An eSports player has hit the jackpot after winning a world record 500/1 wager with Betway placing a bet on the latest ELEAGUE tournament.

 

[dropcap]B[/dropcap]etway has paid out a record breaking 500/1 wager to a player who bet on this season’s ELEAGUE rank outsiders, OpTic Gaming.

The eSports punter claimed £10,000 after winning the world record stake when the ELEAGUE team he betted on to be outright winners was victorious.

Through all the years of having a dedicated eSports trading team we thought we had seen it all, but this 500/1 shot has left us with egg on our faces

 

OpTic Gaming defied expectations when qualifying for the 16 team tournament and went from 500/1 outsiders to reaching the final and beating the Danish team, Astralis.

Betway’s Alan Alger said: “Through all the years of having a dedicated eSports trading team we thought we had seen it all, but this 500/1 shot has left us with egg on our faces.

“We’re only too happy to pay out on what is our largest priced single eSports winner in our history, although I can confidently say we won’t be underestimating OpTic Gaming at the next CS:GO event.”
