UK 49s is an online gaming site that is dedicated to football games. It has two different games: Football (forthcoming) and Craps (last year). Teatime allows you to place a wager, make a pick and decide who you would like your team to be. It is similar to the famous Betting websites like Ladbrokes and Interval. In UK 49s you are allowed to play with real cash or play for fun with "virtual" money. The best part about this site is its free entrance to play!
There are two different ways to play with this site: either you play the "Free" version that gives you teatime predictions for each game, or you play the "Pro" version which gives you the stats on every player and also lets you see the week's schedule. I have been playing with the "free" version for some time and have found it to be quite fun. You can see the latest stats for all players, including the latest injury report as well as the week's predictions from various experts, and you get to see which players have been making the biggest buzz through the week.
The free version gives you a limited amount of picks each week. The "pro" version gives you a much larger array of picks to choose from and gives you the opportunity to trade in your teams until you have a winning combination. So far I have had the best experience on the "pro" version, although the free version has given me some fantastic ideas that I am planning on exploiting for my betting strategy. One thing that I think the developers of the UK 49s lunchtime draw must realise is that whilst having access to such fantastic statistics is brilliant for football fans, sometimes they can affect our betting strategies, so be aware of this before you bet!
