Having been launched in Cambodia in 2010, IDNPoker has grown to become one of the biggest poker networks in Asia. It specializes in Indonesia and Thailand, but it has also caught on in Malaysia and China.
IDNPoker is a licensed gambling company by the Philippine Gambling Commission (PAGCOR) and holds a BMM RNG certificate. However, there have been allegations of non-random card dealing at the site. Some claim that this tactic is used to increase bets and possibly favour house-employed players. Others argue that it is unnecessary, as it discourages new players.
IDNPoker also fights chip dumping and collusion. It does not advertise its services outside of Asia, but it does participate in local gaming conferences and charity events. It also bans players who use third-party software.
Its rake is high. Typically, it is calculated as a percentage of the pot or as a sliding scale. The fixed rake at IDNPoker is around 20%. This is comparable to vig paid by bookies. It is also similar to the maximum rake that an online poker room can charge.
IDNPoker has a low minimum deposit. In addition, it offers a bonus referral program. Those players who refer new players can receive a 15% bonus.
Its website has a clean design and its lobby does not feature waiting lists. It also offers a mobile client. In addition, it has a large promotional campaign in Asian countries. It has also jumped up in the rankings of PokerScout in 2016. It has a high fixed rake and it doesn’t offer Spins.
