Founded in 2010, IDNPoker started off in Cambodia and has since expanded to become one of the top poker networks in Asia. The network is headquartered in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines, and operates over 200 skins in Asia. It has a focus on Thailand, China, Malaysia, and Indonesia. It also participates in local gaming conferences. It is considered a B2B provider of online gaming platforms.
IDNPoker is licensed by PAGCOR. It is also certified by BMM for its RNG (random number generator) technology. Its rooms are translated into English and the company also participates in local charity events. It has a stand-alone mobile client. The IDNPoker Network client performs well and is a copy of the desktop client.
IDNPoker offers a range of games and is available in both a stand-alone version and the network client. Its software displays equity, odds, previous statistics, and other information for known players. It also saves hand histories played online. The software also provides quizzes and displays variance.
IDNPoker has a strong focus on Asia, and the company’s success is believed to be a result of a strong marketing campaign in local markets. The company has not promoted its services in the Western market. Until recently, the network was virtually invisible on the Internet. In 2016, it jumped into the second place of the PokerScout rankings. The network has participated in gaming conferences and charity events in Asia. However, there are reports of insider cheating.
It is believed that the company may be using non-random card dealing, which favours “bots” and other players. This is a form of insider cheating, which can occur without the knowledge of the site managers. However, the company claims that it has a two-factor security system to prevent this type of cheating.
The company also claims to have sophisticated tracking software that can detect unusual patterns. However, the software is not publicly available. The company also claims that it can block players from their accounts if they attempt to cheat.
IDNPoker only allows one table to be opened per account. If a player wishes to multi-tabling, they will need to open a new account and add a second table. However, the company does not feature a waiting list. This is a common feature in casinos. A casino player with a 5% win rate would only break even if the dealer gave them tips.
It is estimated that the average casino player can earn between $24 and $40 an hour, but in an online poker room, a player can earn up to $24 an hour. It is also possible to see more hands per hour and get improbable bad beats. The player will also see more pots that are randomly large. While this can be fun, it can also lead to discouragement for new players. If a player is constantly “topping up” their chip stack, they will not have to worry about rounding issues.
The company is not known for using social media, but it has participated in gaming conferences and charity events in the Asian market. It is a major B2B provider of online gaming platforms, and it has a focus on the Asian market.
