Pixel.bet is a esports-only betting site that largely focusses on the European market.
Having been purchased by rapidly expanding gambling group Leo Vegas in September of 2018, Pixel.bet is gaining a loyal following in one of the most exciting growth areas in the wagering industry.
This betting site will have all of the most popular markets from the biggest esports games in the world, while you will also receive a €2 freebet for simply creating an account and verifying it.
What esports can I bet on?
Basically if there is an old or new esport on the scene Pixel.bet will have wagering on it. This means you will find your popular titles like League of Legends, CS:GO, Dota 2, Overwatch and many more will have wagering on them available.
Basically if there is competition play going down, whether it be in Asia, North America, Europe or elsewhere there is most likely going to be markets available.
We expect as more video game titles develop into esports pursuits more markets will become available.
Bonus offers & promotions
Like most online betting companies, Pixel.bet will run ongoing and one-off promotions, including a nice sign up offer and €2 free just for opening an account.
When you open a new account at Pixel.bet you will be given €2 to try your account out. This means you can place a bet before you even deposit money.
There is a 10x wagering requirement before you can make withdrawals, which simply means, that for instance you have to place €10 worth of bets before you can withdraw money.
First deposit bonus: 100% up to 50 Euros
When you make your first deposit, Pixelbet will match it 100% up to the value of €50, which means you can deposit €50 euro and have a total of €100 (€50 cash + 50 bonus) euro to bet with.
The terms and conditions on this bonus offer including a 10x wagering requirement on odds higher than $1.70, while you must also use any bonus within a week of depositing.
Pixel.bet has a fully responsive mobile website which has a very similar feel and colour scheme to the desktop version, which means you can place bets via your handheld devices.
The mobile version boasts an easy navigation system with each esport betting option easy to navigate to. The betting options are all very much the same on mobile.
Pixel is yet to announce any apps for any specific markets.
Pixel.bet deposit options
This is one area the sportsbook falls down with only three deposit methods available for players, which pales in comparison to some other companies which can offer 20+ ways to fund your account. The company does, however, use Cardpay to transact Visa and other bank cards deposits, which is a highly respected banking company. As of September 2018 the following deposit options are available:
Pixel.Bet online casino
Pixel.bet does not currently have any online casino games available, however this could change when LeoVegas relaunches the brand.
Does Pixelbet have sports betting?
Unfortunately Pixel.Bet does not have sports betting available as of September 2018, however with LeoVegas taking the reins this could change with the company boasting its own platform.
Verdict: Is Pixel.bet really the next generation in esports betting?
While Pixel.bet is a very serviceable online betting site for esports fans, there is nothing particularly revolutionary about it.
The fact that it supports multiple languages is a huge plus, particularly for punters in Russia, where the options to wager on esports can be limited.
We expect that the website will continue to improve given the ownership change and the fact LeoVegas is known to be an innovator in whatever they pursue.
