Heroes of the Storm Betting


Heroes of the Storm (HotS) is a raucous online team brawler, released by Blizzard Entertainment in 2015. This multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game stars characters from prior Blizzard games including Warcraft, StarCraft and Diablo.

Playable heroes include Cassia, Artanis, Tyrande and Rehgar, all powerful warriors with a range of specialist abilities. In the hands of eSports professionals, mouth-watering five-verses-five battles are carried out across multiple different game modes in front of thousands of gaming fans. Players must guide their team to victory across multiple backgrounds, such as Braxis Holdout, Towers of Doom, Infernal Shrines and Warhead Junction.

Players work together as a team, combining individual skill with co-operation to emerge triumphant from these gaming extravaganzas. Each competing professional team in 2017 earns a reported $100,000 for participation, with a reported $3.2 million in HotS prize purses and team bonuses spread throughout the year.

Live betting is sometimes available in a Best of Three or Best of Five format and, when predicting a tournament’s outcome, a team’s personnel and hero types must be taken into consideration. Each hero has a specific ability, so a team purely full of assassins could struggle when facing a more balanced and well-rounded outfit, with a wider range of abilities. Teams have different strategies based on the types of heroes they come up against, and certain maps have specific objectives.

Although HotS tournaments are pretty regular, bookmakers don't offer betting odds on those tournaments as frequently as you would hope. Currently only Betway and Bet365 offer regular HotS betting markets.

The Heroes of the Storm Global Championship (HGC) Finals is the game’s end-of-year showpiece eSports event, held at BlizzCon in November. The winner takes home their share of a cash prize and the competing teams are decided over the preceding months.

There are several qualifying rounds within regional leagues that determine the make-up of the contestants at the HGC Finals, which began in January. The big teams from four main regions – Europe, North America, China and Korea – fight to reach the tournament, along with selected representatives from Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, Southeast Asia and Taiwan.

Prior to the HGC Finals, there’s also a Mid-Season Brawl in June, an elite global competition where 12 professional teams from around the world compete for a huge $250,000 prize pool.
