Boss Media is widely renowned as one of the stalwarts within the online poker industry. The company has evolved from just one skin into a poker network that rivals that of the very best. The company now boast over 35 skins throughout their network, of which you can find more about the best boss Media Poker skins in our table below.
The network gets an average amount of traffic and is probably one of the few that have lasted so long without a re-brand of some sort. However, the company does run the IPN (International Poker Network) which is essentially the name of the network of sites that operate the Boss Media software.
About the IPN/Boss Media Network
The Boss Media Network was founded in 1996, and is regarded as one of the first online poker networks. They were also one of the first companies of allow other poker rooms to use their software (skin) and advertise a host of promotions and tournaments that were offered from their site under a different name.
The company have heavily invested and focused on the supply of innovating and exciting new software developments, which have been in turn sold to other networks. It was thought back in the early days of online poker that the majority of poker sites had some aspect that was originally designed by Boss Media.
The Network since then has gone through peaks and troughs in terms of players through their doors. The current 7 day average lies at around 2,000 players, which is still a relatively impressive number given the nature of the current online poker industry and the fact that it does not accept US based players.
Poker Games Available
Boss Media have always managed to incorporate a wide range of poker games into their poker software. These include Texas Holdem, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, 5 Card Draw, 5 Card Stud, Soko and 7 Card Stud. Whilst this isn’t the largest variant of poker games in the industry, it will cover the majority of basses of the majority of poker players. The lack of more niche poker games will likely not make much difference to the already established player pool that it boasts.
As the network provides for a diverse range of players from a number of countries, it provides currencies in USD, EUR and GBP. The only downside to this is that there is no filter in their lobby to choose between the different currencies making it a relative chore to select the right one.
