The newest innovation in esports betting is here! Brisbane based company, Picklebet, launched in 2017 and offers punters an all new way to bet on esports with coverage of all of major esports tournaments. As of 2021, Picklebet has also introduced sports betting markets to provide a complete one-stop shop betting experience.
In this Picklebet review, we will breakdown the positives and negatives of the website and mobile app, as well as walk you through some of the key features and offerings of the Picklebet brand.
Founded by Damon Oudejans and Nick Heaney, with backing from parent company ‘Gamurs’, Picklebet is one of the only dedicated esports betting platforms for Australian esports fans. Originally opened as ‘Skrilla’, the company was founded in 2017 and focused on the rapidly growing market of esports.
Picklebet originally launched with the aim of incorporating a unique cryptocurrency within their platform, but has since abandoned the idea to focus more on building a next generation betting platform.
In 2021, Picklebet also introduced traditional sports betting markets for the more popular sporting codes, to offer customers with a complete betting product.
Picklebet’s initial focus is on esports and their goal is to become the leader in this space. In early 2021 Picklebet added sports betting markets but have yet to add racing or greyhounds. When comparing their sports markets to some of the bigger bookmakers in the country their offerings are not quite as broad but they definitely have most of what you will want. However, if you stack Picklebet’s range up against the esports range of a Ladbrokes or Sportsbet, they usually compete quite well in terms of variety of markets.
At Picklebet you can find markets on a wide range of esports titles, ranging from the most popular in CS:GO, LoL, Dota2 and FIFA to more niche esports like Rainbow Six, StarCraft2, Hearthstone and Rocket League.
As we mentioned, Picklebet now also offer a range of traditional sports betting markets covering popular sports such as NBA, MMA, NFL, Motorsports, Cricket, Ice Hockey, Boxing, Golf, AFL, Rugby, Baseball and Tennis. They offer all the markets you would expect from a bookmaker including head-to-head betting, line bets, handicaps, game props, outright betting and more.
When it comes to features on offer, Picklebet are quite limited, but this is mainly because they offer a no frills approach. To stay competitive, they rely heavily on being able to offer a wide range of esports markets, particularly for the niche titles, ones that the bigger bookmakers don’t typically cover.
Some of the Picklebet features can be found below.
Simplicty is the key with Picklebet. Unlike many other betting sites that feature a range of different sports, there aren’t thousands of links and tabs at Picklebet. Simply sort the betting markets by the ESport game you’re looking for ie. CS:GO, DOTA2, League of Legends in the top left hand corner and a list of betting markets will show up in chronological starting time order below.

Also the browser version of the website is optimised for mobile and is very easy to use.
