Here’s partypoker Team Online’s Jaime Staples talking through some of the exciting new features in the latest partypoker software release

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

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.

Tuesday, May 28 sees the addition of the following features:

Redesigned hand replayer

We’ve introduced a redesigned hand replayer featuring optimised controls to provide a smoother playing experience.

The update brings a simplified dashboard that displays only vital information, while the game table, player plates and avatars have all been updated to give an exact visual replica of hands played.

In addition, the new replayer immediately displays the result of the last hand when launched from the poker table. This means players won't need to navigate through each action in the hand to see the outcome.

New table dashboard

A separate dashboard has also been added to the game table that launches the hand replayer and also gives a snapshot view of recent hands played.

Thursday, 14 March sees the latest partypoker software update, which brings with it a raft of new features.

Short Deck

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.

Multi-select categories

Players will be able to multi-select tournaments filters once they have downloaded the new partypoker software, allowing them to select multiple category options from the tournament lobby.

For example, players can now select “Monster Series” and Power Series” simultaneously, and all the multi-table tournaments from these categories will be displayed.

Buy-in changes for tournament filters

The buy-in filters have been slightly tweaked to represent the stake ranges as follows:

  • 'Super Micro' changed from $0.01 - $0.99 to $0.01 - $1.99
  • 'Micro' changed from $1.00 - $4.99 to $2.00 - $4.99
Tournament Filter update

Tournament Filter update

Coloured tournament & fastforward names (tournaments lobby)

Prefixes and suffixes of tournament names are displayed in different colours to allow players to identify various tournament parameters such as tournament name, tournament series (if any), guarantee (if any) etc.


New oval table

The latest update sees the introduction of the new oval table, combined with updated player plates and layout.

If you're a fan of the racetrack view you will be pleased to know that this remains an option under table themes.


Oval table

Modern player plates

Player plates have been updated to display chips and screen names more clearly. Chip values are now larger and brighter, with the increased visibility allowing for easier multitabling.


Hole cards are now easier to distinguish, and you have the option to display hole cards side by side by turning off display player image under table themes.



Improved player notes

You now have the option to colour code your opponent's player plates making players you have notes on much clearer. In addition to this, hovering over aliases now allows you to view player notes without opening the note panel, allowing quick, detailed viewing of all player notes on a table.


Player notes

New card decks

Card decks have been updated to work with the new table theme. You can select from one of the following via the theme tab, under 'Settings':

  • Classic (Default)
  • Inverted
  • Modern

All options will be available in both 4-colour & standard deck variants.


Card deck customisation

New navigation and filters

The collapsible filters allow you to clearly and quickly apply your new settings and to find the games you want to play.


New navigation and filters

Additional data points in cash game lobby

There’s now more information readily available to players looking to join a cash game! Stats such as the average pot size and the percentage of players seeing the average flop are now clearly displayed in the lobby.

New Darker lobby & table theme

Overall, the contrast improves the readability and visual appeal of key information. In addition, the actual gameplay experience is further enhanced by a traditional green felt table and a more prominent player plate, indicating the player’s turn.

New navigation and filters

  • By removing the left-hand navigation and relocating secondary information into a dropdown menu, we’ve created a wider area in which to display game information in a more accessible, visually-pleasing way.
  • Players will have more immediate access to T$
  • The play money lobby has been updated with the same navigation as the real money lobby to provide a more authentic experience.

New navigation and filters

New & improved casino

The new format provides a more personalised gaming experience by allowing players to see their recently played games and gives them the ability to mark their favourites for quick and easy access.

Improved Sit & Go Jackpot lobby

We’ve made it easier for players to differentiate between 3 and 4-handed games, whilst also giving them the option to select more than 4 games.


Improved Sit & Go lobby

Easier My Account Access

A dropdown menu right from the username (rather than the previous left-hand navigation) allows players to quickly access their My Account and Loyalty Rewards info.


Easy account access

Removal of One-click lobby

Due to its unpopularity amongst players, the One-click Lobby was removed and replaced with this simpler, cleaner option that’s easy to navigate and visually appealing.

Enhanced security enabled on local machine

Depending on your computer’s operating system you may need to allow for security checks. If the flagged file has the name PL.exe, it is our software and can be trusted.
