Man U fans can play Live Roulette and Live Blackjack is coming soon.
Following the launch of mobile casino app and social gaming casino last year Manchester United will now be the brand behind the first football-branded online live casino. Last Thursday Manchester United Live Casino in cooperation with Marathonbet was launched and currently it offers Live Roulette while Live Blackjack will be available by the end of the year. Anyone older than 18 will be able to enjoy casino games in a familiar setting of Old Trafford and the immersive environment of Manchester United-themed casino.
The cooperation between the popular football club and Marathonbet was established in August 2015, upon signing the agreement about sponsorship and online betting partnership. Marathonbet stepped into the picture after Bwin, who were Manchester United’s partners for three years.
Last Thursday the new partnership was crowned with the official launch of the first football-branded online live casino. The ceremony took place at Old Trafford in the presence of football stars Gary Pallister, Jesper Blomqvist and Andy Cole. The new online casino featuring the imagery and theme related to Man U provides an opportunity for all Manchester United fans to engage in live dealer action 24 hours a day, any day of the week. For the time being the punters can join the tables of Live Roulette, while Live Blackjack is expected to be added in the coming months. Only persons above 18 will be able to play and win cash and other prizes. The word from Marathonbet’s R&D department is that the new casino is unique with “the aim to offer an immersive environment where players can enjoy online Live Roulette while having the feel of being part of Manchester United. It’s also a chance for fans to mix with like-minded players. The co-branded environment is truly one of a kind in the industry and offers players a unique gaming experience.”
Though this is first real-money online casino that revolves around Manchester United, the large pool of Man U fans (over 650 million) already had a chance to try their luck in an online social casino which was launched last year in cooperation with KamaGames.
