Intertops question

I made a deposit and got a 20% bonus.. should have written and asked that it be removed because I'd rather not play with a bonus at a casino that isn't an EZ bonus system, but was itching to play. I doubled my deposit, which for me means, its time to cash out. When I go to cash out tho, it says my Intertops balance is $0.00. Is this because I haven't met wagering requirements yet, or do I need to transfer my winnings back into my sportsbook account before I can make the withdrawl? I wish this casino had live help so I could ask, I am impatient... lol

Anyone know?

Normally you can cashout directly from the casino without having to do a transfer first. May be a bonus thing? I don't deposit there because it takes so bloody long for cashouts to clear the Reverse period.

Hmmmmmm... wish I had known about the long reverse period before I deposited. Perhaps I should take my own advice and research a little better... credited doesn't always mean I want to drop my $ there. Oh well, as long as I eventually get it, which I'm sure I will, it's all good. I'm assuming as well that I haven't wagered enough yet, but I emailed them to ask if that's the case, and if so how much more do I have to go. When bonuses are included I think I will definitely stick to the EZ bonus casino's. Way easier than the guessing game!

i stopped playing there about a year ago, because payouts took so long time..
have you tried to transfer money to the sportsbook?
I m not sure anymore, but that could be the clue.

Yeah, I just tried and it said I could transfer a max of $150. I have $200 total. Pretty sure that means I haven't met wagering requirements, but if it'll let me transfer $150 and cash that out I will give up the other $50. Still waiting for their response to my email... wonder if they respond on weekends. I don't want to transfer it and lose that $50 only to find out I can't cash in the $150 either. I really wish ALL casino's had live help!

Yup.. you do have to transfer to your sportsbook before withdrawing.. BUT.. and I wish I had researched this before depositing (lesson learned)... you have to wait 14 days from your first deposit before you can withdraw. WTF... I don't get that rule, and I never would have played there had I read it. I'm off to bust out my $200 and remove it from my computer :mad:

what about leaving the money for 14 days, withdrawing and THEN uninstall and forget?

Your are absolutely right: its a shame- especially for a accredited casino!

Hadn't quite met playthrough requirements anyways. Won at Villento so it all evens out. Will just give them my $ from now on. Really seems odd to me that this casino is accredited with the slow pay issues and the 14 day waiting period. I don't have to wait 14 days to deposit, why should I have to wait 14 days to withdraw? Oh well, they lost a customer, and I'm certain I'm not the first and won't be the last to leave over that stupid rule.

Yeah it's crap. I emailed them about it when I was reviewing them and they said it's standard for the first withdrawal, though I know one or two players found it was quicker.

Shame - if they sorted out their slow payout speeds in general, they'd be up there but as it is they have put themsleves at a disadvantage. Still, for players from NY, NJ and the other 9 States it's Intertops or go RTG. But it seems silly that a casino would spend all that money on an MG licence, loads on luring in players, then piss them off at the first opportunity.

She could be wrong, but the cs at Intertops told me that NJ is not accepted.

*sighs* yeah I'm still pretty miffed about the whole thing. Mostly at myself for not doing my research, guess I trusted that if it was accredited here and at the other forum I frequent, it would be an ok place to play. Turns out it probably IS ok, but most people in the US just put up with the BS because they have no other choice. I however do have a choice, and my choice is to run far and fast. In end only $100 lost and a big lesson learned - just glad there wasn't more at stake and that I'm in a position right now where $100 is small $. Could have been worse! :thumbsup:

You need to be careful to check the banking rules when depositing at a casino that also has a sportsbook because it's not that uncommon for books to have a waiting period before the first withdrawal is made, transaction fees, and other odd rules.

No you cant deposit with the card, just withdraw :(

sorry simmo. i meant deposit with a credit/debit card. i only use netspend gift cards to deposit. lol. its funny even after my banks stop letting me use instacash and stopped my neteller transactions, my debit card still worked. not anymore though so now its deposit with gift card cashout by check. i wasnt sure i could deposit that way and then withdrawl through neteller.

Yes, you can get a check from them no matter which method you use to deposit :thumbsup:

The only reason I mentioned a check is because you get hit with so many fees if you use their debit card...

Intertops Adjectives Include Greedy, Petty, Lame, Deceptive

I also play some at Intertops and frankly they are so screwed up I almost enjoy seeing what bizare new policy they will dredge up each day.
I too fell for the 14 days after joining to cash out. I win a thousnad the first day only to learn of this. You have to go to another division of their company to even find this and they will tell you you should have read this upon signing.'
Now they had a Christmas 20% deposit bonus. BUT Not applicable if you have withdrawn in past 30 days or balance is over 200.00. I withdrew to Netellet and put it all back withion 24 hrs. Of course it took them 2 days to get it to neteller.
They say you can't call and ask for bonuses. No Not email for info. Call them LOL they have 4 different numbers and I can't reach anyone at 9pm PST. On Jamica Mentality time. The will have 2 people argue with you for a half hour to save 5.00. I call them three or four times day about a bonus or complaint. Try it. The experiences are priceless.
I have never seen another casino like these guys. They dream of ways to keep from ever paying you.
ALSO GET A LOAD OF REFERAL PROGRAM THE MORONS OFFER
Referal bonus 20% of 1st deposit up to 50.00 after probably 200x restriction
I got 6.00. I was told when I refer another 5 people I would get that Again. I am Not making this up LOL LOL LOL
I could go on and on. Give em a call. What a hoot.
