Upoker is the latest private poker game app to burst out on to the Asian poker scene. Upoker has quickly garnered a lot of popularity not just in Asia but other regions of the world as well. If you’re familiar with PPPoker, you will instantly understand the interface. Upoker is created by Chinese developers and is based on the same lines as PPPoker: a great interface, robust backend and detailed stats for players and agents alike.
If you’re hearing about PPPoker, Poker Bros or Upoker for the first time, don’t fret, we’ve got you covered. Getting back to introduction of Upoker, they aim to decentralize poker and disrupt the traditional poker room – punter arrangement found on most online poker rooms. Their slogan is ‘Bigger, better, poker’ which promises quite a lot for the poker game experience! Upoker is a mobile poker game app which essentially operates in a closed-pool, play-money, private playing environment. The Upoker app is developed by The Optimizer Investments Limited. On Upoker, players play through agents and the chips hold no value. However, there’s more to it!
We’re constantly looking to find new clubs with juicy action for our players at Upoker. Make sure to ask us about new Upoker clubs available when you join. For those players who are used to playing on major online poker sites, Upoker is a also a good place to start exploring the games on mobile poker apps. This is due to the fact the UI of Upoker allows easy multi-tabling and our clubs offer multiple game formats to suit all tastes. Poker industry is changing rapidly and mobile poker is here to stay – it doesn’t make sense to miss out on it!
So, how does everything work? Since Upoker app isn’t your typical poker site, we’ve broken down everything in a Q & A format to explain everything to you in this Upoker review. Let’s start the review with our very own Beast KingPampo showing you some 6-card PLO action on UPoker:
How to join a club?
First, you should download Upoker app by typing in Upoker on the App store (or Google Play Store for Android users). Click Download, install the poker app & open a Upoker account.
Once you open the poker app, on the home screen you’ll see a magnifying glass on the right. It’s been marked in blue in the image above. Click on it and it’ll open a pop-up asking you for the club ID.
Now, ask your Upoker agent the respective Club ID and enter the details here. Once done, you’ll see the club name and below it, it’ll say ‘JOIN”. Click on join and that’s it. Now, the club will accept you and add you under your agent.

How does Upoker function?
Upoker is a platform which provides you all resources to play poker against friends or other global players. Upoker however, doesn’t guarantee you any real money winnings. All it does is provide you a state-of-the-art poker interface and an access to a global player pool for a small fee. We’ll discuss this in later sections.
Now, to get started, you need to find a reliable agent who runs a club or form a club yourself and invite your friends to play. If you play through an agent on Upoker, you’ll need to decide a payment method that suits you both. Then, your agent will find clubs for you wherein you’ll send requests and start playing on your Upoker account. Sounds simple enough, doesn’t it?
Just a reiteration: Upoker doesn’t provide real money games or services or owe you any money for winnings. It’s your agent who will settle accounts every week. Agents get paid by the club owners, who in turn get paid by the unions of Upoker.
Why is Upoker so popular?
In addition to mobile version for iOS and Android, Upoker has launched a Windows version that you can install on your PC. This is great for players who like to multi-table as you don’t need to use an emulator to play on their poker app. Inside the UPoker application, you can choose your preferred language. Supported languages include English, Chinese, Portuguese, Spanish, Russian, Japanese, and Vietnamese.
Upoker developers have kept the users in mind and created a simple, nonsense-free club lobby. All information is neatly presented in the Upoker software and it’s really easy to choose a cash game table or tournament of your liking. You can use the filter to make it even easier to choose a table. One could safely state that the Upoker app delivers a user-friendly interface!
Other than the above, it’s really easy to check your stats, chip count and any messages in the club when the Upoker client is open.
Note that currently you can play at 4 different Upoker clubs simultaneously. Don’t worry about running out of time during hands – the UI is fantastic and you should have no issues in juggling 4 tables at one time.
How do I find a trusted agent and what is a union
Here at BeastsofPoker, we take pride in the fact that we’ve been players ourselves and have a collective experience of 140 years and over USD 25 million in real cash winnings on online poker sites. As agents, we have an excellent reputation in the online poker world and we work with the best in the business. Rest assured, we will get you the best deals possible for Upoker as well as other mobile poker apps and sites mentioned on our website.
A union is when many agents come together and combine their player pool to form 1 bigger club so that there is a lot of action. Still, the basic idea on Upoker is that you can get to know the player pool pretty well and get the feeling of playing home games on your smartphone or iPad.
Like mentioned before, every Upoker club has its own chip conversion and you deposit or cash out according to that chip ratio. Most Upoker clubs are part of the legacy of PPPoker, so there shouldn’t be an issue with action in the clubs. You can find both cash games and poker tournaments in most Upoker clubs. Playing mobile poker on Upoker feels like sitting down at your home games, where action can grow pretty wild at times!
Also, you aren’t just restricted to one club; you can play mobile poker in as many Upoker clubs as you want, provided you have the right, reliable agent.
Deposit and cashout methods
Since there isn’t a real money poker operator you’re dealing with, you need to conduct all transactions through your Upoker agent instead of a cashier. Simply, send the deposit amount to your agent with whatever payment methods they have available. After that, your agent should give you chips for the deposited amount to play games with in a particular club on Upoker.
Similarly, when you want to cash out, you tell your agent to take out the necessary chips from your account and settle the winnings in your preferred payment method. Normally, all accounts are settled weekly. Your agent will send you the weekly report which you can tally with your stats available on the app.
