Fortnite Gameplay

Fortnite is a simple game to understand for bettors. Similar to games like Playerunknown's Battlegrounds and H1Z1: Battle Royale, 100 players are dropped onto a large open-world island map. There is no linear sequencing or set of objectives for the player to follow - the only objective is to survive.

To keep the game interesting and balanced, a circular ‘storm’ slowly engulfs the map as the game progresses, forcing players to move closer and closer to each other resulting in some spectacular firefights. Players do not start with a set of weapons - they must loot randomised items across the map as the game goes on.

Unlike other battle royale titles, players in Fortnite can also build to protect themselves where necessary. The last player (or team) alive wins - not dissimilar to some game modes offered in other eSports titles such as CS:GO.

Fortnite Tips

The best Fortnite betting tips will come from eSports betting writers and gamers themselves. To put yourself ahead of the curve (and potentially the bookies) make sure to watch a variety of Fortnite streamers on Twitch. Top Fortnite players will often use Twitch as a source of revenue and this makes it is easy to watch them play at all times of the day.

Keep an eye on players’ consistent performances - ask yourself how often do they come in the Top 20? T10? T5? Win? How many kills do they get per game? How many times do they ‘go down’? The answer to all of these questions can help inform your Fortnite betting strategy for big tournaments.

Fortnite Betting Markets

Fortnite is yet to become a fully-fledged eSport title, so options to bet on the game at present are limited. The first Fortnite betting odds were listed for a Pro-AM tournament during e3 2018. Bookies provided an outright win market during this competition with professional streamer Ninja and EDM artist Marshmello eventually becoming victorious among a pool of many other high profile celebrities and gamers, having originally been 10/1 to do so.

Fortnite Bonuses and Odds

Bonuses provided by Fortnite betting websites are yet to be established, due to how young the game and its betting markets are. However, some bookmakers will provide first time bettors with a deposit bonus that will also apply to Fortnite betting markets.

The bonuses depend on the deposit that the bettor chooses. Generally bonuses will range in the 25% to 100% of the initial amount deposited. Another type of Fortnite bonus for bettors to take advantage of is the ‘no deposit’ bonus. In this instance, the player is provided with a small amount so that they can begin betting instantly. Aside from these no deposit bonuses, some online betting sites will offer new customers free bets up a certain value, usually credited once a qualifying bet has been placed.
