Nice to hear you didn't have any hiccups making an account there. As far as I knew, new U.S. players needed an invite from an existing player, in order to make an Intertops
account. Maybe you got really lucky, or they are becoming more relaxed about accepting new U.S. players. I play there also, I have had my account there for a few years now. As jh169 said, the player traffic is very low, and the guarantees are very small compared to other U.S. facing sites. But then again, their bread and butter is their sportsbook, and poke is just another this they offer their customers. Trust your money is very safe there. Just know they do charge a $50 fee for cashouts by check. At least he did the last time I checked.
