This is a wonderful game to play with friends & kill time. Lately I launch the app and it closes me out. Am using on iPhone 8 Plus. Please fix this bug issue.
Worst app ever
by Big balls in town889 on 2018/02/20 20:20
If you are skilled forget it. This app is for those that buy coins.I first started using it several years back. I was locked out and they just refused to help. Finally after 2 years of trying they let me sign back in .No support is available. period.Just a simple fact they have no support system.This games is about high paid for cues. Then you just shot anywhere and balls magically fly in the cups. Some times right through your own balls
GREAT GAME
by Country Boy14 on 2018/02/20 19:45
It’s not perfect, but it’s as close to the real thing as I’ve ever seen. My guess is that people that are complaining don’t grasp the fundamentals of real pool. Force, action, reaction & English. Do yourself a favor & get some Legendary Cue’s. It will cost you about $10. You buy cash & then purchase the Legendary cue boxes for cue pieces. The benefit is you never have to use coins to refuel cue for full performance as well as better aim etc. **ONLY COMPLAINT IS THEIR ISN’T A 50 MILLION COIN 9 BALL GAME**. WHY DO 8 BALL PLAYERS BENEFIT & 9 BALL PLAYERS DON’T❓ Make it to where you have to bank the 9 or obviously on the break. Charge the rental fee just like the 8 ball games. Look forward to playing like the big boys. This 20 Million isn’t fair for us trying to compete in the weekly competition‼️ THANKS

Rigged to a Horrible Extent
by Gamer8391 on 2018/02/20 18:24
8 Ball Pool, at first glance, is a fun and fair game that all people can enjoy. However, I was severely mistaken. This game is nothing but a way to make dirty money. For example, today I had three thousand coins, and managed to go on a four game losing streak, losing all of my currency. To make matters worse, my final loss was to a level 119 player, which is extremely unfair being only a level 25 player currently. And so, Miniclip uses this game in hopes of victims to buy their useless currency in order to fully enjoy the game. Thank you.

I love it! Call your pocket games kills the luck shots. Your friends can challenge you if they have the nerves. I love shooting the big balls in 8 ball. The wife keeps the end of my stick chalked. She loves big balls as well. Come play!

Problems getting in
by Mashock on 2018/02/20 07:26
Each time I open it, I get booted out after 6 to 11 seconds. I keep losing any spins, etc. I don’t want to delete it and lose all my data with the game, not to mention, I just bought a bunch of coins yesterday! Please help fix it!
The app crashes constantly, SPECIALLY after in-app purchases. VERY FRUSTRATING
by burningmax on 2018/02/20 07:10
The game push you to buy coins via in-app purchases (read also other negative reviews) but, what is worst, tends to crash continuosly. The most frustrating times are when you are winnig a game or a tournament, or even worst when you purchase coins to enter a game and, just a couple of shoots after, it crashes and cancels the game - but of course the credit is gone!!! This is very wrong and, by reading others reviews, I see that it happens to many players. Less than an hour ago I have spent 1.99$ for a stack of coins but I could just enter 2 tournaments (the first crashed right after my successful breaking, the second as I was about to win the first round) and a 1-to-1.game (that crashed at half game, again I was winning). Basically I had pretty much the entire purchaed credit blown with three consecutive crashes over no more than 3-4 minutes. The iTunes App Editorial Team should block the in-app purchases until the crash bug is fixed, and also force the app developers to review the crash logs, and refund all credits unjustly swallowed by such crashes.
Dont Bother

Worlds number one pool game
by j 8 ball on 2018/02/20 01:21
I started out having a lot of fun playing the game but once I had purchased some coins one time it would make you lose say you would continuously buy more coins. The game is definitely not consistent when you are shooting. Computer makes you lose so you buy more coins.
Rewards
by Miks D. on 2018/02/19 23:18
There should be more rewards for leveling up. I still only get 1 dollar each time, and I just reached 100. It says you get more points for purchasing, but then doesn’t give you the money to buy anything.
Love/Hate
by Little me with many friends on 2018/02/19 21:06
I love the game when it loads and work, it is almost a tease, it works just long enough for me to get involved and then it disconnects or shuts down. Then i must restart the game, if I’m in the middle of a game, I just lost... I’m tired of this but I love the game. So what should I do ?

The Spinning Wheel of Chance on 8 Ball Pool
by Thompson837 on 2018/02/19 18:25
Hey Fellow Players help support my theory. Do you play pool a lot? If so do you win higher numbers on The Spinning Wheel of Chance higher than 75, 150, 250, 500 consistently. I think there is a direct correlation between the two. I have been playing this game for years. If The Spinning Wheel of Chance is any indication of how the pool game is run. I have hit $150 dollars 7 times in a row many, many, times. And the second spin if you get it, not being knocked out by an ad, is always half of the first spin. Now the new thing is you can spin for 99 cents a chance to win up to 1,000,000 point chips. No matter what you spin it’s going to be rigged and you get to pay money for the privilege. The Spinning Wheel is supposed to be a Wheel of Chance. Not a fixed Wheel. I know not winning points is supposed to get you to buy points. But I think the opposite is true if you win more points you do more.
can’t play unless you pay!
by npighioere on 2018/02/19 18:14
After about playing for 50 games and getting to level 10, I was not allowed to play anymore games, a pop up saying to buy more coins would show any time I wanted to play. Now I had to delete and redownload just so I could play without paying 2$ for coins. Stupid!!!!
Chat
by SaifSarwarKhan on 2018/02/19 17:30
Hi, add a full chat feature like the top seller game “LudoStar”. Otherwise the game is super awesome to play and doesn't have a single glitch, runs like a charm!

Best Game Ever!

Great job Miniclip, I am currently 11 years old and level 20 and have 60k coins. I love this game so much! 9 ball and tournaments are the best! Keep it up, great job!!!
Fun Game, but....
by MinaRL* on 2018/02/19 15:32
It is a fun game, great setup to easily be able to play your friends. I agree with another reviewer, spin and win game, I have never gotten better than 500 chips. You have to be careful when you are scrolling to play a game, you can accidentally play a higher stakes game, the game does not give you an option to cancel.
Game keep crashing
by yzlh on 2018/02/19 14:58
The game is too simplified compared to real games. Was going to rate it 3 stars. Since a few days ago, it just kept crashing on my iPhone. So now it’s only worth 1 star...

If you are looking for a way to pass/waste time this is it. The skill needed is a great as you want to use but anyone con win,the rules are orthodox although I’ve never heard of a lot of them. Overall it’s a good game.

Since a while the game keeps on crashing after a minute or so. Yes my IOS version is update, yes I have the latest game version, yes I have enough space on my Iphone and wireless works just fine. Where can I get a refund for my coins? And I did not rate 5 stars but 1 star. It automatically selects 5 stars.

Fix the rules of the game
by superlogger1 on 2018/02/18 20:15
Why does your opponent not get penalized for not trying his last shot at the 8 ball. Instead just let the clock run out. If you don’t try a shot you should lose. Simple enough. If there’s no shot opportunity just let the clock run out you won’t get penalized for it.

by Bstan70rr on 2018/02/18 17:37
I cannot explain why I seem to have to play at least twenty games of 8Ball Pool a day. It is a well built app with nearly zero glitches. There is one annoying "bug", and it occurs when opponents can stall for time--either to distract, out of frustration of getting ready to lose, or a combination of both. It is a real annoying part of the game that would be easy to fix

For two days I have been getting kicked out of the game.
Cheating Game
by Mi Marlene on 2018/02/18 17:21
Doesn't give you the correct amount of money you win nor does it take out the right amount you bet. I feel it's hacked n or rigged. The total I have before getting out of game is never the same as when I return. Fix your cheating game

The game is fun but...
by Ronbo13 on 2018/02/18 17:07
The game is fun but be very careful. There's some seriously dishonest BS going on. There is a wheel of fortune you can spin for rewards. You can spin once a day for free, then you pay 99c for additional spins. I have 2 iPads. I've been playing this game for a month. The spins are not random. One iPad almost always gets a "250" and the other almost always gets a "150". Each one got a result in the thousands early on, to trick you into wanting more. If this was a casino, this kind of behavior would end up with someone in handcuffs. I'm surprised it's considered okay just because it's an app.

There is not much to say about a digital game that is based off of gambling. Most buy their way to victory so don’t waste your time or money. This game is totally rigged, so that you will want to spend real money on a terrible game. Don’t download!!!😡😡😡

Can’t play anymore on account the app randomly closes. Sometimes before I get into a game, sometimes after. Down 1mil b/c closed twice just after the break. By the time I get back in, I’ve forfeited my dinaro. I keep testing now with cheap $100 games; nothing has changed tho. Just keeps closing. Waiting for another bug-fixing-update.

8 Ball Pool
by Drpoker777 on 2018/02/17 22:23
Best APP ever!!! Best app whereby your skill as a real pool player transfers well to playing this game (e.g., use of English). Difficult to play initially without spending $, given you have to pay to play (cues cost you points beyond the points you bet on the game, per game played), yet once you have a legendary cue, the app pays you to play, or you earn points whether you are winning or losing. Suggested changes, from my point of view would be: 1) more ways to earn cash. 2) weekend tourneys that only pay the top 100, should pay more like a poker tournament, whereby the number of payouts increase with the number of players entered. Addictive for sure. Love playing players from Europe, the Middle East, Far East, South America... Thanks, Dr. Powell
Too much luck.
by DrRob8091 on 2018/02/17 19:25
There needs to be a rule change that if you scratch three times in a row, you lose the game. Too often, people who don’t want to open up the table just sit there and won’t break or won’t take a shot at all. Can literally do it all day. Changing the rule to three strikes in a row and you lose would fix this.
It won’t let me make an account

Wth miniclip?
by Kenzi713 on 2018/02/17 17:53
I’ve had this game for almost 3 years across various devices-despite being shorted on at least one purchase and one item purchased with in game cash. Whenever I have tried to report an issue it is not resolved or even responded to. I have made my issues known by contacting through email, Facebook and message boards. The only reasons I have continued to play is the variety of players and in game options. Now I can’t even play. Every time I open the app it crashes. Both my phone and the app have the latest updates available. I tried emailing customer service but I don’t even think it went through because it redirected me to a blank page upon completion-multiple times. Normally-even with the bad customer service I would still give the game 3 stars but not being able to play is ridiculous. Fix the problem already!

I paid for two packs in the game and only received items from one of them, and no where in game is there a customer support page nor is there one on website that’s shown in App Store.
Shotty
by Kal710 on 2018/02/17 10:06
I’ve been playing this game for months, meanwhile, I’ve experienced a dozen glitches or more. All resulting in losing “coins” which is basically the objective of the game; it’s safe to say I’ve lost well over 1,000,000 coins due to glitches such as the game freezing, shutting down, or just simply not registering the move I just made and in turn losing my turn which results in a lost match. It’s just frustrating at best.
More of a pool game for kids, wouldn’t recommend who like competitive games
by Big Daddy Long John on 2018/02/17 09:21
How about in tournaments when a player has no balls left and just has to pot the 8 ball, you stop the stupid 3 min timer. I lost too many matches after running all over someone and then with only 3 seconds left, the game just ends and that’s it lol. Fix it please. And sloppy shots make the game more luck based than skilled. You should also have to call the 8 ball. With sloppy crazy shots counting, it makes the game fun for about 30 mins and then gets cartoonish almost. Not realistic or competitive by any means....

I will say this game used to be fun , at least it used to be when what I believed the description they printed to lure players in. They must have no conscience taking money people fork over to purchase coins or cues. I hope doesn’t take new players long before they realize that their not playing human opponents. It’s only make believe!! So, as long as you don’t give these people money, and if you don’t mind playing a phony opponent well go for it, enjoy and have yourself some fun! As for myself, I was furious when I got ripped offI I felt like such a fool because I had sent money to purchase coins to play fake opponents as well as robbed of my coins. I mean, how stupid can I be? The little so-called glitches they called them, oh yeah they were glitches all right. They were fixed all right, fixed to better hide more thieving ways to take your money spent on coins!! How could I be so trusting!??? How stupid, sending money! Then I said, “Hmmmm🤔,” I can practice! Easy, download it, play till ya run out of coins, delete it, then download it again, delete, download, delete, download… ya get my point? I know I’m just giving my finger some exercise by typing all this because none of my ‘warning reviews’ have been printed, oh wait just a second, the very first one. Oh yea, I forgot, it was a positive review!! Yee-Haw!! I feel bad for all of us who found out the truth about this game, especially if they paid $$$ to these cheating, lying, greedy developers. Oh well, my fingers have had enough exercise. Maybe this review will slip by if someone isn’t paying attention...🤥 This is a joke! I know I’d probably get in some deep **** if I mention the name of any apps, but I did find a couple pool games that are legitimate. They are truly more fun and challenging. Oh and your opponent, they have a pulse!!🤣Much better graphics too!! If ya got money to burn, next time you have a bonfire just throw it in there and watch it burn, burn baby burn!!! ☮️Peace

Used to enjoy the game. Luck to skill ratio getting worse. Now, game will load, but after about 6 seconds, closes off the app. Can’t play anything! 😡

I have been addicted to this game for months but now it crashes within about 20 seconds of opening. I haven’t been able to play in over 2 weeks now
MY FAVORITE GAME EVER!!! But.....
by The pixel god on 2018/02/17 02:51
This game is absolutely amazing but when you use the cues it has a battery and you have to keep repaying it it kills the game in a way but still is my favorite game!!! Good job!!

