Intertops Sportsbook March Madness Bets Qualify for Final Four Trip Contest Draw, Deposit Bonus and Cash Prizes

Final Four Deposit Bonus Gives up to $100 for Basketball Bets Free

final four bonus and march madness contest intertops sportsbook basketball betThe climax of the college basketball season is upon us at last, but fans can still place their March Madness bets at Intertops Sportsbook and qualify for the world’s first online Sportsbook’s free Final Four Contest and $5000 March Madness Draw. Every dollar bet on the Final Four weekend is an entry in the draw for a trip to next year’s Final Four showdown, and those wagering at least $500 in total on the March Madness action are automatically entered in a draw for $5000 cash with no rollover requirements. Until April 4th, everyone wins with the Final Four Bonus that gives players an additional free 20% deposit bonus up to $100.

There’s also just a few days until Intertops’ $25,000 March Madness Bracket Contest is decided.

“We got more entries than ever into our Bracket Contest,” said an Intertops oddsmaker. “Quite a few people predicted the outcomes of the East and West region second round games, but then things got more difficult. The Southwest region was altogether tougher to call and the Final Four lineup is very much a surprise.”

“None of the number one and number two seeds made it to the Final Four, while the VCU Rams -- a number 11 seed in the Southwest region – have made it to the showpiece event this weekend. You see why they call it March ‘Madness’!”

Even if no one correctly predicts the outcome of all 63 March Madness tournament games, Intertops will split the $25,000 March Madness Bracket contest prize money between the 25 players with the highest number of correct picks.

Every dollar wagered on March Madness games at Intertops until April 4th is one entry in a free draw for a 2012 Final Four Weekend prize package. The package includes hotel accommodation, 2 top tickets to the Semi-Finals & Final Game and expenses for flights. Contest details and basketball bet offers are available at

Intertops, which recently celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of the day it took the very first online sports bet, welcomes players from around the world. It is known for quick, hassle-free deposits and withdrawals and excellence in customer service.

WinADayCasino Has $165,900 Jackpot Winner on 'Tropical Treat' Slot Machine

wad-tropicaltreatjackpot-16.jpgA Canadian online slots player has won a $165,900 progressive jackpot at Sylvia M., known as POWERBALL on the site, won the massive jackpot last week playing the Tropical Treat slot machine, one of the online casino’s newest flash technology games with enhanced full-screen graphics and rich sound effects.

“The progressive jackpot can be won on any of our online slots,” said Michael Hilary, manager of the slots and video poker site. “But since it’s been the Game of the Month for March and has been played more than usual over the last few weeks, I guess it’s not surprising that’s where this latest jackpot was won.”

“Actually, ever since it launched last month I’ve been mostly playing the newest game, Busted,” said the jackpot winner who has been playing regularly at WinADay since 2009. “I love the comic strip characters and the Bonus Game where you choose whether you’re a cop or a robber keeps you playing even longer. But I saw Tropical Treat was the game of the month so I figured, why not?”

As the Game of the Month, every 500 spins on Tropical Treat during March earns one ticket in a random draw at the end of the month. One lucky player will win a $250 casino bonus, another lucky player will win a $100 bonus, and 3 lucky players will get a $50 bonus each. (April’s Game of the Month will be Jackpot Jinni) At the end of the year, there will be a draw for a vacation worth $2000. But POWERBALL won’t have to wait until then for her tropical treat.

“I want to do something special for my two daughters,” she told the WinADay Customer Service agent that arranged her immediate payout. “I think I’ll invest a lot of it in my home. I’ve been wanting to renovate my kitchen but it’s so expensive. I guess this is the time to do it!”

To qualify for the huge jackpot pay out, POWERBALL got five Gold Compass symbols with a total bet of at least $5.

“I figured, the jackpot hasn’t been won for a couple of months. And every few weeks when it gets over $150,000 you just know it’s going to be won any minute. That’s when I make a point of betting enough to qualify for the jackpot. That’s my little slots strategy and it sure worked this time!”

Tropical Treat is a 50-payline slot machine with free spins and amazing fun-in-the-sun video graphics. Animated butterflies flutter across the screen as the bet amount is selected and the number of paylines to be played is chosen with buttons on a sand castle.

Busted is a retro comic book-style cops and robbers adventure with a spine-tingling Bonus Game. It’s three games in one: a classic 17 pay line video slot, a Double Up round and a Cops and Robbers bonus game.

WinADay’s innovative games designers are putting the finishing touches on yet another new game. The fairground-themed game will be available in April.

Slots Player Spins Incredible Six-Game $139,957 Winning Streak at

Online slots player wins at every game he plays with bonus games and free spins extending playing time

$139K Winning Streak at US Friendly Jackpot Capital online casino slotsMost regular online slots players have their good nights when they get lucky and have a fun winning streak. But, to win $10,000 or more on every game you try is every online casino player’s dream. This dream came true at last week when one lucky player tried six online slot machines during a two-day period and walked away with a total of $139,957.77 in winnings.

“I had played Aladdin's Wishes before. In fact, I had a bit of luck on it last time I played so I started there. I couldn’t believe it when I won $29,305!” said the winner from the undisclosed tropical resort where he and his wife have gone to start enjoying their good fortune. “I never have the kind of luck! My wife told me I should quit while I was ahead but I thought, what the heck, I think I’ll just try one more game before I log off. So I played Count Spectacular for a bit.”

It was not long before Armin B. had racked up $9,980 in winnings on Count Spectacular. He went on to win $10,020 playing Goblin’s Treasure and then his unbelievable good luck continued when he won $25,593.77 playing Mystic Dragon. After winning more than $45,000, he called it a night. Next day, still in shock over his run of luck the night before, he decided to take a few spins on the Texan Tycoon slot machine and started winning right away. That day he also played Pay Dirt. He added another $21,394.50 to his winnings playing Texan Tycoon and a staggering $43,665 on Pay Dirt for a grand two-day total of $139,957.77

“We often see players have winning streaks,” said casino manager Oliver Smith. “Sometimes Lady Luck just smiles on you! However, this really is an incredible run of luck. He won a lot of money and it sounds like he had a lot of fun in the process. We couldn’t be happier for him!” is home to the biggest progressive jackpots available online to US players. At over $1.6 million, the Jackpot PiƱatas jackpot is the largest jackpot available, but two other jackpots have also reached seven-figures. The Aztec’s Millions jackpot and the jackpot tied to both the Mid-Life Crisis and Shopping Spree slots are all well over $1 million.
