IOS UPDATE CAUSES CRASHES (late May17)
by Smoochie-slappy on 2017/05/29 04:07
I love this game but, upon just updating my IOS...8ball crashes several times each game thus causing me to lose games. I will not play again until an update is issued to remedy these problems. PLEASE FIX THIS!

"Recharging" a cue stick?
by PeoplePlanter on 2017/05/29 01:37
Decent game, but the fact that you require cue sticks to be recharged is a deal breaker. What you require to recharge a cue stick is a completely separate 1 star review in itself.

Doesn't fairly give you a turn to break
by Lbmolly on 2017/05/28 19:50
Would have given 5 stars, but lately it's never let me break at all. So 2 stars considering it cost me 60 million in opponents getting to break first and winning on the break 6-7 times in a row just to rub it in. I have normally enjoyed this game, but lately it cheats on being fair about who gets to break. Since it's fairly easy to win on the break in 9 ball, it's a big deal when you bet 10 million and don't get to break for 7 games. When they finally let you break your matched up with someone playing for considerably less like 2.5 million instead. Very unfair, poorly designed in that sense.

by Keyversmith on 2017/05/28 18:45
This game could be awesome but it is not. If you do not spend money you will not win. Sooner or later you will lose everything. This game should just let us play and quit manipulating who wins. A very unsatisfied customer.

UNFAIR u will hate this game in long run -clearly RIGGED
by Frustratingfkngame on 2017/05/28 07:37
This game is totally frustrating and you will end up hating due to how unfair it is.... Will keep you thinking on your feet at advanced levels and can be fun if it wasn't for how scandalous it is. My HUGE gripe is at times ( suspecting more than not) you definitely will encounter robot/computer players that you can't beat to save your life. Also the mysterious scratches on perfect shots and bogus shot placement (cue ball leaves etc) because these dorks at Miniclip totally unfairly control your destiny in this game .... I personally don't pay to play and have noticed clearly that the game will not allow me to advance anymore like it used to by pairing me up with robot players that I can't beat no matter what I do and I'm a fairly advanced player and grew up playing REAL pool (have advanced to high levels over 7 million coins) without paying before only to lose it all rather quickly and certainly faster than winning the coins due to the rigged robot players.:( Can only imagine paying to play this unfair game how quickly you would go through your paid for coins and spending a lot of money on here if you are a frequent player ? Guess to sum it up ok game that is challenging and fun to play but can also be totally frustrating and completely unfairly rigged .....
Choice of challenge

Designers don't understand pool
by BigGing0 on 2017/05/28 04:26
This game has a lot of good features. Unfortunately, they didn't bring in anyone that understands geometry and physics for programming. I'm a level 6 APA shooter and have had success in this game only because I've learned to adapt to the incorrect angles. Not off the initial contact, but the way the cue ball comes off of the rail and the object ball. The shot clocks seems to change depending on your opponents internet connection, which is very frustrating. This game could be great if the designers and programmers understood pool a little better.

by Loyalty97 on 2017/05/28 03:49
I think it would be better if people are able to type chat vs pre made chats like "well played" or "nice try"........ also when your waiting to play a friend online you should be able to view the game they are currently playing it's like a waiting area you can watch the game until it's your turn And why is it so hard to get coins and cues it really makes you not want to play it I sometimes rather play someone on iMessage instead of this app 😒

Refunded Purchase.
by Lewis Waldeisen on 2017/05/28 00:32
I cannot find anyway to contact the ap developer other than here. I mistakenly purchased 2 million coins instead of 20,000 coins. My bank has refunded the money to my account so please take back the 2 million coins. Thank You.
Rigged
by Game is certainly rigged on 2017/05/27 22:53
First off, if you cant tell the daily spins are rigged so you never land on a high prize, you're exactly who they market the game to. After playing for awhile you'll notice the balls ending up in scratch positions. No im not a newbie I play real pool and know how the game works. They coded this game to where no matter what you do, use english, low power etc, you scratch. I've played over 5 thousand games and held a 61.1 win percentage for awhile im not a noobie. I shoot the same shot when i break and sometimes the balls dont even move.. the programmers coded it so if you do a high power shot, no matter what english u use the cue ball makes a b line right for the pocket and changes speeds. I got up to the 8 ball on a 60k tournament. The game wouldn't let me choose a pocket to shoot it in so my time ran out. Game is clearly rigged.

by LDenton on 2017/05/27 15:11
It's a nice game but if you know how to play real pool then you will find many discrepancies between this and real pool but it's not a bad game the developers should have just done more research before the release

Charging without permission!
by Mutnik on 2017/05/27 14:44
I just got an apple receipt, saying I authorized payments which I did NOT! I have spent some money on this game recently but not in the last week!!! Also, why is it pairing me (level 50 49% win rate) with people on level 104+ with a 60% win rate!!!???? You should pair people based on the same win ratio/level! It's so rigged it's not funny. I'm supposed to get 500 coins for watching videos but it's only letting me have 15 now wth. And Once you buy coins it's almost impossible to win games. They want you to constantly buy, buy, buy. I never do in app purchases, but for some reason I'm addicted to this game and have spent quite a bit of money on it. Think I'm going to delete it soon if something doesn't change. If you pay for a golden spin you land on 3,000 or at most 3,500 (the least amount on the spin) and the regular daily spin you're lucky to get 500!!!! I've played people on level 21 that have won over 4million and only played 400 games. It's not possible! The makers of the game have made it so you can not contact them, so we have to leave our grievances here. Hopefully they start reading some of their reviews and do something!!!!

Surprise box scam
by Fixurcrap on 2017/05/27 12:36
I guess I don't have to explain boxes are rigged for you to just get enough pieces then to get the rarest cues you then keep getting the same pieces it should be so you don't get repeated ones and if you inquire about it they just ignore you. Don't spend your money on this game

