Killer Instinct

Rare’s classic fighting series Killer Instinct may not be the household name it once was, but the ability to play one character for free is enticing nonetheless.

What’s more, characters can be purchased a la carte as downloadable content, which means you don’t have to shell out a wad of cash unnecessarily for characters you’ll never play. And, for the Xbox fans out there, this game is essentially Microsoft’s equivalent of Super Smash Bros. and PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale since you can pick up numerous Xbox mascots. These include Arbiter (Halo), Rash (Battletoads) and General RAAM (Gears of War) in addition to a growing catalog of Killer Instinct-specific characters.

While Killer Instinct isn’t as popular with the Fighting Game Community, there is a certain novelty of being able to control these classic Xbox-derived characters, and on PC at that.

World of Tanks

World of Tanks is a different kind of MMO – which you should have guessed from the title. Team-based, massively multiplayer action with a huge range of war machines to drive into battle awaits, with new players able to jump into the fray right away.

The upgrade system adds a sense of personalization, while being surrounded by an entire army at all times reminds you that loners won’t survive on the battlefield. Get sucked in, though, and you may find yourself spending a chunk of your wages on great big chunks of virtual metal.

While some premium tanks cost just a few dollars, others are more expensive. You can see where maker Wargaming is earning some cash from World of Tanks enthusiasts.

Heroes of the Storm

It was only a matter of time before Blizzard dipped its toe into the MoBA phenomenon, and with Heroes of the Storm, we’re left asking: what took so long? It’s an incredibly approachable esports title, somewhere between League of Legends and DOTA 2 in terms of complexity, with the added bonus of characters you know and love.

That’s right, the roster is completely made up of Blizzard characters from across its library of classic games. Have you ever wondered who would win in a fight between Thrall and Kerrigan? Well, now you can see that fight play out on the battlefield.

Blizzard knocked it out of the park here, making one of the best free games that keeps getting better by the day.

Everquest

Though its future was briefly uncertain after the sale of Sony’s online entertainment division in February 2015, Everquest has returned better than ever with new expansion packs and continued support by Daybreak Game Company.

The first of its kind to commercially succeed with a 3D game engine, Everquest was released in 1999 as an MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) and has since been documented as one of the most important games in the medium’s history.

Featuring consistently released expansion packs (quite massive in scale, at least early on) with vast new areas, races and classes, Everquest brings to the table just about everything you would expect from an MMO – plus it’s notably better at handling co-op than its alternatives.

Given that there are hundreds of thousands of titles spanning a range of genres — role-playing, platforming, sports, etc. — we’ve also decided to break them down into distinct sections for your perusal. Now, if only everything in life was as simple as choosing a game for your evening commute.

ACTION AND ADVENTURE GAMES

Oceanhorn

If you’re a Legend of Zelda fan, then Oceanhorn might be the game for you. The popular title features a solid narrative and terrific visuals, along with a captivating soundtrack. It’s pretty easy to play, too.

Monster Hunter Stories ($20)

Monster Hunter World has been a massive hit in the gaming console world, but now there’s a mobile version, too, called Monster Hunter Stories. It’s a little more cartoonish than the console game, and still costs $20 (though there are no in-app purchases) but those who loved the console game may want to continue playing in its universe, making this an excellent choice for them. In Monster Hunter Stories, you’ll travel around the world looking for monsters to hunt and tame.

Dragon Ball Legends

The Dragon Ball series has seen somewhat of a resurgence over the past few years, and Dragon Ball Heroes capitalizes on that. The game is a lot of fun, especially if you’re a Dragon Ball fan, and it sees you fight through a series of different levels, collecting abilities and characters along the way. It’s also built to be played in portrait mode, which makes it easy to play on the road.

RACING GAMES

Real Racing 3

Real Racing 3

If you want to burn some rubber in a wide range of meticulously re-created cars on an impressive lineup of real tracks from around the globe, then this is the game for you. With countless events to enter, cross-platform multiplayer, and lots of customization options, this is one of the best racing games around.

