Winneroo Casino Review | Champion of Value for Punters

Personally I’m a real advocate of keeping things simple. I want all of the features I’d expect from a casino site but designed with a quick and easy user interface. So when we finally got round to trying out Winneroo Casino this was the first thing that popped into my head.

Winneroo Casino is part of a well established market leader in the gaming industry, so you can be rest assured you’re playing with a leading brand. But enough about that, lets put on our surgeon scrubs and dissect this beast.

Winneroo Casino Bonus and Promotions

Up to 100 free spins Welcome Pack
Daily Free spins
Loyalty Points
Player Perks
Refer a Friend

To kick things off Winneroo casino have an epic bonus for all you money saving punters. For every £10 deposit you make you’ll receive 25 free spins and you can repeat this for each of the first 4x deposits. So you can earn up to a maximum of 100 free spins across your welcome pack.

What was slightly annoying was that new customers need to enter Winneroo bonus codes “ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR” for each of the four deposits for the bonuses to be applied. The codes maybe straight forward but it’s hardly beyond the wit of man to have this automatically applied.

Make sure you check the promotions page for the latest Winneroo deposit codes.

Winneroo does come with a few heavty caveats such as winnings are capped at £2.5 per deposit and are paid out in bonuses that must be wagered 40x before cashed out.

40x wager requirement is bordering on daylight robbery so you may need to seriously think about this before joining.

As always we stress that you make sure you read all of the terms and conditions before making a deposit.

Regular savvy players should also take advantage of Daily Spins which unlike some casino’s are available 24/7. Simply make a minimum deposit of £10 and use the code bleow for each day to get free spins for each of the slot game listed.

If that wasn’t enough with Player Perks regular depositors can get some serious cash bonuses. This includes 100% bonuses on both Tuesday and Friday, 5% monthly cashback up to £100, weekend and birthday free spins. As always check the t&c’s for more details.

This has to be the biggest refer-a-friend deal we’ve ever seen, as players can refer up to 15 players per month with a referral bonus of £10. This gives you up to £150 per month and there’s no stop limit to the number of friends you invite, so why not invite them all.

Games and Jackpots

With so many new titles and games at your disposal, why would you want to play anywhere else?

The site boasts up to 250+ titles in their catalogue but we could only find near to 100 slot titles which isn’t an exhustive list.

But winner did not let us down with some of the latest and greatest title that have just released including: Planet of the Apes and Finn and the Swirly Spin. Both use the latest ground-breaking graphics to give you the fully-immersive experience.

Winneroo Mobile Casino Features

Switch over to mobile and things get very interesting. The first thing you’ll notice is just how responsive the site is to touch tap and swipe commands, it works without breaking a sweat.

The top header menu system is so simple and easy to use even my Nan could use it.

I was slightly annoyed to see the contact/help link right at the bottom of the homepage but it’s a small blemish on a fantastic site.


We were incredibly impressed with how smooth every game ran, whether it’s on mobile or desktop. Even on more dated mobile devices (Samsung S6) the games worked flawlessly.

I found no jitter or lag while playing and even some of the newer titles that utilise HTML5 had no problems.

The site is fully responsive so even if you’re on a tablet device, the game you choose will adjust to your screen size so you can take your favourite game with you on the go.

Payment Methods & Withdrawals

Winneroo Mobile has a decent range of payment options to make your first deposit, which includes: VISA Credit/ Debit card, Mastercard, Neteller, Maestro, Ukash, PayPal and Paysafe card.

Withdrawal times were pretty standard with any banking transactions taking between 2-4 working days and more electronic transfers taking up to 2 working days. Which is fairly consistent across the board.

Our Verdict

It’s fair to say that Winneroo Casino have absolutely nailed it with this site. The theme design is smart and incredibly slick to use (especially on mobile), add to this some of the best regular player offers and bonuses and you’re onto a winner.

The only gripe has to be the higher than normal wagering requirements on your bonus, but don’t let that deter you as could simply skip the deal.

In all this has everything you could possibly want from a casino site and more, it’s a shame there’s just not enough time in the day.

