The esports revolution

The esports revolution

In recent years, the world of competitive gaming – often known as esports – has massively grown in popularity. Once upon a time, esports players were seen as eccentric geeks, but they're increasingly being recognised as practitioners of a serious sport. Unsurprisingly, this change has been accompanied by a huge rise in the popularity of betting on these games. More and more people are realising that this is a type of betting that is both exciting in its own right and refreshingly different from traditional sports betting.

What games are most popular?

Although a variety of games are played competitively, there are three which particularly stand out and account for over 80% of the esports market between them. In third place is Dota 2, a battle arena style game in which players control a hero who fights on their behalf to try to destroy opponents' bases. Next comes CSGO, short for "Counter-Strike: Global Offensive", which is a first-person shooter (FPS) where players fight as either Terrorist or Counter-Terrorists. The top esports game right now is League of Legends, another battle arena game.

Why bet on esports?

The fast-moving nature of esports can this a thrilling way to bet. An increasing number of online bookmakers are now offering esports betting, making the marketplace increasingly competitive and offering plenty of opportunities for bettors to find good odds and bets that suit their preferences. Many esports tournaments are streamed live via platforms such as Twitch, adding an extra layer of interest. With gamers constantly striving to find new strategies, keeping up with the latest trends can really help you.

Why choose PayPal betting?

It's the world's most popular e-wallet company. You may well already have an account, making it really easy to use it for betting on esports. A large number of betting and casino websites accept it, though this may vary according to where in the world you are located. For example, in some jurisdictions you may only bet with your wallet balance, rather than funding your bets with a credit card. Whatever the case, it is a fast, simple and secure way to bet; PayPal has been around for around 20 years, which should give you peace of mind.

How to use PayPal for betting on esports

If you don't already have an account, it's easy to create one and registration is simple. Just make sure you choose a very secure password. Once you're up and running, you can add funds to your balance. There are several ways you can do this, ranging from bank wire to a transfer from another user of the service. Then, create a profile on your chosen betting site. All reputable sites will have help pages showing how to deposit funds for betting – and how to withdraw if you need to. With many sites you can be ready to bet on esports in just a few minutes.

Giving yourself the edge

As with other types of betting, the more you know about the game you're betting on, the better your chances. You want to waste as little time as possible filling out online forms, and using PayPal betting makes funding bets – and collecting any winnings – quick and smooth. You may have to wait 24 hours to see the funds in your account. Also, remember to check for welcome bonuses when deciding which company to use. Check out the link if you want to know more about how esports betting with PayPal work and how to get started.

How to become a casino twitcher

How to become a casino twitcher

Twitch is one of the most popular streaming services in the world and a great way to boost your profile and following. One of the great things about it is that while not being absolutely simple, it is relatively straightforward to set up if you know the required steps. Here we detail these for you to get you up and running and streaming your casino exploits via Twitch. Streaming casino games can be quite costly and it is not always easy to make money from it. A retired casino streamer, Casinomon, just made an interview about the underject where he passionate talks about his experience. All questions and answers are in English so just scroll down a bit if you wants to read it.

Hardware and Internet Requirements

Low-quality service will cost you viewers so the better your internet connection and the more powerful your computer the more successful your streaming experience will be. With regards to hardware, go for at least 8GB of RAM and a good quality processor like an i7 920. For your internet connection go with download and upload speeds of at least 5MB, though more is better, and make sure to physically connect your computer to the router rather than use a wireless connection. This will help eliminate dropped frames and increase the quality of the connection. 

