Probably...the best online poker site.. ever.
Let’s start with the most important part of any poker site,
All poker site lobbies shall be the same layout. It will be the law, and all poker site lobbies will be the same as 888. In the corner will be today’s exchange rate of the currency of your choice, you will not have a rate for deposit and a second rate for withdrawal. If there are links to casino or betting platforms then I should be able to disconnect them and only reconnect after contacting support. Any bonus statistic shall be displayed next to my balance. There will be no spiny thing with tickets to games I don’t historically play; all prizes will be for games I have a good history of. If I have no history then tickets will be defaulted to free roll games until I have such history.
We will be having normal games, no snap or zoom or rush or blast. We are here to play the game of poker; the game most of us saw on TV and thought that game looks so easy let’s give it a whirl. All sit and go and tournament games will have a rake of 10%. Some double or nothing games at 888 have a rake of 16%!!!!!!!! Sit and gos will be 10 seat with blind increases after 10 hands, there will be no antes in sit and gos. Minimum cash in any multi table game will be at least double the buy in. any satellite game will have a good starting stack and a proper blind structure; there will be no 1000 starting chip stack and 5 minute blinds. You will only be allowed to play a cam game if you have a cam switched on and clearly showing your face, if you play a single hand with your face obscured you will be kicked from the game and your chips evenly spread through the rest of the field. Late registration to any multi table game will be no longer than 30 minutes. The table chat box will only be in English, there will be an auto translate feature for players who English is not their first language. Writing swear words as “fu ck off “ or questioning my mother’s/sister’s sexual habits will see an instant kick from the game we will have a zero tolerance of trolls, stick to twitter. Table observers will not be allowed to chat but they will have access to pre-loaded statements like well-played, nice hand, good luck.
Play 100 sit and gos in a month and get one ticket equivalent to the average buy in for a game of your choice. Play 50 multi table games and get a ticket equivalent to 1.5 times your average buy in for a game of your choice. Tickets will have no expiry date. Play 50 my 888 community games over the year and get invited to the (used to be ) annual get together.
Odds and ends
There will be no 3rd part software allowed, no holdem manager or poker tracker. If you can’t use it in a casino you can’t use it online.
