Experience The Excitement of FastForward Poker
PartyPoker has entered the world of "fast-fold" poker by introducing FastForward Poker. Currently in beta, but soon to be fully released, FastForward poker is the turbo-charged way to play cash games and once you have tried it you may never play a standard cash game every again!
Unlike in a standard cash game, players are seated in a pool of players rather than seated on one specific table. When the player folds they are instantly whisked away from their current table and placed on a new one with different opponents. You do not even have to wait for the action to get to you before you fold! If you look down and find the lowly staring back at you simply click Forward Fold and you will be dealt into a new hand immediately! FastForward Poker eliminates the need to sit and wait for premium hands as they come around much, much faster.
Not only will you be able to play hundreds of hands per hour with this new format but you still earn PartyPoints at the same rate as in a standard cash game so you will be reaping the rewards faster than ever before. Can you climb to the top tier of the VIP scheme by the end of the year?
Try FastFoward poker now and be prepared to be blown away.
