A couple of days ago while writing about what casinos.ie can do for you we mentioned 888 casino as being one of our top three that might be slightly less well known in Ireland so we thought it might be worth taking a closer look. 888 casino is part of the much larger 888.com which is specialised online casino and gambling group offering a full range of sports, poker, bingo and games in addition to the online casino; the online casino has been operational since 1997 and millions of players have experienced the fun and excitement on offer. 888.com is headquartered in Gibraltar and like many others operates under a license issued by the Government of Gibraltar and the holding company has been listed on the London Stock Exchange since 1995. All of this should give confidence that 888 casino is a well run and trusted online casino but there is also membership of e-COGRA which was set up to ensure fair gaming and responsible conduct. The Random Number Generator used by 888 casino is monitored on a monthly basis by international auditors as are the payout percentages. Right now is also a good time to join 888 casino as they have a 100% match on your first deposit on either the instant casino or the download casino up to €140 which is available instantly in your account (of course there are play through requirements) plus 888 casino is giving away 365 free spins (7 each week for a whole year) on slots which could net you €1,000,000. The range of casino games at 888 casino is wide enough for all tastes as are the table stakes which can be virtually as large or as small as you like. The name 888 casino may not spring to mind but it is a very good alternative to the big two in Ireland.
