Press Releases - News | Intertops Sportsbook

November 5th 2019 – The new College Hoops season gets underway tonight and basketball fans among the Intertops customers have two reasons to celebrate. Not only does the world’s first online sports betting platform provide hot daily odds on all the NCAAB action, but it is sending a lucky customer to the climax of March Madness at the end of the season.

’March Madness is one of the top highlights of the sporting year and we love to have our customers there to enjoy the action live,’ said an Intertops manager.

’All our players have to do is wager on the season through the end of February and have a bit of luck in our prize draw. The winners will receive a weekend at the Final Four in Atlanta with top tickets and hotel accommodation.’

There is, of course, a very long way to go to the 2020 Final Four, but Intertops bookies already have some strong favorites for the college hoops crown. This year it is the Michigan State Spartans top of the pile, but Kentucky, Duke, Kansas and North Carolina are right there on their heels.

’It should be a great season and we hope that our special prize will add to the fun,’ the Intertops manager added.

October 22nd, 2019 – The new NBA season tips off tonight with the Raptors hosting the Pelicans and the Lakers facing their city rivals, the Clippers, at the Staples Center. The world’s first ever online Sportsbook celebrates the return of the basketball stars with yet another attractive offer for all fans.

‘Players who regularly wager on the NBA action will be rewarded in style this year,' said an Intertops spokesman. 'We will giving everyone who wagered at least $250 on the first week of the action a bonus code for their next deposit worth 100% up to $100.'

The Intertops bookmakers have also been busy compiling odds on the season ahead, giving all players the chance to follow their early hunches and then rake in the profit at the end of the season.

It’s the Los Angeles rivals Lakers and Clippers leading the way in the Intertops NBA title-chase, but they should be challenged by the likes of the Bucks, Sixers, Rockets and, of course, the Warriors.

October 15th, 2019 – The NFL fall continues with exciting Week 7 action and the world’s first ever online Sportsbook is ready and waiting to give its players the chance to bolster their winnings. Intertops customers who place a winning four-team ‘Game Spread’ parlay (min. stake $15) this week will be rewarded with a $50 boost – just like that, no strings attached.

‘We are expecting plenty of betting action this week as things really begin to hot up in the battle for the postseason,’ said an intertops manager. ‘So we thought we would give our customers an extra incentive to try their luck with a parlay.’

‘Just four winnings options in combination are needed and the $50 boost will automatically be credited next Tuesday,’ he added.

The Week 7 action gets underway on Thursday with an interesting NFC West duel between the Chiefs and the Broncos. While K.C. goes into the game riding a two-game losing streak, the hosts have been buoyed by two straight wins and are hungry for more in front of their own fans. The quarterback comparison between shooting star Patrick Mahomes and veteran Joe Flacco should also provide some extra spice to this divisional duel.

September 9th, 2019 – Intertops Sportsbook has always taken great pride in being the very first sports-betting company to accept an online wager way back in 1996. Almost a quarter of a century later this pioneering feat that opened the door for a multi-billion dollar industry has been acknowledged by that industry.

In January 1996, Finnish soccer fan Jukka Honkavaara wagered $50 on Tottenham Hotspur to beat lowly Hereford United in an English FA Cup tie and ‘scooped’ a total net profit of $2 for his efforts. On September 19th 2019 that very same man will be inducted into the Sports Betting Community Hall Of Fame in a ceremony in London – a proud moment for both the player and the Sportsbook which made it all possible.

Jukka has remained loyal to Intertops ever since, giving substance to the company’s promise that its players can always ‘Trust The First’.

‘I admit that I discovered Intertops by chance way back then,’ Honkavaara says, ‘But once you know that you are playing at a company that will take the best care of you, then of course you stay.’

The new Hall Of Famer still loves to bet on English soccer and now has a special eye on the progress of Norwich City with their prolific Finnish goalgetter Teemu Pukki. Ice hockey is, as with many Fins, Jukka’s second great sporting love and he is happy to take advantage of the attractive odds offered by Intertops on all major leagues in both Europe and North America.

‘Intertops Sportsbook is extremely proud to have customers like Jukka,’ commented a manager. ‘We are delighted that he has received such a personal honor from our industry and we like to think that the decision reflects on the quality of service that we have been offering ever since that historic day in 1996.’

Intertops geared up to the start of the new NFL season with plenty of exciting offers available for its players. A 50% deposit bonus gave them the opportunity to boost their account up to the end of Week 1, whilst regular wagers could lead to four $100 free bets during the season and also the chance to win tickets to the Super Bowl in February next year.

September 3rd, 2019 – The 2019 NFL season gets up and running on Thursday when the Bears and the Packers go toe to toe at Soldier Field. The world’s first online Sportsbook appreciates the importance of football for its customers and has a very special offer waiting to add that extra spice to the fall.

‘We love to reward regular players with something nice and that is just what we have done,’ commented an Intertops manager, ‘We have split the regular season up into four sections and our customers can qualify for a $100 free bet at the end of each section simply by wagering on the NFL.’

As always, full details of this and every other Intertops promotion, including the current NFL Deposit Bonus, can be found on the website’s Special Offers page.

