“It’s an old cliche but the sky is the limit,” he added.

Although Madrid’s fun88 residents will be able to bet on social events and TV competitions like Pop Idol or Big Brother, authorities have banned wagers on religion or politics.. Spain’s state-run Christmas lottery, known as ‘El Gordo’ or ‘The Fat One’ is the world’s biggest prize draw, dishing out 2.2 billion euros last December.

Victoria’s new shop, located above a Codere casino, gleams with chrome and glass and has comfortable sofas and a bar — a far cry from the stereotypical British bookie, offering plastic seats and a bank of screens showing the 3.45 from Kempton Park.

Hallahan said Spain was “virgin territory” which offered bookies the chance to redefine betting shops as a more attractive destination for women.

British bookie William Hill and Spanish gambling firm Codere plan to set up 70 sports betting shops across the Madrid area — the first of Spain’s 17 regions to grant licenses — under the joint venture’s Victoria brand.

Madrid has granted a license to a joint venture between Britain’s Ladbrokes and Spain’s Cirsa, while Greece’s Intralot were awarded one last week. Austrian firms bwin and Betbull also plan to launch a joint franchise and private-equity owned Gala Coral has been in talks with potential Spanish partners for the last six months.

Spanish betting market is expected to grow to 39 billion euros ($57.8 billion) by 2010, with the sports betting market set to hit 4.5 billion euros, according to MECN consultants.

“There is a huge demand everywhere,” said Victoria’s Operations Manager John Hallahan. However, apart from a workplace sweepstake or an informal wager between friends, up to now Spaniards have had to go online to bet on sporting events, although the state-run lottery does offer a twice-weekly football pools game.

“We are starting with a blank sheet… I would expect a healthy interest from women, who won’t be deterred by a historical perception in the UK that betting is a male-only activity,” he said.

MADRID Spain’s first sports betting shop opened for business on Wednesday, one of thousands that foreign bookmakers hope to launch in the football-crazy nation which already bets more than any other European country.

Spaniards already spend an average of 670 euros each a year on betting, according to industry and government figures READ MORE

Choosing between the many greyhound racing websites that are available is simple, when the reputation of the website is compared with the races and the bets that can be made.

Many online racebooks allow the bettor to take part in betting practices without actually being in the local area, as they can showcase the matches online with the use of the streaming video that can be presented to clients, allowing the clients to watch the races that are being bet on, with ease.

As one of the most popular types of animal racing in the world, greyhound racing betting has many different types of bets that can be made with many different types of outcomes. Many times, these prizes are outlined with the bet that is being made, allowing even beginners to determine the potential prize that is available with the bet that has been made.

Using the odds and learning about the dogs and the specifics of the sport can be a great way to get into greyhound racing betting online.

How can you determine what the prize will be once the bet has been made? The prize that will be given to the successful bettor depends on two factors; the amount that has been bet and the odds that are placed on the bet that has been made.

The important odds to consider are the first, second and third for most bets that are being made. Online betting sites with “racebooks” set the greyhound racing betting odds.

The odds are available through the race and are created by the sports books. It is important to realize that the odds given for the race are accurate and the odds m88 casino makers have years of experience in determining the results of the race and therefore the odds should be considered accordingly.. There are often multiple dogs that are involved in the race and the bets are made on the position that the dogs are going to arrive over the finish line. These odds are going to determine the likelihood of a certain dog coming in a certain place through the race.

Using these two factors, greyhound racing betting sites will determine the prize that is going to be awarded

“It preys on peoples’ vulnerabilities and directly leads to money laundering, loansharking and a host of other crimes,” Thompson said.

Mitchnick is the suspected leader of the ring, which operated in Brooklyn and other areas, prosecutors said. The defendants face up to 25 years in prison if convicted of the top charge of enterprise corruption, prosecutors said. Thompson said he believes the bust is the biggest of its kind to be brought by local prosecutors.

At its peak, the operation had $200,000 in monthly bills including salaries for a team of employees located in San Jose, Costa Rica, who ran a call center for betters, prosecutors said.

Most forms of gambling are illegal in New York state, with legal gambling limited to Indian reservation casinos, betting on horse races and Las Vegas-style casinos.

Attorneys for the defendants were not immediately identifiable.

Clients were solicited by word of mouth and on internet gambling forums.

“Illegal gambling is not a victimless crime,” Thompson said. Additional arrests are expected in the ongoing investigation.

The operation accepted $927 million in wagers on National Football League games during the 2015 season, prosecutors said. He is accused of purchasing more than 20 houses to help him launder money. A toll-free number for wagering was also provided..

The first and original version was the HitnStik*. The batter may have to take a slight inward step with the front foot to properly execute this swing.

The has a great selection of BASEBALL COACHING and TRAINING ARTICLES. The ball should be at a location just inside the batters back foot. I often see coaches and parents working with players when I visit a park. Remember to direct the ball toward the belly button or back foot of the batter.

The holder changes location and height and allows the batter to take 6 swings at each location. This is what I call “coning out”.

*HitnStik is a registered trademark belong to Easton Sports. The unit is portable and requires no setup. The ball hit is on the middle 3rd of the plate. The batter should take a step and drive the ball.

6. Check to make sure the batter is using proper grip, stance and stride mechanics.

The popularity come from the benefits they offer the baseball player, baseball coach, and the baseball parent. All of these are handheld units. ^Hit2win is a registered trademark of Nedco Sports Products. Allowing the ball to pass inside the front foot allows the batter to use the front foot and leg as a anchor and leverage to generate a more powerful swing.

4. The batter will drive the bat through the box. The height of the ball should be raised and lowered in the strike zone to give the batter swings at both high and low strikes.

3. Make sure the batter does not over stride.

There are many versions of the “ball-on-a-rod” trainer. This location simulates hitting a pitch over the inside 3rd of the plate. The batter should attack the inside strike earlier to keep from getting jammed.

9. Make sure that the batter is swinging in a direction that is free of persons should the batter lose the grip on the bat.

8. I sometimes get frustrated because I observe the product being used incorrectly.

The key to proper use of any hand-held batting device is KNOWING AND USING THE CORRECT ANGLE FOR THE DRILL YOU ARE DOING! If you do not direct or point the ball at the proper angle, the batter will always make poor contact. You can learn to hit without having to chase, pick-up or retrieve a single ball. These trainers are some of the most popular baseball batting trainers used today.. The purpose of these swings is to make the batter use the hips as the batter turns and hits the ball. INSIDE STRIKE – The holder moves toward the direction of the pitcher from the batter. The holder will change the location of the ball by moving.

The batter takes 5 swings at 5 different ball locations. If the angle is wrong, the end of the bat will hit behind the ball and the bat will never actually touch the ball. This simple rule insures that proper bat-to-ball contact is made. The ball should be positioned slightly in front of the batters front foot. Make sure the ball is directed at the batter’s back foot.

2. The 4X5 Baseball and Softball Pre-game Warm-up Drill

Baseball Hitting Drills – Tips and Drills For Using Hitting Stick Trainers

 by: Nick Dixon

1. The first thing to remember is that the holder should always direct the rod and ball toward the hitter’s back foot. Then later came other versions including the Hit2win Trainer^ and the SKLZ Target Trainer. AWAY STRIKE LOCATION – The holder will move around a couple more feet to give the batter a ball to hit that is on the outer 3rd of the plate. The batter swings and drives the ball in a direction that would be to the opposite field. HIP TURNER LOCATION – The holder stands slightly behind the batter directing the ball at the batter’s bat pocket. The batter does not move. Make sure that the hitting area is safe with no one within 15 feet of the holder or the batter.

3. Positive reinforcement should be given when the batter makes good solid contact.

7. You should not move the ball when using these trainers. The holder should make sure that the trainer safety strap is used to prevent the holder from losing their grip on the trainer when the batter hits the ball.

As the inventor of the HitnStik*, Hit2win Trainer^, and SKLZ Target+ Trainer, I sometimes cringe when I see someone using the product incorrectly. MIDDLE STRIKE CONTACT – The holder will move around a couple more feet. First, the product is to be used as a “still” ball trainer. +SKLZ Target is a registered trademark of Pro Performance Sports.

1. Check out the Bat Action Hitting Machine baseball pitching simulator at Second, the holder must stand at the proper angle to the batter and direct the ball at the correct angle to the batter. This high speed training machine is 100% Guaranteed to raise Batting Averages and has a full year warranty.

