Party Poker 3rd Largest on the World Rankings
Posted on January 19, 2010 by John Trevors for Luckyroom.com
Party Poker, with a range of tempting offers and a revamped VIP program and a series of successful investment operations, climbed to third position in the world ranking of poker rooms on the Internet.
The history of Party Gaming begins in 1997 with the creation of Starluck Online Casino, an online casino leader for the time. Party Poker was created in 2001 and had the lead as the biggest poker site before the UIGEA passed in action. This led the company to block its customers from the United States to preserve its legitimacy which resulted in loss of its position as market leader and additionally resulted to loss of more than 50% of its players which were migrated to other poker rooms that did not step out of the US market at the time. The departure of Party Poker from the US market was exploited by poker rooms that today lead the online poker industry including PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker which have succeeded in a short time to build empires worth more than two billion dollars and at the same time maintain the highest volume of traffic worldwide.
What is interesting is that the Party Gaming and its subsidiary Party Poker finally succeeded to get back on track, but for a long time resided 4th poker network of the world right behind iPoker which hosts amongst others William Hill Poker and Titan Poker. Party Poker currently stands 3rd largest poker network of the world ahead of ipoker and is a stand alone network which means all its players are directed from one and only one poker website; partypoker.com.
The recent acquisition of the WPT, heavy advertising, a well planed loyalty program equivalent to Party Poker Rakeback and ongoing poker promotions are working well for Party Poker which is recently on a good run with constant acquisitions by its proprietor gaming company Party Gaming which amongst others has recently acquired popular online bingo brand Foxy Bingo.
