History of Rocket League

You could say that Rocket League was conceived in 2008 when the game developer Psyonix released the car-soccer game Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars. The game wasn’t very popular despite its uniqueness and replayability. Psyonix announced Rocket League in 2014, as a small game studio, they relied on content creation on Twitch and YouTube to reach players. When the game was released in 2015 for Windows PC and PlayStation 4, it was an instant hit – wildly exceeding everyone’s expectations. In addition to being free-to-play, one large contributor to Rocket League’s success is that it can be played cross-platform. With the game being very spectator friendly, Rocket League streams quickly garnered a lot of viewership numbers on popular streaming platforms. With large audiences, online bookmakers were quick to start offering Rocket League betting.

Evolution of Rocket League Tournaments

Upon the game’s release, it became evident that people enjoyed watching Rocket League as much as they liked to play it.

Rocket League betting FAQ


Rocket League esports has been on a slow and steady rise for a couple of years now. It’s waiting to explode and become a tier 1 esport. Rocket League is easily accessible, outcomes in professional matches are decided by skill 99% of the time, there are two teams trying to score goals at each other. The premise of Rocket League esports is perfect for betting. So, what’s keeping Rocket League betting markets at a minimum? One reason why Rocket League odds isn’t offered very often is that Psyonix doesn’t allow other tournament organizers to run tournaments with prize pools that are greater than $5,000. If Psyonix opened up the Rocket League ecosystem, more professional tournaments could be organized which would allow for more Rocket League betting.