This game is amazing!
I love this game !
by rainripples on 2018/02/17 02:03
It has been so much fun playing this game over the past 6 months and building my skill level. It has just the right balance of skill and randomness, just have to wade through the pop ups at the beginning.
This game

is very nice.
Don't waste your time!
by Poolstudent on 2017/08/08 13:29
This is the one of the all time worst games I have ever played in my life! The luck to skill ratio has to be 1352 to 1. I know it's just a game app and it is not the real game but the amount of all I have to do it hit the balls hard and anything goes in is crazy. It would be fine if the app was letting it work both ways but it doesn't. There has been numerous times when my opponent could barely see their object ball and was able to get it in a pocket by only hitting it hard, no spin at all, and not even scratching or completely not getting it in a pocket and perfectly set up for the next shot. If anything it's a hype game because if anyone were to do that in a real game would be sadly disappointed in the misses they will be making and quit on the game of billiards because of an illusion this app creates. Anyone who actually plays billiards in REAL LIFE and are new to pool and want to learn I don't recommend this game for you. This will not teach you how to play but to depend on getting lucky even more then playing pool on uneven tables at Bars. There are plenty better options out there like "Cue Billiard Club: 8 Ball Pool & Snooker" and "8 Ball Pool-Billiards" to name a few. This app will rob you of enjoying and learning from a great sport like Billiards with lucky phantom shots that you will never perform in REAL LIFE, including pros can't even make those shots, and constant frustration.
Glitches or intentional?
by SampsonD on 2017/10/12 21:08
I like the different game goals (rings) and the look of different tables and options it gives, but other than that I’m not impressed. One problem is it doesn’t match you with players in your “ranking or experience”. A beginner may end up with an opponent that has been classified as a pro or better, depending on how long they’ve been playing. Also too many interruptions when playing with challenger banners or wanting you to challenge your FB friends. The cue stick charges don’t last through a game if you have a bad break then you may have to recharge more than once for consistent shots and that’s in addition to placing a bet. The balls sometimes can hang half over a pocket to drop then it jolts back towards the table, but the cue can too often roll with ease for a scratch. It’s just a bit fishy when you AND your opponents ball should have dropped but jolts back from the hole. There are a few more minor issues that are annoying like not being able to type your own text for chat. I’d rather it was emojis than some of the stupid pretext messages and then you have to buy more if you want to add some. Shows a lot of greed. Plus it’s anybody’s guess as to who is going to break. If you play 5 games in a row with a different player each game you may not get to break on any of those even if you lost previously. All of this is even after purchasing the app. 🙄
Ok game
by Indyglf on 2017/11/24 15:39
It’s an ok game. Usually just play to pass time while sitting around. Game constantly wants you to buy in app purchases, not going to happen. Why would anyone spend their money to buy coins not like you’re winning real money. Your never going to win any decent amount of coins on your free daily spin because of course they immediately give you a chance to buy another spin. I sometimes wonder if they even give you the little bit of coins you do win because the game hides your total amount when you spin so unless you remember to check your total before you spin you never know if you get the actual coins. Game has some annoying glitches as well, like when you put a ball right in front of a pocket and the app moves the ball back away from it. This happens every game. Another annoying glitch is if you hit your last ball in and the 8 ball in on the same shot it gives the win to your opponent this should not be the case especially when your last ball goes in long before the 8 ball drops. Of course the main goal of this game is to make the developers loads of money so they are going to do everything in their power to get you to spend more money. Have never made any in app purchases and never will.
8 Ball Pool
by Katieball88 on 2018/01/25 02:54
By far the best game I’ve ever played. I started playing this game in 2011, stopped because I had forgot about it and then started it back up and everyday when I get off of work and get home I sit down and play to wind down and have a good time. I hardly ever win, (I mean my percentage is lower than 35%! Lol), but I still look forward to it everyday. I’m surprised that people have constantly stated that there is glitches and issues. I have played this game for years, across many different platforms and versions, NEVER HAVE I HAD ANY ISSUES, when the connection is having issues, it is my understanding that it is the internet connection of myself or my opponent, and in this kind of situation if you wait it out then you will become the winner at the end of time out. I assume that both parties are assumed winners and I think that is a great way to deal with any issues among players. I’m assuming that the people who complain are just sore losers, and can’t be ok with accepting a loss. I think it’s fun either way win or lose, but I do think that I should be better by now with all the time I have played haha.
Addictive
by Fastdraw78 on 2017/07/20 23:54
Great game! I have loved it and made it to the 90's in player level. Despite my love for this game I have recently dropped it from 5 to 4 stars and here is why. 1) it has become impossible for me to win consistently. I understand a players skill can fluctuate especially as you move up in rank. I just don't understand how I can go from having almost 2 million in coins and winning 100,000 coin games to being unable to consistently win 500 coin games. I don't trust computer programming because as you can see with the spinning wheel, it can easily be rigged. I don't trust organizations that make money from games like 8ball pool because what's to stop them from rigging the outcome of a players consistency. 2) like others I see connectivity issues. HOWEVER, I know they come from my wifi network. When I switch to cellular internet I do no have issues. Therefore I know where the problem is. The issue I have with the programming is that if I have a network loss the game will let me continue to the point where I even make a shot. Then all of a sudden my game goes back in time erases my shot and shows my opponent that I have timed out. Very strange
This game is RIGGED
by LorenzoGThomas on 2018/01/19 07:32
I gave it 2 stars because used to enjoy playing it. But once I started to jump on some of the deals (.99 cents - 1.99) things changed. I started getting cheated out of games. There is no way I will be able to explain all that has happened for people to get an understanding of what I mean. I just can’t understand the physical logic of how I can be “right next” to the 8 ball on the last shot (say bottom left pocket) and I would literally just “tap” that ball..I mean literally JUST TAP it and that cue ball would bounce 2 rails and scratch on me on the opposite end of the table...there was not that much power put into the shot for that to have happened and yet it has happened multiple times over and over and over...please understand me when I say I TAPPED that ball, I mean I moved that cue stick the shortest amount possible...no one will get it so I will stop trying to explain it... but I feel cheated here, game was fun, but there are tooooo many physical impossibilities I have seen and cheating is going on...then they put you up against higher rated players...like a 20 level would be placed up against a 125..I mean seriously? It’s like they are setting you up to lose all the time so you will spend more..after I leave this review I am deleting this rigged and cheat of a game
This app is greedy
by Mikeosmon on 2018/01/30 16:37
Seems like a lot of players have a great advantage over me like there is some kind of cheat they're using. I would like the ability to block players I feel are using cheats. I enjoy playing it a lot but they try to milk any penny they can from you which is pretty annoying. Every day you get a chance to win free coins and over years now it never pays out any significant prizes, like never even enough to cover entry for a single game of pool. I have spun over 500 times and only 1 time the prize was over 1k coins, only maybe 5 times over 500 coins. It sure teases you plenty though. Also why do I have to be a Facebook user to have my own picture instead of your lame avatars? They're seriously ridiculous and I like none of them, but if I sign up for Facebook then I can use my own face? That's retarded and apparently so is miniclip. F Mark Zuckerberg and f miniclip for being in cahoots with fb. Also why can't I just chat with people directly, why do I have to use your lame chat packs? There isn't a single thing in them that I'd actually say to someone I was playing pool against irl
Two two bad stay poor my friends
by Houndog Kevo on 2018/02/15 20:00
I’ve given reviews of your game in the past very good ones in fact not in hopes that it would get me any kind of special treatment or anything because I realize the reviews are prolly not even looked at at this point by the ppl pulling the strings at miniclip your game has been out for a while now and ppl form their own opinion regardless of reviews. So you don’t care I get it you are rich off all us playing your stupid game. I can’t in good consensus give this game a good review with all the problems it has. You allow ppl to run cheat apps along side the game we are constantly being cheated out the coins. The things ppl complain about are all true. This game instead of being fun makes allot of ppl angry. Without banking something in the neighborhood of a billion coins which would cost an exorbitant amount of real money ppl literally can’t enjoy anything in the game past the Tokyo table. That is a shame considering all that went into making the game. The cue pieces alone are like works of art, and the creative ways in which the game progresses is impressive. I’ve already spent like two or three hundred dollars just to briefly check the game out past Toronto other than that it’s over for me I’m not one of the ones in on the scam to keep us all poor so have fun at the top with your little game.
Dont play this game!!! Its incredibly rigged!
by Minecart11 YouTube on 2017/11/03 18:57
In every game you play, the app decides if you win or not. If you play an all in game, they will put you up against level 150s when you are level 13 so they make sure that you lose all of your chips so you have to buy more or wait an hour for 30 chips. The daily spin and wins are rigged as well. You always land on either 150 or 250 no matter what since it always starts on the same number. Even if you play against your friends in real time, the balls will defy all laws of physics. DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON THIS GAME!!! THAT IS WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO DO. Do not buy the special cues! It costs the price you bought to “recharge the cue” to be able to put cue spin on the cue ball. There is also the most obvious evidence that it is rigged: Your balls bounce out of the pockets while the opponent’s won’t. Just install an app like GamePigeon or Pool Break Lite to play pool with your friends or online. You might think it isn’t rigged at first because thats how they bring in new players. Once you start playing more often, they will start making you lose for reasons like “potting the 8 ball” when none of the balls hit it. I have RECORDED evidence of this. If you post about it on their support fourms they will ignore you or even go as far as deleting it. Anyway that was my rant on this terrible game.
Handicaps You to BUY!!
by Doc4772 on 2018/02/02 13:37
Terrible, suppose to be a game where a person can have fun and compete. It’s nothing but a way to earn money without charging to get the app. Example, when I first got on here, winning was easy. My shots lined up and I had no problem beating people as long as I took my time and lined the angles properly. Now that I got a taste of victory and 4 rings all the sudden the same angles don’t work. I scratch more times here than at real pool and my opponent is hard shooting, breaking a cluster and his ball is finding a pocket without a scratch, not the case for me at all, maybe in the beginning. Now down to no coins and having to wait to play the 50 coin table I am tempted to by special offers etc. I will not!! This is a really sad way to make money when they have a ton of advertising going on. Really sad that you get handicapped to lure you to spend for a stupid free game!!! I’m done with it!! Update!!! Played the worst hit the balls as hard as he could on every turn and never scratched, and was able to pocket a rack. I play with precision and take my time, hit very lightly most of the time and I scratched 4 times not counting the break so 5. Piece of crap game that only makes me mad that I get beat by an idiot because this game is a fraud. DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME!!!
Great game but kinda upset about losing my coins!
by CalSni87 on 2018/02/10 04:01
I’ve been playing for a few weeks now and I’ve really enjoyed this game! The only complaint I have is losing my coins after winning a game and not receiving my bet coins or my winning coins back after the game has been won. This has happened quite a few times to me and is getting really frustrating. I’d really like for the developer to hook me up with my coins or something if possible, but we all know that most developers don’t read these comments so I doubt I’ll see them. If it continues to happen I’m going to have to move to a different game because building up coins and then losing them so easily is not cool at all. I’m going to hang in there for a few and see what happens. Hopefully I get all of my winnings from now on and maybe one day my coins will magically re-appear. Overall I love the game and I’m definitely addicted to it. It’s great for a free game and even better if you have the spare money to buy coins, upgrades, cues, and everything else.
Used to be a fun game
by Nneyaa on 2017/08/21 14:48
I used to be addicted to this game. Spending real money on coins for cool cues and everything. First. There's no personalization just playing endless games which cost tons of coins! Just to loose ALL THE TIME. The luck to skill ratio is WAYYY OFF. Why have levels if they aren't going to reflect the actual talent of the person playing. You have pool sharks who are "level 2" making you think you have a fighting chance. then you loose the entire game. Or you have beginners who are level "100" come & miss every shot & you win. I don't understand. Go back to the old game. It made more sense & was fun to play. Third why must EVERY game cost coins just to play? Sometimes you end up paying just to loose. Sounds just like a stupid casino scheme to me. Also like I mentioned if the level is "supposed" to reflect you're "talent" why am I level 30 being paired with level 2 or level 60 players? Half the time level 60 players have better cues & when just based on the fact they have a greater aim! Not because they can actually play pool.
"Lost Connection"
by gadam.7272 on 2017/10/05 03:55
Fun game. However the "lost connection" is getting to be very annoying. You make a shot lose connection and when game "reconnects" your faced with clock time running out your shot not made causing you to lose the turn. On several occasions costing me the game. For a while I believed ok yeah I lost connection but doesn't happen all the time just in certain situations. So I started thinking maybe it's the other player somehow causing the lost connection cause it doesn't happen to them. Not sure what is actually going on. Would have given 5 stars if this "lost connection" wasn't so upsetting. Update: Enjoying more now with the new update. Finally you can challenge in 9 ball. And you get to change the wager. Glad they listen to their customers and improve where needed. Update: Since the new update like that are offering new pool sticks. But there seems to be a glitch since then. When I am first to break there's a pause or while in the middle of a shot.
🎱BALL
by Doc 1962 on 2017/12/21 08:23
3 Stars ✨ would give you 5 but I can only be honest the more I play the more I learn I've been playing for a long time seems like the payoffs get smaller and smaller invested in the game no doubt and I do like the game I would play it a lot more often if it paid off more then it does especially on the mini games spend 150,200,75, what is up with that give me a break every once in a blue moon you give me a bone ! Could it be I'm this unlucky maybe ? When I first started out thanks were different ? Of course I will continue playing the game because I am hooked on it but I do think you need to look into some of the bugs in the game specially when it comes to the mini games i don't get much return for the effort that I put in it. Like I think I should but let's face it I've been playing it for years and it's not like I'm going to quit playing so give me a freaking break ! Let's play eight ball 🎱!!!!!! And by the way I do like the new changes but what's the time deal on him when you got a wait eight hours or three hours sure you're not going to answer me so I guess that's it you get three stars ✨
Ok
by Shovster on 2017/10/04 21:06
I play a lot of "real" pool and I'm considered to be a good player so I speak from experience when I say although I find the game to be fun, it is in some ways not very realistic. My biggest issue is the constant scratching when there's no way it should happen, (I'm a 61% shooter but subtract all the games I've lost do to unnecessary scratches I'd be in the 70s) part of the issue is that the balls can travel way farther then on a real table, it's hard to bank 5 rails on real table but could probably go 10 rails with the game!. Another big issue is the angles a ball can be cut, there's no way to cut over 90 degrees but with the game u can make impossible cuts making playing defense much harder! Also think when the cue ball is on the rail or up against another ball you shouldn't be able to use low English like in a real game. Another thing that drives me nuts is I'm usually trying to play for 10 mil but way to often it makes me play a game for as low as a $100, when there's 4000 played surly there's a player that could play for more!,...That being said I still like to play but the game needs tweaked a little
Be warned, this game is rigged
by WillMcCullough on 2017/12/05 02:12
Fair warning, this game is rigged to drain you of coins. Thousands of players have attempted to report this phenomenon to the developer with no luck. The most common observation is that if you win or purchase coins, you will end up with a massive losing streak. Once you find yourself losing massively, the game will offer you more coins at a discounted rate. Many have observed that this game has bots posing as real players. They’ve proven this by looking up the profiles for the “player” only to find that they have a high win ratio and very low play time. There are tip offs for the bots. Most bots start matches with incredibly creepy positive encouragement. They will often repeat statements like “you can do it” (paraphrasing) several times in a row. If you send back chat messages, the responses never make sense. The most major tell is that real players who’ve been around and have played several hundred games cannot achieve higher than a 40-55% win ratio. Once you begin winning, the game will unfairly match you to much higher level players or bots. The goal of this developer is to keep you buying coins regularly.
Good App but has issues
by Me9w on 2017/12/16 02:50
The app is fun and a nice little time waster but I’ve noticed that at random times, when I win a 100 coin bet table, I’m 500 coins short. Basically, the game takes 500 coins of mine even though I won a game. The most recent example was: I played 9 Ball and bet 100. I had 8,135 before the game started. betting 100 left me with 8,035. I played through the game and won. When I got out of the game, my coin status was 7,535 (with my winnings). The game took 500 coins of mine. It’s also happened before. It’s happened a total of 10 times and the game doesn’t appear to have a customer support so I’m writing it here. The game also has some issues when it comes to loading. There have been at least 2 times when I entered a game, the app froze up. First time I waited for 10 minutes til I restarted the app. Second time I waited 5 minutes. Both times, when I returned, it reported that I won the game (as I had an extra amount of what I bet). So the game is fun, but it has issues.
I'm getting screwed over and cheated when I make a purchase
by Hustler 13 on 2017/11/03 15:14
I enjoy playing the game But not happy when my winnings disappeared when I'm not even playing @ night because I'm asleep . It doesn't make any sense to me . Now I buy spins & they disappeared before I used them also after playing a game & having already paid for the addition 5000 disappeared on top of that ! I love the game other then getting shorted on the time when it's my shot & loose shots do to slow connection also ! THANK YOU FOR THE FEEDBACK ! I NO LONGER CARE FOR YOUR GAME AFTER NINE MONTHS OF PLAYING IT AND ALL THE SUDDEN YOUR SCREWING ME OUT OF COINS AND SPINS AND NOW I WAS #1yesterday with OVER 150,000 IN WINNINGS IN CHAMPIONSHIP AND I WAKE UP AND YOU F------ ME OVER AGAIN YOU NEED TO GET YOUR STUFF TOGETHER OF YOU GUYS HAVE A GOOD IDEA BUT YOUR GOING SCREW THIS UP FOR YOURSELF, I’m Disappointed that I’m not receiving the credit for gifts sent to me that when I’m playing people are interrupting my game you no longer send me gifts, and I’ve been playing for years I also play Real Pool so , and when I’m not asking for gifts I do Not like looking like a Beggar! Hope you Also can start giving me more than small amounts when I spin Thank you Very Much

