In the past few days, partypoker has released upgrades to its desktop and mobile clients. The lobby and game play interfaces have both been improved in this first round of updates – making it more of a pleasure than ever to play on partypoker!
The changes were made after gathering feedback from a wide range of players. The thing that stands out the most about both the lobby and table updates is the darker colour scheme, which will be easier on the eyes for players and big improvement for those playing long sessions.
As well, the simplified one-click lobby has been removed and all of the attention now goes to the traditional lobby view. Very few players were reported to have used the simplified lobby - and now, improving the traditional view will be the focus of continuing development. In this update filters have been made collapsible to provide more space, and in the future partypoker plans further enhancements to the tournament lobby. As well, a very practical improvement has been made to the Sit & Go HERO lobby - it is now possible to differentiate between 3- and 4-handed games.
In the official partypoker news release, Managing Director of partypoker Tom Waters said: "We acknowledge that our poker product needed some love. We have been working on this project for a number of months with the support of a large group of players. We have been testing the phase 1 release over the past couple of weeks and the feedback from the players has been extremely encouraging. 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. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to feedback and suggested improvements. I hope that the new partypoker player experience is to everyone's liking."
