According to Pokernewsdaily, online poker cash games saw a 2.9% activity spike last week.
It was the third straight week of such upticks.
While partypoker also had an accelerated amount of traffic, it concurrently had a number of issues with new software that was unveiled last Thursday. Consequently, partypoker lost about 13% of its traffic (last Friday from the previous Friday) due to these persistent glitches.
Another top site experiencing a drop in traffic was Full Tilt Poker.
That one laggard was Full Tilt Poker as players moved on to other rooms after the conclusion of the Build Your Bonus promotion (as frequently happens with any room upon the end of the promo).
“After PokerStars, iPoker, and Full Tilt Poker, 888Poker and PartyPoker round out the top five in PokerScout’s rankings,” Pokernewsdaily reports.
