PPPoker Rakeback Deal and Review
PPPoker Rakeback Deal
You are invited to join PPPoker, the biggest Asian Poker App, where you can play Holdem (NLHE & 6+), Omaha (PLO & PLO5c) and Open Face Chinese Poker (OFC) games up to the highest stakes on the market.
PPPoker is structured in clubs, which can be considered as smaller poker rooms, each of them hosting their own games. Some of the clubs have made partnerships, called unions, and they share the same poker tables.
ItalyPokerDeals is offering a large variety of clubs, with players from different countries. Deals vary from club to club and they are a little bit different from the deals of the standard poker rooms.
Usually, a PPPoker deal has 4 components:
1. rakeback : between 10% - 50%; it is paid on a weekly basis on your poker account or Skrill
2. weekly fee : between 0% - 15%; it is the fee charged by the clubs on a weekly basis; it is applied on profits and rakeback; it is not applied on deposits or if you lose money
3. rebate : between 0% - 15%; it is a percentage of your action bought by the club; this means they charge you this percentage of your winnings or they pay you the same percentage of your loses
4. withdrawal fee : 0%; at the moment we do not charge any withdrawal fee so you will receive 100% of your cashouts.
Another specific notion of PPPoker is the settlement, which represents the accounting sessions between our agency and the clubs we are working with. Settlement is made on a weekly basis and it usually takes a few hours, timeframe during which you can't play because your balance will be taken to our agency. When settlement is done, your balance is returned to your account and you can resume playing.
Because of the way PPPoker network is built, aspects like granting access to clubs, deposits, withdrawals and reporting are manually executed. Because of this reason, at the moment, we do not put small stakes players in PPPoker and minimum deposit accepted for PPPoker is $500 per account.
PPPoker Cashier (Deposit and Withdrawal Methods)
Accepted PPPoker payment methods are:
- Skrill (EUR and USD)
- Neteller (EUR and USD)
- Cryptocurrencies : USDT, BTC (more will be added in the near future).
For depositing, you will send the money to one of our Skrill or Neteller ewallets or BTC addresses and we will credit your PPPoker account. Deposits will be processed within a few minutes up to a few hours.
The minimum amount for deposits is $500 or the equivalent BTC amount. Some clubs might have higher minimum deposit requirements. Please get in touch with our team for more details!
For withdrawing, you inform us the amount you want to cash out, we will witdhraw the money from your PPPoker account and when it is processed, you will receive the amount in your Skrill wallet or BTC address you provide.
Withdrawals are paid in the settlement day only and they must be requested no later than 24 hours before the settlement. For example, in case of a club which has the settlement day on Wednesday, the withdrawal request must be made no later than Tuesday morning. Withdrawal requested after this day will be paid the following week in the settlement day.
PPPoker Traffic and Games Overview
PPPoker belongs to the Asian Poker Apps category and is structured in clubs, therefore the traffic can't be exactly estimated like in a standard poker network.
Some of the clubs have a lot of traffic, offering several hundreds of tables across different varieties of poker (standard holdem, 6 plus holdem, omaha, omaha 5 cards, open face chinese) and games running up to the highest stakes ($25/50). Some very fishy games run in the smaller clubs as well.
Poker Types and Games in PPPoker
In PPPoker App you can play the types of poker from below. Some of the PPPoker clubs are hosting only some of the poker types, please check our clubs list from the top of the page or get in touch with our team for exact details.
- Holdem (NLH) - cash, SNG & MTT
- Omaha (PLO) - 4card & 5card
- Open Face Chinese Poker (POFC)
In case of NLHE, cash games are the most popular and some clubs offer the flash cash tables version, while SNGs and MTTs have lower traffic.
In case of PLO, PPPoker introduced the 5 card version, a game which, in some clubs attracts more players than the standard 4 card PLO. Flash PLO games are also available in some clubs.
POFC is a Chinese Poker variant, played with 52 cards, where players are initially dealt 5 cards and then receive one card at a time, until each of them has a 13 card hand. The goal is to get more points than the opponents, by winning more rows or by earning royalties, but without fouling.

PPPoker Client Versions
PPPoker was designed as a mobile device poker application, offering versions for both iOS and Android devices (which can be downloaded from App Store and Google Play) and also an APK (Android package kit). Besides those, PPPoker offers a downloadable Windows client, being one of the few Asian Poker Apps which offer such version.
From the mobile device apps and Windows client, you can play only 1 PPPoker table at a time.
In order to simultaneously play at several PPPoker tables, you will need several PPPoker accounts and an emulator. An emulator is a software which emulates the interface of a mobile device (smartphone) and offers the option of launching several instances. On each instance of the emulator you can load a different PPPoker account and access a different table. This way, you can multi-table at PPPoker.
