Betting is big business and these days it’s common to find sports clubs backed by online casinos. In no particular order, here are five of the Top EPL Clubs With Casino Sponsors.
The EPL has amassed fans all over the world, especially in Asia where multiple clubs have huge followings tuning in to every single match. Asian fans who want to relax during the off-season have many great places to play online. Zodiac Casino accepts Asian gamers and offers a dizzying array of the top Microgaming games to enjoy, including the best-known progressive jackpot slot of them all: Mega Moolah. Or you can delve into Immortal Romance if you take a more sanguine view of slots. Plus, there’s a wide assortment of blackjack, poker, and roulette games to try.
Manchester City is the reigning EPL champion and has a good chance of taking the 2021-22 title as well (they top the table at the time of writing). From the 1904 FA Cup to last year’s EPL title, Manchester City has one of the strongest records in English football history, and recent years have very much been a purple patch for the side. In the last decade, they’ve won half the EPL titles, and the FA Cup twice. Last year also saw them coming agonizingly close to finally winning the Champions League, but they had to settle for being runners-up.
Among Manchester City’s various sponsors is Marathon Bet, a betting website that not only caters to the needs of sports fans but also has plenty of casino gaming entertainment too. There are both regular and live versions of classic table games, and if you prefer slots then there are all-time smash hits such as Book of Dead by Play’N Go and Divine Fortune by NetEnt to try.
Arsenal’s achievements have been many over the years, with the apex undoubtedly being the Invincible season which saw the club not only crushes all opposition for a dominant domestic title but do so without losing a single match. That was just one of the 13 league titles the side has claimed over the years. No club has been more successful in the FA Cup, with Arsenal winning the trophy on no fewer than 14 occasions. And in 1993-94 they won the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup.
Like all the top EPL teams, Arsenal has a lot of sponsors, and one of these is Sportsbet.io, a betting website particularly well-suited to fans of cryptocurrency. The casino has a live dealer section that combines the convenience of online gaming with the atmosphere of playing in person and has slots, regular table games, and virtual sports to enjoy too.
Tottenham Hotspur is one of the most recognizable clubs in the world, partly because it’s got such an impressive history (going back all the way to 1882). Silverware came along in the form of the 1901 FA Cup and six decades later the team won the league and FA Cup double. Spurs also broke new ground in 1963 when they became the first English side to win the European Cup Winners’ Cup, and in 1972 became the winners of the first-ever UEFA Cup. They’ve won the FA Cup on eight occasions and two league titles.
Spurs fans who enjoy a bet can do so at the club’s sponsor’s site: William Hill. Famous in the UK as a bookie (sportsbook), the site also has casino games, including a variety of both live and regular roulette games, blackjack, poker, and baccarat. Slots fans have reels aplenty to spin, with a popular choice being the Age of the Gods series by Playtech.
Leicester City stunned the world of football with their incredible EPL triumph in 2015-16, an event so unlikely it had odds of literally thousands to one (and made many a fan a pretty penny). Since that time, Leicester City has been one of the big hitters of the EPL, although they have yet to achieve the feat a second time. Leicester has made a number of appearances in the Europa League in recent years, although it appears they’re out of contention in 2021-22. On the plus side, they have reached the semi-finals in the Europa Conference League this year.
As a record-breaking and odds-defying team, it’s perhaps unsurprising that one of Leicester City’s sponsors is a betting site. Pari Match offers both sports and casino betting for players, and there’s an impressive array of software firms contributing to the games. These include Play’N Go, creators of Book of Dead; NetEnt, makers of Starburst; and Microgaming, inventors of the Wheel of Wishes progressive jackpot slot.
West Ham United
Founded way back in the 19th century and sporting a distinctive claret and blue livery for more than a hundred years, West Ham United is one of the biggest clubs in English football history. At the time of writing (tail end of the 2021-22 season), they’re still battling to get into European competition with rivals such as Spurs and Arsenal. In the preceding season, West Ham exceeded expectations and managed to snag themselves 6th in the EPL, which brought with it entry to the Europa League.
Historically, the club has never won the domestic title despite its longevity, but West Ham has claimed the FA Cup on three occasions and won the 1964–65 European Cup Winners’ Cup.
Being a major name in the EPL means there are plenty of sponsors for West Ham, and one of these is the betting site BetWay. As might be expected for a sports partner, the site offers betting on football in England, Spain, Germany, and elsewhere, in addition to a plethora of other markets such as tennis, rugby, and motorsport. BetWay also features a casino wing where players have a great range of top games from leading developer Microgaming. These include massive jackpot games like Mega Moolah, and popular titles using the 243 ways to win mechanics such as Thunderstruck II.
And that wraps up our look at five of the Top EPL Clubs With Casino Sponsors. As always, only bet what you can afford to lose.
