A review of PartyPoker.com
The only problem with PartyPoker.com is trying not to go over-the-top with all its good points – the fun feel of the site really is infectious. Already one of the largest and most popular poker rooms in the world, its recent software overhaul has made PartyPoker even more commendable. Boasting the whole poker gaming repertoire as well as slick graphics and busy, competitive tables, PartyPoker has just kept adding to the fun.
New features – poker software
The new Lobby ‘Quicksearch’ function has made it easier to find an appropriate table, while ‘Quick Seat’ lets you take your place at that table in 3 seconds. The improved navigation system gives you much more control over your game and account, while the new-look table enhances the general poker experience with customisable player imagery and easy-to-use action areas.
There are a few other little quirks too. The Bad Beat jackpot prize total on the home page keeps increasing on a real-time money calculator – a good incentive for loose play.
New player heaven – what a bonus
If you’re new to poker, PartyPoker is a great place to start. It has a comprehensive and welcoming New Player Zone which consists of a poker school and useful recommendations as to which games you should start with and tutorials for improvement. There is a really good ‘Rookies Only’ Bankroll Builder freeroll which helps you test your new techniques, and carries a tasty monthly prize pool of $30,000.
The PartyPoker Super Sign-up bonus currently stands at 100% up to $500 – one of the more generous bonuses around at the moment.
Tournaments & Promotions
Unsurprisingly PartyPoker has a vast range of scheduled and sit & go tournaments and they really make them fun.
Interesting games like The Challenge of The Gladiator where you have to earn a minimum of 10 PartyPoints every day for a minimum of 10 days over the competition period (usually 1 month), mean you get addicted to playing as all points convert to prize money at the end of the competition.
WSOP prize packages across loads of games from regular qualifiers at $2 buy-ins to freerolls, sees everyone get a chance to get a piece of the 2009 WSOP action. And then there’s the Monthly Million where the prize pool of a cool $1,000,000 calls to you from behind a tiny $1 stake. These tournaments start on the first Sunday of every month and are predictably very popular.
Other exciting tournaments include the Sports Stars Challenge – a televised tourney with an $84,000 prize pool - but more notably, you get to play against sporting legends like Frank Leboeuf, Phil Taylor, Andy Goode and many more.
You can’t help but tell your mates
If you weren’t already shouting about PartyPoker.com, the $100 recommend-a-friend bonus should do it. You earn $100 and your friend gets $50 when they sign up. And why shouldn’t they? It’s well worth sharing the fun of this poker room.Visit Party Poker