Software and Accounts You will Need

First things first - you will need to sign up to Twitch. Spend some time coming up with a username that is both memorable and meaningful, and one that you can use on other social media platforms to promote yourself. Make sure to check that it is available across all platforms and isn't already in use. The next step is obtaining a Stream Key to stream on Twitch. This can be found in the dashboard section of Twitch and keep a copy of the key for later use. Along with a Twitch account, you will, of course, need an account with a casino which you probably already have if you are planning on streaming your casino gaming. Next, you will need software that streams the casino gaming on Twitch. One good open source solution for this is Open Broadcast Software (OBS), which can be downloaded to your computer. Another handy piece of software is Streamlabs which syncs with your account on Twitch and allows the user to display things to viewers such as Donations, Hosts, and Follows to increase interactivity with them. Having a chat room on your stream also helps with interactivity and can be added by downloading and integrating NightDev KapChat with your OBS. 

Having a Schedule

Once you have all of the hardware and software elements in place it is time to create a solid, yet realistic schedule. Creating a schedule that you stick to and that viewers can rely on is one of the key factors in being successful on Twitch. If you can prove your consistency it showcases your professionalism and dedication to gaming. Your viewers will trust and they will appreciate knowing that you are on when you say you will be and will lead to more viewers over time. Trust is critical, and one of the great things about Twitch is the interactive and supportive nature of its viewers.

A beginners guide on how to bet on slot machines

A beginners guide on how to bet on slot machines

Slots are the most popular game in online casinos. Accessible, straightforward, and bursting with vivid graphics and music, slots can also reward you with understantial cash prizes.

It’s these prizes that have earned slots a reputation among savvy players as being the most interesting way to win seriously big.

However, venturing into an online gaming area for the first time can be daunting, especially if real money is involved. Wising up in advance can therefore be helpful.

So, what are slots, and how do you play them?

What are slots?

Online slots continue the iconic tradition of the historic machines that first graced the casino floors in 1895.

The game involves matching symbols in order to win a prize, and today’s games involve digital bonuses in the form of mini-games and free spins.

How to play

Slot machines are always evolving. However, they follow a basic pattern of reels and paylines. There are sometimes three reels, but most slot machines have five.

The reels have around 10-15 different symbols, and the aim is to align these symbols across all five reels in order to create a payline.

Slots typically have around 10-25 possible paylines and sometimes up to 4096 (or in rare cases even more!). This means that it’s not always a case of having to get a line of matching symbols in order to win. Rather, the aim is to find one of the winning combinations. In today’s world, these are more dynamic and creative than ever.

How to begin

You can click to visit the ‘Paytable’ (also sometimes simply labelled as ‘info’), which will give you a guide to the slot machine that you want to play. The paytable shows winning paylines and their associated prizes.

The paytable will also explain which Random Number Generator (RNG) it is using, and the Return to Player (RTP) percentage. This shows you how much of the win is yours, and how much the casino will take as its margin. Most online casinos offer a healthy RTP of around 95-98% on their slots.

How to bet

The side of the game-screen will have a list of available paylines. The more paylines you play, the greater the chance of a win.

Unless it’s a free spin, each of the paylines requires you to place a bet using virtual coins. Most online casinos allow you to bet between 1 and 10 coins for each payline.

Some slots have fixed paylines. Fixed payline slots are popular because the payouts tend to be larger and the probability of winning higher. However, as they don’t give you a choice about how much money to put down, it can feel like the bets are quite high.

It’s a case of preference. Some people prefer to choose their own coin-payline combinations, while most like to roll with the preferred standard settings.

Hitting the spin

It’s as simple as that! One button to set the wheels moving, and another click on it to bring them to a stop.

If you win, some games will give you the option of doubling your prize. This isn’t done by more spins. Instead, you are offered a simple bonus game of double of nothing, usually this is from a mini game of red or black.

Any insider tips?

Online casinos have to use RNGs that guarantee fair play. This means that everyone should be in with an equal chance of winning.

However, it’s always worthwhile checking out online guides, many of which offer reviews and tips for specific games.

Most casinos will let you try before you buy in, so that you can get a feel for the slot machine before you play for real cash.

Wilds, scatters, and bonuses

Throwing fortune in favour of the player, wilds, scatters, and bonuses up your chances of winning.

Players can add a wild to a flagging payline in order to turn it into a winning combination.

Scatters are random, and if you hit one it pays out regardless of the payline.