by Steven_keuker on 2017/09/16 00:07
Love the game but just letting you developers know to please issue a update to patch this bug or glitch that I and others have been experiencing so lately I have been trying to play your fun game but within 5-10 seconds of being in the app it has been booting me out but the app doesn't disappear or crash it's still active in the background and I try to get back in it again and it does the same thing over and over again and I can't play at all or even be in the app for more then seconds without this issue reoccurring my friend also has an I phone 6+ mine is a 7+ and he is experiencing the same issues I wanted to make sure that it wasn't my phone malfunctioning or overheating but this is the only app he or I have been having issues with please help thank you keep up the good work 👍👍👍 p.s. I have tried restarting my iPhone and even deleting then re downloading the app but no changes so far
9 ball needs fixing
by infestedchris on 2017/10/01 01:10
I love 9 ball but i think it needs better rules. Its based on luck 100%. The thing that is so unfair about 9 ball is that it pairs you with someone that bid the same amount of coins. But I am level 19 and i get paired with people level 50+. Its unfair when people have these god sticks with time added to there stick. 9 ball is based on speed, so every shot you make chunks the timer. But people with time on their sticks get plenty of time to take there shots. Then after they take there shots there time gets almost reset entirely. Its not fair to use sticks that add time to a game that is time sensitive. Another thing that makes the games so unpleasant is that there needs to be a call 9 ball shot. Sick of games where people are just slapping balls around and just so happen they get lucky and sink the 9 ball by mistake. Its a good game mode but completely unfair and not balanced what so ever. I love 9 ball way more than 8 ball at the moment. It just pisses me off when people win by mistake.
Not the best update.
by rhoblidnen on 2017/12/13 22:39
This is the best pool game I have played on any platform, in terms of the physics of the balls. However, I think this update is getting a bit gimmicky. I was already a bit sceptical of the VIP Points system, and the new Rings seem pointless, and are clearly just an attempt to get more people to make in-app purchases. The worst thing, though, is the guidelines being put back into the two highest tournaments. There are already plenty of other places to play a game with guidelines, there was no need to change that. There should have been at least another two higher priced guideline free tournaments put in above them to compensate. The tournaments are no longer a challenge. EDIT: The latest update is even more annoying. Rental fees for matches now? Really? They’re virtual coins for crap’s sake! You’re essentially just lying about the prize money amount for that table. And these annoying prize boxes that give worthless cues that you have to upgrade. It’s just bringing in all the worst bits from the less popular Miniclip games.
Fun and addicting but....
by Shoemanshoe on 2017/12/13 17:17
The only thing I don't like is you have to earn points to play.. I would rather pay $3 or $5 for a good game I can play online.. This way it does make it more interesting i guess but the stupid slot thing gives you a chance to win 50,000 or more pool coins and I have tried hundreds of times and never got more then 500.. It is set to give you less and that makes this kinda bs.. What would it hurt them to give you 30,000 pool coins? I am sure many people pay for money and keep them in the green. UPDATE because they won't stop asking me to rate it even though I already did... The wheel thing to win money or stuff is worse now.. I have seen the thing slowing to stop I a big number and the go past it REAL slow. I would rather not even have this unfair wheel thing.i did get 1000 on it one time but most the time I get 52 or 12.... Fun game though. UPDATE AGAIN!!They keep asking me to update so here it the newest scam they are doing. When you watch a video to get 150 coins it gives the 150 a few times and lets you keep doing it but then only gives 15 coins even though it clearly says watch a video to get 150 coins. They have also added something that you can challenge your friends, friends. It will pop up looking like you have a challenge but it is telling you someone is on line and you can challenge them. I still play the game and like it but all this extra crap makes it worse. I would GLADLY pay $5 to have no ads and no pop up crap!
Could get better
by Mohammad Tohidi on 2017/10/15 23:45
I think 8 ball pool is a great game, but when it reaches to collecting boxes to use a cue, it takes a lot of cash and a lot of money to buy that cash to unlock cues. I think free offers are not as good as they are because you need to purchase or try something that requires paying. For kids who don't want to pay, or can't pay, I think choosing a easier way to get free cash could be better. For example, earning 8 free pool cash just by watching one video. I've been going the long way, which is by leveling up to earn cash, and it literally kills a lot of my time. Please add a free way for players to earn cash without having to purchase anything. I'm done with using tapjoy, and this is because I completed an offer, and when I went back to the 8 ball app, I literally earned nothing. Please take this rating as a consideration because most kids do not have a part time or full time job to buy or make purchases, and for those who can, maybe they have asked their parents to do them the favor.
Poor sportsmanship
by Warnertm on 2018/02/10 06:11
You need to set it up so people can't run the clock down when they can't make a shot during timed games by just shooting the cue in a pocket waiting for you to free their ball. Also when you get booted from a game because a glitch in the game and/or internet you shouldn’t loose your bet. I'm adding to this again, both myself and my girlfriend both have watched ur stupid videos a few times and haven't received our coins. What a joke. The more I play the less I like the way this game is set up. It freezes up and makes you loose your turn. Just more BS. Adding to this again, I was in the middle of a tournament and made my shot. But of course your dumb glitches took my turn and gave it to the other player. My shot was legal hitting my ball first and sinking it. What a joke, people play this for fun but never waste your hard earned cash on this company's games. Adding to this again, I’m playing the 20M game and win I win it only gives 19M it has done this multiple times and I’m guessing I just noticed but it has probably been take 5% on all the large bet games this whole time. You guys are a scam
1 year+ player
by Quadrunner007 on 2017/07/21 01:05
I have been playing this game for over a year, and now when I open the fan to play it will immediately knock me off of getting to play. I have spent money on it, but I got mad the other day because there opponents can quit the game when you have won, but if you try any of the stuff they get by with, it's wrong. I quit 3 games and I haven't been able to play since. Now it wants me to put a credit card number in before I can play. Can't even get the app anymore. Has to be the most roboted game I have ever seen when it comes to playing their opponents. Especially if you rank decent yourself. Might as well start a new game with a different name. Game is a joke. The higher you rank the less you have a chance to win. It's a fun game but the game is set up to make you spend money. It's really a competitive game. It definitely has game owner glitches to it. And I just keep coming back to play it.
Fun game, but glitches
by Baj71 on 2017/07/19 14:33
I play this game ALL the time. The only complaint I have is with a few glitches.. it seems like the rules that they give apply sometimes but not other times, even on the same level. For example, if I accidentally don't hit a ball hard enough and it doesn't hit the wall, the other person gets ball in hand. If the other person does the same thing in the same game, I don't get ball in hand. Super weird. Also, I just played a game where I had a hard time getting my shot on my ball, but I did get it there. I ended up making two of my balls, but the other player got ball in hand because it said I didn't hit my own ball, which I did. Also, sometimes the stick is very hard to balance and it wants to go in all sorts of direction. PLEASE fix these glitches because it's very frustrating and causes me to lose games. All in all, I do enjoy this game and will continue to play.
The game allows cheating
by Shawnsbabygirl on 2018/01/20 11:30
The game allows cheating with no way of reporting a player that cheats Cheats I mean like the game I just did I picked my ball and all Of a sudden the ball was back on the table and the cheater that used a after market cheat program got to shoot not only shoot it gives them ball in hand as well in this week alone it has happened at lease 3 out of 10 games and the makers r doing nothing about it and they have nothing in place to report but yet they make us recharger pool sticks and want us to buy in game purchases just so we can be cheated out of our money because there just looking to scam u in the game if ur smart u won’t download the game until they fix these problems or a way to report the player that’s cheating and it’s mostly people from outta the United States that do it and 90% of ur games r with them so there pretty much supporting the cheating
Loved it for years until I needed support...
by Victim #473 on 2017/08/12 11:54
All that play understand the quality of the experience. However, it seems as if the developers have decided to retire and continue to collect on in-app purchases. Imagine enjoying an awesome game for years... Then all of a sudden, your points don't show up in the leader board or weekly competitions that earn you in-app cash. You would assume reporting this bug would solve it, but unfortunately this is an issue other users run into. Either way, you report this within Miniclip, and it's crickets for weeks. (Still haven't heard anything). Honestly, service and support is what earns my business. Oh yeah, and btw, I land on a measly $100 every day I spin. Oddly enough, the chances of me landing on the same plot of the wheel day in and day out makes the powerball look like a 50/50 raffle. **Update: It looks like the issue resolved itself. I'm adding a star for this, but still not been contacted as the automated response said I would.
8 Ball Pool
by LewGri on 2017/11/15 18:26
I love the game. However, I have hit shots that have been negated, with the turn being given over to the opponent, causing me to lose games. Also, while believing I am playing an opponent, I was really playing the computer, under a opponents name. With this, the opponent's shot time is always wound down to the last seconds. Moreover, time has run punt on an opponent's shot, but his late shot will still count. While, if I run the clock-shot down to the limit, my shot is forfeited. When I am winning a game, the app always unnecessarily delays my shots. With these defects, it makes this game very unpleasant & stressful. However, I've seen no other pool app as realistic as this one. It's a shame such a virtually dynamic champion of an app/game, is ruined by the obvious disadvantages set-forth by the producers. Cheats on shots. Places balls u pot, back on table, & when u pot 8-ball on breaks, places it back on table. This is the most fun pool game, but it will (noticeably) cheat you out of games. If there was a more fun pool game, I would ditch this one in a heartbeat.
This game used to be fun
by Hans33steelers on 2018/02/06 19:13
This game is changing rapidly and becoming more and more pay to play. Now if you want to do anything you have to pay real money. Also I am quite sure that they use an algorithm that attempts to deplete the coin balances of players that have bought coins because as soon as you start getting a decent amount of coins, you all of a sudden can’t join a game unless it is against someone 100+ levels higher than you and with a 75% win percentage. Also thinks like breaking... I have used he same break in this game forever, but as soon as I paid, this break stopped potting balls. There have also been violations of the games physics, and bounces that just do not make sense and end up costing me a turn or even the game. Coincidentally, once this happens you start getting bombarded even more with the “Here’s a new deal! Buy more coins to level up!” So long story short, either don’t get the game or do not buy any coins. Because as soon as your name is in their system as someone who is willing to pay, your games will be rigged. Come on miniclip.
Get IT!
by Lk ny on 2017/07/17 18:33
Awesome awesome game there is one glitch, I just played a game , 200 coins , came down to my last ball, I made. The shot and also made the 8 ball, the game should have been mine but I lost the 200 coins, I sunk my ball first and planned to sink the 8 ball to, you don't have to call the pocket in this game. But otherwise it's the best game I've played and takes skill! One thing I don't like is people can leave you hanging for some reason,I can't nor do I want to, but while my shot clock is running , there's is stopped and you wait and wait and then they come back with no lost shot time! I do believe there are some cheaters out there! Just played a game with a player named Maicol , when it came my turn to shoot there was no pull back windows to draw the cue, so I ran out of time lost the game with no chance to shoot, Glitch ? Or cheat?
Trash.
by ImProbablyMad on 2017/10/22 22:30
Literally until you get thousands of coins, the game is a slop-fest where kids with no skill win games that they shouldn’t. The in-game physics change COMPLETELY from game to game. Zero consistency. I have been reduced to using the “beginner cue” because no matter what power level I select to shoot a shot with, there is zero consistency using a different cue from game to game. In addition, I lost 12 games in a row because I wasn’t allowed to break a SINGLE TIME. As a result, my opponents ran the table without me be allowed to shoot. 12 games? Without breaking? Come on. I grind and grind to get coins, then at no fault of my own, because I’m not allowed to break and run the table for 12 games in a row, I lose 99% of my coins. Really. If you have installed, uninstall. If you haven’t downloaded yet, don’t waste your time. The ENTIRE team responsible for the coding in this game should be fired. Literally trash physics coding, trash matchmaking, and trash equality algorithms. Just trash. Don’t waste your time. Miniclip is a company full of absolute idiots who shouldn’t have jobs. Literal trash human beings.
Great game.
by Butterhumms on 2017/11/23 01:38
This is an excellent game and I would recommend it if you like playing pool. I have it both on my phone and my IPad. Sometimes it is frustrating but that's only when I shoot like crap but when I'm on it's great as with anything. When you play 1 on 1 it matches you with someone who is very close, if not the same level as yourself. In a tournament it pits you against people of all different levels which is fine. Overall I am addicted. I have been playing this game since it came out. Anyone who tries to compare this game to real life pool is out of their mind but for learning a few basics it’s fine. Playing with English on this game gives you a good indication of what it would do on a real table. I play this and real pool on leagues and tournaments. Just don’t be like some people and expect an app to imitate real life.
Update has a minor flaw
by CriticizingGuy on 2018/01/13 02:08
Enjoyed the game until I updated with the latest version. Had no idea why, with this new version, I had pool table rails and pockets that didn’t line up correctly. It was only after I disabled zoom on my phone that the game became usable again. Please make an update to the update that accounts for phones with zoom enabled. The old version worked flawlessly, except for the glitches that have already been discussed in numerous other reviews. Do this and I’ll change my review accordingly. As of now, I’m out $10 because I lost all my chips fiddle-farting with this glitch. Update: Thanks for fixing the glitch. Now, could someone please work on fixing the timer? It seems as though I (and my opponents) don’t always get the allotted time to shoot a ball. This is very annoying at times, especially when it boils down to the last shot. Thanks!
Pure crap after update
by lasher1027 on 2017/08/13 17:37
I liked this game when I was bored for a long time. After this update, if you win too much without paying real money for currency, it starts glitching and doing weird things like disconnecting you after to run the table and are about to win giving winning shot to opponent or the cue ball just suddenly changes direction to make you scratch over and over and over. You have to win 80 percent of your games to break even after what you lose from glitches and being disconnected when close to winning. I read reviews with others complaining of this but now I saw it for myself. They purposely make you lose if you get ahead by winning instead of buying in game cash. Went from fun game to one that makes me want to throw my iPad at the wall. My brand new Samsung tablet with only 1 other app on it crashes with this game before I even join a table over and over. I never spent $ on this game and it most def won't happen by robbing me with bullsh$t programming to drain my money. Nice try kill yourself 8ball pool
The pool is good, the extras... not so much.
by Chitown river scum on 2018/01/14 21:25
Contrary to what some bitter reviewers have said, the pool playing is actually not bad here, for a computer game. OBVIOUSLY, it's not going to be like playing on a real table, but anyone who would actually expect it to be so must have a few screws loose. Having said that, you will actually pick up some strategies that you can use in a real game... if you stick with it long enough. The "free spins" and other minigames ARE extremely misleading, and as in most games like this, are designed more to get you to spend money than to actually give you any gifts. The blue sectors (250 coins and under) only make up 33% of the wheel, but you will - guaranteed - land on them 80-90% of the time. Having taken a free spin perhaps seven, eight hundred times, I've only got over 1000 coins maybe twice. It's definitely rigged but then again, it doesn't cost anything, either... unless you choose to waste your money.
Download this instead of those other fancy games
by Nate boof on 2017/07/26 08:07
I've been playing this game on and off for years now and it still is one of my favorite games ever made for the iPhone, and one of the most used apps on my phone of over 100 apps/games. The gameplay physics are the most realistic I have ever seen from a pool game, and as an avid player of "real" pool/billiards i can safely say that this is probably as close as you can get to the real thing on a phone. The match play is great as you can play w friends from Facebook or online against people from around the world. The developers have added lots of unlockable gear that keep the game interesting, like cues, chatpacks, and skins. These can be purchased with ingame currency or real money. The only real downside and area i would ask developers to improve on is to make more features available without having to use real money. I have been playing for several years now and my in-game coins/cash accumulation is slow because i refuse to spend real cash on the game. Developers: please add more features and items that are reasonably priced and attainable through in-game currency. Longtime players like myself should not have to pay to keep playing. Otherwise great app and will provide years of entertainment, especially if you like pool like i do.
Game is a drug, bad for you but addictive
by DLG(13) on 2017/11/09 04:17
This game will make you want to kill the person you are playing against due to the amount of luck over actual skill! My story is that I reached a good amount of coins winning hard earned games putting me at a level of 50, and with that I ended up having 250K coins. Once you get to a high level and reach a fair amount of coins and risk it by playing a higher tier game you could get screwed over and lose almost all of your coins leading to anger which makes you lose focus and end up losing EVERYTHING! This game is rigged to make you lose all your coins and be stuck at the bottom again trying to beat the players at your skill level just to be able to reach the amount of coins to play in Tokyo! Sadly this happened to me and now I’m stuck at the bottom, already bought to sets of coins for 4.99 and that just doesn’t cut it because the players I play against are all good! Horrible game and needs to fix the luck over skill ratio.
8 Ball Pool
by Game master barryboy on 2017/12/20 06:02
This is by far the best pool game in the App Store. You can watch videos to get more coins, you have a variety of different pool sticks to choose from, you have a wheel to spin for more coins,the sound of the game is also spot on. A variety of pool games to pick from,including tournaments. Your status goes up the more you win. The more you win the more coins you get. You have to pay coins to play. I’ve been playing for awhile now and still love the game. I guess I love competing with players from all over the world. If you enjoy playing pool than this is the game for you. Much thanks to the makers of this game. There are also bundles that you can purchase that will give you many coins, bonus games to win coins,and hot avatars as well as hot pool sticks. You can also upgrade your pool stick too. Thumbs up.👍
Forget all the other reviews!
by Lord Iz on 2018/02/16 01:09
Forget what everyone else says. What an honest review? Sit down put your feet up and stay with me ok?...here it goes... the ads can get annoying and the mini games are definitely fixed! But at the same time the game is called “8 ball pool”... did you expect a billiard game or an arcade. If you want a good cue just lvl up for coins and cash! All the players on here are real people...thats right no computer players. Ive been playing for a few years now.. im lvl 105 with a 60.6 win average. I still lose some matches to a lvl 49 but thats the name of the game. If you miss a shot it could cost you the game. If you dont like other pulling off nonsense luck shots... play “call your pocket matches” or “ no guideline matches. If you cant play its not the game fault.. pull up your panties and stop complaining!!
Liars and Cheaters!
by Pranayam on 2017/11/19 01:07
Miniclip is an absolutely greedy, selfish, and dishonest company. First of all, any luck-based minigames are always against the player. On the spin-the-wheel minigame, it ALWAYS lands on low numbers. Second of all, every time I play an All-in match, I get assigned to an extremely high level player (like level 100), which is unfair. Also, there should not be cues that are objectively better than other cues, because things like aim and power should be determined by the player's skill, not what stick they have. Most importantly, the offers are completely dishonest. The offers that claim to reward you if you complete a "quick" survey or download and run an app are FALSE! The surveys never seem to end, and when they do, you don't get the coins you were promised. When you download and run the app for the coins you were offered, it STILL doesn't give you the coins. The offers are my biggest complaint about the game. Terrible game. And whoever made the physics should be fired. Tapjoy is the main greedy one in this app.
Fun with glitches
by Stutzyboy! on 2017/07/13 11:11
Best game available yet the server errors distract consistently to cause loss of games. As most will find this game has a connection issue consistently, it times out causing you to miss a shot. I've had a game completely crash it's not on my side with my Wi-Fi, it's simply the game itself. Some improvements such as less monetary pop ups, they're always asking for money for this or that. It is getting extremely annoying. Also the pool rules are not the official rules. The setting of the cue ball after scratch and the added benefit, per se having the directional lines associate with the Q Ball make the game a little too easy it would be nice if there is a way to play games with out this added benefits to be more difficult except on the highest matches. Developers need to work on this game a little more. Revised to one star as I have lost on a simple eight ball and nine ball at least a dozen times because of time out due to their server error.
Pool by Braille
by Hot-stuff on 2017/12/17 01:13
The Braille 8 Ball Pool Game. New name for this old favorite that I have loved and played almost daily for 6 years. They “improved” it because, well, it just makes sense, doesn’t it? So ya just take a few people who have not the faintest idea what they’re doing...and turn’em loose. First thing they did was hide the holes. Yep, all 6 of ‘em. Can’t find them. They’re in deep dark shadow and ya can’t see them. Just have to shoot where ya think they might be. Makes sense for a precision game like pool, dontcha think? Oh, and wanna keep track of how many balls each player has fired off blind? Can’t do it. Sorry. Once the ball is sunk on a lucky shot, no way to tell how many of each player’s balls have been sunk. Well, you get the point. The 8 Ball Pool game that we’ve come to play and love is just gone. It only takes a small group of fools to screw up most anything and they really did a job on our favorite pool game. It’ll be defunct in a month or two. Just wait. Meantime, check out all the other pool games we can play on our phones.
5 stars but on flawless...
by kiry1968 on 2017/07/16 12:11
I admit I'm absolutely addicted to this game! It's just part of my life! I try to faithfully collect my free coins hourly. Pros: 1) Tons of fun! 2) I like talking trash while playing! 3) I enjoy leveling-up. 4) It's nice collecting rings. Cons: 1) Too many glitches/crashes which lead to me losing my turn or the game!! 2) Trickery regarding accidental clicking on highest games when swiping through the cities! It's set up to trick you into playing a high level game you'll probably lose and end up buying more coins! Silly rabbit...tricks are for kids! Shame on the developers for this!!! 3) Seems like fake players on challenges --Lowest level opponents play like Pool Sharks with random numbered names. 4) Some days it's just set up for you to lose EVERY FREAKING GAME! You're CLEARLY lined-up shot may time-out, miss impossibly so, or simply skip your turn and say, " your time ran out, or maybe when I go to touch your cue, it reads that you didn't hit the ball and I just takes your shot away from you 😭! All-in-all, I'm thoroughly addicted and will probably never stop playing... But PLEASE: Fix some of these annoying issues !
Fun, but not fun
by Thankful1199 on 2017/10/13 10:57
This could be a great game, but here’s some issues: In the middle of game play, it cuts completely out. You’re back to the main screen which is loading. Sometimes you return to the game, sometimes you don’t. So you’ve just lost coins It can take forever to earn bucks. I only have 8 and it’s been like that for the past year. The spinning wheel at the beginning will never let you win anything higher than 250. Most of the times you’ll land on something less than that. You can aim directly at a pocket with the correct amount of speed and the ball still doesn’t go in. This can be confusing to new players that need practice to help them on the real billiards game. The conversations could be opened up for all players instead of just friends. But I understand that is the game’s way of making money. You have to purchase a packet with pre-written words. That’s annoying. I would give the game a 5 star if this allowed you to talk freely because it’s more fun communicating with people that are going through the same thing as you while playing. However, as you continue to play, you are matched up according to who’s online and your skill level. That’s fun. You do learn more about the game of billiards as you continue to play. The game is still a good game when it doesn’t mess up.
Great game!
by Was great :-/ on 2017/11/23 05:13
Very realistic play! Not perfect but quite close, great physics algorithm, I wish you could type in your own chat. My cash and coins keep disappearing though, I don't spend real money on it so no big deal, I just like the game, annoying though, I've started a couple tickets in complaint, got a response they say they're looking into it so just waiting to hear back, oh well fun game anyway... REVIEW UPDATE They respond but act like they’ve never heard of this before and they want you to take screen shots of your coins disappearing, I just had 7 coins disappear from my account, no big deal because I don’t spend any money on the game, just a warning to all who want to spend there hard earned money on coins or cash in this game because they will disappear and miniclip will fain complete ignorance, while they flakily take your money. You’ve been warned, play it but don’t pay it!
Few issues!
by Ain't too proud to beg on 2017/11/29 17:02
Great app game as I play a lot of pool for real. My criticism is when having to call a pocket for the eight ball you should be able to eye up your shot in order to pick the best shot before having to choose a pocket. That bugs the crap out of me that you have to choose the pocket first. In 9 ball it is ridiculous to have your shot clock extremely shortened because you are running the table so by the time you get to the 9 ball you have to 2 seconds to shoot! That’s absurd! Then if you miss the shot because you were so rushed your opponent gets the full shot clock to pick his nose, make a sandwich, then shoot the 9 ball to win. I don’t mind a shortened clock but 2 seconds is ridiculous!! There is also some sort of glitch in 8 ball in at least the 100k game where two different times, coincidentally both the 14 ball was made successfully but turned the shot over to the opponent. In both cases I lost the game. Very frustrating!!
Powerball
by KMattel on 2017/12/20 21:08
Why this game gives out ‘mystery boxes’ I dont know. The coins are pitiful, the free cues are beginner cues. WHY BOTHER!! This ‘Shot Timer’ is ridiculous!! It SHOULD NOT be applied to the ‘NO AIM LINES’ games. If I am good enuff to pot balls by my own aiming, there is no need to shorten the timing of each shot! By the 5th or 6th ball potted, I have less and less time to shoot. In 9 Ball, Too many games are lost because I had to rush a shot. I pot 7-8 balls then the timer cuts me off, giving the game to the opponent. In the games of 'call each pocket' let the player look at the shot first before making a decision.! Also Some balls look the same and seeing if the shot is Solids or Stripes will help ..... the table tops are WAY TOO FAST ! No table has that much run, unless it is a glass top and NO felt!! Slow the tables DOWN ! even 10% less would be an IMPROVEMENT!!
This game blows
by poppadickchicken on 2018/01/11 14:28
I’ve been playing this game for way longer than I should have been playing it. Going on probably 2 years now and in those 2 years I’ve never won anything higher than 250 coins on the daily spin. I even broke down and spent real money on this garbage and still never got anything good back. The games are rigged. I’m level 47 and I got matched with a level 150. How is that even fair? Then there’s times I barely pull back on the stick and it just smashes the ball for no reason. Also the rules for this game aren’t even right. It’d be cool if the rules actually matched the rules you’d have in a real life pool league instead of just being able to smash balls around or the bs ball in hand you get when the ball doesn’t go in the pocket that was called. The creators of this game need to do some research on real life pool leagues. This game is garbage and I wouldn’t waste your time or money on it. 0 stars for you chumps but of course they won’t let you so you have to give 1 star. Garbage.

