We Are All Cricket Stars

For most of us the memory of our Cricket Star promotion may be fading as fast as England’s chances of winning the respect of the world’s other cricketing nations, but for one lucky winner that memory will be only too vivid.

This weekend sees the ICC World Cup Final, two tickets for which that very winner won as the grand prize in our Cricket Star promotion back in February. And now comes the culmination of that prize, with full hospitality tickets awaiting them for the final on Sunday in sunny Melbourne. I’m sure they’ll be thinking of us.

While the rest of us have to be contented with watching the final from these very sidelines 9,443 miles away, we can at least live that dream through the medium of online gaming. I, for one, will be playing Cricket Star while Australia take on New Zealand at the MCG on Sunday.

As a northern hemisphere boy I can be purely neutral, but as an online slots fan I will definitely be routing for my team to come in first. My wife is promising to go out for the day, so it’s early to bed on Saturday night and rise and shine for a whole hog cricket fest on Sunday. Or is that a whole wallaby cricket fest?

Either way, all my wagers will earn me VIP points in this weekend’s Big Cash Weekend Race, so I could end up a winner after all.

And so could you. Shall we break out some tinnies or what, Bruce?
