Thunderpick REVIEW 2018
Brief overview & history
Thunderpick is a new player in the betting field, as it launched in 2015. Despite their short history, the site has quickly gained a positive reputation for a number of reasons – the betting fees there are one of the lowest, there are zero complaints against it, and their customer support is incredible, especially with the live chat option. In addition, they rely on a pool betting system which encourages mutual betting strategies – you don’t bet against the platform but in rivalry with other existing users. The cool thing about Thunderpick is their emphasis on esports betting and they present you with many options to wager on.
Special offers/bonuses & how it’s played
New customers at Thunderpick can get up to £500 in deposit bonuses, but not all of their promotions are eligible for esports betting. However, their Coin-Winning system is directed primarily at fantasy sports. Referring the site to friends earns us coins, and the only requirements are to have a verified Steam account and to own DOTA 2, CS: GO, or PUBG. Another way to grab coins is by adding “Thunderpick” to your Steam account name – this lets us play a game for 30 minutes a day and win coins on a 24-hour basis. Promotional terms can change according to country and time periods so be sure to take note of the details.
The variety of esports betting options at Thunderpick is mind-blowing. We can stake against other players in Call of Duty, CS: GO, DOTA 2, Fortnite, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, League of Legends, Overwatch, NBA2K, Rainbow Six, Rocket League, and StarCraft 2. While there are a few esports betting options missing (Warcraft and WoW, for example) the majority of competitive titles are here.

How much focus does esports get?
Thunderpick is targeted mostly towards esports betting. The Esports menu bar is the left-most button on the home page with everything else coming after it. The focus on esports is enormous which defines the site as one of the best places to conduct any esports bets. Once we click on the Esports tab, we can choose our desired game, or we can look at all matches/events available. We have Upcoming, Live, Outrights, and Combo bet options shown. We can place a single bet, combine more bets, or challenge the community with our pro predictions. The site only has around 300,000 users but this can still grant us huge profits if we play our virtual cards right!
Esports betting at Thunderpick
Esports betting possibilities at Thunderpick include Single match winner, Tournament winner, Over/Under Number of rounds/maps, Map winner, MVP awards, First Blood time/player, Dragon/Boss takedowns, and more.

The array of payment options at the site is incredible, and we are sure that you will find the right provider for your transactions.

There is a live chat open at almost all times, as well as email. The latter may sometimes lead to a reply wait period of up to 2 days. The customer support at Thunderpick can also be reached via social media – Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, and VK are all ways of contacting the support team, with the first two having the fastest response times. The customer service on all channels is extremely friendly and helpful!
