8 Ball Pool™ for Negative User Reviews

Good but unfairAt first I really liked this game and I couldn’t stop playing it but it has just came to me that you can vs a level 200 and still be level 8. Not only this gives a advantage to the level 200 it is a massive disadvantage to a lower level. The level 8 can still win but it is highly impossible for him/her to win. Another reason I gave this game a three star is how you can grab the ball in your have and move it to a point where you can just hit a ball in. If You get the ball your happy and it’s a freeby, but if this is the opponent and he/she keeps on getting the ball in his/her hand it get very annoying and frustrating. Not only they get a ball or two in they keep getting the ball in they hand. Overall I really like this game but I would fix having the ball in hand and moving it around, just a thought you can limit the movement of how far the ball can travel after you picked it up.Version: 4.4.2

DO NOT DOWNLOADMost rigged game I’ve ever played, been playing 8 ball pool for years and have realized how much of a scam this game is, they shove micro transactions down your throat, in the instance that you do purchase something, you will get on a good winning streak and then all of a sudden you wont be able to get any balls in, you miss ridiculously easy shots or get the cue ball in a pocket by magically curving the ball into the pocket. I’ve lost over 1,000,000 coins in one day playing multiple 100,000 games. Miniclip is a rigged company, do not fall for their micro transactions..Version: 4.5.2

PairingThe pairing system is actually rigged. It’s not fair on people who have just begun the game. Like I just started a new acc and I’m level 10 but I’m getting paired with people who are level 150 and I think the game needs a bit more focus on this. This happens in tournament as well. If there isn’t anyone that is on your level or close to your rank then don’t pair them with people who are hundreds of levels above. You need to fix this!!! cause I know a lot of people who I know have this same issue as well and I’m sure there’s many more out there. I’m deleting this game until I see that you’ve fixed this problem..Version: 5.4.5

Ok gameIt’s an ok game. Usually just play to pass time while sitting around. Game constantly wants you to buy in app purchases, not going to happen. Why would anyone spend their money to buy coins not like you’re winning real money. Your never going to win any decent amount of coins on your free daily spin because of course they immediately give you a chance to buy another spin. I sometimes wonder if they even give you the little bit of coins you do win because the game hides your total amount when you spin so unless you remember to check your total before you spin you never know if you get the actual coins. Game has some annoying glitches as well, like when you put a ball right in front of a pocket and the app moves the ball back away from it. This happens every game. Another annoying glitch is if you hit your last ball in and the 8 ball in on the same shot it gives the win to your opponent this should not be the case especially when your last ball goes in long before the 8 ball drops. Of course the main goal of this game is to make the developers loads of money so they are going to do everything in their power to get you to spend more money. Have never made any in app purchases and never will..Version: 3.12.0

The animations and the Pop ups gotta go.Bro so if you have played this game before you know that there are lots of little animations (coins falling on the screen, boxes opening, prizes, etc). There is no way to quick skip through these little animations and prize screens. It takes up a lot of time honestly, an option to quick tap through those animations and little screens would be great. I been playing for probably 10+ years bow and it’s always been the same. It’s 2023. Time to adjust that. ALSO. If I wanted to buy the extra packs and spend IRL money, I would. Having them pop up one after another when I dismiss one is ridiculous bro I’ve had up to 6 or 7. You close one, one pops up. You close it. Another pops up. Is that not what the message center and mailbox is for? I don’t want your spam to get even more money out of me that’s a good way to make people unhappy and push them away. I’ve had enough of the ads and micro transactions marketing where you’re forced to see it and realize you have to spend money to get past a certain point. And you do have to spend money if you want to get anything decent or worth having which is fine but to keep begging for me to spend more money is ridiculous. I’d pay if I could disable that crap forever I seriously would. No option tho..Version: 5.13.1

I would give this 0 stars if I couldThis game is a scam. I’ve lost so many coins for NO reason. Lies like ball didn’t hit any other balls even though it did. Other players making ridiculous shots that are impossible. This game is rigged they just want your money. I’ve lost over 1,000,000 coins because of these “glitches” I’m convinced they’re done purposely. Bunch of crooks, shame on the developers for cheating people who just want to play a game..Version: 5.14.0

Something just changedBeen enjoying this game for some time - it seemed to be based on simple physics, and was an excellent simulation of real world play. However, over the past couple of weeks there has been a clear change. Ball positions after a break are always ‘awkward’; shots that I or my opponents would have had difficulty making in the past are now made easily; i am suddenly pocketing white in almost every game… not my experience in the past… and it seems to be happening too frequently to opponents also. The game is much less enjoyable than it was a few days ago… why change a proven formula?.Version: 5.4.5

Too Many Cheaters in 2023I have been playing miniclip pool for over 10 years. i have never written a review for other apps. This review is mainly directed towards the developers. in the last several months the number of cheaters ( those where there seems to be no shot but apparently many balls go in …) has significantly increased to no end. i have reported those which i am sure of, but there seems to be no end to them. The gaming experience is completely ruined with all these cheaters. so sad..Version: 5.11.1

Where is version 4.2.2I love the game but after a week of play with friends, all of a sudden it tells me I need to update to play with friends. I use the update button, it takes me to the App Store and there is no update. I open the App Store on my phone and refresh the update page but no new update. My gf is running version 4.2.2 and i am running 4.2.0 Heeeeeelp.Version: 4.2.0

Could be great. Just be careful when you betThis could be such a great game! It has smooth graphics and a great interface. The only problem is the maker’s want you to spend money and lots of it! Don’t buy the extra’s. They are just not worth your hard earned cash. Where you have to be extra careful is on how much you bet. The default amount is very high and it’s easy to press the wrong amount and like myself on a number of occasion’s you will find yourself gambling half or all your saved coins. Plus the same applies to the carousel on where in the world you will play. Again the default place and amount that needs to be wagered there is always very high and easy to hit and open unintentionally so please be careful. There’s no way to stop proceedings once the match has been opened and your opposition chosen. Be very mindful of what you press in this game. You can lose all your virtual cash in an instant. This could be resolved in an instant with an ‘are you sure you wish to bet this amount’ question before the game starts. I doubt that will happen though. Addicted players will spend more every time. This could be a great game. But it’s not..Version: 4.6.0

Stop letting people cheat!!!!Just played a game with a person and without even aiming their shots were going on. Impossible shots that no one could make. They had a 25 win streak going…Fix your game this is ridiculous. Unique ID 263-705-787-9… You don’t allow people to report hackers and cheaters….Version: 5.10.4

Good game untilBeen playing this game for a few weeks and was really enjoying it until I went to get back into game and wasn’t loading, kept saying ‘Reconnecting your internet dropped out' my internet and wifi connection was still working. After about 12 hours it finally loaded but reset everything on me so had to start again. Not very happy about after I got to level 32 and over 1 million coins plus all my cues and rewards I achieved/received. I also paid for the pool pass so after all the hours spent playing 8 ball pool all to lose everything not very happy so I will be uninstalling this game now because I am not going to have this happen to me again..Version: 5.4.5

AnnoyingI love this game. But the biggest downfall and probably the only reason I’m deleting it is because it’s unfair that people can leave the screen for so long and enter back into the game. I shouldn’t have to sit there for any longer than 10 seconds while an opponent is writing a text. I feel that if they leave the screen for longer than 10 seconds they should automatically forfeit.Version: 4.7.7

AnnoyedThis game is irritating with its constant interruptions trying to sell you more and more. If you reject an offer s It should not come up again and again and again and again. Further to that there seems to some algorithms that are specifically designed to make it possible to succeed unless you move up to the higher levels betting millions of coins at a time. For example the white ball will often inexplicably travel at a slow pace right into a pocket when it should’ve stopped way before. Spin will apply erratically so you can seldom rely on it for ball placement. Obviously it is designed to make the developers money but trust me after playing this for a while you will get seriously annoyed..Version: 5.0.1

One more thingI hope we meet in person 😈😈😈.Version: 5.8.0

Hackers in Berlin and up tablesCan the devs please have a better anti hack program. I took a break from this game when the auto aim and trick shots hack surfaced. Especially in Berlin and Venice where the stakes are higher, and it’s been more than 6 months and the hackers are still in the game. I just want to play in high tables without hackers..Version: 5.8.1

Pool Pass Cue !!! Pay to win.At first a good game & enjoyable but then you get so far and no matter how you play you can’t win playing against someone who has got a pool pass cue 90% of the time, frustrating and annoying. Example playing someone rubbish but they’ve got a pool pass cue and you can clearly see the line of there shot and it’s a mile off to go in the pocket !! but i bet it goes in and yeah it goes in and then my line bang on the pocket but 90% it misses playing someone with a pool pass cue & my cues good before you ask. I have started to quit the game straight away when paired with someone with a pool pass cue because the odds are a lot in there favour & that’s how the game has got me. And now i don’t do that as it’s DELETED which is a shame as it is a good game and i enjoyed playing it. DEVS the Lucky wheel why have it now when all you win is 250 coins or the odd rare box if your very lucky, has that changed to if you got a pass cue then you’ll win ? Ok It’s FREE and they have got to make money but come on players are Deleting the game because of how it’s got. Eventually all the game will be is players with pass cues so developers take note. Bech43 UK LEEDS.Version: 5.2.3

8ball poolI had 1,750,000 coins that took months to win. I watched a “Free Rewards”movie to collect the 500 free coins for watching the movie. When the game added the 500 coins to my total it deducted 1,000,000 coins. After the movie my total became 750,500 coins. Miniclip told me it could be from recharging my cue or someone else playing on my account lost them. I said … I was not playing a game at all when coins disappeared… look at my total before the movie and after watching the movie. All I get from them is excuses and no return of my coins. This site is stealing money from its membership. Dennis.Version: 5.3.1

Honest ReviewI don’t understand why you would make a level 12 vs a level 365 that’s not fear I lost all my money. I really do think that the same level people should be versing each other and on top of that maybe tell us “hey there’s not going to be any of the lines to help you know where your going” instead of me thinking it a normal game so I put 2000k on it and then make me vs a level 365 are you crazy?? So what is even the point when you lose allll your money then needing to start all over again. My friends and I deleted the app just now because of it we had no idea what was happening. I would rate this game a 0 if I could we work go hard to win that money and all of it just gets taken away? That’s not right…… Please fix that because it is a ok game but that just ruins all the fun..Version: 5.6.2

Logics to lose youThis games makes you win and lose not based on the skills you use but based on the logics they use. It’s a trap to keep you playing. Trap might strike black to hole or behind another ball, we can record the game and test the accuracy how can a game depend..I did that and I can assure this is just a trap..Version: 4.7.7

Frustrating gameI’m a billiards player. Game is reasonably accurate until your close to finishing your rack. Then suddenly the cueball takes a hards turn and leaves you snookered. Happens consistently. Stay in low pay games. You’ll find the play is more accurate and fair. Don’t play the tournaments.horrible. More i play, the worse it gets! If you don’t pay, you don’t win. Garbage and frustration.Version: 5.2.7

All my cues are gone ?Do not spend money on this game ! I have spent a few bucks on the trash game and all my cues and VIP points have disappeared. To get a hold of customer service is non existent - do your self a favour get away from this app and go to o another pool game app PS Your were warned !.Version: 4.8.4

