New look and feel

The poker tables have had a redesign, including 3D tables and avatars, bigger cards and enhanced animation sequences.

Game clarity

To improve your player experience, we’ve shifted a few things around to focus more on what matters to YOU during the game. We’ve cleaned up the table background to reduce any unnecessary fuss or visual distractions and players’ actions are now more clearly displayed on the table.

Simplified dialog boxes

The buy-in and rebuy dialog boxes now enable you to select your preferred amount from pre-defined options. This makes your transition back to your game much smoother.

Bet slider buttons

Personalise your bet slider buttons in “settings.” Configure the bet slider to display the exact values you want at your finger-tips.

In order to customize the default bet slider buttons, go to the main lobby and select:

⇨ Settings

⇨ Bet slider

Change Felt Colour

Choose from among 8 table colours to suite your personal preferences and strategies. Just right click on the table felt and pick your colour.

Minimised table redesign

Minimising your screen now gives you a clutter-free display of the table, with only the essential elements remaining in view. Avatars, the chat function and casino button will be hidden in the minimised state, so that you can enjoy a clear view of your game.

Smart table tiling

Now when you view multiple tables at the same time, they’ll be tiled in a way that you’ll find easy to manage and navigate. If you’ve got 4 tables or less, they’ll be displayed in regular mode. Over 4 tables will change the display to the minimised table mode.

No-nonsense chat

The chat feature has been repositioned to a more comfortable location on the screen. To help you stay focused on your game, we’ve removed stats and dealer messages, allowing for clear, fuss-free chat between players.

Final table graphics

In multi-table tournaments, to get you geared up for your victory at the final table, the design will change to add some extra drama and a cool money stack graphic as you reach the heads-up stage of your game.

Equity display

When there is an all-in and a call before the river, you’ll see the equity displayed on the table (with an extra ‘drama effect’ at the final table stage). However, if you prefer not to see it, you can customise your display and hide the equity in the ‘Game settings’ tab.

Sit out menu

All sit out options are neatly displayed together in one area. A new icon bar indicating your sit out status has been added to make sure you’re aware of it whilst multi-tabling. If you’re sitting out of a tournament, a red dot will appear on the middle icon. If you’re sitting out of any other game, the middle icon will change colour from blue to white.

Rebuy – cash tables

Activating auto rebuy will prompt a red dot to appear on the rebuy icon on the table screen (bottom-right).

Rebuy – tournaments

The rebuy menu is displayed by clicking on the “Rebuy / Addon” tab on the far right of the “User Settings” window. You can also view the rebuy menu in the table screen by left-clicking on the rebuy icon. Right-clicking on the icon will implement the rebuy itself according to the tournament configuration.

Card format

The card format menu is displayed by clicking on the “Table layout” tab on the far left of the “User Settings” window. Here, you can select whether you prefer your cards to appear in a ‘tilt’ or ‘flat’ format.

Full screen

You can now view your table screen in full screen mode.

Notes

You can open your notes on your opponent in a game by left-clicking over their name or avatar. The notes screen will remain open until you close it. All previous notes will be carried over to the updated 888poker software.

In the new software version, we’ve cleaned up the tagging options, removing and updating certain tags as follows:

Old version New version
Shark No tag
Fish No tag
Donkey No tag
Bull No tag
Chicken No tag
Rock No tag
Light green (Tight bad) Green
Dark green (Tight good) Green
Light blue (Calling station) Light blue
Blue (Steamer) Blue
Yellow (Solid) Yellow
Orange (Overly aggressive) Orange
Ping (Maniac) Purple
Grey/Red (Rock) No tag

‘Throw’ animation

For extra entertainment, you can ‘throw’ fun animated objects at your opponent during the game. Right click on their name/avatar and a menu of options will appear. You can enable this feature in the “User Settings” screen. On any given table where you are an active player, you’ll be able to use the ‘throw’ animation feature a maximum of once every 30 seconds.

Time bank

The time bank grants you an additional amount of time to make your move once your decision-time has run out. In the “Game settings” tab within the “User Settings” screen, you can select whether you’d like the time bank to be activated automatically or manually.

Automatic activation enables the time bank by default and is indicated as such by displaying it in an orange icon.

In the manual activation setting, the time bank is disabled by default, indicated by displaying it in a black icon. Should you choose to enable the time bank under the manual setting, you need to click on the ‘time bank’ icon.

Jackpot table

The 'Post Jackpot' check box is located on the drop-down hamburger menu of jackpot tables, below 'Auto muck hand'. Players are automatically included in the jackpot rounds. This means that throughout the game, you contribute to the jackpot and are eligible to scoop the jackpot if you win!
To be excluded from the jackpot, players must uncheck the 'Post Jackpot' check box in the menu. Once you have unchecked the box you will no longer contribute to the jackpot. However, you will also no longer be eligible to win the jackpot!

You're all done!