The bookmakers at Intertops are expecting another sensational season from quarterback phenom Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs playmaker leads the Sportsbook’s list of players expected to throw the most TDs, closely followed by veterans Matt Ryan and Aaron Rodgers. Another young man looking to make a splash is Cleveland’s Baker Mayfield who now has a certain OBJ added to his list of targets – a fact that has shortened his odds in this category to +1200.

Whatever aspect of the upcoming season you wish to wager on, Intertops is certain to have the value you are looking for.

August 29th, 2019 – It’s that time of the year again and football fans across North America are longing for their number one sport to kick off again. The long road to Super Bowl LIV gets underway on September 5th when the Chicago Bears host their archrival the Green Bay Packers and Intertops celebrates the return of the gridiron gladiators with an attractive deposit bonus offer.

‘What could be better than extra cash in your account for NFL, we thought,’ said an Intertops manager, ‘And so are giving our customers who use bonus code NFL100 50% extra up to a tasty $100 on their deposit.’

The world’s very first and most-trusted online Sportsbook has a huge range of betting offers available on the NFL season ahead. The race to the national crown is looking tough to predict with quality teams coming from every angle. It’s the perennial Patriots currently leading the way, closely followed by the Chiefs, Saints, Rams and Eagles.

Next on the list – and you are reading this right – are the Browns! After years of being the laughing stock of the league, things are really looking up in Cleveland and who knows, a team comprising the likes of OBJ, Mayfield and Chubb could well be a real Super Bowl contender this year.

August 26th, 2019 – The final tennis Grand Slam of the 2019 season gets up and running in New York today and the world’s first-ever online sportsbook has another exciting offer available for its customers. Anyone placing a successful US Open parlay (Match Winners options, min. odds +900) will receive a boost of up to $100 extra winnings on that wager from the bookmaker with no rollover requirements.

‘This type of promotion has proven extremely popular throughout this tennis year and so we are pleased to reward our loyal customers again at Flushing Meadows,’ commented an Intertops manager.

The race to take the men’s title looks likely to go through world number one Novak Djokovic. The super Serb has been in blistering form in 2019 – taking both the Australian Open and Wimbledon crowns – and would appear to have the edge over rivals Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer in New York. There is however, a new generation of future stars already hungry to put the ‘old boys’ in their place and the likes of Daniil Medvedev, Dominic Thiem, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev will be hoping to enjoy a real Grand Slam breakthrough in the coming fortnight.

August 5th, 2019 – The world’s most glamorous domestic soccer league gets up and running on Friday when last season’s runner-up Liverpool hosts new-boy Norwich City in the Premier League opener at Anfield. Intertops, the world’s oldest online Sportsbook, gets its customers in the mood for the exciting EPL weekend action with another attractive parlay boost offer.

‘We know that thousands of our customers just can’t wait to see the likes of Manchester City, Tottenham, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United in action again – and so we thought we would give them something special,’ commented an Intertops manager.

‘We will reward all successful Match Winner-parlays placed on Matchday 1 (min. odds +900) with up to $100 extra winnings – just like that, no strings attached.’

The Intertops bookies are expecting another duel between Guardiola’s Citizens and Klopp’s Reds for the title, but there are six title-hopefuls and all have the staff to make a title charge. At the other end of the table, newly promoted Norwich, Sheffield United and Aston Villa will be hoping to establish themselves in the top-flight, but could well be battling to avoid the drop when May 2020 comes around.

July 15th, 2019 – The final Major of the 2019 golfing year gets underway in Northern Ireland on Thursday and online Sportsbook pioneer Intertops has come up with another attractive offer for its customers. Any wagers of $20 or more on a player who ends the tournament at Royal Portrush Golf Club in second place will see the stake returned as a free bet.

‘We thought it might be a nice consolation prize following the disappointment of just missing out on a lucrative winning wager,’ commented an Intertops manager. ‘We know from experience that our stake-back specials are appreciated by our customers and we are sure that this will be no exception.’

The Intertops bookmakers expect local hero Rory McIlroy to be right up there in this year’s title chase as he will be especially keen to succeed in front of his home Northern Irish crowd. Competition will be fierce, however, with the likes of Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson and, of course, Tiger Woods leading the challenge from across the Atlantic.

As always in the British Isles, the weather could prove to be a factor, opening the way for an underdog to make a serious title charge and perhaps making plenty of risk-hungry Intertops customers a whole lot richer?

July 1st, 2019 – The third tennis Grand Slam of the 2019 season gets up and running today and the world’s oldest online Sportsbook is ready and waiting with exciting odds and a very special promotion for its customers. Intertops players who place successful parlays on the action in west London (min. stake $20, min. odds +900) will enjoy up to $100 extra winnings per wager credited to their account – just like that, without any strings attached!

“We love to offer our customers something special when the biggest tournaments of the year come around,” said an Intertops spokesman. “And to be honest there isn’t anything much bigger than Wimbledon”.

“This kind of promotion has proved popular in the past and we love to reward customers who have taken a risk and been successful.”

It is, of course, the ATP Tour’s big three – Djokovic, Federer and Nadal – who went into the tournament as the top seeds, but plenty is possible on grass and many specialists on this surface are waiting their chance for a bit of the limelight. The right hunch on any given day could really produce a tasty profit.
