Pokerdom Review

Author

Pokerdom is a small but ambitious poker site launched in 2014 with the active participation of the Russian poker community. Pokerdom distinguished itself from large foreign rooms, positioning itself as a space for fair, understandable, and comfortable games for clients from Russia, Belarus, and Kazakhstan. However, it welcomes players from other geographical locations as well, so you can enjoy playing against amateurs from Russian-speaking countries.

Poker dom offers some pleasant surprises, such as freerolls with guarantees up to ₽30,000, lottery SNGs with prizes up to ₽800,000, mega-affordable cash stakes from ₽1/2, unlimited withdrawals from ₽1,00, and round-the-clock support.

Novice regulars will also like its soft field, up to 67% rakeback, a grid of satellites for tournaments with guarantees up to ₽3,300,000, and qualifiers for Russian offline poker events.

Worldpokerdeals has prepared a detailed review of the poker room, which will help you understand the details of Pokerdom and decide if it is right for you. In this article, you will learn:

  • What are the fundamental differences between Pokerdom and dozens of other providers.
  • Is it worth making it the main site for grinding.
  • Which disciplines are trending?
  • Is it profitable to play at Poker dom?

Please note that Pokerdom operates only in Russian rubles; therefore, we will use this currency throughout this review (in June 2023, $1 = ₽82).

Bonuses and promotions

The Pokerdom poker promotion policy has an emphasis on retaining active players. The room includes free qualifiers for the Kaliningrad Cup live events in the Yantarnaya gambling zone (guarantees from ₽1,500,000 to ₽3,500,000) and the annual Russian Championship. Online ticket giveaways are also offered during streams and for the most active users on social networks.

Rake

Pokerdom charges a low rake across all disciplines. However, it is roughly on the same level as competitors. The rake used the “contributed” system according to the “no flop, no drop” scheme. It is 5% or ₽0.01 for each ₽0.20 in the pot.

The maximum rake is limited by a cap, which is tied to the bet level.

Pineapple (Chinese Poker) tables have a 5% commission. The rake is taken at the end of each hand and is capped to ₽1,500.

The room commission in MTT is 10%, regardless of the buy-in.

Rakeback at Pokerdom

Pokerdom Freebies

The Russian poker site decided to not put its users in front of a choice, as others do and offers two versions of the rakeback program at the same time.

  • "100 Steps to a Million" with instant prizes up to ₽1,000,000.
  • Time Machine is a classic multi-level rakeback program with a progressive return system from 12% to 67%.

As you might have guessed from the name, we are talking about a hundred-level motivation system with a maximum profit of one million. For each ₽1 in commission, the player gets 1 rake point.

After reaching the maximum level, the user receives a guaranteed ticket to the Sochi Poker Festival Main Event for $550 and a 25% rakeback.

Time Machine

Time Machine is a more promising RB scheme for beginner pros. It implies rakeback from 12% to 67% and consists of eight levels. It is necessary to accumulate a given amount of rake in 30 days to reach these statuses. When moving to the next level, the player gets a higher return, plus they receive a bonus RB in the coming month.

Pokerdom allows switching VIP programs. To do this, enter TIMEMACHINE or ONEHUNDRED in the promotional code field.

The Pokerdom VIP program includes a mission system. Every day, players receive simple, periodically changing tasks. For example, you can receive rewards such as tickets or cash for collecting a particular hand.

To summarize:

A flexible VIP program with instant cash or rakeback up to 67% is a strong argument for Pokerdom Poker in its fight against the market leaders. However, the most crucial disadvantage of the local promotion system is the absence of a first deposit bonus, which is an essential factor that persuades potential users to choose a particular room.

Pokerdom Bad Beat Jackpot

Pokerdom Bad Beat Jackpot

You can get a big prize at Pokerdom for losing with a super-strong hand in the famous Bad Beat Jackpot.

A Bad Beat is when a great hand (like four of a kind) loses against a stronger one. When this happens, the jackpot is triggered and awards prizes as follows:

  1. 30% for the loser of the and;
  2. 20% for the winner;
  3. 20% to fund the next jackpot;
  4. 10% is equally distributed among all the players who were playing at the moment at other jackpot tables.
  5. The 10% remaining is a commission fee.

It’s important to note that the jackpot size depends on the stake. For example, at the 25/50₽ tables, players receive 100% of the amount, but at 1/2₽ is 25% of the jackpot prize pool.

Bad Beat Jackpot tables are tagged with a “J” in the lobby, and an extra 0,5% fee is charged to feed the prize pool, capped at 10 rubles.

Games and traffic

Pokerdom Cash Lobby New

Pokerdom deliberately chose to target amateur players, which led to a logical outflow of regulars. As a result, daily traffic is relatively low, with up to 4000 users at peak and 900 on average, which enables the site to fight for a spot in the TOP10.

