Although recent news about US legislation against online gambling has shaken up the online gaming industry, the growth of online poker rooms persists, and the recent number of poker rooms has grown to over 600.
As reported to PokerTeam.com, according to the latest listing by PokerSiteScout.com, there are now some 600 operating poker rooms that populate cyber-space, and the number keeps growing. PokerSiteScout.com is an independent website offering latest information concerning the evolving world of online poker games, and has been used before by PokerTeam.com as a reliable source of poker market information.
The online poker traffic report was conducted through the use of three main sources of information:
• The publicly published client software of each poker room.
• The Published information that is available on the poker websites.
• Press releases that inform about new poker rooms.
This research includes only relevant poker rooms, and excludes many irrelevant ones, such as strictly play money online poker rooms, as well as poker tutorial sites. The reported research includes only cash game poker rooms, which are much more relevant for analyzing the poker gaming market.
