The Premiership has seen a gradual increase in competitiveness over the past few seasons, and 2013/14 has already demonstrated that anyone can beat the top clubs if they perform well enough.

However, despite an evening out of the overall quality, the title race is still liable to come down to a race between three sides – Manchester United, City and Chelsea. The reason for this is that these are the clubs with enough strength in depth to be able to handle injuries to key personnel that always occur over a long season.

The great start that Arsenal have made has seen their odds cut to just 7/2 by bookies, and with the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud in fantastic form, a lot of football betting punters will be placing their bets on the Gunners now. The problem is, should players such as either of these suffer a lengthy injury absence, do Arsenal have anyone else of a comparable standard to step in? The answer is no, and this is why gambling on the Gunners could well be premature, although we will have a stronger idea who can stay in the race by January, so waiting until then and playing an online casino football themed slot machine is the best tip.

One of the best of these slots is Game On, a three-reel game with cutting edge video graphics and one of the craziest variants on the football theme around. Here the star players are all animals, brought to (hilarious) life on the reels, making Game On a slot with appeal for anyone wanting a light-hearted spin on football. However the joking only goes so far, as the $10,000 jackpot on offer with this game is to be taken very seriously, while the $0.01 lowest bet level means you can play it all night without having to worry about your finances. Something that is certainly not the case with prices at Premiership football games.
