When it comes to the poker world, IDNPoker is the largest poker network in Asia. Since its launch in Cambodia in 2010, the site has been rapidly expanding to other Asian countries, especially Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and China. Currently, IDNPoker is headquartered in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines, and focuses on the Asian market. It has a gambling license from PAGCOR, and is a member of BMM Compliance Singapore Pte Ltd, which has certified its random number generator (RNG).
IDNPoker’s programming, however, makes it difficult for players in the West to use its services. For example, a Western player has to use a different browser than an Asian player. Additionally, IDNPoker does not provide stand-alone poker clients for desktop computers. Instead, the client is a copy of the desktop version of the website, which is fully translated into English. As a result, it has a minimal design.
IDNPoker’s focus on the Asian market has contributed to its success. The site offers a wide variety of games, including texas hold’em, super 10, and superbull. However, it only offers a limited amount of cash games, allowing only one table per account. Also, the lobby is minimalistic, which means it does not contain a waiting list. Despite this, the network has grown to become the third-largest network in the world in terms of traffic.
Unlike other poker networks, IDNPoker does not require users to download any software. Its HTML5 client is compatible with most desktop and mobile devices, and its rooms are fully translated into English. In addition, the site does not have waiting lists, and users can hide full tables in their IDNPoker client, which allows them to play at a full table without disturbing others.
IDNPoker has also been involved in local gaming conferences and charity events. In 2016, it jumped to the second position in PokerScout’s rankings. While it does not promote its services to the Western market, it does participate in local events. It has also launched a White Label Solution for skins, which allow companies to offer their own skins and games.
In addition to the various games, IDNPoker provides other services such as a white label solution and API Integration for its client. It also participates in charity events in its home country, and it has a solid presence in the local market. But the company is relatively unknown outside of its home country. This could be because of the heavy marketing campaign that has been run in its home country, which has contributed to its growth.
IDNPoker has also branched out into the mobile space. Its client is compatible with Android and iOS devices, and its sites have been translated into English. Furthermore, it has a stand-alone mobile client that is fully functional. Unlike its desktop version, though, IDNPoker does not have a social media presence. Because of this, it does not promote its services to the Western audience.
Finally, it must be noted that IDNPlay, the network that started in Cambodia in 2010, has been relatively inactive in the Western market. However, its success in the Asia market is believed to be due to a strong promotional campaign in the local markets.
