A big player on the online poker scene since 2004, 888 Poker is an edgy and exciting poker site with plenty of thrills and glamour. As access is available for players in Kenya, 888 Poker is a particularly busy and buzzing poker site, with sharks and fishes swimming in from all corners of the globe. The site looks set to grow even further in the coming months as it begins to focus its attention on international markets.
Players with some strong poker experience will find 888 Poker a particularly good site for easy winnings, with plenty of soft competition heading over from the sportsbook section of the site.
888 Poker software is smooth and quick, offering great functionality as well as exceptional design features. The red and black theme is sharp and sophisticated, creating a high-class casino feel, while the interface is simple and makes the site easy to get accustomed to.
Players can customise the colour of felt on their tables and set up the lobby themselves to only show the games that they know they’re interested in playing. This clears out the excess clutter that some poker site lobbies suffer from.
Players who enjoy multi-tabling are well catered for on 888 Poker, with the software allowing for four tables to be played simultaneously, as well as three tables in the picture-in-picture view feature. The software doesn’t lag or begin to show glitches when more than one table is in operation, and it’s quick and simple to move between them.
