Just as the football promotion, Super League punters can also get double and triple the odds on the first try-scorer.

Our Verdict

Betfred have clearly tried to differentiate themselves from the rest of the herd.

Although it may not draw as much attention as 2UP, Double Delight Hat Trick Heaven can be more lucrative offer for punters to exploit.

But I would strongly suggest you only use this promotion if first goal-scorer bets are already part of your long-term winning strategy. FGS bets are not for the faint hearted due as you are your more likely to lose your shirt than come out on top.

Overall Betfred DDHH offers punters something unique with real value and if you were planning on placing a FGS bet, then this is the cherry on the cake if it comes off.

Bookmaker Deposits using Libra Coin – What’s not to Like?

bookmaker deposits using libra coin

Since it’s announcement a few weeks back, Zuckerberg’s new digital coin Libra has come under intense scrutiny from politicians and regulators alike, concerned of a new virtual currency that’s outside of the US fiat monetary system.

But Libra coin opens up a lot of possibilities to simplify mobile payments for millions of users and provide a stable currency, something that we take for granted in the west.

In this months Betting on Tech we discuss just what Libra can offer punters.

What obstacles lie ahead for bookmakers adopting this payments service.

And whether or not we’ll see bookmaker deposits using Libra coin in the future.

Libra for the masses

So why should bookmakers start accepting Libra coin?

While our US friends are just dripped their toe into in field, sports betting in the UK has slowed down to single-digit growth.

As a result bookmakers are constantly throwing new and better promotions to lure punters from rival bookies.

Boo-hoo I hear to say!

While I don’t have much sympathy for them, i’m fully aware that bookmakers are facing an upward struggle. In the past that has meant creating innovative products such a money back specials and same-game-multi’s to stay ahead of the competition.

But most punters are looking for three things:

1. A well established trust-worthy (I use the term loosely) bookmaker site.
2. Decent odds and commission charges relative to other bookies.
3. A platform that makes the whole process a breeze.

The later is important, because one major part of that betting process is payment i.e. transferring funds from your bank account to the bookmaker.

I would argue that any bookmaker that takes the lead in accepting Libra coin will see a record number in new and existing customers joining their platform resulting in record profits.

Why would bookmakers choose Libra coin over crypto?

So i’m sure the next question any crypto fanboy will ask is:

Why choose Libra over existing crypto’s such as Bitcoin and Ethereum?

There’s a good reason why bookmakers have shied away from accepting crypto currencies in the past and will continue to do so…

Anonymity.

Bitcoin, Ethereum and all other crypto’s were designed so the wallet holder remains anonymous.

And there lies the problem…

Bookmakers are heavily regulated by the Gambling Commission and are under strict guidelines to avoid any accounts that could be used for money laundering purposes.

With so many issues that come with crypto (some that may be over exaggerated) they’ve decided it’s just not worth it.

Why Libra is different…

bookmakers libra coin app
First preview of how Facebook’s digital wallet will look.

OK so why would Libra coin be any different?

Well for a start it would be connected to a genuine Facebook user account.

Now I appreciate that at present, anyone can create a fake Facebook user account in minutes, so hear me out.

If Facebook wants to get this new digital payment system through congress, they’re going to need to have a compelling argument and the key to this will be to guarantee user authenticity.

Facebook will achieve this by using sophisticated artificial intelligent software that will  reference your friends to your phone contacts and interactions within the account.

In this year alone Facebook has deleted 2 million fake account using this process.

The second is that your Libra wallet would need to be connected to a regular bank account which would further verify the account holder.

Facebook will also likely ask for some form of photo ID before signing up to Libra for enhanced security.

Is this all too orwellian for you? Yes but that’s another conversation…

With all of these security checks and financial regulations in place, bookmakers would be crazy to miss out on the potential opportunity that lies ahead with hundreds of millions of users with access to this digital payment system.

It’s a win-win for bookmakers.

A Spanner in the Works

The only thing that could stop bookmakers from integrating Libra onto their platform is of course if Facebook doesn’t allow it.

But given that Facebook would be paid by bookmakers a small percentage fee for each transaction you make, they would be fools not to.

Would Facebook allow bookmaker deposits using Libra coin?

Even though big tech companies portray themselves as being liberal and ethical entities. They are still multi-national corporations that need to be consistently improving profits over time to their shareholders.

