With Super Bowl XL just around the corner, the online casino is offering bettors more ways of making the experience of watching the game even more enjoyable.
Over the years, the name John Madden has become synonymous with American football. The legendary coach who led the Oakland Raiders to a Super Bowl title appears on TV each every week during the regular season and the playoffs as a commentator.

Other than betting on the game, Pinnacle Sports online casino is now offering players the opportunity to wager money on what would be the first thing to come out of Madden's mouth during Sunday night's broadcast. This is the first time in the history of online gambling that this sort of wager is offered.
