PokerScout.com, a leading online poker traffic monitoring website, covers the poker traffic numbers of top online pokers sites in the industry. This week, the resource site found that the Winning Poker Network has passed Full Tilt Poker, becoming the second US-facing poker network based on traffic numbers and falling into the #12 spot when it comes to network totals internationally.
Americas Cardroom and Black Chip Poker call the Winning Poker Network home, two top online poker sites offered in the United States. The sites started their way back to popularity when the network added the Million Dollar Sunday tournament back in late 2014, an option that players in the United States had not seen for many years.
With the large tournament guarantees, unique options like Jackpot Poker and the addition of Bitcoin as a financial option, the sites on Winning Poker Network have only continued to grow in popularity in the US. Not only has the Winning Poker Network been successful in the United States, but also internationally. This was proven as the network overtook Full Tilt in regards to traffic in cash gaming. On the 1st of February of this year, PokerScout reported the 24-hour peak traffic numbers to be at 1,444, which is a nice lead compared to the 1,249 players at Full Tilt.
On top of their gaming options, the Winning Poker Network is also popular due to the rewards and incentives offered. The network includes a quality loyalty program as well as two point’s races, known as Sit & Crush and The Beast. The progressive points race known as The Beast is funded via rake and awards hundreds of poker players every week with seats to popular tournaments and cash prizes, just for competing in cash gaming tables. Sit & Crush is a similar race but is designed for those who enjoy the SNG tables.
Combine the point races with the Elite Benefits program to have the potential to earn nice rewards from the Winning Poker Network. In 2015, the network awarded the top player of the network with almost $140,000 in cash and tournament tickets via the rewards program.
