The mobile game for CoD is available for free download from the Google Apps store, but the regular version of the game still requires payment. Call of Duty is an established Esports game, with teams from numerous nations competing in events with millions of dollars in prize money.

The Call of Duty: Mobile World Championship debuted on the Esports scene in 2020, with a total prize pool of over $1 million thanks to a partnership between Activision Blizzard and Sony Mobile. All players with veteran or higher status were allowed to take part. With $2,000,000 in the bank for the 2021 Call of Duty: Mobile World Championship, the prize pool money increased in that year. But it was divided into two separate competitions: the East and West Finals.

  1. Arena of Valor / King of Glory 

In the Asian Esports scene, Arena of Valor is already a mainstay, accounting for the majority of the free-to-play Esports titles that are well-liked there. As a result, it is an essential part of the SEA Games, an Esports competition in which Southeast Asian teams compete against one another.

The top Arena of Valor players from China, Thailand, Vietnam, and Indonesia competed in the 2021 edition of the tournament for a piece of the $1,000,000 prize pool. Google Play offers a free download of AoV. (Take note that King of Glory is the name of a slightly different version of AoV played in Asia.)

  1. Wild Rift

Since its release in 2020, Wild Rift has become more and more well-liked. Riot Games, the same company that made League of Legends, created it. Due to it being a mobile game, there are a few minor changes, but otherwise the game is almost identical to LoL. Even though it is still a young game, Wild Rift has already participated in a few Esports competitions since its release. According to all indications, the game’s popularity will continue to rise, creating opportunities for everyone, including Esports bettors.

As of right now, the Horizon Cup 2021, which offered a $500,000 prize pool, was the biggest Wild Rift tournament. The winner of the contest was DKG. Visit the App Store on your chosen device to download free games (in this case, Wild Rift), then wait while they download.

  1. Valorant 

VALORANT is one of the most recent Esports games. The game, which was released in 2020, has already taken the gaming and Esports world by storm. Riot Games is attempting to make it the next major Esports game and a potential rival to Valve’s CS:GO, and they appear to be having some success.

The 2021 VALORANT Champions event featured 16 teams from around the world. These 16 teams competed for their share of $1,000,000, all with the goal of winning. However, there can only be one victor. Acend won the competition and took home $350,000 in prize money. To get started with VALORANT for free, go to playvalorant.com, sign up for a Riot account, and download the client.

Nova won $1,530,000 out of the $3,490,000 prize pool for the competition.

Even though it’s not one of the top 3, Fortnite still hosts a lot of Esports competitions annually. Prize pools for Tier 1 tournaments frequently top $100,000, which gives players an extra incentive to play consistently and aggressively.

With almost all bookmakers supporting League of Legends, betting on the game has never been simpler or more accessible. even League of Legends fantasy betting sites. League of Legends can be downloaded by visiting Riot Games’ website and following the installation instructions.
