888 Blackjack Review

Looking to play some blackjack?

Then you might consider joining 888casino. They’re one of the top gaming platforms for players outside the USA.

And we’re not the only ones that think so. Here are some of the awards they’ve won:

They’re good enough to get a license to operate in the United States (currently in New Jersey) for real money, too.

What else do you need to know?

Okay, okay – I get it. You need to know more about them so you can compare them to other casinos.

But… I warn you… you might just be wasting your time. Believe me when I tell you that 888casino is a solid choice for blackjack players.

You can read on for more proof.

Details About 888’s Software

There are only a couple things you need to know here –

There is a download for PC users. Everyone else can play in their instant play (Flash) casino.

They’re mobile-friendly, too. Their website is compatible with iOS and Android. Android users can also play using 888’s native app, which has received several positive reviews.

What Blackjack Games Can You Play?

888casino-blackjack-screenshotOne of the benefits to playing at a UK casinos versus a US casino is the number of software providers powering them.

Obviously, the more the better.

In 888’s case it means having more than 300 games to play (depending on what device you play from). That translates to having a decent number of blackjack variations.

Let’s look at those now.

Here are your live dealer options:

And here are their standard options:

As of 2011 their payouts on their blackjack games is 97.9%.

888casinos’ (Blackjack) Promotions

There are a handful of promotions to check out.

The first – a free £88 on registration. There’s no deposit needed. This is a great way to check out their site without having to have skin in the game.

This offer is available to PC users only and is a free-play offer (you can’t cash out the free money). You’ll need to wager your winnings 30x before you can cash them out.

The second offer – their 100% Welcome Bonus.

This is a relatively small offer – only £200. The upside is it’s available to all users and can be used to play all games, including blackjack.

The only ‘catch’ for blackjack players is you’ll have to roll over the bonus 10x the normal rollover (which is 30x). That means betting £60k to win £200. That sucks.

You’ll need to clear this offer fast, too – you only have 90 days. That might be impossible for most players.

You’ll want to make that call before accepting making your deposit.

The third offer – they have two contests for blackjack players. Between 13:00 and 1:00 they will shuffle 12 winning cards into their decks. If they deal you one of those cards you can win your share of up to £1,200.

And last – they have a VIP program.

This offer will get you all kinds of additional offers and access to their live VIP blackjack games. You can also get a personal account manager and event tickets, too.

The problem I have with this program is that it’s invite only. And they don’t have anything for players that are unlikely to become casino VIP’s.

How to Fund Your Account

You can use the following methods for funding your account:

Most of these options can be used for withdrawals too.

Our Grade & Final Thoughts

I give them an A-.

They’re a solid site. The only things I don’t care for have to do with their promotions.

But the things that matter – the software, games and game selection – are solid.

For that reason I think you should check them out.

And if you ever run into any issues you can use their extensive FAQ page. This is where you’ll find the link to their contact form, too.
