Simon’s 888 Casino Review

This is the official logo of one of the 888 properties, namely the online casino of the 888 gambling group. The picture consists of the word "888 casino" written in green letters over a black and green background. Under the picture, on this page you can read the review of 888 casino, sportsbook, poker platform and you can watch a video review as well.

888 casino, bingo, sportsbook, poker platform review

Summary: 888casino (formerly Casino-on-Net) is the flagship online casino of the 888 Group (parent company: 888 Holdings Plc.). The 888 brand consist of more than just an online casino, they also operate the following:

  • a poker network (888poker, All American Poker Network)
  • a sportsbook (888sports)
  • an online bingo platform (888bingo, Winkbingo, Tastybingo, Bingostreet, Redbusbingo, Bingoloft, Bingofabolous, Poshbingo, BBQbingo, Bingoballroom, Bingohearts, Celebbingo, Spybingo, Scarybingo, Daisybingo, Bingohearts and 888ladies)

 

/Comment: You probably noticed that 888 owns many digital bingo platforms. It’s actually genius marketing strategy, they buy often struggling, smaller bingo websites, and they “upsell” the user base (upsell means: they bombard them with targeted ads with personalized offers, and try to make them register at the other 888 properties as well, where they generate more profit). This way they have access to both a database of potential marketing targets and also able to upsell some of them right away (and probably many more later on).

And because thees are bingo websites they can acquire them for a fraction of the cost of an online casino.

I assume once they milked these bingo sites dry they will merge them, there is no point maintaining this many. So don’t register at any of the bingo sites apart from 888bingo, very soon they will merge them./

This review will focus on 888casino but we will mention the other platforms as well, when it”s relevant. Because you can instantly switch between platforms and use your players account on all of the corr 888 gambling websites (these are: 888poker, 888sports, 888casino, 888bingo, you might need to create a separate account to access the others).

888 casino is a very well known online casino that has been around since 1998,  the company and the casino are considered veterans of the sector and they are one of the biggest online gambling brands out there. Therefore, you are are very likely have already at the very least seen them around.

All of the core 888 gambling platforms are very clean, professional, and the company behind them is a very reliable. In my experience, they always gone above and beyond of what is expected of them in terms of laws, regulations, license, and ethical conduct. And even though they have been around since 1998 they have a good track record and they haven’t been involved in any scandal.

/Comment: This is quite a rarity, most of the older brands have been embroiled in multiple scandals over the years, but 888 seem to have an okay reputation. At  the very least there is no trace of any involvement in any scandal. It’s possible that they have been involved in something in early days of the internet, but no trace of remains anymore.

If you know of any thing, please let us know in the comments section below. Thank you./

I highly recommended the group as a whole for their professional business conduct and really good gambling websites (this is only true for the core websites, some of the acquired websites are low quality, I don’t recommend any of the non-core platforms). Professional attitude and modern state of the art platforms characterize the 888 brand.

I award them +1 point for these, right off the bat.

/Comment: 888casino is officially spelled like that, not as 888 casino, it’s not a typo. It’s written as 888 Casino in the title because writing ‘888casino Casino Review’ in a title would be against the guidelines of search engines (especially Google) and it would result in this review being filtered out as spam./

None of the core 888 gambling websites accept US players (including 888casino) for legal reasons. Only some of their subsidiaries do, e.g.:  All American Poker Network.


888 casino licence: 888 casino group has quite a few gambling licences across all the properties but their main gambling licence is the Gibraltar one. Additionally, they have many local European gambling licences and a UK and Malta one, and some of the subsidiaries have US gambling licences (Delaware, Nevada).

In operation since: 1997


Personal involvement: I was a player of this group for more than 6 years (including 888casino, 888poker and 888sports). I’m quite satisfied with my experience with them over the years, and right now they are my personal favourite.

They were already huge and well-known at time I joined around 2015, and they have only gotten better and bigger over the years.

Sadly they stopped accepting players from my country due to changes in laws and regulations, sometime a few years back. Therefore I have lost player account sadly (but luckily most of the core websites are accessible without having to register).

