So first off is the obvious one of course, real money websites. There is pros and cons to sites such as this, and I will give you guys a list of sites that I know are reliable and what not, however by no means is it a complete list of sites as there are hundreds of other sites like this.
Skrill / Credit Cards etc
PayPal / Credit Cards etc
PayPal / Skrill / Credit Cards
PayPal / Skrill / Credit Cards / Netteller
Bitcoin / PayPal / Skrill / Credit Cards etc

Now, I won’t be able to tell you the exact laws for every single country in existence, however I can run down the basics. Real money betting is not legal in every country out there, for those where it is legal you’ll also have to be over 18 to do any form of betting (for some countries it’s 21), you’re responsible for swatting up on your local laws. You are best off Googling your country and seeing what betting laws they have. Also make sure to see if you have to pay taxes on winnings to the Government and what not. This is not skin betting, this is regulated, make sure to carefully research your countries laws to prevent getting into any sort of trouble. If you start getting some major successes in real money betting you’ll need to take taxes into account too, but this is a good problem to have!
Here I found a useful link which can be useful for you guys. http://www.gamblingsites.org/laws/
So to close this up I will give out a few other small tips and just talk about what I think about skin betting essentially being done, as it seems at the moment. This all essentially means there will be less bettors, however that is for the better because the majority of people who will not be able to bet anymore are ones that shouldn’t be due to age, or country they are from or whatever, basically illegal gambling is cut down. Also, if you are from one of the places that can use sites like these, it was stupid to use skins initially I must say. When winning with skins and wanting to cashout, you have to pay about 35% tax on every withdraw because of selling the skins for real money, that is ridiculous. With these sites, if I am transferring funds to PayPal I am literally losing 2%. With now wisening up and using these sort of sites, I am saving 33% on every cashout I make, that is massive. So overall, the scene will struggle a bit since numbers will go down and what not, probably more throws to raise money by scumbags and what not, however still, if you can still bet, this should be better for you long term. Overall, satisfied, CSGO betting by no means is dead, not at all.
Some quick tips, most of you will be coming over from Lounge, they used percentages as odds, this is a good website to convert odds as most websites do not have percentage odds. https://www.aceodds.com/bet-calculator/odds-converter.html
The odds on real money sites are not bad at all. Sure when Lounge used to take 0% tax sure their odds did not seem that appealing, but for some time now even Lounge has been taking tax, and if you compare Lounge rewards to Bet365 for example, often times one or the other is slightly better or they are the same, so no , the odds are not horrible.
Real money sites tend to limit your account if you keep winning, as you are not profitable for them. By limit I mean your max bet amount, so it is a smart idea to make accounts on multiple sites.

When you first start out you’ll be tempted to try to bet as frequently as possible, don’t. Wait for matches with good odds where you or the predictors know the teams. Never force yourself to bet, bet on matches that you are confident in. You may go days or weeks without placing a bet, you’re not in a rush, wait for bets you are comfortable and confident in and profit should follow.
If there’s any uncertainty, don’t place a bet. Save your skins for another day. There will be plenty of other matches that you can bet on.
Betting is always risky, that’s unavoidable. But staying inside a ‘safe zone’ will help cover you off from some really silly bets. When starting out with a low inventory, large bets placed on matches with 80%+ odds aren’t going to return much in general (on lounge, even less due to the inconsistent returns) but you’re still risking a large amount of your inventory for very little.
Equally, odds below 30% sound very, very attractive with huge returns possible. But if you don’t know the teams or all the details, it’s very possible the team doesn’t stand any chance. If you think there might be a chance, reduce the size of the stake or consider an ICB.
Always bet with a percentage of your inventory. Think, what happens if you lose an ‘All in’ bet, do you stop betting for the rest of your life, or just get your wallet out and go again? You may think there’s no risk, however there is always risk. If you’re placing a high bet, stick to an absolute maximum of 20% of your betting inventory.
Always leave enough to bet another day.
If you’re feeling angry or frustrated, your judgement get’s very cloudy. You’ll make a stupid bet and lose. If you just lost a big bet or are on a losing streak, instead of trying to force a bet, you should take a step back, calm down and just take a break, come back refreshed with a fresh mindset.
Betting blind is a purely relying on luck, if the underdog odds are 30%, that definitely doesn’t mean the team has a 30% chance of winning. It just means 30% of the betting community chose that team. A late roster change could mean there’s zero chance for the team to win. Check in with our predictions to help give you some more background on the game.
Use the lounge odds tracker to predict the final odds as the start of the match get’s closer. If the odds are increasing/decreasing for the team you intend to bet on the return may not outweigh the risk anymore. A huge significant switch of odds at the last moment may mean that something shady is going on, mostly in very low tier games, or a sudden announcement, E.g standin may have occurred.
Bookies will put up their odds based on their own expectations, as the bets start coming in they'll tweak the odds to ensure it's still profitable for them. That early stage is key to getting an edge on the bookies.
As soon as you feel like you have to bet again to recoup loses, you’ll feel compelled to make bigger bets with bigger risks. This often starts an endless cycle driving your losses further and further. Instead, after a big loss, take a day off from betting (or a week if was really big). .Keep to the proper bet sizing based on the risk of the match no matter what. You are not in a race to win it back, just take it easy.
Do not blindly follow betting site odds and think that they are correct to the true odds. If a betting site has ‘Team A’ as a heavy favorite, it does not always mean that it’s an easy win for ‘Team A’.
SK beat Na’Vi… Na’Vi beat E-Frag. That means SK can beat E-Frag now, right? No.
There are many factors which contribute to the team winning a match, these factors such as player performance, map selection, strategy and tactics which may not apply to other teams.
