I don’t know about you but I’m looking forward to watching some cricket over the next few weeks with the ICC Cricket World Cup starting in a couple of days. It has been 23 years since the World Cup was last hosted in Australia and New Zealand so it’s been quite a wait. I don’t think I’ll make my way down to Sydney to watch a match but all the Australian matches will be on free to air tv. There’s also a pirate channel online that I’m hoping will show all of the matches but I’ll let you find that yourselves ;-) [Read more...]

At the recent Crown annual general meeting he said “the punters are killing us!” [Read more...]

Ladbrokes $3 Million Dollar MegaPick Bet

$3 million mega pick bet

Did everyone have their $3 million dollar bet on with Ladbrokes today? For $3 I thought it was worth joining them just to have a go. I’m betting the chances are better than winning the lottery.
