I love playing this game
I am baffled of how dumb you can make games.
by Publord Phoenix on 2021/01/22 19:17
This game would be fun if you could actually win. Wide open shots somehow miss, but the bots somehow make trick shot in. And the match making is horrible too. You also get bombarded with dumb advertisements saying to pay tons of money for some cue sticks. No one would willing pay their hard earned money to have a dumb cue stick. I also was paired up with someone who was level 81, and my level was 13 at the time. Please help fix this game.

This company is a greedy money hog!
by miniclip is a scam on 2021/01/22 14:46
I had 18 spin and win spins. If you haven’t played, you spin the wheel to earn coins or other prizes (example: scratchers). There are 15 spots total and 12 of the 15 are coin slots to win. I spun it 18 times and the highest coin amount I Earned was 500. And if that isn’t enough proof, of those 18, I rolled 150 coins about 7-8 times. After my spins, it asked, “would you like to buy a spin for an extra chance to win?”. This game is nothing short of a scammer company doing scammy things. I hope they read my comment and personally feel offended for making such a greedy, pathetic game.
Can you guys add this to ios decices ?
by 8 ball pool Redion on 2021/01/22 13:31
I've been using 8 ball pool for a while now and it's been a great game.I play it every time but there is one thing that you guys need to add. On Android phones there is this feature when you click the free coins if you watch a video it shows that if you watch a video you will recive 15 coins,or 1 cash and you have this feature when it says free coins with offers.This was a cool feature on android phones and it helped me get a lot of coins by playing games. So can you guys add free coins with offers on IOS devices please?

by Ba Diesel on 2021/01/22 03:15
Everytime my opponent shoots it lines up perfectly for them. It always hides behind a ball for me. Or scratch. To much computer controlled. The most rigged game ever. Just watched my ball about to hit the rail and it curves into the pocket so I scratched. 😡🤬🤬😡🤬. RIGGED RIGGED RIGGED RIGGED RIGGED RIGGED RIGGED RIGGED RIGGED RIGGED RIGGED. EVERYTIME I SHOOT I SCRATCHED. MY OPPONENTS ARE MAKING SHOOTS THAT ARE NOT MAKEABLE everytime I got the last shot to win it scratches. You can’t tell me this game ain’t rigged. If you write a bad review it puts you on some list to make you constantly lose.

MASSIVE RIP OFF!
by BenJF3 on 2021/01/21 21:28
This game is a ridiculous RIP OFF!!! Know that going in. The algorithm is programmed to cheat you base on streaks and wager amounts. Just play and you’ll see what I mean. It’s almost comical if it weren’t so blatant. I just ran a table down to the 9 ball and on the last super easy shot where I put ZERO English on it, the ball magically rimmed out of the pocket. Now, what was the difference? I used a straight edge to line up the shot even. The difference was I had won the previous 6 matches at 100 coin wagers and decided why not move to the 10000 coin wager. Do that and the next match up will be rigged. 8 Ball Rip Off! My advice is DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON THIS GAME!!! Play at the free play level for minimum bets to use as a time killer like I do. Also, if you get to break you’ll likely scratch on the break. I just kept track after 10 matches where I had the break and 8 of them the cue ball scratched. It’s programmed this way. My best advice is use the “Leave Game” button once you get cheated. It saves a lot of time. UPDATE! They’ve added a new rip off scam tactic!!! Upon starting your turn, the timer begins half way or further down so you have no time to line up a shot and have to rush thereby missing or not even getting the shot off. It’s a friggin joke!!! CHEAT CITY!!! Just cost me 1000 coin wager. LAME!!!

Charged me $33 for $1.99 purchase. No way to get my money back!
by sauceymob on 2021/01/21 20:38
I was charged more than I authorized a couple times using this app but it was always for under a dollar. This time around the app charged me $33 for a $1.99 purchase. I have no way of getting my money back. As many times as it has happened to me I am sure it happens to thousand upon thousand of people each day which probably adds up to millions of free dollars each month for this app. They truly don’t care as long as we are supporting their bankrolls, houses, cars etc. SMH. $33 might not matter to them but it does for us who live paycheck to paycheck. So sad.

Multiple times after lots of play and coin savings the app freezes, you lose your game and all the coins. Probably purposefully bad because it’s super pushy with buying packages and they want that. Deleted a couple times but I’m legit done. Don’t recommmend.

Bad game
by Squirldawg on 2021/01/20 21:10
The ball does not go that fast in real pool if you aim for one ball and hit it as hard as you can a completely different ball goes in the hole it is a bad game you have to pay in game currency to play offline

Cool game
Good at first.
by Jokr3019 on 2021/01/20 07:36
It was good at first when you play at the first few moment of experience but that’s when you noticed there’s some of the things I noticed were odd. First I just have to say that it’s rigged. Yeah. I said it! Rigged. The reason why is that I keep losing to someone by missing simple shots that I know should’ve made it because I know I aimed at very closely right at the center or when I actually made my striped ball and then it was my opponent’s turn when I should’ve still had my turn. I just think there’s something weird about it. The suspicious don’t just come from the air. Another thing is that when I tried to purchase the Golden Spin. It didn’t go through so I attempted to purchase it numerously thinking the transaction didn’t go through as well. It turns out that this app took about $10.00 out of me when I didn’t receive anything in return. That would be the definition of theft and I think that, based upon the reviews that I read about this app, people also have similar complaints about this game so it would be better if you actually do something. Sure I’m aware that it could be my fault that I miss some shot that were easy to make but I know what I saw. If you don’t believe me, play this game and then you’ll find out for yourself. So that would be my takeaway of that part of that experience. The other part was mostly good and keeps me distracted at the first time I did play and did win some of the matches but I just need someone who manages this to fix something about this. That’s my strong suggestion if you want to keep my customers happy and not think that they’re being ripped off somehow. This is not being a sore loser, this is what I and many other users experienced but I like playing pool because it’s the only that keeps me distracted at this point but I won’t quit your game because I’m not going act like a sore loser because that’s not what I am.

Fun, But Unfair and Frustrating
by VNGELO on 2021/01/19 21:57
Honestly, I don't even know where to start. This game is absolutely ridiculous. As addicting as it is, it's also rigged to the max and very frustrating. App developers are compensated by how much time we spend playing the game which is why it's so appealing, but let's talk about how RIGGED IT IS. For starters, it's a money trap. The daily spin is a joke. You're not gonna will no more than 250 coins and I've seen some people say 500, but they must've gotten lucky or something because 75-250 coins is max for unless it's the Golden Spin. Also, everything you win besides your cues is designed to be taken away from you.. especially your coins. I've won 10+ games multiple times and my winning percentage is 57% so I'm pretty good obviously. Well recently I won 12 games in a row and out of those 12 I played probably 8-9 $20,000 games winning $10,000 each time and maybe 3-4 $5,000 games.. well this is how it's rigged. How can somebody like me win all those times and then lose literally 7-8 games in a row? Like c'mon that's impossible. Just like all the good cues that win cost SO MUCH to recharge them. I remember purchasing 36 scratchers for $4.99 and scratched off tons of money. Well how about after everything I had won I mistakenly clicked on $500,000 game which I NEVER done before since I had the app and it took $250,000 of my coins to play which was everything I had won off scratchers and I ended up losing the game so I played 1 $250,000 game and 3 $50,000 totaling $400,000 to get my money back and I knew it was rigged because as soon as the game ended, an ad popped up for $504,000 coins for $4.99 which would have put me back at the exact same amount I was at before losing all my money. TRUST ME, IT IS RIGGED. I'm convinced the only people who enjoy this game are the ones that have money growing on trees to spend on this app, but people like myself and others that wanna build up cues and earn coins/cash by playing and actually beating people fair & square gets cheated by the app algorithms. It's sad, but it's true.

Don’t be deceived by the ratings, 5 stars are people who waste money in this game. Playable at lower levels, but once reach high levels it’s near impossible to win unless you first buy something. If you get in a match with someone with the pool pass just leave because you will lose.

Couple issues
by The Neighborhood Walker on 2021/01/19 06:38
This isn’t my first complaint. While scrolling through the tables and games, I have accidentally hit play rather than trying to do a ‘look see”. Two million coins have been lost. When starting a new game, we should be asked if we are sure and not just starting and taking our hard earned coins. A second VERY irritating issue is ‘joe blow’ challenged you when you were offline. Then being told that ‘Jane doe’ was recently online. I could care less who was when I wasn’t. Tell us ‘who is’ not ‘who was’. I can only play people who are online at same time, those who were. Fix these issues please and get five stars.

Would be a lot better game if they actually followed legit pool rules! Would make the game more enjoyable instead of people just getting lucky with random shots!
Playing against bots
by BobBanta on 2021/01/18 23:09
I really thought I would like this game, but after playing at least 50 times I’m convinced you are playing against bots. Unfortunately, this means that in many (most?) games the winner is predetermined. If the game wants you to lose, you WILL lose. As others have mentioned, you line up a shot that should be straight into the hole and it misses. Not by a little - by a lot. I mean hitting the cushion outside the pocket and on the rail. Also, you might be beating an opponent that is struggling and all of a sudden they make 5 shots in a row to beat you. Even difficult ones. The last straw for me was that while I was playing well, building coins and increasing levels, I was playing opponents who were at very similar levels. Then I started playing in the more expensive rooms (higher bets) and suddenly I’m matched against players who are 30 to 40 levels above me. A couple of times they cleared the table and I didn’t get to shoot. I felt as though the game wanted me to lose a whole bunch of coins so that they could sell me more. Graphics are great but the game play needs a lot of work.
Love the game but ..
by p-rice22 on 2021/01/18 23:07
Can you guys please patch whatever bug is going on in the 9 ball tournament I will make a ball in off the break and it will give the next play to the other opponent ?! Also every shot the balls are rearranging right in front of you on the tournament which has caused me to lose a few matches now and it’s getting ridiculous!
Great game but little issue
by Game guy✌️ on 2021/01/18 22:21
I really like this game but some thing that bugs me is one mini game; specifically the spin and win It says that you could win 100000 or a scratcher but you only win up to 250, which makes the spin and win rigged. Please Fix it. Agin It is really fun game.

Complaint
by Cleatice on 2021/01/18 20:28
Very unfair and aggravating! Games must be manipulated. You can make a ball then it’s your opponent’s shot. I’ve potted balls only to have them reappear and it says I’m out of time. Why aren’t reviews listed in order of their post ? Very frustrated!

Every game you join are hackers or bots you lose or win hackers win you can never win
The app is temperamental.
by Stand4USA on 2021/01/18 17:43
On many occasions it starts to spool like it is thinking. Glitchy at times. I have closed the game an then restarted playing from beginning because I thought it would fix the problem but it hasn’t. The support for it is spotty.
Awesome

