Many might be surprised that Americas Cardroom, Black Chip Poker Winning Poker Network has surpassed Full Tilt Poker on online poker traffic monitor, PokerScout.com.
Here’s the press release from Winning Poker Network.
San Jose, Costa Rica – February 1st, 2016 – If you’ve noticed more traffic at the Winning Poker Network tables, you’re not imagining things. The US-facing online poker network today surpassed Full Tilt Poker on the leading online poker traffic monitoring site, PokerScout.com. The website tracks player traffic at nearly 70 different poker networks. The Winning Poker Network is the No. 2 US-facing poker network in terms of traffic and the #12 network internationally.
The Winning Poker Network is home to Americas Cardroom and Black Chip Poker, two leading US-facing online poker sites. The network first proclaimed that the glory days of poker are back in late 2014 after introducing a Million Dollar Sunday tournament, the likes of which US poker players hadn’t seen since 2011. The network’s upward movement on PokerScout.com continues to prove that.
Its commitment to big guarantees, its innovations like Jackpot Poker and freebuys, and the adoption of Bitcoin as a payment method have all made Winning Poker Network sites a player magnet for those in the United States.
But the Winning Poker Network has also proven to be an international leader, demonstrated today when it overtook Full Tilt in terms of cash game traffic. On February 1st, 2016 the 24-hour peak numbers hit 1,444 players, ahead of Full Tilt’s 1,249 players.
Experts credit Winning Poker Network’s commitment to ensuring that players are rewarded fairly as a big draw, especially at a time when big name players are feeling abandoned by some of the major providers. Full Tilt’s parent company angered poker players around the world by revamping their loyalty program on sister site PokerStars, making it far less lucrative for serious grinders to make extra money.
Fueling players to Winning Poker Network sites are its loyalty program and two point races — The Beast and Sit & Crush. The Beast is a progressive points race that’s funded entirely through the rake that players already pay. The leaderboard competition rewards hundreds of players each week with cash prizes and tourney seats, just for playing on qualifying cash game tables. Sit & Crush is much like The Beast, except it’s designed exclusively for Sit ‘n Go players.
Coupled with Elite Benefits (WPN’s loyalty program), the two point races offer players the potential to win impressive sums of money. The top player in 2015 at WPN earned nearly $140,000 in extra money and tournament tickets through rewards.
