|Online casino and poker room Purple Lounge has announced a month-on-month growth of 350 percent in the second quarter of the year, following its decision to suspend its US based business.|
Share prices of American facing firms have plummeted this week following the passing of the Internet Gambling bill by US Congress, however Purple Lounge Chairman Chris Gorman explained that the firm’s current 10 percent weekly growth proved that his company had not been affected.
“The Scandinavian and European markets remain our core business, and the States accounted for a minimal amount, in fact around 0.1 per cent,” he said. “Since the beginning of September, we stopped taking sign-ups and bets from US players, and we’ve recently launched in Spain and see this as an exciting emerging market.”
Purple Lounge online casino and poker room promises to offer players an alternative to many rival websites by providing facilities such as lifestyle services and forums detailing travel news and current affairs from around the world, plus a sophisticated online gaming experience. The company, which has over 30,000 members, recently appointed the model Aylar as the new face of Purple Lounge.
