PPPoker Review: March 2024 Top Clubs and Rakeback Offers
Many countries have imposed restrictions on online gambling, which includes poker. Therefore, classic poker rooms in these countries are blocked by Internet service providers. Some poker players have solved the problem with the help of VPN-services and other ways to bypass the blocking. And some players switched to poker apps, one of which is the subject of this article.
PPPoker is a mobile poker application, which is available for download even in countries where the game of poker for money is prohibited. The thing is that PPPoker and similar applications position themselves as a platform for playing for nominal chips. In reality, however, these chips have a real value, so poker players can legally play for money.
Among all mobile applications PPPoker is the leader both in terms of total traffic and distribution in the world. PPPoker is most popular in the CIS countries and Europe. Players note such advantages as relatively large traffic, a wide range of formats and limits, the ability to find weak fields, as well as good rakeback. At the moment PPPoker is as popular as the largest poker rooms in the world.

? Clubs and agents
In classic rooms all traffic is concentrated in one place and each player has access to all tables and tournaments. In PPPoker and other similar applications the pool is divided into clubs, which in turn are combined into alliances. Clubs are formed based on geolocation, limits played, preferred poker formats and some other factors.
There is no cash desk in mobile applications. Therefore, the player himself cannot neither deposit nor withdraw money from his balance. All transactions are organized by the agent – a kind of intermediary between the club and the player. The agent is also responsible for other issues. So, he selects clubs for players, depending on their preferences. Only via an agent you can make a deposit in a way that is convenient for you. Usually financial transactions are in cryptocurrency or through other p2p transfers.
? Finding a reliable agent
All relationships between agents and players are built only on mutual trust. With the advent of the first mobile applications, there were many unscrupulous agents trying to make money through deception and fraud. That is why it was not uncommon for players to be simply “screwed” after the money was transferred. Today, on the poker applications market there are only large agent companies, which value their reputation and have a large number of clients. PokerProDeals belongs to such companies.
We have been providing agency services for over 5 years. We have built up a large database of reliable and profitable clubs that we recommend to our clients. We also have our own network of clubs. We find the suitable club for each player, where he will find interesting formats of poker on necessary limits. All financial operations carried out by our agents are very fast and safe.
? Safe clubs
Compiling our database of clubs, we have conducted a thorough check. That is why we guarantee that we select for you a reliable club, which would follow the principles of fair and responsible gaming. In addition, we have chosen clubs with enough chip fields, so that the results of your game should be high.
Each club administrator has the right to set his own rakeback. That is why rakeback rate can vary greatly from club to club, usually it’s in the range of 10-40%. Please note that high rakeback is not always a guarantee of favorable playing conditions. The thing is that some clubs may take an additional commission, for example, from the winnings or from the cash-out. As a result of such charges, the meaning of high rakeback is practically lost.
In the database of PokerProDeals collected clubs with the most favorable conditions of the game. Rakeback in them can reach 50%. Also, these clubs do not charge any commissions from their players. To find the right club and know the conditions of the game in it, contact our managers.
? PPPoker Welcome Bonus
At the moment there are two types of welcome bonus in our clubs. All the details associated with these offers, you can find out from our managers.
? PPPoker Rake
As with rakeback, rakeback at PPPoker varies from club to club. However, in most clubs the commission is an average for classic poker rooms – 5%. The rake cap usually depends on the limits, and varies from 3BB to 5BB.
? PPPoker games
PPPoker is on par with the largest poker rooms in the world in terms of the variety of poker disciplines and formats. Here you can find cash games, MTT tournaments, SNGs by Hold’em, Omaha, Hold’em with a short deck, etc. The availability of specific disciplines and formats depends on the specific club and alliance. In poker apps, you don’t get access to all existing games. To see the available cash games and tournaments, you need to join a club and then study the traffic.
Hold’em cash tables are the most popular, but there are also a lot of Pot Limit Omaha games. Low and medium limit tables get the most traffic. There is game around the clock during the week. There are also quite a few clubs that play multi-table tournaments, and in a wide range of limits.
At PPPoker, cash is the most common poker game format. Here you can play Hold’em or Omaha at 6-max, full-ring tables and heads-up. Most of the game is concentrated on NL10-NL50 limits. Omaha is often played in the five-card variety, but PLO4 tables are also easy to find.
If you’re interested in Chinese poker, our agents will have no problem finding you clubs that feature this discipline in a wide variety. Typically, Chinese poker is played in Asian clubs. Shortdeck Hold’em is also popular at PPPoker. Most of all the game is played on low limits. So with the search of cash tables in the clubs of the mobile app you will not have any difficulties.
Fans of the SnG format can easily find such tournaments on PPPoker. Sit-n-Go tournaments are played at 9-max and 6-max tables. There are tournaments with regular and turbo structure. And they are played not only by Hold’em rules, but also by Omaha rules. In case of SтG, unlike cash, only PLO4 is popular, not the 5-card variety.
