Full Tilt Down To 4th Spot In Online Poker TrafficSeptember 25, 2013 1:23 pm
According to the latest report by PokerScout.com, Full Tilt Poker has now slipped to fourth place in online cash game traffic behind PokerStars, iPoker Network and 888Poker.
The battle for third place has been fiercly contested for a long time, with poker rooms trying to wrestle the spot from Full Tilt Poker in the past including PartyPokerand bwin.party.
Then back in June, 888Poker was able to climb the ranks for fourth place, although it seemed a mighty task for the company to then overtake Full Tilt for third spot. This week, however, 888 was able to make that a reality after enjoying a seven-day average of 2,150 players compared to 2,100 players playing cash-games on Full Tilt Poker over the same period.
The increase in player traffic also now puts 888Poker within a short distance of bridging the extra 150 players or so needed in order to overtake iPoker for second place.
In addition, 888Poker saw its revenue boosted by 13% to $46.9 million in H1 2013, and the company’s impressive performance may give it just the boost needed to take second spot before the year’s end.
Nevertheless, PokerStars’ position in pole position will remain secure, considering the iPoker Network in second place has a seven-day traffic average of 2,300, less than a tenth of the 20,800 players visiting the world’s biggest site over the same period.
Meanwhile, Full Tilt Poker would appear to be pulling out all the stops in order to halt its dramatic slide and is currently running a Take 2” promotion. This promotion will run through to Sunday October 6th, and enables players to earn double FTP Points anytime of the day by playing at the site’s Rush poker tables or at two or more regular cash games tables at the same time.
