Your goal is to drop all the stripped or solid balls, and finally the 8th black ball. Lines or solids are assigned based on the first ball that sank (after the opening kick). If you drop the number 8 ball too soon, you lose the game! Also avoid dumping the white ball, otherwise your opponent can place the main ball anywhere on the table for his shot.

Is 8 Ball Pool free?
The game can be downloaded for free on iOS App Store, Google Play Store, and PC. It can also be played on the web at no charge. However, players are given the option to purchase with premium cash items and upgrades. Another thing that is needed in the game is billiard coins. While there are ways to earn free pool coins, some players can alternatively buy more coins.
What is the difference between matches and tournaments?
There are two game options in 8 Ball Pool. You can either choose individual matches or tournaments. In matches, you compete with another player in any of the different city locations. There is an entrance fee to be paid, and if you win, you will receive a prize equivalent to double the entrance fee. But in tournaments, you play with seven other players. Like matches, you pay before you can participate in a tournament and the higher the fee, the higher the prizes.
Can I play 8 Ball Pool without an internet connection?
Can be played offline in the game. However, online tournaments and competition against players will not be available. You can use this offline game mode instead as a training period.
What are the rules of the game?
Like any legitimate 8 Ball Pool game, playing Miniclip’s 8 Ball Pool also has rules, errors, and assumptions that can occur. The main premise of the game is that players will be assigned either striped or dotted balls. Each of them must place their designated balls to allow them to hit the ball 8. If a player places the eighth ball before all of his other balls, the other player wins the game.
If the main ball is placed in pots, the other players are free to place the main ball anywhere. This penalty is called a “ball in the hand”. Other errors that may penalize you are running out of time to hit the ball and place the opponent’s balls.
