New online free bet portal,www.FreeBetNoDeposit.org has re-launched with a modern website design and fantastic offers for every type of player who loves to claim a Free Bet No Deposit!

Not only does the site offer a wide range of free bets from a number of online bookmakers such as Ladbrokes, and William Hill but they also have football match reports published within 24 hours after the game for every Barclays Premier League match to. Who plan to later in the year expand so they can report on every football match played in the world!

With a new owner now serious about putting the site to its full potential, he is certain it will meet every ones needs who are looking to place a bet. The new owner, Joe Write explains,

When I purchased the site a few months ago, I knew exactly what I wanted, I knew exactly what punters and people looking to place a bet wanted, I simply knew everything from day 1. It took a while to launch the site, but everything had to be perfect. What I hope is that players coming to the site, recognise the difference and effort I have made to give them the best free bets from only the best and most recognised bookmakers.

A lot of other free betting sites out there simply don’t bother with site design or which bookmakers they are advertising. Not me, I don’t want someone coming to my site and getting ripped off from an unknown bookmaker, all I want is for someone to enjoy the match they watch and enjoy the bet and return!

FreeBetNoDeposit.org specialises in free bets, a Free Bet No Deposit is a bet which is placed in to your account upon registration.

Soda Poker, A Whole New Way Of Enjoying Online Poker!

A new multilingual poker room has just been launched by one on the main online poker publishers with the intention of becoming an alternative to the current online poker monopoly.

POKER hit the web in the mid 00’s and has since never ceased to grow in popularity. But governments around the world have decided that now is the time to impose regulations on online gambling and as a result you may have noticed that playing poker with real money is getting tougher and tougher (especially if you are living in the US!).

In the mean time, playing poker with virtual chips on social networks has never been as trendy, fun and easy! Don’t deny it; even your mom and your little sister are on it… These so called social poker games owe their popularity to the fact that while being built around a game you usually find in a casino; because you can’t cash out your winnings, for legislators, it’s not gambling so you (and the companies running them) are alright with them.

Now the companies running these models are seriously considering adding cash out options once the game will be regulated, and the companies running real money poker rooms are looking at social poker games as a way of not only offering a different version of the game, but also penetrating virgin territories such as social networks or mobile devices.

It’s going to be a war of the worlds when these gaming giants collide, but undoubtedly poker players will come out as winners, as the competition will generate new products and new offers for the end users…

In the mist of it all, Cmedia, a company based on the Spanish coast of Barcelona has launched Soda Poker, a social poker room that aims to offer a serious alternative to other poker rooms.

The name Cmedia may not ring a bell, but if you have ever been on a website related to poker or any other form of online gambling, chances are you were on one of theirs: with over 1000 websites online, they are amongst the biggest online gambling publishers in the world… so you can trust they know what they are doing when it comes to online poker. They are the people behind Freepoker.org and Pokerholdem.com.

Soda Poker is easy because unlike any other Texas Holdem poker site you can register and play for free in just a few clicks. It’s quick, easy and simple. It gets you seated at the poker table in just a few seconds without asking you for your bank account details, or your grand mother’s maiden name. And it’s freemium, meaning that every day; you can come back and play without having to deposit real money. But if you want to play the higher stakes you can always buy into the premium model and get more chips allowing you to play at a higher level. Because players don’t actually bet with real money, Soda Poker is a totally risk free game, you can just play for the fun of the game! It’s really the closest you’ll get to playing a home game with your friends, and that’s why it’s one of the fastest growing social poker communities and one of the hottest places to be dealt cards on the web right now!

Half of Online Gambling Sites Licensed Outside UK ‘Safe’ Jurisdictions

The online gambling industry continues to expand with an estimated 5 million new player accounts being created each year, despite the risks that player’s face from unreliable sites.

Many regions such as Alderney, Malta and Gibraltar were approved for addition to the UK Gambling Commission’s ‘whitelist’. The purpose of the whitelist is to approve only the jurisdictions that have sufficient regulation in place to ensure player protection. Licenses from other regions are considered potentially unsafe for reasons such as lack of appropriate regulation, and not providing satisfactory mediation channels for resolving player complaints.

Only gambling sites with licenses issued by the whitelisted jurisdictions are allowed to advertise within the UK. While potentially risky sites in non-whitelisted regions may not advertise directly to UK citizens, they are still easily found through internet searches and online advertising.

An estimated 1,100 online gambling sites are operating with licenses issued from safe jurisdictions. At this time at least 900 gambling sites are operating with licenses from outside the UK whitelisted regions, while an even higher risk is associated with the many unregulated sites that hold no license and no system for player protection.

