About Halo 5

Halo 5: Guardians, first released in 2015, is the fifth installment of the popular series. 

It’s a first-person shooter set in the year 2558, where players compete in various game modes like slayer, which is a battle royale style deathmatch, and capture the flag.

Despite being released almost 5 years ago, Halo 5 remains popular thanks to a monthly player base of 76,000, which means lots of Halo 5 betting options.

Many online sportsbooks now provide Halo 5 betting offers and odds and as a new player you can also use their welcome bonuses as Halo 5 free bets when you bet on Halo 5 online.

Major Tournaments & Leagues

Since its release, Halo 5 has maintained a steady presence in tournaments raging from international-scale majors, to 2v2 online competitions. 

Here are some of the biggest Esports tournaments and leagues Halo 5 frequently features in…


DreamHack is an organisation which hosts digital festivals across the world and regularly features Halo 5 tournaments. Recent locations include Anaheim, Atlanta and Dallas and has featured prize pools of £40,000.


The Halo Championship Series is organised by the game’s developers and has regularly pitted some of the worlds best players against each other. Despite last year’s announcement that it would be the last one featuring Halo 5, you can bet there’ll be another organisation ready to take its place.

Halo 5 Free Bets

In spite of Halo 5’s dwindling popularity, which has been partly caused by this year’s eagerly anticipated release of the sequel, there are still a large number of sportsbooks offering Halo 5 betting odds, and free bets for you to take advantage of. 

Here are some of the best offers…

BetVictor Esports are offering new users the chance to bet £10 and get £30 in free bets and bonuses.

Vbet Esports are giving out up to £25 in free bets on deposits from just £5.

And finally, BetHard Esports are giving new users up to £50 in real cash, when you deposit your first £20.

Upcoming Events

A combination of the global pandemic combined with the decision to discontinue the HCS has robbed Halo 5 fans of a major event to look forward to this year.

However, multi game tournaments like World Cyber Games in China regularly host Halo 5 tournaments and are poised to take over. 

Tournament dates and official games haven’t been announced yet, but pressure is increasing, so expect an announcement soon.

While awaiting news on further tournaments, you can feed your newfound love for Halo 5 betting through online games, with many sportsbooks now offering odds for this kind of game.
