Despite being established only in 2010, IDNPoker has grown to become the third largest poker network in the world. Its focus is on the Asian market, with a particular emphasis on China and Malaysia. Since its founding, IDNPoker has been able to take advantage of the huge promotional campaigns carried out by various countries in the Asian region, and has now risen to second place in the PokerScout rankings. In fact, IDNPoker is now the largest poker network in Asia.
IDNPoker started out as an online cardroom in Cambodia. The company has since expanded, and today, IDNPoker is headquartered in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines. Currently, IDNPoker has a license from PAGCOR, a Philippine agency that regulates gaming companies. It also has a certificate from BMM Compliance Singapore Pte Ltd for its random number generator. Its website has been translated into English, and its client is also able to be used in this language.
IDNPoker also participates in local gaming conferences and charity events in Asia. It is not well known in the Western market, however. It is rumored that IDNPoker’s success has been attributed to the intense marketing campaign carried out in local markets. While IDNPlay has participated in gaming conferences, it has not promoted its services in the English speaking market.
IDNPoker’s programming makes playing from Western countries a challenge. It does not offer stand-alone poker clients, but rather consists of different skins. It also does not feature waiting lists, and its lobby is minimalistic and lacks flashy elements. It does not require downloads, but instead uses HTML5 clients for desktop computers. In fact, it has over 600 independent doorways into the network.
IDNPoker has a very strict bank account verification process, and players must submit full bank information from a list of approved banks. This ensures that IDNPoker is able to block players who have previously been banned, or are attempting to circumvent prior account restrictions. The company also has sophisticated tracking software that can detect unusual patterns.
IDNPoker operates over 200 skins in Asia. Some of the most popular skins include 12BetPoker, SiamPoker, and Pokerdee. These skins offer various features to entice new players. Some skins offer quizzes and hand histories to help players learn how to play the game. These programs are designed to help players detect mistakes, display equity, and display odds. Typically, these programs will also save hand histories that have been played online.
IDNPoker also focuses on Thailand and Malaysia. Players can choose to play cash games, or play in tournaments. Unlike other Asian poker networks, IDNPoker only allows one table per account. This can be useful, as it allows players to keep their bankroll intact. It also helps to keep their winnings stable, since they will have to play against less-skilled opponents.
IDNPoker has become the largest poker network in Asia and one of the most popular networks in the world. It holds a BMM RNG certificate, and it participates in local charity events and gaming conferences. It also offers a White Label Solution for skins. It has a PAGCOR license, and operates out of Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines. It has over ten thousand users.
