Duplicate Poker's skill-focused approach to poker seems to be catching on as the gaming site recently hit the impressive 250,000 player mark.
Because of its emphasis on skill, DuplicatePoker.com is the only online poker room that is 100% legal in the U.S. The site launched publicly in 2007 and now has active players on five continents and has been growing at a rate of 20% per month.
"DuplicatePoker.com has quickly gained global appeal and poker players at all levels are playing this new game and developing new strategies for winning," said Pinhas Romik, founder and CEO of Duplicate Poker. "Our revenues have increased six-fold since the public launch and we expect the game's popularity to continue its upward trajectory."
Duplicate Poker pioneered the concept of having players sit in the same position at different tables while being dealt the same cards, thus eliminating the luck aspect of poker. The format has been gaining a solid following among poker players.
"Duplicate Poker has the potential to be as popular as Texas Hold'em, Omaha or Seven-Card Stud," said Romik. "Yet unlike these games that have uncertain origins, we have patented the Duplicate Poker process and it has the potential to be marketed, licensed and monetized globally. Our legal status in the U.S. offers a competitive advantage."
