Whether you are a new comer or an experienced poker player, 888 Poker has a lot of action waiting for you at the tables.

Video poker is a real laugh. Soft players but beware of LAG who bully you relentlessly if you're playing TAG. Not enough players to table hop so regularly see big stacks (4+ buyins not uncommon).

No problem getting a withdrawal after giving supporting evidence but it took about 10 days.

Support responded within 48 hours 2 times.

Software is not so good, crashing once or twice a week. Can't auto wait for blinds when entering a table, random lag spikes/dc's, 3 seconds to select 'wait for blinds' on entering the table.

Ok tournaments & sitngo numbers. (Holdem - don't know about other flavours of games). Reasonable free-roll action but takes forever to clear out the field due to 1st hour rebuys. Not worth it for the tiny payout unless you really stuck for cash.

  • NUTS: 888poker has some of the easiest games online today. Players of all skill levels should not have much trouble winning against all of their fishy players. The site covers players of all bankroll sizes with games up to $500/$1,000 blinds. Their 100% up to $500 initial deposit bonus is a nice way to get going. They offer all of the popular deposit options as well as some more obscure, regional methods. The minimum deposit is just $10 allowing even micro-stakes grinders to play at 888Poker.
    * Currency rates change daily, this is an estimate.
  • BEATS: They do not have as much traffic as other sites like iPoker or Party Poker. They do offer Omaha and Stud but the games are sparsely populated above the small-stakes levels. They stopped accepting American poker players in 2006 due to the UIGEA and have not allowed them to play since. The Lobby is a bit jumbled and can be somewhat difficult to navigate.

888 poker Room Review


888 poker Overview



Launched in 2002, 888 poker was once a fairly high flyer on the US online poker scene. Like many other poker rooms, 888 poker (formerly known as 888 Pacific Poker) responded to the threats of the UIGEA in late 2006 by banning US players. This cut off nearly half of its revenue. The suspension of US customers was anticipated by management, which wisely started building up the non-US player base prior to implementation, helping it to weather the storm.

Worldwide, 888 Poker usually ranks in the top 10 rooms for player traffic, occasionally cracking the top 5 at peak times. As part of 888 Holdings PLC, owners of Casino-on-net.com and Reef Club Casino, 888 Poker also benefits from a certain amount of cross-traffic from the casino side of the business and its roughly 170,000 registered player accounts. Top poker players feel this boosts 888's fish factor considerably. To date, 888 has been reporting fairly stable net gaming revenues from its poker operation, which probably means players can count on 888poker being around for a while.

888 poker offers Pot-limit games of Omaha Hi and Omaha Hi/Lo, as well as No-limit and Pot-limit Texas Hold'em in ring games, Sit and Go, and Multi-Table Tournaments. The room also offers Seven Card Stud and Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo.

Players of all skill levels will be able to find a game suitable to their bankrolls. Cash games start as low as $.01/$.02 blinds and go up to $500/$1000 for No-Limit and $250/$500 for Limit games. SNGs start as low as $.50 and go all the way up to $1000+$30.

888 is also home to some of the best seasonal and monthly promotions on the net. The room is always hosting a new depositor freeroll, so you have a shot to pile some more cash upon our exclusive $500 welcome bonus. Right now with their "Life's Good" promo, all new players will be automatically entered into their $5,000 Guaranteed LG 2012 Tournament. Each week throughout the promotion, 888 will also be giving away $50,000 worth of LG 3D TVs and other entertainment products!

After having had an account there for over a year with money accumulated, I try to make an extra deposit to get a reload bonus. Immediately my account is closed with the following vague explanation:

"As this account is related to other accounts that have been closed by our Department
for security reasons, we have suspended your membership."

No mention of the funds in my account.
If you wish to run into these sort of things, go for 888 Poker.
If not, try something more safe like Scandinavian based Ongame. 888 Poker is based in Gibraltar after all.
