Originally founded in 1983, Intertops has been an online sportsbook since 1996. If quick banking and guaranteed cashouts and security are a priority, Intertops should be your first choice. US and non-US bettors are accepted at Intertops.
Intertops was first established back in 1996 and primarily served as one of the first sportsbooks on the web. Since then, the site and company have really expanded and have come to be one of the most recognizable brands in the sportsbook and casino industries. When you log on to Intertops, the first thing you are greeted with is the sportsbook, which makes sense seeing as this is their biggest money-maker. Across the top of the homepage you will find a tab for the casino as well as the poker sections of the site.
The look of the site is as standard as you will find from an sportsbook and online casino. The red and black theme is all too familiar, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. The site is laid out in an easy to understand way and does not do much in the way of confusing players by packing a bunch of ads and promos everywhere you look.
As for what players think about the site, the 20+ years of existence more or less speaks for itself. There are very few sites who have been in business as long as Intertops has, and that is a testament to their customer service, user-friendliness, and a host of other factors. With more than 2 decades under their belt there are undoubtedly going to be a few people who have submitted sub-standard reviews, but all in all most have nothing but good things to say about almost every aspect of the site.
Intertops keeps things somewhat simple when it comes to the software utilized as only two brands are available. Casino games are provided by WGS Technology and RTG, or Real Time Gaming, respectively. Both of the aforementioned software providers are heavy-hitters in the online casino world. Rest-assured that you will only be playing the most up to date games with some of the best graphics and features you will find.
Put simply, the game selection at Intertops is complete as can be. In total, there are more than 300 games on offer across a variety of casino game types. Games are available via download or through instant play within your web browser. It must be noted that if you choose to play flash games, not every single game is going to be available. Only the software download will leave you with the complete game selection at your fingertips.
As you have probably come to expect at this point, slots dominate the casino games offering. There are more than 13 pages of slot titles. Most are video slots, but there are also a few reeled games on offer as well. Something we didn’t necessarily enjoy about the slots page is that the games on offer seem to be in no specific order. This makes specific titles difficult to find.
Blackjack is a casino category all its own on Intertops and features 7 different versions of the game. Naturally, classic blackjack is available, but so too are varieties of the game you might have never heard of before.
The table games section only features 7 different games, including Pai Gow and Casino Hold’em. Other than that, the table games section is not necessarily worth writing home about. To the contrary, the video poker selection has more than 20 titles spanning across both well-known and no so well-known game types. The roulette tab features both American and European versions of the game while the specialty tab features Keno and a few titles we have never even seen before.
An added bonus as far as the casino games are concerned is the fact that they are able to be played on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. As is the case with flash play on a desktop or laptop computer, however, not every game is available to be played on mobile devices.
The Intertops sportsbook is perhaps the most attractive aspect of the Intertops brand. Not only do they feature a wide variety of sports and leagues from around the world upon which you can wager, the user interface for the sports betting platform is easy to use and functions well.
It is made plainly clear that the top sports Intertops offers betting for are sports such as football, hockey, and basketball, all of which sees betting dominated by the top US-based leagues. The NFL is arguably the singlemost wagered-upon league on the site and features a wide range of betting markets as well as halftime and live betting as well. In fact, for most of the higher profile matches/games/events featured on Intertops there will be some version of live betting available.
Even though betting on US sports leagues seems to be the most popular type of betting at Intertops, they do well to not neglect other sports and leagues too. Soccer, for example, sees many dozens of betting lines listed each and every day. All of the most popular leagues from across Europe, Asia, and Africa are able to be wagered-upon. So too are some of the more obscure leagues in places like Poland and Russia.
You can even bet on politics on Intertops, and this does well to drive home the point that this site truly offers a complete sports betting experience. So complete that it features propositions on non-sporting items too.
Poker was another one of the first offerings of Intertops, so it should come as no surprise that it is still drawing in players today. As far as site traffic is concerned, you will be happy to know that there is never a shortage of online poker action. What is worth mentioning, however, is the fact that most players tend to stick to low and micro stake levels. Seeing a large amount of people at $1/$2 tables and higher is something that is reserved for the weekends and high-traffic time periods during the week.
The most popular game type is Hold’em, but that isn’t the only type of poker available. In addition to Hold’em, you will find Omaha, 7-Card Stud, as well as the hi-lo versions of both. If you are a Windows user, poker can be played within your web browser or via the downloadable poker client. For Mac users, poker play is only available within your web browser.
The playing interface is simple to understand and to use. As for anonymous play, that does not exist. Your username will be displayed above your “real” player. There are no fancy bells and whistles at Intertops, but that, for us, is not a bad thing in any way.
There are a number of promotions and bonuses available to both new and returning players at Intertops. For new players looking to take advantage of an initial deposit, the bonus given out will depend on what you plan on doing at Intertops. What we mean by this is that there are bonuses for sportsbook users, casino players, and poker players. Most people identify as one or two of the three, but for those who are using Intertops to take advantage of all three, it is in your best interest to pick the bonus corresponding to the aspect of Intertops you plan on using most.
For casino players, the sign-up bonus is quite simple. Intertops will match 100% any first deposit up to $100. This means that if you create an account and deposit $50, you will see that $50 matched and have $100 with which to begin playing casino games.
For sportsbook users, the sign-up bonus works as a matching bonus with a match of 200%, 100%, and 50% available. You choose the bonus that suits you best. The 200% bonus will see the maximum bonus monies capped at $50, the 100% bonus at $100, and the 50% bonus at $200.
For poker players, there is an initial 200% matching bonus available that caps the bonus monies at $1,000. This means an initial deposit of $100 will be doubled and you will then have $300 with which to begin playing poker games. In addition to this, first-time poker players will also be able to take advantage of a $1,000 depositor freeroll.
Having been in business more than 20 years, it makes a lot of sense that Intertops offers its players a variety of different banking options. For depositing, the following methods are available for you to take advantage of: credit/debit cards, bank wire, EcoPayz, Neteller, PaySafeCard, Ukash, Skrill, Sofortuberwaisung, and Money Global.
For all withdrawals, the following methods are available: credit/debit cards, bank wire, EcoPayz, Neteller, PaySafeCard, Ukash, Skrill, EcoCard, check, and Money Global
All things told, there are very few complaints we have for Intertops. The site has been operating continuously for more than 20 years and has garnered a user base that numbers in the tens of thousands. What’s more, with poker, casino, and sports betting options, Intertops really offers the complete betting experience. With mobile play, live betting, and customer service that is available at just about any time of day or night, Intertops does well to prove that they are a forward-thinking brand that is with, if not ahead of, the modern day level of expectation that most gamblers have.
