Party Poker Wins eGaming Award - 6th January 2010

Being recognized for a whole year's worth of hard work is something that all poker rooms would like to receive, but in such a competitive market only the best can receive the top prize for each category.

The popular eGaming magazine (EGR) recently recognized the industry’s top online poker rooms and casinos with eighteen different awards. The ceremony took place in London and there were more than nine hundred people in attendance.

The best poker operator award was given to PartyPoker and a special mention was given to PKR. PartyPoker has done an outstanding job this past year in promoting great communication with their players and implementing innovative features into their poker client, as well as fixing bugs reported by their users. They have also acquired a very important poker authority, as buying the World Poker Tour Enterprises has certainly put them back on the radar and their aggressive business model will most likely make them the largest online poker room in the world in the years to come. PartyPoker also settled legal problems with the US Department of Justice which makes the industry think that they could be targeting the US market again in the near future once all the UIGEA issues are solved. PartyPoker used to be the largest online poker room in the world but they stopped taking action from US customers after the Safe Port Act was approved.
