Saratoga, CA (PRWEB) December 6, 2006
NBX Inc. and The National League of Poker (http://www.nlop.com -- a division of Power Play Development Corp. - PWPY.pk) announced today that they have joined forces to offer online poker players and sports bettors a chance to win thousands of dollars without risking a penny.
The Perfect Picks contest is a weekly contest based on NFL games, with a $5,000 cash prize to anyone who picks all of the weekly winners against the official spread at the time players make their picks. Contestants that pick 11 or more games correctly gain entry into a poker tournament with a $3,000 prize pool held at the http://www.nlop.com online poker site.
"There is a great deal of symmetry between what NBX and NLOP are doing and it makes our partnership as natural a fit as a sports book and a poker room," said Chris Taylor, Executive Vice President of Marketing for NBX. "We are both committed to providing competitive, risk-free entertainment to our players. A majority of poker players love sports and sports fans enjoy playing poker. Through this partnership, players will now be able to combine their sports knowledge and their poker skills with a chance to win thousands of dollars."
"Many US-based online poker players and sports bettors have been abandoned by offshore gaming sties as a result of recent legislation" explained Michael Clebnik, COO of Power Play Development. "NLOP and NBX offer the same excitement, the same chance to win prizes but within a legal framework. Contestants at NLOP and NBX never risk their own money."
Players can enter the risk-free contest by creating a free account at http://www.nbx.com and http://www.nlop.com. There is a $5,000 prize available each week during the NFL regular season if a player selects all games correctly. If multiple players get all the games right they will share the prize equally. In addition, 11 correct selections earn the contestant entry into a $3,000 Free Roll held at the National League of Poker. For complete rules, contestants should visit nbx.com or nlop.com.
