There is not a great deal going on in the Irish casino news at the moment as we all settle down into the routines of the New Year with all the best will in the world to do better and win more at our preferred online casino. We have noticed however in the Irish casino news that Paddy Power casino is doing a daily promotion which is indeed different each day but how long that will last is not clear. Ladbrokes casino is also in the Irish casino news with a new promotion to attract new players which includes a 100% deposit match bonus with quite reasonable terms and some slot bonuses which are due to expire but we expect here at Irish casino news will either be extended or replaced with something equally as good. Not exactly Irish casino news but news nevertheless is the prospect of Ladbrokes casino buying the Dublin based betting exchange Betdaq. In a statement Betdaq is reported in the Irish casino news as saying “The Board notes repeated press speculation regarding Betdaq. Ladbrokes enjoys a close commercial cooperation with Betdaq and can confirm discussions regarding a potential future acquisition”. If some reports in the Irish casino news are to be believed then Ladbrokes could be only a few weeks way from concluding a potential €40 million deal. This would be a welcome relief to investors who are generally reported in the Irish casino news as being disappointed in the online operations of Ladbrokes and falling behind the competition. From our own experience of online casinos we still think that Ladbrokes casino is one of the best around offering a very wide choice of casino games particularly at the download casino. Betdaq is of course more of a sports betting medium with punters placing bets against each other rather than against the house.