Great game
This game is awful.
by Kassie&Benny on 2021/01/18 16:46
The mechanics of the daily spin only allow you to win the lowest amount of money possible. At one point had 900K coins and lost 17 games straight to bots, losing every one of my coins. I bought the pool pass and the game only allows you to level up with trophies, but with the money I had only allowed me to play in arenas where I already had all of the trophies. This means that my $5 was absolutely wasted because they set up the game to scan you, not make your playing experience better. Overall, if you have an ounce of a brain cell you won’t download this game because regardless of how good you are, the game will always win.
Rigged
by toejam86 on 2021/01/18 15:34
The game is rigged and has bots and allows people to cheat. This is absurd. I don’t know how this is an editors choice. For what? Game manipulation?
Fun way to pass time
by Prettykool520 on 2020/09/01 17:10
I thoroughly enjoy this game for several reasons: firstly, it is simple enough to where one can explore the game and understand it quickly, making it less of a hassle than games with unnecessary features; I also enjoy the minimal placement of ads in this game, they are far in between and don’t irritate the user by appearing in the way of things. Additionally, the gameplay itself is entertaining as you get to play with other people around the world, and as you play you can unlock new cities as well as prizes and coins for winning. There are events in this game that run weekly, offering additional opportunities for prizes for players to win. There are even special mini games for players, such as a daily “Lucky Shot” and the ability to spin a wheel for prizes. And while there are numerous prizes available, the game remains challenging enough in that you may lose some of your earnings if you lose against an opponent. Overall, it’s a game worth playing! My only issue is with the slightly consistent request to purchase in game features—however, this alone doesn’t deter me from rating this game as excellent, as it is easy to close out of these requests.
Great Game, but a few problems
by Seraphim1313 on 2020/08/26 18:56
So I Love this game. It’s great to pass time with and I’ve always enjoyed it. The reason why I’m giving only 4 stars and not 5 is because of a few problems I have noticed within the game. First of all, the daily spins you get (and also including the spins you earn from the pool pass) is completely rigged. Whenever I spin I always get 250 coins (with vip points too) EVERY SINGLE TIME. And whenever I get a second spin from watching a video, I always get 100 coins. It happens every single time I open the app and when I get that spin. I’ve never spun anything higher than maybe 500 coins before and that’s IF I get lucky. The second thing is partially my fault, but also the apps fault as well. I’ve noticed that whenever I pot a ball when I’m playing against someone and aim it spot on and I know for a fact it will go in, it doesn’t and completely misses. Sometimes I notice that it could have been my fault, but there have been many other times where it wasn’t and it just happens to miss and then it’s my opponents turn and they end up winning even though I should have clearly won. I’m not being a sore loser about it, but I definitely know when I should have won a match based on how I know a ball should have been potted into a hole. Besides these two major problems, I don’t have much complaint about the game. It’s super fun and very enjoyable..!
Game as addicting as it is frustrating
by Mr thizzle on 2021/01/07 01:33
Eight ball pool has some really fun features like prizes you can unlock by completing missions, and can be addicting - especially while your first playing the game. They make sure your first several days of playing are filled with winning, prizes, bonuses - all of which add to the fun of actually playing pool against people from around the world. After the first few days though I began to get more and more frustrated, and lose more and more games. It also seems to be one of the few games I’ve ever played or practice does not make perfect. My win percentage consistently is declining as is my ability to make basic shotsOn a consistent basis. The prizes that were once so easily gained now seem to mostly be available through purchase. In between every match you’re getting pop-up windows to pay for cues and mini games and cash in coins. And by that point you may be tempted, as losing prevents you from getting prizes and depletes your coin bank. There’s also a lot of talk about the game being potentially rigged, or algorithms and bots serving to increase your chance of losing, especially on the high coon tables. And I’ve certainly experienced enough perplexing and frustrating losses against opponents with really terrible win percentages to make me a bit suspicious. Overall it’s an OK game as long as you don’t take it too seriously and I would not recommend paying for coins or prizes with actual money.
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. 🙄
Nothing but a money trap
by never agian83 on 2020/09/11 05:31
Ok so I figured it out I think.. you play other players in the lower levels and lose. A lot. You only win just enough to get hooked, unless you pay big bucks, you’ll never see the higher levels. Why? Well. The game limits how far you go. How? If you miss one shot. I mean just one, the other players, (which some are the computer posing as real people) can run the whole table without you getting another shot AT ALL. Then you lose your coins and get kicked back to a lower level. The cycle repeats itself until you are scrambling to win your money back to compete in higher levels. Once you start getting close, your shots start to get off and your aim isn’t accurate (I literally screen recorded me playing and witnessed on the slow mo playback that even tho my aim was right, the computer made me miss the shot). Then you have to spend more coins to recharge your stick. They then give you spins and free coins, 100 to 300 coins a pop to keep you playing. After realizing you can’t beat the game, you go ahead and spend money to purchase more coins to play at higher levels, the cycle goes on and on until next thing you know, you’re back at no coins and either have to play at the lower stages or pay again to temporarily play at the higher ones. This game is a money trap and I’ll only play it to pass the time. But don’t expect to really win much.
I believe this game is fixed
by Jackie Martling on 2020/07/19 11:46
After playing the entire quarantine, the game can definitely be fun but I have strong suspicions that it is slightly fixed. Before people say I’m just bad or a sore loser, my winning percentage is much better than chance. However I believe it’s advantageous to the app makers to encourage players to pay real cash in the app. Therefore they are incentivized to keep you on the edge losing just enough to frustrate you but not enough to make purchasing extra coins or cash or cues out of the question or unnecessary. The amount of inconsistent ball rolls and inexplicable scratches on the 8 ball have begun to add up after 3 months. I found a reddit thread with similar complaints. Think about it, even the cues losing their charge is geared toward eating your coins so you constantly require more. I refuse to spend real money on a game so I will never pay but I really hope people understand this game is likely fixed in some way. I also believe there are bots playing against you in many games. Ever notice in some games the opposing player points at many of your balls first before finding his ball? That screams “trial and error” bot to me. Overall I have fun playing this game but strongly encourage people to watch out. Additionally it seems there are cheats that real humans can use too. Ever notice some players can nail extremely difficult shots without fail. Save your money. Expect frustration. Enjoy the parts of it you can I guess.
Like the game, but many areas of frustration.
by John in USA on 2020/01/13 14:49
Way too many ads for “deals.” I’m always the lucky recipient of pool cue “pieces” that I don’t want. I upgraded my cue and I’m fine with it. I don’t need 25 other cues that are no where as good as mine! The daily spin is fixed! 90% of spins land on 50, 100 or 500. Any sensible person would be able to figure out that it’s rigged. Scratchers are the same, I’ve had a few big ones but I know they are just to bait me. And the trash talk and silly slang comments are not for any mature adult, I have disabled the chat feature (once I found out you could) and I enjoy the game much more without being harassed by juvenile acting people. Sometimes I feel like I’m playing with bots. I believe when I began the game a few years ago, I played every single person in India. Now all I get are people in Brazil. Nothing wrong with either country, just makes you wonder how your opponents are chosen and if everything with this game is on the up and up. Like I said, it’s fun....just don’t spend a lot of money, play within your means, disable chat unless you like it and be careful when selecting your game, it’s programmed to put you in the most expensive game you can afford and I’ve been suckered early on into some high coin games because I was too quick with my finger. Slide, don’t tap lol.
Good game!! Except!!!!
by JMKastner on 2019/03/20 19:40
Would of given this five stars, but sometimes I get booted from a match and lose my coins, even if I'm winning or I get booted then it brings me back, I missed my turn and the other player has ball in hand! Really?!? Sometimes in the very beginning of the game when you get the spin to win I will start spinning and it will automatically click into update mode and then I won’t win whatever the spin table lands on, it won’t even show me what it landed on. It just goes right into the game and I lose that turn. Then, I’m a level 50 and consistently the game puts me up against a level 120+!! are you +*^%#*# serious?! Needless to say yesterday I had over 1 million coins now I’m down to not even half that. You should have the option to see who you’re up against and you should have the option to back out of that match before the match starts and before your coins are dropped into the pot.! I mean think about it, when you go to a real pool hall in real life you get to see the person or persons play before you play them and then if they ask you to play them you can decide whether you want to or not before the match starts or before you put up any money. I’m just saying give us a choice on whether we want to play against that guy or girl that is 70+ levels ahead of us!
Fun & sometimes Rage inducing 😂
by Color Switch Player D on 2020/04/08 18:32
There are times where I absolutely hate the game because I keep losing to people with a higher skill level than me. The way they select your opponent is completely random, which on one note can be pretty fun. But then on another note, you got someone who is a skill level 16 (like me) playing up against a skill level 131 or even higher. (I have seen on the world leaderboard someone with a skill level of 972) Which can seem pretty unfair, but winning against them is not impossible, but it is really hard. I do like most of the concepts in the game. The fact that you can get a huge amount of cues in your collection is pretty sweet. With more cues, you have a ton of different advantages. And the general designs of some of the cues are really nice. When it comes to the games themselves, they are pretty simple, but you do have to make sure you aim correctly. Because sometimes when it seems like you have a perfect aim, it could actually go a bit lower or a bit higher than what you think, so just keep note of that. Overall it is a pretty fun game, but for those who tend to have a little gamer rage, this game can certainly get you a little mad when you get put up against someone that is super experienced.
Great, needs some work
by Masoon 88 on 2019/10/29 03:41
They keep offering me a chance to review even though I already did. So here are some things I think could be improved. 1) Please add an "open all" for the prize box opening, it takes too long to open all of them, I just want to get back to game play. 2) Friend requests -I get friend requests from the players who have beaten me (almost solely), if I'm not set up to have friends, I should be able to block all requests. Currently I have to x each of them out and it's a nuisance. Plus I am sick of these petty sore winners wanting to jab at me just because they beat me, winning should be enough. 3) Special offers swipe down suddenly when you go to open boxes or select game play making players accidentally select purchases. Obviously I don't buy stuff that I accidentally select, but I think it's rude of the game maker to try that tactic. If they are doing it so that folks who are stupid, young or inexperienced enough to buy because they think they are obligated to, then that's sort of stealing. Other than those three things this game is great. It's cool to be sitting in Kentucky playing a woman in Indonesia, win or lose.
This WAS a good game...
by P.D.347 on 2018/03/29 20:38
I've been playing this game for a couple of years now and have really, really, liked it. Until this week. Some ppl just can't leave well enough alone. The commercial content and coin collecting aspect of it had been tolerable until the latest changes. If you want to play slot machines, and trash talk with friends, then maybe you will get some enjoyment out of it. But for the pool purist, or someone interested in actually playing an accurate computer sim of the game, keep looking. This game is now catered to the kids... A pool stick that you have to continually pay credits to recharge? Ridiculous. So sad to see the end of my favorite ipad game... Hey guys at Miniclip, how about reinvesting in making the game actually better? Instead you're just constantly inventing different ways to get another few dollars out of everyone. Also, it's a little fishy how out of my thousands of daily spins, I seem to land on $100 about 80% of the time... and, I don't EVER recall winning anything other than a thousand bucks or so on a "Scratcher." I wouldn't play these at all if I weren't forced to, so if you're going to force ppl to play, you could at least make it fair. Oh, and enough with the bazillion different pool sticks! Geeeez!
Unfair
by Unfair/rigged on 2020/10/09 01:28
I’ve been playing this game for a while, but after I write this review I’m deleting this app. First off why should you have to play a player 300 levels above you, you don’t stand a chance. Every time you think your doing good and might win a game, boom straight line shots that you know will go in don’t. The daily spins are rigged and will never give you more that 500 coins. Second once you get to about level 50, you never win, if you even get a shot at all the player your playing is going to win 90% of the time. All it want you to do is lose your coins so you have to buy more. I have never paid actual money for coins and never will. The clubs are so rigged it’s crazy, join a club and you will se yourself, if you don’t pay 8$ a week for pro membership you are playing against someone that plays Venice witch is 150million for a win and don’t have a chance in winning! It’s a money driven game and if you don’t pay for the membership or pay for coins it’s impossible to level up. And the rings are a joke. Now mini clip made it impossible to get any decent cues and forget about getting a legendary cue if you don’t pay you will never get one. Now you have cue trophies? And other rigged tiers you are trying to get it’s simply UNFAIR for new players.
Well it WAS great . . .
by Guitar Girl Rocks on 2019/07/11 20:27
As for actual pool game goes, it’s pretty accurate except a couple odds and ends like, if you pot the 8 ball on break you really won the game — this doesn’t do that. There were a minor glitch or two here and there in the app. But not really that big of an issue that’d really interfere with your playing. Before the latest update my biggest two complaints were the fake/bot players and not having the ability to sell your pool cues that you no longer use. But now, since the latest update, on my iPhone it won’t load and on my iPad it forecloses every time I enter into a game. The only way I can play is in practice mode. As before, the ads are annoying af and as well as the constant cue upgrades on cues I NEVER USE. I do find the game a little rigged. Once you get your coins up a good bit, suddenly it hard to win games and you’re paired up with someone who’s at a greatly more level then you (for example: you’re level 22 and the person you’re playing against is at level 122). And this app hates slow connection speeds, it either won’t load or freezes up periodically during play. I hope the app developers fixes the bugs since the latest update for the iPhone and iPad. On my MacBook Pro, through Facebook’s website it’s ok, but not great.
Rigged/Pay2WinOdds
by Tsquiddly on 2020/04/16 05:15
I’ve played for years now. Every here and there when I get the chance and feel like playing. But I decided to do a little study on the games mechanics and assistance. You could win 20 games in a row in Las Vegas (10,000 buy-in) if you tried but as soon as you move beyond that, you’ll see that you’ll get a lot more “guest” player opponents. They will somehow hit the most impossible sloppy shots, always the perfect amount of power to line up their next shot and you won’t even get a chance to play. Now I know there are players who are just that good with a lot of time into the game... but I ran an algorithm on recorded game play based on the odds of winning with diff buy in amounts and a 2nd based on odds of winning (same buy ins)after making in game purchases - both with all shots made at full power for the baseline. Out of the 20 matches I did for each analysis, I’ve concluded that you’re approx 15-35% (depending on the price of the IGP and or quantity) more likely to win after making an in game purchase. Strictly playing without purchases at full power, the farther you progress in buy-in price, the game will shuffle through a few ways of how it reacts to your shots. You could attempt the same shot(Same angle too) 3 times and each time it would be different. If you read this far, do what you will with the info. That concludes my findings. Thanks
More languages and option to change flags in game.
by xerhina09 on 2019/04/25 12:43
The game is great but how about adding two or three more languages... If you guys ever played these days, you'd find a lot of Indonesian players and it would be nice to add their language so they can understand it. There's even a YouTuber for 8BP called "Prisma" who is Indonesian [🇮🇩] and maybe you could make it easier for them. Also, as a Filipino national, please add Tagalog (Filipino) [🇵🇭] into the game because even if you've added Russian and German, I haven't encountered many people with the German (🇩🇪), Austrian (🇦🇹) or Russian (🇷🇺) Flag <Eben if these aren't all Russian and/or German [🇦🇹, 🇧🇪, 🇩🇪, 🇳🇦 and 🇨🇭], speaking countries, I just wanted to add them only>, which makes me assume / or be confused they're what they seem to be. So another option I'd want to add is to change my flag because I want to change my flag to the flag of the Philippines (🇵🇭) instead of what I have now (🇶🇦). I want to add this feature because when I got my account to be added in my game, it showed my flag was for Qatar (🇶🇦). Another thing, I want to add Urdu [🇵🇰] because a lot of Pakistani players are among of whom I've encountered.
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.