Horizon Chase

Photorealism is great, but it’s much more important when developers focus on building a game that’s actually fun. That’s what the creators of Horizon Chase have done. The game may not look like you’re really there, but as you race through the vibrant and colorful levels, you won’t really care.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild bug lets Link ignore temperature effects

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild bug lets Link ignore temperature effects

Activating the bug tricks the game into thinking that Link is still in a shrine after loading an older save. The initial application of the glitch was to give Link both max hearts and stamina, which is impossible to achieve over the normal course of the game due to the limited number of shrines and Spirit Orbs.

The bug also allows Link to ignore temperature effects. This means that players may traverse Death Mountain or climb Hebra’s peaks without the necessary clothes to ward off the heat and cold. In fact, players will be able to complete the game with Link in just his boxer shorts.

In addition to the environmental temperature effects in Breath of the Wild, the Apparatus Storage glitch also renders temperature and weather obstacles ineffective, such as fire and electricity in shrines. Enemies with elemental attacks also deal no damage, and Guardians are much easier to defeat as a significant part of their attack power comes from the associated fire attribute.

The Apparatus Storage glitch is deactivated by accessing a shrine, going into a Divine Beast, entering the Trial of the Swords, loading a save file, and teleporting. Gaming Reinvented also suggested that players may create their own New Game Plus for Breath of the Wild with the bug by transferring all their upgrades to a brand new save file.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice beginner’s guide

Master Shinobi combat with our Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice beginner’s guide

sekiro shadows die twice beginners guide sekirostealth

There are two main ways you can assassinate or launch a powerful sneak-attack “Shinobi Deathblow” on enemies in Sekiro, both of which deal equal amounts of damage. The first is to sneak up behind an enemy (crouch by clicking the left stick and lock on by clicking the right stick) and hitting the attack button when a red circle appears. If it’s standard enemy with only one health bar, this will be an instant kill. If it’s an enemy with more than one health bar, it will eliminate the first.

You can also perform a stealth attack by leaping from above. Lock onto an unaware enemy underneath your position and line up a jump so you land on top of it. When the red circle appears, hit the attack button and you’ll drive your sword into them.

If you’re used to being able to stealth-kill enemy after enemy like in Splinter Cell or Metal Gear Solid, you’ll be in trouble with Sekiro. Stealth-killing an enemy will almost always alert nearby enemies.

Additionally, the target you’re attacking has to be unaware of your exact location. If they have a red triangle over their head or are actively attacking you, the attack won’t work in the early stages of the game. If the triangle is yellow, however, that means they’re searching for you but don’t know your location – you can still sneak behind them for the kill.

Hit-and-run tactics can be viable in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, as long as you have a means of escape. Drop down or sneak up behind an enemy for your first kill, then look for grappling points above you. If one is available, it will display as a green circle, and you can hold the left trigger to zip up and away from danger. Wait for the enemies to forget about you and do the whole thing over again!

Swordfighting

sekiro shadows die twice beginners guide sekirosword

Things pop off whenever enemies spot you in Sekiro, and that’s where standard sword fighting comes into play. This isn’t like Dark Souls where you simply block before dealing damage to enemies. Instead, you have to use a combination of attacks, dodges, deflections, and blocks to wear down your target’s Posture. Once this is done, you can land a Shinobi Deathblow that is identical to the stealth assassination attack.

This means that you have to stay aggressive, as Posture recharges over time and it takes forever to whittle down an enemy’s health without breaking their Posture.

The best way to stay on the offensive – and even occasionally earn instant kills – is to deflect enemies’ attacks. Instead of holding down the “block” button, press it just before you’re about to get hit and you’ll knock the enemy’s weapon away. This will damage their Posture and give you a second to get in a hit or two of your own.

Stamina isn’t a factor in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, so you can also dodge as much as you want. This doesn’t affect your Posture and can often give you the opportunity to land some hits on a tough enemy, but it’s not a universal strategy. If an enemy seems too quick for dodging, they probably are.

