The refreshed next generation online poker product integrates great new features into real money gaming including a 1-Click Lobby and social features such as Missions and Achievements, Friends and much more. The new poker table also now sports a smooth racetrack shape and a cleaner table. Major highlights of the phase one release of the all new partypoker.com include:
Tailor-made games for a player all in one place! The 1-Click Lobby, unique to partypoker.com, offers the player all of their favourite games at a glance making finding a cash game or tournament to suit their style has ever been easier. With Filters and Favourites, players can highlight their preferred games and use the Favourites tab and lobby filters to narrow their search for the perfect table.
Missions give players targets to aim for, challenging them to try new things and improve their game. There's no pressure - players can go at their own pace and see where the next Mission takes them. Missions help players improve poker skills but there are also great extra rewards for completing them: cash; tournament tickets; bonuses; and more.
Poker is about the little victories and personal milestones where a win leaves the player with a great tale to tell: it's about a player's Achievements. Every time a player collects an Achievement, it will boost their score which they can show-off to their friends via their profile page and activity feeds.
Friends and Profile page
It's not only where the player goes that makes a great time, it's who they go there with as well. That's why we've made finding and making new friends easier than ever. Players can easily search and add friends via screen name, email address or by looking up contacts from their email address book.
Account / Rewards / Cashier:
We've completely revamped our other sections on the client in addition to the new features mentioned above. The account page now offers our players a one-stop location to provide a list of:
- Real Balance
- Loyalty Points
- New or active promotions
- Tournament dollars
- Messages in account inbox
There will be a select number of media exclusive focus groups on the new product in the coming weeks. To express an interest in this contact: email@example.com.
