PartyGaming said its new poker player sign-ups for the six months to June 30 were down by 32% to 235,200. The number of active players slipped 7% to 62,600.

Poker performance since the half-year has also disappointed. New chief executive Jim Ryan said the traffic on its PartyPoker site had been “slightly softer than expected” with, on average, 993 player sign-ups and 50,800 active players a day.
