Title:Updated Review as much has changed in last few months.3 out of 3 readers found this review helpful
Reasons not to play on 888 are as follows:

There is a colossal fee on cashouts that they deny check yourself. Do the conversion using the official rate and then go to cashier and type in the amount on the deposit part and look at what will be debited from your account. Its always €60-€70 more than the official rate says should be debited and when you cashout you wont get that rate that you deposited with. Caught with your pants down and c--- in hand 888.

Wagering requirements are excessive.

Hard to multi table now since the change in software removed the chatbox from bottom left.

Reasons to play outlined below:

Good fun to play if you are responsible and play within your bankroll.
Players chat at tables and there is a good community that will help you with your game.
Stable connection and excellent graphics.
Traffic is good and game variety is ok but I'm not a fan of late reg its too long.
Lots of depositing methods.
Support is good but really needs live chat.
Freerolls are top class and the main point of why I play here.
I'm not a high volume or high stakes player so rake and rakeback are not my concern.

The other games 888 offers:

Flopomania-------- To be honest it wont last as its boring and no skill involved just blind luck and I disagree with any game where skill is not a big factor.

Blast--------- Fun to play but again the nature of the game means no matter what your allin after a few minutes and hoping for the best.

Pokercam------- A well intended idea but its obsolete because players just cover the camera so whats the point. Why would I play on camera when the others don't have the balls to do so.

Snap cash tables------ Like this as it take the tedious waiting on hands your not involved in to end.


Overall 888 is an enjoyable site to play on but as with every site only if you are responsible and know what you are doing. It gets a 6 because of the fee that they deny charging on cashouts and multi tabling problems I mentioned. The issue with the fee doesn't really bother me as I'm a low stakes and low volume player so I'm not going to be cashing out big sums anyway but if you are high volume player and going to be cashing out regularly you will be screwed more often than the top hooker in the Red Light District.

Title:The biggest disappointment in online poker today26 out of 28 readers found this review helpful
888 is the biggest disappointment in online poker today, and players have few options when they are mistreated by the site.
After playing for a couple of months, I was falsely accused of cheating at this site and they suspended my account. They said I was chip dumping, and it was an egregious lie! I told them to review the hand histories, and they continued with their utterly false accusation. 888 promised to send me my account balance and then tried to keep my money. It belatedly sent a bad check months later. Finally, 888 sent my account balance nine months after freezing my account, but it never did admit its error or apologize. From reading the reviews here, it is clear that this site routinely mistreats or swindles its customers in a variety of ways.

Prior to this, I had played on Bodog/Bovada, PokerStars, other sites, and in live games for more than ten years and had never had any problems with any of the sites or brick-and-mortar rooms.
888 should never have suspended my account. In addition, it should have carefully investigated the hands at my table and compensated me for any fraud perpetrated by the other players.
And there almost certainly was cheating at a number of the tables at 888, especially at the Double-or-Nothing SNG tables. There were some strange and sinister players at the SNG tables: they had the 888 logo and did not have a nationality displayed. Why was their location hidden? Who were those mysterious players:In-house players or bots?
In addition, the customer service at 888 is the worst I have ever seen. In fact, the only time it is efficient is when you deposit. Deposits are handles very quickly and easily. In fact, depositing is the only easy transaction I ever had with 888. If you try to resolve a problem or withdraw funds, 888's customer service is somewhere between non-existent and atrocious. In general, it takes about one week or longer for a reply to your queries. In fact, 888 often simply ignores customer emails.
How did such a bent and egregious poker site become the second largest in the industry? Click on almost any poker-related website and you see advertising for 888: this site largely maintains its rank by means of an aggressive advertising campaign. Player turnover at-and dissatisfaction with-this site must be enormous, but most poker-related websites continue to promote 888.
All 888 operations are suspect and the casino at 888 is not endorsed by any reputable online watchdog. It is a good idea to stay away from this dubious enterprise: poker, casino, and sports betting.
This website is an egregious example of what is wrong with online poker. This review comes with a strong caveat: do not deposit money or play at 888. It's better to play poker at a more reputable online site or in a brick-and-mortar casino.
