Needs official rules
by Tyler11/20/01 on 2017/09/21 08:17
When you pocket the 8ball on a break, you win. When you scratch with your last shot being the 8ball you lose. Yet this game doesn’t realize that. When you scratch in general you’re supposed to put your ball behind the line and shoot in front of it. This game doesn’t enforce that, have a mode where you can set custom house rules with friends and a tournament mode with friends. 5 stars if that happens
One of the best games in AppStore

Indonesia has the most hacks it seems. Them, and the scumbags from Saudi Arabia. It’s also odd to get “gift requests” from friends who don’t even play. This app is truly trash. It’s a pathetic money-grab, too! I will NEVER give these thugs any money. I suggest you don’t either.

WARNING: SCAM
by Mazan Fan on 2017/09/21 01:19
This game has multiple ways it will cheat you. In my case, when it’s my turn, very often the timer does not start at the full amount. It often starts the countdown sometimes almost half of the full time my cue should have. Also you’ll notice when you first start, your win percentage will be very high. Once you get to around 45%-55%, you’ll start losing easy games to newer players. This is not a true, fair game. It plays well and looks great which makes it more sinister.

I enjoy playing the game. BUT, if you don't make a purchase they "update" the game and then you play against a bot where you will never win. Glad I spent $0.00 on this game and you should too.

by Scamh8er on 2017/09/20 19:40
The biggest scam of all pool games. If you want to get frustrated with the crap this so the one for you. You do so good for so long then it's seemingly impossible to win. Hmmm, maybe if I made purchases it would be a normal FAIR game.

by Nuluk on 2017/09/20 18:43
This game seems to be favorable to players that purchase items for them because there have been times that I have been shooting and its is my shot, with plenty of time left, and all of a sudden my opponent is shooting. This has happened during a winning shot most often. I have emailed the games creator and many days later they responded that they will get back to me. Many more days passed and they email me that they no longer allow emails from players of the game. It should be against the law that they sell products for you to compete with someone and then allow the opposition to have control of the winning shot. Is an Attorney. General reading this. Someone look into this and verify the cheating please. Other than that the game is fun. Especially if you practice offline on your own.

by Rebel4794 on 2017/09/20 05:10
I enjoyed playing 8Pool until I was told I can't play anymore till I "Update" my game. Well I go to update it and it says it's already up to date and I don't need to update it. I have an IPhone 7... I have a newer phone. My phone is 1 year old so I don't see why it won't let me play it. Until that problem is resolved, I will no longer play the game.
No skill needed
by monstarmy808 on 2017/09/20 05:03
No skill needed algorithms set to make even a 5 year old win the win average is used against the player 60% or better expect to be matched with 30-50% win avg, players and loose , even those with no knowledge of natural deflection can win ball speeds are hacked English will do the opposite of what you want table speeds constantly changing what is that 💩with follow anytime cutting a ball the cue goes forward natural deflection is straight across the table I remember seeing that since I first played 4-5 years ago & it's still the same hilarious when 42% win avg, people do 4 rail poses on critical shots , FKN awesome algorithms

Not worth the down load
by Maf113 on 2017/09/20 03:35
In mid play will exit and give win to opponent. Buy coins and you will lose most every game so you have to buy more. The game cheats. There is no way that I can lose 27 games in a row. If I get down to the 8 ball and sink it the que ball will roll and roll even with a light tap and go in a pocket thus the other guy wins. It become way to obvious at times

Once u start to win too much something has to trigger in this game and u go on a VISCOUS LOSING STREAK... We're not talking 1 or 2 loses here we're talking about endless lost games because your a good player I am level 84 I've had 13 million coins at 1 point the only way I got there was to realize this losing streak and to bet extremely low when I was losing and go back to high bets once I realize the game wasn't being biased anymore. They let low level players make miraculous player shots just because they hit a ball super hard and sets them up perfectly for the following shots mind u this has been done on me numerous times with beginner cues and no spin whatsoever on the ball it's crazy. And my best advice is NEVER EVER purchase coins it seems as though u go into a pool of people that will actually spend money and you lose a lot more frequently than u would if u never made a purchase. Worst 1.99 I have ever spent. The game could be really fun even though it is no comparison to real pool functionality is great the algorithms that they have in place make this game very stressful and almost completely undesirable altogether! PASS ON THIS GAME! DONT WASTE YOUR TIME ITS JUST GOING TO PISS YOU OFF I PROMISE!

by Poolstudent on 2017/08/08 13:29
This is the one of the all time worst games I have ever played in my life! The luck to skill ratio has to be 1352 to 1. I know it's just a game app and it is not the real game but the amount of all I have to do it hit the balls hard and anything goes in is crazy. It would be fine if the app was letting it work both ways but it doesn't. There has been numerous times when my opponent could barely see their object ball and was able to get it in a pocket by only hitting it hard, no spin at all, and not even scratching or completely not getting it in a pocket and perfectly set up for the next shot. If anything it's a hype game because if anyone were to do that in a real game would be sadly disappointed in the misses they will be making and quit on the game of billiards because of an illusion this app creates. Anyone who actually plays billiards in REAL LIFE and are new to pool and want to learn I don't recommend this game for you. This will not teach you how to play but to depend on getting lucky even more then playing pool on uneven tables at Bars. There are plenty better options out there like "Cue Billiard Club: 8 Ball Pool & Snooker" and "8 Ball Pool-Billiards" to name a few. This app will rob you of enjoying and learning from a great sport like Billiards with lucky phantom shots that you will never perform in REAL LIFE, including pros can't even make those shots, and constant frustration.
Love, LOOVVVVEEE this game but....
by Guitar Girl Rocks on 2017/03/11 00:06
I've downloaded and played other various pool game apps (on both my iPhone 6+ and 7+), and REALLY enjoyed playing this one best. But there are a couple things that irks me a bit. 1) Although the app gives you a choice to have the cue strength bar off on the side or bottom of the screen, it still at times gets in the way. There have been quite a few time I've accidentally hit the strength bar and released the cue while attempting to set up my shot. 2) And this is my BIGGEST gripe - the time thingy. I HATE when it tells me that it's waiting for an response from my opponent. Plus it makes you wait a few moments for your opponent to 'respond' (whatever that means), after the game is finished. I can understand giving people X amount of time to take their turn, but does the game need to pause and wait for a response? 3) The game is loaded with bots and fake players. Although playing with an bot doesn't bug me to much but I do wish there was a way the app developers could make the chat option unavailable to them. During games with bots the chat bubble is forever popping up, getting in the way of playing the game. I also notice about 80% of the players in the tournaments are bots. And lastly 4) while I can understand needed to accumulate $$$ to buy better cues and all but why the "recharge fee"? Overall it's a pretty good app, like I said. I wish they're was a way I could set my own chat words.
It is exactly what it claims, a pool game. Very geometrically accurate as well as crisp & clean!
by Haaaawtpancakes on 2016/08/17 03:43
Not sure what all the bs reviews are, claiming that people are getting shots off after the timer ends, & that its a scam for money etc! That's all inaccurate, if it's showing you that people are shooting after their timer has ran down then connect to at least a half-decent internet connection & you won't have that problem. As far as it being a money scam; they may have some stuff in the games store that seems pricey for what it is, but that's how they collect for the hard work and dedication that was put into the game, how they afford a knowledgeable candidate for programming the app etc. You are NOT required to even give them any physical money to play however! Yes, it costs coins to make each game worth playing - so you have something to win besides experience. Yeah, the coins can be costly to purchase with physical money, however, the game pays out free coins all the time & you can acquire them for free in so many different ways, if I was ever to run out myself I know I would never purchase any coin with physical money. The trick is to never run out of coin, never go all in unless your already at the bottom of the barrel, & just try not to play matches that cost a ridiculous amount of coin. Just wanted to clarify, it's most definitely a clean & crisp, completely legitimate & in my opinion, the Top of the Line, 8-ball pool app!
Really excellent game
by Vdodili on 2016/02/27 05:20
I am not one to usually write reviews, but when I saw all the negative ones I had to put in my opinion too. This is by far the best pool game I have seen, for many reasons. Playing with people all over the world has me checking where each new flag I see is from (fun!). More importantly, though, the game mechanics are spot on and very like playing real pool, which I do at home, too. Yes, sometimes the connections are somewhat slow (which I've found more when playing people from Asia), but we're talking a matter of 15-20 second lag which to me is acceptable. I won 250,000 coins once on the wheel, so I know it isn't "rigged" (and I've not spent any real cash yet, either). The one negative comment I agree with is that, while playing one-on-one, it is very easy to accidentally touch one of the high-stakes tables. I did that once, the 50,000 coin table (which was almost all the coins I had), and was very upset but ended up winning that game, so I ended up way ahead -- but it could have easily been the other way around. If the developers could fix that one issue, I think the game could be even better. I'd also love to be able to really chat with the folks I am playing with, rather than canned responses, but I can understand the bandwidth problems that might cause. All in all, this game has been an EXCELLENT surprise and I would highly recommend it to anyone, both seasoned pool players and beginners at the game, as well.

