1st April, 2021 – The 2021 MLB season gets underway today and the attractive promotion awaiting baseball fans at Intertops Sportsbook is no April Fool’s joke. The world’s first-ever online sportsbook is offering a prize pool of $2K to be won with MLB wagers this month.

‘We wanted to give our customers something special to celebrate the start of the new season and so decided to reward the real MLB experts out there,’ said an Intertops spokesman. ‘We have a total of $2,000 prize money waiting to be won in our Baseball Challenge and the ten customers making the biggest profit wagering on Major League Baseball in April will all enjoy a slice.’

A Baseball Challenge leaderboard will be regularly updated on the Intertops website so that all interested customers can see how they are faring in the battle to win the $600 cash prize on offer for 1st place.

However well your favorite team does this summer (and hopefully, fall), Intertops Sportsbook remains the place to be for attractive odds and special offers as the World Series chase unfolds in the months ahead.

March 23rd, 2021 – The race to Europe’s premier soccer title continues in early April with the Elite Eight of the Uefa Champions League. Intertops Sportsbook celebrates the crème-de-la-crème of European club soccer with another attractive parlay boost offer for its customers.

‘We have had such great feedback over the course of the season that we just had to make this offer again,’ commented an Intertops spokesman. ‘All customers have to do is place a successful 4-fold ‘Game Winner’ parlay on the quarterfinal first-leg duels and they will be rewarded with $50 extra winnings from us – just like that, no hidden conditions.’

Manchester City currently looks a cert to regain the Premier League crown this season and the Intertops bookmaking team also see the Citizens as the club to beat in Europe. The road to City’s first ever Champions League crown, however, is still a tricky one. Guardiola’s team may be a strong favorite to dispose of Borussia Dortmund at this stage, but a semifinal battle with either defending champ Bayern Munich or last year’s finalist PSG still provides a tough hurdle even before the final this May. Still, is now the time to get your money on City? Intertops is currently offering attractive odds of +220 on the crown coming to the Etihad.

March 16th, 2021 – Selection Sunday is done and dusted and the field for the 2021 Big Dance is all set to take to the floor. Intertops Sportsbook, the world’s oldest online wagering platform, celebrates one of the biggest sporting celebrations of the year with another amazing offer.

‘Our annual March Madness Bracket is one of our biggest promotions with a huge $25K waiting to be given away,’ explained an Intertops spokesman. ‘Customers can fill out their tournament bracket for free on our Special Offers Page, place at least $100 worth of bets and then keep their fingers crossed.’

‘We know that a perfect bracket is very unlikely and that is why we are still giving the prize money away. Qualifying customers placing in the top 25 will each receive an equal share of the cash.’

The NCAAB men’s championship tournament is a huge event and fans can’t wait for it to tip off – even more so this year after the postponement in 2020. Intertops Sportsbook is ready and waiting with attractive promotions and second-to-none odds on all the on-court action.

March 8th, 2021 – There is less than a week to go before this year’s Selection Sunday and Intertops Sportsbook, the world’s first online bookmaker, is ready and waiting with the first of several exciting March Madness promotions this year. Customers depositing into their accounts will receive 50% extra up to $100 from the company.

‘We know how much this tournament means to our customers, especially in the light of last year’s cancellation, so we want to get the ball rolling by providing more money to wager,’ explained an Intertops manager. ‘Redeeming bonus code 21MAD100 will mean an extra 50% added to the deposit – now we think that is a crazy way to get things going.’

Before the first round of basketball action at the 2021 Big Dance gets underway, Intertops will be revealing a tasty range of additional promotions with a whole lot of cash prizes up for grabs – so all customers are advised to keep coming back to the site to check them out.

February 11th, 2021 – European soccer’s elite competition is back in the starting blocks after the winter break with sixteen teams set to battle it out for Champions League crown. Intertops Sportsbook celebrates the restart by giving away $50 cash prizes as extra winnings for parlays.

’Soccer fans across the globe have been waiting patiently for this moment and we want to help make the knockout phase of the Champions League even more exciting,’ an Intertops manager explained. ‘Customers placing successful ‘Game Winner’ parlays on the first four matches in the last sixteen will receive $50 extra winnings from us – just like that, no questions asked.

The action gets underway on Tuesday, February 16th with Barca hosting PSG and Leipzig facing Liverpool. On Wednesday Sevilla plays Borussia Dortmund and Juventus travels to Porto – and these four games all count for the Intertops promotion.

The world’s first online bookmaker currently sees defending Champions League title-holder Bayern Munich as the team to beat, but with the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool, Barcelona and Paris St. Germain all raring to go, anything is possible as the rest of the season unfolds.

February 7th, 2021 – Better late than never! The first tennis Grand Slam of the year is about to get underway and Intertops Sportsbook celebrates the tennis superstars down under with another attractive offer for its customers.

