Thee place for tournaments
Tournaments is where Party Poker true stands out from the crowds, their flagship event is the 'Party Poker Millions' tournament held in March and players all year around compete for place in it. They also have real & play money tournaments every day. The buy-ins range from a minimum of $5 (with a $1 entry fee) to $50 (with a $5 entry fee). The pot is split 50% for 1st Place, 30% for 2nd place and 20% for third place, but win or lose, these tournaments are exceptional value for money.

The graphics are a little crude compared with other poker rooms, but one you are used to the setup you will find it very easy to get exactly the game you want. Unfortunately they only operate in US dollars.

Busy & quite loose
Party Poker is an exceptionally busy site one which assures plenty of action day and night. This site attracts a wide range of players, many of which are newbies making this quite a loose site. There are usually a couple of big games going all and plenty of smaller limit games running 24/7.
