Blog: Gambling on SSFIV, bring it on! (ADDED VIDEO)
Online gambling site offering odds on Super Street Fighter IV
1up.com reported yesterday about an online betting site based out of the UK offering betting on a championship fight for Super Street Fighter IV. While this almost sounds like a dream come true to a degenerate gambler such as myself, it's not because it's dumb.
First of all, I wouldnt trust sending my money overseas to Paddy Power. Having a glimpse at their site it looks like they're main focus is to take bets on absolutely ridiculous shit like "who will Cheryl Cole date first?" They have an entire page devoted to Cheryl Cole bets! I'm all for Cheryl Cole and I'm all for stupid prop bets like this, but I'm telling you they only do this shit because they're probably an awful sportsbook and offering dumbass lines gets them publicity like this SSF4 bet. Plus why am I going to throw down $100 on Ryan Hart to win when most Street Fighter players are shady individuals who would steal from their mothers and he could just go put down 3 grand on the other asshole to win at 2/1 odds and lose on purpose.
Plus gambling and Street Fighter have been around for ages with money matches and with me and Dave betting $1 that we can beat Jimmy in straight rounds or without having half of our energy taken from us, and that's really all we need.
GAMBLING TIP: IF GOUKIJONES IS PLAYING, ALWAYS BET AGAINST HIM.
