Online Poker at All Time High
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The recent increase in the amount of time people spend online has brought about a resurgence in online poker. Prior to lockdowns, 40 million people (around 6.8 percent of the total adult population) played poker regularly. Now that these people can no longer play poker at friends’ houses, at card clubs or in casinos, online poker is the clear choice for those looking for some action, fun and stress-relief.

Since social distancing and lockdowns took effect, online poker playing has increased by 43 percent. New players are also eager to get into the game, with first-time poker players increasing by 255 percent in the same period.

The leading online poker room, Global Poker, is ready to meet this demand by offering a special event designed specifically for players who are bored at home. The Global Poker Home Series, dubbed “the world’s biggest home game,” launched March 30.

This massive event—the biggest one Global Poker has ever held, to date—guarantees over Sweeps Cash (SC) 2,000,000, with SC5000,000 guaranteed on the final table. Unlike many other options, Global Poker offers the chance to win cash prizes, making this an even more enjoyable and exciting option for serious players.

“As long as thrill seekers are staying at home, Global Poker will give them the chance to find adventure excitement, and camaraderie through online poker,” said Global Poker General Manager David Lyons.

Poker journalist Nick Jones recently highlighted the dramatic increase of online poker players. According to his research, online poker activity is on track to beat the record set five years ago, with an average of 45,000 players simultaneously flocking to the virtual tables. This trend will likely continue, as more players wisely choose to say home during this global pandemic. Source: @pokerprojones

Running March 30–April 26, the Global Poker Home Series will provide plenty of action to keep house-bound poker players entertained for the next four weeks. And with the site’s Rattlesnake Open beginning May 4, players won’t have to wait long before more big tournaments come back into town.

When you think about global volleyball there is not more prominent federation to work with than Polish, which represents the world champions men team!

Microgaming’s WowPot jackpot has been hit for a massive €17,529,047.11 (£15,183,085.96), marking the first-ever Mega win on the progressive jackpot.

On 14 April 2021, a 32Red Casino player in the UK became the first to land the top WowPot jackpot after placing a £0.80 bet on Book of Atem: WowPot. The player is one of 93 EUR millionaires to be created on Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network, which has paid out more than €1.3 billion across all games and jackpots to date.

Not only is the eight-figure sum the largest WowPot win of all time, eclipsing the €1,123,513.15 Major win triggered on Sisters of Oz: WowPot in March 2021, but it is also the third-largest award in the history of Microgaming’s progressive jackpot network. As with all wins on the network, the jackpot prize has been paid to the player in a lump sum.

Launched network-wide in September 2020, Egyptian-themed Book of Atem: WowPot was created exclusively for Microgaming by All41 Studios and was the second title to feature the four-tiered WowPot progressive jackpot. A total of €23 million has since been awarded through the game across all jackpot tiers, with one winner scooping a Major jackpot of €998,876.35 in March 2021.
