The 888 Poker iPhone app has been around since autumn 2012 and is one of the few companies that have a real money poker platform that is available to play directly from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The experience between devices is very similar, but there are some subtle differences. The differences between playing the 888 poker app on your phone and the iPad app can be found below, as well as how to claim your completely free £20 with no deposit needed.
How to get the 888 poker iPhone app
You must have a full working account set up with 888 poker in order to play on the 888 poker iPhone app. If you would like to play, but do not have an account then you can also benefit from £20 completely free with no deposit needed to get your poker account up and running. To sign up for a new account with 888 poker and to claim your £20 free click or tap the link below.
Make sure you have some security on your device in order to keep your details safe and secure. Ideally do this from a desktop or laptop, but if you are on your mobile we would recommend completing the registration when you are connected to your home Wi-Fi.
As part of the registration you will need to enter a unique username and password. You will need this information to log in to the app. Once you have registered simply search for 888 poker in the app store. The iPhone app title appears as ‘poker by 888 poker’ and for iPad users the title is ‘888 poker mobile UK’. Download and install the app (or iPad app) and upon opening, enter your username and password. You should now be on the app’s home screen with your £20 available to play with.

888 poker iPhone app review
The 888 poker iPhone app is available for any iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running 4.0 or later. The app offers exactly the same experience on the iPhone and iPod touch and similar on the iPad.
The iPad gave us a clearer view of the table with chat features visible at all times rather than tucked away, as is the case on the 888 Poker iPhone app. The 888 poker app itself isn’t ground breaking in terms of graphics or sound, but does contain some personal features like being able to choose your own avatar.
One thing that was impressive was that the platform was very stable, with us here at poker apps experiencing no problems with connecting. Texas hold em is the only game currently being offered with no-limit, fixed limit and pot limit options available across cash stakes and sit and go tournaments.
There is an option for beginners to play for fun rather than real cash in order to gain experience before playing the 888 poker iPhone app for real.
Overall we found that the 888 poker iPhone app does what it is supposed to – it allows you to play poker on the move. There are social features attached but the 888 poker iPhone app itself does not compare to the desktop experience, which has a lot more features and games available. (You can also use the desktop version on the same account and benefit from that as well).
