WPN Poker SItesMost people think of Party Poker as a standalone room, but it's actually the lead room on a small network of sites.  To learn more about the Party Poker Network (also known as the Party / bwin Network), keep reading for details on how the network operates, the games and promotions offered at Party Poker Network rooms and finally a complete list of the sites that share the network.

Those who are new to the idea of a poker network should refer to our overview of online poker networks before reading on.  The Party / bwin Network is made up of just a handful of rooms, with Party Poker and bwin Poker leading the pack.  Other recognizable names include Empire Poker and WPT Poker.  The rooms all use the same software and have a common player pool.

Party Poker was at one point the largest poker site in the world.  It no longer holds that title, but the room - and therefore, the network that it fronts - remains a powerful force in the industry.  WIth enough traffic to maintain a spot in the top three, Party draws raves from customers for excellent game selection, high-quality customer service and efficient, secure banking choices.

Party / bwin Poker Network Overview

Party / bwin Poker Network: Software Highlights

Party Poker provides users with a top-notch software platform that benefits from years and years of testing and improvement.  Some of the features that help to set Party apart from other rooms include: Anonymous heads-up cash tables, fold and show, customizable lobby views, numerous tools for multi-tabling and a variety of unique tournament formats.

When it comes to fast-fold, Party was a little late to the game.  However, the room finally launched their fast-fold client - Fast Forward Poker - in summer of 2012.  Early reviews of the functionality are favorable, with an enormous amount of traffic shifting almost immediately to the fast-fold tables following the launch of Fast Forward.

Traffic and Games at Party / bwin Rooms

With the third-largest lobby of all online poker rooms, players at Party Poker rarely lack for the game of their choice.  The room does not host high-stakes cash games, and buy ins for MTTs and SNGs tend to fall in the $5-$30 range.  You'll find higher-priced options during major tournament events or special promotion periods like the runup to the World Series of Poker.

As for variety, no limit hold'em is the dominant game at the room, but omaha players will also find a nice suite of options - especially at peak time.  Party Poker Network rooms also offer a few stud options, but traffic to that corner of the lobby is fairly anemic.

Shared Promotions and Bonuses at Party / bwin Rooms

You'll find just about the same promotions and bonuses at all rooms on the network.  A few of the more popular offerings available at Party / bwin Network rooms:

  1. Welcome Bonus:  Details may vary slightly by room, but the basic bonus on your first deposit at Party Poker is generally a 100% bonus with a cap of $500 for your total bonus. Party Poker also has low deposit requirements.
  2. $100k Freeroll Schedule:  Each month you'll find at least $100k worth of freeroll prize pools available in the Party Poker Network tournament lobby.
  3. Bankroll Booster:  One of the more popular promotions in online poker, the Bankroll Booster puts up $5k each week and gives players a number of fun (and achievable) ways to claim their share of the prize.
  4. VIP Program:  With reward rates that top out at over 50% when fully maximized, the VIP program at Party Network rooms is a favorite for regular players focused on getting the most value possible from their online poker play.