With thousands of online gambling sites available, finding the reliable operators becomes a challenge. Many players will fall for the tempting promotions being offered by less trustworthy sites, and a large number of player complaints are posted on online forums. Many times players deposit funds to a site and then later attempt to withdraw their winnings – only to have endless problems resulting in no payment being received. Sometimes operators claim to have technical or payment-processing problems causing repeated delays, while other times the player’s winnings are confiscated with little or no valid explanation.

Three recently launched sites aim to address this issue by reviewing only the most reliable online gambling sites, including only those with licenses in whitelisted jurisdictions.

www.Top20BingoReviews.co.uk – Bingo is increasingly popular online, with sites offering online chat so that players can keep the social experience of bingo even when playing at home.

www.Top20PokerReviews.co.uk – The rise of online poker continues as players take advantage of ‘freeroll’ tournaments as well as weekly tournaments with large guaranteed prize pools shared among the winners.

www.Top20Bookmakers.co.uk – Of course all the big UK bookmakers now have competent online operations to accept punter’s bets, with many offering free bets and money-back guarantees on certain events.

“Whether players are searching for bingo sites, poker rooms or online bookmakers, the problem remains the same – there are many shady operators with questionable ethics,” said Philip Jones, manager of UKZap.com

“Protecting players from these unscrupulous operators is the primary goal of our new sites, which aim to review only sites with valid licences and a history of player satisfaction, prompt payments and good customer support.”

In addition to reporting on the most reliable operators, these new review sites also help players to find operators with special features such as mobile playing options for iPhones, Blackberry and Android phones. Players will also find useful lists of sites accepting convenient deposit methods including Neteller and PayPal.

32Red Online Casino Short-Listed for Casino Operator of the Year 2009

32Red Online Casino has been announced as a nominee for eGaming Review’s Casino Operator of the Year award for 2009. This follows the success earlier in the year for the Gibraltar-based online casino when it was announced as the winner of Casinomeister’s Best Casino title for an unprecedented sixth consecutive year.

The award-winning gaming operator was delighted to hear the news from eGaming Review. Company CEO, Ed Ware, highlighted that this nomination was further vindication for the casino’s long-held philosophy that the player experience, transparency and support come first.

“We launched 32Red in 2002 and immediately set about changing preconceptions of the online gaming industry, setting up a framework where players enjoy top casino games, bonuses and a fair and honest playing environment. Our nomination demonstrates the importance of these qualities to the gaming industry and these are elements we plan to build on indefinitely.”

32Red’s candidacy follows a year of flux in the industry caused by the global economy, with 32Red adapting to the changing times positively through an extensive and ongoing television advertising campaign, as well as sponsoring the CocaCola Football League Championship side, Swansea City AFC. The result has been elevated recruitment figures (as released in Q1 results for 2009), lending Ware to add, “More and more players are enjoying what 32Red has to offer and we’re positive, that come the year end of year, we’ll be in a stronger position than ever”.

32Red Online Casino is a certified member of eCOGRA – gaming industry watchdog – which monitors payout percentages and the entire casino operation to ensure a fair experience for players. Additionally, 32Red are based and licensed in the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar – a widely respected gaming jurisdiction. Although UK facing, the online casino has an international player base, with multi-lingual and currency support available.

32Red Online Casino has announced that Australian players can now play in their home currency of Australian Dollars, further opening up the Australian market to 32Red’s award-winning casino service.

All players can now opt to play in Australian Dollars and enjoy the Best Casino award-winner’s many banking methods, including NETeller, Moneybookers and credit and debit card systems. As an official Barclays Merchant, Australian Dollar players can also be assured of quick and secure deposits and withdrawals at 32Red.

The Gibraltar-based online casino has a large international and Australian player base, despite being largely UK facing. Head of marketing for 32Red, Mark Quayle, said “With over 250 online pokies in our casino, as well as hundreds of other casino game classics, the addition of Australian Dollars was a natural development to our global growth.” Adding, “Our Australian players are attracted to our reputation for delivering top casino games and bonuses in a trusted playing environment. I’m sure the addition of their local currency will be welcomed.”

This news comes off the back of 32Red’s nomination for eGaming Review’s Casino Operator of the Year award for 2009, marking a good year all round for the casino having retained the Best Casino title in February, enjoyed unprecedented recruitment figures and a successful television advertising campaign.

32Red Plc CEO, Ed Ware, commented, “The introduction of Australian Dollars to our online casino shows 32Red’s commitment to all our players and is a measure of how we listen to their needs.” Ware added that player currency is an important factor in the company’s obligation to promote responsible gaming, “Allowing players to play in their home currency lends them an increased awareness of spend and budget, which is in line with our commitment to ensure players enjoy our casino responsibly.”

