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.

Although the @PartyPoker removed Casual Cash Games, their promotions suggest they are still interested primarily in casual players as opposed to grinders. Click to Tweet

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

Bwin.Party Poker Rake

 
Active Tables (6-Handed):
  NL Hold'em   1¢/2¢ - $2/$5
  NLH (Speed)   2¢/5¢ - 50¢/$1
  NLH (Casual)   1¢/2¢ - 50¢/$1
  FL Hold'em   5¢/10¢
  PL Omaha   1¢/2¢ - $25/$50
  PL Omaha Hi/Lo   5¢/10¢ - 50¢/$1
 
Active Tables (Heads-Up):
  NL Hold'em   25¢/50¢ - $10/$25
  NLH (Casual)   25¢/50¢ - 50¢/$1
  FL Hold'em   $3/$6 - $30/$60
  PL Omaha   5¢/10¢ - 50¢/$1

The Bwin.Party poker network no longer offers full table cash games. However, they do offer a good selection of games for all 6-handed and heads-up play, with No Limit hold’em poker the most active.

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 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.

Every poker tournament on the @PartyPoker network has a guaranteed prize pool! Click to Tweet

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.

Bwin.Party Poker Network Sit & Go's

 
Sit & Go (SNG) Formats:
  Single Table (ST)
  Double or Nothing (D/N)
 
Active SNGs (Full Table):
  NL Hold'em (ST)   $1.10 - $22
  NL Hold'em (D/N)   $1.10 - $11
 
Active SNGs (6-Handed):
  NL Hold'em (ST)   $1.10 - $109
  NL Hold'em (D/N)   $1.10 - $109
 
Active SNGs (Heads-Up):
  NL Hold'em (ST)   $1.10 - $1,050

The bwin.party digital entertainment network only offers No Limit Texas Hold'em sit and go's. However, they offer a wide range stakes with plenty of activity.

The Bwin.Party poker network also offers a wide range of stakes with plenty of activity for Double or Nothing SNGs.

You won't find a wider range of active 6-max Double or Nothing SNGs than the @PartyPoker network! Click to Tweet

Sit & Go fees on the bwin.party poker network are fairly standard. They offer some of the lowest fees for full-handed SNGs with buy-ins <$4 and buyiins >$30. However, the network's fees for heads-up sit-and-go's are quite high (unless you plan to buy-in for >$200, in which case bwin.party offer the lowest fees).
