Possible yes, but very very difficult: you have to consistently calculate game probabilities better than the gaming houses. And then you have to do it in the long term, surviving ups and downs to get a 5 - 10% annual return (so if you go in with 1000€, 1 year later expect 1100€ max).
It isn't good for your mental health
No.. Should stay as a hobby. Gambling is unpredictable and it mostly about luck. Just don't.
yes, it's possible but much tougher than 2 years ago as the bookies have improved.
i recommend following some twitter accounts who have proven positive % ROI, such as @Fragguh and @Cappeh. i've seen them tweet about their betting discord community, where they post their bets, for a time now, i haven't been into it as i'm not betting anymore but look it up.
Considering 1% of all poker players is successful I would say no since poker is some what predictable compared to betting esports/sports.
I've been doing it since early 2014 and paid off my tuition and bought a car, it's pretty hard to make a living off of it tho. I only bet on CS.
Ye you can , but u need to have big enough bankroll to actually make enough to live from.
Also you can't start ragebetting when u lose a lot, hold tight on your bankroll.
And last but not least you need to actually know about the teams :D
Mathematically the more times you bet, the more the bigger the chance is that you will lose. Your best bet is to make one huge AF bet and never touch betting again. try googling "Regression to the mean" and you will see.
you wont be able too live from it as you'd have way too much pressure. bad streak fucks you up and it will happen.
if you keep working you'll have your safe income and can build a decent secondary income from betting if your good offcourse, and buy stuff from it or just put into your life savings who knows.
obviously its possible but its very hard
It’s possible, but you need to be an analyst basically and even then it’s still risky
There are loads of guys here on hltv who are earning 100k+ a month from betting, but they wont talk to you since you are a nonamer, pros are betting aswell btw, family of players are betting aswell( on fixing games ofc) since 80% of the eastern european games are fixed , so you should just bet on majors and minors if you want serious games . ive been betting on csgo games for over 4 years, and i can say that i had infos about whos gonna win sometimes and not, east european games and asian games ,they are easy to pay.
i have made $10k in a day multiple times, the secret to long term success is having monk level discipline.
Betting on matches for long term profit is by far worst method. Lets say u bet on navi vs big or w/e team and s1mple and electronic is having a bad day and miss all their shot etc, mistakes player do that can cost them rounds/the game, upsets in bo1 matches lets say astralis vs vega, astralis should 80% win on the paper but in bo1 anything can happen. The risk to reward ratio aint worth it imo, especially since matchfixing is going on often in lower tier teams.
Roulette and shit is better since its 50/50 pretty much and poker etc if you're good at it.
You may get lucky but if you bet a lot you will get rekt
There is a VERY slim chance you will make it. I made some good money live betting Astralis this year, definitely the easiest as they do comebacks after comebacks. But in order to do it in a long term, first you need to have discipline, good bankroll management, and definitely a sharp intuition. Idk if anyone has a model calculating edge for csgo win probabilty compare to the bookie odds so this is definitely an opportunity since e-sports in general have soft lines. I'd be better of betting football/mlb since there are plenty of matches to pick and bookies are bound to make mistakes in pricing.
I've been betting Since 2014, and in the first 2 years i wasn't succesful, than I got into it,
after it I was better, and in 2016-2017 i lost always because of the stupid strategy I was using (going allin, ragebetting a lot, chasing losses etc.)
You can be profitable, if you Use proper Bankroll Management, and Avoiding tilting and a lot of stuff.
I started to make some math about oddses, and Probability
I also started to take notes from this site bettingexpert.com/academy/basics-for-suc..
Do you think you can be profitable in a long term?
Also anyone wanna talk about matches, and betting to help each other hit me up.
TL;DR: I want to live from betting, do you think its possible?
So here's my personal opinion on this, even if you become a profitable bettor you shouldn't plant to make this your living till it is 2 or 3x your current income and has been this way for at least a year. Downswings will happen they can be very very painful and can be mentally hard to work through. Also in other areas of finance like the stock market many people had great success for a few years and decided to do it full time as it was out pacing their current income. They went on to make lots of mistakes because they began to over analyze events or games and would end up making poor decisions. Even if you are highly profitable unless you hate your job i'd suggest continuing to work a long with betting. Think of the betting or the job which ever as just supplemental income. Quitting your job to bet full time can lead to a host of issues. Also if you're very profitable and not working in a field you enjoy you can simply quit your job and move to a field in which you do enjoy the work.
1: Over analyzing of matches or games
2: Feeling you need to find bets or spending to much time searching for bets and making low quality bets
3: Have a terrible down swing and lose most if not all of bank roll and not have a job either.
You just need to be able to say no to matches that you are only slightly sure about (I have been betting for like 4 years and I still haven't learnt self control, so I only do small bets for fun because I know even if I get 10000% increase or whatever (10 to 250) I will still lose it because fuck this brain, can't even withdraw my starting budget rofl, also don't let your braon make up reasons why a team that you like will win, just skip those matches
I need help .... im looking for bet company, where is possible make bet for every rounds in match, no just 1 and 16 pistols rounds. Thanks
i just bet and stop when i reach my daily aim or loss. i either get 1k$ or lose 200$ which is enough for me for daily living
less than 1% in the world living from that...i know two people who do that....its very very hard , but possible...
I used to bet $1k-2k per match for at least $1k profit each match
Here's some tips:
I don't bet online match since you never know if they are trying to win or not
Bet on BIG LAN tournament , don't bet on CIS / Chinese matches
Aim for hit rate (I don't bet on underdog that much unless I think they will most likely to win)
You don't lose money if you have good predictions
Lastly , don't bet on SPORTS.
Csgo is full of throwers. You would have gotten rekt before you made you first paycheck and starve to death.
Its possible, but only for a short term. It wouldnt work for long term.
I think you can, but it won’t be something for long term, plus it certainly can be very stressful at times
The problem is with limits so low you need a fantastical ROI over the long term, anything over 10% on an actually significant sample is savant territory. Nobody is making 100k a month or anything remotely close.
