors to deposit/withdraw money.

VieGG Welcome Bonus

So just to make sure that you understand what the Vie.gg welcome bonus is all about, you can only access this deal if you are a new customer who has never placed a bet at the site before. From here you will need to make an opening deposit within the first seven days of registering your account, and then you must make your first esports bet of €20 or higher.

If your opening bet wins, then you get to keep your winnings as normal. But if your initial bet loses, then the bonus will kick in and you will be given a losing bet refund that matches your opening betting stake by up to €20. The losing bet refund will be granted in extra bet tokens that must be used within 14 days of your opening bet being settled.

You can only use your extra bets on odds of up to 3.50, and if you win with your extra bets, then there are some wagering requirements to meet. These state that you must bet the full value of your winnings four times before you can withdraw your boosted profits. In addition to this, Vie.gg state that you cannot withdraw the bonus itself, only the extra esports betting profits that are generated as a result of using the sign-up offer. The bonus terms and conditions also state that the most that you can win with an extra bet stake is a maximum of €500.

As betting on esports is notoriously unpredictable, then the Vie.gg welcome bonus offer could be a great option to those who are new to wagering on competitive gaming tournaments. This is because it allows you to make a newbie error with your first bet, and then you can get a nice refund that can be used to see if you can make a success of your next bet.

It’s a question of taste as to whether this kind of risk-free bet offer is better than a standard matched deposit deal. In the past we have seen plenty of very generous matched deposit bonuses that promise you hundreds of pounds worth of extra bets, and in comparison, the Vie.gg welcome bonus might seem modest.

However, all betting fans know that any bonus is only as good as the wagering conditions that are attached to it. Having to bet any winnings used with the extra bets four times is a relatively simple task, especially as many similar promotions require you to wager your bonus dozens of times before you can withdraw your winnings.

The Vie.gg bonus is also a little unusual in that it gives you maximum odds that you can wager on, rather than minimum odds. As a result, you shouldn’t be forced into placing too many risky bets with your bonus which is just another reason as to why the Vie.gg sign up offer could be well-suited to newcomers to esports betting.

Luckbox Welcome Bonus

Players who register on Luckbox will have their deposit doubled. Simply use the bonus code GLHF and deposit any figure to receive a 100% welcome bonus. This means that if you deposit £20, you will receive £20, and if you deposit £50, you will receive £50. The maximum bonus you can receive is £100.

 How to Claim the Luckbox 100% Welcome Bonus:

1. Register on Luckbox

2. Make your deposit

3. The bonus will be credited immediately

Unikrn Welcome Bonus

Here are two forms of Unikrn bonus offers – bonuses for those who use real cash and offers for those who use Unikoins. These are quite interesting and provide different ways to earn prizes and bonus funds. A detailed description below of the two types of:

Unikrn bonuses:

Cash Players – For those using traditional deposit methods such as Visa, there is a simple but beneficial welcome offer. New players can receive a 100% matched deposit bonus of up to $50.00. The bonus funds can only be used to place $5 bets. Furthermore, there is a 1x playthrough requirement, and odds must be 1.5 or greater.

Unikoin Players – For those using the platforms special currency, there is some awesome jackpots and prizes that can be won. Users must complete different quests and daily tasks to receive various rewards such as Unikoins and prize tickets.

WinnersBet Welcome Bonus

After verifying your email address, head to the Bonuses section of your account and click on the ‘CLAIM’ button to activate your 100% up to €50 bonus, before making your first deposit.

  • A minimum deposit of €10 is required to claim this bonus.
  • The bonus is a matched deposit of 100% up to €50.
  • The maximum bonus amount is €50.
  • The total desposit and bonus amount must be wagered five (5) times before any funds can be withdrawn.
  • Only single bets placed and fully settled at minimum odds of 1.80 will count towards the wagering requirement.

ArcaneBet welcome Bonus

ArcaneBet has an exceptional welcome offer for new customers. This promises to give you up to €30 in extra betting funds, and it comes in the form of a 100% matched deposit deal. As a result, if you are a brand new customer at ArcaneBet, then you just have to register a new account, enter the arcane30 Arcanebet promo code, make your deposit, and then you will get that amount boosted by 100% up to €30.

