First, Major League Soccer returned to the pitch, celebrated by the MLS Is Back tournament. Next, the NBA and NHL set up their bubbles to begin their return to play process. Major League Baseball was next up to the plate to launch their season.
As all of North America’s big league sports returned to their respective playing surfaces from their COVID-19 pandemic induced shutdowns, everyone from sports fans to sports betting sites were in a mood to celebrate.
The oddsmakers over at Intertops sportsbook came up with several methods to allow all to join in on the party.
Intertops isn’t just another online sports betting site. At one time, they were the only online sports betting site.
Intertops accepted the world’s first ever online sports bet on Jan. 17, 1996, opened the first mobile sports betting site in 2000 and is still one of the world’s largest sites for sports betting, casino, poker and games. The website offers over 4,000 daily wagers for fans of every type of sport and boasts customers in over 180 countries.
Over the last three years, Intertops has paid out over $500 million in winnings to its customers around the world. The company offers one of the lowest minimum stakes on the internet, building a reputation as a dependable and serious partner for all types of wagering enthusiasts.
When something you started is suddenly and shockingly taken away, once that element returns, who wouldn’t want to celebrate?
The NBA gathered its players in Orlando, Fla., encasing them all inside a COVID-19 protected bubble as they set out on July 30th with a goal of eventually crowning a champion and handing that team the Larry O’Brien Trophy.
Just as the NBA is rewarding the best of the best via its playoff tournament, Intertops opted to do likewise for its elite NBA bettors.
The top ten customers who make the highest wagering profit betting on the NBA between the restart and the end of the season will receive cash prizes ranging from $600 to $100. A total of $2,000 is up for grabs to players who prove to be savvy enough oddsmakers to garner a spot on that leaderboard.
The NBA got underway on July 30th with the Utah Jazz facing the New Orleans Pelicans and the Los Angeles Clippers taking on their city rivals the Los Angeles Lakers.
The NBA Finals are slated to begin on Sept. 30th.
Drop That Puck
The NHL set up bubbles in Edmonton and Toronto and began the Stanley Cup playoffs on Aug. 1st. However, long before that took place, Intertops was already rewarding hockey fans for their time and patience.
When the NHL puts its season on pause on March 12th, Intertops put their customers who like to bet on hockey on notice that everyone was a winner.
The sportsbook opted to pay out on all teams that were leading their respective divisions the day the regular season was halted. That meant backers of the Boston Bruins (Atlantic Division), Washington Capitals (Metropolitan Division), St. Louis Blues (Central Division) and Vegas Golden Knights (Pacific Division) all cashed winning tickets even though the league didn’t reach its regular season finish line.
Supporters of the NHL’s other 27 teams weren’t left behind when the cash was doled out, though. Intertops opted to refund stakes on all other teams – even those who were already out of the title race.
