Seven of Top 10 Online Poker Sites See Gains

This week, the online poker sector witnessed a 1.3 percent rise in overall traffic with seven of the top ten sites seeing gains.  Oddly enough, all three of the PokerStars related websites were the only declines among the top 10:  PokerStars.com (ranked number one), PokerStars.it (ranked number 5) and PokerStars.fr (ranked number 7).  Most unusual is that the PokerStars site has been hosting the World Series of Online Poker this week, which traditionally would deliver more interest.

The Merge Poker Network took a 10 percent hit following an erroneous report that it was a target of an investigation being conducted by the Maryland US Attorney’s Office.  Gambling911.com quickly confirmed this not to be the case.

PokerScout.com noted that PartyPoker and iPoker Network both rose strongly, gaining 6 percent and percent, respectively.   PartyPoker continues to trail iPoker in its quest to recapture the number two spot.
