About 888 Poker
Everyone has heard of these guys: They’ve sponsored the World Snooker Championship, Middlesbrough Football Club and now have cricket legend, Shane Warne, endorsing their product. As part of a group that includes bingo, 888 Sports Betting and 888 Casino. 888 Poker is in good company with plenty of credibility inherited from its sister brands – although they didn’t launch until 2010.
Before that, the Poker site was the highly-regarded and still operational Pacific Poker: That site remains, but it is more for high-stakes only players. Whereas 888 Poker appeals to a more casual player, with the community play features allowing you to play against your friends and in teams using the latest 3d visual technology if you wish. There’s even a chance to play webcam poker if you wish, for the ultimate in interactive online entertainment. Also, play via their 888 Poker app to enjoy on the go.
888 Poker belongs to Cassava Enterprises – a Gibraltar-registered company – along with the other sites, via their Holdings Plc.

888 Poker offers a free £20 incentive with no deposit required, though if you do decide to deposit funds with them, you’ll receive a 100% welcome bonus worth up to £400. After that the welcome package continues, with free entry into their $100,000 first depositors’ freeroll tournament plus seven different $500 freeroll competitions and a $1,000 depositors’ freeroll.
Regular depositors benefit with tickets to a recurring $1,000 freeroll, and there are daily challenge tournaments with a guaranteed prize pool of $1 million per month. There is also a couple of unusual ideas here: The Double or Nothing sit and go games reward the top half of each table with an equal share of the total pot. While the rest of the players get nothing, and there’s also a chance to set up private tournaments with your friends, using webcams for an intimate experience. That’s as close as you can get to playing in your back room on a Friday night.
There’s also a referral scheme: You can use email, Twitter and a posted link to prompt your friends to 888 Poker. They will reward you with $8 and a ticket to a special tournament to win big prizes.
