888 Teams Up at the Poker Tables

888 Teams Up at the Poker Tables

March has been a busy month so far for 888, as they've announced a variety of promotions and new offerings geared to their online poker and casino players. Their 888casino operations (also known as Casino on Net) have taken center stage for years but 888 has continued to plug away on the poker side as well. Other casino sites have tried to promote their poker brands for a year or two before largely giving up, but 888 seems dedicated to making its poker product work, as it continues to invest in both promotion and new technological innovations.

Cricket superstar Shane Warne has sported the 888 colors at major live poker events such as the WSOP and the Aussie Millions and is the centerpiece of a new television campaign that 888 is running to let people know about its new poker offerings. 888 released its new PokerCam technology and tables earlier in March, which lets players play online poker like usual but with a Web cam required, so that others players can see you at all times. Technology similar to Skype lets players chat as well, bringing some of the social nature of live poker to the online game. 

Their latest release is Teams Poker, which 888 hopes will take the social nature of the game one step further. Teams Poker also ties into 888's sportsbetting offering, as each Teams tournament is tied to a sporting event. Players might sign up for a tournament with a F1 theme, with players choosing between McLaren or Ferrari when they enter the tournament; play proceeds like a normal tournament but half the prizepool is reserved for players who pick the sporting event correctly, with the other half distributed to players based on how they finish in the tournament. Pick the right team to support and finish 1st in the tournament and you could be in line for a very nice payday; bust out quickly but pick the correct sports winner and you'll recoup some of your money.   

To lure new players to the tables, new online casino and poker players at 888 can claim an instant $8 cash bonus, and 888 is offering $100,000 in guaranteed tourneys including $1,000, $4,000 and $10,000 "Play More" freerolls.
