eSports Betting Offer
The full list of categories at Roy Richie includes 30, mostly sports, even though you can also bet on politics and other popular events (under ‘Specials’). When it comes to sports, all major and renowned sports are featured, as well as less popular sports such as handball, badminton, table tennis and surfing.
When it comes to eSports, Roy Richie offers League of Legends, Dota 2, CS: GO, Warcraft 3, and the leagues and tournaments are divided into national and international. You can also choose to see just the events that are going to start in the upcoming 24 hours, 2 days, 3 days, etc.
When it comes to bet types (markets), there are match markets, as well as tournament/outright betting markets. If wish to place a wager on a particular match, there will be few available options – match betting, handicap betting and over/under betting, where the last is betting on the total number of rounds/maps, depending on the game and tournament format and specifics. You may also bet on the outcome of individual maps, i.e. which team is going to win which map.
Adding a selection to the bet slip can be done with a single click of the mouse on the odds for the particular selection. You may add multiple selections to your bet slip and you may choose whether you wish to wager single bets on each or some of the selections, or combine them in a combo or a system bet, or perhaps both. However, the options for system and combo bets on eSports are somewhat limited compared to the options for bets on conventional sports.
You can also bet on tournaments leagues even before they have begun. You can place a bet on the team that you think is going to win the tournament in question. The odds depend on the reputation of the participating teams and their previous results. You may add these selections to your bet slip along with other selections, but you will only be able to place single wagers on such selections.
Live Betting and Cash Out
Roy Richie supports live betting, there’s even a separate live betting menu which can be accessed from the main horizontal menu on the home page. If you select live betting you will see a list of all events that are already underway and available for betting. Scroll to eSports and see which options are available if you wish to bet live.
On the ‘Live Schedule’ page you can see all upcoming matches that will be available for live betting. Placing a live selection on your bet slip is also done by clicking on the odds, just bear in mind that the live betting odds can change pretty quickly. If you have added a selection and the odds change in the meantime, you will be asked to reconfirm your choice before you place an actual wager.
Roy Richie offers the cash out option which allows punters to settle a bet before all matches featured in a bet slip are over. Complete and partial cash out are available. With complete cash out you get a full payout of the amount that’s available at the time, whereas with partial cash out, you basically re-wager a new amount whilst taking a fraction of the money. The odds for the new wager are calculated on the basis of the odds that are available at the time of cash out.
