What CS GO Is
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) is the most popular shooter of our time, standing at the origins of cybersport. There are 5 game modes in the computer game: normal, arms race, competitive, race to the death, destruction of an object.
The competitive component of CS: GO is extremely simple. The two opposing camps, the Terrorists and the Counter-Terrorists have the task of attacking or defending a bomb plot (captive). To win the round, it is necessary to destroy all enemies and detonate or defuse the bomb. To increase their chances of winning, players must buy armor and weapons.
The most prestigious tournaments are considered the two series:
- Major is a cybersports league supported by game developer Valve and an event organizer. The prize pool for the debut tournament of the DreamHack Winter 2013 series was $250,000, and since 2016 it has grown to $1,000,000. Fifteen majors were held between 2013 and 2019.
- Blast Premier is a relatively new CS: GO tournament series organized by BLAST in early 2020. The total guarantee for the first season was $4,250,000. In 2021, the PGL Major Stockholm 2021 was held in Stockholm, which drew $2,000,000.
The cybersports discipline has gained recognition around the world, leading to the emergence of other competition formats. The most famous of them are Blast Pro Series, IEM, and ESL.

Types of bets on Counter-Strike in Parimatch:
- Bets on the outcome. Wagers are accepted both before the start of the match and during the game. A draw is extremely rare, so in 90% of cases, bettors predict the victory or defeat of the team.
- Betting on the winner of the card. The bookmaker offers to guess the winner of this or that card. As a rule, when betting on a clear favorite, the odds are slightly lower than on the winner of the whole game.
- Total rounds. Here you have to guess the number of rounds played on a card or in the whole match. Usually, at least there are 15-16 rounds, after which the winner of the card is determined.
- Wins in individual rounds. This betting market is in demand among players who make predictions during the game. But you have to remember that video broadcasts go with a slight delay. When you make a bet, for example, on the 5th round, the bookmaker can already accept a bet on the 7th.
- Handicap. As in traditional sports disciplines, handicaps can be plus or minus. This kind of bet is in demand in matches with a clear outsider. Parimatch offers to bet on handicaps (+1.5) and (-1.5). The first option means that the team will win in one card out of three, while the second option means an absolute victory for the favorite in all rounds.
When betting on the matches of prestigious tournaments, bettors can count on the appearance of additional marquees in the listings. For example, the bookmaker often accepts bets on the victory of the team in the pistol and knife rounds, total cards.

How to Read CS GO Odds
If you learn how to read the odds, you won’t have any problems placing CS GO betting India. On the Parimatch website, the odds are given in decimal format, which is the most convenient for calculations. To determine your potential winnings, you need to multiply the bet amount by the current odds.
Suppose you want to bet on a Gambit win against FURIA:
If you bet 1,500 Indian rupees, in case your chosen team wins, your winnings will be: 1 500 × 1.33 = 1,995 (INR).
To determine the team’s chances of winning, divide 1 by the decimal odds and multiply the result by 100. In this case, Gambit has a 75% chance of defeating FURIA.
