About Intertops

Compared to other online poker sites, Intertops are tiny. What you will find is that the tables feature a lot of loose and wild action. This is because Intertops are a popular sports betting brand. With a single account covering sports, casino, and poker games – you will find plenty of people in the poker games who are there to relax and gamble. German players are welcome.
You will also find some generous bonus offers. Intertops combine their big poker welcome bonus with free slot spins. There are plenty of promotions and ongoing rewards to enjoy for all of the different types of gambling. This brand shares tables with other sites on the ‘Horizon Poker Network’. If you have been around poker for a while, you might recognize the software client, which was originally used on the Cake Poker network.

Weekly Promotions

Intertops will send you regular promotional offers via e-mail. The most common type are reload bonuses. These are customized to your games and buy-ins, working in the same way as the initial matched welcome bonus. Reload bonuses work with custom bonus codes. You need to manually apply these by using the ‘Redeem Bonus’ button inside the cashier.
Reload bonus codes will last for 30 days after they are issued.

Other Poker Promotions at Intertops

There are FPP races every week. These are leaderboard contests, where players compete for a share of $4000 based on the total number of points earned in all games. 100 players are paid, with the winner getting more than $400.
One-off promotions can also be found. These can involve qualifiers for live tournament events, freerolls and special online tournament events.

VIP Programs

Like most online poker sites, Intertops have a tiered loyalty scheme. This is based on the frequent Player Points you earn from the games. These are awarded at 1 per $1 in rake (based on the table contribution) and 7 for each $1 in tournament buy-in fees.
Levels are numbered. If you are under level 10, it is not possible to lose a level. Once you get over level 11, you will return to level 10 if you fail to earn enough points for 2 back-to-back months.
You can swap your points for Gold Chips at increasingly favorable rates as you move up levels in the loyalty scheme. These chips can then be used to buy cash bonuses.
Here are the current redemption rates:
– $5 for 20 Gold Chips
– $25 for 100 Gold Chips
– 100 for 400 Gold Chips
You can also use them to enter special Gold Chip sit and go tournaments.

Game Types at Intertops Poker

According to tracking services, Intertops sees 24-hour peaks of 100 cash game players – with many times this number enjoying the tournaments. This limits the number of active tables, with no action outside of the smaller stakes NL Hold’em games. At peak times (evenings and weekends), you can find the occasional PLO game. There is no action in the other poker formats.

Cash Games

Action starts at the micro-limits. The smallest stakes games have blinds at just 2c / 4c. They go up to 5c / 10c and then 10c / 25c. It is rare to find games above the $1 / $2 ($200 buy-in) levels. Most of the tables have 6 players. The software gives you a clean top-down table view. You can choose from pictures to represent you at the tables, which can be resized to help with multi-tabling.
Intertops does not offer a fast-fold poker variation.

Poker Tournaments

The showcase tournament at Intertops happens on Sundays. This is called the ‘Sundowner Special’ and has a $10,000 guaranteed prize pool. It costs $110 to enter. There are satellite qualifiers running all week from just $1 where you can win a seat in this game. Note that the prize pool reverts to $4,500 at quiet times of the year.

Other tournaments have quirky names. Examples are the Chocolate Factory, Workout Routine or the ‘Resurrection 2k Guaranteed’. These games sit with a list of smaller buy-in tournaments without guarantees. There are intermittent tournament events. Examples include the ‘Wipeout Series’ (rebuys) and qualifiers to live poker events.

Sit and go tournaments are also available. There are different speeds and table sizes, which kick off as soon as they are full. Intertops does not offer any lottery / jackpot sit and go games.
