Party Poker review
PartyPoker dates back to the dawn of online-poker in far 1997. Having become one of the largest operators, Party found itself near to the bankruptcy in 2006: it had to close the access for the US players and was forced to pay out multi-million penalties. The company managed to stay afloat then and is still afloat nowadays, and due to the absence of issues with the American law, PartyPoker will be the first in line if online-poker is legalized in the USA.
In 2011, PartyPoker merged with the Bwin company, creating the Bwin.Party corporation — the largest player in the field of online-gambling. The shares of the company are available on free sale on the stock exchange, which guarantees maximum safety of the players' funds.
To play at Bwin and Party you will need 2 separate gambling and 2 financial accounts. Thus, you get the opportunity to play in the largest European field of recreational players on special conditions provided by WorldPokerDeals, even if you already had registered an account in any of these rooms.
PartyPoker is one of the few poker rooms with growing traffic at the moment. By his size he is very close to 888poker. The peak of the traffic is on the evening time in Europe. At that, USD remains the main currency of PartyPoker, while at Bwin it is possible to open an account in EUR, but the games are played in USD.
