Get to know the Best Poker Games at 888poker

Texas Hold'em

Texas Hold’em is considered the purest of all poker games by many poker players and is still the most popular format played online. If you’re a new player, there’s no better game to play than Texas Hold’em to get you up to speed with the basic rules and strategy – plus it’s a lot of fun learning how to master the poker genre!

Omaha Hi

If Texas Hold’em poker is the most popular poker game online, then Omaha is a close second. In Omaha, you get dealt 4 starting cards to make a hand – although you can and must only use 2 hole cards and the best five cards win. This feature makes for an exciting and action-packed game where the flops can promise staggering amounts of draws.

Discover how Omaha can improve your poker game on our Omaha Hi games page!

Omaha Hi-Lo

Omaha Hi-Lo is a draw heavy version of Omaha Hi where you can win pots with 2 made hands – a high hand and a low hand. Each winner will receive 50% of the pot at showdown. With two chances to win, players can go for a scoop where they win both the high and the low ends of the pot, holding the best 5-card hands.

Progressive Knockouts (PKO)

Progressive Knockout tournaments (PKO’s) are the next best thing in poker. With bounties on the line, players can recoup their buy-ins without having to wait to make it into the money. As players progress, their bounties start to increase, and if you outlast everyone else, you get to collect your own bounty!

HORSE is an acronymthat includes 5 different poker variants. They are: Hold’em, Omaha Hi/Lo, Razz (Stud Lo), Stud(Stud Hi), and Eight-or-Better (Stud Hi/Lo).


Razz is a form of StudPoker. In the ranking system for this game, straights and flushes do not count against a lowhand.

2-7 Triple Draw

In 2-7 Triple Draw,players receive their own individual 5-card hand. And they have not one, but three draw attemptsto make the best “low” hand.

5-Card Omaha

In 5-Card Omaha,instead of being dealt four hole cards, each player receives five. They can only use two of thefour to make the best hand.


This poker variant falls under the “draw” and “Lowball” poker families. But Badugi uses a uniquehand ranking system to determine the best hand.

Chinese Poker

In Chinese poker, players each receive13 initial cards. They must divide these cards into threedifferent poker hands, attempting to make the best/highest-ranked holdings.

In Short Deck poker, all deuces, threes, fours, and fives are removed from the deck – leaving 36cards. This difference can result in a more action-packed game.
