A familiar name in the online poker industry has re-entered the U.S. market as Intertops Poker has opened its doors to Americans.
A skin on the Revolution Network, Intertops Poker has a long online gaming history that dates back to 1983 when the site was the first to accept an Internet wager on a sporting event. Online poker became an option on Intertops in 1996, also an industry first.
Black Friday in 2011 resulted in Intertops pulling out of the U.S. market, but the poker room has now made a triumphant return in joining the many other U.S.-friendly poker sites available. And that is great news for U.S. players, as Intertops’ longevity and popularity overseas allows the poker site to offer a number of promotions that U.S. players keen on earning bonus cash can take advantage of.
Nice Bonus for Depositors
Chief among those promos is the 200% up to $1,000 first-time deposit bonus. A full 90 days is permitted in which to clear the bonus – three months of exciting poker action that can see a $500 deposit earn players $1,000 – and that’s above and beyond whatever money is won at the tables.
An added bonus at Intertops is that player points are accumulated via the “dealt” method, meaning that every player dealt into a hand benefits. While that practice used to be a staple in the industry, it no longer is. The majority of sites require players to contribute to each pot in order to earn player points.
When it comes to reliability and safety of player funds, Intertops also earns high marks. As an online poker industry mainstay for almost 20 years, that type of longevity cannot be reached without satisfying customers. Security standards are strictly adhered to, as is the availability of customer support to answer any questions or concerns.
A Few Cons
While pointing out the benefits of playing at Intertops, it wouldn’t be fair if we didn’t include some of the drawbacks. There is good and bad to be found at virtually every poker site and Intertops is no exception.
The software could be better. Advancements are being made constantly in Internet software designs and customization and players often like to see the latest improvements. We cannot give Intertops the grade of ‘A’ in that regard, but can say that the software is functional. ‘B-‘ seems appropriate on our grading scale.
Also, there are a handful of states that Intertops cannot service for various reasons that pertain mostly to regulations within those states. Players in New Jersey, Washington, Kentucky, Maryland, New York, Missouri and Louisiana will not be accepted.
Positives are Plentiful
Players in the other 40+ states are welcomed with open arms and have a multitude of benefits to enjoy at Intertops. A depositor freeroll, 36% rakeback, a monthly points race, reload bonuses and more are promos to be enjoyed on a regular basis.
