The Football Pools
The Football Pools Review
The brand Football Pools has been around a lot longer than many will realise, with its foundations stretching as far back as the early 1920s. However, it's its modern day image and domain that is our primary focus. Operated by Sportech PLC, this website has a lot of trappings of a leading online betting platform. Sportech PLC is one of the biggest names within this market, and has a rich and prestigious history that makes it a wonderful associate to have.
As for the website itself, it has a mixed vibe of being a betting page and a bingo website, in fact, if you're not aware of Football Pools services, you may be forgiven for thinking it's a football based casino domain. What is more, the actual layout feels very clunky and unpolished – it doesn't aesthetically deliver what you would expect from such a well-known brand. That being said, everything you need to know and/or find is marked clearly, making navigation pretty simple.
Betting and Gaming
There are two ways to enjoy Football Pools: you can have a cheeky punt on some of your favourite footie matches, and you can try your luck at table games and slots. It really is a site for everyone, a description that sites like are rarely able live up to.
For those users whom are wanting to savour the bookmaker’s side of this domain, the Classic Pools section is where you'll be headed. Here you have the chance of winning huge cash prizes, as much as £3 billion, by discovering up to eight draws throughout the weekend matches.
When you go to make your decisions, you have the option to pick 10 for £1, pick 11 for £2.75, or finally, pick 12 for £7.50. As you can see, the cost goes up dramatically even though each tier only increases by one. As for those of you that aren't sure who to bet on or what to do, you can be brave and try the Lucky Dip option found at the bottom of the screen. This means the site chooses your options for you, and then you can decide whether you want to proceed or choose for yourself.
Even though there is a great array of choice in the aforementioned lobby of Football Pools, the Instant Wins tab just keeps on giving. When you browse their listings you will see just how diverse their activities really are. What is more, you'll also notice that virtually all their games have a free play option, which means users of all budgets can enjoy what's on offer.