Like most esports betting promotions, the current ArcaneBet welcome bonus has some important small print that you will need to be aware of. The bonus terms and conditions state that in order to make a withdrawal of the bonus and your extra profits, you will need to meet the wagering conditions. This means that you must bet the full value of your bonus at least 15 times on any odds of 1.85 or higher. You get 180 days to complete this task, otherwise you might see your bonus declared invalid. 

GGBet Welcome Bonus

So, let’s take a closer look at this welcome bonus deal from GG.BET. The fact that they are willing to give you €200 extra in esports betting funds is reasonably respectable, and whilst there are larger esports betting promotions out there, this one still has the potential to seriously boost your initial betting profits.

The new GG.BET welcome bonus is very easy to activate. Just by creating a new account, entering the GG.BET bonus code and making a deposit, you could be in line to get their bonus. GG.BET don’t have any limitations over what kinds of payment methods can be used to access this sign up offer.

The fact that you can get a 100% matched deposit boost sounds like great news. But you must remember that you will need to meet the brand’s wagering conditions before you can make a successful withdrawal with your bonus funds.

These wagering conditions are admittedly tough. The fact that you have to bet the total amount of your welcome bonus 20 times might be pretty tricky, but I’m glad to report that GG.BET allow you to bet on all of the esports games available so that you can pick and choose from any CSGO, LoL or Dota 2 odds that are of 1.75 or higher.

However, you must remember that you must meet the wagering requirements within 14 days, otherwise your bonus will become invalid.

EGB Welcome Bonus

The sign-up bonus is a generous one, and the player can get up to a maximum of $600 as a welcome bonus. But, in order to be eligible for this 100% bonus offer, the new member must first make a real cash deposit to his or her account. The bonus offered by the company is in dollars, and this is very useful for all US customers. Therefore, it is one of the best EGB United States betting website. The bonus points are also added to the account of the customer when he places a bet.

Another bonus offer for the customers is the “Tell a Friend” offer. It is obvious from the offer that you need to refer a friend about this online eSports betting website. If he joins EGB, then you will receive a bonus of up to $50. Apart from this, the eSports betting website also offers regular bonuses and promotions for its members to get double or half the amount that they make as a deposit as a bonus.

CyberBet

By signing up to Cyber.bet as a brand-new customer, you can look forward to getting a Cyber.bet €10 free bet to use to boost your esports betting profits. You don’t need a bonus code to get this deal, but you will need to make a qualifying deposit of at least €10, and if you do this, then Cyber.bet will give you €10 of extra bets. However, there are some important wagering requirements that must be taken care of. To summarize:

  • Cyber.bet €10 free bet bonus for new customers
  • No Cyber.bet bonus code necessary, but make a €10 opening deposit
  • Extra bet tokens are valid for 14 days after activating the bonus
  • Use extra bet tokens on single esports bets with odds of 1.50 or higher
  • Wagering conditions of five times the bonus if you win with the extra bets

Thunderpick Welcome Bonus

When you first land on the Thunderpick page, you’ll see that up to €500 in bonus money is offered. Apparently, this is a 5% deposit offer, where you can get up to €500 extra. This means, you’d have to deposit €10,000 to claim the full offer. On the upside, there don’t seem to be wagering requirements. But with such amounts, extra wagering really shouldn’t be necessary anyway.

Beyond that, there’s a referral scheme that requires you to have a Steam account through which you can refer Thunderpick to your friends. Your rewards are Thundercoins.

It’s also possible to earn Thundercoins by playing CS:GO, Dota 2 or PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

Punt Welcome Bonus
At the time of writing the article, punt.gg doesn’t offer any signup bonuses.

Midnite Welcome Bonus

New customers receive £5 in Bet Credits if they deposit and bet £25 with minimum odds of 1.50 or more. Unfortunately, no additional information is available at the time of writing.

VulkanBet Welcome Bonus
Vulkanbet has great offerings in markets and promos are among their greatest features, while the icing on the cake is their intriguing 100% Vulkanbet sign up bonus of up to €100. You can claim it right now by creating your new account, making a deposit and you will see your balance double to a total of €200

The VulkanBet bonus code will match your first three deposits: Deposit 1 will be matched up to €50, Deposit 2 will be matched up to €75, and Deposit 3 will be matched up to €100. Minimum deposit to claim each bonus is €20. Your bonus credit can only be used in the VulkanBet Esports section.
