888poker Testing Fast-Fold Product "Snap Poker"

Online poker room 888poker is currently testing a fast-fold product for real-money, pokerfuse can reveal.

The new game, dubbed “Snap,” is currently only available at a 1c/2c table for alpha-testers on the dot-com client.

Though the game was not running at the time of writing, and therefore unavailable for testing, the format is expected to follow the same tried-and-tested fast-fold formula—a fast-fold button immediately takes the player onto a new table with players in the same pool. The snap table sports a fetching ’80s neon aesthetic.

On launch, both cash games and and Snap tournaments will be offered. The tables are listed among normal cash games with a special legend, and also have their own tab in the main window.

888 will be one of the last major operators to add in a fast-fold product; it joins the ranks alongside—in descending order of popularity—Zoom, Rush, Speed, FastForward, Blaze, Zone, and Strobe.
