8 Ball Community Update, March 2014

Hey guys, we’re back again with more news on 8 Ball Pool’s recent updates. Lets jump right in!

Match three and win big!

Scratch & Win

Scratch & Win is a recent addition to 8 Ball Pool on Web, you may have seen it already if you play 8 Ball Pool on mobile. It’s been pretty popular so we decided to put it Web too!

It’s a scratch card mini-game, similar to lottery tickets. The aim is to match three of the same squares to win that prize, e.g. Match three 500 coin squares to win 500 coins. Not every card is a winner, but the prizes are bigger than Spin & Win.

Just like Spin & Win, the higher value prizes are rarer and harder to win. You can win scratches from Spin & Win and also buy them from the Pool Shop.

Sport Relief

As we’re sure you’ve noticed, there is a promotion for Sport Relief in 8 Ball Pool Web and Facebook. We’re donating a minimum of £2.10 from every purchase of the 7K coin bundle to the charity. The campaign is running in-game from March 19th to March 26th 2014!

Beat the Boss

We’ve been doing the Beat the Boss event for a while now and it’s becoming a pretty big deal! We’re now livestreaming the event on Twitch, so the world can see you win (or lose). We’ve even added a Beat the Boss award into the game so you can brag to your friends about how you’ve beaten Big Rob, the Miniclip CEO. Don’t forget, you have to be playing 8 Ball Pool on Miniclip.com. Check out the Beat the Boss FAQ for more info!

The last event was one of the most successful to date: Big Rob came out ahead with 7 wins and 4 losses. You players need to brush up on your skills before you take down the Boss! He had a few close matches: one of his opponents, Domingos, was on the black but fortunately missed his final shot, so Big Rob took the opportunity to clear the table and win the match. Better luck next time!

You can find us on Twitch. We will announce all new Beat the Boss events on the 8 Ball Pool Multiplayer Facebook page.

A few reminders…

One of the big updates to 8 Ball Pool Mobile was the All-In mode where you have the chance to double your coin balance – just so long as you win two consecutive games. Another point to be aware of is that the winnings are the total of the player with the lowest balance. For all information on the All-in mode check out last months blog post.

Cairo has also made a reappearance as the top tier 1 vs 1 room with a whopping 500,000 prize pot. Tokyo Warrior Hall is now the highest ranked tournament to enter, with an amazing 60,000 coin prize awaiting the victor!

Trickshot Masterclass #4

We’re working on the 4th edition of the Trickshot Masterclass compilation. We’ve received loads of trickshot videos from you guys already but keep on sending them in. We love watching them and might even share them on Facebook or Twitter.

The Tokyo Tournament, and a brand new Cairo 1v1 tier, are coming with the next mobile release.