Lame
by jedishark79 on 2017/05/27 10:23
If you like to be annoyed and feel cheated this is the app for you. It seems as though 95% of the shots scratch, (white ball in the pocket). It's as though the programmers were a little too lazy to make the cue ball go anywhere besides into a pocket. I know how to play pool in the real world and know that most of the cue balls that spin, wiggle, and slope their way into a pocket in this game would not do so in reality. Great job guys! You almost had a good game.
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.
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!
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
Mrs.
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!
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.
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.
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
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!
Fun, but has issues
by 289v8 on 2014/07/25 23:45
This game is a lot of fun, and it's cool to play live with people from all over the globe. But I find a few things to be very problematic. The main one is server snafus. Several times I've been in a match where the opponent is shooting and we get a message to wait on the server. Then suddenly I get the message the opponent has won, and often I've not even had my turn. The only saving grace was my wager was reasonable and thankfully I hadn't bet a large sum. Other times I've been in the middle of my shot and the same thing happens and I'm told I ran out of time. I know it's not my internet connection because this has happened regardless of where I'm connected and we are not experiencing connectivity issues. Also, some weird things like being able to make a long distance shot with a severe cut with ease, which is a very very hard shot in real billiards. Finally, no ability to jump an opponent's ball reduces shot options. This is a legitimate shot in most games. Update: I have tired of this game for one reason - the majority of the competitors are kind of douchy. Either they taunt you all during the match, or they are cowards who won't rematch after winning. In real billiards there is a protocol like golf where you are quiet when your opponent is shooting. And unless you are playing a pay table where you give up the table when you lose you rematch. Think I will dump this app. The people online kind of ruined it.
GREAT GAME, I LOVE IT!
by lbdonp on 2014/12/09 02:48
It's a great game if you like playing pool. it's pretty realistic with the way the cue ball slides in action. You get to play with people from all over the world in real time which is awesome because you can see the flag of their Country, however.. it only shows the flag and doesn't say the Country so alot of times I don't always know what Country some of the flags are from. Developers, it would be great if you put the name of the country under the flag that way this game could be a learning experience in more ways than one. Yes, I have gripes (lol) like there was a glitch and I lost my semi pro status and all my coins once and had to start over as a guest again.. almost 50k in coin I lost too and they never did return my email about it but oh well, I'll just stay in the free section and wont make any purchases until the customer service becomes better. sometimes the connection is slow and I'll end up losing a game because of it, but I've won a lot of games because of the other persons connection issues, so atleast I know it's not just me. Other than that, I play this game daily and I've never been one to play games but I love pool and this app blows away any other pool games out there that I've downloaded... so far. It's a great game and a lot of fun and highly recommended.
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.

by Onecentaur on 2017/02/23 15:24
I like it. I play it often. Not much to complain about the game other then the constant reigning to spend money on pretend pool equipment. I can see why any app that is popular that is making money from the adds they sell and at great profit yet they need to get all they can. And that is what a lot of app do, but when is it enough? Proffers from add space sales is a lot of money. Yet they still want more. When is it enough? My old lady and I put a belly dance show on once a month and when we started 10 years ago we decided not to charge the customer or the dancer. We are doing it for the love of it. (Well she loves it and I love her so between you and I I love it too) Just ask her she will tell you I am. 😈 Think about it where would you go to play a game , to a place that is grinding you at every turn. I delete apps like that. Me if I was the CEOs of this game company I would not charge the gamers. But the adds sales are just doing business, the gamer on the other hand is everybody's bred and butter. And you don't have to charge them so a no charge policy would bring players by the millions. And then the amount of people that are seeing the add is 10 fold as to what the competitors can retain as they clean out you pocket book. But sadly money makes the world go round.
Love it!
by ReveryBass3 on 2014/10/15 13:47
Reviewed this game a few weeks ago, and most of what I posted below still stands. However, since updating the OS on my phone, it seems I have to delete and reinstall this game almost every time I try to play it. It opens up like normal, but after choosing 1 on 1 or tournament, there are no options to choose a game location. Also, mini games don't work right, there is only a blank slot machine there, no pictures or info on the wheel and no coin values anywhere. It's like the game can't find the files it needs to reference in order to run properly. It's a pain, and I'm getting close to just deleting it and NOT reinstalling it. My original review is below: Great game overall, barring the occasional connection issue. Matchmaking for some games and tournaments can sometimes be skewed, I've found myself as a lvl 16 in a tournament with all other players at lvl 50 or higher... Aside from that though, it's a great pastime. The 25 free coins per hour and the daily free spin are enough to keep you playing even after losing everything, without having to spend real money unless you want to. I do buy spins or coins every now and then though to support the developers, in hopes they will either add a 9 ball game to this app or create a separate 9 ball app on the same game engine.
Great game but it has some problems
by burke0315 on 2014/05/19 02:03
This is great pool game. I find it a lot like real pool and that isn't easy to find. I like the tournament games but I have discovered that the best way to level up without losing a bunch is to play the 1 on 1 games. The tournament games are tough because they do a pretty good job of matching you up against very good players. The 1 on 1 games aren't easy either but they are more fair because they also do a pretty good job of matching you up against people of your same skills but still enough of a challenge that you can get better. The one bug I have discovered that I absolutely hate is when the game suddenly freezes. There is always a little message that pops on the bottom right hand corner says waiting for server response, please wait. So I wait and cringe because I know that all that hard work that I did to try and that game will just go down the drain and I can't get it back. Sure enough the game quits automatically and I have just lost 25 coins or however much coins I spent to play the one on one game. I do not quit myself the game quits itself if that makes any sense. This does not happen every time the game freezes but enough that it caused me to write this review and hope that it gets fixed. I hate losing all those coins after working so hard to get double the amount that I spent.
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.
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.
8 Ball Mini-clip Pool
by Crooked Politician on 2014/09/27 14:32
I like this game. But I hate the cheaters. They want to win every game and can't play the game as it was meant to be as a game of fun where everyone can enjoy themselves win or lose. So, since lots of people will do anything to win a few chips, which shows just how cheap they are... Management should monitor the games more often and give us a way to report these people. It ruins the game for many who just want to play for the enjoyment of this great game Miniclip has created for us all. It was made to play where all are equal and the longer you play the more skilled you become! I love playing where the game is on a fair and equal opportunity for all!! Please if you are someone who is cheating...don't play here go somewhere else! Let us enjoy the game as the creators meant for it to be. I thank the people who put it all together for us and please respect the Players and the owners of this web site and keep it enjoyable for everyone. I really love playing here and want each and everyone to have a fair and equal playing field. If the shoe fits were it, you know who I am speaking to. Again thank you Mini-clip for the enjoyment and hours of fun you have given us, please bar for life these who abuse other players. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!
🎱🎱 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! 🤘🏻😎🎱
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.
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
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!!
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
Maybe you're not as good as you think...
by Br'er Bill on 2014/09/09 16:57
Connection issues I agree but all the soreheads whining about the game being rigged, maybe you just stink. Peruse the APA rules for 8-ball and ball in hand is proper on any scratch or when no ball contacts anything after cue strikes object. Table remains open after break shot regardless of what balls are potted. However, in my league a scratch on the 8-ball loses. The physics are pretty good and those that don't think so should get off the couch and go try some real pool. Shots that seem impossible in real pool don't give you guidelines to show where both balls are going so yes, your likely hood of making them on a game increases. I play as a guest, level 32, and I'm not computer generated. I've run the table both on game and a real table, it's not impossible with good shot selection and a little luck. I've been skunked by players with a single digit level, see previous sentence. If you think buying coins a rip off then don't buy them, I don't, earn them. "I got beat by a level 3, I got overmatched by a higher level player, I don't know he to shoot without scratching..." Oh please people, it's just a game and more fair than you sour grapes give it credit.
Too sloppy
by Chaoticus6754 on 2014/06/21 03:00
I enjoy playing this game, it has realistic pool game play, fun side games, and cool cues, along with the ability to play different tournaments. There are several frustrating issues, however, such as allowing for "slop" game play, allowing players to continue shooting after making a shot that was made out of pure luck. I can understand wanting the game to appeal to players of all levels of play, but the game already provides a significant source of help with the "guideline" they've included. The guideline shows the player exactly where the cue ball is going to strike the object ball, as well as the angle both the object ball, and cue ball are going to take after the initial contact. Furthermore, if a player desires to play a more realistic game of pool, in which players have to "call their shots," they have to pay through the nose to get that opportunity. The "win percentage" stat is therefore useless, because a player loses percentage after every failed match more or less. How is it then that a player can use this information, if players win by getting lucky? Either make it so that "slop" play is no longer allowed, or bring the prices of the more difficult matches down significantly for the players that want more of a challenge, and want not to be cheated out of a hard fought win.
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.
Help!
by Makennac14 on 2015/08/10 18:54
It's a really great and fun game but.. I've been wanting to okay for awhile now and I've had this game since last year and never had a problem but like 5 weeks ago it logged me out from Facebook on the game so I press "log in with Facebook" and it says "8 pool ball would like to access your friends and profile" blah blah blah, so I press okay. Then it says go to setting > Facebook to allow 8 pool ball to log in with Facebook to I got to my settings on my phone and I go to Facebook and it don't have 8 pool ball on thee in my Facebook setting so I can't allow access to it. So I go to 8 pool ball in my iPhone settings and it don't have Facebook under there so I can't allow it to there either but like I said 5 weeks ago my uncle (also plays this and his wife) and he told my to delete the app and change my Facebook password and then he also said some other things to do but I asked him the other day what all did he do and he said he can't remember, so that day it worked fine and then the other day it logged me out again and then all that about it not showing in my setting is what I need help on... So please take the time to read this. I really need help 😩
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!!!
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.
A so, so game.

