Full Tilt cash game player traffic has fallen to a seven-day average of 3,100, knocking the site down to fourth place as PartyPoker and the iPoker Network took over the second and third place rankings, respectively.
PartyPoker shows a seven-day average of 3,300 cash game players as of this writing, while iPoker players are tallied at 3,150 by PokerScout. Full Tilt enjoyed a second place ranking almost exclusively since relaunching about 4 and 1/2 months ago. But player traffic began dwindling after the Deal Me In Bonus expired three weeks after the relaunch. That bonus added at least $200 to each player’s account and up to $600 to some players depending on their volume of play.
With Full Tilt offering one of the lowest rakeback reward programs in the industry, cash game traffic has seen almost a steady weekly decline as a result. However, tournament action is still quite popular at the site, as FTOPS XXII began yesterday with a $240 + $16 Irish Poker tourney as Event #1. A total of 38 tournaments will be played over fifteen days, with a combined prize pool of $10 million.
