How will poker rooms celebrate Chinese New Year?

Author: Vargoso Published: 25.01.22

In a week, most Southeast Asian countries will celebrate the Lunar New Year. We will analyze the impact of this event on the online poker industry in this article.

How will poker rooms celebrate Chinese New Year?


The Spring Festival, as this holiday is called in China, falls on February 1 this year, but it is not limited to a single day. For example, all Chinese citizens will have holidays from January 31 to February 6. Hence, we can expect that local poker fans will be more active at the tables.

The first week of February promises an increase in traffic at all poker rooms, where representatives of China and other countries of Southeast Asia play, especially during early evening hours (CET).

Considering the top poker rooms, this will primarily affect GGNetwork, some PPPoker clubs, and the Chinese trinity: Red Dragon PokerPokerTimeCity of Poker.

The latest feature the following tables during the Asian peak time on weekdays (more tables can be spotted during the weekend):
