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 888poker , my game right now is to win from 888 freerolls then hit the cash games and finally take the profit to pokerstars 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
I never had any problems with cash outs from 888 and money won free rolls doesn't have too wagered x amount of times always a good promotion on this site had some deep runs with the Dream Ticket Free rolls GL

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!

I havent heard a single bad thing about 888poker 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.
We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused and would like to give you 5 tickets to our $5,000 Special Sunday Freeroll series, which we created exclusively for our players who have been affected by the disruption. The Freerolls will run as follows:

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...
