The recent increase in the amount of time people spend online has brought about a resurgence in online poker. Prior to lockdowns, 40 million people (around 6.8 percent of the total adult population) played poker regularly. Now that these people can no longer play poker at friends’ houses, at card clubs or in casinos, online poker is the clear choice for those looking for some action, fun and stress-relief.
Since social distancing and lockdowns took effect, online poker playing has increased by 43 percent. New players are also eager to get into the game, with first-time poker players increasing by 255 percent in the same period.
The leading online poker room, Global Poker, is ready to meet this demand by offering a special event designed specifically for players who are bored at home. The Global Poker Home Series, dubbed “the world’s biggest home game,” launched March 30.
This massive event—the biggest one Global Poker has ever held, to date—guarantees over Sweeps Cash (SC) 2,000,000, with SC5000,000 guaranteed on the final table. Unlike many other options, Global Poker offers the chance to win cash prizes, making this an even more enjoyable and exciting option for serious players.
“As long as thrill seekers are staying at home, Global Poker will give them the chance to find adventure excitement, and camaraderie through online poker,” said Global Poker General Manager David Lyons.
Poker journalist Nick Jones recently highlighted the dramatic increase of online poker players. According to his research, online poker activity is on track to beat the record set five years ago, with an average of 45,000 players simultaneously flocking to the virtual tables. This trend will likely continue, as more players wisely choose to say home during this global pandemic. Source: @pokerprojones
Running March 30–April 26, the Global Poker Home Series will provide plenty of action to keep house-bound poker players entertained for the next four weeks. And with the site’s Rattlesnake Open beginning May 4, players won’t have to wait long before more big tournaments come back into town.

FanDuel Casino Announces Updated Marketing Campaign and Continued Game Enhancement
FanDuel Casino announced the second installment of its “Winning is Undefeated” ad campaign across TV, social, and contextual OOH. FanDuel Casino is also premiering a new exclusive game, Fort Knox Cleopatra. The base game, IGT’s Cleopatra, is one of the casino industry’s most recognizable slot titles and ranks among FanDuel Casino’s top performers. IGT PlayDigital’s Fort Knox Cleopatra will soon be available exclusively on FanDuel Casino.
The new creative campaign, developed in partnership with agency Mischief @ No Fixed Address, ranks the amazing feelings of life’s tiny wins while reminding us that the ultimate feeling is winning, with FanDuel Casino. The new spots will air in key FanDuel Casino markets including New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. To help offer players more ways to win, new FanDuel Casino customers will get 50 bonus spins when signing up and making their first deposit. FanDuel Casino’s Free-to-Play Reward Machine will give players the chance to bring home the #1 feeling…winning.
“At FanDuel Casino we are all about celebrating that unmatched feeling of victory. Our latest campaign doubles down on how the feeling of winning outranks all else from successfully avoiding your neighbor to catching your car keys in one hand. With our daily free-to-play game Reward Machine and our newly launched welcome offer – 50 bonus spins – our players have more chances than ever to experience that feeling of winning for themselves,” Daniele Phillips, Vice President of Brand Strategy at FanDuel Casino, said.
“Researchers have identified 34,000 unique feelings. But any list needs a #1. So everyone got in touch with our deepest emotions, then we ranked them. These findings were the basis of the campaign. You can argue with our faux-scientific order, but you can’t argue with the fact that winning is the best feeling there is,” Pete Lefebvre, Creative Director at Mischief @ No Fixed Address, said.
Along with the campaign, FanDuel Casino will be the exclusive home of the Fort Knox Cleopatra game. Fort Knox Cleopatra adds a new progressive jackpot mechanic that triggers bigger prizes to the existing classic game features. The game offers players multiple ways to win, via The Cleopatra Bonus and the new Fort Knox Bonus. Players can trigger the Cleopatra Bonus by collecting three Sphinx Scatter symbols, offering them 15 free spins where all wins are tripled. The Fort Knox Bonus, which can trigger randomly on any base game spin, features open safes full of cash and coins that can unlock a progressive jackpot win.
“Offering our players the ultimate choice of games is a top priority for us, and bringing IGT PlayDigital’s Fort Knox Cleopatra to FanDuel Casino helps us continue to provide the best iGaming product experience on the market. As we continue to introduce new players to FanDuel Casino, we are excited to bring a game users know and love with a new spin and more prizes, an ideal combination to engage all players,” Asaf Noifeld, Managing Director at FanDuel Casino, said.
“We’re thrilled to bring one of IGT PlayDigital’s most popular games exclusively to FanDuel Casino with the new Fort Knox Cleopatra, featuring graphics and sound effects we know users will love. As FanDuel Casino continues to grow, we look forward to bringing Fort Knox Cleopatra to new and existing players,” Gil Rotem, IGT President of iGaming, said.
Holland Casino Identifies New Groningen Casino Site
Holland Casino has chosen Business Park Ter Borch as the new location for its Groningen casino. Holland Casino selected the location at the gateway to Groningen for its accessibility and construction opportunities. Business park Ter Borch, on the edge of the municipality of Tynaarlo, offers Holland Casino the best opportunities to build a casino that meets the company’s architectural and sustainability requirements. Moreover, the location at the gateway to Groningen is easily accessible for guests and there is ample parking.
CEO Petra de Ruiter said: “We are happy that the decision has now been made. If the Tynaarlo municipal council is as enthusiastic as the board of Holland Casino, we can enter the period of planning and construction. I’m looking forward to that and especially to the moment when the new Holland Casino Groningen is open. That is not only good news for our guests, but also for our employees.
“They will soon be able to optimally welcome guests from a new building and offer the hospitality that can be expected from us.”
Spatial planning councilor Jurryt Vellinga of the municipality of Tynaarlo said: “The location makes sense because of the good accessibility and the space that the business park offers. For us it is a sign that the municipality of Tynaarlo and the region are still popular for companies. This location offers employment opportunities and is a great boost for tourism in our municipality.”
Attention has also been paid to the former Holland Casino location on Gedempte Kattendiep in Groningen. The casino was destroyed in a fire in 2017, with Holland Casino operating a temporary facility since 2018.
“Holland Casino offers the municipality of Groningen every cooperation to ensure that something beautiful comes back to the city center. We are grateful to everyone involved for all the cooperation and support we have received in recent years. We are very grateful to Groningen and Tynaarlo for the efforts made to find a suitable location,” Ms. de Ruiter said.
The new branch of Holland Casino, Holland Casino Groningen, is expected to open in 2027.