When PPPoker came out, the PPPoker app was focused solely on cash games with a small addition of SnG tournaments. However, with the increase in traffic, multi-table tournaments with good guaranteed funds of up to $500K began to appear. Today in PPPoker clubs you can find not only classic freezouts, but also re-buy tournaments with a regular structure and progressive bounty. There is a large PPPoker Super Tournament series, in which players of any club can participate.
The average number of online players on PPPoker is 6,000 – 6,500. This value is comparable with the traffic of PokerStars. If we talk about the total traffic of all existing applications, it has already exceeded the traffic of poker rooms. PPPoker is on the first place in terms of traffic among mobile applications.
The PPPoker app is primarily designed to be played via mobile devices. Therefore, even the computer version is similar to the mobile client. Nevertheless, this does not prevent the software from being functional and convenient. The PC version allows you to simultaneously open up to 5 tables from one account.
The application has undergone many changes since its release. It has been gradually improved and improved, and today it is presented at its best. The software works steadily, without glitches and freezes. The navigation is quite clear, and even a novice poker player can figure it out.
As for programs to collect statistics, they are officially banned at PPPoker. Nevertheless, it is possible to collect the status on players using the built-in HUD. However, to do this you will have to buy a “Black Card” for local money – diamonds. You will be able to track VPIP, PFR, 3Bet and some other stats on your opponents.
You can download PPPoker mobile software on Android and iOS devices. Unlike classic rooms, the software is available on Google Play and App Store. But the software for your PC can only be downloaded from the official website PPPoker. Rules of the site prohibit the use of Android emulators on your PC.
Simultaneous play at several tables is possible if you install the application on your computer. In this case, you can open up to 5 tables at a time from one account.
As mentioned above, PPPoker does not have the traditional poker room cashier. All financial transactions are made via agents. The choice of payment systems depends on which agent you work with. Agents with PokerProDeals allow you to make deposits and cash-outs in cryptocurrency (USDT or other crypto, where 1 coin = 1 usd), via Skrill, Neteller, and bank cards. Transactions are completed instantly, no fee is charged.
? Withdrawal of funds
For cash-outs you may use the same payment systems as for deposits. Our agents shall withdraw your funds promptly enough within 2 hours if the request is made in the daytime.
When poker applications first appeared, there were occasional questions about PPPoker’s security. It was not uncommon for agents themselves to “cheat” their customers. There was also unfair play within certain clubs. For example, several people could unite into groups to play together. Other fraudulent and dishonest schemes were also used. Now, such problems have been almost completely eliminated in PPPoker. Players can fully rely on their reliable agents, because unscrupulous middlemen have disappeared from the market of poker applications.
Bot tracking systems ensure that you only play against real, live players and not mindless, calculating programs. A reputable company called Gaming Labs has licensed the application’s MSG. Employees of the support actively monitor the clubs, checking them for compliance with the rules and identifying violators. The largest associations acquire their own security service, which provides additional protection to players from fraud.
However, despite all these security improvements at PPPoker, you still need to be vigilant and careful. Do not do business with little-known, suspicious agents. Don’t try to find clubs on your own, trust all these issues to professionals.
?? PPPoker HUD
Thanks to its own HUD, players will be able to view eight statistics on their opponents. The stats are displayed under each player’s icon. You can use the HUD only for money. To access the stats you will need to buy a VIP card or a Black card. Purchase is done for diamonds, which is the local currency. Diamonds in turn are purchased for real money. The cost of the VIP subscription will cost $ 60, and the Black – 25 dollars per month. Sometimes there are promotions and it is possible to get discounts on the purchase of cards.
? Customer Service
The PPPoker poker app has its own support service. You can get in touch with it by emailing [email protected]. This is where you should go if you have any problems with the app. But if you have any questions regarding clubs, deposits and cash-outs, you need to contact our managers.
✅ Pros and Cons
PPPoker has its advantages and disadvantages. Based on player reviews and our own analysis, we have identified the following positives:
- Comparatively weak field especially in American, Asian and Middle Eastern clubs.
- High attendance, comparable to the most popular poker rooms.
- Rakeback up to 50% and two welcome bonuses.
- Wide range of poker formats and disciplines.
- Wide range of playable limits.
- Availability of computer software which allows to play at several tables.
PPPoker has some disadvantages. The main one is unusual for many poker players organization of the game inside closed clubs. Also, many players do not like the need to conduct financial transactions via intermediaries. For regulars, there will also be a minus – PPPoker prohibits the use of poker trackers, and its own HUD is uninformative and paid.
Given that poker is banned in many countries, playing PPPoker has become the only option to access online poker for local poker players. But even in those locations where poker is allowed, more and more players are choosing mobile apps over classic rooms. This is due to the high traffic, wide choice of disciplines, wide variety of limits, weak fields and favorable playing conditions. Want to play in the PPPoker app as well?