by Nina M Eary on 2016/06/10 00:26
I am convinced now that this game is a scam... I used to love playing, but like the other players mentioned, it will boot you for no reason, or says it lost it & you lose the money & never get back to the game even though there's not ACTUALLY a 'lost connection'! I have NEVER won a big payout on the spin & win either, so that's rigged. As much as I play, the odds would be I would have gotten at least a few... Also, I agree with the guy that says there is no way these low ranking 'people' can have so many break & runs! I have played where 5 times in a row, they ran it & I never got a shot. Also, WINNER always breaks! That is how it is played, always has been! I 'like' how they change the rules as they go along... Now the latest scam is that if you play on the 200K game, your opponent has the ability to keep playing, even though they pocket the ball in the wrong pocket,, & are given ball in hand, you are unable to pick up the ball & move it, & they continue playing anyway, cheating their way thru the game! And today, all of a sudden the Toronto table looks the same as the crappy London table! The most disgusting thing about this game is the fact that you still haven't re-written the codes, so cheaters with cheat codes can't steal all of us LEGITIMATELY good players coins! Always on the Toronto, the Cairo Kasbah & Dubai tables! Wouldn't doubt if it were miniclip employees, ripping us off once again!
Play pool in real life competitively
by James Thurliss on 2015/12/15 18:03
I love this game! I play real pool in leagues and tournaments, so I am familiar with English, banking and cut shots. This game is much more accurate than I was expecting- there are a few discrepancies but it seems like you can purchase different cues to help with the features you're looking for- for example, I use a cue that has high ratings in English which I find helps. I usually dislike apps that are crafted after real life games because of how inaccurate they are and pool is one thing out of all that it is highly unlikely I would go for because it is my favorite thing to do in real life, but another avid player introduced me to it and many of my serious playing friends enjoy it as well. I feel that playing this has actually helped my game- to see more Carom shots and fine tune my (cue ball) leaves because it is pretty accurate. I find since I have been playing the game, (but also working more so have less time to play pool), I am growing as a played as far as directing the cue ball, as well as how I plan (planning the game three to four ball ahead)- every shot you think ahead to determine where you'll be shooting the next few balls and where you need to be on table to go in the right order. Anyway I give it five stars bc I absolutely love playing it all the time, it's helped me with my real life play, it's helped me learn new shots, and become more precise with my English
Waste
by Asdfhhbccm on 2016/06/16 19:58
Don't waste your money on this game!!! I use to love this game until I started spending my real cash on this fake game. For starters, the free spins are BS. I would time my 10 hour limit and the min I open the app, it would reset resulting in another 10 hour wait. I NEVER won big on the free spin. Whenever it got close to the big prizes and would spin back to the lower prize underneath. As for coins, there are times where I would buy because of the advertised double coin and cheated out of that money. Winning big pots with purchased coins is virtually impossible on my end. I would buy 340 or 80 thousand dollars worth of coin and that's when all the expert 8 ball players come out. I would lose countless games back to back never even getting one shot in bc the experts never miss. This only happens when I purchase coins btw. Last but not least, the CONNECTION PROBLEM. how do I have a connection problem with 5 lte Verizon bars???? Or when I'm sitting next to my highspeed internet box?? This connection bs is just another way for you to lose out on games and money. It so happens that I Always get my connection back right when my time is about to be up. Moral of the story, don't spend your real money on these money hungry thieves if you want to continue enjoying the game. P.s all of my problems started after my first real purchase
Great game - minor suggestions
by StringBassDave on 2016/10/07 20:54
My favorite iPhone mpg. The physics are wonderful and feel very realistic. The games last just the right amount of time and I can play anytime I want. Suggestions: game vibrates when opponent loses their turn and it is your turn - very convenient. There are other times when there are long delays in the game, usually related to the opponent's poor connection, where you don't get a vibration and have to keep watching nothing happen waiting for the cue to come silently back so you can keep playing. Sometimes you miss precious seconds or more. Also, when the opponent quits the game - sometimes when you have sent the 8-ball towards the winning pocket - and you have to wait an eternity to be declared winner (with the warning "don't close the game"). I can only hope that the inconsiderate opponent also has to wait at least as long to begin again. It would be nice if the game enforced a 30 second waiting period to punish that kind of behavior. Better yet, let the winner get to the next game much, much faster. Finally, the balls look very realistic, but it can often be hard to tell stripes from solids or even the cue ball on occasions. Especially on a small phone. It would be nice to have an option to make the differences between the balls more obvious.
Well I am officially done with this game
by Anthony Bek on 2017/02/13 01:44
So my experience with a ball in its early stages has been great but when I finally started playing a little bit more intensively I have noticed how rigged they can be. so far I have seen so many issues with the game that I haven't noticed when I was playing earlier but the thing is one of the biggest issues I see is the charge system for cues specially due to the fact that almost every game that I play I need to recharge it as well as cues and general something incredibly better than others sure it may take a long time to get your hands on them it creates an incredible disadvantage to the other side other issues is how doing the same thing which I put a pull through a computer program to see what I would do the exact same shots were taken and those balls they went separate variation from before and some even impossible in fact I believe that people in Miniclip really cater source people who spend more money on the game I don't blame them that's how they were money butI wish that they wouldn't solely be driven by that because it has made the game incredibly unfair and balanced as well as the leveling system because I have seen someone that is the same level as me and same amateur level as me play with God which seems to be a little bit alarming that I can compare apples leveling system and Ranking system to that of counter strike global offensive so not good
1 star for development, 3 stars for smooth controls
by SweetandSourInYourMouth on 2017/02/19 03:35
I don't know if the developers are dumb or just don't know the rules of 8 ball but this game is nonsense. Not only do almost all the shots defy the laws of physics but the rules are just plan made up. Not to mention the nonsensical connection problems that seem to just negate previous shots and ball placements. Literally, I've made 3 shots in a row, it's timed out do to "connection problem" and comes back online to none of my shots ever having taken place and I've ran out of time to shoot, LOL! It's infuriating, which I guess can say a little something about the playability, it can be fun. Just don't expect to actually play. Be ready to laugh at the ridiculous nonsense! Update: this game is complete garbage. The comical aspect has worn off and it is pure aggravating trash. Clearly it is a scam. The developers has devised a formula that allows you to win a few low stake games and then will prompt you to play higher stakes, in which your controls are all of a sudden insanely sensitive, making it impossible to line up a shot. And if you do somehow manage the game will AUTOMATICALLY apply spin to your cue which not only botches the shot but pots your cue ball. An obvious pathetic attempt at getting you to buy more chips. Miniclip is worthless to me. Game is deleted and I will never again download one of their apps. Worthless, greedy, nonsensical trash. Do not waste your time.
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
Love the game. Poor connection. Games cheats you at times though -__-
by DaKotaiPhone6+ on 2017/02/01 03:13
Been playing for a few wks. Love the game. Wasn't having any problems, until I recently. Funny how I was prompted to leave a review, got here and saw reviews on the SAME issues I'm having...(1) poor connection, (2) game cheats you out of chips/cash/wins by disconnecting in the middle of the game or sometimes when it "owes" you coins hourly or for watching a video, (3) once you make a purchase, it'll CONTINUALLY ask you to make purchase your little "pool-loving" heart cannot resist (but you should RESIST..don't be tricked lol), (4) the daily spins hardly ever "award" you more than 100 chips, (5) it's unfair how the game isn't "intelligent" enough to credit you back or BETTER YET not deduct your chips/cash if the game crashes/connection fails!!! -___- Yet, I'm ending this review to hop back on the table and take on my next "victim" hahaha. It's all fun and games. You have nothing much to lose (unless you're BUYING "stuff"..which I already told your hard-headed self not too silly lol). It's fun "earning" new cues though...I'll admit. And the RUSH of playing a tournament...words can't describe & if you win, you should be "terrified" take the CHANCE again (but you will, eventually, any way). GO 8-Ball! Leggo
A so, so game.
by Lone-Drifter on 2017/03/10 00:42
I am an avid pool player in real life and I don't this app to be perfect. But I would expect a lot more than what you get. Especially if you spend any of your hard earned money on it. You will not get what you think you're paying for. They give you a cue to start with. It has no attributes. You cannot get any 'action' on the cue ball whatsoever. So you play a bunch of games in an effort to win a better cue that you can get at least a little draw and English with. Or, you spend your money to buy their 'money' to buy a better cue. So now you think you own a better cue. But you don't. You're only renting it. After so many shots they charge you to keep using it. Additionally, the game has some serious flaws. Example: You pay 10,000 chips to play a game. You break and make a couple balls. So it's your shot again. But first a message comes up that says 'connection is slow, please wait.' So you sit there waiting for them to give you your cue so that you can shoot. You're viewing the table waiting with nothing happening when a message appears saying your opponent won! WHAT??? It was my shot! I was waiting as instructed. That had my cue so that I couldn't shoot. How could I lose? But you lose your chips with no recourse. My advise: Play for fun. But don't invest one dime in this app. It is a major ripoff.
Great execution and playability
by FormerPoolDude on 2017/03/16 20:39
This game is well done and the devs have made it a good multiplayer game. I have been able to get my kids interested in pool and learning the strategy of the 'leave' and how important it is. If you invest a little $ into the game you can get some pretty decent cues that all have different attributes. These can be challenging to switch to as they all have a different response to follow and english. Once you settle on a style you may need to relearn your edge which adds to the game. This is definitely the best pool game I have played across all platforms in many years. There are some frustrations in the algorithms for successful shots and adding complexity to shots that would be harder in real life (suggestion for the devs) e.g. A bridge from the middle of the table with a ball in front should be diminished in its successful trajectory. As I he to high levels the game is still fun but losing it's overall allure. In the end I have found myself seeking out, finding and playing real billiards more in my local. The strategy of the game sticks and my kids understand the bigger harder parts of the game while they work on basics. Highly recommended.
I wish I could give more stars! -Five x zero
by Rfleisch88 on 2015/10/12 13:41
This is the best app EVER!!!!! You can play against friends or random opponents from around the world. The creators (mini clip) outdone themselves with this one!!!!!You can request for coins to play again if you ran out of them by surprisingly sending out mass messages to all of your Facebook friends so keeping in contact with everyone you know just got easier. You might even receive a message or two from some of them stating, keep up the great work on requesting for more coins, you must be rich in that game!. Some of them may even eventually get to a point where they come to your house and destroy all forms of devices that gives you access to internet or the outside world. So don't worry about that your car is fine with insurance. You will come to the realization that all the money you might or have spent on this app, you could have spent it buying a pool table with friends and family members from the comfort of your home. You might reply back and say but how can I play against random opponents from around the world? Well... You can't.... unless you are a world championship 8 ball pool qualifier, who travels the world to play opponents. So if you're feeling peachy and have quite a bit of money to buy coins to give away I mean play with then geez you'll be fine. Enjoy!
Done.
by wwooley42 on 2017/01/04 18:10
I gave this game a chance. Plenty of chances actually. It was fun at first. But upon reading plenty of other reviews, I agree with the fact that this game caters to those who buy coins. And the connection is terrible. For the last 2 days, my connection has gone out while I was in the middle of the daily spin. The game just skipped the spin game and took me to the main screen. 2 days of missed free coins (which you never get many of anyways). The touch on the hit that you have on the ball is insanely unrealistic and inconsistent. I barely hit the ball and it keeps rolling halfway across the table, taking away any clear shots I might have had. Or I line up a shot and it shows perfect, then hits the cushion and I miss. It's annoying. And I've been losing coins like crazy. I'll never spend too much in the App Store, so I never buy more than $5 worth of coins every now and then. And boom. It's gone in a few games. You should never have to face someone whose higher than 5 levels than you either. That's not fair. Plenty of people playing this game, not that hard to find someone around your level. I'm level 45. I shouldn't have to face 52 (someone more skilled/experienced). I'm done with this game. The most disappointing thing is I've built up for awhile. And the game doesn't cater to the loyal fans who come back every day. It was fun at first. But disappointing later on.
Super fun but it seems like the game sets you up to fail.
by Zombieman74 on 2017/05/07 23:51
It seems as if every time I start to get some coins saved up I start getting matched against players that I have no chance against and it's not just one or two in a row it's until I have almost no coins left. I've been playing this game for a while now and I thought it might just be coincidence or me just getting frustrated. No this has happened to me way to many times. Also on the spin wheel I used a free daily spin and I have never gotten more than 2500 coins on it. I've seen the wheel come to a slow moving speed and stay constant passing all the high payouts until I land on 100 coins. I'm not the only one experiencing this because I've talked to people who also play this game and they have felt the same way. I know this is a free app and they need to make there money some how. I'm not one of those people that has so much money to blow on a game like this it just doesn't seem worth the money to spend 50 dollars of real money on game Cash so I can have a chance against the unbeatable people I get matched against. Just would like the game to be a little more fair. If this gets changed I would have no problem giving 5 stars.
Good game. Bad connection.
by Gabe0013 on 2017/01/01 23:27
The action is really good. The game can be addictive. However, there is a MAJOR FLAW. The game often loses its connection. When this happens, you can lose your turn. You can lose your turn & find that the last shot you made didn't count. You can return to the game w/out enough time to shoot. You can return to find you have to reshoot the last shot. Best case, you return to the game w/ a bit less time to shoot. This has to be the top priority of the next update. If they can't fix the connection issue, they should at least make it so that you are returned to the game w/ a new clock. This is extremely frustrating. 😠 l was hoping to write a new review, but I guess that isn't an option. The protocol for when the connection is slow seems to have gotten worse, not better. The connection drops less often, which is good. However, what happens after is worse. I made a shot, was in the process of calling another shot, when the connection dropped. When the game resumed, my shot had been negated & I only had a few seconds to reshoot. This cost me the final game of the tournament. To make matters worse, there isn't even a way to contact the makers through the app. So I have lowered my rating to 2 stars. I would still give it 2.5, but that isn't an option either. 😖
This games rigged
by Rozaysplasher on 2017/03/25 18:58
It's a fun game when playing with your friends but the game absolutely refuses to let you prosper by not purchasing anything. I've lost game after game on unrealistic shots I've lost tournaments where I've had an opponent not even take a shot then magically on the 8 ball I scratch and I'm out . Some games I've sunk a ball in a pocket and it takes me to the home screen like I lost . ON MY TURN !! (And no I didn't accidentally sink the 8 ball) The daily spins are rigged, I can accurately guess what I will receive just by the spin on the wheel , it's never more than 500 coins. Only time I've won something (rare box)was when I first downloaded the game a year ago!! Scratchers are rigged , I won 5 and all 5 weren't winners. The games are all loaded so if you have a decent amount of money and play a high stakes game you are instantly playing a level 60 or 90 even though I'm only level 18. Basically if you pay for everything you'll be successful at this game . Otherwise it's just an okay game. Seriously need to fix all that. Gave the game another chance after they updated it , same ol bs. They never let you win anything beside 150 or 250 coins in the daily spin, amount of coins in the hourly coins is stupid. 30 coins an hour is ridiculous . Fix this game asap
5 Star game with some changes.
by DaGrimmReaper85 on 2015/10/16 04:36
All around a great game that I have been playing for 4 years on and off now other than the fact of the timer glitch. The game freezes up at times causing your timer to run down before you get to make your shot, or reloads the app on the other hand making you lose your shot altogether, or the entire game session you've started. One other thing is the chat options, for Pete's sake give us an open chat where we can converse with our fellow pool sharks and friends. You can even put a filter on it to monitor the language but please give the game an open chat. I'm sure you would keep and gain so many more players. I like the weekly competition, but seriously 750 coins for first prize amongst friends? Up the ante to like 5,000 coins OR $1 pool cash would be great. Yes just $1 otherwise players would build up cash to quickly. Also, Why so many coins to re-charge a cue? I bought the Zombie Cue for 100,000 coins and it takes 20,000 coins to charge it. Most of the time it is a struggle to even get 20,000 coins banked up, and just to throw it away charging a cue for a little extra power and spin? Thanks but no thanks. Would really love to see these changes take place in some future updates. P.S. Add a 9 ball game as well on your main menu.
Biggest Scam out there
by wdwmkr on 2017/05/13 03:07
I'm amending an old review because the longer I had this game the more furious I got at their constant scams and refusal to stand behind their product. Thanks me of the few times I was stupid enough to put money into this they charged me twice and what was advertised was NOT what I got. I sent emails and posted on their Facebook page and sent messages and the only reply I ever got was an automatic one ASKING ME TO STOP EMAILING THEM!. I went through my bank and they investigated and refunded my money. Six months later I received another email saying sorry but you bought it so tough luck. I never heard back on FB messages. I know the world is full of awful people just waiting for suckers but I'm tired of supporting them. Too bad because the game was kinda fun. Just not worth dealing with greedy dishonest small people. My earlier review is below. Unfortunately there are no good 8 ball games. This one has a few bugs that are annoying. One is that when you play with friends your wins are not counted. Also to play one on one is totally random so you could play beginners or pros who run the table. Some of the rules are different. Scratching on the 8 only loses the game if the 8 goes in. And people can reposition the cue ball apparently at will. There are other issues but it is the best I've found.
Best ripoff in the App Store!
by moondog_42 on 2015/12/16 07:24
I've been playing this app since it came out. Back when the only things you could pay for were power ups and more coins/cash. In all that time the only time I ever got more than 1000 coins on the spin was when I got 10,000 the day they introduced the chat packs. Guess how much the chat packs cost to start? Ever since then this app just wants to take your money. Cues used to be pay once and done, now they "recharge" -- of course for coins which you need to buy to keep your big new cue "charged". The new vip feature is the same way. If you level up without paying you will max out before reaching the 3rd tier -- level 150 will put you three levels too short to reach 3rd tier vip status (out of 6). And this is not to mention the non-existent "support" whose first question is something to the effect of "Did you pay? No? Sorry we can't help you at all." And the game is horribly rigged against you anyway, so even if "support" could give you the coins back from their own app screwing up, they'll just take it away from you later when you go on a weird losing streak where nothing goes in the way it's supposed to, or you scratch on shots which should have zero chance of scratching, usually in the side pocket. There are far better and more interesting apps to waste your money on, please don't give any more to mini clip because they only about taking all your money away from you rather than putting out a quality product.
Good app
by ADRiAN_M on 2016/11/26 15:59
Good competitive app to have, fun game. Has some problems when connection is lost like people still getting a shot off when time runs out, or connection is slow causes you to lose your turn. My biggest problem is the scratch offs and the spin wheel. You almost NEVER win anything good. It's always a couple hundred coins. I've had the app for a little over a year and think I hit ONE good jackpot on the spin wheel. As for the scratch off, one time I had like 10 of them I hadn't used, so I decided one day to use them to get some coins, on 7 of the cards it said better luck next time. Those are scratch offs I've earned, and they still didn't reward me with any coins. There is always promos for us to buy coins with my Apple Pay but they never take care of you with a couple thousand coins from time to time. Last thing is when I buy the legendary boxes with the virtual currency I've earned, on the different occasions I unlocked a pool stick I already had. That's just a waste of a box. That's why I use my virtual money to buy those boxes to unlock a new que, not to get one I already have. Pointless to be honest. Fix that and you got a 5 in my book
I love this game but
by LizhaThomas on 2017/02/05 20:00
I love playing 8 ball pool but I have a problem with the daily spin and the earning of bucks the daily spin only gives you the smallest amount of coins as possible and it's really annoying but only once did I ever get 2500 which was cool but that was it and it's very hard to receive gift boxes or scratchers and the only time you can access a box is if you spend your bucks which brings me to my next problem could you make earning bucks easier instead of only receiving 1 every time you level up and if you want more you either have to spend real money or you do offers that make you spend real money too but even the offers that just have you watch videos or do quizzes they only give you 1 and that's not enough and it's not fair that all my friends have or people I go against have all the nice cues you get from the boxes or have more bucks than me and I hate it. I love playing 8 ball but it's hard for me to play everyday all the time so make it easier to earn bucks and make the daily spin more easier to get boxes why put them in there if your going to make it hard to get I would give it 5/5 stars but fix this and I will but right now it's 3
Can't retrieve my accidental bet
by Elnaknowsall on 2015/02/11 14:58
Love this game and by far the best app on the market. Would have given you 5 stars except for the fact that if you accidentally press a wrong betting category, you can't go back and have to play that amount game. For example, I had over 300,000 in my winnings and went to play a 500 dollar game and when I went to scroll to that game, I accidentally pressed the 200,000 category and couldn't correct that so had to play someone with well over a 150 rating. I'm only at a 43 rating so of course I lost the game by a large margin and 200,000 game points. This really made me mad as I worked hard to get these points. In fact this has happened several times. Why can't you fix it so you automatically go back to the same amount game you had previously played instead of having to scroll back to the game. Then if you want to change the bet, you have the option to do so. Plus the way you have it set up, you are automatically brought back to the main screen which starts in the middle of the categories and these are at the higher priced games. And then you have to scroll back for the lower priced games and this is when you can accidentally press the wrong button. Maybe you do this on purpose so people lose their winnings fast and then have to purchase more "coins". Please try to fix this because if not, your ratings will go down. Thanks. Ellie C.
Today my opinion of 8 ball pool is less then yesterday.
by donald-t on 2016/12/21 13:12
Today my opinion of 8 ball pool is less then yesterday, because this latest version has added a useless feature that exists only to get games dollars for all users. Why on earth do we need avatars pictures supplied by the game when they're so plentiful on the Internet? I was examining the new feature when I touched one of the avatars being offered and was quickly build 60 games dollars the equivalent of US$10 for an avatar I didn't even choose! With no prompt for do you want to buy this please supply your password nothing just $60 gone from my account this needs to be fixed and if Miniclip has any morals they will refund the 60 dollars to my account so I will feel better and I'll be able to up my opinion of Miniclip again. MY RATING NOW AMENDED... Well after about 6 weeks Miniclip has finally refunded the 60 games dollars I haven't even checked if they removed the avatar I was blessed with, anyway because they have made things right I've decided to restore my rating to four stars because after all this is a wonderful game that allow competition with people around the world!
Used to enjoy this game ...
by akGreg on 2017/01/16 17:45
I used to enjoy this game, and yes I have some of the same complaints as I've seen others write: connection issues, pushed to buy chips, free spins get you nothing as you never land on anything but $50-$200 spaces, and finally the fact that you end up playing people 20x your skill level (I'm currently level 35 and frequently play people level 50+, even so much as level 100+ on a little rarer occasion). That all said, I still played. But recently, the game has started quitting matches or telling me I've run out of time after it's sat there 'waiting for my opponent to respond' ... the former of which burns up chips and frankly, I have no intention of buying more just because the app is buggy or worse yet designed to pilfer my paid-for chips from me in an effort to get me to buy more. You've taken a player that didn't mind spending $5-10 a week to play something he enjoys and reduced him to someone who will likely be deleting this app as soon as his chips are gone. Don't get me wrong, I like the app, but don't waste your money buying chips to play it. Play as a guest, you won't gain standing, but you'll be able to play without getting rolled like a street corner hustle.
Great Game, PLAYERS RUIN IT
by JeN...1122 on 2017/03/27 22:58
I have enjoyed playing this game for years. However, for the past year, I'll go months without opening the app. I'm not great at the game, but I always play to the best of my ability...it seems like every person I play intentionally screws your over. Example: both of us down to one ball, opponents shot. They don't have a clear shot so they intentionally shoot to tap the ball to the rail, in return blocking me. I get the whole blocking part, during the game...but not to nudge their ball to the rail to block you on your last shot. I am then left with 2 choices, attempt to do the same back, or try to make my shot anyway...when you're calling pockets, you don't really have a lot of options. If I do the same in return, the game will never end! What's the point!? I thought we were there to play?? So I end up trying to make my shot, of course I don't because I was stuck, wrong pocket or ball never made contact, etc....boom opponent has ball in hand. Game over for me. The point I'm trying to make is, the opponent puts me in the situation to give them ball in hand. It's either play their stupid who can block who game or give them the d*mn ball. It's ridiculous. There should be a way games are monitored or a way to block/report players like that. Go to play the game, not be an a**.
UN FAIR
by FunnyPrincess555 on 2017/01/20 06:52
This game was ok at first. It was fun and enjoyable. But it glitches a lot!!! I had 100,000+ coins. All I wanted to do was play a small game. When I was scrolling through them I accidentally hit a huge game. I quickly got out of it. It then brought me back to the home screen where I thought everything was ok. Then It sent me right to the game for a total of 200k. I was so mad because they purposely try and make you touch these high bet places and if you accidentally do then they set you up to fail. I mean honestly a level 29 person should be matched up with someone who is level 80 or 90 like that's really screwed up!!! This game glitches a lot to like if there is a back button and you press it why does it automatically send you into that game. Just don't get addicted to this game unless you would be buying coins and cash 24/7. Another thing that bothers me are the scratchers and spinning the wheel. The most of got on scratchers was a lot but that was like once out of five hundred. Also I'm the daily spin you have a chance to get up to 100k coins or a special box but for the past few years the most I've gotten was 1k now that's supper messed up. I don't think I would recommend this game for a lot of people. Though it's fun it's not worth it.
Don't play if you want fair play
by Trippx13 on 2017/05/05 02:47
This has a worse match making then blizzard with overwatch. You always play someone who is a higher level then you. Not just a few levels higher. But it can span up to 12 (was 12 now it has reached a 14 level difference)levels that I have been matched against. So if your just starting out. You can play someone with more experience at how to play. Next is the waiting for other gamers response... why am I waiting for him? Did he have to give a verbal cue to the app to say yes I want to keep playing? There is a timer for a reason. Lastly is that if you do start out small and have extra money to throw at this app. You will have the advantage every time against someone like me. Who doesn't want to pay to play. If I can give any advice to the app developers. Fix match making to a certain perimeter of levels. Like if I am level 9 I can only go against 5-14. Not flucking 21. And also maybe put a option to play with or without paid cues. So it can have a chance at a level playing field. Also you need to update to keep hackers out. I witnessed some off the wall shots. Not just one. But a whole match of them. Like I got no shots. And they ricocheted all there shots to a perfect hole. No matter where they were positioned.
Rigging at its finest.
by Fox‌ on 2017/01/12 18:35
I first got this game about 2 years ago. I thought it was fun to play and nothing was wrong with it (I was young and didn't really care.) I deleted it after getting to around level 13 or so and downloaded the game about a year later. I started playing it for a while and got to level 18. Then after Black Friday I got a deal where it said "Black Friday sale!" With a nice cue and some coins and a profile picture, and since it was only 2$ I thought I'd buy it, but boy was that a mistake. The game became rigged for me to lose constantly where I was winning a few, then losing a lot, the winning, then losing. I didn't know why this was happening since buying things in a game usually benefits you, but I just kept playing. Then another offer comes up and it's a "New Years Ultra Sale!" and again, it was a good deal for 10$ so I stupidly bought it. Then the game became more rigged. Whenever I played anything above Tokyo warrior I never won. I played 3 games of Las Vegas and lost them all. It's rigged so you lose money and buy more which is so stupid. DO NOT EVER buy something for this game because all you'll do is end up buying more like they rigged the game to do. I'm done with playing this game. It's fun, but it being rigged ruins it. There mini clip, you got your review. You happy? Now shut up about it.
Needs Major Improvement
by Ezyrider123 on 2017/06/09 02:03
I gave this app 2 stars because it needs to be improved. I understand that their goal is for the player to lose & have to purchase coins, cues, avatars, etc. but this app crashes about 30% of the time even if you have excellent WiFi connections. You can also buy chips or win them but you don't them added to your account. I have won over 200K (several times) in points, playing my opponent but not have them credited to my account. Another issue is that when its your turn to break, you can't put the cue exactly where you want to. The ball gets locked into certain areas on the table & thats the only place you can take your shot from. Sometimes when it's your turn, the cue strength (on the side of the table) does not appear leaving you with no way to hit the rack. This could be a fun app but it needs a better software engineer to fix all its problems. Don't get sucked into playing this game when all this happens. Stop playing, save your money.& download another pool app. P.S.- I've already emailed Miniclip 8 Ball about these problems but they have not fixed any of these issues.
🎱🎱 BEST GAME I'VE PLAYED 🎱🎱
by NinZan0415 on 2015/12/24 00:52
I love playing pool in real life, but was very skeptical of how a game would be accurately challenging. In my opinion, aside from actually playing, this game is the next best thing. Thank you for making it possible to have a blast for hours, w/o needing $ to advance much. I love how it randomly pairs u up with people around ur skill level, and from all over the world. Extremely realistic as far as the geometric accuracy. Takes a min to get used to lining up your shot, as it's very sensitive, but that makes it realistic. I like there's a timer for each shot, and it's cool u can in real time pick from pre made messages like "good shot" "so close" and "Another game?" It makes it feel more personal. My only suggestion would be to have more phrases you can choose from that are still free. Or to be able to write your own. Anyhow, totally addictive, and it can actually really help u improve your game in real life by practicing & learning how to line up shots, bank them, as well as the force needed to hit the cue. Realistic $ user friendly. Trust me, if you like playing pool, you'll love this game. Just give it a few rounds of getting used to it, when u do...You won't want to stop!! Thank u for the awesome game! 🤘🏻😎🎱
Amazing Game !
by LukeEuro on 2017/07/21 11:34
been playing this game for years now on and off. no matter what other game i play i always return to playing 8 ball pool. it's extremely fun and competitive. i've made a few good friends off of it too. this particular game has never had bugs or lags for me and it's consistently updated to keep the gaming experience flawless. aside from the constant new modes and tournaments they have there's always something you can get or achieve and that keeps it a really interesting game nonetheless that's it's something as simple as pool. you can play your friends that you have on facebook and in those games you can freely type your chats. i wish you could do the same through regular multiplayer mode if they weren't already facebook/added friends but regardless i would highly recommend this pool game over any other. i've tried many other pool games and they don't quite have the same feel as this one. give it a shot and i promise you won't be disappointed!!!
Used to be a fun game
by Nneyaa on 2017/08/21 14:48
I used to be addicted to this game. Spending real money on coins for cool cues and everything. First. There's no personalization just playing endless games which cost tons of coins! Just to loose ALL THE TIME. The luck to skill ratio is WAYYY OFF. Why have levels if they aren't going to reflect the actual talent of the person playing. You have pool sharks who are "level 2" making you think you have a fighting chance. then you loose the entire game. Or you have beginners who are level "100" come & miss every shot & you win. I don't understand. Go back to the old game. It made more sense & was fun to play. Third why must EVERY game cost coins just to play? Sometimes you end up paying just to loose. Sounds just like a stupid casino scheme to me. Also like I mentioned if the level is "supposed" to reflect you're "talent" why am I level 30 being paired with level 2 or level 60 players? Half the time level 60 players have better cues & when just based on the fact they have a greater aim! Not because they can actually play pool.