Wenger confident Ozil and Sanchez will stay after Jan window

Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger believes Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil will remain at Arsenal after the January transfer window.

Sanchez joined Arsenal in 2014 from Barcelona and has been a key player in the squad since his arrival. The Chilean forward has scored a total of 56 goals in 113 appearances.

Mesut Ozil has equally been a strong influence to the squad, with the German midfielder contributing to 45 assists since his arrival in 2013.

Although both players had been temped by offers during the summer from the likes of Manchester City, Wenger did a decent job of retaining their services for another season.

When asked if either player will remain at the club after 2018, Wenger replied “I’m not the only, they have to decide on their future also.”

Midfielder Jack Wilshire’s future is also in doubt. The England international (25) has been hampered with a string to injures since he first joined the club almost a decade ago (2008).

Wilshire was also put on loan during 2016/2017 season after Wenger suggested that the midfielder was not guaranteed a regular place in the first-team. As a result Jack went on loan to Bournemouth.

Arsene has dampened any rumors of Wilshire’s departure during the transfer window saying “I will fight for him [Wilshire] to stay at Arsenal as he is a top quality player.”

Arsenal currently sit in fourth spot just one-point behind Spurs. While they have a strong squad at the moment, if Wenger were to let either player go in the January transfer window, it could have a serious knock-on effect of remaining in that position.

Abu Dhabi F1 Betting Tips 2017 | Have Ferrari and Red Bull caught up to Mercedes?

In our final Abu Dhabi F1 betting tips 2017 of the season we reflect on the Hamilton’s incredible second-season charge which put the Brit well ahead of Vettel for the title race. We also take a look at the performance improvements of Ferrari and Red Bull and whether both teams have genuinely caught up with Mercedes which could put the teams in a great position for a title charge next year.

Hamilton is a cut above the rest

So the F1 curtain is drawn as the season reaches it’s climax this weekend for the Abu Dhabi GP. The final race of the season is just as important as the first, as the winner will go into the winter break on a high and Hamilton will be keen to keep his momentum going into 2019.

After clinching the title in Mexico, the previous two race were disappointing by Lewis’ standards so he will be desperate to turn this around. Having said that it was truly a wonder to watch as he cut his way through the pack in Brazil to put himself in a points position just missing out on third place through worn tyres and running out of laps.

Botta’s bails-out in Brazil

I have to admit I’ve become quite frustrated with Hamilton’s team-mate Valtteri Bottas of recent. The Fin may have been flying during qualifying at Interlargos, but was quick to relinquish his position to Vettel into the first corner, to which Vettel then went on to win the race.

abu dhabi f1 betting tips 2017
Bottas was no match for the ruthlessness of Vettel.

Bottas may have tried to take the lead back, but the Fin does not seem to have the “killer instinct” that Lewis possesses. Valtteri did finish a respectable second, but given Hamilton was only 3 second behind him and started from last it’s hardly a ringing endorsement.

Felipe Massa who retires this year was pleased with his performance. The veteran Brazilian came home seventh after a great battle with Fernando Alonso who also had a decent race finishing eighth, Alonso was seen to applaud Felipe after the race.

Ricciardo pulls it back

Daniel Ricciardo also had a great race after starting 14th and recovering from an early collision which put him to the back of the field. The Aussie carved his way through the field to finish one place behind team mate Max Verstappen to pass the chequered flag in sixth.

So here we are on the 2017 final Grand Prix, with the championship over it’s down to kudos going into the winter that’s important. Last year it was a win for Lewis Hamilton and we think he will repeat it.

As we said before after Brazil and Mexico Lewis will do all he can to win this race. The Brit has nothing to prove as he is the 2017 champion and Mercedes now have the Constructors title. So it will only be pride for Hamilton, but he is a racer and will be fired up for this race.

1. Sebastian Vettel

Finally can we here at Betotg wish Felipe Massa a well earned retirement, a true gentleman on the F1 circuit always a pleasure to watch, hope to see him as a visitor to the circuits in the future.

