In an industry first, Veloce Esports has announced a partnership with leading racing game developer Codemasters to launch a revolutionary, multi-title, global esports racing league – the VERSUS ULTRA Series – with Lando Norris’ Quadrant team revealing itself as the first official entry.

Veloce is well-versed in original and innovative projects in the burgeoning esports sphere, sparked by the success of its immensely popular #NotTheGP series during the lockdowns of 2020. The ever-expanding Veloce Esports ecosystem yields substantial monthly viewership figures in excess of 230 million across its various channels.

Codemasters is a world-leading video games developer specialising in the racing genre. Its portfolio includes DiRT, Project CARS, GRID, and the official series of F1® video games.

Some of the best-known global esports teams will be taking part, comprising world famous streamers, pro gamers, and more, with squads competing for the inaugural VERSUS ULTRA Cup.

The first team to throw its hat into the ring is Quadrant, F1 star Lando Norris’ ever-popular esports squad.

With the likes of F1 YouTube star Aarav Amin (Aarava), leading virtual racer Steve Alvarez Brown (Super GT), Maria Bish (RiaBish) and Niran Yesufu (FNG) on the books, Quadrant will undoubtedly be running at the sharp end during the inaugural season.

More information on the event format, team announcements and the VERSUS ULTRA CUP will be revealed in due course, with racing set to get underway in 2022.

Rupert Svendsen-Cook, CEO, Veloce Esports, commented: 

“We’re delighted and feel very privileged to be partnering with such an established player in the industry as Codemasters, to launch what we know will be the best racing esports league in the world. We have worked closely with Codemasters for some time, as a large part of our media network features their titles, so it made a huge amount of sense to work together on this project.

“For us, the key focus is on entertainment for the gaming community and offering an original and engaging format that breaks the mould of the traditional racing esports leagues currently available. We’re incredibly excited to share further details regarding who and what is to come as we prepare to launch in 2022.”

Toby Evan-Jones, Head of Business Development, commented: 

“The VERSUS Ultra Series is an exciting new format which creates both action-packed content and the opportunity for our players to compete with their heroes from the real and virtual racing worlds. Codemasters’ expertise in delivering world-leading racing titles makes us the perfect partner for Veloce. We hope players of all levels will come together to create a fun competition which redefines the competitive gaming landscape with an innovative and inclusive format.”

How To Set Up And Manage Your eSports Betting Budget?

Published

Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

In spite of this, It’s common knowledge that betting on eSports can be a lucrative pastime activity, but seasoned gamblers would also remind you that maintaining a winning streak is the best way to maximize your earnings. When it comes to this, the truth is that you won’t always come out on top; in fact, there will be occasions when you come out on the losing end.

However, the technique you choose to manage your betting money will be the most important factor in determining your overall level of success. This strategy is referred to as “bankroll management” in responsible gambling, and it is simple to use as long as you maintain your self-control.

Bankroll Management

Even if “bankroll” is slang for your money when gaming. In this context, it’s used for wagering on various eSports events. It’s distinct from things like prizes or bonuses. Instead, your gambling budget should serve as a gentle nudge toward responsible play.

If you have a bankroll, you can set betting limits and avoid losing the money you can’t afford to lose. This is where good money management comes in, and it’s an absolute must for every bettor, new or old.

Money management is crucial for preventing addiction and acting rashly, which is why it’s so important. Your ability to make informed wagers will improve as a consequence. You place wagers on teams and people not just because you think they will win, but also because you are confident that you are making the correct prediction. And how exactly will you determine that? Here are eight tried-and-true methods for making money and having fun while betting on eSports in the long run.

Finding A Reputable Betting Site

Finding a trusted betting site is the first step in making sure you keep your bankroll safe. Hitting up the first site that pops up is a sure way of losing your entire bankroll. Thankfully today fairbettingsites.co.uk’s list of the best betting sites in 2022 has some of the most reputable bookies compared all in one place accompanied by incentives they offer.

This allows punters and newcomers to easily find and compare the best bookies available to them. Making sure you play at a reputable site is a great way at ensuring your bankroll is safe.

Build A Mindset

Depending on how you feel during EveBetting, you could choose a different set of choices. Gaining victory requires a determined yet practical strategy. Never lose sight of the fact that this is, first and foremost, a pastime. Always have a level head and be ready to take a loss when it comes to entertainment.

Set Up A Budget

If there’s one thing that gambling and investing have in common, it’s the age-old adage that you should never risk losing money that you can’t afford to throw away. It shields you from potential dangers and turbulence. Due to this, you should already decide how much money you are willing to wager on eSports before registering for an account with an online sportsbook or login into your account there. You shouldn’t allow this to damage your finances or any of your other personal commitments that are essential.

Keep Track Of Your Progress

Although betting on eSports is typically done in one’s spare time, it is important to keep a record of past wagers when one engages in the activity frequently. Analyzing the differences between your deposits, the amount of money you have wagered, and the amount of money you have withdrawn can tell you if you are making money, losing money, or falling somewhere in between. Therefore, this is where you use techniques to assist you to improve the amount of money you gain from betting on eSports.

Create & Follow A Strategy

Consistency is a strategy for success, and in the case of managing one’s finances when betting on eSports, that formula includes adhering to a certain approach. This means that you will always have a clear vision and path to follow while making betting judgments, which will help you maintain objectivity.

These are principles that relate to how little and in what way you employ your bets, and they are sometimes referred to as staking plans. It’s possible that there will be good or negative progressions overall. The first strategy involves gradually raising your wagers after each win and reducing them to their lowest possible level after each loss. On the other hand, the second strategy requires you to raise your wagers after each defeat so that you can break even and make a modest profit when you finally emerge victorious.

Do Not Chase Losses

You might use an approach like the negative progression, but you need to know when to call it quits. If you’ve been on a losing run, it’s time to rethink your betting strategies, whether that means switching up your favored eSports market or the sort of wager you place. You should not chase after your losses as if it were a race. This will only result in your finances being depleted before you even realize it, and to make matters worse, it could also put you in the red financially.

Conclusion

The eSports betting industry is set to grow with firms still investing in the future of GameFi making it look bright. With the games industry still in its infancy, it’s showcasing a lot of promise for the future of the eSports betting scene thanks to the nature of GameFI and crypto.
