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.
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 offering a great esports fantasy and betting product.
As you can imagine, PickleBet doesn’t have a wide range of markets for the pure fact that they focus solely on esports. When comparing them to some of the bigger bookmakers in the country who offer sports and racing, their offerings are quite limited. However, if you stack PickleBet’s range up against the esports range of a BetEasy or Sportsbet, they usually compete quite well in terms of variety of markets.
At PickleBet you can find markets on over eight different esports titles, ranging from the most popular in CS:GO and DOTA to more niche esports like Rainbow Six and FIFA.
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.
To login or view your account details, head to the ‘My Account’ section in the top right hand corner of the page. From here, you’ll also be able to make deposits and withdrawals as well as check your activity statement and notifications.
Due to it’s infancy as a company, PickleBet do not currently offer a mobile app. However, the browser version of the website is very easy to use, and if punters wanted to bet on their phone with PickleBet, they will have no troubles using it on a regular basis.
We expect a PickleBet mobile app to be coming soon.
One of the best aspects about PickleBet is the regular promotions that are waiting for you in your inbox when you sign up for an account. As a brand new company, PickleBet are no doubt trying to win potential new users over with offers, much more so than the bigger bookmakers who have established user-bases would be.
Current PickleBet promotions can also be viewed on the main banner on their homepage. These are universal promotions available to everyone, but be sure to regularly check your email inbox for personalised promotions as well.
Remember to always refer to the terms and conditions of any promo you are hoping to claim at PickleBet.
One of the most important aspects of customer service that has become standard in all of the top online gambling sites in Australia is a live chat feature and PickleBet offer that along with a range of different tutorials on how to bet, FAQ and user guides that make the user experience a breezy one.
Unfortunately, due to Australian legislation, the offering of any incentive to sign up at a sports betting agency is illegal. However, once you sign up to PickleBet, they regularly send out emails with personalised promotions.
PickleBet promo codes are only available to users who sign up to the platform and enter their email address. From there, any promo codes that PickleBet wish to offer will be sent to your email address.
