Poker Helps Bring in More Business to the Online Casino
The US is still adamantly against the online casino industry. It seems that the country refuses to support this business although they have full understanding of how much revenue online casinos bring in. A US consulting firm has recently reported that online poker will soon be the biggest online casino game, as televised games are at an all time high, and the fan-base is growing on a daily basis. With more online casino players living in the US then in any other single country in Europe, it seems that the biggest fans still reside in one of the few remaining countries that have yet to legalize the big business of the online casino.
Poker is one of America’s most popular televised events. The biggest hitters are NFL games and NASCAR racing events. But the fact still remains, that with the rise of the online casino industry, the popularity of poker has beat out programming such as NBA and MLB games. The game has had such an effect on the popularity of online casinos that many software companies are placing approximately 40% of their resources on developing new and better poker games.
The rein of the online casino poker industry is far from over. Over the past 12 months the game has had a dramatic rise not only in the US but in countries all over the world, and popularity is continuing to rise everywhere. The game of poker is brining in many new players to the online casino, thus helping to increase the business’ revenues. It is predicted that by 2010, profits will reach an astronomical $24.5 billion; which more than double the 2005 earnings for the industry.
