Before being rebranded as 888Poker, this online poker room was known as Pacific Poker. This site is basically the online poker extension of the world's largest online casino, Casino-On-Net, which means that there are loads of casino gamblers drifting over from the online casino tables to give the poker tables a try. These guys make for juicy competition, and 888 Poker is no exception in this respect.
With the rebranding came the overhauling of the software. Known as Poker 6, 888 Poker's software is quite an amazing package: it offers over 100 new features, among which improved searching, improved multi tabling, a cashier which can be accessed at a mouse-click at all times and integrated casino games.
The 3D aspect of the tables is an attractive feature as well. The hand histories offered by the software can be downloaded and later analyzed with various poker hand analysis tools, most of which are indeed compatible with the file format generated by the software.
Players can create password protected SnGs too, which allow them to put together a home poker-like game with their friends.
To get the most out of the 888 Poker software, it is recommended that players download the full version. For those using different operating systems though, it has been made available in a no-download version as well.
Traffic volumes are decent at the site. In peak hours, one will find about 8,000 players at the tournament tables and 2,000 players engaged in cash games.
888Poker have always had extremely juicy games going. Even at the $15/$30 tables, flops viewed percentages were around 85%, which needless to say is more than impressive. These days, play has tightened up a bit, but the flops viewed percentages are still around the 65-70% mark. If one can't take advantage of that, he/she probably shouldn't aim to make money playing poker online.
The Omaha Hi/Lo tables offer excellent money-making opportunities for experienced players too.
