After months of testing and feedback from players, 888poker are set to launch a brand new mobile app that puts the player experience first and aims to maximize the enjoyment of its playing community.
PokerNews has been given early access to the new online poker mobile app to get a sneak peek at what changes are in store.
Get ready for the launch of the app, and be sure to download it for iOS or Android!
Made to Play
One of the first things we noticed as we opened up tables to play on the 888poker mobile app was the multi-table option. With this, we were able to enjoy up to four tables at once, and by playing with one hand you can swipe easily from each of them.
You can easily access all areas of your poker account, including your bonuses, gifts and rewards, as well as checking your 888 Club balance and any incomplete challenges.
The settings allow you to change nearly every aspect of their playing experience. You can quickly change the settings of four-color decks, autofocus on tables awaiting your action, auto rebuy and addon or emojis display with just a couple of taps, instead of it being hidden behind endless menus.
Emoji display is also an important aspect of the app, with no chat allowed just emoji faces in order to communicate with your tablemates. We certainly enjoyed using them to taunt our opponents, or congratulate them on a well-played hand.
Portrait Mode Makes One-Handed Play a Breeze
The lobby of the new 888poker mobile app showcases all the different types of tournament you can play on the app. Whether it’s SNAP, Sit & Gos, Cash Games or Tournaments you will be able to find what you’re looking for at a single glance.
We found navigating through the tournament lobby quick and easy, with simple filters for tournament buy-in and category enabling us to find the perfect tournament.
What’s even more useful is the ability to swipe between poker, casino and sport seamlessly. The new app has the benefit of having all 888poker’s products embedded within one single app.
There are also helpful links to Casino and Sport so you can keep track of all your 888 accounts in one place.

What’s more players get to see 888poker’s exciting jackpot Sit & Go BLAST take center stage, offering players a top prize of $1,000,000!
When we sat to play our first BLAST, we were met with a spinning wheel that showed us just how close we were to winning a crazy seven-figure payout! Once the first-place prize money is guaranteed, the lighting of the table changes, allowing players to see at a glance what’s up top.
