Latest H2 Gambling Capital numbers look encouraging
Could international online poker be emerging from the doldrums? New numbers from the respected H2 Gambling Capital firm may indicate that this is happening.
The company reported this week that real money internet poker has broken a two-year drought, again showing growth in gross gaming yield, which in September reached Euro 248 million – up just over 4 percent on the same period last year.
H2 notes that average tournament and ring-game player numbers recorded a 3.6 percent rise to 95,600, again compared with September 2011.
The company observes that the re-launch of Full Tilt Poker early in November is expected to further boost growth.
