Cheltenham Festival – Be part of the ‘Cheltenham roar’

Cheltenham Festival – Be part of the ‘Cheltenham roar’

The biggest horse racing festival in the sporting calendar is here! And Unibet will be offering odds on all of it!

The Cheltenham Festival is one of the most prestigious racing events in the UK, and run over four days, there is plenty of action to catch.  Starting on Tuesday 15th March, the men put on their finest suits, the women put on the grandest hats and head to the West of England and mingle amongst the royalty and the esteemed at the most magnificent of sporting events.

Without doubt the ‘jewel in Cheltenham’s crown’ – the Cheltenham Gold Cup is a major national event, and many would class it as unmissable.  Ran on the final day of the event, over 3 miles and 2½ furlongs (5,331 metres) and consisting of twenty-two fences, there is plenty of time for drama – and in the Gold Cup, drama is usually guaranteed.  Previous races have seen an odds on favourite in Kauto Star fall four jumps from home, Norton’s Coin who was a 100.00 outsider shock the market in 1990, and the UK’s favourite grey horse, Desert Orchid breaking a 66 year hoodoo to become the first grey to win the event.

This year is the year of the old guns. The current holder, Long Run is the odds on favourite and odds of 2.75 at Unibet, whereas Kauto Star, who is acclaimed to be the greatest British racehorse of all time can be backed at 5.00 as he returns to try and find his 2007-2009 form where he triumphed twice. However, there are doubts about Kauto Star’s form, and he is currently ‘50/50’ to start the race according to his trainer.

“The public feel a great affiliation with these horses as they watch them battle year in year out” says Erik Backlund, Head of Unibet’s Sportsbook.

“It’s great for the sport that these rivalries continue to occur, and with Unibet you can back your favourite and who knows, come Friday evening the country may have a new horsing hero.”

Other possible options for the race are Burton Port and Grands Crus at 10.00, both performing favourably in the market and Time for Rupert at 80.00, who can try and emulate the exploits of Norton’s Coin as the rank outsider.

On the opening Tuesday it is one of the punter’s favourite events, the Champion Hurdle, and the 2010 and 2011 winners dominate the betting, with 2011 winner Hurricane Fly a massive favourite at 1.90 and 2010 winner Binocular available at 6.00.  On the Wednesday people gather to watch the race named after the late, but great, Queen Mother and again the past two winners control the market, Big Zeb, who won in 2010 available at 5.50 but easily outbacked by last year’s winner, Sizing Europe at 1.90.

Unibet also offer markets on best jockey and best trainer, with stalwarts of the industry Ruby Walsh (1.67) and Barry Geraghty (4.50) the favourites to win the best jockey crown and Willie Mullins (2.25) and Nickie Henderson (3.50) the best placed for the trainers crown.

“I think that 15 time champion jockey and 2010 Sports Personality of the Year Tony McCoy is another public favourite and would be an interesting bet at 12.00.” says Erik.

Unibet have Ante Post prices online for every race from Cheltenham Festival and offer Place markets on all the top races. Unibet offer UK Horse Racing prices throughout the year on all the top Group 1 and Grade 1 action, as well as Horse Racing markets in France and Sweden. It is the place to be for some of the most competitive Horse Racing odds on the market.

Super Bowl 2012

The 46th Super Bowl in the history of the NFL are between the New England Patriots and the New York Giants over. Both teams are in the 42 match in the history of football. The game starts at 06 February 2012 00:30 Central European time on. This time the Super Bowl is held in Indianapolis. Some will be smaller than the last Super Bowl in Arilington, Texas. So there will be no new attendance record. Nevertheless, there are still some what interested in sports bettor. Tipico offers some interesting bets. Of course you can bet on the outcome of the game. Who will be the winner? A draw is not in football. So it’s a nice 2-way bet. You can also play a handicap bet, here the New York Giants start at Tipico with a lead of 2.5 points. In addition, also available over / under bet. Get both teams more than 53.5 points? If you want more than 3 bet options for Super Bowl, have a look at:bet365. An interesting bet seems to me to be the bet which team gets first 10 points, or a is a touchdown with the distance traveled is more than 48Yards. As you can see it’s worth the offers of the bookmaker and with such a big event to compare. Interestingly, it might be to put Boylesports on the outcome of the game and having to use the 100 € new customer bonus. For special bets, I propose to take advantage of Bet365.
My personal favorite is this year’s New York Giants.

I wish you much fun with the Super Bowl, who wants to see him live, just stay up really late at night and watch.

Ein Jackpot kommt selten allein

Ein Jackpot kommt selten allein

Die Gemeinde der Online Wetten, Online Games bzw. generell der Glücksspiel-Begeisterten ist beinahe unüberschaubar. Fast jeder der (zumindest ein Mindestmaß an) Interesse für die Welt des Glücksspiels hegt, hat schon einmal ein Online Casino betreten und dort um einen (wenn auch nur kleinen) Geldbetrag gezockt.

Doch die allerwenigsten dieser glücksuchenden Spieler haben in Ihrem Leben bzw. ihrer „Glücksspielkarriere“ schon einmal einen Jackpot geknackt. Umso höher ist die Freude, wenn einem dieses seltene Ereignis wiederfährt.

