888 Poker Online

Although 888 Poker offers several excellent freerolls, most players will find their total rewards to be lacking compared to other online poker bonus offers.

Although they have seriously strengthened their VIP rewards program (called the "888poker Club") in recent years, 888 Poker's overall rewards are still some of the lowest of all online poker sites. However, 888 Poker do offer competitve rake for 6-handed cash games, as well as competitive sit-and-go fees for 6-max and heads-up SNGs less than $1 and above $30. When you combine the low rake with the high value freerolls, 888 Poker is one of the best options for Casual and Enthusiast players who primarily play these games.

@888Poker offer several excellent freerolls that makes them one of the best online poker sites for certain players. Click to Tweet

With the 888poker Club, you will earn 100 points for every $1 paid in rake and fees. Points are then used to ascend the level structure. Unlike most rewards programs with status levels, with the 888poker Club, your status level is permanent. For example, with just 100 points (from $1 paid in rake/fees), you will climb to level 5, and from then on, you can never go below level 5. As you gain levels, you also earn gold tokens. The amount of tokens earned varies by level. For example, you earn 10 gold tokens when you achieve level 1, but you earn 30 gold tokens when you climb from level 8 to 9. You can exchange 100 gold tokens for a $1 cash bonus or $1 tournament ticket. However, this only works out to 10% equivalent rakeback at the highest levels of the 888poker Club.

You also receive a Club Scratchcard for every 5 levels you gain. 888 Club Scratchcards reward random prizes, such as tournament tickets, cash bonuses, casino free plays, 888poker Club points, etc.

888 Poker has excellent traffic, comparable to the Party Poker network. You will often hear that 888 Poker has some of the softest players online. However, that's very hard to quantify, and you need to consider the sources of these claims. Plenty of poker affiliates make this claim, but of course do not present any data to support it. The fact that 888 Poker offers one of the highest commissions for affiliates makes these claims that much more dubious. High commissions are precisely why so many affiliates rank 888 Poker as their #1 site (again, with no data to support their ranking). However, you should be choosing a poker site based on what is best for YOU, and while 888 Poker is one of the best online poker sites for a limited number of players, the vast majority will earn much higher rewards elsewhere.

888 Poker Instant Play

With 888poker Instant Play, you can play poker right in your web browser! Simply visit the 888 Poker website and click the "Instant Play" link below the yellow "Download Now" button.

888 Poker's Instant Play option allows you to login to your 888 Poker account from any computer without needing to download the 888 Poker software. With Instant Play, you can play real money poker and securely access your cashier.

888 Poker in the USA

US-based poker players who reside in New Jersey can play poker with 888 Poker on the All American Poker Network, which is based in Atlantic City, New Jersey. However, this is a different network that only includes other players who also reside in New Jersey. As a result, the traffic levels are MUCH lower than on the regular 888 Poker site.

If you live in the US, but do not reside in New Jersey, then you cannot legally play poker with 888 Poker. Instead, check out our list of the top us-friendly poker sites.

888 Poker Deposit Bonus

888 Poker has a pretty poor poker deposit bonus compared with other online poker sites. The typical bonus offer includes a 100% poker deposit bonus to a maximum of $400. Your bonus is earned in $10 increments, which are released for every $50 paid in rake or tournament fees for a measly 20% effective rakeback. You have 90 days to earn the bonus.

In addition to the $400 deposit bonus, 888 Poker also offers several medium value first depositor freerolls, which have significant value to casual players. New players get access to a single First Depositors Challenge, which has an approximate value of $1.64. You also get access to seven $500 First Depositors Freerolls, valued at 62¢ each, as well as that week's $1000 Depositors Freerolls, valued at 26¢ and 45¢.

888 Poker frequently offer different sign-up bonuses. For example, they often offer an $88 FREE no deposit poker bonus package. This package is ideal for players who want to try out 888 Poker risk-free. However, you only receive $8 up-front ($1 in cash and $7 in tournament tickets), with the remaining $80 as a pending bonus that is earned in $8 increments ($1 in cash and $7 in tournament tickets). You must earn 250 points in a single day to release each $8 increment (only 1 per day). To earn 250 bonus points, you will need to generate $2.50 in rake or fees.

Although these tournaments are no longer available, chances are that you can find freerolls of similar value at any time on 888 Poker.

Also note that although most 888 Poker freerolls are in fact free, they still require you to earn at least 1 point (i.e. achieve level 1 in the 888poker Club) before you can enter.

Maximizing Your 888 Poker Rakeback

Obviously, to maximize the benefits of any poker rewards program, you should play as many free poker tournaments as possible. Unlike many poker sites that offer an abundance of low value freerolls, 888 Poker freerolls provide decent value, making them worth your time.

Although the 888poker Club rewards are pretty weak, it is worth climbing the status levels just to gain access to the freerolls. Remember, once you gain a status level, you will never lose it! As a result, you can achieve level 100, never play online poker for real money again with 888 Poker, and still qualify for all 888 Poker freerolls!

Depending on the stakes you typically play, you may want to consider making weekly deposits to 888 Poker to gain access to the weekly $1000 Depositors freerolls. Just because you make a deposit doesn't mean you need to put that money at risk.

You should also play a game with 888 Casino every Thursday to gain access to the $1,000 Free Casino Mix-Up each Saturday. This tournament offers incredible value, and as long as you don't gamble too much with 888 Casino, you should be able to recoup your losses with this high value freeroll tournament!
