The Minnesota Wild have made a decent start to the 2013/14 NHL season, and lie in fourth place in the Western Conference Central Division after twenty-two games. They have a record of thirteen wins and five defeats so far, and are a mere two points off the league leaders. This justifies their low odds for this division at bookmakers’ sites, currently in the region of 10/1, and makes them a decent pick for a Central Division outright bet. On current form they could also be a good choice for the Western Conference, where you can get best odds of 14/1 on them, but perhaps outright gambling is not your bag.
An alternative is to wager on upcoming games for the Wild, with their next game being a match-up with the Ottawa Senators, who are presently struggling a bit in the Eastern Conference Atlantic Division. Ottawa are third from bottom, having lost around half of their fixtures thus far. This would seem to make the Wild the obvious pick for this clash, but the Senators secured an excellent win over the highly fancied Bruins in their last game and the odds suggest even the bookies find it too close to call. At the moment you can get 10/11 on either of these teams to win the game, making it tough to bet on, and making an ice hockey slot game an appealingly straightforward alternative.
Games like five-reel ice hockey slot machine Break Away have the simplicity of slot games, and are just as easy to access as well. You can play them on your computer from an online casino like http://www.gamingclub.com/au or put them on your phone as an app from a mobile casino. Either way you will be playing for a great cash jackpot ($500 in the case of Break Away), with both scatter and wild reel icons there to give you the best possible chance of grabbing a payout. The games themselves are also generally pretty simple to grasp, but with stunning video graphics and sound effects, they are also hugely exciting and immersive. If the Ottawa/Minnesota betting is foxing you, they will be the perfect way to clear your head.
