PartyPoker will soon prohibit HUD. Best alternative rooms

PartyPoker will soon prohibit HUD. Best alternative rooms

Over the past years, PartyPoker has been trying to become the leading online poker room. PartyPoker conducted lots of promotions to attract new players, but the room did not forget about the regulars. The loyalty program works for more than two years and allows you to receive a direct 20-40% rakeback from the room.

In February 2019, PartyPoker added a new VIP status called Diamond Club Elite, which allows you to receive a 60% rakeback. Thanks to this, many regulars began to seriously think about making PartyPoker the main room for grind.

But in the beginning of March, the first rumors about the upcoming ban on HUDs at PartyPoker appeared in the community. Very soon, these rumors received official confirmation.

Nowadays it is almost impossible to find a regular who does not use a HUD, so the upcoming ban on such programs will hit mostly professional players. Who knows, perhaps this is not the last unfriendly step on the part of the room in relation to the regulars.

In case you can’t imagine your daily grind without a HUD, we are glad to announce that there are still lots of rooms that don’t limit its use, and also offer excellent rakeback deals and softer fields. Today we want to tell you about the most promising of these rooms.
