Online Poker’s Growth is Far From Over

by Lou on June 14, 2006

Poker is still growing. I saw an announcement earlier today about a site I’d never heard of before called PocoLoco. Although they only launched in January 2006, they have more than 20,000 registered players. They achieved their growth with limited marketing, primarily in Sweden and Norway.

This kind of growth shows me that the market for online poker is still far from saturated, and should continue to grow for quite some time. I think the next great market ignition will occur shortly after the US decides to follow the British model and legalize, tax, and regulate online poker in the United States. That will drive another growth spurt of new players for at least four or five years after legalization occurs.

The growth of poker is far from over, and I’m staying bullish on this. You should too.