This is a wonderful game to play with friends & kill time. Lately I launch the app and it closes me out. Am using on iPhone 8 Plus. Please fix this bug issue.
Worst app ever
by Big balls in town889 on 2018/02/20 20:20
If you are skilled forget it. This app is for those that buy coins.I first started using it several years back. I was locked out and they just refused to help. Finally after 2 years of trying they let me sign back in .No support is available. period.Just a simple fact they have no support system.This games is about high paid for cues. Then you just shot anywhere and balls magically fly in the cups. Some times right through your own balls
GREAT GAME
by Country Boy14 on 2018/02/20 19:45
It’s not perfect, but it’s as close to the real thing as I’ve ever seen. My guess is that people that are complaining don’t grasp the fundamentals of real pool. Force, action, reaction & English. Do yourself a favor & get some Legendary Cue’s. It will cost you about $10. You buy cash & then purchase the Legendary cue boxes for cue pieces. The benefit is you never have to use coins to refuel cue for full performance as well as better aim etc. **ONLY COMPLAINT IS THEIR ISN’T A 50 MILLION COIN 9 BALL GAME**. WHY DO 8 BALL PLAYERS BENEFIT & 9 BALL PLAYERS DON’T❓ Make it to where you have to bank the 9 or obviously on the break. Charge the rental fee just like the 8 ball games. Look forward to playing like the big boys. This 20 Million isn’t fair for us trying to compete in the weekly competition‼️ THANKS

Rigged to a Horrible Extent
by Gamer8391 on 2018/02/20 18:24
8 Ball Pool, at first glance, is a fun and fair game that all people can enjoy. However, I was severely mistaken. This game is nothing but a way to make dirty money. For example, today I had three thousand coins, and managed to go on a four game losing streak, losing all of my currency. To make matters worse, my final loss was to a level 119 player, which is extremely unfair being only a level 25 player currently. And so, Miniclip uses this game in hopes of victims to buy their useless currency in order to fully enjoy the game. Thank you.

