View Full Version : What are Party's Happy Hours? (slight relevance to "Party Pack")

12-02-2005, 06:59 PM
So yesterday I finished off clearing my PPA bonus, and I figured I had just missed hitting 100 pts for the day. I check this morning. The counter shows that I only hit 88 pts but got 28 happy points to double it. I see that this bonus (Santa Pack) might not be AS bad if you hit up the Happy hours and multi-tab to knock off double points really fast. Can anyone post a link to the happy hour schedule for my sake and the sake of other posters?

Sorry, I just found it.

From their site.

3) Happy Hours: Play in the happy hours and double the rate at which you earn your regular Party Points. Happy Hours are from 4 AM ET to 2 PM ET. So if you have earned 4 regular Party Points by playing on a live game or a tournament during Happy Hours, you will receive 4 bonus Party Points.

Note: For tournaments the starting time will determine whether it is considered under Happy Hours or not. So if you play in a tournament which starts at 1:30 PM and finishes at 6 PM, you will still receive Happy Hour Party Points.

So, if you were to play 60 raked hands at 3/6 jackpot (3*15*2=90) and 20 raked hands of regular 2/4 (6*2=12)..this is sort of 8X (102pts. I am not sure how being gold or silver would affect these numbers.

Only "Regular" points count for the Santa's Party Pack bonus.

Happy Hour... 4am - 2pm ET

I am only going from my experience with the December 1 points tally

"You have earned the minimum requirement of 100 regular points on 1 days. You need to earn 100 regular points on 9 more days to win $30".

Total Regular points earned: 88
Total bonus points earned: 28
Total points earned: 116

Thx... if happy hour points count, then this bonus becomes even better /images/graemlins/smile.gif

Can anyone else confirm?

Only regular points count. In other words, you gotta play for several hours a day. (Unless you can 10 table)

I can read the T&C, but several people have reported happy hour points counting.

4-tabling... At 2/4 this should be less than 3hrs/day... at 3/6 a little more than an hour/day!

My first day I had 88 regular points and 28 happy hour points counted for a total 116 points. They gave me credit. Yesterday I had 76 regular points and 20 happy hour points, but, apparently, they still gave me credit. I am not sure if this is because the sum of the 2 days (212) is more than 200 or there is some sort of glitch on their end. It seems that happpy hour points do count.

Maybe their programmer screwed up and left off a 0, and its crediting anyone with 10 PP/day /images/graemlins/smile.gif

If you are a silver or gold member you earn regular points even faster. So if you are gold then you would technically only need to get 50 points since they multiply your points by 2.

it is strange.

thursday i just played a few hands (24 regular/24 happy hours)
friday i heard about santa's party pack and started to play for the promo. i played my 100 points (132 regular/68happy hours) and santa says: you need more 9 more days for the $30
saturday i've been off due to family buisness.
today i logged on and santa says: you need to play 8 more days for the $30...

i don't get it, but i don't complain.

The counter updates around 9-10am the next day, when the party point system refreshes. Today would be showing 3 days, so you got credit for 2 out of the 3 for some reason... did you have any other points on those days? (maybe the 200 bonus points for weekly play on saturday counted?)

no weekly play, i whored some bonuses at other sites last week. but as i said, i don't understand how, but i don't complain.

So far my days at 68 points and 102 points, and partypoker has given me credit for 2 days.
