Football Widow or Football Winner?

By on March 25, 2013

Let me set the scene. It’s a Sunday afternoon and Arsenal and set to kick-off against Tottenham Hotspur in the big north London derby. You’ve settled down into your favourite chair, got a few beers in the fridge and a pizza in the oven. Then, disaster….

Your other half comes in and starts bending your ear about going to the garden center, or she want’s to go to Tesco to do the weekly shop, or she has some chores around the house for you to do. Typically, an argument may ensure where she calls herself a ‘football widow’ and claims the football is more important than her (we don’t have the heart to tell her that’s true, do we?!).

Am I the only one this has happened to? In a perfect world your wife or girlfriend would be football fans themselves and would join you to watch the match but if like me, your other half can’t stand football, here’s a tip for you. Encourage her to take up Footballers’ Widows at Jackpotjoy.

We’ve all seen the adverts on TV with Carry-On star and Eastenders’ Queen Vic landlady Babs Windsor but trust me, Jackpotjoy can be your football saviour! They offer a wide range of bingo and slot games but their new Footballers’ Widows instant win game is hilarious and you could keep her happy for hours with just a £10 investment as she’ll get a free £25 welcome bonus to enjoy.

Your other half will try to throw various essentials past the man in her life – stuff like the TV remote, a six pack of beer, a games console, the car keys, lads’ mags etc – sometimes she scores but sometimes the man keeps the item. Each time she gets something past you, the more money she can make.

The game is addictive, in a good way of course, so should keep her occupied for a couple of hours leaving you in peace to watch the football. But with a bit of luck, she might get hooked on other games in Jackpotjoy’s stable like all the different online Bingo games they have on offer, leaving you with even more free time to maybe catch a La Liga match or watch an action film that she won’t let you watch.

It’s just a suggestion, but it’s certainly worked for me. In fact, it’s one of the best £10’s I’ve ever spent! The Mrs is kept entertained while I’m left to enjoy the football without the needless arguments or trips to Tesco when all I do is check my phone for the latest score.

So that’s my tip next time your other half bends your ear during the game. We have to help each other out as much we can as we gear up for another exciting end to the Premier League season!
