Party Poker Room Review

Published March 11, 2010 - RSS/XML Feed RSS
Party Poker was launched in 2001 under the PartyGaming network.  Party Poker has remained one of the largest online poker rooms despite not being able to accept U.S players due to the UIGEA gaming act being enforced in 2006. Heavy online and television advertising has kept Party Poker's traffic high and has made it the largest online poker room not currently accepting U.S players.

Party Poker Cash Games & Tournaments
 
Party Poker offers a range of poker games but does lack a few that you would expect a poker room of this size to provide. Texas Hold'em, 7-Card-Stud and Omaha are all offered but games such as micro-limit Sit-n-Go's and Heads-up games are unfortunately not.
 
Party Poker is one of the best sites for tournament play. Their large player base makes it easy for any player to find a table at most stakes, even at off-peak times. Buy-ins start at $1 all the way up to a few hundred. Competition is very loose at the lower stake tournaments, however, as usual, play gets a lot tougher at tables where the buy-in is above $100.
 
Freeroll, guaranteed and qualifier tournaments are all popular at Party Poker. One of the biggest qualifiers is the 'Party Poker King of the Table'$2 million tournament. Players can enter the qualifiers at the lowest stage for as little as $1 to be in with a chance to be crowned 'King of the Table'.

Party Poker Software & Graphics
 
In 2008, the Party Poker software was re-designed, giving it better graphics and improved features. The site is now very user-friendly and has a clean, simple layout. The table graphics are crisp and colourful and include features such as customisable avatars and table backgrounds. The Party Poker software is compatible with all operating systems including Windows, Mac and Linux.


Party Poker Bonus & Promotions
 
New players at Party Poker can receive a 100% match on their initial deposit up to a maximum of $500.
Party Poker also offers loyal players regular promotions such as cash bonuses and reload bonuses. The reload bonuses offered are not usually as generous as the welcome bonus mentioned above but are welcomed by all regular Party poker players.
 
Party Poker Bonus Requirements
 
To receive your Party Poker bonus you must make an initial deposit of at least $25. Your bonus money will be credited to your Party Poker account in 10 increments when the required amount of 'Party Points' have been collected. You must earn eight times your initial deposit in Party Points to receive your full bonus. For example, if you deposit $25, you must collect 200 Party Points to receive your full $25 bonus. Ten payments of $2.50 will be credited to your account each time you collect 20 Party Points.
 
Party Points are Party Poker's loyalty scheme. They are earned whilst playing at the Party Poker cash tables and tournaments with buy-ins and can been used to purchase merchandise, cash, clear bonuses and to gain entries to Party Poker tournaments.
 
PartyPoker.net - Play Poker for Free
 
PartyPoker.net is another site run by PartyGaming. Players can play for free on PartyPoker.net and no real money is exchanged. However, players must still be over the age of 18 (21 in some countries) to participate.  As online poker is becoming more popular, many established online poker rooms are offering separate free-play sites for their users. Their aim is to improve the standard of new players by giving them practice without any real-money betting. These players can then join the real-money sites when they are at a good enough standard if they choose to do so.
