I have written an article explaining methods of earning money from Dota 2 earlier. Now I have carried out a review of the most popular Dota 2 betting sites so that you don’t waste your time / money / items on stupid sites. Sites listed below are in order of recommendation.

Review Criteria for Dota 2 Betting Sites

I’ve carried out review of Dota 2 betting site while keeping following points in mind.

  1. Site Speed
  2. User Interface
  3. Reward for bets
  4. Other features on site
  5. Site Support
  6. Miscellaneous

1. Dota 2 Lounge Dota 2 Lounge - Best Dota 2 Betting Sites

Pioneer of Dota 2 betting sites, Dota 2 Lounge was created in 2013 by Borewik. This site provides Dota 2 items trade along with Dota 2 betting. Along with betting you can also watch live streams of ongoing / upcoming matches.

PROS:
  • One of the oldest Dota 2 betting sites, therefore almost no glitches / bugs.
  • Lots of gamers are using this site for betting, therefore reward ratio is great.
  • Site is extremely simple and no advanced shit is added in it, user interface is extremely simple to use and it just takes 5 minutes for first timer to use this site to its full potential.
  • It is optimized for mobile as well, therefore easy to use while on go.
  • Site’s support is provided via steam group and is quite better.
  • Provides multi-lingual user experience.

CONS:
  • Dota 2 Lounge is purely betting and trading site. It does not provide other useful stuff for Dota 2 gamers like blog, news and such other stuff.
  • Because of extremely high numbers of users, site gets bogs down. This is significant once there are some high stake tournaments are live.
  • You can only bet Dota 2 items on matches as Dota2Lounge is only about Dota 2, no option for CS:GO items betting or CS:GO matches. (That may be because they have a totally different site for CS:GO stuff)

2. VPGame VPGame - Best Dota 2 betting sites

VP Game is a Chinese site however, translated versions in English is also available. You encounter a very clean and sleek design once you open the site. Along with Dota 2, this site also provides betting and market options for CS:GO.

PROS:
  • It is a very comprehensive site which fulfills needs of almost all Dota 2 player by providing items trading, betting, bidding, giveaway and tournaments platform all in one place.
  • VP Game has its own dedicated app for android and iPhone providing a unique experience while using VPGame on the go.
  • You can also buy and sell items for real money which you can later withdraw to online payment accounts.
  • China has a very big Dota 2 fan base and VPGame is very popular among Chinese gamers. So bet reward is also very good.
  • Despite so feature rich, its site speed is remarkable.
  • You can also place CS GO Items on Dota 2 matches and Dota 2 items on CS:GO matches.
  • They provide you a detailed report about your betting history.

CONS:
  • VPGame supports only Chinese and English languages, thus making it difficult for those gamers who don’t understand both languages.
  • Site support is average and you get reply to your support ticket in almost 3-4 days average time.
  • Being feature rich site, its user interface is little bit complex, it may take some time for a new user to understand its features.

3. NXTGame

NXTGame is comparatively new site and other than eSports betting options, it also provides options for betting on sports events. How ever only issue is that you can only bet Dota 2 items.

PROS:
  • Provides options for betting on Online games like Dota 2, CS:GO and LoL along with sports activities like basketball, soccer, mixed martial arts etc.
  • Features an online gambling option with Dota 2. You submit Dota 2 items for credits, then you use these credits to spin a wheel to win prizes. Obviously its not that you win anything every time.
  • Site’s speed is also great and interface is really simple. You don’t have to dig deep to find anything you are looking for.
  • Provides linguistic support for 3 major languages; English, Chinese and Russian.
  • Site’s Support is above average

CONS:
    • You can bet only Dota 2 items on any type of sports / online games.
    • This site does not have traffic as compared to D2L or VPGame, therefore rewards for bets are small.
    • NXTGame often faces problems with their bot’s availability.

4. Dota 2 Top Dota2Top - Best Dota 2 betting sites

Another Chinese site, not popular like VPGame, but still lots of users use this site to bet lots of Dota 2 items. Dota2Top’s items trading system is very unique. Instead of asking for specific items, you list your item and then provide an estimate value of items that you want in return. Now those items can be anything. That is your luck then.

PROS:
  • Once you see its name it feels that this site is only about Dota 2, but it also provides options for betting on CS:GO along with sports activities like soccer and basketball etc.
  • Regardless of its small user base, rewards for bets are great.
  • User interface is really simple and easy to grasp.
  • Provides linguistic support for 3 major languages; English, Chinese and Russian.
  • Site’s Support only provided via support ticket after you are logged in.

CONS:
  • Site is not fast enough once you load it for the first time. After that, because of cookies, it becomes better.
  • You can only use Dota 2 items to bet.
  • This is a Chinese site and lots of text is hard coded in Chinese and simply selecting different language does not help a lot.
  • Dota2Top does not have worthwhile feature except trading (difficult mechanism) and betting.

5. Dota2BestYolo Dota2BestYolo - Best Dota 2 betting sites

Dota2BestYolo is quite a new site and I think it was created this year or may be in last months of 2015. Being relatively new site, it has to take care lots of bugs specifically those issues which are related to bots. I see lots of potential in this site but developer has to work hard to fix it that is why its last in my recommendation for Dota 2 betting sites.

PROS:
  • Dota2BestYolo provides option for Dota 2 and CS:GO items betting on any of the match.
  • It supports multilingual access to their site and all major languages can be set as main language.
  • User interface is minimal and very simple. You do not get distracted by lots of stupid and useless junk..
  • Sent them email and now waiting for the response.

CONS:
  • A total rip off of Dota2Lounge with some modifications and new features.
  • Site’s speed is terrible and sometime it takes ages to load properly.
  • Dota2BestYolo does not provide items trading, market or news stuff. Its purely betting site with no other feature.
  • Site’s support is terrible. Rather I think that they don’t even provides any support to its users because when I sent a test email to check response, this is what I got. “Your message to <email address> was automatically rejected: Quota exceeded (mailbox for user is full)“. So that means there are many unread support emails still lying around in their inbox and no one is taking any look at that.

So what is your personal experience about Dota 2 betting sites ? Must tell us about it in comments below.
