On Ipoker you can have different accounts (1 for 770, 1 for WH) so maybe you can on pacific.

I checked with live support before I made my account, they said its ok but cant get the bonuses, Im not to worried about the bonuses as I know I will profit and I got $188 for £30 so that was an amazing £120 for 1st deposit

Hey there, JasonKing94!

I had to edit your post, as that's not quite what the community tool is intended for.

We also can't let you post encouraging people to make untracked accounts on our forums, for rather obvious reasons.

Hope you understand.

Regards,
Richard

Was just wondering for the increased player pool. Shame to hear it may not be sad

Hi KozakFB,

As per Longplay's previous answer, I can confirm that 888 & WSOP share the same network (pacific) and therefore share the same player pool.

There are of course some unique tournaments exclusive to one or other, but the vast majority of tournaments can be entered by 888 players and WSOP players.

You are able to have 1x account set up on each, but understandably cannot play the same tournaments with both accounts.

The benefit of having a tracked 888 account through PokerStrategy.com is that in addition to all of 888poker's own promotions & VIP club etc, you will also earn Strategy points and qualify for PokerStrategy.com's own freerolls, events & promotions.

Hope this helps, if you have any further questions, don't hesitate to shout.

Best regards,


Bart

Hi FatSunny,

No I'm afraid not. They are different entities, different companies, they just use the same network of players.

Don't blame you for asking though, would've been really convenient if they were one and the same.

Best regards,


Bart
