888Casino Review

One of the most visited and exciting online casinos, 888 has a rich heritage and proven track record of delivering an outstanding online experience for many years. The company behind 888Casino has been around since 1997, originally starting life under the name Virtual Holdings Ltd. 888 was formed by two brothers, Aaron and Avi Shaked and their partners Ron and Shay Ben-Yitzhaq. Aaron Shaked claims to have thought up the idea of an online casino whilst attending a dentistry conference in Monte Carlo, creating a subsidiary company and launching Casino-on-Net. This quickly became one of the most popular online casinos!

In 2002, the company launched their second online casino brand with the invention of 888Casino which later rebranded to its present name of 888.com. The operator has gone on to dominate the industry winning many awards such as Best Casino Operator Gaming Intelligence Awards 2015, Digital Operator of the Year Global Gaming Awards 2014 and Best Casino Operator eGR Operator Awards 2013.

Getting started with 888Casino

Head over to the colourful 888Casino homepage and hit either the ‘Join Now’ button underneath the new signup offer or’ Sign Up’ button in the top right hand corner.

888Casino – Homepage

This kicks off a three step registration process. Step 1 involves giving some fairly standard personal information such as name, email address and date of birth. There is also an option to change the language in the right hand corner of the registration dialog box.

888Casino – Registration Step 1

Step 2 involves choosing a username (between 8-13 characters in length) and password with a default security question and personal answer for the purposes of account recovery.

888Casino – Registration Step 2

The final step in the registration process is for the customer to confirm their address, mobile number and choice of currency to play in.

888Casino deposit options & terms

With registration successfully completed, customers are then taken to the cashier to deposit funds. Curiously we were only given options to deposit using either Visa or Mastercard, or by Paysafe. We queried this with one of the Live Chat operators who informed us this was incorrect and asked us to log out and back in again. We arrived back at the deposit page, this time with more options!

888Casino – Deposit Options

Whilst the deposit amounts or ‘how much would you like to add to bankroll’ start at £30, we found that £10 is the minimum deposit required to get started. The help icon on the right hand side also gives access to Live Chat support, which we used to resolve our query as well as the handy FAQs and a customer support number.

888Casino – Deposit Page

As a UK playing customer we were allowed to deposit with the following options, all of which required a minimum of £10 deposit. Processing times were stated as up to ten minutes for each payment method, although in reality customers should expect to see deposits available instantly, as we found depositing £20 via Mastercard.

  • PayPal
  • Mastercard
  • Visa
  • Neteller
  • Skrill
  • Paysafe
  • MuchBetter

888Casino withdrawal options & terms

Slightly curiously withdrawal timeframes are impacted if a customer is a standard or VIP member, or a ‘Gold’ VIP member. Gold VIP members enjoy slightly quicker processing times although overall withdrawal times seem slightly slow and cumbersome compared to some competitors.

888Casino bonus offer

888Casino – Free £88 New Customer Bonus

To confirm the bonus, simply login and check under the Rewards box.

888Casino – Rewards

Bonus terms &  onditions

The free £88 bonus is restricted to playing in the following games only: Millionaire Genie, European Roulette, Multihand Blackjack, Irish Riches, Rise of the Pharaohs, Mermaid’s Millionaires, Greedy Dragon, Jack’s Pot, Treasure Fair, Mad Max Fury Road, Pirates Millions, Daily Double Reels, Wild Invasion and Sizzling Hot Jokers.

The following significant T&Cs also apply in relation to the free £88 offer, or ‘FreePlay’ as referred to as by 888Casino.

The promotion is only open to players who are located in the UK, Germany, Canada and Ireland at time of participation.

The £88 FreePlay is limited to one player per household, computer terminal and/or mobile device. In addition if a player has already received a registration bonus from 777 Casino  they will not be eligible to participate in this promotion.

The FreePlay offer must be claimed within 48 hours of registration and used within 14 days of being credited. Any unused credit will be removed from the player’s account.

Maximum total Freeplay win is limited to £10, unless the player hits the jackpot.

