Party Poker doesn’t have as many freeroll tournaments as some of their rivals, and most of those they do have often require you to have to collect certain “Achievements” (such as hitting a certain hand or playing a certain type of tournament). But this does at least mean that you won’t be disappointed by freerolls being constantly full as often occurs elsewhere and – once you qualify for the free roll tournaments – there are often some very tasty cash prizes up for grabs.
Party Poker have a decent – if not extraordinary – range of promotions. The aforementioned Cash Booster games (which have prize funds of $5,000) are worth getting involved with. You can earn a seat at a qualifier for just a single loyalty point and then if you finish in the top 25 you’ll get at seat at the main Cash Booster tournament. Alternatively, you can get a free seat if you earn five points in the week prior to a Cash Booster game.
There are various limited time offers and promotions that pop up all the time at Party Poker, usually available to those who complete certain “Missions” (see below for details of Missions). Recent examples include the chance to win VIP prizes such as playing against celebrities or various cash prizes or tournament entries.
As part of the rebrand, Party Poker introduced a system of Achievements and Missions that aimed to improve engagement amongst players and to promote a more social aspect to the site. Achievements are marketed as “personal milestones” and when you do certain things on Party Poker you are awarded badges that will be displayed on your profile.
Unlike the Boy Scouts, though, you really don’t have to do much to gain the badges, which are split into three categories: Collectables, Milestones and Highlights. You might get a Collectable badge for hitting a certain hand (a paid of kings gives you the Cowboys Achievement, for instance), while you get your Poker Career I Milestone when you play your first hand of poker and a Highlight badge when hitting a big win. Apart from the kudos of displaying your badges, Achievements are perhaps a little gimmicky in all honesty, though at certain times promotions will be linked to certain Achievements, so it’s always worth watching out for that. Missions, on the other hand, tend to actually win you stuff. Whether bonus loyalty points, cash, tournament tickets or prizes, Missions are definitely worth taking on.
As mentioned above, you will earn two loyalty points for ever $1 you spend in poker tournament fees and table charges. You start at the bronze level but can rise to silver if you earn 400 points in a month and gold if you bag 1,000 points. The top level (palladium) is reached by accruing 9,000 points in a calendar quarter, and various rewards and bonuses are available to players depending on the level they achieve. Obviously the higher up the loyalty ladder you get, the bigger and better the rewards.
The new clean look and social focus gives players a fresh approach to the lobby and general interface, but the tables and games themselves have not really changed and are as crisp and easy on the eye as they always were.
As well as heaps of No Limit Texas Hold’em tournaments, you will also find other variations including Limit Hold’em, Pot-limit Hold’em, Pot-limit Omaha and Pot-limit Omaha Hi-Lo. The absence of some of the other popular variations (such as Seven Card Stud) will disappoint some, but there is a chance more will be added further down the line.
Tournaments come in various shapes and sizes from the Sit and Go tournaments of one or a few tables to the sometimes massive Multi-table tournaments in which the tables are “collapsed” until there is just a single table left. There are also Shootout tournaments in which each table is like a mini-tournament in which you play until there are three players left, who then move onto a new table for the next round.
Overall Party Poker is a great poker option for those who want an easy-to-use site with some decent promotions and more of a social aspect than you will find elsewhere, so give them a try today and see if you like what you find.
