Originally known as Pacific Poker, 888poker is part of the group’s network 888 that controls the largest online casino in the world.
As you can imagine, this means many good players casino poker tables. Combined with great promotions that also means many Texas Hold’em players playing for 888poker with lots of action tables and good bonuses.
Cash games No-Limit and Pot-Limit are strongly recommended for players looking to make money. Viewed flop percentages are 50 and 60 – sometimes even higher than 70 – which is quite absurd. No-Limit games are the most soft and easy online.
The updated 888poker “Poker 6” now offers over 100 new features and includes good graphics, improved search functions, a gadget of 3D integrated bingo and casino and cash always visible.
Other good multi-table functions are improved (you can play on up to 16 tables and arrange the windows as you like yourself) password protection and hand histories, which now supports writing to the hard drive and import the analysis tools together.
888poker has also introduced the no-download option for Mac and Linux users. The new software is very slick and offers nearly the same functionality as the download version, although some features of 3D and other aesthetic features have been removed to maintain the speed of the game.
All variations of Texas Holdem, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven Card Stud and Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo are available. Statistics for real money players from September 2011 show the volume of cash games at peak hours and the volume of the tournaments at peak times also.
