Supreme Ventures introduces Quick Sports

first_imgSupreme Ventures Limited, through the brand ‘JustBet’, has been making strides in becoming the preferred brand for sports-betting for both regular punters and novices alike. Wagering on international sports such as football, basketball, cricket, and American football has become a habit for many sports fans as the fixtures of the various leagues run throughout the year. These fixed-odds betting options benefit from the sportsman who is trying his hand at wagering and the seasoned bettor who sees a new more predictable game for his valued betting dollar. Live international sporting events have only a few games scheduled on particular days and only during the respective seasons. This restricts the content available for sports-betting fans and does not provide many options and continuity. On January 14, 2016, Supreme Ventures launched its virtual sports betting product branded ‘Quick Sports’ in 10 pilot locations. The product is now available to existing and potential customers at 50 JustBet locations islandwide. Quick Sports virtual football matches and horse races allow for five minutes of betting time per event followed by two to three minutes of actual game time. There are nine betting types offered on football and seven betting options on horse racing. The minimum bet on each betting type is $20. The events run on a daily schedule starting at 7 a.m. up to 2 a.m. Matches, races, and odds are displayed using computer-animated 3D graphics on two dedicated TV monitors inside select agent locations. Winnings are available for payment to customers at the end of each event. Currently, horse racing and football are the two virtual games in play for now, however, the game portfolio will be expanded with more sports in the latter part of the 2016 calendar. Quick Sports will be officially launched at Supreme Ventures flagship store, State Mall, Cross Roads, St Andrew, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. today.last_img read more

Giroud sinks Saints to take Chelsea to FA Cup final

first_img0Shares0000Chelsea’s French striker Olivier Giroud celebrates his goal against Southampton during the FA Cup semi finals on April 22, 2018LONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 22- Chelsea booked an FA Cup final showdown with Manchester United as Olivier Giroud tormented Southampton again with a sublime strike in Sunday’s 2-0 win at Wembley.Giroud has made a habit of scoring against Southampton and the France forward was their nemesis in a one-sided semi-final. Opting to select Giroud instead of Alvaro Morata proved a shrewd move by Chelsea manager Antonio Conte as the former Arsenal star produced a tremendous piece of skill to break the deadlock early in the second half.Giroud has feasted on Southampton this season, scoring twice to spark Chelsea’s 3-2 win last weekend and also netting a late equaliser against them for Arsenal in December.His fourth goal for Chelsea since his January signing was followed by a late header from substitute Morata, setting up a heavyweight final against United at Wembley on May 19.That will be Chelsea’s last chance to win major silverware at the end of a troubled season.Chelsea’s 13th FA Cup final appearance will be a repeat of the 2007 showpiece, when Jose Mourinho’s men won 1-0.The Blues, back in the final after losing to Arsenal in May, last won the competition in 2012 and are bidding to lift the trophy for the eighth time.Winning the FA Cup might not be enough to convince either Conte or Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich that their two-year partnership should be extended.Conte has spent much of the season complaining about Chelsea’s failure to back his transfer plans, while several of his players are believed to be unhappy with his demanding training sessions and intense personality.The Blues face a tough task to qualify for the Champions League via a top four finish in the Premier League as they trail fourth placed Tottenham by five points.Against that backdrop, winning the Cup would at least provide an uplifting conclusion to a frustrating campaign.For Southampton, the focus returns to their desperate battle to avoid relegation, with just four games left to climb out of the bottom three.There were a significant number of empty seats in the Southampton end of the stadium and the stay-away fans were vindicated by their struggling team’s lacklustre display.– Nimble Giroud –Southampton’s Polish defender Jan Bednarek (L) clears the ball from the path of Chelsea’s French striker Olivier Giroud during the English FA Cup semi-final at the Wembley Stadium on April 22, 2018They had little chance of a famous Cup upset with Eden Hazard at his stylish best.Hazard threatened with a fierce strike that flashed just over from 25 yards.Then the Belgian embarked on a surging run from deep in his own half before slipping a pin-point pass to Willian, who cut back inside and blasted against the crossbar.Giroud was warming to the task of giving Southampton another headache and he went close to breaking the deadlock with an acrobatic volley before half-time.Chelsea’s dominance was finally rewarded in the 46th minute.Cesc Fabregas lofted a pass towards Hazard and he controlled brilliantly in mid-air before slipping the ball through to Giroud.There was still work for Giroud to do and he side-stepped three defenders with surprising grace, his nimble foot-work giving him just enough space to slot home from close-range.Hazard was virtually unstoppable and he scythed through again before curling just wide.Southampton’s Charlie Austin appealed in vain for a penalty after Giroud left his arm out to block the forward’s header.Finally coming out of their shell, Mark Hughes’ side almost drew level when Nathan Redmond’s long-range drive was pushed away by Caballero.But it was too little, too late and Morata came off the bench to wrap up the win with just his third goal in his last 19 appearancesMorata, who has failed to impress since his move from Real Madrid last year, was furious after being hauled off at Burnley.Just days later, he was all smiles when he nodded home from Cesar Azpilicueta’s 82nd minute cross.0Shares0000(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Backline trio is key for Highland