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.
Okay
by Judodad3babies on 2015/08/19 15:21
The game is fun thats for sure. But like ive read on other reviews, there are some issues. I do believe that once you have gained a certain amount of coins the game starts acting funny like when you shoot a ball in one direction and it happens to go slightly off or the slow connection notification meanwhile my internet service and wifi are great, performing same breaks but getting different results while using the same cue or times when you gently hit the softly into the pocket and it sits on the ledge as if it was defying gravity (if this was reality ofcourse) also like when the same force is used on the same or similar situations yet the speed of the ball differs. In order to fully enjoy this game i believe one would have to purchase the paid for cues, then you would be doing ridicilous and unrealistic shots too. As for the chat, it should be open so you can type in as you please. Other games have open chat that operate like text messages. And last but not least, for sure the game has computer controlled profiles to keep people from exceding certain limits without paying for items. In all the game is fun and good to pass time with. I would rate 2.5 stars but thats not an option. God bless and Jesus our Lord and Saviour loves you as you are.
Accurate game play BUT....
by Jhandi Doe on 2015/09/30 21:03
This is a very fun game to play and if I was basing a review on a first impressions, I would give it 5 stars. Would be a great app to play if you don't get too involved in the game play. But, after a couple months of playing, I'm considering deleting. First and foremost, the app has MAJOR NETWORK ISSUES. I will be right in the middle of a game and the app will restart, act like your last shot didn't even happen stating "waiting on opponents response" or "connection slow" when I've got 4 bars LTE, or give an automatic win to your opponent! It's enough to make you lose your s*it! Or possibly, and I really hope this isn't the case, but a lot of people have been saying the app is "rigged". Meaning, the more and more you play and pay for things, the more "issues" arise. I can vouch for that in a way as when I first started playing this app, there were ZERO "network issues" and I would be getting 5,6 or even 7 game win streaks. Now that these "network issues" keep popping up, it's hard to even complete a tournament without the app kicking you out of the tournament and returning to app's home screen. Like I stated before, seriously considering deleting due to these shady issues. The app itself is fun and addicting enough without this BS!
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. 😖
Seriously?!
by DiamondLover1738 on 2015/09/15 01:15
This game is good like other people said, but then you start losing. Some people might say you're just bad a playing but they're wrong.I have a few concerns. I was just going to play the 100,000 game a few minutes ago, I've just payed 50,000 coins when a ad comes up. I exit it out when all of a sudden I'm back on the homepage and most of my money is gone! What's up with that? Then when I JUST started another game it said connection is slow please wait, so I did. 10 seconds later the other player was hitting in the black ball! Is there something wrong with this game? That's not all though, when I challenged my cousin and started playing it said once again, connection is slow please wait. I was just waiting when my cousin said that's a good shot, I was like what? Then when I looked at my screen it was replaying what had just happened a few moments ago. Another time was when I was playing then the game started to glitch and soon I ran out of time! I tried to tap and move the pool stick but it wouldn't move. Please fix and I'll give 5 stars. Another thing is you should put back on 500 instead of 200, AND PLEASE! You should make people be able to talk on here. Not the chat bubbles but where you could like write to each other. It would be interesting and fun!
Humble Servant
by Von Meister AH on 2014/03/10 08:50
When playing this game of Billiards on my i-Phone, it is extremely annoying that when you are trying to shoot and the game is not letting you respond or States... Please wait, waiting for server to respond or opponent. Also the power templet gauge that allows You to control the Strength in which you desire to shoot the cue ball is on the - "?%#*@$&'expletive!" Pool Table that the CUE happens to be sitting either Near Next To or ON so when trying to adjust the CUE the -"?$@%*#'expletive!" The Power or Strength gauge moves!!!??? Which All of the Above occurs and You Run Out of Time and Loose You Match Game whatever You want to call it?!!! It "!@$&#?%'*!" Expletive causes you to Lose get Frustrated Disappointment etc..!!! But other than that, that's the only thing that causes me to like it only somewhat?!!!???! I'm in hopes that that will and can be rectified! Thank You sincerely VM P.S. Also, when I'm playing on my i-Phone, it's not only the power gauge that gets in the way while I'm trying to position the cue to take a shoot - Its the lamp and the other options that cause difficulty while trying to concentrate in taking the shoot while time is elapsing!!! Would you or Will you redesign this problem due to that I do like playing the game but its not enjoyable!!! It's frustrating and disappointing!!! Well Thank You for your Concern.
Okay, but room to grow
by SeriouslyOrange on 2014/05/07 23:25
It's is a fun video game simulation of 8-ball. Overall the game play is fun and somewhat realistic, but don't be over optimistic. It's fair to say that the computer dose not have a refined consistently smooth stroke. It would be a nice addition to have greater control over cue ball action when purchasing a different cue stick :) ie.. More English, longer aim lines or additional subsequent cue ball contact points after object ball collision. The chatting and betting aspects are fun, too. Wish there was a leader board, side betting and rewards for a break and run- even a coin flip for the break. Why not even allow players to bet coin on the overall outcome of a tournament regardless of their involvement? It would be fun to add a "jump-shot" element to the game too. Overall I gave 3 stars. For a fun game that offers easy fun casual competition with friends you can't go wrong. The in app purchases are exceptionally over priced in my opinion. Sure would be fun to use the app cash and coins in other betting games, as well as offer a pay out in real cash should someone choose to stop playing the app. The game is not consistent enough - internet connection and respectability of shots- to spend money on in app coins or cash. ( 9-ball, one pocket or 14.1 addition please! )
Best Pool Game Out, But !!! Why won't fix it ??
by iPhone Nerd 2 on 2015/06/05 07:43
All you folks who are pool lovers, this is a very good game. Because as all the previous players who wrote how the game works and the realistic action will illustrate. Almost all what they have said is --- true. I love the action ---- until the game freezes. I then lose my turn, my money , Oh ! say 70,000 pool points. Yes, that's right. What if that happened to you ? How would you feel ? I have paid for 70,000 pool coins and each weekend they give as an bonus another FREE 70,000 pool coins. Well I reported this to Apple aps , they told me to contact TapJoy. I did and no change, no pool coins. When I first started playing , thousands of pool coins lost in a similar situation. So am I a fool for still playing this game ? Maybe, but there is still not another pool game out there that has has the addictive action of this game. I hoping that someone with enough authority at TapJoy will read this and correct the situation. Both for me and the real millions of players of TapJoy's ( MiniClip ) 8 Ball Pool. I hope the name MiniClip doesn't mean " this little game will cheat just a little. " So someone is stealing. There used to be a strip bar called " Cheetah ( the Cat ) but the girls said the boss said it was his " Cheated the love starved men got cheated.
