Due to the rapid increase in popularity of cyber sports a lot of new bookmakers specialized in this particular kind of entertainment appeared. Most of these companies are rather new and E-Gaming Bets founded in 2011 (and called EGB since 2015) can be considered an actual old-timer among them. That company was registered in Costa Rica off-shore zone and they work on the basis of the local license. There is also information saying that they have the gambling certificate of the Curacao fiscal authorities. The headquarters of the company are based in Costa Rica and Malta.
Residents of the USA, Great Britain, Singapore, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Israel, Cyprus, Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Australia, Statia and Saba, and St. Maarten should be careful - it's illegal to access the bookie's website. So make sure to check the restricted territories list.
E-Gaming Bets Website
Despite the fact that the website of the company egb.com is rather new, it still has been through a few updates which let it look rather modern and attractive. The design of the site is mostly in black while the widgets and icons are white and red. This color scheme isn’t very comfortable and may make the eyes of the user tired after a long period of work there.
The resource was adopted for the operation in 11 basic languages including English and Russian. Some localizations are really far from perfect. Some of the sections are only available in English. The design of the website looks rather comfy, all of the blocks and widgets are easy to fins. The good drive lets the site work without lags and crashes on high speed.
The owners also decided to include the online broadcasts of the events. The user can watch the sports competitions and also the interviews of the tournaments hosts and gamers and to hear the opinion of the experts on the outcomes of the upcoming events. There is also a live chat where the players can communicate with each other or address the admins of the website for some help if required.
The site still has some of the serious drawbacks. First of all, there is no section of statistics. The results of the past competitions are only available during two days and the information on the finished events is shown in the main block.
The users who prefer mobile betting can upload the app from Google Play for their Android devices. The app can also be uploaded from the main website of the bookmaker.
Money Line, Action Line, Odds
E-Gaming Bets is one of the first companies in the world operation only in the sector of the cybersports. There is no traditional kind of sports betting and the ordinary cappers can find the money line a little too poor. Yet, those who like to bet on cyber sports may find a wide range of competitions which can satisfy both the beginners and the professionals.
The list of the upcoming events is given in the section “Table (Simple Bets)”. 11 kinds of cybersports are available. The multiplayer games like Dota 2, Counter-Strike, StarCraft 2, Quake Champions, League of legends, Hearthstone are widely represented and yet those who like Smite, Overwatch and Pubg will find something interesting to do there. Both local and international tournaments are represented well on the website. Yet, the users of the EGB bookmaker say that the analytics don’t pay enough attention to the Live betting as there are usually three to five events one can bet on online.
Cybersports don’t have a very rich action line especially compared to the traditional football or basketball. The users mostly have to choose from a couple of markets and not more than that. The situation is a bit different with the big international competitions. The users can bet on the outcome of the match and also on some of the events happening during the match itself. As for the odds, they are lower than the average on the market in that same sector.
Every new player gets the bonus of a 100% percent from the sum up to $600. The bonus money are divided to 5 parts and the player needs to finish the first one to start the second one and so on. There is one more interesting thing EGB provide. It’s the fact that they have their own loyalty program. The player gets points for each dollar he bets and those points can be exchanged back for dollars where 1000 points cost $1.
