UEFA Champions League Final 2022 Preview: Liverpool vs. Real Madrid



Reading Time: 3 minutes


The two most elite squads of European football in 2022 will do battle at the Stage de France on May 28th. Liverpool and Real Madrid have fought through the trenches of the Champions League group and qualification stages to reach the penultimate fixture of the tournament.

The most prestigious trophy in European club football is a mere three weeks from hosting its final matchup. It’ll be Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool squad hoping to re-write history when facing Spanish giants Real Madrid who defeated them in the competition back in 2018.

From A Betting Perspective

Los Blancos and the Reds are the most successful teams in European competition. Liverpool lifted the UCL trophy on six occasions, and Real Madrid boasts twelve successes in their club’s history. The worldwide popularity of each team could produce the most-watched Champions League final ever, and the sports betting apps and bookmakers are guaranteed to be prepared for the heavy wagering action to follow.

Oddsmakers have put their line-making faith in Liverpool as the Champions League winners of 2022; the available odds are currently 1.59 (-169) with a 62.9% implied probability with the comeback on Real Madrid at 2.70 (+170) with a 37% implied probability. However, betting on the UCL trophy winner removes the method in which the tournament is won – moneyline bettors who expect either team to win within 90 minutes of action will provide a higher value. The Liverpool moneyline is priced at 2.05 (+105), and as a heavy underdog, if you believe Los Blancos can shock the world again, an incredible piece of betting value at 3.70 (+270) can be had on the Spaniards.

From a betting perspective, I believe that no team should be entering a Champions League final with such a dramatic separation in the available odds. Logic would say bet the Real Madrid odds and understand that technical ability and managerial tactics don’t necessarily produce winning teams. Of course, most critics would agree that Liverpool owns the superior lineup. Still, the same people also argued the same case for PSG and Manchester City, who fell victim to Carlo Ancelotti and his masterfully crafted squad selection.


A history-defining moment in time awaits Jurgen Klopp and company. Liverpool is on the brink of accomplishing an unfathomable feat with the potential of a quadruple trophy season ahead. After collecting the English League Cup, they claimed a position in this season’s FA Cup final, and with an English Premier League title chase with Manchester City underway, the domestic treble of English glory is a real possibility. And, of course, the Champions League final would complete the quadruple, should the Reds succeed in the aforementioned trophy hunts. However, despite their UCL exit, Manchester City is in top form, and Klopp’s men must overcome the defending UCL champions in Chelsea to get their hands on the FA Cup.

The weeks ahead will play a massive factor in Liverpool’s Champions League confidence heading into the final. With every game on the Reds schedule between now and May 28th involving ‘make or break’ situations, it will be imperative for the Merseyside faithful to remain composed and winning or losing these games will undoubtedly play a role in their clash with Real.

Nevertheless, Liverpool has played exceptional football this term, and many critics believe the gargantuan task of a quadruple season isn’t so unlikely.

Real Madrid

Los Blancos have already claimed the La Liga title after dethroning their city rivals Atletico Madrid with four matchdays remaining. Having dominated the season to a 35th Spanish title with room to spare, Real Madrid can relax and put their sole focus on the Champions League final with Liverpool.

It’s surprising how many people are doubting the most successful team in Champions League history. With just three defeats in seventeen European cup final appearances, I believe Real Madrid’s 2021/22 edition could silence the doubters once again.

Champions League 2022 Final Thoughts: Liverpool vs. Real Madrid

I genuinely believe that confidence will play a huge factor in this meeting. Therefore, it’s hard to make a prediction at the time of writing this article. I’ll leave you with this, should Liverpool claim the FA Cup trophy against Chelsea and take the English Premier League title from Manchester City, they’re going to enter the Stade de France with a level of confidence that even Karim Benzema and his comrades can overcome.

On the flip side, If Liverpool suffers a downtrend throughout the upcoming weeks of play, Real Madrid might capitalize on the fragile mentality the Anfield boys will unquestionably be suffering from.

Tropicana Casino Moves to “Light & Wonder” Gaming Platform



Reading Time: 2 minutes


Tropicana online casino will be officially moved to the Light & Wonder platform – formerly known as Scientific Games.

The casino ended its partnership with UK-based Gamesys Limited – their previous platform provider.

