MPN’s lottery sit and go party, a new poker network launches, PokerStars’ “sizeable project” and more.


The global cash game market is now down over 15% since this time last year, a fall which suggests that the 2016 seasonal low will be well below an average of 30,000 occupied seats.
Traffic Insight

Nearly every market declined this week as the cold weather comes to an end and the euphoria generated by PokerStars in New Jersey wears off.


The end of the first quarter of 2016 has already arrived, and the global online poker cash game market is showing signs that the year will continue the pattern of decline that the market has experienced since 2010.
Traffic Insight

A mixed start to 2016 with robustness in the dot-com market was offset by weakness in the European segregated markets.


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.
Traffic Insight

Total traffic fell slightly after weakness in the European and US facing offshore markets, but the big news is PokerStars’ performance in New Jersey.


With a week to go before the Easter weekend, the global cash game market is not bringing good news. The market fell by another 1.9% this week, dragged down by a poor performance in the European markets.
Traffic Insight

There is little “Good News” for global cash game traffic as Easter approaches.


After this week’s 2.3% reduction in global cash game traffic, the market is down by almost 15% in a year.
Traffic Insight

The global cash game market has now lost an average of one player in eight over the last 12 months.


Global cash game traffic fell by 1.2% this week, substantially less than last week’s fall of 4%. Traffic is now 7.2% below the annual seasonal peak reached on January 11.
Traffic Insight

The global market continues to slide but a PokerStars launch in New Jersey should soon shake up the state regulated market.


The first week of February saw global cash game traffic maintain the gains it made at the end of January, but the last week has seen a short, sharp slump with a fall of 4%.
Traffic Insight

Early February gains evaporated with a sudden slump which took traffic down 4% on the week.


The US state regulated markets follow a different seasonal pattern, and end of month effects in Sweden distort its short term moving averages, but otherwise, the markets seem to have returned to a downwards trend.
Traffic Insight

The January cash game traffic peak has come and gone as seasonal trends reassert themselves.
