Party Poker has been around since 2001 and remains as one of the largest poker rooms on the internet. It’s powered by its own proprietary software and is running of bwin.party network. In March 2011 Party Poker merged with Bwin.com to create bwin.party, an online gambling site empire consisting of sportsbooks, poker rooms, online casinos and online bingo sites.

Members can choose from a variety of poker games including Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, 7 Card Stud, 7 Card Stud Hi-Lo and a unique game called Double Hold’em. Players can enter over a hundred cash ring games with different stakes or choose to play one of many tournaments including exclusive events such as Summer Million and $250K Sunday Guaranteed. Members can also enter qualifiers to live events like WSOP, WPT, Aussie Millions and many others.

The site has a PartyPoints system that allows players to collect points as they play and later exchange them via Points Store into tournament seats, luxurious gifts, gadgets, gift certificates or simply into cash and bonuses. Collecting enough points enrolls players in Palladium Rewards loyalty program with special bonuses and exclusive promotions.

Party Poker is operated on its own proprietary software and runs on bwin.party poker network. Both downloadable and instant play versions of the software are offered to players. While the downloadable platform is limited to Windows users, the no download poker software can be played on Windows, Macs and Linux computers.

Party Poker software has a number of useful features. Players can choose to play cash games, sit & gos, tournaments or play money games. These can be further sorted by table types, blind levels, game types and buy-in amounts.

The software also allows to change deck color, save hand history, customize sounds, select avatars, and view statistics. The poker software also allows to play up to 12 tables at once, arrange table windows to suit a player’s preference, and offers a unique “hot hand” alert (which notifies players when a specific hand is dealt).

Party Poker players have a choice to play Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, 7 Card Stud and 7 Card Stud Hi-Lo poker games. There is also a unique game called Double Hold’em where players receive three hole cards instead of two. After the flop, players choose one card to be the “point card”, which will then play alongside other two cards, creating two separate hands. The hand that comes up strongest will automatically be played. It is an interesting poker variation, but could be confusing for beginner players.

Party Poker has over 100 cash games tables open simultaneously, offering members an opportunity to select a blind level corresponding to their budget. An abundance of tournaments is also available to players. These include daily and weekly guaranteeds, many freerolls, Sunday Bike Ride, Spring Million, $250K Guaranteed Sunday and many more. Qualifiers to prestigious live events such as WSOP, WPT and Aussie Millions are also available to all members.
