LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Aug. 17, 2012) - As the new Barclays Premier League season prepares for kick-off, Freebets.com looks forward to another busy campaign. The betting directory has seen its users enjoying a bumper summer of sport, and as punters stake real interest in the start of the new season the site's new odds calculator is set for action. See Freebets.com's bet calculator in action here: www.Freebets.com/betting-calculator.
Visitors to the site have direct and free access to the bet calculator, which was created to give the site's visitors a clear idea of how the online betting odds systems work. Using the calculator, browsers input the relevant odds information and receive the betting calculations in terms of returns and winnings.
A tab on Freebets.com's homepage links directly to the calculator, which also contains a tutorial video describing how to use it. Players can add up to 15 selections to their virtual betting slip, with drop-down boxes for punters to bet on odds, result, each way, dead heat and Rule 4 considerations. Following their selections, players can then enter the kind of bet they wish to place, varying from accumulators to round robins and Lucky 15s to Heinz bets.
Paul Garner, of Freebets.com, described the feedback the betting calculator has received as "positive", he added, "it is a great addition to the site and has added an additional user base to the site".
He said, "The Premier League season always sparks a flurry of activity, both in terms of bookmaker promotions and punter interest. They have waited several months for the season to start and are understandably eager to check the odds of their team's chances in the major competitions, and their expected returns from any prospective bets. Our bet calculator allows them to do just that, and the page has been a great success since we included it on the site."
Following the season's Community Shield curtain-raiser, there is renewed optimism throughout the betting industry that this season will see an increase in betting activity. Manchester City's last-gasp League Championship triumph in 2012 has reinvigorated interest in the already vibrant gaming sector. The Sky Blues' 3-2 defeat of Chelsea saw a burst of betting promotions geared at the start of the league campaign proper, with Freebets.com's Latest Offers page showcasing the most recent specials offered by online bookmakers. These included free bets, top goal scorer free bets and money back specials across the full program of English football.
