The following review is about one of oldest bookmakers on the market. It is Intertops, which was established in 1983 and was one of first bookies that went on-line. That translates into 22 years of experience in online bookmaking.
That is a huge tradition and experience, and their slogan Trust the First fully makes sense. The bookmaker is proud on speed with which it pays winnings and full protection of its players’ privacy.
Intertops offer more than 4000 bets daily from all over the world. It has customers from over 180 countries. Besides sports betting it offers other gambling games associated with this type of business. In next couple of lines we will go through all those things that might interest players before considering opening an account with this traditionally good bookie.
Intertops – Welcome Bonus
As it can be expected from such experienced company, new players enjoy in very good welcome bonus of 50% up to €200. It is a generous offer these days and conditions for withdrawal of bonus and winnings are very realistic.
However, that is not all. Intertops offers choice and players can choose their own welcome bonus and by that conditions for withdrawal. Besides this one, players can choose between bonuses of 200% up to €50 and 100% up to €100.
Intertops offer to players who come from the American market, including Canada, an incredible welcome bonus of 100% up to $1000.
The most popular welcome bonus is 50% up to €200, but more important than its amount is that conditions for withdrawal are minimal and very realistic.
The first of them is that a player is a new user and to make deposit after the registration. To earn the bonus it is necessary to use code ROOKIE50 and bonus needs to be turned over just four times with minimal odds of 1.50.
All those who have experience with online bookmakers and their bonuses know this is one of most minimalistic requirements that a bookie imposed before allowing bonus withdrawal.
Conditions for withdrawing three other bonuses are:
* 200% up to €50 – turn over 8x, minimal odds 1.50, bet limit €50, code: ROOKIE200
* 100% up to €100 – turn over 6x, minimal odds 1.50, bet limit €100, code: ROOKIE100
* 100% up to $1000 – (American market) turn over 8x, minimal odds of 1.50, bet limit $1000, code: ROOKIEBTC
Intertops – Offer
Given that Intertops is one of rare bookmakers with license to operate in North America it attracted in previous years large number of followers right from this area, which in why it has wide choice of bets for American sports. Accordingly, all those who like to bet on NBA, NHL, MLB and NFL games will find at Intertops all what they need for ultimate experience.
Regarding presence of sports preferred by Europeans choice of football bets has been significantly improved with orientation on German speaking areas but some lower leagues are still missing as well as first leagues of so called “exotic countries” but available options and number of selections will satisfy needs of most punters.
What we have said previously about Intertops is valid for its odds too. The bookmaker probably doesn’t offer the best odds for football matches but we need to make it clear that odds for this sports are considered good if the profit margin is somewhere between 5% and 6%. We have to add that we have noticed much better odds for special options than on match outcome. That is especially true for over/under and Asian handicap bets
Still, situation with American sports is quite different. In our example that you can see on the photo Intertops had one of better odds, in fact it was one of Top 5. This confirms once again that the bookmaker has significant clientele base in North America and if you want to bet on American sports than Intertops is the right place for you.
Live Betting and Live Streams
When Intertops entered the German market its offer of live bets has significantly improved. We have to say that is not on par with some of world’s most famous bookmakers that we have previously tested but the progress is evident. Still, we believe there is room for improvement in this segment and this is how the things will eventually develop.
Choice of sports for live betting is indeed very wide and is accompanied with basic statistic data and graphic display of events that could make betting easier.
Regarding other gambling games Intertops offers casino games that are divided, so to speak, on European and American ones. For example Roulette is not the same depending is it played by European or American rules. Choice of games is not overwhelming but everything that might be interesting is there.
Casino games and poker are accompanied with appropriate bonuses. We have mentioned the Welcome Bonus for casino, while one for poker is 200% up to $1000, + 100 free bets for Casino.
Besides these, at the moment there are around 10 different other promotions out of which some are time limited.
Registration process is fairly simple for new customers and consists of three basic steps in which players enter their personal information and contact details. The whole process is accompanied with well organised support so if players have dilemmas or unclear thing they can seek for help in several different ways.
Intertops had operated in English only for a long time and only recently it expanded its webpage to German language which significantly contributed to its expansion on European sports betting market. As it can be seen the bookmaker doesn’t support large number of languages but all those who don’t have at least minimal knowledge of one of two said languages shouldn’t bother themselves with online betting.
Deposit and Withdrawal
Intertops supports solid number of banking options but not PayPal. Most of other popular options are available and depending from which country players register they should choose the most suitable way of money transfer in light of possible surcharges.

As it can be guessed Intertops webpage displays the most common information with clearly outlined available bets. Players will immediately like simplicity and logical layout of the webpage and most will feel they had already been there.
Everything is clear which is why navigation and use of options are very simple. Choice of colours is also good and it doesn’t cause eyestrain after prolonged use. We need to mention the bet slip design as its display information in very visible way and stands out from the rest of webpage.
Mobile Webpage and App
We have no particular complains on webpage optimised for access by mobile devices and supports both platforms. The assessment is also valid for both available languages. The webpage is fast and has simply commands. Fans of casino games can download app directly from the Intertops site. Of course, the experience depends from chosen games and type of platform.
We need to mention that Intertops has promotion action for playing via mobile webpage under name Mobile Award, which gives chance to players to win $100 every week.
We can conclude our review saying that Intertops is recommendable bookmaker. It used to be oriented solely on North American market but after redesign and addition of new betting options it has become interesting for every European.
Intertops has several advantages like very good welcome bonus, long tradition and large choice of over/under and Asian handicap bets. Besides, Intertops has very interesting webpage that is very simple and logically arranged.
