Located in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines, IDNPoker is a B2B provider of online gaming platforms. It is considered to be one of the leading online gaming platforms in the world. In fact, IDNPoker has managed to become the second largest poker network in the world.
It was first launched in Cambodia in 2010. It is the most widely known online poker operator in the Asian market. IDNPoker holds a gambling license from PAGCOR. In addition, the IDNPoker network holds a BMM RNG certificate. It also participates in local gaming conferences. The network’s success has been attributed to the huge promotional campaign that was carried out in the Asian market. IDNPoker has also participated in charity events. However, it has failed to make inroads into the Western market.
The network was almost invisible on the internet until 2016. It has never promoted its services in the English-speaking market. The IDNPlay network has participated in gaming conferences and charity events in Asia. In 2016, it managed to climb to second place in the PokerScout rankings.
IDNPoker is a desktop-based client that does not require players to download anything. The lobby has a minimalist design and does not feature waiting lists. The client is also available for mobile devices. The client has been certified by BMM Compliance Singapore Pte Ltd. In addition, IDNPoker’s random number generator is certified by BMM Testlabs. The room is translated into English and the lobby is also fully translated. The room does not feature full tables.
IDNPoker has a wide range of skins that cover the Asian market. The company has an API Integration that allows skins to be integrated into the room’s software. It also offers a White Label Solution for skins. Unlike other poker room software, IDNPlay’s client is fully translated into English. The company operates over 200 skins across Asia. The website is also translated into English.
IDNPoker’s lobby has a minimalist design and is void of waiting lists. It has a small amount of space for the players to choose from cash games. It only allows one table per account. It also does not offer stand-alone poker clients. It uses HTML5 clients for desktop computers. This means that play from Western countries will be difficult.
IDNPoker’s rake structure is similar to that of bookies. It is calculated as a percentage of the pot. It is normally capped at the maximum fee. This means that players who “top up” their chip stack do not have to worry about rounding issues. The rake is collected from most real money ring game pots. This is a typical practice in Asian poker rooms.
The company has also participated in local gaming conferences and charity events. However, it has failed to attract much attention in the Western market. The company’s success has been attributed to its huge promotional campaign that was carried out in the South Asian market. The IDNPoker network has not participated in social media or social events.