2. The batter should keep the head still and the head should stay down with the eyes on the ball throughout the swing.

Coaching Points:

4. It is welcomed in complexes and parks because it allows safe pre-game warm-up, requires little space, and does not damage fences. Every player on the team can take 30 warm-up swings each in less than 10 minutes.

10. They have different names but they all are great trainers to teach and train young players. All of these baseball trainers basically work and perform the same. This teaches the batter to allow the ball down the middle to get inside the front foot so that maximum power can be generated during the swing. It is important to know the proper angles when using this product.

5. The ball should be positioned at a location inside the batters front foot. The ball will be positioned in a location behind the front foot READ MORE

This number can actually vary between 9 and 12 (depending on the level of the league that the game is being played in), but in most cases there will be only 9 players on each side.

The field of play is divided into two main parts – the infield and the outfield.

The pitcher is required to pitch the ball from the pitcher’s mound which is located at the center of the diamond. Slow-pitch softball is the more popular of the two, as its rules are relatively simpler, which makes it an ideal choice even for the rookies out there. (inside the infield area)

When both teams have finished batting, it is known as an inning. The job of basemen is to cover their bases and catch throws made by fielders to their assigned base, in order to get the base runners out.


He stands behind the batter and attempts to catch the balls thrown to him by the pitcher. The first and most prominent among them being the fact that fast-pitch softball is similar to baseball in many ways, and the strategies and techniques applied in it are more or less along the lines of regular baseball. Leading off the bases is not permitted under any circumstances.

Interference in play is when a player of either team intentionally obstructs the path of either the runner as he tries to get to a base or that of an opposing team player as he tries to gather the ball or effect an out.

If the fault is of the batter or baserunner, the guilty player is declared out and the other runners need to return to their previous bases.

In case the obstruction was caused by a defending team player, the opposing team player gets to reach the base that he would otherwise have covered without the obstruction.


The shortstop is positioned between the second base and the third base. The following is a list of the positions occupied by players in the sport of softball.


The pitcher throws the softball from the pitcher’s mound to the catcher. All these together make soft-pitch softball the most played team sport in the United States.

outfielderOutfielders (Left, Right, and Center)

These are players positioned on the outfield area, that is outside the diamond area. When the pitcher pitches ‘ball’ four times, the batter get to move on to first base.

bullet ballBase Runner – A batter who reaches a base safely is called a base runner.

bullet ballBases Loaded – When all the bases are occupied by runners, it’s called bases loaded.

bullet ballBullpen – The warmup area, usually just by the side of the playing area is called the bullpen.

bullet ballDugout – The area just by the side of the playing field, where the players from the offense team wait for their turn is called the dugout.

bullet ballDead Ball – When the ball is no longer in play, it is called dead ball.

bullet ballDiamond – The playing area of a softball field, as it is shaped like a diamond goes by this name.

bullet ballFoul Ball – Foul ball is called if the ball is hit into the foul territory on either side of the batter.

bullet ballHome Run – When the ball is hit out of the legal playing area, it is called a home run. As opposed to both baseball and fast-pitch softball, slow-pitch softball employs underhanded pitching of the ball and also needs a smaller playing area. This players primary job is to field any balls that fall in this area.

bullet ballBall – Any ball that is pitched outside the strike zone is called ball. Over the years, softball has risen from being just a sport to a way of life for scores of Americans and people all over the globe. Their job is to catch fly balls, ground balls and line drives.

Common Softball Terms

Rules and Regulations. The relatively simple gameplay also makes it a favorite amongst kids looking to take up a new sport.

third baseThird Baseman

This player is positioned just to the left of third base and covers that area. He must stay at least one base behind him at all times.

The runner has to be on a base until the ball leaves the pitcher’s hand. These 4 bases are diamond-shaped and the area between the bases is known as the infield. A pitch is counted as a strike if the batter misses the ball completely and the catcher positioned behind the batter catches the ball.

A batter will also be deemed out if a high ball hit by him is caught by a player from the fielding team before it touches the ground (this is known as a fly ball).

Unlike baseball, the ball has to be pitched underhand in the sport of softball.

Before pitching the ball, both the pitcher’s hands must be on the ball.

