If Star Trek hadn’t used it first, “To boldly go where no man has gone before” could have easily been the slogan for 888.com and its voyage through the online-casino industry. 888 started far in front of the rest of the Web-gambling pack, and at no point has it let off the gas. Naturally, there’s nothing AceHoyle.com admires more than innovation – especially when it leads to bundles of cash and hours of solid entertainment. Otherwise, we’d have to review NASA’s website next – ain’t it funny, by the way, how the world’s premier geeks could put together such a dull homepage (like, seriously, besides the bean counters working for McDonalds, who cares how much of the American soy crop was lost in ’08)?


888.com or Casino-on-Net.com - “It’s Nobody’s Business But the Turks.”

Albeit the AceHoyle.com staff is showing its age with the comparison, the whole 888/Casino-on-Net name thing is kind of like that old They Might Be Giants song. You see, 888.com is the flagship website for 888 Holdings PLC, an online-gaming company that operates several high-profile gaming websites. The group was founded in 1997 and started running its casino brand, Casino-on-Net.com, that same year. Talk about innovation, 1997 places the site smack in the pre-Jurassic era of online gaming. And to think that before most people even had a mouse to go with their operating systems they could play roulette online at Casino-on-Net.

888 Holdings went public on the London Stock Exchange in late 2005. Doing so was another groundbreaking step because more players felt safe withdrawing and depositing money with an established brand name. As a result, Casino-on-Net netted over 25 million visitors to become the largest online-gaming venue. And, in turn, this firestorm of new members carried over to 888’s other high-profile website, Pacific Poker– which won our No. 2 poker slot, as well as the hearts of millions of players around the world. As for the name game, like any long-standing titan of industry 888 Holdings has caught flak from the envious, and while we here at AceHoyle.com aren’t sure which instance of backbiting caused the company re-dub Casino-on-Net “888.com,” we can tell you that if you have a date at an online casino, there’s a lot more wrong with your geography than semantics….


888.com Promotions and Bonuses

If up to this point you got the feeling that our 888.com review reads too much like a fairytale, watch out because 888.com’s bonus is about to play the role of The Big Bad Wolf: Sad to say, 888.com’s welcome bonus is far from the best out there. Who knows, maybe Casino-on-Net is using a “hard-to-get” strategy. (After all, being the leader of the pack does come with its advantages). Don’t get us wrong, 100 percent up to $200 right through the door is a hellova lot better than any brick-and-mortar casino will ever offer. But when it comes to gambling online, it’s sadder than a Hollywood tearjerker. 888.com promotions, in fact, fail so miserably to compete with the likes of Casino Tropez that we had no choice but to stick it in our No. 2 slot despite its great graphics, amazing sound, inviting interface, etc., etc….


888.com Supports its Customers – and da’ Sports

As we’ve all come to expect from leading gaming sites, a customer-support team is available at 888.com 24/7, offering assistance in 11 different languages by phone, e-mail and live online chat. In a somewhat less expected move, 888.com was also the first online casino to become the main sponsor of major European football clubs such as Middlesbrough of the English Premier League and, later, Sevilla of the Spain’s La Liga. This move made 888.com a household name in Europe, giving its leading brands, Casino-on-Net.com and Pacific Poker, mainstream media attention and high visibility.


888’s AceHoyle.com Rank

Albeit it seems strange to stick a chart-topping operator like 888, aka Casino-on-Net, in our No. 2 slot the main reason it’s not “leader of the pack” on Ace’s list is the fierce competition from Casino Tropez. The strong 888.com brand is obviously still a great gaming destination but… at times like these we really wish there could be two No. 1 slots in every top-10 list.
