Key Takeaways
  • 888poker has released an updated mobile app which adds multi-table tournaments to its mobile poker room offering.

888poker has updated its mobile app so that players now have access to the full range of multi-table tournaments. Until now, the app restricted players to cash games and Sit and Go’s.

The first mobile app was launched for Android devices in Feb 2012, with an Apple iOS version following around six months later.

The app is available for Android users from anywhere in the world with a direct download from the website. iPad and iPhone users, who can only get apps from their countries’ App Store, are more restricted due to Apple’s store policy. Players from UK, Russia, Germany, Sweden, Ireland, Greece, Portugal, Romania, Czech Republic, Finland, Luxembourg, Slovakia, Slovenia, Austria, Malta, Hungary, Latvia, Poland, Cyprus and Lithuania should find the app available.

Apple’s store has recently taken a precautionary approach to offering gambling-related downloads in countries where the law is unclear. Australia is notably absent from the country list due to a recent crackdown on mobile apps.

The updated app is being accompanied by an new promotional campaign. Every user will receive a free tournament ticket to a freeroll with a $50k prize pool. The freerolls will run twice a week during the promotional period and will have the opportunity to win more tickets by playing on their mobile devices.

A TV advertisement has been released to promote the app:
