PokerStars Tops The Battle For Online Togel Online Traffic
At the top of the online poker battle for most players, PokerStars sits comfortably. So comfortable is PokerStars that they have triple the traffic now of their nearest rival, Full Tilt Poker.
Recent monitoring shows that PokerStars has had nearly three times the number of cash players as Full Tilt Poker and almost 20,000 at its peak on Tuesday while Full Tilt had under 10,000. PartyPoker, which no longer accepts US players, has also been beating out Full Tilt.
One of the biggest shocks is that Bodog.com has not be able to capitalize on the departure of other top online poker rooms from the US market over the past year.
The site continues to flirt with the bottom of the top 10, hardly mirroring the unprecedented growth of the Bodog brand when it was first launched in 2001.
Absolute Poker has recovered nicely from its disastrous “October Surprise”. A consultant for the firm was found to be cheating in some online poker tournaments over a one month period.
The reaction, though slow at first, was to pay out all those who could have remotely have been affected by the “cheater”. All said customers were refunded.
Absolute Togel Online, also a Gambling911.com endorsed online poker room has been edging out Bodog. Its sister site, UltimateBet, frequently comes in around the number 7 online poker room. Both Absolute and UltimateBet, however, rank 3rd and 4th in the US market, respectively.
iPoker Network, OnGame and Everest have ranked among the upper top 10 in recent months. Betfair Poker, another Gambling911.com endorsed online poker room, continues to push its way up from the lower top 15 tier. That major betting firm has held a podcast to announce its new Poker Director, thus signaling Betfair’s commitment to taking on the big boys over the coming months.
Unibet CEO, Peter Nylander released on a €200,000 bail
Unibet’s CEO Petter Nylander was yesterday transferred from the Netherlands to the French legal authorities in Nanterre. The judge decided to release Petter Nylander under the condition of a bail of €200,000 and told that he is to be placed under investigation, which is one step short of being charged, but the case is not likely to lead to a trial.
Detained at Amsterdam’s Schipol Airport for violations against France’s 19th Century gambling monopoly laws, the case has come as an embarrassment to the nation’s Government as it seeks to iron out regulatory proposals on online gaming in-line with European Union law.
Upon leaving court in the western Paris suburb of Nanterre, the boss of the Malta-licensed firm stated that Unibet had always obeyed the law.
The European Union seems to agree as it has disputed the legality of French gambling laws that see lottery operator Francaise Des Jeux and horse racing betting group PMU protected by monopoly laws dating back to 1836 and 1891.
France issued the European arrest warrant for Nylander after he failed to respond to a court order in April but this caused controversy with two members of the European Parliament objecting to the use of a European warrant to detain the Swede. They stated that these warrants were designed to arrest people accused of violent crimes rather than those in business disputes.
