One lucky man in the UK has plenty of reason to celebrate, as he managed to win thousands betting on golf.
Golf betting has been growing more and more over the past few years, and after the recent incredible gambling results that one lucky UK bettor found, it may become even bigger.
News has come out that Stephen Kelly, from Aberdeenshire, wagered just £10 on the winners of two different golf tournaments, and walked away with a staggering £44,000.
Kelly won thousands betting on golf by wagering on both Shiv Chawrasia and Adam Hadwin to win their most recent tournaments. The combined odds for them to win came out at 4343/1.
Choosing the right UK sports betting site can affect your gambling results, but luckily Kelly chose a good one. According to Metro, Stephen used Bet365 to place his bets.
There was a brief scare on the 16th hole when Adam Hadwin drove into the water, and Kelly worried he may lose out on his massive payday. “At the start of the day I wasn’t too concerned, but after a few beers and watching the football I began to get nervous at the thought of missing out on that kind of money.”
Luckily, Kelly earned some amazing gambling results winning thousands betting on golf, and told the media how he plans to use the money. “I’ve never had savings like this so it gives me the opportunity to potentially get a property in the future when I settle down.” Smart move, Mr. Kelly.
Derek Chisora’s probably a happy man right now, as he won big betting on massive underdog Tony Bellew beating David Haye.
In one of the first stories on great gambling results in 2017, professional boxer Derek Chisora won big betting on huge underdog Tony Bellew beating David Haye. Not many boxing betting experts predicted the fight would go to Bellew, who was giving up a massive size advantage.
Nontheless, Chisora had faith in the Liverpool native. Despite coming into the fight as a 5/1 betting underdog, Bellew shocked the world and earned an 11th round stoppage victory over Haye. Was it luck that Derek won big betting on Tony? According to him he always believed Bellew would get the win. “The underdog always wins, the world is changing,” he said to the media.
According to SkySports, Derek Chisora bet £500 on Bellew to win. If he managed to make that bet with the odds that most UK sports betting sites had at 5/1, he would have earned £2,500. That’s some amazing gambling results considering how many people were writing Bellew off.
Anyone who likes to bet on sports in the UK should consider making a similar wager for next month’s boxing match between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko. Chisora won big betting on the fights last week, will you be the next to earn a huge payout betting on boxing?
The gambling revenue in Macau is steadily rising thanks to new casinos that attract wealthy Chinese gamblers.
Macau has been the largest casino hub in the world for some years, but recent financial troubles had some casino experts wondering if Las Vegas would reclaim its spot at the top. That doesn’t appear to be the case, as the Macau gambling revenue is continuing to rise.
The positive casino gambling results have been a massive relief to the city, which relies almost entirely on the tourism and gambling industry. Newly opened casino resorts in 2016 have been a key factor in boosting the gambling revenue in Macau.
With the opening of the aforementioned casinos late in 2016, the Macau gambling industry has been thriving. In January alone, the revenue obtained through gambling (mostly through casinos) raised by 3.1% to $2.4 billion.
Now, Macau casino analysts are predicting the industry will continue to grow for the foreseeable future, and more US casino companies may start to consider opening up resorts inside the country. Whether players here will manage to see positive gambling results is an entirely different subject.
The story of John Henry against the steam-driven hammer was an old insight into man’s eventual loss to technology. Theories on the dangers of AI have been raging for years, and we’re just now beginning to see the power that a self-teaching computer can possess.
This was on full display a few weeks ago, when an AI dominated a tournament playing against poker pros. The artificial intelligence’s gambling results were staggering, winning nearly $800,000 in just the first week.
Called Liberatus, this AI was created by computer science professor Tuomas Sandholm and his PhD student Noam Brown. To date, this has been the first AI to find consistent success playing against poker pros in a major tournament.
A poker playing AI making headlines for it’s incredible poker gambling results is not exactly scary, but what if this intelligence was used for more dubious purposes, such as a cyber attack? Many in the tech industry have warned about the ramifications of an intelligent machine, sometimes known as a singularity.
There are so many potential issues that could arise, it’s scary to even think about. As Sam Harris once said, an AI programmed to delete spam email may decide the best course of action would be to eliminate all humans using email.
Nonetheless, this AI winning thousands playing poker is impressive, and on one hand sheds light on a way that an intelligence like this could be used for good. Looks like we’ll have to wait and see what’s ahead for the human race.
