Yes, you read that correctly. GamStop, not GameStop. GamStop offers a self-exclusion platform within the United Kingdom. Players concerned over gambling issues can create an account with GamStop and choose how long their ban lasts. During the set duration, players cannot place bets or gamble at UKGC casinos and betting sites. Obviously, there are many different non-GamStop gaming sites that offer all options for players from the United Kingdom. However, not all of them present viable choices for many players.
Once the self-exclusion ends, a player can remove the ban and continue playing games. If they choose, they can also resume betting on esports. A popular feature of GamStop is that users cannot remove self-exclusion or pause it. Only once it expires can it be removed.
Enjoying the Competition while on GamStop
As aforementioned, GamStop removes the ability to participate in betting-focused esports and virtual sports. However, for those who still want to enjoy esports, there are options.
To this day, FIFA remains a very popular esports game. The game allows players to bet on a virtual match that lasts much shorter than a real soccer match. There is no need to wait 90 minutes to get the outcome. And like its real-life counterpart, fans have the ability to place on a variety of reputable sites. So, while using GamStop to avoid malicious or exploitative gambling platforms, FIFA remains as a viable option.
Dota 2 has been one of the most popular games of this kind. Like many other games of the type, can be an extremely competitive game and it may be beneficial for many players who enjoy intense gaming. The same goes for the esports betting side which takes finesse and skill to master.
League of Legends
Released in 2009, League of Legends remains one of the most renowned, if not infamous games around. With more than 150 million players, many know the name and the acronym. Many also know the game to be near synonymous with esports and, of course, esports betting. And like the previously mentioned Dota 2, League of Legends offers competitive and intense matchups. So whether you’re looking for the game or to get in on the betting, League of Legends is a solid choice.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
A staple in PC gaming and esports, CS:GO stands just about in a league of its own. Offering detailed features and mechanics, CS:GO is a massively popular choice for those who simply want to see some military action and tactics in a competitive shooter. Of course, it has its own solid betting seen as well.
These are just a few extremely popular eSports games with complementary betting scenes. Of course, there is no real reason to stick to just one. Many players pick multiple games and enjoy watching the outcome, winning, and even playing the game themselves.
