Daily challenges and dedicated twice-daily fast forward hours are among the ways that the partypoker faithful can win instant cash, ticket and bonus rewards.

Fast Forward

Updated every three days, the challenges include being dealt specific hole cards when playing on the popular fast forward tables. If that phrase is new to you, here’s a quick rundown of partypoker’s fast forward offering.

To alleviate the occasional boredom of cash games, or just to spice things up a little, fast forward lets you fold, and instantly be ‘hyperspaced’ to a new table and a new hand, with new opponents, the ‘forward fold’ option meaning you don’t even have to wait your turn to head to a new game.

Team partypoker’s Sam Trickett said of the announcement: “partypoker continues to raise the bar for its cash game players".

The well-known English pro added: “With the launch of the new $500,000 giveaway throughout September on top of partypoker’s generous cashback program and Table Starter Cashback campaign, there’s never been a better time to play on the site!”

The red diamond site has also increased their fast forward weekly leaderboards, which we’ll get to shortly, but there are other ways to cash in on the newly-announced $500,000 windfall.


Players can also fulfil MTT requirements as a challenge, for example participating in three tournaments at a certain buy-in level.

The hugely-popular SPINS games - hyper-paced, three-player SNG’s that can lead to instant $millionaire status - also offer a chance to grab your share of the new prizepool.

Winning three separate $5 buy-in SPINS tournaments, for example, will be one of the challenges and there will be plenty more options too.

Fast Forward Leaderboards

Leaderboards are always a massive draw, and partypoker have bumped up the weekly race prizes to $81,000 – and hope to make it to the $100,000 figure by the end of September.

The leaderboard races operate a weekly opt-in policy, and there are 18 races in total, nine each for NLHE and PLO. Here is a breakdown of the different buy-in levels:

  • fast forward $2 (Micro)
  • fast forward $5 (Micro)
  • fast forward $10 (Micro)
  • fast forward $25 (Low)
  • fast forward $50 (Low)
  • fast forward $100 (Medium)
  • fast forward $200 (Medium)
  • fast forward $500 (High)
  • fast forward $1000 (High)

Leaderboards run from Monday (00:00 CEST) – Sunday (23:59 CEST) every week, with top prizes of up to $3,000 and you can find all the fast forward details here.

Cashback and Table Starter Cashback

Apart from the newly-injected cash, partypoker already offer an excellent rakeback system, the straightforward and simple Cashback reward programme offering up to 40% cashback.

Fast forward players can earn cashback quicker than those playing regular cash games, while last month’s innovation - Table Starter Cashback, aimed to reward players who actively start cash games on the site.

For those who start a table at six-max or higher, with two or three players, are rewarded with double Cashback points and there is no limit on the number of additional points players can earn.

The fast forward games have been added to this campaign, yet another reason to give it a go.
