IDN Play Poker Network Review

IDN Play is a poker network that has recently overtaken 888poker in terms of traffic. The network offers a large selection of games including Chinese Poker variants like Capsa Susun and other domino games. Besides the standard Texas Holdem and Omaha variants, IDN Play also caters to Asian grinders with a large choice of other games such as Q-Kick and CEME. The network is licensed in the Philippines by the Offshore Gaming Licensing Department and has a Random Number Generator certificate from bmm Testlabs.

Complexity is an aspect of interactive digital narratives that warrants scholarly attention, particularly how it is handled within IDN. The problem space highlighted by this paper includes the need for scholarly attention to IDN design (approach, methods and building blocks), evaluation to verify effectiveness, professional training of creators and education of school-age children.

This article uses secondary analysis of IDN designs and player reflections to understand novice authors’ composing processes. It explores how they use and develop narrative elements, like character and choice poetics, to create multiple story trajectories for player engagement. This hermeneutic engagement can be understood as a transformation in the interactor as they traverse different perspectives in a single session.

IDNPlay is one of the most popular poker networks in Asia and has a lot of players at all times of the day. According to PokerScout, on a weekly average there are over 6,000 connections and at peak hours there can be as many as 12,000 players. The IDNPlay client is minimalist and does not feature any advanced features, but it’s suitable for those who want to focus on playing poker without any distractions. Moreover, the network does not have any VIP or Rakeback program for international players. Nevertheless, they give a generous welcome bonus of up to 20,000 IDR, which can be released only if the player makes a minimum deposit.
