Intertops Poker Review


Intertops is one of the newest rooms on the Cake Poker Network. They offer many different deposit options including major credit cards, e-wallets, bank wires, and more. Players can receive their winnings via checks, bank wires, and e-wallet transfers.

Players can pick in choose between a variety of games, stakes, and formats. Besides Limit and No Limit Texas Hold’em, Intertops members can participate in Omaha Hi and Omaha Hi/Lo games. All of these games are offered from microstakes up to some of the highest stakes founds online today. Those wanting the thrill of tournament action should navigate to the SNG or Tournament tabs. There one will find a wide variety of formats including turbo, shootout, bounty, and heads-up games.

The software itself is sleek and easy to navigate. Players can jump from one game to another using the drop-down option at the top of the screen, or by selecting a tab on the left side of the screen. Intertops members can sort the Lobby to find the best table for their game. Players can sort by players seeing the flop percentage, average pot size, and hands played per hour. At the tables, Intertops members will be happy to find resizable tables, preset avatars, different themes, and other options making gameplay a breeze.

To attract business, Intertops offers all new players a nice 200% up to $1,000 initial deposit bonus. This bonus, coupled with random reload bonuses and their loyalty program, should help players build up their bankrolls in no time. To clear this bonus and gain loyalty points, players just have to enter real money cash games, tournaments, and/or SNGs. By signing up through FTR you also receive 36% rakeback for life!

Each month, Intertops Poker hosts a new FPP Race when you can earn cash just by being a dedicated player. It’s important to note that this is ON TOP of rakeback and bonuses, so it’s a way to earn even more. Intertops is never shy about rewarding us serious grinders! Although this promo changes each month, an example of a prize would be if you earn at least 56 FPPs for 20 days of the month, they will give you $10 just for the heck of it plus an entry in a exclusive $750 freeroll. You can earn a max of $42 extra + the freeroll entry.

If you have any more questions feel free to contact Intertops 24-7 customer support. Their staff is sitting by day and night to answer any and all comments from their members. Whether you would like to know about their deposit bonus, have a question about site security, or want to figure out the best payout method, the customer service staff at Intertops will be there to help.

Software Interface/Usability

Players might be surprised to see just how nice the software at Intertops really is. The download process is simple, easy, and takes just minutes to complete. Once players create an account, they will be taken to the lobby where all the games are laid out right in front of them. From there, they can choose between Texas Hold’em or Omaha which is highlighted in red. Players can also set advanced filters like size of the table, deep or shallow buy-in, and table speed to further narrow down their options. Finally, the Lobby can be sorted by players seeing the flop, hands player per hour, and average pots-size. This will allow players to find the fishiest tables possible.

The tables themselves look just as good as the Lobby. While players cannot upload a personal avatar, they can choose from some preset options at Intertops. The tables are all resizable, making multi-tabling a breeze. Players can participate at up to 25 tables at once, although it might be difficult to find that many games running. Being able to play that many tables might slow some software down, but at Intertops your gameplay will not be affected in the slightest. Overall, their software is clean, fast, and runs without any glitches.

Poker Room Action

There isn’t a lot of action at Intertops after the small-stakes levels. While their games start as low as $.02/$.04 blinds, players just aren’t competing after the $.50/$1.00 level. The same can be said for their tournaments and SNGs, as there just aren’t many events running after the $10+$1 levels. This is both good and bad; there are plenty of fishy players populating the lower-stakes games, but without being able to play higher stakes, it can be tough to clear their 110% up to $1000 bonus.

Even with drawing from the Cake Network player pool, there just isn’t enough action to sustain a grinder’s attention. Intertops is a great room to supplement your play, but for those wanting to 10+ table, they might need to look into multiple rooms.

Ease of Game, Ease of Money Making, Fish Rating

Sites like Intertops have a large amount of fish and European players. These members tend to be loose, passive, and willing to donate their stacks with mediocre hands. Overall, the play at Intertops is much easier than at sites like PokerStars and Party Poker.

Bonus and Promotions

There are many different bonuses and promotions running at Intertops. New players can receive a 200% up to $1,000 initial deposit bonus + 36% rakeback. This bonus clears in $5 for every 83.335 FPP players earn. In order to receive these points, players will have to compete in real money cash games, SNGs, and tournaments. To receive this bonus, make sure to type in the Intertops Poker bonus code 1000ITP in the cashier AFTER making your initial deposit. This bonus expires 90 days after your first deposit, but you can clear partial amounts. Players can also stack their bonus offers with other reloads that might be offered from time to time.

36% rakeback is paid out daily, in $10 increments. It should be deposited directly into your account, from Intertops Poker.

Intertops members are also automatically eligible for their Loyalty Club. There are 50 different loyalty levels with each giving players different rewards. Intertops makes it difficult to lose your status, as you would have to fail to earn enough FPPs in consecutive months to fall levels. Players can also earn larger rewards for going through the levels faster. These “turbo tiers” must be completed in 3-6 days.

Frequent player points are calculated based on rake or fees paid in real money games. Rakeback players will earn 0.5 FPPs per dollar raked by the entire table at a cash game and 3.5 FPPs for $1 in tournament fees. For example, a player participating in a $20+$2 tournament will earn 7 FPPs. This is half the rate that non-rakeback players earn them; but this disadvantage is more than compensated by the 36% rakeback that you’ll be receiving at the same time.

For tournament and/or SNG grinders who have signed up using our special links, this bonus works out to more than 21% cashback, which when combined with the 36% rakeback, is equal to a total of 57% value back! At cash games, your effective cashback percentage will depend on many factors but should also give you a significant return. That is quite a good bonus, as most sites deposit promotions only result in 15-25% rakeback equivalent.

Rakeback Review

All players who signup through FTR will be given 36% rakeback for life. This is also included while earning your first deposit bonus of 200% up to $1,000. Rakeback is paid daily, in $10 increments. For example, if one day you generate $135 in rake, you would earn $48.60 in rakeback. $40 would be paid the next day with $8.60 rolled over until you earn an additional $1.40 in rakeback.

Cash Games
36% of all rake generated while playing all ring games.

36% of all tournament fees paid will be returned. For example, if you played 100 $20+$2 SNGs, that is a total of $200 in rake and $72 would be given back as rakeback.
