You no longer need to be sat in front of a computer screen to enjoy playing poker games over at the 888 Poker site, for they have just launched one of the most advanced and highly configurable poker apps, and the best aspect of that app is that it is completely free to download!

However, it can often be a daunting task as a player when you do take delivery of any type of mobile device, for you may be a little unsure how to download the app and may be wondering if it is going to be offering you the type of playing experience that an online poker site would.

Have a look at androidpokersites.net to read the full review on 888 Poker Android app which is written by Gary Beachley. With that in mind we shall now give you a quick run through on how you can download and install the 888 poker mobile app onto your device and what you will find on offer when you launch it and log into it.

The first thing you need to do is to simply visit the 888 Poker website and when there on a mobile web browser you will be given a link which simply needs tapping to start to download their app. Once the app has been downloaded simply give the app permission to install onto you device and it will then install and be ready to use.

An icon will be placed on your devices screen and to launch it simply give it a tap. The app will then launch and you will be able to either sign up as a new player, or if you already have an online 888 Poker room account simply enter your username and password to log into the app.

Once you have logged in you will be required to make a deposit if you wish to play any of their poker games, and to do that simply click onto the cashier button and then choose how you would like to fund your account.

It is worth noting that the 888 Poker App is as highly secure and safe to use as their online poker platform and you will also be given just as many banking options on their app as you will have access to via their online gaming platform.

As soon as you have funds in your account then all that remains for you to do is to pick a table you wish to play in simply click in the table and you will then be allocated a position on that table.

They way in which you will be making your betting and playing decisions is the same as when you play at the 888 poker sites online poker room however instead of clicking on the respective buttons with your mouse when playing on the app you simply tap onto the buttons.

You will have access to just as many bonuses and will be automatically signed up to the 888 Poker sites rewards scheme when you register as a new player so you will not be losing out on bonuses and comps as you play in a real money playing environment.

888 Presents the $2,000,000 Super XL Series http://www.888pokerreview.org/888-presents-the-2000000-super-xl-series/ http://www.888pokerreview.org/888-presents-the-2000000-super-xl-series/#comments Fri, 02 Nov 2012 16:23:16 +0000 http://www.888pokerreview.org/?p=329 Tired of poker sites offering promotions that don’t even give you a great chance of winning any substantial amount of money?

Continue Reading]]> Tired of poker sites offering promotions that don’t even give you a great chance of winning any substantial amount of money? Well so was 888 Poker which is why they are unveiling the $2 Million Super XL Series; a 10 day event with at least $2 million in guaranteed prize money.

The 10 day series features events with buy-ins ranging from a little over $10 to over $200. The bigger the buy-in for an event is, the bigger the prize pool will be. Days to look out for in particular are November 18th as well as November 25th, between those two days over $1.4 million is guaranteed. Of course if you don’t want to shell out big bucks to buy-in to an event you can always qualify by lower buy-in satellite qualifiers. Some of the satellite qualifiers cost as little as $0.08, which is unbeatable for a tournament series of this caliber.

If all the above wasn’t enough to get you excited for the Super XL Series at 888, maybe the biggest event in the series will. On Sunday November 25th the Super XL Main Event will be held with a guaranteed prize pool of $500,000! To buy-in directly to the Main Event costs $525 but when you look at how much money you stand to win, that seems like a small price to pay. You would be hard-pressed to find another tournament series this large at any other site in the coming weeks.

If you are the type of person who plans ahead you will have no trouble doing so as 888 gives you the option to pin events to your own personal poker calendar. This function ensures that you will never miss another tournament event again. Registering for events has already started so you can head over to 888 and check out the events you may be interested in. Along with times and dates you can also find buy-in amounts and even ways by which you can qualify via satellites. Register for an Event now on 888Poker!

Continue Reading]]> If anyone caught the action from this past summer’s World Series of Poker you know just how exciting of a series it was. As it usually is, the final table at the Main Event was the pinnacle of excitement for the tournament and for 888 Poker.

