partypoker has today launched the revolutionary new mobile experience for its quickfire ‘fastforward’ cash games, as part of ongoing efforts to deliver a best-in-class experience for all players on mobile.
The release represents the next phase in partypoker’s commitment to delivering an engaging and improved mobile experience following the release of SPINS in November last year.
As part of today’s update players can now enjoy fastforward cash games in portrait mode across iOS and Android to enable single-handed play, bringing the games in line with SPINS.
The update also sees the introduction of an improved fastforward games lobby, available in carousel or tiled view to make it cleaner for players when selecting their game of choice. Players can now play both SPINS and fastforward simultaneously, switching seamlessly between the two.
In addition, partypoker’s innovative in-game currency, ‘Diamonds’, comes to fastforward for the first time. Diamonds are earned based on number of hands played and spent on in-game benefits like throwing a variety of animations at opponents, while players on mobile can now also try out new gamified features such as bubble chat, emojis and all-in animations.
Together these features make for an altogether richer gaming experience, enjoying a new suite of graphics, sounds and animations.
partypoker’s mobile product overhaul continues to serve as a major company focus, and the operator will be soliciting feedback from the poker community as it looks to optimise and further improve the product. The product has already been tested by a select group of players in beta mode, including various members of Team partypoker.
partypoker Team Online’s Jaime Staples said: “This app brings poker on your phone into the modern age. The experience of just being able to play with one finger is something I have never had the chance to experience before. It’s so simple and intuitive! It’s by far the best poker app I have played on my phone. So simple to use and fun!”
Jeff Gross, also of Team Online, said: “This app changes the poker experience for the user in a big way. Mobile poker tech has been archaic, and this makes you really say WOW when you play it. Refreshing and fun, the biggest shake-up in poker I have seen in a long time!”
Team partypoker’s João Simão added: “I had the pleasure to be part of the test team of the new mobile app and gave my feedback to try to improve the beta version. It was a great surprise when I got to test, and I’m sure that you will all love it. I saw the team working hard to create an app that gives the best experience for our customers, and I’m confident that it will be the result. I hope you guys enjoy.”
