Currently headquartered in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines, IDNPoker is a leading B2B provider of online gaming platforms. The company is licensed by the Philippine Anti-Money Laundering Commission (PAGCOR) and operates over 200 skins across Asia. Its website is translated into English and offers an API integration.
Although the company has a strong focus on the Asian market, it does not actively promote its services in the international market. In fact, its success in the Asian market is not yet well known in the Western market. It also has a relatively poor presence on the internet, with most of its sites being virtually invisible until recently.
The company’s main product is the IDN Poker client, a minimalistic and fully translated poker lobby that allows players to choose cash games and seated players. The lobby is relatively free of filters and waiting lists. It opens after a few seconds and has buttons for different games and seated players. It also provides information on the odds, variance, and equity of each hand played. The software also includes quizzes and hand histories for known players.
The company’s success is believed to be the result of intense marketing efforts in local markets. It has participated in local gaming conferences and charity events in Asia. However, the success of IDNPlay is not yet known in the Western market. Several internet discussion forums have alleged that the company deals in non-random cards, which may favour “bots” and house-employed players. If true, this may have adverse consequences for new players. However, if the company is able to implement a good system of tracking, this may prevent such discouragement.
IDNPoker is not a stand-alone poker client, but it does offer a HTML5 client for desktop computers. It also has a White Label Solution for skins. Its client has no filters or waiting lists, but it does offer a table arrangement by the number of seated players. It also has a variety of skins, including 12BetPoker, SiamPoker, and Pokerdee.
Some online poker sites require players to convert their funds into the currency of the site before depositing. Often, the conversion is done at a low premium compared to banks. Some sites only accept US dollars, but others accept payments in a variety of currencies. Most online poker sites are regulated, so the risks that the company takes with players’ money are limited. It also does not have to pay interest on the players’ bankrolls.
The company’s software is equipped with two-factor security, which is regarded as a good way to protect players’ money. They also have a reputation for fighting unfair games. The software uses sophisticated tracking technology to detect unusual patterns. It also features a tool that allows the company to recognize and block banned players. Some poker sites also have a feature that allows them to block a player’s account if they use a digital device. This is important because of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to the closure of many live gaming venues around the world.
