Re: **The New and Official 888poker Players' Thread**

Is there an August reload bonus? I searched around but didn't come up with anything but I heard that there is often a $150 reload on a monthly basis.

Re: **The New and Official 888poker Players' Thread**

How about adding more turbo/non turbo MTT SnGs with a Stars like structure? 180man might be too optimistic but 90? 45?

Thankyou
The points system is roflcopters for any MTT / SNG player.

You'd be best off ignoring it, just like 888 do and have continued to do for 5+ years.

Site banner should just say...please donk off remaining BR in casino on way out tvym.

Re: **The New and Official 888poker Players' Thread**

if you rake 30K a year you get 27% rakeback, if you rake 150K a year you get 36%. If you rake 150K on pretty much any other site you will be gettign 60+%.

Looking into it more, at 25/50 and higher the table pays 3$ a hand, flat rate. I can't find any mention of no flop no drop, do you guys rake preflop?

No, but since you just gave them such a great idea, who knows what will happen.

Is there a way to turn off the IE pop-ups when starting 888?

God yes, this. Or at least make it popup using your default browser. The fact that it autostarts IE tilts me so hard.

888 is a big site , you should add some 100+$ tournaments in a peak traffic time. Major evening tournaments for 15-30$ it's too low.

also you must add function increase(decrease) bet amount using wheel mouse for 1/2 Big blinds. It's built-in in microgaming and full tilt software.

Re: **The New and Official 888poker Players' Thread**

I'm sick of typing somewhere and then all of sudden 888 makes the table the active table and i type whatever i am doing into chat.

Can 888 please fix this? I'm sure I'm not the only one. None of the "when it's my turn to play" options are checked.

I've stressed this with the brass. Will continue to do so.

A Mac/Ipad client is in the works. No timeline as of right now.

Most of the GTD tournaments have been increased since Black Friday and most have retained their increase.

As traffic continues to improve, I expect we'll continue to see improvements in the tourney guarantees.

I've heard that some other players are experiencing this problem as well. I really hope that your technical department is working on this problem, it's very tilting and costly bug.
What version are you on?

Sorry to be so elementary, but have you done a full uninstall and reinstall? I don't have this problem at all, but I can completely see how it would be very frustrating.

The next two updates are around the corner.

I'll pass along the suggestion. I wouldn't hold my breathe though, the $10/$20/ HU PLO sng's rarely run no?

Will definitely pass along the suggestion.

They tried it for a bit with 88 player sng's, but it was only $0.88c buy-ins. I think they were successful for the most part.

Question - would you want to see them at the top of the tourney lobby or keep them restricted to the SNG tab?

Have been making this argument for years as well. As soon as I hear anything in favour of the MTT/SNG player, I'll definitely let you guys know.

I believe I mentioned this in my last feedback report, so hopefully something in the next update(s).

They have the High Rollers every day, as well as the $20r. They tried some more expensive tourneys in the past for the Eastern Time Zone people (9:00pm EST), and they were good for awhile, but died out soon after.

That was a few years ago though, perhaps it's time to try again.

Re: **The New and Official 888poker Players' Thread**

Just dont get this site.

I deposited a few $50 for mtts, never cashed so never really bothered that much about it , they sent me email saying I have a free $8 if I play again, I had $4 left in there already so had $12 cashed mtt for nearly $400 went to cash out.....No you cannot sir you have to play a ridiculous amount of rake before you can, even though I deposited numerous times before they gave me a free life changing $8 ? So I ended up blowing $400 on a mad cash session because there was no way I was going to ever generate the ridiculous amount of rake they wanted before I could withdraw.

Have less than $1 in there now, if i deposit and win are they still going to bleat about the $8 free they gave me even though I deposited 50 times this amount ?

Plus support is the worst ever, Ipoker shines above 888.

Plus why does the cashier pop open every time I open client ?

No idea why your cashier pops up every time. Never heard of that before.

You should have been able to cash out $404 leaving the $8 in your account.

Only the bonus amount needs to be wagered 20x before it can be cashed out.

If you tried to cash out the entire $412, then you get this problem.

For some reason his account got locked and the support is saying he was chip dumping and his account will remain frozen and he wont get any funds. I know the guy and he is a HU regular on other sites for years, plays for living and stuff.. so basically he will never chip dump or do anything stupid. The support however refuses to unlock his account. My question is can you be of any assistance with this so i provide more info and data(names, accounts etc)?

180 turbo sngs are a good idea.I think they would need to be put at the top of the tourney lobby to get traffic tho

Re: **The New and Official 888poker Players' Thread**

Hey,
How about a 2+2 bonus or bonus code (perhaps via PM for regular feedback providers in this and the other previous thread, and for anyone who provides a good/useful/fun idea for the site)

Great that we can help make the site better, be even better if we go something in return for making a publicly listed company more money. Would seem fair yeah?

Even if its something with a playthru requirement, most of the people in this forum seem to play on the site. (Read: something is better than nothing)

Maybe some free "Status Points" added to our account to make getting the next level easier.

Reduce the rake, and also make the rewards faster, easier, better, especially for lower stakes players.

Perhaps a "double points" hour, day week

Add a new PLO tournament for during the daytime on the weekend for people who live in other parts of the world, given the current PLO tournament times have some significant gaps during the day in parts of the world. Oh and make them freezeouts with limited time to late register. Say $3 or $5 buyin with $50 or $100 Gntd. to see how it goes. There are already a majority of PLO tournaments with rebuys and add-ons.

Oh and nice work adding the PLO hi-low touraments a few weeks ago.
Might have wanted to tell people about that...

Cheers
PLOhi

I would have them in both if possible for maximum exposure, if not then probably the SnG tab. An MTT tab inside the SnG section would be good.

Re: **The New and Official 888poker Players' Thread**

Please add one or two mtts in peaktime a little higher than $ 22

I would prefer a nice $55 FO, but 44 or 33 would be nice too.
Now its the 55 on saturday and the 33 on Friday, but else we are stuck playing 22s or the highroller 109, something needs to come in between in my opinion

Hi. I have no connections with LuckyAce so I can't really help much. If LA support isn't yielding any results, you may want to go to e-mail operations@888poker.com and/or manager@888poker.com

Hopefully you can find some success there.

+1. Would be nice to have a bit more varied range for mtt buyins apart from the challenge series.

Re: **The New and Official 888poker Players' Thread**

Hey, to start I would like to say im impressed by the new software and look - But a few misses:

Quote:
Originally Posted by 888Rep View Post

Happens not just on note taking.

What I would like to do is play most of my tours on 888 and a few on other sites, but that is impossible for me because stacked tables popup over each other. They should of course popup when needed action, but if theres already one needed action and a second underneath that also needs action it pops up over the first, causing me to missclick on the second tour if I click at the time of the popup. With many stacked tables its a nightmare! They should queue up like on any other pokersite.
Therefore im only playing 5 888tours at a time and 1 slot with stacked stars tables.
This is imo a MAJOR flaw in the software and hope ur aware of it and fix it asap!

No rewards for MTT players
MTT players have a hard time clearing reload bonuses, which you dont have anyway.
The VIP system is a joke for a MTT player, I have a very hard time getting past bronze playing 10+ tours 20days a month, which doesnt do me any good if I do.
my.888 poker leaderboard is useless.
What would be nice is a MTT leaderboard, guaranteeing x thousand $, 1-50 ish would get money.

SNGs would be in time instead of turns.

http://888poker.com/poker-promotions...r-leaderboard/
is this a new leaderboard in the works or the my.888 leaderboard? cant see the page for some reason.

Just my hopes for the near future...
