What's even more impressive about this 2% improvement in cash game traffic over the last 12 months is that it flies in the face of a general market downturn which has seen French market contract by 29%.

To further highlight the success of's French collection of sites, has reported a 31% drop in cash game traffic over the last 12 months. Although some of this can be attributed to more players migrating to tournaments, the site is still lagging behind its French counterpart in terms of growth.

As it stands,'s platforms in France all have this high octane games and this has helped contribute to an upswing in traffic. In contrast, hasn't yet introduced such games. As an example of the pulling power of these games, PokerStars has reported an increase in traffic after introducing Spin & Go games and that's something will be looking to capitalise on in the coming months.