Hitting scatters will usually trigger a bonus. The bonus round is always unique for the specific slot you are playing. Often the bonus game is free spins of some kind but sometimes machines have something different. It is always a good idea to check what bonus game the slot is offering before you start hunting it.

Other bonuses

Online slots are packed with extra bonuses. Pick ‘em, click-me, cascades, and avalanches are all widely used. These mare mini-games that allow you to collect prizes.

Free spins

Free spins are a routine offering in the world of digital casinos. They are a great way to try out new slots, or simply to indulge in a bit of on-the-house fun.

Anything else?

Nope! The great thing about slots is that they’re designed to be idiot-proof. The games are crafted to be entirely intuitive, meaning that they guide you as you play.

Once you’ve got the hang of it, you’ll quickly learn your favourite games and techniques, and the rest is the spinning reel of history.

How to Get Better at Sports Betting

How to Get Better at Sports Betting

How to Get Better at Sports Betting?

In its nature, gambling (sports betting included) is a risky way of earning some money. It’s not that easy as many people think, not even for avid sports fans. However, sports betting can be learned – just like businesses ask companies such as Miami based SEO agency Probella for help on improving their traffic and sales, you can use betting guides and tips to improve your knowledge of sports betting.

You know how they say – practice makes perfect. Well, before you start with practice, you’ll need to learn the fundamentals of sports betting first.

Pick Your Favorite Sports and Learn the Basics

First things first – before you sign-up at an online bookie, you need to pick the sport you’re planning to bet on and start following it in depth. If it's football, you need to start tracking stats. This includes the possession a team has had in the last 5-6 games, their offensive and defensive record, their record home and away and other statistical data.

Take a look at their goals and best performers as well – all of this should help you determine what bet you need to place.

The Favorite Doesn’t Always Win

The first thing you need to learn about sports betting is that the favorite isn’t always the obvious choice. Although these teams win most of the time, they can fail when no one expects them to. For example, Barcelona and Real Madrid are juggernauts that are difficult to be stopped, but teams such as Athletic Bilbao or Real Sociedad have been known to upset the favorites, and that should be taken into account.

Barcelona has only recently broken the curse of Anoeta (Sociedad’s home ground) after more than 10 years, which shows that favorites often have a problem playing smaller teams.

Set a Budget and Plan

If you want to be successful at betting (or gambling for that matter), you need to stick to your daily, weekly or monthly budget. Don’t go out spending all the money you have in your pocket – just create a budget and staking plan to prevent going bankrupt.

A staking plan will help you determine the ideal size of each wager according to your pre-determined budget. It’s a nice technique that will help you avoid going over the budget and eventually fall down in debt.

Be Selective

When creating your slip, be selective – your chances to win are much better if you pick only a few selections. Think small, not big when it comes to sports betting and take your budget into account. Sure, there’s more money to be won on 10+ matches with high odds, but the chances that you’re going to win are next to nothing.

Master the Markets and Go for the Less Obvious

The variety of markets at bookies can be confusing for many punters. They offer more than the standard action and often ‘hide’ great odds which are usually overlooked. This is why it’s a good idea to learn everything you can about the different markets before picking the less obvious ones.

Less obvious markets such as Player to Score offer nice odds and are a better option than a standard 1x2 bet most of the time – all you need to do is follow the trail of statistics.

Grand Slam Tennis

Two Teams to Bet on Next Year in the EPL

Grand Slam Tennis

The tennis grand slam season reaches its gripping finale at the end of August, with the US Open. The competition has been intense but who has gained supremacy on the tennis circuit so far this year and who will finish the year on top?

Australian Open (15th- 28th January)

The first Grand Slam of the New Year came from down under, in Melbourne, Australia. Roger Federer and Serena Williams were the defending champions heading into the event. The one main difference between this tournament and the other three top tournaments is that this Grand Slam is the most gruelling with the weather conditions- as it is played in the height of the Australian Summer

Federer did indeed successfully defend his title and went on to win his sixth Australian open title beating Marin Cilic 6-2, 6-7, 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 in the final. While, Caroline Wozniacki took Williams’ crown by beating Simona Halep 7-6, 3-6, 6-4 in the women’s final.