Eine Spielerin des Maple Online Casino konnte kaum ihren Augen trauen, als die Software ihr beim Spiel „Cash Splash Slot“ den Gewinn des Jackpots, und damit einen Geldbetrag von ca. 22.000 Euro, ausweist. Und als wäre der Gewinn EINES Jackpots noch nicht genug, leuchteten im selben Online Casino nur vier Tage später erneut die Gewinnsymbole für die Dame auf, und damit wohl auch Ihre Augen.

Nach Gewinn des ersten Jackpots hörte Sie nicht etwa auf zu Spielen, sondern nützte ihr erspieltes Geld um damit bei „Wow Pot“ erneut ihr Glück zu versuchen. Und siehe da: Auch diesmal war ihr die Glücksfee hold und bescherte ihr nach nur 4 Tagen erneut einen Jackpot, diesmal in der Höhe von knapp 10.000 Euro.

Gesamt kann sich die Kanadierin nun also über eine Summe von 32.000 Euro freuen, das ist immerhin ein ansehnlicher Neuwagen.

Wofür die Dame das Geld allerdings verwenden wird ist nicht bekannt, die Vermutung liegt aber nahe, dass sie auch weiterhin im Online Casino ihr Glück versuchen wird.

Nachdem Sie – was die Auswahl der Spiele betrifft –sehr flexibel ist, könnte die Wahl diesmal auch auf Online Wetten oder ähnliches fallen.

Hier ist zwar auch Wissen und Erfahrung gefordert, doch das wird der Dame, die offensichtlich das Glück für sich gepachtet hat, wohl herzlich egal sein.

Generell kann in letzter Zeit beobachtet werden, dass die Zahl der ausgespielten Jackpots rasant ansteigt. Dies hat auch ein erhöhtes Interesse und eine erhöhte Partizipation der glücksspielbegeisterten Spieler zur Folge, und das freut natürlich wiederum die Online Casinos.

Bet ABC AHCAsian Handicap Bets

Bet ABC AHCAsian Handicap Bets

Asian Handicaps are mostly Football Prediction bets, whereby one of the opposing parties starts their face-off with a handicap. The term has gained a lot of popularity over the last few years. The specialty of the Asian Handicap lies in the fact that unlike to ’normal‘ Handicap Bets in case of a possible draw you’ll get your stake refunded.
Contrary to the usual handicap bets the range here differs from one quarter goal to several goals. Those can vary from half or third to even quarter goals.

The term Asian Handicap is ordinarily used for Football Prediction betting systems but is sometimes used in other sports as well. It was originated by a journalist named Joe Saumarez Smith. In November 1998 the Indonesian bookmaker Joe Phan asked him to translate this Result Prediction method formerly known as ‚hang cheng betting‘ by bookmakers in Asia.

Basically Asian Handicaps cut both ways for bookmakers. The upside is the fact that the risk for bookmakers minimizes because trading with the party is simplified and the amount of wagering can be balanced on each side of the match. This gives bookmakers the chance to take bigger positions on major matches.
The downside with this particular Result Prediction gamble lies for bookmakers within the lower margin offerings. Those do not contribute such significant profits as for example the 1X2 system does.

A lot of the matches stand with a handicap of one half (½ ) or even a quarter (¼ ) intervals, while a quarter bet is the most difficult. Nevertheless in both cases a push is not an option, because a half-goal can not be scored.

In a quarter handicap bet the wager will be split into the next two quarter intervals. If the wagerer bets on Team A ¼ and loses his bet the whole wager is lost. If the match ends in a draw, half the bet is seen as won and the wagerer gets back half his stake multiplied with the given rate. If he wins his bet the wagerer will get his stake refunded multiplied with the given rate.

A ½ Asian Handicap on the home team for instance is just the same as a DC1/0 bet which is described in this encyclopedia as well. On top of that the full Asian bet is almost the same as the ½ Asian Handicap. With the 0 Asian Handicap the wagerer gets back his full stake in case of a draw.

1X2 Bets and Double Chance Bets

1X2 Bets

It is common in Europe in Football Prediction Bets to write the home team first, this is in stark contrast to the american habit of writing the home team last. In a european 1X2 Football Prediction Bet the 1 stands for a victory of the home team, the X stands for a tie and the 2 stands for a victory of the visiting team. The result prediction is only given for one of the three options.
If the customer is using different betting systems it is adviseable to look closely which denomination is used, the american or the european way of 1X2 bets.
On this website the Euopean Standard is used.

A few examples.
The customer wants to bet that the home team is winning. He therefor bets on 1.
The customer predicts that it will be a tie. He therefor bets on X.
The customer predicts that the visiting team will win. He therefor bets on 2.
A loss occurs if any of the other two possibilities occurs.

Double Chance Bets

This betting system has a lower payout rate but a higher chance of winning than the 1X2 Football Prediction system. The result prediction in this system is given for two of the three possible instances (1 for a win of the home team, X for a tie and 2 for a win of the visiting team in the european denomination). For example of a result prediction the customer wants to bet on „The home team will win OR it will be a tie“. In the 1X2 betting system the customer can only bet on one possibility of the two choices.
In the Double Chance Bet system the customer can bet on both results at the same time. A loss only occurs if the third chance is picked.

A few examples.
The customer predicts that the home team will win or it will be a tie. He therefor bets on 1X. A loss occurs on a victory of the visiting team.
The customer predicts that the foreign team will win or it will be a tie. He therefor bets on X2. A loss occurs on the victory of the home team.
The customer predicts that the home or the foreign team will win. He therefor bets on 12. A loss occurs on a tie.
