Party Poker UK Review 2017
PartyPoker UK was established way back in 2001, and runs on it's own software. The poker site is part of the publically traded PartyGaming Plc located in Gibraltar and is widely known and recognised as one of the market leading online poker sites in the United Kingdom.
The PartyPoker UK lobby resembles no other. Many features can be customised to your liking and navigation is easy. PartyCasino, Gammon, Bingo and Bets are accessible from within the lobby and are only a click of the mouse away. Here's some of the reasons we love PartyPoker.com:
- Huge game variety and massive tournaments
- A great free £250 welcome bonus
- Excellent security & safety.

Games and Tournaments
UK PartyPoker offers a good variety of games, $0.02/0.04 to $25/50 NLHE tables are plentiful as well as Omaha/Omaha Hi-Lo games from $0.10/0.20 up to $10/20 PL & $30/60 FL. If you are a low-mid stakes NL player, you will always have many hundred ring games to choose from, day or night. The higher limit tables also run somewhat regularly. Plenty of active Omaha games up to $2/4 run 24/7, above that rarely. Overall, traffic is very high, many thousand players gather here at peak hours.
Tournament players, do not fear. There are plenty of MTTs to join, everything from freeroll tournaments to speed tournaments to guaranteed ones. Lots of qualifiers, both MTTs and STTs to PartyPoker's flagship tournaments, the $300K "Guaranteed Sunday" and the "PartyPoker Million". Daily higher buy-in tournament from $150-$300 exist for those who prefer.

Player Skill Levels
PartyPoker is a great site for poker players looking to build up their bankroll with a few easy wins. You can find loose games at a range of stakes, and even the mid limit games still attract a lot of inexperienced players. If you're after a more serious challenge, the higher stakes are where it's at to test your skills against more advanced players.CLICK HERE TO PLAY NOW
Promotions and Support
The current PartyPoker UK sign-up bonus is 100% up to £250. Deposit $500 to receive the maximum poker bonus and play 1,000 raked hands to release it (10 raked hands for every bonus dollar). Occasional reloads are offered, mostly completely random that seem to nothing to do with how much you rake, or how many hands you play. I call them 'surprise bonuses' because that's what they are. Ranging from free money to deposit matches in the $100s with low wagering requirements usually makes them pleasant and welcome surprises.
PartyPoker UK support/customer service is good, especially if you choose to contact them by phone. There is a freephone number to call from just about anywhere in Europe and Canada. Email support is so-so, sometimes you'll get an answer right away and sometimes not at all. This, of course, is not something PartyPoker should be proud of, as getting help is not supposed to be a lottery or a 50/50 chance.
Like all of the great poker sites we offer, PartyPoker has a zero tolerance policy toward any form of cheating, and their tables are fair and balanced for players of all skill levels.
Fund your PartyPoker account using VISA/Mastercard, Neteller, Entropay, ewire, ClickandBuy or Bank Transfer. As always, withdrawals to e-wallets are the fastest, somewhere around 2-4 hrs. Cashouts to VISA and by Bank Wire takes a couple of days, as usual, but cheques can take from 2-3 weeks.
PartyPoker - Our Conclusion
Party Poker UK lost a big chunk of it's clientele after uncle Frist's 2006 coup (the UIGEA) ruled out US Players, but none-the-less it continues to offer a well-run poker site. As mentioned above, traffic is very high around the clock combined with fast e-cashouts and an excellent phone support department, PartyPoker receives a well-above average rating. We do recommend playing here and we'd give it marginally over 4 stars.
Overall Rating: 4.5/5
