Party Poker was launched in 2001 and quickly became the world's largest online poker site. PartyGaming, the company that owns Party Poker, is publicly traded on the London Stock Exchange (LSE: PRTY).
The UIGEA resulted in Party Poker withdrawing from the US and a number of other countries. While they are no longer the biggest in the world, they remain in the top five and boast an incredibly strong and loyal client base from around the world. Excellent games at all limits and at all hours of the day.
Sign up to Party Poker through our site and you will start earning PartyPoints whenever you play with real money on partypoker or any other party gaming product (casino, bingo, etc.). For example you can receive:
- One PartyPoint for each 50 cents you pay in tournament fees.
- 10 PartyPoints for every 25 raked hands you play on our $1/$2 no-limit Texas Hold'em tables.
How to spend your PartyPoints
Party's store gives a wide range of great items in exchange for points, including big-money tournament entries, gift certificates and cash. You can also buy bonuses to get even more from your points.
The more PartyPoints you collect, the higher your key level and the more value you can unlock from our store. Once you reach the top key level, Palladium Elite, you can buy bonuses in the store which give you up to $20 back for every 100 points, equating to 40% rake-back.
You achieve a key level by earning the required number of PartyPoints during a single month or quarter (see table above). Once you reach a key level, you can immediately unlock rewards available to that key level for the remainder of the month or quarter and the one following it.
Note: To maintain a particular key level, you must earn the required PartyPoints in the following month or quarter in order to stay at that key level or to advance to the next key level.
You can redeem their points for cash and bonuses based on the levels below.
While the cash rewards are very attractive, the bonuses offer even better value. Clearing requirements are only 25% of the bonus cost in points (half the previous requirement!), and are cleared in five easy installments. Plus, all the points you earn while clearing one bonus are yours to keep, and use towards buying your next bonus!
Support at PartyPoker can offer differing speeds of resolution which you have to expect from a poker room of that size. But saying that, I have never had to wait any longer than 30 minutes to get a reply to my queries and so I would consider PartyPoker support to be sufficient at the very least.
