The iPoker network will be making significant changes supposedly designed to keep the software in line with current market trends and make a better and simpler poker offering. They are also making changes in light of the growing popularity of the mobile poker market.
The US dollar currency will be phased out, leaving the stronger Euro and British Pound as the preferred currencies on the network. Most of iPoker’s network partners are based in Europe and in the UK, so it would make sense for them to adopt this. This phase out includes cash and tournament action at iPoker.
The network will be condensing the lobby offerings in order to make games fast and easy to find. They will be reducing the game selection with the intent to “condense their offering by having less negligible sitting options, but in a way that will allow them to keep all games variants.”
The range of stakes available will also be reduced “to protect less skilled players that tend to lose their money.” iPoker has analyzed the loss per player for every stake and are using this analysis to determine which stakes to remove.
The network will also be taking measures designed to help protect player funds and allow them a longer playing time for their deposit.
There is no timeline mentioned for when these changes are expected to roll out.
