Just one week to go until Christmas so your final chance to pick up on any of the special bonuses on offer from the online gambling companies so for example gambling.ie has spotted that the Ladbrokes casino offer of 50 free spins on the “Santa’s Wild Ride” slot ends in 2 days time or if online poker is your online gambling preference then the Ladbrokes poker iPad offers are also coming to a close. Gambling.ie has also noticed that the Paddy Power casino promotion where you can win an Audi A1 which has been running since December 7th also comes to an end on December 31st and this is open to all players gambling at the online casino and the more you play the more raffle tickets you can earn although one might be enough. The end of the year also usually sees an increase in what are called novelty bets where you can be gambling on TV show winners such as “Strictly Come Dancing” or BBC Sports personality of the year. This is also the time of year for gambling on whether it will snow on Christmas day and now we have the added gambling opportunity of the sex of the Royal baby but be careful where you place this bet as Ladbrokes online gambling has better odds for both a Girl and a Boy than Paddy Power online gambling. Online gambling really is great fun at this time of the year and of course over the holidays we have some great racing and plenty of gambling opportunities. Gambling.ie will carry on into 2013 bringing you all the gambling news and information but first of all we wish all our readers a very prosperous festive season and we wish you some big winners and possible even a slots jackpot to finish the year.
