Titan Poker vs Party Poker
These two sites are number three and four respectively in terms of online poker traffic.
Both sites do not allow players from the USA at this time but still have a significant player pool for all stakes.
Let's take a look at these two popular poker sites and see which one is best.
ROUND BY ROUND
ROUND 1 Bonuses & Promotions
Titan Poker offers new players with a 150% sign up bonus up to $500 for new players coming to their site. In addition to that they offer a $20,000 new depositors freeroll to help boost your bankroll. PartyPoker offers its new players a 100% up to $500 deposit bonus, which while still a good bonus doesn't quite match Titan Poker's offering.
ROUND 1 WINNER:
ROUND 2 Software
PartyPoker has done a great job in the last nine months to really renovate their software and lobby to get it working extremely efficiently. There's also a really slick web-play option that lets you log in and play poker from any web browser on any platform (Mac or PC). Titan Poker's software is a little bit better designed artistically but mimics PartyPoker (which came before it) extremely close. Both lobbies and table software are very close in form and function, it's just a matter if you like the blue theme of Titan more than the green theme of Party Poker.
ROUND 2 WINNER:
ROUND 3 Traffic
Titan Poker is on the iPoker Network, which currently ranks as the third largest poker network in the world and largest among sites that do not accept US players. PartyPoker is on its own network and ranks fourth overall in traffic and second among sites that do not accept US players. According to PokerScout, these sites are very close in traffic but Titan Poker does have more consistent traffic.
ROUND 3 WINNER:
ROUND 4 Tournaments
Both sites have a bevy of tournaments available for its players. Party Poker features the "Monthly Million" on the first Sunday of every month that boasts a guarantee of $1 million. Similarly, Titan Poker also has a monthly million guarantee and both sites have tons of satellites to their big buy-in tournaments. On top of that both sites have tournaments featuring destination prizes in addition to jackpot events.
ROUND 4 WINNER:
ROUND 5 Ring Games
Titan Poker's network is noticeably full of two types of players – bad shortstackers and horrible regulars that aren't used to aggression. PartyPoker's regulars are definitely just as fishy and for players on either sites, the tables are full of fish at the micro-stakes. Titan Poker will get the nod here for ring games however because there are simply more players playing at the cash tables than at PartyPoker. Keep in mind though that both sites have some pretty fishy players.
ROUND 5 WINNER:
ROUND 6 Games
PartyPoker has a decent amount of poker games to play with all varieties of Texas Hold'em and Omaha games in addition to 7 Card Stud. Titan Poker offers up all the varieties of Hold'em and Omaha games regularly with solid traffic. There are also regular 7 Card Stud and 5 Card Stud games going continuously.
ROUND 6 WINNER:
ROUND 7 Deposit/Withdrawal Options
There are exactly 24 different ways of making a deposit on Titan Poker including major credit cards, NETeller, Click2Pay, bank transfers and Moneybookers. Party Poker offers the same credit card options with NETeller, Firepay and wire transfers available. Most people on either site just use NETeller and withdrawals are handled the same way. Because there's simply more options on Titan Poker, they get the nod in this section.
ROUND 7 WINNER:
ROUND 8 VIP Program
PartyPoker has a system called Party Points which awards points based on the amount of rake paid at tournaments or on the cash tables. These points include a multiplier based on the level you reach per month, and the points can be used for cash bonuses. Titan Poker has Club Titan which works similarly on a point system that also has a multiplier. The points can be turned in for cash as well.
ROUND 8 WINNER:
ROUND 9 Support
Titan Poker offers 24/7 support via email or by phone. Their support phone lines are clearly found on just about every page of their website and overall they may not be lightning quick but for the most part are courteous and helpful. Their customer service department has, for the most part, been received warmly by their customer base. PartyPoker players have never been high on the customer support available via email or phone.
ROUND 9 WINNER:
Party Poker VS Titan Poker WHO WINS?
Due to the better traffic, customer service and payment options, Titan Poker is the winner in this comparison breakdown. Titan has a great player pool that's full of fish and the rewards program there is one of the better ones for players that simply want to turn their points into cash. Party Poker looks like a great place to play as well but when it comes down to comparing the two, Titan looks like a surefire winner.
