Among the top poker networks in the world, IDNPoker is the third largest, based on traffic. Founded in 2010 in Cambodia, IDNPoker has since expanded to Thailand, Malaysia, China, and other Asian countries. Currently, it is headquartered in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines.
IDNPoker has received a BMM RNG certificate, and holds a PAGCOR license. However, its proprietary program makes it difficult for Western players to play. It also has an approved list of banks that are located in Asia. Consequently, players must submit full bank information from one of these banks to play. The results of the program are not publicly available, and some internet discussion forums have alleged that it is a tool to increase bets, favour multiple players, and prevent discouragement for new players.
IDNPoker uses HTML5 clients for desktop computers. However, the company has not opted to offer stand-alone poker clients. Instead, the company has developed a system for API integration that allows for a variety of skins to be used across its network of poker rooms. This system provides a white label solution to skins that are not approved by IDNPoker.
In addition, IDNPoker’s client offers a minimalist design. The lobby opens up after a few seconds, and it is not a traditional poker room with waiting lists. Instead, it shows players what tables they can play in, and which cash games they can play. It also displays previous statistics of known players.
The IDNPoker client also includes an option to hide tables that are full. It also features a variety of buttons to play different games. This includes Omaha, Super10, texas holdem, and other games. The client also displays odds, and the number of players sitting at each table.
In addition, IDNPoker operates over 200 skins in Asia. IDNPoker has been a leading B2B provider of online gaming platforms, and has become the largest poker network in Asia. The company’s focus is on Malaysia, China, and Thailand. IDN Poker has also received the PAGCOR license.
IDNPoker operates over ten thousand concurrent users. Currently, it is the second largest poker network in the world, behind Full Tilt Poker. IDNPoker is also one of the few poker networks that is fully translated into English. The company is also licensed by the Philippine Gaming Commission (PAGCOR). It is one of the few poker networks that offers a free poker demo. It also provides quizzes and hand histories.
Unlike most online poker rooms, IDNPoker does not allow players to show their hand before folding. This is because it does not have the same overhead costs as brick-and-mortar poker rooms. In addition, IDNPoker does not have the same limitations on how much cash can be deposited. The company’s fees are also generally lower than those of brick-and-mortar poker rooms. However, IDNPoker does not accept U.S. dollars, and its payments are in different currencies.
IDNPoker is also one of the only poker networks to accept digital device fingerprinting, which allows the company to recognize and ban players. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many unlicensed gaming venues have closed their doors. This has led to a massive increase in online poker traffic. As a result, many operators have reported double or even more traffic than they had before.
