Intertops Sportsbook Review
Intertops sportsbook is one of the oldest bookmakers in existence today, established in 1983 it had a strong offline presence before hitting the internet in 1996, and credit themselves as being the first company ever to take an online sports bet. It didn’t take them long to expand, and by the end of 1998, they had added both an online casino and poker room.
Historically, Intertops has been very reliable at making payouts, and no company would have stayed in business for this long had there been any major issues. They offer over 4,000 in daily wagers to customers in over 180 countries, and in the last 3 years they have paid out over $500 million in winnings to their huge customer base.
The company is licensed in Barbuda, Antigua as well as the Mohawk Territory of Kahnawake, located in Quebec, Canada.
The Intertops website is very slick and professional. The landing page is a nice mix of grey and red, and there’s lots happening to catch your eye. The first thing you’ll notice is the sign up offers for their Sportsbook, Casino, and Poker Room as they try to drive you there before you go anywhere else.
Their sportsbook page is a little dated, but they have a new Beta version which is a lot more modern and as good as anything you’ll see. You can switch between Decimal, Fraction or American style odds, depending on your preference.
- American Odds Money Line – e.g. Dodgers -130 (favorite) and Yankees +120 (underdog) , where a $100 wager on the favorite returns $77 profit and a $100 wager on the underdog returns a $120 profit.
- European Odds Decimal wagers – e.g. Dodgers 1.77 and Yankees 2.20, where a $100 wager on the favorite returns $77 profit and a $100 wager on the underdog returns a $120 profit.
- British Odds Fractional format – e.g. Dodgers 77/100 and Yankees 6/5, where a wager of $100 will return the same profit as the previous 2 examples.
Intertops previously hosted a lot of languages on their site, but the only options available now are English and Deutsch.

Getting money from the site seems to be a little trickier as Intertops only process payouts Monday-Friday, and they will only begin to process your payment 48 hours after the request has been received. When the initial phases are taken care of, they also quote 10-15 business days for Bank Wire Transfer, 5 business days for check and 48+ hours for other options. That is presuming that you have sent them all of the relevant documents that they requirement beforehand, so get that taken care of first. What that means, in a nutshell, is, if you get a big win on Friday night and want to withdraw it, don’t be expecting it to hit your pocket for quite a while!
You’ll also have to pay a pretty hefty price for withdrawals. You’ll get hit with a $50 bill for check and Bankwire transfer, and pay $9 for a CardPay withdrawal.
