888 Casino Welcome Bonus
888 Casino welcome all new players to the casino floor with a spin on their own Wheel of Fortune for a chance to win up to £888 in bonus money - before you’ve even made a deposit. This is a generous offer for new players, with a minimum prize of £15 freeplay guaranteed. Be aware though, that your credit is in bonus funds, not real cash (as if!) and requires a 30x wagering requirement before it, or any winnings, can be withdrawn.
When you’re ready to deposit, there are two available bonus packages to choose from.
The basic Double Your Money offer gives you a 100% boost on your first deposit up to a maximum of £100. To receive this, just make sure you click the Claim Bonus link in the cashier, and then the link in the email you receive, so that the bonus is credited to your account.
For those more ambitious players, a Premimum welcome package is on offer, worth £1,500 in bonuses across your first 7 days from sign up. The overall value here is high, though the match percentages are perhaps not as generous as you might expect - 30% of your deposit on deposits two to five. Nevertheless, £1,500 is still a competitive overall package and will give you some great playing time.
To go Premium, you MUST make sure you use the bonus code Welcome1 when you make your first deposit at 888 Casino. Thereafter, use the codes Welcome2 to Welcome5. If you don’t, you won’t be eligible and you will only receive the basic package of 100% up to £100.
Also note that Premium package bonuses are not credited until you have wagered 3 times your deposit in each case. You must then wait up to 72 hours to receive your bonus.
So, all in this is a strong welcome offer, with something for the casual gamer, as well as the VIP player. It seems a shame though, and a surprise considering 888’s reputation, that for the Premium package you must jump through additional hoops and then wait up to 72 hours for your bonuses to be credited.

Promotions and Rewards
For a regular player at 888 Casino there are a standard mix of promotions and offers available. Here is a sample:
On the 21st of each month play Beat the Dealer, a simple promotion offer of 20% up to £300 freeplay when you deposit using code Blackjack20. Don’t worry, you don’t have to spend your deposit on Blackjack to qualify for the bonus.
On the 1st day of each month, just log in for a chance to share £888 in free play money - with 26 lucky players each being credited with a share of the pot. Players are chosen at random from those who log in on the day.
Whilst these offers are good, from a customer’s perspective, it is a little frustrating that for any deposit bonus offer at 888 you are required to meet wagering requirements on your deposit before you even qualify for the bonus. Almost all online casinos these days have found a way to protect themselves against bonus hunters without needing a condition like this. So why not 888?
Getting to the heart of things now, 888Casino is built on the company’s own in-house platform, provided by 888 subsidiary, Dragonfish. And what does this mean for the customer? Well it means you get something like a ‘unique’ experience. Unlike all the Microgaming and Playtech brands out there, all mining the same games and the same platform features as each other, 888 can build a customer experience on a product no-one else shares. So, the feel, the look, the configuration, and of course the game selection, all feel a little bit different. And in this day and age, that’s no bad thing.
It’s hard to beat 888 Casino when it comes to the scale and breadth of the games on offer. Most of the major game providers are here, including NetEnt (Starburst and Gonzo’s Quest), IGT, Cryptologic and Blueprint, alongside games from 888’s own in-house games team, Dragonfish.
Top titles for slots fans include: Twin Spin, Irish Riches, Zeus III, Jack and the Beanstalk, Jack Hammer, Rainbow Riches, Rise of the Pharaoh’s, Gods of Gold, Nightmare on Elm Street and Millionaire Genie.
For those who prefer the hard stuff, there are table games in traditional flash format, as well as the now ubiquitous live dealer suite. Top games include: Multihand Blackjack, Low Stakes Roulette, Live Baccarat, Live Hold Em, Live Carribean Stud Poker and Live Ultimate Texas Hold Em.
888 have had 20 years to perfect their game selection and this is borne out in a world class product offering.
Live Dealer Suite
For those who love the new Live Dealer experience, and it is one of the fastest growing areas of the online casino industry, 888 have built their own suite of branded tables, with superb service from their trained croupiers. The games on offer include Ultimate Texas Hold Em, Caribbean Stud Poker, Three Card Poker and Baccarat.
888 is a massive operation, a London Stock Exchange Listed business, and operates under a Gibraltar and UK Gaming License. As you would expect, their customer support is very accessible. You can reach them by live chat on site, email, or by 24/7 phone support.
The also have presence on Google, Facebook and Twitter.
As a fully international operator, reaching out to players in a massive range of countries, 888 has built a cashier that supports almost any payment method you could imagine, including Paypal, Neteller, Skrill, uKash and Wire Transfer. Neteller customers should take note that wagering requirements on bonuses acquired through Neteller deposits are generally higher (40x) than those from other payment mechanisms.
888 is one of the few casino brands to still offer a download version of it’s software. If you choose to play their selection of games through this, the flash desktop version, or the mobile version of the product, the experience is one of the best in the industry. 888 have managed to provide a simple user interface and it’s easy to find the games you want, access your account, and contact support.