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
Glitches, cheating, and hacking.
by CalebImSoMetal on 2016/01/14 08:06
Runs smoothly, in all offline playing situations except sometimes the cue ball will scratch on you magically for no reason even if there is clearly no way for it to scratch. Online features are sketchy. Dont play all or nothing or all in matches where you can either lose your coins or double them because there is an unprecedented glitch where whether you win or lose you still lose all your coins. So unless you appreciate 2 to 1 odds in favor of you losing the entirety of your coin stash, i suggest you steer clear of this game mode. ALSO: i have recently been hacked. I used my facebook account to link the game to me as to save my progress across devices and somehow i was hacked. 3 times consecutively without fail i have been hacked out of 2nd tier tournaments. It kicks me and my opponent to the tourney branch screen where you see whom is playing whom and then instead of me or my opponent being ushered into the next round, some random out of place profile named "jose" is advanced into the next stage while me and my fair opponent lose our coins. So dont play this game competitively, play it casually. Any competitive minded individuals would keep away from try-harding this app because stupid, childish people with no lives enjoy hacking other players on a little mobile-phone game which is ridiculous and disgusting.
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
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!
Bad game! Needs to be fixed!!
by lil j-wayne on 2014/06/21 19:01
This is the most worst game I've ever played in my life!! When I first got this game it was so cool. me an all my cousins used to play against each other on here. Yet now, I don't even play this game but probly once every month. Every single time I would try to play this game, I would go to play a regular game, and when it would come my turn to shoot I would shoot the ball and make the shot now!, then it'd say "waiting on server response" or either "waiting on players response" then it would either take my shot from me and say I ran out of time an give the other person ball in hand, or either the game would just all of a sudden stop an say connecting (after I've already started a game an put in my money) and go back to the home screen! So basically there's no point in this game! It takes you're money on the game either way by either giving the other player ball in hand on almost every shot you've done or it would start a game, then go back to the home screen and take your money! I hate this game now! It used to not do this, but I mean it's been doing this for a really long time so that's why I figured I would write a review. I figured after a while of doing this the game makers or whoever would get around to fixing it... But no it's actually been doing this for a loooooonnnggg timmee!
Great game, best pool app in the store
by staple11 on 2015/04/07 06:35
I use to play this on their website in the early 2000's and im happy they made an application of it. The gameplay is smooth, accurate, and vivid. The graphics are pretty good too. I give it five stars, however i do have some minor complaints ... One thing that bothers me about this game is how easy it is with the aim assist lines, as i usually will beat my opponent my first or second turn, so long as theres a decent shot every time, otherwise he'll beat me on his first or second try. What im trying to say is its too easy. Regardless of the elementary difficult level, i still love the game. Another problem i have is the obvious and immoral plot by miniclip to make more money with in app purchases and minigames. Basically, you cant get any of the good items unless you pay cash. This is a very minor complaint as every app nowadays does the same thing. The game is good, and definitely the best attempt at a pool game. I wish they made more ways to make some cash cuz if you end up losing your money its pretty difficult to make your way back up to some bank.
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.
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.
ONE OF THE BEST GAMES TO HAVE
by Dopey305hialeahboy on 2016/06/20 01:31
If you like pool and have played online pool games you're going to enjoy this game. This game reminds of of back when I used to play yahoo pool on my desktop. I like how you can buy cool pool sticks and upgrade and don't necessarily have to spend any money to play. THE GAME IS FREE ! You can have fun and work your way to the top leveling up and challenging friends from Facebook. I wish they would give you extra XP points for completing achievements and made it easier to invite friends to play by having some sort of better notification or at least be able to see who is playing online from your friends list . I introduced my girlfriend to the game and now she's more addicted than me!! She even spent cash to buy coins in the game to play and now she's earned more coins than I have in one day that I've done in about a month playing. She never even knew how to play pool in real life before getting the game! Lol ! Now that's all she's been playing. I got 500 coins for inviting her to try the game thru FB. Anyway I gotta go earn some more coins ! Download the game and try it !
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
It's a four star app!
by deisel1016 on 2013/05/06 14:40
I only give an app five stars if it doesn't leave me wanting more features. This game does just that. It's not the in app purchases that plague almost every new app and game that hits the App Store nowadays, no it's the fact that you can't yet compete in a tournament. Since the games launch we've seen the little "COMING SOON" up in the right hand corner and still we have no other option but for a single game competition which I will admit,I was content with for the last couple months but at this point I'm ready for more. Don't gets wrong, Im actually a big fan of the game and the developers and I'm sure they're going to roll out the tournament feature and they're probably just perfecting it so we're not left upset and annoyed with bugs and issues as happens when game developers push out updates before they're ready to be added,that being said-Please let us compete on a broader scale so we can enjoy this awesome game on a higher level. It has the potential to be a five star app. But in my opinion,until they add the tourney feature it will forever stay four star material,which is still...just really good. Not great!
Better than expected
by CeaWubWub on 2014/01/21 23:22
I was just looking for a game to pass like 2 minutes and thought I would delete shortly thereafter, however, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the game was stupendously enjoyable. Not only is it the game of pool, but you get to okay against other people, not just AI. That alone doesn't make it great, but what does... Is the progression system. As you play, you level up, and from that you gain access to level-exclusive content, which I enjoy working towards. Another thing that I was happily surprised by what that you could buy different cues, and there are a lot of choices and some pretty neat ones at that. The game does offer in app purchases but is not at all necessary to win or to progress, which wins my heart, as I hate games that force me to buy their fake currency to pass on to further stages, levels, etc. In this game, it is just something to consider if you want to get a fancy cue or to get some power-ups. But like I said, not at all necessary. If you enjoy pool even slightly, and like to progress as a single character, this game is really worth the go.

