Fortnite eSports Betting – Fortnite Betting Sites

Battle Royale games have taken the gaming community by storm. Yes, some of the earliest specimen date all the way back to 2015… but they've become extremely popular in the second half of 2017. More precisely, with the rapid popularity growth of a single game – PUBG. After it hit immense popularity and was shared all over social media, several copycats with interesting (but not groundbreaking) ideas came out to get their own piece of the cake. However, none of them reached any sort of fanbase… until Fortnite came up! One thing is for sure – battle royale games have very high hopes and are looking to become the next big game type in the eSports industry. However, there's one aspect that they will have lots of problems with – maintaining an entertaining watching experience that could promote eSports betting on Fortnite… but more on that later on. For now, let's see what exactly Fortnite is and how can you play it!

Fortnite 101 | Everything you need to know about the game

Fortnite was initially meant to be a tower defense game with Save the World mode being the basis of its existence. In fact, Save the World mode still enjoys quite the popularity… but it's nowhere near the exposure of Fortnite's Battle Royale mode. So, what is it all about? Well, all battle royale games (including both PUBG and Fortnite) rely on one simple concept – place 100 players on a single map and make the last man standing win. It's as simple as that! In terms of Fortnite, the matter is spiced up with carefully balanced building mechanisms which make it evolve from a third-person shooter into a marvelous hybrid. And that's basically the most fun part here – the key is not only to be the most lethal shooter on the map but an admirable builder as well. If you got both skills at a high level, you might just get that sweet, sweet Victory Royale at the end of the match.

If you like what you're seeing so far, perhaps you'd like to try out Fortnite for yourself. It is available across several platforms including PC, Xbox, PS and even smartphones. Best of all – Fortnite is a free-to-play video game with microtransactions tied only to cosmetic changes.

Fortnite eSports betting recommendations

As far as eSports betting on Fortnite is concerned, there still aren't any ongoing (or upcoming) tournaments worth mentioning. However, it's all about to change considering the most recent announcement by Fortnite's makers – Epic Games. Believe it or not, they've actually announced a whopping $1 million in prize pool money for their first competitive season of Fortnite. Even though there is still not a lot of information regarding the actual Fortnite competitive season, one thing is certain – Epic Games will be involved in it all, ensuring the inaugural season reaches their sky-high expectations. For more information on all this please refer to our Epic Games Announces Fortnite eSports Prize Pool news article.

What will betting on Fortnite look like?

There's still a lot of confusion on what exactly will Fortnite betting look like. It's going to be a tricky issue at first, especially considering the fact battle royale games don't fit any conventional eSports type. They're not team based 5v5 matchups or single player 1v1 matchups either. Instead, it's 100 players battling against each other. Sure, we'll definitely see team tournaments too, but it's still going to be a rough start until Epic Games and their partners come up with a winning formula that's going to affect the eSports franchise as well as betting on eSports as well. One thing is for sure though – eSports betting enthusiasts will definitely enjoy betting on Fortnite, but they'll just have to wait a bit longer until the first noteworthy tournament come into play.
