Full Tilt Poker started 2008 on the right foot by overtaking PartyPoker in the crucial online poker market.
Still accepting US customers, the online poker website Full Tilt Poker real cash players came in just shy of 10,000 over a 24 hour period average while the peak just narrowly beat out PartyPoker, which has been struggling to gain more customers outside the US since leaving that market just over a year ago.
PokerStars continues to lead the pack with double the number of players as Full Tilt.
PokerStars hit an interesting milestone of its own this past week. It was the first online poker room to hit 20,000 simultaneous real money ring game players.
PartyPoker is also facing increased competition from other online poker ventures. Both the OnGame and iPoker networks are breathing down Party’s back in the international markets.
Among the remaining top 5 US-facing poker rooms, UltimateBet.com, Absolute Poker and Bodog Life Poker are promising more aggressive advertising over the next year and have expressed their long term commitment to Gambling911.com in helping them accomplish this feat.
UltimateBet and Absolute are sister poker sites that run independently. Combined, they would rank as the 6th largest online poker venture in the world behind PokerStars, Full Tilt, PartyPoker, OnGame and iPoker.
Bodog Poker is promising more aggressive advertising, a boost in the European market and a 110% sign up bonus for new online poker players.
Bodog Keluaran HK Poker has been criticized for having poor celebrity player endorsements such as David Williams, who has fallen off the radar in recent months. Bodog was the talk of the poker world last year (and essentially placed them on the map) following a win by its player, Jamie Gold, in last year’s World Series of Poker. They would later sever ties with Gold.
Absolute encountered a setback this autumn after an “insider” was found to be reading player hole cards in big money tournaments. Absolute would later refund everyone who participated in the suspect tournaments while ridding itself of the unscrupulous employee.
