Underdogs Wisconsin and Villanova Seeing Action but Florida Gators Clear Favorites at March Madness College Basketball Bets Begin

AllYouBet Bookmakers Keeping an Eye on March Madness Underdogs with Bonuses and Free BetsApparently US college basketball bettors have got bookmakers scratching their heads. For some reason a couple of underdogs,  Wisconsin (+2500) and  Villanova (+2000) have been getting a lot of action as the American college basketball title showdown begins this week.

“Wichita State (+1000) and the Michigan Spartans (+2000) are two teams that players seem to like as well,” said an AllYouBet bookmaker. “Syracuse Orange (+1400) has also seen some action, although the team has struggled recently.”

No surprise most bets are on the Florida Gators (+450) since they're so clearly favored. Wisconsin was defeated last weekend by Nebraska so their popularity with bettors could change. Villanova scored over 60 points in all but one of its 31 games in the regular season and recorded over 80 points on 14 different occasions.

The Final Four tournament will culminate when the men’s college basketball title is decided April 7th at AT&T Stadium, North Texas.

American-style online sportsbook has two generous offers during this busy sportsbetting season – an up to $100 bonus and a $100 free bet. Basketball fans can claim a 50% bonus, up to $100, by entering coupon code MADNESS14 when they deposit. Everyone that wagers $1000 or more on NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball at minimum odds of – 200 /1.5 will qualify for a $100 free bet. A special coupon code will be emailed to eligible customers on April 8th.

Attractive odds on both NCAA and NBA are posted under the “Basketball” tab.

Slotland Mobile Casino Player Hits Jackpot in Bed, Wins $159,357 on Ice Queen Slot

Slotland First Mobile Jackpot Winner Hits Progressive in Bed on Ice Queen Slot GameWith more and more players playing on their smartphones and tablets lately, it was only a matter of time before someone hit Slotland's site-wide progressive jackpot while playing on a mobile device.  Last week, Johnathon E. won $159,357 playing the Ice Queen slot game on his cell phone. He was in bed at the time.

The winner said that although Ice Queen is his current favourite game,he’s also been playing the new Treasure Island slot quite a bit lately too. Slotland's first  mobile jackpot  winner says the first thing he’s going to buy with his winnings is a new phone.


 “I’ve been wanting an iPhone 5 and now I don’t think I need to deny myself any longer!” said the excited jackpot winner.

 He also said he’s been trying to find a nice retirement community for his elderly mother and this win gives him more options.

This isn’t the first Ice Queen jackpot winner. Just before Christmas, Charles N. won $182,782 playing the deluxe slot game.

“It’s not just a coincidence,” laughed Slotland manager Michael Hilary. “Ice Queen is our most popular game right now. That and the new Treasure Island. With so many people playing it I’m not surprised it’s produced another big winner so soon. Of course, could be that it’s just a loose and lucky slot!”

A favorite in the instant play online casino, Ice Queen is also one of more than a dozen mobile slots that have been especially enhanced for iPhone, Android and Blackberry.