Alan Pardew and Sam Allardyce in the running for West Brom job

Following the unfortunate sacking of Tony Pulis, West Bromwich Albion have said they are willing to take time to find a suitable replacement. West Brom made the decision to release Pulis as manager on Monday following a 4:0 beating at home to Chelsea.

Tony Pulis record at West Brom had been fairly decent with a win ration of 30%. But the team has seen a dramatic decline in results since the start of the season and up to the Chelsea match last Saturday, with The Baggies losing four out of the last five games.

West Brom are now just one point from the relegation zone, so while the board of Directors are keen not to rush in finding a new manager, time is of the essence.

Who’s in the race to be the next West Brom manager?

Since Pulis departure there been a list of potential candidates with Martin O’Neil, Alan Pardew, Nigel Pearson and Big Sam Allardyce in the line-up.

West Broms Chinese owner Lai and the chairman has made it clear that the board want a manager with Premier League experience, as the fight to stay out of the drop-zone will be extemely difficult. This would rule out Northern Ireland manager Martin O’Neil who hasn’t managed in the EPL since 2013 with Sunderland.

Could Pardew save The Baggies?

Pardew certainly has the experience to handle the pressures of a dog-fight at the bottom, but realistically what can he do that Pulis couldn’t? That said Alan Pardew does have a decent win ration of near to 40% for both Newcastle and Crystal Palace.

Nigel Pearson who was assistant to Bryson Robson till 2006 looks a contender but is currenlt with OH Leuven in the Belgian Second Division, so it looks less likely that this will materialise.

Baggies fans have put in their 2 cents over the role, suggesting that former Everton manager Ronald Koeman would be the best fit for the club. While the Dutchman would be a good fit, it may be early-doors for him to take another management role, given how his position with Everton ended.

Don’t forget Big Sam

So this leave Sam Allardyce who has been out of managerial work since the summer (May 2017) when he parted company with Crystal Palace. Big Sam definitely has the experience but has hinted in the past that his next role would only be at an international level and not with a club.

Gay Megson who returned to the club as assistant in the summer has been put in as temporary caretaker as The baggies face Spurs this weekend.

Joseph Parker given insulting offer to fight Joshua

Anthony Joshua’s aim of heavy-weight unification in 2018 hit a major hurdle this week, after Joseph Parker confirmed his camp has received an offer from Eddie Hearn – and it was insultingly low.

Joseph Parker is the current WBO champion and during a press conference last week the team suggested they would accept a 40:60 split in Joshua’s favour for a potential unification fight. But David Higgins who is Parker’s manager believes negotiations have already collapsed even before they have started.

Higgins confirmed he received an email from Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn and the offer was so low that he believes it must be be a joke. Higgins says:

“I got this weird email from Eddie, but he must have been hacked. He made the most ridiculously low offer. It could be the most insulting offer in boxing history.”

Given that the fight would unify yet another belt in the heavy-weight category, Higgins believe that a 40 percent was pretty reasonable.

But Higgins has hinted that Joseph Parker isn’t restricted to fighting AJ and has other options.

“They pay us 40 percent and no less or they fight Wilder, who will obviously win and then we’ll fight Wilder on a 50-50 split” once Wilder has all three belts.

Eddie Hearn may have his work cut out for him if Anthony Joshua wants a chance to unify all heavy-weight belts. Duco Events do not appear to be backing down and AJ’s team aren’t careful they could seriously supper any chances of this fight happening in 2018.

LeoVegas acquires Royal Panda for €120m | But is it a good deal?

leovegas acquires royal panda

LeoVegas looks set to acquire Royal Panda in a deal that could cost the Swedish gaming firm a massive €120 million. Currently both parties have entered into an agreement in principle.

As part of the contract Web Investments Limited, a Maltese company that owns the Royal Panda brand, would receive €60 million up front. The Maltese firm could potentially receive a further €60 million if the company makes total earnings of €50 million within 12 months following the acquisition.

