This summer is due to be a big one for sports fans with a packed out calendar of events. UK residents in particular will be at the centre of the action as the Olympics take place in London while English football fans will be cheering on their heroes in Poland and Ukraine.
When it comes to online gambling it's obvious that sportsbooks will be running a number of promotions around these events as well as offering bets on them. But for online casinos the connection is slightly less obvious.
Nonetheless many casinos are already steaming ahead with a selection of promotions that are themed around the London Olympics and Euro 2012.
We've already brought you news of Genting Casino's Reel Race to Gold which, as you may be able to guess, is an Olympic themed slots promotion. But now our attention turns to the European Football Championships which are due to start on Friday.
Ladbrokes Casino's Guess the Goals
The first that we've come across is the Guess the Goals promotion at Ladbrokes. Here you have to deposit and turnover £10 or more before June 8 on Shoot, Soccer Safari and/or Avalon then guess the total amount of goals that will be scored at Euro 2012.
The 50 players whose guesses are closest to what turns out to be the magic number will receive £50 cash. This will be added to your Ladbrokes Casino account and can be removed immediately if you so desire. Winners will be announced on July 2 following the tournaments final.
PartyCasino's Football Fever
PartyCasino has never been the type to miss out on a promotion opportunity and here's proof of that.
The Football Fever promotion begins on June 8 and continues for the duration of the tournament until July 2. There are two 'halves' to this promotion with the first seeing players who earn enough points by playing slots receiving prizes.
The 'second half' means that some lucky players will benefit from free cash, bonuses, reload bonuses and points at random as they spend time and play in the casino.
PartyCasino have really gone all out for this competition as they've even added a new football themed slot called Score!