I love this game. When I'm in a game playing mood this is the one I go to 70% of that time. The only issue for me is if you play nine ball and your experience level is low in nine ball you can be matched up with a player with the experience of a rating of over 100 or more when your experience rating is nine or less. That means that the best players are free to pray up on and take the lower players chips very easily some people will quit the game before it starts. But as usual there are people out there that don't care about anything but getting more for themselves so I wish the developers would address this situation because it is very aggravating to be so dominated and have your chips taken away from you like you're a baby with candy. Other than that I have no complaints about this game at all and I do love it and I won't let the greedy one push me away. However when you do beat one of these hot shots what a great feeling to know that that they just got beat by at nine so catch 22.
Not Happy
by xxxnothappy123 on 2017/03/21 05:50
I have a few complaints. First, the spin to win is rigged, but I think everyone knew that. Second, you can tell that most of the "global people" you are facing are computers. Notice how the "random" opponent is ready right away? I understand that there is a lot of people on the app, but still. Next, I have ended up missing perfectly aligned shots, and my opponent is making horribly aligned shots. Third, every time I shoot the 8ball in, the cue ball goes in, even if it's not aligned which ends up me losing and then I get mad. Then, if you're going to play a game, stay on the game, I'm really tired of seeing the "waiting on your opponents response..." every time I make a shot, and I'm sitting there for 5 minutes waiting for them to come back. And finally, I played the all in and my opponent and I were 1-1, so we got to the final round, and I never got to play. It sat at the "match will start" screen for 10-15 minutes, I ended up just giving up on waiting because I knew that it probably wouldn't go through. I'm not buying anything from them (after reading all the reviews), and I'm considering deleting the app. Update: I just checked mine and I ended up winning the match that I never played?
Make 8 ball pool not only the best pool game but one of the best games
by Charlieee1986 on 2017/06/08 02:22
8 ball pool is fun but it would be much better if you could chat with opponents and or friends the same how ever you wanted too honestly say whatever you wanted too say whenever you wanted to say it. I love the fact that there is numerous different tournaments with different tables and different bets placed. What would also make 8 ball pool better is if the connection wasn't so bad at times. I have lost tons of money and my rank has suffered because of poor connection on 8 ball pools part when I have a great signal, great wifi connection, on my brand new iPhone 7 with beautiful weather and hot outside and not a drop of rain. This next topic is big when you are deciding on your next shot and as times runs out it just as you it your desired ball it resets and gives the shot to your opponent and negates your shot when you hit your desired ball just as time runs out. Please fix all these issues and 8 ball pool will attract more people and make 8 ball pool more money in return win win for everybody
3.5/5
by Fdsaghjkkl on 2016/11/21 03:04
This app was recommended to me by one of my close friends. He urged me to play it, ensuring that I'd have tons of fun through extensive gameplay, and he was right. The game is smooth, and it makes me feel as if I can play pool in real life (I can't). What my friend failed to mention to me in his description of the game however, is how mind bogglingly frustrating it can be at times. There are a lot of "cheap" pockets and glitches in the game. Also, there isn't much matchmaking. You can quite easily be paired with someone who has won substantially more games and has better cues. It makes matches with these type of people very difficult and punishingly enough, if you manage to win against them, your reward will be the same as if you won against any other opponent. Also there is a freemium feel associated with the game. All of the good cues have to be bought with in game cash, which can be bought with real money. That is the quickest way to become good in the game, and it feels cheap to players who want to become good the old fashion way. Through all the flaws however, I can't deny the fact that I am have a great deal of fun playing the game. I would highly recommend checking it out.
Satisfying but aggravating
by Iaretheone on 2017/06/14 00:43
I play using an iPhone and sometimes when I go to power up a shot , it moves the cue making me miss easy shots and losing the game... Also the cue will change position slightly after I release it to make shot... Overall very realistic game and highly additive ... Wish there was a feature that would keep people with more than 3 higher levels from playing at tables you were at .. It is hard to beat a level 92 player when you are only a 38 level .. Good game... I recommend it if you love to play pool! One thing lacking that is sorely needed is a button and dialog box that asks if you truly want to play in that room ! I accidentally hit a room that I was not skilled enough to play in and lost a match that cost me 1/2 million hard earned coins !!! Needs some way to verify you really want to play in a room !!! Lost 2.5 millions in accidentally hitting a room .... bad part was , I never even got 1 shot ! Guy broke and run the table !!!
Really?!?!?
by Ladybuglm on 2015/09/12 01:19
Your app keeps asking for a review? So here is your review... When I first got the app it was pretty cool. As other reviewer's had said you first start playing and you win a lot of games . BUT the more you rank up you start to lose more and MORE! But you know what I find funny also.. is that the more you spend with your own money the more you seem to lose. Funny huh??? NOT! It's not like I'm a bad player because I've had many winning streaks . And if I played one-on-one for little while it was pretty much a 2 to 3 game win my gain . But as of late I've been losing at least 6 to 7 games in a row. And I'm losing on games that would be an easy win!!! The easiest shots you can get in but all of a sudden your off by a millimeter, or you get " slow connection" when your wifi is working just fine you get booted off and when you come back on you loose the shot and the game to a level 28 and I'm a 53!!! Another thing you should be able to text your opponents. Have real talk. Not having to buy these quotes that are just ridiculous. This game is good . But just to pass the time. DONT SPEND YOUR OWN MONEY!! because once you start that, they start to force you to spend more by having the computer rig your games . Once my money is all gone BECAUSE it will disappear, I will be deleting the app. Not getting any more of my money . Not with all the cheats going on.

