Play89 adds 9-Ball Pool Game

Now that the online pool room Play89 includes 9-ball games in addition to its popular 8-ball platform, the brand name is finally justified - Now you can really play 89, when 8 is for the 8 ball game and 9 is for the 9 ball pool game.

Play89's 9-ball pool game was launched only a few days ago but is already a big success among Play89's pool players. More than that, SkillEmpire, the company that operates Play89, intends to add an online snooker game until the end of the year.

The beta version of the Play89 was launched on April 2007. Within a short time it became one of the biggest pool rooms online with over 1000 online players at peak hours. From now, Play89 players can enjoy a realistic version of the popular pool game 9-ball and will be able to play multi player 9-ball pool games and tournaments.

Play89 is powered by the online skill gaming giant SkillEmpire. It was developed using the technical advice of snooker legend Jimmy White and it's available in more than 15 languages including English, Arabic, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew and more.

In the near future, Play89 will host multi player online pool games featuring Jimmy White on a regular basis. Additionally, SkillEmpire intends to add an online snooker game to Play89 and 3D versions of the billiard games, something that is definitely worth waiting for.
