Premier League – Europe’s most exciting

As you certainly know, we here at Sportsnews.be love sports betting. Lately we’ve been looking overseas as soccer (or football as they call it) is growing on us. Let’s talk a little about this European Football and why we’ve been so excited about it lately.

Ok, let’s admit it right away, soccer doesn’t give you the spectacular plays of football but there is a lot of other great things you need to take into consideration. Firstly, it’s 90 minutes and they play constantly those 90 minutes except for a break in the middle. How much of your time spent at the arena goes to chatting with friends and eating hot dogs at a football game and how much is actually spent watching the game you came for?

There are several leagues

We have to remember that Europe is not a unified place, the different countries have VERY different leagues and a personal favorite is Premier League (UK). A lot of people dislike what I like but here goes: There’s a lot more money in Premier League than in the other countries. It used to be Italy that dominated the with high salary players (soccer players make money like crazy) but they regulated salaries, United Kingdom didn’t.

Teams like Manchester City and Chelsea push crazy amounts of money in to the game and that, like everywhere else, increases the quality. If you still haven’t tried out English Football, give it a chance and stream it from one of the many services out there and place a bet, amigo, that’s how you enjoy soccer.

State of Nevada – open for business

One of the biggest news in the sports betting world is the opening for Poker Online in Nevada. Ok, it’s not actually sports betting but it is close enough. Nevada has already aproved and Ohio together with California seems to be next.

Rumors are that the bricks n mortar casinos will be the first ones to throw themselves online in a perfectly legal way. The State of Nevada has a tendency to favour them, for some reason.  More reading…

Champions League Final: Barcelona beats Manchester United

The Champions League finals took place tonight at Wembley Stadium in London in front of 90 000 visitors. Barcelona playing Manchester United and Man U were hoping to get back at Barca after the loss in Rome 2 years earlier.

The last time they met in a Champinons League Final Manchester completely lost the initiative and became passive while Barcelona dominated the pitch, the exact same thing happened tonight. Even though Wayne Rooney did his best getting 1-1 Man U didn’t stand a chance.

Barcelona scored 3-1 thanks to Pedro (27th minute), Lionel Messi (54th) and David Villa (69th). The question is if there is any team in the world that can give the fast moving team from Spain. They dominated the first half and in the second they completely steam rolled Man U. Fergusson is said to have said that it’s the best team he ever faced.

Canucks vs Bruins

As the Boston Bruins are now clear for the Stanley Cup finals we know what to expect. Canucks – Bruins will definately be an interesting game. A lot of the experts believe Boston will have a hard time with the Canadians – even if a lot of them are actually Swedish (We are talking of course about the Sedin Twins, keep a look out here for an interview with both of them).

We can look forward to a fast and fun Stanley Cup final.

Sportsbook.com changes to Sportsbook.com.au

Sportsbook.com has recently changed domain to Sportsbook.com.au. This might seem like a strange action to take but there are reasons.

The latest actions of US government against sportsbooks 2BetDsi and Bookmaker.com are probably the reasons for Sportbook.coms change. Without making too much fuzz about it Sportsbook.com just changed to a domain not controlled by US government for fear of getting the same treatment as the competitors. Bookmaker.com and 2BetDSI both lost their domains to Homeland Security (if you would guess, would you ever guess Homeland Security)?

Sportsbook.com are probably betting that the Australian domain registrar wont budge to easily to an American court.

Bookmaker.com on new domain

Bookmaker.comHomeland Security (?!) seized, among other domains, the domin of Bookmaker.com e few days ago. Representatives of Bookmaker.com told Sportsnews.be that they are still doing business as usual on the new domain bmaker.ag. There should be no problems promises the representative.

Bookmaker.com one of the biggest sportsbooks in the US was seized by the governmet for illegal gambling this weekend. The press release claiming that federal agents started a bank doing money transfers for Bookmaker.com and a number of other gaming sites for several years. Transfering money to and from a gaming site is illegal and this is used to build a case against 3 persons in the company, among them the head of finance.

How the feds can claim that Bookmaker.com has made illegal transfers surpasses the editors of this small news site as all the transfers were done by the bank started by the government. Poker players on two plus two forums rapidly came to the conclusion that it isn’t so strange that Bookmaker.com had the fastest withdraw/deposits in the industry – it was FBI handling them.

If you are still looking for Bookmaker.com you can find the site on bmaker.ag
