    888 have released a browser based version of their popular native iOS and Android real money poker app. This is good news for iPhone and iPad poker players who live in countries where gambling apps are not permitted in the iTunes App Store. Until now the 888 poker app was only available for iPhone/iPad in roughly 20 countries. Now anyone with an Apple phone or tablet can simply use their Safari browser to access the real-money web client. This is also excellent news for Nokia Lumia owners running Windows Phone as they can also now compete in cash games from their mobile handsets.

    1. Create a free account with 888 if you don't already have one.
    2. Browse to 888 from your tablet/phone
    3. Login using the credentials from Step. 1
    4. (Optional) Bookmark the app to your phones home screen for one-click access in future.

    Anyone with an Android device like an LG G3, HTC One M8 or a Samsung Galaxy S5 can also play the 888 web app on their phones or download the apk native app directly from the 888 website.

    NOTE: Cash games are NOT available to citizens of the United States.

    When I was on holiday outside the UK for the past couple of weeks the 888 native app wouldn't active so it was really handy to be able to use the web version. The 888 poker app you download from the iTunes App Store will only work in a dozen or so countries. I didn't notice any difference in terms of features and graphics so I'll probably continue to use the 888 browser-based poker app. Both versions offer Texas Hold'em ring games and Sit-and-Go tournaments for real-money.

    888 have updated their mobile poker client so that you can now also play their SNAP fast fold poker variant on any Android or iOS phone. The app already supported Texas Holdem cash games (or Play Money), schedule tournaments and Sit and Go's so it's got just about everything a poker player might need.

    It's also worth mentioning that the 888 Instant Play mobile poker site can be played while you are vacationing in the United States. The App Store version won't launch in the U.S. but you can continue playing via the Safari browser virtually anywhere in the world.
