Party poker is a gaming website intended for poker players that would want to play a game on the internet. But as every site has their own story, let us check how the story of this one goes.

Party poker, with the support of its parent company, Party Gaming Plc., began its operations on the year 2001 by creating a network on the web wherein players from the online community can interact with each other from different sites. This was made possible by the company distributing its software to the other web-based gaming rooms.

The gaming site has quite a lot of advantages over different gaming rooms that already existed. These include excellent gaming software that provides player an ultimate experience in gaming, World Poker Tour and World Series of gaming sponsorships, and above all, it serves as well-liked associate program for webmasters. With these advantages, it quickly rose to the peak of its fame.

But not long after that recognition, things turned worse for the website and the reasons are as follows. The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, an act passed to the senate in 2006, is the major enemy of the said gaming site. The act, being an enforcement act, can make the site look like a criminal as it may add one crime more if the site continued operating unlawfully. Because of this act, the site was forced to pull out the virtual plug on US players. The effect of this pulling was massive as it involved millions of dollars lost in an instant. With the site of the view, other gaming sites take the position as first, PokerStars, and second, Full Tilt Poker, which had no problem accepting players from the United States.

Soon after that, Party poker made its comeback due to the merging of two giant companies, PartyGaming and bwin, resulting to a combined proceeds of 885.6 million dollars. As of the moment, bwin.Party, a new name given to the said site, takes its place as one of the top 5 online gaming site. But complaints about the disastrous updates of the software continued to come in.

In November 2011, finally, the said site re-entered the US market because of the final decision of DOJ that the states got cleared to legalize online poker.
