The Highest Online Poker Participation Rate in the U.S. Goes To?

According to the weekly PokerScout Scouting Report, a state you probably wouldn't expect led the U.S. in terms of online poker participation rate at 0.97% before Black Friday. The state we're looking for: Read more: [www.pocketfives.com]

I am not sure why Poker Scout is making such a fuss over New Hampshire. It is a very small state and is ranked 43rd based on population.

But, as usual, you can’t get any honest reporting about poker or poker sites anywhere on the internet; it is all gambling hype to draw gamblers into the game.

Population of New Hampshire is 1.3 million and 43rd in rank by population.

Population of Nevada is 2.8 million

New Hampshire has no particular law banning online poker, but it does not have a licensed internet poker site like Nevada’s Ultimate Bet.

“Gambling has never been truly embraced by the lawmakers of New Hampshire. And despite the pro-gambling ways of neighboring states, New Hampshire prefers to stay out of the fray.”

“Anti-gambling laws were in place from the 1800s in New Hampshire. When the people of the state built a thoroughbred race track in 1906, law enforcement shut it down three days later. It wasn't until 1933 that pari-mutuel betting was legalized and bettors could return to the reopened track.”

“The state then instituted a sweepstakes-style lottery in 1964, the first state to do so, but that was to be the extent of the Granite State's leadership in the gaming arena.”

As far as licensed operating internet poker sites in Nevada, Ultimate bet is still the only one; and, it rankings on Poker Scout keep falling. It started out being ranked 34th and now is ranked 37th with a 7-day average of 139 players and a 24 hour peak of 274. This morning at 8 AM it had 33 cash players. Despite the fact that it is declining and hardly anyone plays at Ultimate Bet, the poker reporters are reporting that it is a huge success and growing. I don't know if these reporters are just in denial or are just pushing more hype because they have some vested interest in internet poker.

Even if 500 Nevadians played 24-7 at Ultimate Bet, that would only be 0.000357 or 0.0357% of the total adult population of Nevada assuming that 50% of Nevada's population is 21 or older.

These low Ultimate Bet numbers in Nevada demonstrate that few Nevadians are interested in playing online internet poker at the first license operating online poker site in Nevada.

I doubt that Caesars or any other large gambling enterprises will want to jump into the internet poker site market in Nevada anytime soon. If Caesars did jump in, it would probably reduce the traffic at Ultimate bet by at least one-half.

I think the big players, e.g., Caesars in Nevada are hoping that Nevada legalizes all internet gambling and sport book betting; then they will jump in. I used to respect Nevada’s Gambling Commission; now I think they are greedy dishonest slugs who are probably in bed with various nefarious criminal types like Frank Fertitta.

The fact is that the number of internet poker players in the USA and the world for that matter is declining; it will never be at the levels it was in 2006 again.

It will be very unlikely that interstate licensed internet poker will ever materialize in America. Hades, there are 6 states (i.e., Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi, Nevada, and Utah) that do not have lottery laws, e.g., Mega Millions. There are 12 states and DC that don't allow land based casino, including Indian casinos. There are 20 states that only allow land based Indian casinos.
