eSports betting per country and market

International eSports Betting

Your region-by-region look at eSports betting

Here at Super eSport Betting we believe that every person should be able to spend their hard-earned money exactly how they want to, and as massive fans of eSports betting ourselves, we definitely believe everyone should be able to get in on some exciting lice eSports betting action. In the world of betting, however, geography plays a pretty big role. Different governments, licenses, and jurisdictions limit which operators can operate in which markets, so not every single operator is available in every region.

People who want to participate in eSports betting need to first find out which operators are actually permitted to operate in the region they’re in. 

Sports betting (and by extension, eSports betting) is often portrayed as an immoral act, especially when put side-by-side with similar forms of gambling like playing poker or buying lottery tickets. Of course, there’s absolutely nothing “bad” or immoral about sports betting at all, and millions of people all over the world find sports betting to be an exciting way to tap into the energy and enthusiasm of competitive events like traditional sports and eSports.

Sports betting is, first and foremost, entertainment. No one thinks twice about a group of guys getting together and spending a few hundred dollars on tickets to a hockey game; however, if those same guys were to spend that same money on getting together at one guy’s house and betting on the outcome of the game, both government and society see it as suddenly different.

Unfortunately, while we believe that people should be free to spend their time and money the way they want to, we’re not the ones who get to make that decision. What we can do, however, is give our readers comprehensive regional guides so that you don’t have to do any of the hard work that comes with finding a good betting operator in your region. 

Below is a list of all of our regional guides, all you need to do is find your country or region, and click on “read more.”

Legal and regulated markets

Many countries throughout Europe fully regulate the online betting industry. This means that operators are required to meet certain criteria in order to qualify to receive licenses to operate in those countries. Some of these countries, such as Malta, issue licenses which enable eSports betting operators to offer their services in multiple countries.

Operators obviously need to pay certain taxes and fees each year as license holders, meaning they contribute positively to the economy of any country they operate in, as well as creating jobs in those markets. A far cry from the “evil” image that betting is sometimes attributed.

More importantly, these licenses ensure that bettors are safe and secure when using the sites, and that bettors have the legal recourse to demand compensation in the event that they are wronged by a betting operator. It’s for this reason that we at Super eSport Betting only recommend betting operators who are in possession of betting licenses. 

The security that these licenses ensures makes payment processing much easier, as credit card companies, e-wallets, and banks are afforded a legal climate in which to operate. Many operators featured on Super eSports Betting allow their users to use their Visa, MasterCard, and Paypal as payment options.
