Party Poker was one of the original brands when online poker launched in the mid 1990′s and since then the company has continued to grow. Today Party Poker is an integral part of the world’s largest online gambling company, with shares traded on the London Stock Exchange. The software that powers Party Poker has been downloaded over 30 million times by players from around the world.
Party Poker enjoys a strong reputation amongst players for both providing a high quality service and having a relatively soft player pool. Experienced poker players will often find easy winnings, especially in tournaments and low level Texas Hold’em and Omaha tables, which are typically filled with novice players. High stakes and other experienced players will still be able to find a challenging game of poker if that’s what they’re after.
Software & Graphics
Party Poker’s small software client grants players instant access to the action, allowing players to both manually pick their tables and be automatically placed based on the kind of game and stakes they want. Players can also see an entire list of tables that fit their criteria and select which one they want to join rather than being automatically placed, making it easy to watch the action of exciting high stakes matchups.
The Party Poker software offers fast paced action to players. The lack of demanding graphics ensures that it’s easy to multi-table, with players able to have as many tables open as they can handle. Players are able to pre-set options to post blinds and muck hands, while it is easy to calculate bets based on the size of the pot and quickly make that all important raise.
Poker Game Varieties
The regular varieties of poker games are available at Party Poker, including the market leading No Limit Texas Hold’em and Omaha. The site also offers players 7 Card Stud, Pot Limit Texas Hold’em and Omaha Hi/Lo. All these games are available for play in ring games, practice play, tournaments and Sit & Go’s.
Party Poker also plays host to their unique game Double Hold’em. In this game, which follows players the same basic rules as regular Texas Hold’em, players are dealt three hole cards and then elect a ‘point card’ which can be used with both remaining cards in order to make two hands.
