Coral Football Jackpot waiting to be won every week!

Remember the old style football pools coupons long before the advent of online betting cropped up? Whether you are one of those people who will remember them with nostalgia or not, the modern version of them can be found over at Coral with their Football Jackpot competition. Every weekend you can take a shot at winning the big pot! What you will be presented with on the Coral Football Jackpot page is simple a coupon with a list of upcoming football matches. Next to the listed match you will have the options of a Home Win, Draw or Away win. Simply select which outcome you think is going to happen on the listed games and sit back and wait for the results to roll in. You have to predict the outcome of the 15 matches on the coupon and the jackpot is always guaranteed to be at least £100,000. Just click the Home Win, Draw or Away Win on each game and select your stake which is a minimum of £1 per line and you can go right up to £20 per line in the Football Jackpot. You can increase your chances of potentially winning by adding more lines, basically selecting multiple options on a single game. For example, you do have the power to select a Home Win, Draw and Away Win on a single match, but that will increase your lines and as the stake is cultured per line then your stage is going to go up. The coupon is easy to use and you can click around and play with your options and there is a calculator at the bottom of it as well to help you out too.


If you correctly get all fifteen predictions in the Football Jackpot correct then you will win a share of the Jackpot Pool. There are also first and second consolation prizes as well. If you get fourteen of fifteen selections correct then you get a share of the consolation dividend and if you get 13 of the 15 right then you will get a share of the 2nd consolation dividend.

Coral Player Bets – an exciting alternative for football betting

Bookmaker Coral run a service which allows you to get a little creative with your wagers. Instead of the usual fare of looking at the match result of a football match, you can test your powers of prediction by weighing up options of how certain players will perform in a match. This is through the Coral Player Bets feature which is only available on their mobile services. What you can do with Coral Player Bets is go and pick a player in a match and then place a stake on a variety of stats that you think the player will meet in his upcoming fixture. This is a real test of skills and prediction powers and you can land yourself some huge bragging rights for pulling this out of the bag. For example, you can select from markets such as how many shots on target that the player will have in the match, how many tackles he will put in, how many goals etc. This is all really easy to do with the Player Bets builder on your mobile. You chose just which match you want and then add your player which will be the player for your chosen bet (for example Romelu Lukaku). Then select your desired statistic for that player and away you go.


A great feature of the Coral Player Bets is that you can combine players in a match to hit a certain target. For example, you can have a wager on Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford to produce at least seven shots on target between them in their game.

Head to Head

You can all of this a step further as well by picking two players to go head to head in a match. You can pick Eden Hazard to outscore Harry Kane in a fixture or back Cesc Fabregas to produce more assists in a match than Christian Eriksen. Note that not all stats can be combined.

Terms of the markets

Payouts will happen if a player hits their target. For example, if you have backed a player to score 3 or more goals, if they net three then you win in full. If there is a tie in a head to head market then the bet will be a non-winner because the player you backed to beat the other in a particular stat, didn’t happen. The bet will be voided if a selected player does not start the game. There is no Cash Out My Bet option for Player Bets. Also, note that they won’t allow you to combine two bets using two different players from the same team for certain statistics. For example, you couldn’t have Marcus Rashford to score at least two goals as one bet and Romelu Lukaku to have at least five shots on target in an accumulator and Coral won’t allow a user to combine bets for two players from the same team using "paired combination" statistics

How can I request my own bet from bookmakers?

Bookmaker News
Bookmakers have started to put a fair bit of control into the hands of punters thanks to online betting opportunities. No longer do punters just have to go and settle for what is on offer in a sportsbook with a bookmaker, instead, now, punters are able to go and create a bet of their own liking and then simply go and ask for that wager to be priced up. It is nice to be able to go and call the shots to some degree if you think you can strike it rich. This increasingly popular new feature of being able to request a bet is allowing punters to get as creative as they like for their online betting. The ability to create a bet is largely focused on football matches and from stats involved in them such as the number of corners, both teams to score and how many assists a named player in a match will make. You can throw things like this together, and as many as you want, into a single bet.

How to request a bet

The one thing that all of the different request a bet features across different bookmakers have in common is that you will have to go and hit up Twitter to request a price. Each bookmaker is naturally running a different hashtag for their request a bet feature so all that you would do is look for the specific hashtag and which handle to Tweet it to and just send it off. Generally what happens is that the bookmaker will then reply to your Tweet along with a link where you can go directly and place the bet.