by Chescabear on 2021/01/15 14:22
I don’t write reviews very often but I wanted to for this one. First off, thanks for making it entertaining enough that I want to spend 5.00 for the pool pass. So many game programmers developed a game and just expect that the players will put out cash just because. Something I really hate... But I do have a small complaint about your game. Let’s say I’m in the middle of a 5000 game of 9 ball. A friend comes online and challenged me. I leave the game I’m playing and the matchup just keeps spinning with no connection to my friend. This is extremely irritating because the matchup never works. It cannot be that hard to make it work. Especially if the friend is right here in the U.S. I’m matched up with complete strangers from all over the world, but cannot get hooked up with a friend that is in another state..... Please fix this. And then my review will change to 5 stars. Until that time, 4 is the best I can give. Thank you. Hello, I paid for the pool pass, and was going to collect this morning but my prize money isn’t available. It’s just showing that the next pool pass starts in 68 hours. How can I collect my prize money. If I’m unable to, the review will drop to a single star. Just saying. Thanks.
Algorithm determines who will win
by milpilot9138 on 2020/04/23 12:41
Full disclosure, I’ve only been playing this game for a few days (albeit, for about 7 hours each day — hey, I’m self-isolating :)), but I’ve already noticed the most annoying feature. First the good...great graphics, lots of choices of play, and you are able to upgrade cues fairly quickly if you play a lot. Now the bad...it seems it is sometimes predetermined who the computer wants to win the game. I have — on many, many occasions — been down to my last ball (or two) after running the table. I will hit the next shot in the pocket only to have the computer suspiciously make my ball roll farther than it normally would have and to place it in a position which I cannot finish the game. At first, I thought it was just me. But after many an experiment with using the exact amount of power to roll the ball towards the end of the game, I have found it is very consistently inconsistent towards the conclusion. It is almost that the computer algorithm wants to make it exciting towards the finish line. I DO NOT like games which the computer determines outcomes. If you are okay with this situation, then by all means, play this game. It is not bad other than this “algorithmic anomaly”. It is, though, the prime reason I WILL NEVER pay any actual money to purchase anything from game developers that do this to their games.
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.
Beware of what city is defaulted upon entering!
by Luvthatspeed on 2019/03/17 12:27
I love this game but a MAJOR gripe I have is the defaulted city displayed as you enter the game. The higher rank and more coins you have the default city changes. If you have 100,001 coins, it will default to Toronto and if you are not careful you can accidentally select Toronto as you try to swipe to another city. If you accidentally select and lose, now you have 1 coin remaining. Obviously this is not a design flaw but a design in order to make it flawed so you undoubtedly need to purchase coins to continue to play. Really pisses me off as I had earned alot of coins at lower levels by winning alot and with one mistake it cost me $2.5M coins. I lost to a “person” without ever having a turn...break and run. There is also no option to back out...once you select a city, thats it! You are playing that city. At a minimum, there ought to be an option that prompts you to confirm if you really want to play that city. This would have saved me millions of coins four of the five times I have accidentally made a selection on a city I did not want to play!
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
Game instability only gets worse w/time; WAY worse.
by babySamsMom on 2020/03/05 07:51
Same bugs/obvious algorithm cheats & player hacks are worse 5+ yrs later! Same glitches-worsened w/time. I experience SAME bizarre probs reported for yrs by the masses! PLUS, now seeing entirely new mutations of BS. Last 24 hrs of play-no matter if I win/lose; chg to new game@new/diff level of play-higher stakes, etc.,I am not given my turns at the break?! Even tried rebooting, etc.,zilch...Not once..game used to trade off :( not anymore?? 12+games-not given any of my many rightful turns to break Updates are now worthless waste of GIANT data gobbling inconveniences. ZERO fixes/improvements! Wthell is going on at miniclip? You seemed to have a very successful, fun & lucrative gig going. It’s slipping/slipped thru your hands. Your most devoted, longstanding & loyal patrons are bored with the lack of accountability. Truly disheartening/disappointing. No effective measures taken to correct CORE probs. No help given to rectify wrongdoing-loss of coins, game drops, time/clock hacking-sinking shots only to have ball(s) “pop” back out of pocket, loss of turn AND remaining balls in play are SCRAMBLED!?!?? Wld Love some actual remedies in the form of restoration of lost coinage/credits/vip levels/badge tiers that deliver on their promises?! Explanations welcomed-as is-this is just plain sad, it’s reflection of Y-O-U...
English
by Delete123 on 2019/11/07 22:13
For the most part they have the physics pretty good, but no cigar. Using reverse English will land your cue ball in a pocket, for a scratch shot. You can almost bet the farm on it. More than not. I thought that maybe it wasn’t a glitch and it wouldn’t happen if you upgraded my stick to the highest level. No such luck. My stick is upgraded to the max and it scrTches every time if using hard English. It’s maddening and costs you game after game. Because most games usually hinge on one particular shot, that if it happens that it’s a hard English shot (hard meaning striking the cue ball with some power, pace) it’ll cost you the game. I’ve seen the cue ball seemingly go around other balls, like a guided missile to end up in the pocket forfeiting my shot and a lot of times the game. For such a good game to have such a glaring bug is a shame. By the way, there was a period in my life, I made my living shooting pool. So I know how English is suppose to work. And in this case, not work. That’s my only tic about the game. And after all it’s just a game, designed for entertainment, so if never fixed it won’t really matter. Just a game I’ve had a lot of fun playing. As the saying goes: if this is as bad as it gets, we’re in good shape. Enjoy
Big Bug
by Finchman123 on 2020/10/06 17:34
I’ve had this game for 6 years now and have played it on and off the entire time. There is a new bug I’ve noticed the past couple weeks that resulted in a warning that my account could be reset because the system thinks I’m hacking. The past three weeks I’ve noticed that any time I win a game, the coins I win don’t count toward the leaderboards. So for the past three weeks my account shows that I haven’t gained any winnings despite winning a few dozen games each week. I think because of this bug the app’s anti cheat software flagged my profile for going up roughly 10M coins but not showing any wins. Overall, this is a really fun game and a great way to pass the time (I mean, it has retained me as a player for 6 years). I would be really upset and probably never return to the game if I were to lose 6 years of progress including being level 150, have a collection power of 60, a gold tier VIP member, and 755M lifetime winnings due to a bug that is outside of my control. This is a very serious bug and needs to be fixed quickly or they will lose a long time player who has bought all of the premium season passes and plans to continue to do so.
Update
by Babbs81 on 2020/09/05 22:16
I used to think that this app was a 5 star app. This week it has gone down to a 3. After this last update everything worked fine, but, now it’s very frustrating to play. I like being competitive with my friends and in the club I’m in, but, this past week, when I win a game, I will get the winning coins in my player page, but, when I go to my friends page or my club page, there are no coins...Zero and it doesn’t matter how many games I win, it still says zero. Very frustrating when you like to compete with people. I have already been kicked out of a good club because I can’t increase my coins off of zero. So, I have tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, but, it is still the same way. And I live in the United States and it has me living in Canada now. There’s no way that I have found to change it back to the US. If this can’t be fixed, without me losing my level that I’m at and all my coins and money that I have, then I’m ready to delete the app and be done with it. I would hate to do that because I play it a lot and like the competition, but, if there is no competition there is no sense in playing anymore. Please try to fix this problem and I’ll change my rating back.
Updates to think about
by Theawesome0103 on 2019/09/25 23:44
I’ve been playing for a long time and defiantly have thought about possible updates for this game. First - I wish their was a way to watch your friends play live. Like Clash of clans or other games you can watch clan mates and friends attack live, which would be really cool on this game. Even if you could send just replays to the club chat so others can watch would be awesome. Second - tournaments could be worked as well. The ones we have work tremendously well but making more/new ones would be even cooler. Club tournaments could be a possibility in this. Sending a tournament to the club and allowing club mates to join and play for a small prize at the end would be so fun. Which leads me to my next point that tournaments should go up in size to see who has some real skill. Especially if you have a lot of people in a clan then it would help to have like a 16 person tournament or something of greater numbers than 8. This game is amazing and fun as always, I just like to try and invent new ideas to further it’s gameplay. 👍
Cheats you of time & money
by ImaUserNoMore on 2018/06/07 13:47
Although this game can be enjoyable when working properly, it often has what it labels as “connection slow” issues. If you tap on a profile during this event, you will see the message “updating.” When this happens and it finishes its update, you could potentially be losing time leaving you no time to aim and shoot causing you to lose your turn. This has often caused players to lose the game & money if you pay for any additional coins. It makes it appear that your connection is slow but in reality the games’ network is overburdened. This is happening more frequently than when I first started playing. There are other minor issues which aren’t worth mentioning. But the so called “slow connection” issue is the worst and why I keep rating it with 3 stars. UPDATE: After reading some other reviews, I agree that there are bots especially when chat comments like Never Give Up are used when it makes no sense. I agree with seems that most players are in countries other than my own and skill levels not matched. I agree that it cheats you out of money and algorithyms used seem to cause you to lose. There seems to be lack of support but increase in glitches. What I don’t get is why it’s still labeled as the Editor’s Choice. Therefore I’m downgrading the rating to 2 stars.
Fun
by Backspinforce on 2018/07/04 10:22
I have played this game for years. If you take your time and play the games based on coins within your means it is fun. Nobody likes to lose but is addictive. With 8 & 9 ball and then tournaments, play different ones when you have made bad shots and lost or want to extend your fun. I do get mad at times like everyone else but if you are playing low coin games you can have lots of fun and then can add your messages to create more stress so if it good luck or trash talk all goes both ways back and forth. You get free coins every day and can watch videos for more too. Like any other game when you get mad or bored give it a break for a couple days and come back to it. I have played this game for fun when traveling or at a doctors office waiting and connection is important but at home you can play friends and message each other in the game which makes it more fun. I switch among 8&9 ball and tournaments with different coin values and even though I do lose when I thought I wasn’t it still give new life when you lost and then you finally win again. Probably one of my overall favorite apps too so give it a try for a while if you like pool!
The game allows you to cheat
by z-? on 2020/01/14 01:19
Although the graphics on this game are very good. there are a couple of major problems with playing this game as an app as opposed to reality. Number one when you scratch the ball should be placed on the area where the ball was placed during the break. In reality you can place the ball anywhere from the bumper to the imaginary line where the ball was placed during the break and you can only line up a shot on the balls ahead of that line towards the far bumper. The app allows you to place the ball anywhere on the table that you like and because of that when people do that they are cheating they know it but the game doesn’t stop them Which is odd because throughout the game you can’t shoot your opponents ball but in reality you can shoot the opponents ball you just lose your shot if you make it. The bottom line is because the game allows you to place the cue ball anywhere you like on the table to make any shot after a scratch destroys the games credibility and since you can’t chat with your opponent you can’t tell them hey you can’t do that even though they know. before I play this game again you will have to fix that glitch it is very frustrating to know people are cheating and the game is allowing it and you can’t do anything about it that’s why you get a one star
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.
Game Breaking Bugs and Matchmaking
by stevewonders27 on 2019/03/02 07:36
I really love this game, but it’s hard to when you aren’t able to play. Every single game I get paired with someone from India or Brazil or somewhere where our connection isn’t stable. I can’t even count the hundreds of thousands of coins I’ve lost due to a crash caused by poor connection. It’s come to a point where it happens so commonly and in such important, high stakes games, where I am afraid to play the game. At least when your game fails to establish a somewhat ideal connection, don’t take away my coins that I’ve been forced to spend money on. I know for a fact that it is not my WiFi, so you cannot possibly blame it on that. I have noticed that every time I play someone from my country or even my continent that the games are faster and can actually run. But, this only seems to happen once every 20 games. The number of times I’ve been about to win a high stake game and then I lose because of “poor connection to server” has become substantially high. I am seriously afraid to play your game until I can be assured that I will be able to play a game safely without losing my coins which are tied to my actual money. Trust me, this review should really be a 5 star, but your game needs some serious fixing and some decent customer service if you want that.
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
Complicated
by HopeLovePeaceNotWar on 2020/08/16 13:18
So overall I like this game, but there are a few things that make me want to rip my hair out. First, every time you open the app you are shown an add for their own game. And if you accidentally press the ad than you get paid for like some coins or whatever. Second, my connection is pretty good so I’m assuming this is game, but my cue is always like either moving super fast or not moving at all. It’s weird and frustrating. Third, the spin wheel thing is rigged. For example, every time I spin it I get a hundred coins or something when there are options for like twenty thousand coins. I have been on this game for a while now and I always get the lowest amount of coins offered on it. Fourth, they sometimes pair me up with like level seventy people. I’m at level twenty so that’s a big jump. I would perfer if we played against people on our level or a few levels below or above us. This was it’s more fair and we get to play against people with our own skill level. But in total this game is ok and it’s fun and stuff just if the developers fixed those few problems than it would be perfect. Thanks! :)
Stop B*****n
by Straight BALLIN ! on 2020/09/02 09:15
I read some of these reviews.. MY GOD!! SHUT UP!! “My wife has a cue collection and I don’t” her side piece has a bigger BLEEP than you too. GET OVER IT!! More complaining below Then you have these real weirdos who dissect the tiniest stuff. Dude, this game is computer generated, yet it plays exactly the way real pool would play. It actually makes everyone of us better than we’d ever be in real life. There’s times when the ball just sits there and SPINS like a top spin the same as real pool. Do you how insane that is for all the calculations to go into this? Take what bezos makes in a yr, CUBE THAT MF to the 100th power and MAYBE that’s how many scenarios this game calculates. Do you want what’s WRONG with this game? It’s WAY too addictive. For recovering gambling addicts this game is a problem. It’s creators invested greatly into people who work for the big casino chains. I’m not just talking about the obvious signs of the rewards etc being casino based. To the people who are “truth seekers” “red pilled” they will understand what I’m talking about. To the zombies who roam this world they will only see my post as a rambling bunch of BS.
Almost complete
by Big D 4967 on 2018/04/24 10:44
The game is very good and fun to play. What it needs to make it complete, in my opinion, is that it needs to have the ability to enter your own comments during play. You can’t have all the things I would like to say so being able to add my own would be great. But the game is really enjoyable to play and it’s fun to play people from around the world and that checking the players profile we see what country they are from and what their win rate is and what rings they’ve won. Which I really like winning rings it’s just a shame that we really can’t wear them, that would be awesome! If you like playing a game for free this is your game. You can spend money to get better cues and to get more coins but you can get more cues by winning games and getting gift boxes that you open in time or spend your dollar bills that you’ve acquired. But you can play without spending any real cash. Well I haven’t had to spend any yet and I’ve won 4 rings and working on number 5. All this is great fun and you can also play your friends and send friends gifts.
Spend money and get soft banned
by KB Gamer1982 on 2020/01/30 09:25
I play this game often. I don’t normally spend money on in-app purchases. However, I really like this game and decided “why not?” From time to time I treat myself to some extra cash (or coins) on the app. I’ve played over 15,000 games, win percentage 42.8%, and not a lot of wins. I go through winning and losing spurts, but I play tables ranging from $100k to $2.5mil. I signed on to check my 8 hour box, only to realize that everything that I have purchased and won (fair and square) has been taken. I get a “Final Warning” pop up (mind you this is the first pop up I’ve ever seen). I’ve never used third party modifications, don’t have any extra accounts to transfer coins, nor have I offended anyone (I keep my chat off when I’m playing the game). This cannot be legal. I can see if I was doing anything on their “Final Warning” list, but I have actually worked to build up my account fairly. I will be closing my account, but I am looking to take further action before I do. You don’t pay for a product and allow the store to take it back at their leisure all in the name of something they make up. I work hard for my money in real life. If I purchase a product (service) in good faith, you will not be allowed to take it and expect me to bow out gracefully.
Game is OK
by whiteclawsnobras on 2019/08/11 15:06
For some unknown reason my first account got deleted out of the blue after having spent a decent amount of cash in the App Store for in game coins/cash/pool cues etc. Had no other choice but to make another account. The way they match you up with an opponent doesn’t make sense, you can be level 40 and get matched against someone who’s level 140 and has won over a billion coins, or you could be level 40 and play against someone who’s a level 5 it doesn’t make much sense. It also seems that after you stop using the App Store to buy coins and only use the free coins they give that they match you against harder opponents intentionally to make you blow through your coins quicker. Another thing I don’t like is you can buy an upgraded cue with in game coins and cash or pay via the App Store but you have to constantly “recharge” the cue for its abilities of better aim/power etc to work and it seems as though the “charge” only lasts maybe a few games before the cue that you paid for works the same as a regular cue they give for free. I guess with any free app it’s never truly free, but with something so simplistic as 8 Ball Pool you’d expect it to not be such a pain to play.

