What is 1 Click Lobby?
The 1 Click Lobby leads the player directly to the desired tables, the first steps in making it a lot more convenient and carefree.
It provides a much easier interface making many of the tricky decisions for you and taking you to the right table more quickly than in the Classic View. You have a variety of games shown and you just need to click once on ‘Play now’ to start the cash game or ‘Register’ to play a tournament. The lobby displays a selected number of games which includes Cash games, fastforward, Sit & Go’s and tournaments to the first time user, which makes it easier for the player to choose.
There is an option to see more games by clicking on Cash games/fastforward/Sit&Go’s/Tournaments tab. You can scroll on these lobbies to view more games and tournaments
What is minimum and maximum buy-in?
In limit games, the minimum buy-in is equal to 10 times the big blind. There is no maximum buy-in.
Example: In a $5/10 limit game, the big blind value is $5, so the minimum buy-in is equivalent to 10x5, or $50.
Pot and no-limit poker
Pot-limit (PL) and no-limit (NL) games as played at Partypoker both have a minimum and a maximum buy-in.
The maximum amount a player may bring to the table in an NL/PL game corresponds to the name of the game. For example, in a $100 NL game, the maximum buy-in would be $100.
The minimum amount a player can bring to the table is 20% of the maximum. For example, in a $100 NL game, the minimum buy-in would be $20.
What are the different types of bonuses?
Players can activate such bonuses by making a deposit. Some deposit bonuses may have a minimum deposit requirement as well. The bonus amount offered may be fixed or may be a percentage of your deposit amount
The bonus amount offered is a fixed amount. Eg, EUR 20 extra on a deposit of EUR 20.
The bonus amount offered is a percentage of your deposit amount (subject to a maximum), e.g. 100% of deposit amount extra up to a maximum of EUR 100. For percentage bonuses, the requirements also increase in proportion to the deposit amount.
In special cases, we may want to reward our players with a bonus that does not involve a deposit.
