888 Poker Room Review
One of the hardest hit poker rooms by the UIGEA was 888 Poker. Once well established in the U.S. market as Pacific Poker, this room has had to re-build the 888 Poker brand over seas, and has battled back to see as many as 2000 cash game players and 8000 tournament players online during peak hours.
The good news for 888 Poker is their newly signed deal with Caesars Interactive Entertainment that will allow them open up shop in Atlantic City as one of the first poker rooms to offer online poker legally in the state of New Jersey.
The addition of New Jersey players to the poker room will eventually affect player competition levels, which currently offer up a good percentage of weak players migrating in from the Casino, Bingo and Sportsbook rooms. 888’s software is cutting edge with a realistic 3D graphics and now offers webcam tables.
Bonuses in the 888 Poker room include $88 free dollars just for signing up, no deposit needed. Once a player deposits for the first time they will enjoy an instant 100% bonus on their first deposit up to $400. New sign ups will also gain entry into $100k depositor’s freeroll tournament.
Tournaments at 888 Poker are a low-stakes player’s dream with few larger-stakes events scheduled. That keeps away the best tournament grinders and makes the games a little easier to beat. The biggest tournament is the weekly $100k guaranteed, but a wide selection of satellite tournaments are put on for big live events.
Currently players have the option of playing Texas Hold em, Omaha, Omaha High/Low, Razz, Caribbean Poker, Draw Poker, Badugi and 7 Card-Stud. Other playing options include Face2Face Poker, Teams and PokerCam.
Most of the site’s poker action is available on their mobile apps that are compatible with iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
Players can create their own tables with friends via the room’s webcam service. You can have private games with friends all over the world all in the comfort of our own home.
