This is a discussion on Is 888Poker down within the online poker forums, in the Poker Rooms section; :confused: Is 888Poker down right now:confused:
Im doing good in a tourney on there, got disconnected & now am unable to log back into the
Actually did find out later that the site did go down for a bunch of players (but not all) for ~1hr. yesterday (was sitting with ~7,500 & got back on with 1,000.. 4bb's).
Heard this happened to many others on the 888Poker forum & then again later on P5's by the 888Poker rep. on there (888Anderson).
Any Aussies having problems connecting to 888poker.com ?
Telstra ADSL connection.
Keep getting the message - Unable to connect.
This has happend several times over the last 3 months, getting fed up with it.
When I was on there last (maybe couple days ago?), there was a window popping up that mentioned that the site would be down for 'scheduled maintenance'. I've seen this a few times lately on 888 & actually am rarely on there. Sooo... I'm assuming you just unfortunately tried to log in at the time they were doing the maintenance.
They've got those 'webcam' tables now in Tournaments as well (this is part of the 'maintenance' lately). Some other decent upgrades on 888 including a decent HandReplayer (finally). HandReplayer was having some glitches last week... & am guessing/assuming this is also part of the 'maintenance'.
Just tried again and I still get same message and can not connect.
It would appear they are blocking Australian IP addresses or have overlooked this with their maintenance. SLACK!
O well guess I will cancel account with 888poker.com and go play TitanPoker
