Party's cashier is very quick. Deposits are instant (no surprises there) and withdrawals are almost as fast. Typically it is less than 12 hours for neteller, and is usually about 3 or 4. This is very pleasing, especially since there have been a lot of limited term bonuses recently and I hope they'll be offering more to try and hold on to the European and Canadian players.

Party's software is one of the best in the business. There are several small annoying features about it which you'll find out if you play there - my pet hate is the way the lobby pops up when you close a table. You can't pick your own avatar, but the buttons are easy to find, and everything works pretty well, so I can put up with the green and yellow colour scheme (it's easily modifiable though thankfully).

Party has had a lot of big tournaments, like the Party Poker Millions Cruises, satellites to the World Series of Poker, and large guaranteed prize-pool weekly tournaments. Most party tournaments have a lot of satellites, but there's not a lot of small buyin multi table tournaments that pay out (as opposed to giving entries into larger tournaments). Their Sit and Go options are very good (although paying a whole dollar to enter a $5 tournament is just highway robbery - other places have $5+0.50, which is much better). You can also find single table satellites for their big multi-table tournaments. Party also offer multi-level SNG Steps tournaments The basic idea is that the winners from each round go through to another bigger buyin SNG, until Step 5 where the winners take a big prize - it's the Chris Moneymaker dream on a smaller scale.

Party have a lot of other promotions, which are nice little extras. Their new player's club (earn points to get merchandise or tournament entries) is pretty much the same as everywhere else, but their Bad Beat Jackpot is huge (one lucky table recently hit $739,622 - supposedly the largest Bad Beat Jackpot in poker history). Personally I missed a $600k jackpot when my royal beat a full house rather than Quads - on a double paired board, come on!) so I'm not a fan of jackpot games at the moment.
