Over the past few months, partypoker has been busy behind the scenes working on an overhaul to its mobile poker app, and as a member of Team partypoker I was among the players asked to try out and provide feedback on the exciting product development.
Initially SPINS is the first to receive the upgraded treatment, and benefits from new features designed to make these games more enjoyable for players, including bubble chat and emojis. I also like the new ‘rabbit-hunting’ feature that reveals which cards are dealt after a hand is over. In my opinion this a great feature as it keeps people engaged to find out if they made a good fold or not and makes you think about your play.
In addition, a new in-game currency ‘Diamonds’ have been introduced, which you can earn by completing tasks and spend on benefits like viewing those undealt rabbit-hunt cards.
My favourite new feature is throwing things at your opponents, like fish and sharks. I think this adds a social element of fun to the game where you can interact with each other in a light-hearted way.
I’m also a fan of the new portrait layout option partypoker has added that allows for single-hand play, which makes it much easier to play on the go and you can now multi-table up to four tables simultaneously with the update.
Overall the product is more social-friendly and benefits from richer graphics, animations and sounds, while design features such as a new centralised ‘raise bar’ and redesigned hand replayer I feel make for a more improved poker experience.
The new product is available to play now on iOS and Android so have a look for yourself.
See you at the tables,
Sam Trickett, Team partypoker
