PokerStars Tough Time Gaining Ground

The world’s largest online poker room is still the world’s largest online poker room but a substantial margin, but the company has lost a significant amount of its customer base since exiting the US market on April 15 even after a slight summer surge. 

Two Stars executives were indicted in mid-April for alleged money laundering and bank fraud. 

PokerStars lost around 10,000 average customers after leaving the US market but maintained a solid player base abroad.  At one point the company’s average number of players dropped to just over 20,000, five times more than its closest competitors iPoker and PartyPoker. 

Over the summer, Stars managed to regain some of its losses by reaching around 25,000 average customers.  They have witnessed a gradual decline since.

PokerStars has seen a 24 percent drop off in traffic so far this year.
