888 Poker

What we today know as 888Poker was launched back in 2002, but under the name Paficic Poker. 888 Poker offers poker directly in your browser as well as in a downloadable poker client.

Poker is owned by 888 Holdings, a company that also owns 888.com, 888 Games, 888 Sport, 888 Ladies, Casino-on-Net and Reef Club Casino. A subsidiary named Cassava Enterprises is responsible for running 888 Poker. This company is based in Gibraltar in Europe and that's also where the gambling license is from.

888 Poker bonus

Your first deposit to 888 Poker is matched by 100% up to $400. You will also be given free entrance to a new member's tournament with a $1 000 prize pot, and to seven similar tournaments that each have a prize pot of $500.

Your match bonus is not deposited into your account right away; you need to free it by playing for real money at 888. 100 bonus points is enough to release $10 of your welcome bonus. Most poker sites will only give you this type of points for playing poker, but 888 will give you points for both poker and casino games.

The 888 Poker referral bonus is $50 for you and $25 for the friend you referred. The poker bonuses are paid out once your friend has gathered 250 status points. (Your friend will of course also get the regular welcome bonus.)

You can get extra bonus money from the VIP Club. Both poker and casino play is used to determine your level and your available perks in the VIP Club.
