888 is the second largest poker network in the world, which means that you will find a suitable game or tournament at every day and night time. It is the flagship skin of the largest online casino in the world. That means, you can find lots of casino players, who do’t really know what they are doing at the poker tables. This guarantees some of the loosest and most profitable games on the internet.

The huge first deposit bonus and great promotions combined with a high traffic and the very reliable software, make 888poker one of the best all-around options on the market.

Traffic and Games:

As mentioned above the traffic is very high and stable. With 3,000 cash players at peak hours, you will be able to always find the game you are looking for. The 888 Fast-Forward client is called “SNAP”. It includes both tournaments as well as cash games with decent traffic up to NL200, while “normal” cash game traffic is good from the micro all the way up to the high stakes.

The tournament schedule is fantastic as big prize pools for comparatively small buy-ins 24/7. Fish ‘n’ Chips Tournaments offer big cash prizes with super low buy-ins, and 12 chances to win every day. The highlight is Sunday with the Mega and the Highrollers series, where you can play for massive, guaranteed prize pools. On top of that, there are several freerolls with great value running every day. And the best thing is, that both tournaments and cash games are very soft.

Software and Tracking:

The software is reliable, functional and has more than a 100 features and customization options making 888 a good option for multitabling. The lobby is clearly structured and easy to navigate. Hold’em Manager and Pokertracker are supported and even while playing several tables using a HUD the software remains fast and stable.

888 Poker LobbyThe 888 Lobby is well-structured and very easy to navigate.

The tables are well-designed, run smooth and tile perfectly. An “Open Identical” button makes it very easy to add more tables. In addition to that, there are a lot of useful buttons like e.g. “Auto-Rebuy” and “Sit Here, where you can choose your preferred seat at the table.

However, it might not be the best choice for grinders, who play higher and put on a lot of volume as the promotions and VIP scheme benefit more the recreational players. On the other hand, this site is perfect for someone, who is looking for a lot of promotions, freerolls and easy games.