French Open (27th May- 10th June)

The stars had to wait a few months before locking horns with their rivals again, as the French Open took place nearly four months after the curtain raiser for the season. The picturesque Rolland Garros played host once again to the French Grand Slam, and this is the only Slam which is played on a clay surface. The king of clay and last year’s winner was Spaniard, Rafael Nadal. The women's champion heading into this year’s event was Jelena Ostapenko. 

Nadal had won the French Open ten times, an achievement that has or never will be equalled, last year he beat Stan Wawrinka in straight sets in the final. 

Because of the dominance of Nadal on clay there seemed a feeling of somewhat expectation and that was fulfilled when he fired his way to an eleventh French Open title, comprehensively beating youngster Dominic Thiem 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 . On the women’s side of the draw, Halep got retribution following her Australian Open loss when she beat American Sloane Stephens 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 to win her maiden Grand Slam.

Wimbledon (2nd-15th July)

The biggest and best Grand Slam of the year took place in mid-summer at London's Wimbledon. The grass tournament is the most spectacular of the year and the history that comes with it reflects with the importance that the players rank it. 

The previous year’s extravaganza was won by Roger Federer- for the record eighth time and the women's champion was Garbine Muguruza. British hopes were dashed in the men's quarter finals as Murray was knocked out by American, Sam Querrey. But, in the women's half of the draw, Johanna Konta shocked the world as she blasted her way through to the semi-finals, the furthest any British women has made it at Wimbledon since Virginia Wade in 1978.

British hopes were dashed pretty quickly this year after Murray withdrew and British number two, Kyle Edmund was dumped out by Novak Djokovic. The Serb went on to win the men’s final beating South African Kevin Anderson 6-2, 6-2, 7-6 in a comprehensive final. The ladies singles was far less predictable when German Angelique Kerber defeated the legendary Serena Williams 6-3, 6-3 in what was meant to be her fairytale return.

US Open (27th August- 9th September)

The final Grand Slam of the year comes from New York City and the US Open. The Grand Slam played on a hard court at Flushing Meadows is the most lucrative of the season and all players will be looking for the millions of dollars that come with winning the title.

Wawrinka and Angelique Kerber were the 2016 winners, but for the first time in Grand Slam history, neither of them were able to defend their titles at the 2017 competition as they were both out with injuries. 

With both the crowns vacant and up for grabs, they were claimed by the prolific Rafael Nadal and up-and-coming American Sloane Stephens. They will both be returning for next year’s tournament but both will be up against tough competition. 

Nadal is among the favourites in the betting for the men’s title but the current market leader is Novak Djokovic with Roger Federer squeezed between them. Bookmakers feel like Serena Williams will finally get her fairytale ending as she is the clear favourite in the women’s market ahead of Angelique Kerber.

Two Teams to Bet on Next Year in the EPL

Two Teams to Bet on Next Year in the EPL

The English Premier League is going from strength to strength in recent years and even teams outside the top 4 have managed to strengthen themselves with some top quality signings. This is as a direct result of the equal division of the TV rights money to all of the clubs.

Two Teams to Bet on Next Year in the EPL

This has, in turn, had a massive effect on the performances of previously mid-table clubs such as Burnley, Leicester and Tottenham, which have gone from perennial underachievers to regular Champions League and Europa League contenders.

In this article we will look at two smart choices from the EPL for your next year’s betting slips. These two clubs are not title favourites such as Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool or Chelsea, which means that the odds for their victories will most definitely be quite high.

Newcastle United

Newcastle got promoted from the Championship under Rafael Benitez and this season they have managed to stave off relegation, which was their primary target. However, it seems like this Newcastle United squad has so much more potential in itself that fans will no longer have to worry about relegation and will instead turn their focus towards a top table finish next season.

