Title:888 profit number generator !132 out of 137 readers found this review helpful
All this sites are rigged, some more some less.
Why? -because they can.
Why? -how else would they make a profit.
Everybody knows this sites are nothing more then a big scam and money laundering factories, well almost everybody...
Promise of easy money will always cloud your judgment.

Only one who benefits from this sites (sponsored whores, employees, feeble minded) can claim that this "companies" operate legit and fairly, please...

Through the history gambling has always been associated with?... think for yourself.

Title:GOLD STATUS player * 888 Poker RNG is a funny thing; explicit version68 out of 71 readers found this review helpful
Does not matter what you have studied from e-books , poker books, EV, HM2 , the card generator is running rigged with flushes and sets. I can be certain for the fact that theres a abnormal amount of running numerical and flush cards from flop to river makes online poker a joke : at least 888 poker. Theres not one extremely good player tournament pool payout structure given the average traffic at the site. Besides , I dont see colluding and dont believe in a thing for the most part that the RNG is sophisticated enough to score otherwise to manipulate a so called random community deal.

Past results . looking at any player that you lose to majority of the time when you bubble or get knocked out is percentagely high that the player has not cashed recently in a few games or is just losing player, and this is no coincidence that the gods with the other player because I have a structered pattern of this which makes thus a proven theory. You as a player may even try, just deliberately lose 10 tournaments and then jump to a higher buyin tournament and you will see how god mode you actually run. Again this is absolutely no coincidence. I have witnessed losing players that are calling station fish to river with pairs and turn and river nothing but runners, if you pot the flop and the fish jams with third pair and you have a set or paired nut flush draw those fish will run you off to the river. Please, yes miraculous things do happen in poker, but to see a constant strain of pattern that I have seen makes the entire term 'luck' an illusion.

Now comes the funny part of 888 poker, 'rebuy tournaments' vs 'guaranteed', again it is no coincidence that in a rebuy tournament that there are way more premium deals from AK - 88 from early position right through to the button. Players are going to play on average 10% tighter in a guaranteed tourney, but this does not change the fact that there are still the very same fish in these very same tournaments not changing their styles because you know they are fish with minimal brain power. And better yet those tournaments still end roughly around the same time as a rebuy tournament. Difference is if you like me that play 6 tournaments at once both rebuys and guaranteed you will see a alarming increase in action boards whether it be two players or 5 players in a hand. The tournament speed difference in comparison with the number of players and taking into account the player prize pools is entirely juiced up to marginal prize payouts, hand orcestrated, expected tournament ending time , and handicapping of who and where roughly according to statistics a player should roughly finish.

You can shear a sheep many times but you can only skin him once (Rounders)

For one, me personally , other suspecting players and even excuse me in saying tools or fish not to sound too attacking, that sense there's something is amiss at 888 poker and its not all random but rather the belief that the site itself wants you to believe. Peace out

Title:Skrill moneybookers 62 out of 65 readers found this review helpful

My complaint is simple, and its 2/10 at best because you do get your money. I play a lot on Pokerstars and Fulltilt . When I request my withdrawals at Pokerstars or Fulltilt , I usually get my money within 20 seconds along with emails and confirmations of payment. At 888 Poker I wait days, firstly a request goes through , then it must be checked and cleared which takes almost 2-3 days in order for it to be processing which in this period theres always this option over 2-3 days to reverse withdrawal. If me the customer would like to withdrawal, why in the heck would I want to reverse withdrawal my funds? Besides, then while its in process theres still an added waiting period . Hows This, if its a weekend it usually takes longer. With Skrill being the leading deposit and withdrawal method for online poker , and to get a snail slow service of wthdrawal delivery from 888 poker is really poor. Quite frankly its pathetic and its shocking service. And my point is that 888 given that while you always have to check on the status of your withdrawal with the constant option of reverse withdrawing makes this a taking the piss with customers to lure them into playing on, and the worst part about it is that if you do decide to reverse withdrawal. I have to rewait the full period of 2-3 days etc etc etc. Thats just bullocks mate. And to make things even worst by far is the fact the exchange rate jumps up and down on a daily basis, so by the time you get your money I am always getting a lower exchange rate payout after monitoring everyday since I process my withdrawal which draws my conclusion that 888 poker cashier and withdrawals department is doing this deliberately and intentionally to score extra bucks which is not fair , thats scamming people. weather it be cents or a couple of $, if the site does this with all the traffic and lets say processes lets say for example 10000 withdrawals a month, the site is actually scoring top dollar over its customers. This excludes all the rake 888 poker players are making for the site before making withdrawals. Easy come easy go in the cashier box to ask me how much I would like to deposit , and my deposits and bonuses get added on within 30 seconds, but when I want my money out, I am getting F'd around on a piss hunt waiting and waiting. I will not tolerate this suicide service from 888 poker no longer because I have drawn conclusions that this is a scam and lets not look into 888 pokers marvelous Random number generator where my results are not really holding up as they should due to obvious fish protection. I would not recommend 888 poker to another buddy and am telling all my friends my story and to leave 888 poker. It would not be the end of the world leaving 888 poker anyway. Its not all that special, I don't even get weekly cashback, I just get status upgrades to play freeroles. Now thats some joke! All that rake to retain a status to play weekly and monthly freeroles. Get the F out of here. godspeed peeps.

