Summary: Offers a large variety of games and players thanks to their position as one of the world’s largest online poker rooms. Software is functional and available to both Windows and Mac users.
PartyPoker is one of the world’s largest online poker rooms with a wide variety of games available to play. They have some of the best tournament structures around and an extremely loyal following within the poker community.
Although PartyPoker left the US market in 2006, this proved to be a shrewd move as many other poker sites such as Full Tilt and Poker Stars had their domains and other assets seized by the US government. Party Poker’s foresight allowed them to emerge relatively unscathed by the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (UIGEA).
In 2011, PartyGaming and bwin merged to become the world’s largest online gaming business. Since the merger PartyPoker has continued to grow, offering the best online poker experience.
PartyPoker offers a wide variety of games including all varieties of Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, 7-Card Stud and 7-Card Stud Hi-Lo. Because of the sheer size of the poker room you will find a plethora of diverse players and skill levels. Whether you are looking for soft (easy) games or tougher opponents to truly test your skills, you can find it at PartyPoker.com.
You have the option to download software on your computer or you can play PartyPoker from within your web browser. There is software available for both Mac and Windows, so you can play from pretty much anywhere.
One of the lesser-known gems at PartyPoker is the quality of their World Series Of Poker (WSOP) prize packages. Although most of the online poker rooms offer WSOP prize packages, PartyPoker’s package is probably one of the most generous around. At a staggering $14,000, this is $1,000 more than most other WSOP packages online.
PartyGaming’s acquisition of the World Poker Tour (WPT) also gives PartyPoker players the opportunity to qualify for live WPT events around the world.
