Nevada Online Poker Traffic Soars

October 21, 2013

Earlier this month, latest traffic statistics showed that the combined game traffic for and Ultimate Poker has hit a new high. The two are the first online poker rooms operating in the newly regulated Nevada market.

According to the new data from PokerScout, the two sites have had an average of 232 players within the first week of October. The initial peak was 227 players, which was after the launch of Ultimate Poker.

Currently, Ultimate Poker accounts for 65% of the entire traffic and has managed to be ahead of WSOP, many thanks to this month’s traffic boost.

WSOP is still in its initial rapid growth phase. Given that it is now past the soft launch and beginning to aggressively market its poker room on the Internet, strong growth is expected as the month advances.

Nevertheless, both the online poker sites have had their own share of teething problems. Ultimate Poker is yet to iron out all the version 2 software bugs, and WSOP has experienced geolocation technical hitches in addition to the restricted deposit options. While the player offerings and technology of these companies mature, the market should grow in a rapid way.
