The large online gambling company Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment has just set up everything that is needed in order to being online gaming operation in the state of New Jersey, as soon as it gets legalized in November 2013.
The famous poker traffic monitor that offers full information about any online poker room: PokerScout has just showed some disappointing numbers for WSOP.com, especially if you compare it with the other US legal poker room from Nevada: Ultimate Poker. The latter managed to pull in more than 260 poker players during the period when WSOP.com had only 152 players.
The WSOP.com is currently using the 888.com platform and it has a greater diversity of games and there is also a downloadable version for Mac users. But even with all that there seems to be quite hard to attract players with all that during the very first week of operations. One of the reasons why all this happened is because there was a very light marketing campaign done in order to promote the new website and this way there are still very few people that know about the existence of this US legal online poker website.
Even if there weren’t any players at the poker tables, the fact that WSOP.com was launched, it managed to have a negative impact on the Ultimate Poker since it already started to see their player traffic go down.