Even though their fantastic sports betting and poker platforms are mentioned as well, this review will focus on their online casino.


Ethical business conduct, good track record, properly licensed, reliable, one of the biggest brands, in operation since 1998: +1 points

Conclusion:
If you don’t have the time to read the full review below, just read this short summary:

Casino + sports betting + poker + bingo all-in-one. Very good selection of games Playtech, NetEnt, Red Tiger and many other interesting smaller studios.

Very good casino all around, recommended, 8/10, if you are not already a member it’s worth switching over to this one, probably better than 90% of casinos out there, because it’s such a big brand they can afford to have the best of everything. There is no point in playing in a smaller online casino.

888 Casino does not accept players from:
   

The casino group doesn’t accepts players from the USA.

If you are from the USA I recommend this casino, you can read the full review here. This one accept US players (it’s online casino + sportsbook + poker network, similarly to 888).

 

UPDATE 2022: As some commenters pointed out, there are many negative reviews of the 888 gambling websites. I’m aware of those, but you have to understand that this is pretty common in the gambling industry.

People who lose money playing, played with more than they could afford to lose, did not read the bonus requirements and conditions, gave fake names and addresses during registration, people who don’t understand that online casinos are required by law to ask for ID and sometimes other documents as well (especially in case of players from the UK, blame the UK Gambling Commission and the British nanny state for it), these players always leave bad reviews. It’s not the casino’s fault (except for the casino bonus predatory terms, but sadly every online casino does that, no exceptions sadly, that’s why I recommend avoiding casino bonuses entirely).

EVERY ONLINE CASINO that has been around for 10+ years HAS HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS OF BAD REVIEWS written about them, which are just basically complaints of people, who have lost money, or were too lazy to read, too stupid to understand what they read, or have gambling problems. These complaints are universal and therefore meaningless, read them and you will see they are not real problems with the casino itself. Therefore, I stand by what I said about their good reputation, despite the many complaints online, no need to write additional comments about it. But thank you for taking the time to bring them to my attention, hopefully this explains the situation.

 

888 gambling platform review methodology

Click on the drop-down menu below if you are interested in the review process, methodology, and the system by which each casino is reviewed, scored, compared and evaluated.

And also, you can read the detailed explanation as to why US player accepting casinos, and non US player accepting internet casinos differ so much.

888 digital gambling site review criteria

The picture is comprised of a speech bubble, like the one in comics, with the words "Simon says", a pun, and a play on the name of the blog, which is Simon's Online Casino Gambling Blog and my own name: Simon András Péter (writer, owner and founder of this gambling website). This is the image of the part of my casino reviews, where I explain the differences between US-player-accepting, and non-US-player-accepting digital casino platforms. Next to this picture is my description of my review methodology and explanation of the scoring system and data points analysed.

US vs. non-us casinos

There are two very different types when it comes to online casinos, casinos, which accept US players, and casinos which do not accept US players. 888casino is firmly the latter, and none of the core websites of the 888 group accept players from the United States of America and US territories.

This is a very important distinction to make, because radically different games are available at these platforms for legal reasons, and they should be reviewed differently.

Primarily European (primarily targeting European players, mostly licensed in Europe, or at the very least has EU gambling licenses as well, UK gambling licence often) gambling websites always have better and more games, because software providers, due to licensing and legal issues don’t work with casinos, which accept US players.

And it shows.

A typical US casino has around 350 games, mostly slots, some video poker, some table games. While a typical European casino has about 1000+ games and has interesting unique games as well, including live dealer games, digital sports betting, regular sports betting, poker, digital scratchcards, keno, game show type games like Deal or No Deal etc…, but they don’t accept US players.

Therefore, a US casino is always going to look bad compared to a European online gambling website.

A good US casino would still be only 3/10 if you compared it to European, non-US player accepting casino. And that is why I rate them separately, US casinos are only compared to other USA casinos.

