Party Poker

When it comes to online poker brands, they don’t get much bigger then Party Poker. And that’s who we’re looking at for today’s weekly poker review. Since its humble beginnings back in 2001, the site has grown exponentially in popularity. This is largely due to its ‘big is best’ philosophy with regards to live tables, tournaments and prizes. With a string of very popular T.V. poker shows, and lots of press attention, Party Poker is a name synonymous with online card playing. After floating on the London Stock Exchange at the end of June 2005, Party Gaming (Parent company to Party Poker) has added other gaming platforms including sports betting, bingo, backgammon and casino.

What truly separates Party Poker from many of the other online poker sites out there is its poker tournaments. The Party Poker million pound TV Tournaments attract players from all round the world, largely due to a huge jackpot estimated to be around $10million. Players can win one of the 700 invites to the tournament through playing at the poker room. By playing through a number of $25 buy-in tournaments they can book their ticket to the opportunity of a lifetime.

All the major games you would expect from a site this size including Texas Hold’em, Omaha High and Omaha High/Low, 7Card Stud, Stud 8 or Better. Buy-in’s to their poker games usually range from $5 ($1 entry fee) up to $50 ($5 entry fee). Tournament pots are normally split 50% to winner, 30% for 2nd place and 20% for 3rd place.

Even if you’re not playing in one of the big tournament events, you rarely have to wait long for single or multi-table games to fill up. At time of writing there were 5,000 ring game players and 15,000 tournament players. Tournament games are regular, with several held every hour, with a mixture of freeroll, buy-in’s and invite-only formats.

The welcome bonus for players joining Party Poker is 100% matched up to £250. Monthly promotions to all players on the site are usually offered via emails and come with terms and conditions so make sure you read before accepting. Party Poker also has weekly freeroll giveaways that are dished out randomly to players on the site.

You can earn Party points whilst playing at Party Poker, which can be cashed in at any time. The more you play, the more you earn, giving you something back for your time at the tables.

All varieties of money deposits are acceptable at Party Poker including all major credit/debit cards, NETeller and Western Union. Withdrawals are usually swift and can be debited back to your credit card instantly (Party Poker terms and conditions apply). It may not be so straight forward if you have won using a bonus offered by the site, once again read the terms of the offer before accepting it.

Party Poker have are Thawte certified, to ensure payments are managed in a very secure and professional way. The also have a GamCare certificate to prove that they are a responsible gaming site, unlike some others.

A 24/7 customer support service is offered by Party Poker and comes in the form of live chat, email or free phone. We emailed the site at various times of the day and got responses within 1 hour, which is pretty quick compared to some other sites. We liked the live chat facility offered by Party Poker, which sort of works like instant messenger. Allowing you to ask a string of questions in quick succession. The customer support phone number is not free unless your from North America, so be aware of this. That’s it for our weekly poker focus. More next week.
