This month we have analysed the number of deals played every day on Funbridge. The result is pretty impressive and that is putting it mildly.

Indeed, we have reached the million mark with 1,003,729 deals played in a day on 6 July 2015.

The following game modes have seen the highest number of deals played: series (460,000 deals a day on average), practice (200,000 deals a day), challenges (150,000 deals a day) and tournaments of the day (140,000 deals a day).