Just like in the Dark Souls games, you have a healing item called the Healing Gourd that refills whenever you rest at the Sculptor’s Idol checkpoint areas. It has a limited number of charges that can be expanded by using Gourd Seeds, found from certain enemies and throughout the world. You need to use the Healing Gourd, even if you aren’t closed to death, because your health is tied to the rate at which your Posture recharges. Fight with half-health, and you’re making things more difficult for yourself.

Shinobi Prosthetic

sekiro shadows die twice beginners guide sekiroprosthetic

The biggest addition to the From Software formula in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is the Shinobi Prosthetic, a false arm given to the Wolf after the prologue. It can be fitted with a variety of attachments, and they’re activated by pulling the right trigger during combat. Available attachments include a flamethrower, a spring-loaded spear, and a shuriken launcher, each of which offers unique benefits. All of these are tied to consumable Spirit Emblems, which can be found in the game world and enemies, or purchased at a Sculptor’s Idol.

If you’re struggling with a certain type of enemy, there’s a good chance an attachment could take care of it. Shielded enemies, for instance, are susceptible to the axe, while fire can be useful for dealing damage and wearing down Posture. You can get creative with how you use the attachments, and can swap between your equipped ones on the fly by hitting the Triangle or Y button.

You’ll find additional attachments over the course of your adventure, and they’re often located in chests. You can’t use them without first going to the Dilapidated Temple you visited at the start of your journey. There, the Sculptor will take your new attachment and fit it to your prosthetic.

BET ON THE MOST POPULAR SPORTS IN INDIA

Online Cricket Betting in India

Although cricket is not officially our national sport, it certainly is in the hearts and minds of most Indian people. Cricket is the most popular sport on the subcontinent. Nothing gets the family together like the Indian national cricket team and some homecooked dal makhani.

Watching cricket among friends or family is always cozy and super exciting. But nothing gets the excitement going like a good old-fashioned wager. That’s why we love betting on cricket here at Mybetting. Watching your favorite game in good company and winning some money at the same time. What could be better?

Horse Race Betting in India

Horse racing is another one of those sports that have always been able to unite the nation. It’s arguably the second most popular sport in India. Betting on horses has been a part of the Indian culture for a long time.

I remember when my dad and I used to go down to the Madras Turf Club here in Chennai on Sunday afternoons to watch Storm Again and Piccolina face each other over the Indian derby title. Those were good times!

Betting on horse racing is one of the most intense and breathtaking experiences in sports betting. It’s so fast-paced and unpredictable. Becoming successful at horse race betting requires a commitment of time and a good deal of analytical skills. You will need to analyze the history of every horse competing in a given race before placing your bet.

Fortunately, we are here to help you with all the details of becoming a successful horse race punter. It all starts with selecting the right betting site. You should also be sure that this betting site offers live streaming of all the races. If you can’t go to the race course, watching it live from your computer screen is just as good and offers plenty of excitement. Please click through here to find more info on how to start betting on horses.

Football Betting in India

Football Betting in India

Although football has never reached the kind of popularity that cricket and horse racing has, it’s still one of the most popular sports in the world, so naturally, a lot of Indians enjoy watching football as well. It’s one of those sports that we enjoy watching more than actually playing. That is probably why the Indian national football team has never won any important tournaments.

Still, football is very popular in India, especially the Shillong Premier League, the Champion’s League in Europe as well as the English Premier League. Fortunately, most betting sites offer plenty of opportunities to bet on football, as it’s one of the most popular sports worldwide. It’s easy to get started on football betting, and it’s very easy to get a hang of it.

When choosing a football betting site, first make sure that they accept Indian players. Now make sure that the betting site offers live streaming as well as live betting. These features make it so much more exciting to watch a match that you have invested money in. If you have never tried it, I really recommend that you go check out our informational article on football betting in India.

By using one of the bookmakers here on our site, you will be guaranteed to also receive a bonus when you sign up for your new account. Most betting sites offer some kind of welcome bonus. As an example, by signing up with Royal Panda, you can receive a welcome bonus which gives you the same amount as your deposit on top.

