Games: Party Poker spreads all the classic games: Texas Hold’em, Omaha, and 7 Card Stud. There are plenty of limit, no limit and pot limit options, along with a ton of MTTs and SNGs running all the time.
Special Features: Party Poker runs Beginners Tables, which are designed to keep the sharks away from those just learning poker. The games for beginners are all at low limits, and you can only access these tables for 45 days after you open an account at Party Poker.
Another popular feature is the Bad Beat Jackpot. At some tables, a small addition to the rake is taken out of each pot and contributed to the jackpot. If you lose a hand in which you have four of a kind (8s or better), or you’re at the table when someone does, you get a share of the jackpot! There are also High Hand Jackpot tables, where you win if someone makes a royal flush to win a hand.
Party Poker has a cash bonus for players who refer friends to the site, and the requirements for this are very low.
Software Features: Like most major poker sites, the Party Poker software allows you to create buddy lists, collect hand histories, and use filters in the lobby to make finding the game you want easier. You can do a lot of customization to the tables: four color decks are available, you can pick what seat you want to sit in, and there are many skins to use to make the tables easier on the eyes.
