Starting from Tuesday, 888poker has officially joined the instant-fold poker games party with the launch of Snap Poker, a new variant now available to all 888poker players.
In line with one of poker’s latest trends, Snap Poker offers players a great chance to increase the number of hands played and generate even more frequent player points than ever before by instantly joining a new table every time they fold their hand. At the moment this new poker variant is available on a number of tables including sit-and-gos, cash games and multi-table tournaments.
As PokerNews’ own Matthew Pitt reported yesterday, at the time of the launch there were three cash games available; No Limit Hold’em with blinds of $0.01/$0.02 and $0.05/$0.10 and a Pot Limit Omaha table with blinds of $0.12/$0.25 although none of those tables had players seated at them.
Exception made for the new neon-style logo, Snap Poker tables look and feel exactly as the "traditional" 888poker ones, the only difference being the new "Snap Fold" button appearing on the screen every time you are not playing as the big blind and there has not yet been a raise.
Joining the action at the $20 Snap Freeroll that started yesterday at 1.20 p.m. (GMT), we could see how 888poker's rapid-fire poker variant met our (high) expectations and dealt new cards getting us in the middle of some new good poker action within 3 seconds from the moment we hit on the "Snap Fold" button.
$250,000 and an extreme jet flight experience up for grabs!