Therefore, when you see a US casino that is 7-8/10 but only has 300 games, this is the reason. It gets a higher score because of the different context, and because it is for different players, who don’t have any other options.

As you can see, US players have it worse, significantly. But, C’est La Vie.

And this is also the reason why I don’t advise non-US players to play in US casinos, ever.

Just wanted to mention this, to avoid confusion as to why a 300 games US casino might get the same score as a EU powerhouse with 1000+ games + sports betting + poker.

/Comment: You can read more about why this is, and about the legal status of domestic and offshore land-based gambling and online gambling in the USA here. Be warned, pretty complicated, dry read./

 

The picture is of a stock photo of a stylized magnifying glass over some cogs. This is the illustration right next to the review and research methodology part. You can read about the review methodology, and scoring system that is used throughout the review, to the right of the picture.

Review methodology

Review methodology: In each section I review one of the primary attributes of the casino, these are:

          • list of countries not accepted;
          • list of games;
          • deposit and withdrawal process and methods;
          • and uniqueness.

 

Each of these aspects then gets points ranging from +2, meaning exceptionally good, to -2, exceptionally bad.

Additionally, at end of the review I go through what I consider to be less important secondary attributes, such as:

  • live support chat;
  • VIP, loyalty program;
  • mobile compatibility;
  • other reviews;
  • bonuses, promotions;
  • reputation.

 

At the end I tally all the points and add/subtract them from 10. This will give the final score of the casino. I use a 1 to 10 scale, 10 being the best and 1 being the worst, no 0 or minus scores.

888 Casino does not accept players from:
   

 

1., Who can play: Let’s start the review by checking whether you can actually play in the online casino or not, here is the list of all the countries 888casino does not not accept players from.

/Clarification: The country of your residence, your official address, what’s on your ID card (or address card if it’s a separate thing in your country) is what you should be checking, not your current residence.

E.g: If you are from the Sweden, but you currently temporarily reside in Germany, you should put down your Sweden address. It’s important, because if you win, they will ask for your ID and/or address card to make sure you are who you said you are on the registration form (this is required by law), and they will check the address on your ID. If it’s not the same as what you put down during registration they will instantly perma-ban you. And all your winnings will be confiscated, no matter how much you won!

Be careful! /

 

888casino prohibited countries and territories

The list of countries 888casino does not accept players from. Click below to expand.

888casino review - list of countries not accepted

 

A long list sadly. -1 points for excessive restriction.

Some of it is not the casino’s fault, it’s the restriction imposed on the casino by their Gibraltar licence.

However, some additional ones were added on top of those. Mostly poorer, developing countries.

/Comment: Even though it’s understandable from a business perspective (they lose money on players who perhaps deposit $5 or less, don’t speak English, and never play again) it’s still a form of digital discrimination. And such practices make it very difficult for players in developing countries to find quality gambling websites, which often pushes them towards low quality, unlicensed gambling websites, which often turn out to be scams./

 

Summary:

Accessibility, number of countries accepted: -1

 

2., Games: The second most important thing to players is the number, and also the quality of the games.

Some casino game developers are just better than others, Net Ent slots are magnificent HD masterpieces, whereas e.g.: Betsoft games are not exactly bad, but they are of a much lower quality. Therefore, not just the total number, but also the quality of games is very important.

888casino has 1000+ casino games, more than most other online casinos, and they are also from the best casino software providers, namely:

Net Entertainment, NextGen, IGT, Amaya, Merkur, Scientificgames, Endemol, Evolution Gaming, Playtech, Red Tiger and many other interesting smaller studios (e.g.: Blueprint, Gamesos, Electarcade, Random Logic Section8 Studio).

888casino has the most games out of all the casinos reviewed on this site. They also have live dealer games.

Most of these games are mobile compatible, except for the older ones, which are only resized to fit your screen but they are not redesigned for mobile. Very good quality and selection overall.

+Extra: There is a demo mode, you can try out most games without registration. Sadly, this is becoming increasingly rare as most of the major brands aggressively push visitors towards registration and getting rid of the demo mode is sadly becoming ubiquitous.

