Online poker rooms and online casino went through two very busy months, October and November. It is believed that this was because of the 2010 World Series of Poker (WSOP).
For October online gambling sites experienced twice the amount of traffic they usually have. Industry insiders were not surprised by the figures as they understand that the online gambling industry still has a lot of room to grow. “The bottom line is that no matter what the government tries to do to keep prohibition of Internet gambling, US residents are still seeking out sites to place their bets,” said Gaming Analyst Steve Schwartz. “The more the issue is in the mainstream news, the more Americans want to learn about online gambling.”
Other experts also believe that the increase in traffic was related to the midterm elections and some information about online gambling that was distributed in political campaigns. Regardless of the reason that attracted visitors, online casinos and poker sites expect the newcomers to be here to stay.
