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.

As well as this you also have a One-Eyed Willy’s Random Reel feature which is a collection of mini features that can be triggered at any time on any spin.

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.

888Poker Releases Much Anticipated Poker 8 Platform

poker 8 platform

When 888Poker came onto the scene they really were ahead of the game with impressive graphics and a decent user experience.

But in recent years they appear to have come of the gas…

During that time new players have entered the industry and taken their fair slice of 888’s market share, which has hit revenue and earnings for the company.

Having finally come to their senses, 888 has listened to customers complaints and have done a complete overhaul of their existing software with a new poker platform  – Poker 8.

888Poker have already introduced the first-phase of updates to their existing platform which will see improvements to quality of the table games, a new desktop layout, and enhanced graphics to improve user experience.

Here’s a sneek peek as to what to expect from Poker 8.

Following the news 888 Holdings Senior Vice President, Guy Cohen has excited to release Poker 8 to new customers, he said:

“We have worked with and listened to customers feedback and we’re thrilled with the initial roll out of our new Poker 8 platform, which includes a number of innovative features to make the 888Poker experience even more enjoyable.”

888 Hit Hard

Poker 8 could not have come sooner for 888 Holdings who have had a difficult couple of years.

According to their FY2018 Annual Report, 888 saw huge losses in revenue last year with the company earning $61M, a loss in revenue of almost -35% year on year.

And this is not an isolated case as the company attempts to quash any uncertainty about its future, as 888Poker was also down -15% in 2018 compared to the previous year.

Zynga takes a Bite

But it’s not just Pokerstars that’s gained significant ground on the ailing 888.

Mobile app Zynga Poker and high-street bookmakers such as Paddy Power and Bet365 have also muscled onto 888Poker’s turf and acquired long-term active players, by offering larger cash prize tournaments and enticing new and existing bonuses.

Finally Listening to Customers

From reading Google Play and App Store reviews it’s clear to see why 888Poker has fallen so far…

One user complained about the app being riddled with bugs from frequently crashing to being unable to login with a know and correct password.

These are not just UI problems but fundamental issues with the game that need addressing.

Another customer with a more balanced review complained that the platform was “written by gamers and not serious poker players” and “There are better platforms out there that provide a more authentic experience.”

Can Poker 8 turn it around?

It’s far too soon to tell if Poker 8 will have the sort of impact that 888 are praying for.
My gut says they will turn it around due to the sheer size of 888 and their presence in the online gambling industry.

But complacency on their side has come at a price and it will take many years for 888 Holdings to recover not only the loss in revenue but return to the same levels of high-quality active users it once had with 888poker.

188Bet Closes its Doors to UK & IRE Players – Now What?

Specialist bookmaker 188Bet has decided to cease operating in UK and IRE markets.

In a statement released on Wednesday, 188Bet stressed that the company remains financially solvent and will refund all customers with any pending bets or outstanding balances:

188Bet website with it’s shutdown notification.

“With effect from today 188BET.co.uk will cease providing gambling services to players located in Great Britain, the Channel Islands, Gibraltar and Ireland.”

“This is a commercial decision in a very competitive marketplace.”

“Annatar Limited is solvent and fully able to meet all its financial obligations which includes its customer funds that remain ring-fenced and safe.”

Punters with Balances Outstanding

Any existing 188Bet customers that still have funds in their account fear not!

You can still withdraw any outstanding balance by logging into your account and requesting a transfer into your bank account. But you must do this before 23:59 hrs (GMT+1) on 30 August 2019.

While 188Bet does not state what will happen to any outstanding funds after this date, it is prudent to ensure any remaining funds are withdrawn before this date.

Long Term Bets Pending

All pending single bets on all events will be honoured up to 23:59 hrs (GMT+1) on 30 June 2019. Any bets placed after this time will be null and void and the stake returned to the account within 48 hours.

Any multiple or accumulator bets will also be honoured up to the afore mentioned date stated.

For those with multiple selections bets with events that exceed 30th June 2019 will see those specific selections void and any winning events settled within 48 hours.

If you have any further queries regarding your account or any unsettled bets you can check out their FAQ page or contact them directly using the email

188Bet has said that they will “continue to operate as normal in all other jurisdictions.”

Where did it all go wrong?

