As we all deal with the unprecedented situation surrounding the recent COVID-19 outbreak, live poker will obviously need to be put on pause. A lot of us will be stuck at home over the next few weeks, forced to keep away from those we normally interact with, in an effort to contain the spread of the virus.
As such, Playground has made arrangements with partypoker to create, as of March 21, Playground specific Online Cash Games. What does this mean? It means that you’ll be able to play at tables restricted to the same group of players you’re used to sitting with at Playground. As well, on these tables, a player’s real name will appear, so you know exactly who it is you’re up against!
These tables will be accessible in the main Cash Game lobby on partypoker, identified by our logo, and named using our club name followed by the min/max buy-in range. Ex: Playground [$40-$200 buy-in]. Further, all the club’s buy-in ranges, per stake, will be respected as well – so you’re really playing the same game!
As well as being in the “Playground Network”, we can also set up private/invite only games. If you’d rather not open your table to general players within our network, but prefer to limit your pool to 6-8-10 players, we can do so. You simply need to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org identifying the players you’d like included as well as the game type you’ll be playing (In a situation like this we’ll also confirm with each of these players).
On top of all this, Playground has arranged for all our players to receive a 20% increase in Rake Back, above the weekly 20%-40% currently offered by partypoker. This additional 20% will be dropped into your account on Mondays, while the standard partypoker one will continue to be deposited on a weekly basis. The additional 20% will be in place for at least 1 month.
If you want to play in our restricted network, you must opt-in! To do so, please follow this link:
We can also help you fund your account. To inquire about available options, please email us email@example.com
