Get to know the Best Poker Games at 888poker

Texas Hold'em

A firm favourite with novices and seasoned experts alike, thanks to its exciting possibilities and dramatic showdowns, Texas Hold’em is one of the most popular games to play. There are four rounds (pre-flop, flop, turn and river), with each player being dealt two ‘hole’ cards to begin with. Victory in this game comes by forming the best five-card hand, using your hole cards and the five community cards – or convincing the others that you have it. Eager to learn more? Find out some tips and tricks right here before getting started.

Progressive Knockouts (PKO)

Progressive Knockout (PKO)

Looking for an action-packed poker experience that’s filled with drama, tension and excitement? Progressive Knockouts (PKO) could be your new favourite game. Every player has a bounty on their head that increases as they progress through the field. If you manage to last until the end, you’ll even get to reap your own bounty. Not only does this offer great competitive fun, but you have the chance to win more cash than in a standard tournament.



With the remarkable opportunity to win up to 10,000 times your buy-in, BLAST sometimes sees the victor of a small-scale Sit & Go secure a colossal jackpot. Three players compete against each other for a randomly drawn prize pool, in this time-limited single-table thriller. A timer starts counting down as the game begins. Once it runs out, players automatically go all-in, until just one winner remains. The prize pool isn’t revealed until the game starts, adding to the sheer anticipation of BLAST.

Omaha Hi

Almost as much of a hit as Hold’em, Omaha Hi is packed full of excitement and action. Similar to Hold’em, your aim is to make the best possible hand, using your hole cards and the community cards. The difference in Omaha Hi, is that you’ll have four hole cards to choose from instead of just two! This game offers bigger hands and huge draws more frequently as a result, and is especially popular with newcomers. No matter your skill level, you’ll be able to pick things up very quickly.

Omaha Hi-Lo

A compelling variation of Omaha Hi, this draw-heavy alternative to the standard version gives you the chance to win pots with two made hands. As the name suggests, these are a ‘high’ hand and a ‘low’ hand. Play either fixed or pot limit formats – whichever you go for, it’s an exhilarating game to test your poker playing skills in.

Learn How to Play Other Poker Variations

5 Card Draw

5 Card Draw is a classic draw-style poker game. Play by holding and discarding cards, replacing the latter with fresh cards from the deck.


HORSE stands for Hold’em, Omaha Hi/Lo, Razz, Stud and Eight-or-Better (Stud Hi/Lo). Ideal if you want to practice or play a range of different games, it switches between the different formats round to round.


A great lowball alternative to the classic 7 Card Stud, Razz offers the same concept and flow – just with lowball hand rankings.

2-7 Triple Draw

In this variant, all players are dealt a unique five card hand. You have three tries to make the best low hand in 2-7 Triple Draw.

5-Card Omaha

Rather than being dealt four hole-cards, players instead receive five in 5-Card Omaha – as the name suggests. You can still only use two to make your hand, but the number of possibilities shoot up.


An intriguing option among the draw and lowball styles of poker, Badugi is a very unique game. The draw usually occurs three times and happens before the betting round.

Chinese Poker

Another somewhat unique choice, players of Chinese Poker draw 13 cards initially. Your aim is to make the highest ranked holdings, by dividing your 13 cards into three different poker hands.

Short Deck

Action packed and fast paced, Short Deck can be played in both cash games and tournament format. Deuces, threes, fours and fives are all removed from the deck, leaving a total of 36 higher-value cards.


What is the easiest poker game for beginners?

Texas Hold ‘Em is considered one of the easiest games to pick up, as the rules are relatively simple and it’s fun to play. However, there are a wide selection of poker variants that are great for beginners. If you’re just starting out, be sure to pick up the basics by reading a guide on how to play.

Are there any bonuses for registering?

Yes, we offer some great welcome bonuses. New players can get a $20 FREE bonus, with no deposit needed. When you do make a deposit, you can also get a welcome 100% bonus of up to $1000!

Can you win money playing poker games online?

Yes, you can win real cash when playing poker online. Tournaments usually offer prize money to the top 10-30% of players, depending on the format and number of entries, while cash games see money wagered on each round of betting. Just make sure you register for real money games when signing up, as free games are good for practicing, but don’t usually offer prizes or payouts.

Are online poker games harder than live versions?

No. You can expect a similar variety of skill-levels online, to what you might find in a land-based casino. Smaller stakes cash games and tournaments are more likely to feature beginners and ‘casual’ players. Whereas high stakes games tend to attract experienced and knowledgeable veterans.

Choose the level that feels most comfortable for you, and you should expect a well-balanced experience. Online games are, however, often faster and more convenient to enter than in a ‘live setting’ – and you can also play from the comfort of your home or while on the go.
