Initially based in Cambodia, IDNPoker has grown to become the largest poker network in Asia. IDNPoker offers a wide range of poker games at different stakes around the clock. The network is based in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines, and operates over a hundred skins across Asia.
IDNPoker began operations in Cambodia in 2010. It has since grown into the third largest poker network in the world. Its market focus is Asia, particularly China and Indonesia. The company holds a PAGCOR license, as well as a BMM RNG certificate.
IDNPoker offers a large range of poker games, with hundreds of tables running around the clock. Players are given the option to play cash games or tournaments. Unlike most online poker rooms, IDNPoker does not require players to download any software. Rather, the client can be used on desktop computers. Moreover, the company offers a White Label Solution, which enables skins to connect to the IDN network.
Although the site does not promote services outside of Asia, it has participated in local gaming conferences and charity events. The website has also been translated into English. The network has been successful in Asia, but has yet to make any major moves in the Western market. Aside from participating in gaming conferences, the company has never used social media or launched any major promotional campaign.
IDNPoker has a large number of players, with a peak at the evening hours in Europe. In fact, the site claims to be the leading B2B provider of online gaming platforms. Aside from its poker network, the company offers API Integration and White Label Solutions. It also offers skins that can be downloaded or integrated with the software.
While IDNPoker does not offer multi-tabling, it has hundreds of tables. It also has a very minimalistic lobby. There are no waiting lists, and no filters to help players find their desired table. The client has buttons for different games, and players can hide full tables. It is fully translated into English, and has a minimalist design.
Unlike most online poker sites, IDNPoker allows players to choose cash games instead of tournaments. This means that players who play in tournaments don’t have to worry about rounding issues. The site also offers a range of low-stakes games, which attract less rich clients. The company also offers freeroll tournaments, which attract beginners.
IDNPoker’s focus on the Asian market is attributed to its success. The site has over 20,000 average daily connections, and the company has been able to reach the second spot in the PokerScout ranking in 2016. However, it hasn’t gained much traction in the Western market. The company has also been criticized for its use of non-random card dealing, which may increase bets or favor multiple players. This practice is criticized as unnecessary foolishness. Some users claim that non-random card dealing is more likely to benefit house-employed players, or “bots.” However, it is unclear how much this practice actually affects player behavior.
