Everygame was the home of the first online sports bet when a punter threw down $50 on Tottenham Hotspur to beat Hereford United in 1996. Then, in 2003 as the online poker boom began, Intertops made its mark on the industry by becoming one of the first Party Poker Network operators.

Over the years, the site went through various operators. It was severely affected by Black Friday when it decided to cease offering games to American players. In 2021 it rebranded to Everygame Poker and, to this day, remains an industry leader in payment processing times as well as game quality.

Looking for a site with soft games where you can get your money out quickly? Look no further than Everygame Poker.

Overview

Everygame is the rebrand of the classic online betting site Intertops, whose roots can be traced back to the very beginning of online gambling. Starting in 1983, Intertops operated as a telephone-based sportsbook for the first 13 years of its existence before becoming one of the very first online gambling sites in 1996.

Despite its storied history as the first-ever online bookmaker, only a few people are as familiar with the Everygame brand as they should be. Moreover, they’re probably unaware that they even have a poker client! However, the brand is making significant strides within the industry and should be considered a viable option when choosing a new poker site. As such, I’ve taken it upon myself to sign up for Everygame Poker to see if they really should be considered alongside the other well-known brands in the industry.

I tried each available game type, from cash games to sit and gos to tournaments, to get a complete idea of how good the games are. I also looked at other essential aspects of a good poker room, such as mobile gaming options, customer support team, bonuses, and promotions.

Using my decade of experience in the industry, I collated all the data and formed my opinion on the site. This review outlines exactly what I think, so if you’re considering playing on Everygame Poker, it’s well worth a read.

Pros and Cons

With decades of experience as the Intertops brand, Everygame Poker does plenty of things right. Unfortunately, it also has a few things it could do better. Below I’ve highlighted what they do well, as well as any downsides you need to be aware of when considering Everygame Poker:

Poker Game Selection

As mentioned in the pros and cons section, the only 3 poker variants that Everygame offers are Hold ’em, Omaha, and Omaha Hi-Lo. Each game has fixed limit, pot limit, and no-limit tables. However, you’ll find that the Hold ’em tables are mostly no limit, and the Omaha/Omaha Hi-Lo tables are mostly pot limit.

Cash Games

Everygame Poker offers cash games for each of its poker formats, the most popular being No-Limit Hold ’em and Pot-Limit Omaha. There are tables for each limit (NL/Pot/Fixed), except for Omaha, which only offers pot limit and fixed limit. The stakes run from $0.02/$0.04 to $10/$20 for each variant’s Limit and Pot Limit games. It’s always easy to find a game at Everygame; no matter what time of the day I logged on, I could jump straight into a cash game. There is a little more variation in the stake levels for Fixed Limit games:

  • Fixed Limit Hold’em runs from $0.02/$0.04 all the way up to $50/$100
  • Fixed Limit Omaha only offers $0.10/$0.20 and $0.25/$0.50 tables
  • Fixed Limit Omaha Hi-Lo offers games from $0.05/$0.10 up to $3/$6

Table sizes vary from 6 to 8 players, with Fixed Limit games only offering a maximum of 6 players per table.

Sit and Gos

There is a lot of variation regarding the sit and gos offered by Everygame Poker–their heads-up section alone has a ton to choose from! They have heads-up sit and gos in No-Limit Hold ’em, Fixed Limit Hold ’em, Pot Limit Omaha, and Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo. Within that, they offer regular, turbo, hyper turbo, and step series sit and gos, where players can start from as little as $1.07 and earn a ticket into their $125 Sundowner tournament. As someone who loves heads-up sit and gos, I appreciate having a wide range of options.

There are also special “coin flip” sit and gos where players are given one hand and one hand only. These run from $0.50 up to $20. In fact, the $0.50 coin flip is the cheapest heads-up sit and go on the site, with the biggest buy-in going as high as $500! So if you like to throw caution to the wind and gamble like I do (and chances are, if you’re reading this, you probably do!), these coin flips are a great source of quick, easy action.

There’s even more variety in the single table sit and gos, where players can choose between 4 and 6-player tables and a special 3-handed $0.09 to $999 ladder-style sit and go. Players can buy in at the first step for only $0.09, and the winner earns a ticket to the next step up. Win nine of these in a row, and you can earn $999. 

