The company, with its 49 million registered members globally and an additional 25,000 online gamers logged in per time frame; has helped achieving the name it has today owing to its high standards. Over the last decade the company has surpassed its own records, latest of them to be broken being the 2012 Spring Championship of Online Poker. The SCOOP festival has earned the name of being the biggest ever online poker festival in history with over 50,000 players and $65 million in prize money.
Although The Great Place to Work decides its winners based on a number of criteria; they believe a company is truly the best place to work in if the employees say it is.
