Review of 888 Casino
Formed in 1997, Gibraltar headquartered 888 quickly rose to prominence in the UK gambling scene. One of the oldest internet-based casinos, their long-standing reputation was further solidified by listing on the London stock exchange - allowing them to take their place amongst the UK's elite operators.
Originally standing out for a slick poker proposition, 888 Casino has since taken over as the company's crown jewel. Already offering a huge variety of games, more recently they started to develop an impressive array of inhouse gaming content. Alongside a strong mobile experience and a multitude of deposit methods, this allows 888 Casino to cater for a wide variety of needs. Throughout this review we will take a closer look at these areas, as well as some the operator could improve.
In the highly competitive online gambling industry there are a number of prestigious awards. Among the awards gained by 888 Casino are the 2015 Gaming Intelligence Operator of the year and the 2013 EGR Casino Operator of the year.
No merely mantlepiece fillers, these awards are much sought after and provide a golden seal of approval from the industry.
As previously mentioned 888 Casino provides players with a huge variety of games. At last count, there were over 270 games for players to choose from, with many of these being developed in house exclusively.
Besides these exclusive games, players can also find their favourite titles produced by the likes of Playtech, NetEnt, IGT and Blueprint Gaming. These provide players with access to classic slots, multi-line slots, progressive jackpot slots, blackjack, roulette and baccarat.
888 Casino provides some of the most comprehensive payment options in the industry. Whilst many of these won't be applicable to UK players, you shouldn't have a problem finding a solution that suits you.
Along with standard payment methods Mastercard and Visa, they also provide customers with the opportunity to use popular online wallets Neteller and PayPal. In addition, they are one of the first casinos to offer players with the option of using Apple Pay - enhance both convenience and security.
Perhaps one black mark against 888 Casino comes from their customer service. Though not bad, a lot of operators in the UK market provide a comparatively better service.
The most obvious miss is the lack of live chat. This is usually our preferred method of communication, given the speed and clarity with which issues can be dealt with. Instead, players will have to rely on the slower process of email.
Being an international operator, 888 Casino possesses a number of reputable licenses. These include licenses from the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority, AAMS Italy, UK Gambling Commission & Swedish Gambling Authority.
