So let’s see… 3% minimum. That puts the minimum investment at around $7,500. But remember last year Sam Trickett won $2.1 million for taking down the $250k Super High Roller so that works out to be a massive return on your investment.
Worried about your investment? Mercier’s results in High Rollers are pretty incredible:
$100k EPT Grand Final
$100k Five Diamond
$25k NAPT Mohegan Sun
$20k EPT London
At that rate can you afford NOT to get a piece of J-Merc?
3) Researcher Estimates Nevada Online Poker Revenue at $18m
Well according to a story by the Online Poker Report Nevada will generate around $18m in annual revenue from regulated online poker.
The numbers come from Adam Krejcik of Eilers Research. Right now there are only two sites operating in Nevada, that would be WSOP.com and Ultimate Poker, but Krejcik doesn’t believe additional sites will increase the overall market.
While not earth-shattering, $18 million is still $18 million.
There is one factor that could skew the numbers significantly in 2014: the WSOP. Last year Ultimate Poker had just opened and WSOP.com hadn’t even launched yet.
It remains to be seen how big an effect WSOP.com running qualifiers from the biggest poker tournament in the world will have on the burgeoning online poker industry in Nevada.