Cash Games: Hold’em, Omaha, Fast-Fold

Pokerdom can compete with rooms like 888Poker or partypoker in terms of cash players. However, most of the traffic corresponds to Boost (fast-fold poker). There is action around the clock at three stakes (₽1/2, ₽5/10, ₽25/50) with over 400 connections. During promotions and weekends, high stakes action can be spotted.

Regular NLH tables are played in 6-max and 8-max format at stakes from ₽1/2, ₽2.5/5, ₽5/10, ₽10/20, but during the weekend up to 250/500.

Omaha is played only in PLO5 and PLO6 formats: 20-30 tables are played from 1/2 to 50/100, and 2-3 tables up to 1000/2000.

Tournaments at Pokerdom (MTT)

The grid allows you to choose a tournament for any preference and bankroll size in all disciplines such as Hold'em, Omaha, and Pineapple. Pokerdom offers 2, 3, 6, 8-max knockouts and rebuys, different blind structures, Boost, and anonymous options in all formats. Buy-ins at are affordable, ranging from ₽25 to ₽10,000.

Tournaments worth paying particular attention to:

  • New Hope, ₽900,000 guarantee for ₽3,000
  • Phoenix Megastack, ₽700,000 for ₽1,000

Windfall Spins

Pokerdom Widfall Spins Lobby New

Spins are 2- and 3-max Sit-and-Go with a random prize pool. Pokerdom Windfalls are among the cheapest on the market and are generally more attractive than many competitors.

Things to highlight about Winfall Spins:

  • 2 formats and 2 disciplines - heads-up and 3-max, Hold'em and Chinese poker;
  • Blind structure - 2 minutes in HU and 3 minutes at 3-max;
  • Multipliers - from x1.5 to x100;

Factors like minimum stakes from ₽1 / 2 in cash, Chinese poker, 10 stakes of lottery SNGs in two disciplines, and freebuys for live tournaments highlight that Pokerdom has worked out the grid of games and tournaments just perfectly. The only serious drawback is the relatively low online traffic of the room and lack of serious action during off-peak times.

Field softness

We should pay tribute to Pokerdom, as the poker room did not take a neutral position and openly declares its support for amateurs at the expense of those who use PRO software. Moreover, comfortable conditions for non-professionals and playing without auxiliary programs is the basis of the Green Poker concept developed by Poker dom.

As a result, the local field is much softer than you would expect on the market.

Ambassadors

Official representatives of Pokerdom are completely non-public, and it may seem that they simply do not exist. Unfortunately, it is true: as of the first half of 2021, the room does not cooperate with any poker celebrities.

Attitude towards professional players

  • Tracking software - no.
  • Pre-flop chart - no.
  • Bumhunt - no.
  • Mining - no.
  • Seating scripts - no.

The Pokerdom management understands that the core of the room is formed by beginner pros who are trying to make poker their primary source of income. Therefore, PD tries to retain such players but simultaneously tries to make its site attractive for those who come to spend a few hours solely for fun.

In August 2020, Pokerdom introduced additional measures to prevent the exploitation of inexperienced users. The main things to know about the game rules for using software in 2021:

  • It is not recommended to use VPN to run the game client without the approval of Pokerdom's online support service.
  • Holdem Manager (HM2), Poker Tracker (PT), Hand2Note (H2N), converters, calculators, and any other auxiliary software are strictly prohibited.
  • Using other programs working with other poker rooms is not allowed.
  • Player statistics are not available.
  • You cannot hold the table while not playing.
  • To re-enter the sit-out, it is necessary to conduct an active session.
  • It is forbidden to leave the game for specific users selectively.

Of course, multi-accounting, ghosting, chip dumping, and team play are strictly prohibited.

Pokerdom Poker is loyal towards amateurs and beginners. In their eyes, the rules and features of the ecosystem will seem logical, and the room itself is an ideal place to have fun while playing poker. PRO players will have to accept the rules and play without software.

Pokerdom software

Pokerdom New Table Ru

The official website, desktop client, and mobile application for Poker dom were created by the Connective Games studio, a well-known company in the industry. Overall, the software is similar compared to other sites using the same platform.

The design is minimalistic, with the same logical arrangement of tabs, convenient functionality, and simple navigation. The main difference between the software is the color scheme. Pokerdom is designed in black and green.

As we mentioned above, all third-party software is prohibited at Pokerdom. But how can players view their hand history?

To do this, you need to click on the "Settings-Video History" buttons in the room client or directly at a table. And for Hand History to be saved, in the "Additional settings-History" menu, check the box and select how many days from the moment of wagering the hand will be available (maximum - 999 days).
