Play your favourite sports… in the casino
With the football season all but over, many punters turn to the online gaming community and have fun playing their favourite sports in the casino, whiling away those long summer months until it all kicks off again in August.
For a lot of people it’s a chance to sample something fresh and different while also playing for win huge money prizes that could pay for match tickets and halt-time pies next season.
The Virtual Slot Games are usually a popular choice and Betfair’s World Cup Heroes 2 machine is the perfect way to stay entertained and get ready for next year’s tournament in Brazil.
The slot machine offers up to 25 lines and scores of payout combinations so you’re always in with a chance to win. Of course, the best icon to hit is Spain – being the world and European champions – which can pay out at 150/1 if you’re lucky, and England fans will be pleased to know Roy Hodgson’s men pay out greater than Argentina and Germany.
There are also bonuses to be won in World Cup Heroes 2 such as the Golden Whistle and the Gold Globe, which pays double what Spain does if you strike big, making virtual slot games a popular choice for punters.
If you’re a results predictor then there’s very little to do this summer other than play Final Score, a game that lets you choose the league and teams before placing bets on the outcome.
It’s interactive, quick and gripping action as you cheer on Newcastle United to nick a last-minute winner against Liverpool. A successful £10 bet on the result can pay out at 41/1 or more, while correctly predicting the score will earn you a neat 10/3 return.
So while the football season rests for another summer, why not check out what’s going on in the online gaming community – you may be surprised how soon August comes around.
