Street Fighter V betting – Try virtual betting on Street Fighter V

Everybody knows that Street Fighter is one of the biggest and best video gaming franchises. But did you know that you can also try Street Fighter V betting? We have seen lots of great esports bettings sites that allow you to place both normal and virtual bets on this classic fighting game, and we are going to show you what Street Fighter V betting is all about. Most people simply like to play Street Fighter V for some casual entertainment. But growing numbers of gaming fans are starting to realise that this game can also be bet on to make some decent winnings. [related_operator] Although Street Fighter V has some way to go before it rivals bigger esports like CS:GO and LoL (read also CS:GO betting and LoL betting pages), we think that the fighting game has what it takes to become one of the most popular competitive gaming titles around. So keep reading to see how you can make a good start on Street Fighter V betting. What is standard Street Fighter V betting? The Street Fighter franchise has been around since 1987. Capcom have released many updates to this game over the past few decades, but ever since Street Fighter V was unveiled in 2016, this PC and PlayStation 4 title has become a massive hit in the competitive gaming world. Much of this is down to the gameplay that offers no end of high-octane fighting action, but the fact that Street Fighter V offers cross-platform gameplay has also helped to make it ideally suited for competitive gaming. As a result, we have seen many fighting games tournaments like the EVO Championship Series putting Street Fighter V at the heart of their contests. Esports tournaments like this invariably attract thousands of fans, both in the arenas and via live streaming platforms. Where you get lots of viewers, then you know that there will be lots of esports betting sites who will feature odds for the games. Because of this, we have seen many highly rated betting sites including Street Fighter V betting options over the past couple of years. Street Fighter V is ideally suited to esports betting as it is incredibly similar to betting on a traditional sport like boxing or MMA fighting. There are no complicated rules to learn, and it’s often just a case of researching the past form of the pro gamers, hunting down the best esports odds, and then seeing if luck is on your side. Why you should try virtual betting on Street Fighter V? While standard Street Fighter V betting is great fun, we would also recommend that you try virtual betting on Street Fighter V. Putting virtual bets on Street Fighter V works in a similar way to the virtual sports betting that is fairly common at online bookmakers. This means that you are given a simulation of a Street Fighter V match, and you get to bet on the fighting action as normal. We have seen some innovative esports betting sites that now allow you to enjoy virtual betting on Street Fighter V. These often use footage taken from real-life Street Fighter V stars like Justin ‘Jwong’ Wong, and then they use an random number generator to produce a near limitless amount of unbiased and fair match results. Whilst the concept of virtual betting on Street Fighter V might sound odd, it’s actually hard to tell it apart from the real-life event. This is because all of the action is taken from pre-existing matches, but it is edited together to produce a good impression of an original Street Fighter V match. Plus the fact that the gameplay is based on a random number generator means that you know that you will be getting some very unpredictable results. One of the best things about taking virtual bets on Street Fighter V is the fact that there’s no end to the amount of matches and no delays between each round. This means that virtual Street Fighter V betting can be a great way to get some practice in before you lay down your bets on the real thing. Which esports betting sites feature Street Fighter virtual bets and standard bets? Although Street Fighter V has managed to break into the world of competitive gaming, it is still some way off becoming anywhere as popular as heavyweights like Counter Strike Global Offensive, League of Legends and Dota 2 (read also our Dota 2 betting page and guide) However, if you go to just about any of the esports betting sites featured on our shortlist, then there will be a good chance  that they will serve up some Street Fighter V bets the next time that a big tournament like the EVO Championship Series rolls around. Of course, any site with virtual Street Fighter V betting will include odds every day of the year. Be sure to check out the Unikrn esports betting site who have 1,000 brand new virtual rounds featuring legends like JWong for you to enjoy. What can we expect from Street Fighter V betting in the future? Street Fighter V betting is set for a big future as it is starting to be featured in many more top esports tournaments. As well as awesome fighting games contests like the EVO Championship Series, Street Fighter V is set to become one of the featured games at the Intel World Open in 2020. This epic gaming contest will take place just before the start of the Tokyo Olympics and it could take esports to the next level. Interestingly, Street Fighter V was selected as one of the esports for the Intel World Open due to the fact that it would be simple for non-gaming fans to understand. This shows that Street Fighter V easily has the potential to become the next big star of the esports betting scene. Once the game gets featured at more esports tournaments, then there will certainly be a greater number of betting sites who feature odds for the fighting game. So while Street Fighter V may have been slow to adapt to the world of esports, it seems as though the battle has just begun. Our Top Operators for your bets [operators_comparison]

