888 Slots and Games

The 888 brand is one of the biggest brands in online gambling, and one that has extended its reach into every facet of this industry. Its poker room is now out-performing many large poker networks; its sports book is taking customers away from the biggest names in the industry; and its slot site, 888 Games, is just as big and just as impressive as everything else they have attached their name to.

The Company

888 Holdings is the company behind all 888 sites, which cover all forms of online gam-bling. It was first founded in 1997 and has since grown into one of the biggest forces in the industry. As well as 888 Games, it also owns 888 Casino, which is very similar in nature.

The main difference is that 888 Casino is focused primarily on a small number of exclusive slots, and it is connected to the 888 Sports, 888 Bingo and 888 Poker brands. 888 Games, on the other hand, is a vast site with a huge selection of games, and it stands on its own. 888 Holdings have dubbed 888 Games to be their “casual gaming” platform, although how that differs from 888 Casino, we’re not sure.

888 Casino is also available in many more countries than 888 Games, which is limited to just the United Kingdom and Germany.

The Basics

888 Games is an award wining provider, having been voted the “Best Casino Operator of 2015” by Gaming Intelligence. It’s easy to see how it won this award. We have encoun-tered a number of issues with 888 in the past, from a poker room that is not very Mac friendly, to a sports book that is slow and a casino that is difficult to navigate. But 888 Games feels different to all of that. It’s not slow, it’s not awkward and it really does excel in all areas.

Customer support is bolstered by the vast 888 network, and you won’t have an issue whether you’re using Live chat, email or phone. There are plenty of options for deposit and withdrawals, and there is no shortage of games either, with Microgaming titles aplenty.

There are plenty of promotions available at any given time and 888 Games also offers mobile compatibility. In fact, they seem to have put more into the mobile side of things than they have the desktop site, as it’s much more intuitive.

Features

888 Games is licensed in Gibraltar under the name “Cassava Enterprises”, which is the name that will show up on your credit card/debit card statements. It accepts PayPal, Neteller and other major providers and as well as a host of slots, there are also plenty of card games, keno games, table games and jackpot-specific games.

There is also an interesting “Arcade Games” section, which makes for a unique addition and gives you a chance to play some retro classics, as well as modern slots based on eve-rything from Pac Man to Asteroids.

You don’t need to download any software to play 888 Games. In fact, there is no software to download and their main casino site is entirely web-based. This has always been one of their selling points, although it’s one that is becoming more and more common in the in-dustry anyway.

Unique Software

One of the constants in everything that 888 create is the fact that they always try to add their own touch to everything, and 888 Games is no exception. The majority of slot sites out there use the same software, which is why you see the same games time and time again. 888 Games are a little different though. There are many games you will recognize here, but there are also plenty of proprietary games mixed in, ones that you won’t find an-ywhere else.

It’s rare to see that in this industry, so it should be celebrated. Not all of these games are very good, to be honest, but there are a couple of diamonds in the rough, and when you factor in all of the other great games that you’ll know already (Starburst, Cleopatra, Lepre-chaun’s Luck) it makes for a great combination.
