Jackpot City to sponsor a premiership team?

Football is a huge entertainment industry these days, and the Premier League in particular is one of the biggest in the world with its most successful teams attracting a truly global audience.

No one could be in any doubt at the amount of fans these teams have as most have achieved both domestic and European success. What this also means is that there are always a flurry of rumours and speculation surrounding the clubs, with one of the latest being the suggestion that they may be set to seal a new sponsorship deal with the online casino company JackpotCity.

Unlike some of the other rumours we shouldn’t really be so surprised if there turns out to be any truth in this one because online gambling is one of the few entertainment sectors that can compete with football in the digital era – boasting a worldwide appeal almost as great as that of the Premier League. Football and gambling are two forms of entertainment which have demonstrated themselves to be winners in the brave new digital world, so why wouldn’t they be looking to team up with each other?

A sponsorship deal between any premiership club and Jackpot City would help the online gambling site reach an even wider audience, and it would likely by lucrative for both parties. Given that football fans are often enthusiastic casino gamblers it is likely that such a sponsorship deal would be bringing the name of the company to a very receptive audience, while also potentially opening the door to spin-off club themed games at the site.

Already Jackpot City features a number of football themed games, particularly video slot games like Game On, so clearly there is a real crossover appeal between football and online gambling that would only be strengthened by a sponsorship deal such as this one.
