March Madness deposit bonus, $25,000 bracket contest, $5,000 cash prize-draws and a chance to win a trip to next year’s Big Dance add to hoops excitement!

March 12, 2012 (St Johns, Antigua) – As a third of all Americans prepare to watch the March Madness college basketball tournament – and a quarter of them plan their bets – Intertops Sportsbook is offering cash bonuses, a $25K brackets contest and a chance to win a trip to next year’s Big Dance. There will be draws for $5000 in cash prizes and every bet is a chance to win a trip to next year’s event.

A recent study* conducted by Harris Interactive showed that not only is college basketball gripping America, those who bet on March Madness games plan to bet more money than they wagered in years past. “March Madness is always a busy time for us,” said the Sportsbook Manager at Intertops. “If betting on college basketball this past month is any indication we’re going to be seeing a lot of action over the next few weeks, that’s for sure!”

The study also revealed that 38% would watch games at work and another 24% said they’d take time off to watch them at home. Forty-five percent said they have spent time researching March Madness matchups while at work. “There must be quiet a slump in American productivity every March!”

Until March 16th, Intertops Sportsbook is giving a 20% March Madness deposit bonus for up to $100 free cash. Customers wagering a combined stake of at least $1,000 on the games of the first, second and/or third round will be entered in a random draw for 3x $1000 which will take place on Monday, March 19th. A combined stake of at least $1,000 on the games of the Sweet 16 and Elite 8 qualifies for another random draw for 2x $1,000 on March 26th. In its 2012 March Madness Bracket Contest Intertops will pay $25,000 for 63 correct selections. If no player manages to complete a ‘perfect bracket’, the jackpot will be shared equally amongst the top 25 players in the contest.

In addition, every dollar wagered on March Madness games is one chance to win a deluxe travel package to next year’s March Madness finals. There are many reasons that Intertops Sportsbook, the first to ever to take an online sports bet, is still one of the most popular and trusted sportsbooks around the world with its top odds on virtually every sport and generous promotional offers. It continues to earn its reputation for courteous and efficient customer service and hassle-free deposits and withdrawals every day.