Battle pass is not executed properlyI gave two stars rather than one because I find it nice that this game kills pass times effectively. The game got boring after you collect desired cue (me) before the battle pass overhaul, since you have a chance to get up to 100% of your pool coins back. Therefore, if you bet small, technically you will never lose pool coins. Since the late 2019 battle pass bandwagon overhaul, they raised the price for boxes that makes it more expensive to collect cues. They are doing this to keep their player-base high through grinding. Battle pass would only be a good idea in this game as long as box prices did not rise and does not involve excessive grinding to earn pool cash, buy boxes, and collect desired cue..Version: 4.6.2

Annoying..The Developers are too greedy!This game is good in parts..but the developers are so greedy it’s obscene! The game it self is ok..but all the developers want is your money! The prices of the cues are ridiculous and they really don’t make much difference..The developers don’t give you much back for nothing..Then there is the notifications..every 5 minutes..someone you played months ago and you foolishly agreed to friend..from the other side of the world is playing..Like so what? And the wheel at the start is fiddled to give you the bare minimum..then they want another £1 to give you nothing much more! The developers must be millionaires 20 times over....and they just want more and more and more! Play the game by all means as it can be fun but don’t spend real money on it! And when you finish the game bang! Within a minute a tedious notification to get you back playing the game..as someone you will never meet is playing..This game drives me mad! But it’s too addictive to delete! And if you switch the notifications you lose benefits..Version: 4.0.1

Game is good but has serious bugsThe game is good and engaging. Worth long hours of playing. But the bugs are annoying. When I play bigger games like 1M in pot, the opponent wins without even starting the game. I have excellent wifi network and it not an issue. Definitely there is a bug and the opponents are utilising it. Giving low rating so that it gets the developer attention. Otherwise it easily deserves 5 star rating..Version: 5.14.5

Spin issue fixWhy spin stop on 250 coins only we spin daily but not rare box win or not get any big prize dail spin only get 250 coins please this !!.Version: 5.2.7

Gambling, unfair matchups, P2W, etcYou can’t play a games without a wager (not even for offline/practice games. Actively encourages going for highest stakes table you’re eligible for. Personally I’d like to play same table again and again instead of the autofocus to highest stakes. Currently there isn’t a way to limit how much in-game currency you can lose before taking a break, unlike other gambling apps. Matchups seem to be random. Should match players of similar strength instead. Aggressively tries to get you to spend money (and no way to prevent those pop ups). It’s clearly a pay to win game (better cue = higher chance of winning, unlock rewards faster and rewards worth more). Encourages using personal data for ads and rewards. By default ads are targeted and you get awarded for using a Facebook account (which helps advertisers track you) and you can’t use the gifts system without using a Facebook account, even though a social system exists (friends, clubs). Unable to mark in-game notifications as read unless you actually buy items using in-game currency or spend money. Can be addictive due to rewards. Personally I wouldn’t say this app is actually suitable for 4 year olds as the age rating suggests, due to the gambling nature of the game and the amount of advertising thrown in your face (both from popups and watching ads to increasing the amount of in-game currency you have)..Version: 5.13.2

8 Ball PoolDON’T spend real money on this game!!! I’ve been playing this game (safe, no big bets) for about 8yrs & took that long to get over $350 of notes & over 2 mill in coin balance. I never spent any real money on this game. Recently my account was hacked ( & only in this game !!) & most of all I’d earned was stolen. I now have $1500 in coin balance & $35 in notes & 8 Ball Pool (Miniclip) reply when I brought this to their attention was “there’s nothing we can do about that” & “you need to change your password”. My question to them was, “how often do I do that, every time I play the game?”. And then their reply was, “nothing we can do as per last email & no matter how many emails you send us the reply won’t change”. That literally was my second email to them & it was In response to their first. Pretty poor attitude & I can only assume they get sick of hearing this complaint. So my advice is DON’T spend any real money on this game because it could disappear in a flash & they don’t care !!!.Version: 5.5.6

Game is riggedBeen playing off and on for years, always thought it was pretty fair, maybe just myself to blame for silly mistakes, but then it got a bit too odd… I made ONE in game purchase and after that, it went all downhill. Started winning, got up to about 1.2M in coins, then that tapered off really quick. Started with a 67%+ win rate and had a streak of about 10+ losses, all by a sliver (ex. Final ball is placed in a way where I will scratch if I attempt it, my ball miraculously ends up behind another or has another ball impacting my next shot, OR, and this is my favorite, I hit the ball and no matter how much backspin I put on it, still rolls right into the pocket with the 8 ball). I didn’t believe the whole bots thing until recently, and now it’s abundantly clear because I have no idea how I always clear a table, then the bot has free range to the table and never scratches, even when they bounce off 3-4 walls (if I did that, it’s 100% gonna scratch) Most likely going to delete this game or only play the “practice” for general amusement from time to time. But when the coins run out, I’m gone. Also, let it be known that I went from 1.2M coins to about 20k almost over night. It was that bad of a freak losing streak. Like, unnervingly sus. Sketchy game. Can be fun for the casual player, but if you actually become invested, they do what they can to get your money.Version: 5.9.0

Rigged!I’ve played this game many times! The problem is, once you get on a good streak they start manipulating the game so you lose. Several times after the break the balls just switch places right before my eyes. I have pictures. These WILL be posted on your social media pages..Version: 5.2.7

Good game,EXCEPTGet rid of Play someone new. When I have been playing new people all night the computer selects. Git rid of the penalty of playing someone twice in a week, when it’s the app that paired us up. VERY annoying. Give Me the 2 free spins I earned daily, doesn’t seem to know what level I am on. Better YET get rid of the bogus spinning wheel all together. It is purposefully rigged to only pay out a big amount after hundreds of spins, Nothing random about where it lands. Give us a good reason to have dozens of cue sticks. Maybe a tournament of like sticks or something. Give us a good reason to have 30+ cue sticks. All these things can be fixed if they wanted to. NOW for the biggie. And they probably can’t solve this one even if they tried. When the cue ball is against the rail or another ball, the cue should be limited by where it can strike the cue ball according to said balls position with the rail or other ball. Like in real pool. FIX That one and you would get all 5 stars from me. I have 14 billion coins, so those of you stop whining about game being rigged. It is though. I just got beat by the ? Avatar blue head with a level of 83 making one incredible bank shot after another, the last one a 3 Railer. It was fun to watch though..Version: 5.5.2

Ripped offI don’t think it’s fair that lower percentage players can buy skill. I have ben beaten at least 20 times on the 50m table by players who, despite having low percentages, sunk every shot with multiple rebounds without even lining up a shot. This is very obviously not practiced and earned skill. For this reason I will no longer play on that table. This removes my abilities to complete some daily challenges. I’ve been playing this game for a a few years now and this is my second time starting from scratch, however this is leaving me feeling ripped off, and I know the same is true for a number of other players I know. Why bother playing when others can just buy skills?.Version: 5.5.6

Beware the cheaters using hacksThis game was great and I have played it for years but today I’ve lost hundreds of millions playing cheater after cheater in Mumbai (the 30 million game) . I knew there were hackers here and there but 3 out of every 4 games I’ve played today have all been against cheaters, all from Pakistan (for some reason 🤷), and they play the most ridiculous multi-bank shots, one after the other, not even subtly hiding the fact they’re full-on stealing from me. Pathetic people with bad morals. It disgusts me. So with my last 100 million left in the bank and having reached level 224 with a 60.2% win rate - I will be deleting this app today never to play again. Ugh the time I have wasted… 🤦‍♂️. I hope the devs do something to fix this for the new players that join who are unaware of the crap they’re working up towards when they start playing the higher winning games like Mumbai and Berlin. The game at this point is ruined by the cheaters, there are simply too many of them now for it to be enjoyable anymore. If you’re considering playing this game, please for the love of god do NOT pay for anything in the game using your real cash as you will be wasting your money, guaranteed. This is not a fair game and I do not recommend it. Shame on the cheaters and shame on miniclip for letting it get this bad. I hope this review negativity impacts their income, even if just slightly, but I doubt it. Anyway, have fun, you have been warned..Version: 5.11.1

Disappointed gameI don’t play games to much but because I like to play pool in reality so I decided to download this app. At the beginning I like this app and was fun to play. After that I discovered that this game is all about money and if you don’t pay you will never progress even if you are the best player in the world. The game is design in way to not let you win always for example in five games in row. This done by making you play again an opponent has twice or triple better level than you or someone very lucky. Even if you have a chance to win against them the game algorithm is developed to enforce you make intentional fault. I always tried to be very careful when hit a ball by making sure that ball will get in a pocket 100% and white ball will not pocket considering all physics aspects. Then you find that the ball is bounce at pocket with out any sense, or you are run out of time or white ball end ups at pocket. Sometimes I have no chance to win but the game make sure to win me and beat the poor opponent lol. Very disappointing when you use all perfect techniques to win a ball and then the decide to beat you. So if you are playing for fun specifically with your friends I will suggest it otherwise look for other games. I definitely don’t recommend this one, so please don’t waste your time and put yourself under extra stress because of stupid rules of this game..Version: 4.8.5

To many cheatersTo many cheaters run this game now. Seems like game developers do nothing about it. Really ruins the game. Deleting it now..Version: 5.11.1

Completely cheated!At first this seemed like a really great game until it started kicking me out before I could even finish an entire round. Then I started to realise that I didn’t get my all my coins at the end of a winning match. Some times it would even take my coins at the start, then I magically end up at the home screen with no game and of course my coins are lost!!!! There have also been instances where my opponents win a game that they were clearly about to lose because the cue ball magically disappears and all of a sudden all their set has been pocketed without them even trying. If I could give this game a 0 I absolutely would!!!! So since I can’t, I will just give this as my rating.🖕.Version: 4.5.2

Sets you up to fail, defies physicsThe idea is to let you feel good about how well you’re doing, then when you start playing for high wins all of a sudden your white sinks in ways that make no sense. All breaks are randomised, you can break the same way every single game and get a different outcome. The algorithm is designed to build you up and watch you fall so you get frustrated and spend money. Once they know you’re willing to pay for things you just fail again and again… but it’s not usually you failing, it’s the way the game is designed. Scam game. Also a lot of your opponents are fake. I’ve seen the same profile photos (pictures of humans) on so many accounts from various countries with various stats, and you rarely win a high stakes game against them regardless of their stats.Version: 5.7.1

Fixed results with increasing number of botsI’ve been playing this game for a few years now and have billions of coins without ever paying for new cues. In fact, have never paid a cent to play this game. That said, it’s become very evident that the vast majority of games you play are fixed. Skill is such a minor determining factor of who actually wins or loses for a material number of your games, and it’s only gotten worse over time. Over the last twelve games I’ve played, you can clearly tell that four have been computers, who all get to break and have a 100% chance of clearing the table before you have a shot. In other words, if you assume you have a zero percent chance of winning 33% of your games, you can max out at 67%. Since I win 65% of my games, I effectively beat 90+% of human opponents. That said, it is very frustrating to have to take a step back in coins every so often because of the number of bots you play. If the developers want to improve the game, it should be completely human interaction. I don’t take offense when I lose to a human player, but is very frustrating to lose millions of coins to a robot. When it happens 1 out of every 3 games, the frustration is amplified. For people who pay money to play, please heed my words that you’re wasting your time and money. Hone your skills and play for free as I do. In conclusion, if the number of bots continue to increase, my time playing this game will soon reach its end..Version: 5.12.0

Facing big money tablesHi, the game is ok but I don’t like how it quickly refers me to big money tables based on the amount of coins I have in balance. I suggest after each game ended, it should just refer me to the lowest money table, safer than a big money table pops up unexpectedly and I accidentally click on it. Nobody wants to risk to lose all their coins that quickly. You might have to change the colour of the 500k (win) table because it looks like the 100k (win) table. Thanks..Version: 5.2.2

