The sport of NASCAR racing was formed in 1974 by Bill France. In the almost 40 years since its creation, the sport has taken off and gained quite a following not only in the United States but in many foreign countries as well. As part of most sports, there are also many sports bets that are placed on NASCAR. Given the nature of the sport, the types of bets are bit different than in other sports where there are just two options for winners.
While it is perfectly acceptable to bet on which driver will win the race out of over 40 other drivers, another kind of bet can be placed which has a better chance of winning. This is known as a match-up bet. Rather than focus on all 40 plus drivers, the sportsbook will select two drivers for each match-up bet. The bettor must decide of the two drivers, which one will place higher at the conclusion of the race. The beauty of this bet is that it doesn’t matter if a driver finishes in 30th place, so long as it is higher than the other driver in the match-up. When sportsbooks report the odds with this bet they use moneylines.
Usually when making a sports bet, there is a gap in time until one knows the results. To pass the time, consider playing a motor bike themed slot machine game or pokies; (for Australian players) at a casino. The five reeled Motor Slot Speed Machine is one choice. The symbols in this game include a scatter symbol which is the speed meter. The jackpot symbol is the flag symbol. Obtaining five of these will award the 5000 coin jackpot. The other symbols found on the reels of the Motor Slot Speed Machine include a traffic signal, hand gloves, road divider, petrol pump, a tire and a motor biking jacket.
