Our sincere thoughts about Intertops
You are here because you want to know more about betting and to see our reviews regarding the best platforms where you can place bets fast, safe and easy. The crew at Bettingviews commend up with another interesting opinion and analysis regarding one of the most legendary betting platform that exist.
Of course, we are talking about Intertops! For those who don’t know who Intertops are, in the following review i will analyse the website and report to you our experience with it. But let’s get back to the main subject and start with a quick history lesson: who are Intertops? Intertops is one, if not the oldest, online gambling platform. The website first went online in 1996, but the company was founded way back in the year 1983. In the early days people were skeptical about the online betting scene, but as times passed it gained more and more traction. Intertops was here to stay, management to increase its reach as time passed by. In the year 2000, Intertops was the first sportsbooking page to launch a website developed especially for mobile users. This was a huge deal and statement in that period, even in our days some websites don’t have a mobile optimized version.
For a period of time you could not create an account on the website so easily. This is because Intertops had a very strict policy in terms of registrations. The only way you “get inside” was through an invite from an existing American user. But if you were an american who tried to sign up, you just simply couldn’t. Since then this policy changed and starting from 2015 the registrations are opened again. As of now the platform is available in a grand majority of countries, in multiple languages and has a wide variety of betting options ranging from sports to casino and poker. In our current times the company is based in Antigua and Barbuda and managed by International Gaming & Entertainment Ltd. Know that you know more about the rise of Intertops, let’s start our analysis! Shall we?!
Let’s take a look at the main categories of the website and talk a bit about them.
Main Intertops website categories:
- Sports (with Live Betting)
The website started with sportsbooking and now they evolved it to be one of the best developed sports section that exists today in a gambling platform. What is nice and impressed us was the fact that Intertops provides its users with the old interface or the new one, it depends which one you like the most. If you are and old user i guess you are more inclined towards the old look of the website.
You can imagine that the updated interface will work the best in the modern browsers, but if you got an old computer that is not so powerful, you better stick with the old platform. Although the interfaces are different, the betting experience is more or less the same. You have a wide variety of sports you can choose from, some of them are: Football (Soccer on the website), Basketball, Golf, Baseball, Boxing & UFC, Icy Hockey and some special ones like Financials. When you select the match odds they will appear on the right side of the screen in the Betting Slip, with the total potential win. Also in the Slip you can configure parlay bets, which is standard on must sportsbooking websites, but they appear with a different name.
If you are a skilled player and pre-match bets don’t impress or challenge you that much, you can try Live Sports Betting. It will show you a Live Matches widget in the right side of the screen, when you are in the Sports section and by clicking it you see all the ongoing matches. In the left it’s a very nicely placed calendar with the matches and in the center are displayed in real time the ongoing competitions. Betting is as described above, so as the Betting Slip. Also the way odds are displayed can be changed with a simple click (the top of the betting page).
At first Intertops didn’t feature a Poker segment, but times changed and a few years back they introduced it. To access the Poker area of the website you need to download the Intertops proprietary Poker Client. After the client is downloaded and installed you can login with the account. As of now the client is available just for Microsoft Windows, it doesn’t work in Mac and Linux (this could change in the near future). Here you can enroll in a number of tournaments with buy in options for every budget. Also you can filter the games by the spending limit or the type. As a side note, from the poker app interface you have access to the Casino and Sportsbook too.
As the Sports section, the Casino is available in the old format or the new one. Again the functionality is the same, but the updated interface is based on the latest web standards. In the Casino section you can choose from a wide variety of game types. Some of them are: Slots, Blackjack, Table games, Video Poker. Also you can see on the front page the new games that they introduced (from the website). To access the games from Intertops Casino section you need to have an Adobe Flash Player compatible browser or you could directly download the client into your computer. If you are on a Mac or Linux computer don’t struggle to download the games, they will not work, play in your browser instead. The games load super fast and have a great user experience. We didn’t experienced any weird behavior in our few hours of testing. Each game has a detailed description and has all the betting prices listed, which we found it very helpful. Also you can play the games from your Android, Windows or iOS mobile device (there is dedicated website for mobile).
The registration windows is standard. In this case we are looking at a sectioned registration form, we most say is not our favorite type of form, but is pretty logically laid out. First you must select the country you are from then input all the other required information so you could start playing around. Gambling is a very serious activity! That’s why only people over the age of 18 are allowed to register an account. Before you can start placing any bets you must enter a payment method.
That led us to the next point in our review. Talking about the supported payment methods available on Intertops.com. Being one of the oldest site in the games, you would expect the selection of payment method to be extremely vast, but you may be surprised. We are not saying that the deposit or withdraw methods are limited by any means, but they are not as vast as we saw on other betting platforms. Intertops supports Visa, MasterCard, American Express credit or debit cards or direct wire transfer. Payment services like Neteller, Skrill, Sofort, ecoPayz, PaySafe and Money Global ar also supported. The grand majority of the payment methods do not appear to have hidden costs, at least for depositing in the account. But you must take in consideration that the number of methods available for withdrawing is a tiny bit more restrictive.
When it comes to privacy the company doesn’t play around. They have a very strict conduct in terms of client privacy and tracking. The website is secure with SSL and all the website traffic in encrypted to ensure maximum confidentiality and data safety. Intertops makes public the fact that they don’t sell or trade user data. That’s a statement that some gambling sites fail to make clear. Cookies are used but just for marketing purposes, no personal information is stored in those type of files. Also the company has a very strong anti-spam policy. Providing the user just with information that they’ve requested, nothing more.
A big thumb up here! Many of you can agree that spam it’s just incredibly annoying! Some sportsbooking websites bombard you with emails after you just created your account and the grand majority of the emails are not interesting at all. We are really pleased to see Intertops having this user-centered approach.
Is Intertops still keeping up with the competition?
To be present and active in the gambling community is harder than ever. As a website with reputation, Intertops does a great job optimizing and delivering the best user experience for its customers around the world.
Maybe the odds are not that good compared to the competition, but the professionalism and the longevity of the brand teaches us that money is for nothing if you don’t know how to respect the consumer and constantly evolve the platform.
In our opinion Intertops is one of the few success stories in the online betting industry. To sustain and grow, even in this day, a business that started two decades ago is a proven symbol of exemplar entrepreneurship and out of the box thinking. What just started in 96 as a small sports betting website, now it’s a mature multi-level platform that is well known around the Globe. If you want to try out a new gambling platform that has a mature and polished image, you should sign in right now for an Intertops Account.
