In the past, a small admin fee was taken by partypoker as a monthly charge due to the inactivity of online poker players who failed to log into their accounts for six months or more. Partypoker recently announced, however, that it will no longer be charging the inactivity fee.
Introduced in 2007 by previous management, the fee was a monthly charge that was deducted from player’s accounts due to inactivity for a period of six months. Currently, the inactivity fee is refunded to players who have reactivated their accounts by either making a cash bet or wager, making a deposit or by playing a raked hand or entering a tournament.
Now, according to the partypoker blog, the fee will be removed, with the decision being made as part of the online poker brand’s promise to take note of feedback and to respond in a positive manner to improvement suggestions from players.
The removal of this fee is just one of several ways that partypoker is looking to improve the player experience at their site. In 2016, partypoker decided to remove withdrawal fees in order to provide players with access to their online poker winnings without any charge, no matter which payment option is used by the player.
Additional changes to the brand to assist with promoting a quality and fair gaming experience include randomized seating for cash games and local hand histories being anonymous.
