Software & User Experience
In regards to user experience and software, Party Poker NJ has raised the bar for the other competing sites by having top-notch, smooth and visually pleasing software.
They have introduced a ‘social network’ element to the game. Similar to Facebook features, you can ‘friend’ other players and see how they have been doing on your ‘activity feed’. You can also private message other players and post messages.
Another cool element to their software is their ‘missions & achievements’ section. They have missions that upon completion, earn you achievements and rewards. These rewards vary from tournament buyins, points, freerolls, etc.
There are still some complications with IP detection, and some players that are playing in New Jersey are unable to log on to Party Poker due to sometimes being right on the Pennsylvania state border, or not having a couple of other New Jersey wifi IP address in your area. Both are measures intended to not let people play from other states, and they are working towards the solution. To their credit, they have solved this issue for the majority of their users.
