There is a large variety of poker games to choose from at 888 Poker. The company has won a number of awards over the past few years, like the ‘Best Betting and Gaming Company’ and the ‘Operator of the Year’ Award from the Leisure Group in 2007 and 2008, the ‘Gold Readers Choice Award’ for the Top Casino from the Gambling Online Magazine Awards in the year 2008 and ‘Casino of the Year’ award from E-gaming Awards in 2007.
888 Poker offers attractive bonuses to its members. The introductory bonus of 100%, up to $400 may seem modest but the advantage is that you receive a 25% upfront payment, so that you can play without having to pay from your pocket.
Previously, 888 Poker used simple graphics for their games which began to look increasingly primitive with lots of bugs as the years went by. In 2010 the company upgraded their gaming software with state-of-the-art graphics using Poker 6 software.
The new POKER 6 software now offers over 100 new features and is probably the best in the industry. The graphics are excellent and the lobby offers some of the best search functions for beginners, bur also for more experienced players. There’s also an impressive 3D gadget feature if you’re into that kind of thing. Aside from the innovative software, 888Poker is also known for running a large number of tournaments with good structures and for running a huge amount of freerolls for players looking to build their bankroll from scratch.