188Bet burst onto the sports betting scene in 2006 with the prospect of providing customers with specialist in-play markets.

They were the first sports betting site to sponsor two Premier League clubs in Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic, and had a diverse sponsorship portfolio across all sports including rugby, cricket and golf.

But since then they have struggled to adapt in a highly competitive market, with new bookmakers muscling in and existing ones raising the bar with new and exciting features.

Should we be concerned?

This is now the second bookmaker to shutdown this year.

The news comes as the gambling industry faces some headwinds due to tighter regulation by the Gambling Commission. It forces bookmakers to comply with new guidelines and ensure third party affiliates are being monitored and comply with those guidlines.

Any breach of these new regulations will result in hefty fines which we’ve seen recently with Skybet and William Hill.

Gone for good?

Is this the last we’ll see of 188Bet in the UK and Irish betting market?

I don’t think so…

I believe the company will re-think their strategy in the UK and IRE and bring a fresh new product to market that is fully compliant with regulators.

It may take some time, but this isn’t the last we’ve seen of 188Bet.

Betvictor PriceItUp Builder| INSANELY Powerful Make Your Own Bet

They may be late to the party.

But BetVictor PriceItUp Builder has been worth the wait!

Here we’ll go through some of the key features that puts PriceItUp Builder head and shoulders above the rest.

We’ll also show you how to place your very first PriceItUp bet with screenshots to make it nice and simple.

What is PriceItUp Builder Bet?

BetVictor Priceitup is a tool that allows you to combine odds from multiple outcomes onto one single bet.

It’s effectively an same-game accumulator…

This gives you greater flexibility to create your own unique custom bet slip with mouth-watering odds if it pays off.

Where previously you would have placed individual odds for each of the outcomes, now you have the option to combine these odds to increase your winning potential.

For a brief introduction to this new tool, here’s BetVictor in their own words on how it works…

How to place a PriceItUp Builder Bet

Before we get carried away…

First thing you’ll need a BetVictor account.

Right now BetVictor have an incredible new offer for new customers to take advantage of

That’s a 600% bonus on your first deposit!

Simply bet £5 and you’ll receive 2x £10 free bets and a £10 exclusive casino bonus. All bonuses come with a 40x wager requirement and will expire within 7 days, so make sure you use them asap.

For this and all of their terms and conditions, refer to BetVictor T&C’s.

Now that you’ve signed up, we’re ready to place you first Priceitup bet builder.

BetVictor Priceitup Step-by-Step Guide

So the first thing you need to do is to log into your BetVictor account.

The layout for mobile and desktop varies slightly but in principle it’s the same. For this example we’re using the mobile platform.

Find the game you want to bet on by selecting Competitions on the top menu bar and scroll down to find the league/competition you’re interested in.

In this case we’ve selected the English Premier League and selected Tottenham v Manchester City

Now scroll down past the current markets and odds and you’ll see the New #PriceItUp Builder further down.

Tap on the Lets Try It button and you’ll move into the new custom screen where you’ll find hundreds of betting options for your chosen match.

You can add as many custom bets to your bet slip as you want, such as:

  • Match Result
  • Both Teams to Score
  • Player and Team Goals
  • Team Corners etc…

As you add each option to your bet slip, you’ll notice the total odds increase with each addition.

Once you’ve added all of the odds to your bet builder, enter your stake and hit the Place Bet.

You’ll now receive confirmation on the screen the bet has been placed, with a list of the bets you have placed.

You will also receive an email notification as receipt.

BetVictor Priceitup Key Terms:

  1. All bets relate to 90 min markets (unless explicitly stated).
  2. If any part of the best is void, the whole bet becomes void.
  3. BetVictor reserve the right to cancel any bets that are priced wrong.
  4. Max payout of £10k per customer on singles market and £100k on multiple markets.

For a complete list of terms and conditions, see the main BetVictor Price It Up Bet Builder page.

Our Verdict

BetVictor’s development team certainly know what they are doing.

The integration of BetVictor PriceItUp into their existing sportsbook platform is flawless, with a focus on enhancing the user experience with intuitive design, rather than carelessly bolting on a feature for the sake of it.

It’s clear to see that time has been taken to develop this new feature and it has paid off hugely.

I can’t wait to see what innovative product BetVictor comes up with next.
