Intertops Stays Open In The US

Intertops announced Oct. 20 that business will go on as usual and that they will continue to accept bets from American bettors.

The recent passage of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act has forced publicly traded sites like and PartyPoker to stop servicing US gamblers. Intertops however, will continue like usual, offering sports betting, online casino, poker and games.

"We consider online gaming to be legal in most U.S. states and sanctioned by the World Trade Organization," the site said.

"We are licensed and regulated in both Canada and Antigua and comply with every law within the jurisdictions in which we operate. We are dedicated to offering our worldwide customers a efficient and enjoyable service via our online sportsbook, casino, poker room and games. As a privately owned and independent company we have arranged to fully accept and disperse payments for US-based gamblers."

Intertops offered the world's first online betting platform back in 1996, and an online casino followed in 1997. Intertops then started its poker room and games in 2003. The company has not only announced the continuance of its US operations, but also made known that it has made arrangements to accommodate an influx of new customers.

"Intertops has been in business for 23 years, 10 of them online. Our reputation as a responsible and trustworthy gaming site stands alone. We will continue to ensure that deposits and payouts are as quick and safe as they have always been," Intertops added.