‘We thought... How about extra parlay winnings for the tournament?... and then just went straight down to organizing it,‘ an Intertops manager explained. ‘Parlay wagers are always very popular, especially in the early stages of the biggest tennis tournaments, so we decided to make them even more worth our customers‘ while this year.‘

Intertops customers placing winning ‘Match Winner‘ parlay (min. stake $20, min. odds +900) on the 2021 Australian Open action will automatically be rewarded with extra winnings – either $50 or $100 depending on the size of the original stake.

Once again it is tennis legends Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal leading the list of tournament favorites, but in the crazy world that we currently live in, we think that this could be the year for a major surprise. Do you have a nose for an underdog who could be about to enjoy a huge moment of glory in Melbourne?

February 2nd, 2021 – The Super Bowl countdown clock keeps on ticking and the special offers from Intertops just keep on coming. The world’s oldest online Sportsbook has just announced yet another great deal for its customers providing the opportunity to get 3 x $50 in losing stake returned as free bets.

‘The interest in our wide range of Super Bowl props is already huge, but we thought a little free-bet nudge would further add to the pre-game entertainment,’ explained an Intertops Sportsbook manager.

‘We love to spice things up a bit by giving our customers the chance to get stake returned on three of our most interesting Super Bowl markets.’

The Sportsbook has chosen the ‘What Happens First’, ‘First Touchdown Scorer’ and ‘Fantasy Football Matchup’ offers for this great promotion and full details can, as always, be found on the website’s Special Offers page.

With just five days to go until Sunday’s kick-off in Tampa Bay, the Intertops experts still see the defending champion Chiefs as a 3.5-point favorite to retain their crown, but would you really count out the power of Tom Brady coupled with the likes of Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Antonio Brown? Whatever happens on the field this weekend, we are certain it will be a thriller.

January 28th, 2021 – With just over a week to go until kick-off in the ‘game of all games’, the world’s first ever online Sportsbook has come up with another exciting promotion for its customers. An amazing $10K cash prize is up for grabs for a successful ‘exact score’ wager on the Super Bowl.

‘Of course, this is not an easy market to predict, but we think we have made it really worthwhile having a go this year,’ commented an Intertops customer. ‘Every wager of $10 or more on the Super Bowl exact score is really a ticket to win the $10,000 prize we have on offer.’

The customer who fulfils the promotion requirements and correctly predicts the final score of the Chiefs vs. Buccaneers showdown on February 7th will be $10K richer on the following day. Should more than one customer qualify, then the prize-money will be evenly divided.

All information on this stunning promotion, which is part of the Intertops 25th anniversary celebrations to commemorate the world’s first ever online wager in 1996, can be found on the company’s Special Offers Page online.

January 26th, 2021 – The NFL season reaches its climax with a dream final and the world’s first ever online Sportsbook celebrates the Chiefs vs. Bucs duel with another great bonus offer for its customers.

‘Tom Brady vs. Patrick Mahomes is an electrifying prospect and we know that we can expect a whole lot of interest in this showdown,’ said an Intertops manager. ‘We want to make things even more exciting for our customers by offering a $100 deposit bonus.’

Intertops customers who make a deposit up until Super Bowl kick-off on February 7th can redeem bonus code SBLV100 and then enjoy 50% extra up to $100 to wager on the huge amount of props available on the sportsbook’s mobile-friendly website.

All eyes are on the duel between the GOAT (Brady) and the man expected to fill his shoes in the future (Mahomes), but the Chiefs and the Buccaneers have a wide range of other top stars (such as Kelce, Hill, Evans and Gronk) who are looking to light up the world’s biggest sports stage. Tampa Bay will become the first team ever to enjoy home advantage in the Championship Game, but the defending champ from Kansas City won’t be fazed by that as it looks to repeat.

The early line sees Kansas City as a 3-point favorite, but plenty is possible as the clock continues to tick right through to kick-off.

January 19th, 2021 – It really was a day to remember, when in January 1996 the still-young sports betting company Intertops accepted the world’s first ever online wager and changed the face of the gaming industry forever.

A Finnish customer placed a wager on Tottenham Hotspur to beat Hereford United in that season’s FA Cup soccer competition and hey presto a whole new era was born.

‘We are still incredibly proud to be the oldest online sportsbook in the world, but we have certainly not been resting on our laurels since then,’ commented an Intertops manager. ‘Our motto is ‘Trust The First’ and we are working on a daily basis to earn that continued trust from our thousands of customers around the world.’

To celebrate a quarter of a century of top odds, innovation and second-to-none customer service, the Intertops Sportsbook team has come up with a very special promotion that will run throughout the year. On the 25th of each month in 2021 a special prize draw will take place with 25 x $250 in cash prizes awaiting lucky current customers each time.

‘We think that our regular customers will appreciate a $250 anniversary present waiting in their account,’ added the Intertops manager.
