Where To Bet Hearthstone Online

Graeme

Now we’ll take a look at the ‘Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft’ eSports franchise, and how to make the most out of it when betting online.

Coming off the back of the hugely popular ‘World of Warcraft’ MMO game, this battle card-game originally came about through the spin-off ‘World of Warcraft Trading Card Game’, dating back to 2006. Later in 2014 the updated version would be commissioned by Blizzard Entertainment, as Hearthstone would then go on to become a popular eSport in its own right.

It would also be Blizzard that would showcase the tournaments themselves, which they’ve managed since the game was first released. Largely taking place at the BlizzCon events, they have come to attract a worldwide audience, with players arriving from all over the globe looking to compete at their North American headquarters in California. With this has also come a massive range of betting opportunities, which we’ll look at in further detail here.

Where To Bet Hearthstone Online:

America: Whilst it all depends upon when you logon, you’ll want to choose the online sportsbook Bovada as your primary port of call. This is because it really provides the most when it comes to Hearthstone, plus it’s extremely simple to use.

Everywhere Else: Most people outside of North America will find that it’s Bet365 Sportsbook that offers the best odds, along with the largest selection of bets when it comes to Hearthstone betting. Really easy to use, it has the most on offer at any given time.

Where To Make Specific Hearthstone Bets:

ESL Polish Championships: The Polish Championship is ran by the ESL Body and in this article I talk about where to bet it as well as betting strategies and what to look out for when betting it.

How To Bet Hearthstone:

Bovada: After selecting the ‘Sports’ tab from the main page, you’ll want to go on and choose the ‘E-Sports’ option down the left hand side. Then you’ll want to click on the ‘All E-Sports’ drop down menu above, and Hearthstone will most likely be under ‘Other E-Sports’, again depending upon when you are logging in, giving you your choices down the middle of the page. All you need to then do is roll down and find it, with the bets being provided below.

Bet365 Sportsbook: From the ‘Esports’ tab down the left-hand side of the page, you should now have all the eSports themselves made available down the center of the screen. The Hearthstone options are typically found further down, as you should then be able to select the given bets underneath.

What Hearthstone Bets/Props Are There?

You’ll mainly find that the bets themselves are largely focused on the outcome of the various matches, although you may also get the chance to bet on smaller props too. These will feature bets such as what decks (cards) are used by certain players, and how they will handle them. Then there’ll be the more common match outcome bets, as you’ll be able to combine them for a far more appealing set of stakes.

Common Hearthstone Betting Questions:

Do I need a working knowledge of Warcraft?

The short answer to this is ‘no’, in that it’s only really related to the Warcraft franchise by brand and name alone, as it’s set in the same universe with many of the same characters, but is completely tangential. If anything it’s closer to ‘Magic: The Gathering’ (in style of gameplay), whilst being a lot more action oriented, with a learning curve that’s far more accessible to both casual players and professionals alike.

Where To Watch Hearthstone Online:

Using the Twitch streaming service as its primary operator, Blizzard have made this the main place to go when watching any live-stream games.

Hearthstone Betting Strategy:

As a game focused on individual players, you’ll need to analyze each of them, and their various strategies. This will include taking into consideration how they build their decks (essentially being what cards they typically use), and how they manage board control (i.e. playing the game itself). Looking at their past games, you should also pay attention to who they’re playing, as this will be a large indicator of how their styles will clash, something which they’ll be taking into account too.

You can find this out by analyzing their style through Twitch, along with keeping up-to-date through their social-media (i.e. Twitter), as this will give you a clearer picture of where their head is at prior to the game itself. Bringing together all these elements, you should then be able to combine them for a much enticing and exciting set of stakes to be played when betting.
