Title:Tired of 888s lack of respect for its clients.0 out of 0 readers found this review helpful
I have been on 888 for 3 years now and in the main I was happy with the site which has great graphics and good structure but the site has not pushed on and taken advantage of opertunities to bury the competition. They didnt introduce a player search feature which every other site has, Still running silly late reg Mtts, Didnt change the system to offer choice of currency used which means players get raped on cashout, They still dont allow cashout by visa debit.

The one that really irritates me is that when I played in a rebuy Mtt while multi tabling and was allin on the mtt table but was typing in the chat on other table and just at the same time as i hit enter the rebuy option popped up and instantly $32 gone as I had no intention of rebuying. This issue was pointed out to 888 6 months ago. One would think this is a simple fix but 888 just couldnt be arsed doing anything for its customers. the support as you must be aware from their reputation is totally farcical. They dont even understand english most of them which is comical as it is the most used language in the world and 888 is based in the UK with large representation in Australlia which is again an english speaking country.

888 has its priorities all wrong and I am now looking for a new site. I gave this site plenty of time to sort itself out but if they cant do it in a 3 yr span its never gonna happen. Still the positive is I take a $2000 profit with me which doesnt sound like alot but on 888 that is a fortune as the hyped up RNG makes it very hard to make profits on 888 but with the right strategy and playing at the right level and avoiding tilt it can be done. Avoiding tilt on 888 is a real skill because the site would drive a shrink insane.

Thanks for the good times 888. Cheeeeriooooo

Title:my opinion0 out of 3 readers found this review helpful
The deal seems fair to me and you don't seem get an abnormal amount of bad beats like on other sites although quads does seem to turn up more than normal. Had my trip Queens beaten by quad nines the other day.
The cash games at lower limits are beatable but not easy. I prefer to play cash on Betfair where there are some real idiots-- I raised AA got reraised by 99 and put allin by KJ suited..tripled up)
The tournaments on 888 are great. I only play the longer format - no turbos and there are a decent number of tournys below 5 bucks every day. Have ended up on 5 or 6 final tables in last couple months with a best of second place.
You can throw eggs and rotten tomatoes at players that annoy you or throw a trophy for a well played hand or hero call...bit silly but harmless.
Not tried the cashout option as yet and understand you need quite a lot of documentation to go though it.. we will see
They are running two $5000 buck freerolls a day at the moment and you can get tickets by playing a simple catch game online. (Live the Dream) Plenty of other freerolls available for less cash every day also.

Title:Exchange rate differences1 out of 8 readers found this review helpful
Just reading posts and mull47 (?) caught my eye -

if the ex rate is like 65.5p to the $they round it up when you deposit. they pay 60p to the pound when you withdraw.

When you look at F/X rates - the buy/sell are always different. My Natwest bank has a shocking buy/sell rate so the discrepancies come from these -


1.5187 Sell Rate

1.7304 Buy Rate

So as annoying it is to lose money to this Cr&p, you cant blame 888 for it.

Title:Push or Fold = Juicy :)1 out of 8 readers found this review helpful
Not sure why everyone is bitching, I have been a profitable player for 4 years and came to 888 from pokerstars for a change. I have acheived platinum star (18% rakeback) and am pretty happy with it, I'm also well on my way to acheiving vip for the 27%. The push or fold games are an absolute gold mine (for players, and 888)
Buy in is 5bb and you have people limp-calling shoves with 78 :)even at 10/20.
All the people bitching about being "rigged" are simply muppets who lose on all sites because they are "rigged". Look in the mirror, you suck at poker. 888 you rock! Only downfall is pretty small player base for tournaments, but even those are extremely soft so I can't complain. Made my first cashout for 5k, didnt need to send documents or anything until you cashout over 5k in a month. It was wired directly to my account within 5days. But ya, go 888

Title:Its random0 out of 6 readers found this review helpful
All you people remember this the cards are random got it.Remember this the cards are random on every site.All there is a random number generator producing 7 cards.Got it.Stop reading patterns when they are not there,its all random got it.Maybe read "Fooled by randomness" it might help.Lotteries are balls selected randomly in a machine, poker sites have cards represented by random numbers generated by computer got it. You can read every book going but remember the cards are random got it.It is two random numbers which are your hole cards plus five random numbers on the table which connect randomly.It is random got it.

ran┬Ědom 1. Having no specific pattern, purpose, or objective: random movements. See Synonyms at chance.

Its random got it.

Title:Blowyourload9 out of 72 readers found this review helpful
I've had bad beats on a lot of sites including FulLTilt, where I used to play most. But most of my bad beats where on Entraction. I've learnt not to blow my load too quickly though. :) It's all about playing safe. On 888, I love the software. I have made money on this site. I used also make money on Fulltilt. It's always the case that a bad trades man always blames his tools.

I agree with a previous poster, the webcam is a lot of fun.

Date:Tuesday, May 27, 2014 its because you're sh--.0 out of 3 readers found this review helpful
Thought I'd pop on and amuse myself reading some of these reviews. Not withstanding some general complaints about customer service etc the rest of the reviews are hilarious.

Its not rigged you stupid muppets its because your sh-- and have no understanding of variance. Of course you'll get hit with runner runner straights or get AA cracked by some retard with a sh-- hand it happens.

The argument "I used to win in 2008 and can't win at all now therefore its rigged"....LOL guess what? A trained chimpanzee could win then.

Wake up and smell the coffee peeps, there's something wrong here and its not the site.

Title:Great new product14 out of 105 readers found this review helpful
They upgraded my software last week...What a change.
Finally looks like something i would want to play (always played there because I was making money, but hated every minute...)
And they actually listened to me - I asked them (well probably many people did) to add an online store with branded items so I can use my points, and it is now there!
Still the liquidity issues, but looks like it is growing in the past week or so.
