A LETTER FROM VINKODear Players,
Creating PokerKing is the culmination of my entire career in gaming. It is more than just a business. It is a revolution aimed at offering a truly fair and exciting gaming experience to players of all levels and interests.For years, as a software provider, I have watched professional players turn into poker operators, hijacking the industry and preying on you, the recreational player. This reason, more than any other, is why PokerKing exists today.
My team and I designed the PokerKing business model to cater to recreational players. We believe that the industry has focused too much on pleasing a handful of high-end players. Their marketing campaigns are all about professional players. Our ads are about a fair environment. This is on purpose. Every player has to start somewhere but, in an industry which actively shuts out beginning players, we believe that you deserve the chance to learn the game safely. Without being preyed upon.
At PokerKing, we rank players so you know who you are playing against. A name tells you nothing but a ranking could tell you everything you need to know. We give you the choice to decide if you would like to risk your money against the pros or play with players at your own level. Unlike the rest of the industry we reward our players based on loyalty, not the number of tables they play on at once.
Over the years I have played in a number of poker rooms. Yet I’ve never received a meaningful bonus. On the other hand, I know hundreds of players who received rake-back and bonuses as reward for draining the average player of their bankroll. It is this kind of practice which discourages beginners from even trying the game, the fear that they will become instant targets before they have even learned all the rules. There aren’t many truly ethical poker sites in existence today; sites which reward returning players for their loyalty, giving their players a secure, fair environment in which to learn and have fun.
If you like to play poker for entertainment then PokerKing is your place to play. We welcome you and your friends. My team and I personally pledge to do everything possible to protect you and your game.We strive to ensure that your experience with PokerKing is safe and enjoyable.
MISSION STATEMENTPokerKing is an online poker organization which is committed to providing a fair and secure gaming environment through the use of bespoke, patented technology and stringent self-regulation. Through the implementation of its unique Player Ranking System, PokerKing aims to create an unprecedented level of transparency within its gaming system, eliminating unfair practice and providing a level playing field for all its members.
ABOUT VINKOIn 1971, Vinko Dobrosevic started his casino career in his native Croatia. After several years, spent working on casino cruise ships and throughout various countries, Vinko joined the burgeoning American Casino industry. In September 1978, Vinko joined the New York School of gambling where he worked, first as a gambling instructor, and later as the assistant director.
Throughout the following decade, Vinko honed his knowledge and skills working for the Tropicana and Trump organization in Atlantic City. Meanwhile, he maintained his career as a trainer at the Casino Career Institute, a subsidiary of Atlantic Community College.
In the 1990’s, Vinko put his skills as a manager and a trainer to use in focusing on turnkey casino management, opening 8 casinos in 6 countries on 4 continents. In the early 2000’s Vinko adapted again, this time turning his talents to the emerging online gaming industry helping to define and sell online gaming products for Online Gaming Systems, a Florida based software development company. A year later, in 2001, he was motivated to start developing his own poker software and, in 2002, established Dobrosoft to fulfill that goal. After several years and lessons learned, Vinko Dobrosevic opened IGSoft, a new software development company building on from the innovations pioneered in his earlier venture. IGSoft is now one of our industry’s leading poker software providers and the company which powers the PokerKing Poker Platform.
Mr. Dobrosevic held a “Key Gaming License” issued by the Atlantic City Gaming Commission and was licensed by the Nevada Gaming Board as a Marketing Representative for the Venetian Casino in Las Vegas for 7 years.