Google for instance only recently relaxed their policy in allowing bookmaker apps onto their Play Store.

More recently a number of institutional banks and new online only banks such as Monzo have introduced gambling restrictions to allow user to block payments to bookmakers as a way to help curb gambling additions.

So there could still be push-back even if Libra was being actively used.

Our Verdict

OK so Libra coin hasn’t even been released yet on Facebook and there are still many obstacles ahead for Zuckerberg and his team of developers to iron-out before we start using it.

But this new fintech payment system is just the beginning of a new wave of financial services we’re likely to see, whether government officials like it or not.

If bookmakers want to survive and fend-off the competition they have to be constantly improving their services for their customers and simpler mobile payments is just one of them.

While it’s unlikely we’ll see punters depositing to bookmakers using Libra coin any time soon. I can certainly see this and other stable-coin offerings from big-tech companies such as Google and Apple being introduced within the next five years. Watch this space!

Could Monzo be the Solution to Deposit Funds to Bookmakers?

could monzo be the future of bookmaker deposits

Monzo is the UK’s first online only bank, that aims to shake-up the banking system.

The digital payments app is growing at a rapid rate, with two million users and more than 200k new customers signing up each month.

In this article i’ll explain just what is it that gives this online bank an edge over it’s competitors.

We’ll discuss the pros and cons that bookmakers may face by fully integrating Monzo.

Plus why I believe Monzo will dominate the digital payments space when it comes to depositing to bookmakers.

Our Verdict

FinTech Shake-Up

In recent years the financial sector has seen radical change, with a number of fintech start-ups looking to take on the oligarchical big banks at their own game.

And the rewards are enormous.

global non cash transactions 2018

According to the World Payments Report;

Total Global non-cash payment volumes reached 600 billion in 2018
E-wallet transactions surpassing 55 billion

Each of these transactions take micro-payments for the convenience of transferring the funds, the two biggest names being VISA and Mastercard which bring in tens of billions of dollars in revenue each year.

More recently, fintech companies such as PayPal, Square and Monzo have come onto the scene to take a slice of the financial payments pie, which will continue to grow 12% annually.

Monzo – Built for Mobile

Unlike more traditional financial institutes such as Barclays and HSBC, fintech companies such as Monzo are listening and adapting to consumer trends which are seeing demand in mobile/online payments.

In this year alone i’ve paid for more online services and goods using PayPal than in the previous five years, as it it provides greater convenience and enhanced security.

Which we’ll come to later on…

This trend is set to continue as more companies switch to digital services.

Mobile Betting Needs a Mobile Bank


So why Monzo?

What’s so special about this start-up tech company?

Well Monzo’s has first-mover-advantage in this space.

It’s the UK’s first digital payments service and online bank that is regulated by the FCA – a huge milestone for the company.

Not only can you pay for goods using Monzo’s mobile app, but you can also set-up an online current account and have access instant to your cash via a debit card.

OK so a debit card isn’t anything ground-breaking.

But unlike other e-wallet financial services like Neteller and PayPal, you can transfer any winnings directly to your Monzo account, allowing you instant access to your cash on mobile and through your cash card.

Monzo has also been built from the ground up, with mobile in mind.

So where big banks have created apps as an after thought using third-party companies, Monzo entire core business is it’s mobile app.

Which is why a recent report from Bloomfield states that Monzo has an NPS score (which tracks customer satisfaction) of 80, which is unusually high for a bank.

Which Bookmakers accept Monzo deposits?

The great news is they all do!

Monzo is accepted by all online bookmakers that accept debit cards as a method of payment. Simply enter your sort-code and account number during registration as you would do with any other bank.

Why Monzo is perfect for Sports Betting

Where I think Monzo will excel in the future is when bookmakers fully adopt the banking app onto their sportsbook platform.

In effect connecting both bookmaker and banking app seamlessly.

Why?

This would allow punters to quickly and safely top-up their balance using the Monzo app. The user would simply enter their Monzo password/ finger print and enter the amount they want to deposit.

No card details would be entered on the bookmakers site and within a couple of taps the money is transferred into your bookmaker account.

As discussed previously, any winnings can be instantly credited back to your Monzo bank account without having to login online and request a transfer, which is what you currently have to do with other ewallet platforms like PayPal and Neteller.

