If you ask a casual poker player what networks there are he might answer: iPoker, Ongame, Boss Media and Cake. Only rarely you will hear Entraction, formerly known as B2B network. But why? There’s not a single good reason for that! Entraction is as big as Boss Media and Cake Network. Sure, it’s smaller than iPoker but they all are. We took a closer look at Entraction Poker and searched for reasons why it’s not as popular as other networks.
First of all the most important factor: traffic. If there’s no traffic nobody wants to play there. Entraction belongs to the 10 biggest poker sites so there’s indeed enough traffic. You can compare it with Boss Media and Cake. At those networks there’s similar traffic. But traffic is relative. If you play full ring fixed limit hold’em games there’s not much traffic at Entraction. But if you’re a shorthanded no limit hold’em player there’s enough traffic for you. But there are a lot of losing players at Entraction from which you can make some money.
The software is very clean and fast. No annoying avaters. The tables are resizable which is perfect for multitabling. Also a great advantage is that you can play poker in your browser, so called browser poker. Especially for casual players it’s a big plus because they don’t have to download any software.
The rakeback situation at Entraction is very strict. The maximum you can get is 30 % through affiliate websites. You can’t get more and almost nobody pays less than 30 %. So it’s strictly regulated and causes no network problems. The rakeback situation is way tougher and all the skins fight with very complex loyalty programs which is very confusing. So ipoker rakeback is way more difficult than Entraction rakeback.
Overall Entraction (B2B Poker) is a very nice network that deserves more attention. It’s comparable to Boss Media, Microgaming and Cake but in my opinion it has more advantages (browser poker, strict rakeback, bankroll in Euro, bad players and so on).
