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.
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%).
