Where To Bet Fortnite Online

Graeme

Fortnite is, of course, one of the most popular online games there is. Essentially a battle royal game featuring a combination of gunplay and building, it has taken the world by storm since it launched in July 2017.

Fortnite itself is broken up into seasons and that’s where the majority of the gameplay takes place. There’s no betting in regard to the seasons itself – however we’re starting to see more organized tournaments take place, of which you can actually bet on them. Such as the Fortnite World Cup.

In this article, I’ll cover everything in regard to betting on Fortnite from what you can actually bet on – tournaments, type of bets, etc – as well as where to watch what you bet on, and offer up some strategy as well.

Where To Bet Fortnite Online:

America: For Americans, the best place to bet eSports without fail is Bovada and that holds true for Fortnite. They offer up different betting options depending on the tournament. For the Fortnite World Cup, for example, betting options include being able to pick the individual winner but also the region of the winner – the later being a nice one to bet if you want to cover a group of players.

Everywhere Else: When it comes to eSport betting, my favourite online sportsbook is Bet365 Sportsbook and that holds strong for Fortnite. They have the best interface for sports betting in my opinion, and they always seem to be able to offer just a little bit more than other online sportsbooks when it comes to betting options. For the Fortnite World Cup for example, along with betting on both duos and solos you can bet on the tournament winner, the region of winner AND back someone to get a top 3 finish.

Where To Make Specific Fortnite Bets:

Fortnite World Cup: The inaugural Fortnite World Cup began in 2019 and is ran by Epic Games. In this article I talk about how to bet it, where to bet it and what strategies to use if you wish to bet on the Fortnite World Cup.

How to Bet Fortnite Online

Bovada: eSports is popular enough here that it is usually listed under the “Quick Links” section under Sports now. Bovada use filters so once you click on eSports just click the drop-down “All eSports” and choose Fortnite to see available betting options for Fortnite.

Bet365 Sportsbook: Once you visit Bet365, there is a left sidebar. It’s sorted alphabetically and you click on “Esports”. Everything is then there again sorted alphabetically. Depending on the esport and tournament there may be multiple listings. You can click on each one to expand it and see the available bets for it. Click on the bet you wish to make and it adds it to you bet slip to the right.

What Fortnite Bets/Props Are There?

When there is a famous player involved, there are usually player props surrounding them. In the 2018 tournament featuring celebrities for example there was numerous player props and many featured Fortnite.

On a general basis, there are usually three bets available for a tournament. One is To Win Outright which is backing the winner of the tournament regardless of whether it is duos or solos.

You can also bet on a Top 3 Finish where the odds won’t be as good but if you think someone can go deep in a tournament, it’s best to bet them here.
You never know how pressure will affect them.

Finally Region of Winner where you can back what region such as North America, the winner will come from.

Common Fortnite Betting Questions:

Why Isn’t Ninja in the 2019 Fortnite World Cup?

Ninja was unable to qualify for the 2019 World Cup. He did have one final chance in the final qualifying rounds however was struggling with illness. He made the ultimate qualifier but him and Reverse2k only finished with 64 points. They needed 89 points to qualify.

Can you bet on Duos at the Fortnite World Cup?

Yes you can. The listed sportsbooks above offer betting on both singles and duos.

Where To Watch Fortnite Online:

Epicgames.com is the best place to watch Fortnite online as they stream tournaments there. Or you can watch individual players play at Twitch if you want to get an idea for betting.

Fortnite Betting Strategy:

Skill is obviously a big factor in Fortnite. Everyone knows the name Ninja and there is a reason for that – much like everyone knows the names of poker players such as Phil Ivey or Daniel Negreanu. Luck can only take you so far.

Look at the latest seasons stats and see who is performing well. Then I would advise betting on them for a “Top 3” Finish. There’s a lot of
pressure when it gets down to it with so much money on the line. Most people will struggle at that point and it can become a real crap shoot.