IOS UPDATE CAUSES CRASHES (late May17)
by Smoochie-slappy on 2017/05/29 04:07
I love this game but, upon just updating my IOS...8ball crashes several times each game thus causing me to lose games. I will not play again until an update is issued to remedy these problems. PLEASE FIX THIS!
Good app
by Sds25252525 on 2017/05/29 03:52
The game part of it is very nice , but they try too hard to make you buy , daily spins used to pay good , but not any more . It shows a lots of greed.

"Recharging" a cue stick?
by PeoplePlanter on 2017/05/29 01:37
Decent game, but the fact that you require cue sticks to be recharged is a deal breaker. What you require to recharge a cue stick is a completely separate 1 star review in itself.

This is a terrible, pathetic game when the higher rated player makes ridiculous shots to win over and over again. Glad that I've never been tempted to throw away money here.

Please update app to not glitch in game play or spins. Cues shouldn't be so costly. Give better selection of affordable cues. Make more free cues..

Doesn't fairly give you a turn to break
by Lbmolly on 2017/05/28 19:50
Would have given 5 stars, but lately it's never let me break at all. So 2 stars considering it cost me 60 million in opponents getting to break first and winning on the break 6-7 times in a row just to rub it in. I have normally enjoyed this game, but lately it cheats on being fair about who gets to break. Since it's fairly easy to win on the break in 9 ball, it's a big deal when you bet 10 million and don't get to break for 7 games. When they finally let you break your matched up with someone playing for considerably less like 2.5 million instead. Very unfair, poorly designed in that sense.

8ball is awful
by Keyversmith on 2017/05/28 18:45
This game could be awesome but it is not. If you do not spend money you will not win. Sooner or later you will lose everything. This game should just let us play and quit manipulating who wins. A very unsatisfied customer.

UNFAIR u will hate this game in long run -clearly RIGGED
by Frustratingfkngame on 2017/05/28 07:37
This game is totally frustrating and you will end up hating due to how unfair it is.... Will keep you thinking on your feet at advanced levels and can be fun if it wasn't for how scandalous it is. My HUGE gripe is at times ( suspecting more than not) you definitely will encounter robot/computer players that you can't beat to save your life. Also the mysterious scratches on perfect shots and bogus shot placement (cue ball leaves etc) because these dorks at Miniclip totally unfairly control your destiny in this game .... I personally don't pay to play and have noticed clearly that the game will not allow me to advance anymore like it used to by pairing me up with robot players that I can't beat no matter what I do and I'm a fairly advanced player and grew up playing REAL pool (have advanced to high levels over 7 million coins) without paying before only to lose it all rather quickly and certainly faster than winning the coins due to the rigged robot players.:( Can only imagine paying to play this unfair game how quickly you would go through your paid for coins and spending a lot of money on here if you are a frequent player ? Guess to sum it up ok game that is challenging and fun to play but can also be totally frustrating and completely unfairly rigged .....
Choice of challenge
by Samberella on 2017/05/28 06:24
I think we should be able to challenge people to nine ball as well as 8 ball
Designers don't understand pool
by BigGing0 on 2017/05/28 04:26
This game has a lot of good features. Unfortunately, they didn't bring in anyone that understands geometry and physics for programming. I'm a level 6 APA shooter and have had success in this game only because I've learned to adapt to the incorrect angles. Not off the initial contact, but the way the cue ball comes off of the rail and the object ball. The shot clocks seems to change depending on your opponents internet connection, which is very frustrating. This game could be great if the designers and programmers understood pool a little better.

Upgrades
by Loyalty97 on 2017/05/28 03:49
I think it would be better if people are able to type chat vs pre made chats like "well played" or "nice try"........ also when your waiting to play a friend online you should be able to view the game they are currently playing it's like a waiting area you can watch the game until it's your turn And why is it so hard to get coins and cues it really makes you not want to play it I sometimes rather play someone on iMessage instead of this app 😒

Refunded Purchase.
by Lewis Waldeisen on 2017/05/28 00:32
I cannot find anyway to contact the ap developer other than here. I mistakenly purchased 2 million coins instead of 20,000 coins. My bank has refunded the money to my account so please take back the 2 million coins. Thank You.
Rigged
by Game is certainly rigged on 2017/05/27 22:53
First off, if you cant tell the daily spins are rigged so you never land on a high prize, you're exactly who they market the game to. After playing for awhile you'll notice the balls ending up in scratch positions. No im not a newbie I play real pool and know how the game works. They coded this game to where no matter what you do, use english, low power etc, you scratch. I've played over 5 thousand games and held a 61.1 win percentage for awhile im not a noobie. I shoot the same shot when i break and sometimes the balls dont even move.. the programmers coded it so if you do a high power shot, no matter what english u use the cue ball makes a b line right for the pocket and changes speeds. I got up to the 8 ball on a 60k tournament. The game wouldn't let me choose a pocket to shoot it in so my time ran out. Game is clearly rigged.

STUPIDEST GAME EVER!! This game blows!! The matching system either matches me against a 30+ leveled player or a CPU player with no name to just get destroyed without an opportunity to even shoot...them they want me to buy cues, money or VIP points....what a shame and it has been uninstalled! 😡

by LDenton on 2017/05/27 15:11
It's a nice game but if you know how to play real pool then you will find many discrepancies between this and real pool but it's not a bad game the developers should have just done more research before the release
Good game

Charging without permission!
by Mutnik on 2017/05/27 14:44
I just got an apple receipt, saying I authorized payments which I did NOT! I have spent some money on this game recently but not in the last week!!! Also, why is it pairing me (level 50 49% win rate) with people on level 104+ with a 60% win rate!!!???? You should pair people based on the same win ratio/level! It's so rigged it's not funny. I'm supposed to get 500 coins for watching videos but it's only letting me have 15 now wth. And Once you buy coins it's almost impossible to win games. They want you to constantly buy, buy, buy. I never do in app purchases, but for some reason I'm addicted to this game and have spent quite a bit of money on it. Think I'm going to delete it soon if something doesn't change. If you pay for a golden spin you land on 3,000 or at most 3,500 (the least amount on the spin) and the regular daily spin you're lucky to get 500!!!! I've played people on level 21 that have won over 4million and only played 400 games. It's not possible! The makers of the game have made it so you can not contact them, so we have to leave our grievances here. Hopefully they start reading some of their reviews and do something!!!!

Surprise box scam
by Fixurcrap on 2017/05/27 12:36
I guess I don't have to explain boxes are rigged for you to just get enough pieces then to get the rarest cues you then keep getting the same pieces it should be so you don't get repeated ones and if you inquire about it they just ignore you. Don't spend your money on this game

