Commercial online gambling officially launched in Ontario on April 4 and it included the launch of the 888 brands, including 888poker.
Residents of Ontario now have access to 888poker’s enhanced mobile poker app. That gives them access to 888poker gift drops, and daily free roll tournaments worth $5,000. There is also a weekly $10,000 freeroll tournament every Sunday.

888poker goes live in Ontario!
Continuing the freeroll bonanza, Ontario residents can also join in on the 24/7 Freeroll Festival which is currently ongoing at 888poker. The festival includes three ways to get into free tournaments and win free money. They include the Freebie Freerolls, which are available to all players, the Funky Freerolls, which you can win entry in through gift drops, and the Fabulous Freerolls, which are available from the Winner Spinner.
For full details on these three tournaments and the 24/7 Freeroll Festival, visit the 888poker lobby.
The opening days of 888poker in Ontario have led to huge overlays in several guaranteed poker tournaments. In the $10,000 guaranteed PKO Rumble tournament, which has a $109 buy-in, only 36 players signed up.
If you do the math you’ll realize this led to a $6,400 overlay. That means you have fewer players to beat to go after what ends up being a larger portion of the $10,000 prize pool. As 888poker becomes more popular in Ontario these overlays will start to disappear so keep an eye out for them before they’re gone.
888poker customers also get access to the 888 sportsbook and the 888 casino. Each 888 brand if offering a different sign up and deposit promotion. Before you make your first deposit in to your 888 account make sure you examine all the promotions available and take advantage of the one that best suits your playing habits.
