Owner of Pokerstars/Full Tilt Poker Reveals Milestone in Latest Earnings ReportPublished on 2016-03-17 16:39:00
Amaya Inc., which is the owner of both Pokerstars and Full Tilt Poker, released their Q4/2015 and FY2015 earnings reports earlier this week.
One of the more interesting data points contained in the report - the company revealed that their aggregate customer registrations had increased by 1.99 million to roughly 99 million at the end of the fourth quarter of 2015, and that this figure had topped the 100 million registration mark roughly 2 1/2 months into the first quarter of 2016.
Amaya's two main properties, Pokerstars and Full Tilt Poker, have not been in existence for that long. Pokerstars first started offering real money poker in December of 2001, while Full Tilt Poker was opened in June of 2004. Since that time, the two companies have combined for over 100 million customer registrations, which is quite an impressive feat and speaks to the exploding popularity of poker over the past decade and a half.
In addition, these numbers have come despite the fact that the two companies have had to deal with being tossed out of multiple countries during their histories, namely the United States. The 100 million customer registration number would obviously be considerably bigger if Pokerstars and Full Tilt Poker hadn't been forced to pull out of the United States after "Black Friday" in 2011.
In their earnings report, Amaya, Inc. also revealed that the company had 2.4 million real-money active unique players during the fourth quarter of 2015, and that the net yield for each player was $153.
While Amaya Inc. has certainly had their share of troubles over the past year or so, there is no denying the fact that they remain phenomenally popular throughout the world.
