The amazing history of PartyPoker starts with parent company PartyGaming
(formerly known as IGlobalMedia) founded in 1997 by Ruth
Parasol Ms Parasol, a
lawyer by trade, was involved in the Internet Pornography
industry prior to getting into the online gambling business. Parasol
hired programmer, Anurag Dikshit,
a graduate of Indian Institute of Technology who was then
living and working in the USA, to create online casino games.
was launched in 2001. Mr Dikshit hired Vikrant
Bhargava a colleague
college days to head the marketing operations or PartyPoker.
Shares of the company were split between Parasol, her husband
Russ, Dikshit and Bhargava. all of whom are now billionaires
from the recent float of PartyGaming on the London Stock
Exchange, with an IPO valued at over $8 billion.
There were already several online poker sites by the time PartyPoker
arrived but PartyPoker quickly cornered the market
with smart marketing and a fast,
simple to use,
fairly good looking
interface. PartyPoker's flexible and reliable affiliate program
was a hit with webmasters who lost no time in promoting PartyPoker for
a generous share of the profits.
With up to 80,000 simultaneous players logged in and playing at peak
offers a compelling Online Poker experience with ample
game selection at stakes to fit any budget. and skill level.
In addition to the vast number of active tables, PartyPoker
also offers an incentive in the form of a huge bad beat
jackpot that can reach $100,000 in a couple of day, and has
been known to balloon up to $500,000+ if it goes for a week or more
before anyone hits it. Not a bad consolation prize for losing
while holding 4 of a kind or higher. (Yes, it can happen. I have seen
straight flushes lose to higher straight flushes). Complete details on
this and other
promotions can be found at PartyPoker