FreePlay bonus must be wagered 50 times before being eligible for withdrawal.

Additional Bonuses – First Deposit Bonus Offer

Not content with giving customers £88 in FreePlay, 888Casino also has an enticing 100% welcome bonus available to new customers:

888Casino – 100% Welcome Bonus

After signing up and depositing a minimum of £20 to qualify for this welcome bonus, an instant £20 bonus was given.

888Casino – Deposit Match Bonus Options

The account balance in the left hand corner reflects both the bonus and cash amount available. We personally would have liked to have seen these split out for more transparency.

888Casino – Balance Summary

As per the FreePlay £88 offer, there are some terms and conditions applicable for the First Deposit Bonus Offer. We found the following major exclusions and significant terms that customers should be aware of to be:

This promotion is applicable for new 888Casino players only and one per household.

Deposits made with Skrill or Neteller are not eligible for the Welcome Bonus.

Under the terms of this Offer, eligible players who deposit £20 or more will be entitled to a bonus in the amount of 100% of their deposit up to a total of £100.

The Bonus is only credited and valid if claimed within 48 hours of 888Casino sending the claim email, by clicking on the “claim” link in the email.

The Bonus must be wagered 30 times within 90 days from granting. If a customer withdraws their original deposit amount before completing the wagering requirements, the bonus (and any applicable related winnings) will be cancelled.

With the exception of verified progressive jackpot wins, wins generated through the Bonus are capped at £500.

The below Wagering Contributions will apply in calculating the bonus wagering requirements:

Game CategoryGame Contribution
Video Slots & Slots, Scratch card, Keno, Race, Arcade, Dice and all other games that do not appear in the table100%
ll versions of Roulette, Pai Gow Poker, Caribbean Poker, Triple Card Poker & Poker table games20%
All versions of Blackjack, Live Blackjack, Hi-Lo, VideoPoker, Power Video Poker, Baccarat, Live Baccarat, Live Casino Hold’em & Live Roulette10%

For example if a customer deposited £20 to get a £20 welcome bonus, the wagering requirements (x30) would be £600 before they could withdraw any part of this bonus. But if they wagered the bonus entirely on Craps only (5% contribution), playing £600 would only count as £30 towards the wagering requirements.

Additional bonuses – Live casino

There are several other bonuses that players can qualify for by simply taking part in certain Live Casino games. The following are available on a daily basis (subject to time restrictions):

Win a bonus every time the Roulette Ball hits ‘8’:

Play 888 Live Casino Roulette during the daily Lucky 8 event, 8pm–9pm (GMT) and you could win a bonus £8 every time the winning number is ‘8’. Some significant T&Cs apply:

  • Valid for second time depositors and up.
  • Minimum bet of £8 at the Live Casino Roulette table in the 888 Private Room
  • Bonus can be claimed within 7 days of winning & credited immediately following claim
  • Bonus expires 90 days after granting
  • To withdraw the bonus & related wins, wager 30 x (bonus amount).

The customer takes their seat at a Live Casino 888VIP table daily between 13:00 and 01:00 (GMT) and if you’re dealt a bonus card, you win the amount shown on that card – it’s as simple as that! The follow T&Cs apply:

Bonus may be used on selected games only.

Bonus cards are added to the ‘888VIP’Live Casino Blackjack table during the event period only.

Maximum number of bonus cards that can be won per player per calendar month is 10.

With the exception of jackpot wins, wins generated through bonus will be capped at £500.

Additional promotions

‘Pinch, Punch, it’s the 1st of the month’

6 lucky 888Casino customers get a share of a £888 bonus just for logging in on the first day of the month. Seems simple enough, just remember to login on the 1st of each month! The bonus is divided as follows:

  • 2 players get £188 Bonus
  • 4 players get £88 Bonus
  • 20 players get £8 Bonus
888Casino – Pinch Punch Promotion

Some of the familiar T&Cs apply in order to qualify for this promotion, including:

The promotion takes place between 00:00-23:59 GMT on the first day of each month, so be sure to set yourself a reminder to at least login!

