Rainbow Six is an online multiplayer shooter that prioritises teamwork and strategical play. Since its release in 2015 the game has expanded over time with the addition of new maps, weapons, operators, and seasonal events.
The aim of the game is to either attack or defend an object from the enemy team. These are split into different game modes.
Hostage – In this mode, the attacking team must rescue the hostages from the defending team. As a defender, to win the round you need to keep the hostage captured for the allotted game time or eliminate all of the attacking players. The attacking team not only need to capture the hostage, but need to do so without harming them.
Bomb – The round starts with two bombs being planted on the map. The attacking team must locate and defuse one of the two bombs. The defending team are required to not only defend the bombs, but also try to eliminate the attacking team.
Secure Area – The defending team need to protect a room within the map which contains a biohazard container. The attacking team needs to secure the container. The game ends once all players from a team are killed or the attackers secure the biohazard container.
Outright – As with other esports events this is the most simple and popular betting market. You are picking which team you think will win the entire tournament.
Match Winner – This market is simple and doesn’t relate to the whole tournament. You are choosing which team you think will win an individual match.
Most Kills – This market relates to in-game play, and you will need to choose which of the players will achieve the most kills during the match. Given this is a difficult to predict market the odds of each player are usually high.
