888 PokerCam

You can brag, complain and see when your opponents are getting heated, you could probably even notice the veins on their necks pulsate when they’re pulling off a big bluff. This is as close as you’ll get to playing live poker at a casino but you’re doing it from home.

888Pokercam cash games and tournaments can be found in the lobby represented with a PokerCam Icon. To play web cam poker you will need:

PC with a webcam or laptop with one built in.
Most webcams have microphones built in, if not attach a mic.
Internet connection (128KB bandwidth for streaming audio and video).

Players can still join and play on the 888 PokerCam tables without a webcam but their visuals and audio will not feature at the table.
