CS:GO Betting Types
In any e-sports betting there are two ways in which you can bet on the game. In outcomes betting, which is the simplest option, New Zealand based punters place their bets on who will straight out win the match – i.e. team/player Y vs. team/player Z. In proposition betting which is also known as parlay type betting, punters put their CS:GO betting predictions on specific point outcomes for each game. To make these kind of bets you will need to have an understanding of the CS:GO teams that are playing to enable you to estimate results such as ‘Team Y wins 4-0 of the games played’, or ‘Team Z loses, with handicap +2 games’.
CS:GO Games Modes
There are four game modes that New Zealand punters need to be familiar with when placing your CS:GO betting predictions.
Classic Competitive: Players join a queue and play 5v5 best of thirty matches, and use standard rules playing on any of the classic type maps. Can be played a team or individually.
Classic Casual: Casual matches are not for betting mode, but are great fun to play if you don’t want to commit to a whole match. You play at your own speed and pace and can get body armor, bonus rewards and defusal kits for kills.
Demolition: This is a faster paced game where you are granted a start up weapon and the players swap turns attacking and defending any single bombsite through a whole series of maps. For each kill you get given a more superior weapon.
Arms Race: This format is gun-progression mode with a load of close contact combat and instant respawning. You get new weapons after each kill that you register. Whoever gets the golden knife is the winner of the match.
