888 Poker is the fastest growing poker room in the world, and looks certain to lock up the number two spot in terms of poker traffic very soon.
888 have been around since the very early days of online poker under the guise of Pacific Poker, and if you’ve been around online poker a while you’ll remember the days when Pacific Poker was a huge site, despite their horrible software.
Recently, they decided to re-brand and the owners brought the poker brand under the 888 umbrella, completely overhauling their poker offering along the way, and the results have been really good.
They are pioneering a lot of new features in online poker such as webcam tables, and their dedicated Android poker app was eagerly awaited and one of the first on the market in early 2012.
If you want to download the app simply visit the 888 Poker mobile site and download the app (~10MB) from the page.
In order to install it, you’ll need to allow non-marketplace apps in your settings.
Once you have the app installed, open it up and it will prompt you to sign up to 888 Poker.
Filling out forms on mobiles and tablets is a bit of pain, but they’ve made it relatively simple with big, clear fields for all of your details as shown on the right, and they’ve kept the information that they request from you to a minimum.
From there, enter your username and password and you’ll be in the lobby ready to choose a game.
At the moment cash games and sit n go tournaments are supported, however 888 is improving the product all the time and higher stakes players as well as MTTs are expected to be catered for soon.
Currently fixed limit, pot limit and no limit Holdem games are available but Omaha is expected in the near future.
