Their software has had a major upgrade over the last year or two as they look to
compete with the market leaders but they still have some way to go. The lobby looks
very good but has a number of issues that they fail to address, like scroll bars
that fail to scroll. The table software is the highlight with nice big tables, cards
and action buttons that make playing on Party Poker a pleasing experience. Multi-tabling
is also very easy as they use the queuing system so you don’t have tables popping
up over the table you are currently acting on.
CUSTOMER SERVICE - 7/10
Their customer services has mixed opinions amongst their regular players. They have
no live chat option so you are reduced to emailing. Replies are usually at an acceptable
speed, but sometimes can be a bit on the slow side. Their higher ranked VIP members
do receive quick email responses.
TOURNAMENT SCHEDULE - 8/10
Their tournament schedule is above average with plenty to choose from. They have
tournaments starting regularly with sensible buy-ins and they operate the player
friendly late registration and synchronized breaks so all of your tournaments go
on a break at the same time. They run a weekly $200,000GTD tournament with a $215
buy-in plus plenty of satellites into this for the micro stakes players. Our big
tournaments include a $100,000GTD high roller and a $40,000GTD standard.
CASH GAME TRAFFIC - 8/10
They have the second best cash game traffic in the industry with nearly 10,000 at
peak times. The games are buzzing at micro stakes with many tables available. As
you move up the stakes, however, the numbers start to thin. But you can certainly
get many games going at stakes up to and including $3/$6NL. Should be an automatic
choice for cash game player. They are also the only poker site to offer Double Hold’em.
A very fun game that can be described as a mixture between Hold’em and Omaha.
The rake is the big let down for the site. Their SnG rake is way above industry standard
and their cash game rake is also above the standard, albeit at an almost acceptable
level. Higher volume players would notice it much more than the recreational player.
Party Poker is the number two poker site in the industry in regards to traffic. The player count regularly exceeds 30,000 at peak times, something only PokerStars can beat. Party Poker is also THE trusted brand in online poker.
