Based on revenue figures released by the state of New Jersey for May 2018 poker activity, online poker operators under the Caesar license realized 42% revenue growth, putting it ahead of PokerStars for the first time (source: Pokerfuse). The combined network operating under the Caesar license is WSOP.com and 888poker.
The combined network of WSOP.com and 888poker collected over $770K in rake and tournament fees. PokerStars (operating under the Resorts Casino license) collected $716,668.
Coming in 3rd for the month of May was Borgata with over $442K in poker revenue.
Year-over-year the WSOP.com/888 network grew nearly 42% last month. Overall the market generated just under $2 million (source: Pokerfuse).
SHARED LIQUIDITY IN A REGULATED SETTING
Back on April 30th players from Nevada, NJ and Delaware within the WSOP.com and 888poker network were combined to form the 1st tri-state online poker pool within the history of the regulated market. Simply put, players from all 3 states could play at the same tables for the first time in a regulated setting.
History: The WSOP/888poker network became a multi-state network when 888poker combined its player pool in Delaware with the player pool of WSOP.com (which runs on the 888 platform) in Nevada.
Future: Once Pennsylvania launches online poker, PokerStars and Bogata will have an opportunity to form a multi-state pool for their players. Of course, this is all dependent upon PA regs allowing the player pool to join the Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement.
