Excellent support with Live Chat available through the Intertops website. They also offer fast, standard e-mail or telephone support. Cashing out is normally problem free but can be a little slow at times. All the major standard deposit and withdrawal methods are available.
Summary – very good
Intertops have a long standing reputation as a sportsbook and within an ever uncertain internet world for players from the US, their longevity should, quite rightly, go a long way in the appeal to play at this poker room. Add to that, some high action ring tables, excellent value guarnteed tournaments and promotions plus one of the best looking Revolution Gaming Network available. One account will give you access to the online Sportsbook, Casino and Poker Room and i would recommend you check out their website regularly for all the latest promotions throughout their site. All in all, it’s a substantial package and well worth a look.

Info – Frequent Player Points (FPPs)
FPPs are used to earn bonuses and Gold Chips. This is how you get FPPs and as a result how you get your bonus money and Gold Chips.
Earning FPPs Rules
You must play on a real money table. There must be rake generated during the hand You must be dealt cards during that hand.
You earn as many FPPs as there is rake on the table as long as you are dealt cards in that hand. For instance, if the rake on the table is $0.75, you will earn .75 FPPs as long as you were dealt two cards in the hand, regardless of whether or not you bet. You can earn a maximum of 3 FPPs per hand and the calculations are accurate to the penny, so if your table raked $2.99, you will receive 2.99 FPPs.
A second way that you can earn FPPs is by paying the entry fee for a tournament. For each dollar worth of tournament fees you pay, you earn 7 FPPs once you are finished the tournament. Just like Real Money Games, the calculations are accurate to the penny, so for a $0.50 tournament fee, you will receive 3.5 FPPs.