According to ESPN, William Hill, one of Nevada’s largest sports betting operators, suffered the worst losses in their 5-year history. The Saturday before the game the favorites were up 6-0, but on Sunday the Nevada gamblers decided to made gambling news and go with the underdogs.
Bill Sattler, director of specialty games at Caesars Entertainment, commented on the football gambling results by stating “Seemed like a blue-collar betting day with public parlaying, teasing and pounding money lines on Packers and Steelers. We salvaged the under in [the] late game, but another solid week for the public.”
Nevada Sportsbooks won a total of $73.64 on football (NFL and collegiate) in September, October, and November.
There are only four teams left in this NFL season. The 2017 NFL Conference Championships will go down this Sunday, and some NFL betting experts are predicting we may see more crazy gambling results from the game.
The Patriots and Falcons are the NFL betting favorites to win their respective games, but as we saw last week, anything is possible in the NFL. Who will you bet on?
Real Madrid tied Villarreal on Wednesday at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu and they were to make a trip to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria island in hopes of clinching all 3 points against the Yellows. The home team, however, disagreed with the intentions of Los Blancos and fought hard in order to crush the Royal dreams. And they succeeded! Zidane’s men took the lead twice in the game but Las Palmas managed to equalize on both occasions, setting the final result at 2-2.
Sports scores news and online sportsbooks of course did not expect such a result: basically everyone expected Real Madrid to shine. It doesn’t happen very often that they lose points in 2 consecutive league games. However, they did so this time and their confident lead over Barcleona, which could have risen up to 5 points, decreased to 1 point only, although they still lead La Liga. After losing 4 points in 4 days against 2 yellow teams, they will play at Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday night against Die Schwarzgelben. Good luck against the other Yellows!
Meanwhile, Barcelona tied Atletico de Madrid in the midweek round of La Liga which meant they couldn’t decrease their disadvantage over Los Merengues at that point. However, like many online betting sites in Spain predicted, Barca were not capable of losing points in 2 games in a row, unlike their ancient rivals. They played at Sporting Gijón’s home and trashed their opponent by 0-5.
Premier League was full of great matches this weekend, let’s start with the biggest and most passionate derby in our championship review: Arsenal v Chelsea. The encounter was expected to be tight despite the fact that Chelsea are not even close to be at their best so far. They are only 8th in the league with their 10 points, however, they are likely to be in the top 6 at least by the end of the season.
Arsenal are rather in a good form, they won 4 out of 6 league games they had so far this season. And they didn’t let their fans down in the city derby: Sanchez, Walcott and Özil scored for the Gunners, setting the final result at 3-0. Quite a convincing performance, one which they haven’t really managed to achieve against Chelsea in the past few seasons. Arsenal are third in Premier League with 13 points thanks to this win.
Manchester City played against Swansea away. Pep Guardiola’s men keep winning so far: 6/6, 100%, 18 points, terrific way to start a season. Of course they lead the league. A bit of a surprise that Tottenham are second with 14 points. These two are the only unbeaten teams in the Premier League. Spur seized a 1-2 victory in Middlesbrogouh.
Another match that was highly expected by online gambling news was the derby between maybe the most prestigious English club Manchester United and last season’s champions Leicester City. However, the game ended up being a rather one-sided one: Mourinho’s Red Devils won the first half by 4-0. The second half was only played because it was obligatory, but nothing exciting happened then, except for that one goal that Leicester’s Demarai Gray scored, ending the match at 4-1. United came up to the 6th position with this triumph over last season’s odds upsetting heroes.
Bundesliga is not the most exciting one of domestic leagues in the past few years. Nobody even knows when the last time it actually has been exciting was. Bayern Munich has been dominating the league and this year doesn’t seem to be any different either. They won 5 out of 5 games so far and are already 3 points ahead of Borussia Dortmund. However, they almost managed to lose 2 points against HSV: Kimmich ended up scoring the winning and only goal of the game in the 88th minute.
Borussia Dortmund, on the other has, continues playing in a convincing form before hosting Real Madrid. The Black and Yellow side hosted Freiburg on Friday and left no questions: Aubameyang took the lead for them and Piszczek scored the second. Philipp brought back hopes for the away side but Guerrero, who came in as a substitute, scored another for BVB in the 91st minute, ending the match at 3-1.
