8 Ball Pool on iOS & Android updated!

Today we’re very excited to announce the release of a long-awaited update to 8 Ball Pool on iOS and Android, which brings the mobile versions of Pool up to versions 1.1 on iOS and 1.2 on Android. The update is the latest in a series of updates we’ve introduced since the game launched at the end of February.

We’ve got details on what’s in the update, as well as what you can look forward to in the future. Let’s get to it!

Spin & Win


The big new feature you’re going to notice is the introduction of “Spin & Win”, which replaces the Daily Bonus. You’ll get one free spin every day, and as the name suggests, you’re guaranteed to win something. Prizes range from varying amounts of Pool Coins (the highest number you can win is 50,000!) to an exclusive Lucky 8 Cue (which can’t be purchased) to powerups.

Should you wish to, you’re able to purchase extra spins of the Spin & Win wheel as in-app purchases.

Also introducing…

The update also has some other new features and bug fixes. As well as introducing Spin & Win, we’ve also added Twitter integration, so you’ll be able to share your Pool achievements with your followers.

On the bug fixes front, the issue where the cue ball could not be moved before breaking has been fixed (sorry about that!), and we’ve also made some general performance improvements which improve the efficiency with which the game runs on your device.

Tournaments coming next

Behind the scenes we’ve been working away on some improvements to our servers to ensure they’ll be able to handle running more matches, and with that work nearing completion, we can now confirm that the next big update to 8 Ball Pool on mobile is going to introduce tournaments to the game.

We’re still going to need some time to work out the technical side of this, so there’s no ETA yet, but if you like the 8 Ball Pool Facebook page or follow @8ballpool on Twitter we’ll make sure you’re kept up to date.

  4. May I make a few suggestions.

    1. You should be able to buy power-ups and spins with coins. Not just real cash. Make it expensive coin-wise if you want just make it so it doesn’t seem so money hungry.

    2. Cairo on Mobile

    3. Try to make is so you can view friends added on Android on PC as well. There is a gap there. As well as visa-versa.

    The tournament idea sounds awesome on mobile and I am highly anticipating and everything up to this point is really good. It could just use those improvements.

  5. like someone said it would be GREAT if we a additional option to buy the spins with the coins we earn in tournaments. So that people can choose whether to buy with miniclip credits or miniclip pool coins. you can what I mean..thanks.

  8. Hey the achievement that says (win a game without going over half power with the cue)? I’ve done this 6 times and tried it all different ways but mainly with the whole tip staying in the low power zone, why can’t I get the achievement? It’s getting annoying, but I love love love this game, I play on my iPod 4, my husband, and our adult children love it and we have gotten alllllll of our friends and family addicted to it lol. But anywho can someone tell me what I’m doing wrong? Or if it’s a glitch? Thank You, Aimee (OH)

  9. I used to LOVE this game, however, now I find myself extremely frustrated after the new update left me unable to challenge my favorite player! We’ve played together at least once every day since the app was released. But he has an iphone and I am an android user.. and now we are unable to challenge each other because of the different operating systems… I’m heartbroken 🙁 PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP!!!!!
