After receiving feedback from their customer base, 888poker has revamped their entire tournament schedule.

Recreational poker players will be wanting to take advantage of the new changes to the tournament schedule on 888poker. The poker platform has wiped the slate clean and rebranded their entire tournament collection to create better options for the more casual poker player.

888poker players have seen a plethora of changes made as of late, most notably with the introduction of the Made to Play platform which took place late last year. Well, the makeover has continued into 2021 with the website making plenty of modifications to their tournament calendar.

Responding to the wants and wishes of their clientele, the platform is looking to level the playing field with these improvements. Changes poker players can expect to see in tournaments include:

  • Fewer re-entries
  • More payouts
  • More recreational-friendly options
  • Increased number of events that take place during the busiest hours

On top of this, PKO enthusiasts will be pleased to know that their tournament of choice will feature more predominantly. Plus, those dreaming of a big payday will be excited to see more events with guarantees that exceed $10,000. The headline stealer, however, is that through these changes, 888poker are adding over $500,000 in guarantees each week.

There are fewer things more annoying than having to miss out on a juicy poker tournament due to having to get up for work in the morning, a common dilemma that many casual poker players face weekly. With this rebrand, many of the new tournaments will now be shorter in duration, a delightful change for those who have alarm clocks set for the early hours. In addition to this, there will be more opportunities for players to boost their bankrolls with many events paying out more players.

These measures are aimed at helping improve the evening player pools and creating big opportunities for recreational poker players.

And whilst some may shed a tear about never being able to the play the BIG Fish, Dragon, Monsoon or the Mega Deep again, poker players will be able to rebound and start new relationships with this new selection of 6-max, PKO, Turbo, Deepstack, Freezeout and Main Event tournaments.
