iPoker Italy is an Italian poker network that is part of the international iPoker network. In terms of traffic, this network is in second place after PokerStars.it. iPoker Italy was launched in 2013. Although European pool opened to all poker players from Europe in 2018, Italian players prefer to play with each other. That is why the iPoker Italy network is currently the weakest lineups.
Attendance and game choice
iPoker Italy peaks in the evening European time. During this period, about 1,500 players gather at the cash tables. Most often they play here No-Limit Hold’em at 6-max tables. 9-max tables are mostly found at micro stakes. Traditionally for the European network, iPoker Italy is played in euros.
At each limit up to NL10, an average of 15-20 tables are collected. Two times less tables will be in the range of limits from NL20 to NL100. At the highest stakes, up to NL1K, on average, there are about 2-3 tables for each limit.
The iPoker Italy review showed that Omaha is not very popular in this network – only 2-5 tables at each limit up to PLO200. The heads-up format with the rules of Hold’em brings together about 10 tables at the limits from NL20 to NL200.
In terms of tournaments, iPoker Italy is dominated by lottery SnGs with buy-ins up to € 50. Multi-table tournaments feature regular events with a large selection of buy-ins. Tickets to the most expensive daily tournaments will cost between 50-100 euros, and the guaranteed prize pool in them reaches 5K euros. The number of participants in such events is small, but their level of play is rather weak.
The iPoker Italy custom client was developed by PlayTech in 2016. The most commonly used game formats are presented in the application lobby, which simplifies the search process. Also in the main lobby you will find the most popular functions and settings – changing the size of the bet, setting the minimum threshold for auto-redemption, setting the time bank. iPoker Italy does not have waiting lists, but you can view the list of players at each table from the lobby.
Thanks to the many filters, you can easily sort games by various parameters. iPoker Italy has a function to save the selected configuration. The appearance of the cards can be changed (there are three options). Unlike most Italian networks, iPoker Italy supports trackers.
Rake and rakeback
The commission at all limits in iPoker Italy is the same and amounts to 5.5%. The cap depends on the limit played and ranges from 1 to 3 euros. Rake in tournaments is included in the ticket price and is 10%. In lottery tournaments, 7% of the commission is deducted.
Rakeback in iPoker Italy depends on which room of the Italian network you are playing in. In some poker rooms the rakeback amount will depend on the current VIP status, in other rooms a fixed cashback is paid. You can get more detailed information about the iPoker Italy loyalty system from our managers.
Deposits and cash-outs in this network can be made using the payment systems Neteller, Skrill and Bitcoin cryptocurrency.
The main advantage of iPoker Italy is the very weak player pool, mainly made up of Italian recreational players. Enough games can be found not only at the low, but also at the medium and even high limits. In heads-up format, there is action at any time. The ability to use trackers without converters will also be a big plus for regulars.