Sports betting: 888 also has a very active sports betting platform as well (they also operate land-base bookmakers, they bought William Hill for £2.2 billion*). 888 primary focuses on European sports. It has a very big selection of sports to bet on, even the less popular sports are represented, e,g,: badminton, cricket, snooker, greyhound racing. There is also in-play betting (a.k.a. live betting) mostly for European football matches and lately there is e-sports betting as well, where you can bet on Dota 2, CS:GO, LoL, Starcraft 2 etc…

The live streaming and the interface is really high quality, just like the rest of the website, but you need a fast internet access to really enjoy to the fullest. Also, HD streaming might not work on most mobile devices, depends on your hardware and internet connection.

Source:*The Guardian – Gambling firm 888 buys William Hill International in £2.2bn deal

Poker: The poker network of 888 is one of the biggest in the world, with over 10 million registered members worldwide.

Therefore there are always games in any category you can imagine (the least active period is during weekdays, during European work hours, that’s when it’s the least active, not surprising considering most of the payers are European).

The level of play is varied, but 888poker is home to many professional and hardcore poker players with 10+ years of experience, therefore the skill level of the players is higher than many of the smaller networks. However, the level of play ranges from soft to hard, with tournaments and high stakes are usually where the better players are, and there are more casuals during the weekends.

The interface is gorgeous and mobile compatible, works on most devices and browsers and platforms. Many types of poker games are available: Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, 5 Card Stud, 7 Card Stud, Razz, 5 Card Draw etc…

 

Summary:

1000+ casino games from the best developers + great sports betting and poker sections: +2

Demo mode: +1

—–

Total: +3

 

3., Deposit and withdrawal options:

The third most important thing to players are the accepted payment methods. You obviously can’t win anything unless you bet actual money.

Let’s take a look at the available deposit methods at 888:

  • Nordea (minimum: £10, time: up to 10 minutes)
  • PurplePay (minimum: £10, time: up to 10 minutes)

 

Great, quite a lot of different options, and they accept credit cards, wire transfer and paypal, which are the most important.

They don’t yet accept bitcoin or any cryptocurrency directly.

Accepted currencies: EUR, SEK, NOK, DKK, USD, GBP, CSK, PLN.

 

Let’s see what the casino has when it comes withdrawal methods:

  • Visa LogoVisa (minimum: £15, time: up to 8 days)
  • MasterCard (minimum: £15, time: up to 6 days)
  • Bank Wire Transfer (minimum: £15, time: up to 10 days)
  • Skrill (minimum: £15, time: up to 48 hours)
  • Neteller (minimum: £15, time: up to 48 hours)
  • PayPal (minimum: £15, time: up to 48 hours)
  • MuchBetter (minimum: £15, time: up to 48 hours)

 

In almost all online casinos, the the deposit and withdrawal methods are different, which is really annoying to players, 888casino is no an exception.

The three main methods (wire transfer, credit cards, Paypal) are all available, for both depositing and withdrawing money +1.

However, the most important thing is that they have no withdrawal fees, and the minimums are very low. +1

 

Depositing and withdrawal methods: +1
No withdrawal fees: +1


Total: +2

 

4., Uniqueness: And the last one I analyze in an internet casino is innovation, unique and interesting new online gambling games and features. Anything that makes you “Wow, that’s amazing.”.

Does 888casino has the so called ‘wow-factor’?

Yes, actually!

There are a few things that make this casino unique and stand out: 1000 games from the best developers, one of the best and biggest game selection.

It’s also an all-in-one gambling destination with casino + sports betting + poker + scratchcards + live dealers + every other type of gambling you can think of, they have it.

These things make it unique, it does “wow” me in multiple ways, therefore a +2 is awarded.

/Comment: The only two casino on this website that gets a +2 in this category btw../

Unique and stands out: +2,

 


[plain]

The following are less important optional factors, but still contribute to the total score:

 

-Live support chat:  A pretty decent 24/7 live support chat, you can also call them and write them emails, +1 point.