888 Poker had a reason to be excited too, as their three pros, Jesse Sylvia, Russell Thomas, and Jake Balsiger, earned a combined $11.9 million. 888 was arguably one of the most well-represented poker brands in the entire World Series this year which is something to be proud of by itself.

Jesse Sylvia made it to heads up with a well known high stakes cash game player by the name of Greg Merson from the USA.  For second place Sylvia took home an outstanding 5.3 million. Have a look at the final hand between Greg Merson and Jesse Sylvia below.

 

In order to pass some of the joy on to you, the loyal players, 888 Poker is having three $3,000 guaranteed tournaments. While that by itself may already be an attractive enough offer, you are going to be even more excited when you find out that the buy-in is only $0.09! Usually, not only would it be difficult to find a tournament with a buy-in under 10 cents, but it would be near impossibly to find one with a buy-in that low and a guaranteed prize pool so large.

The date of the three tournaments is November 10th and one tournament will be held at 10:00, 14:00, and 20:00 respectively (all times GMT). Registration is already underway so it would be wise to get over to 888 and secure your spot immediately. The deadline to register for the event is at the start time of each tournament.

All you have to do to register is to go to your “Tournaments-All” tab. There is only a maximum of 3,000 players allowed to register for each of the three tournaments which is even more reason to head over to 888 and lock down your spot today. Thanks to 888, you too can bask in your own type of Poker Glory for an unbeatable price. Register for 888 Now are secure your spot!

888 Poker Enters Partnership with American Gaming Firm http://www.888pokerreview.org/888-poker-enters-partnership-with-american-gaming-firm/ http://www.888pokerreview.org/888-poker-enters-partnership-with-american-gaming-firm/#comments Wed, 04 Jul 2012 03:32:38 +0000 http://www.888pokerreview.org/?p=215 Over the last few years, 888 Poker has become one of the largest online poker rooms in all of Europe.

Continue Reading]]> Over the last few ye888 Holdingsars, 888 Poker has become one of the largest online poker rooms in all of Europe. Now, a new deal could give the company the opportunity to offer real money online poker to at least some residents in the United States, too.

888 Holdings – the parent company of 888 Poker – announced Sunday that they had reached an agreement with WMS Gaming, a slot machine supplier based in the USA. The partnership will allow 888 to combine their proprietary poker software with WMS Gaming’s American presence to offer poker to players in the United States.

At first, these games will only be available in play money mode. However, the two companies hope that by working together, they’ll be put in excellent position to take advantage of any legislation that might be passed in the United States – either at the federal level or on a state-by-state basis.

In fact, this process is already underway. Both 888 Holdings and WMS have already applied for licenses to operate online gambling sites in Nevada. Although neither company has yet had their application considered, it’s likely that state regulators will consider most applications over the next few months. The first online poker sites are expected to go live in early 2019.

Executives at 888 emphasized that the partnership would draw on the strengths of both companies.

“The combination of 888’s cutting edge online poker platform and WMS’ customer relationships, marketing and distribution capabilities provides the opportunity to build a substantial online presence,” said 888 CEO Brian Mattingley.

This isn’t the first time that 888 poker has looked to make a move across the pond. Last year, 888 made an agreement with Caesars Entertainment that would have the two companies partner in online poker ventures both around the world and in the USA.

According to PokerScout.com, 888 Poker is currently the fourth-largest online poker site in the world, trailing only PokerStars, Party Poker and the iPoker Network.

Continue Reading]]> 888pokerIf you have never thought about playing online poker at 888 before, now might be the time for that thought to enter your mind. Not only can 888Poker boast that they are a powerhouse in online poker (they won Poker Operator of the Year in 2011) but they are also a world brand that extends to much more than solely poker. Even if you are already a member on another online poker site, it is never too late to switch sides and with 888’s newest Welcome Bonus package there has never been a time better than now to make the change.

Newly depositing players on 888Poker can enjoy a welcome bonus that will see their initial deposit be doubled. Just imagine making your first deposit of $100 and then having $200 at your disposal to play cash games, tournaments, and sit n gos with. The way you receive your bonus money is quite simple actually, all you have to do is make a deposit and play normally. As you play at cash games and in tournaments you will accumulate Bonus Points and for every 100 Bonus Points that you bring in, $10 will be deposited right into your bankroll; it’s a really sweet deal. You will be able to track how many bonus points you have been earning with relative ease as well.

At most other online poker sites the welcome bonus might stop there, but not at 888. These guys will also include a ticket to the $100,000 First Depositors freeroll which pits you against other new members in order to try and grab a share of a $100k pot. You will also receive entry into a $1,000 Depositors freeroll and 7 tickets to $500 First Depositors freerolls. So not only does 888 give you money just for signing up, they give you plenty of additional chances to grow that money once you begin playing.

888 Sees Revenue Increase in 1st Quarter 2012 http://www.888pokerreview.org/888-sees-revenue-increase-in-1st-quarter-2012/ http://www.888pokerreview.org/888-sees-revenue-increase-in-1st-quarter-2012/#comments Fri, 27 Apr 2012 07:03:41 +0000 http://www.888pokerreview.org/?p=180 In the first quarter of last year, 888 was quite satisfied when they posted revenue that eclipsed the $75 million mark.

Continue Reading]]> 888 HoldingsIn the first quarter of last year, 888 was quite satisfied when they posted revenue that eclipsed the $75 million mark. A year later they are even happier with their overall performance as they posted revenues around the $94 million mark, about a 25% increase from this time last year. Their real money gaming sites, which include bingo, casino games, and of course, online poker saw a 23% increase in new player accounts over the past year, as of the end of March.

Of all their business ventures, their online poker segment was the one that saw the biggest increase in the first quarter this year. Poker revenue was up 88% with revenues of $21 million. A mark that is surprising considering the recently turbulent online poker industry worldwide. 888’s CEO offered a statement on the recent success, stating, “Our focused strategy has led to another excellent quarter, with ongoing strength in Poker driving March to the highest ever monthly revenues in the history of 888.”

The company plans on further increasing revenues through various investments and even expressed interest in expanding real money gaming operation in the US. Brian Mattingley stated his caution about entering the US market though, saying, “I’m very cautious on the US market. It will open. When it will open, nobody is sure. We want to concentrate more on territories where we know they are opening.”

So while the possibility of more real money online poker in the US continues to loom on the horizon, it is nothing more than speculation, as it has been for quite some time now. The reluctance to pass along confidence in the US market caused share prices for 888 to fall ever so slightly, at 1.55%. It is obviously good to see one of the best online poker sites in the industry continue to grow and expand, refuting the more commonly held belief that real money online poker is on the way out.

Continue Reading]]> FA Cup and 888PokerThe name of the event is the 888Poker FA Cup Final 4U and it will be held on the 29th of April. That means that you now have one week to think about entering the event and paying the $1,050 buy-in. The winner of the event not only gets tickets to the FA Cup Final in London, they also get a VIP box and tickets for 9 of their family and friends. The guests you bring for the May 5th match will be treated like VIPs and all food and drinks will be provided and paid for by 888Poker.

If you are wondering how you are going to get to the FA Cup Final, no need to worry because 888Poker will be providing you with $2,000 to cover travel expenses and accommodations. Of course, 888 will also be giving you and everyone with you 888-themed merchandise.

If you do not have, or are not willing to pay the $1,050 buy-in, there are satellites that are running which start at as little as $0.55 to play. All new sign-ups over the course of the next week will be given a spot into the FA Cup Qualifier which will be held on day before the Main Event.

This year’s FA Cup Final will feature Liverpool and Chelsea facing off against each other. This game is particularly enticing because while both Chelsea and Liverpool are two of the biggest teams in the world, they are both underperforming heavily this year. Chelsea currently sits in 6th place in the league table and Liverpool is currently in 8th. It is strange because you seldom find either of these teams outside the top 4 spots. Having these two teams in the FA Cup final means that they will be giving it all they have got because this is going to be both team’s only chance to bring home a trophy this year.

Sign up today by visiting 888 now and get your chance to watch the FA Cup on 888Poker.