by Steven_keuker on 2017/09/16 00:07
Love the game but just letting you developers know to please issue a update to patch this bug or glitch that I and others have been experiencing so lately I have been trying to play your fun game but within 5-10 seconds of being in the app it has been booting me out but the app doesn't disappear or crash it's still active in the background and I try to get back in it again and it does the same thing over and over again and I can't play at all or even be in the app for more then seconds without this issue reoccurring my friend also has an I phone 6+ mine is a 7+ and he is experiencing the same issues I wanted to make sure that it wasn't my phone malfunctioning or overheating but this is the only app he or I have been having issues with please help thank you keep up the good work 👍👍👍 p.s. I have tried restarting my iPhone and even deleting then re downloading the app but no changes so far
Addicting And Frustrating
by ICanWinBig.com on 2016/11/16 10:21
I spend too much time playing. It is frustrating because it seems that too many times that there are glitches that render you a loss. Like when you hit one ball, pot that ball, and it gives your turn to your opponent saying you need to hit a striped ball. Glitches like these and other seem to fade away for a bit as long as you are making purchases to play. Why is it addicting? If you really love playing pool it is as close to the real thing as possible. However balls never leave the table other than through the pockets. The algorithms used in the game almost are undeniably similar to ones used in slot machines. If you haven't made a purchase in a while almost every game you play will be against not only higher ranked players but also to players that have an extremely high win percentage compared to yours yet at times you do seem to be unstoppable and other times it seems the only ball that goes in the pocket is the cue ball. I play on because I'm addicted. Don't start playing unless you like addictions in your life. I keep saying to myself to delete this game forever. Maybe I will sometime but not today. 😎🤔☠️
Unhappy old pop league player
by Squaw1 on 2017/02/01 09:35
This game is BS rigged and all-around just wrong your alignment lines ought to be better when you line your shot up and you know it's dead on you take your shot and it bounces off the side where you scratch on the eight ball knowing that your shot was not a hard shot there are so many times that I have played this game on different levels that I should have one pretty much most of the games I'm not saying I'm perfect but this game is BS there is no time limit when you're playing billiards or poolso that for one ought to be cut out your cut shots your lineup lines are to be more than a minute spec on the ball so somebody can see their line of travel the ball is taking even with glasses on you can't hardly even see it on a cut shot. This game has sooo many problems and issues compared to the actual game of pool/billiards it's so not funny. I will not purchase the full version. I'm just glad they give you a free version to play so you can see how just Adderly ridiculous their game is they cheat and you're right if you don't buy coins or anything from their shop they're just gone give somebody else the game let them win and yes you should be matched up with a player of your caliber not a happy camper and you get zero stars
Great!! But why no 9-ball?
by Alan Posssumballs on 2015/12/15 05:48
Title of this review withstanding, this is really the best pool game app available. I took the time to play almost every other one there is. Where the others fall far short is the physics of ball movement and the way the balls react when contacting other balls (english, backspin, topspin, angle:direction, etc.). For example, once, a cue ball hit the object ball. The object ball sunk into the intended hole, but the cue ball, after hitting the object ball very softly, with backspin, and about 3 finger lengths away from the pocket moved at almost the same speed and in the same direction as the object ball, following it into the hole, scratching. I literally heard Isaac Newton spinning in his grave. This NEVER happens with 8-ball pool. If a ball goes in to a pocket not intended, I know exactly what I did wrong. It is never the fault of the app. Besides that, they are relatively generous with game resources. As long as you don't play like a moron, you will probably never have to spend a dime of your own money. So this all being said, the one thing stopping this from being my favorite all time game app is the absence of 9-ball from its pool formats. Yet I can't get myself to remove a star in spite of that. Great game!!!
Please do something about it
by Jakz360 on 2016/10/17 22:51
so this game i think is awesome but theres a few things that i would suggest to the creators of the game that would make it much better. So a while ago you would be able to buy a cue with your coins which was good and thats that but now you have to pay to recharge your cue so now i cant recharge my awesome cue that i got because its too much coins and i try to gain alot of coins in the game but its just hard. the next thing is the coins say your going into moscow winter club to play the prize isnt $1000 the prize is $500 from that other person if you win because they take the money out from you when you play the game so basically your only making $500 which never made sense to me. and another thing is the aim isnt fair at all because me or my opponent can break and then pot every single ball in and then pot the 8 ball in and win the game without the other player even getting a chance to play they basically just watched their coins go down the drain thats why im not a high roller. so this made me delete the game many times because i get way too mad at it i think the game would be a million times better if they made this game fair and better with buying cues and until they fix that (which they probably wont) then ill give it five stars.
DO NOT PUT MONEY INTO THIS GAME
by iiDane on 2016/07/09 02:03
Okay let me start off with the mini games are rigged. You are (from my experience) 100% guaranteed to get under 2500 (even though 2500 is rare) In the free big spin they give you. Never have I ever heard any story of anyone scoring big and if they do it's probably from a developer for attention. All I have ever won in the spin (from at least 120 spins?) is a max of 1000 and that sounds pretty righed right? Getting 120 spins and highest ever being 100? Yeah. Also, the rules aren't fairly thought out. If you have 2 balls left (8 ball and a regular ball) and you want to do a double, hit-both-in on-same-shot trick, but your table also requires you to select the 8 ball before you hit it in, is STUPID. I tried doing that and I hit both 8 ball and regular ball in on my last shot and I lost because I didn't pick where the 8 ball would go. Why can't they just make it so that you can choose the 8 ball hole BEFOREHAND when you want to hit in, not right before. There rules just aren't well thought out. And I'm done with being paired with someone 12 levels higher than me and getting first shot. That's not fair at all. Why can't lower levels go first? I wouldn't mind if I were a higher level. All I'm saying is this game isn't well-thought out and it has rigged mini games so you get nothing for your dollar.
8 ball pool
by KennyMac215 on 2016/11/22 00:07
If I only had space for one game on my phone and had to choose which one game I'd be rocking out with. 8 Ball pool by miniclip would be my final decision. One of the best games I've ever played on a mobile device. Sure there are plenty other games out there, if your a cool laid back type of guy and are looking for some pure fun and plenty of completion this is the game for you! I recommend everybody download this now, take part in the weekly competitions and win excellent rewards. Also compete with your friends on the leaderboard or even challenge the to a game and go PVP in realtime! Make wagers spank your friends and send them back yo the drawing board lol. Or get spanked, it's an all out fun competitive game community that deserves a spot on your device. You do have an option to make in app purchases but I've been doing well with out spending too much. I've been playing a few yrs and have invested in a few pool sticks but that's up to you. Thanks for taking the time to read my review I'll see you at pool hall. Oh and Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Best pool game around...
by Armysniper26 on 2015/11/01 02:53
Okay, so I have to admit that I've spent a lot of time playing this game. Probably more than I should have. However, as you probably know, it's just that addicting. I've downloaded 3 other pool games off of the App Store, and this is the only one that remains on my phone. I really like the game. My complaints would be as follows. 1.) I've been robbed of my free spins more times than I can count. I just spin the wheel and then it's drops and goes away. It doesn't leave me with the option for an additional spin either. 2.) I've lost tons of games due to poor connections with their servers. Not fair at all. You don't even know what's happening until it's too late and you've missed your turn. 3.) I really wish they would quit putting a million ads on the game. It's almost like they're trying to annoy us. They throw them down from the top of the screen and it's almost like they know when you're about to touch the screen based on setting up your gameplay, so they hurry up and throw an ad on the screen to try to make you touch it. Other than that, I find this game perfectly fine and easy to play. It's a challenge and I like that! Thanks!!

