Midseason Review – Minnesota Vikings

Chicago Bears v Minnesota Vikings

The 2015 season was quite a big one for the Minnesota Vikings as it marked their final year playing at the TFC Bank Stadium and was also the first time in six years that they won the NFC North and clinched a spot in the playoffs. Although their hopes were ended with a narrow 10-9 loss to the Seahawks, hopes were high for this year.

They currently find themselves sitting in second spot in the NFC North, behind the Detroit Lions, but their form has lacked consistency – with 6 wins and 5 losses (at the time of writing). Their chances of improving on a decent season last time out were dealt a body blow before the action got underway when Teddy Bridgewater – their first choice quarterback – was ruled out for the season with an injury to his knee. They then went on to lose Adrian Peterson, their star running back, in the victory over the Green Bay Packers, but with quarterback Sam Bradford signed from the Eagles and slotting in well the Vikings looked to be able to overcome these setbacks. With an impressive 5 straight wins to start the campaign, few would have bet against them clinching the NFC North again and storming into the playoffs, but things went wrong for them just as quickly.

The early season form that brought great victories like the 22-10 win over reigning champions of the NFC Conference, the Panthers, was lost as they slumped just as suddenly. Perhaps the worst defeat during this period was the 10-21 reverse to the Chicago Bears, where they struggled throughout – although many consider the earlier 10-21 Eagles defeat to be the low point, due to the nightmare suffered by Bradford – who had been outstanding in place of Bridgewater up to that point. Although the Vikings defense looks one of the more solid in the division – and indeed the conference – they have ongoing offensive issues that impede their chances. It looks like being a frustrating season for Vikings fans and those who have bet on them, based on current form and 50/1 Super Bowl odds, so betting on $5 Million Touchdown at a mobile casino instead is perhaps smarter.

This is a slot game that has five reels, twenty pay lines and a great NFL theme throughout. You will hear roaring crowds at key points in the game and see football players, referees whistles and cheerleaders on the reels. Another great part of the game for NFL fans is the bonus round, where you are pitched into a match and have to score the winning touchdown. All you need to do for a payout is score a matching row of icons on a reel and you may even win the $5 million jackpot.
