Advantages of the client installation
Obviously, it is very convenient to play online at 888 poker: no need to install the client, user-friendly interface, ability to use any computer or mobile device.
But the online game on 888 poker has its minuses such as restricted access to all the game formats and limits, simplified lobby and functionality of the client, more restricted exterior view settings, a necessity to use VPN (if you have problems with the access). If you choose between playing at 888 poker online and through the client of the room – then the second variant is much better.
Benefits of the 888 poker desktop client:
- high-quality software;
- possibility to change the design of the game table and cards;
- available game for play chips and real money;
- more features and available games than in the mobile client and 888 online flash version;
- possibility to play at the several tables simultaneously (not just at one as in the mobile application);
- possibility to use the software to customize an exterior view, automate the game process and collect statistics, such as 888Caption, Holdem Manager 2, Poker Tracker 4 and others.
Externally, the desktop client, the mobile application and the flash version of the room are very similar, and you’ll feel the difference only by comparing them with each other. The installed client has the most complete functionality. But what is better: to play 888 poker online or through the client (or maybe through the mobile application?) - it is up to you.
