PokerKing Review

As a member of the World Poker Network (WPN), the main poker network in the US market, PokerKingis currently a room with a high growth of players, mainly European, so it has increased its offer of games and promotions to position itself among the best options in the market.

While PokerKing does not support US-based players, as part of the WPN it does share traffic from other WPN rooms.

The room offers a wide variety of both regular cash game and tournament games, with games running 24 hours a day to suit the tastes and demands of all types of players.

PokerKing also offers a wide range of casino and sports betting games for those who like to mix the action of poker with other games that are now popular on all other platforms.

Game Integrity at PokerKing

As for the integrity of the game PokerKing provides, the room is RNG certified by iTech Labs, the regulator of the RNG (Random Number Generator), which is the random system by which the cards are dealt in the room and with which the WPN network guarantees the legitimacy of its games.

In addition, the tables at PokerKing are monitored by teams of analytical experts, looking for any irregular play in order to prevent collusion or the use of bots. The system also prevents players sharing the same IP from overlapping at the tables and the identity of each real-money player is verified.

PokerKing software

The PokerKing platform is developed and updated by IGSoft, a sister company of King Enterprises N.V.

In 2019 they rolled out a major software update, and the site switched to a new engine, which made it more flexible to add new games and formats.

After launching the client, the NLH free tables lobby opens by default. The main navigation buttons are located between the list of games and the PokerKing logo. These can be divided into three sections:

Top (blue buttons) – games, access to Hold’em, Omaha, Blitz Poker, tournaments, etc.
Medium (black buttons) – filters by different bet types (no limit, pot limit), tournament type and buy-in, etc.
Low – list of games.
You can sort tables by the number of seats, limit, average pot, player/jackpot ratio, or in the case of tournaments, event name, buy-in, state, or level.

The rightmost part provides access to a preview, the cashier, and advanced filters, which allow grinders to make a more optimal search.

PokerKing’s tables have a standard structure, but, unlike other poker rooms, they can be resized with a different ratio, which is convenient for joining games from special gadgets or monitors.

In the settings section (gear button), you can customise the appearance of the tables, among other useful tools such as changing the betting bar or selecting a four-colour deck.

PokerKing trafficking

PokerKing belongs to a TOP10 poker network in terms of traffic. This means that grinders can find tables at almost any time. However, the peak of traffic is at night in America. In European hours, traffic is 15%-20% less.
pokerking games

The PokerKing grid includes tournaments for any poker player. There are modern spins, classic sit and goes (in HU, 6-max, and 9-max formats) and a large MTT offering.

The spins at PokerKing are called Jackpots and are available in four levels: $1, $10, $25, and $50, and two in Omaha, $2 and $10.

Regular SnGs are mostly played at levels from $1.55 to $40, both with regular and turbo blind structure.

The MTTs at the venue have a permanent grid, which is based on regular events with buy-ins from $1,1 to $1,050. The daily events can be divided into two groups:

The Big 10 – exactly 10 tournaments with buy-ins from $3.3 to $109, and guaranteed prizes from $300 to $2,000;
Turbo 10 – 10 events with entries from $2.2 to $34 and GTD prizes up to $2,000.
Of course, the biggest events are played on weekends, where three tournaments are highlighted:

$150,000 GTD Warm-up, $109;
$200,000 GTD, $1,050;
$125,00 GTD, $215.
Almost all events have unlimited re-entries available during the late registration period. In January 2020 the poker room started testing single re-entry “Double Chance” tournaments.

During the year WPN holds the Cub3d Online Super Series several times, an event with tournaments for all players, and a total guaranteed prize pool of over $10 million. The Venom remains the largest tournament the Winning Poker network has ever hosted; the last edition was played in November 2019 and had a prize pool of $6,740,000.

100% first deposit bonus up to $2,000;

| pokerking

PokerKing offers a 100% first deposit bonus up to $2,000. The minimum deposit is $25.

The player has 60 days to release the bonus; the FBD is paid in increments of $1 for every 27.5 Status Points (equals 20% rakeback, 5.5 SP = $1 rake).

PokerKing Royal Club Benefits

Royal Club is very similar to the classic loyalty system that PokerStars had until 2016. When playing in the room, grinders receive Status Points, 5.5SP = $1 rake.

The rewards programme is divided into six tiers: the first four are monthly, and the last two are annual. The main difference is the rate at which Royalty Points are earned. These points can be exchanged for cash (rakeback).

Poker rake calculation

As compensation for hosting online poker games, we take what is known as “rake” from each pot. We have a “no flop, no drop” policy. Rake is defined in the table below:
