Traffic and Games:
Though Pokerking does not accept US traffic, American players comprise the majority of WPN’s traffic. All games run in USD and traffic peaks during North American evenings and weekends. Recreational players are common on Winning, and one or two weaker players per table is the standard.
Traffic at NLHE microstakes is decent at peak times, with 5 tables at each stake from NL2 to NL25 (roughly 4 6max and 1 full ring games). Lowstakes traffic is also decent, with about 8 games of NL50 and 4 games of NL100 running at peak hours. PLO microstakes traffic is poor, with 1-2 games running at PLO5, PLO10 and PLO25. Traffic picks up around PLO50 where we observed 4 games running at peak times, with another 5 games at PLO100, 2-3 games of PLO200 and PLO400 and even some action up to PLO1k. Unfortunately, a significant portion of the PLO and NLHE higher stakes traffic at WPN is at cap tables. For more information about traffic on WPN we invite you to view our traffic reports forSeptember, October and November.
WPN offers a number of excellent MTTs as well. In addition to the weekly 50k GTD and 20k GTD High Roller tournaments, there are smaller tournaments running daily that often have significant overlays. Worth particular mention is the upcoming $1million guaranteed “Winning Millions” tournament on February 22nd, 2015 which you can find more about here. In contrast to the MTT traffic SNG traffic is quite sparse, though Turbo and Double-or-Nothing SNGs run at lower stakes.
Software and Tracking:
We enjoyed using WPN’s poker client. Games run smoothly and all expected features are present. Tables are attractive and visually customizable, and can be scaled and tiled for comfortable multitabling. The lobby is attractive and easily filtered for games that fit your preferences with a wide variety of advanced filters.
Finally, the software is natively supported by Hold’em Manager and Pokertracker so your HUD and tracking software will work without issue.
Cashier and Payment Options:
Most standard payment options are available on Pokerking. Credit Card, Skrill, Neteller, UKash and Mastercard Securecode are available for deposit. Agent transfer is easily arranged for deposit and withdrawal and deposits are equally quick and easy through Skrill and Neteller.
Rake Structure and Rakeback:
|Stakes||Rake||2 player cap||3 player cap||4-5 player cap||6-9 player cap|
|NL400, NL600 and NL800||5%||$1.00||$1.50||$2.00||$3.00|
Rake Structure at Pokerking.
Rake at Pokerking follows the structure above and is calculated using the Fair Distribution Method. Compared to the weighted contributed method, this method reallocates rake so that recreational players receive a larger portion of the rake paid and winning players receive a smaller portion.
|Deposit Amount ($USD)||Match Bonus||Cash Bonus ($USD)|
|$200 – $300||100%||$15|
|$300 – $400||100%||$20|
|$400 – $500||100%||$25|
|$500 – $777||100%||$50|
Pokerking First Deposit Bonus Structure.
Pokerking offers a 100% up to $777 deposit bonus plus a cash bonus depending on the deposit amount. Please note that players will need to rake roughly the amount of the cash bonus before withdrawing it. The bonus clears at a rate of $2 for every 45 Status Points earned and Status Points are earned at a rate of 6 Status Points for every $1.00 paid in rake or tournament fees. Thus, the FDB is worth roughly 27% in effective Pokerking Rakeback.
Monthly Rake Achieved (USD):
|$333 (Silver tier – 2000 SP)||15%|
|$833.3 (Gold tier – 5000 SP)||20%|
|$1666.66 (Platinum tier – 10000 SP)||30%|
|$3333.33 and up (Royal – 20000 SP)||40%|
Rakeback at Pokerking is based on volume and you can earn up to 40%.
Players earn rakeback according to their monthly volume as outlined in the table above. Players achieve each tier by earning the required number of Status Points (SP) in a Calendar month. In order to maintain that status level in subsequent months players must rake half of that amount in future months.
Players on Pokerking are also eligible for our $10k Winter Battle *Reloaded Rake Race. The top prize is a whopping $1,500 and 30 places are paid. For more information, please view our official announcement here. Finally, players will also be eligible for our VIP-Grinders Loyalty Rewards and our new VIP-Grinders Rewards program.

Pokerking is a solid and reliable choice for players who rake enough to accomplish the higher tiers of the rakeback program and who prefer to play at US peak times. Traffic on Winning Poker Network isn’t particularly high, but a substantial portion of the player base are recreational players and weaker regulars and there’s enough traffic for several tables per stake from micro to midstakes. SNG traffic is poor, though MTT players will enjoy the decent number of high guarantee tournaments. The software is good, payment is reliable and the ceiling for rakeback earnings is good.
