888.com / Casino-On-Net Review
888.com, also known as Casino-On-Net, is one of the
largest and most recognized online casinos for European
players and provides a number of gaming services
including the popular poker room, bingo, backgammon and
the new 888Ladies. 888.com is owned by Cassava
Enterprises Limited, a subsidiary of 888 Holdings PLC,
and was released in 1997 making them one of the oldest
online casinos and the company as a whole is traded on
the London Stock Exchange. The casino supports multiple
languages and is available in a full download, an
instant play version and is compatible for your mobile.
Casino-On-Net supports over 40 games with an emphasis
placed on progressive jackpot slots, and in 2007
received the “Top Casino” award from Online Gambling
Magazine. 888.com does not accept US players.
New players will receive a 100% match up to $200 once
you have made your first deposit. This bonus is
relatively easy to clear and will require you to meet
the rollover requirements before you can request a
withdrawal. 888.com is known for their free cash offers,
so we suggest you register with a legitimate email as
these are often provided to regular players on a weekly
or bi-weekly basis. Regular players will also be
enrolled into the casino’s VIP program. The VIP rewards
program features exclusive events, dedicated managers
and additional bonuses for players. For the
remainder of the year every time you make a deposit of
$100 you will receive an additional 100% bonus until you
have received a total of $1400 in bonus money.
The current line-up of casino games features video slots, progressive slots, card and table games as well as video poker. What the casino lacks in game selection they more than make up for prize pools, especially in the progressive slots department. The typical progressive jackpot easily hits the $2,000,000 mark and in total players will have over a dozen different progressive slots to choose from. The software features high quality graphics, top speed and was created to replicate the same quality of gaming you would find at your local casino. In addition to the Top Casino award, 888.com has also been acknowledged by eGaming for the 2007 Best Casino Online award. All of the casinos games are tested by iTechLabs, a third party auditor to ensure fair play and the casino is also a member of eCogra.
The slots are limited to 20+ different machines with the majority of the slot machines offering progressive jackpots. What’s impressive about 888.com is the company does not share a player base or network but has still managed to offer players some of the highest progressive jackpots in the industry. The slot machines can be played for free or for real money with wagers starting at $0.01 per line up to $5. The maximum bet available to be made is $100 by playing the 5 reel, 20 payline slots.
Table and Card Games
888.com supports the standard casino table games with Tri-Card, Pai Gow, Caribbean Stud Poker and Blackjack included. Just like the slot machines you don’t need to wager on these games, they are available for practise and if you’re unsure how to play any of the games, the casino does provide detailed instructions in each of the games they support. Wagering at the table and card games start at $1 and is capped at $300 depending on the game. Free money games are available in the practise mode.
888.com provides a full in house support team for each of the languages they offer and can be reached 24/7 through email, live chat or by using one of the toll free numbers located on the casino website. We do suggest live chat as your first option because the response time is generally quicker than the other two methods available.

common options for Canadian and UK players. Withdrawals
are processed quickly with a 24 – 48 timeframe. Current
