We do not recommend playing on either of the Bwin.Party Poker network sites. Instead we strongly recommend that you download Americas Cardroom. Although the Winning Poker Network has slightly less traffic than the Bwin.Party network, they more than make up for this with significantly lower rake and fees, and much higher rewards.

However, if traffic is your primary concern, then you should instead download PokerStars. Although the rewards on PokerStars are not nearly as good as those offered by Americas Cardroom, they have about 5 times the amount of traffic as PartyPoker and BWIN!
To find out why we no longer recommend the Bwin.Party poker network, we suggest reading the entire review. However, if you want to play poker on the Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment network anyway, you can do so by clicking on the download button below:
Thanks to TV ads and sponsorship of live events like the World Poker Tour, Party Poker was the first online poker site to capitalize on the poker boom and became one of the biggest online poker sites. Atlhough they are no longer the largest poker room, PartyGaming's 2011 merger with bwin makes this one of the largest online poker networks. All of the sites on the Bwin.Party poker network are operated by the same company (GVC Holdings, which acquired Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment in 2016).
Since the 2011 merger, the Bwin.Party poker network appears to be targeting casual players. They introduced Casual Cash Games, which only allowed you to play on a single cash game table. Since the professional grinders must all play many tables to show a worthwhile profit, this meant that the average skill level on Casual Cash Game tables should be much lower. Unfortunately, they have since removed this format. However, the bwin.party network continues to target more casual players with their promotions. However, even casual players will earn far more rewards on sites like Americas Cardroom.
So whether you are a casual online poker player, or a hardcore grinder, then the bwin.party poker network is probably not the best poker network for you. To find out which poker site offers you the lowest effective rake (rake/fees - all rewards), click here.