Finally, there are no fees with Monzo.

That’s right, unlike PayPal and Neteller that will charge you up to 3%, with Monzo there is no charge to transfer any winnings back to your account, all you will pay is your standard bookmaker commission rate.

Our Verdict

Fintech companies are changing the landscape of how we pay for goods and services online and on the highstreet.

Bookmakers will adapt to changes in trends and we’ve already seen this with the adoption of e-wallets such as PayPal.

In this next phase we’ll see fintech banks such as Monzo providing a simpler yet more secure way of transferring our money between accounts.

While I do not entirely endorse Monzo to be used as your main current account to handle all of your monthly transactions. I do think it’s useful as a holding account between your main bank and bookmaker.

This avoids you entering your main account card details online and thus significantly reduces the chances of you being hacked.

Alexa Betting Apps : Ask Alexa to place your next bet

Smart home devices have been around for a few years now.

While they were initially thought of as a bit of a gimick, Alexa can now do some pretty cool things; from delivering a Domino’s Pizza to ordering you next Uber!

So this got me thinking, could you place a bet using Alexa?

Is it even possible?

In this months Betting on Tech we’re going to discuss Alexa betting apps and how easy is it to place a bet with Amazon Alexa.

Nearly 50% of search terms will come from voice by 2020. 

We’ll also cover the latest sports betting apps you can download to your smart hub today.

Plus i’ll give you my two-cents as to why I think it’s inevitable we’ll be betting on Alexa much sooner than you think.

Shift to Voice Search

4 Catalysts to spark voice search betting
Will we place a bet using Alexa in the future?

The Short answer: No You Can’t

But as you’ll see later on, we’re on the cusp of a change in search preferences that will completely change we search for information in the future.

Shift to Voice Search

According to a recent article by Wordstream:

  • 50% of all searches will be involve voice by 2020.
  • 30% of searches by 2020 will not be done via a screen.
  • 15% of all US homes now have a home hub.

This was quite a surprise to me, as I would have expected the majority of search requests are still done using more traditional methods such as a keyboard interface and display.

There certainly appears to be a secular shift towards voice search but are industries ready for this titanic shift?

Alexa has Skills

So recently my wife very kindly gave me an Amazon Alexa as a birthday gift for reaching a milestone, that’s right I just turned 30.

In fact Amazon regularly has half-price offers on both Alexa and Echo Dot for those of you interested.

After searching the web to see what cool things my new smart home can do I came across the usual suspects, which i’m sure you’ve seen before. These include:

alexa betting apps
Morrisons app is a very convenient way to add groceries to your shopping trolley.

Anypod – Play your favourite podcasts
Big Sky – Provides up-to-date weather news
Philips Hue – Controls home lighting
Nest – Thermostat heating controller

Here’s a complete list of Alexa Skill apps currently available to download on Alexa.

Whilst this all sounds very Black Mirror having my entire home fully autonomous, I was more interested to see what betting skills Alexa had in it’s arsenal. And whether it’s possible to speak to Alexa to find odds for a particular game and place a bet.

No touch, just voice assisted from start to finish – That’s the challenge

Unsurprisingly my search was cut rather short as I couldn’t find any bookmaker with a voice assisted sportsbook app.

I guess we’re not quite there yet with the technology…

Betting Apps on Alexa

Whilst I couldn’t find a one-stop solution to betting with Alexa, here what I did find on Amazon’s Skills marketplace:

Paddy Power
Racing Results
Sky Sports
Basketball Odds
OLGB

Paddy Power had a daily flash news with some of the latest tips and odds of the day.

You say “Alexa, what’s my flash briefing?”

And it will give you the latest sports betting news from Paddy.

It’s hardly ground-breaking tech from the betting boffin’s at gave us money back specials!

Sky Sports app did pretty much the same thing providing you the latest news as text-to-speech.

Then there’s the Racing Results app which provides (you guessed it) racing results.

Even OLBG had a Horse Racing Tips app, but after listening to this you will still need another device to place the bet.

The only skill that came close to it was Basketball Odds which lists the latest 14 games along with the odds for each. But again this is just an automated script with no intelligence.

There was alot of garbage apps out there!

So i’ve comprised a list of the Best Alexa Betting Apps to raise your game.

