Poker app updated by 888 Holdings for 888 Poker

Online gaming operator 888 Holdings has updated the mobile phone application for its 888 Poker brand to give players access to a full range of multi-table tournaments.

According to, the app had previously restricted players to cash games and ‘sit and goes’, but players will now have an expanded selection of poker gaming options.

The newly updated app will also be accompanied by a promotional campaign, which will include a television advertisement.

Users will also receive a free tournament to ticket to a freeroll with a $50,000 (€38,500) prize pool. Freerolls will run twice per week throughout the promotional period, while players will also have the opportunity to won more tickets by playing on their mobile devices.

The app was first launched for Android devices in February 2012, and was made available for the Apple iOS market six month later. It is now available to download to Android users anywhere in the world, whilst Apple has limited availability of the app to countries where the law on gambling-related downloads is clear – in order to keep in line with recent changes to its App Store policy.
