After eight consecutive weeks of decline, things looked up last week
After eight straight weeks of declining traffic, the online poker business rose last week with a 2.8% rise, according to the independent monitoring site PokerScout.
Five of the top sites benefited from the surge with traffic increases of 5% or more, and nine of the ten top sites all reported improvements.
Fast-paced Zoom Poker continued to generate a high percentage of Pokerstars action, accounting for 25% of seated cash game players and nearly 50% of cash game hands dealt, whilst Playtech's iPoker network overtook Party Poker to claim second place in the top ten sites, 8% ahead of its arch rival, which inexplicably was one of the few sites that showed a decline.
PokerScout reports that year-on-year numbers show an overall decline in traffic (exc Italy) of 32% since Black Friday, with the top three sites currently:
PokerStars down 16% since Black Friday
iPoker Network up 6 percent
PartyPoker down 4 percent
Positive performers in the top ten included:
Merge Gaming Network up 72 percent
888poker up 54 percent
Bodog up 39 percent
Winamax.fr up 33 percent
Chico Poker Network, which has consistently delivered double or triple digit improvements in traffic, was again up 290 percent.
The International Poker Network (IPN) continued to languish, and was down 46 percent, along with Ongame Network, down 24 percent.
