Flopomania Draws in Record Numbers in 888poker Debut
Following in the popular footsteps of its fast-fold SNAP Poker and hyper-fast BLAST SNGs, 888poker has launched another innovative game into the poker world – Flopomania.
It's a fast-paced new No-Limit Hold'em game where every hand goes straight to the flop.
Its purpose is to create more and faster action and it's already delivered with several records in 888poker’s online history broken over its debut weekend.
Flopomania Reels 'Em In
It seems that Flopomania struck a chord with a big set of online players.
Compared to the day BLAST went online Flopomania attracted 50% more players to the tables. That also translates into an 11% increase of overall players on the website compared to any regular Sunday.
In fact last Sunday marked the day with the most active cash game tables of the whole year on 888poker.
“The first day of Flopomania was a blast, no pun intended,” said three-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Dominik Nitsche.
“The timing was perfect as players logged on to play online tournaments like the Mega Deep and Whale and had the opportunity to check out a new game - one with a unique twist.
"I know I had a lot of fun going straight to the flop and putting my skills to the test.”
More Hands Per Hour
Sunday also saw more flops in cash games than any other day in 888poker’s history -- which isn't exactly surprising as Flopomania is a game that literally begins on the flop.
More significantly, though, the average number of hands played per hour on any given Flopomania table was 15% higher than on regular 6-max cash game tables.
If you haven’t heard of Flopomania yet, it’s essentially NLHE without the pre-flop play. All players at the table get their two hole cards and then the flop is dealt straight away.
From then on the betting rounds work just as you know it from regular Hold’em. As everybody goes to the flop with any two given cards there's an Ante that all players have to bring in.
So there's more money in the pot when the action starts and there are much more random hands to play against – or with.
