Cake, well, Cake takes 4 months to pay. Everleaf paid me free WU in a couple days, but that now takes a month last time I checked not to mention their Euro rake is ABSURD.
I chose Intertops knowing full well it would cost me $50 to get a check.
Cliffs: Sites can charge what they want. Some sites collect more rake while others give no rakeback. There is more to the situation than just looking at how much a cash out costs. You have to remember Intertops is a sportsbook, they are better off if it is difficult to cash out. Also, they really don't want to be sending out a lot of small checks in the current US environment. If you want friendly payouts for small stakes I recommend you take advantage of Bodog's 1 free check/month.
P.S. Intertops payout fees/information is publicly available information and has been posted in this thread numerous times. It is up to the customer to be informed.
Thank you very much LT22!
As we all know, a lot of things changed in the online gaming business during 2011 and because of these changes there are very few options for US players now adays. Deposits and withdrawals are not as easy as before and merchants know this and can therefore demand more money for processing than before and believe me they do.
The government is always looking to close down our accounts and taking care of our players money and that is why we atm have a small issue with our bank wires. This will however be fixed within a week and we would like to ask you guys for some patience in regardst to this. To be noted is that we do offer one bank wire free of charge every month. We have always guaranteed our affiliates and players their money and we will continue doing so.