I have been gaming long enough to know not to get my hopes up but when ur waiting for that bug fix that you know mustbe coming and then when it finally gets here youre elated only to find that the only bug they fixed was one that affects the hindi speaking players. Its extremely frustrating. I have put in a lot of time and effort trying to get 'good' at their game and find myself and efforts thwarted at every turn. I know not to take it personally but how long does one wait before being ableto actually play the real game and not some knock off version of it because the bug fix is missing. I know its not my device it is the game and im not the only player tohave the same problems where after the last upgrade we cannot even play one on one wo being thrown out and having to reconnect. If i did not have my own club perhaps it would have made some difference perhaps i would have left by now. I do hope they live up to their hype , a lot of ppl depend on it. Its a shame when they really could be the best! Help, ive been shanghaiied!!!!!
Best one out there
by TrobleMakerM on 2020/12/29 06:27
Killers of the game. It’s all about the money for the game developers I’m sure they want it to be fun for all of us but in the end it seems like your almost always matched with better players then you, people are very serious in the game or just win by antagonizing you by constant emoji’s you can mute them though, I’m a girl so Everyman is after a friendship just turn the option off, you tube will tell you how to break so you might actually have a chance against the experts on here. Do not play nine ball because there is nothing but people in there that do “the golden break” so u lose with in seconds I did not know this and it killed my win lose ratio. But if you’re playing above 10,000 a game you’re going against some serious competition so if you haven’t mastered the game don’t even attempt it... other than that have fun don’t take it seriously you’re definitely going to lose a lot. Also for this game I would suggest looking up how to control the Q ball for that added edge. In the game it is called spin. Good luck have fun.
Fun game BUT...
by ~Danny G~ on 2019/03/19 17:24
This is really a fun game with a good look BUT... I gave the game 3 stars because there is definitely something wrong here. The biggest issue is the connection. I have lost countless games because of “slow connection” issues. Well, it’s not on my end. There is obviously a problem with the server or something in the software and it’s incredibly frustrating. I have played games where I sank the 8 ball, and I should have won, then the screen refreshes and my opponent sinks the 8 ball for the win. Are you kidding me? I have been in the middle of the game, made and sank my shot, then all of a sudden my opponent is shooting? In tournaments it’s even worse. I have lost the majority of the tournaments I entered solely because of connection issues. Beyond frustrating! Bottom line, fun for the first hour then the game just go south as you start to level. There are enough people playing this game that I’m sure the developers are more than aware of the issues. I can’t think of any reason it hasn’t been resolved yet. That’s bad form in my opinion and I’m not the only one experiencing these issues. If they ever fix the connection problems I would give this app another try.
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.
Lose coins when winning!
by Southern60 on 2020/01/13 02:30
I have been playing for a couple of months now. Even though the game can be fun, it has some flaws and down right cheats. The first flaw I saw was moving of the cue ball by the game after play. More than one time I have left the cue ball against the rail at a pocket making for a really difficult shot for my opponent. Next thing I see is the game more the ball off the rail making the shot easier for my opponent. The next flaw is the level of the opponent it pairs you with. 9 out of 10 times I’m playing against someone with much more experience, rarely someone of the same or near level. Now to the cheating. Several times when I had cue ball in hand after my opponent pocketed it, I would have just set the ball down to line up a shot only to be told “time ran out.” The most it had been was 3 seconds but now my opponent had the ball again. The biggest cheat is the loss of coins when you win. That’s right. LOST COINS WHILE WINNING!! Just today at 2 different times I lost coins when I won games. The first time I won 2 games in a row and lost 500 coins. The second time I won the game and my total went down 3000 coins. Doesn’t sound like much but it does add up for those just starting out.
Definitely a fixed game...
by Danko Bangs on 2021/01/17 03:16
First off, you never know how the order of breaking is. You can win a bunch of matches and still not be the one to break for 4+ games. Sometimes it varies. You can recharge your cues and sometimes it doesn’t even make a difference in the shooting techniques that the cue offers. The quick fire in offline mode is definitely a good example..you can get to almost any tier and the white ball always seems to travel more than any other ball on the table, especially to the pockets 😅 the time always runs even when you are not shooting because the balls are rolling forever...it’s definitely never the same time given back to you when you are potting balls left and right. You can get a whole table cleared in a matter of seconds and still have 10 seconds before you run out of time and guess what?...the white ball happens to be sunk in a pocket 🥴🤦🏻‍♂️ it’s almost as if they want you to lose in any given game. You pretty much know if you will or not. Maybe it’s just the way the games are played, but definitely something I’d be weary of as I do on the daily. The moment you lose a first game, it’s all downhill from there. All because the opponent broke first as per usual.
Good game but some aspects are bad
by Troybal81 on 2020/09/11 03:15
I have been looking for a game that would get me to play for a long time to pass time. This game got me to play multiple games of pool against people around the world. It tells you the win rate that you have and how much coins you have accumulated over your career. There is a extremely large variation of pool sticks that all have different stats and you can even spin the ball. Plus there are a lot of mini games you can play like scratchers, lucky shot, and spin to win. They also have 9 ball and no guidelines. The one thing that is EXTREMELY Noticeable is the spin and win is very rigged. It says the most you can win is 1 m coins but I highly doubt that has ever happened. The most I have ever in my life gotten was 700 coins with my vip bonus. I have been playing for over a ye at hand had this game before then. I have probably spun that wheel 100 times and not gotten over 700 coins. Clearly some parts of the game are rigged but also I’m not paying 20 bucks on a game every day they come out with a new “deal” which is usually just one pool stick and coins and cash.
Pretty Good.
by KoochieSlayer69 on 2020/04/22 02:54
It’s nice to play but what I have noticed is that all I get from the wheel spin is either 100 or 250 coins which is kinda annoying especially if I spend money to get wheel spins and also the pool cue meter which I always accidentally hit and only inches the ball forward allowing the other person to win. Update: What I’ve noticed is that if I make the smallest mistake the other person is able to move the ball anywhere(which is dumb) and I am in the lead 1-5 and the person is able to hit all of the balls in even though earlier they were bottling the whole time hitting it as hard as they can and then turn on decide to turn on sicko mode and win even I should have but some of the rules don’t really make since like one time I hit the opponents striped ball to hit in mine and made it only to have the opponent to be able to move the ball anywhere and then eventually win Overall I think they should fix some rules and get rid of pool cue recharge and in get rid of the rule where if you make a tiny mistake the opponent is able to move the ball anywhere
Unfair advantages for lower levels!:(
by the taci eater on 2020/05/12 16:42
It’s unfair because lower levels can always win just because they are worse players. It doesn't make any sense that every time I play against players 9-16 level players I always lose and I’ve been play for over 5 months and I’m level 21 with yellow rank so I don’t get it please read whole review but it’s going to be looong. Putting me against people higher levels then me just so i lose: They put me against people higher levels then me in $5000 game and all in game just so I can lose it’s no fair for low levels like me it should be SBMM (Skill Based Match Making) which means I should go against people that is level 21 or 22 so I don’t know why when I do all in I’m going against a level 30-50 players like unfair right so I should stop playing but I don’t give up and there is a glitch when I practice in offline play it says play again for $25 when I do but it doesn’t work so I keep pressing it but then it says I don’t have enough money I check my money I have about $0 left when I hade $1000 sooooo, but other then that it’s a great game.
Good game but I don’t like the new update
by WiggleBiggle on 2020/09/25 22:31
If you like playing pool, you’ll like this game. It is fun to play and once you complete the tutorial you’ll find you got the hang of it pretty quickly. The game levels you up by “xp”(experience points) and the amount of tokens/coins you win. I’m not sure what the top level is but I have seen players whose lvls are 100+. My only complaint about the game is a recent update they made, you used to win 1 ring per 20ish games you won per “location” you played at (Ex: one of the 1v1 game “location” is “London pub”) but they just changed it to trophies which forces you to spend more tokens and play the higher cost games (Ex: you “bet” 100 tokens to win 200... etc.). I don’t like how it forces you to play higher up games as it makes me feel like it’s less about winning/having fun/skill up and more about spending more/or making in-game purchases. It would be nice to opt for a hybrid of both systems so that as long as you’re winning you can still skill up/lvl up rather than the focus being on spending. Still a super fun game and recommend.
Programmed to lose and buy
by SoulCycler on 2019/11/03 09:53
This would be a great game if not for the bait-and-switch UI (user interface) and gaming algorithm that skews probability against players. I’ve played 17K+ games over 3+ years, reached level 154 and potted 72k+ balls earning an aggregate of 1.39B coins. What I’ve observed over time is the more you win, the more skewed the game becomes against you so the chances or scratching increases over time. I’ve watched the cue ball change trajectory and speed up after slowing down. Another example is the ‘Spin and Win’ wheel. It has 15 slots each with a different prize so the chances of hitting any slot should be 1 out of 15 or 6.67%. However after thousands of spins, I’ve only hit the same 2 slots with the lowest awards so it’s clearly rigged. The game is designed with a click-baiting user interface (ui) intended to increase chances or accidental in-game purchases and entry into the highest stakes games resulting in loss of all coins so players ‘buy’ the coins back. Also beware of cheats who manipulate the game so when it’s your turn, they force you to wait until your time runs out. The intent of this game is to make money through online in-game purchases. Fight the urge to buy. Just play at smaller stakes tables to earn enough coins to advance to the next level.
Quit pairing me with people 4 times my level!

I’ve had this game for a little while now and I’ve been growing better and better at it. I wish I could say I have been having fun with the game but I’m not. After I spent $6.99 on an in app purchase I have been paired up with players who are 4 times my level or higher. It’s not fair or easy. Another thing I’ve noticed is the constant pop ups showing you what deals you can buy. They will randomly open up after you exit a game and it’s very easy to accidentally tap one. The game is essentially rigged to make you purchase more coins by putting you up against people who don’t miss a shot. If you don’t get the break then you might as well quit the game right there. The devs really need to add skill based matchmaking. That way a level 18 player can’t be paired with a level 157 player. In what world does that make sense? Anyways it’s a fun game to play if you need to kill time. I don’t recommend trying to gain coins too quickly though otherwise they will pair you with level 500 no life Indians.

I love playing this game
I am baffled of how dumb you can make games.
by Publord Phoenix on 2021/01/22 19:17
This game would be fun if you could actually win. Wide open shots somehow miss, but the bots somehow make trick shot in. And the match making is horrible too. You also get bombarded with dumb advertisements saying to pay tons of money for some cue sticks. No one would willing pay their hard earned money to have a dumb cue stick. I also was paired up with someone who was level 81, and my level was 13 at the time. Please help fix this game.

