October 3, 2008 - Despite the threats of an international economic crisis - 'cause, remember, the world revolves around the U.S. - as well as the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (another thing we can thank America for), the online poker sector is doing pretty good for itself. In fact, online poker activity and traffic had actually increased during the month of September.

As reported by Market-Pulse, which does real-time tracking of the online poker industry, internet traffic at the King (or should I say, "Celebrity") of Poker Rooms - Poker Stars - was up an impressive 43%, while that other popular site - Full Tilt Poker - was up by 30%.

If we stop to take a look at the traffic in other poker rooms, it becomes obvious that U.S. citizens are not giving up their free right to play online poker, not to mention their right to spend their money however they want to. While traffic was up at other poker rooms, it doesn't come close to the numbers that Poker Stars has been seeing.

Full Tilt averaged little over 8,000 players a day, while Poker Stars monopolized the bulk of traffic with over 18,600 players a day, peaking the leading boards on Sunday, September 28th with 21,340 players logged on at once (There's a good reason why this is the case - and it's the same reason why Poker Stars is the only poker room reviewed here at Online Casino Suite. Read our Poker Stars Review for more information).

Titan Poker was up 2% with a daily average of little over 5,000 players, the fledgling Party Poker was up 3% with nearly 4,300 players a day, and Mansion Poker (which recently joined Playtech's iPoker Network) saw the most growth of the non-U.S. facing bunch at 12% and averaging nearly 4,200 players.
