888Casino revamped their casino infrastructure recently and it’s worked well, with a superb new lobby showing off some great slots and table games.
However, now that they’re adding to their slot collection with some high profile 3rd party games and developing new, higher spec games of their own, they’re becoming an ever bigger force to be reckoned with.
888 won Online Casino of the Year at the Totally Gaming Awards in 2012, which shows just how well received their recent overhaul has been.
Generally speaking they’ve always been held in high esteem with hardcore gamers, who appreciate their fast cashout speeds and their many years of experience (888 launched in 1997).
There’s also a section on 888’s site devoted entirely to raising awareness of underage and problem gambling, as well as news and articles of the company’s social involvement with the communities that their offices are located near to.
" 888 have traditionally used their own, in-house software but they’re buying games in from IGT now, making membership of their site an increasingly attractive proposition.
Signing up is quick and easy, and once you’re in you can customise the lobby by dragging and dropping your favourite games into a set of boxes, so they’re on standby for you whenever you want to get to them quickly.
Practice play is permitted on all slots and instant play is now promoted equally in line with the download version of the casino, so 888 are firmly in the 21st century and can rightly claim to be up there with the major high street betting chains when it comes to credibility.
888 have always offered a highly unique set of games from their proprietary developer Random Logic, and there have been some interesting new additions recently: A Nightmare on Elm Street sees 888 moving into branded slot territory.
This is a niche generally associated with higher profile software developers, but 888 have matched the big boys with this slot which is quite a coup as the Freddy Krueger series its one of the most popular franchises of all time.
The game stays faithful to its source material, imbuing players with a creeping sense of menace that adds to the tension from the gameplay for a highly immersive, nerve-jingling few hours of enjoyable, creepy fun.
Dawn of the Dinosaurs and Café De Paris are given similarly lavish treatment with state-of-the-art rendering, intro movies and some great bonus features so be sure to check them out - but don’t miss out on the games that have been bought in.888’s catalogue is now supplemented by slots from IGT, which means you can enjoy some all-time classics like the wonderfully trippy Alice’s Wonderland and Cleopatra, the most popular land-based slot game of all time.
