Delaware and Nevadas compact has been effective since Tuesday - Liquidity sharing
The online poker compact between Delaware and Nevada now goes from project paper to reality. Since Tuesday evening, Delawarean poker players have been able to access a dozen tables instead of two or three in the past. Hence, participation traffic rises from 25 to more than 300. Early on Wednesday, 100 players were connected on the new interstate network according PokerScout. Traffic on the All American Poker Network (AAPN) Nevada and Delaware hit a peak of 319 players overnight. Needless to say, such figure is a promising sign for the operators. According to Caesars Interactive Entertainments Seth Palansky, the interstate compact is still set on a pretty soft-launch mode, but there is a clear improvement in traffic. It is worth mentioning that CIE and 888 are currently awaiting the go-aheads from the states.
In comparison with Delaware and its truly promising traffic, the impact of this pool-sharing deal in Nevada will be of gradual pace. Actually, the expected participation rate in Delaware is 40 to 50 average players, while it would only see about 10 players per million residents in recent past. Despite all this, Nevada is home to an active pool of players, and this liquidity sharing agreement with Delaware is expected to boost the trend, especially on peak hours. With the upcoming wsops cash games and Sit & Go poker tournaments, the peak traffic between both states is expected to reach an average of 200 players, which could increase from 400 to 500.