It’s ok, but you never get ahead in this game.As the game starts out you are matched with players of a similar rank to you resulting in you regularly winning games. As you progress you start being match with players well outside your level (for example I’m level 31 and I have been paired up with someone at level 128) often at the curious times. For example, if you’ve been grinding away on the lower dollar tables and you make enough to play a higher dollar table you curiously get paired up against a player 30 of 40 levels higher. It appears the game is trying to force you to pay money to progress. The obvious stacking of the deck against the player is not only frustrating but makes the game unenjoyable - I’ve now deleted it. The game is addictive, but much like an actual pool shark, you never had a chance to begin with..Version: 4.8.4

FIX MATCHINGI’m only level 70 and play casually never any high tables because I always lose against level 200+ players, I finally started to play 50k again and guess what happens. Lost a lot of money to sweaty level 200+ players who have billions of dollars yet for some reason wanna pick on people with not even 10m, I’m over it. Match me against people my level or even instead of level match people based on their total winnings since people with higher winnings usually are better players than those with lower winnings. How am I ever supposed to gain more money if I keep losing it all to people who have so much money they don’t even notice if they’ve lost or gained anything. It’s a joke, I know miniclip doesn’t care about player enjoyment or fairness and just about the money so probably no point in even typing this out. I’ve sent multiple reviews and never had a reply..Version: 5.8.0

Honest ReviewEdit *READ the lower star reviews! See the consistent messages about the gameplay* Gameplay - this game is a good choice, it is a great way to relax and enjoy a bit of downtime from the hustle and bustle of daily life. It’s quite interactive, the features are impressive. Value for money - the constant reminder to ‘buy’ things from the store is both repetitive and annoying. When you ‘win’ gifts, you can walk away with a sense that you’ve been dooped. The spin to win is a classic example where you can feel like it’s ‘fixed’ The game constantly encourages you to buy things from the store, whether that be virtual cash or virtual coins. The odd occasion I’ve done this - I’ve felt like I’ve wasted my money as the feeling of being dooped is always there, I’ve decided not to spend any real money anymore. This would get a higher score if the incessant reminder to buy stuff with real money is dialled back, and the actual gameplay makes you feel it’s fair and equitable..Version: 5.12.0

My Top 3 IssuesI love this game. If I get a new phone this one of the games I make sure to download. However, I gave it a 1 in hopes this encourages the programmers to fix the way the game works. 1) I keep getting pop ups and stuff to login to my FB account. If I don’t have a FB account then it’s annoying so I think that should be an option. When I do login then it’s like it starts over. Whatever money I had recently doesn’t transfer. And Vice versa. One time I logged in and I actually paid for some coins. I got a new phone and everything was gone because it logged me out. When I logged back in the coins weren’t how it was before. That’s ok because it was my mistake to login in the first place but also what’s the point of logging in when we can’t change our profile name or insert our own picture? We can’t do it as a guest so you would think we could do it while signed in. 2) another major issue is during one of the contest, it says we pay an entry fee of $5K and get $10K if we win so a totally profit of $5K. However, I noticed that it only gave us $9K so a profit of $4K. Why is that? 3) it’s hard to file a complaint. It’s hard to contact anyone. Before the Apple Store app didn’t allow me to write a review because of problems with my keyboard so I had to go to twitter in hopes someone notices my complaint. However, no one cares so no responded..Version: 5.12.0

Good game but bad glitchSo I’ve been playing 8 ball pool for a while, and one day when I go to Auckland my account got re started! I had 404k now I restarted to nothing! And also - I’ve been telling my friends about when I had 18k I Won a 1000 dollar match, and after had 17k, and rn i had 23k and won another 200 dollars match and now got 22k. Not impressed by this - plz plz fix this glitch and be quick abt it!!! 😣😠😢😱😤.Version: 5.10.4

Rigged/Pay2WinOddsI’ve played for years now. Every here and there when I get the chance and feel like playing. But I decided to do a little study on the games mechanics and assistance. You could win 20 games in a row in Las Vegas (10,000 buy-in) if you tried but as soon as you move beyond that, you’ll see that you’ll get a lot more “guest” player opponents. They will somehow hit the most impossible sloppy shots, always the perfect amount of power to line up their next shot and you won’t even get a chance to play. Now I know there are players who are just that good with a lot of time into the game... but I ran an algorithm on recorded game play based on the odds of winning with diff buy in amounts and a 2nd based on odds of winning (same buy ins)after making in game purchases - both with all shots made at full power for the baseline. Out of the 20 matches I did for each analysis, I’ve concluded that you’re approx 15-35% (depending on the price of the IGP and or quantity) more likely to win after making an in game purchase. Strictly playing without purchases at full power, the farther you progress in buy-in price, the game will shuffle through a few ways of how it reacts to your shots. You could attempt the same shot(Same angle too) 3 times and each time it would be different. If you read this far, do what you will with the info. That concludes my findings. Thanks.Version: 4.8.4

A rigged game!This game is quite addictive and has all it needs to be a successful bit of entertainment but much of the features are rigged e.g. ‘free spin’, which gives you no more than 150 coins. When you’re in a live game, the aim guidelines don’t show the proper trajectory of the cue ball after it hits the coloured ball, thereby increasing the chances of potting in the cue ball as well. Rewards from games claim to be double your initial deposit of coins but in fact, you only gain what you deposited in the first place. You can’t spectate a friend’s match which could be something this game can add in as an extra. When you are broke, the game does nothing to help you back up. You have to play matches yourself to earn back coins. This can be really frustrating. Also in general, prizes are too stingy when playing ‘special games.’ Sometimes when playing ‘9 ball’ and tournaments, you are up against people 50+ levels higher than you which is absurd. The idea of having to charge your cue every fifty shots is stupid, especially when your cue is advanced where you have to pay a big sum. There’s a few more things that require fixing and improvement but apart from that, the game is good, whether you a new to pool or not..Version: 4.8.4

Don’t spend money on this app!!!This was one of the best games I’ve played, and have spent a lot of money on this app. Since the last update, I’ve lost ALOT of games because of issues and have had to spend more money to play. When changing to another players turn, the balls will randomly rearrange and will cost you a game. I’ve lost 5 games today while on the 8 ball on Moonlight because the balls rearrange when it changes to my turn again. This also happens when it says “ waiting for player to respond” and has happened on regular 9 ball as well. I’m not talking about just in game money, I’ve had to purchase more in game money because of the glitches in this game. I also had a3, 12 hour boxes left that weren’t open yet, and they have now changed to 4 hour boxes as of a few hours ago. I’m not sure if this is something because of the update, or if it’s a deliberate thing done for revenue, but either way, I’m done spending anything on this game. You’ve been warned. Great game, just don’t spend any money on it, and don’t expect consistency. I know I’m not the only one, this has started happening to actual friends that play this game. I will also add that the spins and scratch offs are rigged. Out of over 100 spins, there were only 4 spins that I won over $500. The scratch offs are the same way, they are a waste of money..Version: 5.4.2

Cheating issueThere’s no way to report players and it’s been issue after issue for a while. It’s quite obvious when someone lines up one of the most difficult shots you’ve seen over years and years of playing. I know of a few jailbroken editions of this game that provide a line extension so you can see where every single ball will go. Not being able to report these players just makes it so they can win time after time. Second, all breaks are supposed to be simulated and never the same as the last. 90% of the time in 9 ball, unless I break, I lose on that break. It doesn’t take much skill to use a specific break that works every single time. I’ve played for WELL over 10 years (before it even touched IOS and was only available on the miniclip website). The cheating issue and 9 ball issue are at an all time high now and I’m quite tired of it. I’ll get to 100k, 200k, whatever and then lose game after game due to the specific break. There’s also an issue in 8 ball where the ball can bounce off the back of the pocket or even go THROUGH the pocket! I’ve had this happen a few times and you quite literally can’t win unless the opponent puts in the 8 ball early. I’ve played for years because there haven’t been issues until recently. The game also turned to p2w (game pass) which is disgusting to me. “Oh you can get 5 scratchers for $2.99 or you can give us $5 and get the scratchers and a million other things, EVERY MONTH!” Fix the game that I used to love, PLEASE!.Version: 5.10.0

I’m never recommendedJust you lose your money. They create this application just for your pocket that’s it. I lose all my coins just because of application bugs more than 15M, Poor support un friendly a lot of bugs nothing not clear, Yes it’s interesting game..Version: 5.7.0

Criminal fraud!First of all, please explain why you can’t give zero stars? This game is an absolute joke! Like a previous reviewer said, it’s not hackers, but miniclip’s own bots doing the burglary. There are an incredibly nauseating amount of cheat bots that make ZERO pretenses about being a bot. Especially in the highest level games. Take 10M 9 ball for example. You’re up against an opponent that has won 256 out of 300 games, with 9 BILLION in winnings. I’m sorry, there isn’t a soul out there that can win at that high of a percentage, since roughly half the games aren’t even in your own “control”. You’re gonna get the table run on you A LOT. There’s no way to have a winning percentage over 60% if you’re playing all high tables, let alone 85-90%. Then these mofos don’t even aim, hit the lowest ball on the table and make four bumper bounces to hit three different balls to get the nine ball to go softly into the pocket. If that happened once, I could chalk it up to luck. But it’s been happening EVERY OTHER GAME!!! They’re just there to rob you of 10M and you’re absolutely helpless to do anything about it, cuz even if you do get the break, the game sooooo easily just makes you scratch or otherwise puts you behind another ball with no possible angle to hit the lowest one. It’s an absolute joke. I’ve unfortunately spent money on this game, but NEVER AGAIN, and I suggest you don’t waste your money either..Version: 5.8.1

Unfair Play...You guys need to do an update for this game, specifically to do with opponents pocketing the other players ball and still getting their shot. Like I just played a game and my opponent called a pocket and sunk mine first then his and still got his shot. It’s making it way too easy for them to win and I’m losing hard earned chips and ones that I’ve paid actual $$$ for. If something doesn’t get done about this then I’ll be deleting the game!! Also the spin and win is rigged, I put a review up about it quite some time ago and nothing was said or done about it, getting a bit beyond a joke, because I did actually enjoy this game once upon a time. I’ve now moved on to Kings of Pool and hardly play this due to these constant reminders of how bad this game has really gotten...👌🏻.Version: 3.12.0

Good, but…I would give it 5 stars if they fix one bug and make a few changes. The bug is the chat order is not always saved. I have had numerous times that I see “updating” and then the chat order is lost, including some of the messages that I hid are no longer hidden. The most annoying thing I would like to see changed is the very annoying notifications that pop up during the game. There should be a setting to allow notifications always, only when not playing a game, or never. It would also be nice to have more proper language support. If my language is set to English and I’m playing someone that has their language set to Spanish, messages I send from my chat packs should display on my opponent’s device in Spanish and messages my opponent sends should display on my device in English. Cheaters have recently become a major nuisance, probably not the first time. I realize losers that resort to cheating because they can’t play will always be around and I realize that there’s always going to be someone better. I don’t like losing, but I accept it without a grudge when someone actually beats me. This is extremely frustrating when it’s some loser that has no skill. I’m sure the app could be improved to detect the cheating and prevent it..Version: 5.8.0

