partypoker: features of the new mobile poker client
So far, the partypoker mobile app was updated only for Android devices and only affected the SPINS lobby. The lobby of all other games will be updated in early 2020, starting with fast-fold poker (fastforward), then regular cash tables, and tournaments.
But we can already check the main features and novelties of the new platform; besides commenting on the new user interface, the developers also highlighted several new features:
- Portrait table mode;
- Possibility of multitabling up to 4 tables;
- New hand replayer;
- Chat using standard messages;
- Throw objects to players;
- Rabbit Hunt to view the board after all players folded;
- Special currency: Diamond.
The first three options may interest regular players, and the following ones are aimed to attract and retain amateur players, mainly because they are linked in some way. Players will earn Diamonds based on the results of various missions and can spend them to use the Rabbit Hunt feature.
partypoker representatives were the first to test the new client and called it the market's best mobile application. Judging by the previous screenshots and the list of new features, it's clear that partypoker inspired its new platform that brings together the best practices of other mobile apps.
For example, it's undeniable that many new features are long-time implemented on Chinese poker apps like PPPoker or PokerMaster, as well as the use of alternative currencies like gems, crystals, or diamonds.
The introduction of these new features proves that the online poker industry is changing and that Chinese poker apps are more disruptive than we thought. Of course, partypoker will get more traffic by adding these new features that have been successful in other sites. This also opens the doors to a new gaming platform for desktop PCs that runs an outdated engine released almost ten years ago.