This company is a greedy money hog!
by miniclip is a scam on 2021/01/22 14:46
I had 18 spin and win spins. If you haven’t played, you spin the wheel to earn coins or other prizes (example: scratchers). There are 15 spots total and 12 of the 15 are coin slots to win. I spun it 18 times and the highest coin amount I Earned was 500. And if that isn’t enough proof, of those 18, I rolled 150 coins about 7-8 times. After my spins, it asked, “would you like to buy a spin for an extra chance to win?”. This game is nothing short of a scammer company doing scammy things. I hope they read my comment and personally feel offended for making such a greedy, pathetic game.
Can you guys add this to ios decices ?
by 8 ball pool Redion on 2021/01/22 13:31
I've been using 8 ball pool for a while now and it's been a great game.I play it every time but there is one thing that you guys need to add. On Android phones there is this feature when you click the free coins if you watch a video it shows that if you watch a video you will recive 15 coins,or 1 cash and you have this feature when it says free coins with offers.This was a cool feature on android phones and it helped me get a lot of coins by playing games. So can you guys add free coins with offers on IOS devices please?

Everytime my opponent shoots it lines up perfectly for them. It always hides behind a ball for me. Or scratch. To much computer controlled. The most rigged game ever. Just watched my ball about to hit the rail and it curves into the pocket so I scratched. 😡🤬🤬😡🤬. RIGGED RIGGED RIGGED RIGGED RIGGED RIGGED RIGGED RIGGED RIGGED RIGGED RIGGED. EVERYTIME I SHOOT I SCRATCHED. MY OPPONENTS ARE MAKING SHOOTS THAT ARE NOT MAKEABLE everytime I got the last shot to win it scratches. You can’t tell me this game ain’t rigged. If you write a bad review it puts you on some list to make you constantly lose.

MASSIVE RIP OFF!
by BenJF3 on 2021/01/21 21:28
This game is a ridiculous RIP OFF!!! Know that going in. The algorithm is programmed to cheat you base on streaks and wager amounts. Just play and you’ll see what I mean. It’s almost comical if it weren’t so blatant. I just ran a table down to the 9 ball and on the last super easy shot where I put ZERO English on it, the ball magically rimmed out of the pocket. Now, what was the difference? I used a straight edge to line up the shot even. The difference was I had won the previous 6 matches at 100 coin wagers and decided why not move to the 10000 coin wager. Do that and the next match up will be rigged. 8 Ball Rip Off! My advice is DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON THIS GAME!!! Play at the free play level for minimum bets to use as a time killer like I do. Also, if you get to break you’ll likely scratch on the break. I just kept track after 10 matches where I had the break and 8 of them the cue ball scratched. It’s programmed this way. My best advice is use the “Leave Game” button once you get cheated. It saves a lot of time. UPDATE! They’ve added a new rip off scam tactic!!! Upon starting your turn, the timer begins half way or further down so you have no time to line up a shot and have to rush thereby missing or not even getting the shot off. It’s a friggin joke!!! CHEAT CITY!!! Just cost me 1000 coin wager. LAME!!!

Charged me $33 for $1.99 purchase. No way to get my money back!
by sauceymob on 2021/01/21 20:38
I was charged more than I authorized a couple times using this app but it was always for under a dollar. This time around the app charged me $33 for a $1.99 purchase. I have no way of getting my money back. As many times as it has happened to me I am sure it happens to thousand upon thousand of people each day which probably adds up to millions of free dollars each month for this app. They truly don’t care as long as we are supporting their bankrolls, houses, cars etc. SMH. $33 might not matter to them but it does for us who live paycheck to paycheck. So sad.

Multiple times after lots of play and coin savings the app freezes, you lose your game and all the coins. Probably purposefully bad because it’s super pushy with buying packages and they want that. Deleted a couple times but I’m legit done. Don’t recommmend.

The ball does not go that fast in real pool if you aim for one ball and hit it as hard as you can a completely different ball goes in the hole it is a bad game you have to pay in game currency to play offline

Good at first.
by Jokr3019 on 2021/01/20 07:36
It was good at first when you play at the first few moment of experience but that’s when you noticed there’s some of the things I noticed were odd. First I just have to say that it’s rigged. Yeah. I said it! Rigged. The reason why is that I keep losing to someone by missing simple shots that I know should’ve made it because I know I aimed at very closely right at the center or when I actually made my striped ball and then it was my opponent’s turn when I should’ve still had my turn. I just think there’s something weird about it. The suspicious don’t just come from the air. Another thing is that when I tried to purchase the Golden Spin. It didn’t go through so I attempted to purchase it numerously thinking the transaction didn’t go through as well. It turns out that this app took about $10.00 out of me when I didn’t receive anything in return. That would be the definition of theft and I think that, based upon the reviews that I read about this app, people also have similar complaints about this game so it would be better if you actually do something. Sure I’m aware that it could be my fault that I miss some shot that were easy to make but I know what I saw. If you don’t believe me, play this game and then you’ll find out for yourself. So that would be my takeaway of that part of that experience. The other part was mostly good and keeps me distracted at the first time I did play and did win some of the matches but I just need someone who manages this to fix something about this. That’s my strong suggestion if you want to keep my customers happy and not think that they’re being ripped off somehow. This is not being a sore loser, this is what I and many other users experienced but I like playing pool because it’s the only that keeps me distracted at this point but I won’t quit your game because I’m not going act like a sore loser because that’s not what I am.

Fun, But Unfair and Frustrating
by VNGELO on 2021/01/19 21:57
Honestly, I don't even know where to start. This game is absolutely ridiculous. As addicting as it is, it's also rigged to the max and very frustrating. App developers are compensated by how much time we spend playing the game which is why it's so appealing, but let's talk about how RIGGED IT IS. For starters, it's a money trap. The daily spin is a joke. You're not gonna will no more than 250 coins and I've seen some people say 500, but they must've gotten lucky or something because 75-250 coins is max for unless it's the Golden Spin. Also, everything you win besides your cues is designed to be taken away from you.. especially your coins. I've won 10+ games multiple times and my winning percentage is 57% so I'm pretty good obviously. Well recently I won 12 games in a row and out of those 12 I played probably 8-9 $20,000 games winning $10,000 each time and maybe 3-4 $5,000 games.. well this is how it's rigged. How can somebody like me win all those times and then lose literally 7-8 games in a row? Like c'mon that's impossible. Just like all the good cues that win cost SO MUCH to recharge them. I remember purchasing 36 scratchers for $4.99 and scratched off tons of money. Well how about after everything I had won I mistakenly clicked on $500,000 game which I NEVER done before since I had the app and it took $250,000 of my coins to play which was everything I had won off scratchers and I ended up losing the game so I played 1 $250,000 game and 3 $50,000 totaling $400,000 to get my money back and I knew it was rigged because as soon as the game ended, an ad popped up for $504,000 coins for $4.99 which would have put me back at the exact same amount I was at before losing all my money. TRUST ME, IT IS RIGGED. I'm convinced the only people who enjoy this game are the ones that have money growing on trees to spend on this app, but people like myself and others that wanna build up cues and earn coins/cash by playing and actually beating people fair & square gets cheated by the app algorithms. It's sad, but it's true.

I was doing something else and I hit the home button to turn on my phone. The app had it set up so that I was approving a $20 payment when I put my thumb down. DELETE it off your phone!!!

Don’t be deceived by the ratings, 5 stars are people who waste money in this game. Playable at lower levels, but once reach high levels it’s near impossible to win unless you first buy something. If you get in a match with someone with the pool pass just leave because you will lose.

Couple issues
by The Neighborhood Walker on 2021/01/19 06:38
This isn’t my first complaint. While scrolling through the tables and games, I have accidentally hit play rather than trying to do a ‘look see”. Two million coins have been lost. When starting a new game, we should be asked if we are sure and not just starting and taking our hard earned coins. A second VERY irritating issue is ‘joe blow’ challenged you when you were offline. Then being told that ‘Jane doe’ was recently online. I could care less who was when I wasn’t. Tell us ‘who is’ not ‘who was’. I can only play people who are online at same time, those who were. Fix these issues please and get five stars.

The only thing that’s wrong with this game is that I want to change my name to something else but I can’t.
Dislike how I went down from over 100 level to under 50 when I somehow combine 2 accounts mistakenly
by ihatethisreviewnicknamecrap on 2021/01/19 01:09
Please help me get back my normal account . I’ve tried many times. I use to play daily now I don’t care to play,not sure how to contact you guys so I’m writing here.
Mesmerizing game
by ayodeleart on 2021/01/19 00:00
What a good game Can you just put microphone in it so that I can communicate with a friend through voice Thank you
Just want to say
by babyshark_remix123 on 2021/01/18 23:23
I just want to say all the people that hate pool you can go and kick rocks I don’t care want you think and when you say 8 pool backwards you get loop 8 and that means nothing just like your opinion sooooo you can get out of here but anyways this game is the best
Should make some changes
by z93018 on 2021/01/18 23:19
Would be a lot better game if they actually followed legit pool rules! Would make the game more enjoyable instead of people just getting lucky with random shots!
Playing against bots
by BobBanta on 2021/01/18 23:09
I really thought I would like this game, but after playing at least 50 times I’m convinced you are playing against bots. Unfortunately, this means that in many (most?) games the winner is predetermined. If the game wants you to lose, you WILL lose. As others have mentioned, you line up a shot that should be straight into the hole and it misses. Not by a little - by a lot. I mean hitting the cushion outside the pocket and on the rail. Also, you might be beating an opponent that is struggling and all of a sudden they make 5 shots in a row to beat you. Even difficult ones. The last straw for me was that while I was playing well, building coins and increasing levels, I was playing opponents who were at very similar levels. Then I started playing in the more expensive rooms (higher bets) and suddenly I’m matched against players who are 30 to 40 levels above me. A couple of times they cleared the table and I didn’t get to shoot. I felt as though the game wanted me to lose a whole bunch of coins so that they could sell me more. Graphics are great but the game play needs a lot of work.
Love the game but ..
by p-rice22 on 2021/01/18 23:07
Can you guys please patch whatever bug is going on in the 9 ball tournament I will make a ball in off the break and it will give the next play to the other opponent ?! Also every shot the balls are rearranging right in front of you on the tournament which has caused me to lose a few matches now and it’s getting ridiculous!
Great game but little issue
by Game guy✌️ on 2021/01/18 22:21
I really like this game but some thing that bugs me is one mini game; specifically the spin and win It says that you could win 100000 or a scratcher but you only win up to 250, which makes the spin and win rigged. Please Fix it. Agin It is really fun game.

Complaint
by Cleatice on 2021/01/18 20:28
Very unfair and aggravating! Games must be manipulated. You can make a ball then it’s your opponent’s shot. I’ve potted balls only to have them reappear and it says I’m out of time. Why aren’t reviews listed in order of their post ? Very frustrated!

The app is temperamental.
by Stand4USA on 2021/01/18 17:43
On many occasions it starts to spool like it is thinking. Glitchy at times. I have closed the game an then restarted playing from beginning because I thought it would fix the problem but it hasn’t. The support for it is spotty.
Awesome

