Win One Of Three iPad 3's
The iPad 3 is arguably the best tablet computer available today and you could be getting your hands on one just for trying out FastForward Poker on PartyPoker.
FastForward is PartyPoker's offering of the recent new craze of "fast-fold" poker, an innovative and exciting new way to play online poker. Instead of sitting down at a table and staying there until you leave, you are seated on a table but are part of a greater pool of players too. When you click the fold button you are whisked away and placed on a brand new table with different opponents and immediately dealt new cards.
What makes this new game so amazing is you do not even have to wait until the action is on to fold and receive new cards! Don't like the hole cards you have received? Then click the Fast Fold button and get new cards! You can keep fast-folding until you are dealt a hand that you are willing to play!
In order to celebrate the full launch of this action-packed game, PartyPoker is holding a raffle where three iPad 3's will be given away! To be in with a chance of winning one of these amazing gadgets simply earn five PartyPoints at the FastForward tables between Oct. 8-23 and your alias will be entered into the draw. Two PartyPoints are awarded for every $1 raked so you should be able to generate five PartyPoints in next to no time at all.
