In this week’s edition of Crypto Betting Weekly, we take a look at a way for you to win free bitcoin with Cloudbet (review, American bettors are geo-blocked), Atari launching a crypto casino, then Stake (review, American bettors are geo-blocked) teaming up with UFC and a slew of soccer action!
Atari hoping for blockchain casino boost
In a bid to jumpstart Atari’s comeback it’s preparing to launch a blockchain-based crypto casino. Running on the Ethereum blockchain and powered by Decentral Games, the new Atari crypto casino has a lot of potential. To make matters more exciting, we’ll also see Atari create special Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs).
If Decentral Games’ portfolio of casino games is anything to go by, the Atari Casino could be rather short lived. At the moment you can only play blackjack, roulette, backgammon and a slot, all of which are pretty sub-par. That being said, Atari are supposedly developing their own games for the casino.
Weekend bets to keep an eye on…
Chelsea vs Leeds – Chelsea to win at odds of 1.732
Chelsea are unbeaten in their 9 English Premier League games under Thomas Tuchel, keeping 7 clean sheets in the process. Leeds look to be on a bad run with 4 defeats in their last 5 matches. Chelsea dominated Leeds in the reverse fixture and will expect to extend their unbeaten record.
Spurs vs Arsenal – Spurs +0 handicap at odds of 2.046
Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) have won 4 games in a row and they’ve got an in-form Gareth Bale. Spurs have also scored 13 goals in their 4 back-to-back wins. The lethal front three of Bale, Son and Kane could cause local rivals Arsenal big problems. The Gunners had a grueling trip to Greece midweek, while Spurs avoided travel with a home tie in the Europa League. This plays into the hands of Spurs nicely, making a handicap of Spurs +0 look attractive.
Mariners vs Glory – over 2.5 goals at odds of 1.647
Perth Glory have had 8 league games this season and every single one has landed over 2.5 goals. This weekend they travel to the highest scorers in the league, Central Coast Mariners. The 60% implied probability on these odds looks low, so it’s good value.
Stake teams up with the UFC
The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is officially tying the knot with Stake.com. Under the agreement between the 2, Stake will become the first “Official Betting Partner” of the UFC in Latin America (excluding Brazil) and Asia.
This means that Stake will be able to bring exclusive interviews, digital content and a new gaming experience to UFC fans in Latin America and Asia. While the specifics on what this will look like are still not clear, we can expect something akin to the behind the scenes access that Southampton FC fans get through Sportsbet.io’s betting partnership with the English Premier League soccer club.
