Partypoker Review

Partypoker is one of the oldest Poker sites available online, having originally launched back in 2001 by PartyGaming. At its peak, Partypoker was the largest site in the U.S., however the only U.S. state it is now available in is the state of New Jersey (at the time of writing), and it remains popular in countries outside the U.S., such as the United Kingdom. In recent years the site is seventh largest in terms of traffic, meaning there are still a reasonable amount of players available at any given time (upwards of 3,000 at peak traffic).

Welcome Bonus at Partypoker

Players in the UK can enjoy some pretty impressive Welcome Bonuses at Partypoker. A 100% welcome bonus up to £400 is available to any new players on the site, as well as £40 worth of tickets over the space of six days. There is a minimum deposit requirement of £10 to be eligible for the 100% welcome bonus, however this is common place with any kind of welcome bonus.

The free tickets worth £40 can be used on SPINS and Multi-Table Tournaments (MTTs) based on the following allocation when you have deposited £10:

Other Promotions at Partypoker

In addition to the Welcome Bonus, there are many other promotions available once you are a registered player. You should check the “Promotions” tab regularly, as these can change and offer a range of different value promos.

Up to 40% Cashback every week

The 40% Cashback promotion requires an opt in from the “Offers” section of your account and resets at 23:59 CET every Sunday night for the following week. Any cashback earned is paid into your Partypoker account on a Monday.

After opting in, you’ll need to earn at least 25 points to activate the weekly cashback; the more points you earn, the higher your rakeback percentage you’ll get.

Boosted Hours

Boosted Hours promotions are often available at Partypoker. During the set hours, you can receive a multiplied point boost on your usual points. Typically a boosted hour actually lasts four hours, with the times being clearly specified within the poker client. If you are opting in to the Weekly Cashback promotion, the Boosted Hours is particularly helpful in pushing you above the minimum points threshold and into the higher tiers for bigger cashback percentages.

Account Creation

It’s super easy to create a Partypoker account and only takes a couple of minutes. From the homepage of their website, select the orange “SIGN UP” button at the top right of the screen. You are then prompted for various bits of information such as your country of residence and chosen currency, as well as your email address and a password. At this point you will be able to select your User ID that you will be known as on the tables.

You will need to verify your account before being able to deposit and play at any of the tables. This involves sending a scan of your ID Document (such as a valid driver’s license, passport or National Identity card) through their website. The Partypoker verification team aim to have all requests that they receive verified within 24 hours.

If you encounter any issues when setting up your account, you can simply click or tap on the “Help & contact” link at the bottom of the window to get assistance from the Customer Support team.

Partypoker Software

Over the years, the software at Partypoker (previously Party Poker) has gone through some significant changes. As you would expect from such a well-known Poker client, they regularly review the performance of the software and ask players for feedback to ensure that it continuously meets expectations. Downloading the Poker client is as easy as it is to create an account, simply click or tap the orange “DOWNLOAD” button from the homepage and follow the on-screen instructions. In just a few minutes you can have created your account and be ready to deposit!

Fairness and Security

Partypoker uses 128-bit encryption from Thawte Security, so you know as a player that your data is kept private and secure at all times. As with all gambling related sites, there are strict security and ID measures in place to ensure that the game is only played by those that are able to do so and that the games are entirely random to ensure fairness for everyone taking part.

Partypoker have a zero tolerance policy for cheating and will take appropriate action against any players that breach the terms and conditions. In short, they ensure that the game is kept fair and safe for all players new and old.

Contact and Customer Support

A 24-hour customer support team is available to contact with any issues that you might have, seven days a week. A Live Chat feature is also available, as well as email if you prefer. They also have a rather useful categorised list of different sections and articles that can help to answer most of the typical questions that you may encounter as a player.