Title:investigate this blatant scam site38 out of 40 readers found this review helpful
I am a top line NL Holdem tournament player with several years experience who consistently finishes in the final 30 prizegetters of the Pokerstars 100k free roll which had between 8 to 16 thousand entrants and sometimes even more players.
When i decided to give 888 a go i could not believe how easy initially found it with the smaller numbers of players in multi table tourneys,often only a couple of hundred in real money , and two thousand odd in free rolls. Within a few weeks of playing low stakes tourneys i was a thousand of dollars up and also on the leaderboard in the top twenty Australian players.
After making the final table yet again in a six seater 2 dollar rebuy with a commanding chip lead i was pleased to be dealt aces and called substantial all in pre flop by a player who held KK and hit his two outer to make trips.
To my surprise i was dealt AA again in the next hand , and my pre flop all in was called by a player with QQ -who surprise surprise also hit their two outer Q and busted me out of the tournament in sixth place.
So on a six handed final table with a commanding chip lead i was dealt consecutive hands of AA and busted out by consecutive trip KK and QQ.
The next half a dozen final tables my incredible bad luck continued. Ak beaten by AJ ,Aj beaten by A10 and A6, 1010 beaten by 66 and A 10 beaten by K10=all two and three outers miraculously hitting.
Somewhat discouraged i moved to six seater $3.50 NL Holdem sit and go single table turbos,being able to consistently win at other sites where only top two are paid i figured i should be able to clean up considering 888 paid top three.
WRONG! what i saw on those six handed tables nearly has turned me off online poker for life. Talk about juiced and set up for action to reward donks ,eliminate players and push them into paying the buy in for the next game as fast as possible !.
AA vs KK vs QQ vs 1010 six handed seen not once but twice in the first couple of thousand hands no less.!
A Royal flush, full houses and flushes beaten by quads in the same hand, on and on it went. Very smartly i began to sit out and observe. i noticed many what could only be called" Hollywood" hands. blatant set ups ,and miracle river cards, I am sure many of you who have played 888 know what I am talking about only too well. No you are not just imagining it, it is a blatant rigged scam and set up. You would not catch me playing cash games on 888 if my life depended on it and an enquiry should be held into this absolute rip off joke site ASAP. I have withdrawn my money closed my acc and would not go near them again with a ten foot pole.

Title:Too dodgy21 out of 23 readers found this review helpful
Apart from the clunky graphics I really don't trust this site. I can handle the odd bad beat cos it happens but my last experience really disturbed me
Went all In with queens. The only bigger stack on the table called me
With 9 4

And hit a straight

No human is going to put their entire stack on 9 4 unless they know what's about to happen. Or unless they're a bot programmed into the system

Not going back

Title:Not real poker17 out of 19 readers found this review helpful
So I played live for 2 3 years. Always was wary of online given as many players i know live who are solid always say its a crapshoot.

Forget the RNG at first, none of the sit n gos or Mtts offered actually have anything remotely resembling a live poker game. Stack size of 1500 are useless as you pretty much end up with 1/3rd of your stack in if you decide to play a hand all the way.

