A majority of the most elite online gaming providers look outside their company for software but a few have mastered software themselves, relying on their in-house developers and 888 leads the pack of these defectors. 888's developers have managed to keep up with the software juggernauts, providing elite software for all 888 products including their casino and poker offering 888 Poker.
Software and User Experience
888 Poker's in-house developers have created a crisp and highly functional poker offering which is easily customised to provide a one-of-a-kind user experience. Players can utilise helpful icons placed throughout the poker window to remind players it's their turn or of other pertinent info. Graphics are cutting-edge and gameplay with 3D graphics micks real-life poker tables. Lobbies are categorized by experience so players from beginners to experts can find the most appropriate room.
888 offers its poker product through a downloadable platform but recently added an Instant Play platform only available to Mac and Linux users. The downloadable version does allow direct access from a desktop icon but the Instant Play format permits gameplay from any Mac or Linx computer connected to the internet.
888 Poker offers Texas Hold'em, Omaha High, Omaha Hi-Low, Seven Card Stud, and Seven Card Stud High-Low. Players can also enjoy variations of these popular poker games including PokerCam (webcam poker), Teams Poker, 3D Poker and more. Players looking to avoid a limit can only turn to Texas Hold'em games, No-Limit is not offered through any other games.

888 Poker houses a specific page for the tournament lobbies. Satellite tournaments are also listed for players to know when they are to qualify. To make things simple, 888 Poker's tournament registration requires just one click. The 888 Poker tournaments are traditionally loose.
