Heroes of the Storm (HotS) is a relatively new MOBA game developed by Blizzard. The game was released June 2nd, 2015. HotS is free to play (F2P) and available to download from Blizzard’s Battle.net client. In-game purchases can be made to buy heroes and skins.
When playing HotS you’ll be able to choose heroes from classic Blizzard productions such as Starcraft, Diablo, and Warcraft. Since it’s a new game there are not a lot of sportsbooks that offers HotS betting yet. Betway, bet365 and Betsson are some of the more established sportsbooks that have odds available for Heroes of the Storm when bigger tournaments are being played.

HotS odds and promotional offers
Real money wagering on Heroes of the Storm and other eSports works exactly the same way as on traditional sports. It can, however, be a bit tricky if you’re a beginner. Odds are the chances or likelihood of something happening or being the case. Meaning high odds would be less likely to happen but the reward would be greater.
Example – bet365
As can be seen in the picture above, a €100 bet on Team Liquid with 1/3 odds would potentially give €133 in winnings.
Promotional Heroes of the Storm offers
Most of the more established sportsbooks offer new customers some sort of welcome bonus. A welcome bonus is usually a deposit bonus, meaning, a deposit of, let’s say €50, will be matched by the sportsbooks if their offer is 100%, and you’ll end up having €100 to bet for.
Be aware that a welcome bonus offer may vary depending on which sportsbook you choose. Get more details by reading our reviews and of course, go through the terms thoroughly directly on the sportsbooks websites. And remember, unique terms and conditions for each sportsbook are always included in welcome bonuses.
HotS bet types available
Sportsbooks primarily provide traditional betting on eSports, there are exceptions, though, where they also have live betting available.
Traditional betting on Heroes of the Storm includes standard odds and special odds. A bet on the winning team, or a tie, would be standard odds.
Special odds are the type of odds that stand out a bit. For example, a bet on the team getting the first kill or an exact score outcome.
How is HotS played?
Competitive Heroes of the Storm differs from other MOBAs in that you play more than one map. The primary goal of every map is still to destroy the enemy base but how you do it is different on every map. Each map has different objectives such as trying to control different points on the map for points toward a mighty buff or defeating bosses which in turn lets you control them and use them against the enemy.
On every map achieving the objective gives you some sort of powerful buff or monster that helps you push into the enemy base, what advantage you receive depends on the map. In most series you play a different map in every game so a Best of 5 series could feature 5 unique maps depending on the final score.
Heroes of the Storm also has no gold and there is no item shop and the XP is shared globally with your team. When your hero levels up you can pick different abilities for them all the way to level 20. Each hero can be customized with unique abilities so you can change their playstyle. There are currently 49 heroes in the game.
The heroes that are available can be divided into following classes ”Assassin”, ”Warrior”, ”Support” and ”Specialist.”
Falstad, Gall, Greymane, Illidan, Jaina, Kael’thas, Kerrigan, Li’Ming, Lunara, Nova, Raynor, The Butcher, Thrall, Tychus, and Valla.
Anub’arak, Artanis, Arthas, Chen, Cho, Diablo, E.T.C, Johanna, Leoric, Mudarin, Rexxar, Sonya, Stitches and Tyrael.
Brightwing, Kharazim, Li Li, Lt. Morales, Malfurion, Rehgar, Tassadar, Tyrande, and Uther.
Abathur, Azmodan, Gazlowe, Murky, Nazeebo, Sgt. Hammer, Sylvanas, The Lost Vikings, Xul and Zagara.
