October 21, 2015 (Press Release) – Three online satellite tournament champions from Intertops Poker will be competing in the CPT Punta Cana Main Event November 6 - 8. The poker room is making original content (stories and videos) available to affiliates for promoting the brand on their sites.
“We’ve awarded three $4100 prize packages and we’re sending a video crew to the Caribbean. That’s a big investment,” said Intertops poker manager. “Online satellite tournaments have proven to be very appealing to players, though. So we hope affiliates will take advantage of the content that we create for them – stories and videos – to promote the brand on their sites.”
“I’m really looking forward to joining the players in Punta Cana,” said Larry Colcy, aka The Gamblogger, who will be producing daily video reports from the CPT Punta Cana Main Event. “I’ll have daily tournament results as well as interviews with the Living the Dream players and other players at the tournament. I’ll also follow them around with my video camera as they enjoy the resort!”
Three online tournament champions have won their way to the Caribbean: 32 year old Austrian poker pro, Daniel Montagnolli; Derek Scallon, a Chicago poker pro and film producer and Phil Cardella, a Pittsburgh CAD designer and purely recreational player.
CPT Punta Cana will be at the luxurious five-star Punta Cana Hard Rock Hotel November 3rd to 8th. Last November, American poker pro Ari Engel defeated a field of 507 to claim the trophy and $177,045 for his victory in the 2014 Punta Cana Poker Classic. Cheap, direct flights from North America as well as the mix of amateur and pros make the CPT Punta Cana an event not to be missed.

“I prefer a game that relies more on skill,” said another poker player. “But Blackjack is easy -- it can be a nice break once in awhile.”

September 15, 2015 -- St. Johns, Antigua (Press Release) – An Intertops Casino player had an incredible lucky streak the other night when he won $120K playing Let 'Em Ride and then over $182K on a network progressive, making a total of over $300K.
Donovan A., 30, said he plans to buy a place in Las Vegas with his winnings. He enjoys slots and plays them a lot online and in the local casino. He said he doesn’t actually play Let ‘Em Ride a lot so winning on the poker-based game was pure luck.
“I’ve played it enough to know how it works, but it definitely was just a lucky win,” he told an Intertops Casino customer service rep.
Let 'Em Ride is a simple game where players are paid based on their five-card hand. There is no dealer hand to compete with.
“I knew it was coming when I saw the first three cards,” Donovan recalled. “I jumped out of my chair! Later I went to the casino to celebrate with champagne and tip some dealers.”
Donovan enjoys playing in the local casino but thinks the odds are better online: “I like casinos because of the excitement, but I prefer online casinos because the odds are better for both casino and sportsbook.”

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.
September 1, 2015 -- St. Johns, Antigua (Press Release) – Oom pa pa, it’s time to raise a tankard and celebrate Oktoberfest. This month Intertops Casino will award $150,000 in casino bonuses during its "Oktoberfestivities".
Intertops Casino players earn points when they play and receive bonuses based on their scoreboard ranking. Every Monday until October 5 a total of $30,000 in Oktoberfest bonuses will be paid to the top 300 players and the leaderboard will be re-set for another casino bonus race.

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.
