888 Poker Introduces $100K Sunday Challenge

Last Updated on

There is a brand new promotion over at 888 Poker, taking place every Sunday from now on, each time offering $100,000 in guaranteed cash prizes.

The concept of the Sunday Challenge is not entirely new to 888 Poker, which until recently hosted a $50,000 challenge every Sunday. The only difference is, as of now, if the face of a growing player base (currently standing at over 8.2 million players), 888Poker has doubled the guaranteed prize pool for that event.

The 888 Poker $100K Sunday Challenge takes place every Sunday at 19:35 GMT for a buy-in of $75 + $5 (the same buy-in, incidentally, as for the event’s predecessor: the $50K Sunday Challenge).

Speaking of doubling prizes, don’t forget 888 Poker’s Double Up array of promotions, from the double-sized deposit bonus to double the number of tournaments, promotions, and bonuses in general.

The EGR (eGaming Review) Awards gave 888 Poker the prize for Socially Responsible Operator of the Year. 888 Poker is listed on the London Stock Exchange, certified by eCOGRA, TRUSTe, McAfee and other leading Internet authorities, and processes hundreds of thousands of financial transactions securely each and every month.

888 Poker is the site that introduced PokerCam tables where you can view your opponents in real time, the 8-cent tournament, where you can win a share of $2,500 up to $1,000 for just $0.08, and win seats into exclusive freeroll tournaments worth thousands of dollars in cash prizes just for playing at 888 Poker on two or more days of any given week.

888 Poker is Doubling Major Tournament GTD Prizepools

Last Updated on

888 PokerOver the past year 888poker, formerly Pacific Poker, has built new state-of-the art software, launched exclusive PokerCam table technology, released an innovative TV campaign featuring Shane Warne and completely revamped their promotions and offers, including free $8 registration bonus for new customers.

888poker’s continued commitment to the new “we play different” strategy and focus on customer safety and experience is gaining momentum with online poker players and has brought the site a rapid 45% increase in liquidity.

More long term plans also show to be paying off for the poker network. As the USA market continues to show signs of legalization and licensing for online gaming, 888 has made several strategic moves and partnerships to ensure the best position for entry into the major market. The company’s decision to leave the USA online poker market immediately after the passing of the 2006 UIGEA and its continued focus on safe and legal operations, has opened several doors for 888. One very positive move has been the recent approval from the Nevada Gaming Commission to work with USA operator, Caesars Interactive, the online subsidiary of Caesars Entertainment Corporation. As other major sites begin to struggle with the changing landscape in online gaming, 888 remains in a  prime position.

To keep up with the growth, 888poker has doubled  their major guaranteed tournaments including the Sunday Challenge which is now a staggering $100,000 guarantee. Players can take advantage of these huge guarantee tournaments and other promotions such as, new Team Poker Tournaments (win money as part of a team and as an individual) and  Play More Win More (the more you play, the more big $$ guaranteed freeroll tickets you receive).

Players can also try a more social online poker experience when they play the new PokerCam tables.  PokerCam tables use webcam technology to bring you a face to face interaction with other players. You can catch bad bluffs, meet new friends and maybe find a new crush all while playing poker.

For information about 888poker’s software, interactive community, online store, new innovations, such as, PokerCam tables, and constantly updated promotions, go to www.888poker.com.

With over 5 million registered users and winner of Socially Responsible Operator of the Year 2010, EGR Awards, 888 is a gaming company you can trust.

Existing 888 Poker Players can now take advantage of a 100% up to $150 reload bonus by using deposit code APRIL150.

888 Poker Launches “pokercam” Tables

Last Updated on

888 Poker888 Poker, one of the world’s most popular gaming entertainment companies, has launched a groundbreaking “pokercam” option for 888 Poker, innovating to again provide players with something that they have not experienced before.

The poker cam tables, powered by ooVoo, a leading video communication service provider with a best-in-class mobile video chat solution, will be available from the main lobby and will allow players to see their opponents while playing a Texas Hold’em Cash game.

The option builds on the strong social aspects of the 888 poker rooms, which already lead their way in the use of personalised avatars providing an immerse social experience in which players can interact together.

The addition of the “Teams Tournament” feature adds a further dimension to 888’s social play. This innovative type of tournament gives players the option of joining a virtual team in a regular tournament format. However, in addition to the traditional prize-pool, players score points for their team, and a portion of the prize is allocated to all of the players that belong to the winning team. Players can group together to face off as rival football teams or cities, adding an emotional level to the play, with links to major social networking sites letting people know when like-minded people have joined a tournament.

As well as these innovations in the game play, the “late registration” option means that there is always a tournament to join, even at off-peak times. An improved lobby also gives a better user experience, and allows quick and easy entry to tables.
The new offer builds on the enormously successful launch of Poker 6 in June 2010, which overhauled the Poker platform and provided an intuitive usability that targeted the casual player. The platform also allowed players to play Poker in 3D.

Hili Shakked, Director of Poker Offering, 888holdings, said:

“Through the addition of video streams to our hugely successful Poker 6 we are offering an even more personal, inclusive, and social environment. On top of this, the chance to play as part of a team in the Team Tournaments, provides a competitive edge that allows players to meet and play with other like-minded people.”
