888 Poker is owned by Cassava Enterprises (Gibraltar) Ltd, who have been a leading name in online gaming since 1997 and continue to own and operate some of the most popular online poker rooms, online bingo sites and online casinos found anywhere on the internet. Originally named Pacific Poker, 888 Poker has recently received a major overhaul that included the name change, to bring it into line with other sites such as 888 Casino and 888 Ladies.
The all-new 888 Poker software has received more than a new name and a virtual lick of paint. 888 Poker has had over 90 major software redevelopments including the eagerly anticipated launch of the newly improved 3D table layouts. Another recently added feature is the new multi-language function, which enables the poker software to be used in eight languages including; English, Spanish, French, German, Russian, Dutch, Swedish, Danish, Portuguese and Italian, while the new software has retained its no-download option for Mac users.
It’s not just Texas Holdem found at 888 Poker. Like many of the internet’s leading online poker sites, the software also offers you the opportunity to play games of Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, Seven Card Stud and Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo. These various games then come in three betting flavours; No Limit, Pot Limit and Fixed Limit.
As a sister site to the world-leading 888 Casino, Pacific Poker and now 888 Poker have earned reputations for harbouring fish. Many of the online poker players found here have spilled over from the hugely popular 888 Casino and aren’t experienced poker players like the majority of players found at sites such as PokerStars and Full Tilt, where competition is much tighter. The player traffic levels are very good for a standalone online poker site, with all of your favourite games available at most stake levels 24 hours a day. Top stakes games may be a little thin on the ground at quiet times but all-in-all the traffic levels are very good.
When it comes to poker bonuses 888 Poker has them in spades (pardon the pun). Before you even make a single deposit you can receive a £5 sign up bonus. Simply register for a new online poker account with the brand to receive your free poker bonus. Once you decide to fund your account you will be rewarded with a 100% first deposit match bonus of up to $400. There’s also a generous rewards programme to be found at 888 Casino along with an array of other great promotions, bonuses and freerolls that are updated regularly.
