The 2014 Formula 1 season is on the horizon, meaning that anyone from the field of drivers can potentially win the Drivers' Championship making the process of choosing who to put outright bets on a little harder.
The odds have been available, although changeable, at bookmakers' sites since before the season even started, but those who waited before gambling on the winner may now be glad they held off. So which drivers still have a shot at glory this time around?
Well it may be down to just five drivers this season, namely Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg, as beyond this the bookies odds rise sharply.
Indeed although you can get decent odds on any of these drivers, the fact is that current reigning champion Sebastian Vettel is the bookies favourite again with odds of 7/4. But Hamilton is breathing down his neck, with many punters backing the British driver at 7/2. The best of the rest starts with Alonso (6/1), Mercedes driver Rosberg (9/1) and former world champion Jensen Button priced at 10/1.
This could make gambling on the winner of the 2014 season a tough decision for many motor sports betting enthusiasts, which is where the game 5 Reel Drive at online casino sites like Lucky Nugget can be a godsend.
As the play on words in the name indicates, this is a five reel slots game with a motor racing twist, but it uses American freeway racing rather than the likes of Formula 1 as its inspiration. So why would a fan of the latter want to play it?
Well the fact that it offers a very good chance of a payout will surely be one incentive - thanks to the wild and scatter symbols on the reels. The wild is the road sign, and fills in for other ones to create winning lines, while the cops are the scatter symbols - and at least three on your reel, sparks an automatic payout. The jackpot for this game is also a more than decent 10,000 coins, while you can play it with just $0.10 a time.
Therefore 5 Reel Drive is an unusual, fast moving and potentially lucrative game to suit anyone interested in gambling and motor racing.
