888 Casino Review Jump to comments

888 Casino is one of the online originals and a giant today. The site launched as Casino-on-Net in 1997, using Random Logic software. In 2007 a new platform name came to be in Dragonfish. During the summer of 2018, they re-launched on a new proprietary platform with a new mobile-first website, and website application.

The Dragonfish B2B and B2C system has more than 260 gambling domain names registered with The Gambling Commission of the United Kingdom (UKGC); 86 Inactive domains, and 37 white labels - all under the 888 trade name and license of 888 UK Limited.

888casino [888 Holdings PLC (LSE:888)] also holds licenses from regulators in Gibraltar, Spain, Italy, Denmark, Ireland, Romania, Nevada (poker), New Jersey and Delaware (lottery platform for all online casinos plus poker).

The gaming site was available to most players in the US prior to the UIGEA of 2006 when nearly all publically traded companies pulled out of the US market. Now, only those located inside certain state borders can log in to play.

What sets 888 apart?
The 888 experience is truly interactive

Depending upon your location (the software knows!) you may be able to access:

  • 888casino
  • 888poker
  • 888sport
  • 888ladies
  • Wink Bingo... all from 888.com

Our main focus will be on the casino here, which includes random number generator and live dealer games. We'll access through a UK desk so that the full complement is available.

Many countries have individualized sites. To read all about the advantages for Canadian players please click here. Players in most countries outside the UK are currently served by the Gibraltar license issued to Cassava Enterprises (Gibraltar) Limited. Virtual Digital Services Limited operates the property for players in individual EU member states without local licensing.

  • TotallyGaming Awards * Best Online Casino of the Year, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2012

Multiple languages/multiple currencies

Okay, so...

What about the games?

The U.S. Caesars/888/WSOP site offers fewer choices (~200). In New Jersey look for Evolution Gaming live dealers; IGT slots like Cleopatra; NextGen classics like 1 Can 2 Can; NetEnt, and of course 888/Dragonfish games like:

  • Ultimate Genie
  • City Life (I&II)
  • Panda Manga
  • Dino Stampede

...and many more!
Not bad for a regulated online casino in the U.S.A.!

Most UK and other Euro players, as well as other regions (millions of players in 100+ countries served), will find many more games including:

  • Bingo
  • Blackjack
  • Keno
  • Roulette
  • Scratch Cards
  • Slots
  • Video Poker

Blueprint Gaming, Cryptologic, Electracade, Edict eGaming (Merkur), GamesOS/CTXM, and Yggdrasil add to the mix along with the live dealer suite. You can see all the game providers under Gaming Platform. Canadian players will not see NetEnt games due to licensing restrictions.

Look for more than fifty 888 Exclusive slots including jackpot games like Steampunk Nation, The Royals Go Camping, and Ultimate Grill Thrills!

Proprietary web app's easy navigation

  • Instant play
  • mobile-first
  • multi-provider
  • intelligent
  • sophisticated
  • cutting-edge design
  • massive blog content

In July 2018 the site announced that Yggdrasil Gaming titles would be added to all of their core products. They used the announcement to drive home a late May announcement about the sleek new website.

They also mentioned in May that in-house games were being created by "Section8 Studios" - finally a name for Dragonfish/888 development lab! The brand name has yet to make it to the corporate pages.

Massive Blog Content
A lot of gaming sites offer a few tips and tricks, and several run blog sections for promotional purposes.

Comprehensive FAQ
A topic-driven help section answers questions briefly and succinctly. There's also an online form for questions or concerns as well as document uploads.

Pitfalls

Many years ago, this entire review would be biased toward the negative. For several years after leaving the US market the company's properties as a whole were not what I would call an ethical paradise. The problems of the past seem to have been left behind many years ago, so there's no sense going over past problems.

However, players who are unaware should know that 888 was fined by the UKGC in 2017 for a failure to protect some of their vulnerable customers.

Due to a software glitch, customers who had self-excluded from the casino/sports/poker platform were able to access their accounts via the separate 888bingo platform.

The company alerted regulators and took action. They returned all deposits and paid a record fine to be put toward "a socially responsible cause to invest in measures to tackle gambling-related harm."

Done and dusted.

Today's concerns:

  • No instant cashouts - pending 24-72 hours depending on the method
  • Wins are capped on some bonuses
  • No welcome bonus if a player already accepted one at 888games.com or 777.com websites
  • Jackpots can be paid in 24 monthly installments at their discretion

The Final Word

888casino is a fully compliant UKGC licensed gambling website with a variety of betting options depending upon a players location. The venue rates high for player satisfaction at several review sites, but has some lingering reputation problems at other advocate forums due to past business practices.

The site is tight, bright, and glitzy. Red carpet treatment is extended to all players, and specialized attention is given to VIP players.

The game selection is great, the new website application operates smoothly on mobile, tablet, or desktop, and customer service is personal - especially for a site with so many players.
