PANAMA CITY, Panama, Jan. 27, 2012 /CNW/ - On Wednesday, rapper and
hip-hop mogul Birdman thought he made an offer everyone would refuse.
Just two days later, online sportsbook giant BetOnline.com has
Birdman, who has an estimated worth of over $100 million according to
Forbes magazine, boasted on Twitter that he was going to bet $5 million
dollars on Tom Brady and the New England Patriots because his nephew,
BenJarvus Green-Ellis, is the team's starting running back. Just one
tweet and less than 160 characters later, the internet was in a buzz.
Birdman has had plenty of big-time action before winning $1 million at
the Super Bowl last year with the Green Bay Packers but losing an
estimated $3 million when the Miami Heat fell short in the NBA finals.
After his Wednesday tweet, rapper 50 Cent was quick to respond via
Twitter, suggesting that he'd take up to $1 million of the bet while
backing the New York Giants. That's just child's play; BetOnline
released a response of their own publicly stating that they are
"prepared to take the $5 million dollar wager effective immediately!"
BetOnline.com is one of the few online sportsbooks to be legally
licensed and regulated in the banking capital of Panama City, Panama.
With a reputation for taking, and paying off winners of, very large
wagers the acceptance of the $5 million dollar wager should not be a
surprise to Birdman.
"If Birdman is prepared to put his money where his mouth is, we are
prepared to accept his $5 million wager on either the point spread or
the money line of Super Bowl XLVI", stated Dave Mason of BetOnline.com.
Don't be surprised if Birdman obliges; he's literally put his money
where his mouth is in the past, spending and estimated $500,000 on a
set of white gold-plated, diamond encrusted teeth.
If Birdman chooses to bet on the Patriots point spread at -3.5 (-110),
he will lay $5 million to win $4,545,454.
If Birdman chooses to bet on the Patriots straight up on the money line
at -160, he will lay $5 million to win $3,125,000.
In either case, Birdman will be expected to Post-Up his money with
BetOnline.com first, in accordance to gaming laws in Panama City,
Panama. Post-up can be completed with bank wire, person-to-person
money transfer, cashier's check, among other methods.
"Birdman simply needs to go to www.BetOnline.com and register online. Then, he can email me directly at David@BetOnline.com, and I will provide him wire instructions in order to get his $5
million in post-up funds sent in a timely manner so we can proceed with
the bet. Once Birdman's bet is in, we will release a snapshot of the
bet in his BetOnline.com account, and Birdman will finally have proof
that he is the sports bettor who he boasts of being," stated Mr. Mason.
So Birdman, it's your move…
