Party Poker’s new improved software, which was launched on part of the group’s sites last year, is now available for French players through three brands – PMU, Party Poker and ACFPoker.
Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment was formed from the merger of PartyGaming and Bwin Interactive Entertainment, which was completed in the beginning of 2011, and it’s headquarter is in Gibraltar.
It is 48.4% owned by PartyGaming shareholders and 51.6% by Bwin shareholders, and it has co-managed by CEO’s Norbert Teufelberger and Jim Ryan. The company established itself as leader in the digital entertainment world and it is also the world’s largest publicly traded online gambling company with its listing on the London Stock Exchange.
Bwin.Party has millions of customers and its reported revenue for last year is EUR 652.4 million and Clean EBITDA of EUR 108.0 million, with over 2,700 employees in various offices around the world.
Bwin.Party is most famous with its online poker room Party Poker, as well as its sportsbook bwin.
Party Poker introduces new platform in France
•With improved software
•Better tournament schedules and payment structures
•More functional and user friendly website
The company has licenses in multiple territories including Alderney, Belgium, Denmark, Gibraltar, Italy, Spain, Schleswig-Holstein in Germany, and it also complies with French national betting regulation.
Initially PartyGaming PLC was established in 1997, launching the Starluck Casino. Up until 2006 when some changes were introduced in American gambling laws, Party Poker was the world’s largest online poker brand.
The new improvements
Currently, nine months after the launch on some of its international sites, French players finally have access to Bwin.Party highly advertised fast-fold facilities, which come with the Fast Forward branding.
Other improvements, which are now available for the French players include much better and more functional website, as well as added software features, which are designed to improve significantly the user experience and also make all recreational players much more comfortable with the games.
Other renovation is the significant change in tournament schedules, which include much better, and profitable payment structures and the possibility to take part in much wider range of satellite competitions.
For now bwin’s site will not switch to the new platform, so it will continue to operate under the Ongame France network, complying with French national betting regulation. The potential reasons are contractual, but there are plans to introduce the new Party Poker software soon.
Party Poker is expecting that the new enhanced platform will improve even more in the future and will attract more and more players, hoping to confirm its leading position on the French market, along with PokerStars and Winamax.
