Let’s count other people’s money? - New financial report 888 released
The poker room 888 is a rather mysterious phenomenon in the world of online poker. On the one hand - a well-known and decades-proven company. One of the most obvious options when looking for an alternative to Pokerstars or an additional poker room. A decent amount of weak players and good evening traffic at the tables. On the other hand - mediocre software even of the new 888 poker client, endless mirrors instead of a single official site, high rake and low rakeback. Some analysts seriously fear the imminent repetition of the path of the Microgaming Poker Network (will close in May this year).
The main sense after studying the preliminary report of 888 is cautious optimism. Casino and sports betting under the auspices of 888 continue to grow. The head of the company reports a record number of registrations in all products - more than 1,000,000. New users are always good. At the poker tables we will be happy to see fans of sports betting or Casino games.
However, profits from poker continued to decline. The positive moments of last year for poker 888 were the launch of the new Poker 8 client, the signing of an exclusive contract with the WSOP, as well as the consolidation of live tournament series. The company plans to conduct an even larger-scale 888poker LIVE Sochi. In the coming weeks, the raffle of packages at the WSOP-2020 will begin.
A full report on the results of 888 will be published in March. In the meantime, we note that the plans and schedule of the tournaments make it clear that poker continues to play a large role in the activities of 888 Holdings. We also wanted to give an argument about the new 888 poker client, they say that they are not developing a new platform in order to quickly close after, but bad example of MPN doesn’t allow us to do this.
