Why Have Online Casinos Become The Foremost Choice Of Masses

Posted on December 02, 2019 by John Harris

Online wagering has immensely put up with the gaming field, especially in recent years. It offers excellent opportunities for every interested player to place their gamble. Nonetheless, advanced technology has highly contributed to its expansion among all age groups, mainly the youth.

No doubt, online casinos are no less than the land-based casinos. Earlier where the real casinos were chiefly under the charge of the professional wagerers, online platforms like 10CRIC Casino came up with services to all watchword. Moreover, here are some more reasons as to why online casinos are trending in the digital era.

Wide variety of games

The best part about heading to an online casino is that it provides you with various games, all in one place. No other land-based casino comes up with this trait and hence, only allows you to wager on a fixed number of games.

The game variation plays a significant facet in enticing the players towards their favorite game. However, you can also try on with the new games that you come across and find worth betting on.

Posted on December 01, 2019 by Denis Morris

We are all aware that exercise is essential in daily life. However, not all of us are aware of the seriousness of this exercise to a student.

The Ultimate Guide to Tailgating at a Football Game

Posted on November 26, 2019 by Scott Huntington

You can throw a tailgate party at home. Still, there’s nothing like the experience of cooking food and enjoying company in the lot outside the stadium. Revelers cook up burgers and hot dogs, sip on ice-cold drinks. In the meantime, the team warms up before they hit the field.

Tailgating originated at Yale — an ivy league university in Connecticut — back in 1906. By 1914, thousands would show up in black automobiles to celebrate the Harvard vs. Yale football game. They also brought food. Today, tailgating is a long-honored tradition in sports stadiums across the country. 

Are you ready to tailgate this football season? Ready the ultimate guide below.

Schedule a Reservation

If you’re lucky, you’ll show up on game day and find a parking space. However, you’ll miss out on prime real estate. Most stadiums offer tailgating slot reservations before the game. 

Book a spot before they all disappear. Depending on the stadium, reservations will cost anywhere from $5 to $2. The small fee leads to a guaranteed place to party before the game. 

Plan the Seating

No one wants to sit in the truck while you’re cooking and drinking brews. Be sure to bring plenty of seating options, like foldable camp chairs. Look for seats with built-in cup holders and pockets, allowing you to keep track of all your tailgate necessities. 

With lots of chairs, everyone can gather around the grill to stay warm. Once ready, you can all eat some tasty food. 

Cook Tasty Food

Tasty food is the foundation of a successful tailgate party. Working out of the back of your truck might limit what you can serve. Still, you can expand beyond cold hot dogs and Cheese Whiz. 

Break out a portable wood pellet barbecue grill and cook up your favorites. These grills are ideal for tailgates because you don’t have to keep an eye on them. Instead, when you’re done cooking, simply shut it off. As a bonus, wood smoke always tastes better than propane or charcoal.

Bring Some Entertainment

Tailgating is an excellent way to connect with fans and have fun before the game. However, the day starts early, and there’s lots of waiting involved.  

Bring alone entertainment for you and your guests. Consider some board games or handheld gaming devices. Maybe a football to throw around the parking lot. If you choose to play, stay clear of the grill to prevent injuries. 

Blast the Music 

What’s a tailgate party without music?  Hook up your phone to a Bluetooth speaker or your truck’s sound system. Create a playlist of your favorite tunes or use one that’s floating around the internet.

Play some of the top-rated songs of the year, like “I Got You (Always and Forever)” by Chance the Rapper or “Seventeen” by Sharon Van Etten. Focus on good-vibe, high-energy songs that encourage dancing.

Planning a Tailgate Party? Have a Blast!

Now that you know what you to do, pack up your truck and head to the stadium! 

Tailgate culture guarantees a day of tasty food, excellent company and epic entertainment. Have a blast! 

Discover The Amazing Advantages Of Live Betting

Posted on November 25, 2019 by Alex Witt

The internet has changed lives in more than one way. Beyond just shopping and availing on-demand services online, you can also enjoy sports betting on the internet. Live betting is one of the most interesting aspects of online sports betting. As the name suggests, live betting allows you to place bets on a game or event even after it has started. When you place bets in real-time, you get the opportunity to maximize your profits as you know the current situation of the game. Here are the myriad advantages of live betting.

First-hand experience of the event
Essentially, sports’ betting is based on extensive knowledge and research of the game. You also need to gather facts, stats and trends about the sport, team, and players. However, sports are unpredictable and you cannot expect the outcomes to always work in your favor. But you can considerably avoid this situation with live betting because you bet on a game that is happening right in front of you. So you can watch the live-action and make informed decisions that are more likely to be accurate.

    • Earl Morrall: The Perfect Backup

      Earl Morrall

      In a career that started in 1956 and ended in 1976, the Sports Then and Now Vintage Athlete of the Month was never really a leading man, but he seemed to be part of the supporting cast for many huge moments in NFL history.

      The second overall pick in the 1956 NFL Draft out of Michigan State, Earl Morrall joined a San Francisco 49ers team that already included the famous “Million Dollar Backfield” of Y.A. Tittle, Hugh McElhenny, Joe Perry and John Henry Johnson.

      Morrall started four games during his rookie season, but just before the start of the 1957 season was traded along with guard Mike Sandusky to the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for linebacker Marv Matuszak and two first-round draft picks.
