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. PartyPoker was launched in 2001.  Mr Dikshit hired 
Vikrant Bhargava a colleague from his 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, intuitive and 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 times, PartyPoker 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 website
