PartyPoker New Software in Beta Test

PartyPoker’s new software is now in beta test and the first images of the new look and feel are now available.PartyPoker's Kara Scott looking good

Last month Rakeback.com reported that the new software was planned to launch in August. It looks like that deadline will be missed, but the upgrade can’t be very far away.

The biggest change is not visible: the software has been rewritten from the ground up. The result should be a much faster and reliable platform that PartyPoker can use as a basis for future innovation and development.

The preview pics show that the social side of poker is going to be a big part of Party’s new strategy. Playing with friends should be much easier and a social board will enable post game discussion and debate just like it happens in home games.

A new feature, “Missions and Achievements” should encourage friendly competition, although what these will consist of remains unknown.

Getting started on a table is going to be much easier with a completely redesigned lobby. A series of tiles provides access to your favorite game, or a recommended alternative with a single click of the mouse.

The overall table design looks familiar and appears not to have changed radically. The new colors look easier on the eye, and the screenshot below appears to be less cluttered than the old version.

All in all, players can look forward to a much improved playing experience, perhaps restoring PartyPoker to its former glory as the world’s favorite online poker room.

The address of the beta test website was revealed by poker news site, pokerfuse.
