NEW LOOK AND ONLINE POKER FROM SPORTSBOOK.COM

Revamped site to offer poker on a brand new platform

There's a prominent notice on the new Sportsbook.com website that this successful and long-established US-facing online casino, horse and sportsbetting operation is "no longer owned or endorsed by the Sportingbet plc group" - a sombre reminder that the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act forced the respected British publicy listed Sportingbet to relinquish its Sportsbook subsidiary for a token $1 only weeks ago.

The time has been well spent on a highly professional revamp of the site and the introduction of a brand new online poker room on as yet unidentified no-download software. This opens at the end of this week in Beta format and will undoubtedly attract more American players appreciative of the inclusive position this private company has adopted toward US gamblers.

Twice named the "Best US Sports Book" by the industry magazine (2005, 2006), eGaming Review, Sportsbook.com has been a leader in the online gaming industry since the pioneering days and shows no sign of slowing down now despite the difficult business conditions in the USA.

The new poker service is likely to start with a bang with the first of 57 nightly freerolls that will run every evening at 9:00 PM EST and give pokerheads a chance to try out the new software for themselves.Sportsbook.com has promised nightly cash prizes, and an opportunity to win a tempting $100 000 grand prize in an exotic location.

The top 10 finishers in each of the 57 freerolls will win cash prizes and also be entered into the online “Semi-final Freeroll” which will take place on January 20. The top 50 finishers in this 570 member tournament will all be 'in the money' and those who make the top ten win an all expenses paid trip to the Sportsbook.com Super Bowl Party in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where they will participate in the live $100 000 winner-takes-all finals.

The beta launch of the new poker platform has an additional treat in the form of easy-on-the-eye Carrie Ann Stroup as the dealer. Contestants can enter the Sportsbook.com Black Friday $100,000 Freeroll immediately. The Black Friday $100 000 Freeroll is one of several ways Sportsbook.com is giving members a chance to win $100 000, including a weekly $100 000 Perfect Parlay Challenge and the $100 000 Black Friday Trivia Challenge.

Taking a more general and statistical look at the impact of the UIGEA on US online poker, members on the poker message board 2+2 have been tracking and calculating the changes since the UIGEA passed, based on the Pokersitescout data.

The latest dynamic data show that PokerStars is up 2961 over 6 weeks, Full Tilt is up 2261, and Party Poker is down 3597. The total number of players at peak times across all rooms this week was 59 885 compared to a peak of 69 671 in September, leading to a conclusion that there was possibly 10 000 less players in total.

I don't see how this is going to go smoothly, unless they're going to open up beta testing and allow poker signups either today or tomorrow. Black Friday is in 2 days.

edit: Dirty Pool. Some "FREEROLL". What BS. They can take their "FREEROLL", and "FREE TRIVIA CHALLENGE" and shove it up their ...well, you know where. Talk about false advertising. They say jack sh!t about any qualifying bets to play in the freeroll/participate in the trivia contest in that article.
