PartyPoker Sees Improved Poker Player Traffic

Poker StarsAccording to a report issued by Pokerscout, the online poker monitor, the traffic that was targeting internet poker websites increased by 2.3 % during last week. The report also stated that the traffic to PartyPoker increased by seven percent which elevated it to the 2nd spot overtaking the iPoker Network that belongs to Playtech after tailing it for thirteen consecutive weeks. The increase in traffic is probably a direct result to the new promotion that is on offer at Party Poker, the “Party’s Card Rush” promo. The promotion allows players to earn instant win scratch card for cash prizes.

A large number of internet poker operators also witnessed pleasing surges in traffic of over six percent. This includes Bwin.Party’s Ongame network that was recently purchased by Amaya Gaming, PkerStars.es, Bodog, iPoker.it, PartyPoker.fr and Winamax.fr among others.

On the other hand, there were some poker operators that suffered from a decrease in their traffic such as iPoker and Revolution network. Both networks witnessed a decrease of more than two percent. Pokerscout also stated that the y-o-y comparison would show that internet poker traffic suffered a decrease of 7 percent. The reasons behind the weekly increase in traffic and the yearly decrease in traffic for the poker rooms is still un clear as there are a lot of elements that can be involved such as the opening of new markets and the new laws and regulations that are implemented by different gambling authorities.
