The excitement of most sporting leagues culminates in some sort of grand championship to determine which team is at the top of their game. For the National Football League, this event is the Super Bowl. So important is this event it has become a holiday of sorts within the United States as well as for football fans around the world. Additionally, it is also the focus of many different sports bets.
Sports bets make it possible for fans to win some many while enjoy football. Futures betting exists right now for who bettors believe will win the Super Bowl. Some teams have already been singled out as long shots when reading the odds posted by sportsbook. The Jacksonville Jaguars currently have odds established at 5000 to 1. While the team taking home the Lombardi Trophy is quite rare given the odds, should it happen, some lucky bettor could win $5000 on a $1 bet.
A primary consideration for this year's Superbowl is weather. Unlike the tropical escapes to Miami or the Rose Bowl, this year we will see some old fashioned AFL / NFL style football as the game will be played in New York, outside, in the dead of winter. Frankly, true football fans will enjoy this just as hockey fans have rapidly grown to love the outdoor NHL classic each season. Let's play next year's Superbowl at Lambeau Field in Green Bay!
Many online casinos offer football related slot machines which provide another way fans can win big with their sport. One online casino game is 5 Million Dollar Touchdown. This game is unique in that it provides fans with the chance to win two different jackpots. The largest of these is of course the title amount of $5 million. To be eligible for this, players must bet the overall maximum amount for each spin which is $200. The reels must have five scatter symbols on one of the pay lines. The second jackpot is smaller but occurs more frequently. This one is worth $15,000 and doesn’t require all pay lines to be activated. Players can trigger this jackpot betting a penny on one pay line. What must occur is five wild symbols have to show on the activated lines. Of course, wagering on more lines increases the probability of a winning occurring. But if you're placing the long bet, you might want to consult your Farmer's Almanac for New York. Who can honestly say when the next Hurricane Sandy will hit.