It Black-screened after a win and i lost 250,000 coinsI had over 250,000 coins saved when i left a game where i had won 20,000 coins in Los Vegas Fullhouse, the game started lagging while I was accepting my prizes from said game and apparently(can only assume at this point) it had made me auto join the most expensive game i could join at the time, the 500,000 Cair something game, without me ever seeing anything ever happen on my screen. It was frozen on the winner screen with the +xp boxes ect, than it just black screened and the game closed which would have been fine but when i logged back in I only 30,000 coins left in my account… I have an Iphone 12 so it is not an old phone by any means.. Other then that happening to me twice now, once when i first started playing in 2020 and now, I really love the game but i don’t know what to really do now. Sure i can save up the coins again but if it can make you auto join the most expensive game you can play after the game freezes and then it crashes before you can play said game… Well it’s not exactly skill based at that point.. maybe they could add a “are you sure” button before you start the game to keep the auto join from happening while it crashes or something like the 9ball where you choose/accept the amount before playing :(.Version: 5.10.4

The worst gameI have played maaaaany games in my time and this game is by far the worst for rigging the game so paying customers win. What is the point in playing!? You make it impossible by making us play against high ranking players and the games are rigged so that even when you KNOW you have made a clean shot the ball moves in a way that means you miss, when you have played the same shot hundreds of times and know how it plays out. Some of it is my own mistake and I am happy to admit that but this game does not play fair and there are plenty of other reviews that all say the same. I wanted to give this game the benefit of the doubt but I have to admit to feeling the same as others that this game cheats and makes it unenjoyable to play, why would waste my time on it. Well I’m walking away, shame on you. I understand the need to cover the costs of the app and you have a business to run but there are plenty of good games out there that run absolutely fine and they make good money from it still. If you weren’t so greedy you would probably be better off, more people would play and pay and you wouldn’t end up with awful reviews, and there are a lot of them!! What does that tell you!? Are you there? Are you listening??.Version: 5.8.1

BS gameOnce you get to a certain level you never get matched with your own level. You normally get matched with player 3x higher then your level. Also their are cheats in the game, but there is no way of reporting them. You can tell who are the cheats when you are winning, then all of a sudden you time out. Which allows them to get their turn and they end up winning the game. Also then the ball suddenly moves just enough from to pocket so it allows them to get a clear shot at there ball. I have also notice my white ball curving just enough to sink itself so that I lose my turn. I only play to waste time, as I know there is know there is no point trying to achieve anything on this game. If I was able to give it no stars I would have..Version: 5.6.5

PLEASE READ THIS ISSUEThere is a reason this is 3/5. So a half star off for the rigged wheel, you need to get that junk randomized instead of the bull that it is. THE TWO AND A HALF STARS is because I scroll to play in Moscow and it accidentally puts me in a game that costs way more than that. I filed a complaint because I click the red back button and IT DOESN’T WORK. It backs me out of the game and takes me to the home screen. Then I go to click on moscow and it scrolls and BOOM IM IN CAIRO KASBAH. I lost 250,000 coins that I’ve been saving up playing this game for years and when I talked to support I couldn’t get my coins back cause “it’s too many coins” said support. My friend gave me half of her coins and I’ve been saving up to give them back but playing in Sydney and I was SCROLLING and while scrolling it clicked los vegas. I clicked that stupid red button again and I even completely closed the game even though I saw the main screen again and when I reopened it BOOM IM IN LOS VEGAS WHEN I REOPEN THE GAME. I’m lucky I actually won but I am honestly going to delete this app if it happens again and rerate it to a one star. I’ve loved this game for years and I have worked super hard in this app just to get 300,000 just to lose them all in one game because it clicked on it while I was scrolling and the RED BUTTON DOESNT WORK!!!!.Version: 5.2.3

Good needs improvementsSick of it putting me straight into a game when I’m trying to go down to the lower tables. It should have a 3 second countdown. I slide my screen across but because the highest table you can enter comes up first it will register the slide of the screen as a tap and before I can cancel the search it puts me straight in. Even if I press the back button in time it will put me in a game. I’ve literally lost all my chips multiple times because of this. Start us off at the lower buy in tables and make us slide across to go up. That’s my biggest issue with this game..Version: 5.12.1

Pretend this is 0 starsI’m absolutely disgusted and outraged by this game. I purchased 3x Spin and Wins in this game, won the biggest prize you can ($2,000,000 in game currency) and never received my prize. I contacted customer support to be told I never paid for it which I did and had receipts for, so I went higher up and was told “we have nothing further to add, any contact after this will be regarded as spam” never mind the fact I’ve only contacted them twice regarding this issue. They refuse to even give me a refund so I’ve reported them to scam watch and Apple. Do yourself a favour and DONT make ANY purchases in this game. In the off chance you win the largest prize in the game, you’ll never receive it and be considered a liar and blocked. Their customer service is absolutely disgusting and I’m honestly shocked that this kind of thing still goes on. No I’m not some 50 y/o Karen asking for the manager, I’m an every day person trying to play a fun game but having it be ruined by a disgusting, greedy company..Version: 4.7.7

Editors choice? 😂After playing this game pretty regularly for 1-2 months this is how I feel. It’s sad that this makes editors choice. It’s a game that is annoying with how hard they try to get you to spend money. The matchmaking is rigged against you at a certain point(I’ve played players lvl 100+ as a level 28.. 😂😑🙄). Cant play certain tables or else you’ll go bankrupt and have to buy more coins. But don’t worry, there is a wheel spin that you could win up to $2,000,000 🤩😂 Ive only ever won $150-$250(probably spun it 50+ times and it’s always one of two prizes out of like 18 possibilities so that’s rigged too). I also have a gripe with having to scroll to the lower level tables every time I want to play. I have to flip past 7 higher level tables that I’ve unlocked and can’t afford to play on every time I want to play a game. It also doesn’t cost much but it costs money to even play off line by yourself. It’s really obnoxious. It’s always trying to get $5-$15! From me for pool cues and coins. Aside from all of that it all functions pretty well when you’re in a game and it can be a good time shooting pool. I’m gonna look for a better app but this might be editors choice because it’s the only decent pool game 🤷🏼‍♂️ it’s the only one I’ve tried so far but from what I can tell, I wouldn’t get too excited about this..Version: 5.2.3

Miniclip disgusts!Such a shame they’ve ruined this high quality game! #TRUTH. 2+ yr player worked diligently to gain higher ranks & saved coins, all to get drained with CONTINUOUS MIS-PAIRING on every single game to absurdly higher level players to lose over and over again. Zero customer service, no response to inquiries or glitches causing loss of high stakes games that were won, only to never receive winnings. This company doesn’t care one bit they’re just money hungry infusing multiple more ways to cheat you within a day of playing and winning here and there only then your coin balance is lost within a few games. So many traps set to get you to lose including no way to exit a high stakes game even before game is set before breaking. This company should not be able to rob people blind like they do. Unfair, continually disappointing, infuriating! There were many great reasons this used to be a QUALITY and FUN game—NO LONGER, they’ve completely ruined it. In fact they made it so much against the odds it’s no longer worth playing for more than an hour as they already turn you back to losing and unfair pairing! Deleting NOW without looking back. They lost good customers with us, our family, all our friends we’ve advised NOT to bother with any Miniclip games, especially 8 ball. Shame on you!! Respectfully, “Sick & Tired” ~DONE!”.Version: 55.2.1

So badI never get over 500 Coins on the spin wheel and whenever I play a match they match me with someone that has a way higher level than me.Version: 4.8.5

RIGGED APPNO WAY TO REPORT CHEATING PLAYERS! Every person I’ve played with a ridiculously high win percentage (~60% and up) CHEATS and that’s why their percentage is so high. Why isn’t there a way to report the player for blatantly cheating during the match?! Also I’ve been playing this game for YEARS and the pop up’s in my face every 2 seconds are absolutely infuriating!!! There is no need for that, every single step of the way they designed it so that every action has a pop up screen, pop up ads etc IT’S NEVER ENDING. You have to X out of like 10 pop up screens/ ads just to get back to the game. What’s also infuriating is the fact that I NEVER GET TO BREAK. When I DO get to break no matter what method I use, no balls get potted usually. Keep in mind I have legendary level 2 cues so the “physics” just doesn’t make any sense. For every ONE game that they DO let me break, it’s followed by 20 games that I don’t break. This has wrecked my win percentage as well as my ability to win competitions/ event rings. If you’re not the one breaking, you can almost guarantee that you won’t even get to take a shot before the other person wins. So the fact that I only get to break about 20% of the time is really screwed up, they need to fix this. It should be exactly 50% of the time. Ridiculous app rigged for you to lose most of the time..Version: 5.4.3

Sad asThis was my daily game every night before sleep I would play a few games loved it. Then in the last month it’s been horrid . To be truthful I’ve hardly played because it keep crashing. I use an iPad that has run flawlessly forever but I can’t play anymore 😢😥😡 Can someone please explain why it keeps crashing ....I’ve just tried again The app opens if your lucky then trying to play a game it crashes , hit one of the magic boxes it crashes and I lose my prize I’m done ....please fix this.Version: 4.3.1

Game rips you offBeen playing this game for the longest time ,and enjoyed it and had accumulated lots of coins, only to lose pretty much the lot. Not only do you loose you money that you earned, but halfway through a game and it glitches! The developers ought to improve this and change some of the rules of play too. If a opponent can’t play there own ball they will play dirty to win!! If you can’t play fair, don’t play at all . It ruins it for people that enjoy pool.Version: 5.12.1

RiggedI was enjoying it until I realized the game was rigged. And no, I’m not just a poor sport! I had been playing for a while when I realized I was running low on game tokens, and the app offered me a deal for a few bucks, so I figured, ok, why not? It was then, after I made a few purchases that I noticed I started loosing a lot more, and, surprise surprise, needing more tokens. Still, I figured, oh well, I’m just on a bad streak. One day after paying $14 to unlock one million or so coins, I started about a 20 straight game losing streak. So I actually started doing some tests. I had noticed I would miss simple shots by a pretty wide margin, so I actually got out a straight edge, and lined up my aiming vectors to go straight into the pocket. They missed by a HUGE margin. I did this test about 20 times and I would say 15 of them missed. Also, during this losing streak after I conveniently payed money, I noticed I would NEVER sink a ball while breaking, whereas before I would sink a ball about 75% of the time on the break. The spin feature is definitely rigged as well, it’s about as consistent as a pair of dice. There are actually a lot of forums on this topic if you look for them online, and many other examples as to how it’s rigged in order to get you to spend money. Bummer. I guess as usually, the only color that matters is green….Version: 5.14.5

It’s fun. But... it handicaps you unless you payThe ads should be enough. Game play is good but after you win some games it starts to cheat against you. I suspect that may change if you give up your Facebook info ( no way I’m doing that) or pay money ( I might if I didn’t feel cheated). As others say, you will see that some players just smack it hard and win. If you really try, you can see how the cue ball or your object ball is “influenced” by game handicap. If you like to feel cheated, this is the game for you! Update... so I leave a 2 star review and now it won’t connect. Coincidence? I don’t think so. Update 2022- definitely cheats. I have paid occasionally and fared better. I played even though I know it cheats and I got up to 5M coins! I have a 53% win ratio. But then started losing and dropped to 600k. Scratching like crazy, make 7 in a row and then oddly snookered on the 8 ball. All kinds of strange things like missing a super easy shot or terrible bounces off the rail. Playing 100k games means I had to lose 45 more than I won or I would not have gone so far backward. That means if I played 100 games, I had to lose more than 70 of those. And yet my win ratio has remained the same. It just doesn’t make logical sense that my losses could suddenly pile up like that..Version: 5.8.1

