About

It’s a long time coming but by writing this PartyPoker review we have definitely unearthed a gem in the online poker industry. Founded in 1997, and licensed in Gibraltar, PartyGaming has grown to be one of the most prominent companies offering their players, Poker  

Software and Playability:

Developed in house and benefiting from over ten years of fine tuning and development, the PartyPoker Software has to be one of the top on the market.  Its refreshing to visit a table that is clear and easy to use. There are to many examples of over complication as poker rooms try and differentiate their product but PartyPoker appear to have a decent balance. The action buttons are large and clear, hand history is easy to navigate and the simple player data is set around the table in a neat and concise way.

The PartyPoker Software allows the play to be as simple or as complicated as required as there is an easy to use filtering system. For those that would like to have more than one table on the go, this is now possible from the screen you are in without having to navigate back to the lobby. All round the experience is a joy.

Welcome Bonus:

All new players to PartyPoker are entitled to a  100% deposit match up to £500.   By playing in GBP you will be required to earn 9 times the bonus amount to achieve full bonus. If this is not your level, not to worry as PartyPoker will pay out the bonus in 10 chunks so you can always achieve some level of bonus.   

Earning Player Points:

Earning “PartyPoints” can be done on all real money cash games. It is very simply, two points for every $1 contributed to the rake. For example, you are in a hand with 4 other players. The pot is sitting at $80 meaning that the rake is $4. You would be awarded 2 player points. 

While this may seem like a lot to a new player, it’s the sheer number of hands that you play in a game that really boost the points accrued.
PartyPoints can be used in the store or for tournament entry.

Games

Games and People:

By their own admission, Partypoker have restricted the number of Poker games that they have on offer. This is a good thing as they offer excellent versions of the most popular games on the planet; Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, 7 Card Stud and 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo.

Within the PartyPoker software you will find an excellent poker academy offering you, strategy and tips for each of the games on show. There is a huge number of players at Party and we found good games with plenty of opportunity at all levels. For the new player this is a dream.  

Tournaments and Promotions:

PartyPoker offer players two forms of tournament; Scheduled tourneys or Sit and Go. The latter are running 24/7 and there is usually a large pool of players offering the full range of poker variants. Scheduled tournaments can be from as little as $1 leading up to the Monthly Million. Daily qualifiers start at $1 and on the first Sunday of each month there will be $1,000,000 in the prize pool.

There are regular promotions happening at PartyPoker and they are hot on the offers for Live Poker entry. Packages include the World Poker Tour, Aussie Millions (a nice little holiday!) and the WSOP. They have the Sit & Go Leaderboard which will allow you to claim up to $40,000 each month just by playing! With over $6million guaranteed each month, plenty of free rolls, Bad beat jackpots and Rookie only Bank roll builders, PartyPoker really does have the lot.  

Customer Service and Security:

Always a key part of a Poker-Shark.co.uk poker room review, PartyPoker seemed on the ball when we put some questions to their team of customer service agents! We received a pretty rapid response from our emails. We were quick to be awarded our bonus and although we aren’t in it, we have heard pretty strong things about the VIP club.

As always with our recommended poker rooms, Party have a zero tolerance policy on fraud and collusion.  This is especially reassuring to those that are newer to the world of online poker and maybe not as knowledgeable to the various techniques on show!  They use the latest encryption coding supplied by the reputable Thawte Security to ensure your private data is safe. 

Depositing and Withdrawing:

PartyPoker have plenty of secure options for deposits and withdrawals. For Depositing, there are no charges and you can use any of the following; Visa, Visa Debit, Mastercard, Entropay, Neteller, Moneybookers, Webmoney, Western Union, UsemyBank, paysafecard, Click3Pay and wire transfer.

When withdrawing funds, please take note of the fees, These can range from $1 to $30. Most will use a Debit or Credit card and these will charge $2.50.
