“Nothing more romantic than a candle lit dinner for two,” said Thunderbolt’s manager, Alisa. “We can’t promise romance, but take some free spins -- maybe we can get your heart beating faster!”

Intertops Celebrates a Quarter-Century Since Taking First Ever Online Bet

Though many may have forgotten, at one point the concept of gambling online seemed like a futuristic pipe-dream. Prior to January 1996, it may very well have been. That is, until Intertops changed the industry, and perhaps the world, forever by taking the first ever online bet. 25 years later, the pioneering company celebrates the anniversary of that historic milestone and takes time to reflect on the years of innovation since.

Intertops was actually established in London back in 1983, and initially offered bookmaking services to players in Germany through a combination of telephone interactions and cash sent through the post.

It relocated to Austria almost a decade later to avoid British postal delays, but even in 1992 the World Wide Web was still more than a year away from common usage. Pizza Hut is considered to be the first company to complete an online transaction through the sale of a large pepperoni pizza in 1994, and it was Intertops that soon after took gambling into cyberspace.

The Austria-based operator’s brand new Intertops website handled a $50 wager, placed by a Finnish punter, on Tottenham Hotspur to beat Hereford United in an FA Cup fourth round tie on January 17, 1996.

At odds of just 1.04, the Premier League side’s 5-1 demolition of their lower-league opponents meant the punter profited by just $2, but it was a game-changing day for the betting industry, which until that day had been restricted to in-person and telephone wagering.

That $50 wager was the first of billions placed in the intervening quarter of a century, during which time Intertops has remained at the forefront of online betting. In 2000, the operator, responding to the growing potential of cell phones, launched the first-ever mobile betting site, and two years later introduced live betting.

“We remain proud of our unique place in gambling history,” an Intertops spokesperson commented. “Gambling in one form or another had been around for millennia, yet Intertops brought it into the digital world in January 1996 thanks to our foresight and pioneering spirit, which remains the same today.

Intertops marks a quarter of a century of online betting this year by launching its new, redesigned in-play Sportsbook.

“In the years since that historic day, we have striven to stay at the head of the gambling sector, offering entertainment to millions of players each year through our comprehensive Sportsbook, Poker and Casino platforms." Continued the Intertops spokesperson.

“We will always be the first, but the introduction of our new Sportsbook will also ensure that we remain the best.”

In the years since 1996 Intertops has expanded beyond sports, with the creation of Intertops Casino in 1998 and the launch of Intertops Poker in 2003, thus always ensuring that its valued players can enjoy a full range of online gaming entertainment.

“After all the years of success in the past, we remain committed to the future and providing players with the games they love to play,” the Intertops spokesperson added. “Here’s to 25 more years of a fun in a safe gaming environment.”
