Aging like fine wine - straight into vinegar.
“20 years of excellence.” Then why does this site suck so much? The website acts more as an annoying advertisement - every stupid green button you click is just a “Play now” button, devoid of actual useful information. The welcome bonus is pretty good, with x30 wagering requirements (x40 for Neteller deposits). The worst part is that this casino has some nice games and their live dealer section is highly rated. We just wish they’d get on par with their live casino and get up-to-date with 24/7 live chat options.

888 Casino Review
Ah, 888 Casino - a bastion of online gambling. These guys have been kicking it for over 20 years now and you’d think that after so much experience, they’d know they need to stick with the times and constantly revamp and reinvent themselves to keep players coming. While the game selection is good and they’ve got the games people want to play - 888 Casino somehow still manages to screw a lot of shit up.
The site design for example - why? This looks like a site created by a student just starting to dabble in HTML and CSS. Nothing screams “Ignore me!” louder than a crappy and uninspiring site design. When you have a smaller than average gaming library, you really need to step it up in other areas.
“Even with great games, 888 Casino still manages to screw a lot of shit up.”
Banking: Without completely shitting all over this place, we need to give credit where it is due: they do have strict audits that they pass consistently, and are fully licensed for people to play games there. On top of that, there are a number of ways to do your banking (with many popular methods like PayPal, Neteller, and Mastercard).
Customer Support: But on that note, we have to talk shit again: no live chat options. Are you fo’shizzles, 888 Casino? In fact, as far as we can tell - player support amounts to sending an e-mail and hoping you get a response in 3 days.
Games and Software Variety
What makes this review even more scathing is the fact that there are good games here. The proprietary software from 888 Casino (Random Logic Software) is cool. They offer games from other big providers like WMS and Net Entertainment, so why can’t they take the extra effort to match the quality games on offer? Anyway, here are some examples of what you’ll get:
- Slots: Jack Hammer, The Big Lebowski, Raging Rhino;
- Table Games: Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, Oasis Poker;
- Video Poker: Deuces Wild, Aces & Faces, Tens or Better;
- Progressive Jackpots: Millionaire Genie, Irish Riches, Pirates Millions;
Mobile and Live Gaming Options
There is a completely functioning mobile version of the website. It looks marginally better than the main website. Anyway, you have to sign up and then you’ll have access to a selection of popular games - mostly slots - that you can play anywhere.
“The Live Dealer section of the site gets a rated highly in player reviews.”
A lot of buzz from 888 Casino actually comes from their live casino. You’ve got options for roulette, blackjack, caribbean stud poker, three card poker, casino hold’em, and even ultimate Texas hold’em. There is even an “Elite Lounge” for the elitists among you. (You know who you are.)
Promotions and Bonuses
For new players, you’re looking at a 100% bonus up to €140. That means if you were to deposit something like €40, you’ll play with €80. Likewise, if you deposit €140, you’ll get €280 to play with. Read the terms and conditions, because depending on how you made your deposit, you could have to wager 30 to 40 times to meet the requirements (40x applies to Neteler deposits).
They also have an €88 no-deposit bonus. Sounds cool, doesn’t it? Just sign up and get it for free. Yeah, right. First, it is only available in a couple of countries. Second, everything you win from it will get 30x wagering attached. Third, the winnings from it are capped at €15. Nice...
We are of mixed opinion. The games are good, really. A lot of good things can be said for the live games and the game selection here, but that goodness is at the center of a steamy shit sandwich. We felt like we were constantly being forced to play games with “Play now” buttons and hot links to “Play” everywhere. The whole thing felt quite impersonal and off putting. A major thing to really keep in mind is the somewhat trivial attitude they have about player service.
You probably won’t go wrong playing here, but don’t expect a welcoming red carpet or withdrawal payments to be done in a timely manner.