Algorithm determines who will winFull disclosure, I’ve only been playing this game for a few days (albeit, for about 7 hours each day — hey, I’m self-isolating :)), but I’ve already noticed the most annoying feature. First the good...great graphics, lots of choices of play, and you are able to upgrade cues fairly quickly if you play a lot. Now the bad...it seems it is sometimes predetermined who the computer wants to win the game. I have — on many, many occasions — been down to my last ball (or two) after running the table. I will hit the next shot in the pocket only to have the computer suspiciously make my ball roll farther than it normally would have and to place it in a position which I cannot finish the game. At first, I thought it was just me. But after many an experiment with using the exact amount of power to roll the ball towards the end of the game, I have found it is very consistently inconsistent towards the conclusion. It is almost that the computer algorithm wants to make it exciting towards the finish line. I DO NOT like games which the computer determines outcomes. If you are okay with this situation, then by all means, play this game. It is not bad other than this “algorithmic anomaly”. It is, though, the prime reason I WILL NEVER pay any actual money to purchase anything from game developers that do this to their games..Version: 4.8.4

DON’T PAY for in game extras!!!The game itself is pretty cool, and works well which is a the only reason I’m giving 1 star. You’re constantly given the opportunity to pay in game for extras such as coins or cash again this is fine. What isn’t fine though is when you’re given the opportunity to buy things such as additional spins which are supposed to give you the opportunity to win much higher coin amounts, this is where things start to feel almost scam like as you’ll only ever win the minimal amount of coins available per spin, usually the same amounts that you can get in the game for free by occasionally watching the 30 second adds (do this instead DON’T pay)!!! There is also a section within the game that promises much higher amounts of coins if you sign up to promoted companies which offer subscription services. I signed up to one of these services and over 2 months later have received absolutely nothing by way of the coins promised. I tried to report this via the instructions given but it doesn’t work and won’t allow you to actually submit the claim. A good game but let down by the developers greed unfortunately..Version: 3.13.0

Glitching & HackingDon’t waste your time playing this game ... there are members who hack all time & you lose against them ... plus losing your coin too ... it’s crazy losing to members with weak cue vs your strong cue ... not only that lvl 120 vs lvl 45 , 62 or 76 ....!?!? In the middle of the game everything froze & you can’t do much but your time still running... then you lose the turn ... don’t waste your money and time ... I did it for a year but I reach the point that deleted the game..Version: 4.9.0

Very sketchyThis game is fun to pass the time, but it is so sketchy. No matter how good you are, you will lose. You will scratch when you shouldn’t and the cue ball will end up places on the table it shouldn’t leaving your with no shot. Also, I’ve played this game off and on for a long time. I spent a good amount of money on it years ago. I had all of the best clubs unlocked. I never had an issue restoring my purchases in the past. Now for some reason they are saying I can’t get my stuff back. That makes no sense. I did spend a dollar and got a decent stick that came with coins and cash. That stick is no better than the original one with no stats. I made more balls on the break with that plain stick than I do with the one I bought. This game could be a lot of fun and one I’d play for a long time, but just like all apps with in app purchases, it is sketchy. I will never believe that any of these games are legit. They manipulate the outcome to try to make you spend compulsively. I know at the end of the day it’s our decision, but people get aggravated then spend just to get back at those that win or because we are so aggravated spending will give us an advantage. 8 Ball Pool, Golf Rival and Zynga Poker are so sketchy. All are fun, but I’ll never believe they do not cheat. Especially if you spend money. That’s how they hook you. You’ll notice little things change, you’ll miss what should go in and whatever else. Pay close attention if you play and spend at all..Version: 5.12.1

Glitch and cheatsAt first I was so addicted to this game as I just loved it. But before long I started to dislike it more and more after buying two game passes when it started lagging such as people were getting extra shots even though I had potted and not made a foul & the game scores between people seem to change without having not even played them, I’ve even added someone from playing with them randomly but yet it says that we haven’t played any games together at all. The main thing for me though is the fact it allows people to do a foul snooker and you can’t move the cue ball which is basically cheating & in 8 ball pool game you Can pot your opponents ball as well as potting your own but yet in real life in both uk and American pool it would be a foul. So the game developers are clearly uneducated in the rules of the game, Not to mention that there is all sorts of cheats & hacks online which totally ruins any fun legit gaming so if looking to play a fun honest game then don’t bother as your only get cheaters and hackers so if you want to pay to be cheated out of your money then feel free to pay for the game pass. So all in all the game is just a big joke.Version: 5.2.7

Pay to winThe game is just introducing new ways to make players pay to buy cues or do extra spins. Have you guys realised that after collecting the prize of the spin, a small window appears that advise to pay to spin more. Why does it appear at the right time and covers your phone so you cannot ignore it. It’s really frustrating, it’s my choice when I will spend money. These are techniques that makes them earn excellent revenue. The spin is ridiculous 10/10 the prize is miserable. The old spin few years back was better. You are good at making new algorithms to make us win miserable rewards so we are more likely to pay. Isn’t it? Then you should remove the recommendation that comes out when you are playing with someone “x has recently been online, do u want to challenge him”. It’s cover part of the screen and really frustrating as you close one, then more of them comes. Why should I challenge a friend that has been recently online if he is not online at the moment. The game gave us too many advices and not leaving our freedom of choice. Sometime there is no matchmaking, you are against players that have strong cues and really high on levels. This encourages you to spend money to be at their level. Why do you matchmaking problems MINICLIP if you say the game is played by millions every day?.Version: 4.8.4

Terrible gameYou buy a cue and spend a lot, you build it up and spend even more and then the cue doesn’t perform ever the same. Sometimes it has power and other times it has none, sometimes the ball spins out of control and sometimes it hardly spins at all. Secondly, you have a time limit to play, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve potted the call within the time limit but it cancels my shot and says that I ran out of time. Thirdly, I’ve paid for tournaments many times and the game freezes and keeps me standing there waiting or just cancels me out. These people must think that we’re all rich and can spend money like it grows on trees. Not all people have hundreds to spend on a mobile game and the little they can they hope to get what they spend which is NOT the case with this game. Originally I thought this game was the best but recently I think it is close to one of the worst games out..Version: 4.8.4

This game is not like real pool at all.I give this game 2 stars because its a little but better than the other billiard games i played. If you want to win, you have to spend money on this game. I haven't bought the pool pass in over a month. Last time i bought it i won 17times in a row. I havent bought it since, i can barely get 3 wins in a row now. If you want the advantage, spend your money on those ridiculous, tacky looking cues. Your guaranteed to make a ball on the break. If these stupid looking cues were made in real life you would not be able to play with them. Speaking of cues, unlocking them to get points, also depends on what city you play in, takes forever. Those boxes are random and stupid. And also as you progress you unlock cues, and then your stuck with them. I have over 20 cues i dont use, i should be able to sell them for in game money. The touch is so sensitive too. There have been many times im scrolling through the cities and it clicks the wrong ones. Also there have been many times when moving and aiming the cue stick and it hits the ball. The accuracy of hitting the cue ball and putting english on it is way off. You should remove all the lines that show where the ball is gonna go on every stage because in real pool you dont see no lines. This game is pure bullsh** and now i remember why i deleted it the first time..Version: 5.13.1

Pay to winU see that say the games free and it is but there’s lots of in-app purchases. Same thing goes to fortnite. Here the problem some players buy lots of the in-app purchases so they move up the ranks quickly and become one of the best that simply. Players like us just keep playing games don’t buy in-app purchases and level up slowly possibly taking up to months. So when a player who buys goes against players who don’t buy we get obliterated. They could do it with there eyes closed. They could at least make it where player who don’t buy against another person who doesn’t buy. The reason why they make us play against pros is because we will get frustrated. After we start to buy in app purchases and we start winning. It goes downhill from there. U know the rest u get addicted waste money and all that stuff. So u literally have to pay to win. If u don’t like it like me do what I don’t play it don’t buy. We put money into there pockets and they make changes to the game with some of the money and u get even more addicted. So all I’m trying to say don’t play the game same thing goes to Fortnite..Version: 5.12.2

BBig spin, there was a time when the Pinter literally stopped on 25,000 coins but then before it said that claim your prize thing it changed straight away to the 200 coins thing. Like. If you're gonna put in big coins for free don't be doing those ones where you will never ever get them. Btw the Facebook thing lags a lot ALOT. So. Sometimes I can't even log in to fb..Version: 3.10.2

HackersThis game is full of hackers....Indian, Pakistani, Greenland and Indonesian are number one hackers...I hope Miniclip can do something about it...it’s not fair for us who buy coins to play with....why don’t Miniclip personnel go and play in Berlin...that’s where all these hackers are playing...we buy coins, legendary boxes but we lose to all these hackers all the time...lastly we waited to get a break but it takes you 3 games without a break at the start...honestly I wouldn’t recommend this game to my friends and family because it will drive people crazy...too many hackers cheating in this game... I will only give 1 star to this game. Angry player.Version: 5.8.1

STINGY DEVELOPERSI’ve been playing this game for a long time, and I’ve noticed how the developers have become more and more greedy, an example is the special shot and golden shots which you used to get free every day as soon as you logged in, and they used to add up if you didn’t log in for a days, so you used to look forward to playing your golden shots, they started getting less and now they don’t even give you one every day, they skip days, and you used to find great cue pieces on normal boxes but now the normal boxes are pointless as you get the same old cheap cues which you only get a few coins for as they are maxed out. You guys make enough money so shouldn’t be so stingy with cue pieces and cue upgrade prices - a million coins to upgrade and get 50 cue points which is ridiculous to get a longer aim you will have to speed 10 million coins to get upgrade points - guys you really need to go back to the days you could find legendary cue pieces in normal boxes stop with the greed it puts people off sometimes.Version: 5.13.0

Aimbots are terrible on 9 ballUnfair. Not even worth playing 9 ball.Version: 5.2.3

Good gameThe game itself is solid, however the constant advertisements have made this game really annoying. Each time you load the game prepare to be bombarded with all the offers that you have to click out of, each time you spin a wheel or scratch a card or what ever mini game you have to go through to get your daily credits, you have to click out of more offers. On average u have to ignore about 4-5 adverts before you can play a game, The amount of animations you have to sit through when opening boxes (which will probably open more adverts to get more boxes), collecting quest rewards etc can’t be skipped and waste a lot of time. However the actual pool playing experience is solid, just ruined by the excessive advertising.Version: 5.2.3

It’s a scam!Use to e joy playing this game, now for some reason as soon as I’m down to my last or two balls the time always runs out cause my screen is frozen. I’m playing on a iPhone 15 Pro Max and my screen doesn’t freeze up on anything else except this game! Scam scam scam!!!.Version: 5.14.4

A lot of bots playingGetting ridiculous on the amount of computer generated play there is. There needs to be more focus on how bad it’s getting.Version: 5.8.0

Rigged as hellThis game is so rigged lol, when I start buying from the app it starts putting me up against opponents of higher level and skill and win percentages 🙃 and ultimately lets the other opponents break for 5 games which with their skills doesnt even give me a chance as they just win after breaking. So rigged and all they want is for you to keep buying more from them so they can keep milking your money as if we arent all broke af now adays. Lets not mention the pure luck and no skill required, when i use spin the white ball doesnt even follow through the right way it should lol. So bs..Version: 5.7.0

