Roughly six weeks into the new season of NHL ice hockey, we are starting to get some idea of how the sides in the divisions of the Eastern and Western Conferences are shaping up this year. This is important from an ice hockey betting perspective and, already, some of those who placed their bets pre-season may be regretting that decision. The Detroit Red Wings are currently third in the Eastern Conference Atlantic Division, which leaves them quite well-placed for this early stage of the season, but are they a solid bet for anything?
Well, given their current form and the 11/2 bookies’ odds on them for the Atlantic Division, you may well fancy betting on them for that. They also look a decent pick if you are looking for sides to make it past the regular season to compete for the Stanley Cup. If you are considering actually putting money on them to take that trophy you can get odds of 22/1, which again are far from unappealing. They are not hot favorites for it, but then those teams don’t bring the big money if you win, and with the Stanley Cup being a knockout tournament, anything can happen. In this respect it’s like hitting JackpotCity online slots to play one of their ice hockey themed games.
The most popular examples of these, like Break Away, provide fast, furious and gripping entertainment, as well as the chance to play for a coin or a cash jackpot. The combination of reel icons based on the sport (like players, ice rinks and pucks) and audio and visual effects makes them exciting, immersive and unpredictable. Another of the great things about these games is that they are amazingly cheap to bet on, with the minimum betting amount for Break Away being $0.01 for each line, so you don’t have to be any sort of high roller to spend the evening playing them.