This is hugely dependant on whether they can keep hold of key players such as Jamaal Lascelles and Kenedy, but even if they don’t do that, Rafael Benitez seems to have clear ideas of what he wants and with a top manager such as him Newcastle will certainly be in the Top 10 or Top 8 next season, something for which you can get huge odds right now. In addition, backing them week in week out might be the smartest thing that you are going to do next season.

Watford

Ever since the Pozzo family took over Watford, they turned them from Championship also-rans into a Top 10 EPL side. Their tenure has not been without controversy though, as some of their members were implicated of illegal gambling in the past and they are also often in hot water over their ownership of different clubs throughout Europe simultaneously.

However, the family has claimed on more than one occasion that their match-fixing days are over and that with the strict regulations of betting and online casino establishments it is almost impossible to do anything illegal these days.

This means that the Pozzo family has learnt its lesson and this is also obvious from the fact that all they do now is invest in some top quality signings such as Abdoulaye Doucoure, Roberto Pereyra, and the supremely talented Brazilian Richarlison after whom the whole of England has gone crazy.

These players can take a game by the scruff of the neck and win it singlehandedly and if they stay at Vicarage Road they will ensure that backing Watford to win both home and away next season will be a very profitable thing to do for all profit seeking punters.

Australia’s preparations for the World Cup off to a bad start

Australia’s preparations for the World Cup off to a bad start

Australia’s preparations for the World Cup off to a bad start

Australia is set to rub shoulders with some of the world’s best when it comes to football. As such the onus is on Australia to ensure that they prepare well for the tournament in order to give themselves a chance of avoiding embarrassing defeats and even causing some upsets. The team’s preparations for the football extravaganza started this past week when the team took on Norway in a match Australia was widely expected to win including various casinos online that tipped the Socceroos’ to win. Things, however, did not go to plan as the preparations started with a defeat.

Australia vs Norway review

The new manager for the Australian national team, Bert Van Marwijk who led the Netherlands to a runners-up finish at the 2010 World Cup selected the familiar faces in his first squad. The usual suspects such as Tim Cahill, Aaron Mooy, and Matthew Ryan were included while he gave debuts to Trent Sainsbury and Matthew Jurman.

The first twenty minutes was the perfect start for Bert Van Marwijk as Australia controlled the midfield and were rewarded with a goal in the 19th minute that was scored by Jackson Irvine. The joy did not last for a long time however as Norway found a way back to score four times without a reply and win the match by four goals to one. Ola Kamara from LA Galaxy in the MLS bagged a hat-trick while Tore Reginiussen also put his name on the score sheet.

Speaking after the match, Bert Van Marwijk said that the team is not ready for the World Cup. He acknowledged that he knew that Australia was not ready even before he accepted the job but said there is ample time for the team to rectify the mistakes they made in the game. He was particularly disappointed with the defence which he said committed a lot of mistakes. He also expressed reservations about the way the midfield failed to control the game. Playing with an extra man in midfield, Bert Van Marwijk said he expected his midfield players to do better and control the game.

However, Bert Van Marwijk was optimistic as he said that if you need to know your players, the best time to do that is in defeat. He said that the game gave him a chance to know his players a bit more.

Upcoming matches

Australia still has three more matches to play before their World Cup adventure starts and Bert Van Marwijk knows that he has a lot of work on his hands if he is to guide Australia to a respectable finish in the World Cup. Australia’s next match is against Colombia, a team that is riding high from a comeback 3-2 win over France. Columbia’s stars have also been in form ahead of the World Cup and this is going to be a stern test for Australia when they come up against world class players such as James Rodriguez and Radamao Falcao.

Last 16 a realistic target for Socceroos after World Cup 2018 draw

Last 16 a realistic target for Socceroos after World Cup 2018 draw

Last 16 a realistic target for Socceroos after World Cup 2018 draw

After a gruelling qualifying campaign that involved some serious nail-biting and air miles, the draw for the World Cup 2018 finals in Russia saw Australia placed in Group C, along with France, Denmark and Peru providing the opposition.

