Contact live support to change your wallet in USD because if you are from EU, they think it is more convenient for you to have your main wallet in EUR while there are $4 Rake tables


So holding on to the rake, seriously it is pretty high :/

Also the jackpot feature thing should be tweaked in the sense of PartyPoker style (no voluntary opt-in but extra rake taken out )

If you can send me the screenshot of the popop (or just post it and i'll copy it), that'd be great.
This only happened "yesterday", but happened 3 times within a few hours.
I have sent the screenshot to 888 via email.

Thanks for looking into this. If you need more info let me know.
Cheers

How can I find out if I have a wallet in EUR? My balance shows in USD.

I had the same issue, in my case I had set my preferred currency to £ when I opened my account. At the time I was a total Noob, knew nothing about poker, let alone rakeback or moneybookers. Preferred currency works only for deposits /withd. , your balance remains in $.

Once I became a modest winning player and started moving $ around different sites through MB this issue came up with 888.

Just open the live chat and tell them you need your preferred currency set to US$ (they did sort it out for me ). Be prepared to answer a few basic questions like your zip code and problem solved. If for whatever reason the live chat person says they cannot do that for you tell them that you know for sure they can.

888rep,

Can you comebine promotion code 8882p2 with other active bonuses that is in the processing to be cleared? Will it just go back in the line until you have completed the current bonus?

Correct. I've been told if you stack '8882p2' with another deposit code, the 8882p2 code will kick in after you finish the first one.

Any possibility of making security keys available?

At the moment I feel obliged to withdraw when I reach a certain amount as the security is pretty awful.

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

How long do withdrawals usually take on 888poker. I am new to the site, only been playing for about 2 weeks. I have run up my balance and initiated a withdrawal on thursday, no response yet from 888. Is this normal? I don't think I will continue with this site if they arent better at communicating with players and processing withdrawals.

Anyone with experience with the cashier, please tell of your dealings with them

I guess I have been spoiled by pokerstars where everything is instant. I have had bad luck with ****ty cashiers on other sites, hope 888 isnt the same.

wow, those wait times are horrible. I guess its on to the next site, those numbers are totally unacceptable, as if the $4 rake wasnt bad enough.

There is a 3-day hold policy where you can cancel your cashout during that time.

Some people don't like it.

Some people don't care.

Some people like it very much and feel it is a major contributor to the "fish" factor on the site.

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

Hey Rep,

I got some suggestions:

** Display Fast or Normal ''tag'' on top of the table. Now you see Guaiba NLH $3/6$ , maybe you can put ''normal'' or ''fast'' after that since I cannot see immediately which tables I play on are normal and which one are fast. This ofcourse goes hand in hand with timebanks

** global timebanks on every table. for fast do 8 seconds timebank or something

** Do something about those jackpot tables. 888 knows it attracts fish and 888 knows how to increase the jackpot size so more fish will join: rake 50c extra from the table instead of 50c voluntarily bet.

It is like the Organ Donor system in Spain vs Greece. in Belgium you are automatically opted in this system and you have to put effort in opting OUT resulting in 34 donors per million inhabitants

Greece has Opt in resulting in only six donors.


most important suggestion
**
Password security!! I stressed this long time already but 8 digits EXACTLY and only numbers/alphabet?? really ??? come on

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

as far as I can see:

new status plate
"my tournaments" also in my profile
no more info about our pending bonus in "my bonuses"
in settings you can set up webcam/microphone
there's a very useful "poker tips" under beginners

Yeah, just saw it. Finally I can watch a hand that's more than 5 sec in the past.

Nice one!

I second this. I cannot fathom the logic behind restricting passwords to being only a specific length. This absolutely has to be changed!

Is it just me, or are the waiting lists not working atm? There are no waiting lists on any table, and when I try to join one I get "You are not on the waiting list for this table"

Does the conversion rate for points ever increase from 1c a point as your VIP increases or does it always remain the same?
