PartyPoker.com has announced the launch of a new poker platform that includes a slew of top-of-the-line upgrades. New features have been added to the following sections: Tournaments, Lobby, Tables, and Accounts.
Tournament changes include more player-friendly payouts, blind structures, and more starting chips. From now on, Sit-and-Go players will be awarded $2,000 in chips, Multi-Table players will be awarded $3,000 in chips, and "Events" players will receive $5,000 in chips. Sit-and-Go levels are now based on time, not on hands played, and entry fees for all tournament events have been included in the buy-in.
The Lobby at PartyPoker.com has been updated to display a player's available cash and PartyPoints balance. Games will be listed by blinds instead of by the maximum buy-in. Cash games have been split into No-Limit, Pot-Limit, and Limit, while tournaments are divided into groups for easier navigation. In addition, the news ticker has been made more prominent, tables are named instead of numbered, hands per hour are displayed, and filters are available to narrow down table choices.
PartyPoker.com players can now benefit from the table re-sizing feature, which allows players to shrink windows multi-table play, and windows can be automatically tiled and cascaded to fit your screen without overlap.
In addition new limits have been added for cash games, and new buy-ins for Sit-and-Gos. Also, players are now able to access both their PartyPoker.com and PartyCasino.com accounts without requiring separate log-ins.
