Winning Poker Network unveils major software upgrade
On Wednesday the Winning Poker Network unveiled their new software, upgrading and adding many features that should give the US-friendly network a boost in the topsy-turvy world of US online poker, and may allow them to bypass their flailing competitors.
Winning has long been considered one of, if not the, best online poker rooms in terms of processing US cashouts, but they are also the owners of some of the lowest-rated online poker software. So while the network has been somewhat competitive in the US market, their software has really held them back from achieving their full potential. But that may all change after the Winning Poker Network’s latest software upgrade, or better stated, software overhaul.
The Winning Poker Network consists of several online poker sites, most notably the aforementioned Americas Cardroom (the former Doyles Room) as well as former Merge skin Black Chip Poker and True Poker.
According to an E-Mail I received from Winning Poker’s flagship poker site Americas Cardroom:
We just launched the biggest update to our online poker software in our history. Thanks to you and all the other players who have provided us with feedback over the last few years, we’ve created a groundbreaking update to our software, complete with all these features and enhancements:
* Addition of Ring Game filters
* Radically redesigned table, with new notifications and animations
* All new tournament lobby and SNG lobby
* Sit-out enhancements that enable players to sit out on one table or all tables
* Relocation of promotions, casino, and sports tabs
* Changes in the tournament states improving tournament navigation
* And more
Yesterday, on Day 1 of their new software rollout, Winning saw a noticeable jump in traffic, and had their busiest day of the month according to the daily reports available at www.pokerscout.com.
However, it probably won’t be all sunshine and roses in the beginning. If history is any kind of indicator, the chances are pretty high that the software will be a bit “buggy” over the first couple of weeks as the Winning Poker Network works out the kinks. Over the years major software overhauls such as the one Winning has just unveiled have often started off with minor complaints about this or that not working properly, and moaning and groaning from players used to the older software, but over time the bugs get worked out, and as players become acclimated to the new features the new software is generally commended.
Currently, Winning is ranked #25 by pokerscout.com, with average cash-game traffic of 290 players. This makes Winning the fourth largest US online poker provider, and considering the troubles the Merge Gaming Network and the Revolution Network have been going through (both networks have seen massive drops in traffic over the past year related to withdrawal and solvency concerns) there is an opening for a network like Winning to slide into the #2 spot behind Bodog/Bovada, and with their new software Winning is hoping to do just that.
