As the Grand National approaches and the Masters gets underway here's the best Tweets from those in the industry

The sporting weekend fast approaching is almost unrivalled. With a full football schedule, The Masters underway in Augusta and just the small matter of the Grand National at Aintree it’s fair to say that there’s no shortage of exceptional sport available to watch this weekend.

It’s a huge festival for bookmakers as they look to capture as much business as possible in a race where all betting logic tends to go out the window. Form and analysis is swapped for who has the nicest silks and the craziest name as the nation goes Grand National mad. Of course there’s plenty of racing around the flagship race, and professional gambler Nick Goff said what many are thinking:


Away from the world of sports and over in the US it emerged this week that there’s a sports betting website with a Florida address. Rahul Sood, CEO of Unikrn took to Twitter to make this tongue-in-cheek statement:


Dustin Gouker shared Rahul’s sentiments and tweeted:   “This is amazing, Sports betting website with a US address. Would hope federal investigators are knocking on the door”
