IDNPoker is the largest poker network in Asia, and the third largest in the world. The network was first launched in Cambodia in 2010, and has since expanded to Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. It is currently headquartered in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines, and holds a gambling license from PAGCOR. However, the company does not promote its services in the English-speaking markets.
Although the network has been growing rapidly, it has not been able to make its mark in the Western market. However, it has managed to gain some traction in Europe, and in the spring of 2016 the IDNPlay network climbed to second place in the PokerScout ranking. This has largely been attributed to a huge marketing campaign in Asia, although there are no exact figures on its success in the Western countries.
IDNPoker offers games in a wide range of stakes and has hundreds of tables available throughout the day. There is also a stand-alone client for mobile devices. The IDNPoker lobby features a simple design and does not contain waiting lists, allowing players to pick and choose cash games at their convenience. One downside is the fact that IDNPoker does not support multi-tabling. You will need to open a separate account if you wish to play in multiple sessions. Unlike other poker networks, IDNPoker does not provide a desktop client.
The IDNPoker Network holds a RNG certificate from BMM Compliance Singapore Pte Ltd. The network offers API integration, which allows users to create and manage skins. A number of popular skins are offered including 12BetPoker, SiamPoker, and pokerdee. In addition to these, IDNPoker has created a White Label Solution for skins, which enables operators to customize the appearance of their websites. Currently, there are over 200 skins in operation across the Asian region.
Although the majority of IDNPoker’s traffic is derived from the Asia-Pacific region, it has recently begun to grow in Europe. In fact, the European market is one of the network’s biggest sources of traffic. With over 20,000 daily connections, the network has a lot of potential to increase its presence in the European markets. On average, the network has around 10,000 concurrent users.
The IDNPlay network has never promoted its services in the English-speaking markets, and it is unknown how successful it is in these markets. But it has participated in local gaming conferences, and has hosted charity events in Asia. As of 2016, IDNPlay had a large following in the Asian market, and was almost invisible on the Internet until its recent rise to the second position in the PokerScout rankings.
IDNPoker’s software is considered to be the best on the market. The platform has a soft playing field and a random number generator certified by BMM. However, this makes it difficult for users from the West to join the network. Nevertheless, it is a good choice for Indonesian poker players. Despite these issues, the network has a very large number of registered users, and it is currently ranked as the third-largest poker network in the world.
