iPoker Network Review
The iPoker network is the largest poker network in the world. The company behind the network is that of PlayTech, which is just so happens to be behind many gambling formats such as sports betting, online casino and bingo sites. Whilst PlayTech has been in operation since 1999, the iPoker network wasn’t formed until 2004 and since then has had mass promotion around the world.
As it currently stands iPoker do not accept players from the US, that being said they still have a massive player portfolio behind them meaning volume of traffic is right up there. The company currently entertain over 60 skins on their network from an array of betting backgrounds including the likes of William Hill, Titan Poker, Paddy Power and Blue Square.
Since its entry into the poker market iPoker has seen many software changes and now provide their users with a safe, unique and player friendly service. The ability to incorporate tracking software such as Holdem Manager and Poker Tracker make it a haven for poker players of all abilities.
iPoker Network Traffic
As they are the largest poker network, you would expect traffic to be high, and it is. Numbers can range between a 7 day average of over 2500 up to a 24 hour peak of over 5000. Weekends are the most popular times where numbers can hit anything up to 8000 at any time resulting in games being at their best.
With the inclusion of so many sportsbooks and casinos on their network, iPoker provides a real mix of player abilities. Off peak hours can often be relatively tough with the majority of players being grinders and bonus seekers. Peak time such as Friday evenings and weekends are the best times to play with the ratio of recreational to better players being much favourable.
iPoker Network Game Selection
A big attraction for so many players to the iPoker Network is the array of games it has on offer. Up to 7 different variants including Texas Holdem, Omaha, Omaha hi-Lo, 7 Card Stud, 7 Card Stud Hi-Lo, Razz and 5 Card Stud are all available. It is worth mentioning however, that not all games get a lot of traffic. The less popular formats such as your stud and razz games receive very little off peak traffic and it’s only at peak times where games really come alive.
The tournament scene at iPoker is really buzzing with around the clock games being run. Their guaranteed MTT’s often bring in a nice balance of prize money and player numbers allowing for completion to be in a reasonable timescale.
iPoker Network Promotions
As with the majority of online poker networks most promotions in terms of deposit bonuses or rakeback deals are skin dependent; iPoker is no different. Network wide their biggest promotion probably comes in form of the ever popular ECOOP (European Championship of Online Poker) series where over $4 million in prize money is guaranteed over a host of tournaments. You can also find satellite entries for some the biggest UK live events such as GUKPT grand finals and the Irish Open. On top of this every Sunday iPoker run the ‘Sunday Bash’ which is a $100+9 buy in tournament with a guarteed prize pool over $200,000. There are also a host of leader boards that you can win for a share of $760,000 by simply playing as many hands as possible. Depending on which stakes you play will depend on which level you will qualify in terms of leader boards.