32Red Online Casino Reported Two Successive Jackpot Winners Over The Weekend Of The 9th October

The Gibraltar-based gaming firm reported that the two player’s winnings totalled nearly £80,000 from the online slot and video poker games.

The first jackpot was struck at the 32Red Online Casino, with the winning player spinning and winning on the Lots of Loot slot machine reels. The single jackpot triggering spin on the game’s 5 reels and 25 paylines meant the player, who lives in Germany, saw £31,663.05 enter her account immediately. The second jackpot win came just 13 hours later at 32Red’s sister casino, Dash, with the video poker machine, Jackpot Deuces. The resultant royal diamond flush hand landed the Canadian player £29,342.16.

32Red Online Casino’s Operations Director, Pat Harrison, commented: “We’re always delighted to see big jackpot winners at 32Red and to have two in short succession is great news. We’d like to further extend our congratulations to both the players here and wish them the best of luck at 32Red in the future.”

The news comes after one player at 32Red Online Casino won five Cash Splash jackpots in less than one year, prompting Harrison to add: “Jackpots are hit frequently, but after an unprecedented five jackpot wins in one year from one player and having already produced 2 online millionaires, and now this…I think we’re getting a reputation as the lucky online casino.”

Progressive jackpot games are variants of big casino game favourites. They operate as normal and can be played instantly by those familiar with them, but each is connected to jackpots that grow as the games are played. They continue to build and are unlimited until triggered by certain winning combinations or certain successive wins, at which point the jackpots are reset to a guaranteed minimum amount. Lots a Loot now has a £13,000+ jackpot while Jackpot Deuces boasts a £27,000+ prize.

Both 32Red Online Casino and Dash Casino have 15 progressive jackpot games available to play, including the record-breaking Mega Moolah, which earlier in the year saw one player win a record £6 million. Currently just over £1 million can be won from the world’s biggest slot jackpot.

Free Lottery Checker Tool

Lottery.co.uk, the most popular independent lottery web site in the UK, has launched a brand new Lottery Checker tool that enables players to check their tickets faster and more conveniently than ever before. Since the launch of the National Lottery in the UK in 1994, players have missed out on prizes worth millions of pounds by failing to meet the 180 days claim deadline, and it is hoped that the new Lottery Checker will help to reduce the number of unclaimed prizes in the future.

The new Lottery Checker tool is easy to use because it presents the player with a new visual interface that shows the lottery numbers 1 to 49. The player simply clicks on the six numbers that they would like to check and once more on a Check My Ticket button. A new screen then appears that shows the player exactly how many of their numbers have been matched in previous draws.

The most recent draw is displayed first, but the player can scroll down to see the lottery results for the last six months. Results are limited to the last six months because winning tickets for lottery draws that took place before that will no longer be valid for claims purposes. Any winning draw is highlighted so the player can quickly identify the size of prize that has been won.

Many lottery players are in the habit of entering the same set of numbers repeatedly, and to make life even easier for those players, Lottery.co.uk offers a free Automatic Ticket Checker service. This allows players to enter any set of numbers that they want to keep track of (or several sets of numbers if they play several tickets) and provides access to a customised results screen whenever they log into the free service. Once the initial settings have been saved, this Automatic Ticket Checker makes it possible to check several dozen tickets in just as little time as it takes to check one.

In addition to the main checker for the Lotto game, there are similar Lottery Checker tools at Lottery.co.uk for those who play the EuroMillions, Thunderball or Daily Play games. These work in exactly the same way as the main checker, and allow all lottery players in the UK to benefit from the free Lottery Checker service no matter which game they play.

Sam Weren, spokesman for Lottery.co.uk said: “The number of lottery players who miss out on prizes every year is staggering, so if our new Lottery Checker tool and Automatic Ticket Checker service helps to lower that figure by even a handful, it will have been well worth introducing. The ability to check not just one line but multiple sets of numbers will obviously be of use to individual lottery players, but it also makes the Lottery Checker an indispensible tool for lottery syndicates as well.”

The Lottery Checker tool and Automatic Ticket Checker service are both live at Lottery.co.uk and are provided free of charge for anyone who wants to use them.

32Red Online Casino Reveals That A Lucky Swansea City FC Fan And 32Red Player Will Be Joining His Favourite Team For The Season

Sporting the official number 32 shirt of the South Wales club, the fan will be able to get close up and personal with the squad throughout the 2009/10 season.