Hertha Berlin started the season in an incredible form and won 3 out of their first 3 league games, surprising all Bundesliga betting tips at the time. However, they met Bayern Munich in the 4th round who ended their terrific series of triumph. In the fifth round on Saturday, they were hosted by Eintracht Frankfurt and played a fantastic game: HBSC took the lead but Frankfurt were leading 2-1 at half time. By the 65th minute, Hertha were leading again by 2-3 and were wining until the very last second when Frankfurt’s Hector equalized and set the final result at 3-3.
Italian football is not living its best days every since the Calciopoli scandal. However, we can still regard Serie A as one of the best domestic leagues in European club football. Gambling news do so at least and the latest sports scores in the last few Champions League seasons also force us to take at least Juventus seriously. They stand out of all the other Italian clubs.
Yet they suffered against Palermo this weekend: they almost managed to hold a goalless draw Juve won eventually by 0-1 with an own goal. They have 15 points after 6 rounds thanks to this. The second best Italian team is Napoli, who hosted Chievo and won by 2-0. Napoli are the only unbeaten team in Serie A. They are only 1 point behind the Turin-based rivals…
The New Saints (TNS), champions of the Welsh first division, have been drawn together with Cyprian champions APOEL Nicosia, who have been participating in several group stages of the past few Champions League and Europa League tournaments. Obviously the Cyprian side were the favourites according to all gambling facts predictions.
The first le’s goalless draw made us believe that it won’t be such an easy battle for the favourites, but APOEL showed its class in the second leg. They were far more confident on home field and have secured an easy 3-0 victory. TNS had no chance in the second leg and hence their dreams of qualifying for the next round for crushed quickly.
It’s obvious that the Northern Irish Premiership is not among the strongest divisions in the universe, but it was also expected to have some improved performances this season thanks to Northern Ireland’s pretty good series of performances in France at Euro 2016. However, the UK country’s champion did an even worse exit of Europe than what Brexit caused for them.
Crusaders were facing a tough challenge against Danish champions FC Köbenhavn. The Danes won the first leg 3-0 in Northern Ireland and were obvious qualifiers already before hosting the Crusaders at Parken Arena. However, the Danes wanted to prove what the are capable of so they didn’t show any kind of mercy: the Champions League qualifiers results in this leg will always be remembered in Northern Ireland as FC Köbenhavn humiliated Crusaders by 6-0 at home, going through on a 9-0 of aggregated result.
Hungarian First Division winner Ferencvárosi Torna Club were facing Albanian champions Partizani Tirana. The Hungarians were clear favourites for the encounters according to the latest gambling news, however they failed to prove in the first leg that they are the better team: they only managed to play a 1-1 draw in the capital of Albania.
Ferencváros were also favourites for the second leg, which they were about to play at Groupama Aréna in Budapest. They should have won easily but the game ended in another 1-1 so it was decided in a penalty shootout. That’s when Partizani star became Champions League hero: Hoxha, Partizani’s goalkeeper took the first penalty for his team and he scored, with a panenka, completely humiliating the entire opponent team.
Especially after he saved the first penalty of Ferencváros, which was shot by Hungarian football legend Zoltán Gera. Hoxha completely destroyed any remaining confidence and hopes of the opponent team in just one round and he basically won the penalty shootout in the first round immediately. He saved the next penalty as well. Partizani Tirana won by 3-1 on penalties in the end, they missed only one and they didn’t have to take the last penalty…
One of the most surprising Champions League Qualifiers results in the first leg of this round was the unexpected victory that Lincoln Red Imps achieved against Scottish giant Celtic FC. Online sports betting news were shocked when live sports results showed a 1-0 lead for the Gibraltarian champions and that 1-0 ended being the final result for the first leg.
However, as expected by online sportsbooks from all around the world, Celtic did not let such a disgrace happen to be knocked out by a semi-professional football club from Gibraltar. The Scottish champion hosted Lincoln and made sure to show them they have no chance here. Celtic won by 3-0 and can expect the next round after a confident and successful encounter after all.
Lately the rumours for Celtic to join Premier League have started re-appearing because of its dominant performances in the Scottish First Division thanks to the exit of Rangers. However, it’s not very likely to happen any time soon, especially if the UK falls apart thanks to that cute little Brexit… and of course Celtic wouldn’t have much benefits from it: how could they participate in the Champions League if they had to face teams like Man Utd, City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal week after week…instead of Aberdeen, Hearts or Dundee Utd.