Read before downloadingDon’t download. You will play it, you will get addicted, and you will get mad when you lose. I deleted the game today because of its ridiculous gameplay. The whole thing is made to be addicting. It’s easy to tell. Spinning rigged wheels, scratching off rigged tickets, even playing rigged games. It’s like a casino but everything is even more rigged. Don’t even waste your time on it. It’s a pay to win game where you can only get so far without paying. When playing it, you will notice that all of the high level players are the ones that waste their money on it. Now I’m not just saying this because I am mad that I lost. I was good at it, but I felt the need to let you know the whole thing is rigged, even the players you’re matched up with. I am glad I deleted this. It’s a huge waste of time and the developers only care about making money and getting you addicted, obviously. I am happy that I spent $0 on this game and got rid of it. I played the game a couple times a day, but it’s addictive nature is easy to see. I can see how it would be easy to get addicted to it. It’s best just not to make the mistake to download the game and waste your time on it, and get mad about it. I guarantee you will get upset at losing many times, especially when you play a round betting most of your money and all of a sudden you’re matched up with a level 60 player when you’re only level 20. Glad it’s gone..Version: 5.14.3

This game is rigged and full of cheaters using hacks!!!😡😡Firstly, this game intentionally makes you lose all of your coins by making the cue ball act weirdly; for example the cue ball gets stuck or it gets potted when it shouldn’t have. In the past this has happened to me several times when I know I added the right spin and force. Also, I suspect they use bots that win and give us players a chance, which results in us losing coins. The game intentionally makes us lose coins so it can try to get us to buy coins; this game is a scam and try’s to get us to buy from it - the only way you can progress in this game is to buy promos from it. And everyone knows that the free spin and wins never get us any good prizes as they are rigged (we don’t ever get over 500 coins) Furthermore, this game is full of hackers that use hacks such as auto-play or longer guidelines. Because of this I lost a lot of coins on the Mumbai table (with an entry fee of 15 million coins) due to lots of hackers on there. There is a report button, but miniclip never seems to do anything about these stupid hackers that lost me all my coins; I was originally on 300 million coins and now I’m down to 10 million..Version: 5.14.3

Download this if u plan on deleting shortly afterHorrible game.Version: 5.7.1

Thing stupidly went into middle pocket and cost me to loseI won my way up to 50k then went to bet 50k and was winning but my last shot the 8 ball magically went into the middle bottom pocket and cost me to lose stupid messed up game most rigged game ever🖕.Version: 4.7.7

Bonus wheelI like the game. The only thing is the bonus wheel never gives more than 250 or lower. As I have never gotten over 250. I would like to bigger winnings. They still haven't updated the wheel to give more than 250 might get 500 if you are lucky..Version: 3.10.2

UnfairI’ve been playing this game for a while, but after I write this review I’m deleting this app. First off why should you have to play a player 300 levels above you, you don’t stand a chance. Every time you think your doing good and might win a game, boom straight line shots that you know will go in don’t. The daily spins are rigged and will never give you more that 500 coins. Second once you get to about level 50, you never win, if you even get a shot at all the player your playing is going to win 90% of the time. All it want you to do is lose your coins so you have to buy more. I have never paid actual money for coins and never will. The clubs are so rigged it’s crazy, join a club and you will se yourself, if you don’t pay 8$ a week for pro membership you are playing against someone that plays Venice witch is 150million for a win and don’t have a chance in winning! It’s a money driven game and if you don’t pay for the membership or pay for coins it’s impossible to level up. And the rings are a joke. Now mini clip made it impossible to get any decent cues and forget about getting a legendary cue if you don’t pay you will never get one. Now you have cue trophies? And other rigged tiers you are trying to get it’s simply UNFAIR for new players..Version: 5.0.1

Fun but seriously fix the bugsThis game is really fun honestly but seriously the bugs drive me insane. Sometimes when I have a bad connection to the game it will go into a loading screen and come back into the game and everything is fine again. But sometimes after I’ve just sinked a ball in the loading screen comes up and when I get back in it says I ran out of time and that ball that I just sinked before which could’ve been the winning shot is back to where it was. And then my opponent would go on and win the game and I lose all my money due to a bug. It’s driving me nuts and it really needs to get fixed. So for that reason I’m only giving it a 3 star rating.Version: 4.7.7

UnfairI’ve been playing this for about a year now. Every match is supposed to be with someone around your skill level give or take up to 20. Their version of standard 8 ball is not the REAL RULES OF THE CURENT WORLD WE LIVE IN. On any break the 8 ball is sunk game is over. This is what happens on 9ball which you win but not 8 ball. If it’s sunk it’s reanimated onto the table again. Also when you break on in a game of 8 ball and both solid and stripes go down you should be given a choice of which one you want before you shoot again. Albeit if 1 goes in before the other then that’s what you will have to keep sinking in till the 8ball. Lastly standard 8ball ALL SHOTS ARE CALLED AND YOU CANT HIT YOUR BALL INTO OTHER PLAYERS BALL TO LET YOURS GO IN AND KEEP SHOOTING. Developers please if anything fix match ups. That’s the most unfair portion of this game. When you first start and you are a level 1 and you match me up with a 276. How is this even fair to new players. You think I want to play your game anymore. Also please fix the videos. There is NEVER ANY VIDEOS TO COLLECT FREE COINS. If non of these are fixed I will start a Blog about your game being unfairly matched and issues you haven’t fixed. I will be checking in game in 2 weeks. That’s the time before I take this blog online and let everyone know about how bad that it’s been developed. 2WEEKS PEOPLE ,2 WEEKS ..Version: 5.8.0

Needs to be fixedThe only fault I can point out with this app is that when you hit a striped ball the app tells you that you haven’t and vice versa, is there another way you can think of that can allow you to make up for a game where when someone breaks its most of the time game over and your next break is not until 3games later, so my question is what’s the point in having certain stats if they are given away for free?? A great idea of an app but a waste of an idea at the same time.Version: 5.5.6

It a good game, almost of the time.I do like this game and have spent money in it also. However it does still have some bugs. The one that pisses me off, is when you’re trying to hit the eight ball and in the slide rail for when you’re trying to push the ball into the hole doesn’t appear on your screen. So your lift without being able to shoot. I have lost a number of game because of this now. If someone could address this issue I would most definitely add more stars.......Version: 5.0.1

SpeedThis is a awesome game and I do love it but I’m probably going to delete it. The game spends most of its time "connecting" and I’ve lost games because the timer was still running even though it was connecting and I couldn’t play. It’s not my WiFi as I play Xbox wirelessly from the same room no problem and play other high bandwidth games on my phone it’s general lack of server function and is incredibly frustrating when your trying to play one game and it doesn’t connect and spends minutes after each shot connecting. Why it takes so long for a game which isn’t exactly internet demanding when it a simple game running as about 10 FPS is stupid that is cannot maintain connection. Also looking at other reviews you always ignore those referring to connecting issues and only reply to those bad reviews that sent connection related. Adding on when the game is reconnecting the timer still runs in the background and switches to the other player yet when they are unresponsive and don’t hit the ball and the timer runs out the are able to hit it after and it doesn’t switch to me??.Version: 4.3.1

Scam in disguise.This game is a scam in disguise. I spent over a year building up my coins to almost 5 million. But they make it so that soon as you click on play 1v 1 it pops up with the game with the highest stakes that’ll take all your coins if you loose. So it’s SO easy to accidentally graze your phone screen and accidentally click on the game you didn’t want and it gives you about 2 milliseconds to exit but even when your fast enough it usually isn’t enough and has already loaded you into a game. It does this so that you loose all your hard earned coins and pay REAL money to get back what they stole. This example is just 1 of many ways they try scam your money through the game..Version: 5.13.1

I wish i could love all of itI’ve been playing this game for years, i love it! but i have one issue that really irks me, u aren’t necessarily placed against someone in your league. it isn’t much of an issue, but being level 48 and constantly going up against people level 100+ (even played against level 487 once!) is really annoying because my win % and money is just going down… i’m sure those im against have no issue (who would have one playing against someone more than 3x lower level than you) but it’s really starting to stress me out. i have ASD and the constant frustration of being against people i have little to no chance of beating, is really making me hate this game. i get that sometimes there isn’t anyone, at that moment of time, in your league to play against, but i play against people level 100+ over double the amount of times i’ve played against those in my own level league. i tried to find a feedback section in the game but couldn’t so i’m writing it here. please do something to fix this, because it’s not remotely fair and is extremely frustrating..Version: 5.8.1

F’’’’ that s..Bug.Version: 5.12.2

Annoying and angering game full of glitches.Every time I tried to play it would glitch and give the person I was playing the chance to pick up the ball and move it. Also after I’d break and get a lot of the same ball down (unders or overs) I’d go to take my shot then it would glitch and give the other person the chance to once again pick the ball up. If these glitches didn’t happen it would be a good game..Version: 5.11.0

AWFUL EXPERIENCEI have been playing this game for a couple of years now and I built up to 1 Million coins. Then all of a sudden all of my coins disappeared and I was left with only 30K coins!! I am absolutely disgusted by this and definitely wouldn’t recommend this game to anyone! I spent ages building up those coins and coming back to see that they’ve all gone was unacceptable. When I came on the game, it said this is my final warning for transferring coins between accounts but I have never done this!! Another thing that is awful about this game is how when you click to play a game, it loads too quick and there’s no warning sign. This has happened to me twice now! I once accidentally clicked on Cairo and lost 250K coins. I tried clicking back straight away but it was too late! It’s atrocious how’s there’s no warning sign such as ‘Are you sure you wish to play in this city?’ The game loads too quickly and the next thing you know, you’ve just lost your coins. 8 ball pool really need to sort this out because it’s unacceptable!! I am deleting this game and I am definitely not going to recommend it to anyone!!.Version: 4.8.4

Good game but….Here’s what you should know before playing this game…I love this game and it could be so much better.. but good luck winning when you are a level 19 and get matched with people level 100 and above. Most other games match you with people on or around your level so it makes it fair but this game matches you with ANYONE I mean EVERYONE I’ve even played a level 423 it’s insane!! how do you call that fair?? This most likely won’t get seen but something needs done with the algorithm or something because I’m tired of wanting to try and play a match with a winning if 10,000 coins or more and always lose bc someone is a 200+ times my level. So in order for me to play I have to play the matches with a winning of 100 (that’s when I’m even lucky to get someone around my level)so how am I supposed to build coins at all? Did I mention that was for just 8 ball matches? Yeah, no I gave up on 9 ball that’s a joke you will NEVER be matched with anyone below 100!! I’m a pretty decent online pool player and playing again at these levels is hard for me to even beat.. PLEASE PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE MATCHING SYSTEM! It’s horrible! I will update if anything changes but I really don’t see that happening..Version: 5.12.2

Gifts won’t load to send or receive anything!!!!For months I haven’t been able to get gifts to load! I’ve deleted and downloaded game repeatedly and tried everything I could think of to fix it! Nothing has worked! I’ve missed out on so much due to this mistake on your end! Also it’s impossible to simply write to you and let you know when there is an issue! Not to mention I’ve also been paying for this app weekly and got NOTHING out of it! There’s much to be done to make this app more successful and the first thing you should do is make it easier to let you know when someone is having an issue, second would be to make sure you somehow compensate players when there’s an error on your end, and also you should help make more sense of cue stick information all together. I truly hope you find a way to to make up for the MONTHS I’ve missed out on and definitely make it easier for players to let you know when something isn’t working! We should be able to go to settings and be able to click on a link to directly let you know and that way you can actually fix the issues! I’m sorry I’m im extremely disappointed that this has gone on this long and that I’ve wasted so much time trying to fix it on my own to no prevail and spent so much money on a game that’s constantly letting me down! And today I finally gave up and deleted my subscription!.Version: 5.4.5

