Fanobet will give you more live bet games at possibly better odds and just all around will have better customer support around eSports users. Now got to stress that Fanobet does NOT offer skin betting anymore, their bots began getting shut down so if you had skins on Fanobet, they have been transferred to Bitcoin automatically which is a really nice thing of them to do, especially since they gave you 65%. That being said, it is now a real money betting site or/And Bitcoin, not too shabby at all.
First Step. Register They give you the option to sign in with Steam however I wouldn’t recommend that, easier yes, but then you have to enter in information later on such as name, address etc, so it is just delaying the inevitable. So sign up, enter your name and what not, pretty simple registration process really.
Second Step. Deposit. Once you have signed up, you need to deposit essentially so click ‘’Deposit’’ and you will be greeted with this screen.
I prefer real money and will not be covering Bitcoin, however if you are into Bitcoin We’ve also created a bitcoin article here. So in my scenario, I click the real money option, unfortunately they do not accept PayPal, but they do have Skrill which is very similar and they also have NETELLER so not too shabby at all, so basically you will be greeted by this screen.
Click your preferred way of depositing, enter the required info and you are good to go.
Step 3. Bet. Once you have money and you wish to bet, on the left you can see all the possible sports you can bet on, as seen here.
I like how the Esports options are first, and that is what I mean by Fanobet originating from Esports. So basically, I personally click CSGO and you can already see how much better this is sorted compared to other sites and what not, just a lot cleaner.
You can also click the red number and it will give you more betting options, like precise score, a lot cleaner than Bet365 for example.
So lets say I want to bet Selfless to win the series 2:0, I click the red number, pick the bet option for Selfless to win 2:0 and you will see that on the bottom right, a new menu comes up where you can see your reward based on your bet amount as can be seen here
Step 4. Bets in Progress.
If you’re watching the match and the game isn’t going the way you expected, Fanobet has a cashout option on some matches (more than Bet365 for sure) so you can get some of your stake back.
There are also live betting options. So you can add new bets once the game has started.
Step 5. Withdrawing… tbc
Since the crackdown on skin betting, Fanobet have had to make some drastic changes to their system, their withdrawal system is due to be finalised any day. We’ll update this article when we have more information.
Each site will be different to some extent, but Fanobet is similar enough to most that this guide applies to many others, for a full list of esports betting sites, see our list here.

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.
