Internet poker traffic saw a significant boost last week as visitors jumped 6% from the same period last year.
Large poker firms such as PokerStars, PartyPoker, the Microgaming Poker Network, and 888 all gained at least 5%, although recently re-launched site Full Tilt Poker saw a slight dip in traffic.
PokerStars remained the top overall poker site in terms of traffic and market share.
Even with the surge for the week poker traffic is still down 4% when compared to 2012's opening weeks of traffic.
