Apex Legends became the coolest game of 2019 and took the gaming world by storm. Within a week of its release, it had over 25 million downloads all over the world, which was phenomenal. This game is undeniably one of the best battle royale offerings from Respawn Entertainment, which was published by Electronic Arts. The game takes the free-to-play shooter game to a whole new level with its heart-stopping action sequences and exceptional characters, each possessing unique abilities.

Apex Legends betting is a relatively new entrant into the world of eSports betting. Currently, there are no tournaments that are available to make Apex Legends betting lucrative. However, the game has tremendous potentials for growth in the world of online gambling, so it will most like likely follow the usual eSports betting rules.
A typical eSports betting involves bettors who wager on a player or a team who has the potential to beat out the other players and emerge as the winner. eSports betting has steadily become one of the most common ways to bet. This medium of gambling is combined with convenience as well as the potential to win significant amounts as most tournaments carry millions of dollars in prize money.
Since Apex Legends was published on February 4th, 2019, the game itself is in its nascent stage. Although this has not deterred prominent eSport bookmakers and sponsors from prepping up the match for eSport competition, there are no credible organisers or online bookmaker that has started accepting bets for Apex Legends. It is because they are still gauging the activities of the fans and whether or not the game and its developers will maintain the same feverish pace for at least a couple of years.
The numbers of tournaments that have taken place are a testament to the rising popularity of the game. There are also a couple of tournaments which are coming up in November, and they are:
- Streamer Anonymous scheduled for November 2nd 2019, in New York, United States, where a total of 8 teams are expected to compete.
- Tournament 1, scheduled for November 16th and 17th 2019 in the Denver United States. A total of 32 teams are expected to compete.
When it comes to eSports betting, the excitement doubles when there is a possibility of earning real money involved. Of course, this cannot be said for Apex Legends betting with real money as there is no bookmaker that is currently accepting bets. However, if the activity of the online betting sites and credible teams are any indications, it won’t be long when winning real cash betting with Apex Legends will be a reality.
Some of the big names in online betting sites that have shown interest in eSports betting with Apex Legends are Arcanebet, Unikrn, and Betway, among others. These platforms host all the big players in eSports betting, including CSGO, Call of Duty, Dota 2, and FIFA among others.
Some of the heavyweight teams which have already announced their rosters for Apex Legends title include Team Liquid, TSM, and Gen. G. There is no reason why Apex Legends will become the next game-changer in the eSports betting world with real money within a couple of years.
Assuming that bookmakers start opening their lines for Apex Legends betting with real money, it might be safe to say that punters will have different market options to bet on including:
- Match winner
- Outright winner
- Map winner
- First kill
- Special bets
Judging by the immense popularity of Apex Legends, there is every reason to assume that when the eSports betting revs up the speed, the betting types will be similar to the one that is available with all the big games.
Typically, the betting types that are involved with major games are accumulator bets, money line bets, outright bets, special bets as well as In-play bets. Since the mechanics of the game and the fierce competitiveness makes Apex Legends a hit among players and viewers alike, there is no reason why organisers and online betting sites will make the betting types of Apex Legends different from those of other battle royale games.
It is difficult to say whether or not trading will be possible while betting with Apex Legends. It is because eSports betting with Apex Legends has not picked up speed.
However, the game has an exciting line-up of futuristic and innovative weapons, including sniper rifles, assault rifles, submachine guns, light machine guns, and pistols, among others. All the weapons and other items are classified into four categories based on rarity. They are:
If the trading available in the battle royale games are any indication, then Apex Legends will have a huge crowd who will be trading these items, whether it is within the game or other third parties like the Steam Community.
Unlike other games that have pitfalls, Apex Legend developers have done an immaculate job of developing the game for stiff competition. The abilities of the Legends, as well as the mechanics of the movements and the unrivaled gunplay, make Apex Legends even more engrossing than older games like Fortnite.
Although Apex Legends have yet to storm into the world of eSports betting, it has all the ingredients to become the next biggest thing in eSports betting.
