This season of Premier League football was expected to be an unusual one, thanks to the fact that all three of the likely title winners had changed their managers in the close season – with the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United being particularly momentous. United have had the anticipated awkward start to life post-Fergie, while City and Chelsea are also labouring to integrate new bosses and changes in playing style, leaving Arsenal to capitalise by storming to the top of the table. So are the Gunners the team to put your title bets on?

They weren’t expected to be contenders, by pundits, bookies or the average football betting punter, but they cannot be ruled out on current form. However they would need to get extremely lucky with injuries –, as they would struggle to replace the likes of Ozil or Giroud. Indeed given Arsenal’s lack of squad depth, and Manchester United’s issues in defence and midfield, it is hard to see past either City or Chelsea for the title. City have the overall quality while Chelsea have the experience of winning titles – both at playing and managerial level – so if you don’t want to bet on either of these two, playing Soccer Safari is probably your best bet.

Indeed this five reel soccer-based slot, found amongst Gaming Club casino games, is so good that choosing to play it ahead of placing a Premiership title bet is unlikely to be a decision you regret. The game centres on the idea of a World Cup for animals, with players including lairy lions, bludgeoning buffalo and rampaging rhinos, all captured brilliantly by smart video graphics. Like most slot machine games it also stacks the payout odds firmly on the side of the player, with wild (Soccer Safari logo) reel icon, a free spins feature and no less than thirty pay lines – not to mention a top jackpot of $8000.
