Smartphone Usage Is Growing Rapidly Over Last 5 Years

27 Jan 2020

Over the last five years, the number of smartphone users worldwide has increased from 2,5 billion to 3,5 billion, and everything indicates that the trend will continue to grow more and more.

With this reality, undoubtedly, any company that tries to stay up to date in 2020 must have a functional mobile app. And 888Poker had this in mind when they designed their mobile poker app.

Smartphone Usage Is Growing Rapidly Over Last 5 Years

In 2012, 888Poker launched the first version of its mobile application, and since then, many exciting features have been added like fast-fold poker or user interface improvements. But what is inside the 888Poker mobile app?

Players can download and install 888Poker on iOS (iPhone/iPad) or Android straight from the App Store or the 888Poker website, respectively. Once installed, users can log in with their credentials or create a new account if it is necessary.

The main lobby is intuitive and well-designed; players can choose to play for real money or for practice, which is a great feature for new players who want to try the software.

After choosing the currency, players have access to:

• Cash Games;

• Sit & Go Tournaments;

• Scheduled Tournaments (MTT).

Players must choose the game format and stakes, and then the app will automatically assign a seat at a random table (quick-seat function), just like the desktop client. Of course, in a mobile version, this saves a lot of time.

The graphics and user interface are well-designed, and handy options for poker fans are available according to the stake; the action buttons (fold, call, etc.) are presented in different colors to avoid any possible misclick.

BLAST Poker, 4-handed hyper-turbo SnG tournaments are also available on the 888Poker mobile client; this is the local version of the popular Spin&Go, and for sure, any player would love to hit the maximum multiplier and compete for a $300,000 prize!

Heavy grinders who love joining MTTs would need to have a spare battery with them, as all major 888Poker events like the XL series (Blizzard, Inferno, and Eclipse) or high-stakes tournaments like The Dragon that features $200,000 GTD can be played right from your mobile device.

The most popular MTT events played at 888Poker usually draw the attention of hundreds of players, and the average duration is about 8 hours. Be sure to mark your calendar for the events you would like to play!

The tables are similar to the lobby and other sections of the mobile platform with a minimalistic design that makes it easy to play; the bet slider and pre-defined bet buttons are available (1/2, 3/4 of the pot).

The only drawback we can find about the 888Poker mobile platform is that multi-tabling is not allowed, even on large screen devices such as iPad.

This can be partially solved by joining fast-fold poker tables (called "Snap Poker") where players are transferred to new tables immediately after folding, so they don't have to wait until the end of the current hand.

It's important to mention that when joining via the mobile 888Poker app, the account works across all platforms, and all deposit and withdrawal methods are available.


Undoubtedly, the 888Poker mobile client was designed by players for players: joining a table is easy thanks to the quick-seat function, and the most popular formats are available to play. You can play any game via your cellular network (3G, 4G) or connected to a Wi-Fi station.

In 2020, the mobile poker industry will continue to develop, and the largest gambling companies will be ahead of them by launching new and exciting features for players.
