A gaming powerhouse in New Jersey, 888Casino prides itself on game variety, safety and an excellent user experience.
New players will get $20 free casino bonus once they've signed up, which is a good way to get yourself acquainted with some of the games on the site. There's no deposit needed at all which is good.
You can also access the $500 welcome bonus after you've made your first deposit, but again do make sure to check the terms and conditions. Members can enjoy deals of the day, and the longer you stay as a member, the more status points you'll get. This is the casino's way of rewarding your loyalty.
The mobile NJ site follows the same design as the main site itself, and is clear and easy to use. The interface is nice and clear and nothing is crammed on or missing from the page. You can sign up and play straight from the mobile site as well, which is a nice option. The app is quick to download, and features all the same services and games as the other two sites. You can download it from either the mobile or the main site as well.
888 has really grown its stable of providers recently, and that's a good thing. That said, there's not that many slots to choose from compared to some other online slot casinos, and having a few more developers getting involved would certainly be a benefit.
You'll find four kinds of casino games at 888Casino, and they're all the staples you’d expect: blackjack, roulette, slots and video poker. We've already looked at the slots in a bit of detail, (although it's worth noting there are a lot of progressive jackpot slots, which is great) so let's move on to the casino staples.
There are two versions of roulette available, both single and double, and the table is laid out nicely so you can see your bets and the action clearly. There's only one version of blackjack, but you can customize various elements of the game to your liking, which is something only available at 888. The video poker is another solid choice, and has its own app so you can play on the go as well.
