partypoker Enhances Software, More than Doubles Guaranteed Schedule

partypoker's Mike Sexton

partypoker rolled out a software update on Saturday, Feb. 24 with many enhancements to improve the experience of its players.

One major aspect players will notice is the re-introduction of an oval-shaped table. While this will prove to be popular with many of its players, the legacy table design is still available for players to use if they prefer.

Another cool feature is that the name plates now feature a larger font. This should prove helpful for players that multi-table so they can process who their opponents are quicker.

Player notes are now enhanced with color-coding appearing over the entire name plate making it easier to see. In addition, the time-bank button has been revamped giving it a fresh new look and feel.

These are just some of the new features as there are several more enhancements to improve the experience of customers playing at partypoker tables. Some features to come in future updates include bubble chat, the option to show a table in full-screen mode, and an option for players to see stack sizes in big blinds.

Feedback on the changes from members of the poker community has been mostly positive.

Weekly Guarantees Increase from $4 Million to $10 Million

The software changes aren't the only big changes taking place at partypoker. The online poker room has increased its weekly guarantees by a whopping 250 percent, from $4 million to $10 million in prize pools each and every week.

In addition, the site will be hosting the biggest online tournament in history, the $5,300 Online MILLIONS with a mouth-watering $20 million guaranteed prize pool. The online poker room will also be giving away $3 million in seats to this historic tournament in a huge Power Series Leaderboard competition starting this month.

According to the My partypoker Blog titlted Life’s a Gamble: We’re ALL-IN!, partypoker is "thinking big."

"Think big or go home!" said President of partypoker LIVE John Duthie. "And trust me, they are thinking BIG! They are guaranteeing over $200m in the next 12 months, with massive events planned all over the globe. There’s never been a live poker tour anywhere near as big as the partypoker LIVE tour in the history of poker.

"So, we’re ALL-IN with great new software, a huge $1M Guarantee this Sunday, $10M guaranteed every week, a $20M MILLIONS Online tournament and over $200M in live guarantees! That is a call not only Isildur1 can make. You can too!”
