Party Poker customers can take part in Power Series Hero Sit & Gos to win power series tickets worth up to $2,600.

CPP Leaderboard promotion runs from 22nd May to 13th August
CPP Leaderboard runs DAILY from (04:00 EST/ 10.00CET) and ends on the following day (03:59 EST / 09.59CET)
Only Power Series Tournaments qualify for Leaderboard points and are split as follows:
How do I earn Leaderboard Points?
Leaderboard Points = 10 * [√n/√rank] * [1+log (buy-in+0.25)]
n = Number of players in the Power Series tournament
Buy-in = cost of Power Series tournament buy-in
Rank – position finished in the Power Series tournament
Multiphase Tournaments do not count towards Leaderboard points
Tournaments with non-cash prizes, such as satellites, do not count towards Leaderboard points
Winners of the CPP leaderboard promotion will be credited the package winnings within 7 business days of the conclusion of the daily leaderboard
The first package won must be taken and used as advertised. Subsequent packages can be sold/transferred or can be used as an entry on another day.
Players who win tickets via the leaderboards will have 30 days to use their tickets. Tickets will expire thereafter
Tickets will not be converted to Tournament Dollars and must be used for CPP Live events.
Additionally, in the event that a player has already made Day 1 and they win an additional package via the LIVE satellites, the first package must be used. Any subsequent packages won can be sold/transferred or be used as a re-entry.
No cash alternative will be offered for subsequent packages
Packages can be transferred or sold to another partypoker or non-partypoker account holder
The Fast Five promotion from Party Poker gives customers the chance to buy in for five big blinds, instead of sitting down with 30-100 big blinds like in normal cash games. The advantage of playing with small stacks is that action happens at a very fast pace, and customers can double up within seconds of taking their seat.
The Party Poker loyalty program rewards customers when they earn points every time they play poker, casino or sports. Points can be exchanged for tourney tickets and cash. There are four levels within the loyalty scheme: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Palladium. Each level has a points requirement to be earned each month to maintain the level, or move up to the next level.
For a customer to progress from Bronze level to Silver level in a month, they would need to wager at least $25 on tournament fees and table charges ($1 in tournament fees and table charges = 2 points), as Silver level requires 50 points.
For a customer to progress to Palladium level they would need to earn 2000 points in a month, and so wager at least $1000 on tournament fees and table charges.Earn Loyalty Rewards
Party Poker’s Progressive Knockout tournaments give customers the opportunity to win big prize money at any moment. For every player a customer eliminates, they’ll win a cash prize plus their own bounty will increase.
|Time (CET)||Tournament Name||Starting Bounty||Progressive Bounty||Total Buy-in|
|21:00||$1,000 Gtd - Progressive KO: Featherweight||$2.50||$1.25||$5.50|
|21:00||$2,500 Gtd - Progressive KO: Middleweight||$10||$5||$22|
|21:00||$10,000 Gtd - Progressive KO: Heavyweight||$50||$25||$109|
|Time (CET)||Tournament Name||Starting Bounty||Progressive Bounty||Total Buy-in|

|21:00||$15,000 Gtd - Progressive KO: Heavyweight||$50||$25||$109|
Progressive Knockout tournaments work differently to regular knockout tournaments where players have a fixed bounty on their heads, and whoever knocks them out gets the cash bounty.
In the Progressive Knockout, if a player knocks another player out, instead of receiving the full bounty, the winning player will receive some of the bounty in cash and the rest is added to their own bounty. If the bounty is split 50/50 between a cash reward and being added to a progressive bounty, and two players each with a bounty of $5 come head to head and one is eliminated, the winning player will receive $2.50 in cash and have $2.50 added to their own bounty, making $7.50.Win Poker Bounties