Great game
This game is awful.
by Kassie&Benny on 2021/01/18 16:46
The mechanics of the daily spin only allow you to win the lowest amount of money possible. At one point had 900K coins and lost 17 games straight to bots, losing every one of my coins. I bought the pool pass and the game only allows you to level up with trophies, but with the money I had only allowed me to play in arenas where I already had all of the trophies. This means that my $5 was absolutely wasted because they set up the game to scan you, not make your playing experience better. Overall, if you have an ounce of a brain cell you won’t download this game because regardless of how good you are, the game will always win.
Rigged
by toejam86 on 2021/01/18 15:34
The game is rigged and has bots and allows people to cheat. This is absurd. I don’t know how this is an editors choice. For what? Game manipulation?
Fun way to pass time
by Prettykool520 on 2020/09/01 17:10
I thoroughly enjoy this game for several reasons: firstly, it is simple enough to where one can explore the game and understand it quickly, making it less of a hassle than games with unnecessary features; I also enjoy the minimal placement of ads in this game, they are far in between and don’t irritate the user by appearing in the way of things. Additionally, the gameplay itself is entertaining as you get to play with other people around the world, and as you play you can unlock new cities as well as prizes and coins for winning. There are events in this game that run weekly, offering additional opportunities for prizes for players to win. There are even special mini games for players, such as a daily “Lucky Shot” and the ability to spin a wheel for prizes. And while there are numerous prizes available, the game remains challenging enough in that you may lose some of your earnings if you lose against an opponent. Overall, it’s a game worth playing! My only issue is with the slightly consistent request to purchase in game features—however, this alone doesn’t deter me from rating this game as excellent, as it is easy to close out of these requests.
Great Game, but a few problems
by Seraphim1313 on 2020/08/26 18:56
So I Love this game. It’s great to pass time with and I’ve always enjoyed it. The reason why I’m giving only 4 stars and not 5 is because of a few problems I have noticed within the game. First of all, the daily spins you get (and also including the spins you earn from the pool pass) is completely rigged. Whenever I spin I always get 250 coins (with vip points too) EVERY SINGLE TIME. And whenever I get a second spin from watching a video, I always get 100 coins. It happens every single time I open the app and when I get that spin. I’ve never spun anything higher than maybe 500 coins before and that’s IF I get lucky. The second thing is partially my fault, but also the apps fault as well. I’ve noticed that whenever I pot a ball when I’m playing against someone and aim it spot on and I know for a fact it will go in, it doesn’t and completely misses. Sometimes I notice that it could have been my fault, but there have been many other times where it wasn’t and it just happens to miss and then it’s my opponents turn and they end up winning even though I should have clearly won. I’m not being a sore loser about it, but I definitely know when I should have won a match based on how I know a ball should have been potted into a hole. Besides these two major problems, I don’t have much complaint about the game. It’s super fun and very enjoyable..!
Game as addicting as it is frustrating
by Mr thizzle on 2021/01/07 01:33
Eight ball pool has some really fun features like prizes you can unlock by completing missions, and can be addicting - especially while your first playing the game. They make sure your first several days of playing are filled with winning, prizes, bonuses - all of which add to the fun of actually playing pool against people from around the world. After the first few days though I began to get more and more frustrated, and lose more and more games. It also seems to be one of the few games I’ve ever played or practice does not make perfect. My win percentage consistently is declining as is my ability to make basic shotsOn a consistent basis. The prizes that were once so easily gained now seem to mostly be available through purchase. In between every match you’re getting pop-up windows to pay for cues and mini games and cash in coins. And by that point you may be tempted, as losing prevents you from getting prizes and depletes your coin bank. There’s also a lot of talk about the game being potentially rigged, or algorithms and bots serving to increase your chance of losing, especially on the high coon tables. And I’ve certainly experienced enough perplexing and frustrating losses against opponents with really terrible win percentages to make me a bit suspicious. Overall it’s an OK game as long as you don’t take it too seriously and I would not recommend paying for coins or prizes with actual money.
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. 🙄
Nothing but a money trap
by never agian83 on 2020/09/11 05:31
Ok so I figured it out I think.. you play other players in the lower levels and lose. A lot. You only win just enough to get hooked, unless you pay big bucks, you’ll never see the higher levels. Why? Well. The game limits how far you go. How? If you miss one shot. I mean just one, the other players, (which some are the computer posing as real people) can run the whole table without you getting another shot AT ALL. Then you lose your coins and get kicked back to a lower level. The cycle repeats itself until you are scrambling to win your money back to compete in higher levels. Once you start getting close, your shots start to get off and your aim isn’t accurate (I literally screen recorded me playing and witnessed on the slow mo playback that even tho my aim was right, the computer made me miss the shot). Then you have to spend more coins to recharge your stick. They then give you spins and free coins, 100 to 300 coins a pop to keep you playing. After realizing you can’t beat the game, you go ahead and spend money to purchase more coins to play at higher levels, the cycle goes on and on until next thing you know, you’re back at no coins and either have to play at the lower stages or pay again to temporarily play at the higher ones. This game is a money trap and I’ll only play it to pass the time. But don’t expect to really win much.
I believe this game is fixed
by Jackie Martling on 2020/07/19 11:46
After playing the entire quarantine, the game can definitely be fun but I have strong suspicions that it is slightly fixed. Before people say I’m just bad or a sore loser, my winning percentage is much better than chance. However I believe it’s advantageous to the app makers to encourage players to pay real cash in the app. Therefore they are incentivized to keep you on the edge losing just enough to frustrate you but not enough to make purchasing extra coins or cash or cues out of the question or unnecessary. The amount of inconsistent ball rolls and inexplicable scratches on the 8 ball have begun to add up after 3 months. I found a reddit thread with similar complaints. Think about it, even the cues losing their charge is geared toward eating your coins so you constantly require more. I refuse to spend real money on a game so I will never pay but I really hope people understand this game is likely fixed in some way. I also believe there are bots playing against you in many games. Ever notice in some games the opposing player points at many of your balls first before finding his ball? That screams “trial and error” bot to me. Overall I have fun playing this game but strongly encourage people to watch out. Additionally it seems there are cheats that real humans can use too. Ever notice some players can nail extremely difficult shots without fail. Save your money. Expect frustration. Enjoy the parts of it you can I guess.
Like the game, but many areas of frustration.
by John in USA on 2020/01/13 14:49
Way too many ads for “deals.” I’m always the lucky recipient of pool cue “pieces” that I don’t want. I upgraded my cue and I’m fine with it. I don’t need 25 other cues that are no where as good as mine! The daily spin is fixed! 90% of spins land on 50, 100 or 500. Any sensible person would be able to figure out that it’s rigged. Scratchers are the same, I’ve had a few big ones but I know they are just to bait me. And the trash talk and silly slang comments are not for any mature adult, I have disabled the chat feature (once I found out you could) and I enjoy the game much more without being harassed by juvenile acting people. Sometimes I feel like I’m playing with bots. I believe when I began the game a few years ago, I played every single person in India. Now all I get are people in Brazil. Nothing wrong with either country, just makes you wonder how your opponents are chosen and if everything with this game is on the up and up. Like I said, it’s fun....just don’t spend a lot of money, play within your means, disable chat unless you like it and be careful when selecting your game, it’s programmed to put you in the most expensive game you can afford and I’ve been suckered early on into some high coin games because I was too quick with my finger. Slide, don’t tap lol.
Good game!! Except!!!!
by JMKastner on 2019/03/20 19:40
Would of given this five stars, but sometimes I get booted from a match and lose my coins, even if I'm winning or I get booted then it brings me back, I missed my turn and the other player has ball in hand! Really?!? Sometimes in the very beginning of the game when you get the spin to win I will start spinning and it will automatically click into update mode and then I won’t win whatever the spin table lands on, it won’t even show me what it landed on. It just goes right into the game and I lose that turn. Then, I’m a level 50 and consistently the game puts me up against a level 120+!! are you +*^%#*# serious?! Needless to say yesterday I had over 1 million coins now I’m down to not even half that. You should have the option to see who you’re up against and you should have the option to back out of that match before the match starts and before your coins are dropped into the pot.! I mean think about it, when you go to a real pool hall in real life you get to see the person or persons play before you play them and then if they ask you to play them you can decide whether you want to or not before the match starts or before you put up any money. I’m just saying give us a choice on whether we want to play against that guy or girl that is 70+ levels ahead of us!
Fun & sometimes Rage inducing 😂
by Color Switch Player D on 2020/04/08 18:32
There are times where I absolutely hate the game because I keep losing to people with a higher skill level than me. The way they select your opponent is completely random, which on one note can be pretty fun. But then on another note, you got someone who is a skill level 16 (like me) playing up against a skill level 131 or even higher. (I have seen on the world leaderboard someone with a skill level of 972) Which can seem pretty unfair, but winning against them is not impossible, but it is really hard. I do like most of the concepts in the game. The fact that you can get a huge amount of cues in your collection is pretty sweet. With more cues, you have a ton of different advantages. And the general designs of some of the cues are really nice. When it comes to the games themselves, they are pretty simple, but you do have to make sure you aim correctly. Because sometimes when it seems like you have a perfect aim, it could actually go a bit lower or a bit higher than what you think, so just keep note of that. Overall it is a pretty fun game, but for those who tend to have a little gamer rage, this game can certainly get you a little mad when you get put up against someone that is super experienced.
Great, needs some work
by Masoon 88 on 2019/10/29 03:41
They keep offering me a chance to review even though I already did. So here are some things I think could be improved. 1) Please add an "open all" for the prize box opening, it takes too long to open all of them, I just want to get back to game play. 2) Friend requests -I get friend requests from the players who have beaten me (almost solely), if I'm not set up to have friends, I should be able to block all requests. Currently I have to x each of them out and it's a nuisance. Plus I am sick of these petty sore winners wanting to jab at me just because they beat me, winning should be enough. 3) Special offers swipe down suddenly when you go to open boxes or select game play making players accidentally select purchases. Obviously I don't buy stuff that I accidentally select, but I think it's rude of the game maker to try that tactic. If they are doing it so that folks who are stupid, young or inexperienced enough to buy because they think they are obligated to, then that's sort of stealing. Other than those three things this game is great. It's cool to be sitting in Kentucky playing a woman in Indonesia, win or lose.
This WAS a good game...
by P.D.347 on 2018/03/29 20:38
I've been playing this game for a couple of years now and have really, really, liked it. Until this week. Some ppl just can't leave well enough alone. The commercial content and coin collecting aspect of it had been tolerable until the latest changes. If you want to play slot machines, and trash talk with friends, then maybe you will get some enjoyment out of it. But for the pool purist, or someone interested in actually playing an accurate computer sim of the game, keep looking. This game is now catered to the kids... A pool stick that you have to continually pay credits to recharge? Ridiculous. So sad to see the end of my favorite ipad game... Hey guys at Miniclip, how about reinvesting in making the game actually better? Instead you're just constantly inventing different ways to get another few dollars out of everyone. Also, it's a little fishy how out of my thousands of daily spins, I seem to land on $100 about 80% of the time... and, I don't EVER recall winning anything other than a thousand bucks or so on a "Scratcher." I wouldn't play these at all if I weren't forced to, so if you're going to force ppl to play, you could at least make it fair. Oh, and enough with the bazillion different pool sticks! Geeeez!
Unfair
by Unfair/rigged on 2020/10/09 01:28
I’ve been playing this game for a while, but after I write this review I’m deleting this app. First off why should you have to play a player 300 levels above you, you don’t stand a chance. Every time you think your doing good and might win a game, boom straight line shots that you know will go in don’t. The daily spins are rigged and will never give you more that 500 coins. Second once you get to about level 50, you never win, if you even get a shot at all the player your playing is going to win 90% of the time. All it want you to do is lose your coins so you have to buy more. I have never paid actual money for coins and never will. The clubs are so rigged it’s crazy, join a club and you will se yourself, if you don’t pay 8$ a week for pro membership you are playing against someone that plays Venice witch is 150million for a win and don’t have a chance in winning! It’s a money driven game and if you don’t pay for the membership or pay for coins it’s impossible to level up. And the rings are a joke. Now mini clip made it impossible to get any decent cues and forget about getting a legendary cue if you don’t pay you will never get one. Now you have cue trophies? And other rigged tiers you are trying to get it’s simply UNFAIR for new players.
Well it WAS great . . .
by Guitar Girl Rocks on 2019/07/11 20:27
As for actual pool game goes, it’s pretty accurate except a couple odds and ends like, if you pot the 8 ball on break you really won the game — this doesn’t do that. There were a minor glitch or two here and there in the app. But not really that big of an issue that’d really interfere with your playing. Before the latest update my biggest two complaints were the fake/bot players and not having the ability to sell your pool cues that you no longer use. But now, since the latest update, on my iPhone it won’t load and on my iPad it forecloses every time I enter into a game. The only way I can play is in practice mode. As before, the ads are annoying af and as well as the constant cue upgrades on cues I NEVER USE. I do find the game a little rigged. Once you get your coins up a good bit, suddenly it hard to win games and you’re paired up with someone who’s at a greatly more level then you (for example: you’re level 22 and the person you’re playing against is at level 122). And this app hates slow connection speeds, it either won’t load or freezes up periodically during play. I hope the app developers fixes the bugs since the latest update for the iPhone and iPad. On my MacBook Pro, through Facebook’s website it’s ok, but not great.
Rigged/Pay2WinOdds
by Tsquiddly on 2020/04/16 05:15
I’ve played for years now. Every here and there when I get the chance and feel like playing. But I decided to do a little study on the games mechanics and assistance. You could win 20 games in a row in Las Vegas (10,000 buy-in) if you tried but as soon as you move beyond that, you’ll see that you’ll get a lot more “guest” player opponents. They will somehow hit the most impossible sloppy shots, always the perfect amount of power to line up their next shot and you won’t even get a chance to play. Now I know there are players who are just that good with a lot of time into the game... but I ran an algorithm on recorded game play based on the odds of winning with diff buy in amounts and a 2nd based on odds of winning (same buy ins)after making in game purchases - both with all shots made at full power for the baseline. Out of the 20 matches I did for each analysis, I’ve concluded that you’re approx 15-35% (depending on the price of the IGP and or quantity) more likely to win after making an in game purchase. Strictly playing without purchases at full power, the farther you progress in buy-in price, the game will shuffle through a few ways of how it reacts to your shots. You could attempt the same shot(Same angle too) 3 times and each time it would be different. If you read this far, do what you will with the info. That concludes my findings. Thanks
More languages and option to change flags in game.
by xerhina09 on 2019/04/25 12:43
The game is great but how about adding two or three more languages... If you guys ever played these days, you'd find a lot of Indonesian players and it would be nice to add their language so they can understand it. There's even a YouTuber for 8BP called "Prisma" who is Indonesian [🇮🇩] and maybe you could make it easier for them. Also, as a Filipino national, please add Tagalog (Filipino) [🇵🇭] into the game because even if you've added Russian and German, I haven't encountered many people with the German (🇩🇪), Austrian (🇦🇹) or Russian (🇷🇺) Flag <Eben if these aren't all Russian and/or German [🇦🇹, 🇧🇪, 🇩🇪, 🇳🇦 and 🇨🇭], speaking countries, I just wanted to add them only>, which makes me assume / or be confused they're what they seem to be. So another option I'd want to add is to change my flag because I want to change my flag to the flag of the Philippines (🇵🇭) instead of what I have now (🇶🇦). I want to add this feature because when I got my account to be added in my game, it showed my flag was for Qatar (🇶🇦). Another thing, I want to add Urdu [🇵🇰] because a lot of Pakistani players are among of whom I've encountered.
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.

