partypoker has made major changes to its lobbies and tables after listening to feedback from a large group of its players and those changes seem to have been received in an overwhelmingly positive manner.
After downloading the latest software update, partypoker players are greeted with a new darker colour scheme that gives partypoker a more modern feel. In addition to a new look, the partypoker blog explains there have been several notable changes implemented during this Phase 1 update, including:
- Improved game navigation
- Collapsible filter to allow more space to view game choice
- New darker lobby and table theme
- Updated Sit & Go Hero lobby to differentiate between three and four-handed games
- Removal of the one-click lobby as almost all players prefer the traditional view
Tom Waters, Managing Director for partypoker, said the project to improve the partypoker experience had been running for a number of months with the support of a large group of partypoker’s players. Waters also explained further changes to the site’s software will be made in the coming months.
“There are many more enhancements in the pipeline and I am confident that by the end of 2017 our players will be delighted with the improved look and feel and the usability of the software. We know what the bigger issues are and believe that these upgrades will address all of those.”
Phase 2 of the changes are set to be released in the next quarter of 2017 and will include improvements such as:
- Ability to view the lobby in full screen
- Further filter, display, game and tournament information improvements
- Enhanced tournament lobby displays
- Better table look and feel and more customisation options
partypoker ambassador Patrick Leonard, has been instrumental in gathering feedback for the software improvements and was part of the team who were beta testing the software before it was rolled out to partypoker’s player base.
“The upcoming software release is another step in the direction of getting our ‘dream poker room’. We see an improvement to the lobby and to the table as well as lots of small tweaks all around the client. I tested the software with a dozen or so guys and the feedback was all extremely positive. We’ve given extra feedback about how to further improve the software and from now till the end of the year you should see additional impressive improvements to the overall software.”
