888 Casino Review

888 Casino Summary

Launched in 1996, 888 Casino On Net has become perhaps the best known online casino. It's software uniquely allows you to play with your friends on reserved tables and offers the best rules on Craps. But is let down by average software playability and an annoying dealer voice which sounds like Michael Jackson (thankfully you can change it to another).

Love: Generous bonus terms - 3x Odds bets on Craps

Hate: Below average software - Dealer voice

Awards: Best Craps

Bonuses & Promotions - 888 Casino

Generous bonus terms

You would be forgiven for thinking that 888 Casino's bonus of 20% on your initial deposit (up to $200) was a modest offer, but since the wagering requirement is only 2x the bonus ($400 of wagers for the $200 bonus) this is the best bonus going so long as you're willing to put your money on the table.

Regular promotions

888 Casino keeps a bulletin board of the various promotions on offer in the coming weeks, usually there's a promotion going every other day. While they vary in their quality they are generally better than many of the gimmicky 'prize draw' competitions run by other casinos. You can find out more in their 'player's club' section their website.

They also run the typical loyalty scheme where you get $1 back for every for every $1,000 wagered but this goes up to $1.50 if you are invited to become a VIP member.

Games - 888 Casino

Below average software

888 Casino On Net features 28 games which cover all the essentials and uniquely allows you to play with friends on reserved tables. However the Random Logic software that powers the casino seems to lack that realism you get from Wargerlogic casinos or the advanced betting features of Microgaming casinos. It also has perhaps the worst female dealer voice which is like having Michael Jackson being your croupier (thankfully you can change it to the slightly better male dealer voice).

Best for Craps

888 does redeem itself by offering the lowest house edge on Craps. In their version a player can make 3x odds bets (supplementary bets) on Craps which takes the house edge down to 0.34% (you can read more in our Craps section).

Banking - 888 Casino

'Everyway imaginable and free'

Casino On Net is leaving no stone unturned when it comes to making it easy to deposit your money. They accept virtually every payment method going (subject to restrictions on certain countries) and generally insist on paying out their winnings using the same method.

Cashing out takes between 1-2.5 wks depending on the method which is quite a while to wait if you have a big payout owing to you, however we are pleased to find there are no processing charges for making withdrawals no matter the method you use.
