    888 has been around for a while so we can have some expectation of legitimacy. They have recently acquired PartyPoker so they are serious about their business and have intentions of growing which means the players will enjoy some good bonus and prizes to keep them engaged. They could use some improvements in their graphics but that is a subjective preference. Some players are more interested in how much money they can earn on the site. 888 poker does have a webcam table feature that is something of a novelty. Could be a draw for some who are interested in the social aspect of the game and wish to see who they are playing against. But for the most part, online poker players are interested in good table selection, high traffic of inexperienced players from whom they can show a positive expectation. Many poker players like to multi table and this requires a high player count. Now with the consolidation we see happening in the online poker space with 888 partnering up with bwin, we can expect to see increased competition with Amaya owned PartyPoker who currently has the lion's share of the poker pie. But if they keep increasing their rake and showing a tendency to maximize their profits by cutting costs and player incentives, they may find themselves in second place soon enough.

    there have been some complaints of excessive fees on deposits and exchange rates when withdrawing any winnings. Maybe be worth it to verify with customer service, what exactly is the fee and exchange rate before deposit.

    some users have reported disconnects while playing. Suggest all new players try out the site before playing for real money.
