Rocket League Betting

Rocket League is a soccer video game released for PC and PlayStation platforms in 2015. Using the slogan “soccer but with rocket-powered cars,” the game is played with two teams of eight people and uses toy cars (with rockets) to hit (and control) the ball. The rules are the same as football, so the team with the most goals wins the match. 

Since September 2020, the game has become free to play, meaning anyone can play and participate in local/global tournaments. According to Steam statistics, the game is played by more than 75 million people. Moreover, these are only Steam figures, and the game is also played on other platforms. It can be easily said that the actual number of players is over 100 million. Thanks to constantly released DLCs, the game continues to remain popular and gain new players. 

For this reason, the game has become very popular and turned into an esports in recent years. Rocket League betting is an option for different tournaments, and VulkanBet online bookie is the best address for this: we support Rocket League eSports betting for all three major leagues and offer the best odds. 

Betting on Rocket League Games and Events

Betting on Rocket League is possible for three major leagues and tournaments. These are: 

Rocket League Championship Series Betting

Also known as RLCS betting, this tournament has been organized by the developer of the game, Psyonix, since 2016. The reward for the tournament ranged from 50,000 USD to 300,000 USD during the first two years. The reason it is volatile is that the reward is funded by revenue from in-game cosmetic sales. However, since 2018, Twitch has become the official sponsor of the tournament, and the prize has increased to $1 million. The RCLS 2020 tournament has been postponed due to COVID-19 and will restart in 2021. NRG Esports, Renault Vitality and Cloud9 are the most recognized esports teams in this event.

Major League Gaming

Founded in 2002, MLG is primarily known for its Call of Duty and StarCraft II leagues. Since 2016, Rocket League has also become a part of MLG. These matches are streamed live on ESPN and are held in the United States. The tournament prize ranges from 75,000 USD to 100,000 USD.

Electronic Sports League

Rocket League is also a part of the ESL (Electronic Sports League) and is included in ESL ONE and ESL PLAY events. Rocket League matches are organized as part of these events in many different countries of the world throughout the year.

Rocket League Betting Types

Rocket League is a game played according to football rules, but it is possible to say that it is much more “liberal.” For example, there are no fouls: players can hit each other with their cars and do anything to control the ball. As long as a goal is scored, it does not matter how it is scored, and cars are capable of flying for a short time. In other words, Rocket League matches are pretty fun.

Therefore, the types of bets that can be played for this game are mostly on which team will win the match or the tournament. Most Rocket League betting sites only allow you to place win/lose bets. On VulkanBet, on the other hand, there’s much more variety. Some of the types of bets we offer for Rocket League are:

  • Moneyline Betting: This is a bet on who will win the match. It is also possible to bet on who will win the tournaments and leagues.
  • Map Betting: Rocket League tournaments consist of a series of matches played on different maps. In this bet, you try to predict who will win on a given map – it doesn’t matter who wins or loses the match.
  • Over/Under Betting: These are bets on whether the match outcome will be above or below a certain figure/point.
  • Season Betting: Rocket League tournaments consist of multiple seasons, and season winners qualify for the finals. In this type of bet, you try to predict who will win a particular season.
  • Handicap Betting: It has two types, Asian and European. Teams receive handicap points based on their positions (favourites and underdogs), and the bet is won if the result of the event matches these points. For example, a -1.00 handicap means that that team is the favourite and starts the game with a -1 goal. To win such a bet, the score must be at least “win by 2.”   

Understanding Rocket League Betting Odds

Rocket League betting odds are easy to understand, but you need to have the basic knowledge. In general, it is possible to say that Rocket League odds are shown in three ways. These are decimal, fractional and moneyline. The table below shows some examples. 

ODDS TYPE EXAMPLE
Decimal 2.00
Fractional 4/1
Moneyline +200 / -200

The table below shows how you should read these odds:

ODDS MEANING
2.00 You will win 2 units for every 1 unit you deposit.
4/1 The payout is 4 units for every 1 unit deposited.
+200 / -200 200 USD will be paid for a 100 USD bet (+200). To win 100 USD, you must deposit 200 USD (-200).

 

At Vulkan Bet, we show RLCS odds in decimal format as it is the most common one. Fractional odds are used in the United Kingdom, and moneyline odds are used in the United States of America. It is possible to say that the rest of the world uses decimal odds.

Tips for Rocket League Match Betting

VulkanBet is the best Rocket League betting site because we offer the best odds for all events. But it’s always better to use a strategy when betting. That’s why we share some tips that will be particularly useful for beginners below.

  1. Rocket League games are played as a team, and it is essential that the team works in harmony to win matches. Even if a team is full of famous and professional players, if they don’t know each other or can’t work in harmony, the chances of winning will be very low. For this reason, give priority to teams that have not changed players for a long time and have proven to work together.
  2. Play the game yourself. The most common mistake beginners make is to start betting without trying the game themselves. Yes, you don’t have to be a footballer to bet on football, but for Rocket League, the situation is different. First of all, this is a video game and open to everyone, so you can start playing in a few hours at most. You can also learn the “lingo” used by playing the game and get information about maps. In this way, it will be possible to reach more consistent results when analyzing the performances of the teams.
  3. As always, do your research and follow the news. Find out everything possible about the team you are betting on and its members. Even the fact that a gamer cannot access a piece of certain gaming equipment (for example, a high-DPI mouse) can seriously affect his performance. So, don’t just keep track of the performance of the teams but also examine the individual abilities of the players.
