Natural8: A poker room friendly with Asian countries

Natural8 positions itself as Asia's largest online poker room, so in this article, we will focus mostly on countries from this region. We highlight that you are welcome to the Natural 8 tables from the following countries:

  • China
  • Indonesia
  • Thailand
  • Hong Kong
  • India
  • Japan
  • Malaysia
  • Vietnam
  • Taiwan
  • Singapore

Besides Asian countries, Natural 8 accepts worldwide players with few restrictions (scroll down to find out a complete list), mostly sites with an unstable political situation or strong regulations. 

Natural8 is a full-fledged member of GGNetwork, and it shares traffic with GGPoker and other global skins. In other words, this means you will get access to a global pool to play.

In-depth knowledge of the Asian gambling market perks is perhaps one reason for the massive success that N8 and GGNetwork have reached. In late 2020, the site ranks third in the PokerScout list, only behind PokerStars and IDNPoker, boasting over 6000 cash players and almost 150,000 connections.

Cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, for example), WeChat Pay, and Alipay are the preferred payment option for players from Asian countries. However, we would like to add that more local payment methods may appear in the cashier after verifying your account with documents.

Important!: Considering the nuances of online gambling in this region, Natural8 has partnered with local payment solutions providers or "agents" that processes deposits and withdrawals via bank accounts in countries like Hong Kong, Singapore, or Malaysia. We recommend you to reach the live-chat on the Natural 8 website to get more information.
