Watch our video tutorial for everything you need to know.
How does it work?
First off just open the partypoker app, head to the lobby and start registering to tourneys or cash games as usual.
To open a second game you have two options. If you’re playing a cash game and you want to add a similar table, just tap the “+” sign in the mini table view and the table will automatically load – you just to select your seat and buy-in. If you want to play something different, simply go back to the lobby and select the game of your choice.
If you return to the main menu you’ll still receive alerts when the action is on you, so you won’t miss a hand.
As soon as your second game begins the mini table view on the left-hand side will be updated. To head back to the main menu at any time just tap the return arrow in the top left.
Mini table view
The mini table view contains all the key information you need at a glance for each tourney and cash game you’re in. You’ll be able to see all of your hole cards at once alongside the number of players, timer, status and the position of the currently active player which is indicated by an orange dot. White dots show a player’s still in the hand whilst grey dots indicate those who have folded.
The active table at any given time is highlighted in the mini table view by an orange bar. When a table begins to turn orange it means it’s your turn to act, and the more it fills up the closer you are to running out of time. You’ll also notice different sounds for active and non-active tables.
Swipe to fold
Swipe right on any hand in the mini table sidebar to reveal the ‘Fold’ button, then tap it to muck your hand. This lets you quickly fold your weaker hands at other tables without leaving the main (active) table.
Customisable bet slider
To help you bet accurately and quickly we’ve included 3 different ways to size your bets:
- Bet slider – drag the bet slider right to increase the bet size or left to decrease it
- +/- buttons – hit the + button to gradually increase the bet size or the – button to reduce it
- Custom buttons – three buttons based on pot size which can be customised to your liking
Swipe or tap between tables
There are two ways to navigate between tables. To make a table active simply tap on the mini table you want to focus on. Alternatively you can swipe up and down to go through all of your tables, which are stacked vertically for a smooth transition.
Got a particular type of game you love? Our intuitive app lets you add a similar table in one tap! Hit the + symbol in the bottom left to add a new game similar to those you’re already playing. Once the new table is added, you’ll need to tap ‘Accept’ to take your seat.
Hand-pick your seat at cash games and the app will automatically rotate the table to display your seat in the lower centre of the screen, close to the action buttons.
Whenever the action is on you at a table you’ll receive an alert, whether the table is active or not. Even if you’re in the lobby you’ll receive an alert, so you won’t miss a hand again!
Back to table
To make sure you can always get back to the action quickly we’ve included a ‘back to table’ button that is always accessible in every lobby screen. This lets you browse other tourneys and cash tables and hop back to your seat with one quick tap.
Hit one of the pre-select buttons then move to another table and you’ll automatically act when the action gets to you. ‘Fold’ or ‘Check’ your more straightforward hands in advance leaving you time to focus on your other tables.
How to sit out
To sit out tap on the top-right options icon sitouticon and select ‘Sit out’. There are two options to sit back at a table:
- Tap the blue ‘I’m back’ button in the bottom left of the screen
- Tap the ‘Sit in’ icon on the right-hand side
How to leave table
To leave a table tap on the top-right options icon leaveicon and select ‘Leave’. You will then be asked to confirm you want to leave the table. Tap ‘Yes’ to leave or tap ‘No’ to play on.
