Time of the beginners
You may have noticed that poker rooms have started shifting towards beginner players? We believe this trend will only get stronger. Some real money online poker sites started blocking statistics tracking software like PokerTracker and Holdem Manager, some have changed their bonuses to fit beginners more and improved their software. Also, features like Achievements Rewards and Social Sharing have been introduced and are becoming more popular.
What is it for you? Best CPA deals bring you up to $200 for every player. So become a guide to the beginner players. Teach them the rules of different games, help them build their bankrolls and show them different poker rooms. Beginner players usually don’t have massive bankrolls and rarely an e-wallet. So, give them more no deposit bonuses (like 888Poker’s $88 FREE, $9 FREE at Bounty Poker), freeroll opportunities to earn some free cash and an e-wallet like Skrill that offers $20 FREE for your every player.
Poker on the go
If you thought mobile poker was popular in 2013, just wait. Some real money poker sites have finished their mobile platforms in the end of 2013, some are still working on extending features. Not to mention technological advances that give the green light to the ideas that could not be realized before.
Let’s face it, even coming into 2014 not all mobile platforms are created equal. Some allow deposits and cashouts, others enable to play tournaments and maybe even fast-fold poker. Find out what your players want and be ready to offer them that. By the way, in 2013 PKR Poker earned Best Poker Mobile Platform award at eGR Awards.
Even though it is not actually a trend, 2013 was a breakthrough year for Open Face Chinese poker. It’s a fun game that made poker pros go crazy in 2012 while last year it became more accessible to beginners, as well. There is a new poker room called Bounty Poker that offers $9 FREE to your players and 40% revenue share deal for you. Maybe Open Face Chinese Poker will not be the biggest hit of 2014, but it will gain more popularity. Introduce this game to your players and maybe they’ll love it!
The not-so-sad story of U.S.
And lastly, make sure to keep an eye on U.S. online poker market in 2014. It does look promising, right? As you know, last year online poker make a historical comeback to U.S. and currently is running on three states – Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey. It’s hard to predict will any new states launch online poker in 2014 but as the market move forward, more opportunities arise. As far as 2014 is concerned, we expect to partner with certain U.S. poker rooms and if everything goes according to a plan, offer you some new exciting poker deals.
Your options don’t end with online poker. There are online casinos, sports betting, binary options market that have their own advantages. Make sure to mix it up in 2014 and be prepared to grab an opportunity the moment it appears. We promise, it’s going to be an exciting year!
