This is the first and probably the most popular Ukrainian Poker site and it was founded way back in 1994. It initially had the name Parimatch and was part of the iPoker network. But as they left the network they changed their strategy and also their name, becoming PokerMatch. They are now a part of the Pokerdom network.
While not among the best poker platforms in the world, it can be a good choice for some people because of its low level of experienced players (so as the poker enthusiasts like to say, here you will find plenty of “fish”). But it also has good bonuses, decent tournaments, a reliable mobile application, a decent number of players and Russian language support.
The software is easy to use and compatible with all the operating systems. It has plenty of filters so you can quickly find the type of game that you want to play. You can set the buy-in limits, the currency of the table, the number of players, the type of poker and so on.
The software is also customizable, allowing you to change the theme, the design of the cards, your avatar, the sound volume and other settings. They are against poker trackers, so you won’t be able to use them on PokerMatch. They also have a mobile version, that is compatible to both Android and iOS phones.
In regards to traffic, they have around 2,500 players during the day and around 5,000 at night. While not comparable with the traffic of leading poker rooms, it’s still enough for you to play no matter the hour you sign in.
PokerMatch features a wide variety of cash games with different limits (starting as low as 0,005 / 0,10 UAH and going up to 250 / 500 UAH). The most popular games on the website are the Texas Holdem and the Omaha.
They also have multiple tournaments with buy-ins for all levels. The lowest ones have an entry fee of just 1 UAH and can go up to 100 UAH. During the weekends they also have larger tournaments with prize pools of up to 100,000 UAH. And occasionally they offer huge main events that have buy-ins of up to 10,000 UAH and prize pools that can reach 1 million UAH (Ukraine’s currency).
They also have Sit & Go tournaments which are not that popular, and lottery tournaments that can bring you huge prizes in just a few minutes. The rake held by PokerMatch is usually 5% but can vary depending on certain factors.
It is easy to make deposits on the website and they support the most popular payment methods. Depending on the method of your choice, there are certain limits. For example, with a credit card you can deposit a minimum of 100 UAH ($ 5) and a maximum of 500,000 UAH ($ 20,000).
They also have multiple choices when it comes to cash-outs, and they are processed in just a few hours. The limits for withdrawals are a minimum of 250 UAH and a maximum of 150,000 UAH.All news
