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 have Casual Cash Games, which only allow you to play on a single cash game table. Since the professional grinders must all play many tables to show a worthwhile profit, this means that the average skill level on Casual Cash Game tables should be much lower. This network's promotions also typically target casual players.

Casual Cash Games make the @PartyPoker network ideal for recreational online poker players. Click to Tweet

If you are are hardcore grinder, then the bwin.party poker network is probably not the best network for you.

The Bwin.Party poker network offers a good selection of games for all table sizes, with No Limit hold’em poker the most active.

If you prefer full table poker, then No Limit Hold'em is your only option with bwin.party digital entertainment. However, there is plenty of activity for this game - only PokerStars offers a wider range of stakes for full table NLH.

If you enjoy 6-handed texas holdem at micro to small stakes, you will especially enjoy FastForward tables, where you are instantly taken to a new table as soon as you fold your hand. Unfortunately, FastForward poker is not available for full table or heads-up play. For regular 6-handed tables, the Bwin.Party poker network offers plenty of activity across a wide range of stakes for No Limit Hold'em, Pot Limit Omaha and Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo. In fact, the bwin.party poker network offers one of the widest range of active stakes for both 6-handed PLO and PLO8!

For heads-up play, the Bwin.Party poker network has lots of action for No Limit Hold'em, Fixed Limit Hold'em, and Pot Limit Omaha.

PartyPoker rake is average at best. After taking advantage of the great poker sign-up bonuses on either bwin.party digital entertainment poker site, you are probably better off playing cash games elsewhere. For example, the Winning Poker Network offers the lowest rake of any network we have reviewed so far.

Bwin.Party Poker Tournaments

The Bwin.Party poker network offers almost exclusively texas holdem tournaments. The network does offer a couple of Pot Limit Omaha and Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo tournaments each day, but if these are the types of tournaments you prefer, then you would be better off playing poker tournaments on a different network.

Breaks are coordinated, which is convenient for players who play multiple tables for long sessions. A 5 minute break is given to all tournament players from 5 minutes before each hour. Even better, the break starts when the last hand on all tables has been completed, so players are always guaranteed a full 5 minute break (although if playing multiple tables, the other tables may resume earlier).

The Party Poker network charge pretty standard fees for all tournaments, although bwin.party digital entertainment fees for tournaments <$1 are amongst the lowest available online.

Bwin.Party poker tournaments get anywhere from <100 entries to over a thousand, so you are guaranteed to find whatever size of tournament you prefer. However, if you decide to regularly play the larger field tournaments, you should learn about managing your poker tournament bankroll.
