Free money?

by isport

It’s said there’s no such thing as a free lunch in life, but also that you shouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth. Both these old adages are both right in their own ways; when someone is seemingly giving you for nothing it’s usually with an ulterior motive if it’s on a commercial basis anyway.

Of course, a lot depends on how smart you are and how self-disciplined.

At the moment, for example, all new players registering to play at 32Red online casino will receive a straight $10 free, absolutely no strings attached. There’s no need for a deposit, you simply get $10 in casino chips put on your account straight away, courtesy of the house. Then you start playing the cards or rolling the dice.

Now of course, the 32Red casino isn’t stupid; it doesn’t give money away with an altruistic motive in mind – so it’s all going to depend on just how lucky you are when you decide to play whatever your chosen game happens to be.

And with all chance-based games in any casino the world over – the odds are stacked against you due to the house edge; the statistical margin that puts the games slightly in the house’s favour.

But we all know this to begin with before we start playing and, well, free cash is fee cash at the end of the day. So there’s really nothing to lose.

So what’s this great offer got to do with Aussie football I hear you ask?

Well the interesting thing here is that 32Red also runs a sports book so if you happen to get lucky in the casino with the free cash – you might well be able to take your winnings on and re-invest them in the Socceroos for the forthcoming World Cup.

Basically, the whole world expects Australia not to qualify for the knockout stages and it’s true – it does look a very big ask with Holland, holders Spain and dark horses Chile in our group. But it’s certainly not impossible. And Coach Ange Postecoglou has gambled on youth with the 30 man preliminary squad.

Postecoglou has named young players including James Troisi, Josh Brillante, Adam Taggart, and the hitherto uncapped Ben Halloran – with a total of ten 10 players aged 22 or less. In fact, the squad’s overall average age is just 25½ - compared with 28.4 for the 2101 South Africa World Cup campaign.

Australia are almost 5-1 with 32Red to get out of the group – but the youngsters may surprise a few people.

Realistically, it’s the games against Holland and Chile which are the big two. A draw against the Dutch and a win over Chile could see Australia progress after which anything is possible; so fingers firmly crossed and if you play your cards right – there may be nothing to lose.
