bwin.party depicts the performance of its online poker products in a positive light in its first quarter financial report, and has promised a number of upgrades to be introduced over the next few weeks.
Cash game traffic for partypoker has been the best performer of the top five sites since the year began, and the report points to this as evidence of a “robust” performance.
Actual numbers declined both against the previous quarter and against the same quarter last year. However, compared to the market which lost 15%, partypoker’s single digit losses indicated a strong performance.
As reported last week, the new poker client introduced to the dot-com market in August, and used for its New Jersey regulated poker room is going to be rolled out to French and Italian customers by the end of 2014.
The existing Android and iOS mobile clients for the dot-com, New Jersey and French networks will be upgraded to include Sit and Go tournaments. “With further product innovations and new tournaments scheduled for later in the year, we are focused on improving our poker performance,” the report concludes.
“We remain optimistic about new market opportunities in the United States with online poker bills currently being reviewed in California and New York,” announced CEO Norbert Teufelberger and then reiterated his commitment to the US market, saying that partypoker is “determined to secure leading positions in all eligible states that represent a significant business opportunity.”