That means that if you deposit ₹2,000, you will receive an extra ₹2,000 in bonus, so you end up with ₹4,000 in total. If you deposit ₹10,000, you will receive an ad!tional ₹10,000, so you end up with ₹20,000 in total! With a great welcome bonus like this, you get the best possible start to your betting adventure.

We invite you to click here if you want to read more about the different betting offers that you can receive from a bookmaker.

Free Bets

Many Indian betting sites also offer a type of bonus called free bets. This means you get the chance to place a wager without putting any money down. It’s a great way to make a profit without taking any risk. Many betting sites in India offer free bets as a welcome bonus.

For example, Unibet will give you up to ₹2,500 in free bets when you create a new account. This will allow you to place bets up to ₹2,500 without taking any risk. If you win, you get to keep the money. If you lose, then at least you didn’t lose any of your own money.

Many betting sites offer free bets on a regular basis. For example, over at Betway, they give away free bets on a weekly basis if you take part in the Free Bet Club-promotion. Free bets every week. What’s not to like about that?

So how do free bets actually work? Well, let’s say the betting site gives you a free bet of ₹1,000. You choose to use your free bet by placing a wager on Chennai Super Kings to win outright over Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL at odds 1.50.

As you place your bet, the bet slip will appear on your screen and you will have the option to use your own money or use your free bet. You choose your free bet. Now you place the bet and no cash is deducted from your betting account.

Now let’s say MS Dhoni was having a really terrific day with some amazing finishes and your team, Chennai Super Kings won this match outright. The winnings are ₹1,500, but because you wagered ₹1,000 at odds 1.50, you only get to keep the ₹500 because the ₹1,000 technically didn’t come from you. Makes sense right?

HOW TO DEPOSIT MONEY TO AN ONLINE BETTING SITE IN INDIA

So now that you have set up your betting account, it’s time to deposit some money so you can start playing. There are numerous ways to do this, but the safest, fastest and best option is to use an eWallet because most betting sites accept these. Follow these 3 simple steps to get money into your betting account:

  1. Create an eWallet account at Neteller or Skrill.
  2. Deposit money into this account using either Federal Bank or ICICI Bank.
  3. Transfer that money from your eWallet to your betting account.

There you have it. The easiest deposit option for most Indian players. However, in some cases, this may not be the best option for you. Maybe you don’t have access to use a bank account. Fortunately, ther eare plenty of other options as well. If you don’t have a bank account, the best option is to use a prepaid card:

  1. Buy an AstroPay card or a Neosurf card from an online retailer.
  2. Pay for your card using either cash, mobile money or local bank transfer.
  3. Use your new prepaid card to deposit money into your betting site of choice.

These are some of the most common ways to deposit money into a betting site. Many bookmakers have way more options that you can use for depositing money. Some accept local bank transfers in India, most sites accept credit/debit cards and some even accept mobile money.

The most popular option is to use an eWallet because it is fast, secure and it allows you to be anonymous. The most common ones are Neteller and Skrill like mentioned above, but PayPalis also used by plenty of online betting sites.

Neteller and Skrill are often used by betting sites because it is easy to use and comes with low transaction fees. Both eWallet solutions are part of the Paysafe group, which make them very trustworthy and reliable companies. Others may prefer to use PayPal, but not all betting sites offer this solution, so be sure to check with your preferred bookmaker beforehand.

Please click here to read more about payment methods. If you have issues or questions about funding your account, do not hesitate to contact us or the bookmaker in question. We will gladly help you solve the problem of funding your new account.

Is betting legal in India?

Which betting site in India has the best deposit options?

We have received a lot of questions from our readers about which betting site is the best and easiest to deposit money into. Many Indian banks will not transfer money overseas, especially not to gambling sites, so it is really crucial that you choose a betting site with deposit methods that work for you.

Fortunately, many betting sites are aware of the problems facing Indian players and have made many accommodations to try and find solutions that could help those of us who want to gamble in India. One of the betting sites with the highest number of different deposit options is 22Bet. There are literally almost a hundred different ways to deposit money onto this betting site.