Coral #YourCall

Coral are one of the purveyors of this and their version is called #Yourcall. On all Premier League, Championship, Champions League, La Liga and Serie A matches you can create a bet from the following markets: Match result, Both Teams To Score, Total Match Goals, Total Match Corners and Total Match Booking Points, plus you have the options based on named players in the match as well, such as shots, tackles, assists and a player to be carded. Coral also offer the feature on NBA Basketball matches including Money Line, Total Points, assists, rebounds, 3-point goals, blocked shots and steals.

Ladbrokes #GetAPrice

Ladbrokes also run a version of being able to request a bet. So there you can combine your own Match and Play Stats markets. You can pick your bet from a from a whole host of stats like assists, passes, shots, shots on target and tackles, or any combination. The Ladbrokes #GetAprice is available every week on all Premier League, Championship, La Liga, Serie A and Champions League matches. Basically, if you can’t find a market that you want, you can ask Ladbrokes to create it for you.

Paddy Power #AskPaddyPower

If you can think of a market that Paddy Power haven’t listed on their site then you can go and ask them to price it up for you. With Paddy Power whatever you can think up pretty much flies as they state that they will offer you up a price on virtually anything. So even if you think you have a crazy old creation going on, the chances are that Paddy Power will take a look at it and offer you something. Just Tweet them and find out!

William Hill #YourOdds

William Hill are another of the major online bookmakers to offer punters the chance to request a price on a wager of your creation. Again you can simply go and ask the bookmaker to price something up for you. There is a list of sports that William Hill have listed that will be covered by the #YourOdds feature, such as football and horse racing, but even if you are thinking outside of the list then there really is no harm in just asking anyway.

Back Bets Created By Others

What you will notice at bookmakers, such as at William Hill there are even dedicated sections for the special markets that punters have created already. So if you are lacking the time to go and create one of your own then you browse through other bets that have already been requested by and matched for punters and just strike a bet as you would on a regular sports betting market and make the most of those!

Make your own betting call with Coral #YourCall

Like the thought of making your own calls when it comes to betting? At Coral, there is a feature which allows you to do just that and it is called #Your Call - You Call the Shots. This is a feature which allows you to go and ask the bookmaker directly to price up a market of your choosing. This is becoming an increasingly popular feature in online betting, where punters basically can request a bet of whatever they can come up with. How this works at Coral is that through their promotions page you will get access to a ‘Tweet Your Bet’ button or you can just go on Twitter with the hashtags #Your Call and @Coral and request a bet. This is largely available on football mostly and this is where, if you think that you have the winning match and player stats, you can throw it together and try to cash in. These are obviously bets that you can't find in a regular bookmakers' Sportsbook. Basically, you are looking at stats like assists, passes, shots, shots on target and tackles and get them priced up into a bet in any way you want. #YourCall is available on all Premier League, Championship, Champions League, La Liga and Serie A matches on the following markets: Match Result Both Teams To Score Total Match Goals Total Match Corners Total Match Booking Points

How to Use Coral #YourCall

Also on offer in the Coral #YourCall are options on named players including a player to be carded, any time goal scorer, shots, passes, tackles and assists. For example, you can send a Tweet @Coral for Alvaro Morata to score 1+ Goals, Cesc Fabregas to make 1+ assists and Chelsea to win #YourCall. Once the Tweet has been sent then Coral will message you back with a price as well a link so that you can actually go and strike the bet. It’s really just that easy. You will also find on the Coral website, #YourCall bets that have already been matched up by the bookmaker and you can go and bet on them just as you would on any regular market in the sportsbook. So if there is a created bet that you fancy, then you can enjoy it without having to actually create it yourself. If there’s nothing there that you fancy much, if there’s a market that doesn’t exist, they will try to create it for you if you send them a Tweet.

NBA #YourCall

Coral #YourCall is also available on the NBA Basketball as well at Coral and this includes Money Line, Total Points, assists, rebounds, 3-point goals, blocked shots and steals. So this extends your options a bit if you enjoy basketball betting.

Some Terms

Any #YourCall bets cannot be combined with any other bets at Coral. The feature allows you to request a price of a number of betting markets. There are situations where some bets will be voided, such as if a named player doesn’t start the game or if a game is postponed. Bets will be returned within 30 minutes from the conclusion of each match. All data comes from Opta.