Everything is awesome. No complaints.. I love it.. 10/10
Needs official rules
by Tyler11/20/01 on 2017/09/21 08:17
When you pocket the 8ball on a break, you win. When you scratch with your last shot being the 8ball you lose. Yet this game doesn’t realize that. When you scratch in general you’re supposed to put your ball behind the line and shoot in front of it. This game doesn’t enforce that, have a mode where you can set custom house rules with friends and a tournament mode with friends. 5 stars if that happens
One of the best games in AppStore

Spin to win

Indonesia has the most hacks it seems. Them, and the scumbags from Saudi Arabia. It’s also odd to get “gift requests” from friends who don’t even play. This app is truly trash. It’s a pathetic money-grab, too! I will NEVER give these thugs any money. I suggest you don’t either.

WARNING: SCAM
by Mazan Fan on 2017/09/21 01:19
This game has multiple ways it will cheat you. In my case, when it’s my turn, very often the timer does not start at the full amount. It often starts the countdown sometimes almost half of the full time my cue should have. Also you’ll notice when you first start, your win percentage will be very high. Once you get to around 45%-55%, you’ll start losing easy games to newer players. This is not a true, fair game. It plays well and looks great which makes it more sinister.

The biggest scam of all pool games. If you want to get frustrated with the crap this so the one for you. You do so good for so long then it's seemingly impossible to win. Hmmm, maybe if I made purchases it would be a normal FAIR game.

by Nuluk on 2017/09/20 18:43
This game seems to be favorable to players that purchase items for them because there have been times that I have been shooting and its is my shot, with plenty of time left, and all of a sudden my opponent is shooting. This has happened during a winning shot most often. I have emailed the games creator and many days later they responded that they will get back to me. Many more days passed and they email me that they no longer allow emails from players of the game. It should be against the law that they sell products for you to compete with someone and then allow the opposition to have control of the winning shot. Is an Attorney. General reading this. Someone look into this and verify the cheating please. Other than that the game is fun. Especially if you practice offline on your own.

I enjoyed playing 8Pool until I was told I can't play anymore till I "Update" my game. Well I go to update it and it says it's already up to date and I don't need to update it. I have an IPhone 7... I have a newer phone. My phone is 1 year old so I don't see why it won't let me play it. Until that problem is resolved, I will no longer play the game.
No skill needed
by monstarmy808 on 2017/09/20 05:03
No skill needed algorithms set to make even a 5 year old win the win average is used against the player 60% or better expect to be matched with 30-50% win avg, players and loose , even those with no knowledge of natural deflection can win ball speeds are hacked English will do the opposite of what you want table speeds constantly changing what is that 💩with follow anytime cutting a ball the cue goes forward natural deflection is straight across the table I remember seeing that since I first played 4-5 years ago & it's still the same hilarious when 42% win avg, people do 4 rail poses on critical shots , FKN awesome algorithms

Not worth the down load
by Maf113 on 2017/09/20 03:35
In mid play will exit and give win to opponent. Buy coins and you will lose most every game so you have to buy more. The game cheats. There is no way that I can lose 27 games in a row. If I get down to the 8 ball and sink it the que ball will roll and roll even with a light tap and go in a pocket thus the other guy wins. It become way to obvious at times

Once u start to win too much something has to trigger in this game and u go on a VISCOUS LOSING STREAK... We're not talking 1 or 2 loses here we're talking about endless lost games because your a good player I am level 84 I've had 13 million coins at 1 point the only way I got there was to realize this losing streak and to bet extremely low when I was losing and go back to high bets once I realize the game wasn't being biased anymore. They let low level players make miraculous player shots just because they hit a ball super hard and sets them up perfectly for the following shots mind u this has been done on me numerous times with beginner cues and no spin whatsoever on the ball it's crazy. And my best advice is NEVER EVER purchase coins it seems as though u go into a pool of people that will actually spend money and you lose a lot more frequently than u would if u never made a purchase. Worst 1.99 I have ever spent. The game could be really fun even though it is no comparison to real pool functionality is great the algorithms that they have in place make this game very stressful and almost completely undesirable altogether! PASS ON THIS GAME! DONT WASTE YOUR TIME ITS JUST GOING TO PISS YOU OFF I PROMISE!

by Poolstudent on 2017/08/08 13:29
This is the one of the all time worst games I have ever played in my life! The luck to skill ratio has to be 1352 to 1. I know it's just a game app and it is not the real game but the amount of all I have to do it hit the balls hard and anything goes in is crazy. It would be fine if the app was letting it work both ways but it doesn't. There has been numerous times when my opponent could barely see their object ball and was able to get it in a pocket by only hitting it hard, no spin at all, and not even scratching or completely not getting it in a pocket and perfectly set up for the next shot. If anything it's a hype game because if anyone were to do that in a real game would be sadly disappointed in the misses they will be making and quit on the game of billiards because of an illusion this app creates. Anyone who actually plays billiards in REAL LIFE and are new to pool and want to learn I don't recommend this game for you. This will not teach you how to play but to depend on getting lucky even more then playing pool on uneven tables at Bars. There are plenty better options out there like "Cue Billiard Club: 8 Ball Pool & Snooker" and "8 Ball Pool-Billiards" to name a few. This app will rob you of enjoying and learning from a great sport like Billiards with lucky phantom shots that you will never perform in REAL LIFE, including pros can't even make those shots, and constant frustration.
Love, LOOVVVVEEE this game but....
by Guitar Girl Rocks on 2017/03/11 00:06
I've downloaded and played other various pool game apps (on both my iPhone 6+ and 7+), and REALLY enjoyed playing this one best. But there are a couple things that irks me a bit. 1) Although the app gives you a choice to have the cue strength bar off on the side or bottom of the screen, it still at times gets in the way. There have been quite a few time I've accidentally hit the strength bar and released the cue while attempting to set up my shot. 2) And this is my BIGGEST gripe - the time thingy. I HATE when it tells me that it's waiting for an response from my opponent. Plus it makes you wait a few moments for your opponent to 'respond' (whatever that means), after the game is finished. I can understand giving people X amount of time to take their turn, but does the game need to pause and wait for a response? 3) The game is loaded with bots and fake players. Although playing with an bot doesn't bug me to much but I do wish there was a way the app developers could make the chat option unavailable to them. During games with bots the chat bubble is forever popping up, getting in the way of playing the game. I also notice about 80% of the players in the tournaments are bots. And lastly 4) while I can understand needed to accumulate $$$ to buy better cues and all but why the "recharge fee"? Overall it's a pretty good app, like I said. I wish they're was a way I could set my own chat words.
It is exactly what it claims, a pool game. Very geometrically accurate as well as crisp & clean!
by Haaaawtpancakes on 2016/08/17 03:43
Not sure what all the bs reviews are, claiming that people are getting shots off after the timer ends, & that its a scam for money etc! That's all inaccurate, if it's showing you that people are shooting after their timer has ran down then connect to at least a half-decent internet connection & you won't have that problem. As far as it being a money scam; they may have some stuff in the games store that seems pricey for what it is, but that's how they collect for the hard work and dedication that was put into the game, how they afford a knowledgeable candidate for programming the app etc. You are NOT required to even give them any physical money to play however! Yes, it costs coins to make each game worth playing - so you have something to win besides experience. Yeah, the coins can be costly to purchase with physical money, however, the game pays out free coins all the time & you can acquire them for free in so many different ways, if I was ever to run out myself I know I would never purchase any coin with physical money. The trick is to never run out of coin, never go all in unless your already at the bottom of the barrel, & just try not to play matches that cost a ridiculous amount of coin. Just wanted to clarify, it's most definitely a clean & crisp, completely legitimate & in my opinion, the Top of the Line, 8-ball pool app!
Really excellent game
by Vdodili on 2016/02/27 05:20
I am not one to usually write reviews, but when I saw all the negative ones I had to put in my opinion too. This is by far the best pool game I have seen, for many reasons. Playing with people all over the world has me checking where each new flag I see is from (fun!). More importantly, though, the game mechanics are spot on and very like playing real pool, which I do at home, too. Yes, sometimes the connections are somewhat slow (which I've found more when playing people from Asia), but we're talking a matter of 15-20 second lag which to me is acceptable. I won 250,000 coins once on the wheel, so I know it isn't "rigged" (and I've not spent any real cash yet, either). The one negative comment I agree with is that, while playing one-on-one, it is very easy to accidentally touch one of the high-stakes tables. I did that once, the 50,000 coin table (which was almost all the coins I had), and was very upset but ended up winning that game, so I ended up way ahead -- but it could have easily been the other way around. If the developers could fix that one issue, I think the game could be even better. I'd also love to be able to really chat with the folks I am playing with, rather than canned responses, but I can understand the bandwidth problems that might cause. All in all, this game has been an EXCELLENT surprise and I would highly recommend it to anyone, both seasoned pool players and beginners at the game, as well.