If you get a chance give them a go and let me know what you think of them in the comments section below.

It seems like the sports betting industry isn’t ready for voice assisted betting…

4 Catalysts to spark voice search betting

After some rather disappointing results, here’s what I believe we need before an Alexa Betting app will enter the mainstream:

1. Tech Takeover

As with most secular trends, a young scrappy start-up company is more likely to change the betting landscape than one of the “old guard” bookmakers such as Betfair or Paddy Power.

Why?

Take online search as an example. It wasn’t Microsoft, Apple or even IBM that lead the way in online search engines with their huge cash pile and infinite resources available. It was Google that came out of the dorms of Stamford university by two young software engineers that to this day dominates the market.

Start-ups are more likely to take a risk and quickly pivot when they see trends or shifts in the market.

2. Visual Interface

place a bet using amazon alexa
Even Amazon realises some search terms still require a display and so have recently released the Echo Show.

I do believe that unless we have some sort of visual display to view the vast amount of odds available for a particular game, it’s going to be very difficult for voice search to gain traction.

Humans find it difficult to store more than several pieces of information at any one time. So if you’re bombarded with multiple odds via voice it’s near impossible to keep track of it all.

Some way of connecting to your TV (be it HDMI or over WIFI) that allows you to visually see and choose the odds just by speaking to Alexa.

More recently Google and Amazon have released smart home devices with a 7” built-in display. So now you can see the results from your query.

This could be the first step to making voice-assisted betting a reality.

3. Advanced Developer Code

You’re only as good as the tools you use and the main reason why Amazon Alexa has become so popular is down to the low-level source code libraries that makes recognising voice and regional dialects so good.

As Amazon continues to improve the core library code, the better the chances of a developer creating new an innovative ways for users to search for queries using voice and paying for services without having to find your debit card.

4. Secular Shift to Voice Control

Consumer trends and preferences will always dictate that way businesses pivot to new technologies. We’re already seeing a significant shift towards voice searches but industries have been slow to catch on.

In the next couple of years you will see more and more companies realise the potential of this ground breaking tech and begin to develop their own apps to improve their bottom-line.

Will we place a bet using Alexa in the future?

To be honest I think it’s entirely possible…

All the pieces are there. From a shift in consumer search preferences, to home hubs with the technology to either have a visual display included or to be connected to.

I think it will require a lot of creativity, and the layout for a voice-assisted betting site could look drastically different to what we’re currently used to today.

But given the current demand for voice search, it’s just a matter of time before we’ll be say “Hey Alexa, place a Paddy Power bet on Spurs winning today”.

XI Top-Class Football Players Out of Contract – Free Transfer 2019

players on free transfer 2019

You won’t believe which football players are out of contract and available on a free transfer.

We’ve selected the best XI players that you club could be signing this summer!

11. Dani Alves

There’s speculation that the right-back is eager to make a move to an “exciting” Premier League club before retirement.

But at 36 the former Brazilian international may not have the premier pick of clubs that he’s use to, having played most of his outstanding career with Barcelona and more recently at PSG.

Alves is currently in talk with PSG to extend his contract for a further 12 months, that is unless another European club comes in and offer him a better deal. But it’s unlikely any British club other than Manchester City, could afford the defenders current salary.

Here’s hoping he makes a move to the Prem!

10. Franck Ribery

Having won his ninth title with Bayern Munich and becoming the Bundesliga’s all-time record champion, we learned early this month that Ribéry would be leaving the club.

It’s unthinkable that a Champions League and FIFA World Cup winner could leave on a free transfer, but at 36 years-old it appears to be a mutual decision between the player and the club which allows the Frenchman to explore his options.

Even at 36, the Frenchman will not be short of offers and could be an interesting move for any club looking for an experienced world-class player.

9. Samir Nasri

Former Manchester City and Arsenal star will be keen to get his football career back on track following a 12 month ban from UEFA.

West Ham United gave Nasri a lifeline in the second half of this season, but the Frenchman has struggled to break into the first team on a regular basis, having only started in 5 Premier League games in the second half of the season.

With no other option but to move on, Nasri has the experience to perform at the highest level, but in this high-tempo modern era, chances of joining a top tier club look slim.

8. Yacine Brahimi

It’s unthinkable that Porto who themselves are in financial issues, have let Brahimi’s contract run down.

