A lot of you do not know what pot sniping is. Or you do not know the term yet but have done it once or twice when playing. Well to make things short, pot sniping is placing bets at the last second with the intention of winning the whole CS:GO Jackpot prize for yourself. Now we will be breaking down the entire theory: how it works, when and where to use it, and the consequences for using it. I am also going to be talking about on how to avoid it, and how to spot people who use this same technique so you do not lose hard earned skins thru this method.
So…how does it work?
Now the first thing about it is to figure out how it works. This is just a matter of timing, odds, balance, and a little luck. It works fairly easy. All you have to do is to wait for a time to put your bets before the countdown timer stops. Like I said, this is usually done on jackpot or lottery games. Depending on how fast your internet speed is, sniping bets are fairly easy to do. Around 10 seconds before the timer ends, place your wager and let the system do the rest.
Now placing the wager is only the first step, and that is the easiest part. The other factors that affect your chances of winning when using it are a little bit harder and I will explain them here. The amount of disposable money for betting will determine the chances of winning you will have. The thing is, your chance to win relies on how much money you put in the pot. It gives you a bigger percentage to win. That is where odds, balance, and luck comes in. Once you have the perfect timing, you can start sniping CS:GO Jackpots and earning serious banks.
Where can I snipe?
Now for the fun part. Most of you would like to know when to use it once you have mastered the timing of it. The best place for sniping is on the sites with a lot of gamblers since that gives you more chances to win. You need to find a time where not a lot of people bet big and just surprise everyone by dropping a very big amount of skins right at the very end of the timer so that they cannot react. You need to be observant in this phase since you need to gauge how much the people are betting and need to calculate the exact amount which gives you a 50% or higher chance to win.
Try to avoid platforms where the user count is low because that is usually an indication that a resident shark lives there. Sharks are the users who are just like you, with a lot of money to throw around for betting. You need to avoid going against people like those unless you have more money to burn than them or out bet them. Once you find an established site that you like, you want to observe people playing first and check out patterns on how they play. This will also make you spot guys who are losing their money which will be perfect candidates for sniping.
Avoiding the technique from happening to you as well is relative to how much money you have at your disposal. If people see you tend to make very large bets, usually they will not try to contest you since they will just be throwing their cash around with a minuscule chance of winning. Being observant is also very crucial to this since there are times that you are not the only shark in the playground. If you get sniped once by someone that hits bigger than you, you would need to make a decision if you want to play more and take your chances or stop playing and just find another time to try when the big boys are not around.
Another way of avoiding it is testing the waters. If you place an amount that can be an acceptable loss to you for a round or two and someone snipes that bet every round and if it is the same guy, you might want to just avoid playing on those hours since people who usually use this method are very predictable and have a routine.
Of course, there are consequences when you keep doing this technique whenever you play. The most common one is people just stop playing if you continue winning by swiping the pot at the very last second. Whenever they see you do it once, they would just stop playing, which will be no fun to you if you want to profit. Another consequence is you might encounter someone who bets bigger than you and you are on the other side of the coin, the one being sniped.
Another one is that some people with just enough money could just gang up on you and put in their equal wagers but with many people thus lowering your chances as well. It is a high risk for you to do this but a lower risk for them with little rewards. This leaves to a conclusion that you do not need to snipe pots at every bet but need to mix it up so often that you do not leave being predictable.
All in all, winning with this technique is very easy to do and it is very quick to make a profit if you know how to do it. It is also very rewarding knowing you can pull it off anytime you want to if you perfect it. If you can minimize the consequences by playing it right and knowing when to do it and when not to. If you play your cards close to your vest, who knows. You might be able to turn your AK 47 Redline into an AWP Dragon Lore if you work hard enough and get lucky.
