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

Hello,

I recently got off the phone with support, but it seems a bit too silly to believe. Is it really so that when I deposit with Paysafecard, my money is unavailable unless I use another payment method as well?

I assume the people at 888 are aware that when people deposit to a site, they do that with the prospect of possibly withdrawing money, and I assume they're also aware of the fact that some countries have severe restrictions on how they're able to deposit? (Would appreciate an answer more honest than "We have a policy to make withdrawals through the same method you deposited (...)", as that's clearly not true, and it's also quite possible to set up withdrawals through a Paysafe-account, as other casinos and poker sites have shown.)

Hi,

I have had trouble with the 888 software since the latest update. All graphics blurry and huge.

- I adressed that in an earlier post.
- I contacted the 888 Live support, they couldnt help me.
- I already sent TWO E-mails to mvp@888poker.com (my account manager is Laura)
My Username is donkeyqong22.

I still haven't received any help or answer yet (its been 5 days since I sent the latest email). It's a pity, since I would like to play and deposit on 888, but I cant play due to the software.

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

I was enjoying the plo 8 tournaments of series yesterday (okay not so much, literally bubbled 3 times the 109 satellite) but enjoyed playing.
Had no money upfront so i deposited a little and live chat popped up and asked if i want a bonus and how much planned to deposit. I replied and they offered me a igoodies tournament ticket for double that amount i planned to deposit. Was fine with that offer but not overwhelmed so denied and just deposited what i had in mind.
After bubbling all the 109plo 8 satellits i wanted to reload and just play the tournament. So i got to the live chat again to get at least this ticket (which i was not even so interested in). They asked again how much i wanna deposit and offered me the same ticket for now 3 times the amont they mentioned few hours before which was surprisingly again more the amount i mentioned to deposit. I was so tilited that i just throw my money to stars...

Table replays (not just lobbies) of high multiplier BLAST SNGs accessible from the observation ribbon after the tourneys finish would be also nice. Far not everyone is able to witness such an SNG live, and seeing nothing more than their lobbies after they finish isn't as exciting.

I had to make account now on this forum since a friend inform of this.

First thing, this is just major lie. I am sitting fast because I am playing 2-3 tables usually and I keep other tables 3 tables open so when new players come I sit fast, without scripts or anything. I dont need them and most often I dont even sit at such a good spot because I cant watch everything. And I do encourage you to make that video and post it since i really wish to see how am I scripting.

Second, and this is meant only for you, learn to play better and then perhaps you wont be so frustrated to falsely accuse people of smth they didnt do.

Hello,

On day 10 of the $7,500,000 XL Inferno championships, we saw a whopping $50,000 raised for Charity during the ‘Chip-in’ events.
We were thrilled to see players participating, and ‘chipping-in’ for a very worthy cause!

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

In 2017, a crack poker unit is sent to Las Vegas by an online poker site for plays they did commit.
These men and women promptly defy the odds to the make the final table. This is “The 8-Team”.

Big changes are in store for the 2017 World Series of Poker, which will once again be sponsored by 888poker.
Yesterday, WSOP officials revealed both a new television deal and the retirement of the Main Event November Nine, instead opting to play it out in July.
Following in their footsteps of big announcements, we’re happy to reveal “The 8-Team”.

We’ve managed to build five amazing teams, each from a different country and featuring a team captain, wing man, and a qualifier.
The teams – which are comprised of the UK, Germany, Canada, Brazil and Sweden – will all participate in the 2017 WSOP Main Event.
The qualifier that does the best (determined by who reaches the highest spot in the tournament out of the 5 tram qualifiers) will win a 2018 WSOP ME Package.

sure party has 40% rakeback, but 888 occasionally gives away free $25 casino bonuses where the max you can win is $25. hard to say which is better.

I was making a general inquiry about the fact that money made from a deposit through Paysafecard is apparently held hostage until one can come up with a deposit with an alternative method of payment. My user name isn't really relevant in that regard.

After getting off the phone with your "support" and posting here, I elegantly tilted away the fairly valueless money I had on my account, so I could sleep calmly knowing that I won't ever have to contact support again, as 888 isn't a site I need to come back to. I do however think it's in the poker public's interest to know about this major flaw in the way you handle their money.

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

Hello,

From May 28 through June 1, ARIA will once again play host to Poker Central’s 3rd Annual Super High Roller Bowl (SHRB), a tournament that earlier this year won “Event of the Year” at the American Poker Awards.

For the second year in a row, 888poker will not only serve as an official sponsor of the tournament, but we will see one of our own, 888poker Ambassador Dominik Nitsche, test his skills against some of the best poker players in the world.

Kara Scott, Nitsche’s fellow 888poker Ambassador and hostess of the SHRB, recently spoke to Nitsche about this year’s event.

“I’m very excited to play; it’s a lot of fun,” Nitsche told Scott. “Basically, it’s just a home game of all our friends.
Everyone knows each other. The atmosphere is probably going to be quite relaxed at first, but I can imagine it getting quite tense at the end simply because it’s a $300,000 buy-in, and that’s a lot of money.”

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

I have around 1250 888 gold tokens. Since 888 has no rakeback, do most of you just order the cash bonus? The biggest one seems to be only $10 and cost 1000 gold tokens. Do most of you just order a bunch of these assuming you have a lot of gold coins?


Also these have rollover as well or not? I checked the website and it mentions rollover that is 3.5 points you need for every $1 in cash bonus. So that means you need to earn 35 points for every $10 cash bonus you redeem?

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

I also see you could buy tournament tickets such as 900 points gets you 3 of those $3 tourney tickets and 1 $1 ticket. But these dont have rollover besides using each of them?


If thats the case, wouldnt it make sense to just get these instead of a $10 cash bonus? How much rake in tournament fees you have to pay assuming you purchase a $10 cash bonus? 35 points would be about $17.50 rake?


If this is the case, i dont know why anyone would get the cash bonus as oppose to tournament tickets unless im missing something?