The Socceroos will be appearing in their fifth World Cup finals and their fourth in succession. The aim in Russia will be to replicate the success of 2006, which was the only time to date that Australia have managed to navigate their way past the group stage, only to go out in the last 16 to a controversial Francesco Totti penalty deep into stoppage-time against the eventual champions Italy.

Following the group draw for World Cup 2018, you can now back Australia at odds of 300-1 with Centrebet to win the tournament. You’d have to be hugely optimistic to believe that the Socceroos can go all the way in Russia, but there will be a vast array of other World Cup bets available over the coming months ahead of the finals and it will be well worth checking the Australian free bets site for any promotional free bets offered on various World Cup 2018 betting markets and individual games.

It has to be said that Guus Hiddink’s squad back in 2006 contained some top quality players, including Mark Viduka, Harry Kewell, Mark Schwarzer, Lucas Neill, Brett Emerton, Tony Popovic, Craig Moore, John Aloisi and Mark Bresciano.

That squad also featured a 26-year old Tim Cahill and 20-year old Mark Milligan, both of whom (aging limbs notwithstanding) will probably be on the plane to Russia a dozen years later.

The ‘Golden Generation’ of 2006 is now but a fading memory, but there is still quality in the Aussie ranks in the likes of Aaron Mooy, Matt Ryan and Tom Rogic. The problem is that there is nowhere near the same depth of talent available today.

One man who won’t be with the squad is Ange Postecoglou, who quit as coach within a week of steering the national team past Honduras to secure qualification for next year’s tournament, citing the toll his four-year tenure had taken on him “both personally and professionally”.

Football Federation Australia chairman Steven Lowy and CEO David Gallop now have to set out to find the right man to take the Socceroos to Russia, with Sydney FC boss Graham Arnold a possibility to have another crack at the job he had a decade ago. Another option could be Tony Popovic, who might be keen to make a swift exit from Turkish Süper Lig strugglers Karabükspor.

The draw is tough, but it’s certainly not impossible for Australia to progress to the knockout stages. They start their campaign against the might of France at the Kazan Arena on Saturday 16th June at 21:00 (AEST), before taking on Denmark at the Samara Arena on Friday 22nd June at 02:00 and finally Peru at the Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi on Wednesday 27th June at 01:00.

The opening game against France is as tough as it gets, but even a point against Denmark would keep Australian hopes alive going into the final game against a Peruvian team that look decidedly beatable.

One possible factor in Australia’s favour is that they took part at the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia as 2015 AFC Asian Cup winners, losing 3-2 to Germany before securing 1-1 draws against Cameroon and Chile. That experience might just prove invaluable.

Football Tips For 2017

Could This Be a Farewell for Super Mare Winx

All of the best football betting tips sites have Chelsea as the favorite to be crowned champions at the end of the season. They have an eight-point gap at the top and zero distraction from achieving it. It is difficult to see anyone being able to catch them but if they do end up losing two games in a row, things could change very fast. It will mean though that the chasing pack can not afford to drop point if they are going to overtake them which has not happened so far. That is why they are my contribution to the gambling news as choice to win the EPL title this campaign.


If you are wanting to put a bet on the end of season finishes then the best value is guessing which teams will finish in the top four. Chelsea are odds on so there is not value in backing them but you can still get excellent value on who will qualify for the Champions League. At the moment both Liverpool and Manchester United are the two teams that will miss out but with the top of the table changing every week, it is unlikely it will stay that way. Below are my free betting tips on who will manage to qualify for the world's most prestigious competition and who will miss out.


Chelsea is almost certain to grab one of the top four places but the other three spots are still up for grabs. In the driving seat at present is Manchester City who are in second and eight points behind the leaders. They have been very inconsistent this campaign and will need to carry on their recent form and not the patch in the middle where they fell apart. I think they have enough quality in their squad to see them grab one of the spots and will improve greatly next season.