The Algerian winger has spent most of his professional career at Porto scoring 36 goals in 139 appearances.

Both Wolves and Everton were eager to sign Brahimi last summer for around £22million. Now that the 28 year-old winger is out of contract and shown an interest in moving to the Premier League, he won’t be short of offers.

7. Daniel Sturridge

The Liverpool forward has simply failed to impress this season and this time there’s no excuse.

Sturridge has had a decent run in 2018/19 making 20 appearances. But with only 4 goals to his tally (that’s 3 goals short of James Milner scorecard!) it’s unlikely that the striker will make the cut as Klopp will be keen to strengthen his side for a title push next season.

Having gone on loan to West Bromwich Albion in 2018 it’s unlikely that Sturridge will want to take a step down to the Championship. But at 31yrs and having played a full season injury-free he may be a decent signing for low-league club.

6. Arjen Robben

Since joining Bayern Munich from Real Madrid in 2009 for £22 million, the midfielder has won scored 147 goals in 338 games for the club, winning a staggering 8 Bundesliga titles in the process.

Before then the Dutchman had also won league titles with PSV, Chelsea and Real Madrid.

Even at 35 years old, given Robben’s work-rate there is still time left for the Dutchman to make a switch before hanging up his boots.

Leicester appear to be in the front-seat to sign the winger on a free transfer. Bookmakers now have him at odds of 2/1 to move to the King Power stadium.

5. James Milner

Some pundits have warned Liverpool would be crazy to let the defender go this summer, given how instrumental Milner has been taking the Merseyside club to within a point of the Premier League.

With two league titles under his belt at Manchester City and the prospect of lifting the Champions League trophy against Spurs on June 1st, Milner will not be short of offers.

But at 33 years old it may not be at one of the top flight clubs that he’s use to.

4. Gary Cahill

The Chelsea defender has recently slammed Maurizio Sarri for his treatment of the player, so it appears the door is firmly closed on his career at Chelsea.

Cahill is one of England’s most decorated center-backs, winning the Premier League twice for Chelsea and the Champions League and Europa Cup, as well as two FA Cup’s and a League Cup to boot.

West Ham United have already eyed a move for Cahill to join them ahead of the summer break. But given the quality of this player and even at 33, it’s likely Cahill will keep his options open and sign for a top European club in the summer.

3. Mario Balotelli

Famously remembered for his bust-up with Roberto Mancini at Manchester City in 2013, the striker had a successful spell at AC Milan, winning back to back titles three years on the trot.

Having spent the past three years at Nice and more recently Marseille, Balotelli has confirmed he will be leaving the French club this summer for new opportunities.

At just 28 the striker has the experience at top-flight clubs at a prime age. The Italian appears to be more disciplined and focused than the early years in his career.

But it may take a more charismatic manager to get the best out of the player, otherwise his personality could rattle the dressing room.

2. Antonio Valencia

Having spent most of his professional career at Manchester United since joining in 2009, Antonio Valencia has won countless trophies including the Premier League twice, FA Cup and Europa League.

Valenica may not have the best goal scoring ratio, having netted 17 goals in 241 games, but the winger has been crucial when United have been on the attack.

At 33 years old he may not have the pace for a winger to remain at the top flight of English football. But a mid-tier club could grab a bargain with a quality player of Valencia’s caliber.

1. Ander Herrera

The 29-year-old midfielder was an unsung hero for many Manchester United fans having joined the club back in 2014.

While the Spaniard never cemented a consistent role under Jose Mourinho, it was Solskjaer who gave the midfielder a second chance which had a huge impact to results early on.

With Manchester United still in transition Herrera has called time on his career at Old Trafford.

The Spaniard is currently in talk with PSG for a move which could see the midfielder earn a staggering £300,000 a week.

9 EPIC Movie Theme Slots we Just Can’t Stop Playing 2019

movie theme slots

I’m sure you’ve seen plenty of other movie online slots guide series before…

But our epic list of movie theme slots are games that we come back to time and time again.

Surprisingly there aren’t as many film slot titles as you would imagine and we were limited to around 30 titles.

But the ones we’ve chosen are the “best of the best” blockbuster films that ended up being awesome slot games.

So without wasting any more time, lets get straight into it!