An incredible coup by LeoVegas

To ensure LeoVegas is in a position to take advantage of future opportunities, LeoVegas Group has obtained a debt financing deal of €100 million. Of this €40 million will be reserved for a revolving credit facility. The deal is expected to be completed by 1st December 2017.

LeoVegas believes that Royal Panda’s brand works well with sports betting customers, following the recent introduction of their sportsbook. Royal Panda generates most of it’s earning from the UK market, which accounts for 50% of it’s revenue. Total earning grew by 63% from the previous year to a decent €9.8 million.

Gustaf Hagman, LeoVegas Group CEO was excited by the prospect “With the help of the strong symbolic value in the panda, the company has built a premium brand among gamer’s, and we will complement LeoVegas with Royal Panda.”

Following the aquisition LeoVegas group have re-adjusted it’s financial targets for 2018.

What does LeoVegas acquiring Royal Panda mean for punters?

Given the refinancing required to purchase Royal Panda, should reassure punters that LeoVegas is in a strong financial position.

It’s not completely unfeasible that the two firms could merge, but I think given LeoVegas demand for a brand that attracts sports customers, it’s unlikely we will see this happening any time soon.

Now that LeoVegas acquires Royal Panda and has the financial clout backing it. do not be surprised to see more purchases of big name casino sites going forward into 2018.

Eddie Hearn says Joshua v Wilder will happen in 2018

Anthony Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn has reassured boxing fans that negotiations for the unification fight are making good progress and a fight between Joshua and Deontay Wilder is likely to happen sometime in 2018.

Unification is on the cards

Joshua beat Wladimir Klitschko early this year to add the WBA title to his IBF belt. Wilder currently holds the WBC title and a fight between Joshua and Wilder would finally unify the belts, with the winner walking away with all three and regarded as the undisputed heavy-weight champion.

Wilder looks to be in incredible shape building up to this fight, following the American beating Bermane Stiverne in a one-round knockout last weekend in New York. This week Wilder appears to be ready to go to war with Joshua, claiming the Brit and his team around him are doing what they can to avoid fighting Wilder.

Hearn spoke to Sky Sports on now negotiations are progressing between both camps:

“Our job to deliver but it doesn’t happen overnight. We have to respect but we also need to do great business for Joshua. If we offered Wilder his true worth, the meeting would last two minutes.”

AJ want to be champ end of 2018

But Eddie Hearn has also hinted that AJ could face Joseph Parker before then. Parker is currently WBO champion and Joshua’s mission is to be the unified champion by the end of 2018.

In the meantime Tyson Fury who currently doesn’t hold a British boxing license has gone onto Twitter to goat Joshua and the Watford-born dream of becoming the undisputed champion.

Fury has publicly highlighted his lack of focus and desire after beating Klitschko, having “achieved everything I want”. Should AJ unify the belts we could see Fury come out of retirement for one last fight against Joshua.

Brazil F1 Betting Tips 2017 | Lewis proves he’s a cut above the rest

brazil f1 betting tips

What a fortnight it’s been for Lewis Hamilton and in this weeks Brazil F1 betting tips 2017 we review the events that lead Britain’s most successful F1 champion to his fourth title and look forward at the prospect of whether he can break all records in the future.

Lewis Hamilton left Mexico City the 2017 world drivers champion and given his recent performances in the second-half of the season it’s well deserved. It was a remarkable achievement for the British driver, as it looked at one point in that race that he may not even cross the line.

Nightmare start for Hamilton

The first corner off the grid saw young Max Verstappen take the lead from Sebastian Vettel but in doing so both drivers touched. This looked like a good opportunity for Lewis to take advantage but it was not a good move as it turned out. The Brit passed Vettel on the outside and it looked like it would stick, but Sebastian accidentally caught the rear tyre of Hamilton causing a puncture which saw him at the back of the field after a quick tyre change.

Max wiped the floor with everyone in Mexico City.

It left Hamilton struggling to catch the pack and only reached the last ten about lap 65, finally finished in ninth. Vettel fared a bit better to work his way through to fourth, but not enough to stop Lewis being crowned WDC for the fourth time.

