Posted on January 05, 2021 by Dennis Hamming

Manchester United, one of the world’s most famous football clubs boasting more silverware than any other club in the United Kingdom and over history one of Europe’s elite teams, alongside only Barcelona FC, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. Whether you love them or hate them, week in week out they capture a large amount of viewers. With their never say die attitude (well, at least over Sir Alex Fergusons’ 25 years in charge) and high tempo football it’s been a very intense and exciting roller coaster ride for us all! 

Why are slots similar to watching Manchester United?

Watching Manchester United gets the heart beating, a buzz that you may find similar to that in playing slots. They are both built on the same fundamentals. A long, sometimes controversial history. Both were created at very similar times. Manchester United were founded in 1878 and were formally known as Newton Heath L&YR Football Club. The original slot machine was made in New York by Sittman and Pitt in 1891, although very different to the slot machines you find nowadays especially to slots available in an online casino but the concept was the same.

Making NCAA Basketball Predictions for Beginners 4

Posted on December 24, 2020 by Kumar Vishnu

Basketball can be serious business to a lot of people, and NCAAB (National Collegiate Athletic Association basketball) can be an extremely important part of college basketball for many fans. Even before games start, it is easy to focus on future NCAAB picks, and there is sometimes money to be made in making NCAAB basketball predictions of your own. But why do it, and what is it for?

Why should you make NCAA basketball predictions?

Predictions aren’t just a personal preference that you use to focus on a team that you like: they can be an important way of trying to identify possible upsets and underdogs and can really draw you into the experience. For some people, they are also a good way to make money, focusing on personal or ‘professional’ bets before the games have even begun.

Beginners and newcomers to the idea of predictions need to remember that there is no such thing as a “100% chance” of a particular result – there is a reason that upsets have become so popular, with many players actually hoping for them simply because of the drama and excitement that they can cause.

Gambling Strategy to Get Rich 0

Posted on October 24, 2020 by Eliasz Nowak

Not every bettor has the same level of ambition. Still, it’s rare to find someone that gambles without a desire to profit.

However, in reality, most people won’t get rich from gambling. Even generous bonuses like the 200 free spins by WooCasino can’t take you far alone. You’ll need a lot of luck to become one of the people who makes a killing playing casino games.

Today, our expert, whose profile you can overview here, Jacek Michałski, will examine how to make money gambling and suggest some helpful strategies. He lets us in on ways to maximize your chances, though.

Skip the Slots

The design of slot machines in land-based and online casinos serves to draw your attention, bombarding your senses. They’re exceptionally alluring, promoting megabucks and jackpots. 

It’s mostly a facade, though. In general, slots have the worst odds for the player of all casino games.

While the safest titles can fail you, the odds for winning a jackpot while spinning the reels are too low to rely on.

It’s completely okay to enjoy a bit of spinning action now and then. Realistically, though, depending on slots to grant you a massive profit is a recipe for disaster. Instead, focus on consistent, small wins, which brings us to our next point.