If Spurs had beaten Liverpool in their last outing many would have talked about them having a genuine chance this season to win the EPL. They did not play well and the pressure seemed to get to the players and instead of rising to the occasion they crumbled. They have been one of the most consistent teams though and have the joint best defense in the league. That should be enough to see them get one of the top four places as long as they do not have a typical falling apart over the last couple of matches.


Arsenal are the team in the biggest danger of not qualifying and with Liverpool along with Man U hot on their tails they could miss out. The fans are getting restless at the Emirates and want to see a change because they are fed up with constantly bottling it every year. With the competition at the top the most intense it has every been, I can see the pressure mounting and them missing out for the first time in Wenger's reign as manager.


Liverpool were yet again fantastic against one of the top teams and were comfortable winners against Spurs. The problem is not beating the best, it is the teams that they should beat where the problem lies. They have the quality to be champions if they can cut this out and I think that Klopp will be able to turn the players mentality around so they can start winning these games. I think by the end of the campaign they will overtake Arsenal and get the final top four place and they are my football top tips to achieve it.


Even though Man U have improved as the season has progressed they have left it a bit too late. I think that they will come close to getting the final spot but will end up missing out. With stability at the club and Mourinho in charge things will get better and next campaign they should have all the tools needed to mount a serious challenge for the title. 


We hope you enjoyed these predictions and remember that there are many ways to enjoy the game and make use of your free football tips.

Could This Be a Farewell for Super Mare Winx

Could This Be a Farewell for Super Mare Winx

While Arrogance is dominating the horseracing world of dirt racing, one doesn’t have to look any further than Australia’s super mare known only as Winx as the world’s turf champion. As she and her connections prepare for the next race, an admiring racing public might be forced to come to grips with the notion this could be the great mare’s last trip around a grassy oval. If you are Australian horse race betting today, you surely know about the growing legend

In the recent Grade 1 George Ryder Stakes, Winx used her brilliant turn-of-foot to get across the soft turf on the way to another dominating performance. In spite of a poor start and less than ideal surface conditions for her, Winx confirmed she has no real competition when traveling distances of 2000 meters or less. She used her ability to accelerate on the way to an easy 8-length victory last Saturday at Rosehill Gardens. 

The win, her second George Ryder Stakes in a row, marked the 20th of her amazing career. It put her earnings at just over AUS $10.4 million and growing. The bay mare has now won 16 races in a row, of which 11 have been Grade 1 events. The last time Winx tasted defeat was back in April of 2015 when she failed to handle turf conditions similar to one she encountered in the George Ryder Stakes. On that particular day, she managed to finish second in the Grade 1 Australian Oaks to a multiple Grade 1 winning mare in her own right. It takes a very special animal to always show up and always give a top-notch performance. To always win is simply astonishing. 

Her victory in the George Ryder sets her up perfectly for her next race at a slightly longer distance. Based on her connection’s plans, that race could very well be the AJC Queen Elizabeth stakes on April 8 at Randwick Racecourse. It’s worth noting that while no official announcement has been made, Winx has very little left to prove on the racetrack. It’s possible the time has come for the mare to be retired in time for the next breeding season. 

The Queen Elizabeth Stakes is scheduled to be run at a distance of 2000 meter on turf for a total purse of AUS $4.0 million. A victory in this race would push Winx’s career earnings up to just under AUS $13.0 million. The race is designated for 3-year olds and up with weights being assigned based on age. Also, fillies and mare will be granted an adjustment on the scale.

For owners Magic Bloodstock Racing (Mgr: P G Tighe), R G Treweeke & Mrs. D N Kepitis, it will be a bittersweet moment to see Winx’s career as a racehorse come to an end. There might be a temptation to bring the world’s best racing mare back for another season to take a run at Black Caviar’s incredible record of 25 wins in a row, but how much would really be gained and at what risk? The reality is the horse’s value as a broodmare makes any risk too much.
