You may have read a lot of esports betting news by now since they’re everywhere. Major esports competitions and tournaments for these games amount to $1 million prize pools so it’s impossible that you haven’t encountered a single esports game in your entire existence. You have surely heard of all the games that make gamblers and players lose their minds. But to give you more detailed information, here’s a list of top global esports games.


  1. League of Legends (LoL) - a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) video game developed and designed by Riot Games. Players can seamlessly play the game via Microsoft Windows and MacOS. The game was released in 2009 and many claim that it was inspired by other esports games like Warcraft III and DotA 2. In LoL, players of the two opposing teams control a champion of their own choosing (depending on the tournament) and work together to destroy the enemy’s “Nexus”.

  1. Defense of the Ancient (DotA 2) - a free-to-play MOBA game created by Valve Corporation in 2013 as a standalone sequel to the first DotA. The game is a match between two teams of five players each settled on a base in the match’s map. Each team works together to destroy the “Ancient” of the other team while simultaneously protecting their own.

  1. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) - also a MOBA game that stands as the fourth version of the Counter-Strike series, the previous ones are the first Counter-Strike, CS: Condition Zero, and CS: Source. The objective of the game is to play the part of a Terrorist or the Counter-Terrorists (depending on your team’s group). Players will either plant or defuse a bomb, and rescue or take hostages. Because of the inclusion of “Skin gambling” in CS:GO betting, you might read all esports news claiming it is as one of the profitable esports games in the world.

  1. Overwatch -  a team-based, multiplayer online first-person shooter (FPS) video game released by Blizzard Entertainment in 2016. The game features a squad combat between two teams with 6 players each. Every player chooses a hero with special features from the list of characters available, the combination of powerful heroes for each team should counter the attacks and eventually defeat the other team.
