888 Poker History

888 Poker is run by 888 Holdings which also operates one of the largest and oldest internet casinos, Casino on Net, having been in existence since 1997. Then came 888 Poker, which has taken the world of online poker by storm. They currently have over five million registered poker players and a slew of awards, including the 2011 EGR awards for Best Poker Operator and Socially Responsible Operator of the Year. We cannot see the future, but if the past is any indication, 888 Poker seems destined to remain on top for a long time.

888 Poker Player Traffic 7.5/10

The site has grown significantly in the last few years, especially in the number of tournament players. Thousands of players can be found online at any one time, which makes it one of the busiest poker rooms on the internet today. Even in the "off" hours, they still manage to have player traffic numbers in the four-figures, so players in all time zones can be sure that they will be able to enjoy 888 Poker. What makes these figures even more impressive, though, is the quality of players that flock to 888 Poker.

888Poker.com Quality of Players 9.5/10

Many of the players at 888 Poker are weak, making it an excellent site to play at. The reason there are so many bad players is probably due to the fact that 888 Poker is connected to 888 Casino. Your player account lets you take full advantage of bother services, so it's really no surprise that there are many casino players that find their way over to the poker tables. They are just looking for a quick poker bet, but ultimately they have no idea what they are doing, and their easy money makes 888 a great place for experienced players that keep an eye out for them.
