Intertops Poker Review

Online since 1996, Intertops Poker was the first online poker site to accept real money bets. It speaks volumes that, more than two decades later, they're still going strong.

Part of the Cake Poker Network, Intertops has no shortage of players thanks to a strong offering of poker variants, a longstanding reputation as a safe place to play and some great bonuses that we'll talk a little more about below.


As you'd expect from a poker site with over two decades worth of experience, Intertops Poker knows exactly how important offering good bonuses is to enticing new customers and keeping existing players loyal.

They offer a 200% up to $1000 deposit bonus, paid out in $5 increments as you play, which is definitely pretty respectable and is higher than the welcome bonus offered at many other poker sites. There are also various promotions like reload bonuses, three daily freerolls and Frequent Player Point races

Games and Tournaments

No matter what type of poker game you like, there's a good chance Intertops has you covered. Once you've signed up and logged in, you'll find all of the following poker variations on offer:

Game Selection

  • Texas Hold'em
  • Omaha
  • Omaha Hi/Low
  • 7 Card Stud
  • 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo

Not the widest variation of games, but given that some online poker sites only offer Omaha and Hold'Em, there may be a couple of variations that you'll be glad to see on that list.

There are plenty of tournaments on offer, almost 100 on an average weekday in fact, with buy-ins ranging from $0.10 all the way through to $100+. In terms of very large tournaments with huge prize funds, you won't find all that much because most of the players on Intertops are beginners.

Qualifying For Land-Based Events

Here's something that makes up for the relative lack of tournaments with big prizes. For a pretty low buy-in, just a few dollars, you can earn places in land-based tournaments in exotic locations like Barcelona and the Caribbean.

Better still, these prizes include travel expenses, accommodation and meals/beverages, so even if you don't win the tournament at least you'll get a vacation out of it. These packages alone make Intertops worth a look.


Because they offer a decent bonus structure and extremely regular smaller tournaments there's always a heap of players against which you can pit your skills, whichever variant you're looking to play and whatever time you arrive.

However, Intertops also offers a casino and sportsbook as well as poker, and many players switch between the three. This means that a lot of Intertops poker players are quite inexperienced. That's no bad thing, as it means they may be prone to bad bets, but it also means they might play a bit slowly or bluff you accidentally.

Device Compatibility

You can use Intertops Poker on both Mac and PC, but if you're playing on an Apple computer you'll be limited to using their no download/instant play offering. This is hardly a disaster, as the difference between the graphics on Intertops's downloadable client and their browser version isn't particularly noticeable.

At the time of writing, Intertops doesn't have a dedicated mobile app. Given the explosive rise of mobile gambling this might seem like they're leaving money on the table, but you have to think that they've been around long enough to know what they're doing.

Intertops's graphics are hardly going to blow you away–and the relative lack of oversized tournament jackpots might put some players off–but with a good reputation spanning more than two decades, a solid range of games and the chance to win some great all expenses paid tournament entries, it's still got a lot going for it.
