IDNPoker and IDNPlay
IDNPoker is one of the largest poker networks in the world, with a large focus on the Asian market. It was launched in Cambodia in 2010, and is now headquartered in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines. In 2016, IDNPoker made a huge leap to the second position in the world’s top poker networks ranking.
IDNPoker is licensed by the Philippines Gaming Commission (PAGCOR), and is considered to be the leading B2B provider of online gaming platforms. IDN Poker has over 200 skins operating in the Asia-Pacific region. These skins include 12BetPoker, SiamPoker, and Pokerdee. The site has also implemented a White Label Solution that lets other companies integrate their own games.
IDNPlay is another major poker network. Founded in 2010, the network’s success is said to be largely a result of its intensive marketing campaign in the local market. The network also participated in several gaming conferences and charity events in Asia. However, its success in the Western markets is unclear. Since the network has never actively promoted its services in the English-speaking markets, there aren’t many reports of its success in the West.
One of the main advantages of using IDNPlay is that the site’s language is fully translated into English. This means that players from other countries can still enjoy the service without any hassle. On top of that, there are no verification requirements, and the site doesn’t require the player to download any software. Although it doesn’t feature many traditional poker room features, it has a modern, minimalistic design.
IDNPoker is the largest poker network in Asia, with a focus on China and Thailand. It is currently ranked as the third-largest poker network in the world in terms of traffic. Because of its strong focus on the Asian market, the site has experienced an enormous growth. Despite its massive expansion, IDN has not been able to gain much traction in the Western market. That is, until recently, when it reached the second position in the PokerScout rankings in 2016.
IDNPoker has a relatively small lobby, with only four tables. This limits the number of players who can join the tables at any given time. To access the lobby, players can either use their mobile device, or log in to the desktop client via PC. A few seconds after logging in, the lobby will open. Users are allowed to play in either cash games or tournaments.
As of today, IDNPlay has over ten thousand concurrent users. Its rooms are also fully translated into English, and the company hosts a number of charitable events throughout the year. But because the company is primarily focused on the Asian market, the site doesn’t promote its services in the Western market. Therefore, playing from Western countries can be a bit difficult.
Lastly, IDNPoker offers rupiah as a currency. This is a benefit to Indonesian poker players. Also, there is a wide selection of kartu games available. Additionally, the site provides 24-hour customer support.
