General Info

Intertops is one of the most famous and significant bookmaking companies in the history of betting. Today the name of the bookie would hardly tell something to the young generation of bettors. However, Intertops has written its name in the history of betting with golden letters.

The predecessor of Intertops was founded in the year 1982 in Germany, accepting bets illegally.  A lot of time will pass before betting is allowed on the soil of Germany. Without waiting for changes in German law, the founders of the underground betting company decided to create an official betting company in the United Kingdom. Thus, in 1983 the betting company Intertops began its operation.

A huge part in development of the bookmaking company was played by Simon Noble. He began working at Intertops in 1989 at the age of 18. Two years later the office of the betting company moved to Austria. The Englishman Noble also changed his registration. In the year 1994 Simon joined the management of Intertops, having lead the group, which was developing online platform. The bookie had set a goal for themselves to become the first online bookmaker in the world.


On 17th January 1996 the Finnish Jukka Honkovaara logged in to the Intertops website and made a bet in the amount of 50 dollars in the match Tottenham – Hereford.  It was the first online bet in history. And it was successful. Honkovaara bet on Tottenham’s victory and the Londoners won with a score of 1:0. The win of the Finnish bettor was only two dollars as the odds on the victory of the first side were only 1.04.

intertops betting company held the status of the main innovator on the market in the future as well. In the year 2000 the bookie became the first one to launch a mobile website. And in 2003 Intertops managed to create the only system to operate the account and bankroll for the bookmaker, casino and poker. Poker room separated later. Now it is known as Party Poker.

The bookmaker keeps working nowadays. Whereas serious changes happened in the betting operator’s policy. The main target market for Intertops is the USA. The bookie works on a license, which was issued by the Government of Antigua and Barbuda.

Sports covered by GTbets

As we have already noted Intertops bookmaking company is focused on the market of the United States. And almost all American betting companies can be distinguished with a pretty scarce money line. However, Intertops bookie’s betting offer looks quite profitable compared to other bookmakers. If you compare the bookmaking company with betting company, it looks pretty poor. The total number of categories for betting does not reach even 20. The bookies covers the American football, Baseball, Hockey, Basketball, Tennis, Boxing, Darts, cricket, entertainment, golf, handball, auto and motor racing, politics, snooker, the European football and volleyball. The first five categories are considered the basic ones.

The number of leagues in football is decent and is more than 40. At the same time, Intertops bookmaking company offers the action line for the league matches of Vietnam, Venezuela, Tunisia, Thailand and some other exotic countries. Even the action line for the English Premier League and the Champions League matches is quite humble. Only 12 additional submarkets.

The number of countries in Basketball and hockey does not reach even 10. The money line is humble for the top leagues of NBA and the NHL are humble. Everything is limited to only few handicaps and totals, as well as the half and quarter bets for the NBA. The situation is similar with hockey. Tennis is covered including Challengers. The action line even for the most important matches does not include special bets. The odds are decent in the bookmaking company. You can often come across the combinations of 1.90 – 1.90.

Although Intertops bookmaking company played a crucial part in the development of live betting, but nowadays there are dozen and even hundreds of betting operators, in which the In-Play section is of much better quality. The number of live events exceeds one hundred only in the most saturated sporting days. The preference is given to the league from North America, tennis matches, important matches in football, hockey and basketball. There is no full-scale match center or live broadcast in Intertops bookie’s website. The only thing that should be noted is that Live action line extends significantly.

Overall Opinion

American and foreign players give positive reviews about Intertops bookmaking company in general. For example, the bookie received the highest possible mark at SBR website – A.

Intertops betting company is the first ever online bookmaking company in the world. In spite of such a status, the betting operator can boast noticeable success in the last ten years. The bookie even had to reconsider the strategy of its activities. Once a popular betting company in Europe now works in the American market in an acceptable format. The door to the bookmaking company is open for players from all over the world. However, apart from a decent bonus program, Intertops bookie concedes even to average bookie’s operating in Europe.

Positive and negative sides

The positive sides of the bookmaking company include a very generous bonus program, stable payouts to players and a high-quality poker room.  The bookmaker also has a rich history in providing services of online entertainment.

The disadvantages of the bookie include dated website design. But this complaint is no longer relevant in 2017. Some players also note that the bookie sometimes lowers the amount of successful bets. For example, the bettor makes a bet of $ 85, while the betting company “counts” the bet of $ 80.