32Red Online Casino became Swansea City FC club sponsor in a two year deal in May. The partnership sees the 32Red.com logo displayed prominently on the Swan’s home and away shirts as well becoming the club’s official gaming partner, offering over 350 casino games in their online casino, online poker, bingo and more to Swansea fans.

Ross Mitchell, the 32Red winner and die-hard Swansea fan, said, “Most fans have dreamt of seeing their name in the matchday programme, and given my lack of footballing ability this is the only way I could have got to do it. The entire competition is a terrific idea and I hope others get a chance to experience what I have, thank you Swansea City, and thank you 32Red.com”.

Ross will be in the official team photograph for the 2009/10 season, will feature in the squad list in matchday programmes and be involved in a range of team activities, becoming an integral part of the Swansea FC team this season.

Swansea City FC vice-chairman, Leigh Dineen, said: “This is the first of a number of initiatives we will be working on with our new sponsor 32Red this season.

“They have given us fantastic support so far and I know that they want to involve the fans as much as possible.

“Ross attended our game against Sheffield United recently where he was given the full VIP treatment. Manager Paulo Sousa presented him with his No.32 shirt and had a good chat with Ross. With the amount of injuries we’ve got at the moment, he may have to wear the shirt on the pitch soon”

Mark Quayle, Head of Marketing for 32Red Online Casino, remarked: “This is just the first of many competitions we plan to run with Swansea to celebrate our partnership with this proud and progressive club. Football is becoming increasingly commercial but both Swansea and 32Red know the priority lies with the fans. We both plan to ensure these next two years are as exciting and as special as possible for them.”

Ross saw the competition on the official Swans website and “felt it was too good an opportunity to miss out on. I enjoy playing a bit of blackjack and so the chance to become the number 32 for the Swans was just too tempting, so I went through the official site and registered at 32Red’s online casino and got playing. But he was taken by surprise when he returned a call from the club to star as the team’s number 32.”

New Lottery Statistics For EuroMillions Players By Lottery.co.uk

Lottery.co.uk, the UK’s most popular independent lottery web site, has announced the introduction of new statistics features which will be of use to any lottery player who like to take previous numbers into consideration when making their selections. The Lottery.co.uk website has always had a free Lottery Statistics page for the main Lotto game, but now a separate EuroMillions Statistics page has been added. The original Lottery Statistics page has also been overhauled to provide even better coverage.

The new EuroMillions Statistics page is divided into four main sections. The first is a Winning Numbers Table that tells the reader exactly how many times each of the 50 main numbers and 2 Lucky Star numbers have been drawn since the EuroMillions game was launched in 2004. The next three sections extract useful information f r o m that main table to provide the player with the winning numbers that have been drawn most often, those that are most ‘overdue’ to be drawn, and those that have been drawn least often.

The overhauled Lottery Statistics page provides a similar collection of data, and features a main Lotto Number Frequency Table as well as tables that highlight the numbers that have been drawn most often, least often and those that are most ‘overdue’ to be drawn. In addition, Lotto players are presented with a table that shows how many times the various lottery machines and ball sets have been used.

Although the odds of winning a lottery game are always the same no matter how a player picks their numbers, many players like to refer to statistics before making their selections. Some players like to follow ‘hot’ numbers that have been drawn more often than the average. Other players like to do the opposite and follow ‘cold’ numbers that have been drawn less often than average. And still others like to identify the numbers that haven’t been drawn for quite some time. The Statistics pages at Lottery.co.uk allow players to do all of this, and a whole lot more, with ease.

One Of The Longest Lucky Streaks Of All Time – One Player Hits The Same Jackpot Five Times In Under One Year

The 32Red player’s fifth five figure jackpot win has already hit his bank account – something the player must be getting used to – with 32Red having paid-out over £100,000 to the lucky player since October 2008 when the streak began. Before the end of 2008 the player had already made it four wins from the Cash Splash progressive slot machine and now, with the jackpot win on the 12th September, five have been chalked up and with some time still to spare to make it six.

Pat Harrison, Operations Director for 32Red Online Casino, commented, “We’re amazed and thrilled for our player. We regularly have large jackpot winners at 32Red, but it’s unusual for one player to have five big wins within a year at the same online casino. It’s truly extraordinary. All of us at 32Red are keeping our fingers crossed that the player will go on and make it six and smash his own record for jackpot wins.”

Cash Splash is just one of 16 progressive casino games at 32Red Online Casino and comes in the classic 3 reel and the more modern 5 reel format. The jackpot builds as the game is played, so it’s growing all the time. Having just been won, the jackpot has been reset to a healthy £15,000, and will be building nicely as 32Red’s lucky player spins the Cash Splash reels for yet another jackpot win.

