Tuesday February 19,2013 : ONLINE POKER TRAFFIC CONTINUES TO SLIDE (Update)
4.4 percent decline affected almost all operators last week
The independent online poker monitoring website Pokerscout reports that poker traffic declined further last week, impacting almost all operators.
Traffic decreased by 4.4 percent, with decliners outnumbering gainers 9 to 1 among the top websites, and little change in the popularity rankings.
"Overall, the market is down 10 percent from this time last year, despite the relaunch of Full Tilt Poker and the opening of the Spanish market," Pokerscout reports.
Interestingly, among the few operators offering US poker action, Bodog/Bovada took over the top spot, with an 8 percent lead on closest rival, Revolution. The latter has seen its traffic grow by 46 percent since last year.
