Professional alternative to the National lotto, they have lots of lotto game running everyday. The prizes are also pretty good. I played the Irish lottery game a few times because it's twice as easy to win as the UK one. And with 5 correct balls you get a guaranteed £50,000. The reason it's twice as easy is because you pick from 42 numbers and not 49 numbers like with the UK version. The game I play the most however is Soccer Supremo. This is where you predict the result of Europe's top football matches. I seem to have more luck predicting euro matches compared to the Premiership. I watch the La Liga matches on Sky quite abit so I usually bet on Spanish games. The site is pretty basic looking but easy to register on and extremely simple to use. For Soccer Supremo it takes two clicks then you are presented with a list of 13 matches. You then click in the boxes whether it is a home win (h), draw (d) or away win (a). There are prizes for getting 11 and 12 matches correct, with the jackpot going to the Soccer Supremo who predicts all 13 matches correctly. I find it alot of fun for hardly no outlay of cash. And it increases my enjoyment of watching games I wouldn't care the result of. I would look no further for placing your football pools results online.

Vernons is a very easy site to use, but the instant win account history dose not work, this is in your account and should be statements of all your bets, win, and losses for the instant wins, ie bingo, roulette. Also the responsible gambling is only on the instant win site, with being a part of ladbrokes and with ladbrokes being a member of the rga. The responsible gambling should be placed on the home page as requested by the rga in the social responsibilty codes.

vernons now have responsible gambling on the entire web site, this is good, but age verifcation has not yet been in place, so since this site was established back in 2002 offering lottos and pools children under 18 could have been registering, the responsible gambling notes that vernons have on their site is a copy of ladbrokes with certain paragraphs taken out. one of them being;We carry out electronic age verification checks on all customers who use payment mechanisms that we know can be used by children. In addition, we carry out age checks on a random selection of all other customers regardless of the method of payment.

Internet Content Rating Association (ICRA) In order to assist in the prevention of under age gambling, Ladbrokes have registered our internet gaming sites with ICRA. ICRA maintains an ICRAchecked database of self-labelled sites, which gives users clear advice to help them find what they want, to trust what they find and to avoid content that they regard as inappropriate for themselves or their children.

age verifaction i would consider to be of the upmost importance to any site that accepts credit cards. the games on vernons are the same as ladbrokes, so i would advise anyone to play instant win games on the site that has taken measures to help, support, and placed facilities to help people not get addicted to gambling.

one of these facilities is in your account and they can set themselves a weekly deposit level of monies, this stops you going ott with your depositing, once you have set, eg a £50.00 level for the week you can not go over this.

vernons do have this facility now, but it took them 5 months for them to apply this to their site,which when vernons are part of ladbrokes plc and ladbrokes are a member of the rga, and the rga advice their members of age verification, player protection, and social responsiblity and also asked all their members to have implemented these codes by the end of 2005, which ladbrokes have, but vernons choose not to, but applied instant wins on there site at the begining of 06, i find quite irrisponsible from a company that proudly states they have been establishe since 1925, and also say they are in the bussiness of helping people to become millonaires, but offered no player protection to them while they are in the process of gambling to become a millionaire.

As ladbrokes have the same software as vernons i would go for the site that has been the most responsible and who gives their customers a better service.