Epic Movie Theme Slots 2019

9. Dark Knight

This second film in the trilogy of Christopher Nolan’s iconic remake sees Batman face his arch nemesis The Joker. With an outstanding performance from Heath Ledger, Batman fights his way through the dark seedy streets of Gotham City to stop the Joker’s sinister plans.

Microgaming have done an exceptional job bringing this masterpiece to life. With incredible animations that interact with the slots and epic cut scenes from the film, Dark Knight slot immerses you into this complex urban metropolis.

If your a fan of the trilogy you’re going to love this one. The only slight niggle I have is that the main soundtrack is quite repetitive. But I guess you can always turn the volume down and play the movie soundtrack on Spotify!

8. Jurassic Park

When scientist finally clone a dinosaur from fossil DNA, entrepreneur John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) decides to create a theme park with those cute cuddly little dinos on a remote island in the South Pacific. I mean what could go wrong!

The film has all-star cast, with San Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum, with a captivating soundtrack and directed by Steven Spielberg himself.

Even though the game a few years old now it’s really aged well, thanks to the incredible backdrop visuals and interactive dinosaur animations.

The base game T-Rex Alert Mode will constantly have you at the edge of your seat waiting for it to to drop and can add up to 35 wild reel spins.

Lookout for either 3 dinosaur eggs or amber balls to unlock the free spins and wild reel feature. There are 5 features in total which include: T-Rex, Velociraptor, Brachiosaurus, Triceratops and Dilophosaurus features, each with their own unique multipliers and bonuses.

The interactive animations are something else, from Dilophosaurus spitting on the reels, to the T-Rex bursting on-screen. If you’re a fan of the movie, you’ll get lost in this. You can enjoy all of the dino action on BGO.

7. Goonies Gone Wild

“Hey you Guys!”

Ask anyone who grew up during the 80’s what their favourite kids adventure films was and they’d say The Goonies. It had it all from underground caves, to hidden pirate ships and lost treasure and of course the “truffle shuffle”.

This slots game has a pirates adventure theme to it and is loaded with photo’s of the main cast and classic clips from the film.

Find 3 skeleton scatter symbols on the reels to unlock One-eyed Willy’s Prize wheel where you can win one of six bonus features which inlcudes: Fratelli’s Hideout, Super Sloth, Skeleton Organ, Goonies Gone Wild, Inferno and One-Eye Willy’s Treasure Bonus.

Goonies Gone Wild is a great way to rekindle your youth and have some fun while doing it. Get on-board at Dunder Casino for more adventure.

6. Highlander

With sword fighting immortals battling throughout history from the highlands of Scotland to the urban city of New York, it’s easy to see why Highlander became such a cult classic with fans.

You take on the role of Connor Mcloud and battle your way through time, taking the heads and harnessing the powers of your enemy until only one remains.

Microgaming have done a fantastic job bring this iconic film to life. While the game does not have jaw-dropping visuals compared to other titles, it does have some great bonus features and awesome classic rock soundtracks with incredible solo guitar rifts.

Keep a lookout for the Highlander logo which is also the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols in the game, apart from the scatter.

The game has two main bonus features; the first is a scatter feature which is activated when 2 scatter symbols are found. These then turn into wilds which unlock cash prizes.

If you find 3 or more scatter symbols, you unlock the New York theme and are given 10 free spins. This features also benefits from Quickening Wilds, were lightning can strike any reel during this feature and turn it into a wild reel.

Highlander Slots is available now on Casumo Casino.

5. Planet of the Apes

Taking it’s inspiration from the Rise and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, mankind faces a new threat of intelligent apes that look set to take over the earth and enslave humans.

You play as Caesar and work your way to become ape army leader. As you would expect from NetEnt the game is flawless, with stunning graphics and visuals including a nice bottom menu bar and outstanding symbol animations.

The game has an impressive dual reel option which can happen at any time and combines to make a huge 10 reel game, with 40 payout options available.

The real aim is to access the Rise or Dawn Free Spins Feature which is activated when 3 or more scatter symbols appear. During the free spins feature you can collect wilds which are added to your meter and other symbols which will trigger multipliers, extra free spins and wilds which can earn you up to 600 times your original stake.

There are so many features available that we can’t fit them all in, but we’re massive fans of this slot game and strongly recommend anyone to give it a try at Kaboo Casino.