Tickets to other tournaments on Everygame can be won through sit and gos, such as the popular Sunday Sundowner and the Stargate tournament series. These SNGs range in price from $2.90 to $32.79, with the higher buy-in sit and gos winning you entry to the higher buy-in tournaments.

If you’re more interested in getting your money immediately without having to win nine games in a row, there are 6max and 4max versions of Turbo No-Limit Hold ’em SNGs, No-Limit Hold ’em Double Up SNGs, and Turbo Omaha Hi-Lo SNGs. The minimum and maximum buy-ins for these sit and gos can be found below:

  • Turbo NLHE – $1/$200
  • Double UP NLHE – $0.25/$15
  • Turbo Omaha Hi-Lo – $1/$15

Poker Tournaments

MTTs are arguable where you’ll find the best value and the best games on Everygame. There is a range of tournaments to play every day, with special tournament series running throughout the year. The headline tournament at Everygame is the one that runs every Sunday – The Sundowner. A $125 buy-in, $10,000 guaranteed tournament, this event attracts a lot of players to the site. The exact format of the tournament changes from week to week between a deepstack, progressive bounty, and a big bounty tournament – which I liked, as it gave a nice variety to the Sunday grind each week.

What Everygame is most well known for is its satellites. For a site with such soft competition, you can win entries to some prestigious, high buy-in poker tournaments such as the Malta Poker Festival. Satellites to this event run from as little as $1.10 and you can win a prize package worth $2500! I love winning my way into higher buy-in tournaments, and I can tell you these satellites are good value.

Another event you can satellite your way into is the European Poker Classic in Velden, Austria. A $2900 buy-in tournament with an estimated $770,000 prize pool, you could potentially win some life-changing money. The buy-ins from the satellite also start at $1.10 and the overall prize at the end of the satellite rainbow is a prize package to the tournament worth over $5000.

Bonus and Promotions

Every player likes to make their money go as far as it can which is why everyone loves a bonus offer. In fact, there are a large number of people that choose a poker site purely based on their bonus offers and promotions! While it may not be the most important thing to consider, it’s definitely up there; these are the bonuses and promotions currently being offered by Everygame Poker.

Welcome Bonus

Everygame offers one of, if not the, best welcome bonuses in the current online poker scene, a 200% matched deposit bonus of up to $1000. As someone who always takes the welcome offer, this is easily the best one I’ve come across. You’re lucky to see a 100% matched deposit bonus, let alone 200%! This offer is perfect for players who don’t have a big bankroll but want to make the most of the money they’re depositing. As well as your matched dollars, you’re also given 25 free casino spins. To activate the offer, use the bonus code 1000EGP when making your first deposit.

To release the bonus, you’ll need to collect Frequent Player Points (FPPs) by playing real money poker games. The bonus is released at a rate of $5 per 83.335 FPPs, with 7 FPPs earned for every $1 raked. The good news is that you have three months to release your bonus from the first day it’s activated, so there’s plenty of time to hit the tables and earn the points you need.

No Deposit Bonuses

As well as the generous 36% daily rakeback that Everygame Poker offers, they also run a gold chip program, where players earn gold chips by collecting FPPs. The FPPs automatically turn into gold chips once you collect 100, meaning it takes around $13 of rake per gold chip. So what can you do with these gold chips once you’ve gathered a bunch?

One of the most popular things you can get with them is a no-deposit bonus. Simply cash in your gold chips by contacting the support team at poker@everygame.eu with the subject line “Gold Chips $x Bonus,” where “x” is the bonus amount you’d like to receive. There are three different bonus amounts you can choose from:

  • $5 for 20 Gold Chips
  • $25 for 100 Gold Chips
  • $100 for 400 Gold Chips

These bonuses are paid in $5 increments after meeting the FPP requirements. To release a $5 increment, you need to collect 83.335 FPPs.

Reload Bonuses

Players are given reload bonuses through the poker newsletter every now and again. To be eligible for these bonuses, you must have a valid email address registered to your account, otherwise, you’ll miss out on some great offers. When I sign up, I always add my email address to take advantage of offers like these. To claim your bonus, just click the “Bonus Code” button when making your deposit, enter the bonus code, then click “Redeem Bonus.” If done correctly, the bonus will be immediately available on your account. However, remember that the bonus code expires 30 days after usage, even if you haven’t cleared the full bonus – so be sure to stay on top of it.

