The Betting Veteran has been around for a long time. He saw the first bookmakers opening up way back when. He saw the newest bookmakers opening up just last week. He was there at the advent of the internet, and he knew that it was going to revolutionise the world. He also knew that it was going to revolutionise his world when betting and the internet mixed. The Betting Veteran was there for the start, which is why he is the person most qualified to talk about Intertops. There are a lot of people who can claim things in the world of betting, but Intertops have one thing that no one else can claim: they were the very first online sportsbook. Back in 1996, when going on the internet meant that your phone line freaked out, they set up their online sportsbook. That they have been going for so long means that they have to be doing something right. The Betting Veteran is going to show you whether they are that good or if it was just pure luck.
What bonuses do Intertops offer?
Intertops have a number of welcome bonuses on offer to players, but only one can be chosen as they are applied to the first deposit you make. The first one is a very simple $20 free bet when you deposit $20 yourself. It has a 16 times wagering requirement on it, so you will need to wager $640 before you can withdraw any winnings from it. The second welcome bonus on offer is a 200% matched bet up to a value of $50. So if you deposit $25, you will receive $50 as a bonus wager. This has a wagering requirement of eight times your deposit and bonus. So if you receive the full $50, you will have an account credit of $75. From there, you will need to wager $600 before you can make a withdrawal. The third welcome bonus is a 100% matched bet up to the value of $100. So if you deposit $100, you will receive a $100 bonus on top of that. The wagering requirement for this is six times the deposit and the bonus. So if you receive the full $100, it gives you an account credit of $200. You will need to place wagers up to the value of $1,200 before you can make a withdrawal. The final welcome bonus is a 50% matched bet up to the value of $200. This means that to get the full amount, you will have to make a deposit of $400. The wagering requirement for this is four times. So if you get the full bonus of $400, you will have a total account credit of $600. In order to make a withdrawal, you will need to place wagers of $2,400.
What sports are available to bet on?
Intertops have a modest amount of sports on offer to players. While it is not the worst number on the market, it is not the best either. They offer the most popular sports such as football and tennis, but their selection of niche sports could do with some improvement.
- In total, Intertops have 18 sports available
- They have over 20 different wagering markets though, if you include markets such as politics and entertainment
What features do Intertops offer?
In terms of features, Intertops do not offer the range that their European competitors have. They do offer live scores for games, which helps in-play bets. However, their stats are slightly limited, and they do not offer the opportunity to watch live streams of games. They do have an excellent payment system in place. They offer both bank transfers and e-wallet transactions, and both are carried out at a fast rate. In terms of complaints against Intertops, there are actually zero complaints related to slow payment transactions. For a site that has been running for so long, this is an incredible record.
Intertops mobile review
The Intertops mobile site is one of the simplest-looking sites on the whole of the internet. That is not a complaint: it is genuinely a thing of beauty. They have been around for a long time and have obviously used that time to find out just what is best for gamblers when it comes to a website. The mobile site opens up with a list of upcoming games. There are two tabs at the top of the list of games: upcoming and live. Changing between games that are about to start and games already running is as simple as clicking on the tab you would like. The site responds at a lightning pace and switches between the two tabs almost instantaneously.
If you would prefer to take a look through all of the different sports that are on offer, then Intertops have that covered for you. There is an A-Z button located in the top left that instantly opens a tab full of the sports that Intertops offer to players. This makes the navigation for Intertops very simple and easy to work. On the whole, the Intertops mobile site is a delight to use. It is fast, easy and looks great.
Betting Veteran pays a visit
The Betting Veteran was looking forward to having a look around Intertops. He was instantly pleased with what he saw on their site. It was polished, professional looking, had a fast response time, and was simple to navigate around. The Betting Veteran almost passed out, he was so impressed. He did manage to retain his composure to look at the other aspects of the site though. The features on offer were not as impressive and the sports on offer were average, but he did enjoy their tiered welcome rewards, which were put in place so that people on any kind of budget could get something for signing up.
Intertops have been around for a long time. There is a reason for this: they are, on the whole, good at what they do. While they do not offer live streaming on their sites, this is generally an issue with American sportsbooks. Licensing issues mean that live streaming is quite a complicated issue in America. This means that the lack of live streaming does not put them behind any other American online sportsbooks. What they do well is how they lay out their site. It is almost perfect. They add to this simple and responsive betting software that makes it as easy as it gets to place a wager. Gamblers will find the whole Intertops experience one that provides a stress-free time. Intertops are certainly one of the better American online sportsbooks around.
