Then there were three. South Point Poker has become the third operator to launch real money poker in the state of Nevada, with the quiet soft-launch of its Real Gaming website this week. With this in mind, we decided to ask our reader which Nevada Poker Room will lose more market share to RealGaming.com.
Ultimate Poker got 73% of the votes. Back in January, we listed 5 reasons why Ultimate Poker’s traffic will continue to fall. Ultimate Poker may have been first in the game but South Point Poker promises a much better gaming experience to its players and their software supports Windows, Mac OS X, iOS and Android.
WSOP.com got 27% of the votes. Despite the common complaint about problems depositing money, WSOP.com managed to bridge the traffic gap between itself and Ultimate Poker in a span of 5 months after its launch because players found the software to be better. South Point may entice some of their players but they have a pretty solid player base.
In the meantime, many other operators are interested in launching online poker services in Nevada. 888 has already declared that it wants to launch its All American Poker Network (AMPN) in Nevada at the earliest time possible. The AMPN network has online poker brands from 888, Wynn, and Treasure Island.
For this week’s poll, we decided to ask our readers if Paddy Power went too far with their “Oscar” advertisement. Check back next week to see what our readers have to say.
