Tuesday October 16,2012 : POKERSCOUT EXTENDS MONITORING SERVICES
Independent online poker monitor now tracking an additional 15 sites
The respected independent online poker monitor Pokerscout has added another 15 sites to its long list of live-tracked online poker rooms.
The company announced Tuesday that it has added a number of new networks in the last week, including the French site Barriere, International.it (Lottomatica), International.ca (Canadian Poker Network), International.es (Spanish Poker Network) and Dollaro Poker.
A company spokesman offered special thanks to operators, who provide live traffic data to make the regularly published stats from Pokerscout valuable to the industry.
Tuesday's stats from the monitor show that year-on-year traffic overall has declined 8 percent, with the top three sites recording declines as follows:
PokerStars 6 percent
PartyPoker 36 percent
iPoker Network 33 percent
Further down the popularity ladder Revolution network and Winamax have recorded year-on-year gains of 56 percent and 15 percent respectively.
Not so fortunate have been IGT Poker – formerly Entraction (down 75 percent and still losing skins); International Poker Network (down 50 percent); Everest Poker (down 45 percent); and PKR (down 27 percent).
