IGT network (common referred to as "Entraction") was so named after Entraction was taken over in June 2011 by Nevada based slot and gaming manufacturer International Game Technology for $115 million. The network is home to some great poker rooms including iGame, redbet, 24hpoker and Point Poker.
Entraction and all its skins hold a license within the EU (Malta) which means they are tax-free in most jurisdictions. Besides poker, most of the skins also offer two different casinos (IGT and Netent) as well as sportsbetting and sometimes bingo.
Entraction Network Traffic
Entraction often have over 5,000 players online with over a thousand cash game players competing at peak times and is currently the 6th largest open poker network. Although not among the top sites for traffic, Entraction still offer a decent player base and there are always decent games running.
Entraction Rakeback and Bonuses
Entraction have a solid and 'relatively' simple to grasp loyalty program. As well as "base points" (standard VIP points accumulated as previously shown at a rate of 1 point per 50c raked) you also accumulate Loyalty Points (LP's) which are initially earned at the same rate as base points (BP's) but as you gather more points you will reach higher loyalty levels (ie: at 100 LP's you reach level 2) and at each new level your "LP's" are accumlated quicker (ie: at level two 50c rake = 1.2 LP's). The higher the level, the greater the multiplier and the more points rewarded. You can exchange LP's for cash at any time and once again, the higher the level the more cash you get per LP (ie: for 60 LP's at Level 1 you can exchange for €3 whereas for 600 LP's at Level 4 you can claim €35).
Rakeback deals for the Entraction Network sites are readily available with 30% rakeback on offer. There are also great rake races running on a monthly basis throughout the network and on individual rooms.
Entraction Network Game Variants and Stakes
As you would expect on a major poker network pretty much all the chief variants of poker are available in cash game format including Hold'Em, Omaha, Omaha Hi Low, Stud and Draw games all on offer. Entraction also offer unusual variants including Soko, Telesina and Americana. You can play from micro stakes (€0.02/€0.04) up to high stakes, although anything beyond €50/€100 is unlikely and even those are rare.
