The importance of slot platforms

If you play UK slots online you may have noticed that different online casinos offer different games and that the games they offer depend on the software or gambling platform that the online casino runs on. So let’s take a look at what that means to you as a player.

Online casinos don’t generally develop their own software for the games they offer, be it slots or blackjack, instead they partner with a developer who is an expert in what they do. The developers will create the games and also make sure that they are fair for the player to play. This creates a bit of distance between the game and the casino because if a casino developed their own games, well, it might be a bit too tempting to make sure they won as often as possible. However developers are encouraged to make sure the casinos don’t cheat since that would reflect badly on them and make it more difficult for them to sell their software. Continue reading

Is this the end of Ronaldo and Messi’s dominance in the Ballon d’Or?

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are the two greatest players of our generation, comparable to legends like Pele and Maradona. Between the two of them, they have dominated the Ballon d’Or award, winning it 10 times consecutively since 2008. Could 2018 be the first year to break this monopoly?

Ronaldo is the second favourite to win the Ballon d’Or, behind Croatia’s Luka Modric. The Portuguese superstar was part of the Real Madrid team who won an unprecedented third consecutive Champions League title. Croatia captain Modric was also part of that Real Madrid team while he also played a key role in helping Croatia reach the World Cup final, losing to France 4-2.

The nearly-favourites

Modric isn’t the only star from the World Cup who is high in the odds to win the prestigious award. Kylian Mbappe, the teenage sensation, has fast become one of the world’s best players and with his scintillating skills on the ball, coupled with his rapid pace across the field, he is gaining admirers worldwide. He became the first teenager since Pele to score in a World Cup final and despite not winning the Champions League with PSG, he was a key member of the France squad who won their first World Cup since 1998.

5 Top Racecourses in the UK

The UK loves to gamble, this is proven by the number of bingo halls on our high street and the fact that Slot Games can be enjoyed inside just about every bar. However, if you want to enjoy a more refined day out which involves gambling, a trip to the races is for you!

There’s no shortage of racecourses in the UK, with over 60 for you to enjoy,  some of which are more famous than others and each of which offer something unique that makes them special.

Below, we’ve listed our five top racecourses in the UK that you may want to visit and check off your list.


Talking about horse racing without mentioning Ascot is difficult.  It’s particularly picturesque in the summer when they host a five day festival for racing fans. They host fantastic entertainment, as well as food and drink that draws a crowd.  The racecourse was founded in 1711 by none other than Queen Anne and has more recently catered for Queen Elizabeth II.  Every year a member of the Royal family is in attendance, bringing publicity and increasing appeal.  This racecourse oozes traditional style which is what makes it stand out.

Why NFL Betting Online Makes Sense

Most of us who have been to Las Vegas or Atlantic City have placed a sports bet at one of the huge sportsbooks that we saw at a gaudy casino, and the majority of those bets were placed on an NFL or College Football game. If we want to bet on these games at home, however, our options are limited to using a bookie over the phone or betting online. There is no question that NFL betting online is the smarter option, but did you know that it’s also a better move than using a Vegas sportsbook!

Here are just a few reasons why wagering on football online makes sense:

1. They want your business more, and they’re willing to pay for it.

Do you really think that it matters to the Wynn’s sportsbook if you take your measly $100 parlay with them or with the guys across the Strip? They offer their NFL lines and Super Bowl odds and they’ll pour you a free watered-down drink while you look at them, but that’s about it for special deals. Online sportsbooks are a different story. There are thousands of them out there so in order to stand out they will make you a far sweeter deal.

They’ll give you free money if you bet with them: in the form of a sign-up bonus and in reload bonuses.

They’ll run special promotions and competitions. If you bet with them on a certain day, say taking your NFL bets on a Friday you will qualify for lower juice on all your winning bets – try getting that deal in Vegas!

They will send you free gifts like pagers, golf shirts, and tote bags to reward you for being a loyal client.

Most importantly, if you are a serious sports bettor looking to make serious money from your NFL bets you have to bet online because they offer critical stretches on NFL lines. Online sportsbooks do offer superior odds on many NFL games, that’s a fact. If you don’t know how important that ½ point stretch can be then you clearly have never bet on football before.

2. They’re convenient and idiot-proof

Most of us don’t want to fly to Vegas every time we want to place a bet on the NFL, and a lot of us aren’t comfortable phoning some guy who works out of the back of a laundry to take our action. We’ve seen “The Sopranos” and know that a lot of bucket shops are run by bookmakers without the best credentials. Online sportsbooks are open 24/7 and have incredible customer service departments. They will take you through every step and if you ever have a problem or question the result of a bet they can sort it out for you. Their reputation matters a lot to them, so they will do whatever it takes to keep you as a satisfied client.

