On Saturday, October 8th, Party Poker launched a new software platform exclusively for Party Poker players. Players logged on from Empire Poker, EuroBet, Multi-Poker, or Intertops will no longer be able to share tables with Party Poker Players. The “skins” will continue to use the old Party Poker software and they will share players amongst themselves. Currently Party is getting about 8 times as much action. My prediction is that the skins won’t last long.
So what does this mean to me? If you are casual recreational pretty much nothing. Just continue to play on Party Poker where the games are good. If you are a semi-pro or professional poker player who was playing on Empire, EuroBet, or another skin to get some special bonus, then you have to figure out how to get back on to the main Party Poker Network and still get the same VIP treatment you are accustomed to. I would recommend using the Party Poker Signup Bonus Code “VIPParty”. The poker site can act as a liaison between the players and Party Poker’s VIP department to ensure that you get the maximum incentives and rewards allowable under Party Poker’s NO Rake Back Policy.
Today’s Poker Lesson: Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. This holds true with life, finance, and also poker. You should always have a backup plan for any worst case scenario type of event.
