Tom Waters, Group Head of Partypoker, called the largest ever Powerfest an ‘exciting challenge.’
Partypoker Mobile App Offers Multi-Tabling
Fans of the partypoker mobile app will be excited to hear that the pocket-sized version of the game we love had gone under the knife. IOS and Android users can now play up to four tables simultaneously thanks to the most recent change.
Players can choose to participate in a mixture of cash games or tournaments, and the team has created a broad selection of exciting new developments including new swipe features, seat selection improvements, and table alerts.
Waters said that the ability for their clientele to play more than one table was ‘critical’ for them and that he was ‘confident’ his players would ‘love’ the product and enjoy the ‘cool’ new features.
