If you’ve spent any time on our site at all then you’ll know we’re massive fans of the Emerald Isle. We go there for all our holidays, usually paid for with our winnings on the Rainbow Riches slot machines. If you’re any kind of football fan, you’ll know that the Republic of Ireland have qualified for the 2012 UEFA European Championships. As ever the expectation on the team is so low, we’ll be happy if they even manage to turn up for a game. The whole thing for us is a big excuse to get down the pub and drink. We even like to squeeze in a few spins on the Rainbow Riches fruit machine down there. Of course, with players like Aiden McGeady and Robbie Keane there’s always a chance the boys could do well, but we’re not holding our breath.
So we’re going to be giving up slots like Rainbow Riches Pots of Gold in favour of a bit of sports-betting this month. We’re not going to be re-mortgaging the house or anything drastic like that, so don’t worry about our finances. Many of the operators featured on our sites also provide sports-betting alongside the very best in casino and table games. Paddy Power is a great place to get both slot machine and football wager action, and they usually have a number of novelty bet offers around any sporting occasion. They’re currently offering a rather nice money back bet. All you have to do is choose which four teams will finish top of their groups and if you get just one wrong (but not two, three or four) you’ll get your money back. Of course, if you’re a high roller you don’t have to stop your slot play, you can always bang away at the reels of Win Big Shindig whilst watching the football. A perfect way to get the best of both worlds.