Lame
by jedishark79 on 2017/05/27 10:23
If you like to be annoyed and feel cheated this is the app for you. It seems as though 95% of the shots scratch, (white ball in the pocket). It's as though the programmers were a little too lazy to make the cue ball go anywhere besides into a pocket. I know how to play pool in the real world and know that most of the cue balls that spin, wiggle, and slope their way into a pocket in this game would not do so in reality. Great job guys! You almost had a good game.
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.
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!
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
Mrs.
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!
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.
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.
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
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!
Fun, but has issues
by 289v8 on 2014/07/25 23:45
This game is a lot of fun, and it's cool to play live with people from all over the globe. But I find a few things to be very problematic. The main one is server snafus. Several times I've been in a match where the opponent is shooting and we get a message to wait on the server. Then suddenly I get the message the opponent has won, and often I've not even had my turn. The only saving grace was my wager was reasonable and thankfully I hadn't bet a large sum. Other times I've been in the middle of my shot and the same thing happens and I'm told I ran out of time. I know it's not my internet connection because this has happened regardless of where I'm connected and we are not experiencing connectivity issues. Also, some weird things like being able to make a long distance shot with a severe cut with ease, which is a very very hard shot in real billiards. Finally, no ability to jump an opponent's ball reduces shot options. This is a legitimate shot in most games. Update: I have tired of this game for one reason - the majority of the competitors are kind of douchy. Either they taunt you all during the match, or they are cowards who won't rematch after winning. In real billiards there is a protocol like golf where you are quiet when your opponent is shooting. And unless you are playing a pay table where you give up the table when you lose you rematch. Think I will dump this app. The people online kind of ruined it.
GREAT GAME, I LOVE IT!
by lbdonp on 2014/12/09 02:48
It's a great game if you like playing pool. it's pretty realistic with the way the cue ball slides in action. You get to play with people from all over the world in real time which is awesome because you can see the flag of their Country, however.. it only shows the flag and doesn't say the Country so alot of times I don't always know what Country some of the flags are from. Developers, it would be great if you put the name of the country under the flag that way this game could be a learning experience in more ways than one. Yes, I have gripes (lol) like there was a glitch and I lost my semi pro status and all my coins once and had to start over as a guest again.. almost 50k in coin I lost too and they never did return my email about it but oh well, I'll just stay in the free section and wont make any purchases until the customer service becomes better. sometimes the connection is slow and I'll end up losing a game because of it, but I've won a lot of games because of the other persons connection issues, so atleast I know it's not just me. Other than that, I play this game daily and I've never been one to play games but I love pool and this app blows away any other pool games out there that I've downloaded... so far. It's a great game and a lot of fun and highly recommended.
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.

I like it. I play it often. Not much to complain about the game other then the constant reigning to spend money on pretend pool equipment. I can see why any app that is popular that is making money from the adds they sell and at great profit yet they need to get all they can. And that is what a lot of app do, but when is it enough? Proffers from add space sales is a lot of money. Yet they still want more. When is it enough? My old lady and I put a belly dance show on once a month and when we started 10 years ago we decided not to charge the customer or the dancer. We are doing it for the love of it. (Well she loves it and I love her so between you and I I love it too) Just ask her she will tell you I am. 😈 Think about it where would you go to play a game , to a place that is grinding you at every turn. I delete apps like that. Me if I was the CEOs of this game company I would not charge the gamers. But the adds sales are just doing business, the gamer on the other hand is everybody's bred and butter. And you don't have to charge them so a no charge policy would bring players by the millions. And then the amount of people that are seeing the add is 10 fold as to what the competitors can retain as they clean out you pocket book. But sadly money makes the world go round.
Love it!
by ReveryBass3 on 2014/10/15 13:47
Reviewed this game a few weeks ago, and most of what I posted below still stands. However, since updating the OS on my phone, it seems I have to delete and reinstall this game almost every time I try to play it. It opens up like normal, but after choosing 1 on 1 or tournament, there are no options to choose a game location. Also, mini games don't work right, there is only a blank slot machine there, no pictures or info on the wheel and no coin values anywhere. It's like the game can't find the files it needs to reference in order to run properly. It's a pain, and I'm getting close to just deleting it and NOT reinstalling it. My original review is below: Great game overall, barring the occasional connection issue. Matchmaking for some games and tournaments can sometimes be skewed, I've found myself as a lvl 16 in a tournament with all other players at lvl 50 or higher... Aside from that though, it's a great pastime. The 25 free coins per hour and the daily free spin are enough to keep you playing even after losing everything, without having to spend real money unless you want to. I do buy spins or coins every now and then though to support the developers, in hopes they will either add a 9 ball game to this app or create a separate 9 ball app on the same game engine.
Great game but it has some problems
by burke0315 on 2014/05/19 02:03
This is great pool game. I find it a lot like real pool and that isn't easy to find. I like the tournament games but I have discovered that the best way to level up without losing a bunch is to play the 1 on 1 games. The tournament games are tough because they do a pretty good job of matching you up against very good players. The 1 on 1 games aren't easy either but they are more fair because they also do a pretty good job of matching you up against people of your same skills but still enough of a challenge that you can get better. The one bug I have discovered that I absolutely hate is when the game suddenly freezes. There is always a little message that pops on the bottom right hand corner says waiting for server response, please wait. So I wait and cringe because I know that all that hard work that I did to try and that game will just go down the drain and I can't get it back. Sure enough the game quits automatically and I have just lost 25 coins or however much coins I spent to play the one on one game. I do not quit myself the game quits itself if that makes any sense. This does not happen every time the game freezes but enough that it caused me to write this review and hope that it gets fixed. I hate losing all those coins after working so hard to get double the amount that I spent.
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.
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.
8 Ball Mini-clip Pool
by Crooked Politician on 2014/09/27 14:32
I like this game. But I hate the cheaters. They want to win every game and can't play the game as it was meant to be as a game of fun where everyone can enjoy themselves win or lose. So, since lots of people will do anything to win a few chips, which shows just how cheap they are... Management should monitor the games more often and give us a way to report these people. It ruins the game for many who just want to play for the enjoyment of this great game Miniclip has created for us all. It was made to play where all are equal and the longer you play the more skilled you become! I love playing where the game is on a fair and equal opportunity for all!! Please if you are someone who is cheating...don't play here go somewhere else! Let us enjoy the game as the creators meant for it to be. I thank the people who put it all together for us and please respect the Players and the owners of this web site and keep it enjoyable for everyone. I really love playing here and want each and everyone to have a fair and equal playing field. If the shoe fits were it, you know who I am speaking to. Again thank you Mini-clip for the enjoyment and hours of fun you have given us, please bar for life these who abuse other players. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!
🎱🎱 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! 🤘🏻😎🎱
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.
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
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!!
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
Maybe you're not as good as you think...
by Br'er Bill on 2014/09/09 16:57
Connection issues I agree but all the soreheads whining about the game being rigged, maybe you just stink. Peruse the APA rules for 8-ball and ball in hand is proper on any scratch or when no ball contacts anything after cue strikes object. Table remains open after break shot regardless of what balls are potted. However, in my league a scratch on the 8-ball loses. The physics are pretty good and those that don't think so should get off the couch and go try some real pool. Shots that seem impossible in real pool don't give you guidelines to show where both balls are going so yes, your likely hood of making them on a game increases. I play as a guest, level 32, and I'm not computer generated. I've run the table both on game and a real table, it's not impossible with good shot selection and a little luck. I've been skunked by players with a single digit level, see previous sentence. If you think buying coins a rip off then don't buy them, I don't, earn them. "I got beat by a level 3, I got overmatched by a higher level player, I don't know he to shoot without scratching..." Oh please people, it's just a game and more fair than you sour grapes give it credit.
Too sloppy
by Chaoticus6754 on 2014/06/21 03:00
I enjoy playing this game, it has realistic pool game play, fun side games, and cool cues, along with the ability to play different tournaments. There are several frustrating issues, however, such as allowing for "slop" game play, allowing players to continue shooting after making a shot that was made out of pure luck. I can understand wanting the game to appeal to players of all levels of play, but the game already provides a significant source of help with the "guideline" they've included. The guideline shows the player exactly where the cue ball is going to strike the object ball, as well as the angle both the object ball, and cue ball are going to take after the initial contact. Furthermore, if a player desires to play a more realistic game of pool, in which players have to "call their shots," they have to pay through the nose to get that opportunity. The "win percentage" stat is therefore useless, because a player loses percentage after every failed match more or less. How is it then that a player can use this information, if players win by getting lucky? Either make it so that "slop" play is no longer allowed, or bring the prices of the more difficult matches down significantly for the players that want more of a challenge, and want not to be cheated out of a hard fought win.
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.
Help!
by Makennac14 on 2015/08/10 18:54
It's a really great and fun game but.. I've been wanting to okay for awhile now and I've had this game since last year and never had a problem but like 5 weeks ago it logged me out from Facebook on the game so I press "log in with Facebook" and it says "8 pool ball would like to access your friends and profile" blah blah blah, so I press okay. Then it says go to setting > Facebook to allow 8 pool ball to log in with Facebook to I got to my settings on my phone and I go to Facebook and it don't have 8 pool ball on thee in my Facebook setting so I can't allow access to it. So I go to 8 pool ball in my iPhone settings and it don't have Facebook under there so I can't allow it to there either but like I said 5 weeks ago my uncle (also plays this and his wife) and he told my to delete the app and change my Facebook password and then he also said some other things to do but I asked him the other day what all did he do and he said he can't remember, so that day it worked fine and then the other day it logged me out again and then all that about it not showing in my setting is what I need help on... So please take the time to read this. I really need help 😩
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!!!
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.
A so, so game.

