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.

April 1, 2015, London, UK (Press Release) – US college basketball betting peaks at Intertops Sportsbook this weekend during the Final Four showdown in Indianapolis. The field has been narrowed to The Kentucky Wildcats, Wisconsin Badgers, Michigan State Spartans and Duke Blue Devils, but no team is a shoo-in.
The Kentucky Wildcats started the Madness as a strong favorite for the national crown and they still are, but that doesn’t mean that the 2015 Final Four is a forgone conclusion. After being given a real scare by Notre Dame on Saturday, coach John Calipari’s boys now face a Wisconsin team desperate to avenge a one-point national semi-final defeat against the Wildcats last year. The Badgers have looked good in the tourney so far and there is no reason why they shouldn’t run the unbeaten favorites real close.
The second semi-final sees Michigan State face Duke in a battle between two of the highest-profile coaches in the game. Tom Izzo guided number 7 seed Michigan State to the title in the South Regional and believes his Spartans will have the battling qualities to upset Mike Krzyzewski’s Duke in their Saturday showdown in Indianapolis.
“We have three number one seeds in the Final Four and a really dangerous underdog,” commented Intertops Sportsbook manager.
“Our players really know their hoops, though. We’ve had some heavy action on the Spartans to surprise in the South from the word go. Many customers who bet on Michigan State to win it all at odds of +5000 will be facing a nail-biting Easter weekend now!”
“Early upsets mean that none of our customers had a perfect March Madness bracket, but the $25,000 prize we put up will be split between the top 25 entries.” Intertops gives the Final Four some extra spice by offering another $100 Free Bet competition. Players who correctly predict the new college hoops champion on the Intertops Facebook page are in the draw for a $100 free bet on Tuesday (Wager required; details on Facebook page.)
Intertops Sportsbook has been trusted by sports fans all over the world for more than thirty years and offers odds on thousands of sporting events including NFL, NBA, European soccer and all four tennis majors.
March 17, 2015, London, UK (Press Release) – US college basketball betting picks up this week at Intertops Sportsbook as the race for the national title gets underway in earnest.

Kentucky, Duke, Wisconsin and Villanova have been handed the top seeds, but anything and everything is possible as March Madness begins.

“At 34-0 for the season Kentucky is obviously the best in the country and quite possibly the best college basketball team we’ve seen in many years,” observed Intertops’ sportsbook manager. “Outside of the top four, early wagering would indicate that Notre Dame and Gonzaga could be teams to watch.”

Intertops will pay $25,000 for a perfect bracket – 63 correct picks. Since entries can only be accepted up to the start of the second round games on March 19th, players don’t have long to make their selections.

29 January 2015, London, UK (Press Release) -- With just days to go until Super Bowl XLIX, the matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots is almost too close to call. However as Sunday's showpiece draws closer, Intertops Sportsbook is seeing plenty of action on many of its varied prop markets.
The Patriots are currently a one-point favorite going into the biggest single sporting event of 2015, and bettors are backing tight end Rob Gronkowski to add to his two postseason touchdowns so far. ‘Gronk’ is -143 to score a touchdown at any time in the Super Bowl and +650 to score the first.
Seattle's main threat will likely come from Marshawn Lynch, the -167 favorite with Intertops Sportsbook in the ‘Anytime Touchdown’ market and +550 to get into the end zone first. The man known as ‘Beast Mode’ recorded an NFL-leading 17 regular season touchdowns compared to Gronkowski's 12, and the Seahawks running back is -125 to score a touchdown before Gronkowski in Sunday’s game.
"As is often the case with a game between two evenly-matched sides, we have seen a lot of interest in our prop markets, especially the touchdown scorer markets," Intertops' Sportsbook Manager said.

25 November 2014, London, UK (Press Release) -- With the NFL preparing for a busy Thanksgiving schedule, Intertops Sportsbook is marking the occasion with a host of different Turkey Day offers for its loyal players, including the chance to pocket free bets.
There is a no-juice line available on game-day when the Detroit Lions host the Chicago Bears in their annual Thanksgiving home game. Jim Caldwell's side is a seven-point favorite to bounce back from the weekend's reverse against New England against a Bears outfit that has lost its last two road games.
The other traditional Thanksgiving hosts, the Dallas Cowboys, left it late this time last year to edge past the Oakland Raiders. This time out they welcome the Philadelphia Eagles in a crunch game at the summit of NFC East, with both teams entering the match-up with an 8-3 record, and the Cowboys are three-point favorites to edge ahead of their divisional rivals.
Whoever wins on Thursday will take a big step towards finishing top of the division, and Intertops is offering an attractive stake-back deal: If either team leads at half-time, but fails to close out the game, a stake-back of up to $100 will be available on losing bets from the '1st Half Spread' market for this duel.
Rounding off the day's action is a battle between two sides struggling to repeat last season's form, as reigning Super Bowl champions Seattle Seahawks are at risk of falling to third spot in NFC West. They take on a 49ers team that joined them in the playoffs last year, but currently holds an identical 7-4 record and is a one-point favorite, trailing surprise division leader Arizona despite the Cardinals falling to Seattle at the weekend.
The second of Intertops Sportsbook's losing stake-back offers comes in this game. Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick are among the most exciting quarterbacks around, and both know how to get into the endzone themselves. Up to $100 will be refunded on losing "1st Touchdown Scorer" bets for this game if either scores a rushing TD on Thursday.
In addition to all the game-specific offers, Intertops Sportsbook is offering players the chance to win themselves a tasty prize by taking part in a prediction contest on Facebook. Players must correctly post all three NFL Thanksgiving winners on the online sportsbook's Facebook page and wager on the action to be in the draw for more $100 free bets.
Intertops was the first sportsbook to take a sports bet online in 1996, and has been the most trusted site for players around the world ever since. It offers pre-match and live betting on all the biggest sporting events of the year, across a variety of sports including NFL, NBA, tennis and golf.
