Traffic Insight

Global cash game traffic dropped by less than half a percent this week, and much of the credit for the tiny decline must go to PokerStars.

Not only did it launch in New Jersey, adding around 25% to the market numbers, but it also managed to grow in the dot-com market, which did see improved cash game traffic on the week.

Partypoker can celebrate its return to the top five ranked sites in the world after a substantial period where it drifted as low as 7th place in the rankings. Its rise came despite lower traffic numbers, as Winamax and PokerStars Italy both had worse weeks.