by Nina M Eary on 2016/06/10 00:26
I am convinced now that this game is a scam... I used to love playing, but like the other players mentioned, it will boot you for no reason, or says it lost it & you lose the money & never get back to the game even though there's not ACTUALLY a 'lost connection'! I have NEVER won a big payout on the spin & win either, so that's rigged. As much as I play, the odds would be I would have gotten at least a few... Also, I agree with the guy that says there is no way these low ranking 'people' can have so many break & runs! I have played where 5 times in a row, they ran it & I never got a shot. Also, WINNER always breaks! That is how it is played, always has been! I 'like' how they change the rules as they go along... Now the latest scam is that if you play on the 200K game, your opponent has the ability to keep playing, even though they pocket the ball in the wrong pocket,, & are given ball in hand, you are unable to pick up the ball & move it, & they continue playing anyway, cheating their way thru the game! And today, all of a sudden the Toronto table looks the same as the crappy London table! The most disgusting thing about this game is the fact that you still haven't re-written the codes, so cheaters with cheat codes can't steal all of us LEGITIMATELY good players coins! Always on the Toronto, the Cairo Kasbah & Dubai tables! Wouldn't doubt if it were miniclip employees, ripping us off once again!
Play pool in real life competitively
by James Thurliss on 2015/12/15 18:03
I love this game! I play real pool in leagues and tournaments, so I am familiar with English, banking and cut shots. This game is much more accurate than I was expecting- there are a few discrepancies but it seems like you can purchase different cues to help with the features you're looking for- for example, I use a cue that has high ratings in English which I find helps. I usually dislike apps that are crafted after real life games because of how inaccurate they are and pool is one thing out of all that it is highly unlikely I would go for because it is my favorite thing to do in real life, but another avid player introduced me to it and many of my serious playing friends enjoy it as well. I feel that playing this has actually helped my game- to see more Carom shots and fine tune my (cue ball) leaves because it is pretty accurate. I find since I have been playing the game, (but also working more so have less time to play pool), I am growing as a played as far as directing the cue ball, as well as how I plan (planning the game three to four ball ahead)- every shot you think ahead to determine where you'll be shooting the next few balls and where you need to be on table to go in the right order. Anyway I give it five stars bc I absolutely love playing it all the time, it's helped me with my real life play, it's helped me learn new shots, and become more precise with my English
Waste
by Asdfhhbccm on 2016/06/16 19:58
Don't waste your money on this game!!! I use to love this game until I started spending my real cash on this fake game. For starters, the free spins are BS. I would time my 10 hour limit and the min I open the app, it would reset resulting in another 10 hour wait. I NEVER won big on the free spin. Whenever it got close to the big prizes and would spin back to the lower prize underneath. As for coins, there are times where I would buy because of the advertised double coin and cheated out of that money. Winning big pots with purchased coins is virtually impossible on my end. I would buy 340 or 80 thousand dollars worth of coin and that's when all the expert 8 ball players come out. I would lose countless games back to back never even getting one shot in bc the experts never miss. This only happens when I purchase coins btw. Last but not least, the CONNECTION PROBLEM. how do I have a connection problem with 5 lte Verizon bars???? Or when I'm sitting next to my highspeed internet box?? This connection bs is just another way for you to lose out on games and money. It so happens that I Always get my connection back right when my time is about to be up. Moral of the story, don't spend your real money on these money hungry thieves if you want to continue enjoying the game. P.s all of my problems started after my first real purchase
Great game - minor suggestions
by StringBassDave on 2016/10/07 20:54
My favorite iPhone mpg. The physics are wonderful and feel very realistic. The games last just the right amount of time and I can play anytime I want. Suggestions: game vibrates when opponent loses their turn and it is your turn - very convenient. There are other times when there are long delays in the game, usually related to the opponent's poor connection, where you don't get a vibration and have to keep watching nothing happen waiting for the cue to come silently back so you can keep playing. Sometimes you miss precious seconds or more. Also, when the opponent quits the game - sometimes when you have sent the 8-ball towards the winning pocket - and you have to wait an eternity to be declared winner (with the warning "don't close the game"). I can only hope that the inconsiderate opponent also has to wait at least as long to begin again. It would be nice if the game enforced a 30 second waiting period to punish that kind of behavior. Better yet, let the winner get to the next game much, much faster. Finally, the balls look very realistic, but it can often be hard to tell stripes from solids or even the cue ball on occasions. Especially on a small phone. It would be nice to have an option to make the differences between the balls more obvious.
Well I am officially done with this game
by Anthony Bek on 2017/02/13 01:44
So my experience with a ball in its early stages has been great but when I finally started playing a little bit more intensively I have noticed how rigged they can be. so far I have seen so many issues with the game that I haven't noticed when I was playing earlier but the thing is one of the biggest issues I see is the charge system for cues specially due to the fact that almost every game that I play I need to recharge it as well as cues and general something incredibly better than others sure it may take a long time to get your hands on them it creates an incredible disadvantage to the other side other issues is how doing the same thing which I put a pull through a computer program to see what I would do the exact same shots were taken and those balls they went separate variation from before and some even impossible in fact I believe that people in Miniclip really cater source people who spend more money on the game I don't blame them that's how they were money butI wish that they wouldn't solely be driven by that because it has made the game incredibly unfair and balanced as well as the leveling system because I have seen someone that is the same level as me and same amateur level as me play with God which seems to be a little bit alarming that I can compare apples leveling system and Ranking system to that of counter strike global offensive so not good
1 star for development, 3 stars for smooth controls
by SweetandSourInYourMouth on 2017/02/19 03:35
I don't know if the developers are dumb or just don't know the rules of 8 ball but this game is nonsense. Not only do almost all the shots defy the laws of physics but the rules are just plan made up. Not to mention the nonsensical connection problems that seem to just negate previous shots and ball placements. Literally, I've made 3 shots in a row, it's timed out do to "connection problem" and comes back online to none of my shots ever having taken place and I've ran out of time to shoot, LOL! It's infuriating, which I guess can say a little something about the playability, it can be fun. Just don't expect to actually play. Be ready to laugh at the ridiculous nonsense! Update: this game is complete garbage. The comical aspect has worn off and it is pure aggravating trash. Clearly it is a scam. The developers has devised a formula that allows you to win a few low stake games and then will prompt you to play higher stakes, in which your controls are all of a sudden insanely sensitive, making it impossible to line up a shot. And if you do somehow manage the game will AUTOMATICALLY apply spin to your cue which not only botches the shot but pots your cue ball. An obvious pathetic attempt at getting you to buy more chips. Miniclip is worthless to me. Game is deleted and I will never again download one of their apps. Worthless, greedy, nonsensical trash. Do not waste your time.
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
Love the game. Poor connection. Games cheats you at times though -__-
by DaKotaiPhone6+ on 2017/02/01 03:13
Been playing for a few wks. Love the game. Wasn't having any problems, until I recently. Funny how I was prompted to leave a review, got here and saw reviews on the SAME issues I'm having...(1) poor connection, (2) game cheats you out of chips/cash/wins by disconnecting in the middle of the game or sometimes when it "owes" you coins hourly or for watching a video, (3) once you make a purchase, it'll CONTINUALLY ask you to make purchase your little "pool-loving" heart cannot resist (but you should RESIST..don't be tricked lol), (4) the daily spins hardly ever "award" you more than 100 chips, (5) it's unfair how the game isn't "intelligent" enough to credit you back or BETTER YET not deduct your chips/cash if the game crashes/connection fails!!! -___- Yet, I'm ending this review to hop back on the table and take on my next "victim" hahaha. It's all fun and games. You have nothing much to lose (unless you're BUYING "stuff"..which I already told your hard-headed self not too silly lol). It's fun "earning" new cues though...I'll admit. And the RUSH of playing a tournament...words can't describe & if you win, you should be "terrified" take the CHANCE again (but you will, eventually, any way). GO 8-Ball! Leggo
A so, so game.
by Lone-Drifter on 2017/03/10 00:42
I am an avid pool player in real life and I don't this app to be perfect. But I would expect a lot more than what you get. Especially if you spend any of your hard earned money on it. You will not get what you think you're paying for. They give you a cue to start with. It has no attributes. You cannot get any 'action' on the cue ball whatsoever. So you play a bunch of games in an effort to win a better cue that you can get at least a little draw and English with. Or, you spend your money to buy their 'money' to buy a better cue. So now you think you own a better cue. But you don't. You're only renting it. After so many shots they charge you to keep using it. Additionally, the game has some serious flaws. Example: You pay 10,000 chips to play a game. You break and make a couple balls. So it's your shot again. But first a message comes up that says 'connection is slow, please wait.' So you sit there waiting for them to give you your cue so that you can shoot. You're viewing the table waiting with nothing happening when a message appears saying your opponent won! WHAT??? It was my shot! I was waiting as instructed. That had my cue so that I couldn't shoot. How could I lose? But you lose your chips with no recourse. My advise: Play for fun. But don't invest one dime in this app. It is a major ripoff.
Great execution and playability
by FormerPoolDude on 2017/03/16 20:39
This game is well done and the devs have made it a good multiplayer game. I have been able to get my kids interested in pool and learning the strategy of the 'leave' and how important it is. If you invest a little $ into the game you can get some pretty decent cues that all have different attributes. These can be challenging to switch to as they all have a different response to follow and english. Once you settle on a style you may need to relearn your edge which adds to the game. This is definitely the best pool game I have played across all platforms in many years. There are some frustrations in the algorithms for successful shots and adding complexity to shots that would be harder in real life (suggestion for the devs) e.g. A bridge from the middle of the table with a ball in front should be diminished in its successful trajectory. As I he to high levels the game is still fun but losing it's overall allure. In the end I have found myself seeking out, finding and playing real billiards more in my local. The strategy of the game sticks and my kids understand the bigger harder parts of the game while they work on basics. Highly recommended.
I wish I could give more stars! -Five x zero
by Rfleisch88 on 2015/10/12 13:41
This is the best app EVER!!!!! You can play against friends or random opponents from around the world. The creators (mini clip) outdone themselves with this one!!!!!You can request for coins to play again if you ran out of them by surprisingly sending out mass messages to all of your Facebook friends so keeping in contact with everyone you know just got easier. You might even receive a message or two from some of them stating, keep up the great work on requesting for more coins, you must be rich in that game!. Some of them may even eventually get to a point where they come to your house and destroy all forms of devices that gives you access to internet or the outside world. So don't worry about that your car is fine with insurance. You will come to the realization that all the money you might or have spent on this app, you could have spent it buying a pool table with friends and family members from the comfort of your home. You might reply back and say but how can I play against random opponents from around the world? Well... You can't.... unless you are a world championship 8 ball pool qualifier, who travels the world to play opponents. So if you're feeling peachy and have quite a bit of money to buy coins to give away I mean play with then geez you'll be fine. Enjoy!
Done.
by wwooley42 on 2017/01/04 18:10
I gave this game a chance. Plenty of chances actually. It was fun at first. But upon reading plenty of other reviews, I agree with the fact that this game caters to those who buy coins. And the connection is terrible. For the last 2 days, my connection has gone out while I was in the middle of the daily spin. The game just skipped the spin game and took me to the main screen. 2 days of missed free coins (which you never get many of anyways). The touch on the hit that you have on the ball is insanely unrealistic and inconsistent. I barely hit the ball and it keeps rolling halfway across the table, taking away any clear shots I might have had. Or I line up a shot and it shows perfect, then hits the cushion and I miss. It's annoying. And I've been losing coins like crazy. I'll never spend too much in the App Store, so I never buy more than $5 worth of coins every now and then. And boom. It's gone in a few games. You should never have to face someone whose higher than 5 levels than you either. That's not fair. Plenty of people playing this game, not that hard to find someone around your level. I'm level 45. I shouldn't have to face 52 (someone more skilled/experienced). I'm done with this game. The most disappointing thing is I've built up for awhile. And the game doesn't cater to the loyal fans who come back every day. It was fun at first. But disappointing later on.
Super fun but it seems like the game sets you up to fail.
by Zombieman74 on 2017/05/07 23:51
It seems as if every time I start to get some coins saved up I start getting matched against players that I have no chance against and it's not just one or two in a row it's until I have almost no coins left. I've been playing this game for a while now and I thought it might just be coincidence or me just getting frustrated. No this has happened to me way to many times. Also on the spin wheel I used a free daily spin and I have never gotten more than 2500 coins on it. I've seen the wheel come to a slow moving speed and stay constant passing all the high payouts until I land on 100 coins. I'm not the only one experiencing this because I've talked to people who also play this game and they have felt the same way. I know this is a free app and they need to make there money some how. I'm not one of those people that has so much money to blow on a game like this it just doesn't seem worth the money to spend 50 dollars of real money on game Cash so I can have a chance against the unbeatable people I get matched against. Just would like the game to be a little more fair. If this gets changed I would have no problem giving 5 stars.
Good game. Bad connection.
by Gabe0013 on 2017/01/01 23:27
The action is really good. The game can be addictive. However, there is a MAJOR FLAW. The game often loses its connection. When this happens, you can lose your turn. You can lose your turn & find that the last shot you made didn't count. You can return to the game w/out enough time to shoot. You can return to find you have to reshoot the last shot. Best case, you return to the game w/ a bit less time to shoot. This has to be the top priority of the next update. If they can't fix the connection issue, they should at least make it so that you are returned to the game w/ a new clock. This is extremely frustrating. 😠 l was hoping to write a new review, but I guess that isn't an option. The protocol for when the connection is slow seems to have gotten worse, not better. The connection drops less often, which is good. However, what happens after is worse. I made a shot, was in the process of calling another shot, when the connection dropped. When the game resumed, my shot had been negated & I only had a few seconds to reshoot. This cost me the final game of the tournament. To make matters worse, there isn't even a way to contact the makers through the app. So I have lowered my rating to 2 stars. I would still give it 2.5, but that isn't an option either. 😖
This games rigged
by Rozaysplasher on 2017/03/25 18:58
It's a fun game when playing with your friends but the game absolutely refuses to let you prosper by not purchasing anything. I've lost game after game on unrealistic shots I've lost tournaments where I've had an opponent not even take a shot then magically on the 8 ball I scratch and I'm out . Some games I've sunk a ball in a pocket and it takes me to the home screen like I lost . ON MY TURN !! (And no I didn't accidentally sink the 8 ball) The daily spins are rigged, I can accurately guess what I will receive just by the spin on the wheel , it's never more than 500 coins. Only time I've won something (rare box)was when I first downloaded the game a year ago!! Scratchers are rigged , I won 5 and all 5 weren't winners. The games are all loaded so if you have a decent amount of money and play a high stakes game you are instantly playing a level 60 or 90 even though I'm only level 18. Basically if you pay for everything you'll be successful at this game . Otherwise it's just an okay game. Seriously need to fix all that. Gave the game another chance after they updated it , same ol bs. They never let you win anything beside 150 or 250 coins in the daily spin, amount of coins in the hourly coins is stupid. 30 coins an hour is ridiculous . Fix this game asap
5 Star game with some changes.
by DaGrimmReaper85 on 2015/10/16 04:36
All around a great game that I have been playing for 4 years on and off now other than the fact of the timer glitch. The game freezes up at times causing your timer to run down before you get to make your shot, or reloads the app on the other hand making you lose your shot altogether, or the entire game session you've started. One other thing is the chat options, for Pete's sake give us an open chat where we can converse with our fellow pool sharks and friends. You can even put a filter on it to monitor the language but please give the game an open chat. I'm sure you would keep and gain so many more players. I like the weekly competition, but seriously 750 coins for first prize amongst friends? Up the ante to like 5,000 coins OR $1 pool cash would be great. Yes just $1 otherwise players would build up cash to quickly. Also, Why so many coins to re-charge a cue? I bought the Zombie Cue for 100,000 coins and it takes 20,000 coins to charge it. Most of the time it is a struggle to even get 20,000 coins banked up, and just to throw it away charging a cue for a little extra power and spin? Thanks but no thanks. Would really love to see these changes take place in some future updates. P.S. Add a 9 ball game as well on your main menu.
Biggest Scam out there
by wdwmkr on 2017/05/13 03:07
I'm amending an old review because the longer I had this game the more furious I got at their constant scams and refusal to stand behind their product. Thanks me of the few times I was stupid enough to put money into this they charged me twice and what was advertised was NOT what I got. I sent emails and posted on their Facebook page and sent messages and the only reply I ever got was an automatic one ASKING ME TO STOP EMAILING THEM!. I went through my bank and they investigated and refunded my money. Six months later I received another email saying sorry but you bought it so tough luck. I never heard back on FB messages. I know the world is full of awful people just waiting for suckers but I'm tired of supporting them. Too bad because the game was kinda fun. Just not worth dealing with greedy dishonest small people. My earlier review is below. Unfortunately there are no good 8 ball games. This one has a few bugs that are annoying. One is that when you play with friends your wins are not counted. Also to play one on one is totally random so you could play beginners or pros who run the table. Some of the rules are different. Scratching on the 8 only loses the game if the 8 goes in. And people can reposition the cue ball apparently at will. There are other issues but it is the best I've found.
Best ripoff in the App Store!
by moondog_42 on 2015/12/16 07:24
I've been playing this app since it came out. Back when the only things you could pay for were power ups and more coins/cash. In all that time the only time I ever got more than 1000 coins on the spin was when I got 10,000 the day they introduced the chat packs. Guess how much the chat packs cost to start? Ever since then this app just wants to take your money. Cues used to be pay once and done, now they "recharge" -- of course for coins which you need to buy to keep your big new cue "charged". The new vip feature is the same way. If you level up without paying you will max out before reaching the 3rd tier -- level 150 will put you three levels too short to reach 3rd tier vip status (out of 6). And this is not to mention the non-existent "support" whose first question is something to the effect of "Did you pay? No? Sorry we can't help you at all." And the game is horribly rigged against you anyway, so even if "support" could give you the coins back from their own app screwing up, they'll just take it away from you later when you go on a weird losing streak where nothing goes in the way it's supposed to, or you scratch on shots which should have zero chance of scratching, usually in the side pocket. There are far better and more interesting apps to waste your money on, please don't give any more to mini clip because they only about taking all your money away from you rather than putting out a quality product.
Good app
by ADRiAN_M on 2016/11/26 15:59
Good competitive app to have, fun game. Has some problems when connection is lost like people still getting a shot off when time runs out, or connection is slow causes you to lose your turn. My biggest problem is the scratch offs and the spin wheel. You almost NEVER win anything good. It's always a couple hundred coins. I've had the app for a little over a year and think I hit ONE good jackpot on the spin wheel. As for the scratch off, one time I had like 10 of them I hadn't used, so I decided one day to use them to get some coins, on 7 of the cards it said better luck next time. Those are scratch offs I've earned, and they still didn't reward me with any coins. There is always promos for us to buy coins with my Apple Pay but they never take care of you with a couple thousand coins from time to time. Last thing is when I buy the legendary boxes with the virtual currency I've earned, on the different occasions I unlocked a pool stick I already had. That's just a waste of a box. That's why I use my virtual money to buy those boxes to unlock a new que, not to get one I already have. Pointless to be honest. Fix that and you got a 5 in my book
I love this game but
by LizhaThomas on 2017/02/05 20:00
I love playing 8 ball pool but I have a problem with the daily spin and the earning of bucks the daily spin only gives you the smallest amount of coins as possible and it's really annoying but only once did I ever get 2500 which was cool but that was it and it's very hard to receive gift boxes or scratchers and the only time you can access a box is if you spend your bucks which brings me to my next problem could you make earning bucks easier instead of only receiving 1 every time you level up and if you want more you either have to spend real money or you do offers that make you spend real money too but even the offers that just have you watch videos or do quizzes they only give you 1 and that's not enough and it's not fair that all my friends have or people I go against have all the nice cues you get from the boxes or have more bucks than me and I hate it. I love playing 8 ball but it's hard for me to play everyday all the time so make it easier to earn bucks and make the daily spin more easier to get boxes why put them in there if your going to make it hard to get I would give it 5/5 stars but fix this and I will but right now it's 3
Can't retrieve my accidental bet
by Elnaknowsall on 2015/02/11 14:58
Love this game and by far the best app on the market. Would have given you 5 stars except for the fact that if you accidentally press a wrong betting category, you can't go back and have to play that amount game. For example, I had over 300,000 in my winnings and went to play a 500 dollar game and when I went to scroll to that game, I accidentally pressed the 200,000 category and couldn't correct that so had to play someone with well over a 150 rating. I'm only at a 43 rating so of course I lost the game by a large margin and 200,000 game points. This really made me mad as I worked hard to get these points. In fact this has happened several times. Why can't you fix it so you automatically go back to the same amount game you had previously played instead of having to scroll back to the game. Then if you want to change the bet, you have the option to do so. Plus the way you have it set up, you are automatically brought back to the main screen which starts in the middle of the categories and these are at the higher priced games. And then you have to scroll back for the lower priced games and this is when you can accidentally press the wrong button. Maybe you do this on purpose so people lose their winnings fast and then have to purchase more "coins". Please try to fix this because if not, your ratings will go down. Thanks. Ellie C.
Today my opinion of 8 ball pool is less then yesterday.
by donald-t on 2016/12/21 13:12
Today my opinion of 8 ball pool is less then yesterday, because this latest version has added a useless feature that exists only to get games dollars for all users. Why on earth do we need avatars pictures supplied by the game when they're so plentiful on the Internet? I was examining the new feature when I touched one of the avatars being offered and was quickly build 60 games dollars the equivalent of US$10 for an avatar I didn't even choose! With no prompt for do you want to buy this please supply your password nothing just $60 gone from my account this needs to be fixed and if Miniclip has any morals they will refund the 60 dollars to my account so I will feel better and I'll be able to up my opinion of Miniclip again. MY RATING NOW AMENDED... Well after about 6 weeks Miniclip has finally refunded the 60 games dollars I haven't even checked if they removed the avatar I was blessed with, anyway because they have made things right I've decided to restore my rating to four stars because after all this is a wonderful game that allow competition with people around the world!
Used to enjoy this game ...
by akGreg on 2017/01/16 17:45
I used to enjoy this game, and yes I have some of the same complaints as I've seen others write: connection issues, pushed to buy chips, free spins get you nothing as you never land on anything but $50-$200 spaces, and finally the fact that you end up playing people 20x your skill level (I'm currently level 35 and frequently play people level 50+, even so much as level 100+ on a little rarer occasion). That all said, I still played. But recently, the game has started quitting matches or telling me I've run out of time after it's sat there 'waiting for my opponent to respond' ... the former of which burns up chips and frankly, I have no intention of buying more just because the app is buggy or worse yet designed to pilfer my paid-for chips from me in an effort to get me to buy more. You've taken a player that didn't mind spending $5-10 a week to play something he enjoys and reduced him to someone who will likely be deleting this app as soon as his chips are gone. Don't get me wrong, I like the app, but don't waste your money buying chips to play it. Play as a guest, you won't gain standing, but you'll be able to play without getting rolled like a street corner hustle.
Great Game, PLAYERS RUIN IT
by JeN...1122 on 2017/03/27 22:58
I have enjoyed playing this game for years. However, for the past year, I'll go months without opening the app. I'm not great at the game, but I always play to the best of my ability...it seems like every person I play intentionally screws your over. Example: both of us down to one ball, opponents shot. They don't have a clear shot so they intentionally shoot to tap the ball to the rail, in return blocking me. I get the whole blocking part, during the game...but not to nudge their ball to the rail to block you on your last shot. I am then left with 2 choices, attempt to do the same back, or try to make my shot anyway...when you're calling pockets, you don't really have a lot of options. If I do the same in return, the game will never end! What's the point!? I thought we were there to play?? So I end up trying to make my shot, of course I don't because I was stuck, wrong pocket or ball never made contact, etc....boom opponent has ball in hand. Game over for me. The point I'm trying to make is, the opponent puts me in the situation to give them ball in hand. It's either play their stupid who can block who game or give them the d*mn ball. It's ridiculous. There should be a way games are monitored or a way to block/report players like that. Go to play the game, not be an a**.
UN FAIR
by FunnyPrincess555 on 2017/01/20 06:52
This game was ok at first. It was fun and enjoyable. But it glitches a lot!!! I had 100,000+ coins. All I wanted to do was play a small game. When I was scrolling through them I accidentally hit a huge game. I quickly got out of it. It then brought me back to the home screen where I thought everything was ok. Then It sent me right to the game for a total of 200k. I was so mad because they purposely try and make you touch these high bet places and if you accidentally do then they set you up to fail. I mean honestly a level 29 person should be matched up with someone who is level 80 or 90 like that's really screwed up!!! This game glitches a lot to like if there is a back button and you press it why does it automatically send you into that game. Just don't get addicted to this game unless you would be buying coins and cash 24/7. Another thing that bothers me are the scratchers and spinning the wheel. The most of got on scratchers was a lot but that was like once out of five hundred. Also I'm the daily spin you have a chance to get up to 100k coins or a special box but for the past few years the most I've gotten was 1k now that's supper messed up. I don't think I would recommend this game for a lot of people. Though it's fun it's not worth it.
Don't play if you want fair play
by Trippx13 on 2017/05/05 02:47
This has a worse match making then blizzard with overwatch. You always play someone who is a higher level then you. Not just a few levels higher. But it can span up to 12 (was 12 now it has reached a 14 level difference)levels that I have been matched against. So if your just starting out. You can play someone with more experience at how to play. Next is the waiting for other gamers response... why am I waiting for him? Did he have to give a verbal cue to the app to say yes I want to keep playing? There is a timer for a reason. Lastly is that if you do start out small and have extra money to throw at this app. You will have the advantage every time against someone like me. Who doesn't want to pay to play. If I can give any advice to the app developers. Fix match making to a certain perimeter of levels. Like if I am level 9 I can only go against 5-14. Not flucking 21. And also maybe put a option to play with or without paid cues. So it can have a chance at a level playing field. Also you need to update to keep hackers out. I witnessed some off the wall shots. Not just one. But a whole match of them. Like I got no shots. And they ricocheted all there shots to a perfect hole. No matter where they were positioned.
Rigging at its finest.
by Fox‌ on 2017/01/12 18:35
I first got this game about 2 years ago. I thought it was fun to play and nothing was wrong with it (I was young and didn't really care.) I deleted it after getting to around level 13 or so and downloaded the game about a year later. I started playing it for a while and got to level 18. Then after Black Friday I got a deal where it said "Black Friday sale!" With a nice cue and some coins and a profile picture, and since it was only 2$ I thought I'd buy it, but boy was that a mistake. The game became rigged for me to lose constantly where I was winning a few, then losing a lot, the winning, then losing. I didn't know why this was happening since buying things in a game usually benefits you, but I just kept playing. Then another offer comes up and it's a "New Years Ultra Sale!" and again, it was a good deal for 10$ so I stupidly bought it. Then the game became more rigged. Whenever I played anything above Tokyo warrior I never won. I played 3 games of Las Vegas and lost them all. It's rigged so you lose money and buy more which is so stupid. DO NOT EVER buy something for this game because all you'll do is end up buying more like they rigged the game to do. I'm done with playing this game. It's fun, but it being rigged ruins it. There mini clip, you got your review. You happy? Now shut up about it.
Needs Major Improvement
by Ezyrider123 on 2017/06/09 02:03
I gave this app 2 stars because it needs to be improved. I understand that their goal is for the player to lose & have to purchase coins, cues, avatars, etc. but this app crashes about 30% of the time even if you have excellent WiFi connections. You can also buy chips or win them but you don't them added to your account. I have won over 200K (several times) in points, playing my opponent but not have them credited to my account. Another issue is that when its your turn to break, you can't put the cue exactly where you want to. The ball gets locked into certain areas on the table & thats the only place you can take your shot from. Sometimes when it's your turn, the cue strength (on the side of the table) does not appear leaving you with no way to hit the rack. This could be a fun app but it needs a better software engineer to fix all its problems. Don't get sucked into playing this game when all this happens. Stop playing, save your money.& download another pool app. P.S.- I've already emailed Miniclip 8 Ball about these problems but they have not fixed any of these issues.
🎱🎱 BEST GAME I'VE PLAYED 🎱🎱
by NinZan0415 on 2015/12/24 00:52
I love playing pool in real life, but was very skeptical of how a game would be accurately challenging. In my opinion, aside from actually playing, this game is the next best thing. Thank you for making it possible to have a blast for hours, w/o needing $ to advance much. I love how it randomly pairs u up with people around ur skill level, and from all over the world. Extremely realistic as far as the geometric accuracy. Takes a min to get used to lining up your shot, as it's very sensitive, but that makes it realistic. I like there's a timer for each shot, and it's cool u can in real time pick from pre made messages like "good shot" "so close" and "Another game?" It makes it feel more personal. My only suggestion would be to have more phrases you can choose from that are still free. Or to be able to write your own. Anyhow, totally addictive, and it can actually really help u improve your game in real life by practicing & learning how to line up shots, bank them, as well as the force needed to hit the cue. Realistic $ user friendly. Trust me, if you like playing pool, you'll love this game. Just give it a few rounds of getting used to it, when u do...You won't want to stop!! Thank u for the awesome game! 🤘🏻😎🎱
Amazing Game !
by LukeEuro on 2017/07/21 11:34
been playing this game for years now on and off. no matter what other game i play i always return to playing 8 ball pool. it's extremely fun and competitive. i've made a few good friends off of it too. this particular game has never had bugs or lags for me and it's consistently updated to keep the gaming experience flawless. aside from the constant new modes and tournaments they have there's always something you can get or achieve and that keeps it a really interesting game nonetheless that's it's something as simple as pool. you can play your friends that you have on facebook and in those games you can freely type your chats. i wish you could do the same through regular multiplayer mode if they weren't already facebook/added friends but regardless i would highly recommend this pool game over any other. i've tried many other pool games and they don't quite have the same feel as this one. give it a shot and i promise you won't be disappointed!!!
Used to be a fun game
by Nneyaa on 2017/08/21 14:48
I used to be addicted to this game. Spending real money on coins for cool cues and everything. First. There's no personalization just playing endless games which cost tons of coins! Just to loose ALL THE TIME. The luck to skill ratio is WAYYY OFF. Why have levels if they aren't going to reflect the actual talent of the person playing. You have pool sharks who are "level 2" making you think you have a fighting chance. then you loose the entire game. Or you have beginners who are level "100" come & miss every shot & you win. I don't understand. Go back to the old game. It made more sense & was fun to play. Third why must EVERY game cost coins just to play? Sometimes you end up paying just to loose. Sounds just like a stupid casino scheme to me. Also like I mentioned if the level is "supposed" to reflect you're "talent" why am I level 30 being paired with level 2 or level 60 players? Half the time level 60 players have better cues & when just based on the fact they have a greater aim! Not because they can actually play pool.

