Online Poker Industry Feeling Flushed
By philip
A study published this week by bookmaker Ladbrokes has revealed that the popularity of online poker has grown six fold in the last year alone. Although it has been widely reported that poker is a burgeoning industry, enjoying a uniquely fashionable resurgence, figures showing that the amount gambled in poker rooms around the world increased from £6m a day last January to £38m in December are beyond anyone’s expectation.

Ladbrokes, who themselves claim to have some 50,000 registered users on their own poker room added that some 150 poker rooms are thought to be operating on the internet now, compared with 30 in 2002. In Britain alone £3 million a day is staked on online games. The report speculates that this year’s growth may equal that of last year’s as people continue to catch the poker bug.
