Where To Bet LoL Region of Winner

Graeme

Here we are going to focus on the eSports game League of Legends and how and where to make a bet on the region of winner.

Although it’s a pretty simple bet, it’s a great way of getting into the world of eSports betting, or simply for those who just want to make a quick, casual and easy bet. It then gives spectating the games throughout the championship season that extra edge when there’s a bit of money riding on them all.

So, without further ado, we’re going to take a look into what exactly this bet is and how you can make it, along with a few extra tips and tricks along the way.

What is LoL Region of Winner Betting?

As you’d expect, it’s a bet which does exactly what it says, in that you’re essentially betting on the region/country of the league winners and not the winners themselves. With League of Legends tournaments being specifically broken up into regions, this makes it an extremely simple bet to place early on in the championships.

Run by Riot Games themselves, they organize many of the professional LoL leagues, all which take place worldwide, and these consist of:

  • League of Legends Pro League (LPL): this is the top level league in China.
  • League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK): the main competition in South Korea.
  • League of Legends Masters Series (LMS): the top league for Taiwan.
  • Garena Premier League (GPL): the professional leagues for Southeast Asia.
  • League Championship Series (LCS): the professional leagues for both North America and Europe.

Whilst there are other leagues too, these are the main ones used to find the winning entrants to the World Championship, from which the winning team and region will emerge. This is where your LoL region of winner bet will come in, and there are many sportsbooks that you can make this through.

How To Bet LoL Region of Winner:

Bovada: From the main page you want to go to the left-hand side, selecting the sports option, which is at the top above the ‘casino’ tab. Next you will again need to go to left-hand side, selecting the eSports tab at the bottom, just underneath the boxing option. Here you will get all the all the eSports, with League of Legends being at the top. At the top select ‘League of Legends’ under the ‘All E-Sports’ scroll-down tab. Usually the ‘region of winner’ selection will be at the top, but if it isn’t simply select the ‘World Championship’ option from the ‘All League of Legends’ scroll-down tab at the top. From here, you can then easily select whichever region/s you want.

Bet365 Sportsbook: Under the sports section on the main page (navigated from the first option at the top) find your way down the left-hand side to the eSports tab (which is approximately the twelfth option down just under darts). Here you will find all the eSports, and the one you’ll be looking for will be the third one down being ‘LoL – World Championship’ (just under the DOTA2 selections). Selecting the ‘Region of Winner’ option, you can then proceed to make your bet using the betting slip box above on the right hand side, where you can place your chosen stake, or bet the maximum.

LoL Region of Winner Betting Strategy:

As this is a pretty straight-forwards all-or-nothing bet, one thing that many do is combine it with other bets in order to raise the stakes. With the odds being continually in the favour of certain regions (looking primarily at South Korea), then this is typically the best course of action for the more serious better looking to make a profit.

That being said, it is definitely all about timing, as you really need to pick your moment. Obviously nothing is certain and, with factors such as some teams playing differently against other teams (choice of players themselves come into this), then it’s essential to keep on top of all the latest news. For example, if a key mid-player is removed for whatever reason at the eleventh hour, then the winning streak of the entire region could be thrown into disarray. It’s not unheard of, and that surprise turnaround could potentially provide you with that all important grand payout.