first_img The unselfish attitude hasn’t been lost on Paolo, who cites the versatility of his backline among the team’s biggest strengths. “They’ve all played sweeper on their respective club teams, so they’re all like little gnats back there pressuring the ball,” he said. “I tell them to go mark someone, and they take it as a personal challenge to make sure they can’t even turn, let alone score. I can’t say enough about what they’ve done.” Anderson and Thielhart were accustomed to playing with Amy Butala and Jennifer LaMoure on defense last season, before Paolo decided to give the sweeper responsibilities to the freshman Sargent halfway through the season. “It’s hard to bring one person into the mix, but we just clicked right away,” said Anderson, who has helped the Bulldogs win an area-best 38 games the past two seasons. “I think it’s definitely a huge asset (to have more than one sweeper). If Erika were to get hurt, Amanda or I can go back into her position, and we’d still be OK.” After Paolo made the decision to move LaMoure to an outside midfield position to bolster Highland’s attack, the result was more goals – and more shutouts. “We have the best chemistry you can find in high school,” said Sargent, who has a goal and three assists. “We never fight, there’s no arguing, and without the two of them, I wouldn’t feel whole back there. I know a lot of teams respect our defense because we’re so solid and we stay strong (throughout the game).” Although the chemistry has helped Highland record some impressive victories, including Thursday’s 4-0 triumph over previously unbeaten Lancaster (14-1-3, 5-1-1), they’ve yet to win at Quartz Hill. The Bulldogs hope to tonight. “It gives us so much motivation because it’s one of our biggest games of the year,” Thielhart said. “Everyone wants to put so much effort into the game and everyone wants to contribute. It’s something we really want to do.” Erik Boal, (818) 713-3607 erik.boal@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card With senior goalkeeper Kellie Drenner and junior defensive midfielder Alex Fulladosa, the three defenders have been instrumental in Highland (16-2-2 overall, 7-0-0 Golden) surrendering only 11 goals and recording 11 shutouts entering today’s 6 p.m. showdown at rival Quartz Hill (9-5-2, 5-1-1). “For us, it’s a really big pride thing,” said Thielhart, who scored her first goal of the season in Tuesday’s 8-0 romp over Antelope Valley. “We can’t even let (our opponent) get a shot off or we feel like we’re letting our team and our school down.” One of the primary things Paolo stressed when he took charge of the program last season was team defense. The result was a school-record 18 shutouts, the most of any area girls’ team. “Teams have to be built from the back forward or else it won’t work,” said Anderson, who ranks among Bulldogs leaders with six assists. “It’s exciting to score and assist on goals, but I really like (playing defense). “At the beginning of every game, we have team goals and personal goals. One of them is, obviously, to keep our (run of) shutouts going.” Samantha Johnson and Farryn Townley are enjoying record-setting seasons for Highland High’s girls’ soccer team. Although Bulldogs coach Juan Paolo is impressed with the production of his offensive standouts, ask him which statistics most delight him, and without hesitation, the words “goals allowed” and “shutouts” come out of his mouth. Johnson’s 28 goals – tying Sahar Haghdan’s school record (2002-03) for most in a season – and Townley’s 23 assists, which passed Diana Mendez’s mark of 22 set last season, have been big reasons why Highland is alone atop the Golden League standings. Thanks to the backline play of seniors Hillary Anderson and Amanda Thielhart and sophomore Erika Sargent, the Bulldogs plan on staying there. last_img read more
