The Premier League is one of the most popular leagues in the world to watch, but it is also one of the most popular to bet on - with people all over the world choosing to watch the matches live on television and wager on the results of individual matches and which side will end up claiming the title. This global appeal is only enhanced by the increasingly exciting and unpredictable nature of the Premier League, and is one that has been noted by other gambling sectors.

Particularly the online casinos such as Gaming Club, found at http://www.gamingclub.com/nz/, which already rival sports betting for popularity amongst gamblers with a staggering amount of choice available in terms of card games and other casino games such as the roulette, have sought to produce football-themed games to appeal to those who love watching and betting on the Premier League - like the Game On football slot. For a casino game like this to really work it has to be something with a genuine football theme, not simply a generic slot game with a bit of football trimming, as this will not fool any genuine fan, but fortunately Game On does fit this bill.

What it does not do however, is make the business of betting on the winner of the Premier League any easier - even if it lets fans practice their gaming during breaks between matches - because the two sides in contention are simply to closely matched to call. The two Manchester sides are clearly better than the other teams in the league - despite occasional slip-ups - but both also have key weaknesses.

Manchester United are short in defence and central midfield, while City are also struggling defensively and up front. However arguably many of City's defensive woes are due to loss of form (Vincent Kompany), and Mancini's refusal to play the best player (Joleon Lescott); while United don't have the options. On the other hand, United are clearly stronger up front, boasting the likes of Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie, and have been scoring goals for fun this season - which is not something that could be said of their rivals.

United hold the advantage in points terms, but as we saw last season, it is likely to go right down to the wire.
