Party Poker was once the biggest online poker room in the world but then came the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act and the poker room stopped accepting players from the United States.
Party Poker is powered by the PartyGaming System which is tested frequently by iTech labs to ensure the games are operated correctly and fairly, providing the highest level of integrity and honest to the games. Party Poker software has some cool features like the Deal Making facility that allows players who are close to the end of large tournaments to make a deal and divide the money differently than the payout schedule and according to the size of their chip stack. Players at Party Poker can play at up to 4 tables simultaneously.
Mac Users will be pleased to learn that Party Poker now has a no download version of their poker software that Mac and Linux users can play on.
There are several types of poker varieties offered here such as Texas Hold’em (no limit, fixed), Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, 7-Card stud and 7-Card Stud Hi/Lo. Tournaments are huge at Party Poker and players can get plenty of action as tournaments are constantly being played and new games start all the time. Cash games have varying stakes and rakes are at industry standards depending on the stake size.
Playing at some of the cash games can even make a winner out of a losing hand if the Bad Beat Jackpot is hit.
