  • Thanks for sharing great article. 8 Ball Pool is the best online multiplayer pool game. I enjoy this game. I’ve playing for a long time and never had any problems and there are so many different challenges. I like it!
    Thanks for sharing this post with us.

    • Ofcourse not bro! We don’t get enough time to finish our day to day work. Where is the time to play games. I used to play games before I was doing job. However, I do play few games while I travel to my office by metro. Thanks for coming by Bro.

  • Well said younger and older almost all are addicted to 8 ball pool. I had red some contents to get free points but did not get them. Thanks to you to remind me this game again because i got stuck in work badly. I remember me and my sis were playing with two different ids as competitors. Nice website i will learn some tricks hats off

  • Addictive Game.. Sounds Crazy.. !! Billiards Always Promises me some kinda addiction over me always and nice one atish for sharing the wonderful reminding..

  • Atish,
    I am addicted to this game that I play it everyday and collect points to continue the game. But, when I downloaded it on my Android I haven’t read the instructions, I lost all my 3G data in just 3 days. And When I get to know that it works online I was like What I have Done. This game is so amazing. Also One can play it as a guest for sometime without a connection also but after the points gets over, an internet connection is needed to regain the points and rewards to continue the game.

  • Yes, I agree 8ballpool by miniclip is addictive mostly because of the relatively simple interface and general simplicity to play. I’ve been playing for a couple of years and amassed quite a good level and coins etc.

    However, it has recently stopped working and I’m going crazy to find help with this.
    I,very been using a Motorola XOOM andriod 4.0.4 device and since the latest update the app won’t start.
    From some basic searching online, it sounds like the game requires the latest version of Flash Player – and Flash doesn’t support Android anymore – the latest Flash I can install is version 11.something.
    I’ve tried installing an older version of 8ballpool – version 3.0 I think, which worked for a while, but won’t continue without the update, which puts me back to square one.

    Any help please would be appreciated, tried searching for a while and indeed Mini clips own help centre, but to no avail.

    Thanks in advance

    • Hello Alan,

      I mostly played this game over PC or laptop. Haven’t tried playing on phone but you can ask Motorola support team about this issue. hope they can help.
