888 are one of the original founders of online gaming, having been around since the very early days of digital play back in 1997. So with twenty years of history and growth behind them, 888 Holdings are now one of the behemoths of the industry.
888 Casino is a separate portal which can be accessed from the main 888.com site (which, let’s face it, is an easy web address to remember). 888 Holdings own the software providers Dragonfish, so it is no surprise that their expertise is predominantly on display on this site. The range of slots is good, with plenty of the best games designers on board. This means that you get many of the top titles here, such as Gonzo’s Quest, Rainbow Riches and Victorious. Each game has an excellent “Games Info” link, which describes all the game’s features and statistics to help you decide which to take on. Players of traditional table games are catered for too, although the selection is not so extensive. There are around a dozen different formats of Baccarat, Blackjack, Poker and Roulette to choose from. Fans of Poker should note that there is separate portal on the 888.com site dedicated to their favoured game. There was no live gaming at the time of our visit.
This site can be played on any device. Mobile users can play through their browsers using the site’s Flash technology, but there are advantages to downloading the dedicated 888 app.
The site can be accessed more quickly directly from your home screen, and navigation and game play may be smoother.
Payment options are suitably comprehensive, with PayPal and even Diners Club available for players. The minimum deposit of £20 is a little higher than many of its competitors. Withdrawals are limited to £30,000 per month.
Help and support is not exactly extensive. There is a useful, but not comprehensive FAQ section. There is no live chat and no dedicated phone line is advertised. The only obvious way to make contact is via their pre-formatted e-mail form, or by e-mailing directly to [email protected]
For such a big name, this is not one of the better sites to play on. The selection on offer is not massive compared to its major rivals, and contact options are very limited. If you want the security of playing with a big name, any of well-known major high street sports betting franchises are probably a better option.
