August 2018 - Windows
At partypoker, we are continuously looking for ways to improve our product in line with player feedback. In our latest update, we have made a number of software improvements to enhance the player experience.
The key highlights of our August update include:
Chips / Big Blind toggle
Players can now toggle between displaying their chip stack and the number of big blinds they have - simply left click on the chip stack to make this change! This change will only apply to the table where the adjustment has been made. Also, the option to apply the changes across all tables has now been added into Table Options. Players can choose to apply the changes to different formats of poker, or across all tables.
partypoker Ambassador, Patrick Leonard loves the new feature: "It’s much more important for tournament players in particular to understand how many big blinds they have, and being able to toggle with a single button click means players don't have to try and calculate how many big blinds they have left. Anything that makes the game simpler to play, is a positive development"
Brand new table
Initially for PC, we’ve upgraded many aspects of our table. This includes a more modern player plate with larger hole cards, improvements to player notes, bet slider changes and a customisable table felt and background, which all contribute to an improved overall table aesthetic.
All of these updates will also be delivered for Mac users very soon.
Old table vs new table
Custom buy-in range
This feature allows you to filter tournaments to only display a specific buy-in range, making it incredibly simple to find your next game. This is available as a direct pop-up, but has also been integrated into the buy-in range filter.
Custom buy-in range
Experience a tournament format that is new to partypoker. The number of seats on the table reduces after a set blind level, for example, play switches from 8-handed to 6-handed after blind level 10.
Players can try out Mix-Max for the first time during POWERFEST this September, and it’s available across all devices.
Showdown on Checkdown
If a cash game hand is "checked down" to a showdown on the River, both players will now reveal their hands. Players’ hands will also be available to view in the hand history and instant hand replayer.
12 SNG Jackpot Games
Players can now select up to 12 Sit & Go Jackpot games at the same time.
We have made a number of other enhancements to our poker client, including pop-out filters on Mac and a new digital countdown timer. It’s not just feature improvements, we have also fixed a number of bugs.
