    My traffic hasn’t slowed down ( sportsbetting and casinos )
    But I find Im not getting many(any) signups/depositors :(
    Are people too preoccupied with Christmas?
    Or are the spending so much on presents/travel/entertaining that there is none left for betting? :santa2::flush:

    I think so. August, Sept and Oct. were my best months ever. November was good, but up until the last couple of days December has been somewhat slow.

    This is a slow time of the year for all as there are so many on holiday around the industry and players are a little tight on cash too. This is often when casinos/poker rooms often come out with extra bonuses too.

    Thanks gaiz,
    It makes sense I guess… people spend their $$$ at Xmas, so less $$$ for gambling.
    slotplayer, I know what you mean about Aug Sept and Oct… I wish all my months were as good as those!

    This is my worst December ever. It is always a slow month, but htis one is worse then the rest. I think that the US market is in a major slum, with credit crunc, fuel prices etc.. A large amount of my players are americans.

    It would make sense that this would be the worst December ever. Last year US players still had Neteller. Even though there are still easy poker processors casinos and sportsbooks, especially the more reputable ones, are having problems processing US payments.

    Same to report for UK Bingo sign ups as well – it seems very slow at the moment after some busy months.

    For me November was very good, December quite ok so far. I would guess December should be one of the best months, as gamblers have time to play.(holidays)

    What I generally find in Nov, Dec, Jan, is that winners cash out and pay for their xmas presents and don’t put the money back in the casino.

    I don’t see much difference in traffic, maybe a tad lower.

    I have done better in years where I dressed the site up with a christmas theme, and will go back to that next year.

    Decembers have always been slow for me too. Most people are busy with the holidays or shopping. January is usually very strong though, so when they come back they make up for lost time.

    The same here, signups are ok deposits are lower than usual.

    I hope January will be a good month though.

    And ofcourse ….. US traffic…fewer payment options for players.

    But I am happy until now.

    Yes this has been an unusually bad month. Didn’t help that my site was down for the first five days of the month thanks to the atrocity that is Fasthosts.

    It may be a fluke, but my numbers are up across the board over November…. I ain’t complaining! ;-)

    Not uncommon, people have less to spend on gambling now that any other time throughout the year.