Only second time depositors and up are eligible to participate in this promotion.

Bonus expires within 90 days of granting.

Bonus must be wagered 30 times within 90 days from granting before a withdrawal may be made. Wagering contributions apply and vary by game.

21st of the month

Fans of Blackjack may want to set themselves a diary reminder for the 21st of each month. If customers deposit on the 21st using the code Blackjack20, if they wager it x10 they can get 20% up to £300 FreePlay!

888Casino – 21st Of The Month Promotion

For example depositing £100 on the 21st of the month and wagering it x10 would qualify the customer for a further £20 in FreePlay. Deposit £1,500 and wagering it x10 would qualify the customer for the full £300 FreePlay! The main T&Cs that apply to this promotion are:

Offer valid for a single deposit made by 23:59 GMT, every 21st of the month.

Only second time depositors and up are eligible to participate in this promotion.

Deposit must be wagered 10 times by 23:59 GMT of the same day before FreePlay is granted. This is perhaps where customers need to be careful in terms of keeping their eye on the clock when depositing.

FreePlay expires within 14 days of granting.

FreePlay is valid for Multihand Blackjack only.

FreePlay wins are granted only after the member has finished playing the entire FreePlay amount.

Maximum wins generated using FreePlay are equal to the amount of FreePlay granted, unless you hit the Jackpot.

888Casino games overview

With more than 300 games currently available to play, there is plenty of choice for all types of players. Games are easily accessible and divided into neat categories including slots, Jackpots, Video Poker, Table Games and Live Casino. Slots make up a large proportion of the games available at over 180 including 30 jackpot slots. There are both daily and progressive jackpot amounts to be won, sometimes reaching into the millions. An interesting feature of the 888Casino game collection is that a number of games can be played in free money mode, giving customers the chance to try out and familiarize themselves with the collection before moving on to spending any real money.

888Casino – Games Selection


One of the top features of 888Casino is how many slots are recognizable. With over 100 slots to choose from including exclusives such as Millionaire Genie, Aztec Realm and Party Pigs combined with a number of other branded slots, customers will feel at home immediately.


From the 100+ slots currently available, 38 of them are jackpot games. The jackpots can vary but at the time of writing we found the following amounts available to win at the upper end of the scale:

  • Mega Fortune £2,144,247
  • Millionaire Genie £1,684,441
  • Irish Riches  £1,684,441
  • Rise of the Pharaohs  £1,684,441
  • Aztec Realm £381,889

Table games

888Casino offers Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat and Poker. Surprisingly and with a tinge of disappointment, there was no Craps available to play. There are plenty of variations of each game available to play with both European and French Roulette and Multihand, American and Super Stakes variations for fans of Blackjack.

888Casino – American Blackjack

Live casino games

Experience the thrill of live casino with 888Casino offering a fully interactive experience, where the customer will be welcomed by professional dealers. All the action will be live streamed and customers can head over to the Live Casino page from the left hand navigation to enjoy one or more of:

  • Roulette
  • Blackjack
  • Baccarat
  • Poker
  • Live Game Shows
  • Elite Lounge (offering exclusive Roulette and Blackjack tables with higher limits)
888Casino – Live Casino Games

Live dealers are all highly professional and friendly. You can interact with them via the chat facility to answer any questions or engage in some banter!

Video poker

Strangely Video Poker is not found on the homepage or the left hand navigation. After a little digging  under Casino Games and the Poker filter, we did find some available.

888Casino – Poker and Video Poker Options

With only three video poker games to choose from, 888Casino falls rather short in this area. The Video Poker games on offer were Jacks or Better, Joker’s Wild and Tens or Better.

Payout rates

An important factor for new players to take into account is the Return-to-Player (RTP) or pay out rates. This can be a good indicator of the fairness and integrity of games, and the casino overall. Any self-respecting casino will list the theoretical RTP of its games as well as publishing actual payout rates as certified by independent testing authorities. In this respect we give 888Casino the thumbs up. It includes Return-to-Player ratios in its game descriptions and also publishes its actual payout rates as tested by eCOGRA. The most recent report showed an overall payout rate of 96.6% across all games.

