WSOP, 888poker Take Lead in New Jersey Online Poker

This story was published more than 5 years ago.

A shared player pool between World Series of Poker and 888poker has helped both companies surge to the head of the online poker market in New Jersey, bringing in more than $770,000 in rake and fees.

The combined poker player pool makes the two operators the largest operator, eclipsing PokerStars, which came in at $717,000 in rake and fees. The growth of WSOP and 888 jumped 42% over the same period last year, showing that shared pools do help draw in customers. The only major discernable difference between May of 2018 and May of 2017 was the advent of the shared player pool. This shared pool allows punters in Nevada, Delaware, and New Jersey to all play against each other.

Despite the shared pools, it should be noted that the majority of players were from New Jersey, suggesting that the impact of the other states may be somewhat muted over time.

We'll be watching the market over the coming months and will be updating readers as we learn more.

I thought PokerStars are the market leaders almost anywhere on the globe but obviously not in NJ, that WSOP and 888poker collaboration looks to be really great for both brands and it's an example of how you could overcome even a monster of a brand like PokerStars.