You can bet on the NFL whenever you want to, and it’s virtually impossible to make a mistake with your bet. There are confirmation screens and records of every bet you placed. Continue reading

5 ½ Reasons Why England Are Going To Win the World Cup

After sampling the ‘delights’ of a packed out Elland Road for the final friendly warm-up match against Costa Rica, the Three Lions faithful should be absolutely buzzing. Not only did they beat Costa Rica 2-0 but they showed everyone in attendance and the millions watching around the world  that there are five-and-a-half reasons why England are going to win the World Cup.

1.    Marcus Rashford

Coming off the back of a campaign where Marcus Rashford has been asked to play as a wing back by Manchester United Dictator Manager Joseph Mourinho, it looks as though Rashford has been storing all of his skill and guile in reserve for the World Cup.

Not only did the explosive young forward delight the crowd with a ‘Flip-Flap’ so good it sent the entire Costa Rica backline for a hot dog…

…he scored an absolute worldie that Cristiano Messiahimovic would have been proud of:

(Currently 150/1 on the Betfair odds to win world cup market to finish top goal scorer – free money anyone?)

2.    Formation

There has been a debate raging for years about how you fit all of our top-tier players into an effective starting line-up. Fans have been arguing Lampard over Gerrard, the benefits of Scholes and Carrick and whether we can afford to get a plane with wheelchair access to accommodate Jack Wilshere at the tournament.

Image Source:

At first glance England’s 3-3-2-2 formation against Costa Rica looked like someone was trying too hard to show they’ve got tactical nous but it actually worked. England played a team that wasn’t 472nd or below in world rankings and didn’t lose. Not only that, they’ve solved the conundrum of slotting the best of the best into a starting line up with Fabian Delph, Eric Dier and Danny Welbeck all playing together and bossing the proceedings.

Europe’s premier race; the Prix de L’Arc

Europe’s premier race; the Prix de L’Arc inaugurated back in 1920 and has continued to grow in statue. It has established itself as the most prestigious horse racing event and is a targeted group 1 as many of the top horses across the world are brought over to France to take part. With this in mind it has been won by a long list of the top horses ever to race. One that must come to mind is the mighty Mill Reef.

Mill Reef had an amazing career in which he won 12 times and finished runner up in 2 others in his 14 race career. He won a list of awards throughout his career that included the English 3 year old Champion Colt in 1971 and the English Champion older horse in 1972.

In his two year old campaign he won a list of the top races such as the Coventry stakes at Royal Ascot and the Dewhurst at Newmarket. He followed this up the following years by winning the Epsom Derby, King George and of course the Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe. He won the Arc impressively by beating star French filly Pistol Packer by 3 lengths. Mill Reef will forever be remembered as one of the top horses to have ever raced. This infographic will cover the stats and facts on Europe’s key race and why it is the best. The latest horse racing betting odds can be found here ahead of the huge Champions day meeting at Ascot later this month.

Tottenham striker troubles

Although Tottenham vs West Ham may not be the fiercest of rivalries, their proximity to each other means it can still be considered a derby. Whilst there have been a lot of goals and drama in recent seasons alone, there have also been some misfiring strikers that have played for both teams throughout the year. It’s no secret that West Ham are struggling for goals at the moment, and it has been a while since they signed a goalscoring striker – hopefully the signing of Javier Hernandez will fix this. Although Harry Kane has been firing in the goals in the last few seasons, Tottenham have also had their fair share of misfiring strikers. If you’re a football betting fan who has bet on Spurs to win, you’ll be glad that you won’t be seeing any of these misfiring Tottenham strikers on the pitch:

Roberto Soldado

The best place to start for misfiring Tottenham strikers is Spaniard Roberto Soldado. After selling Gareth Bale for a then-world record fee of £85 million in 2013, Tottenham reinvested the money in their playing squad. One of the incoming players was Soldado who was brought in for a then-club record £26 million and came with high expectations. The Spaniard did manage to get off to a good start at his new club, scoring the winning penalty in the first game of the season, and then scoring a brace four days later in the Europa League playoff round. Although Soldado had an impressive goal-scoring record in Europe, where he scored five goals in seven games, it was in the Premier League where he struggled badly. The striker only managed to score six league goals in his debut season, and only two on them were from open play. His next season was even worse, only scoring five goals in 40 appearances in all competitions. After his two disappointing seasons, Soldado ended up returning to Spain. However, he has yet to gain his goal-scoring form which earned him the big money move to White Hart Lane in the first place. Continue reading

Champions league odds

Real Madrid have started this year’s champions league as favourites again as they go to break more records in becoming the first team to triumph in Europe’s premier competition for the third year in a row. They started the competition as 7/2 favourites to do so with the nearest challenges being the big spending PSG at 13/2.

PSG have spent a staggering amount ahead of this season bringing in the likes of Neymar so are expected to be a force against any of the big teams. Group B is one of the most competitive with two of the top 3 favourites fighting it out. Continue reading
