NBX Fantasy Sportsbook Provides Sports Bettors With Safe Alternative to Offshore Sports Books

SARATOGA, CA--(Collegiate Presswire - September 13, 2006) - With the U.S. Federal Government cracking down on offshore sports books, including the recent arrests of Sportingbet PLC chairman Peter Dicks and former CEO of BetOnSports David Carruthers, NBX Inc. (www.nbx.com), an online fantasy sports company, has created a safe alternative with the first authentic, totally free online Fantasy Sportsbook™.

"With the high profile actions of the U.S. Justice Department and legislation proposed by the House of Representatives to curb gambling over the Internet, U.S. consumers are understandably confused about what they can and cannot do online," said Frank Catania, President and Principal of Catania Consulting Group. "Fantasy sports is legal, and current proposed legislation does not prohibit participation by U.S. players in fantasy sports."

The NBX Fantasy Sportsbook allows sports fans to compete with their friends and "wager" on games using points not cash. It is completely free to sign up and play. NBX also owns and runs the world's only World Sports Betting Championships™, a series of fantasy tournaments built around major sporting events with $10,000 grand prizes.

NBX recently received high recognition from the Fantasy Sports Trade Association, which named NBX.com a finalist for three fantasy sports awards, including best new web site, most innovative sports offering and best contest.

"As the fantasy sports industry grows, it's great to see unique, innovative offerings from companies like NBX," says Fantasy Sports Trade Association President and SportsBuff.com Founder Jeff Thomas. "Their creative approach to offering free sports entertainment to fantasy fans was recognized by our members with three finalist nominations for the 2006 FSTA Industry Recognition Awards. They're a great addition to our industry and I'm sure we'll see additional creative offerings from them in the future."
