Software developer NetEntertainment has teamed up with Formula 1 and CART driver Stefan Johansson to launch Speedbet.com, a new web site designed especially for auto racing fans.
Speedbet.com is the first Java-based (no download) casino and motorsports betting site where players can bet on their favorite drivers, as well as play casino games such as blackjack, roulette, and poker.
Bettors can wager on Formula 1, Nascar, Speedway, and CART races, using expert pre-race analysis to make smart betting decisions. They can also bet on soccer, golf, and tennis matches in between races.
Both NetEntertainment and Johansson are excited about the new site and their partnership. “I’m very happy with our cooperation with Stefan Johansson,” said Pontus Lindwall, CEO for Net Entertainment. “Stefan is a big name in motorsports.”
“I have a huge interest in technology, not only when it comes to motorsports,” commented Stefan Johansson. “I’m highly excited about combining cutting edge technology like online casinos and racing.” Johansson was personally involved in the design of the new web site and casino games.
NetEntertainment, which also runs CasinoDomain and Cherry Casino, chose Johansson as the official spokesman for their new race-themed casino because of his long and distinguished history in the auto racing world.
Johansson started racing carts in Sweden when he was 12 years old, and spent the next decade perfecting his craft. He moved up to the Formula 1 circuit in 1980, where he worked with the Ferrari and McLaren-TAG teams before switching to the North American CART racing league in 1991. He raced with CART for several years before retiring and establishing Johannson Motorsports.
But that wasn’t the end of his racing career. Stefan impressed his Togel Singapore fans when he took up racing again in the mid-’90s, winning both the grueling Le Mans 24-hour race and the 12 hours of Sebring in 1997. These days, he’s driving for Audi in the European Le Mans Series.
Auto racing enthusiasts from around the world will appreciate the racing theme at Speedbet.com. The back of the cards are checkered, there are pictures of cars throughout the site, and various racing items from trophies to tires and helmets are carefully incorporated into every game. The slot machines even have animated cars taking off from the starting line.
Speedbet.com offers new players a 30 percent sign-up bonus. There is also a special treat for die-hard race enthusiasts – a chance to win two, three-day tickets to the Pepsi 400 race in Daytona, Florida. Players have to guess the winning team of the Le Mans 24-hour race in France to win the tickets.
The casino isn’t the only thing Stefan is involved in. He also has a signature line of Swiss-made watches and an indoor go-cart racing track in Indianapolis (home of the Indy 500).
