partypoker is one of the biggest poker rooms in the world with great player volume, competitive promotions, tons of special events, a nice loyalty program and great tournaments and cash games.
Once the biggest online poker room in the world, partypoker has been playing catch up since 2006 when it moved out of the U.S. market but it appears to once again be on the upswing thanks to a resurgent growing partypoker Live tour headed by EPT founder John Duthie and major improvements to its software and online tournament schedule.
Play online is still definitely on the soft side, though, with lots of easy games to be found especially at the lower-limits of Hold'em and Omaha. Ridiculously soft in some cases, especially in tournaments. But the new $60m guaranteed Powerfest has really upped the ante and features some of the biggest buy-in/prize pool events online.
partypoker recently overhauled its software to both improve playability and make it so players can't table select. They've also incorporated anonymous names until you sit down at a table so HUDs won't be able to give your opponent an advantage.
partypoker Perfects the Poker Experience
All these moves have been made to better protect the experience for recreational players, which is fantastic if you're just starting out in poker.
Another amazing addition in January 2018 were the daily and weekly satellites to win partypoker LIVE $$$ which can be used for buy-ins to any partypoker LIVE main and side events and/or hotel and travel!
Games offered are all variations of Texas Hold'em and Pot-Limit Omaha. Because of its size and geographical diversity, action at Party Poker can be found in pretty much any game at any hour. partypoker also offers its own speed poker variant called FastForward Poker.
A major software redesign has also added a lot of great new features including:
- Improved (and larger) table design
- Bigger hole cards
- Crisper graphics
- Quick-seat feature
- Live-action preview
- Amazing customization option for player images, felts and table backgrounds, restyled bet sliders, etc
- Enhanced multi-tabling options
- Improved player notes
- Digital countdown timer
partypoker also added an exclusive client for Mac users and is now definitely in the conversation for most "player-friendly" online poker site.
Publically traded on the London Stock Exchange, partypoker is arguably the most secure online poker room in the world with certification from eGaming, GamCare and eCOGRA.

Tournaments and Freerolls
Massive $60m Powerfest Leads Tournament Overhaul
The centerpiece of partypoker's online tournament revamp has been the shaping of its usual tournament lineup in to the more potent Powerfest series which now run a couple times a year.
Mirroring the biggest buy-in series at other major poker sites the 2018 guarantee for the Fall Powerfest was $60 million and offered an eye-popping 670 events across all buy in levels.
Major partypoker pros like Anatoly Filatov and Bertrand Grospellier appear atop the high-stakes leaderboards but with events with buy-ins as low as $1.10 Powerfest truly is a tournament series for everyone.
Powerfest promotions come in tow as well to add even more value. Even better, the partypoker Millions Online running in late November offers a dazzling $20m guarantee and $2.5m to the winner!
The recurring KO Series, a Progressive Knockout style series with hundreds of events with buy-ins ranging from $2.20 to $3,150, is up to $15m in guaranteed money as well.
Versatile, Around-the-Clock Tournament Lineup
partypoker is now one of the biggest sites around when it comes to tournament play - especially in No-Limit Hold'em. The biggest volume events are definitely the small buy-in tournaments and play at any level is relatively loose, but the big buy-in tournaments will definitely offer up some tough competition.
partypoker runs a great deal of guaranteed tournaments and qualifiers. The most common are the qualifiers to the weekly $300,000 guaranteed tournaments, where a player can win the tournament's $215 buy-in for as little as $3.
partypoker's freeroll spread is great, too, with special events for new players, country-specific freerolls plus special points freerolls and promotions. If you like turbo, shorthanded Jackpot Sit & Gos, where the prize pools are multiplied randomly before the tournament begins, you'll love partypoker's SPINS with special edition “SPINS $1M” games with just a $5 buy-in.
With standard multipliers up to 1,200x the buy-in, they're great value and super fun.
Party Poker also spreads plenty of different qualifiers to big live events all over the world like the partypoker MILLIONS, Country Championships, Grand Prix and partypoker sponsored events such as WSOP-C Brazil (R$4,000,000 GTD in 2018) and partypoker Sochi.
For tournament players being able to change your stack to Big Blinds is another amazing feature from the software update.
Software and Graphics
To say partypoker’s software has improved over the last few years is an understatement. The current partypoker offers a sharp, dark theme and is one of the sharpest, fastest and most reliable poker clients in existence.
The software offers all the industry standards including four-color decks, comprehensive hand histories, customizable sounds, deal-making, avatars, quick seat, training tables and statistics.
Multi-tabling is a dream on partypoker with support for play at 12 tables simultaneously and table re-sizing. Tiling and cascading is also available as is the unique “stacking” view, which some players swear by.
One of the best features is the “hot hand” hand alert, which you can set to notify you whenever you get a specific hand like pocket aces or pocket kings.
Another software update in August 2018 improved the functionality and customization even more to make playing longer hours and more tables even more pleasing.
partypoker FastForward Poker
partypoker also offers a speed or "fast fold" poker variant, similar to Zoom Poker and Rush Poker before it, called FastForward Poker that allows players to record thousands of hands in relatively short order.
The site also offers Sit & Go Hero, which is a variant of the recent popular jackpot-style Sit & Go's where the winner receives a randomized prize. Sit & Go Hero are offered in three and four-handed versions.
Furthermore partypoker has incorporated several features to protect rec players such as no table-selection and semi-anonymous tables. Both are a huge win for new players.
The Flash-application browser version of the software makes it possible to play partypoker on Windows, Apple and even Linux computers and the download version is now available to both Mac and Windows users.
Play SHORTDECK at partypoker Now!
Another nice addition to the partypoker software has been Short Deck Hold'em, which is a fairly new game variation that has swept the high-stakes poker scene lately.
Also known as 6+ Hold'em, Short Deck is an intense, action-packed game with all the cards below 6 removed from the deck. With just 36 cards hands can get big, quick. An Ace can be high or low and a flush now beats a full house in the hand rankings.
As of the launch SHORTDECK at partypoker can be played on 6-Max tables with antes from 2 cents to $10. In Short Deck antes are paid by every player pre-flop which makes for bigger opening pots than most games.
partypoker uses the same ‘Ante-Only’ convention used by the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series, which it has also recently signed a new deal with. For now SHORTDECK can only be played in cash game form but expect SHORTDECK MTTs and SHORTDECK SnGs to follow.
Find SHORTDECK in the quick lobby in the partypoker client or in the main Cash Game lobby. Learn more about how to play Short Deck Hold'em on our dedicated page here:
Remove Chips from the Table!
partypoker is now the ONLY poker site that lets you remove chips from the table (once your stack reaches a certain size) but keep playing at that same table.
partypoker has always had very loose and juicy games, mostly due to its extensive affiliate program and massive marketing bringing in hundreds of new players daily.
Even at middle-limit games this holds true and you can typically find very soft games even up to $2/$4 in No-Limit and $5/$10 in Fixed-Limit, whereas many other poker rooms at these stakes will give you rather tough opposition.
With its new tournament lineup drawing in a ton of established players the higher stakes events have notably gotten tougher but down in the micros the standard of play is, well, standard.