I love it! Call your pocket games kills the luck shots. Your friends can challenge you if they have the nerves. I love shooting the big balls in 8 ball. The wife keeps the end of my stick chalked. She loves big balls as well. Come play!

Problems getting in
by Mashock on 2018/02/20 07:26
Each time I open it, I get booted out after 6 to 11 seconds. I keep losing any spins, etc. I don’t want to delete it and lose all my data with the game, not to mention, I just bought a bunch of coins yesterday! Please help fix it!
The app crashes constantly, SPECIALLY after in-app purchases. VERY FRUSTRATING
by burningmax on 2018/02/20 07:10
The game push you to buy coins via in-app purchases (read also other negative reviews) but, what is worst, tends to crash continuosly. The most frustrating times are when you are winnig a game or a tournament, or even worst when you purchase coins to enter a game and, just a couple of shoots after, it crashes and cancels the game - but of course the credit is gone!!! This is very wrong and, by reading others reviews, I see that it happens to many players. Less than an hour ago I have spent 1.99$ for a stack of coins but I could just enter 2 tournaments (the first crashed right after my successful breaking, the second as I was about to win the first round) and a 1-to-1.game (that crashed at half game, again I was winning). Basically I had pretty much the entire purchaed credit blown with three consecutive crashes over no more than 3-4 minutes. The iTunes App Editorial Team should block the in-app purchases until the crash bug is fixed, and also force the app developers to review the crash logs, and refund all credits unjustly swallowed by such crashes.
Dont Bother

This was my favorite app. I was playing almost every day. Now it won’t stay active for more than 15 seconds and it crashes. Need to fix this issue to get 5 stars.
Worlds number one pool game
by j 8 ball on 2018/02/20 01:21
I started out having a lot of fun playing the game but once I had purchased some coins one time it would make you lose say you would continuously buy more coins. The game is definitely not consistent when you are shooting. Computer makes you lose so you buy more coins.
Rewards
by Miks D. on 2018/02/19 23:18
There should be more rewards for leveling up. I still only get 1 dollar each time, and I just reached 100. It says you get more points for purchasing, but then doesn’t give you the money to buy anything.
Love/Hate
by Little me with many friends on 2018/02/19 21:06
I love the game when it loads and work, it is almost a tease, it works just long enough for me to get involved and then it disconnects or shuts down. Then i must restart the game, if I’m in the middle of a game, I just lost... I’m tired of this but I love the game. So what should I do ?

Great game,,,only negatives are that u can't chat except with friends. And it has a lot of pop ups trying to sell,,,,coins , better pool cues etc. but you aren't required to buy anything. So, for a free game. It's still worth it.

The Spinning Wheel of Chance on 8 Ball Pool
by Thompson837 on 2018/02/19 18:25
Hey Fellow Players help support my theory. Do you play pool a lot? If so do you win higher numbers on The Spinning Wheel of Chance higher than 75, 150, 250, 500 consistently. I think there is a direct correlation between the two. I have been playing this game for years. If The Spinning Wheel of Chance is any indication of how the pool game is run. I have hit $150 dollars 7 times in a row many, many, times. And the second spin if you get it, not being knocked out by an ad, is always half of the first spin. Now the new thing is you can spin for 99 cents a chance to win up to 1,000,000 point chips. No matter what you spin it’s going to be rigged and you get to pay money for the privilege. The Spinning Wheel is supposed to be a Wheel of Chance. Not a fixed Wheel. I know not winning points is supposed to get you to buy points. But I think the opposite is true if you win more points you do more.
can’t play unless you pay!
by npighioere on 2018/02/19 18:14
After about playing for 50 games and getting to level 10, I was not allowed to play anymore games, a pop up saying to buy more coins would show any time I wanted to play. Now I had to delete and redownload just so I could play without paying 2$ for coins. Stupid!!!!
Chat
by SaifSarwarKhan on 2018/02/19 17:30
Hi, add a full chat feature like the top seller game “LudoStar”. Otherwise the game is super awesome to play and doesn't have a single glitch, runs like a charm!

Great job Miniclip, I am currently 11 years old and level 20 and have 60k coins. I love this game so much! 9 ball and tournaments are the best! Keep it up, great job!!!
Fun Game, but....
by MinaRL* on 2018/02/19 15:32
It is a fun game, great setup to easily be able to play your friends. I agree with another reviewer, spin and win game, I have never gotten better than 500 chips. You have to be careful when you are scrolling to play a game, you can accidentally play a higher stakes game, the game does not give you an option to cancel.
Game keep crashing
by yzlh on 2018/02/19 14:58
The game is too simplified compared to real games. Was going to rate it 3 stars. Since a few days ago, it just kept crashing on my iPhone. So now it’s only worth 1 star...

If you are looking for a way to pass/waste time this is it. The skill needed is a great as you want to use but anyone con win,the rules are orthodox although I’ve never heard of a lot of them. Overall it’s a good game.

by Yamadre on 2018/02/19 01:13
Since a while the game keeps on crashing after a minute or so. Yes my IOS version is update, yes I have the latest game version, yes I have enough space on my Iphone and wireless works just fine. Where can I get a refund for my coins? And I did not rate 5 stars but 1 star. It automatically selects 5 stars.

Fix the rules of the game
by superlogger1 on 2018/02/18 20:15
Why does your opponent not get penalized for not trying his last shot at the 8 ball. Instead just let the clock run out. If you don’t try a shot you should lose. Simple enough. If there’s no shot opportunity just let the clock run out you won’t get penalized for it.

by Bstan70rr on 2018/02/18 17:37
I cannot explain why I seem to have to play at least twenty games of 8Ball Pool a day. It is a well built app with nearly zero glitches. There is one annoying "bug", and it occurs when opponents can stall for time--either to distract, out of frustration of getting ready to lose, or a combination of both. It is a real annoying part of the game that would be easy to fix

For two days I have been getting kicked out of the game.
Cheating Game
by Mi Marlene on 2018/02/18 17:21
Doesn't give you the correct amount of money you win nor does it take out the right amount you bet. I feel it's hacked n or rigged. The total I have before getting out of game is never the same as when I return. Fix your cheating game

The game is fun but...
by Ronbo13 on 2018/02/18 17:07
The game is fun but be very careful. There's some seriously dishonest BS going on. There is a wheel of fortune you can spin for rewards. You can spin once a day for free, then you pay 99c for additional spins. I have 2 iPads. I've been playing this game for a month. The spins are not random. One iPad almost always gets a "250" and the other almost always gets a "150". Each one got a result in the thousands early on, to trick you into wanting more. If this was a casino, this kind of behavior would end up with someone in handcuffs. I'm surprised it's considered okay just because it's an app.

There is not much to say about a digital game that is based off of gambling. Most buy their way to victory so don’t waste your time or money. This game is totally rigged, so that you will want to spend real money on a terrible game. Don’t download!!!😡😡😡

Can’t play anymore on account the app randomly closes. Sometimes before I get into a game, sometimes after. Down 1mil b/c closed twice just after the break. By the time I get back in, I’ve forfeited my dinaro. I keep testing now with cheap $100 games; nothing has changed tho. Just keeps closing. Waiting for another bug-fixing-update.

8 Ball Pool
by Drpoker777 on 2018/02/17 22:23
Best APP ever!!! Best app whereby your skill as a real pool player transfers well to playing this game (e.g., use of English). Difficult to play initially without spending $, given you have to pay to play (cues cost you points beyond the points you bet on the game, per game played), yet once you have a legendary cue, the app pays you to play, or you earn points whether you are winning or losing. Suggested changes, from my point of view would be: 1) more ways to earn cash. 2) weekend tourneys that only pay the top 100, should pay more like a poker tournament, whereby the number of payouts increase with the number of players entered. Addictive for sure. Love playing players from Europe, the Middle East, Far East, South America... Thanks, Dr. Powell
Too much luck.
by DrRob8091 on 2018/02/17 19:25
There needs to be a rule change that if you scratch three times in a row, you lose the game. Too often, people who don’t want to open up the table just sit there and won’t break or won’t take a shot at all. Can literally do it all day. Changing the rule to three strikes in a row and you lose would fix this.
It won’t let me make an account

Wth miniclip?
by Kenzi713 on 2018/02/17 17:53
I’ve had this game for almost 3 years across various devices-despite being shorted on at least one purchase and one item purchased with in game cash. Whenever I have tried to report an issue it is not resolved or even responded to. I have made my issues known by contacting through email, Facebook and message boards. The only reasons I have continued to play is the variety of players and in game options. Now I can’t even play. Every time I open the app it crashes. Both my phone and the app have the latest updates available. I tried emailing customer service but I don’t even think it went through because it redirected me to a blank page upon completion-multiple times. Normally-even with the bad customer service I would still give the game 3 stars but not being able to play is ridiculous. Fix the problem already!

I paid for two packs in the game and only received items from one of them, and no where in game is there a customer support page nor is there one on website that’s shown in App Store.
Shotty
by Kal710 on 2018/02/17 10:06
I’ve been playing this game for months, meanwhile, I’ve experienced a dozen glitches or more. All resulting in losing “coins” which is basically the objective of the game; it’s safe to say I’ve lost well over 1,000,000 coins due to glitches such as the game freezing, shutting down, or just simply not registering the move I just made and in turn losing my turn which results in a lost match. It’s just frustrating at best.
More of a pool game for kids, wouldn’t recommend who like competitive games
by Big Daddy Long John on 2018/02/17 09:21
How about in tournaments when a player has no balls left and just has to pot the 8 ball, you stop the stupid 3 min timer. I lost too many matches after running all over someone and then with only 3 seconds left, the game just ends and that’s it lol. Fix it please. And sloppy shots make the game more luck based than skilled. You should also have to call the 8 ball. With sloppy crazy shots counting, it makes the game fun for about 30 mins and then gets cartoonish almost. Not realistic or competitive by any means....

I will say this game used to be fun , at least it used to be when what I believed the description they printed to lure players in. They must have no conscience taking money people fork over to purchase coins or cues. I hope doesn’t take new players long before they realize that their not playing human opponents. It’s only make believe!! So, as long as you don’t give these people money, and if you don’t mind playing a phony opponent well go for it, enjoy and have yourself some fun! As for myself, I was furious when I got ripped offI I felt like such a fool because I had sent money to purchase coins to play fake opponents as well as robbed of my coins. I mean, how stupid can I be? The little so-called glitches they called them, oh yeah they were glitches all right. They were fixed all right, fixed to better hide more thieving ways to take your money spent on coins!! How could I be so trusting!??? How stupid, sending money! Then I said, “Hmmmm🤔,” I can practice! Easy, download it, play till ya run out of coins, delete it, then download it again, delete, download, delete, download… ya get my point? I know I’m just giving my finger some exercise by typing all this because none of my ‘warning reviews’ have been printed, oh wait just a second, the very first one. Oh yea, I forgot, it was a positive review!! Yee-Haw!! I feel bad for all of us who found out the truth about this game, especially if they paid $$$ to these cheating, lying, greedy developers. Oh well, my fingers have had enough exercise. Maybe this review will slip by if someone isn’t paying attention...🤥 This is a joke! I know I’d probably get in some deep **** if I mention the name of any apps, but I did find a couple pool games that are legitimate. They are truly more fun and challenging. Oh and your opponent, they have a pulse!!🤣Much better graphics too!! If ya got money to burn, next time you have a bonfire just throw it in there and watch it burn, burn baby burn!!! ☮️Peace

Used to enjoy the game. Luck to skill ratio getting worse. Now, game will load, but after about 6 seconds, closes off the app. Can’t play anything! 😡

I have been addicted to this game for months but now it crashes within about 20 seconds of opening. I haven’t been able to play in over 2 weeks now
MY FAVORITE GAME EVER!!! But.....
by The pixel god on 2018/02/17 02:51
This game is absolutely amazing but when you use the cues it has a battery and you have to keep repaying it it kills the game in a way but still is my favorite game!!! Good job!!

