Internet Poker Traffic Drops For 7th Straight Week

This story was published more than 11 years ago.

Internet poker traffic continued its recent nosedive as internet poker traffic monitor PokerScout noted that player numbers dropped for the seventh consecutive week.

The traffic monitor noted that last week's numbers were down 6% from the year before, and that every site in the top ten ranking had weaker numbers then the year before. For the year, the online poker industry has experienced a huge 12% dip in traffic when compared to 2012.

Writing about the drop in traffic PokerScout noted: "The huge drop in overall traffic can be attributed to a European epidemic of spring fever,. Temperatures well above average were seen from London to Moscow as a wave of unusually good weather struck across Europe. As usual, the fair weather sent players scrambling to get outside and away from their keyboards, causing traffic to plunge across the board."

Industry giant PokerStars remained the top overall poker company for the week, with the iPoker Network coming in second. Full Tilt Poker, Party Poker, and 888Poker rounded out the top five.
