September 8, 2015, London, UK (Press Release) – The 2015 NFL season begins September 10th when the Steelers and Patriots go toe to toe in the Week 1 opener. Intertops Sportsbook has been taking thousands of bets on pre-season predictions for the season ahead, but one of the most popular wagers has been “RGIII: Team for the 2016 season”
“Robert Griffin III wasn’t picked as the starting QB for the Redskins this season - the spot was given to Kevin Cousins - after Griffin suffered a concussion in Week 2 of the preseason,” noted an Intertops bookmaker. “When RGIII was drafted in 2012, he was one of the most anticipated Rookies in the NFL, but several injuries led to today’s situation and to some experts saying that he should make a move to get his career back on track.”
A recent NFL rule change says that the ball for the extra point field goal or “PAT” (Point after Touchdown) will be placed on the 15-yard line and no longer on the 2 yard line, making the extra point more difficult to be good. So “Regular Season PAT Success Rate – Over/Under 95.5%” has also been seeing a lot of action.
Intertops Sportsbook, which took the world’s very first online sports bet, is starting what looks to be an exciting season of American football with a $500 Free Bet offer. Everyone wagering on the NFL during regular season has the chance to qualify for $500 extra in time for the playoffs.
Intertops also offers a 20% Kick Off Bonus worth up to $100 on a deposit through September 13, 2015. To claim this NFL bonus, players should quote bonus code NFL20 to a live chat agent when they make their deposit.
The full-featured online sportsbook is offering competitive odds on every possible aspect of the football fall ahead to keep fans happy from the word go.

The winner of an online satellite series last spring won a trip to the CPT St Maarten in May but didn’t do as well at the live tournament as he’d done online. “I played OK, just not my day. On the bright side, I had a fantastic time in St. Maarten before and after the tournament!” he wrote in the Living the Dream poker blog where online tournament winners share their live tournament experiences.

July 28, 2015 -- St. Johns, Antigua (Press Release) -- An Intertops Casino player had an incredible winning streak on his three favourite slot games the other night, winning a total of about $120,000 before he called it a night. John R., a VIP player at the online casino, popular all over the world, won most of his loot in the free spins features in Pay Dirt ($60,000), Coyote Cash ($30,000) and Texan Tycoon ($20,000). Adding some smaller wins on Shark School, Triple Twister and Mister Money made it a six-figure night.
Each of these popular online slots from Realtime Gaming has symbols that trigger free spins. John had numerous free spins that paid $5000 to $10,000. The best was a $17,500 pay out on a free game in Pay Dirt.
The 55 year old father of three said “I generally only play three games – Pay Dirt, Coyote Cash and Texan Tycoon -- all which I was successful on that night. After those first few wins in free spins I thought ‘Things are going my way!’”
The lucky player plans to put his recent winnings toward a boat for him and his wife.
“It’s nice to win sometimes!” he chuckled when chatting with his Intertops VIP agent. There are no casinos where John lives so he enjoys the convenience of playing at home with Intertops where he’s been a regular player since 2002.

April 16, 2015 -- St. Johns, Antigua (Press Release) – The winner of a recent online satellite tournament series at Intertops Poker is on his way to Italy this weekend to compete in the WPT Venice. Lukas M, known as Buck$Bunny in the online poker room, won a $2,200 WPT Prize Package that includes €990 buy-in for the WPT National Main Event plus premium hotel accommodation near the casino and cash for travel expenses.
They were 22 players in the WPT Venice online satellite tournament Final where Lukas won his prize package.
"I used a re-buy and an add-on. During the tournament I was one of the Big Stacks and I found good spots in all-in situations. I think patience is very important as well as aggression at the right time. At the end, the players were scared and so it was possible to get some chips with raise in position."
"I realized that I might win when we were 3-handed." "I eliminated one of the opponents in an all in situation KQ>K7 and won a huge pot. At the heads-up, the other player was crippled and so it was over very quick."
"I don't play lots of major events. Usually, I'm playing cash games."
"In 2013 I played a 330€ side event at the EPT Berlin and last year I won a seat at the FPS Cannes for 1.100€. I reached day 2 with only 25BB, and I busted fast without cash. Hopefully, it's time for a catch in Venice this weekend!"
A premiere event on the WPT European circuit, the three-day Gioco Digitale WPT National Venice will be played at the luxurious Casino de Venezia, the oldest gaming establishment in the world. The tournament begins April 17th and the Final Table is on April 20th. The game will be No Limit Texas Hold’em. Players will begin with 30,000 chips. Blind levels last 40 minutes. The prize pool will be €200,000 guaranteed.
Later this month three other online satellite winners will be in the Caribbean representing Team Intertops at the $200K GTD CPPT St Maarten after winning $4100 prize packages last weekend.
