888 Casino is one of the world’s premiere online casino destination. It’s been established since 1997 and has won multiple industry awards and recognition, including the 2013 EGR Casino Operator of the year. You can play 888 Casino online using your desktop PC/Mac or you can download the 888 Casino iOS app.
The iOS app is basically an online casino at the palm of your hand. You can play most games that you find in the desktop version. Each mobile version of the game is optimised for touch enabled device. So all interactions can be done just by tapping, swiping or tilting your device.
One of the coolest feature of the app is the Live game. This is where you can actually watch a live video streaming of the game on your mobile phone. In the desktop version, where the technology is more sophisticated than in the mobile device, you can actually play Poker live in real-time where you can see a video of the dealer in front of you and you can interact with the games as if you were there physically. There are 3 other games (Roulette, Blackjack and Baccarat) that feature the live system. The mobile version features only the Live Roulette. This is very good example of using (I’d dare to say pushing the boundary of) technology to give the most immersive experience to the user, and 888 Casino app has this.
The non-live games are obviously also available, in fact there are more than 20 of these slots, reels, blackjack, roulettes and pokers that you can choose to play.
You have to register to access the games and deposit some money if you want to play along. The App Store description for the app mentions about a practice play, but unfortunately I haven’t found how to do this yet.
Earlier this month 888 Casino released the version 2.0 of its iOS app. The new app features additional video slot games as follows:
- Millionaire Genie
- Big Bang
- Clash of the Titans
- Magic Portals
- Reel Rush
- Snack Time
- Twin Spin
The new version also comes with a new player bonus, which is a 100% matched 1st deposit bonus up to £100. So if you deposit £100, you will get another £100 for free. In addition to this you will get also free £88 bonus. Sadly you can only use this in the Desktop version and not the mobile app.
888 Casino has managed to create a mobile app that is cutting edge, incorporating an immersive experience in its live games. The games are a bit clunky at times (I managed to crash it once and a while) and I wished that they give us some free deposit to play with in the app and just for the desktop. But overall it’s pretty cool casino app and if you like playing these games you should try it.
