888Poker Review 2015
***THIS ROOM DOES NOT ALLOW US PLAYERS***
888Poker (formerly Pacific Poker) has fast become a popular choice of room for many Hold'em players (as our rankings suggest) due to the loose games and high value promotions. 888Poker is part of the 888 Holdings group which is the company behind the world's largest casino, Casino-on-Net. Not short of a bob or two. As with any poker site that comes with integrated casino, the potential for loose action is always substantially higher. There is no exception here - view flop percentages are regularly over 70%, meaning that players don't know when to fold - good for profitability. The software supports Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven-Card Stud and Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo. Overall, game variety is pretty good and vary between No-Limit, Limit, Pot-Limit and Fixed-Limit.
The site has appeal and boasts good graphics and stable platform. The software itself has great features including an improved search function and site layout, 3D-avatars to play with and improved multi-tabling abilities with up to 4 tables tiled or the ability to have your tables cascaded. You'll also find beginner tables, a quick seat function and a function designed to allow you to play with friends. The site also has an integrated casino, bingo and backgammon platform for you in case you want the variety.
Top15Poker have an attractive bonus for all new players. You'll receive £12 FREE (or equivalent currency) as soon as you register your account and should you choose to deposit, you'll be entitled to double your money up to a max value of $400 (.i.e. deposit $200 - get $400). There are also a ream of freerolls that you will gain access to.
The presentation of the site is impressive with a well laid out lobby and dark appealing graphics. The site is owned and operated by a massive player in the gaming field, so it comes as no shock that there is attention to detail on the presentation side of things. The lobby has great functionality and the whole site is generally very impressive with a solid, easy to navigate structure. With a free money offer, you won't be disappointed at what is now one of the largest players in the poker market, and rightly so.
The last 5 years have seen a marked improvement in the software capabilities. Prior to this the graphics were mediocre supported by limited functionality - this was disappointing for a brand the size of 888.com. In may 2007 the software saw a big upgrade and a more recent upgrade moved up to the Poker 6 client, which saw huge improvements across the board. Seven years on, the client now has vastly improved graphics, an awesome game search function, 3D-avatars, a mini-view function, improved multi tabling, a wider variety of games and instant access to the 888.com integrated casino.
The lobby is well presented and shows average pot, hands played per hour, stakes and limits. In addition the speed of the tables is indicated and does vary. The software supports Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven-Card Stud, Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo and the relatively new addition of their speed poker - SNAP. Game variety is pretty good and vary between No-Limit, Limit, Pot-Limit and Fixed-Limit.
There are Jackpot tables, a bad beat jackpot and an excellent choice of Sit N Go tournaments and heads up poker on offer. All in all, it's now a great choice for any player.
