Partypoker updates its Software and changes the alias of all users
During the month of June, Partypoker will perform a global update of its rooms. After this upgrade that will take place from June 17 at 10:00 CET, all users must change their alias and choose a new one which respects the new use of "appropriate language" regulations of Partypoker. For this reason some words will be blocked and will not be available.
Although PartyPoker hasn't carried out the "enhancement" yet, sources close to the company tell us that starting from the next update, PartyPoker will close the use of HUDS throughout their rooms, a measure on the other hand that was already heard after statements by Colette Stewart and Rob Young, partner and manager of Party respectively, during the last April.
But Not everything are overwhelming news, to compensate players, PartyPoker will celebrate the $500K Race to Alias for all .COM users who use real money accounts in exchange of renew their player name. The promotion is divided into three events: " Login Click Cards " where you can opt for prizes of up to $10000 in cash after the election of the new alias. On the other hand the "Hourly Click Cards ", which will be played between $10000 and $40000, in which you can accumulate 0.10 points of royalty per hour. In addition, the event also has the "$ 10K Freerolls ", where players who get tickets in the rest of the previous phases can participate. In total, the promotion offers $500.000 in free prizes for all new names that are materialize in the room until the 24-hour time limit of the event ends.
Partypoker players from Sweden and the Czech Republic will only be able to participate in their own version of the Race To Alias event organized for these countries, but they can also opt for $25.000 in prizes.
Along with all these changes that the room plans, the new Partypoker software update will bring with it great improvements in gameplay, with optimized controls to achieve a smoother gaming experience, along with a simplified control panel. And this is not all, because soon they will announce more changes and news.
In any case, if all this is not enough for you or, as Sheldon Cooper, you just don't like the changes, do not forget that with Habwin you will find more rooms like Pokerking or BestPoker in which to participate in daily tournaments and where it is still allowed the use of Programs like PokerTracker or Holdem Manager.
