Title:18 month review1 out of 1 readers found this review helpful
This is my review of 888 after 18 months of play.

Deposit methods are plentiful. 10/10
Withdrawal cannot be done by visa debit which is bollox. 1/10
Support seems to be always out of hours. 1/10
Graphics and general layout is perfect. 10/10
The RNG is strange. Everyone always hits bluffing impossible. 1/10
Collusion is problem in DoN games specially new super turbo. 1/10
Poker community is non existant only about 5 ppl using it. 1/10
Traffic in cash games is good but horrific at high stakes SnGs.3/10
Selection of games and formats is ok. 6/10
Bonuses tie up deposits and freerolls are poor. 1/10
Server has disconnected me alot and support cannot explain. 1/10
Finally abusive players and colluders are not punished. 1/10

Total score = 37/120

Not as good as pokerstars, full tilt, pkr, paddypower, william hill, pokerheaven, partypoker or bettson.

888 is something for retarded gamblers to use to blow their money. All of the above sites have a structure to them where one can actually play poker and not bingo.

Title:jokers1 out of 1 readers found this review helpful
I was going to deposit on 888 until I heard that they let u deposit instantly no questions and when come to withdrawal require all sorts of details which is an absolute joke designed to deter one from withdrawing money and it should be illegal.

They should be forced by regulation to ask for those details before u deopsit. it is equally imortant to confirm ID at each stage and obviously the first stage which is deposit should take priority.

Anyway didnt deposit and wont deposit. Also heard that they have been known to refuse withdrawals even with ID and also that they have taken money from withdrawals.

ASK YOURSELF THIS. WHY DO PROS AVOID 888? ITS NOT GOT TO DO WITH QUALITY OF PLAYER. 888 Does not want them there and have there software setup to favour addicted gamblers because a gambler will be far less likely to withdraw than a pro out to make a living.

I hope this message wakes up even just 1 person to the reality of the scam that 888 runs and ill be happy. Im not a losing player out for a whinge and as i said i didnt deposit just played freerolls and u can check my stats on sharkscope as the name above is my screenname.

Title:888 review1 out of 1 readers found this review helpful
I can honestly say that 888 is a complete waste of time.
Customer support is a joke, it takes them at least 48h to reply (sometimes longer)and when they finally do you find your self having to ask more questions because of their lack of response.
I obviously can't prove it, but I would bet on them being rigged and full of "shills". Player's calling off their stack with nothing on the flop and hitting runner runner repeatedly. I played in one tournament and I watched a player win like 7 straight hands with trash cards, 3 of them was all ins and he was hitting straights, 2 pairs or flushes. More suspicious is them hitting runner runner. Look out for players with a loud of numbers after their name. Example: name12034
Another thing I witnessed in my short time playing on 888 was a player sat at a 0.2/0.5$ table, started with 1$, within 5 hands was up over 8$, then left the table and re-joined seconds after buying in for only 1$. In other words the player left to "bank" 7$ and came back... Just to make sure that 888 used the same rules as every other online poker site, I tried leaving the table and re-joining for a lesser amount. Result: "you can not seat the same table for less than was originally playing".
The rake is a joke and so are their bonuses. A word of advice for players like me that only "dabble" at micro/low stakes, it will take you for ever to reach the required points to get your bonuses.
Lastly, if your a player that enjoys playing a variety of games (PLO8, stud, 8game, etc.), for get it! One of my favorites is PLO8, I could only ever find 1 or 2 max tables to play at and had to sit in line on the waiting lists to join.
I played for just short of a month on 888 and I regret every minute. Wish I never signed up.

Title:Almost the perfect site1 out of 2 readers found this review helpful
I have been playing on 888 for 6 years and my experience has been largely positive. Im down about $1700 in that time but its my own fault because I chased losses and gambled rather than play smart poker. Over the past year I am up $1000 and this is because I took responsibility for my own mistakes and learned about bankroll management, managing bad beats or tilting and only playing poker when sober. Playing poker with drink or drugs in you = very bad idea. Anyway below is how I rate 888.

Software graphics are excellent.

Support are quick and helpful.

Promotions are top of the game, great freeroll structure and great bonuses.

Depositing is easy and lots of different methods.

Cashing out is the only flaw in the ointment. It is quick enough but the exchange rate is way out of line. eg a few months ago I cashed out $500 which was supposed to get €445 by the 888 rate which was the lowest rate of the days between processing request and money arriving. The central bank rate showed I was supposed to get €455 and again this was the lowest between processing request and arrival but I only received €420. This seems to be a common complaint and previous poster is either lying about withdrawing money or blind because if he/she withdrew money they would have noticed the missing money absolutely no doubt.

Game choice again is excellent as is traffic especially at peak times.

Lots of players who play like donks which means if you are a disciplined poker player you will win over time.

Great poker community and I love interacting with players on the site and even the odd slagging match with a player is fun unlike other sites I have played on where no one talks and one feels like their playing against bots.

Please 888 just pay players the correct amount they withdraw and this site will reach the top and topple stars.

Title:888poker experience: Deposit OK, Withdrawal Not Allowed1 out of 2 readers found this review helpful
Here is a story about my short experience with 888poker:

One day I decided to try 888poker. I made a deposit which took seconds, played couple tournaments and after that tried to make withdrawal... And circus began:

April 23, 2016

After my withdrawal request I suddenly got requirement to prove my age (strange, when I made the deposit I was old enough).
I sent a scan of my passport and received:
"We can confirm that we have now received and verified the recently requested documentation. As a result any restrictions have now been removed from your account, and any waiting withdrawals can now be processed."

May 15, 2016

After 3 week waiting I sent request to inform me when 888poker is planning to complete my withdrawal transaction.

May 20, 2016

I received:

"Meanwhile, we have to temporarily restricted your account. In order for us to reinstate your account fully, we ask that you verify your identity by submitting the following documents:

- A photocopy of your credit card ending #2439 (front & back)
- A photocopy of a recent utility bill showing your name & address"

Now is clear 888poker decided to keep my money.

Title:cashout does not pay full6 out of 8 readers found this review helpful
I have to say this as the post by is very misleading. I can proove that 888 did not pay me what I should have got and I presented 888 with this evidence and they could not explain why and then a month later they sent another mail blaming the bank. I checked with my bank and no issue. 888 will blame everyone else but themselves. I find it offensive when someone says that there are no issues whatsoever with payment as they may have had no issue but they cannot speak for everyone. I know several other players who have had problems many of whom have left 888. I decided to stay a little longer to see if its a once off and it if it happens again im out of here. I dont want to scare people away from 888 as it is a good enjoyable poker experience but people have a right to know about any wrong doing or payment problems.

Heybudy, spend some time playing on this site. Nice software but randomcalc. sucks. To get a Raeback got me almost 4 weeks for an approvment. There are better sites around. Titan Poker is much better and softer. Never playing again here.
