In this article, we are going to show you how to bet on CSGO matches with skins, whether it be through skin betting websites, or using Skinpay to convert your skins into real life cash.
Truth is, there are a lot of different bookmakers nowadays, and several more seem to pop up almost daily. Please make sure to only play on trusted websites to avoid losing your money.
So while betting with skins as a currency in itself is rather easy, finding the right place to do it and ensure a pleasant experience – not so much.
HOW TO Bet skins on CSGO matches
So let us start with the fundamentals.
As already mentioned, there are two ways of betting on CSGO matches using your skins. Either you can go on websites like CSGOfast or CSGOroll and just deposit your skins directly, or visit a bookmaker like Betspawn or Arcanebet that uses Skinpay.
Option 1 – Skinpay
Skinpay is basically a service that will let enable you to trade in your skins at their partnered bookmakers and bet on CSGO matches with the converted value of your skin. In other words, it is not really skin betting, merely a way of converting your skins directly instead of having to sell them somewhere else first.
So for example, if you deposit $50 worth of skins, you get $50 deposited into your wallet and can start using that to bet immediately. Pretty simple.
STEP 1: Getting started
Here are some prerequisites that you will need in order to get started:
- A Steam account that is at least level 1
- The Steam mobile app to accept the trade
- A public inventory (click here if you need help with this step)