by Chescabear on 2021/01/15 14:22
I don’t write reviews very often but I wanted to for this one. First off, thanks for making it entertaining enough that I want to spend 5.00 for the pool pass. So many game programmers developed a game and just expect that the players will put out cash just because. Something I really hate... But I do have a small complaint about your game. Let’s say I’m in the middle of a 5000 game of 9 ball. A friend comes online and challenged me. I leave the game I’m playing and the matchup just keeps spinning with no connection to my friend. This is extremely irritating because the matchup never works. It cannot be that hard to make it work. Especially if the friend is right here in the U.S. I’m matched up with complete strangers from all over the world, but cannot get hooked up with a friend that is in another state..... Please fix this. And then my review will change to 5 stars. Until that time, 4 is the best I can give. Thank you. Hello, I paid for the pool pass, and was going to collect this morning but my prize money isn’t available. It’s just showing that the next pool pass starts in 68 hours. How can I collect my prize money. If I’m unable to, the review will drop to a single star. Just saying. Thanks.
Algorithm determines who will win
by milpilot9138 on 2020/04/23 12:41
Full disclosure, I’ve only been playing this game for a few days (albeit, for about 7 hours each day — hey, I’m self-isolating :)), but I’ve already noticed the most annoying feature. First the good...great graphics, lots of choices of play, and you are able to upgrade cues fairly quickly if you play a lot. Now the bad...it seems it is sometimes predetermined who the computer wants to win the game. I have — on many, many occasions — been down to my last ball (or two) after running the table. I will hit the next shot in the pocket only to have the computer suspiciously make my ball roll farther than it normally would have and to place it in a position which I cannot finish the game. At first, I thought it was just me. But after many an experiment with using the exact amount of power to roll the ball towards the end of the game, I have found it is very consistently inconsistent towards the conclusion. It is almost that the computer algorithm wants to make it exciting towards the finish line. I DO NOT like games which the computer determines outcomes. If you are okay with this situation, then by all means, play this game. It is not bad other than this “algorithmic anomaly”. It is, though, the prime reason I WILL NEVER pay any actual money to purchase anything from game developers that do this to their games.
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.
Beware of what city is defaulted upon entering!
by Luvthatspeed on 2019/03/17 12:27
I love this game but a MAJOR gripe I have is the defaulted city displayed as you enter the game. The higher rank and more coins you have the default city changes. If you have 100,001 coins, it will default to Toronto and if you are not careful you can accidentally select Toronto as you try to swipe to another city. If you accidentally select and lose, now you have 1 coin remaining. Obviously this is not a design flaw but a design in order to make it flawed so you undoubtedly need to purchase coins to continue to play. Really pisses me off as I had earned alot of coins at lower levels by winning alot and with one mistake it cost me $2.5M coins. I lost to a “person” without ever having a turn...break and run. There is also no option to back out...once you select a city, thats it! You are playing that city. At a minimum, there ought to be an option that prompts you to confirm if you really want to play that city. This would have saved me millions of coins four of the five times I have accidentally made a selection on a city I did not want to play!
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
Game instability only gets worse w/time; WAY worse.
by babySamsMom on 2020/03/05 07:51
Same bugs/obvious algorithm cheats & player hacks are worse 5+ yrs later! Same glitches-worsened w/time. I experience SAME bizarre probs reported for yrs by the masses! PLUS, now seeing entirely new mutations of BS. Last 24 hrs of play-no matter if I win/lose; chg to new game@new/diff level of play-higher stakes, etc.,I am not given my turns at the break?! Even tried rebooting, etc.,zilch...Not once..game used to trade off :( not anymore?? 12+games-not given any of my many rightful turns to break Updates are now worthless waste of GIANT data gobbling inconveniences. ZERO fixes/improvements! Wthell is going on at miniclip? You seemed to have a very successful, fun & lucrative gig going. It’s slipping/slipped thru your hands. Your most devoted, longstanding & loyal patrons are bored with the lack of accountability. Truly disheartening/disappointing. No effective measures taken to correct CORE probs. No help given to rectify wrongdoing-loss of coins, game drops, time/clock hacking-sinking shots only to have ball(s) “pop” back out of pocket, loss of turn AND remaining balls in play are SCRAMBLED!?!?? Wld Love some actual remedies in the form of restoration of lost coinage/credits/vip levels/badge tiers that deliver on their promises?! Explanations welcomed-as is-this is just plain sad, it’s reflection of Y-O-U...
English
by Delete123 on 2019/11/07 22:13
For the most part they have the physics pretty good, but no cigar. Using reverse English will land your cue ball in a pocket, for a scratch shot. You can almost bet the farm on it. More than not. I thought that maybe it wasn’t a glitch and it wouldn’t happen if you upgraded my stick to the highest level. No such luck. My stick is upgraded to the max and it scrTches every time if using hard English. It’s maddening and costs you game after game. Because most games usually hinge on one particular shot, that if it happens that it’s a hard English shot (hard meaning striking the cue ball with some power, pace) it’ll cost you the game. I’ve seen the cue ball seemingly go around other balls, like a guided missile to end up in the pocket forfeiting my shot and a lot of times the game. For such a good game to have such a glaring bug is a shame. By the way, there was a period in my life, I made my living shooting pool. So I know how English is suppose to work. And in this case, not work. That’s my only tic about the game. And after all it’s just a game, designed for entertainment, so if never fixed it won’t really matter. Just a game I’ve had a lot of fun playing. As the saying goes: if this is as bad as it gets, we’re in good shape. Enjoy
Big Bug
by Finchman123 on 2020/10/06 17:34
I’ve had this game for 6 years now and have played it on and off the entire time. There is a new bug I’ve noticed the past couple weeks that resulted in a warning that my account could be reset because the system thinks I’m hacking. The past three weeks I’ve noticed that any time I win a game, the coins I win don’t count toward the leaderboards. So for the past three weeks my account shows that I haven’t gained any winnings despite winning a few dozen games each week. I think because of this bug the app’s anti cheat software flagged my profile for going up roughly 10M coins but not showing any wins. Overall, this is a really fun game and a great way to pass the time (I mean, it has retained me as a player for 6 years). I would be really upset and probably never return to the game if I were to lose 6 years of progress including being level 150, have a collection power of 60, a gold tier VIP member, and 755M lifetime winnings due to a bug that is outside of my control. This is a very serious bug and needs to be fixed quickly or they will lose a long time player who has bought all of the premium season passes and plans to continue to do so.
Update
by Babbs81 on 2020/09/05 22:16
I used to think that this app was a 5 star app. This week it has gone down to a 3. After this last update everything worked fine, but, now it’s very frustrating to play. I like being competitive with my friends and in the club I’m in, but, this past week, when I win a game, I will get the winning coins in my player page, but, when I go to my friends page or my club page, there are no coins...Zero and it doesn’t matter how many games I win, it still says zero. Very frustrating when you like to compete with people. I have already been kicked out of a good club because I can’t increase my coins off of zero. So, I have tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, but, it is still the same way. And I live in the United States and it has me living in Canada now. There’s no way that I have found to change it back to the US. If this can’t be fixed, without me losing my level that I’m at and all my coins and money that I have, then I’m ready to delete the app and be done with it. I would hate to do that because I play it a lot and like the competition, but, if there is no competition there is no sense in playing anymore. Please try to fix this problem and I’ll change my rating back.
Updates to think about
by Theawesome0103 on 2019/09/25 23:44
I’ve been playing for a long time and defiantly have thought about possible updates for this game. First - I wish their was a way to watch your friends play live. Like Clash of clans or other games you can watch clan mates and friends attack live, which would be really cool on this game. Even if you could send just replays to the club chat so others can watch would be awesome. Second - tournaments could be worked as well. The ones we have work tremendously well but making more/new ones would be even cooler. Club tournaments could be a possibility in this. Sending a tournament to the club and allowing club mates to join and play for a small prize at the end would be so fun. Which leads me to my next point that tournaments should go up in size to see who has some real skill. Especially if you have a lot of people in a clan then it would help to have like a 16 person tournament or something of greater numbers than 8. This game is amazing and fun as always, I just like to try and invent new ideas to further it’s gameplay. 👍
Cheats you of time & money
by ImaUserNoMore on 2018/06/07 13:47
Although this game can be enjoyable when working properly, it often has what it labels as “connection slow” issues. If you tap on a profile during this event, you will see the message “updating.” When this happens and it finishes its update, you could potentially be losing time leaving you no time to aim and shoot causing you to lose your turn. This has often caused players to lose the game & money if you pay for any additional coins. It makes it appear that your connection is slow but in reality the games’ network is overburdened. This is happening more frequently than when I first started playing. There are other minor issues which aren’t worth mentioning. But the so called “slow connection” issue is the worst and why I keep rating it with 3 stars. UPDATE: After reading some other reviews, I agree that there are bots especially when chat comments like Never Give Up are used when it makes no sense. I agree with seems that most players are in countries other than my own and skill levels not matched. I agree that it cheats you out of money and algorithyms used seem to cause you to lose. There seems to be lack of support but increase in glitches. What I don’t get is why it’s still labeled as the Editor’s Choice. Therefore I’m downgrading the rating to 2 stars.
Fun
by Backspinforce on 2018/07/04 10:22
I have played this game for years. If you take your time and play the games based on coins within your means it is fun. Nobody likes to lose but is addictive. With 8 & 9 ball and then tournaments, play different ones when you have made bad shots and lost or want to extend your fun. I do get mad at times like everyone else but if you are playing low coin games you can have lots of fun and then can add your messages to create more stress so if it good luck or trash talk all goes both ways back and forth. You get free coins every day and can watch videos for more too. Like any other game when you get mad or bored give it a break for a couple days and come back to it. I have played this game for fun when traveling or at a doctors office waiting and connection is important but at home you can play friends and message each other in the game which makes it more fun. I switch among 8&9 ball and tournaments with different coin values and even though I do lose when I thought I wasn’t it still give new life when you lost and then you finally win again. Probably one of my overall favorite apps too so give it a try for a while if you like pool!
The game allows you to cheat
by z-? on 2020/01/14 01:19
Although the graphics on this game are very good. there are a couple of major problems with playing this game as an app as opposed to reality. Number one when you scratch the ball should be placed on the area where the ball was placed during the break. In reality you can place the ball anywhere from the bumper to the imaginary line where the ball was placed during the break and you can only line up a shot on the balls ahead of that line towards the far bumper. The app allows you to place the ball anywhere on the table that you like and because of that when people do that they are cheating they know it but the game doesn’t stop them Which is odd because throughout the game you can’t shoot your opponents ball but in reality you can shoot the opponents ball you just lose your shot if you make it. The bottom line is because the game allows you to place the cue ball anywhere you like on the table to make any shot after a scratch destroys the games credibility and since you can’t chat with your opponent you can’t tell them hey you can’t do that even though they know. before I play this game again you will have to fix that glitch it is very frustrating to know people are cheating and the game is allowing it and you can’t do anything about it that’s why you get a one star
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.
Game Breaking Bugs and Matchmaking
by stevewonders27 on 2019/03/02 07:36
I really love this game, but it’s hard to when you aren’t able to play. Every single game I get paired with someone from India or Brazil or somewhere where our connection isn’t stable. I can’t even count the hundreds of thousands of coins I’ve lost due to a crash caused by poor connection. It’s come to a point where it happens so commonly and in such important, high stakes games, where I am afraid to play the game. At least when your game fails to establish a somewhat ideal connection, don’t take away my coins that I’ve been forced to spend money on. I know for a fact that it is not my WiFi, so you cannot possibly blame it on that. I have noticed that every time I play someone from my country or even my continent that the games are faster and can actually run. But, this only seems to happen once every 20 games. The number of times I’ve been about to win a high stake game and then I lose because of “poor connection to server” has become substantially high. I am seriously afraid to play your game until I can be assured that I will be able to play a game safely without losing my coins which are tied to my actual money. Trust me, this review should really be a 5 star, but your game needs some serious fixing and some decent customer service if you want that.
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
Complicated
by HopeLovePeaceNotWar on 2020/08/16 13:18
So overall I like this game, but there are a few things that make me want to rip my hair out. First, every time you open the app you are shown an add for their own game. And if you accidentally press the ad than you get paid for like some coins or whatever. Second, my connection is pretty good so I’m assuming this is game, but my cue is always like either moving super fast or not moving at all. It’s weird and frustrating. Third, the spin wheel thing is rigged. For example, every time I spin it I get a hundred coins or something when there are options for like twenty thousand coins. I have been on this game for a while now and I always get the lowest amount of coins offered on it. Fourth, they sometimes pair me up with like level seventy people. I’m at level twenty so that’s a big jump. I would perfer if we played against people on our level or a few levels below or above us. This was it’s more fair and we get to play against people with our own skill level. But in total this game is ok and it’s fun and stuff just if the developers fixed those few problems than it would be perfect. Thanks! :)
Stop B*****n
by Straight BALLIN ! on 2020/09/02 09:15
I read some of these reviews.. MY GOD!! SHUT UP!! “My wife has a cue collection and I don’t” her side piece has a bigger BLEEP than you too. GET OVER IT!! More complaining below Then you have these real weirdos who dissect the tiniest stuff. Dude, this game is computer generated, yet it plays exactly the way real pool would play. It actually makes everyone of us better than we’d ever be in real life. There’s times when the ball just sits there and SPINS like a top spin the same as real pool. Do you how insane that is for all the calculations to go into this? Take what bezos makes in a yr, CUBE THAT MF to the 100th power and MAYBE that’s how many scenarios this game calculates. Do you want what’s WRONG with this game? It’s WAY too addictive. For recovering gambling addicts this game is a problem. It’s creators invested greatly into people who work for the big casino chains. I’m not just talking about the obvious signs of the rewards etc being casino based. To the people who are “truth seekers” “red pilled” they will understand what I’m talking about. To the zombies who roam this world they will only see my post as a rambling bunch of BS.
Almost complete
by Big D 4967 on 2018/04/24 10:44
The game is very good and fun to play. What it needs to make it complete, in my opinion, is that it needs to have the ability to enter your own comments during play. You can’t have all the things I would like to say so being able to add my own would be great. But the game is really enjoyable to play and it’s fun to play people from around the world and that checking the players profile we see what country they are from and what their win rate is and what rings they’ve won. Which I really like winning rings it’s just a shame that we really can’t wear them, that would be awesome! If you like playing a game for free this is your game. You can spend money to get better cues and to get more coins but you can get more cues by winning games and getting gift boxes that you open in time or spend your dollar bills that you’ve acquired. But you can play without spending any real cash. Well I haven’t had to spend any yet and I’ve won 4 rings and working on number 5. All this is great fun and you can also play your friends and send friends gifts.
Spend money and get soft banned
by KB Gamer1982 on 2020/01/30 09:25
I play this game often. I don’t normally spend money on in-app purchases. However, I really like this game and decided “why not?” From time to time I treat myself to some extra cash (or coins) on the app. I’ve played over 15,000 games, win percentage 42.8%, and not a lot of wins. I go through winning and losing spurts, but I play tables ranging from $100k to $2.5mil. I signed on to check my 8 hour box, only to realize that everything that I have purchased and won (fair and square) has been taken. I get a “Final Warning” pop up (mind you this is the first pop up I’ve ever seen). I’ve never used third party modifications, don’t have any extra accounts to transfer coins, nor have I offended anyone (I keep my chat off when I’m playing the game). This cannot be legal. I can see if I was doing anything on their “Final Warning” list, but I have actually worked to build up my account fairly. I will be closing my account, but I am looking to take further action before I do. You don’t pay for a product and allow the store to take it back at their leisure all in the name of something they make up. I work hard for my money in real life. If I purchase a product (service) in good faith, you will not be allowed to take it and expect me to bow out gracefully.
Game is OK
by whiteclawsnobras on 2019/08/11 15:06
For some unknown reason my first account got deleted out of the blue after having spent a decent amount of cash in the App Store for in game coins/cash/pool cues etc. Had no other choice but to make another account. The way they match you up with an opponent doesn’t make sense, you can be level 40 and get matched against someone who’s level 140 and has won over a billion coins, or you could be level 40 and play against someone who’s a level 5 it doesn’t make much sense. It also seems that after you stop using the App Store to buy coins and only use the free coins they give that they match you against harder opponents intentionally to make you blow through your coins quicker. Another thing I don’t like is you can buy an upgraded cue with in game coins and cash or pay via the App Store but you have to constantly “recharge” the cue for its abilities of better aim/power etc to work and it seems as though the “charge” only lasts maybe a few games before the cue that you paid for works the same as a regular cue they give for free. I guess with any free app it’s never truly free, but with something so simplistic as 8 Ball Pool you’d expect it to not be such a pain to play.