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.
Okay
by Judodad3babies on 2015/08/19 15:21
The game is fun thats for sure. But like ive read on other reviews, there are some issues. I do believe that once you have gained a certain amount of coins the game starts acting funny like when you shoot a ball in one direction and it happens to go slightly off or the slow connection notification meanwhile my internet service and wifi are great, performing same breaks but getting different results while using the same cue or times when you gently hit the softly into the pocket and it sits on the ledge as if it was defying gravity (if this was reality ofcourse) also like when the same force is used on the same or similar situations yet the speed of the ball differs. In order to fully enjoy this game i believe one would have to purchase the paid for cues, then you would be doing ridicilous and unrealistic shots too. As for the chat, it should be open so you can type in as you please. Other games have open chat that operate like text messages. And last but not least, for sure the game has computer controlled profiles to keep people from exceding certain limits without paying for items. In all the game is fun and good to pass time with. I would rate 2.5 stars but thats not an option. God bless and Jesus our Lord and Saviour loves you as you are.
Accurate game play BUT....
by Jhandi Doe on 2015/09/30 21:03
This is a very fun game to play and if I was basing a review on a first impressions, I would give it 5 stars. Would be a great app to play if you don't get too involved in the game play. But, after a couple months of playing, I'm considering deleting. First and foremost, the app has MAJOR NETWORK ISSUES. I will be right in the middle of a game and the app will restart, act like your last shot didn't even happen stating "waiting on opponents response" or "connection slow" when I've got 4 bars LTE, or give an automatic win to your opponent! It's enough to make you lose your s*it! Or possibly, and I really hope this isn't the case, but a lot of people have been saying the app is "rigged". Meaning, the more and more you play and pay for things, the more "issues" arise. I can vouch for that in a way as when I first started playing this app, there were ZERO "network issues" and I would be getting 5,6 or even 7 game win streaks. Now that these "network issues" keep popping up, it's hard to even complete a tournament without the app kicking you out of the tournament and returning to app's home screen. Like I stated before, seriously considering deleting due to these shady issues. The app itself is fun and addicting enough without this BS!
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. 😖
Seriously?!
by DiamondLover1738 on 2015/09/15 01:15
This game is good like other people said, but then you start losing. Some people might say you're just bad a playing but they're wrong.I have a few concerns. I was just going to play the 100,000 game a few minutes ago, I've just payed 50,000 coins when a ad comes up. I exit it out when all of a sudden I'm back on the homepage and most of my money is gone! What's up with that? Then when I JUST started another game it said connection is slow please wait, so I did. 10 seconds later the other player was hitting in the black ball! Is there something wrong with this game? That's not all though, when I challenged my cousin and started playing it said once again, connection is slow please wait. I was just waiting when my cousin said that's a good shot, I was like what? Then when I looked at my screen it was replaying what had just happened a few moments ago. Another time was when I was playing then the game started to glitch and soon I ran out of time! I tried to tap and move the pool stick but it wouldn't move. Please fix and I'll give 5 stars. Another thing is you should put back on 500 instead of 200, AND PLEASE! You should make people be able to talk on here. Not the chat bubbles but where you could like write to each other. It would be interesting and fun!
Humble Servant
by Von Meister AH on 2014/03/10 08:50
When playing this game of Billiards on my i-Phone, it is extremely annoying that when you are trying to shoot and the game is not letting you respond or States... Please wait, waiting for server to respond or opponent. Also the power templet gauge that allows You to control the Strength in which you desire to shoot the cue ball is on the - "?%#*@$&'expletive!" Pool Table that the CUE happens to be sitting either Near Next To or ON so when trying to adjust the CUE the -"?$@%*#'expletive!" The Power or Strength gauge moves!!!??? Which All of the Above occurs and You Run Out of Time and Loose You Match Game whatever You want to call it?!!! It "!@$&#?%'*!" Expletive causes you to Lose get Frustrated Disappointment etc..!!! But other than that, that's the only thing that causes me to like it only somewhat?!!!???! I'm in hopes that that will and can be rectified! Thank You sincerely VM P.S. Also, when I'm playing on my i-Phone, it's not only the power gauge that gets in the way while I'm trying to position the cue to take a shoot - Its the lamp and the other options that cause difficulty while trying to concentrate in taking the shoot while time is elapsing!!! Would you or Will you redesign this problem due to that I do like playing the game but its not enjoyable!!! It's frustrating and disappointing!!! Well Thank You for your Concern.
Okay, but room to grow
by SeriouslyOrange on 2014/05/07 23:25
It's is a fun video game simulation of 8-ball. Overall the game play is fun and somewhat realistic, but don't be over optimistic. It's fair to say that the computer dose not have a refined consistently smooth stroke. It would be a nice addition to have greater control over cue ball action when purchasing a different cue stick :) ie.. More English, longer aim lines or additional subsequent cue ball contact points after object ball collision. The chatting and betting aspects are fun, too. Wish there was a leader board, side betting and rewards for a break and run- even a coin flip for the break. Why not even allow players to bet coin on the overall outcome of a tournament regardless of their involvement? It would be fun to add a "jump-shot" element to the game too. Overall I gave 3 stars. For a fun game that offers easy fun casual competition with friends you can't go wrong. The in app purchases are exceptionally over priced in my opinion. Sure would be fun to use the app cash and coins in other betting games, as well as offer a pay out in real cash should someone choose to stop playing the app. The game is not consistent enough - internet connection and respectability of shots- to spend money on in app coins or cash. ( 9-ball, one pocket or 14.1 addition please! )
Best Pool Game Out, But !!! Why won't fix it ??
by iPhone Nerd 2 on 2015/06/05 07:43
All you folks who are pool lovers, this is a very good game. Because as all the previous players who wrote how the game works and the realistic action will illustrate. Almost all what they have said is --- true. I love the action ---- until the game freezes. I then lose my turn, my money , Oh ! say 70,000 pool points. Yes, that's right. What if that happened to you ? How would you feel ? I have paid for 70,000 pool coins and each weekend they give as an bonus another FREE 70,000 pool coins. Well I reported this to Apple aps , they told me to contact TapJoy. I did and no change, no pool coins. When I first started playing , thousands of pool coins lost in a similar situation. So am I a fool for still playing this game ? Maybe, but there is still not another pool game out there that has has the addictive action of this game. I hoping that someone with enough authority at TapJoy will read this and correct the situation. Both for me and the real millions of players of TapJoy's ( MiniClip ) 8 Ball Pool. I hope the name MiniClip doesn't mean " this little game will cheat just a little. " So someone is stealing. There used to be a strip bar called " Cheetah ( the Cat ) but the girls said the boss said it was his " Cheated the love starved men got cheated.
