Online casino specialists 32Red have toasted Swansea City’s 3-2 win over Arsenal by giving customers a £32 bonus. The Welsh side, sponsored by 32Red, has been enjoying a resplendent first season in the top flight, overcame the former Premier League champions live on Sky and it was enough for the firm to cough up. Mark Quayle, head of marketing explained: “To see Swansea beat Arsenal by any score would have been great, but to see them win live on Sky Sports with our trade mark 32 as the scoreline couldn’t have been better for our brand. We’re currently giving away GBP 32 to all new casino players and the coverage from yesterday’s game meant we gave away more than usual, but that doesn’t mean we’ll be stopping any time soon!”