This game is amazing!
I love this game !
by rainripples on 2018/02/17 02:03
It has been so much fun playing this game over the past 6 months and building my skill level. It has just the right balance of skill and randomness, just have to wade through the pop ups at the beginning.
This game

is very nice.
Don't waste your time!
by Poolstudent on 2017/08/08 13:29
This is the one of the all time worst games I have ever played in my life! The luck to skill ratio has to be 1352 to 1. I know it's just a game app and it is not the real game but the amount of all I have to do it hit the balls hard and anything goes in is crazy. It would be fine if the app was letting it work both ways but it doesn't. There has been numerous times when my opponent could barely see their object ball and was able to get it in a pocket by only hitting it hard, no spin at all, and not even scratching or completely not getting it in a pocket and perfectly set up for the next shot. If anything it's a hype game because if anyone were to do that in a real game would be sadly disappointed in the misses they will be making and quit on the game of billiards because of an illusion this app creates. Anyone who actually plays billiards in REAL LIFE and are new to pool and want to learn I don't recommend this game for you. This will not teach you how to play but to depend on getting lucky even more then playing pool on uneven tables at Bars. There are plenty better options out there like "Cue Billiard Club: 8 Ball Pool & Snooker" and "8 Ball Pool-Billiards" to name a few. This app will rob you of enjoying and learning from a great sport like Billiards with lucky phantom shots that you will never perform in REAL LIFE, including pros can't even make those shots, and constant frustration.
Glitches or intentional?
by SampsonD on 2017/10/12 21:08
I like the different game goals (rings) and the look of different tables and options it gives, but other than that I’m not impressed. One problem is it doesn’t match you with players in your “ranking or experience”. A beginner may end up with an opponent that has been classified as a pro or better, depending on how long they’ve been playing. Also too many interruptions when playing with challenger banners or wanting you to challenge your FB friends. The cue stick charges don’t last through a game if you have a bad break then you may have to recharge more than once for consistent shots and that’s in addition to placing a bet. The balls sometimes can hang half over a pocket to drop then it jolts back towards the table, but the cue can too often roll with ease for a scratch. It’s just a bit fishy when you AND your opponents ball should have dropped but jolts back from the hole. There are a few more minor issues that are annoying like not being able to type your own text for chat. I’d rather it was emojis than some of the stupid pretext messages and then you have to buy more if you want to add some. Shows a lot of greed. Plus it’s anybody’s guess as to who is going to break. If you play 5 games in a row with a different player each game you may not get to break on any of those even if you lost previously. All of this is even after purchasing the app. 🙄
Ok game
by Indyglf on 2017/11/24 15:39
It’s an ok game. Usually just play to pass time while sitting around. Game constantly wants you to buy in app purchases, not going to happen. Why would anyone spend their money to buy coins not like you’re winning real money. Your never going to win any decent amount of coins on your free daily spin because of course they immediately give you a chance to buy another spin. I sometimes wonder if they even give you the little bit of coins you do win because the game hides your total amount when you spin so unless you remember to check your total before you spin you never know if you get the actual coins. Game has some annoying glitches as well, like when you put a ball right in front of a pocket and the app moves the ball back away from it. This happens every game. Another annoying glitch is if you hit your last ball in and the 8 ball in on the same shot it gives the win to your opponent this should not be the case especially when your last ball goes in long before the 8 ball drops. Of course the main goal of this game is to make the developers loads of money so they are going to do everything in their power to get you to spend more money. Have never made any in app purchases and never will.
8 Ball Pool
by Katieball88 on 2018/01/25 02:54
By far the best game I’ve ever played. I started playing this game in 2011, stopped because I had forgot about it and then started it back up and everyday when I get off of work and get home I sit down and play to wind down and have a good time. I hardly ever win, (I mean my percentage is lower than 35%! Lol), but I still look forward to it everyday. I’m surprised that people have constantly stated that there is glitches and issues. I have played this game for years, across many different platforms and versions, NEVER HAVE I HAD ANY ISSUES, when the connection is having issues, it is my understanding that it is the internet connection of myself or my opponent, and in this kind of situation if you wait it out then you will become the winner at the end of time out. I assume that both parties are assumed winners and I think that is a great way to deal with any issues among players. I’m assuming that the people who complain are just sore losers, and can’t be ok with accepting a loss. I think it’s fun either way win or lose, but I do think that I should be better by now with all the time I have played haha.
Addictive
by Fastdraw78 on 2017/07/20 23:54
Great game! I have loved it and made it to the 90's in player level. Despite my love for this game I have recently dropped it from 5 to 4 stars and here is why. 1) it has become impossible for me to win consistently. I understand a players skill can fluctuate especially as you move up in rank. I just don't understand how I can go from having almost 2 million in coins and winning 100,000 coin games to being unable to consistently win 500 coin games. I don't trust computer programming because as you can see with the spinning wheel, it can easily be rigged. I don't trust organizations that make money from games like 8ball pool because what's to stop them from rigging the outcome of a players consistency. 2) like others I see connectivity issues. HOWEVER, I know they come from my wifi network. When I switch to cellular internet I do no have issues. Therefore I know where the problem is. The issue I have with the programming is that if I have a network loss the game will let me continue to the point where I even make a shot. Then all of a sudden my game goes back in time erases my shot and shows my opponent that I have timed out. Very strange
This game is RIGGED
by LorenzoGThomas on 2018/01/19 07:32
I gave it 2 stars because used to enjoy playing it. But once I started to jump on some of the deals (.99 cents - 1.99) things changed. I started getting cheated out of games. There is no way I will be able to explain all that has happened for people to get an understanding of what I mean. I just can’t understand the physical logic of how I can be “right next” to the 8 ball on the last shot (say bottom left pocket) and I would literally just “tap” that ball..I mean literally JUST TAP it and that cue ball would bounce 2 rails and scratch on me on the opposite end of the table...there was not that much power put into the shot for that to have happened and yet it has happened multiple times over and over and over...please understand me when I say I TAPPED that ball, I mean I moved that cue stick the shortest amount possible...no one will get it so I will stop trying to explain it... but I feel cheated here, game was fun, but there are tooooo many physical impossibilities I have seen and cheating is going on...then they put you up against higher rated players...like a 20 level would be placed up against a 125..I mean seriously? It’s like they are setting you up to lose all the time so you will spend more..after I leave this review I am deleting this rigged and cheat of a game
This app is greedy
by Mikeosmon on 2018/01/30 16:37
Seems like a lot of players have a great advantage over me like there is some kind of cheat they're using. I would like the ability to block players I feel are using cheats. I enjoy playing it a lot but they try to milk any penny they can from you which is pretty annoying. Every day you get a chance to win free coins and over years now it never pays out any significant prizes, like never even enough to cover entry for a single game of pool. I have spun over 500 times and only 1 time the prize was over 1k coins, only maybe 5 times over 500 coins. It sure teases you plenty though. Also why do I have to be a Facebook user to have my own picture instead of your lame avatars? They're seriously ridiculous and I like none of them, but if I sign up for Facebook then I can use my own face? That's retarded and apparently so is miniclip. F Mark Zuckerberg and f miniclip for being in cahoots with fb. Also why can't I just chat with people directly, why do I have to use your lame chat packs? There isn't a single thing in them that I'd actually say to someone I was playing pool against irl
Two two bad stay poor my friends
by Houndog Kevo on 2018/02/15 20:00
I’ve given reviews of your game in the past very good ones in fact not in hopes that it would get me any kind of special treatment or anything because I realize the reviews are prolly not even looked at at this point by the ppl pulling the strings at miniclip your game has been out for a while now and ppl form their own opinion regardless of reviews. So you don’t care I get it you are rich off all us playing your stupid game. I can’t in good consensus give this game a good review with all the problems it has. You allow ppl to run cheat apps along side the game we are constantly being cheated out the coins. The things ppl complain about are all true. This game instead of being fun makes allot of ppl angry. Without banking something in the neighborhood of a billion coins which would cost an exorbitant amount of real money ppl literally can’t enjoy anything in the game past the Tokyo table. That is a shame considering all that went into making the game. The cue pieces alone are like works of art, and the creative ways in which the game progresses is impressive. I’ve already spent like two or three hundred dollars just to briefly check the game out past Toronto other than that it’s over for me I’m not one of the ones in on the scam to keep us all poor so have fun at the top with your little game.
Dont play this game!!! Its incredibly rigged!
by Minecart11 YouTube on 2017/11/03 18:57
In every game you play, the app decides if you win or not. If you play an all in game, they will put you up against level 150s when you are level 13 so they make sure that you lose all of your chips so you have to buy more or wait an hour for 30 chips. The daily spin and wins are rigged as well. You always land on either 150 or 250 no matter what since it always starts on the same number. Even if you play against your friends in real time, the balls will defy all laws of physics. DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON THIS GAME!!! THAT IS WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO DO. Do not buy the special cues! It costs the price you bought to “recharge the cue” to be able to put cue spin on the cue ball. There is also the most obvious evidence that it is rigged: Your balls bounce out of the pockets while the opponent’s won’t. Just install an app like GamePigeon or Pool Break Lite to play pool with your friends or online. You might think it isn’t rigged at first because thats how they bring in new players. Once you start playing more often, they will start making you lose for reasons like “potting the 8 ball” when none of the balls hit it. I have RECORDED evidence of this. If you post about it on their support fourms they will ignore you or even go as far as deleting it. Anyway that was my rant on this terrible game.
Handicaps You to BUY!!
by Doc4772 on 2018/02/02 13:37
Terrible, suppose to be a game where a person can have fun and compete. It’s nothing but a way to earn money without charging to get the app. Example, when I first got on here, winning was easy. My shots lined up and I had no problem beating people as long as I took my time and lined the angles properly. Now that I got a taste of victory and 4 rings all the sudden the same angles don’t work. I scratch more times here than at real pool and my opponent is hard shooting, breaking a cluster and his ball is finding a pocket without a scratch, not the case for me at all, maybe in the beginning. Now down to no coins and having to wait to play the 50 coin table I am tempted to by special offers etc. I will not!! This is a really sad way to make money when they have a ton of advertising going on. Really sad that you get handicapped to lure you to spend for a stupid free game!!! I’m done with it!! Update!!! Played the worst hit the balls as hard as he could on every turn and never scratched, and was able to pocket a rack. I play with precision and take my time, hit very lightly most of the time and I scratched 4 times not counting the break so 5. Piece of crap game that only makes me mad that I get beat by an idiot because this game is a fraud. DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME!!!
Great game but kinda upset about losing my coins!
by CalSni87 on 2018/02/10 04:01
I’ve been playing for a few weeks now and I’ve really enjoyed this game! The only complaint I have is losing my coins after winning a game and not receiving my bet coins or my winning coins back after the game has been won. This has happened quite a few times to me and is getting really frustrating. I’d really like for the developer to hook me up with my coins or something if possible, but we all know that most developers don’t read these comments so I doubt I’ll see them. If it continues to happen I’m going to have to move to a different game because building up coins and then losing them so easily is not cool at all. I’m going to hang in there for a few and see what happens. Hopefully I get all of my winnings from now on and maybe one day my coins will magically re-appear. Overall I love the game and I’m definitely addicted to it. It’s great for a free game and even better if you have the spare money to buy coins, upgrades, cues, and everything else.
Used to be a fun game
by Nneyaa on 2017/08/21 14:48
I used to be addicted to this game. Spending real money on coins for cool cues and everything. First. There's no personalization just playing endless games which cost tons of coins! Just to loose ALL THE TIME. The luck to skill ratio is WAYYY OFF. Why have levels if they aren't going to reflect the actual talent of the person playing. You have pool sharks who are "level 2" making you think you have a fighting chance. then you loose the entire game. Or you have beginners who are level "100" come & miss every shot & you win. I don't understand. Go back to the old game. It made more sense & was fun to play. Third why must EVERY game cost coins just to play? Sometimes you end up paying just to loose. Sounds just like a stupid casino scheme to me. Also like I mentioned if the level is "supposed" to reflect you're "talent" why am I level 30 being paired with level 2 or level 60 players? Half the time level 60 players have better cues & when just based on the fact they have a greater aim! Not because they can actually play pool.
"Lost Connection"
by gadam.7272 on 2017/10/05 03:55
Fun game. However the "lost connection" is getting to be very annoying. You make a shot lose connection and when game "reconnects" your faced with clock time running out your shot not made causing you to lose the turn. On several occasions costing me the game. For a while I believed ok yeah I lost connection but doesn't happen all the time just in certain situations. So I started thinking maybe it's the other player somehow causing the lost connection cause it doesn't happen to them. Not sure what is actually going on. Would have given 5 stars if this "lost connection" wasn't so upsetting. Update: Enjoying more now with the new update. Finally you can challenge in 9 ball. And you get to change the wager. Glad they listen to their customers and improve where needed. Update: Since the new update like that are offering new pool sticks. But there seems to be a glitch since then. When I am first to break there's a pause or while in the middle of a shot.
🎱BALL
by Doc 1962 on 2017/12/21 08:23
3 Stars ✨ would give you 5 but I can only be honest the more I play the more I learn I've been playing for a long time seems like the payoffs get smaller and smaller invested in the game no doubt and I do like the game I would play it a lot more often if it paid off more then it does especially on the mini games spend 150,200,75, what is up with that give me a break every once in a blue moon you give me a bone ! Could it be I'm this unlucky maybe ? When I first started out thanks were different ? Of course I will continue playing the game because I am hooked on it but I do think you need to look into some of the bugs in the game specially when it comes to the mini games i don't get much return for the effort that I put in it. Like I think I should but let's face it I've been playing it for years and it's not like I'm going to quit playing so give me a freaking break ! Let's play eight ball 🎱!!!!!! And by the way I do like the new changes but what's the time deal on him when you got a wait eight hours or three hours sure you're not going to answer me so I guess that's it you get three stars ✨
Ok
by Shovster on 2017/10/04 21:06
I play a lot of "real" pool and I'm considered to be a good player so I speak from experience when I say although I find the game to be fun, it is in some ways not very realistic. My biggest issue is the constant scratching when there's no way it should happen, (I'm a 61% shooter but subtract all the games I've lost do to unnecessary scratches I'd be in the 70s) part of the issue is that the balls can travel way farther then on a real table, it's hard to bank 5 rails on real table but could probably go 10 rails with the game!. Another big issue is the angles a ball can be cut, there's no way to cut over 90 degrees but with the game u can make impossible cuts making playing defense much harder! Also think when the cue ball is on the rail or up against another ball you shouldn't be able to use low English like in a real game. Another thing that drives me nuts is I'm usually trying to play for 10 mil but way to often it makes me play a game for as low as a $100, when there's 4000 played surly there's a player that could play for more!,...That being said I still like to play but the game needs tweaked a little
Be warned, this game is rigged
by WillMcCullough on 2017/12/05 02:12
Fair warning, this game is rigged to drain you of coins. Thousands of players have attempted to report this phenomenon to the developer with no luck. The most common observation is that if you win or purchase coins, you will end up with a massive losing streak. Once you find yourself losing massively, the game will offer you more coins at a discounted rate. Many have observed that this game has bots posing as real players. They’ve proven this by looking up the profiles for the “player” only to find that they have a high win ratio and very low play time. There are tip offs for the bots. Most bots start matches with incredibly creepy positive encouragement. They will often repeat statements like “you can do it” (paraphrasing) several times in a row. If you send back chat messages, the responses never make sense. The most major tell is that real players who’ve been around and have played several hundred games cannot achieve higher than a 40-55% win ratio. Once you begin winning, the game will unfairly match you to much higher level players or bots. The goal of this developer is to keep you buying coins regularly.
Good App but has issues
by Me9w on 2017/12/16 02:50
The app is fun and a nice little time waster but I’ve noticed that at random times, when I win a 100 coin bet table, I’m 500 coins short. Basically, the game takes 500 coins of mine even though I won a game. The most recent example was: I played 9 Ball and bet 100. I had 8,135 before the game started. betting 100 left me with 8,035. I played through the game and won. When I got out of the game, my coin status was 7,535 (with my winnings). The game took 500 coins of mine. It’s also happened before. It’s happened a total of 10 times and the game doesn’t appear to have a customer support so I’m writing it here. The game also has some issues when it comes to loading. There have been at least 2 times when I entered a game, the app froze up. First time I waited for 10 minutes til I restarted the app. Second time I waited 5 minutes. Both times, when I returned, it reported that I won the game (as I had an extra amount of what I bet). So the game is fun, but it has issues.
I'm getting screwed over and cheated when I make a purchase
by Hustler 13 on 2017/11/03 15:14
I enjoy playing the game But not happy when my winnings disappeared when I'm not even playing @ night because I'm asleep . It doesn't make any sense to me . Now I buy spins & they disappeared before I used them also after playing a game & having already paid for the addition 5000 disappeared on top of that ! I love the game other then getting shorted on the time when it's my shot & loose shots do to slow connection also ! THANK YOU FOR THE FEEDBACK ! I NO LONGER CARE FOR YOUR GAME AFTER NINE MONTHS OF PLAYING IT AND ALL THE SUDDEN YOUR SCREWING ME OUT OF COINS AND SPINS AND NOW I WAS #1yesterday with OVER 150,000 IN WINNINGS IN CHAMPIONSHIP AND I WAKE UP AND YOU F------ ME OVER AGAIN YOU NEED TO GET YOUR STUFF TOGETHER OF YOU GUYS HAVE A GOOD IDEA BUT YOUR GOING SCREW THIS UP FOR YOURSELF, I’m Disappointed that I’m not receiving the credit for gifts sent to me that when I’m playing people are interrupting my game you no longer send me gifts, and I’ve been playing for years I also play Real Pool so , and when I’m not asking for gifts I do Not like looking like a Beggar! Hope you Also can start giving me more than small amounts when I spin Thank you Very Much

