Originally called Pacific Poker, 888poker is the flagship poker site of 888.com, a large online gambling site. Although the 888 Poker Network includes several skins, they all belong to the same company.

Thanks to good marketing, the 888 Poker Network is one of the largest online poker networks, with traffic comparable to the bwin.party digital entertaiment poker network.

888 poker software quality is good, with clean graphics and decent navigation. Cash games and tournaments with special features (like turbos, deep stacks, video, etc) are given simple icons to make them easily identifiable, and there is a legend at the bottom of the page in case you forget what each icon means. The 888 Poker Network filter system for tournaments and cash tables is extremely basic. You can only filter by generic stake levels (Lo, Med, and Hi), and cannot filter by speed, deep stack, video, etc.

The @888poker network is one of the few networks that offers online poker using webcams. Click to Tweet

If you are interested in playing poker online using a webcam, the only option on the 888 Poker Network is 6-handed No Limit Hold’em.

888 Poker Cash Game Rake

 
Active Tables (Full Table):
  NL Hold'em   1¢/2¢ - $1/$2 & $3/$6
  NLH (Casual)   1¢/2¢ - 2¢/5¢
  FL Hold'em   2¢/4¢
  PL Omaha   1¢/2¢ - 12¢/25¢
  PL Omaha Hi/Lo   1¢/2¢ - 25¢/50¢
  FL Omaha Hi/Lo   2¢/4¢
 
Active Tables (6-Handed):
  NL Hold'em   1¢/2¢ - $25/$50
  NLH (Speed)   1¢/2¢ - $1/$2
  NLH (Casual)   1¢/2¢
  NLH (Cam)   1¢/2¢ - 2¢/5¢

  PLO (Speed)   5¢/10¢

888poker has significant cash game traffic. While most of 888 Poker's cash game activity is on short-handed tables, they do have plenty of options for full ring game poker as well. However, like many online poker sites, 888 Poker no longer offer heads-up cash games.

Regardless of whether you you prefer full ring or short-handed cash games, there are plenty of options to choose from with 888 Poker, including NL Hold'em (with or without webcams), limit holdem, PL Omaha, PL Omaha Hi/Lo, and FL Omaha Hi/Lo. Not only are these tables typically active, but 888poker offers some of the widest range of available stakes of any online poker site for these games!

Since many 888 Poker players are casino converts, much of the cash game action occurs on “Push or Fold” and Jackpot tables. Even if this is not your preferred style of game the action is fast and loose creating a profitable opportunity for skilled players. The level of competition is relatively low at all stakes compared to other sites, with good sized pots and more players seeing the flop than average.

@888Poker offer casual tables (you can only play 1 table), which helps protect them from multi-table grinders. Click to Tweet

Unfortunately, 888poker’s rake structure is not very competitive. In fact, they have one of the highest rake structures online (and their weak rewards programs do not even come close to compensating for this). If 888 Poker's high rake (and poor rewards) concerns you, which it should, then we strongly recommend downloading Americas Cardroom instead!

888 Poker Tournaments

The majority of online poker tournaments offered on the 888poker network include a guaranteed prize pool. Although 888 Poker tournaments get a high number of players (usually several hundred), the number is not so high as to create ridiculously top heavy payouts. As a result, the variation in your results is reasonable, which allows you to maintain a smaller bankroll for tournament poker.

888 Poker tournament entry fees are pretty standard for most buy-ins. For tournaments with buy-ins above $50, 888poker charges higher than average fees.

One of the more unique ideas implemented at 888Poker is the Team Tournament. When you register for a team tournament, you join a specific team and a portion of the prize pool is set aside for the team competition (usually 30%). Teams are then scored based upon the average finish of their team members, and the team prize pool is divided amongst the members of the winning team(s).

Freeroll tournaments on the @888poker network offer decent value, so you can build a bankroll without grinding forever. Click to Tweet

The 888poker network offers some of the best freeroll poker tournaments. In addition to the freerolls for achieving status levels, 888 Poker almost always offer a freeroll related to an active event.

888Poker Sit & Go's

 
Sit & Go (SNG) Formats:
  Multi-Table (MT)
  Single Table (ST)
  Webcam (Cam)
  Double or Nothing (D/N)
 
Active SNGs (Full Table):
  NL Hold'em (MT)   50¢ - $5
  NL Hold'em (ST)   1¢ - $20
  NL Hold'em (D/N)   40¢ - $20
  PL Omaha Hi/Lo (D/N)   $1 - $5
 
Active SNGs (6-Handed):
  NL Hold'em (MT)  
  NL Hold'em (ST)   40¢ - $200
  NL Hold'em (Cam)   40¢ - $5
 
Active SNGs (Heads-Up):
  NL Hold'em (ST)   40¢ - $1,000
  PL Omaha (ST)   $1 - $20

888poker offers a variety of Sit-and-Go tournaments, ranging from heads-up matches to 60-player tournaments. The vast majority of 888 Poker Sit & Go’s are No Limit Hold’em, although Double or Nothing Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo has decent activity as well.

The @888poker Network is one of the only online poker networks where you can play SNGs using a webcam. Click to Tweet

SNG poker tournament fees are pretty standard for most buy-ins. However, the 888Poker network offers some of the lowest fees online for 6-handed sit-and-go's above $15. 888 Poker's fees for heads-up SNGs above $50 are also very competitve.
