Party Poker is one of the largest and most respected online poker sites, winner of the “Poker Operator of the Year 2009″ and run by the London Stock Exchange listed company, PartyGaming PLC. Once the great leader in America for online poker, PartyPoker greatly suffered with the introduction of the UIGEA and consequently moved its headquarters out of America. Since then PartyPoker has maintained a very high player base and ranks in the top 3 for its poker traffic. This has been achieved by a combination of a top notch VIP scheme and an endless list of promotions that eclipse many of the other poker sites.
A standard month at PartyPoker would see anywhere between $1 Million-$4 Million worth of cash giveaways and promotions in the form of freerolls, rake races and other special tournaments. PartyPoker purchased the WPT in 2009 and free tournament packages are regularly on offer. Furthermore, PartyPoker is the best place to win a seat to one of the many WPT events through the regular satellites running.
PartyGaming merged with other gaming giant, Bwin, to form the largest online gambling corporation in the world. Furthermore, with the recent changes in the where US and at Pokerstars/Full Tilt Poker, online poker traffic is expected to flood to PartyPoker. As a result the future looks extremely bright for PartyPoker and PartyGaming and it won’t be long before Party Poker is the biggest poker site in the world.
One thing you can be certain of when depositing at PartyPoker is that you money will be completely secure, as with all the carefully chosen sites we display on pokerbonus.org.
Poker Bonus and VIP Scheme – (9/10)
Sign up and deposit through a pokerbonus.org link and get an exclusive 100% up to $500 bonus.
Exclusive Party Poker Bonus Code April 2013 for PokerBonus.org players: PPNOW
Poker Bonus: PartyPoker offers a fantastic 100% match bonus on your first deposit up to $500. The minimum deposit to take advantage of this bonus is $25, but you should deposit at least $500 to get the most free money from PartyPoker, even if you do not intend to play with all $500.
Bonus Clearing – The bonus is separated into 10 separate segments. For example if you deposited $500 then you would unlock the sign-up bonus in $50 instalments. To unlock each bonus you need to earn 8 times the PartyPoints of the cash value of the segment. For example, you would need to earn 400 PartyPoints ($200 rake) to unlock a $50 bonus.
The sign-up bonus is therefore equivalent to 25% rakeback and therefore clears a lot faster than the bonuses at other poker sites, which are typically equivalent to around 15% rakeback. You have a generous 120 days to clear the sign-up bonus, which should be ample time.
VIP Scheme: The PartyPoker VIP scheme is fantastic and has recently been overhauled to offer a whopping 50% rakeback in cash prizes when you are at the highest VIP level. VIP levels range from Bronze to the coveted Palladium Elite.
Each time you play poker at a cash table or in a tournament, you will earn 2 PartyPoints for every $1 of rake/tournament fees generated. These PartyPoints can either be used to purchase cash prizes directly, or can be spent in the PartyPoker store for items ranging from tournament entries to cool gifts and gadgets.
The available cash rewards can be seen in the following table. Note that for a given number of points, you can either purchase instant cash that is added straight away to your account, or you can purchase a larger cash bonus. The larger cash bonus only requires you to earn 25% of the bonus cost in points and you can still use these points for extra VIP purchases. We would recommend purchasing the bonus in-order to increase your Party Poker rakeback and as you can see, the difference in cashback is quite significant:
|Eligible key levels||Points||Instant Cash||Bonus||Instant Cash Rakeback %||Bonus Cash Rakeback %|
Promotions – (10/10)
PartyPoker has the best promotions out of any online poker site, with millions of dollars given away each month in a wide range of promotions, from freerolls and rake races to specialized PartyPoker events.

This is one of the many advanced features that the PartyPoker software offers. Overall, the software is one of the best in the industry, if not the best.
Easy Competition – (9/10)
