NEW JERSEY RESIDENTS STAY INDOORS TO AVOID SNOWLast night's snow brings windfall for online gambling site;
Telecommuters playing poker on the side.
December 6, 2005, San Jose, Costa Rica
The first major snow storm of the year took a trendy turn as online poker and other games at Nine.com helped work-skipping commuters pass the time at home while the streets were cleared.
Nine.com - a leading entertainment gaming company on the web - saw a 28 percent increase in Tri-State activity as temperatures dropped and snow forced thousands of commuters to stay home.
The most dramatic increase occurred today as many New Jersey employees opted to work from home instead of dealing with traffic disruptions and unsafe driving conditions.
"We saw a peculiar uptick in our New Jersey-area players and realized that it corresponded to the weather," said Nine.com spokesperson, Jack Abrams. "As soon as temperatures dropped, our numbers began to rise.
"My guess is that more New Jersey employees that work in New York opted to telecommute for the day, and play some poker on the side. Many accounts that are only active in the evening were being used during business hours."
The New Jersey area routinely accounts for about 10 percent of Nine.com's million-plus clientele in America, but those numbers grew substantially today when residents decided to stay indoors to escape the cold weather.