Coral receive flurry of bets on a White Christmas 2017

Get ready. You knew that this was coming sooner rather than later. Coral have revised odds on there being a White Christmas in the UK in 2017. Even with the festive season a relatively long way off, bookmakers were already accepting bets on the white stuff falling, but after a flurry of bets was received at Coral, they have slashed the chances of Christmas Day 2017 snowfall happening from 3/1 down to even money. “Punters are dreaming of a White Christmas this year as we have been a flurry of bets over the last few days on snowfall on Christmas Day this year,” said Coral’s John Hill. “The odds suggest snow is more likely to fall in Aberdeen and Glasgow, however, we are seeing money for cities all across the UK,” added Hill. At the start of October, some weather forecaster groups put out just a 12% chance of snow in the north of England on Christmas Day and around an 8% chances in the Midlands and central areas. Things raised up to a 25% chance in the south and other organisations had a better 50% chance in the north and in Scotland. Light snow has fallen somewhere in the UK on the big day 38 times in the last 54 years, but serious falls have only occurred four times in the past half century. It is still early days of course for weather models but the consensus seems to be that it would be too middle in the south and south-west of England to get snowfalls. But it is expected that dry conditions would be set for Wales, the Midlands, north of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Forecaster Hannah Findley, of The Weather Channel, said: “A specific forecast for Christmas Day is going to be very unreliable this far out. “We are forecasting that the average temperature in December will be below normal and there are increased chances of ‘cold snaps’ this winter, as opposed to last winter. Forecaster Hannah Findley, of The Weather Channel, said: “A specific forecast for Christmas Day is going to be very unreliable this far out. “We are forecasting that the average temperature in December will be below normal and there are increased chances of ‘cold snaps’ this winter, as opposed to last winter. “But predicting whether there will be one at Christmas is impossible.” Some forecasters have indicated that the chances of a White Christmas have increased with medium range computer models suggesting an increasing likelihood of colder weather developing into November and December and have predicted possible festive snowfall in Scotland. However, it is far too early for an accurate festive forecast.

GGG v Canelo Alvarez Boxing Odds & Preview

Sports Betting
One of the biggest bouts of the boxing calendar year goes down on the weekend. This is going to be a massive battle as well between Gennady Golovkin and Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez. There has long been huge public demand for this fight, but it never really looked as if it was going to happen. But the two fighters have risen to the occasion to put themselves on the line and this should be a classic. This is happening in Las Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena, the scene of the recent Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor duel. Golovkin goes into this with the WBA, WBC and IBF Middleweight titles. Of the three, if Golovkin were to lose, the WBC title would become vacant. It has been a huge year for boxing and this one is right up there as one of the best. Golovkin has remained something special throughout his career and the 35 year old goes into this defending his 37 match unbeaten record during his career. It was only back in May after Canelo had beaten Julio Cesar Chavez Jr that GGG stepped into the ring to announce that he would take on Alvarez.

GGG v Canelo Alvarez Boxing Odds

Golovkin 4/6, Alvarez 5/4 at Coral Naturally because of all the hype around the Mayweather v McGregor farce, this one hasn’t quite achieved as much hype. But this should be some fight and it will determine just which of them is the best fighter in the world at the moment. GGG will go into his 20th consecutive world title fight so there is no messing around from him. His record stands at 33 knockouts from his 37 bouts. The question is now, is he at his very best because there have been signs of vulnerability creeping in later into his career. When GGG fought Kell Brook, who had come up two weight divisions to face the champion, Brook landed some nice blows in the fight before he was stopped. Then back in March, it looked as if Golovkin’s unbeaten record may have come to an end as Daniel Jacobs became the first man to last the distance with Golovkin in a championship fight but the unanimous decision went to GGG. Some ridiculous rumours have come out that the Kazakh fighter deliberately didn’t go all out in the bout against Jacobs to lure Alvarez into fighting him. 27 year old Alvarez has a 49-1-1 career record and from that, 34 have been knockouts. That was that big bout for him back in May against Chavez, which turned out to be a non-contest really because Alvarez dominated the entire proceedings. It was expected to be a much closer fight, but the class of Canelo was total and he produced such a smart display of tactical boxing. You see that loss on his record, well that’s not anything to be overly concerned about because that happened against Floyd Mayweather back in 2013.

GGG v Canelo Alvarez Boxing Prediction

Golovkin has been a beast in his career, but he is getting to the end of it. If you base things off of their respective last fights, then Canelo gets the nod for us. Golovkin was simply struggling against Jacobs earlier in the year because his opponent got inside his jab and worked the Kazakh very well. Canelo managed a big guy in the form of Chavez in his last fight and never looked to be troubled. The defence of GGG will all be on his jab but if the Mexican get inside of that, it will probably be game over. One weakness of Canelo is his footwork so he has to avoid that jab at all costs. Otherwise he is tactically sound and and can become the unified middleweight champion of the world. It is rare that you will find a fight so evenly matched in the betting market. Golovkin is at 4/6 with bookmaker Coral and Alvarez is at 5/4. So not a big margin there but the Mexican gets it and this has a strong probability of going all the way to points and Alvarez is a 2/1 punt to claim this on points.