by darlindawne on 2019/04/22 10:33
I have been gaming long enough to know not to get my hopes up but when ur waiting for that bug fix that you know mustbe coming and then when it finally gets here youre elated only to find that the only bug they fixed was one that affects the hindi speaking players. Its extremely frustrating. I have put in a lot of time and effort trying to get 'good' at their game and find myself and efforts thwarted at every turn. I know not to take it personally but how long does one wait before being ableto actually play the real game and not some knock off version of it because the bug fix is missing. I know its not my device it is the game and im not the only player tohave the same problems where after the last upgrade we cannot even play one on one wo being thrown out and having to reconnect. If i did not have my own club perhaps it would have made some difference perhaps i would have left by now. I do hope they live up to their hype , a lot of ppl depend on it. Its a shame when they really could be the best! Help, ive been shanghaiied!!!!!
Best one out there
by TrobleMakerM on 2020/12/29 06:27
Killers of the game. It’s all about the money for the game developers I’m sure they want it to be fun for all of us but in the end it seems like your almost always matched with better players then you, people are very serious in the game or just win by antagonizing you by constant emoji’s you can mute them though, I’m a girl so Everyman is after a friendship just turn the option off, you tube will tell you how to break so you might actually have a chance against the experts on here. Do not play nine ball because there is nothing but people in there that do “the golden break” so u lose with in seconds I did not know this and it killed my win lose ratio. But if you’re playing above 10,000 a game you’re going against some serious competition so if you haven’t mastered the game don’t even attempt it... other than that have fun don’t take it seriously you’re definitely going to lose a lot. Also for this game I would suggest looking up how to control the Q ball for that added edge. In the game it is called spin. Good luck have fun.
Fun game BUT...
by ~Danny G~ on 2019/03/19 17:24
This is really a fun game with a good look BUT... I gave the game 3 stars because there is definitely something wrong here. The biggest issue is the connection. I have lost countless games because of “slow connection” issues. Well, it’s not on my end. There is obviously a problem with the server or something in the software and it’s incredibly frustrating. I have played games where I sank the 8 ball, and I should have won, then the screen refreshes and my opponent sinks the 8 ball for the win. Are you kidding me? I have been in the middle of the game, made and sank my shot, then all of a sudden my opponent is shooting? In tournaments it’s even worse. I have lost the majority of the tournaments I entered solely because of connection issues. Beyond frustrating! Bottom line, fun for the first hour then the game just go south as you start to level. There are enough people playing this game that I’m sure the developers are more than aware of the issues. I can’t think of any reason it hasn’t been resolved yet. That’s bad form in my opinion and I’m not the only one experiencing these issues. If they ever fix the connection problems I would give this app another try.
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.
Lose coins when winning!
by Southern60 on 2020/01/13 02:30
I have been playing for a couple of months now. Even though the game can be fun, it has some flaws and down right cheats. The first flaw I saw was moving of the cue ball by the game after play. More than one time I have left the cue ball against the rail at a pocket making for a really difficult shot for my opponent. Next thing I see is the game more the ball off the rail making the shot easier for my opponent. The next flaw is the level of the opponent it pairs you with. 9 out of 10 times I’m playing against someone with much more experience, rarely someone of the same or near level. Now to the cheating. Several times when I had cue ball in hand after my opponent pocketed it, I would have just set the ball down to line up a shot only to be told “time ran out.” The most it had been was 3 seconds but now my opponent had the ball again. The biggest cheat is the loss of coins when you win. That’s right. LOST COINS WHILE WINNING!! Just today at 2 different times I lost coins when I won games. The first time I won 2 games in a row and lost 500 coins. The second time I won the game and my total went down 3000 coins. Doesn’t sound like much but it does add up for those just starting out.
Definitely a fixed game...
by Danko Bangs on 2021/01/17 03:16
First off, you never know how the order of breaking is. You can win a bunch of matches and still not be the one to break for 4+ games. Sometimes it varies. You can recharge your cues and sometimes it doesn’t even make a difference in the shooting techniques that the cue offers. The quick fire in offline mode is definitely a good example..you can get to almost any tier and the white ball always seems to travel more than any other ball on the table, especially to the pockets 😅 the time always runs even when you are not shooting because the balls are rolling forever...it’s definitely never the same time given back to you when you are potting balls left and right. You can get a whole table cleared in a matter of seconds and still have 10 seconds before you run out of time and guess what?...the white ball happens to be sunk in a pocket 🥴🤦🏻‍♂️ it’s almost as if they want you to lose in any given game. You pretty much know if you will or not. Maybe it’s just the way the games are played, but definitely something I’d be weary of as I do on the daily. The moment you lose a first game, it’s all downhill from there. All because the opponent broke first as per usual.
Good game but some aspects are bad
by Troybal81 on 2020/09/11 03:15
I have been looking for a game that would get me to play for a long time to pass time. This game got me to play multiple games of pool against people around the world. It tells you the win rate that you have and how much coins you have accumulated over your career. There is a extremely large variation of pool sticks that all have different stats and you can even spin the ball. Plus there are a lot of mini games you can play like scratchers, lucky shot, and spin to win. They also have 9 ball and no guidelines. The one thing that is EXTREMELY Noticeable is the spin and win is very rigged. It says the most you can win is 1 m coins but I highly doubt that has ever happened. The most I have ever in my life gotten was 700 coins with my vip bonus. I have been playing for over a ye at hand had this game before then. I have probably spun that wheel 100 times and not gotten over 700 coins. Clearly some parts of the game are rigged but also I’m not paying 20 bucks on a game every day they come out with a new “deal” which is usually just one pool stick and coins and cash.
Pretty Good.
by KoochieSlayer69 on 2020/04/22 02:54
It’s nice to play but what I have noticed is that all I get from the wheel spin is either 100 or 250 coins which is kinda annoying especially if I spend money to get wheel spins and also the pool cue meter which I always accidentally hit and only inches the ball forward allowing the other person to win. Update: What I’ve noticed is that if I make the smallest mistake the other person is able to move the ball anywhere(which is dumb) and I am in the lead 1-5 and the person is able to hit all of the balls in even though earlier they were bottling the whole time hitting it as hard as they can and then turn on decide to turn on sicko mode and win even I should have but some of the rules don’t really make since like one time I hit the opponents striped ball to hit in mine and made it only to have the opponent to be able to move the ball anywhere and then eventually win Overall I think they should fix some rules and get rid of pool cue recharge and in get rid of the rule where if you make a tiny mistake the opponent is able to move the ball anywhere
Unfair advantages for lower levels!:(
by the taci eater on 2020/05/12 16:42
It’s unfair because lower levels can always win just because they are worse players. It doesn't make any sense that every time I play against players 9-16 level players I always lose and I’ve been play for over 5 months and I’m level 21 with yellow rank so I don’t get it please read whole review but it’s going to be looong. Putting me against people higher levels then me just so i lose: They put me against people higher levels then me in $5000 game and all in game just so I can lose it’s no fair for low levels like me it should be SBMM (Skill Based Match Making) which means I should go against people that is level 21 or 22 so I don’t know why when I do all in I’m going against a level 30-50 players like unfair right so I should stop playing but I don’t give up and there is a glitch when I practice in offline play it says play again for $25 when I do but it doesn’t work so I keep pressing it but then it says I don’t have enough money I check my money I have about $0 left when I hade $1000 sooooo, but other then that it’s a great game.
Good game but I don’t like the new update

If you like playing pool, you’ll like this game. It is fun to play and once you complete the tutorial you’ll find you got the hang of it pretty quickly. The game levels you up by “xp”(experience points) and the amount of tokens/coins you win. I’m not sure what the top level is but I have seen players whose lvls are 100+. My only complaint about the game is a recent update they made, you used to win 1 ring per 20ish games you won per “location” you played at (Ex: one of the 1v1 game “location” is “London pub”) but they just changed it to trophies which forces you to spend more tokens and play the higher cost games (Ex: you “bet” 100 tokens to win 200... etc.). I don’t like how it forces you to play higher up games as it makes me feel like it’s less about winning/having fun/skill up and more about spending more/or making in-game purchases. It would be nice to opt for a hybrid of both systems so that as long as you’re winning you can still skill up/lvl up rather than the focus being on spending. Still a super fun game and recommend.
Programmed to lose and buy

This would be a great game if not for the bait-and-switch UI (user interface) and gaming algorithm that skews probability against players. I’ve played 17K+ games over 3+ years, reached level 154 and potted 72k+ balls earning an aggregate of 1.39B coins. What I’ve observed over time is the more you win, the more skewed the game becomes against you so the chances or scratching increases over time. I’ve watched the cue ball change trajectory and speed up after slowing down. Another example is the ‘Spin and Win’ wheel. It has 15 slots each with a different prize so the chances of hitting any slot should be 1 out of 15 or 6.67%. However after thousands of spins, I’ve only hit the same 2 slots with the lowest awards so it’s clearly rigged. The game is designed with a click-baiting user interface (ui) intended to increase chances or accidental in-game purchases and entry into the highest stakes games resulting in loss of all coins so players ‘buy’ the coins back. Also beware of cheats who manipulate the game so when it’s your turn, they force you to wait until your time runs out. The intent of this game is to make money through online in-game purchases. Fight the urge to buy. Just play at smaller stakes tables to earn enough coins to advance to the next level.
Quit pairing me with people 4 times my level!

I’ve had this game for a little while now and I’ve been growing better and better at it. I wish I could say I have been having fun with the game but I’m not. After I spent $6.99 on an in app purchase I have been paired up with players who are 4 times my level or higher. It’s not fair or easy. Another thing I’ve noticed is the constant pop ups showing you what deals you can buy. They will randomly open up after you exit a game and it’s very easy to accidentally tap one. The game is essentially rigged to make you purchase more coins by putting you up against people who don’t miss a shot. If you don’t get the break then you might as well quit the game right there. The devs really need to add skill based matchmaking. That way a level 18 player can’t be paired with a level 157 player. In what world does that make sense? Anyways it’s a fun game to play if you need to kill time. I don’t recommend trying to gain coins too quickly though otherwise they will pair you with level 500 no life Indians.