by Steven_keuker on 2017/09/16 00:07
Love the game but just letting you developers know to please issue a update to patch this bug or glitch that I and others have been experiencing so lately I have been trying to play your fun game but within 5-10 seconds of being in the app it has been booting me out but the app doesn't disappear or crash it's still active in the background and I try to get back in it again and it does the same thing over and over again and I can't play at all or even be in the app for more then seconds without this issue reoccurring my friend also has an I phone 6+ mine is a 7+ and he is experiencing the same issues I wanted to make sure that it wasn't my phone malfunctioning or overheating but this is the only app he or I have been having issues with please help thank you keep up the good work 👍👍👍 p.s. I have tried restarting my iPhone and even deleting then re downloading the app but no changes so far
9 ball needs fixing
by infestedchris on 2017/10/01 01:10
I love 9 ball but i think it needs better rules. Its based on luck 100%. The thing that is so unfair about 9 ball is that it pairs you with someone that bid the same amount of coins. But I am level 19 and i get paired with people level 50+. Its unfair when people have these god sticks with time added to there stick. 9 ball is based on speed, so every shot you make chunks the timer. But people with time on their sticks get plenty of time to take there shots. Then after they take there shots there time gets almost reset entirely. Its not fair to use sticks that add time to a game that is time sensitive. Another thing that makes the games so unpleasant is that there needs to be a call 9 ball shot. Sick of games where people are just slapping balls around and just so happen they get lucky and sink the 9 ball by mistake. Its a good game mode but completely unfair and not balanced what so ever. I love 9 ball way more than 8 ball at the moment. It just pisses me off when people win by mistake.
Not the best update.
by rhoblidnen on 2017/12/13 22:39
This is the best pool game I have played on any platform, in terms of the physics of the balls. However, I think this update is getting a bit gimmicky. I was already a bit sceptical of the VIP Points system, and the new Rings seem pointless, and are clearly just an attempt to get more people to make in-app purchases. The worst thing, though, is the guidelines being put back into the two highest tournaments. There are already plenty of other places to play a game with guidelines, there was no need to change that. There should have been at least another two higher priced guideline free tournaments put in above them to compensate. The tournaments are no longer a challenge. EDIT: The latest update is even more annoying. Rental fees for matches now? Really? They’re virtual coins for crap’s sake! You’re essentially just lying about the prize money amount for that table. And these annoying prize boxes that give worthless cues that you have to upgrade. It’s just bringing in all the worst bits from the less popular Miniclip games.
Fun and addicting but....
by Shoemanshoe on 2017/12/13 17:17
The only thing I don't like is you have to earn points to play.. I would rather pay $3 or $5 for a good game I can play online.. This way it does make it more interesting i guess but the stupid slot thing gives you a chance to win 50,000 or more pool coins and I have tried hundreds of times and never got more then 500.. It is set to give you less and that makes this kinda bs.. What would it hurt them to give you 30,000 pool coins? I am sure many people pay for money and keep them in the green. UPDATE because they won't stop asking me to rate it even though I already did... The wheel thing to win money or stuff is worse now.. I have seen the thing slowing to stop I a big number and the go past it REAL slow. I would rather not even have this unfair wheel thing.i did get 1000 on it one time but most the time I get 52 or 12.... Fun game though. UPDATE AGAIN!!They keep asking me to update so here it the newest scam they are doing. When you watch a video to get 150 coins it gives the 150 a few times and lets you keep doing it but then only gives 15 coins even though it clearly says watch a video to get 150 coins. They have also added something that you can challenge your friends, friends. It will pop up looking like you have a challenge but it is telling you someone is on line and you can challenge them. I still play the game and like it but all this extra crap makes it worse. I would GLADLY pay $5 to have no ads and no pop up crap!
Could get better
by Mohammad Tohidi on 2017/10/15 23:45
I think 8 ball pool is a great game, but when it reaches to collecting boxes to use a cue, it takes a lot of cash and a lot of money to buy that cash to unlock cues. I think free offers are not as good as they are because you need to purchase or try something that requires paying. For kids who don't want to pay, or can't pay, I think choosing a easier way to get free cash could be better. For example, earning 8 free pool cash just by watching one video. I've been going the long way, which is by leveling up to earn cash, and it literally kills a lot of my time. Please add a free way for players to earn cash without having to purchase anything. I'm done with using tapjoy, and this is because I completed an offer, and when I went back to the 8 ball app, I literally earned nothing. Please take this rating as a consideration because most kids do not have a part time or full time job to buy or make purchases, and for those who can, maybe they have asked their parents to do them the favor.
Poor sportsmanship
by Warnertm on 2018/02/10 06:11
You need to set it up so people can't run the clock down when they can't make a shot during timed games by just shooting the cue in a pocket waiting for you to free their ball. Also when you get booted from a game because a glitch in the game and/or internet you shouldn’t loose your bet. I'm adding to this again, both myself and my girlfriend both have watched ur stupid videos a few times and haven't received our coins. What a joke. The more I play the less I like the way this game is set up. It freezes up and makes you loose your turn. Just more BS. Adding to this again, I was in the middle of a tournament and made my shot. But of course your dumb glitches took my turn and gave it to the other player. My shot was legal hitting my ball first and sinking it. What a joke, people play this for fun but never waste your hard earned cash on this company's games. Adding to this again, I’m playing the 20M game and win I win it only gives 19M it has done this multiple times and I’m guessing I just noticed but it has probably been take 5% on all the large bet games this whole time. You guys are a scam
1 year+ player
by Quadrunner007 on 2017/07/21 01:05
I have been playing this game for over a year, and now when I open the fan to play it will immediately knock me off of getting to play. I have spent money on it, but I got mad the other day because there opponents can quit the game when you have won, but if you try any of the stuff they get by with, it's wrong. I quit 3 games and I haven't been able to play since. Now it wants me to put a credit card number in before I can play. Can't even get the app anymore. Has to be the most roboted game I have ever seen when it comes to playing their opponents. Especially if you rank decent yourself. Might as well start a new game with a different name. Game is a joke. The higher you rank the less you have a chance to win. It's a fun game but the game is set up to make you spend money. It's really a competitive game. It definitely has game owner glitches to it. And I just keep coming back to play it.
Fun game, but glitches
by Baj71 on 2017/07/19 14:33
I play this game ALL the time. The only complaint I have is with a few glitches.. it seems like the rules that they give apply sometimes but not other times, even on the same level. For example, if I accidentally don't hit a ball hard enough and it doesn't hit the wall, the other person gets ball in hand. If the other person does the same thing in the same game, I don't get ball in hand. Super weird. Also, I just played a game where I had a hard time getting my shot on my ball, but I did get it there. I ended up making two of my balls, but the other player got ball in hand because it said I didn't hit my own ball, which I did. Also, sometimes the stick is very hard to balance and it wants to go in all sorts of direction. PLEASE fix these glitches because it's very frustrating and causes me to lose games. All in all, I do enjoy this game and will continue to play.
The game allows cheating
by Shawnsbabygirl on 2018/01/20 11:30
The game allows cheating with no way of reporting a player that cheats Cheats I mean like the game I just did I picked my ball and all Of a sudden the ball was back on the table and the cheater that used a after market cheat program got to shoot not only shoot it gives them ball in hand as well in this week alone it has happened at lease 3 out of 10 games and the makers r doing nothing about it and they have nothing in place to report but yet they make us recharger pool sticks and want us to buy in game purchases just so we can be cheated out of our money because there just looking to scam u in the game if ur smart u won’t download the game until they fix these problems or a way to report the player that’s cheating and it’s mostly people from outta the United States that do it and 90% of ur games r with them so there pretty much supporting the cheating
Loved it for years until I needed support...
by Victim #473 on 2017/08/12 11:54
All that play understand the quality of the experience. However, it seems as if the developers have decided to retire and continue to collect on in-app purchases. Imagine enjoying an awesome game for years... Then all of a sudden, your points don't show up in the leader board or weekly competitions that earn you in-app cash. You would assume reporting this bug would solve it, but unfortunately this is an issue other users run into. Either way, you report this within Miniclip, and it's crickets for weeks. (Still haven't heard anything). Honestly, service and support is what earns my business. Oh yeah, and btw, I land on a measly $100 every day I spin. Oddly enough, the chances of me landing on the same plot of the wheel day in and day out makes the powerball look like a 50/50 raffle. **Update: It looks like the issue resolved itself. I'm adding a star for this, but still not been contacted as the automated response said I would.
8 Ball Pool
by LewGri on 2017/11/15 18:26
I love the game. However, I have hit shots that have been negated, with the turn being given over to the opponent, causing me to lose games. Also, while believing I am playing an opponent, I was really playing the computer, under a opponents name. With this, the opponent's shot time is always wound down to the last seconds. Moreover, time has run punt on an opponent's shot, but his late shot will still count. While, if I run the clock-shot down to the limit, my shot is forfeited. When I am winning a game, the app always unnecessarily delays my shots. With these defects, it makes this game very unpleasant & stressful. However, I've seen no other pool app as realistic as this one. It's a shame such a virtually dynamic champion of an app/game, is ruined by the obvious disadvantages set-forth by the producers. Cheats on shots. Places balls u pot, back on table, & when u pot 8-ball on breaks, places it back on table. This is the most fun pool game, but it will (noticeably) cheat you out of games. If there was a more fun pool game, I would ditch this one in a heartbeat.
This game used to be fun
by Hans33steelers on 2018/02/06 19:13
This game is changing rapidly and becoming more and more pay to play. Now if you want to do anything you have to pay real money. Also I am quite sure that they use an algorithm that attempts to deplete the coin balances of players that have bought coins because as soon as you start getting a decent amount of coins, you all of a sudden can’t join a game unless it is against someone 100+ levels higher than you and with a 75% win percentage. Also thinks like breaking... I have used he same break in this game forever, but as soon as I paid, this break stopped potting balls. There have also been violations of the games physics, and bounces that just do not make sense and end up costing me a turn or even the game. Coincidentally, once this happens you start getting bombarded even more with the “Here’s a new deal! Buy more coins to level up!” So long story short, either don’t get the game or do not buy any coins. Because as soon as your name is in their system as someone who is willing to pay, your games will be rigged. Come on miniclip.
Get IT!
by Lk ny on 2017/07/17 18:33
Awesome awesome game there is one glitch, I just played a game , 200 coins , came down to my last ball, I made. The shot and also made the 8 ball, the game should have been mine but I lost the 200 coins, I sunk my ball first and planned to sink the 8 ball to, you don't have to call the pocket in this game. But otherwise it's the best game I've played and takes skill! One thing I don't like is people can leave you hanging for some reason,I can't nor do I want to, but while my shot clock is running , there's is stopped and you wait and wait and then they come back with no lost shot time! I do believe there are some cheaters out there! Just played a game with a player named Maicol , when it came my turn to shoot there was no pull back windows to draw the cue, so I ran out of time lost the game with no chance to shoot, Glitch ? Or cheat?
Trash.
by ImProbablyMad on 2017/10/22 22:30
Literally until you get thousands of coins, the game is a slop-fest where kids with no skill win games that they shouldn’t. The in-game physics change COMPLETELY from game to game. Zero consistency. I have been reduced to using the “beginner cue” because no matter what power level I select to shoot a shot with, there is zero consistency using a different cue from game to game. In addition, I lost 12 games in a row because I wasn’t allowed to break a SINGLE TIME. As a result, my opponents ran the table without me be allowed to shoot. 12 games? Without breaking? Come on. I grind and grind to get coins, then at no fault of my own, because I’m not allowed to break and run the table for 12 games in a row, I lose 99% of my coins. Really. If you have installed, uninstall. If you haven’t downloaded yet, don’t waste your time. The ENTIRE team responsible for the coding in this game should be fired. Literally trash physics coding, trash matchmaking, and trash equality algorithms. Just trash. Don’t waste your time. Miniclip is a company full of absolute idiots who shouldn’t have jobs. Literal trash human beings.
Great game.
by Butterhumms on 2017/11/23 01:38
This is an excellent game and I would recommend it if you like playing pool. I have it both on my phone and my IPad. Sometimes it is frustrating but that's only when I shoot like crap but when I'm on it's great as with anything. When you play 1 on 1 it matches you with someone who is very close, if not the same level as yourself. In a tournament it pits you against people of all different levels which is fine. Overall I am addicted. I have been playing this game since it came out. Anyone who tries to compare this game to real life pool is out of their mind but for learning a few basics it’s fine. Playing with English on this game gives you a good indication of what it would do on a real table. I play this and real pool on leagues and tournaments. Just don’t be like some people and expect an app to imitate real life.
Update has a minor flaw
by CriticizingGuy on 2018/01/13 02:08