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
Glitches, cheating, and hacking.
by CalebImSoMetal on 2016/01/14 08:06
Runs smoothly, in all offline playing situations except sometimes the cue ball will scratch on you magically for no reason even if there is clearly no way for it to scratch. Online features are sketchy. Dont play all or nothing or all in matches where you can either lose your coins or double them because there is an unprecedented glitch where whether you win or lose you still lose all your coins. So unless you appreciate 2 to 1 odds in favor of you losing the entirety of your coin stash, i suggest you steer clear of this game mode. ALSO: i have recently been hacked. I used my facebook account to link the game to me as to save my progress across devices and somehow i was hacked. 3 times consecutively without fail i have been hacked out of 2nd tier tournaments. It kicks me and my opponent to the tourney branch screen where you see whom is playing whom and then instead of me or my opponent being ushered into the next round, some random out of place profile named "jose" is advanced into the next stage while me and my fair opponent lose our coins. So dont play this game competitively, play it casually. Any competitive minded individuals would keep away from try-harding this app because stupid, childish people with no lives enjoy hacking other players on a little mobile-phone game which is ridiculous and disgusting.
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
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!
Bad game! Needs to be fixed!!
by lil j-wayne on 2014/06/21 19:01
This is the most worst game I've ever played in my life!! When I first got this game it was so cool. me an all my cousins used to play against each other on here. Yet now, I don't even play this game but probly once every month. Every single time I would try to play this game, I would go to play a regular game, and when it would come my turn to shoot I would shoot the ball and make the shot now!, then it'd say "waiting on server response" or either "waiting on players response" then it would either take my shot from me and say I ran out of time an give the other person ball in hand, or either the game would just all of a sudden stop an say connecting (after I've already started a game an put in my money) and go back to the home screen! So basically there's no point in this game! It takes you're money on the game either way by either giving the other player ball in hand on almost every shot you've done or it would start a game, then go back to the home screen and take your money! I hate this game now! It used to not do this, but I mean it's been doing this for a really long time so that's why I figured I would write a review. I figured after a while of doing this the game makers or whoever would get around to fixing it... But no it's actually been doing this for a loooooonnnggg timmee!
Great game, best pool app in the store
by staple11 on 2015/04/07 06:35
I use to play this on their website in the early 2000's and im happy they made an application of it. The gameplay is smooth, accurate, and vivid. The graphics are pretty good too. I give it five stars, however i do have some minor complaints ... One thing that bothers me about this game is how easy it is with the aim assist lines, as i usually will beat my opponent my first or second turn, so long as theres a decent shot every time, otherwise he'll beat me on his first or second try. What im trying to say is its too easy. Regardless of the elementary difficult level, i still love the game. Another problem i have is the obvious and immoral plot by miniclip to make more money with in app purchases and minigames. Basically, you cant get any of the good items unless you pay cash. This is a very minor complaint as every app nowadays does the same thing. The game is good, and definitely the best attempt at a pool game. I wish they made more ways to make some cash cuz if you end up losing your money its pretty difficult to make your way back up to some bank.
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.
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.
ONE OF THE BEST GAMES TO HAVE
by Dopey305hialeahboy on 2016/06/20 01:31
If you like pool and have played online pool games you're going to enjoy this game. This game reminds of of back when I used to play yahoo pool on my desktop. I like how you can buy cool pool sticks and upgrade and don't necessarily have to spend any money to play. THE GAME IS FREE ! You can have fun and work your way to the top leveling up and challenging friends from Facebook. I wish they would give you extra XP points for completing achievements and made it easier to invite friends to play by having some sort of better notification or at least be able to see who is playing online from your friends list . I introduced my girlfriend to the game and now she's more addicted than me!! She even spent cash to buy coins in the game to play and now she's earned more coins than I have in one day that I've done in about a month playing. She never even knew how to play pool in real life before getting the game! Lol ! Now that's all she's been playing. I got 500 coins for inviting her to try the game thru FB. Anyway I gotta go earn some more coins ! Download the game and try it !
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
It's a four star app!
by deisel1016 on 2013/05/06 14:40
I only give an app five stars if it doesn't leave me wanting more features. This game does just that. It's not the in app purchases that plague almost every new app and game that hits the App Store nowadays, no it's the fact that you can't yet compete in a tournament. Since the games launch we've seen the little "COMING SOON" up in the right hand corner and still we have no other option but for a single game competition which I will admit,I was content with for the last couple months but at this point I'm ready for more. Don't gets wrong, Im actually a big fan of the game and the developers and I'm sure they're going to roll out the tournament feature and they're probably just perfecting it so we're not left upset and annoyed with bugs and issues as happens when game developers push out updates before they're ready to be added,that being said-Please let us compete on a broader scale so we can enjoy this awesome game on a higher level. It has the potential to be a five star app. But in my opinion,until they add the tourney feature it will forever stay four star material,which is still...just really good. Not great!
Better than expected
by CeaWubWub on 2014/01/21 23:22
I was just looking for a game to pass like 2 minutes and thought I would delete shortly thereafter, however, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the game was stupendously enjoyable. Not only is it the game of pool, but you get to okay against other people, not just AI. That alone doesn't make it great, but what does... Is the progression system. As you play, you level up, and from that you gain access to level-exclusive content, which I enjoy working towards. Another thing that I was happily surprised by what that you could buy different cues, and there are a lot of choices and some pretty neat ones at that. The game does offer in app purchases but is not at all necessary to win or to progress, which wins my heart, as I hate games that force me to buy their fake currency to pass on to further stages, levels, etc. In this game, it is just something to consider if you want to get a fancy cue or to get some power-ups. But like I said, not at all necessary. If you enjoy pool even slightly, and like to progress as a single character, this game is really worth the go.