As we know, Italy managed to defeat La Furi Roja in the Euro 2016 Round of 16 and can prepare for an even harder battle in the Quarter-Finals.
Italy and Spain were drawn together for the Euro 2016 Round of 16 encounter where La Furia Roja were favourites according to all sports scores news. All sportsbooks favoured Spain to go through and qualify for the Euro 2016 QFs yet the Italian side upset all odds with a relatively easy, 2-0 defeat against Vicente Del Bosque’s men.Sergio Ramos El Heroe de la Decima was incapable of saving his team despite the fact that he was having a great tournament all in all. Elimination was at an expensive price for Spain manager del Bosque: He resigned a few days earlier and now one of the biggest questions at online sportsbooks in Spain is who will be the successor of the former successful manager of Real Madrid.
Spain are home by now and the pre-season will start for most Furia Roja stars, including Sergio Ramos El Heroe de la Decima. The captain of Real Madrid must be really annoyed by the result as he got used to being successful and winning. Something which he and his national team has been incapable of doing in the past two years: after being humiliated in the 2014 World Cup, they once again made an early exit at Euro 2016, with a rather disappointing performance.
Sergio Ramos El Heroe de la Decima must be waiting for the new Spain manager as he is the leader and the team captain of the national team as well as his club, Real Madrid. The Sevillan central back signed a new contract last year at Real Madrid. The Sergio Ramos signature on the paper made sure that he will belong to the Royal Club until 2020. That signature shut down tons of rumours about him leaving the Galacticos for joining Manchester United. These rumours were, at some point, regarded as one of the most certain gambling facts according to many online sportsbooks in the UK.
The European Championship is about to reach to its finish and Sergio Ramos El Heroe de la Decima will not be in it any longer, for which he must be really upset. However, he must accept that his national team does not dominate the football world any longer and it’s time for a new era with new set of players s well as a new manager. Most probably the new manager will still count on the team captain as there can be no complaints about his performances.
On the other hand, Italy will face World Cup holder Germany in the Quarter Finals of Euro 2016. According to the latest gambling news, Germany will be favourites for the encounter, yet it’s time to take Italy seriously. They already proved that they have a great team by easily defeating title-favourite Belgium in the first matchday of Euro 2016 and they also knocked out Euro title holder Spain in the Round of 16 with a pretty confident team performance.
Italy are not underdogs any longer at this point of the tournament as they have openly declared their intention of winning the trophy. Should they defeat Germany as well, they would definitely be the strongest candidates towards victory: defeating the World Cup holder after eliminating the Euro holder would be a major confidence-boost for Conte’s men.
On the other hand, Portugal eliminated Poland on penalties and are waiting for their opponent in the semi-finals, which will be the winner of the Wales v Belgium encounter. The winner of the Germany v Italy game will face the winner of the France v Iceland clash where the Icelandic dreams are expected to end finally, as the hosting nation are clear favourites for the clash.
The PokerStars RaiseIt challenge, as the name suggests, has been launched by one of the most popular online poker rooms in the world.
PokerStars RaiseIt challenge is the latest social media marketing tool for the popular online poker room. The marketing team has decided that upon the popularity of competitive football tournaments such as Euro 2016 or the Copa América which, surprising all sports scores news who had predicted a win for Argentina, just finished with Chile’s victory, the best idea is to start doing marketing somehow in connection with football. The PokerStars RaiseIt challenge is nothing but the perfect solution for executing this idea.The main rule to follow is to do something impressive with the ball. Of course it doesn’t matter if you shoot with perfect accuracy or you have amazing skills or you can keep the ball in the air so long that nobody else can repeat after you. The point is that you have to be better than the ones before you, and that you have to be better than yourself every time you try again. You have to Raise It to the top, you have to Raise Yourself to the top.That is the social media marketing campaign that was launched as soon as Neymar’s video was released. Neymar showed his skills in shooting as well as placing and bending the ball in his first video when he put the ball in the car’s back from in front of the car. Neymar invited Ronaldo Luiz Nazario da Lima to join the PokerStars RaiseIt challenge and top his video by an even better performance.
Luckily for all football fans, we didn’t have to wait too long for the reply of the Brazilian legend. The incredible and outstanding Ronaldo skills were proved instantly in his reply video. He put the ball down on the street just behind a cabriolet car. One of the greatest strikers of all time waited for the car to leave. After it was far enough, Ronaldo shot and the ball enters the car after dropping on the ground once. Declaring a winner at PokerStars RaiseIt challenge won’t be as easy as simple sports scores results.
Ronaldo definitely Raised the bar to a higher standard, but that didn’t mean that Nexmar should have given up already. One of the most famous member of Barcelona’s MSN has tried to raise Ronaldo’s skills by another video that required tons of technical skills: he held the ball on this back and let go of it, perfectly putting the ball into a bucket meters underneath him. Then he takes his second ball, keeps it in the air for a while and then puts it perfectly in another bucket, tens of meters away from him.
Neymar definitely managed to Raise It for now, however online gambling news are still hoping to see another terrific idea from Ronaldo. We are sure he didn’t just give up on his PokerStars RaiseIt challenge. Moreover, it would also be interesting to see other famous PokerStars representatives, such as Portuguese world star Cristiano Ronaldo, entering the PokerStars RaiseIt challenge, but other footballers and non-footballers are also free to join. All they need to do is do something amazing, record it, submit the video at the website and wait for others to like the performance.
According to the latest gambling news, the chances for Hungary to win Euro 2016 are getting better and better. This is mainly caused by the amazing performances they keep showing at Euro 2016. They are still unbeaten at the tournament, they won Group F upon defeating Austria my 2-0 and tying both Iceland and Portugal, respectively by 1-1 and 3-3.
Hungary to win Euro 2016 is actually among the top bet recently as their odds are pretty high: 81.00 (80/1) at Bet365, 101.00 (100/1) at other popular online sportsbooks such as BetVictor, Paddy Power and Bwin. Could they do a Greece of 2004 in 2016? It would definitely be one of the biggest surprises in football history, but we should not believe it’s impossible.
The Austrians believed that it is impossible for them not to defeat such a weak team like the Hungarian. We all know how that ended: 2 fantastic goals from Hungary’s Szalai and Stieber and zero from Austria. After that they played like a real big team against Iceland: the Nordics took the lead in the first half due to a controversial penalty, but Hungary pushed hard in the second half and did manage to equalize in the 88th minute with an own goal. They created enough chances to win by 3-4 goals but the finishing never worked.
And then they faced Portugal, who were in desperate need of a win while Hungary were sure to qualify for the Round of 16 when the match started. Unmotivated Hungary versus overly motivated Portugal, that’s what all gambling online guides predicted but that’s completely not how they game looked like: it was a perfect game from both sides. and this was the type of “joga bonito” that an average football actually enjoys watching.
Hungary took the lead early on, but Cristiano Ronaldo assisted and Nani equalized in the end of the first half. Free kick master Dzsudzsák scored as soon as the second half started: his free kick changed its way on the wall and hence found its way to the goal. Cristiano Ronaldo equalized with a terrific finishing with his back heel which was one of the most beautiful goals at Euro 2016. However, it was not enough: Hungary captain Dzsudzsák had another free kick, he hit the wall but collected the ball. He shot. And Dzsudzsák scored against Portugal for the second time. And then as if it was on repeat: Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo, who was playing like a true captain and world class player, which he obviously is, equalized again. Portugal went down 3 times and stood up 3 times, however Hungary were also rather heroic at this game. Terrific performance by the team and an incredible surprise from them throughout the entire tournament.
For Hungary to win Euro 2016, they must keep on playing like they have been so far and taking advantage of the fact that all opponents looked down on them. Everyone counted on underdogs Hungary finishing last in the group and that it’s a sure 3-points for all their rivals. That’s not really how it happened in Group F: they just won the group without a single defeat and with some amazing moments.
Bernd Storck’s men will play against Belgium in the Euro 2016 Round of 16. Belgium are among the top 5 favourites to win Euro 2016. One of the most obvious gambling facts is that betting on Hungary against Belgium would be rather optimistic and you can bet on Hungary to win at online sportsbooks for pretty high odds. Should they defeat Belgium, the chances for Hungary to win Euro 2016 would become even better as the winner of Wales v Northern Ireland would be waiting for them in the quarter finals. And oh well, anything is possible and in a world full of dullness and boredom, why shouldn’t we hope for a surprise team to win Euro 2016?
