 Match Result/Straight Up

This is a straight bet on the outcome of a match, either a home win, a draw or an away win.

 Correct Score

This allows you to place a bet correctly predicting the final score on the match. Quotes for unusual correct scores such as 7-5 are available.

 First Goal Scorer

Simply select the player you think will score the first goal from the players listed*. Please note that any First Goal Scorer bet has action and there are no refunds if a player is unable to participate in the match. Quotes for other players are always available on request.

 Scorecast

Name the first player to score* and the correct score of the match:
e.g. Michael Ballack to score the first goal and FC Bayern to win 2-0, both options must be correct for the bet to be a winner.

*Winners will be determined by whichever player the relevant governing body credits with scoring the first goal (when they release their official results at the end of the game) and will be the winner for betting purposes.

 Time of First Goal

This allows you to place a bet on when the first goal will be scored in the match. Winners will be determined by whatever time the relevant governing body release as the time of the first goal (when they release their official results at the end of the game), and will be the winner for betting purposes.

 Half time / Full Time Prediction

This is a bet on the double result of the match. First you must correctly predict what the outcome will be at half time (either the home team leading, a draw or the away team leading) and then you must correctly predict the final result of the game (either a home win, a draw or an away win).

 Half Time Result

This is a straight bet on the outcome of the match at half time. You can bet on the home team leading, a draw or the away team leading.

 Score / No Score

This option allows you to bet on whether a specific team, will or will not score a goal in the match.

 Match Goals

This allows you to correctly predict the combined total number of goals scored by both teams in the match.

 Double Chance

This allows you to place a bet on a team to win or draw

 Asian Handicap

This bet can be in the form of a single or double handicap. In a single handicap one team is favoured to win by a certain number of goals, which is known as the handicap. This is then subtracted from the final result to determine the winner.

There is also the possibility of a "Draw No Bet" line, in which case there is no handicap, and all stakes are refunded if the match ends in a draw.

In a double handicap the game has two different handicaps involved, and the stake is split in half between them. Please see the examples of all possible double handicaps below.

 Grand Salami

This bet is similar to an 'over/under' bet of a game, but encompassing two or more games of the same competition played on one day. Simply predict the total number of goals to be scored in all games listed.

  • In the event of one or more matches being postponed, all bets will be considered void.
  • All games listed count for betting purposes even if one or more games are not offered as a single match bet.

Please note: 'Grand Salami' is the overall term used for a bet offer encompassing the total goals of two or more games. However, Intertops.com uses its own terms for total goals from different leagues. For example, 'Grand Banger' for the English Premier League or 'Grand Mortadella' for the Italian Series A.

For the vast majority of soccer matches, the home team is always listed first unless otherwise noted. For all of the different soccer bets listed above, only the result after regulation time (including time added on for stoppages) will count for betting purposes! Extra time, golden goals or goals scored in a penalty shoot out do not count unless otherwise noted!
