Title:Back on 888 Poker vs Party Poker1 out of 1 readers found this review helpful
Well its been about a 9 months, but back on 888. Play on Party as thats just my baby. Just came off a 3 hour session 4 tabling, not bad to say the least. Must say the games are not soft, its actually trash, would rather play people that have half a clue in poker than depend on luck, I think its harder to read trashy players and some of those hands are real sitters. Will probably get back into the swing after the HUD runs for a good 50 sessions and stats show, but its not all that bad. Put it this way, VIP programme wise its not great on 888 or Party but theres money to be made on both. But if one can get used to 6 tabling on 888 and at least 6 tables = 12 combined, hourly rate will be all smiles. Prefer Party for cash games in all honesty and 888 poker for SNG's purely based on the rake, Party's rake is pretty phenominal when it comes to SNG's and 888 is really a luxery. 888 SNG's are I feel much looser and finish faster than Party.

Although I really enjoy both sites, its pretty awesome to play both sites, just would be really nice of Party Poker to drop that 3% withdrawal fee, or lower that rake. Played on practically every major site and can say that I still today have not found a site I am 10/10 happy with, I don't think there will ever come a time . But I will take what is given and make the most of what is available on the internet market for online poker.

Funny enough I have nothing bad to say about either site because there pros and cons combined altogether I feel makes up for 1 complete site although its 2 if you understand what I'm saying. The ONLY thing that 1 or both these sites need is an excellent VIP programme/rakeback, I'm no top of the level VIP player as I don't have the funds for the stakes but its unfortunate that players that play lower than the highest stakes don't reap the benefits which makes sense in all aspects but you know somethings could be better to make a players experience just slightly more comforting.

This is my review , like it or don't like it, doesn't really matter, its just my fairshare of experience on these 2 sites. Both are good sites. 7/10 for both. Cheers

Title:888 sucks...and is a huge rip off!!!!!!!1 out of 1 readers found this review helpful
I have nothing GOOD to say about 888 poker and it's not bad beats, I'm talking about
I seen plenty of them also and even watching other games not just my own's the worse site I've played on
Ok First off when I downloaded it ///my first deposit .. there was a special with a bonus code "5forfree" so I type in the 5forfree along with my deposit
and my first deposit was 20.00 using instbanking
ok first off I was never credited the 5.00 ... ok it happens ... I talked to them and they said the offer didn't apply to me because they gave me a different bonus

Ok my next deposit I used the same "Instbanking" I went to load on 20.00 and I cant.
I can only load on min. 40.00 ....they said the first deposit of 20.00 is only allowed once
my question is ok why even bother ... it's because not many people are going to load on 40.00 plus ..they normally just do a small deposit to see how it goes.
OK so I figure ok ... So I deposit and use another code which was suppose to give me
2 ~ 3.00 tournament tickets ... which once again I didn't receive.
so while in the cash area it's the only way you will get quick response
I told her my issues I've had about the site
and I told her I didn't feel comfortable about depositing any more funds when they couldn't honor their own bonuses
All I got from her was I'm sorry you feel this way.
I said NO I'm sorry for wasting my money on this site. I'm going to go to Pokerstars
I than got disconnected from the site and I had no internet for about an hour
I can't delete 888 off my computer it has some INSTALL.LOG error
Now tell me they didn't boot my ip

Title:poor in my opinion5 out of 6 readers found this review helpful
terrible customer support.
joke of an RNG.
feed on addiction cashier auto pops up when low on funds. always e-maing offering free money with deposits.
players abuse you at every chance they get and support does nothing.
support does not punish collusion.
only positive is graphics but who gives a f--- when everything else is bollox.

Title:hmmmm2 out of 2 readers found this review helpful
Story short

I deposited $200 for my first deposit with that 100% bonus, I done ok , and took my shots to build a BRoll quick but it never worked and tilted badly or just got stupid beats. Now hows this me mates, I had $11.90 left in my account, Played a HU game vs a Canadian for my last buy in of $10 I think, we had a raised and allin pot for my 888 life, Me 33 Board KK3K3 Canadian 66, So he had me on the turn with KKK66, and I made quads on the river, I must say, I can only make the self explaination that I was still on my 1st deposit, and my 888 Bankroll was on the line, I think thats totally rigged whether you believe it or not even though I won.

