BlinkPool is a platform on which users can bet on esports. The company's stated goal is to provide a fun and easy-to-use platform that rewards gaming knowledge.
The company uses computer-vision technology to create live prediction markets for esports.Users can predict the outcome of matches and bet on their favorite teams. They can also set their own odds with other players betting without the inclusion of a bookmaker. Users can track their performance by accessing their statistics. The statistics show both personal performance and compares the individual user with other users. There is also the ability for users to discuss the changes to the games as they develop and then make bets based off of the current game and not historical data that may not represent the game that's being played at the current time.
Popular games that users often bet on are Fortnite, DOTA 2, and CS:GO. The platform adheres to the United Kingdom's betting regulations and requires no deposit fees. Users must be 18 years of age or older to access the platform. They can access their gains at any time and make bets in real time.
Esports betting can succeed but bookies still face an uphill struggle.