FPP Race

There is a weekly FPP race for the high-volume grinders where players can win a share of a $4000 prize pool. With a top prize of $400, plus the rakeback you would have received during the week, there’s a lot of incentive to play as much as you can and earn those FPPs. However, even if you don’t claim the top spot, there are still lots of prizes to be won that are well worth competing for.

Deposit and Withdrawal Options

Everygame Poker has a wide range of deposit and withdrawal options to suit your needs. So whether you’re a hip, young, crypto-kid who only deals in bitcoin or an old-school gambler who doesn’t trust anything that isn’t a wire transfer, Everygame has an option for you. Not only does it have crypto options and traditional bank transfers, but Everygame also allows players to use eWallets such as Skrill and Neteller and credit/debit cards like Visa or Mastercard.

However, your choice may be influenced by the time it takes to deposit to/withdraw from the site. After making a deposit to an online poker site, you’ll want to start playing straight away. Still, some of the options at Everygame have a significant delay before you can use them on their site. It’s a similar story with the withdrawal options–some will be in your account within a matter of hours, but some can take a couple of weeks. I found that modern options like e-wallets and crypto had the fastest deposit/withdrawal times, so if speed is vital for you, I’d recommend using those.

As with all poker sites, there’s a lot of variation in the amount of time it takes to withdraw money from the site. The more modern methods, such as cryptocurrency and eWallets, are often the quickest, with old-fashioned methods, such as bank wires and checks, taking a lot longer. The more modern methods are also the ones that come without fees, making them the far superior option.

The two payment methods that will charge you withdrawal fees are checks and bank wires. If you request your money by check, it will cost you $50; if you request a bank wire, you will also face a $50 fee and any bank fees you may incur.

Mobile Gaming

Suppose you’re one of those people who are always on the go and don’t have time to sit at a computer and play poker all evening. In that case, Everygame Poker is available on a laptop, tablet, or mobile device. So whether you’re using an Android or Apple device, just load up the website on your phone, log in, and start playing–no downloads necessary!

Whether you want to play cash games, sit and gos, or tournaments, the full functionality of the desktop software is available through the mobile site with their Instant Play format. You get the game choices and the same filtering options, and the site layout is incredibly easy to navigate.

I found the site very well optimized for mobile devices as it runs smoothly on whichever OS your mobile device uses. In fact, it runs so smoothly that I ended up using it as much, if not more, than the desktop client!

Customer Service Options

As you would imagine, for a company that’s been around as long as Everygame has, the operator knows how to look after its customers. The customer service team is available 24/7 and offers a live text chat with a representative or dedicated email addresses depending on the nature of your query. I used the live chat function whenever I needed help, as it’s the most convenient for day-to-day questions, with fast response times and helpful staff members. If you prefer to speak to someone on the phone, there are several numbers to choose from, depending on your region. There is also an FAQ section on the site, but the main focus is on playing poker rather than the general use of the site, and I didn’t find it particularly helpful.

Live Chat: Chat with a customer service representative by clicking the “live chat” icon on the Everygame contact details page.

What Makes this Poker Site Unique 

The unique selling point of Everygame is definitely the experience it brings to the, ahem, table. Everygame existed as a betting company for over a decade before online gambling even existed, so it knows how to look after its customers and adapt to a changing marketplace. Of course, any company that has survived this long must be doing something right. By constantly listening to customer feedback and shaping its product to best suit people’s needs, Everygame Poker ensures that it stays ahead of the game.

Conclusion

With a site operating as long as Everygame, there’s much to cover! For starters, it’s clear to see how they’ve managed to stick around, as there are a lot of fantastic features on the site. I was a big fan of its mobile-optimized website and soft games, and the sheer number of live poker satellites make it a must-play for anyone who loves live poker. If you’re a fan of generous rakeback programs and soft games, look no further than Everygame Poker. Add in their outstanding 24/7 customer service and a wide range of banking options to suit your every need, and it’s clear why Everygame Poker is a fan favorite. I’d highly recommend playing on the site.
