London, England (PRWEB) January 23, 2009
DevilfishPoker.com is today celebrating its position as the leading brand on the world's fastest growing poker network and its elevation into the premier league of liquidity with the news that its network, Entraction, has grown 108 percent in the past year and is now ranked 4th globally of open networks and 10th globally of all poker networks.
The ranking, conducted by PokerScout.com, is based on active cash game players and DevilfishPoker.com, as the most visible brand on the Entraction network, is delighted with the progress it has made since relaunching in May 2008.
Paul Barnes, CEO of Devilfish Gaming Plc, said, "The growth in liquidity over the last 6 to 8 months has been quite spectacular, with our network moving from 15th to 10th position worldwide. This, coupled with a dazzling array of new features and games released during the period, clearly validates our choice of gaming platform and enables us to offer our players a best-of-breed wide-ranging branded product."
Liquidity on online poker websites is a key cornerstone for stability and growth in the online poker sector as indicated in a recent report from Daniel Stewart & Company.
Author of the report, analyst James Hollins said, "The issue of poker site liquidity has emerged rapidly over the past 12 months as the industry has reached a level of maturity whereby a number of consumers recognize the benefits of playing on a site with a diverse player base.
"The virtuous spiral then kicks in for the most liquid sites as these operators generate the highest levels of rake/cash to invest in the highest quality technology and the most marketing, attracting users of other sites and new players to the industry."