Now the quality of players is atrocious, so this should be great, it should be like shooting fish in a barrel. However its not, it is impossible as you are obviously kept from winning. If a fish calls you twice, they lucked out every single time. E.g. hand I played, I have KK, flop 25K, I bet, called, turn 6, I make a bet which is 75% of his stack, he flats, river is 8. SO KK v XX ob board of 25K68. What does the fish have? 222? K6? K8? I go all in and go home as fish has 97. I literally could not explain how he was even in the hand given I raised pre, post and on turn. This is a very common occurence. You'll take most hand 3 or 4 ways, donks will limp then call any raise. This should of course be extremely profitable for the good player, but why would 888 offer a system where in their most profitable fish (who'll deposit every single time they play) get busted and quit.

I played for 2 days on here and saw enough, I only lost $20 thank god as I though I would test the site with a small deposit first.

My results

15 $1 sit n gos, 40 seaters, I lost 14 of these going out 30th or higher, every single one was a hand like: AK raises 3X, 4 callers, AK4 board, 6 turn, I bet again, 4 callers??????, I'm all in, fold, fold, long think from fish (dunno why, he clearly didnt), Call with 410 off suit, river is a 4. or: every play limps, I am on bb with 12 bigs and 99, just go all in as anything less will result in at least 5 way pot. one player ALWAYS calls. ALWAYS limp call an all in, literally the weakest play in poker. 99 V J7. Then the board comes 9 10 8. I go out again and obviously it was set up for me to get it all in on the flop anyway.

Remember they need weak players to splash the cash, play lots of games and generate rake.

Online poker is not poker, it is not shuffled by hand and dealt randomly. Every single hand is predetermined to maximise rake.

Could all these people shouting rigtards please post

A screenshot of them winning

B A verified sharkscope account

C Proof of ID that said account is their property.

Curiously, none of them can produce that, the pros also never seem to play online? And 888 also seems to be unable to attract actual pro poker players. (who you note will advertise for site, but curiously they don't play there???). You are literally just gambling against a house and your skill will not help you here as greed will not allow you to chase of the weak regularly depositing fish and thats bad for 888.

Remember theres online one real type of poker, live shuffled by hand and random. Online every site is fixed and you will never win.

Title:Honey Tea - My Final 888 poker review10 out of 11 readers found this review helpful
Hello Me Mates

My country has officially been banned from 888 poker, and some coincidence I closed my account 2 weeks before this ban came into play which was last beginning of last month.
I have 2 popular voted posts about 888 poker about titles "Skrill Moneybookers" and "GOLD status Player".

I am just really surprised within a short space of time how 888 poker is actually been bombarded on a regular basis with negative reviews. 888 poker must really be going downhill. I have noticed just on observations without logging in that the traffic has steeply dropped and like I said reviews are just bad bad bad. Then 888 poker pulled out there sponsorship deal with Saurez because of a biting incident. Its a funny thing really because Suarez bit that Chelsea player not so recently, so what made this world cup incident so special? Now all of a sudden Suarez moves to Barcelona, that is like having Messi, Ronaldo, Van Persie, or any major recognised sports player on the cover of your site which is good promo for recreational players.

Its just seems 888 poker management and promo teams are making countless bad decisions one after the other and its bringing down their poker world. People were saying two or three years ago 888 poker was going to plummet somewhere along the line and this is most probably the right time for 888 poker to drop. They have lost a major ambassador, S.Warne was the first, and now theres an epic fail on the second. 888 is also known for its sportsbook and casino - I really do not think hardly anybody made money on the sports side of life and most likely lost a few quidlickin dollars, and the casino - well the casino will just kill the players anyway but it just adds more losses to players. I am sure a few countries besides mine have been banned from 888 poker so the company overall can not be doing well at all.

My take on all these latest reviews is that 888 is going through a panic station, yes some sites are not 100% perfect and all, but 888 poker has a couple of illegal business ways of doing things. The chat is not really friendly and I cannot actually recalling feeling one bit comfortable in a chat room on 888 poker. my email replies took donkeys ages and sometimes I waited up to 2 weeks for a reply. 2 weeks! Thats crazy! The only time 888 gets off their Arse is when it comes to the ching ching deposit factor. Other than that 888 poker service is outright appauling!

If you read my previous titled posts, I spoke about the currency exchange fraud issue and time delays of withdrawals. Overall peeps, if you have read all my posts, you have to agree there are a lot of illegal business tricks happening at 888 poker. People thought iPoker network was up to no good illegal things, well I think 888 poker puts all sorts of toppings on the cake.

Lastly Fish, there will be fish on any online poker site. Thats 888 pokers selling point - Fishys.Unfortunately I see 888 poker as the king of all sucker online poker sites out there. Adios
