    Intertops Review

    I tried Intertops 2 months ago. They gave me a free $100 in the mail with a max winnings of $1000 on this bonus. I turned it into $2500 that weekend. They cashed me out $1000 and kept the rest, but I knew that was the rules. Was hoping they would overlook it and pay me everything. I originally did a wire for $1,000. 7 days went by and i never got it, and someone called me from their accounting and said the US is blocking wires and she told me to do a Check. I got a check UPS to me next day and it cleared. Then I did a deposit a few weeks later and won $2000. I requested a check and they UPS one out and I got this one in 2 days. This was about 3 weeks ago.

    I am thinking of switching to this book from 5dimes. I don't like all the payout problems I am reading here along with my own. I asked about ezstreet and that one got slammed, so no way I am doing business with them. Has anyone else used intertops?

    I usually do cashouts $2-$4K, so want to hear anyone elses experiences. Thanks,

    have been with Intertops for well over 10 years - never had a problem

    not my favorite book due to limits not being high but play there regularly and like the book

    I just wish they would change their betting interface. It is the worst in the industry - but they are a stable out.

    Good to hear with payouts. Agreed, betting interface sucks and they don't post college overs until 10 am on Saturdays.

    What do you guys think of the lines? I havn't used them in years but thought they were too vanilla to be of any use.

    You might get a dozen decent numbers there a month if you look hard enough.

    Not much point in playing there.

    Agreed. Soccer totals and futures are the only areas of value. Maybe some tennis.

    As far as "usefulness", they are not my favorite book any more with Reduced Juice etc... But for stability, timeliness of cashouts, bonuses, and even their poker interface with Cake... very solid... been with them since 1998 roughly... when they took 10% off for winning (Austrian tax)...

    I have used Intertops regularly for the last four or five years. Payouts were always very quick, but over the last two months began to have problems with payouts. Had problems with a wire transfer that required them to redeposit back into the account the requested funds after waiting for several weeks. Now, I'm still waiting on a check payout that should have been received based upon their payout guidelines.

    Russinet, I requested a UPS check Tuesday, and the money was out of my account same day...I usually get in 2-3 days, depending on which state the package comes from. So I am expecting it today or tomorrow at latest, but now you have me concerned. What day did the $$ leave your account that you are waiting?

    People actually use them? lol

    Interface is truly great. Only works with Internet Explorer (I have to fire up IE every time I want to use them, imagine that in 2011), and their site never loads at first try, I have to press refresh to make it load

    Ugliest and crappiest site EVER, well together with the greek maybe (but greek just looks crappy, navigation is actually pretty decent).

    Probably about the only safest book left for US players. Very deposit friendly book, with variety of payout options.

    Butt ugly looking betting interface, can never get use to itThey probably have the least betting variety options of any books I've played at. You can't parlay 2nd halves with anything but that same game, so you can't do any Par 3's with half time lines. Their grading is also kinda of slow, and lines closes 5 minutes before game times, so last minute sh1t.

    I haven't played with Intertops for a long time... just checked again and it works now with Firefox, too. In the past, it wouldn't let me log in when using Firefox, I remember installing Internet Explorer just because of that.

    To add, historically I have always been paid timely and have nearly 5M bonus credits with them. Was hoping this wasn't the beginning of payout problems...

    Is it true that for your 1st withdrawal a ID and proof of Address must be sent to them? (Even if not depositing via c.c?)

    I recently tried to withdraw some money from Intertops. I'd made several previous attempts and was always told I had not met rollover requirements. After the last but one withdrawal request I queried exactly how much more I needed to wager to meet rollover and then over the course of the next two weeks placed the necessary wagers.

    Before the latest withdrawal request I again made contact via online chat to confirm that I'd now met the rollover requirements and was told I had and there was no reason my withdrawal request wouldn't be processed. I calculated that I had placed wagers at least $200 in excess of the rollover requirement I'd been previously advised.

    After waiting around 5 days and no money I made contact via online Chat and then I was subsequently advised vai email I still hadn't met rollover requirements. Apparently I was still $200 short. The goalposts were moved yet again.

    Notwithstanding I didn't agree with this new calculation, I thought the quickest way to resolve was to just bet through the money and then make a new withdrawal request.

    Now to my complete shock and horror I've had bet restrictions placed on my account and I can only wager up to a maximum of $5. This is a complete joke because previous wagers were up to $1000.

    Please, be very careful with Intertops. The goalposts keep moving and they appear to make up their own rules to suit themselves. Clearly, they are going to make it difficult for anyone who wins money to get it out, particularly if you receive a small deposit bonus too.

    This Sporstbook has turned into a complete joke and I'd suggest SBR members exercise extreme caution in their future dealings with Intertops.

    Just do it the hard. Place 40 $5 Bets on College basketball and Football on Saturday, you should at least be able to get half of it right.

    I used intertops a few months ago to try it out. They sent me a wire in 3 days after I requested it and I had No problems getting paid, but I don't take bonuses like the guy above was saying. I don't like their website very much or their software, and their soccer totals are always 2.5 which is not really that much fun, because they juice them to hell instead of raising them to 3 with regular juice. The most important thing to me though is that I can trust them to pay me, and they are reliable when you want to take your money out.

    They didn't put up totals, moneylines or first half lines for today's bowl games till today and still don't have them for the other games except totals on BCS games.
