Naturally, you can bet on all The International action with Betway UK!

These characters are known as the players’ champions, which, you have to admit, is a much more impressive name. The objective of each game is to destroy the opposing team’s building, which is known as its Nexus. All through the game, players can improve their champions by obtaining different items and gaining different powers.

You can bet on different champions, specific numbers of kills, winners of each round and overall victors in the many League of Legends tournaments that are played around the world. We’ve got a superb selection at Betway, including great options on the World Tournament that is currently taking place.
