Top Poker Sites: Largest Rooms Post Black-Friday

Overlooked fall-out from Black Friday: no more Joanna Krupa on the NAPT.

Today is the five month mark since Why’s-It-Gotta-Be-Black Friday.

Crazy–just five months ago, even with a myriad of payment processing issues– Full Tilt Poker and UltimateBet were unbelievably profitable entities. Now, gone.

With that in mind, here’s a look at the top 10 poker sites (by active players) in the world today.

Stats via PokerScout:


Just outside the Top 10 are U.S.-facing sites Merge (12th – 1,080 active weekly average), Bodog (13th – 1,000 active weekly average), and Cake (18th – 730 active weekly average).

Looking back at the week that was 4/15–Merge was already experiencing a massive year-over-year surge (up 333%) as was 888 (58%).

Cake Poker (down 69% the week of 4/11 year-over-year) and PartyPoker (down 22%) were getting kicked in the nuts. But they’ve both seen obvious gains since 4/15 with the top losers being (obviously) Full Tilt (down 100%) and UB (down 97%).
