Royal Ascot a great marketing investment for Betfair

Britain's society horseracing event of the year - Royal Ascot - is currently running, and giving massive publicity returns to its new five year, million sterling sponsor Betfair, according to reports in the UK media.

Betfair was able to name its terms to the Queen's course in the agreement, and the betting exchange made sure that it secured all external advertising branding rights.

Not only does the online betting exchange have a banner every 25 feet the length of the seven-minute walk from the station to the lush course – replete with half-a-dozen Betfair arches along the way – but things will become even bolder, brasher and brassier, reported The Guardian newspaper.

That is because Betfair's branding will be placed above every one of the stalls on Gold Cup day....and every one of the stall-handlers will be compelled to wear a Betfair branded bib.

It is a canny marketing ploy from Betfair, which through the deal is ensuring every BBC television viewer becomes acquainted with the gambling operator's business. Even in the currently depressed sponsorship market the infiltration of the Beeb, despite it's traditional abhorrence of advertising, suggests that Betfair achieved a real bargain in its sponsorship deal with the course.

Another name familiar to both online and land gamblers will be Ladbrokes, which sponsored Ladies' Day at Ascot and reportedly hopes this will turn the event into Ladybrokes.com Day.

I usually unzoom to 75% and letters are still big enough to read. No idea why everything has to be so BIG now. It's like "at LCB you don't have to use your glasses!"   And this is for example of another forum, same notebook. http://screenshot.sh/ovXWKjqDSnDd9 Don't you think that it looks MUCH BETTER? Plain and simple. Using all screen's width. No idea why there is so much space wasted. http://screenshot.sh/odTYLUAexJvuF More than half of width wasted for me. It really looks bad. I know you put lots of hard work for new design but it's so annoying..     "

I can buy cash item and next purchase may not be cash items (25$ skrill or neteller or paypal) again, but other items. If I buy others items in total worth min.5$, after can I buy cash item  (25$ skrill or neteller or paypal) again. Yes you must spend (successfully) $5 (total) on shop casino chips in between every cash item purchased.  After you have received $500 in cash, it's $10 (total) in between."

    "I don't think that should take as a personal attack, I mean that have happened to me also in several casinos, some of casinos don't except scanned documents and in one time it takes me over week to get photos which casino finally except, hard work but what can be done if they have rules and want money out "