4. Ted

Everyone’s hilariously, foul-mouthed and unpredictable teddy bear has finally got his own game. And they haven’t just taken the title and crammed in a few gag gifs from the film. Oh no, Ted online slots has been designed from the ground up.

The slots reel has a very classic look to it, which isn’t very exciting. But where Ted slots comes into it’s own is the bonus features which are truly incredible.

Ted’s Thunder Buddies Bonus is where all of the bonus-rounds are held and you can choose from a wide range, including: Big Money Bonus, S-Mart, Free Spins, Bar Crawl Bonus and Wheel of Fortune.

Ted’s S-Mart Bonus has to be my favourite, as you can earn up to 1000x your initial bet!

Then there’s Big Money Bonus round with some cracking multipliers, extra wilds and free spins. I like it as it’s more interactive as you progress higher up the pyramid to earn even bigger bonuses.

Throughout all of this you have Ted interacting during the bonus features and bringing the game to life. If you’re looking for a slots film that’s just fun to play, then this is perfect. You can join find Ted Online Slots at Cashimo Casino.

3. Dirty Dancing Slots

Whether you love the film or not, it was impossible not to be captivated by the highly sensual moves in Dirty Dancing.

While spending her final weeks of summer in a sleepy holiday resort in Catskill. Baby (Jennifer Garner) falls deeply for the resorts dance instructor Johnny (Patrick Swayze) who teaches her more than just dancing.

This slot game has a great mix of swinging 60’s music and dance scenes from the film, to really immerse yourself into this iconic musical.

Dirty Dancing slots captures the essence of the film with the exciting Mambo Bonus Wheel where players can win mambo modifiers such as extra free spins, 2x multipliers and dancing wilds on every free games spin.

Fall in love with Johnny in the Dirty Dancing Bonus round and win cash prizes. Help Baby collect three items to advance to the next bonus round and finish all six to trigger the main Dirty Dancing Jackpot round.

Will you pull off the final euphoric lift at the end? You can do the salsa at Leo Vegas.

 

2. Terminator 2

T2 maybe showing it’s age when it was first released in 2014, but back in the day this set the benchmark for all future movie themed slot games to follow.

A hacked Terminator (Arnold Swartzenegger) is sent back from the future to protect John Connor, a leader of the human resistance against Skynet and the machines. The Terminator must intercept and protect the boy before the shape shifting T-1000 finds and kills him.

The slot game has two interactive features which include the T-800 Vision feature, where you scan each of the slots to win cash prizes.

However the free spins feature is where the real big cash can be won, as there is up to 2950 times the value of your stake to be won.

I would play this for hours at Dazzle Casino so why not join them.

1. Halloween

As one of the most successful horror franchises of all time, Halloween introduced us to the independent slasher concept. This minimalistic masterpiece has aged incredibly well and I defy anyone have a good nights sleep after watching the looming ski-mask, knife wielding psychopath of Michael Myers.

Halloween online slots take you back to the original classic, set in-front of a 50’s style wooden porch and eerie soundtrack it really intensifies the sinister feel of the game.

With famous cast member symbols including Jamie Lee Curtis and John Pleasence, players can also find knives, clown masks, needles and gun symbols to make up winning lines.

The Halloween wild logo will replace all other symbols on that reel except the scatter.

When it come to bonus features, finding more than 3 scatter symbols will unlock the Trick or Treat Wheel. Spin the wheel and you can earn cash decent prizes up to ten times your original bet.

If you land on the Bogeyman feature you reveal multiplier cash winnings. Continue to find all 10 cash prizes and receive a further 20 times your original stake.

Finally if you find Michael you will receive half of the prize fund and end the Bogeyman feature.

Overall this is simple but fun to play if you can stand playing in the dark! Don’t have nightmares and enjoy this slasher horror at Paddy Power Casino.

GVC Calls for Complete Advertising Ban on Gambling

gvc calls for advertising ban on gambling

Ladbrokes and Coral owner GVC Holdings has taken an unusual step of urging all bookmakers to implement a total ban on advertising associated to gambling.

As well as a blanket ban on television advertising, the exclusion would also include any promotional banners during live matches and sponsorship deals.

Its been suggested that horse racing and greyhound racing would be excluded from such a ban.