 

VIP, loyalty program: They have a very detailed, extensive loyalty program called The VIP Casino Club, but I never qualified therefore I can not review it.

Apart from the VIP Club you can collect comp pints, but everything you get for them has wagering limitations and playthrough requirements, just like regular bonuses, therefore they are pretty useless. I recommend not using them, -1 point.

 

-Mobile compatibility: The newer games are mobile compatible, most games released in the past 10 years work great on mobile devices tablet, cross platform and cross browser compatible and pretty user-friendly. Of course you can tell the older games were not designed for such small screens originally. But that’s hardly the casino’s fault. Not to mention, it’s just not realistic to expect the same gaming experience on mobile as on PC.

It is as mobile compatible as a casino can be. All the games are instant-play, accessible right from the browser, no download necessary (on mobile it is necessary, you have to download the app). No point is awarded, because mobile compatibility nowadays is a must, not an extra.

 

-Other reviews: I always check what other review sites say about a casino, to make sure my personal experiences are not out of the line, and to check whether they have been involved in a scandal or not.

I expected 8/10 and 7/10 reviews for 888, but I was looking around and there were some 2/10 and 1/10 reviews there as well, claiming outlandish things like:

  • it has no welcome bonus for new players (not true, and even if it was true, so what? – a bonus is only good if it has a decent wagering requirement, which none of them has for many years now, it’s not that important, in fact I recommend not using any bonuses anywhere);
  • or that 888casino operates illegally (absolutely not true, in fact they have multiple gambling licenses, more than most online casinos I have played in);
  • and my favourite, a 1/10 review giving it the lowest possible score because “I’ve lost money, therefore the games must be rigged” :D.

 

But this is common, all online casinos have such “reviews” about them online, in fact, most reviews are like this, but these are not genuine, these are impulse driven complaints. And as a gambling blogger I can not take them seriously. None of their claims are true, and you should never paly with more than you can actually afford to lose, because you are going to lose, most of the time. You can count on winnings (unless you use advantage gambling methods, details can be found here).

Anyway, apart from these usual complaints, there is no indication of any scandal or anything shady. There is nothing really wrong with this casino, most online gambling platforms should actually try to emulate most of what they do, especially the ethical business approach, getting all the required licenses too not just one main gambling license, like 90% of other casinos.

 

-Casino bonuses: 888casino has a welcome bonus with a 30x playthrough requirement right now, the welcome bonuses for new players are usually around that, just like most other casinos of this group or anywhere else.

/Comment: It’s a bad bonus, anything 30x or above is considered a bad bonus. Sadly there aren’t any promotions under 30x for years now, due to the higher taxes and increased regulations, fees, licence costs. This how casinos try to recuperate the increasing operating costs. Therefore I do not recommend using any bonuses at all, at any online casino./

-1 is deducted for this.

[/plain]

 

Total score: 888casino gets 8/10, 4 stars, highly recommended. This is the best online casino platform on the website currently.

FAQ – frequently asked questions about 888 online casino

 

FAQ section

The following are some of the frequently asked questions about 888casino. Click on the dropdown menu below to see the questions and answers.

Q&A

Is 888 Casino legit?

Yes 888casino is a legitimate licensed casino with a Gibraltar, Malta and UK license (and other smaller local European licenses, which are required by EU law), which is in operation since 1997 (originally as Casino-on-Net, that digital casino is not longer in operation, renamed after an acquisition).

Does 888casino have poker?

Yes, based on legitimate reviews online, and our personal testing and review, we are convinced that 888 is a digital casino you can trust. It pays players their winnings. However, keep in mind that due to various laws and limitations placed upon them by the licenses they operate under, the payment processors, the EU laws (in case of EU players + extra steps in case of the UK, because of the extra strict UK laws and the complicated relationship of the UK and EU after Brexit) and various anti money laundering laws, withdrawal can take 8+ days, and they require ID, and sometimes other official documents as well (e.g.: birth certificate, utility bill, address card, proof of legitimate source of funds, bank statement, depending on your local laws and regulations pertaining to your jurisdiction). This is not the casino's fault, these are mandatory and required by law (90% of the complaints online are about withdrawal speed and required documents). Even though these are annoying and take a lot of time these are actually a sign of a trustworthy casino. Unlicensed, illegally operating scam casino sites usually don't bother to fake these required validation steps and processes.

