Full Tilt Traffic Slides 53% Since Relaunch

Full Tilt Traffic Slides 53% Since RelaunchSince relaunching on November 6th, Full Tilt Poker’s traffic has continued to slide and is presently a massive 53% off its highest recorded peak of around 8,000 cash players.
The good news for the online poker room, however, is that with a  seven-day average of 4,300 cash players it still has clear daylight ahead of its nearest competitor for the second spot behind PokerStars. By comparison the iPoker Network, which includes the likes of Titan Poker, William Hill, Bet365 and Betfred, is averaging 2,750 cash players with a fourth place ranked PartyPoker not far behind, either, averaging 2,650 cash players over a seven day period.
At present, Full Tilt is running its tournament series FTOPS, which this year hosts 35 events between December 2nd and 16th. It is also proving as popular as ever and so far with 21 events completed all but two events easily reached their guaranteed prize pool. Unfortunately for Full Tilt, however, tournament play rarely has much impact on cash game traffic.
Meanwhile, PokerStars continues to remain firmly entrenched right at the top of the industry with an average¬† 23,400 real money ring game players visiting the site. PokerStars may have seen its traffic decline by 10% last week, but this was more due to its 90 billionth hand promotion finishing. According to PokerScout, the online behemoth reported 93,168 cash game players the day the hand was hit, with the lucky winner being “m1sspiggy,” who earned $66,380 while five other players received around $14,000 a piece.
Finally, the recently re-branded Microgaming Poker Network, now known as MPN, enjoyed a 20% boost to its player traffic and, after initial glitches during its transition, is looking good to make further progress up the poker traffic rankings.