The pitcher must keep both his feet firmly planted on the pitcher’s plate, and while pitching the ball, he must take one step forward.

Each base must be touched by a base runner in the correct order.

A base runner cannot pass another base runner who is in front of him. He also attempts to catch the throws made by the fielders in order to get the base runner running towards the home plate out.

first baseFirst Baseman

This player is positioned just beside first base and is assigned the task of fielding any balls that come in that area.

Fast-pitch Softball and Slow-pitch Softball

Although the rules and playing conditions for both these variants are almost identical, there are a few differences between fast-pitch and slow-pitch softball. It was also an Olympic sport for women, but was dropped from the Olympic games in 1996. As mentioned earlier, there are 9 players on each side in the sport of softball. In an official game there are a total of 7 innings.

There are 4 bases, and the distance between each base is 60 READ MORE

Gambling to me is a form of entertainment, just like going to the cinema is for other people. Feel free to leave any comments below.

If you look through the paper and fancy a certain team then make sure you pick them. Go with your initial instinct.



DON’T ADD TEAMS WHO’S ODDS ARE TOO SHORT. If you can’t walkaway then you shouldn’t be betting.

So there it is. The chances are that if you don’t they will win and the team you chose in their place at the last minute will let you down. Just because they used to play the game means nothing.



Now and again you will see ex footballers giving their advice on who to pick and who to stay clear of. They add very little to your overall winnings and there is always the chance that they can let you down and not even win at all. The reason for this is i have included them before and they have been the only team to let me down on more than one occasion. A pointless bet in my opinion.

It’s easy to get carried away when filling out your betting slip as you watch the odds rise, sometimes you almost convince yourself that you can’t lose. Looking back on it if i was a neutral then i probably wouldn’t have picked them. It’s pointless me betting on the Argentinian league or the Brazilian league as i wouldn’t have a clue what i was doing, So i just normally stick to the English leagues, as it’s easier for me to spot a bet that i think is good value.


Now let me start by telling you that this isn’t some great foolproof betting system that never fails as they simply don’t exist. It’s easy to have have a blinkered view when it comes to your team.



When picking your teams it is often easy to just go for a team to win and forget about the other result, a draw. What this is, is a few tips on what to do and what not to do when betting on football accumulators, no guarantees, no 99.9% accuracy nonsense, just things that in my opinion you NEED to know and realise before even attempting to place your bet. Back your own judgement, nobody elses.

I make a point of never including my beloved Stoke City in any of my accumulators. Here’s my guide:


Now most online bookmakers will guarantee the best odds so i don’t pay too much attention when i read that. When there is money at stake you want to know that you can get hold of the company in question and get the help you require.

If a team is 1/7 to win then i don’t even consider it as there is absolutely no value in them. What i pay attention to is their special offers when signing up and what they offer customers on a regular basis. Also if you don’t fancy a team in the first place then don’t change your mind. You can often talk yourself around to the idea of betting on someone else, and in my experience it only leads to disappointment. The cold, hard fact is that if you’re betting on accumulators then it’s pretty likely that you’re going to lose, however, if you follow the steps above then i believe you will eliminate some of the most common mistakes made when making your selections. Also it’s good to scour the internet to see what people make of a certain bookmakers customer service help lines. If you feel the need to bet on quite a few teams then i’d suggest a low stake as the chances of winning are incredibly small.


If you aren’t enjoying betting on sporting events then you are doing it for the wrong reasons. If you do lose your money then walkaway, it’s as simple as that. Don’t get sucked in by this as they are just as likely (or unlikely) as everyone else to pick a winning accumulator. It’s not a way to make an extra income (although it does feel great when you win) If the enjoyment has gone then it only spells trouble.

Ok so this is an obvious one but it’s so easy to get caught up in the moment. I tend to stick with 4 or 5 teams at the most, even then it’s hard enough. Set yourself a limit before you start betting, a figure that you know you can afford to lose. I always pick a 4 team accumulator of 4 draws amongst my bets as the odds for a match finishing all square rarely goes below 2/1.

When betting on football i only bet on teams and leagues that i know about. There are my top 10 tips for gambling on football accumulators. I thank you for reading and i hope you found this hub helpful READ MORE
