Welcome to your fifth 8 Ball Pool Community Update! We’re here to bring you all the latest news from the game.

As usual, there’s lots to tell you about this month – here we go!

New tables and cues

We’ve just released some brand new tables and cues for you to customize your game even further! Check out the Elven and Insane frames, cloths and patterns in the Pool Shop, and take a good look at the brand new Amber and Silver cues! We’re looking forward to seeing some of these shiny new items in action 🙂

We’ve also been listening to your feedback and cue suggestions – and we have a few more cues coming to the Shop very very soon…

Big discounts in the Pool Shop

The Digitized cue is one of many that are now much cheaper!

The Digitized cue is one of 18 cues that are now much cheaper!

To mark the release of Pool Cash, we’ve made some big discounts on many items in the Pool Shop. A whopping eighteen cues are now cheaper than they were, with our current faves, the Camouflage and Digitized cues, getting a 70% discount! The Royal Blue, Test Tube, Blue Hope and Pharaoh cues are also around half-price. It’s the perfect time to upgrade your 8 Ball gear!

Talking of Pool Cash…

As you will have seen, the new currency – Pool Cash – is now live on the web. We’ve started everyone off with 5 Pool Cash, and you’ll soon have the opportunity to earn more Cash when you level up in the game. Look out for more news on that feature in the next Community Update!

For more information on Pool Cash, check out last month’s update.
