Almost a decade ago, Chris Moneymaker became the first American to win a World Series of Poker (WSOP) main event. He beat out a field that was three times as large as the previous year. He won the tournament through an online card room, rather than the traditional live card room.
Chris’s victory shocked the poker world. It also caused a surge in online idn play traffic. However, it has left the majority of live gaming houses worldwide closed. This is attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, there are more than 600 independent doorways into poker networks. The majority of online poker traffic is generated by a few networks.
In Asia, IDNPoker is the largest and most popular poker network. It started out in Cambodia and then expanded to Indonesia, Thailand, and Malaysia. The network holds a gambling license from PAGCOR and a BMM RNG certificate.
IDNPoker is considered to be the leading B2B provider of online gaming platforms. It is headquartered in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines. IDNPoker also has a stand-alone client for mobile devices. It is a major player in the Asian market, and it also operates over 200 skins.
While IDNPoker is considered to be the largest poker network in Asia, there is no information on its success in the Western market. It is thought to have been successful because of an aggressive marketing campaign in the local markets. It has also participated in several gaming conferences and charity events in Asia.
