Intertops Sports Book Review

Intertops was established in 1998. They are based out of Antigua and from day one have had the motto of offering reliable betting that many seem as ‘old-fashioned’ – which is a good thing. Intertops operates in an efficient manner and focuses on the wagering and this has led to the site being at the top of most players coveted books. Most sports bettors will be a member at multiple sites to get the best odds and promotions, and a majority of players have added Intertops to that list based on customer reviews, reputation and any problems.

Most of the complaints about Intertops come from what they do NOT do, compared to scams or proactively causing their players issues. To be more specific, the odds that Intertops offers doesn’t really compare with a lot of other sports books. The welcome bonus is smaller than other sites and they do NOT seem to offer player-to-player transfers.

The reasoning behind Intertops seemingly NOT catering to their players actually stems from the opposite, in my opinion. They have built a 22+ year reputation of offering dependable wagering with little to no slow pays on record. Newer books need to offer player-friendly odds and larger maximum bets as a way to attract new customers. Intertops has the track record of reliability that speaks for itself and offers gamblers a safe place to make their bets.

As of 2015 the site opened their doors back up to all American players however.

The bonus details that Intertops offers are far from overwhelming. In fact the maximum bonus that a new member can claim is $200. The good thing could be that at least you have a choice of which bonus you want to invoke – either a 200% match up to $50, a 100% match up to $100, or a 50% match up to $200. Bonuses need to be rolled over either 8X, 6X, or 4X to claim.

There is however a $20 free bet for new customers and like most other sports books, Intertops does offer seasonal promotions. In addition, referral bonuses are also in play and it never hurts to sign up for the newsletter offered from the site to take advantage of other weekend freebies.

Deposit methods are very detailed for such a long-running site. Some of these payment methods do incur a fee, however. Wire transfers and checks knock an extra $50 off your deposit and credit and debit cards usually cost $20. The good thing is that most other online payment options that Intertops accepts do NOT require any fee for deposits.

The site similarly offers a multitude of withdraw options. However, one of the major drawbacks of Intertops is their withdraw limits. $150 is the minimum on most withdraw options but the maximum is $2,500 for nearly every method besides credit card ($5,000). Some high rollers are accustomed to receiving $10,000 checks from their book so these limits from Intertops can be frustrating. Thus, Intertops is for the recreational sports bettor.

One way to combat those lower withdraw options is the fact that Intertops has consistently built a reputation as one of the fastest paying books on the Internet.

Like I said, Intertops is the ideal book for a recreational sports bettor. They offer stability which is very attractive when looking into a new place to start wagering – arguably the most important trait. Bet minimums are only $1 which is also appealing to those learning the ropes of sports betting or who just want some kind of action on their favorite game. Betting limits are capped for professional bettors which deters many hardcore sports bettors from Intertops even though they pay fast and have been in business for two+ decades.

Otherwise, the site offers most major sports available for wagering including an online casino. One thing to note is that the site is PC-only and they have yet to release a mobile version of their betting interface – an ode to old fashioned.

As I said, Intertops is one of the few sports books that does accept US players and has over 22 years of a proven track record of performance. That is more than enough for most people to consider it a great place to make a bet.
