A recent winner at this year’s eGaming Industry Awards has proven the vibrancy and relevance of word of mouth marketing to online gaming.

Chances are that if you don’t know somebody that already plays there you will never have heard of HoldemPoker.com. Despite never spending a cent on traditional advertising HoldemPoker.com trumped big spending competitors such as PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker and Bodog this weekend to be chosen as the ‘Best free-play poker site of the year’.

HoldemPoker.com’s success is largely attributable to word of mouth. Michael Wahlgren, the Director of the award winning poker site welcomed the accolade, commenting, "We are very glad that the judges had the good taste to select HoldemPoker.com for the award. It is invigorating to get such strong recognition from within our industry. By listening to our player’s needs we give them every reason to recommend HoldemPoker.com".

The judges chose to highlight the strong community feel and useful educational tools available at HoldemPoker.com. Scoring the site highly for usability, the Judges commented "...the site is thoughtfully laid out with easy navigation and impressive educational content. It is a friendly site, providing an unintimidating and comfortable learning environment."

Scott Longley, editor of eGaming Review commented that the "companies nominated for awards this year included some of the biggest and brightest names in the industry". HoldemPoker.com’s success certainly qualifies it as one of the brightest and its staggering growth means it is well on the way to becoming one of the biggest. Launched a little over a year ago HoldemPoker.com now has more than 900´000 players and is still growing at around 10% a month.
