Software – graphics and functionality
Party Poker has upgraded their software several times over the last years and it’s now undoubtedly up to scale. With new servers they have a capacity of 50,000 simultaneous players. You’re allowed to play ay four tables at once, but the statistics offered are at a pretty basic level. You don’t get to see the view flop percentages or the hands per hour rate, only the average pot size of the last 20 hands is presented.
Ring game and tournament traffic
Thanks to aggressive marketing Party Poker has the highest number of ring game, real money players – 17,000-20,000 during peak hours. When it comes to tournaments this room is even more dominant and hosts around 70 % of all Limit Hold’em tournaments in the world. During peak hours, 24,000-28,000 real money, tournament players visit Party Poker.
Game variety and competition
Party Poker offers a good variety of games, but there are a few things missing, like heads up matches, draw poker and pot-limit structure for 7-Card-Stud games and Omaha High. Many beginners visit this site and as a result of that you can easily find weak competition. Even in no limit games with $2-$4 stakes and limit games with $5-$10 stakes you will be able to find loose and soft action.
Rake and tournament fees
The low limit rake is high at Party Poker – 10% in $0.50-$1 and $1-$2 games. In high limit games the rake is more favorable to the players. The structure is the same when it comes to tournaments with a 20% fee in $5 games and an 8% fee in $100 games.
Loyalty bonus and promotions
Party Poker offers a big frequent player points program and has several re-deposit bonuses of 15-25% up to a $100 maximum. This room is top class when it comes to promotions with the annual PartyPoker.com million as the outstanding event.
