Features of the new software
While 888Poker has only redesigned the desktop PC client tables, a brand-new application has been launched for mobile devices. In many ways, it follows the same path that partypoker implemented in early 2020.
888Poker highlighted the following innovations in its mobile app:
- Portrait mode (vertical orientation of the tables);
- Multi-tabling support (mini-windows on top of any table to switch between games);
- New avatars emoji chat and;
- New lobby (now there is a separate tap for each format or stake);
- New hand replayer;
- Accessibility to all games from the main lobby.
All this in a modern and bright style, which the room promoted in a video:
Also, several unique options were added to the mobile client;
- Gift Drops — random prizes at the tables;
- Winner Spinner — a wheel that players can spin for free )2 times a day).
Why is the mobile app so important to 888Poker?
According to the room, 60% of all its users use smartphones to play, and the old mobile client was very outdated. Therefore, it is quite logical that 888Poker has deployed its new Poker8 engine for gadgets.
The "Made to Play" promotion was launched to promote the new mobile client, with $1,000,000 in freerolls and happy hours.
Guy Cohen, Head of B2C at 888Holdings, said:
"Made To Play, emphasises that our player's enjoyment is our number one priority. Poker is a pastime, a passion and a community for our players; we have built a platform that puts them at the heart."
The launch of this platform at the end of the year is not a coincidence. We will learn how the public reacts to the new mobile client in the coming months.
The site has been able to stay in the TOP10 in the post-quarantine world. It shares the 8-9 position with Winning Poker Network, averaging 950 cash players per week.
Compared to the data for January this year, the number of games has increased. The number of tables (and connections for fast-fold poker) now (early November 2020) is as follows:
|Stake / Format||6-max||9-max||Snap (Connections)|
