Established in 1983, and online since 1996, Intertops has long been a player in the offshore sportsbook industry. Located in Antigua, Intertops currently does not allow customers from Austria, the UK, France and Australia, but is more or less available everywhere else. Overall, we are very pleased with the offering that Intertops provides, but this review will cover all of the ins and outs of the sportbook.
We have been reviewing sportsbooks since 2013 and have never seen as many options for deposits as we have at Intertops. Their deposits page currently has fourteen different options listed with a wide ranging variety of ways to get money into an account. There are the standard options available like credit card, Bitcoin and Litecoin. And then, there are also some options available like ecoPayz, eZeeWallet and a bunch of others that we, frankly, have never even heard of before. We have never given a higher score than 10 out of 10 on a section before, but this would be an area that we would actually consider it.
Limits/Ease of depositing money: 10/10
Betting InterfaceThe one drawback to being one of the first to bring your product to market is that sometimes parts of a website still look like they are from a different century.
There actually isn’t too much that is “bad” per say. For the most part, the interface looks like a standard betting site. The list of sports shows up in a simple list to the left of the page. Once the sport is selected, a list of games shows up in the middle of the page (as can be seen in the image above). On the right is one’s bet slip. Again, this is pretty standard for just about every online sportsbook site out there.
The one thing here that is a little different is their “Hottest Bets” section in the top-right corner of the page. We have not seen this anywhere before and though it does seem to be designed for the degenerate gambler, it is a unique feature that is pretty neat.
Look and feel of the betting interface: 7/10
As a more recreational sportsbook, Intertops tries to cater to the casual betting crowd. First, the minimum bet is only $1. This makes it pretty easy to get action down on just about anything. Furthering that thought, there are a huge amount of betting market offerings in the Intertops system. Obviously, you have all the major sports, but then there are exotic sports available like Alpine Skiing, Aussie Rules football and more. The last thing to note is the vigorish. Staying in line with that recreational theme, you aren’t going to get awesome odds at Intertops. All the big match ups, like NFL, will have standard 20-cent lines, and more exotic sports like UFC will generally be 30-cent.
Odds Prices and minimum bet limits: 8/10
Why Intertops got around to updating their mobile interface before implementing live betting is a big question mark. We can say that the mobile interface is absolutely fantastic. These guys clearly spent a good amount of time figuring out how to make this all work on mobile. The menu can be accessed from the top-right section of one’s screen. From there, it’s easy to get to the cashier, live chat, etc. On the left side of the screen, there is a drop down to be able to select the sport. Then, in the middle of the screen, there is a full list of games available to bet for each sport.
Overall, this stands out as one of the best mobile site designs that we have seen. If things like this are important to you, then Intertops is a must have.
Mobile Betting Platform: 10/10
There are a few reasons why Intertops also gets very high marks here. First, it comes down to reputation. We really can’t harp on this point enough. When you are in the game since 1983, you better be good and reliable or people will chose to bet their money some other place. Second, like the deposit options, Intertops provides a ton of different options for withdrawing money. The fees on all of these options vary, but as is the standard at most sportsbooks, Bitcoin is free. Third, customers will get their payouts almost always within 48 hours. This isn’t as good as the fastest sportsbooks, but it definitely falls within a reasonable amount of time to process.
Ease and price of payouts: 9/10
Pro: Very high marks for customer service.
Pro: Outstanding longevity comes with a great reputation.
Pro: Low minimum bet.
Pro: Just a ridiculous amount of ways to deposit money.
Pro: Also a ridiculous amount of ways to withdraw money.
Con: No live betting.
Con: Doesn’t have great max limits.
Con: Standard to high vigorish.

The one thing that we didn’t get a chance to cover yet is the stellar customer service. Between, email, phone and live chatting available for bettors, we found Intertops to be very responsive. They definitely rank in our top-tier for customer service. Any sportsbook that has been around for as long as Intertops has is still here for a reason. In this industry, there may not be anything more important than reputation, and Intertops has some and more to boot. All that said, Intertops is definitely a great option for anyone who wants to get some action down!