I love this game. When I'm in a game playing mood this is the one I go to 70% of that time. The only issue for me is if you play nine ball and your experience level is low in nine ball you can be matched up with a player with the experience of a rating of over 100 or more when your experience rating is nine or less. That means that the best players are free to pray up on and take the lower players chips very easily some people will quit the game before it starts. But as usual there are people out there that don't care about anything but getting more for themselves so I wish the developers would address this situation because it is very aggravating to be so dominated and have your chips taken away from you like you're a baby with candy. Other than that I have no complaints about this game at all and I do love it and I won't let the greedy one push me away. However when you do beat one of these hot shots what a great feeling to know that that they just got beat by at nine so catch 22.
Not Happy
by xxxnothappy123 on 2017/03/21 05:50
I have a few complaints. First, the spin to win is rigged, but I think everyone knew that. Second, you can tell that most of the "global people" you are facing are computers. Notice how the "random" opponent is ready right away? I understand that there is a lot of people on the app, but still. Next, I have ended up missing perfectly aligned shots, and my opponent is making horribly aligned shots. Third, every time I shoot the 8ball in, the cue ball goes in, even if it's not aligned which ends up me losing and then I get mad. Then, if you're going to play a game, stay on the game, I'm really tired of seeing the "waiting on your opponents response..." every time I make a shot, and I'm sitting there for 5 minutes waiting for them to come back. And finally, I played the all in and my opponent and I were 1-1, so we got to the final round, and I never got to play. It sat at the "match will start" screen for 10-15 minutes, I ended up just giving up on waiting because I knew that it probably wouldn't go through. I'm not buying anything from them (after reading all the reviews), and I'm considering deleting the app. Update: I just checked mine and I ended up winning the match that I never played?
Make 8 ball pool not only the best pool game but one of the best games
by Charlieee1986 on 2017/06/08 02:22
8 ball pool is fun but it would be much better if you could chat with opponents and or friends the same how ever you wanted too honestly say whatever you wanted too say whenever you wanted to say it. I love the fact that there is numerous different tournaments with different tables and different bets placed. What would also make 8 ball pool better is if the connection wasn't so bad at times. I have lost tons of money and my rank has suffered because of poor connection on 8 ball pools part when I have a great signal, great wifi connection, on my brand new iPhone 7 with beautiful weather and hot outside and not a drop of rain. This next topic is big when you are deciding on your next shot and as times runs out it just as you it your desired ball it resets and gives the shot to your opponent and negates your shot when you hit your desired ball just as time runs out. Please fix all these issues and 8 ball pool will attract more people and make 8 ball pool more money in return win win for everybody
3.5/5
by Fdsaghjkkl on 2016/11/21 03:04
This app was recommended to me by one of my close friends. He urged me to play it, ensuring that I'd have tons of fun through extensive gameplay, and he was right. The game is smooth, and it makes me feel as if I can play pool in real life (I can't). What my friend failed to mention to me in his description of the game however, is how mind bogglingly frustrating it can be at times. There are a lot of "cheap" pockets and glitches in the game. Also, there isn't much matchmaking. You can quite easily be paired with someone who has won substantially more games and has better cues. It makes matches with these type of people very difficult and punishingly enough, if you manage to win against them, your reward will be the same as if you won against any other opponent. Also there is a freemium feel associated with the game. All of the good cues have to be bought with in game cash, which can be bought with real money. That is the quickest way to become good in the game, and it feels cheap to players who want to become good the old fashion way. Through all the flaws however, I can't deny the fact that I am have a great deal of fun playing the game. I would highly recommend checking it out.
Satisfying but aggravating
by Iaretheone on 2017/06/14 00:43
I play using an iPhone and sometimes when I go to power up a shot , it moves the cue making me miss easy shots and losing the game... Also the cue will change position slightly after I release it to make shot... Overall very realistic game and highly additive ... Wish there was a feature that would keep people with more than 3 higher levels from playing at tables you were at .. It is hard to beat a level 92 player when you are only a 38 level .. Good game... I recommend it if you love to play pool! One thing lacking that is sorely needed is a button and dialog box that asks if you truly want to play in that room ! I accidentally hit a room that I was not skilled enough to play in and lost a match that cost me 1/2 million hard earned coins !!! Needs some way to verify you really want to play in a room !!! Lost 2.5 millions in accidentally hitting a room .... bad part was , I never even got 1 shot ! Guy broke and run the table !!!
Really?!?!?
by Ladybuglm on 2015/09/12 01:19
Your app keeps asking for a review? So here is your review... When I first got the app it was pretty cool. As other reviewer's had said you first start playing and you win a lot of games . BUT the more you rank up you start to lose more and MORE! But you know what I find funny also.. is that the more you spend with your own money the more you seem to lose. Funny huh??? NOT! It's not like I'm a bad player because I've had many winning streaks . And if I played one-on-one for little while it was pretty much a 2 to 3 game win my gain . But as of late I've been losing at least 6 to 7 games in a row. And I'm losing on games that would be an easy win!!! The easiest shots you can get in but all of a sudden your off by a millimeter, or you get " slow connection" when your wifi is working just fine you get booted off and when you come back on you loose the shot and the game to a level 28 and I'm a 53!!! Another thing you should be able to text your opponents. Have real talk. Not having to buy these quotes that are just ridiculous. This game is good . But just to pass the time. DONT SPEND YOUR OWN MONEY!! because once you start that, they start to force you to spend more by having the computer rig your games . Once my money is all gone BECAUSE it will disappear, I will be deleting the app. Not getting any more of my money . Not with all the cheats going on.