The call from one of the biggest bookmakers in the UK extends the industry self imposed whistle-to-whistle ban on advertising before the watershed, which will begin in August for the start of the 2019/20 football season.

Following the announcement GVC’s chief executive Kenneth Alexander said he would do more to protect the vulnerable and will help tackle the issue of gambling related harm, he said;

“While the majority of our customers enjoy our products responsibly, it is time that the industry did more to protect its customers from potential harm – we at GVC are doing exactly that. I call on [the] industry to help us bring about an end to broadcast advertising which promotes sports betting in the UK no matter the time of day.”

“The industry should and can do more to protect the vulnerable, and today’s announcement demonstrates GVC Holdings commitment to deliver on that.”

The announcement today will see GVC products which include Ladbrokes and Coral advertising removed from

gvc advertising ban gambling
Ladbrokes currently has a number of sponsorship deals with football clubs and sporting events.

Tackling gambling related harm head on

GVC also lay out its own initiatives as part of their “Changing for the Bettor” campaign, which aims to promote safer gambling. This includes:

Safer gambling software

GamBan will be free to download and aimed at gamblers that are showing signs of addictive and problematic play.

New independent trust

The treatment trust will receive regular funding from GVC to treat and support problem gamblers. They aim to significantly increase the number of treatment centres in the UK.

Ban on shirt sponsorship and banners

This extends the whistle-to-whistle campaign by removing all shirt sponsorship and a complete ban on perimeter advertising banners around the pitch, so fans can enjoy sports events without any sports betting advertisements.

Further investment in research

Finally GVC are committed to “doubling-down” on investment in research and treatment in 2019 which currently stands at 0.2% of total UK gambling revenue. They aim to reach 1% by 2022.

Ulterior motives?

But some are questioning GVC’s motives for introducing a total advertising ban.

Some critics are suggesting that Ladbrokes and Coral‘s advertising footprint is just a tiny fraction compared to other leading bookmakers such as Betfair-Paddypower and Bet365.

Implementing an advertising and sponsorship ban would in effect level the playing field across the sports betting industry and could allow GVC to acquire new customers through aggressive promotions and competitive odds.

GVC Holdings and other bookmakers do not release information regarding total advertising costs for the year, so it’s difficult to confirm this.

But with brands such a Paddy Power and Bet365 dominating the English Premier League though sponsorship and advertising, it’s clear to see that both Ladbrokes and Coral would benefit from such a ban.

Ambitious targets or not enough?

GVC also have a goal of increasing their own investment in research (in particular behavioral analytics and intervention technology), education and treatment ten-fold by 2022.

It’s an ambitious statement of intent and the announcement this week may suggest that there are more punters out there that are affected by gambling than the figures suggest.

Removing gambling ads and sponsorship during matches has taken far too long for the Gambling Commission to introduce. But with tighter regulation and more fines being handed out, bookmakers are finally realising it’s ultimately their responsibility to ensure that vulnerable gamblers are not exploited.

Joshua v Miller called off after American fails drug test

With just over a month to go until Anthony Joshua heads state-side to face the formidable Jarrell Miller, the fight has been called-off after Miller failed a routine drugs test.

The American was supposed to face Joshua on 1st June at the iconic Madison Square Garden, but was denied a NY licence after a sample taken on 20th March was found to have an “adverse finding.”

The second sample showed traces of GW1516, a banned substance in boxing as it can enhance endurance and power.

Following the news Miller went onto Instagram and apologised to fans, admitting he “messed up”, he said;

“I messed up a big opportunity and I’m hurting on the inside. My heart is bleeding right now – I hurt my family, my friends, my team and my supporters.”

“But I am owning up to it. I’m going to deal with it and come back better and I’m humbled by the experience.”

It has also been reported that a human growth hormone which aids muscle build and workout recovery was also found during the second test.

Anthony Joshua who currently holds the WBO, WBA and British IBF heavyweight belts will now seek to find a replacement.

Some boxing names that have already been suggested include: Michael Hunter, Poland’s Adam Kownacki and Cuban Luis Ortiz. Eddie Hearn has said that a new opponent will be announced next week.

This will be Joshua’s debut fight in America in an attempt to promote the raise the profile of the British fighter before the possible face-off with Deontay Wilder later this year.

Wilder currently holds the WBC title, which is the last belt that Joshua needs to be classified as undisputed heavy-weight champion.
