Compared to live poker, online play is much faster and easier. In fact, players report seeing more hands per hour than in a live game. Also, they are more likely to see improbable bad beats. In addition, online poker rooms often feature poker freeroll tournaments, which attract new and novice players. Many online poker rooms also offer online poker schools to speed the learning curve for new players.
IDNPoker is the largest poker network in Asia, and the third largest in the world in terms of traffic. Its focus is on Thailand, China, and Malaysia, but it also has a presence in other parts of Asia. The company holds a BMM RNG certificate. It was launched in Cambodia in 2010.
IDNPoker uses HTML5 clients for desktop computers, which allow players to play cash games or sit back and watch the action. The site also offers an API integration for skins, which allows skins to be integrated into the site. It also offers a White Label Solution, which allows skins to be branded by the company.
IDNPoker uses a minimal lobby, which is not as fancy as many other poker sites. The site does not feature waiting lists, so players are able to join a table right away. It also allows players to hide full tables, which is helpful when you need to keep the amount of time your table is occupied to a minimum.
IDNPoker is currently headquartered in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines. The company is also licensed by PAGCOR and holds a BMM RNG certificate. While it does not have stand-alone poker clients, it does offer an API integration and a White Label Solution for skins.
IDN Poker has over ten thousand concurrent users, and is the largest B2B provider of online gaming platforms in Asia. It operates over 200 skins throughout Asia. It also offers API integration, which allows skins to be branded and displayed on the site. There is also an extensive library of skins for a wide variety of poker games, including Omaha and Hi-Lo. It also has a White Label Solution, which allows skins and websites to be branded by the company.
There is an increasing number of complaints about non-random card dealing in online poker rooms. This type of card dealing may be in favor of multiple players, and can encourage players to bet more than they otherwise would. In addition, it may be an effort to dissuade new players from trying their hand at poker.
Some poker sites also offer side games against “the house,” for real money. The odds in these games are usually in favor of the house. This is especially true when the side game is a tournament. The site will take a rake from the pot, similar to the vig paid by bookies. The rake is normally capped at the maximum fee. It is calculated as a sliding scale, and is collected from most real money ring game pots.