Enjoyed the game until I updated with the latest version. Had no idea why, with this new version, I had pool table rails and pockets that didn’t line up correctly. It was only after I disabled zoom on my phone that the game became usable again. Please make an update to the update that accounts for phones with zoom enabled. The old version worked flawlessly, except for the glitches that have already been discussed in numerous other reviews. Do this and I’ll change my review accordingly. As of now, I’m out $10 because I lost all my chips fiddle-farting with this glitch. Update: Thanks for fixing the glitch. Now, could someone please work on fixing the timer? It seems as though I (and my opponents) don’t always get the allotted time to shoot a ball. This is very annoying at times, especially when it boils down to the last shot. Thanks!
Pure crap after update
by lasher1027 on 2017/08/13 17:37
I liked this game when I was bored for a long time. After this update, if you win too much without paying real money for currency, it starts glitching and doing weird things like disconnecting you after to run the table and are about to win giving winning shot to opponent or the cue ball just suddenly changes direction to make you scratch over and over and over. You have to win 80 percent of your games to break even after what you lose from glitches and being disconnected when close to winning. I read reviews with others complaining of this but now I saw it for myself. They purposely make you lose if you get ahead by winning instead of buying in game cash. Went from fun game to one that makes me want to throw my iPad at the wall. My brand new Samsung tablet with only 1 other app on it crashes with this game before I even join a table over and over. I never spent $ on this game and it most def won't happen by robbing me with bullsh$t programming to drain my money. Nice try kill yourself 8ball pool
The pool is good, the extras... not so much.
by Chitown river scum on 2018/01/14 21:25
Contrary to what some bitter reviewers have said, the pool playing is actually not bad here, for a computer game. OBVIOUSLY, it's not going to be like playing on a real table, but anyone who would actually expect it to be so must have a few screws loose. Having said that, you will actually pick up some strategies that you can use in a real game... if you stick with it long enough. The "free spins" and other minigames ARE extremely misleading, and as in most games like this, are designed more to get you to spend money than to actually give you any gifts. The blue sectors (250 coins and under) only make up 33% of the wheel, but you will - guaranteed - land on them 80-90% of the time. Having taken a free spin perhaps seven, eight hundred times, I've only got over 1000 coins maybe twice. It's definitely rigged but then again, it doesn't cost anything, either... unless you choose to waste your money.
Download this instead of those other fancy games
by Nate boof on 2017/07/26 08:07
I've been playing this game on and off for years now and it still is one of my favorite games ever made for the iPhone, and one of the most used apps on my phone of over 100 apps/games. The gameplay physics are the most realistic I have ever seen from a pool game, and as an avid player of "real" pool/billiards i can safely say that this is probably as close as you can get to the real thing on a phone. The match play is great as you can play w friends from Facebook or online against people from around the world. The developers have added lots of unlockable gear that keep the game interesting, like cues, chatpacks, and skins. These can be purchased with ingame currency or real money. The only real downside and area i would ask developers to improve on is to make more features available without having to use real money. I have been playing for several years now and my in-game coins/cash accumulation is slow because i refuse to spend real cash on the game. Developers: please add more features and items that are reasonably priced and attainable through in-game currency. Longtime players like myself should not have to pay to keep playing. Otherwise great app and will provide years of entertainment, especially if you like pool like i do.
Game is a drug, bad for you but addictive
by DLG(13) on 2017/11/09 04:17
This game will make you want to kill the person you are playing against due to the amount of luck over actual skill! My story is that I reached a good amount of coins winning hard earned games putting me at a level of 50, and with that I ended up having 250K coins. Once you get to a high level and reach a fair amount of coins and risk it by playing a higher tier game you could get screwed over and lose almost all of your coins leading to anger which makes you lose focus and end up losing EVERYTHING! This game is rigged to make you lose all your coins and be stuck at the bottom again trying to beat the players at your skill level just to be able to reach the amount of coins to play in Tokyo! Sadly this happened to me and now I’m stuck at the bottom, already bought to sets of coins for 4.99 and that just doesn’t cut it because the players I play against are all good! Horrible game and needs to fix the luck over skill ratio.
8 Ball Pool
by Game master barryboy on 2017/12/20 06:02
This is by far the best pool game in the App Store. You can watch videos to get more coins, you have a variety of different pool sticks to choose from, you have a wheel to spin for more coins,the sound of the game is also spot on. A variety of pool games to pick from,including tournaments. Your status goes up the more you win. The more you win the more coins you get. You have to pay coins to play. I’ve been playing for awhile now and still love the game. I guess I love competing with players from all over the world. If you enjoy playing pool than this is the game for you. Much thanks to the makers of this game. There are also bundles that you can purchase that will give you many coins, bonus games to win coins,and hot avatars as well as hot pool sticks. You can also upgrade your pool stick too. Thumbs up.👍
Forget all the other reviews!
by Lord Iz on 2018/02/16 01:09
Forget what everyone else says. What an honest review? Sit down put your feet up and stay with me ok?...here it goes... the ads can get annoying and the mini games are definitely fixed! But at the same time the game is called “8 ball pool”... did you expect a billiard game or an arcade. If you want a good cue just lvl up for coins and cash! All the players on here are real people...thats right no computer players. Ive been playing for a few years now.. im lvl 105 with a 60.6 win average. I still lose some matches to a lvl 49 but thats the name of the game. If you miss a shot it could cost you the game. If you dont like other pulling off nonsense luck shots... play “call your pocket matches” or “ no guideline matches. If you cant play its not the game fault.. pull up your panties and stop complaining!!
Liars and Cheaters!
by Pranayam on 2017/11/19 01:07
Miniclip is an absolutely greedy, selfish, and dishonest company. First of all, any luck-based minigames are always against the player. On the spin-the-wheel minigame, it ALWAYS lands on low numbers. Second of all, every time I play an All-in match, I get assigned to an extremely high level player (like level 100), which is unfair. Also, there should not be cues that are objectively better than other cues, because things like aim and power should be determined by the player's skill, not what stick they have. Most importantly, the offers are completely dishonest. The offers that claim to reward you if you complete a "quick" survey or download and run an app are FALSE! The surveys never seem to end, and when they do, you don't get the coins you were promised. When you download and run the app for the coins you were offered, it STILL doesn't give you the coins. The offers are my biggest complaint about the game. Terrible game. And whoever made the physics should be fired. Tapjoy is the main greedy one in this app.
Fun with glitches
by Stutzyboy! on 2017/07/13 11:11
Best game available yet the server errors distract consistently to cause loss of games. As most will find this game has a connection issue consistently, it times out causing you to miss a shot. I've had a game completely crash it's not on my side with my Wi-Fi, it's simply the game itself. Some improvements such as less monetary pop ups, they're always asking for money for this or that. It is getting extremely annoying. Also the pool rules are not the official rules. The setting of the cue ball after scratch and the added benefit, per se having the directional lines associate with the Q Ball make the game a little too easy it would be nice if there is a way to play games with out this added benefits to be more difficult except on the highest matches. Developers need to work on this game a little more. Revised to one star as I have lost on a simple eight ball and nine ball at least a dozen times because of time out due to their server error.
Pool by Braille
by Hot-stuff on 2017/12/17 01:13
The Braille 8 Ball Pool Game. New name for this old favorite that I have loved and played almost daily for 6 years. They “improved” it because, well, it just makes sense, doesn’t it? So ya just take a few people who have not the faintest idea what they’re doing...and turn’em loose. First thing they did was hide the holes. Yep, all 6 of ‘em. Can’t find them. They’re in deep dark shadow and ya can’t see them. Just have to shoot where ya think they might be. Makes sense for a precision game like pool, dontcha think? Oh, and wanna keep track of how many balls each player has fired off blind? Can’t do it. Sorry. Once the ball is sunk on a lucky shot, no way to tell how many of each player’s balls have been sunk. Well, you get the point. The 8 Ball Pool game that we’ve come to play and love is just gone. It only takes a small group of fools to screw up most anything and they really did a job on our favorite pool game. It’ll be defunct in a month or two. Just wait. Meantime, check out all the other pool games we can play on our phones.
5 stars but on flawless...
by kiry1968 on 2017/07/16 12:11
I admit I'm absolutely addicted to this game! It's just part of my life! I try to faithfully collect my free coins hourly. Pros: 1) Tons of fun! 2) I like talking trash while playing! 3) I enjoy leveling-up. 4) It's nice collecting rings. Cons: 1) Too many glitches/crashes which lead to me losing my turn or the game!! 2) Trickery regarding accidental clicking on highest games when swiping through the cities! It's set up to trick you into playing a high level game you'll probably lose and end up buying more coins! Silly rabbit...tricks are for kids! Shame on the developers for this!!! 3) Seems like fake players on challenges --Lowest level opponents play like Pool Sharks with random numbered names. 4) Some days it's just set up for you to lose EVERY FREAKING GAME! You're CLEARLY lined-up shot may time-out, miss impossibly so, or simply skip your turn and say, " your time ran out, or maybe when I go to touch your cue, it reads that you didn't hit the ball and I just takes your shot away from you 😭! All-in-all, I'm thoroughly addicted and will probably never stop playing... But PLEASE: Fix some of these annoying issues !
Fun, but not fun
by Thankful1199 on 2017/10/13 10:57
This could be a great game, but here’s some issues: In the middle of game play, it cuts completely out. You’re back to the main screen which is loading. Sometimes you return to the game, sometimes you don’t. So you’ve just lost coins It can take forever to earn bucks. I only have 8 and it’s been like that for the past year. The spinning wheel at the beginning will never let you win anything higher than 250. Most of the times you’ll land on something less than that. You can aim directly at a pocket with the correct amount of speed and the ball still doesn’t go in. This can be confusing to new players that need practice to help them on the real billiards game. The conversations could be opened up for all players instead of just friends. But I understand that is the game’s way of making money. You have to purchase a packet with pre-written words. That’s annoying. I would give the game a 5 star if this allowed you to talk freely because it’s more fun communicating with people that are going through the same thing as you while playing. However, as you continue to play, you are matched up according to who’s online and your skill level. That’s fun. You do learn more about the game of billiards as you continue to play. The game is still a good game when it doesn’t mess up.
Great game!
by Was great :-/ on 2017/11/23 05:13
Very realistic play! Not perfect but quite close, great physics algorithm, I wish you could type in your own chat. My cash and coins keep disappearing though, I don't spend real money on it so no big deal, I just like the game, annoying though, I've started a couple tickets in complaint, got a response they say they're looking into it so just waiting to hear back, oh well fun game anyway... REVIEW UPDATE They respond but act like they’ve never heard of this before and they want you to take screen shots of your coins disappearing, I just had 7 coins disappear from my account, no big deal because I don’t spend any money on the game, just a warning to all who want to spend there hard earned money on coins or cash in this game because they will disappear and miniclip will fain complete ignorance, while they flakily take your money. You’ve been warned, play it but don’t pay it!
Few issues!
by Ain't too proud to beg on 2017/11/29 17:02
Great app game as I play a lot of pool for real. My criticism is when having to call a pocket for the eight ball you should be able to eye up your shot in order to pick the best shot before having to choose a pocket. That bugs the crap out of me that you have to choose the pocket first. In 9 ball it is ridiculous to have your shot clock extremely shortened because you are running the table so by the time you get to the 9 ball you have to 2 seconds to shoot! That’s absurd! Then if you miss the shot because you were so rushed your opponent gets the full shot clock to pick his nose, make a sandwich, then shoot the 9 ball to win. I don’t mind a shortened clock but 2 seconds is ridiculous!! There is also some sort of glitch in 8 ball in at least the 100k game where two different times, coincidentally both the 14 ball was made successfully but turned the shot over to the opponent. In both cases I lost the game. Very frustrating!!
Powerball
by KMattel on 2017/12/20 21:08
Why this game gives out ‘mystery boxes’ I dont know. The coins are pitiful, the free cues are beginner cues. WHY BOTHER!! This ‘Shot Timer’ is ridiculous!! It SHOULD NOT be applied to the ‘NO AIM LINES’ games. If I am good enuff to pot balls by my own aiming, there is no need to shorten the timing of each shot! By the 5th or 6th ball potted, I have less and less time to shoot. In 9 Ball, Too many games are lost because I had to rush a shot. I pot 7-8 balls then the timer cuts me off, giving the game to the opponent. In the games of 'call each pocket' let the player look at the shot first before making a decision.! Also Some balls look the same and seeing if the shot is Solids or Stripes will help ..... the table tops are WAY TOO FAST ! No table has that much run, unless it is a glass top and NO felt!! Slow the tables DOWN ! even 10% less would be an IMPROVEMENT!!
This game blows
by poppadickchicken on 2018/01/11 14:28
I’ve been playing this game for way longer than I should have been playing it. Going on probably 2 years now and in those 2 years I’ve never won anything higher than 250 coins on the daily spin. I even broke down and spent real money on this garbage and still never got anything good back. The games are rigged. I’m level 47 and I got matched with a level 150. How is that even fair? Then there’s times I barely pull back on the stick and it just smashes the ball for no reason. Also the rules for this game aren’t even right. It’d be cool if the rules actually matched the rules you’d have in a real life pool league instead of just being able to smash balls around or the bs ball in hand you get when the ball doesn’t go in the pocket that was called. The creators of this game need to do some research on real life pool leagues. This game is garbage and I wouldn’t waste your time or money on it. 0 stars for you chumps but of course they won’t let you so you have to give 1 star. Garbage.