This win comes as 32Red announce the arrival of a new addition to the popular Mega Moolah range of slots: Mega Moolah Isis. This game, like all Mega Moolah games, includes the world’s biggest progressive online jackpot – a guaranteed £1,000,000. However, in the past it has grown to as much as £6,200,000 before being won…

A Bumper Level Of Interest In The EuroMillions Mega Jackpot Draw Is Anticipated

Lottery.co.uk, an independent web site dedicated to the UK National Lottery, is anticipating a bumper level of interest in the EuroMillions Mega Jackpot draw that takes place this Friday 18 September, 2009. The Mega Jackpot will be worth around £85 million, and that fact – combined with the current economic climate and the ‘end of summer blues’ that many people experience – could make players even more keen to buy themselves a ticket or two.

A EuroMillions Mega Jackpot draw adheres to the same rules as the regular EuroMillions game, so the odds of winning the jackpot are exactly the same at 1 in 76,275,360. Tickets are also the same price as in a regular draw, so the only difference is the amount of money that can be won by a player who matches the five main numbers and the two Lucky Star numbers – a regular minimum jackpot is around £13 million, so the £85 million Mega Jackpot is almost seven times bigger.

Lottery games always tend to be more attractive in times of economic difficulty and many players also buy lottery tickets to cheer themselves up. These two observations have led commentators at Lottery.co.uk to predict that the coming Mega Jackpot game will be particularly popular.

Sam Weren, spokesman for Lottery.co.uk, said: “A jackpot of £85 million is enough to encourage millions of people to play the EuroMillions Mega Jackpot game all by itself. So if you combine that fact with the widespread desire to defeat the recession and the need for people to cheer themselves up as we say goodbye to the summer, we could well see a noticeable increase in the number of EuroMillions players buying tickets this week.”

With 12 prize levels in all, players won’t necessarily need to win the EuroMillions Mega Jackpot itself to have cause to celebrate. Secondary prizes can also be substantial, and there have been several draws where runners-up have actually become millionaires even though the jackpot itself eluded them. With the odds of winning any prize at all being 1 in 24, getting lottery results worth celebrating might not be as difficult as many people assume.

Anyone who chooses to play for the EuroMillions Mega Jackpot on Friday 18 September might want to first take a look at the wealth of inspirational and instructional articles that are available for free in the Lottery Articles Archive. Here readers can find information on a variety of lottery subjects, including how to start a lottery syndicate and how to improve their chances of winning.

New Online Games At Lottery.co.uk

Lottery.co.uk, the most popular independent lottery website in the UK, has announced that several new titles have been added to its already substantial range of Instant Casino games. This means that Instant Casino players can now enjoy some very popular games that were previously available only to players who wanted to download software to their PC. The extra titles that can now be played at the Lottery Casino without downloading anything include Cubis, Jenga and Dragon Sword.

For those who have yet to play at an Instant Casino, it should be noted that Lottery.co.uk employs the very latest in web browser technology to provide a gaming experience that is every bit as good as one would get in a downloadable casino environment. No special software is required to play the games, so a player can simply visit the Lottery Casino using a regular web browser and the games will automatically be loaded into the browser screen as content.

There are some large cash jackpots that can be won – these range from four and five figure sums up to appropriately lottery-sized jackpots of more than £1,000,000.

Three extra special games that are now available to Instant Casino players are Cubis, Jenga and Dragon sword.

Cubis is so-called because the game takes place in what can best be described as the diagonal half of a large cube-shaped structure. Two walls and a floor each hold 25 cubes of various colours, and the player wins prizes by getting lines of cubes that match. Essentially Cubis is a slots game, but it isn’t presented like a slots game. Bright graphics, sleek animations and exciting sound effects make it appear more like a 3D puzzle game.

Jenga is another slots game that doesn’t look at all like a slots game. It is based on the popular family game of the same name, and involves a tower of variously coloured bricks. If a player gets several matching Jenga bricks adjacent to each other then they win a cash prize – the more bricks that are matched, the bigger the prize. A quantity of bricks is then removed and new bricks added to the top of the Jenga tower, giving the player multiple chances of winning in the same game.

Sam Weren, spokesman for Lottery.co.uk, said: “Instant Casino players are often treated as second-class online casino players, and we don’t like that at all. We were determined to make sure that our most popular and entertaining download titles could be played by Instant Casino visitors, and we’re delighted to announce that we have succeeded. The quality of the games now available at our Lottery Instant Casino really does have to be seen to be believed.”
