Partypoker continues to make big changes to the online world of poker. It has now welcomed the players in the New Year with many new options on the platform.
Partypoker has now introduced the ‘Running It Twice’ option in its platform. With this option, players would be able to run the community cards that are still to come twice if two or more all-in and has been made available for fast-forwarded. This is one of the fresh and interesting things that have been introduced to the platform. It will be soon available for mobile clients and cash games as well.
This is an easy option to click during the gameplay. It is also like the switch PartyPoker offer from big blinds to chips from the game point of view. However, it has to be enabled in the pot to let it happen. However, once it is enabled, the pot would be split into two and the remaining cards that are left to compete are played out. Each of the winning players would rake in the half pot. Well, that could be the same player as well.
There are other features that are interesting for Partypoker as well. PLO8 and NLO8 Progressive Knockouts are also coming to Partypoker. A slicker way to play fast forward games is already in the cards along with many others.
There is new ‘In the Money’ Calculator as well and it is color-coded at the top-left corner of the screen. This shows the position, how many players are remaining in the tournament and how many will cash as well. This also changes to how much the player is currently cashing for, how much is the next pay-jump for the player and also the bounties that have been collected.
The observers have now termed the Partypoker’s Orange Diamond as the new challenger of the Red Spade team. This came after Pokerstars moved to less recognized Team Pros. However, the war between Orange Diamond and Red Spread may determine the online world of poker. It is being even said that the online market of the Pokerstars may be threatened by the party poker.
It has been often spoken about healthy completion in the market. It hasn’t really happened so far. Pokerstars has remained a brand especially in terms of live poker. However, the MILLIONS of Partypoker became one of the biggest success stories in 2019 with a big amount of money awarded. This is certainly going to continue in 2020 as well. On the other hand, 888Poker has the World Series of Poker Event in 2020 as well. But Partypoker under Amaya has indicated that the focus isn’t only on poker and they are also moving towards Sports Betting and Casino Games options as well.
However, despite that PokerStars has the majority online poker share market. Neither Partypoker nor 888Poker has able to dent the business of the former.
However, changes from Partypoker might turn things around. In December, Partypoker introduced changes that addressed the need of the players first. This might be a reason for the players to move towards the Partypoker website.
Partypoker is certainly looking towards a success story in 2020.
