Software and Games
Intertops Poker is the biggest site on the Horizon poker network. More and more brands are using networks to ensure there is player liquidity at all times of the day and as they have a good range of players from Europe and the US, there are games going on at all times.
The poker software could be improved, they haven’t made many changes to it over the years so to many players it can seem dated. However, those that have been playing here for years will no doubt say this is one of the best things about the site.
There are still plenty of options available to players such as being able to choose your preferred seat, auto top-up in cash games when your balance is low, auto post blinds, and muck all hands.
The lobby is straight forward and you can filter games by game type, format for tournaments, blinds/buy-in and status.
There is a 200% match bonus on your first deposit to poker of up to $1,000. You also get 25 free spins on their casino. The minimum deposit amount to qualify for this bonus is $25 and you need to contact support to claim your free spins once you have made your first deposit.
Slightly unusually, you are required to deposit first and then go to the Bonus Code field and enter the bonus code after. With most sites, you do it beforehand and it is easy to forget and start playing without activating the bonus. The code for the first deposit bonus is ‘1000ITP’. You have 24 hours after depositing to enter the code to qualify.
As with most poker bonuses, you receive funds as you play poker, $5 for every 83.335 Frequent Player Points to be exact. 1 FPP is earned for every $1 paid in rake at the cash tables and 7 FPP’s are earned for every $1 in tournament fees paid.
You get 90 days from your first deposit to earn the welcome bonus which is longer than at the majority of sites.
They offer reload bonuses from time to time so ensure your email address is up to date and you accept communication from them. They also have a loyalty scheme whereby every time you earn 100 FPPs you receive 1 Gold Chip, these can be exchanged for cash, prizes and to enter free tournaments each month.
Intertops Poker Tournaments & Tables
Due to the fairly limited amount of traffic, the tournaments at Intertops Poker aren’t too impressive. The guarantees aren’t particularly high – the daily maximum, apart from Sundays, is $1,000 – but some tournaments still fail to meet their guarantee so there is still value to be had.
On a Sunday they have a $10k Sunday Sundowner Special and a Resurrection $2k GTD which are their biggest tournaments.
There are freerolls every few hours but these normally have a prize pool of $15 maximum.
Cash game traffic is fairly low and you will normally see between 80 and 100 cash players on the site.
Table limits start from $0.02/$0.04 and go up to $10/$20, however, due to the low traffic higher stakes games are very rarely played.
As you would expect from a site that has been around for as long as Intertops, there is a good range of deposit and withdrawal methods including debit/credit cards, Neteller, Skrill and Bitcoin.
Deposits via Bitcoin can take up to an hour to appear in your wallet and players have reported issues on occasions with this method, however, they have live chat support on hand to sort any issues out quickly.
They are licensed in Curacao which is generally accepted as a reliable jurisdiction for gaming sites.
