Stay up to date with the latest version of the partypoker client software, and learn more about each new feature!
Monday, June 17 sees a major overhaul of partypoker’s cash game product, which brings the following software changes:
Forced screen name change
From 09:00 BST (10:00 CEST) all players will be required to select a new player alias (screen name) when they log into the client – allowing everyone on partypoker’s global dotcom license to start afresh with a clean slate.
Names are subject to the site’s usual rules about behaviour and language, and will be available on a first come, first served basis.
Name Change Update
Removal of local hand histories
As part of the ecology changes partypoker will no longer be offering the option for players to obtain/download hand histories.
This means that databases cannot be created to analyse players and HUDs will no longer work across the dotcom liquidity.
A new redesigned hand replayer was recently introduced in respect of this change.
Prohibition of third-party software
Another change will see most third-party software prohibited from being used while playing on partypoker, with the exception of ‘partycaption’ and ‘StackAndTile’.
Suspected use of any other third-party software may result in permanent ban from the site.
Disabling of ‘railing’
As part of the update players will no longer be able to observe cash game tables that they are not sat at, also known as railing.
Country flags hidden
In addition, we’ve hidden country flags from the tournament lobby and have also removed the ‘mouse over’ display of country for a player's plate at the game table.
This further enforces the clean slate provided by the enforced screen name change and protects the identity of players, in particular those of low volume countries and playing at high stakes.
Four-colour deck hand replayer
partypoker recently introduced a redesigned hand replayer in support of the changes, which features a new four-colour deck in response to player feedback.
Four-colour deck hand replayer
Tuesday, May 28 sees the addition of the following features:
Redesigned hand replayer
We’ve introduced a redesigned hand replayer featuring optimised controls to provide a smoother playing experience.
The update brings a simplified dashboard that displays only vital information, while the game table, player plates and avatars have all been updated to give an exact visual replica of hands played.
In addition, the new replayer immediately displays the result of the last hand when launched from the poker table. This means players won't need to navigate through each action in the hand to see the outcome.
New hand replayer
New table dashboard
A separate dashboard has also been added to the game table that launches the hand replayer and also gives a snapshot view of recent hands played.
Thursday, 14 March sees the latest partypoker software update, which brings with it a raft of new features.
Short Deck poker hits the client.
This exciting cash game format is played with a reduced deck of cards, with all cards below “6” removed, leaving 36 cards to play with. The game plays almost identically to Texas Hold’em, except a flush beats a full house and there is no small or big blind. Instead, everyone pays an ante (in addition to a button ante) to help generate action. This is a game that has increased in popularity in the high stakes world and now we’re bringing it to the masses.
Short Deck lobby
Players will be able to multi-select tournaments filters once they have downloaded the new partypoker software, allowing them to select multiple category options from the tournament lobby.
For example, players can now select “Monster Series” and Power Series” simultaneously, and all the multi-table tournaments from these categories will be displayed.
Buy-in changes for tournament filters
The buy-in filters have been slightly tweaked to represent the stake ranges as follows:
- 'Super Micro' changed from $0.01 - $0.99 to $0.01 - $1.99
- 'Micro' changed from $1.00 - $4.99 to $2.00 - $4.99
Tournament Filter update
Coloured tournament & fastforward names (tournaments lobby)
Prefixes and suffixes of tournament names are displayed in different colours to allow players to identify various tournament parameters such as tournament name, tournament series (if any), guarantee (if any) etc.
This update will allow players to play poker as well as multiple casino games at once within the poker app. This allows players to:
- Resize the casino Windows to the same size as poker games and the default size will be the same as poker games, without disturbing the components and button positions in casino games.
- Tile the casino Windows with poker games, tiling will tile all casino and poker games.
- Cascade the casino Windows with poker games, cascading will cascade all casino Windows and poker tables.
Have a look below at the exciting updates that you can take full advantage of from February 2019!
The main partypoker lobby has been given a new and improved ‘look and feel’ with the addition of partypoker branding in the new and updated product navigation, making it easier to select games, in addition to a new cashback progress bar with partypoker branding.
In the new navigation, players can now select MyGame, providing access to a great new poker coaching tool to help players improve their game.
The software update will also see the site’s current “Sit & Go Jackpots” games rebranded as simply, “SPINS”. The games will now enjoy a smoother animation, and to celebrate the rebrand, partypoker has introduced a new $5 buy-in game with the potential to win a huge $1,000,000 first prize. Look out for more exciting “SPINS” announcements very soon.
