Gambling on Animals

Animals, whether they like it or not, have always been an intricate part of the gambling world.   Sports betting markets include a wide range of betting options on animals, with the most obvious being horse racing, which generates literally billions of dollars around the globe each year.  Punters are able to wager small amounts of money to huge sums of cash, depending on the size of the bankroll, with the chance of great returns if their horse comes in.  In the same vein, greyhound racing is also a huge sport and has an incredible following from around the world.  Man’s best friend, whether a horse or a hound, thus gives gamblers a chance to wager on their favorite sport and make money.

When it comes to online gambling, sports betting at sites such as Paddy Power or Bodog are able to offer markets involving animals from all over the world. If you feel like wagering on a horse race in South Africa, Australia and Japan simultaneously, as well as a greyhound race in another corner of the world, all you have to do is access your favorite sports betting site and enjoy what it has to offer.

But sports betting is not the only gambling market that allows you to combine your love for animals and gambling.  If you’ve checked out the slot games at online casinos lately, you’ll discover that there are literally hundreds of animal themed games there for the taking.  From fishes to frogs, from dogs to dolphins and from snakes to squirrels, there are slot games that cover practically ever type of animal in the kingdom.

Microgaming, for example, has an entire range of animal themed slot games.  If you’re into apes, Monkey’s Money is the game to try out.  Gopher Gold and Track Field Mice cover the rodent population, while Alley Cats is a must for feline friends.

Other animal themed games from this software group include Cashapillar, Dino Mite, Santa Paws, Jungle Jim and Big Kahuna.  Seek them out at a Microgaming powered online casino today and try them out.
