Support are nice people. It would be too harsh to call them friendly incompetents, but it can be a little difficult dealing with them. The problem is that they are the same staff that answer 888 queries, so sometimes, they just do n`t know about poker.
This is the poker wing of 888 (among the big boys of the online casino world). This is mostly a good thing, because it provides a steady flow of gamblers who just want to play that holdem thing with the money they won at blackjack.
There's a relatively small shark population (those who can put up with the software do pretty well), but generally, ABC poker puts you ahead of 75% of the other players here.
Trust me though, there are some truly awful players on 888. Mind you, 888 do have a promotion where the players who see the most showdowns in a given period win money, so there is some excuse (by the way - it's bad idea to play for that prize but a good idea to be at a table with people who are).
Why do you have to put up with the poker software? Still, it looks OK, does n`t eat my CPU resources, and has a good layout, so they got the important things.
Unfortunately, cashouts are slow. There's never any fear that they wo n`t arrive (888 has enough money that they could probably turn the whole of Gibraltar into a giant Scrooge McDuck swimming pool of dollars), it's just agonizing needing to wait 5 days (like I did once). It was even worse back in the day when you needed a $1000 deposit - we had to walk to school in bare feet.
888 is a pleasant poker site with a decent deposit bonus. The real attraction is the very loose players who basically just give their money to you.
888 also offer a you the chance to play without spending a dime. You get a free sign up bonus of $8 with no deposit required. There are also first depositor freerolls where you can win a share of $3500.
