PokerMatch, an Eastern European poker space, has risen to the top of PokerScout’s ‘Worldwide Online Poker Sites Traffic Report.’
The Ukrainian network has leapt from fourth to first in just ten days, surpassing long-time champions PokerStars (7,200), IDNPoker (5,600), and GGPoker (5,400). PokerMatch reached a 24-hour high of 10,028 players, second only to PokerStars (12,515).
‘Innovations give advantages’
According to PokerMatch, this top-spot ranking on the prestigious PokerScout rating is further evidence that “innovations give advantages” in today’s intensely competitive setting. PokerMatch’s marketing has always been motivated by the needs of the participants, according to the company.
The company’s breakthrough was also credited to clear contact with the viewer and fast reactions. PokerMatch recently released the special Miner’s Jackpot cash tables, which are played in an auto-all-in format.
Big prizes and extra gifts
Players will win big prizes, as well as extra gifts, by winning the poor beat jackpot, which has a minimum limit of 0.01 UAH (0.000036 USD).
PokerMatch’s approach to picking these prizes, such as free spins in PokerMatch Casino slot titles, deserves special recognition. According to the firm, the excitement in this as a hybrid prize dispels the misconception that poker and slot viewers don’t mix.
The new tables became an immediate success, with over 7,000 people playing at the same time. As a result of the campaign, overall traffic on PokerMatch nearly tripled, according to the company.
Ruslan Bangert, CEO of PokerMatch International, had said 10 days ago in response to Pokermatch’s fourth-place finish: “Ukraine is not a rich country and people here don’t have high incomes. The Miner’s Jackpot tables are a thank-you to our loyal audience who can’t afford to play at expensive stakes at the moment.”
Unprecedented breakthrough in the rankings
On now hitting the top spot he added: “This promotion was originally designed for a specific part of the audience of the room who are not rich but loyal, and as a result, it has allowed the company to make an unprecedented breakthrough in the rankings. We are grateful to all the players who supported our idea. Together we’ve made history!”
In these trying times, Bangert affirmed his conviction that poker should not be confined to one place. He concluded: “At PokerMatch, we’re constantly trying to invent something new and attract attention. We believe that our company is an industry leader in this area.”
After PartyPoker (2006), PokerStars (2007-2021), and IDNPoker for a few weeks in 2020, PokerMatch has been just the fourth occupant of the number one spot in the last 15 years.
