GIBRALTAR, October 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

888poker.com, leading online poker site, launches its own fast-fold poker game, SNAP.

After extensive BETA testing, SNAP is now open to all users. SNAP tables offers a SNAP fold button that can be pushed when a player is not in the big blind position and no raise in action on the table. Once the SNAP button is pushed the player's opponents change to new opponents with a new hand being dealt within 3 seconds. Unlike other fast variant games in the market, SNAP offers a position balancing mechanism (as opposed to random reseating), while maintaining high pace of hand per hour. In addition to the position balancing, players also can utilize a fold watch and play option which gives the option to monitor to rest of folded hand while playing the next hand.

Currently the feature is available on the PC download version and will be released on other formats including mobile very soon.

This new innovation is part of several upgrades that 888poker has launched this year, including MAC download version and MTT mobile apps.

Hila Klein, Senior Vice President of Product Technologies for 888holdings, stated, "The SNAP fast-fold game is an exciting addition to our poker offering. We took the extra steps to make sure it offered a balanced game play experience while allowing players to instantly SNAP to a new hand and new table. Our goal is to continually deliver customer satisfaction and increased poker network liquidity and SNAP is a great addition to the product."
