Love sports, but want to juice up the action even more? Below, we discuss the best sports to bet on online…

Football

This one is a no-brainer, as the world’s most beloved and played sport is an excellent sport to wager on when making your first bets online. Whether it’s the United Kingdom or Brazil, the world over loves football

The tight nature of this game, where goals are at a premium at the best of times, makes the process of sweating a match that you have money riding on all the more exciting.

What’s more, there are professional leagues all over the world, making the process of keeping on top of influencing factors challenging for professional bookies.

As a result, when you are live at a Slovenian football match and you have a unique insight on the players that few others would have, pulling out your phone and having a go at sports-betting online will give you a great chance at making some quick Euros while you enjoy a night out with your mates.

American football

The other football, the one the bloody Yanks whose name they insist on appropriating despite their ball resembling an egg more than a spherical object, is a sport that is rife with strategy and complex plays.

While it can devolve into a mind-numbing series of line tackles and quick whistles at its most defensive, there are plenty more moments of inventive plays that open up holes in the field, allowing running backs to sprint towards the end zone with a single-minded purpose, and those of sheer desperation as the clock ticks down.

While all of these moments make more an edge of seat experience for those that are betting on the score going one way or another, those that are into more exotic bets are in for a treat, as American football has been picked apart by statisticians, thereby opening up an endless series of stats to place an over/under bet upon.

Ice hockey

Well loved by the hardy inhabitants of Canada, the Northern USA and Scandinavia, ice hockey is a dazzling display of athleticism and physical brutality, demonstrated in tandem by tough players on skates.

With a touch more offense than your average football game, but with faster action and all the punishment one would expect on a rugby or American football pitch, betting on this sport will take an outstanding experience and make it an unforgettable evening.

With many games turning on a dime due to penalties, the emotion of teams and the crowd, or via something as innocuous as a deep rut in the ice causing the puck to skip in an unexpected manner, you’ll be holding on to your couch cushion at many moments throughout a typical hockey match.

The top tourist attractions in Lithuania amaze you at every turn!

The top tourist attractions in Lithuania are some of Europe’s best kept secrets. Despite having only won its independence from the Soviets in 1993, Lithuania is back on its feet. It is now a member of the European Union and a partner of NATO. That said however, Lithuania doesn’t get as much tourists even though it has a colorful history. After you succeed in finding affordable flights to this fascinating nation, check out the best of what Lithuania has to offer so that you will know what to see when you arrive here. It’s important to remember that whilst Lithuanian isn’t a language that you are likely to be familiar with, all of the tours and guides here have excellent Lithuanian translation services so that you can fully understand what you are seeing.

1. Hill of Crosses

The small hill is located 6 miles from Siauliai and comprises of two mounds with thousands of crosses. The crosses range from cheap to expensive and are made of wood or metal. They were placed there by locals either as memorials or devotions to accompany prayers and this tradition is believed to originate from the 14th century. The Hill of Crosses is especially eerie when the wind blows and causes the crosses and hanging rosaries to rattle.

2. Grutas Park

It is a privately-owned Soviet sculpture park spanning for 2 sq km. It was built to resemble a Siberian concentration park. When it opened in 2001, you can only imagine the controversies it attracted. But the owner stands by the historical significance of Grutas Park even though it reminds them of their painful past. Grutas Park, no matter how controversial, is one of the top tourist attractions in Lithuania.

3. Sand Dunes

The sand dunes at the Curonian Split National Park have folkloric origins but it was really years of deforestation that allowed sand from the coast to wander to the area. It only took three centuries to form these sand dunes, swallowing more than a dozen villages along the way. But replanting is ongoing at the national park and 20 percent of it is now covered by forests. Meanwhile, the sand dunes are still moving but already shrinking. While it’s still there, make sure that you pay the Sahara of Lithuania a visit.

4. Zokniai Military Airfield

This airfield was once the largest military base outside of the USSR. The last USSR troops left in 1993 when Lithuania gained its independence. Today, the air base is used by NATO forces to patrol the Baltic skies. Guided tours of the airfield are available but you will have to book in advance.

5. Nemunas Delta Regional Park

It is the site of the Ventés Ragas Ornithological Station where you can learn more about the Nemunas bird and wait for it from the observation deck. But you can also see other species of birds within the Nemunas Delta Regional Park including 270 of the 350 kinds found in Lithuania. Any birdwatcher knows that this is one of the top tourist attractions in Lithuania.
