888 Poker is a massively popular online poker room that has recently been voted the most trusted name in online gaming. You will no doubt instantly recognise its logo from the numerous events it sponsors, which goes some way to explaining why so many people immediately think of 888 in relation with online poker. However, despite spending so much on huge marketing campaigns 888 Poker must still have some cash left over to spend on continually updating the site and innovating new features that other poker rooms soon try to emulate.
888 Poker offers two choices in terms of the client you use to get at the tables. The downloadable version will only work on Windows, but the browser-based one should work through any browser. If you opt for the downloadable version you will definitely have the best experience as it's the best way to get access to all the innovative features 888 Poker offers. The latest of these is the ability to link up your web cam and play against other people at the table face to face. This adds an extra level compared to a standard online poker game and goes some way to capturing the excitement and intensity of a real live world game. There are too many other features to mention, but rest assured this is an excellent client and is constantly being updated.
888 Poker offers a wide range of tournaments, but to really get a feel for the schedule you will have to sign in to the client as there isn't a lot of information available on the web site. The site is known for its daily challenge series which can total up prize pools of more than £145,000, but there are plenty more besides. 888 Poker has one of the best freeroll schedules we have seen and some very low buy-in to high guaranteed prize tournaments which are great for new players. Furthermore there are always lots of satellites to big live events so no matter which one you fancy trying for 888 Poker should be able to accommodate.
The reward scheme at 888 Poker is pretty good, but perhaps not one of the best we have seen. Winning player points levels up your VIP status, which in turn unlocks new bonuses and rewards. One thing that stands out is the number of freeroll tournaments on offer at higher VIP levels and also the size of them – often stretching up to £25,000! It's also a nice idea that you can win a high VIP status level just by entering one of the weekly tournaments as this can give you a welcome boost when it comes to winning big. Points can also be exchanged for cash or spent on a variety of gadgets and other goodies in the online store.
It's easy to see why 888 Poker is one of the best known names in online poker. Unlike many hyped up products it doesn't disappoint either as it puts as much effort into maintaining an excellent poker room as it does into its huge marketing campaigns. Both beginners and pros will feel at home here as there is something for everyone and signing up is completely free so why not give it a go today?
