Cheltenham Festival 2023

Place: Cheltenham Racecourse, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire

Horse racing enthusiasts can have their favourite betting markets up their sleeves as the biggest four-day event in jumps racing will soon be in full swing. Mark your calendars for Cheltenham Festival commencing on the 14th of March. The race undoubtedly brings a wealth of opportunities for those looking to take on online sports betting in the UK.

You can enjoy 14 grade one races during the action-packed four days full of excitement and racecourse drama.

What are the four big races at Cheltenham?

Each day of the Cheltenham Festival offers a unique competitive scene. Here’s a quick overview of what to expect:

Day 1—The Champion Day

The Cheltenham Roar day brings together thousands of spectators screaming to mark the start of the jump racing season. The races are Sky Bet Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, Arkle Chase, Champion Hurdle, Mares Hurdle and National Hunt Chase.

Day 2 — The Queen Mother Champion Chase

Day two is known as most bettor’s favourite as it adds to the excitement by featuring unique races. This is an excellent opportunity for the young chasers to showcase their mastery.

Day 3 — Stayers’ Hurdle

Stayers’ Hurdle is run on the New Course at Cheltenham. The distance of about three miles is spiced up with twelve hurdles the runners need to jump over.

Day 4 — The Gold Cup

The conclusion of the race and one of the most-anticipated horse racing events is the Cheltenham Gold Cup—day four.

2023 Grand National

Date: 15th April

Place: Aintree Racecourse near Liverpool

For those waiting for yet another steeplechase run season, the 2023 Grand National is coming on the 15th of April. We’ll have the chance to bet on and follow over the 4-mile 514-yard run with 30 jumps. The final list of the horses vying for the trophy will be available closer to the race.

The Grand National promises an intriguing race that will keep bettors on the edge of their seats with the names like Nobel Yeats, Any Second Now, Conflated, Longhouse Poet and others among the contestants.

French Open 2023

Date: 28th May

Place:  Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France

After the Spaniard’s triumph last Grand Slam season, the French Open 2023 might even be more intense. Breaking his tie with masterminds Federer and Djokovic, Rafa snagged 22 Grand Slam singles titles and is the reigning champion of the last season. The Women’s Singles had no less spectacular action last season, with Iga Swiatek getting the crown.

Although it’s all subject to change before the main event, a quick preview of the outright French Open 2023 odds at the moment looks like the following:

French Open 2023  Men Outright Odds

  • Novak Djokovic 6/4
  • Carlos Alcaraz 7/4
  • Rafael Nadal 5/2
  • Stefanos Tsitsipas 13/2

French Open 2023 Women Outright Odds

  • Iga Swiatek 9/10
  • Ons Jabeur 9/1
  • Cori Gauff 12/1
  • Maria Sakkari 14/1

Tennis aficionados have been waiting for yet another Roland-Garros craze for a whole year. Grand Slams are known to be among the most prestigious sporting events that bring a little more than just on-court action. They usually get some drama and champion’s saga to the stage, making the tournaments even more unpredictable and exciting for sports betting.

UEFA Champions League Final

Date: 10th June

Place: Atatürk Olympic Stadium, Istanbul

With many changes in hosts and dates, the 31st season of the UEFA Champions League is finally coming up in June 2023. We’re all excited to see who’s lifting the trophy at the end of the pinnacle event of club competitions.

Given a decent history in the league, so far Real Madrid is on the hunt for their 15th European crown this season. However, there’re still some big clashes before the final day that might shake things up.

You can frequently check UEFA Champions League Odds to learn who are the favourites for the Champions League throughout the upcoming weeks.

Who will host the Champions League final in 2023?

The final will hopefully be staged at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium. It brings some history along with the venue. Back in the 2004-2005 season, the world witnessed a showpiece event bringing Liverpool its fifth European Cup. After such highlights as Liverpool’s comeback in the second half, or Jerzy Dudek’s final double save, the bar is set high for the venue.

Where can I bet on the UEFA Champions League?

Given that the league promises some mouthwatering action this season, many online sportsbooks are excited to offer diverse betting markets, odds and promotions. You have quite a wide selection to choose from. You still have time to preview the odds, keeping in mind the Safer Gambling Tools before you make the final decision.

Make sure all the terms of use are clearly stated and reviewed in the offer, like in the Champions League Goal Rush VBET promotion before you decide to use any.

Wimbledon 2023

Date: 3rd July

Place: All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club, Wimbledon, London

Although Wimbledon 2023 is scheduled in July, we still need clarity on the last season’s sports dramas. Among them are Russian and Belarusian players’ participation and Wimbledon’s ranking points.

While there will be a lot of changes before July, we all know for sure who lifted the trophy last season—the men’s singles champion is Novak Djokovic, and Elena Rybakina holds the Women’s Singles title. Reviewing the top four contenders of Wimbledon 2023 at the moment:

Wimbledon 2023 Men Outright Odds

  • Novak Djokovic 1/1
  • Matteo Berrettini 7/1
  • Carlos Alcaraz 7/1
  • Daniil Medvedev 9/1

Wimbledon 2023 Women Outright Odds

  • Iga Swiatek 4/1
  • Aryna Sabalenka 5/1
  • Elena Rybakina 5/1
  • Ons Jabeur 9/1

Knowing where and what to wager on should definitely be on your checklist if you consider placing a bet. While these are the major ones, the sports industry is generous with unique events worth following. There will undoubtedly be others that resonate with your preferences more; thus, staying tuned is always a good idea.

Reading Time: < 1 minute


B2B gaming supplier Push Gaming has released the second in its series of DJ games, DJ Cat, which brings a range of new features to amp up engagement.

Following the success of DJ Fox, this new follow-up retains the easy-to-understand, win-what-you-see gameplay, adding in larger win multipliers.

Lining up CD symbols helps players to build big prizes while VIP icons grant access to spin the decks and feed the Multiplier Meter. Arrow symbols crank the volume and unlock more reels using the iconic Push-Up feature.

Following a growing trend within iGaming, DJ Cat omits a bonus feature and instead is designed to deliver volatile gameplay throughout the title.

DJ Cat is the first second-quarter release from Push Gaming and launches ahead of much anticipated upcoming titles like Retro Sweets and Cats of Olympuss.

“Win-what-you-see games have enjoyed a surge in popularity recently and we’ve taken that trend and framed it in a contemporary theme, delivering something fresh to players and operators,” the Senior Game Producer for Push Gaming, Craig Turner, said. “In another unique twist from most of our catalogue, we decided not to implement a bonus round but instead designed the entire game with a fast-paced feel that we’re sure players will love.”

Multiply, Jackpot, and Supreme LockNWin bonus games can be triggered whenever orange, yellow or pink Cerberus coins land on the reels.

During base gameplay, fireballs worth up to 10x the stake can land on the first four reels and if a collect symbol also lands on reel five, it instantly collects and multiplies the fireball values. Every soul symbol landing is collected by an orb alongside the reels, increasing its multiplier by +1 up to maximum 10x the bet. Split symbols can also appear on the top row, adding up to three additional symbols to each reel and boosting the number of pay ways up to a hefty 7,776 ways.