  • Classic Slots 93.3 – 96.3%
  • Video Slots 91.9 – 97.15%
  • Roulette 94.7 – 97.3%
  • Blackjack 99.4 – 99.6%
  • Table Games 97.3 – 99.7%
  • Video Poker 96.4 – 99.3%
  • Scratch Cards 90.5 – 92.1%
  • Arcade Games 90.1 – 96.6%

When it comes to classic table games such as Blackjack and Roulette, the theoretical RTP tends to be in the high nineties and the main variable will be the particular rules for that game. This also holds true for games such as Baccarat, Craps and Video Poker. However with Slots there can be a much bigger variance in the payout rates, with some reaching over 97%, but also as low as 92%. The latest independent eCOGRA payout report showed the actual payout rate for classic slots to be 93.61%, with video slots producing a slightly higher return to player rate of 94.97%.

Safety & security

888Casino handles thousands of transactions a day from satisfied players across the world, so it is safe to assume it has a sophisticated level of safety and security. For starters, it is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission who ensure operators are working to the highest operational and ethical standards in the industry.

Additionally, customer details such as when deposits are made have several added layers of security including 3-D Secure for Visa and MasterCard debit cards.

Device options

888Casino is accessible on all devices including desktop, mobile and tablet. The mobile experience is not compromised, with a great user experience and optimized journey allowing customers to take 888Casino with them anywhere they go.

Fans of apps will also be in for a treat, as the 888Casino app is available on both the Apple and Google Play stores. The iOS app currently holds an excellent rating of 4.4 out 5, placing it 4th in online casino apps. The Google Play app fares a little less well with a disappointing 2.7 out of 5 rating.

VIP club

There are three levels of membership available for customers wanting to feel that little bit more special and become a VIP. The three tiers, all by invitation only are VIP, VIP Gold and VIP Platinum. Some of the benefits listed for becoming even a tier 1 VIP are:

  • VIP Welcome Bonus – A special one-off bonus.
  • Increased deposit limits .
  • VIP promotions – Hi-tech gadgets, TVs, laptops, jewellery, weekend getaways in exclusive giveaways.
  • Invitations hospitality events – From sports events and concerts to city breaks and luxury holidays.
  • A personal Account Manager and exclusive access to VIP support teams.
  • VIP High Stake tables – If you want to bet big, we let you!

Customers interested (or think they are important enough to be a VIP) should email the team [email protected] for further information.

888Casino contact & customer service

Customers can get in touch with a Live Support agent 24/7 and our interaction with them when we had an issue with depositing was excellent and very professional. There is also an extensive self-service help section available where customers can find information and answers to an array of questions. There is also an option to contact customer service via an online form or by Email [email protected]. The contact number we found after extensive searching +44 2034 781878 is available between 10am to 6pm.

Software & game developers

The software powering a large part of 888Casino is its own proprietary software provided by Dragonfish. This has enabled them to design and develop their own unique games rather than rely on third party suppliers. For example games such as Millionaire Genie, Greedy Dragon and A Nightmare on Elm Street are not available at the numerous PlayTech powered casinos. In addition 888Casino has topped up its own games with some of the most popular games from other leading software providers to provide a complete gaming solution to its customers.

888casino Verdict

888Casino has rightly gained a reputation as one of the biggest and best online casinos out there and our experience with the website was largely positive. With a good variety of games including some exclusive slots not available anywhere else, they have clearly set themselves apart from the competition. A good range of welcome bonuses are offered to entice new customers to the site, although in keeping with a number of other competitors the wagering requirements for the bonuses are becoming highly onerous.

Customers should also enjoy playing at 888Casino on the move, with a great iOS app also backed up with a fully immersive mobile and tablet version of the casino. With strong customer support via live chat, email and telephone customers should always feel they are being looked after at this leading online casino destination.
