While the lockdown is releasing, the number of online poker players is getting back to normal

Online poker 2020

The rapid growth in the online poker industry over the last two months reminded the poker society about the good golden poker time that took place in 2006-2010. Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the number of online poker players exploded all over the world. Almost every provider could at least double its number of players. Now, you might have noticed that everything has gotten back to normal again. Some poker rooms can still see an increase that is still higher than the number of players before the coronavirus outbreak, however, this has more to do with the fact that there is currently no live poker available in casinos. On top of this, all major live poker events have been canceled or postponed.

This tendency might be seen at online poker providers who mainly deal with the European players, such as PartyPoker, or the iPoker network. PartyPoker, for example, had a 7-day average of 3,200 cash game players at the top. At the moment, it’s around 2,200 as it was before. iPoker skins also had an average of 1,600 cash game players and now, traffic is back to normal with around 950 players.

As for online poker providers that accept players from USA, the number of players continues to be above average because the pandemic is still in full swing there and the situation is not so stable as in Europe. With a 7-day average of 1,500 cash game players, the Winning Poker (WPN) network still has almost twice as many players as usual, and the Chico network is also far above the normal numbers with an average of 900 players.

In reality, the number of players is far higher, the numbers mentioned only concern the cash game players according to the information from pokerscout, meaning that the tournament and SNG players are not taken into account in these statistics. It is sad that the online poker boom of the past two months was connected to a negative background.
