Counter-Strike: Global Offensive betting odds are available at a number of Australian bookmakers - read on below for information on how to bet on the popular online game.
One of the fastest-growing entertainment industries in the world is the gaming industry, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) is easily the most popular online game to play and bet on.
According to data from PCGamer, CS:GO posted peak users of 767,000 in December 2019 – and with multiple games taking place daily, there’s always action to bet on.
Luckily for Australians, several online bookmakers have comprehensive markets surrounding CS:GO – here’s how to get started on Counter-Strike betting today.
What is Counter-Strike: Global Offensive?
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a first person shooter game that consists of two teams of five players.
One team makes up terrorists, who’s aim is to plant a bomb inside one of the bomb sites before the round timer expires, while the second team attempts to stop them – either by eliminating the terrorists or defusing the bomb before the timer counts down.
It sounds simple, but because each team needs to use different strategies to complete their objectives, all games of CS:GO provide unique entertainment and there’s solid opportunity for betting value should you become a master.
Games are played on ‘Maps’ that differ each time a new game is generated. Each round that a team wins counts as a single point. CS:GO maps are usually played in a best-of-30 format, meaning whoever hits 16 points first wins the map.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Betting Odds
The most popular CS:GO betting markets are the outright winner odds and match odds, so just like in sports betting, you can pick who you think will end up winning the entire tournament, along with individual matches.
Within the individual match betting, you can also bet on other markets such as the correct score and total Maps.
Betting on a particular team to win a Map is another option, as well as the total Maps won within the game.
