The Brazilian world cup celebration is upon us, and boy what a huge show it is going to be! It's hard to believe it's been 4 years already since the last wonderful world cup experience of south Africa. The black continent tournament was a huge success both on and of the field, and so now Brazil, one of the greatest and celebrated nation, and specifically in relations to soccer is playing host to the biggest soccer tournament in the world.
It is going to be extremely difficult to pre determine who has the edge in the world cup in brazil and anyone who will try some World Cup betting action, will need all the help he can get. I'm not sure what the Vegas odds makers sees it, but any soccer fan in the world realize that anything can happen. From traditionally strong teams like Germany, France Italy and off course the champion Spain, to the host Brazil, a soccer powerhouse and it's next door neighbor Argentina, with world class star Leo Messi will try to win at Brazil of all places. And I'm not even talking about other south Americas teams, or African teams, or far east teams.
It always seems as if the host always has a nice edge when it comes to world cup, or any sports event for that matter. The big question is, if a most definitely talented Brazilian team can take advantage of the fact that thy will get huge support from it’s home fans, will indeed translate into going the distance in the tourney?
After all the politics, the incredible contractions and infrastructure, the problems, demonstrations, drama and tears, we have come to the final stop, and in a matter of about 2 month, the greatest show on the earth will begin, and the eye of the world will look to Brazil once again.

This year has seen a great many new titles released for the enjoyment of every online casino lover. If you've been checking the latest online casino reviews, you may have noticed the stream of brand new titles hitting most online casinos. Today, we will be talking a look at some of the best new offer of themed slots, since this particular category gets all the major goods when it comes to new themes and innovative experiences.
1. First on our list is Dracula - the new slot from Net Entertainment software. Net Ent aren't strangers when it comes to borrowing from the bloodsuckers (as seen in the slot with the same name), but this is their first venture with the "original" vampire. This 5-reels and 40 pay-lines slot is a stylish recreation of the famous story about the Count and his lady love Mina. Bats are everywhere as expected, and this stylish animation brings about the bonus feature. The slot also includes stacked wild symbols, free spins rounds and more.
2. Evils The King Lives Slot by WMS is a colorful and quite authentic portrayal of the King himself, featuring several of his most famous melodies and a theme that is reminiscent of the golden days of music (i.e. the 50's). Unique amongst the plethora of competitors, this 11 reels and 80 pay-lines video slot has many bonus features, including free spins that can be activated on two separate occasions, a jukebox feature which rewards you with up to 25 times your stake depending on the song being played (along with additional free spins). It is a must play for Elivis and music fans alike.
3. With the Avengers gaining planetary success, it is no wonder Thor, the demi-god of Thunder gets his own game by 1x2 Gaming. The stylish and surprisingly up-beat 5-reels and 25 pay-lines slot named Thor - Stormlord is packed with excellent graphics and bonus features. The hammer Mjolniir acts as a wild symbol and a free spins feature is available once more Freyja/horse scatter symbols appear on the reels. A bonus game is also implemented, but a rather simpler one which grants money prizes (doubled if you play with free spins).
4. Deep under the sea is where Nemo's Voyage Slot, another new themed game by WMS takes place. With an underwater world seen from Nemo's trade mark submarine, this 5-reel and 40 pay-line slot is unique in many ways. First off it contains several different wilds, including stacked wilds, wild reels, pressured wilds (a new mechanic introduced in the game) as well as 2x and 3x wilds. As Nemo's submarine (the Nautilus) dives further into the ocean's depths with each spin, the pressure increases and so does the prizes. In this complex system with 2 different sets of spins and pressure valves, it is important to keep track of everything in order to win big.
5. Last on this list is The Invisible Man by NetEnt and boy, did we keep the best for last. While the game itself is a more or less a standard 5-reel and 20 pay-lines slot, the experience is something you will treasure long past your game sessions. It is a stylish recreation of the 1933 movie of the same name, with some of the best atmospheric sounds and soundtrack to date. The game contains plethora of bonus features like Police Spins and Free Spins, each featuring a different set of rules where you can multiply your winnings. It is a real ride of a slot that you should most definitely check out.

After a slow start, Warrington Wolves are starting to regain some form and look as though they could compete for a place in the Grand Final at the end of the regular Super League season. Tony Smith’s side are currently fifth in the table but, with favourable fixtures in the next few weeks, they have an opportunity to snatch fourth place and guarantee a play-off berth.
On their day, they can beat anyone
Warrington’s main problem this season has been inconsistency, but they have shown on multiple occasions this season that they are more than capable of beating the best teams in the league. The Wolves have done the league double over leaders Leeds Rhinos and recently thrashed Wakefield Wildcats 80-0 at the Halliwell Jones Stadium. Tony Smith must be frustrated at their lack of consistency, but will believe that they stand a great chance of challenging for honours this year if they can continue to improve their ball handling.
In recent years, they have been excellent in knockout competition
Warrington have been phenomenal in knockout competitions throughout Smith’s reign at the club. Since 2009, the Wolves have reached three Challenge Cup finals and have won all three matches, while they have also reached two Super League Grand Finals in back-to-back years – but lost both events to Leeds Rhinos and Wigan Warriors. Many have realised that it would be foolish to write Warrington off in what is essentially a knockout format, and betfair have priced the Wolves at 5/1 at the time of writing to go on and win the Grand Final this season.
They lack leadership without Lee Briers and Michael Monaghan
However, the Wolves still lack a clear leader on the field as they struggle to adapt to life without two of their most influential players. Chris Bridge and Stefan Ratchford have attempted to fill the void, but they fail to inspire confidence among the supporters. If Warrington are going to challenge for honours on a regular basis, they must replace these two players with influential, experienced characters. Daryl Clark, last season’s Man of Steel, has been superb so far, but does not command the respect of his peers as Briers used to.
Warrington may find it tough to reach this year’s Grand Final as Leeds, St. Helens and Wigan are all playing well and are well placed to challenge for honours this year. However, Smith’s side cannot be written off and are likely to make the play-offs, so only time will tell. They certainly have match winners in their squad, but they may lack leadership when the going gets tough.
