PokerFishes Review

PokerFishes is a game hosting platform launched in 2019 to compete in the poker apps market. There is not much information available about the PokerFishes team. According to the RNG certificate displayed in the app, they use a white-label poker solution from the Indian developer Grandtrine Entertainment Pvt. Ltd, but we were unable to verify if they were linked somehow.

However, their customer service sends us a promo link of the Grandtrine services after chatting with them. PokerFishes is recruiting a team to expand globally. Their strategy is to offer their service 70% less expensive than any other application.

In this comprehensive review, we will check all the PokerFishes app details like their client and game offer.

Rakeback and promotions

As of February 2021, we don't grant access to any PokerFishes club, and we have identified no major affiliates working with them. Therefore, for grinders looking for the best rakeback deals and the fishiest clubs, we recommend checking our club-based apps deal, including several apps like PPPoker and underground sites.

Rake structure

We found nothing unusual in the PokerFishes rake structure; the game host can choose from 1% to 5% and different caps.

Games and traffic

Poker Fishes Lobby

Club administrators can choose from a wide selection to create new games. However, only cash games are available. MTTs are promised to be available later.

  • NLH
  • 6+ Hold'em
  • PLO (4, 5, and 6 cards)
  • Teenpatti

There is an option to access free games, but the lobby is always empty.

Banking options

As usual, the PokerFishes terms and conditions state that "You are not allowed to transfer Virtual Items outside of the services (e.g., in the "real world"), for example by selling, gifting, or trading them." In other words, they act as a play-money platform.

In-app purchases are available to get diamonds and VIP cards, which enable features like Rabbit Hunting, reports, emojis, and more time bank.

Reliability and trustworthiness

PokerFishes displays an RNG certificate issued by iTech Labs to Grandtrine Entertainment in 2017. The client includes IP and GPS restrictions to prevent colluders and other cheats. However, that's the only information we found to back the app's reliability.

There is no information about the team behind the app, and we don't know any trusted agents working with PokerFishes clubs. We recommend our grinders join safe clubs on sites like Kingsclubpkr or PPPoker.

Although PokerFishes seems to be a legit platform to play, the lack of clubs and agents motivates us to recommend players to other rooms.

Attitude towards pro players

Although the game hosts will be eventually responsible for setting the rules towards balancing the gaming field, we highlight the following features that might help that objective:

  • Anonymous games
  • Run It Multi-times
  • Hide hand history
  • Straddle
  • Ban chatting
  • Minimum VPIP

If PokerFishes became popular, the clubs would have all the tools to warmly welcomes regs or restrict them at the tables.

Customer service

PokerFishes customer service is available at:

  • Whatsapp: +1 (332) 228-1680, prompt answer, available in Indian business hours.
  • E-mail: [email protected], e-mail bounce
  • Facebook: standard answer

We highlight that after creating our test club, a PokerFishes representative reached us via Whatsapp to explain the app's features.

PokerFishes Software Review

PokerFishes Table

We were able to download the PokerFishes client to iOS and Android devices directly from the stores without the need to install any extra profiles. To create an account, you'll need to supply only an e-mail and a phone (optional). After logging in, you will see the standard structure of any popular app:

  1. Main lobby with all clubs and tables
  2. Store (diamonds, cards)
  3. Career (game statistics including VPIP, PFR, 3-bet, fold to 3-bet, WTSD)
  4. Profile

There are several customization options like different cards and table themes. The emojis used in the app are similar to those implemented by GGPoker.

Overall the client is user-friendly, and during our tests, we experienced no lags.

Summary: pros and cons

We highlight the following benefits of the site:

  • Well-designed platform.
  • Valid RNG certificate

The dark side:

  • No traffic
  • No trusted agents working with them.

PokerFishes is another club-based app platform looking to triumph in a very competitive market. The site is doing a decent job in promoting its app, but it needs to develop a global network of clubs and agents to get a spot to fight older sites.
