Some are playing just for fun and relaxation, but others have come to realise that poker can be a very profitable and exciting career, or a way of earning useful extra cash each month.

This rising popularity has led to a growth in the number of online poker sites and with so many it can be difficult to know which ones to use. This article will take a look at one of the biggest online poker sites: 888 Poker.


This site was originally called Pacific Poker, although it has been 888 Poker for some years now.

Its latest software upgrade saw close to 100 features added, including animal tags and a Lobby area for new players that no other such site has. Furthermore, the new software also means the graphics are now far more realistic. 888 Poker also has thirteen languages available – including French, German, Spanish and Italian. With customer support available via telephone, email or live chat, it is definitely one of the easiest online poker sites to use regardless of where you come from.


Of course, what is most important to potential players is the actual poker games choice and this site currently offers Texas Hold’em, 7 Card Stud, 7 Card Stud HI/LO. Omaha High and Omaha HI-LO poker games. On top of this, you also have 2 of 888 Poker’s own creations in BLAST and SNAP Poker. The exclusive BLAST game is for players pushing for those big wins, whereby lucky players can win up to 10,000x their stake depending on buy in. SNAP is for those time conscious players who want to play several hands in a short space of time. With the tables shuffling constantly allowing you to get a new hand every time you fold.


On top of the expected cash games, tournaments and variety of sit-and-go tables. You also get the added bonus of ring games and Face2Face Poker. Big tournaments are the $50,000 held on Thursdays and the $100,000 Sunday one, which both feature high standards of competition, while the Sit N Go tournaments range from 6-max games to full-ring ones with 9 or 10 hands. Often the site’s poker tournaments will have tie-in bonuses, such as ‘Challenge Series’ but promotional bonuses are available the minute you sign up – including the $888 one for doing so.
