888poker Launches Snap, a fast fold game of poker

They say that advances and innovations on the web, especially with social media and always come from two sources: online gambling and yes, probably, pornography. The former is safer to talk about for all intents and purposes.

888poker, one of the leading online poker sites has just introduced a new feature on the virtual tables — Snap Poker. After going through its alpha and beta phases which were only open to a select few, the new table features a SNAP fold trigger that can be pressed to discard your current opponents and immediately insert you with new opponents done via the in-game algorithm ladder ranking.


For the uninitiated, ‘snap’ plays exactly like the traditional poker we’ve come to love except that once you fold, you are IMMEDIATELY dealt a new hand, which means that you’re never kept idle while waiting for other players and you can focus all of your attention on a brand new strategy. Now, ‘Snap Fold’ however is a brand new feature that can only be recreated online as it assigns you new opponents based on ladder and skill rankings. In real life this would be a chore, but it is easily done online. Believe it when we say that you’re never kept waiting!

You can download the feature via PC with Mac and mobile device versions arriving soon.