Remember that different clubs have different chip values but as a standard, everything is converted to USD or your local currency. This isn’t complicated at all as your agent will explicitly tell you the chip value before you start playing on Upoker.
On Upoker, the maximum rake a club owner can charge you is 5% which is capped at 3 Big Blinds. When you compare the softness of the games to normal poker sites, it’s an excellent deal for the player.
As far as rake back is concerned, you need to discuss this with your agent to get the best deal possible on Upoker. Like we mentioned earlier, we strive to provide you the best rakeback deals possible so that you can maximize your poker winnings.
“UPoker is very similar to PPPoker. The interface is a bit better, and if humanly possible: so is the action. The choice of Upoker clubs or the number of running tables are not as high as on PPPoker, but the site is growing fast and when the action arrives – you can be sure it’s worth it. What we are witnessing in online poker is a gold rush caused by new app-poker games. Get there in time and thank us later. May the good run be with you!”

Upoker Player Journey in 6-max Hold'em & PLO (2020)
‘’Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe’’
What’s the equivalent of sharpening the axe before chopping down a tree in poker, i.e. trying to beat your opponents to the maximum possible? You’ve guessed it – it’s choosing where to play. And that’s where my Upoker poker journey started on 22th of March, having all the time for playing poker, only visiting a supermarket twice a week… and going for a run to get some fresh air from time to time! Other than that, I’m pretty much online all the time. As the headline hints, I chose to login & start my poker journey at Upoker.
Having experienced some mobile poker apps like PPPoker and Pokio, Upoker was not a totally different animal to me. It is actually somewhat similar to those other apps. I’ve included an outlook on the games, traffic and especially the poker game experience – let’s go back to the Sunday when I first opened the mobile poker app:
Games at Upoker: The first few days
So I start out by applying to two different clubs called Breeds and Poker Hero. First, I install the poker app on my iPhone 8, and later on my PC as I thought I’d rather be able to play on Upoker whether on the move or at home. I make my first deposit through a bitcoin transfer. As a side note, my deposit is guaranteed 100% by Beasts Of Poker. This is always a great benefit when you try out a new club or mobile poker app.
I jump at the cash games tables with blinds of approx. 0.3USD/0.6$ and 0.6/1.2$. When I click to see the VPIP% of different players at the tables, I find several between 60-85% – not a bad start! I open a few more tables to get more hands per hour, as Upoker allows you to play up to 4 tables at once. There are fireworks everywhere: chips being moved back and forth, players throwing emojis around, sick bluffs being pulled off and the clock is barely past the noon time. Poker Hero is a club with origins in Thailand, so the majority of poker players at their tables come from Asia.
I continue to play the loose Hold’em games with blinds 0.3USD/0.6$, 0.6/1.2$ and 0.9/1.8$. Suddenly, I start to lose some crucial big pots. I run KK into QTo on Q86r flop for 170bb’s each and it’s a T on the turn to give my villain two pair. Then I hit middle set on KQ6cc and 3bet the flop, only to see the turn flush draw being completed with less than 40% pot-size effective stacks left. So I go broke on that one too. While this is just standard variance and doesn’t make Upoker rigged, in Holdem it tests your patience a bit since you’re probably facing a long stretch of bad & mediocre hands before putting your stack in again. I think to myself: ‘Why not try some Omaha on Upoker?’ And so, Omaha it is!
I jump at the first table where they have a free seat at. Oops, it’s 6-card PLO. But hey, there’s a first time for everything in poker – including Omaha with 6 cards, so let’s go! One hand later I’m one stack poorer, and play for a little while at that table. I make the transition into 5-card PLO, which I at least think I know the basics of. So, I sit on a 0.6/1.2$ table of HU PLO5 and a maniac sits down with me. At the same time, I also open a ring game table with blinds of 1.5/3.0$. This time I manage to run good. I play a few more hands of the HU before deciding to call it a day. As I’ve now tried pretty much all the cash game formats, I decide to check out the poker tournaments next weekend on Upoker!
Now what are the differentiating features (besides straddling, the table chat, the player stats being visible with 1-click which can also be found from some other apps) that made me go into a play-frenzy for 5 days on Upoker? The two most important features in my opinion are:
Proper timers for each street
While the games are good also on PPPoker, what I missed there was enough time to think before making a decision which button to click. On Upoker, you have a 15-second timer for each street, which is plenty for a mobile poker app. Playing 4 tables with a proper timer like this is no problem!
In case you want to have even more thinking time at the tables, you can also purchase a VIP status for some additional time banks.
Good multitabling features
Upoker allows you to play 4 tables at once, which can at times get you quite busy if you have a situation developing at more than 1 table simultaneously. How to decide where to put your attention? Upoker has solved this problem by showing you the starting hand you’re dealt at each table on the top of the screen. This way you can see whether you’re in a hurry to play a premium starting hand at another table, or if you can just play out the current hand while a trashy starting hand at the other table goes into the muck in case you don’t click anything in time.
You can also hit the pot-button on the betslider at a PLO table, or the all-in button at a Hold’em table. Overall, the multitabling feature for a 6-max Hold’em or Omaha player is definitely above average.
To sum up this poker journey, I would say Upoker is both a ton of great action and fun at the same time. You can play Omaha with up to 6 cards, but if you prefer to stick with just two and play Holdem, there are plenty of tables running also during daytime in Europe. In fact, I liked Poker Hero so much that I never even tried out the other Upoker club! The weekly rewards are decent as well, if you play any volume on a weekly basis. My recommendation therefore as the club to start from is Poker Hero, where you can get 40% rakeback.