The World of Gaming online

Take a closer look at online gaming with our guide to this global phenomenon

Gaming online has seen a massive increase in popularity over the last few years, largely down to the way that mobile phone technology has developed. The numbers of people who play online games has risen massively. Almost everyone you know, including people over the age of 40 who are not necessarily the first people who spring to mind when you mention online computer games, will have played some form of online game in the last few weeks.
This has been partly due to social media, of course, which provides accessible platforms where almost anyone can find games to play that suit their lifestyle and interests. Sports games have become very popular, while we have all heard about games like Candy Crush.
Other types of online computer games remain very popular with younger people who like to play online games. Massive multi-player online games, often referred to as ‘MMOs’, remain hugely popular. World of Warcraft, for example, has become a cultural phenomenon that extends far beyond people’s computer screens or gaming mobile phones and has spawned books, a movie and other cultural products.
Here, we will take a closer look at the world of gaming online and at some of the gaming trends associated with it.

What is gaming online and how do you get started?

Even if you have no interest at all in the digital world or technology, the chances are pretty high that you will have heard of online gaming. It is, of course the act of playing games on the internet. There is tremendous variety in the number and types of games that you can play online nowadays, though. From retro arcade games, to intellectual puzzles, to role playing games, to traditional board games like Scrabble, you really can play almost anything you want online these days.
According to Juniper Research’s published white paper, the numbers of people who now play online games regularly is huge. The Newzoo 2018 Global Games Market Forecast stated that mobile gaming  and mobile games has been raising online casino revenue. The proportion rose from 18% in 2012 to 51% by 2018. The Newzoo report also predicted that this trend will continue, and it expected gaming online to contribute up to 59% by 2021.
There are also significant geographical trends in the world of online gaming. In November 2018, China made up almost 28% of global mobile gaming revenue, according to tech website iWeb. Japan is another country which makes a massive contribution to the wealth generated by gaming online. A big role in this is played by the way that gamers in Asia have moved away from their computer screens in recent years and started to use gaming mobile phones.

Online gaming and esports betting

It is possible now to pick up skins during online gaming which can be used to bet on esports. Skins are items that improve the cosmetic appearance of your character in some online games. They do not usually have any effect on the actual gaming performance of the character. They are a particular feature of games like Counter Strike: Global Offensive and Defense of the Ancients 2.
Gamers soon found another use for these skins as competitive esports grew in popularity over the last decade. As esports became more popular, increasing numbers of people wanted to bet on the matches and events for games like CS:GO, Dota2 and the International tournament.
While the betting companies were lagging behind demand, many gamers started betting using the skins that they had collected from their own gaming activities. This allowed gamers to use their skins as a kind of virtual currency for betting.
It is also possible to sell skins for real money, something that means successful esports skins bettors can actually make some genuine profit from their betting. It will be interesting to see how the concept of skin betting develops in the online computer games world in the years to come.


While we have not been able to cover the entire vast breadth of the topic of gaming online in this article, you now have a snapshot picture of this vast phenomenon. As 5G technology develops and becomes more widespread, we are sure to see more new and exciting developments in the world of online gaming. More powerful, faster gaming mobile phones are sure to arrive on the market too.
As the number of games to play increases new gaming trends are sure to emerge in the years to come, especially with the advent of 5G. Concepts such as virtual reality are sure to have an impact too, especially on the world of esports and esports betting. It is an interesting time to be alive for all fans of online gaming across the world!
