There are no officially licensed eSports sites in Brazil, but bettors enjoy gambling notwithstanding. Football and soccer are extremely popular in Brazil. The country is home to world-renowned legends like Ronaldinho, Garrincha, Pele, Ronaldo, and Roberto Carlos.
Cybersport has gained ardent admirers in Latin America, and Brazil is no exception. Esports betting in Brazil is now easier than ever thanks to local betting companies offering a wide range of eSports events. Foreign sites also abound, but players should proceed with caution as not all eSports websites are regulated.
With the obsession Brazilians have with football, they prefer to bet on FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer (PES). Another popular choice is martial arts, whereby many players wager on Brazilian Vale-Tudo and Jiu-Jitsu. Basketball follows closely, considering local leagues are some of the greatest in the world.
However, male basketball teams and events attract more bets. Volleyball is also a top choice, followed by horse race betting, which is legal. Brazilians also love to gamble on StarCraft, Dota2, and CS: GO. The last two are the most wagered on in the eSports scene.
