888 Poker has been the most improved online poker room over the course of the past couple of years. They’ve done a great job improving their product. Their software used to be fairly poor, but it has improved significantly lately and now includes webcam tables. They also have their software translated into German, Swedish, Spanish, French, Danish, Dutch, Italian, and Portuguese.
888 Poker has recently undergone huge changes with a complete overhaul of the software. This is a medium size site in terms of traffic with around 10,000 players during peak hours. It is one of the most popular rooms in Europe which is where the majority of the players are from.

The game selection at 888 Poker, while not totally inclusive, is better than most. Your options are Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, 7 Card Stud, and 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo. The betting options include fixed limits (from $0.02-$0.04 to $75-$150) as well as no limit and pot limit games (from $0.01-$0.02 to $10-$20). Since the site typically has such a large amount of traffic, you should never have trouble finding some action, even if you are looking at some of the less popular poker varieties.
Unsurprisingly, 888 Poker adheres to the same rake schedule as WSOP.com.
The rake percentage for all games is set at $0.01 per every $0.18 in the pot, or 5.56 percent. That’s on par with Party/Borgata and higher than PokerStars NJ (5 percent for most games).
As far as 888’s rake caps, they’re competitive, especially at short-handed tables. Full-ring, low-to-mid stakes games are slightly cheaper on Stars, but priced equivalently at $1/$2 and above.
Compared to Party/Borgata’s rake caps, 888’s are a bargain.