Does 888casino pay players their winnings if they have won?

888casino pays players their winnings. However, keep in mind that due to various laws and limitations placed upon them by the licenses they operate under, the payment processors, the EU laws (in case of EU players + extra steps in case of the UK, because of the extra strict UK laws and the complicated relationship of the UK and EU after Brexit) and various anti money laundering laws (which apply to all players regardless of your country of origin), withdrawal can take 8+ days, and they require ID, and sometimes other official documents as well (e.g.: birth certificate, utility bill, address card, proof of legitimate source of funds, bank statement, depending on your local laws and regulations pertaining to your jurisdiction). This is not the casino's fault, these are mandatory and required by law (90% of the complaints online are about withdrawal speed and required documents). Even though these are annoying and take a lot of time these are actually a sign of a trustworthy casino. Unlicensed, illegally operating scam casino sites that will never pay you your winnings usually don't bother to fake these required validation steps and processes.

Does 888casino try to scam players with bonus terms and conditions?

Not more than every other digital casino. Sadly players do not read bonus terms and conditions, ever, and therefore they often are surprised that they can not withdraw their winnings. Even though 888casino does not hide the requirements, it certainly does not do more than the other online casinos to let players known about them. But they are not trying to hide them either. We recommend not using any casino bonuses because of the universally bad playthrough limitations and requirements nowadays, which is not unique to 888casino.

Thank you for visiting:
This is a selfie of the author and owner of Simon's Casino Gambling Blog, me, Simon András Péter, a.k.a. by the internet pseudonym SimonTheSorcerer, owner of Simon's Online Marketing Kft. This is the homepage of my online casino gambling blog, you can see what's on the website, the links to all the different sections of the website.

That's me, Simon, thank you for visiting.

Don't worry, this is not an ad! ;) Just wanted to make sure to tell you that I'm glad you visited this gambling blog. I'm Simon, the only author and the man behind this blog (if you are interested, my unusual life story can be found on the homepage, under the "About me" dropdown section).
I'm an independent gambling blogger since 2012. In this sector dominated by huge media companies, casino operators and online marketing networks, who can easily spend $ millions on their online gambling blogs, it's not easy for an independent nobody like me to survive. It took me about 6 years, working my ass off, to even have a chance to be noticed by visitors like you. I'm lucky enough that for a few years now, I make enough money to be able to do this full time (before that, I had part-time jobs, ghost writing gigs, online marketing this and that).
Now I can finally do this full time, thanks to visitors like you! And it means a lot! If you are interested, please bookmark this site (no social media profiles, I no longer have any, but please feel free to share anything on any social media networks, if you still use them). I don't have any money to advertise, and if you have a personal blog, any social media profile, please mention my gambling blog and link back to it. This the only way for a small website like this to grow. Thank you!

Logo of Kiva.org. You can read about my non-profit activity right next to the picture.
Charity: As a way to help others, to give back, I sometimes donate to Kiva. If you click on the ads on the website, I make some money. And in a good month, if I make more than my expenses, I donate to people and projects on Kiva.
Kiva helps young entrepreneurs in developing countries, which is an issue close to my heart for obvious reasons. If you have the means, please sign up with the revolutionary non-profit company Kiva.org and help people lift themselves out of poverty, through hard-work, and an initial investment (non-profit loan). These non-profit loans encourage entrepreneurship and hard work instead of creating a dependent class that is afraid to get a job, or start a business (because if they did, they would no longer get support and free money, disincentivezing hard work and entrepreneurship). This is the right way to fight poverty in developing countries (or anywhere else really), and if this is something you are interested in, and if you would like to know more, or to help out, please check out Kiva.org here. Thank you!
