The mobile gaming market is positively booming! Just one quick look of the app store and you’ll see thousands (if not millions) of different games, just waiting to be played. Whether you like Adventure, Puzzle, Strategy or Simulation, you’re bound to find a game that takes your fancy. However, what if we told you that you could start winning prizes from your love of mobile gaming? Whether you’re the best at Clash of Clans or just want to bet on who you think is the best, mobile eSports is the latest and greatest way to get your gaming fix. Here are some of the mobile games you didn’t know had eSports tournaments.
Believe it or not, this child-like mobile game, based on the Dreamworks TV series, is one of the most popular for eSports gamers! And it’s one of the highest paying, with US player Brian Dragotto having earned an estimated $290,000 from tournaments. With prize funds that large, it’s no surprise that Turbo F.A.S.T (previously known as Turbo Racing League) is also the perfect game for eSport betting – where you bet on the outcome of the tournaments, in the hope of winning big yourself.
Created by Supercell, the same developers games such as Clash of Clans and Boom Beach, Clash Royale is the ultimate tower rush strategy game. Combining elements from tower defense games, collectible card games, and multiplayer battle games, Clash Royale is making waves in the mobile eSports arena. In fact, it even won the Esports Audience Award at the BAFTAs back in 2017 – beating big names such as League of Legends, Dota 2 and Overwatch.
If you haven’t tried your hand at Vainglory yet, then you’re seriously missing out. This incredible mobile game takes MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) games to the next level for both iOS and Android devices. The graphics are totally next level and the gameplay is very similar to plenty of other eSports games out there; making it easy for eSports gamers to transition from PC to mobile.
World of Tanks Blitz
This free-to-play PvP game was originally released on PC, but quickly made its way onto mobile devices. The concept of World of Tanks Blitz is pretty simple (drive a tank and use it to blast your competition), meaning that many people can quickly learn the ropes. However, to be the best you have to beat the best and there are some seriously strong contenders in the eSports world, all competing to be the best at World of Tanks Blitz.
So there you have it! The next time you get sucked into a mobile game, try and find out if there is an eSports tournament for it. You could be making some big bucks by getting good at your favourite games in no time.
