Features and Gameplay

For most players, especially the newbies like me the complaint about gaming apps is the messy icons, and boxes. However, the neat and clean design of this app lets the users start using it without much trouble. The app is also designed to navigate freely, which all the beginners would certainly appreciate.

What astonished me about this site is the heaping number of games. There are so many gaming options to choose from without getting your real money involved. As a new player, I got £20 as a free bonus for beginners which included $1 as a bonus and $31 for the tournament tickets.

The various poker gaming options for 888poker app players include cash games, Texas Hold’em, Casino games, SNAP and Sit and Go tournaments.

I found the design of this app clutter free, and it can be played in landscape mode on the mobile devices. The software of the app is also stable, meaning which; the app hardly hangs while playing. The registration process is simple, and there is a welcome bonus. As soon as I signed up, I received an email in a few minutes for the activation. I got the bonus of $88 deposited in my account, and the other bonuses too were credited from the 7th day of claiming. There are low stakes games for 1 cent or 2 cents too. Multiple table tournaments are available, and you can choose a tournament that fits your interest. Even with a bet of 1 cent, you are also eligible for huge European tournaments.

There was so much of excitement while I played Snap Poker where I immediately got a new hand just after folding. There were so many players on the other side that made the game a real thrilling experience as constantly a player revolves around a series of tables to get a seat right away without waiting.

I played Sit and Go games with ease, as they can be played on the go. The game can be enjoyed provided the internet connection is good. Nevertheless, if there is afailure of internet connection, the game can be resumed with ease. There is a large pool of enemies, and it is possible to chat with them during the game. However, the heads-up display is missing.

The registration process is easy.

One thing I must admit is that the table graphics and the software’s look and feel are just exceptional.

Initially, the app had only a few basic features, and the cash games were the only options, gradually, the app kept on adding the features and games that can be played with ease.

The snap poker was introduced in 2014, and this is one of the greatest advantages of using the gaming app. With this game, you need not wait for a hand to be folded when you choose a new table. Everything happens instantly. Switching between real and play money is so easy and can be done in the same app which is the plus point.


There are a few pitfalls too. The game selection is not huge. There are only limited options, and there are no webcam tables which is a great trouble for those who have played in HUD (heads-up display).

The multi-tabling feature is not available. For those who had playedon multiple tables simultaneously using online poker games, this can be a real drawback. You cannot find a particular player to call to your table, as there is no search option to find a player. The lack of third party software is a big disadvantage, as this is commonly used to play on multiple tables at the same time.

Bottom Line

The 888 poker app has quite a lot of features that are meant to make the gaming experience easy, and stress-free.On the whole, it is a fun packed and easy to usemobile gaming app to relinquish the gaming thirst of poker players. This unique mobile app is expected to fill in the loopholes with the future releases.
