Intertops is taking new USA players once again! This superb betting company stopped taking new registrations from Americans in June 2012 but in late February 2015 they re-joined the US-facing market.
This is good news for affiliates, starved of decent companies to promotes to their American traffic. There are some restricted states and they are: Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Washington.
We have promoted Intertops for many years and they are one of the best. This betting company was the first to take a bet online. Intertops were ground-breaking then and they are still big players in online betting now. They offer a sportsbook, casino and online poker room.
Their affiliate program rewards on a revenue share basis and payments to webmasters are the quickest in the business. As well as Americans, it also accepts clients from other countries.
Licensed in Antigua, this sportsbook is still on its own software, which is simple but, as a result, easy for referred customers to use. Conversion rates are good. The poker room is on the Revolution Gaming Network and unlike some other firms on that Intertops does not have problems with payouts. This is another reason to promote this company. They do their best to keep existing clients happy and pay players out in a timely manner.
There are two deductions within this program that come off the gross profit an affiliate makes. One is an ‘admin fee’ and the other is called the ‘parent net revenue’. The bonus amounts paid to your referred clients are deducted within these two fees. In effect these fees reduce your advertised affiliate commission by 6%. So if you are being paid 25%, then this will net down to 19%. This has alienated people but we believe this is a small price to pay for getting involved with such a good USA betting firm.
There is a way to improve this: once you have proved you can send them players it is worth asking them to raise the standard commission levels for you. If they can see you are worth it then they will do it, and this will negate those deductions. So if you negotiate a 30% rate, it nets down to 24%, which is very acceptable. All in all, the Intertops Affiliate Program is pretty good. It is also great that they are back in the USA market.

Are affiliates Punished for clients winning bets?
Winning clients have those negatives set against the profits. It is the net profit (losing clients less winning clients) you get paid on each month. The US-facing firms do tend to have negative rollover. Obviously, you will never have to pay them but you may have a negative that needs to be cleared before you get paid.
Although the emails can be slow to be answered by the affiliate department, I have found Intertops make affiliate payments faster than any other company.
