Bet slider Buttons
Now, in the 'settings' area you can personalise your bet slider buttons. You can reconfigure your own bet slider to show the exact values that suit you the most. This can be done in a few simple steps:
- Open up 'settings'
- Choose 'Bet Slider'.
- Personalise your bet slider for a more personal player experience!
Smarter Table Tiling
If you are playing more than one table and need to view them all at the same time, then they will now be tiled in a way that is easier to navigate. If you have 4 or fewer tables open then you will see them in regular mode. If there are more than 4 tables open then they will automatically be minimised.
New Equity Display
You will now be able to see the equity displayed on the table whenever there is an all-in-all and call before the river... which will be even more dramatic when you're at the final table! However, you don't have to see it, you can simply head over to the 'Game Settings' tab and opt to guide the equity.
Updated Sit Out Menu
Now you can find all the sit out options displayed all together in one designated area. There is also a new icon bar that indicates your sit out status has been added. This will ensure you are fully aware when playing multi-table poker. Should you choose to sit out a tournament then this will be indicated by a red dot. If you are simply sitting out of a game then your middle icon will change from blue to white in color.
The tournament rebuy menu can be found when you click on the 'User Settings' window then by clicking on the 'Rebuy/Addon' tab on the far right. It can also be seen if you left-click on the re-buy icon on the table screen. If you right-click on the rebuy icon then you will automatically rebuy based on the configuration of the tournament.
You can now open any notes you have made on the opposition by left-clicking on their name or avatar. This will stay open until you choose to close them. You can also carry any previous player notes over to our update 888poker software.
In addition, our new software version cleans up the tagging options - updating and removing tags including:
|Old version||New version|
|Light green (Tight bad)||Green|
|Dark green (Tight good)||Green|
|Light blue (Calling station)||Light blue|
|Orange (Overly aggressive)||Orange|
New ‘Throw’ Animation
If you're feeling particularly frustrated during a game, you can now even throw fun animated objects at another player by enabling this in the 'User Settings' screen. To do this:
- Right-click on their name or avatar to open a menu of options
- If you are an active player on a table then you can use the 'throw' animation feature.
- You can use this once every 30 seconds.
Get Extra Decision Time with a TimeBank
We have added a time bank that gives you even more time to decide your move if your decision time has run out. To enable this:
- Open the 'User Settings' window.
- Click in 'Game Settings'.
- Choose whether you would prefer the time bank to be activated manually or automatically.
If you choose manual, the time bank will be disabled and displayed in black. If you want to enable it you will need to click on the 'time bank icon.
If you choose automatic, then the time bank will be displayed in orange.
The Jackpot Table
You can find the 'Post Jackpot' check box in the jackpot tables drop-down hamburger menu, underneath the 'Auto muck hand'. Players will automatically be included in jackpot rounds which means that as you lay the game, you will automatically contribute to the pot - and are in with the chance of winning!
If you don't want to be included, then you will need to uncheck the 'Post Jackpot' checkbox manually. As soon as you uncheck it, you will not contribute to the jackpot anymore and you will not be eligible to win.
That's it! Get playing and enjoy! Please note:
