They are long in business, have a sports book and a casino, too. So this is one of the bigger players in the online marktet. If they are not legitimate, you will struggle to find someone who is.

well to answer your question : yes i do trust them .. Pokerstars and 888 are the most worthy of our trust i think
maybe because i am making money from 888 poker , my game right now is to win from 888 freerolls then hit the cash games and finally take the profit to pokerstars Big Smile
they had this problem recently , i got disconnected during a game yesterday but after 15 min of trying to reconnect i was able to get back
and i don't know the reasons but i am assuming that they are getting unbelievable traffic , i honestly didn't see tournaments got full so fast like their Dream freerolls do
just be patient , i am sure they are looking into it because many people have been experiencing this

You will never struggle to find a bookie or poker site which will be glad to take your money but it might be just a random thing and if not you better stay away from 888 as in the long run you will get tilted and have the chance to lose lots of money due to that and all the bad mojos that goes with disconnected play.

Anyway if you want to play poker, pokerstars the best site and for gambling maybe betfair exchange but you must have accounts in all of them for gambling as you need to take advantage of the best odds!

888 is the old classic poker and casino long before its been name as pacific poker and casino on net if yur playin since 2003 were u can cashout tru visa in just a day, pokerstar just followed along its step on poker making its wide coverage of players with a good strategy promotion and huge prices suddenly its fulltilt and so on etc,but for me i really trust the older pokersites 888 e.ven due pokerstar is my fav.software poker ....

I havent heard a single bad thing about 888 poker so far Neither here or somewhere else.
So even if i dont play there, i believe you can trust them.
The thing with disconnection could be random and they give out the message about
routine maintenance.

888 is fine.

They have had issues recently and the updates on sunday night were forced and certainly not planned.

Are they trustworthy? IMO yes, I have played there for a long time.

Are they having major disconnection problems? Yes. According to some people, it seems to have started when they expanded into the New Jersey market.

Thumbs Up 888 is Legitimate and I trust them... there's plenty of poker games, to all kinds of bankrolls...

the only problem to me is that their support is very weak and it takes ages to get a simple answer... but the cashouts are simple and pretty fast!

In my opinion 888 is the best alternative to Pokerstars, since the Full Tilt purchase.

If 888 payed more attention to how their software ran and less to the gimmick of webcam poker they might not have as many problems,waste of time and losing them punters that they really cant afford to lose... Sad Sad Sad
