Unikrn Enchances The eSports Betting Experience With Exotic Bets

Published: Nov 29, 2015 - Last Updated: Feb 1, 2023

Unikrn, a leading company offering services in the gaming, eSports, and entertainment industry worldwide, has come a long way since its inception in 2014.

Successfully raising funds for its future development, forming strategic relationships to expand its business, and even diving into the integrity aspects of the entire esports betting industry has shown that the guys at Unikrn are fully committed to the field of eSports wagering.

Additionally, the company has introduced many exciting developments for its betting platform, such as the Unikoin, a virtual currency that allows everyone to bet – no matter where in the world they are – along with a global betting arena, which makes the betting experience even more exciting, and a marketplace, where users can put their won Unikoins to work.

With all that said, Unikrn is adding a new twist for its customers: exotic bets.

Advanced style of betting adds more excitement to typical eSports betting experience

In most cases, esports betting revolves around the classic betting options: single and multi bets on an outcome of a match. Even though this type of betting already serves as additional excitement when watching your favorite team play, team Unikrn has now included exotic bets in their product offering.

With these type of bets, which can be strategic and just plain fun, not only the outcome of the match becomes important, but also the aspect of how the match unfolds.

Betting on who can complete a specific objective first

The term “objective” mainly describes actions that the team takes during the game. These can include drawing first blood, being the first to slay the dragon and/or the baron, or being the first to take down a tower.

With a “first blood” bet, the goal is to predict the team that will defeat the first champion. It has only two outcomes, Team A or Team B.

Predicting the team that will first slay the dragon and/or baron, depending on how far long the match been going on, is another exotic bet and also has only two outcomes, Team A or Team B.

Similar to the above two options, predicting the team that will first take down a tower is also a two-outcomes-only bet and the goal is to pick the team who will first take down any of the opponent’s towers.

Splitting the match

Additionally, participants can now also split a specific match (with games like best out of three or best out of five), and bet on who will win the first map and who will win the second map, unlike being only able to bet on one team for the entire match.

“Over 2.5+ – Total Maps over/under” is a bet based on whether there will be 2 or 3 maps played in a match to determine the winning team.

Handicap +1.5 / -1.5

“Handicap” is a virtual advantage that is given to the weaker team in a match to even out the playing field. The team that is considered the weaker team is given a “Handicap +1.5” map advantage over the opposing team that is considered the stronger team.

These are just the newest additions to the Unikrn betting experience – we can be certain there are many more to come in the future.
