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.

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. The best teams in the US are battling it out in regional tournaments to find the prestigious Final Four who will be heading to Indianapolis. Kentucky, Duke, Wisconsin and Villanova have been handed the top seeds, but anything and everything is possible as March Madness begins. Intertops Sportsbook gets you into the game with extensive NCAAB odds and several March Madness exciting offers.
“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 Sportsbook offers hot odds on every matchup, but also celebrates the NCAA Men’s College Basketball Championship with a bonus, free bet and its annual bracket contest.
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.
“One way or another we’re paying out on this one,” said Intertops Sportsbook manager. Even if no one picks a perfect bracket, we’ll divide the $25K between the 25 players with the most correct picks.”
$100 March Madness Free Bet -- Everyone wagering $1,000 or more on the NCAA Men's Division 1 Basketball Championship tournament by the end of the regional tournaments on March 29th can claim a $100 Hoops Free Bet from Monday, March 30th.
March Madness Bonus -- Intertops is adding 20% to one deposit per customers until March 25th.
Intertops offers complete NCAAB odds on the First, Second and Third Rounds (March 17 – 21), the Regionals (March 26-28) the National Semifinals (April 4th) and the ultimate NCAAB Championship (April 6th). College basketball odds are listed under the Basketball tab at Intertops Sportsbook.
Intertops Sportsbook is trusted by sports fans all over the world. It took the first ever online sports bet in 1996, and offers pre-match and live odds on thousands of sporting events all year round including NFL, NBA, European soccer and all four tennis majors.
