Intertops is the world’s first and oldest online sportsbook. The bookmaker formed in 1983, long before internet wagering became available. Intertops.com launched in 1996 as the first online sportsbook in the world.
They took a wager from a Finnish bettor Jukka Hunkavarra on Jan. 17th, 1996 which was the first bet ever placed at an online sportsbook. Hunkavarra profited just a few dollars, but on that day, online betting was born. Intertops was also the first sportsbook to launch a mobile betting site in 2000.
Today, they base out of Antigua and Barbuda. Licensed and regulated by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission. Intertops has more of an international clientele compared to other US-facing sportsbooks. Their site translates to German. They also offer support in several languages, including Italian and Polish.
For several years, Intertops was an invite-only sportsbook for Americans. Existing US-based players could invite players, but didn’t accept new sign-ups through their website. In February 2015, this changed. Intertops reopened sign-ups and are allowing players to create accounts from inside the United States. In addition to their online sportsbook, they offer an online casino and poker room.
