888.com is the World’s No 1 Online Casino and Poker Room
At only 10 years old 888.com / Casino On Net is not the longest running of the online casinos, but it has earned the right to its claim as being the “world’s number one online casino.”
Some players may not like the fact that playing on the site; whether for practice or for real money requires downloading and installing Casino On Net’s software. The hefty file size (almost 100 Mb) is a breeze if one is using broadband; it becomes a difficult and time consuming task if one has to use a narrowband, dial-up connection. Fortunately there is an animated, ‘no download’ version available.
Payment and withdrawal modes are wide-ranging and easy to accomplish and perform. One the downside 888.com / Casino on Net does not allow US residents to play at its site, and is very stringent about this. Other than that, 888.com / Casino on Net is one online casino that is truly a joy to play at.
Games and Software
Your first ‘sight’ of the casino is a clean game lobby with icons of the different game categories displayed, as well as the number of actual games that can be played under each category (e.g., blackjack has 3 games, ‘classic’ slots has 16 games and so on).
The game lobby also has ‘featured’ jackpots (the Millionaire Genie slot has a progressive jackpot of S3.6 million and counting; Caribbean poker has a pot approaching the million dollar mark), as well as featured games.
Clicking on an icon brings you to another window where the games are displayed; pop-up windows which explain what each game help the novice player in choosing and adapting to the rules of the different games.
Game play is fast; there is almost no waiting time for the game to be uploaded and one can start playing almost immediately. As usual, options for ‘practice’ or ‘real money’ plays are provided; ‘switching’ from practice to real play is a simple step made easier by the range of payment options offered by the site.
Bonuses and Promotions
Promotions and loyalty programs are a key element of Casino on Net. The online casino offers a $200 signup bonus which is actually a match up of a new player’s first deposit (e.g., a payment of $50 gets the member a bonus of $50, or up to $200). Aside from this opportunities for getting additional bonuses abound, from ‘referral fees’ of up to $150 to “888-Day Bonuses” and even a monthly “Tell Us Where You Heard about www.888.com” contest provides more incentive.
