Sep 8, 2019

Many people who know little about golf believe that it is a boring game played by old people. However, that’s far from the truth. Golf is a dynamic and versatile game, as there are many different types of games and scoring systems you can play and use. You can even earn bonuses, much like in casino games found in the Casino Room. So, if you are one of those people who shy away from golf whenever they have a chance to play, it’s time to change that. Below, you will see the most popular types of competitions and scoring systems that should change your opinion. Stroke Play Stroke play is the most popular and most common type of golf competition that is usually played at professional tournaments. In this game, all players or teams take a shot at all 18 holes. The total number of strokes required by a player is counted, and the person or team with the lowest total number wins.  Match Play In match play, two teams or two players take shots at each hole as a separate event or round. The player/team with the lower number of strokes on a particular hole wins that contest. If the two players have an equal number of shots, the hole is halved. The total number of hole wins is counted and the winner is determined. Foursome Foursome is a type of golf game played by two teams of two players, four players in total. Players of one team take turns hitting the ball until they pot it. One player has the first shot on odd holes and the other on even holes, regardless of who made the last shot. This game can be played under both stroke and match rules. Four Ball Four Ball is similar to Foursome, but each player plays with their own ball. They compete separately for the holes, and their results are added together at the end of each round. The team with the better stroke count wins the hole. Moreover, the team with more holes wins the competition. Scramble Scramble is one of the most dynamic and most interesting types of golf competitions. It is played by teams...

The Greatest Golf Tournaments of 2019

The Greatest Golf Tournaments of 2019

May 7, 2019

2019 is upon us, which means that now is the perfect time to discuss the best there is in terms of golf competitions. We will be focusing more on the events themselves and less on the motels, anecdotes about the courses and the promotions from Ladbrokes. Here are the greatest golf competitions in the world. The PGA Championship Our list could hardly start without this little number. It is sometimes referred to as US PGA and it is one of the four major championships. Starting with 2019, it will occur every May, making it the second championship of the year to watch out for. What separates the PGA Championship from the rest of the tourneys is the fact that it invites the top 100 players to join, provided they can meet the requirements. The criteria are difficult to follow and even more onerous to achieve. You can either be a former PGA champion, or among the 15 lowest scorers, win the last five Opens, Open Championships, or Masters, win a tournament sponsored by the PGA Tour, or by special invitation by the PGA of America. This year’s Championship is held at the Bethpage State Park in the state of New York. You are more than welcome to check out the results of Brooks Koepka (trust us, it’s worth it). The Masters This tournament was originally brought into existence by Clifford Roberts and Bobby Jones and has since sported numerous traditions, like the green jacket that is given to the winner for a year. To get the said jacket, golfers from all over the world battle over 4 days on the green. The tournament usually occurs in April and this year was no different. On April 14th in Augusta, Georgia, we’ve found out that the winner was the one and only Tiger Woods who, unfortunately, didn’t make the cut for this year’s PGA Championship. This is Woods’ fifth green jacket, which puts him behind Jack Nicklaus by one win. The US Open In Jun, golfers will try their best in the US Open on Pebble Beach. We are yet to see who the winner will be, though people are already speculating that Koepka has a...

Betting on Golf – The Different Bets you Can Make

Betting on Golf – The Different Bets you Can Make

Jan 12, 2019

Betting is a very prominent way of recreation, for many people all over the world. Golf is also a sport which is slow and takes time for a match or tournament to finish. People love betting on golf to make it more interesting. There are plenty of bets which you can make on golf, so here is a list of those bets, including what to do prior to betting. Finding a Good Sportsbook Chances are that you will be betting online, and in that case, you need to find a good online sportsbook. Sportsbooks come in all shapes and sizes, meaning that the level of quality of service and security can vary greatly from site to site. Check for reputable sportsbooks and look for third-party reviews. Be careful when reading reviews, however, as some might be more enticing than others. A good review would be this review of Bally’s Wild Wild West sportsbook. Look for something similar to that and then you can move on to learning about bets, knowing that you found a great sportsbook. Golf Bets – A Variety of Possibilities Golf is fun because there are a lot of bets for punters to explore. From standard to Win bets to more specific head to head matchups, golf can offer punters a new world of betting possibilities. Here are those bets, in detail. To Win Bet This bet is relatively simple, where you bet that a certain player will win either a round or an entire tournament. This bet is present in every game out there, under a different name, however. Versus the Field This bet is sort of an opposite to the above-mentioned bet. It is only available once a favorite for a tournament is established. There are some favorites prior to the start of any tournament, but once the rankings are clearer, you can bet that any player other than the favorite will win the tournament. Head to Head Bets These are some of the most fun bets you can make as they pit one golfer against another, without anything else being important. Once a sportsbook decides on which golfers you can bet on in a head to head bet,...

How To Bet Online On Your Favorite Sport

How To Bet Online On Your Favorite Sport

Jul 20, 2018

The online gambling industry has been growing at a rapid rate over the past 20 or so years. There are many advantages to gambling online compared to doing it in land-based casinos:        Play from the comfort of your home        Available 24/7        Use promotions to help you get started Like we said above, gambling online often comes with some kind of promotion, one of them being a $100 Cashback bonus that you can claim by playing different slot games from the Virgin Casino. The main problem for online gamers once they claim one of the bonuses is the withdrawal process. Players want to get the money out right after a small win, or after only a few hands/spins, but are often stuck with the withdrawal requirements. In most cases, players are obligated to play a certain number of rounds or accumulate enough total bets to withdraw the money. These requirements vary between different casinos, so always be aware of them when you get to a new website. Sign up to the casino to play other games as well such as:        Atlantic City Blackjack        Single Deck Blackjack        American Roulette        Pai Gow Poker        Craps        Keno If you want to try a new game, but you don’t have any experience with it and are not willing to gamble with real money straight away, go with the demo version and try out all the in-game features with demo credits. Live & Mobile Betting With sports betting, you want to find a bookie that has to offer all kinds of sport events. Some places online have lower football leagues, minor golf tournaments, second and third league races, etc. By being a member of such bookies, you’ll have instant access to all the bets, so you won’t miss them even if the event is just about to start. Live betting is a great way to catch up with a match, race or a fight that has already started. Keep in mind that the odds in live betting change almost every five to ten seconds, depending on how well the participants are doing. A very convenient way of placing online bets is to use casino or bookie mobile applications. You can stay...
