Find the best Halo betting sites
eBetFinder recommends the following bookmakers for betting on Halo:
As over-population on Earth started becoming a serious issue; it left us no choice but to extend our search for a new home. As we entered the 26th century, man had reached a high enough technological advancement allowing us to colonize the galaxy. We did so, only to find out that we weren’t alone and that some of our new homes were already inhabited by an alien population set to destroy the human race.
Halo is a series of FPS (First-person shooter) games with a military, science fictional setting. The story of the games revolve around an interstellar war that’s going on between humanity and a highly religious, alien spices called the Covenant. While playing, you take the role of Master Chief John-117, who is a super soldier accompanied with an artificial intelligent being called Cortana.
The first game in the series, Halo: Combat Evolved was released in 2001 and was back then an exclusive release to Xbox. As the game received fantastic reviews and were praised by many to be one of, if not the best first-person shooter ever released on a console, the series eventually expanded to other platforms as well, such as PC. To shed some numbers over the success that Halo has had, a total of 65 million copies of the games had been sold as of 2015. The most recent game in the series is Halo 5: Guardians which was released in October 2015.
Bet on Halo
When it comes to competitive gaming that generates money, Halo is one of those games that has been around for ages. Tournaments with a considerable prize pool date all the way back to 2003 and it all started with the first Halo game. A total of 38 tournaments were held for this game and the biggest one had a prize pool of $50,000.00, which is quite astonishing for the time being. With the second game, Halo eSports continued to grow as Halo 2 had a tournament with a prize pool of $280,000.00. Even though it then staggered for a while and barely changed with the release of Halo 3 and Halo 4, the Halo world championship in 2016 really switch things up a notch. This tournament was being played on Halo 5 and had an absolutely incredible prize pool of $2,500,000.00. To put things in perspective, this is more than what was offered in the 2014 and 2015 League of Legends World Championships, which is a game that 2014 had more than 27 million people playing it on a daily basis.
When it comes to betting money on Halo, unfortunately only a few betting sites like Vitalbet and ggBET who are seriously into eSports, are offering this. However, if Halo as an eSport will continue to grow the way that it has, it’s very likely that other betting sites will start to offer bets on Halo as well.
Markets available for betting on Halo
As betting on Halo unfortunately is a rare breed among eSport betting sites, the markets offered are also very limited. Usually you will only find the possibility to bet on match winner, but you might at times also find handicap, map winner and tournament/group winner offered.
Halo 5 game modes
Warzone is a 24 player mode with two teams of 12 players in each, battling it out on huge maps that are up to four times larger than ordinary maps. The mode features A.I controlled enemies and at the beginning of the game, the two teams start in their own home base that is being attacked by some of these A.I controlled enemies. Each home base contains a shielded core and the objective of the mode is to either destroy the enemy core, to get 1000 victory points or to get the most victory points before the time runs out. Victory points are earned by killing A.I controlled enemies and during the game boss enemies will spawn that are harder to kill, but rewards more victory points. To destroy the enemy core, three bases that are scattered on the map must first be captured. If one team manages to capture all three, the shield of the enemy core will then go down making it vulnerable to attacks.
Warzone Assault is an attack/defend version of Warzone with no A.I controlled enemies. In this mode one of the teams will be the attacking, while the other is defending. To win, the attacking team must destroy the enemy’s core, while the defending must prevent this from happening. The enemy core is shielded and two bases needs to be capture for the shield to go down.
Warzone Firefight is a cooperative mode where eight players fight against the A.I. To win, five different rounds that are five minutes long must be completed. The rounds could for instance be that certain enemies must be killed, a base must be defended, an item protected or a boss defeated. The fifth round is always a boss round where legendary and mythic bosses needs to be killed.
Slayer is a free for all type of game mode where the objective is to kill as many players as possible. The first player to reach 25 kills or the player who has the most kills when the time runs out is the winner.
Team Slayer is a team death match kind of mode and just like Slayer the goal is to get as many kills as possible. However in Team Slayer the players are divided into two teams. The team that gets first to 50 kills or has the most kills when the time runs out stand victorious.
Swat is a team death match kind of mode just like Team Slayer, but with a little twist that makes it heavily reliant on team work. Headshots and melee attacks instantly kill in this mode, while there is a 200% damage resistance for ranged attacks anywhere else on the body. Like in Team Slayer the first team to 50 kills or team with most kills before the time runs out win.
Assault is two team mode with a neutral ball located somewhere on the map. Each team fight it out to capture the ball and bring it to the enemy’s core. By successfully doing so a point is scored. The first team to reach three points win.
Strongholds is a two team domination kind of mode. There’s a total of 3 control points scattered around the map. By controlling two of these, one point is scored every four seconds and by controlling all three, two points are scored every four seconds. The first team that reaches 100 points is the team that stands victorious.
Breakout is a round-based, tactical mode that heavily relies on team work. The mode is played on small maps, in teams of two with four players in each. The first team to win five rounds stand victorious. During a round there is no respawn, which means that if you die you’ll have to wait until the next round. A round is won either by eliminating all of the enemy team or by bringing a neutral flag to the enemy’s base.
Capture the flag is a two team mode that is all about capturing the enemy’s flag and bringing it your own base. However, while doing so you must also make sure that enemy does not capture your own team’s flag as it is otherwise not possible to score. First team to 3 points win.
