It’s not just the cryptos that cross their ATHs. Online poker sites have grown dramatically in the year 2020. Party Poker, the emblematic figure of online poker, has just begun a major transformation: the platform now accepts cryptoskills as a means of payment.
This promotional item is brought to you in collaboration with Party Poker, a poker platform regulated by the ANJ.
An industry in turmoil
In the midst of the health crisis, certain business sectors benefited from a new imposed idleness, seeing their activity and turnover explode.
This is the case of online poker, which, through impressive figures, confirms the particular appeal of the French to gambling and gambling. Indeed, the latest data released by the ANJ (National Gaming Authority), show a 31% increase in online poker players for the third quarter of 2020 alone.
It should be noted that despite this double-digit growth, it remains lower than the figures recorded during the first and second quarter of 2020.
This renewed affluence has also had an impact on the sector’s turnover. Online operators experienced a 36% growth in turnover in 2020 alone. Party Poker, one of the pioneers of online poker, decided to take advantage of this dynamic to offer a new feature to its customers: the possibility of making deposits in cryptomoney.
Party Poker enters a new era
The increased competition in the online poker environment is pushing operators to always offer differentiating options. Party Poker, a rare online platform regulated by the ANJ (National Gaming Authority formerly named ARJEL) now combines credibility and innovation thanks to the acceptance of a basket of cryptomoney.
As announced through its website, Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin and Ethereum can now be used to join tournaments and wild cash games.
Although industry observers will note that the acceptance of cryptography by online poker operators is commonplace. 99% of them are unregulated, and therefore pose a potential risk to users’ funds.
Party Poker is under the supervision of the French National Gaming Authority and therefore enjoys one of the best reputations in the French online poker ecosystem.
Cryptomoney and online poker once again prove their synergy. The Party Poker giant is taking a step ahead of its competitors and is likely to move the lines within the industry. For more information, do not hesitate to visit the partner site and take a look at the new possibilities.