Part of the world's largest publicly traded online gambling company, PartyPoker was launched in 2001 and based on revenue and player volume, is currently the third biggest poker brand behind only PokerStars and Full Tilt. They were the largest site, but opted to leave the US market in 2006 due to new anti-gambling laws that were introduced that year. Based in Gibraltar, PartyPoker merged with the Bwin sports and casino brand in 2010, becoming listed on the London Stock Exchange a few months later.
With up to 70,000 players online at peak times, $15 million in guaranteed tournament prizes each month and a varied selection of promotions and bonuses, PartyPoker customers can play all of the most popular versions of the game at lots of different prices, while making deposits and claiming back winnings through a very wide range of options.
Texas Holdem, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, Seven Card Stud, Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo, and their own speed poker game, called Fast Forward, can all be found here. PartyPoker are not part of any network and use their own software to power the games. This software is not quite state of the art, but is very stable with clear graphics and smooth animations. It offers everything that 99% of players will be looking for, but lacks the option to create your own avatars and the no-download version is somewhat limited in its functionality.
Games are accessed from a well-designed lobby area, where clients can see what tables are currently running, how many players are online at each, the buy-ins and any prize pots. There are also useful details on average pot size, hands played per hour, and what game type is being played. Search results can be fine-tuned to make finding the right table easier, with options to find cash tables, Sit and Go tables or tournaments.
The tournament schedule is also here and it is easy to filter them by game type or format, including Shootout, Rebuy and Heads Up, buy-ins and limit type, either fixed limit, no limit, or pot limit. No matter what game a player is looking for, they should be able to find their ideal play in just a few seconds and can even take a sneak preview of the action at each table before joining it.
Once at a table, competitors can select from a range of cartoon style avatars and alter the settings to see hand histories, statistics, notes, table size, or even play at up to 12 tables at once. A popular feature is the four colour option which turns diamond cards green and clubs blue making it less likely that any mistakes will be made. The Hot Hand Alert can be selected, which informs a multi-table player when they get a specific hand which they could otherwise miss, whilst other options include turning the chat functions on or off, stacking tables and using the keyboard to create shortcuts that can significantly speed up play.
New players can visit the poker school which will teach them the basic rules, the differences with each variant, poker tips, a guide to poker lingo and a useful introduction on how to use the lobby, schedule, and playing options to get the most from a game. With a constant stream of newcomers coming to PartyPoker, the play can be very soft, particularly at the lower limit tables, but occasionally at some of the mid-range no-limit and fixed-limit tables. High stakes action can be harder to find at the cash tables.
The PartyPoker software is multi-platform and can be downloaded to PCs using Windows, Apple Mac, or Linux operating systems.
Due to the sheer size of PartyPoker, they are able to offer bonuses and promotions that are more generous than many of their competitors. New customers can get a welcome bonus that is paid in increments the more they play, with 10% being added to their account once a set number of PartyPoints are earned. There are also exclusive freeroll tournaments for new players where they can practice using the software without the need to stake any of their own money.
PartyPoints are earned by all players at different rates depending on the game being played and the stakes, with higher stakes accumulating points far more quickly. Once a certain number of points have been earned, the player can then enter the Palladium VIP scheme, which gives them rakeback deals, free cashouts, higher deposit limits and merchandise from headphones to discounts on Harley Davidson bikes and Lamborghini cars. Regular players get to claim several extra rewards, like re-deposit bonuses, surprise cash payouts and credits to use in the PartyPoker casino and bingo rooms.
PartyPoker host lots of satellite tournaments, including World Poker Tour fixtures, guaranteed jackpot tournaments, and the famous PartyPoker.com 'Millions', played aboard a cruise ship.
Depositing funds into a PartyPoker account couldn't be any easier as they have a huge range of deposit and withdrawal options available. All major credit and debit cards can be used, as well as e-wallets, bank transfers and prepaid cards or vouchers. There are many local payment options available, allowing residents of numerous countries to use their preferred deposit methods, while withdrawals are processed quickly and securely, using 128-bit SSL encryption technology to keep client's details safe. All deposits and withdrawals, with the exception of bank wires, are free from any extra charges added on by PartyPoker, although the payment processor may have their own fees depending on the method used and the location of the player.
For an independent poker site not attached to any network, PartyPoker are one of the most popular choices in several countries. They have accumulated millions of players over the years and have tens of thousands online at peak times, ensuring a wide range of games and tournaments are running at all hours of the day.
The games are well presented with clear, if unimaginative, graphics and tables can be customised to suit the requirements of each user with ease. Banking is exceptionally easy and secure, as PartyPoker hold a license to operate from the Government of Gibraltar, one of the most respected online gaming jurisdictions in the world.
