The game of poker is becoming a mainstream trend in the United States.
The popularity of poker apps in the USA has been on the rise in recent years, with more than 30 million US users logged into PokerStars, a major online poker platform, in the first half of 2017.
That’s nearly double the number of users who played online poker during the same period last year, according to the Interactive Poker Association of America (IPAA).
In 2016, there were just over 13 million registered players in the country.
The number of online poker players in Canada has skyrocketed, with the number more than doubling between the end of last year and the start of this year.
In 2017, there was an average of just over 1,500 players per day, according a report from online gambling tracker Flush.
According to an IPAA survey, there are about 3.2 million registered online poker users in Canada, and that number is expected to grow by about 400,000 players per month by 2020.
With the rise of online games like PokerStars and others like Bovada and SeatGeek, the US poker app market is also on the verge of a major growth phase.
The industry has experienced rapid growth in recent times, with online poker apps accounting for almost 40 per cent of all transactions and an estimated $4.5 billion in annual revenue.
The US-based industry is a $8.7 billion industry with over $6 billion in revenue.
“We’re in a huge, huge time-period,” says Michael Kibler, the CEO of online gaming company GameSpark.
“It’s like when we were a kid, you had to be in a class with the Beatles and Elvis and The Rolling Stones to be able to get into college.”
Kibzer says that there are some major factors behind the recent popularity of the US app market, including the popularity of streaming video and the growth of the social gaming industry.
“I think people want to be entertained and they want to know that they’re getting something out of their time that is unique and different,” he says.
“The way that social gaming is growing, and the way that mobile gaming is exploding, I think that it’s a really compelling opportunity for people to take a chance on new games and new players and that’s where we’re heading.”
Kiberk says that the growth in the online poker market in the U.S. is a testament to the growing popularity of online casino games.
“This is a game that has never been played on a mainstream scale and it’s just exploding, and it has been doing that since 2010,” he said.
“And it’s definitely in a position to be one of the biggest players in this market, especially in a space like this.”
The growth of social gaming has led to an influx of online game developers, and an increase in the number and quality of the games available to play.
While the number one online poker app in the world is SeatGeks, which is based in London, the popularity and quality can vary from app to app.
In the United Kingdom, there’s SeatSpark, which allows users to pay $20 to play online poker, or $20 for a monthly subscription.
In Canada, there is Bovad, which offers the option of playing online poker for $20 a month, or free to players who register their first time on the platform.
Bovads games are the only ones currently available in the UK, and only available through the SeatGeeks app, and are available in only the United Arab Emirates.
“If you look at the quality of Bovadas games, and if you look back to SeatSparks games, the quality is way higher,” Kiblers said.
Kibers also says that SeatGeys games have been around since 2010, and has been making a big comeback lately.
“SeatGeek has been playing poker games since 2010.
SeatGeaks has been a game changer,” he adds.
“In the last six to seven years, the game has grown by leaps and bounds, and now it’s finally on a level playing field with Bovader.”
Kibel says that Bovador and SeatGek have seen an explosion in popularity, and a new trend in gaming that is bringing in new players.
“As the number-one online poker site, you have a huge amount of potential for players to get involved, but also to create new games for the future,” he explains.
“Now, with all these new games coming online, it’s like the opportunity for them to really take the game to the next level and really have a chance to win a lot of money.”
In the U: “This has always been a part of the American game, there have been many people that played poker on a regular basis before this game.
They just weren’t able to compete with these newer games,” says Peter Bock, the co-founder
