The likes of Louisiana State Tigers encompass all manner of sports, from football to tennis, softball and athletics track and field, all representing the same university or college (Louisiana State University in this case). So it seems slightly strange that it is so hard to put bets on all of the sports apart from the football. Although college football is massively popular in the States, most people who support the Tigers in this also do so in the other sports, and could be interested in gambling on them at the big bookmakers’ sites.
However comparatively few of these sites offer much in the way of college track and field betting, and this is matched by relatively little coverage in the press. While it will be possible to find some information that can help you make the right bets if you live in the States, any sports betting punter based in another country will find it virtually impossible. This is the case when it comes to finding out what they need to know to bet on the Tigers in track and field events, or to actually find anywhere offering odds or different betting markets. Given this state of affairs it perhaps isn’t so surprising that online casino slot games on CasinoOnline.co.nz with a track and field theme have started to gain a following, as they provide another way to enjoy both the sport and gambling on it.
The game that started the ball rolling was the three-reel slot Track and Field Mouse, launched by Microgaming a few years back, which provides a quirky twist on athletics by having graphics depicting cartoon mice racing against each other on the reels. With its gold, silver and bronze game bonuses and $5000 jackpot it has grabbed the attentions of people who like betting on athletics, just as other sports themed slot games have done for fans of those sports. For this reason it is likely that we will see more athletics themed games arriving at both online and mobile casino sites over the next few years.
