If you’re looking for a long-running online casino with an impeccable reputation, you really don’t need to look much further than 888 Casino. It dates back to 1997 and the very early days of online gaming and was developed by two sets of Israeli brothers – Avi and Aaron Shaked and Shay and Ron Ben-Yitzhak. 888 Holdings is the name of the overarching organisation and it’s one of the global leaders in online gaming.
Games and Software
As befits an organisation of the size of 888, many of it’s online slots are developed in-house by Random Logic Software and so there are many you just won’t get to play anywhere else. Other developers such as IGT also feature though and it should go without saying that 888 Casino features a lot of games.
Although 888 Casino may be one of the leaders in the world of online gaming it’s still prepared to offer new and existing players a range of bonuses and other inducements. The most eye-catching is the Wheel Of Fortune offered to all new sign-ups without no deposit necessary – it will award a bonus cash amount of between £15 and £888.
New players who actually deposit can also look forward to doubling their money up to a maximum of $200/£100/€140. On top of these bonuses there’s a wide range of others available including Refer-a-friend, monthly specials and a VIP section.
Longevity is the key to a top notch user experience and 888 Casino has a front page which is easy to navigate and pleasing on the eye. Software downloads and a Mac compatible ‘Instant Play’ button make it a cinch to dive into the games straight away.
A slider at the bottom of the screen highlights the current promotions, recent big winners and the like and below that are all the options you would expect from a top quality casino.
888 Casino has a genuine tablet app rather than an optimised webpage and although it takes a bit longer to access it’s still just a quick download. Once you’re signed in using your desktop account details you can play the slots and other games on your tablet – more are added all the time.
Whichever country you’re from you’ll find a method which suits you whether it’s standard credit payment with Visa or Mastercard, prepayment cards or anything in-between. Some of the methods used to deposit can’t also be used to withdraw money s it’s worth checking the Banking page on the website for more information.
