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
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.
Those players who play multi-table tournaments via the partypoker mobile app will be delighted to learn we have added our deal making facility to both the Android and iOS-powered app.
This innovative new feature allows mobile app users to:
- Initiate deals
- View deal breakdowns
- Accept or decline deals
- Edit deal offerings (chip leader only)
- Create custom deals (chip leader only)
- Create and accept or decline post-deal payouts (chip leader only)
