The range of the quality reaches from grottenschlecht to outstandingly well. 888 Poker belongs at present to the best, which the market has to offer. In order to arrive at this goal, the enterprise spared neither costs nor troubles. There has been a huge turnaround and, among other things, the software has been substantially further developed.

First of all: Use 888 Poker via the client software for the Mac. After a short download the program runs very stable and I can play poker anytime.