22Bet allows you to deposit money not only by bank transfer but also by credit card, e-wallet such as Skrill or Neteller and even prepaid cards. The option of using a prepaid card is a great solution because it’s something everyone can do. Every Indian player can get their hands on a prepaid card, and it’s really not that difficult.

How do I get a prepaid card in India?

There are many different types of prepaid cards available in India, but the two best ones for online betting are AstroPay card and Neosurf card. These two cards will allow you to deposit money into the betting sites that accept them. For example, Royal Panda accepts AstroPay card but not Neosurf card, whereas 22Bet accepts both AstroPay card and Neosurf card. Hopefully, more betting sites in India will start to accept these prepaid cards in the future, but until then we will just have to be happy that at least some of the betting sites accept them.

Both AstroPay cards and Neosurf cards are easy to obtain. They can be bought through online retailers and you can pay in either card, bank transfer or even mobile money. After you have made your purchase, you will get a digital card with money on which can be used to deposit money into a betting site. It’s simple, easy and it works for all Indian players. If none of the other deposit methods work for you, we highly recommend that you get a prepaid card.

How do I withdraw money from a betting site?

Withdrawing money from a betting site in India can seem like a daunting task. Many readers have asked us how they actually get the profits from their gambling into their bank account. Fortunately, the best betting sites all make it fairly simple and easy to withdraw money.

If you are having difficulties withdrawing money from a betting site in India, it’s probably not a good betting site, but more of a scam than anything else. The withdrawing procedure should be transparent and easy to understand. All the betting sites listed here on Mybetting live up to some very strict demands and we never recommend any betting sites that don’t make it easy to withdraw money.

All the betting sites here on Mybetting offer secure and easy withdrawal options for Indian players!

Most betting sites have a procedure where you need to make a withdrawal request. Then your withdrawal request is typically handled within 24 hours. This can seem like a bit of a hassle, but it’s actually just a security measure. All betting sites are regulated by some form of government authority which demands that they must keep track of where the money comes and goes. This is in order to reduce money laundering and fraud.

Most betting sites offer the two standard options of withdrawal which are bank transfer and credit/debit card. If those don’t work for you, you typically also have the option to withdraw money into an e-wallet like Neteller, Skrill or even Paypal. Many gambling sites also allow you to withdraw money to a prepaid card like an AstroPay card or a Neosurf card if you have something like that.

Before you make your first deposit to a betting site, make sure the withdrawal process is transparent and straightforward. It’s good to be one step ahead. If you don’t feel comfortable about the withdrawal procedure, simply go and look for a different betting site.

They are especially good for Indian players who may not have a bank account, as they also allow deposits in prepaid cards.

IS ONLINE GAMBLING LEGAL IN INDIA

The legal situation of gambling in India is a bit of a disputed topic but through our research and interviews with top legal experts in India, we have established that online gambling in India is not an illegal activity. Certainly, no one has ever been prosecuted or convicted for online gambling.

”If an Indian resident decides to place bets on a website hosted outside the country, it would be nearly impossible to hold him guilty of online gambling, if the laws of the country where the website is hosted, permits online gambling,” – Vikrant Pachnanda, New Delhi High Court Attorney.

Fortunately, most online gambling providers are not operating on Indian soil. In fact, most of them are headquartered licensed in jurisdictions across Europe. This provides us players with an opportunity to gamble, that we can use without fear of breaking any laws.

It has even been discussed in the media recently, that there is full legalization of gambling underway in India. Betting should be legalized according to the Law Commission, who recently published a 145-page report that recommends legalization of gambling under government regulation. It seems like the government is starting to realize that online gambling could be a very profitable business for them as well.

We have written a very in-depth article about the legal situation of gambling in India, where we post transcripts from our interview with one of the top legal experts on gambling in India. You can read the article here.

We will, of course, give you more information as this story evolves. You can always check back here on Mybetting for the latest news about betting in India.
