Popular sporting events

Horse racing is still the most popular form of sports betting in the world and last year almost £12 billion was wagered on the sport. Although the bookmakers had a reasonable season, there were many very happy punters too. This is the time of year when we move from the National Hunt season to the Flat Racing Season, and there are plenty of events to look forward to; you don’t have to be upper class or a chav to visit Royal Ascot, though of course it helps.

Although the British football season is drawing to a close, you can always bet on European other games. There is plenty of action in the summer leagues and in particular Braziliero where betting on draws can often be the way to go. The most popular summer league in Europe is Allsvenskan, the Swedish summer league. There are just 16 teams involved and more often than not it is the away team that wins. Though if you like the unpredictable, there are few things more unpredictable than summer football in the Irish Republic.

This year bookmakers are anticipating a significant rise in the number of cricket bets. This has all the promise of being the most exciting cricket season for some years and is marked by a back to back Ashes series along with a test series against New Zealand.
The Formula One season is also heating up; although McLaren has got off to a bad start, it is also looking as if Jenson Button is finding the driving of his new teammate Sergio Perez somewhat challenging. Has Jenson still got what it takes or will Perez beat him on points? It is definitely worth a punt at the right odds.

With all of this sporting action going on, there are also lots of new excitements to enjoy at your top online casino. Games developers are always coming up with new ways to challenge you, and there is now a whole plethora of sports themed casino games on which to try out your skills. Sports themes slots are particularly popular. For example, golf themed video slots games like Lucky Shot are likely to appeal to golf fans who have the opportunity to hit Fore! from the comfort of their online device.
