The COVID-19 corona virus triggers a small online poker boom

As reported a few days ago, there are also winners in the Corona crisis in this difficult time. Online poker is definitely one of the winners. All major live poker events have been canceled. Casinos have been closed and public life stands still. There are curfews in many countries and even where there are no curfews, people are advised to stay at home and only leave the house in an emergency.

It is, therefore, understandable that people are more on the internet. Poker players, especially, now play online poker. For a few days now there has been a very large increase in the number of players at all major providers in terms of the 7-day average of cash game players and it can be assumed that the number of players will continue to increase – we are only talking about the number of cash game players. If tournaments and Sit & Gos were included in the calculation, the increase would be extreme.

Changes in cash game player numbers compared to the previous week (7-day average):

PokerStars: Increase from 6,800 to 8,400 players

GG Network: increase from 2,000 to 2,400 players.

PartyPoker Network: increase from 1,500 to 2,200 players.

888Poker: Increased from 900 to 1,300 players.

Winning Poker (WPN) Network: increased from 800 players to 1,300 players.

iPoker: increased from 650 players to 1.050.

Chico Network: Increased from 450 to 750 players.

Unibet: No change

Microgaming Network (MPN): Increased from 300 to 450 players

The significant increase can actually be seen in all offerings and we assume that the number of players will increase further due to the Corona crisis by about 25%. The Corona (COVID-19) virus has indeed triggered an online poker boom.
