I have noticed that the marketing of 888 against other online poker houses is surprising, that regarding the amount of promotions and publicity of said page every day. It is a constant bombardment and something that is reflected in their numbers of daily participants on that page. On the other hand, Pokerstars looks cautious and shy, being this pioneer in the field, I do not know why, it has neglected its promotional part, something that I remember 10 years ago was not like that. It is not a fame and lie down to sleep, since the numbers of connected users is decreasing, recalling those times when the number of connected players exceeded one million. If 888 improves its system software, I would have no doubt that it would dethrone pokersatars in a short time and many would end up migrating to their page as it is happening right now. It will dawn and we will see
888 has been a great heaven for freeroll hunters and and freeroll players are addicted to Poker freeroll games. 888 knows it very well and does capitalize it very well. That is why it is always flooded with recreational players.
In my view 888 is No 2 brand in online Poker after Stars and it is doing quite wonderfully without any blames and scams.
It is really a shame that Pokerstars doesn't do enough in terms of new promotions and marketing.
They have done a lot of marketing previously and now they are mostly passively increasing their player base numbers just by being the most popular room.
The majority of poker players will play in the site that they find the most secure and the site that has the biggest volume of players and tournament guarantees.
For the time being and probably for the foreseeable future that is Pokerstars.
