The last few years have not been so great for land-based casinos with even the mighty Las Vegas seeing revenues falling. One of the reasons for this has been the phenomenal growth of online gaming – and now even this has moved on with more and more people choosing the ultra-convenient option of mobile play.
Naturally online casinos have been quick to jump onto this trend by producing apps to make the mobile experience as smooth and friction-free as possible. Among them is 888poker, one of the most respected names in the field, not least for their sponsorship of the 2016 World Series of Poker.
It’s everything you’d expect from the brand being easy to download and slick to use – plus it’s also readily available from the usual apps stores as well as direct from the 888poker website.
Once you’ve registered you’ll become eligible for a number of pretty generous bonuses. Best of all you’ll be able to use some straight away. Although, having said this, it might be a good idea to try out the free play option first just to get the feel of the play without risking any cash on it.
There’s an extensive use of slider controls which allow you to select everything from the level of buy-in to the number of players that you want to compete against plus, of course, the type of game that you want to play – cash, sit & go or tournament.
Many people are attracted to the site, and the app, by the exclusive games that it features so it’s worth taking a little time to tell you about these too. First up there’s BLAST Sit & Go. Created in response to the increasing demand for games that are quick to play, this has the added advantage of giving you the chance to play for a prize pot of up to 10,000 times the buy-in amount. It’s a four player game against the clock and, while it may be fast and furious, it’ll also give you plenty of opportunities to bluff your way to a win.
Another game for speed lovers is SNAP Poker in which you’re dealt a new hand as soon as you fold. What’s more it’s available in both cash game and tournament modes.
There’s also the new Pokercam format which is the nearest you’ll get to a live game from your mobile device as you take on opponents face to face in real time.
Together these make three very good reasons to make 888poker your mobile app of choice. And when you add them to all the other features that have been integrated into this method of play it should certainly be at the top of your list to download.
