Welcome to your monthly update from the 8 Ball Pool team! Plenty to tell you about as always, with the release of new versions of 8 Ball for web, Facebook and mobile devices. If you missed the previous blog post, head here to find out about new features like calling pockets on elite tiers, and earning Pool Cash when you level up.

Here’s what we’ve got for you this month.

New entry levels for tournaments and 1 vs 1 play

We’ve made a tweak to the entry requirements for the various tiers in 8 Ball, on both web and mobile. What does this mean for you? Well, you can now enter – and win – higher-stake matches earlier in your Pool career than ever before 🙂 Game on!

Security measures

We’ve also made some big changes to the security of the game, which should go a long way to ensuring a fun and fair playing environment for all players.

Yes, our new security measures are VERY serious.

Essential fixes

We’ve made a few essential fixes to bugs that have been reported by users over the last few weeks. If you spot anything else strange happening on the table, feel free to report it to our Customer Support team who are always happy to help.

8 Ball trickshot masterclass

We’ve seen some truly great trickshots on YouTube in the last few weeks. So, we thought we’d put our favourites into one awesome video for you all to enjoy! We’ve got multi-railers, big-spinners, even a four-in-one shot – which one’s your favourite?

If you’ve got a trickshot to show off, email it to social at miniclip dot com – and maybe you’ll be appearing in our next trickshot collection!

You may have seen by now that we released a new version of 8 Ball on iPhone, Android and Kindle last week. If you haven’t updated yet… what are you waiting for? New features include a re-designed shop, nominating all pockets on higher tiers, and some minor bug fixes.

10 billion games played

We’ve just gone past the incredible landmark of 10 billion games played on 8 Ball Pool! That’s 10,000,000,000 games (it looks even more awesome written out like that). Thanks to all our players for helping us past this amazing achievement, and here’s to the next 10 billion games 🙂

8 Ball artwork

It’s been another great month for 8 Ball artwork – we’ve had some crazy creations once again. Incredible amounts of creativity, effort and patience are required to make these – thanks to everyone who sent them in!

Don’t forget, if you’ve got a cool pic yourself, you can send it to us on Facebook or tweet it to us.
