The 888poker players are offered a variety of games such as Texas Hold Em, Omaha Hi and 7 Card Stud, and they can participate in a large number of online poker promotions, tournaments, events ranging from daily to monthly and a loyalty rewards program. The players can choose between a downloadable and animated flash software version.
