Poker Industry Report

The Global Poker Index is very proud to present you with the Inaugural Edition of the Quarterly Poker Industry Report. This Report is the product of a long-term vision we initiated 8 months ago. One of our intentions was to develop tools that help the poker industry to have a better knowledge of itself. It is our corporate belief this is the only way for the poker industry to re-invent itself.
We offer our Inaugural Edition at no-cost and will soon be accepting requests for paid-subscriptions, to follow these trends. A lot of information is already available in this free trial, but this is just the beginning in our exploration of poker trends. Our team of experts are hard at work developing new and expanded content for our next Edition due out in August.
The Inaugural Edition provides:
- 36 pages of information on global and regional tournament dollars, players, and events
- Data from over 12,000 poker tournaments
- Information on tour operations; including World Series of Poker, European Poker Tour, and World Poker Tour, etc.
- Total live tournament dollars and players at venues; including Rio, Borgata, Commerce, San Remo, etc.
- Statistics on the largest state and country markets in the US and Europe
- An Appendix containing detailed information on nearly all live tournament markets worldwide regardless of size
