|Intertops.com is not letting the current lockout in the USís NHL stop activity on their site in this area. The site which is well known for presenting some of the more unusual betting options available on the internet, are launching a virtual NHL season via their site. Linking it with the North American Lottery, this new virtual innovation is intended to give frustrated fans an alternative to keep them occupied for the duration of the lockout.|
The action will start today, and each NHL team will be assigned a ball in one of the Lotteryís draws, in the order of the draw. The program will emulate the traditional season, with fixtures and odds being posted two days before each virtual game. Also punters will be able to bet on either their favourite team, the opponent, a tie option, and also over and under total goals.
Itís an inventive solution to the lack of action happening in the real league, and Intertops is hoping that disappointed fans will find some solace in their virtual alternative. Chief Operating Officer Michael Maerz explained: 'We are pleased to offer NHL fans an alternative way to wager on their favorite team. We know our customers will be feeling the winter blues with no NHL this season, but at Intertops.com it's virtually no problem, we can still provide some great NHL action. Log on to Intertops.com to find out more details of how we unlocked the door to NHL wagering this season.'