Anyway, turned by $20 into $380 in 3 days just on Double SNG's, just by being a smart player and outplaying donks, but give me a break, that quads hand never happens, I am off 888 now though, they don't have rakeback and the rewards are so shocking and you earn 2 Points for $1 rake, what a BS system, if you are not a winning player and are not getting rakeback, then 888 is just raking you up daily, Playing poker for fun is for dummies, I enjoy the thrill of the game,but sorry, this is not a great site in my opinion, I also found Stars quite boring, watched youtube MAGIC612 all of his videos 190+ - its exactly like that, and rewards / rakeback is not good if you play small/lowmedium stakes, advertising maybe good and HD and colours used to make it look so marvelous,but I am looking for the Bills , the best is not best , its like the sheep herd of politics, looking past all these things, and enjoying other networks ty.

Title:not safe1 out of 1 readers found this review helpful
If you use 888 check your system with a top ofthe range anti-virus software as 888 contains adware. Please note on their website how they say "no adware". I have posted screenshots of this on other platforms. Only a good anti-virus will pick this up and one that is kept updated often. This makes me wonder what else they are hiding in the software. I have lost trust and confidence in 888 and withdrew my cash and deleted their software.

Title:888 still a joke4 out of 5 readers found this review helpful
just logged in on 888 for 1st time in years and to my surprise there are as usual heaps of tables at $100 and above SnGs with 1 player sitting just waiting for an unfortunate plyr to steal from. The names have changed but the location of the players is the same. I would bet everything they are the same dickheads.

If I was considering playing online pkr again definately not here. doin pretty well for myself without online pkr. you would be shocked how much these c---smokers take from u in a year.

Title:Unresponsible 8881 out of 1 readers found this review helpful
The claim that 888 makes about being a responsible gambling operator makes me laugh. My m8 had a severe problem and eventually he stopped and e-mailed them asking them to stop mailing him with promotions. A week later he was back gambling as a result of 888s promo encouraging him to deposit to earn free cash. Now hes back in the battle with addiction.

How 888 can ye call yourselves responsible but do this to players. Along with that 888 knows by trends who problem gamblers are. A f---ing blind person can spot them but 888 are only too happy to let people piss their wages away. 888 responsible my arse.

Title:Shills lol another 1 for the funny farm.2 out of 4 readers found this review helpful
Looks like someone lost their lunch money. Lesson you need to learn bud is don't play with what you cannot afford to lose u muppet. No one from any poker site gives a toss what we post here let alone waste their time defending their sites against groundless accusations. This sh-- been going on since online poker began. If you have evidence of any wrongdoing take it to the relevant people otherwise shut the f--- up and stop wasting everyones time having to read your pathetic conspiracy crap.

Title:Try this and spot the scam 888 are running for yourself0 out of 0 readers found this review helpful
For all the sceptics who think 888 play it straight go and try this. Get the latest exchange rate from USD to Euro and do a conversion on whatever amount you want. Now go to 888s cashier and do the same in the deposit section and just look at how much extra is being ripped from your account.

I did this and 888 were going to be taking €56 more from my account so I cancelled and got the f--- outta there.

This is something that anyone can do and is black and white no f---ing grey areas and no f---ing excuses for 888 or their reps who defend them now.

This is not a claim of rigging software pokerscout so make sure its not deleted because 888s customers and prospective customers have the right to know whats going on. Try it for yourself and if this is inaccurate then you can delete it.

888 blame the bank but no transaction was completed and no bank was involved as I just tested the rates. No matter what 888 will try to bullsh-- their way out of what is a clear scam which the regulator should hold them to account for as they have been getting away with this for years.

Title:They scam you with currency1 out of 1 readers found this review helpful
888 is scamming people with on the currency exchange and the amount that arrives is much less than even the worst rate. So blatant that its amazing that they are able to get away with it.

gambling sites get away with murder because of this perception that people just complain because they lose so when people make a complaint it is not followed up.

I was a winning player on 888 until they scammed me for a second time on the cashout so I left and joined another site which I wont promote but they pay 100% of what is promised.

Get away from 888 people because when you win you still lose.
