New features, $4m in promos spur Party surge

Prize money
Kind of a big deal.

The lobby's easier to navigate, multi-tabling is better than ever and a half-dozen more new features make Party Poker the most player-friendly it's ever been.

Add in an extra $4 million in special promos and it's no wonder traffic numbers are way up lately.

Celebrating the launch of their new software with a $4 million promo binge, Party Poker is seeing players pile onto its new and improved felt.

Traffic is up 21% in October so far (to 5,200 players on average over each 24-hour period), as tracked by the PokerListings.com MarketPulse software.

Beyond the new features - including a new quick-seat function, live-action previews, customized images and enhanced multi-tabling - the two big promos driving the surge are the $2m "Big Deal" and the $2m "King of the Table" tourney.

The Big Deal is one of Party Poker's biggest-ever promotions.

From Sept. 30-Nov. 1 there's a daily $10,000 draw which pays out 100 players cash prizes ranging from $25 to $500.

A huge mega-jackpot draw will then take place on Nov. 1, which will give away an estimated $2 million in total cash to another 10,000 winners.

To get into the draws, pick up PartyPoints on the poker tables any day through Oct. 31. Each PartyPoint gets you one ticket into the next day's daily-jackpot draw and one ticket into the mega-jackpot draw.

There's no limit to the number of tickets you can have, so the more points you earn, the better your chances in the draws.

Capping off the promo binge is the $2 million King of the Table tourney, set for Nov. 30.

With a guaranteed prize pool of $2 million, King of the Table is officially the largest tournament Party's ever organized.

Qualifying is ongoing, with satellites from as low as $1. Sign up through a PokerListings.com link and also be eligible for a $500 bonus and private monthly $2k freerolls.