by Steven_keuker on 2017/09/16 00:07
Love the game but just letting you developers know to please issue a update to patch this bug or glitch that I and others have been experiencing so lately I have been trying to play your fun game but within 5-10 seconds of being in the app it has been booting me out but the app doesn't disappear or crash it's still active in the background and I try to get back in it again and it does the same thing over and over again and I can't play at all or even be in the app for more then seconds without this issue reoccurring my friend also has an I phone 6+ mine is a 7+ and he is experiencing the same issues I wanted to make sure that it wasn't my phone malfunctioning or overheating but this is the only app he or I have been having issues with please help thank you keep up the good work 👍👍👍 p.s. I have tried restarting my iPhone and even deleting then re downloading the app but no changes so far
Addicting And Frustrating
by ICanWinBig.com on 2016/11/16 10:21
I spend too much time playing. It is frustrating because it seems that too many times that there are glitches that render you a loss. Like when you hit one ball, pot that ball, and it gives your turn to your opponent saying you need to hit a striped ball. Glitches like these and other seem to fade away for a bit as long as you are making purchases to play. Why is it addicting? If you really love playing pool it is as close to the real thing as possible. However balls never leave the table other than through the pockets. The algorithms used in the game almost are undeniably similar to ones used in slot machines. If you haven't made a purchase in a while almost every game you play will be against not only higher ranked players but also to players that have an extremely high win percentage compared to yours yet at times you do seem to be unstoppable and other times it seems the only ball that goes in the pocket is the cue ball. I play on because I'm addicted. Don't start playing unless you like addictions in your life. I keep saying to myself to delete this game forever. Maybe I will sometime but not today. 😎🤔☠️
Unhappy old pop league player
by Squaw1 on 2017/02/01 09:35
This game is BS rigged and all-around just wrong your alignment lines ought to be better when you line your shot up and you know it's dead on you take your shot and it bounces off the side where you scratch on the eight ball knowing that your shot was not a hard shot there are so many times that I have played this game on different levels that I should have one pretty much most of the games I'm not saying I'm perfect but this game is BS there is no time limit when you're playing billiards or poolso that for one ought to be cut out your cut shots your lineup lines are to be more than a minute spec on the ball so somebody can see their line of travel the ball is taking even with glasses on you can't hardly even see it on a cut shot. This game has sooo many problems and issues compared to the actual game of pool/billiards it's so not funny. I will not purchase the full version. I'm just glad they give you a free version to play so you can see how just Adderly ridiculous their game is they cheat and you're right if you don't buy coins or anything from their shop they're just gone give somebody else the game let them win and yes you should be matched up with a player of your caliber not a happy camper and you get zero stars
Great!! But why no 9-ball?
by Alan Posssumballs on 2015/12/15 05:48
Title of this review withstanding, this is really the best pool game app available. I took the time to play almost every other one there is. Where the others fall far short is the physics of ball movement and the way the balls react when contacting other balls (english, backspin, topspin, angle:direction, etc.). For example, once, a cue ball hit the object ball. The object ball sunk into the intended hole, but the cue ball, after hitting the object ball very softly, with backspin, and about 3 finger lengths away from the pocket moved at almost the same speed and in the same direction as the object ball, following it into the hole, scratching. I literally heard Isaac Newton spinning in his grave. This NEVER happens with 8-ball pool. If a ball goes in to a pocket not intended, I know exactly what I did wrong. It is never the fault of the app. Besides that, they are relatively generous with game resources. As long as you don't play like a moron, you will probably never have to spend a dime of your own money. So this all being said, the one thing stopping this from being my favorite all time game app is the absence of 9-ball from its pool formats. Yet I can't get myself to remove a star in spite of that. Great game!!!
Please do something about it
by Jakz360 on 2016/10/17 22:51
so this game i think is awesome but theres a few things that i would suggest to the creators of the game that would make it much better. So a while ago you would be able to buy a cue with your coins which was good and thats that but now you have to pay to recharge your cue so now i cant recharge my awesome cue that i got because its too much coins and i try to gain alot of coins in the game but its just hard. the next thing is the coins say your going into moscow winter club to play the prize isnt $1000 the prize is $500 from that other person if you win because they take the money out from you when you play the game so basically your only making $500 which never made sense to me. and another thing is the aim isnt fair at all because me or my opponent can break and then pot every single ball in and then pot the 8 ball in and win the game without the other player even getting a chance to play they basically just watched their coins go down the drain thats why im not a high roller. so this made me delete the game many times because i get way too mad at it i think the game would be a million times better if they made this game fair and better with buying cues and until they fix that (which they probably wont) then ill give it five stars.
DO NOT PUT MONEY INTO THIS GAME
by iiDane on 2016/07/09 02:03
Okay let me start off with the mini games are rigged. You are (from my experience) 100% guaranteed to get under 2500 (even though 2500 is rare) In the free big spin they give you. Never have I ever heard any story of anyone scoring big and if they do it's probably from a developer for attention. All I have ever won in the spin (from at least 120 spins?) is a max of 1000 and that sounds pretty righed right? Getting 120 spins and highest ever being 100? Yeah. Also, the rules aren't fairly thought out. If you have 2 balls left (8 ball and a regular ball) and you want to do a double, hit-both-in on-same-shot trick, but your table also requires you to select the 8 ball before you hit it in, is STUPID. I tried doing that and I hit both 8 ball and regular ball in on my last shot and I lost because I didn't pick where the 8 ball would go. Why can't they just make it so that you can choose the 8 ball hole BEFOREHAND when you want to hit in, not right before. There rules just aren't well thought out. And I'm done with being paired with someone 12 levels higher than me and getting first shot. That's not fair at all. Why can't lower levels go first? I wouldn't mind if I were a higher level. All I'm saying is this game isn't well-thought out and it has rigged mini games so you get nothing for your dollar.
8 ball pool
by KennyMac215 on 2016/11/22 00:07
If I only had space for one game on my phone and had to choose which one game I'd be rocking out with. 8 Ball pool by miniclip would be my final decision. One of the best games I've ever played on a mobile device. Sure there are plenty other games out there, if your a cool laid back type of guy and are looking for some pure fun and plenty of completion this is the game for you! I recommend everybody download this now, take part in the weekly competitions and win excellent rewards. Also compete with your friends on the leaderboard or even challenge the to a game and go PVP in realtime! Make wagers spank your friends and send them back yo the drawing board lol. Or get spanked, it's an all out fun competitive game community that deserves a spot on your device. You do have an option to make in app purchases but I've been doing well with out spending too much. I've been playing a few yrs and have invested in a few pool sticks but that's up to you. Thanks for taking the time to read my review I'll see you at pool hall. Oh and Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Best pool game around...
by Armysniper26 on 2015/11/01 02:53
Okay, so I have to admit that I've spent a lot of time playing this game. Probably more than I should have. However, as you probably know, it's just that addicting. I've downloaded 3 other pool games off of the App Store, and this is the only one that remains on my phone. I really like the game. My complaints would be as follows. 1.) I've been robbed of my free spins more times than I can count. I just spin the wheel and then it's drops and goes away. It doesn't leave me with the option for an additional spin either. 2.) I've lost tons of games due to poor connections with their servers. Not fair at all. You don't even know what's happening until it's too late and you've missed your turn. 3.) I really wish they would quit putting a million ads on the game. It's almost like they're trying to annoy us. They throw them down from the top of the screen and it's almost like they know when you're about to touch the screen based on setting up your gameplay, so they hurry up and throw an ad on the screen to try to make you touch it. Other than that, I find this game perfectly fine and easy to play. It's a challenge and I like that! Thanks!!
