Which online poker networks will be the most popular in 2021?

There are many poker networks around today, with each having pros and cons, and some being more suitable for this or that player depending on which type of games people favour. Rakeback, number of active players, promotions and limits are just a few points on which networks can differ.

At YourPokerDream we have made playing online poker easy for you. We have taken the most well-known poker networks, come up with some useful comparisons and provided a detailed overview of the relevant factors that help find the best places for poker players to get the most out of the game.

Party/Bwin Network


PartyPoker and Bwin have been building a network for many years, with considerable success. Whatever your poker needs, you’ll be well looked after, with No Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha cash games, Sit & Go Tournaments and the best in Multi-Table Tournaments all in abundance, and typical 24/7 Party/Bwin network fare.

There is something for every budget and bankroll, from the micro limits where it’s possible to play for pennies, right up to the high roller tables. Because there are players from around the globe, the action is non-stop, albeit not necessarily at the same levels of traffic at all times.

There’s a variety of interesting promotions for added reward and incentive – you can win cash, tournament tickets and much more. And when it comes to rakeback, both sites are fantastic: up to 40% rakeback is available weekly!

And that’s not all – create your player account at Bwin or PartyPoker via YourPokerDream and you’ll receive numerous exclusive extras in the form of extra rakeback, access to special promotions and much more.

N.B. If you have an existing player account that has been inactive for minimum 6 months, you may be able to link this account with YPD retrospectively and enjoy our many exclusive extras.

If you do not have a player account with one of these two sites, simply click on the “Sign Up Now” button and let the fun begin.

GG (Good Game) Network

GG Network

The GGPoker Network is the biggest, poker network in ther world. As one of the few operators that accept players from Asia who, in the main, are recreational and inexperienced poker fans, GG is considered to be particularly fishy, and therefore a favourable hunting ground for those more serious players whose priority is making a profit from online poker.

Of course, there are also European players on the GGNetwork, but much of the traffic hails from Asia and other countries which we would rarely associate with poker.

If your preference is for cash games – whether that’s No Limit Hold’em or Pot Limit Omaha – then the GGNetwork is absolutely right for you. Moreover, whatever your bankroll, from micro stakes to nosebleed high roller tables, there’s always enough people playing.

Meanwhile, many multi-table tournaments are also offered here every day and, as the exclusive partner of the WSOP, there are also unique WSOP tournament series in the GG network from time to time, with prize money in the millions as well as real WSOP rings and bracelets to be won. Add to this the very popular Spin & Gold tourneys, GG’s very own Spin & Go/Jackpot Sit & Go offering, and the GGNetwork provides a smorgasbord of goodies for the poker enthusiast.

The software is very modern and one of the best on the market, and if you like playing several tables simultaneously to generate loads of rakeback, it’s easy and very player-friendly at GGPoker.

The rakeback programme is great, and there are numerous monthly promotions to enhance your online poker experience and boost your bankroll. And don’t forget that you also have a number of exclusive benefits to take advantage of by simply joining one of our partners on the GGNetwork via YourPokerDream – don’t miss out!

For the sharks among you – please note that software such as Hold’em Manager or Poker Tracker are not allowed on the GGPoker Network. This does indeed put off the super serious pros, and is another reason why the player pool is considered weaker than one would expect to find at some other networks.

Use our bonus code: YPD when you register at GGPoker to enjoy our exclusive VIP Deal. Participate in our 80.000$ GGPoker Rake Race and get access to our 2.400$ GGMasters Freeroll Tournament.

We also have 6.000$ in private YPD tournaments and our fantastic 20.000 YPD Masters Leaderboard!

iPoker Network

iPoker Network changes

The iPoker Network has also been one of the biggest names on the scene for many years. If you’re a Cash Game lover you’ll find busy tables at both No Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha from 10am to midnight, but the player pool is not as large as at PartyPoker or GGPoker.

Nevertheless, you can easily play several tables at the same time, and Sit & Go/Spin & Go fans and MTT players will definitely find there’s more than enough action to enjoy on the iPoker network.

There are different promotions every month, thus offering additional incentive to players looking to generate extra cash for the bankroll.

The rakeback deal on the iPoker network is great. If you register now with one of our iPoker partners via our website, we will give you a lifetime upgrade to the highest VIP status, and you can then exchange your points for 30% rakeback – even daily if you want. In addition, all players take part in our exclusive 5k iPoker Rake Chase, which brings you a lot of extra rakeback. And, as already mentioned, there are numerous extra promotions and a great first deposit bonus of up to €2,000.

The use of a HUD and software such as Hold’em Manager and PokerTracker is also allowed at the iPoker network.

Winning Poker (WPN) Network

WPN Network

The Winning Poker (WPN) network is the home of US players, having accepted players from the poker mad nation and others around the globe since 2001. Over the years, the WPN network has evolved, and it is now on a par with the iPoker network. All popular cash game variants are offered, so as well as the usual No Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha you’ll find Seven Card Stud and also Short Deck Hold’em/Six Plus Holdem.

24/7 Cash Game Action is guaranteed, with the most traffic being during evening time in the US. So, if you’re a night owl in Europe and looking for some late night online poker when most people are asleep, you’ll find enough action on the WPN network.

There are numerous daily tournaments, with buy-ins to suit all bankrolls. Meanwhile, Sit & Go fans are also catered for.

Every month there are numerous excellent extra promotions, while new players can take advantage of Welcome Packages. It should also be noted that with the Winning Poker Network there is the facility available to deposit and withdraw with Bitcoin (BTC) and other cryptocurrencies.

Of course, you will also enjoy numerous exclusive benefits when you sign up via YPD at any of our WPN poker rooms.

Chico Network

The Chico Network is the second largest poker network in the world for US players. Cash game players will have no problem finding a game – at all limits – and, importantly, the player pool tends to be very soft.

There are also Sit & Go tournaments, although the number of players here is low, and the tables see action only sporadically. During peak time in the US it is a little better but, compared to other sites, Sit & Go traffic is rather sparse.

The typical schedule of daily multi-table tournaments won’t exactly knock you off your feet, and while you shouldn’t expect the big high-roller tournaments with massive guarantees that are seen at Party/Bwin or the iPoker network, what they do have to offer can certainly be both profitable and fun.

It should be noted that the rakeback possibilities don’t measure up to other networks/sites, but this, of course, means that there are fewer skilled regulars at the tables.
