Partypoker is one of the oldest and most established online poker rooms available. Launched by PartyGaming in 2001, this poker site used to be the center of the online poker action until 2006 when partypoker left the US market due to UIGEA. Later in 2011, GVC Holdings acquired Partycasino as the merger of PartyGaming occurred. Other brands sharing the same network include Bwin, a brand mostly known for sports betting and a proud sponsor of the Real Madrid soccer team.
Partypoker was leading the online poker market due to their versatile advertising activities including television commercials and utilization of tournament poker early on. In fact, they ran their first million dollar guaranteed tournament already in 2002.
The software has been improved significantly over the years and now has some very interesting features like the “hot hand” alert, which you can set to alert you whenever you have a hot hand. It’s a feature most useful to rookie poker players. Also you can play on up to 12 tables simultaneously.
Here you can play pot-limit Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, no-limit Texas Hold’em, 7 Card Stud and other poker games. As mentioned previously, they have very low bet limits going as low as $0.01, which makes them affordable to virtually every poker player. The buy-ins are also affordable starting from $0.10.
Partypoker introduced a very interesting cash game feature, which will make your gaming a more exciting one. With the Cash Game missions, you get to fulfill missions and you get rewarded for that. You get a cash reward or bonus if you manage to complete a mission in the given time. It’s a nice way to sharpen your poker skills. There are also missions for the Sit-n-Go games.