Cheaters!The game is amazing, and though I say this it does have it’s faults... It is easy to go online and get “unlimited guidelines” off apk websites. This makes the game very boring sometimes. I have recently had a problem where the game has accused me of cheating! They took all my winnings and reset my total $. Moving on from that, 8 Ball Pool is a game for patience and skill. It always leaves me on the edge of my seat, either being happy or wanting to smash my phone... The game has a lot of Indians in it (not being racist) but that’s not a problem :) Surprisingly the game is free but there is a few catches, the game PUSHES you to buy a free spin or pay for more coins. I am pretty sure the company as a hole is earning enough money as it is. Thanks for reading my review, bye!.Version: 3.11.0

APPLE, suspend miniclip poolA P P L E, this game needs to be suspended until minclip has effectively delt with the cheating that’s continuesly going on. I feel sorry for all the people who spend their REAL money here just to lose it to hackers. This app is another huge black eye for APPLE ‘s failing to step in. Its truly sad how APPLE has let the ios/ipad platform deteriorate the way it has. The greed has taken its toll….Version: 5.11.1

Enthralling game.It is the first time that I have found adult game play that does not become tiresome. It would be nice if players could say "you're welcome" in response to a player saying "thank you". I recently introduced a friend to the game but when we tried playing each other ( he on a desktop computer, and I on my iPad) we were not able to do so. After much trial and error we found out that we are not able to play because it is not possible for two people to play when they are playing on different devices to one another. Can this be changed, I wonder? On another note, there seems to be some kind of glitch when it comes to earning game dollars by completing the various quizzes? I have completed the quizzes on numerous occasions but the game dollars are not credit to me even after waiting for days?... Can you please fix this glitch?.Version: 3.12.3

8ball poolThe game is generally good fun but I feel as though I no longer wish to play due to one aspect. When you slide across to the different versions I find the game can open a city for example Vegas even though you were sliding across to select Moscow. Therefore I have no choice but to spend 10,000 coins when in fact I only wanted to spend 500 coins. You then have no option to get out of the matching process as even when you select back it still matches you and starts a game. You then end up losing so many coins which then makes it harder to gain more coins. I feel as though when you want to play a game it should say something like "are you sure you want to play?" As like a safety feature to stop you from losing what could be an extortionate amount of coins. I have also spoken to a number of friends of who play and have found the same problem in particular one friend has given up playing and generally only goes on to collect the daily rewards and play the odd game every now and then. Could this be looked into please?.Version: 4.8.5

Sucks - total money grab - rigged mechanicsThis game sucks and is a money grab. Pool cues that require money for charging?! If you play people that have spent real money, they will win because theie cues are better and if you’ve both spent money, the fool who spent the most will win. What a crappy game. Also if you dont spend money you will randomly sewer and miss shots because the mechanics are rigged so people spend money. Should be 0 stars.Version: 4.7.7

WorstWorst game ever.Version: 5.7.1

Still can’t understand the cuesI’ve been playing the game for over a year, I had to start a second “guest” account on another device because it seems the option to create an account within 8 ball pools is gone (I’m not using Facebook or any other social media to log in, I don’t care for either company) and I have no way of finding my original password (if I even made one) on the first device, also I can’t seem to understand why the recharge’s are so vastly different for each cue, 100-9 million Game coins !? And also the fractional rating that goes with each cue, for example 30/8 makes no sense to me and the explanation in the game rules didn’t clarify it for me either. And a google search turned up nothing, which was a surprise to me actually. Also, the change made where the ad for free coins or cash now open the App Store, which I then have to close and then “x” the ad before getting back to the game, it’s more time then I’m willing to give it most of the time, so I play less than I used too. It would also be nice to change the chat order without having to hold and slide the phrase like it is now, it’s hard to organize when you have a lot of chat phrases and you can’t see and edit on one page. Other than that, I like the game it’s responsive to the touch great graphics..Version: 5.6.7

Ok for a bit of fun onlyUpdate Oct’22 - Nearly every other game I play has players with seemingly impossible scorecards. Their coin levels simply don’t match their number of games played, obviously hack cheats!! Until that is corrected, I cannot give you a positive review. Update Jan 2022 - for the second time, the game is no longer giving me the free daily cash. Last time it stopped for about 3 months. After playing more than 20k games I’ve gained 12 legendary cues, that’s supposedly up to 72% coin return after a loss. That’s farcical and incorrect. There’s many annoying and deceitful tactics in this app. Update- the game is no longer giving the daily free cash for the last month. Downgraded to one star. I’ve played the free game for a few months now. It crashes too often, I’ve lost big sometimes when that happens. Everything about the game is designed to force you to pay if you want to progress to higher levels. I am convinced it’s a scam because on occasions I’ve missed the pot when I absolutely know I had it lined up correctly. The ads that you have to watch for the daily gifts often freeze the game. Like I said the game is ok for fun if you like pool but I don’t see the worth in spending money on this game..Version: 5.10.0

It’s RiggedComputer decides who wins every game, where rebounds go, whether a shot go’s in or not. If you use max power it’s almost always an automatic sewer shot. You save for the best cues but then you can’t afford to buy power for them so the million dollar cue becomes a basic starter cue. Everything about the game is rigged..Version: 5.3.1

Cheats you of time & moneyAlthough this game can be enjoyable when working properly, it often has what it labels as “connection slow” issues. If you tap on a profile during this event, you will see the message “updating.” When this happens and it finishes its update, you could potentially be losing time leaving you no time to aim and shoot causing you to lose your turn. This has often caused players to lose the game & money if you pay for any additional coins. It makes it appear that your connection is slow but in reality the games’ network is overburdened. This is happening more frequently than when I first started playing. There are other minor issues which aren’t worth mentioning. But the so called “slow connection” issue is the worst and why I keep rating it with 3 stars. UPDATE: After reading some other reviews, I agree that there are bots especially when chat comments like Never Give Up are used when it makes no sense. I agree with seems that most players are in countries other than my own and skill levels not matched. I agree that it cheats you out of money and algorithyms used seem to cause you to lose. There seems to be lack of support but increase in glitches. What I don’t get is why it’s still labeled as the Editor’s Choice. Therefore I’m downgrading the rating to 2 stars..Version: 3.13.6

Privilege for fewSeems like some players are allowed to cheat. The system cut you off when you don’t let them.Version: 5.14.4

Nothing but a money trapOk so I figured it out I think.. you play other players in the lower levels and lose. A lot. You only win just enough to get hooked, unless you pay big bucks, you’ll never see the higher levels. Why? Well. The game limits how far you go. How? If you miss one shot. I mean just one, the other players, (which some are the computer posing as real people) can run the whole table without you getting another shot AT ALL. Then you lose your coins and get kicked back to a lower level. The cycle repeats itself until you are scrambling to win your money back to compete in higher levels. Once you start getting close, your shots start to get off and your aim isn’t accurate (I literally screen recorded me playing and witnessed on the slow mo playback that even tho my aim was right, the computer made me miss the shot). Then you have to spend more coins to recharge your stick. They then give you spins and free coins, 100 to 300 coins a pop to keep you playing. After realizing you can’t beat the game, you go ahead and spend money to purchase more coins to play at higher levels, the cycle goes on and on until next thing you know, you’re back at no coins and either have to play at the lower stages or pay again to temporarily play at the higher ones. This game is a money trap and I’ll only play it to pass the time. But don’t expect to really win much..Version: 5.0.0

Stupid gameThis game is rigged because when someone shot the ball it curved in. when i shot it it curved out and it was really near the hole too😡.Version: 4.2.0

A game spoiled by weird maths, cheaters and greed!When this game first came out I loved it. However it now has three major flaws. 1. Mathematically impossible shots can be achieved on the table. There’s no realism to it at all. Ask yourself this! If the white ball is firmly placed against a cushion then how easy is it to reach the bottom of the white ball to perform a screw back shot? Fortunately the question is rhetorical because we all know it’s impossible. Yet magically it’s perfectly possible in this game!!! 2. As usual the game has been totally spoiled by cheaters. Obviously these people are clearly incapable of winning through skill and luck. It’s sad that the developers have not been able to control the level of cheating in the game. More impossible shots that even professionals couldn’t pull off! 3. Money, money, money!!!! Don’t get me wrong I know that we live in a capitalist world but to be bombarded with expensive cues and ‘break your piggy bank now or keep filling it’ is just ridiculous! Why the hell would anyone be persuaded to pay to break the piggy bank early! Yet there are people that would be persuaded and these people are being ripped off. So overall this has turned out to be a big disappointment and just another game exploited by greed and low life cheaters..Version: 5.11.1

LoveLove it, such a great time waster, and I love that you dont have to be advanced or anything to do the tournaments, which is what you’d expect. BUT I got the fright of my life this morning when I leveled up, it told me I had opened a new city. Then as I go to exit, it automatically enters me into that city! I was so ANGRY because the entry fee was the exact amount of coins I had in my bank. When I checked my bank it said I had 4000 coins left, I would have never entered that game willingly. Luckily I won the game, so I got double, but I was freaking out the whole game cause if I had lost, I would have no coins left for games, and I didnt get a choice about playing that game!.Version: 5.10.4

Hackers destroying the gameI’ve played this game for years and I’ve never seen so much hackers ruining the game. It’s such a shame that the creators said they’ll resolve the issue by adding the report function and tracking the hackers and they’re certainly not doing their job correctly. It was going to be a 5 star rating from yours truly but you’ve disappointed me. I hope you take this matter seriously as you’re not only allowing the hackers get their way but taking all of our time, effort and money into your game you created. I suggest you fix the game you created ASAP or compensate all players that a victim of going up against hackers..Version: 5.11.1

ImprovementsChat should be like a proper chat where you can say whatever you wish I understand for bullying purposes why you wouldn't have that but still the chat messages are only really supportive and I don't like how you pay for them It's unfair being a level 8 and put up against a level 40 or even 15 it really turns me off tournaments and special games because I have no chance of winning unless they leave the match which never ends up happening Why does every game need to be linked with Facebook just so you can't play as a guest it's super annoying cause not everyone has or likes Facebook or any social media or even needs it The cues spin quite fast and it's hard to keep control of try and make it so they have slower movements and don't go 100 miles an hour Try and put people up against people in the same country or have a function where if you don't have Facebook you can play against people in your area The game is otherwise ok and still sorta good because it's so realistic but it's far from perfect.Version: 3.10.2

Used to be good. Now you can tell it’s sometimes riggedNot the same as it used to be Some games are fine. Good game play, but you can tell now when the game is rigged. The cue will freeze and then unfreeze just in time to scratch the white ball. Or the opponents ball with screen in an odd way. It’s a shame. I’ll move on to something else..Version: 5.14.4

Good but badWhat I love about this game is the competitive feel and when I'm occasionally matched with someone who doesn't know how to play. What I really HATE about the game is how it's so rigged. Matchmaking is ridiculous, I'm level 18 and I join a match, I don't have much skill and I'm still learning how to use a few features, and oh look, I'm pared with a level 134!! I don't even get a turn at the game, while they get an achievement that reads denial. They spin wheel is FRICKEN ridiculously rigged I've always gotten blue which is lowest only once I got epic box which is nothing special. Get this game if you don't care about losing an all in (when you spend like a week grinding cash) and then matched with someone who's 12 times your level. And then losing. And who knows, if all this was fixed, maybe I'd make some in game purchases like the pool pass and stuff..Version: 4.9.0

