GGPoker and PokerStars To End 2021 On A Tie For Cash Game Traffic Rankings?
- GGPoker and PokerStars neck-to-neck in cash game traffic
- GGPoker will be pleased but PokerStars will be disappointed
- Will GGPoker gain market dominance in 2022?
PokerStars dominated just about every market it has entered into for the last decade and a half though it has been asked to leave alot of markets recently. The online poker room has also faced competition from the likes of 888poker and partypoker over the years but they were unable to topple PokerStars.
GGPoker showed up on the scene a few years ago and in no time made a name for itself. GGPoker has provided stiff competition for PokerStars in terms of cash game traffic during the last couple of years. GGPoker started pushing PokerStars in 2020 and kept up that pace this year as the online poker room took over the first place in terms of cash game traffic for a number of weeks in 2021.
As we come to the end of 2021, stats show that both PokerStars and GGPoker are tied in terms of cash game traffic. Throughout the years, the two poker operators have traded the first place for cash game traffic. PokerStars dominated the cash game traffic market from Oct 16 to Dec 11 but GGPoker has once again claimed the lead and will look to finish 2021 on a strong note.
GGPoker will definitely feel happy with their overall performance in 2021 and will consider it a victory to be tied with PokerStars in terms of cash game traffic but PokerStars will feel a bit let down as the online poker operator has been unable to power past GGPoker and achieve market dominance.
Expect Big Promotions In Coming Months
While these two online poker operators continue to try and outdo each other by running multiple promotions and special offers, online poker players are going to continue to be the beneficiaries. GGPoker has given away over $10 million in bonuses and prizes during the last four months in a get to bring in more players to the site.
PokerStars not to be outdone is also currently running a 25 days of tournaments for poker players in America while its Bauble Blast promotions is giving out special rewards for the .com market.
GGPoker will be looking to pull away from PokerStars in 2022 but the team behind PokerStars is working behind the scenes to come up with special promotions for the New Year.
