iPoker Network Review

To find out if iPoker is the best option for you, we recommend reading the entire review. However, if you already know that this is where you want to play, you can start playing on the iPoker network today by clicking the banner below:

The iPoker network used to be the largest true online poker network, featuring some of the best online poker rooms. Although the 888 Poker network, Poker Stars network, and Party Poker network have always been larger, they are not true poker networks since all sites on each network are owned and operated by the same company. However, iPoker are no longer the largest true poker network, with both the Microgaming Poker Network and Winning Poker Network surpassing them in overall traffic.

Since many of the iPoker skins are used by online casinos and sportsbooks, this network attracts plenty of fish Click to Tweet

iPoker software quality is decent, with good graphics, but the navigation can be annoying due to excessive grouping. The “favorites” option is nice; it allows players to bookmark their favorite poker cash games and tournaments.

Rake & Rakeback with iPoker

iPoker rooms used to offer some of the best rakeback deals available online. They then stopped offering traditional rakeback, and instead just offered loyalty rewards (which is just rakeback by a different name). However, all iPoker sites have since slashed their loyalty rewards, resulting in significantly less equivalent rakeback for their players.

This considerable reduction in iPoker rakeback rewards is compounded by the fact that iPoker rake is one of the highest online.

iPoker network sites offer a decent selection of games for heads-up and 6-handed play and are one of the best options for heads-up play from €2/€4 to €5/€10. For full table play, iPoker skins only offer micro-stakes No Limit Hold'em. If you prefer to play full table cash games, we recommend either True Poker or PokerStars.

For fast games, check out iPoker's Speed tables, which are only available for 6-handed NL Hold'em and deal up to 160 hands/hour.

Most iPoker sites are owned by sportsbooks and bettors who play poker recreationally tend to be weaker. Click to Tweet

iPoker cash games are pretty soft. Start beating up on weak cash game players today by clicking the banner below:

However, iPoker rake is very high (frequently the highest of all networks we've reviewed at each stake level). The only games for which their rake structure is competitive is €2/€4 to €5/€10 heads-up play. Combine this with the fact that they have slashed their poker loyalty rewards program and you can see why we recommend most cash game players play elsewhere.

iPoker Tournaments

Most iPoker tournaments have a guaranteed prize pool. Although they get a high number of entrants (typically more than a hundred), the number is not so high as to create ridiculously top heavy payouts. As a result, the variance in your results is reasonable. iPoker Tournament entry fees are competitive with the rest of the industry for all buy-ins.

The best iPoker skin for freerolls is William Hill, which you can download by clicking on the banner below:

However, since iPoker dramatically slashed their rewards program, you are probably better off playing tournament poker on another poker site. Casual players who enjoy playing freerolls should download bwin by clicking on the banner below:

If you do not typically play freeroll poker tournaments or do, but generate more than $1,000/year in rake and fees, then we recommend you download Americas Cardroom by clicking on the banner below:

iPoker SNG Tournaments

 
Sit & Go (SNG) Formats:
  Single Table (ST)
  Multi-Table (MT)
  Jackpot (JP)
  Double or Nothing (D/N)
 
Active SNGs (Full Table):
  NL Hold'em (MT)   €0.50
  NL Hold'em (ST)   €0.10 - €5
  NL Hold'em (JP)   €5
 
Active SNGs (6-Handed):
  NL Hold'em (MT)   €10 
  NL Hold'em (ST)   €0.10 - €50
  NL Hold'em (JP)   €20 & €40
  NL Hold'em (D/N)   €0.10 - €20
 
Active SNGs (Heads-Up):
  NL Hold'em (ST)   €0.50 - €5,000
  FL Hold'em (ST)   €5 - €100

The iPoker network offers plenty of options for players who enjoy poker sit and go tournaments, and are the only network that offers jackpot SNGs.

iPoker's Jackpot SNGs allow players to win a large sum with little investment by winning several consecutive events. Click to Tweet

Players can also play Double or Nothing tournaments, although only for 6-handed No Limit Hold'em. 

However, iPoker's rewards for sit and go poker are truly terrible. In fact, their rewards are amongst the worst available online for full table and short-handed SNGs, and are below average at best for heads-up. If you still want to play sit and go's on the iPoker network, then we recommend you download Boylesports Poker by clicking the banner below:

download boylepokerPlease disable Ad-Block on this site if you are unable to see the above banner.

Boylesports offer slightly better rewards for SNG poker players than the other iPoker skins, but it's still pretty terrible. Our top picks for sit-and-go poker are TruePoker for full table SNGs, Full Tilt Poker for short-handed sit & go's, and for heads-up SNGs we suggest you download PokerStars.