The transition is expected to take place on May 25, 2022. This will bring Light & Wonder’s modern look and user interface to Tropicana, potentially boosting its position among online casinos in USA.

How Will Players Be Affected?

The Tropicana app will continue to take bets until the transition takes place.

Players shouldn’t be concerned about safety, or data transfers. All processes will be done automatically, and player records will be seamlessly transferred. Everything that’s already in your account, will stay there as you remember. This includes funds, documents, and payment methods.

After May 25, players will be able to visit the Caesars Casino app to reset their login details (if needed) and access the full range of Tropicana’s gaming library.

The full timeline for the migration goes as follows:

  • April 4: Removal of Jackpots in preparation for platform switch
  • April 30: Final day of access to daily and monthly free games
  • May 2: Promotions are put on hold
  • May 24: Tropicana Casino app stops function; account data is transferred to Caesars Casino App

How Will Tropicana Be Affected?

Tropicana stands firmly in the middle by way of revenue in New Jersey. In 2022’s first two months, they’ve made a little over 18$ million. Yet, the Ceasars Interactive brands made around $20 million in April alone.

Now that Tropicana will fall under Caesars Interactive, the two apps will be merged. Tropicana will join the ranks of Harrah’s and Ceasars’ Online, among others.

By merging with the Caesars Casino app, Tropicana casino will have access to a wider audience. What’s more, the Caesars Casino app is planned to be rebranded to the Tropicana Casino app.

This move makes sense, considering the value and recognition of the Tropicana brand name.

There are other brands that have struck partnerships with Caesars Entertainment. The date of their market entry isn’t known, but these should make an entrance at some point this year:

  • PlayUp
  • PlayOJO
  • MaximBet

What is Light & Wonder?

Light & Wonder’ Inc. was formerly known as Scientific Games Corporation. This US-based gambling company has been at the forefront of online gambling for decades.

Light & Wonder owns several prominent publishers like WMS, Shuffle Master and SG Digital. Over the years, they’ve produced thousands of slot machines, table games, and casino management systems.

Besides online casinos, many of this provider’s titles are favorites at hundreds of land casinos in Vegas, Atlantic City, and various land-based establishments across the world.

The Light & Wonder platform offers modern gaming solutions. They equip partner casinos with 500+ casino games, and various system integrations for payments, and customer support. They ease the life of casino staff and Tropicana players.

In summary, Tropicana players have every reason to be excited about this platform switch!

AvatarUX roams the savannah in RagingPop™



AvatarUX roams the savannah in RagingPop™
Reading Time: 2 minutes


Innovative slots supplier AvatarUX has ventured to the wild setting of the African savannah in its latest feature-rich hit, RagingPop™.

Containing AvatarUX’s hugely popular PopWins™ mechanic, the highly detailed and visually appealing slot combines numerous mechanics for action-packed gameplay.

A Golden Rhino acts as a super-high symbol, paying out with just a combination of two symbols, rather than three.

In addition, every time the reels are spun, the Raging Reel feature can be triggered, which will see Rhinos rampage across the screen, raising reel heights and adding multipliers to the matrix which can reach up to 500x in height.

In base play, through the ‘popping’ of wins, reels can reach up to six symbols high, while in the bonus this can hit seven, for increased win potential and anticipation building with every pop.

Three or more scatter symbols will award the free spins mode, which launches a multi-stage gamble mode, where players can spin a Gamble Wheel for increased free spins if successful. Multiple successful spins can lead to up to 30 free spins being awarded.

During the bonus round, there is progressive reel growth, with every reel growing by one symbol after 10 spins. This process is repeatable until max reel height is reached.

There is also the option for an Ante Bet feature to be enabled, doubling the base to bonus hit rate for an increase of 25% in stake value, as well as the ability to progress straight through to the Free Spins with the Buy Feature.

RagingPop™ becomes the latest title to join AvatarUX’s rich portfolio, filled with diverse themes that all highlight the innovative proprietary mechanic, PopWins™.

Nicola Longmuir, CEO at AvatarUX, said: “We’ve explored a plethora of dynamic themes in our PopWins™ series and in RagingPop™ we’ve journeyed to the African savannah for an immersive adventure.

“Combining numerous features, huge multipliers and a max win of 20,000x, it is another high volatility adventure that gives players the chance to enjoy the spectacular AvatarUX slots.”
