Located in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines, IDNPoker is a B2B provider of online gaming platforms. The company’s focus on the Asian market and its aggressive promotional campaign are credited with its success. However, the company has a relatively weak presence in the Western market. Its software and programming make playing from Western countries a chore. It also has a somewhat buggy platform.
IDNPoker was founded in Cambodia in 2010. It has since opened doors in Asia, with offices in Japan, Korea, Singapore and the Philippines. Its multi-currency platform means that players can deposit and withdraw in a variety of currencies. The company’s random number generator (RNG) has been certified by BMM Compliance Singapore Pte Ltd. The company has also received a PAGCOR license. Its rake system is similar to that of a bookie, but instead of paying a vig on each ring game pot, the company collects a percentage of the pot. This system is similar to the sliding scale rake structure used by some online poker sites.
The company has also developed an API integration solution for skins. The software is designed to display equity, hand histories, and statistics about known players. The software can also be used to display odds, variance, and other important metrics. This software is also designed to give players quizzes.
The company also participates in local gaming conferences and charity events. Its multi-currency platform allows players to make deposits in a variety of currencies, and its HTML5 desktop client is fully translated into English. Its lobby is minimalistic and does not feature waiting lists. The company has also adopted digital device fingerprinting, which allows it to recognize new accounts and block those that have previously been banned.
Despite its success, the company has a rather shady past. There have been allegations of non-random card dealing, and attempts to manipulate the game’s outcome. This may be a case of unintentional foolishness or a ploy to encourage multiple players to make bigger bets. There are also rumors that the company’s website has been translated into English, although the official site is still in Indonesian.
The company’s software has been criticized by some players for having a weak random number generator. There have also been allegations of insider cheating. This is when a player, without the knowledge of the site’s managers, attempts to manipulate the game’s outcome. In fact, there are more than 600 independent doorways into poker networks. However, most networks have not been able to detect the traffic levels of these.
The IDNPlay network opened its doors in 2010. Its success has been attributed to an aggressive marketing campaign in the local market. It has also had a buggy platform and has a relatively poor reputation among players. Its website is translated into English, but its success in the Western market is unclear.
In the last few years, the IDNPlay network has seen its ranking in PokerScout rise from fourth to second. The network has also been featured in gaming conferences in Asia and has hosted charity events in the region.
