Il poker “cash” compie due anni

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 18 luglio 2013

Sono passati 2 anni dal lancio in Italia del poker “cash game”, una modalità che nel primo biennio ha fatto registrare una spesa complessiva di oltre 418 milioni di euro Oltre 418 milioni di euro in due anni: è questa la spesa complessiva dei giocatori di poker cash online, come evidenziano i dati raccolti da NetBetPoker.it, portale leader in Italia nei giochi da casinò online, in collaborazione con LivePartners, società che promuove e gestisce a livello mondiale alcuni dei più grandi marchi nel settore dei giochi su Internet.Quasi 128 milioni di euro di spesa nel 2011, oltre 117 milioni nel primo semestre 2012, più di 92 milioni nel secondo semestre 2012 e oltre 81 milioni nel primo semestre 2013 (stima NetBetPoker.it e LivePartners). Questi sono i numeri con cui il poker cash game festeggia il suo secondo compleanno in Italia.«Il tutto è cominciato il 18 luglio 2011, quando insieme ai casinò online è stato reso legale su Internet anche il poker cash game» puntualizzano i responsabili di NetBetPoker.it. Così il poker cash game ha rivoluzionato il poker online in Italia che fino ad allora si limitava alla modalità “torneo”, con una spesa complessiva che nel 2011 si attestava sopra i 256 milioni di euro.«Nella modalità “torneo” ciascun giocatore versa la stessa quota d’iscrizione e inizia a giocare nello stesso momento con l’obiettivo di arrivare primo o comunque in una posizione che permetta di aggiudicarsi un premio. Mentre nella modalità “cash game” il giocatore può giocare anche solo una singola mano, il cui esito comporta l’immediata vincita o perdita della puntata» spiegano i responsabili del portale NetBetPoker.it. All’inizio era possibile giocare solo in modalità “for fun”, senza quote d’iscrizione né premi in denaro, poi dal 2 settembre 2008 iniziarono le prime partite online con soldi veri al poker in modalità “torneo” e dal 18 luglio 2011 le prime partite di poker “cash game”.«Considerando congiuntamente il poker a torneo, il poker cash e gli altri giochi di carte, nel 2012 la spesa è cresciuta rispetto all’anno precedente» commentano gli analisti di NetBetPoker.it. Vero è infatti che, dal Texas Hold’Em allo Stud, dal Razz al Draw, le varianti del poker oggi spopolano online.Il bilancio tracciato da NetBetPoker.it indica che 4,5 milioni di italiani hanno giocato a poker almeno una volta su Internet, mentre i giocatori abituali che giocano regolarmente almeno una volta al mese sono 600 mila. La maggior parte dei “player” è di età compresa tra i 24 e i 45 anni e in quanto alla distribuzione geografica il Lazio detiene il 15% del volume di gioco, seguito dalla Lombardia con il 13% e dalla Campania con il 12%.

On the bubble for third place were MattBates and Kimpet. MattBates went all guns blazing with a pair of 8s, which trumped Kimpet’s ace high, putting him through to the final 3. The bubble resulted in both RYAN1983 and JAKALLY going all in with Ryan1983 riding on his ace-seven, while JAKALLY held ace-queen.

London. Thousands of affiliates joined the race to drive traffic to EP’s online poker rooms, but only one drove away with the top prize – a brand new Porsche Carrera Earlier this week, the online gaming affiliate program Euro Partners announced the long-awaited winner of its exclusive Poker Porsche promotion. The lottery-style contest called upon the program’s wide network of affiliates to increase promotional efforts for its online poker rooms, Titan Poker and Mansion Poker. Of the thousands who participated, EP’s Research & Analysis team short-listed the top 50 who succeeded in driving the largest amounts of traffic. Davin Jacobson, EP’s newly-appointed Head of Affiliation, had not yet joined the company when the promotion began, but was pleased to be part of the prize giveaway. “Our winner is the owner and operator of several successful industry portals, including pokerinside.com. He’s a long-standing member of our program, and we’re happy that the prize is going to such a worthy contestant.” Launched late last June following the highly-publicized Full Tilt Poker scandal, the promotion was intended to offset some of the negative backlash which had reverberated throughout the poker affiliate community. “Those were precarious days for the industry and doomsday speculations were running rampant”, Jacobson said. “This promotion was our way of telling the affiliates that Euro Partners would remain a solid and reliable partner.”
Titan Poker, Euro Partners’ flagship poker brand, is currently running its own exciting promotions for online poker fans, including Titan Time, which offers $20,000 in weekly cash table and tournament races throughout the month of October, and European Football League, which offers $30,000 to players who correctly guess this season’s match results. For additional details, visit Titanpoker.com/promotions.
Euro Partners is currently the largest and most established affiliate program for Playtech licensees worldwide. Operating in over a dozen languages, the dedicated and highly trained Euro Partners team offers its gaming clients and affiliate members personalized service with a localized touch.
