In the game of poker, a player starts by betting one or more chips. The player to his or her left must then “call” the bet or raise it, if necessary. If a player fails to call the bet, he or she must discard the hand and place the same number of chips in the pot as the player to his or her left.
There are various types of poker. There are live poker games that take place at a casino, and there are also games played on an online casino. In Indonesia, poker is played on IDN (Indonesian) servers. This is the preferred version for beginners, as the game offers a wide variety of games, with no need for prior experience.

This has created a shortage of live entertainment options and made online poker an attractive alternative for many casual players. Several operators reported seeing double or triple their traffic after the pandemic hit.