Verstappen dominated up-front

The race winner Max Verstappen was in a race of his own. The Dutchman not only led the race from start to finish but did it in style and passed the chequered flag some 20 seconds ahead of the next best driver (Valtteri Bottas) and almost a minute ahead of Kimi Raikkonen.

We have been saying for a while Max will take the title soon and this races shows he has the right stuff. We think if Hamilton and Vettel had not collided Max would still have won. It was a pity that Hamilton was getting all the praise at the end of the race taking a bit of the shine off Verstappen’s triumph, but there will be plenty more days of praise for this young driver.

Not everyone at Red Bull was smiling

There was a few non finishers with the main one being Verstappen’s team mate Daniel Ricciardo. The Aussie only managed lap 5 which was a disappointment for him but he has had the best part of the luck during the start of this season and the tides appear to be turning on him. Daniel suffered a turbo failure, Marcus Ericsson lap 55 and Brendon Hartley lap 30 with engine trouble, and Nico Hulkenberg with power unit failure lap 24.

One good result was Fernando Alonso he finished the race 10th a great result for a driver who has rarely seen the end of a race in 2017.

The next race is in Brazil on 10 – 12th of November, with the constructors and championship titles complete it is just team points the drivers will be looking for. It can mean a lot of money to the teams, especially the smaller ones. So as far as winners go we here at Betotg think any of the top drivers will take this race, but it’s always worth that big money outside bet.

Max is currently on fire and certainly has the momentum, but in Brazil both Ferrari and Red Bull may suffer as this is a track that favours Mercedes raw speed over aero packages.

In 2018 we have a new and young British driver joining the paddock. At only 17 years of age British driver Lando Norris is joining McLaren, he comes from Glastonbury Somerset and will be reserve driver taking the place of Jenson Button.

He has come through the usual F1 steps (world karting champion and Formula three champion). The Brit will be driving in formula two as well as his place as McLaren reserve, good things are being said about him but only time will tell.

Moyes will relish huge challenge at West Ham

moyes signs west ham

It came as no surprise that no sooner had Slaven Bilic left the London Stadium, that David Moyes was poised to be the new manager at West Ham.

Slaven Bilic was released by West Ham on Monday following a humiliating 4:1 defeat to Liverpool on the weekend. It now puts the Hammers into the relegation zone for the first time this season.

Bilic’s position became untenable

Crack’s in Bilic’s management at the club began at the start of last season and the way the Payet situation was handled. In the end the Frenchman left the club in the January transfer window.

But not before he cause major discontent in the dressing room which affected results on the pitch. Since then the Hammers have been in a downward spiral despite the new signings in the summer.

Last chance saloon for Moyes

Moyes has been out-of-contract since the summer where he parted company with Sunderland, winning only 8 games in 43 matches, that’s just under a 19% win ratio.

It’s been a difficult ride for David Moyes ever since leaving Everton. His transition to Manchester United manager following Sir Alex Ferguson was never an easy option, but the Scotsman did have a better win record at United than in his previous club and than his successor Louis Van Gaal.

Moyes was all smiles during his first training session with the players.

Since then he had a torrid time at Real Sociedad with the fans on his back from the start and the recent departure at Sunderland. So this recent move back to a decent side in the Premier League really is the last chance for Moyes.

What do the Pundits make of Moyes at West Ham?

Former Hammers striker Dean Ashton made it loud and clear what Moyes faces at the London Stadium.

“As a player, David Moyes coming in wouldn’t inspire me. That is what’s going to be hard because he’s going to have to overcome that straight away.”

Moyes first game in charge of the Hammers will be away to Watford this Sunday 12th November.

Times they are a changing

There’s been a size-mik shift in the industry and the Gambling Commission is clamping down on sports betting and casino sites that look to take advantage of punters.

I think the days of eye-watering wagering requirements of up to 60x has come to an end and it’s likely you’ll see more and more casino sites following BGO’s lead. So what does this mean for the regular punter? Put it simply – great value gambling.