Lag problemDear 8 ball I hope you see this message The only problem I have with your game is that sometimes when I’m playing on the table the game suddenly shut off and it restarts like just now I just 2.34M on an all in table after winning the first match and and then it restarted the app and I had lost all of earnings. Plz fix this 8 ball.Version: 5.13.1

Glitches or intentional?I like the different game goals (rings) and the look of different tables and options it gives, but other than that I’m not impressed. One problem is it doesn’t match you with players in your “ranking or experience”. A beginner may end up with an opponent that has been classified as a pro or better, depending on how long they’ve been playing. Also too many interruptions when playing with challenger banners or wanting you to challenge your FB friends. The cue stick charges don’t last through a game if you have a bad break then you may have to recharge more than once for consistent shots and that’s in addition to placing a bet. The balls sometimes can hang half over a pocket to drop then it jolts back towards the table, but the cue can too often roll with ease for a scratch. It’s just a bit fishy when you AND your opponents ball should have dropped but jolts back from the hole. There are a few more minor issues that are annoying like not being able to type your own text for chat. I’d rather it was emojis than some of the stupid pretext messages and then you have to buy more if you want to add some. Shows a lot of greed. Plus it’s anybody’s guess as to who is going to break. If you play 5 games in a row with a different player each game you may not get to break on any of those even if you lost previously. All of this is even after purchasing the app. 🙄.Version: 3.11.0

Don’t waste your timeThis god awful game just wants your money. First the ‘all in’ game mode it puts me into games with level 250’s when I’m a level 20 and they absolutely wreck me with their legendary cues. Second the spin and wins are completely rigged. I have probably spun over 50 times and never got over 500 coins from it and they land perfectly in the middle of the tiles. Third you literally have to pay something like 80 quid if you want to get a maximum stat cue and you still have to spend ages upgrading it. It is also completely rigged and broken One time I went into a game for 200,000 coins and me and my enemy were both on the black and I hit the ball pretty much straight into the pocket but the ball just stays bouncing from each side like I’m here but I’m not going in and then the enemy just easily pots it in with no trouble. Don’t get me even started about the bugs. One of the main reasons I left this game was the fact that every time it was my go I could put anymore than half the power on my cue and if I went over it would just reset over and over again leaving me to quit all my games..Version: 4.6.2

It’s so badThis game is the worst game I have ever touched and downloaded on the planet. We all need to report it and get it banned. Thank you.Version: 5.14.4

Totally unfairThis game is unjust it does not let you verse your own level say your playing a match and it could be the cheapest one day in London you can still verse a level 150 and your a level 25. As you can tell this is totally unfair. Also your cue might not be the best but it is all you can afford but the other player has the best cue in the game or one of them at least. I believe you should all have the same cue to make it more fair. But you know this creator might not be the smartest of people so I completely understand that he is not the brightest. As he doesn’t even know how to make a game fair this game is also nothing like real pool. You shouldn’t be allowed to move the white ball wherever you want. You should ably be able to move it along the white line. But hey this creator isn’t the brightest remember.Version: 4.8.4

Good game - careful of glitchesIt’s s good game. Addictive for sure. After playing so long (round 3600 games!) I noticed 3 things, 1st and 2nd happens quite often, 3rd one happened today, all are the creator server glitches: 1- Lots of lame players notice they are going to loose so they go out of the game* and you are in a shock mode -> can’t move can’t chat nothing, then suddenly they go back and you have 2-3 seconds left to shoot .. but it’s too late and they win .. that’s eFFing annoying *don’t know what they do (text message etc) but I never left a game unless my battery went dead! 2- Sometime their network is slow - could be they can play using data from rural areas or similar - then again there is a glitch when they come back but it comes back to their turn not yours (I play using fibre). 3- Had round 1.7 million credits this morning (January 2nd 2023) now I play again and a complete 1 million is wiped out… left with ~700k only Long time took to build this wallet . It’s a good game but servers need to record better the last moves and accurately go back to them if a players has network issues. Game Creators need to Build better protection against these lame players. Thanks 🙏.Version: 5.11.1

Ode to 8 ball pool!For any half decent pool players, don’t play this game. There is no skill or tactics involved. Whether you play 8 ball or 9 ball, you’ll lose 75% of your games from people just smashing and hoping for the best. Fluking is far too regular and takes away any kind of fun. If you just want a bit of amateur fun, then great! But all the in app purchases like suprise boxes, coins, piggy bank etc just aren’t tempting enough as you will lose the value of what you buy from flukes! I still play for fun, but I lost 4 x 10 million coins in a row on my last session. The last player I played was a level 11 amateur who picked out a lovely 7 cushion escape to hit the 2 ball for it to cannon off the 5 ball which subsequently cut the 9 ball at a 91 degree angle up the rail to pot for the win. I was in awe! Why didn’t I see that shot?? Maybe I’m not as good as I thought I was … hmm. Might take up cricket instead …. I give this game a solid 0.5 out of 10 and that’s purely because I like the party horn blowing emoji which is a regular feature of players arsenal to put you off! Hilarious!!! I particularly like the name of the new event - grand heist, because that’s exactly what the creators of this gaming are doing! Heisting money! For anyone currently in anger management - avoid! Much love to you all :).Version: 5.10.4

It could have been so goodDo not get me wrong, I love the game... if only I could actually play it, especially as I had earned a decent amount of coins, achieved a level I was happy with and had a great cue. What happened? That at one particular point it just kept on crashing and I haven't been able to load the game ever again. As soon as I try to open the app, this shuts down a few seconds later. This for me warrants the one star. The game, like plenty of people before me have said previously, was never perfect and had a few annoying flaws but I still loved it because I could play it but now I cannot even do that. And even if it suddenly starts working again, I have the feeling my account will have lost everything I had achieved. Like I said in the title, it could have been so good... UPDATE: I got my account AND points back BUT a few times, despite winning a game, it does not add the coins to my total (annoying when we are talking about 500k coins) nor it adds the new win to the total towards getting a ring (and this would have been my 20 out of 20 thus winning me a ring). NOT HAPPY.Version: 3.14.0

Is it a scam?I’m really enjoying playing the game I can see it’s addiction, but are you designers and makers of the game ripping people off? I’ve paid for GoPro, 7.99 a week! And nothing is different on the game. I’ve been given 2 cues and a bit of my coins back when I loose a game? It isn’t worth £7.99 a week! Maybe a month but not a week! If anyone reads this review please do not get tempted into going Pro. It’s a waste of money and I’m now having to ring up and find out how to cancel the GoPro. I earned over 500,000 coins before I went Pro now I am I’ve gone down to 250,000! It’s a bit of day light robbery. Over charging for a game. I really thought they would be some coin grabbing, cue buying experiences to make going pro. Big day NOPE. It’s looking like I’ll have to delete the game because the designer obviously didn’t think about creating a button to cancel your money been put in theirs. Rip off. And I’m a level 47 why are you playing me against people level 88 and 90, I know it’s learning experience but come on! Level 50s or 60s is about fair. Your taking the mick with the game really, I could think of so many ways to make the game loads more fair which must be embarrassing for you. Sort it. Or the games going and I’ll persuade anyone else who gets it to do the same..Version: 5.0.1

This game is starting to irritate meI like playing the game but there are a few issues with it that really irritate me. 1. In tournaments you go against people who are way over your skill level. Say you are level 50 and they match you with a level 128. The guy has a better queue and advantage over you before you start. 2. When I watch videos to get coins sometimes I get the coin and sometimes I get nothing. If I am wasting half a minute on watching ads why are you not giving me the coin. Very unfair. 3. Sometimes there is a lag. I have lost over 150,000 because it put me into a top game because I was trying to get out of the screen. Why put the top game that takes away half your points first?? To me that is cheating us and counting on us making a mistake and losing our points. start with 100 and let us scroll up not down!.Version: 4.0.1

This game is riddled. Zero stars.This game is riddled and tries to force you to spend lots of money at every opportunity. I’m not sure I’m playing against real people at times. The opponents seem to be able to pull off the most astounding shots constantly. And shots that are super easy for me, I miss. Not matter how careful I am and not matter what precautions I take I still manage to sink the cue several times a game. And in the most insane and adventurous ways. The game gives prizes all the time but you can’t access them without paying money. And some prizes you can’t collect without handing over your Facebook details. If the game was fair and wasn’t out to take as much money from me has possible it would be a wonderful 5 star game..Version: 5.6.5

PoorNeeds less computer controlled players who some how turn into amazing players when they are at risk of losing lots of money. I cleaned up the half the solids with my break then took my second shot and all of a sudden my connection was poor....ended up losing all my time on my second shot supposedly and the computer took over solids!! Miniclip need to sort this out ASAP as it’s so frustrating when your stupid computers ruin the game for good players..Version: 4.9.0

Close to PerfectThree stars for me, the update so far ain't that great, you'd notice that 8balls are close to any pocket holes would move and be place near it, its so unoriginal enter active games, the designs of other cues and its purchasing and charging coins can be enhances into an enjoyable options by using coins, hate some cues designs, weirdturds style and alienated creepy moron looks... mmm I could change it into more attractive it will be the cues and the Players rings champion holders, Ill create... yep, i't will hit the worlds records outstanding App game every years, stressing over it due to the Bugs and net connection or loses the games and yet getting addicted to it is unhealthy and its not good for the safety issue 😀😀😀 But other than that.. Its awesome and its close to being perfect..Version: 3.11.1

Absolutely awful experience (don’t let the 5 star sponsored reviews fool you)Hi, I’ve played this game for about 3 years now and on my old phone managed to get to level 68. When I tell you that this game is garbage, I mean it! The matchmaking is horrible and will put you with people who are level 70 when you are level 3 (and mind you the people that high of level instantly know how to hit every single bounce shot, two ball shot and everything in between, im suprised they haven’t figured out chip the cue ball over the other balls on the table) The game is littered with bots who will not only make the most ridiculous aimbot shots on the planet but will then throw the game literally just wasting your time. Don’t even get me started on 9 ball, if you ever have a mission to play it, or feel like it would be fun. DONT!!! The lower level you are the lower chance it is to get the break, and if you dont get the break you just immediately lose to someone who has a pixel perfect cue and 9 ball pot shot, or the table just gets ran before you even get the chance to play for the money you bet. I will not be downloading this game again and I hope this review allows others to really see what this game actually is In conclusion, this game is horrible, the community is sloppy, slimy, VERY TOXIC and everyone only ever cares about winning as fast as possible just making the whole experience either boring or just an instant delete..Version: 55.2.1

Computer playersOther than the minute long waits for the other “player” to respond and being beat by obvious computer opponents this game is great. If you start doing to well, they send some computer bot in to play you for a few games. You’ll know they are computer bots for a few reasons. A their timer never runs out. By this I mean their timer will run out and it will be a good 10 seconds before the line randomly moves and they shoot instantly and get a ball somehow around three of your balls. Sometimes you’ll hit a ball and it will hover in the pocket but doesn’t fall. The following shot, the cue ball doesn’t hit the ball at all but the ball falls. This only happens on the eight ball when playing a bot opponent. I’ve played a lot of pool in my years. I’ve watched a lot of pool pros in my days. I’ve never seen anyone pull of some of the crap you’ll see in this game. Some players are real humans and it is enjoyable to play with humans. They should stop using the bots and keep searching until they find a human match-up. Sometimes it will load you into a random match without selecting one. It put me into a 100K game today without having 100K. I lost and the game crashed. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Nothing will work. Guess I will find a new game to waste my time with. Hopefully they figure out how to make this game work right someday..Version: 5.9.0
