888poker has an app for whichever device you use, but this article is all about the PC app.

The Windows and Mac 888poker apps are the best way to play for PC users. You can open lots of different tables, arrange them on your screen as you like, and keep track of the action without switching back and forth. There’s also the chance to misclick on mobile devices with an accidental press or a faulty touchscreen, but you can be precise when you make actions on a PC app. The internet connection is often stronger on a PC as well.

Right now, you can use 888poker’s dedicated app for real money games on Windows and Mac computers. Also, 888poker has a browser app if you need to play without any download.

888poker’s PC app

888poker is one of the biggest online poker sites, but do they have a good PC application?

The most recent update for the 888poker PC app looks great and loads quickly. The theme of the lobby is dark, with a design that anyone can navigate in the first few minutes. All of the main poker games are on the left, and clicking one will bring that format up on the main screen. You can easily get to your rewards and challenges here too.

What about the poker tables?

Customize your table, background, and cards

The table designs, cards, and avatars are customizable, and arranged in a spacious layout. There’s a chat window for communication with the table (after bad beats) and some other small buttons for adding new tables, replaying the hand history, and sitting out.

Animations for dealing, calling, and other actions move smoothly, and this app isn’t prone to crashes. It’s just as stable as other leading poker rooms.

If you want more reactions and throwable items, 888poker isn’t going to satisfy you. They offer a simple online poker experience with everything players need, and not many distractions.

Some of our members who downloaded 888poker had this to say about the PC app:

“Two2Van” gave 5 stars, saying, “888 has good software and, more importantly, stable software. Not all poker rooms can boast that.”

“HolyRave” gave 5 stars and said 888poker isthe best room for MTT beginners due to freerolls. there are more freerolls here than anywhere else. at the lowest buy-ins, the vast majority of players are weak. the software I would rather praise than criticize, but in general, it's for amateurs.

HolyRave is partially right; there are many freerolls on 888poker, but actually, partypoker has way more than 888. Players can enter one every single hour and the prizes range from $50 to $200.

With their 4-star review, “Tepem1” said, Good, reliable room. A lot of freerolls. Minus in the mobile version you can't play several tables.”

“happyrainbow” gave 888poker 4 stars, saying, “Not exactly lame software as the old client, the ability to use HUD, and the field is not bad. For beginners a huge number of freerolls.”

We found a report about one user having problems with two-factor authentication, though it was posted in July 2021. Users have the option to set up stronger security if they choose, which shouldn’t be a problem if you have access to the authentication methods.

We already made a step-by-step guide to help you register for 888poker, but here’s a short version. The process is identical for Windows and Mac systems.

Here are the steps:

  1. Start by going directly to 888poker to register.
  2. Fill out 3 sections of information and click on Register.
  3. Click on the blue Download button.
  4. Check your inbox for an 888poker confirmation email.

You should have two things now; an 888poker installation file in your Download folder and an email from 888poker about your No-Deposit Bonus.

Claim your bonus and install the PC app. After a few minutes, you’ll be ready to hit the tables.

Claim your bonus of up to $88

Your first deposit at 888poker comes with a bonus, as long as you add $10 or more to your account.

888poker will match your deposit dollar for dollar, up to $400 at the most. That means, depositing $10 gets you $10 in bonus money.

Here are the steps:

  1. Head to the cashier (yellow Deposit button in the top right corner) and select the deposit option you want to use.
  2. Look for the words, “Got a promotion code?” and click on that.
  3. Enter “Welcome100” and complete your deposit.

Although it’s nice to get your deposit matched, the money doesn’t get unlocked to you right away. Instead of playing to unlock your cash, a free play bonus will just send real money rewards or tournament tickets straight into your account (fully unlocked and ready to use).

PokerStars, Partypoker, and GGPoker all have free play bonuses, giving you rewards right away – instead of trickling them into your account.

There’s a way to play for PC users who don’t want to download. You just need to visit 888poker.com and find the button that says Play in Browser (beside Download)

You will notice that the layout in the lobby is slightly different, but apart from that, nothing changes. It’s the same games and an almost identical experience.

You can’t play poker for free on the web version of 888’s software, but that won’t affect most players.
