Free contest will send one player at the world’s first online sportsbook to Super Bowl XLVI

5 October 2011 (St. Johns, Antigua) – With several teams under intense pressure to perform, NFL Week 5 promises some exciting match ups. Intertops Sportsbook anticipates heavy NFL betting this weekend. Rivals New York Jets and New England Patriots come face to face this weekend as they battle for position in the AFC East. Every dollar wagered on this and all the rest of the weekend action is one entry in Intertops’ free Super Bowl contest.

“The Jets-Patriots game is the one to watch this weekend, I think,” said an Intertops spokesperson. “The Patriots’ offense is great, but their defense may not be as strong. The Jets have disappointed so far and are now under pressure to perform.”

The top attraction in the NFC should be Green Bay’s visit to Atlanta. The defending Super Bowl champ has come roaring off the blocks this season with four straight wins, but Matt Ryan and the Falcons should prove to be a stern test, especially at the Georgia Dome.

Intertops has the Patriots a 9-point favorite over the Jets and gives the Packers 5.5 points over the Falcons.

Other NFL bets seeing a lot of action at Intertops Sportsbook are the Eagles-Bills and Lions-Bears games.

“The high expectations in Philadelphia have yet to be fulfilled and Buffalo is arguably the sensation of the season so far – it promises to be an intriguing contest.”

“After two big comebacks against the Vikings and the Cowboys, Detroit is favorite to win again at home to division rival Chicago, but if Jay Cutler can finally gets the Bears offense going they could be quite a threat.”

Intertops Sportsbook posts more NFL bets than any online sportsbook. One player betting on NFL football is going to Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis February 5th in style. Every dollar wagered on Intertops’ NFL bet offers during the Regular Season earns one entry into the end-of-season draw for an amazing Super Bowl XLVI prize package that includes accommodation at a top hotel, two reserved top tickets to the game, plus expenses for flights. Intertops current Super Bowl odds have just been updated following Week 4 play.

Many others have come and gone since Intertops took the very first online bet fifteen years ago but it’s still one of the most popular and most trusted online casinos, poker rooms and sports books in the world. It continues to earn its reputation for courteous and efficient customer service and hassle-free deposits and withdrawals every day.

Intertops Poker frequently adds extra freerolls to its weekend poker tournament schedule but the pot’s much bigger this weekend. Players that deposit this Wednesday, Thursday or Friday will get a ticket to a special $2500 Freeroll tournament to be held on Sunday.

This tournament bonus is on top of the up to $200 reload bonus that’s also available this weekend.

$2500 Freeroll Free ticket to everyone that deposits by Friday.

“We’ve been extra busy this week with our World Cup Leaderboard tournaments,” said Intertops poker room manager. “When we give a reload bonus things always get busier, and we don’t often do such big freerolls. So it’s going to be a crazy weekend I think!”

Bets Long-established Intertops has pre-season and regular season NFL odds online now

August 16, 2007 (St. John’s, Antigua) – The first online sportsbook to post NFL lines this season is the most reliable choice for American bettors looking for a safe book to take their football wagers. Although sports bettors typically have accounts at several sportsbooks, legislative developments that have forced many operators out of the U.S. over the last year have prompted many bettors to consolidate into one or two accounts with the most trustworthy books remaining in the American market. – the first company to ever take an online sports bet in 1996 – has earned players’ trust over the last eleven years and is one of the few online sportsbooks that has remained open to bettors in the U.S.

“I like to gamble on sports,” said one sportsbetting forum post. “I don’t like to gamble on whether or not I’m going to be able to collect my winnings!”

Intertops hasn’t had problems accepting payments or paying out winnings like the books that have left the American market did. They’ve stuck by their American customers.

"So many big books have closed their doors to Americans,” said Intertops bookmaker Andy Donahue. “We’ve had a lot of action on NFL bets ever since we posted our early lines in June."

This weekend, one of the hottest pre-season match-ups is in New York on Friday where the Minnesota Vikings (currently Super Bowl long shots at +8000) take on the NY Giants (+4000 to win the Super Bowl). Saturday’s Green Bay Packers vs Seattle Seahawks game could be a close one and is also definitely one to watch. The Packers and Seahawks are +5000 and +2200 respectively to win the Super Bowl. odds currently favour the New England Patriots (+4000) to win it all next February.

From this Friday until Sunday August 19th, Intertops is giving a 20% reload deposit bonus (maximum $250) on all deposit methods. Most market competitors will not be giving away offers like this until the first weekend in September – when, of course, will also be back with another great deposit special. But with 20 days to go until the September 6th NFL kick off, is kick-starting the season with this "20% for 20 days to go" special for its customers.
