When I posted up a sneak preview of PartyPoker’s new table, due for launch this week, it whooshed around the internet and generated a fantastic buzz. Forums, blogs, strategy and news sites – everyone had a view and the feedback (such as your comments on this blog) was generally very positive. Thank you for your input.
There is a lot more to come from PartyPoker, and a major focus of our new look will be in the lobby. In fact, we’ve totally revamped the lobby to make it easier to navigate and personalize – plus, we’re introducing some neat new features that we think will greatly enhance your online poker experience.
The Browse view of the new PartyPoker lobby
Here are just some of goodies you can expect:
* The new Quick Seat feature allows you to set up and store your preferences so you’ll be able to sit at your preferred game in seconds.
* With our exclusive table preview, you’ll be able to look at any table in real time within the lobby – meaning you can test the waters before diving in!
* We’ve now integrated all your account/cashier/promotion and bonus information into the lobby.
* You can now resize the lobby, and there are two viewing styles available to you – List and Browse – each with loads of preferences so you’ll have as much or as little detail as you want.
* There will now be time zone support in the lobby.
There are also some more features to tell you about on the new table as well. Hot Hands will be a great tool for those who like to multi table, giving you an alert if something important (like being dealt aces) has happened on one of your tables. You’ll be able to customise this feature to work just the way you want it to.
Also, you’ll be able to open up similar tables to the one you are currently playing on. Say, for example, you are playing a no limit 25c/50c full ring game – simply click on the Open New button on the table, and another 25c/50c table with available seating will open up!
Plus, we’re introducing keyboard shortcuts so you’ll have the option to use these when it’s your turn to act.
