    With the partypoker mobile app, players can experience partypoker’s vast array of cash games, tournaments, and sit-n-gos on the go and in the palm of their hands. The partypoker mobile app is available for both Android and iOS. Android users can get the partypoker app on Google Play, and iOS users can download the partypoker mobile app from the App Store.

    The partypoker mobile app includes both real-money and play-money poker. The state-of-the-art user interface makes it easy to get set up for mobile poker play and one can efficiently maneuver around the app thanks to the user-friendly tools.

    One of the most popular features of the partypoker mobile app is fastforward poker. Fastforward is, as the name suggests, as faster way to play Texas hold’em poker. Once you fold your hand, you will be immediately moved to a new table and dealt into a new hand – instantly. This means no more boring downtime between the hands you play. Once you fold, you’re off to a new table, against new opponents, with a new hand.

    Our favorite feature of the partypoker mobile app is the app’s multi-table feature. Instead of just playing one table, players can enjoy up to four tables of action, and it’s all done with a very user-friendly interface. There is no need to leave a table, visit the lobby, and enter a new table. Players can simply scroll or tap to maneuver between tables. The intuitive app has alerts built in to let you know when it’s your turn to act on another table, helping you to never miss a hand again, especially when you’re dealt pocket aces.

    Adding another table of action is easy, too, specifically if you want to play another table of the same game. There’s an option built in to add a similar game to the one you’re already playing, making it fast and easy to multi-table in just a couple of taps on your mobile device.

    About partypoker

    Founded in 2001, partypoker, currently owned by GVC Holdings, is one of the oldest and most established global poker brands. The company offers regulated online gaming products worldwide and is one of the most trusted names in the industry.

    Up until 2006, partypoker was home to the largest online poker room in the world, but when the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) was passed in 2006, the company, then owned by partygaming, opted to leave the United States market. With its withdrawal from the U.S., partypoker lost its position as the world’s largest online card room to PokerStars.

    In 2009, the company acquired internationally televised gaming and entertainment brand, the World Poker Tour, for $12.3 million. Two years later, in 2011, partygaming merged with bwin to form bwin.party Digital Entertainment. In 2015, the World Poker Tour was sold by bwin.party to Ourgame International Holdings Ltd., a Hong Kong-listed corporation, for $35 million in cash.

    Following a lengthy time away from the U.S. market, partypoker returned in 2013 via the regulated online market in New Jersey as partypoker NJ.

    The site’s New Jersey platform is currently only servicing players in the Garden State. The player pool is not connected with those outside of the State of New Jersey, be it within the rest of the regulated markets in the United States or elsewhere around the world.

    In 2016, GVC Holdings acquired bwin.party Digital Entertainment for $1.71 billion.

Based on the amount of points you earn by playing real-money tournament, sit-n-gos, or cash games, you’ll receive a percentage of your rake back. Players earn two points for every $1 paid in tournament fees and cash game rake. To be eligible to receive rakeback, a player must earn a minimum of 25 points.

    How To Get Your partypoker Bonus

    The bonus is split into 10 increments and you have 60 days to complete it. The bonus is released as you earn points playing poker. On partypoker, players earn two points for every $1 paid in tournament fees and cash game rake. Every four points you earn will count as $1 towards your bonus. If you deposit $1,000 to receive the maximum deposit bonus match, your bonus will be released in $100 increments with every 400 points you earn.

    Traffic

    Partypoker has good traffic for both cash games and tournaments. Although the site doesn’t generate nearly as much traffic as PokerStars, the games are known to be on the softer side thanks to less professional grinders and more recreational players.

    Partypoker averages approximately 1,500-2,000 players on a daily basis and games can generally be found around the clock due to partypoker’s global reach.

    Cash Games

    The most common poker format played on partypoker is no-limit hold’em, with stakes offered as low as $0.01/$0.02 and as high as $200/$400. In addition to its no-limit hold’em offering, partypoker has a wide range of limit hold’em stakes, starting at $0.02/$0.04 and working up to $30/$60.

    The second most popular format behind hold’em is Omaha poker, which should come of no surprise, and it’s mostly played in pot-limit Omaha format. Like no-limit hold’em, stakes for pot-limit Omaha range from as low as $0.01/$0.02 and as high as $200/$400 on partypoker.

    Featured Events

    Partypoker has two very large featured online series, the partypoker MILLIONS Online and the partypoker Powerfest.

    In 2018, the partypoker MILLIONS Online set out to become the largest online poker tournament prize pool in history, thanks to a $20 million guarantee on the event. It delivered in full, as the $5,300 buy-in tournament attracted 4,367 entries to surpass the guarantee and reach a $21.78 million prize pool that officially became the largest prize pool in online poker history. The top four places in the 2018 partypoker MILLIONS Online earned seven-figure paydays, with first ($2.329 million) and second ($2.278 million) places becoming the #1 and #2 biggest single scores to date in online poker tournament history.

    The 2018 partypoker Powerfest delivered a jam-packed schedule of 147 events that had a total of $60 million in guaranteed prize pools. In the 2018 partypoker Powerfest, buy-ins were available for all levels, ranging from $1.10 to $25,500.

    Software

    The partypoker mobile app is available for both Android and iOS users. Visit partypoker via your mobile phone or tablet to download the mobile client. Android users can get the partypoker app on Google Play, and iOS users can find the partypoker app available for download in the App Store.

    Loyalty Program

    As previously described above, players on partypoker have the opportunity to receive up to 40% rakeback per month by playing real-money games. Players can also work their way up through the site’s loyalty program to achieve higher status and benefit from more rewards.

    The partypoker status levels are as follows.

    • Bronze: 0 points-per-month requirement
    • Silver: 50 points-per-month requirement
    • Gold: 750 points-per-month requirement
    • Palladium: 2,000 points-per-month requirement

    Once again, partypoker players earn two points for every $1 paid in tournament fees and cash game rake. As players earn points, they can reward themselves by cashing in on those points in the partypoker points stores for tournament tickets and other items.

    Deposit and Withdrawal Options

    The partypoker mobile app allows players to withdraw and deposit funds with only a few moves. Options may vary by country and credit cards may be accepted for deposits. The most common methods for deposits include credit cards, such as Visa or MasterCard, electronic wallets, such as Skrill, Neteller, and PayPal, electronic checks, and wire transfers. Be sure to check on the options specific to you in your country.

    Partypoker also offers many options for withdrawals, but again, this will vary by country.

    Customer Support

    Customer support is available for partypoker 24/7 and through a few different channels. Those in need of support can contact partypoker via phone, email, and live chat. Those who would prefer to first try and troubleshoot the issue themselves before speaking with a partypoker customer support representative can do so by combing through all of the available information and FAQs online at partypoker.com.

    To email partypoker support, do so at info@partypoker.com. Email responses generally take less than 12 hours, so this isn’t the best way to contact customer support for an issue you’d like attended to more immediately.

    Conclusion

    Compared to its competitors, partypoker was behind in releasing its mobile poker app. That was at first, though, and the site has since caught up with a state-of-the-art mobile poker app that delivers a high-quality user experience.

    Players on the partypoker mobile app can participate in both cash games and tournaments with ease, and it is available for both iOS and Android. iOS users can get the app from the App Store and Android users can get it on Google Play, so very few people should be left out. It’s also able to be played via mobile phone or tablet.

    In addition to the accessible platform, user-friendly interface, and variety of poker games available, the partypoker mobile app delivers with the ability for players to multi-table in a smooth and efficient manner. With the ability to multi-table within the partypoker mobile app, just about everything you get from the regular, desktop platform is available to you on the go in mobile form.
