Intertops is the world’s first and oldest online sportsbook. The gambling company formed in 1983, long before internet wagering became available. Intertops.com launched in 1996 as the first online sportsbook in the world.
They are base out of Antigua and Barbuda. Licensed and regulated by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission. Intertops has more of an international clientele compared to other US-facing sportsbooks. Their site translates to German. In addition, they also offer support in several languages, including Italian and Polish.
For several years, Intertops was an invite-only sportsbook for Americans. Existing US-based players could invite players, but did NOT accept new sign-ups through their website. However, in February 2015, this changed. Intertops reopened sign-ups and are allowing players to create accounts from inside the United States. In addition to their online sportsbook, they offer an online casino and poker room.
A sportsbook that has been around this long and has a track record like Intertops is a rare find. They have operated an online sportsbook for 20 years and have been in business since the early 1980s.
Intertops has NOT made many headlines in their long history and that is a good thing. They have paid players in a timely fashion. In fact, the sportsbook has never had a player complain over a single slow-pay or no-pay in their long history.
InterTops offers the gambler many ways to make a deposit as well as a withdrawal.
They offer loads of promotions around the year and have an excellent support staff. The security and peace of mind of knowing that you will get paid are the sportsbook’s primary attribute, in my opinion. There might not be a safer bet online for US-based bettors than Intertops.
