Overview

Review last updated - May 2016

Casino 848 are one of the more recent additions to the 888/Cassava/Random Logic group of casino. With a software platform that’s unique to their venues there certainly something different to be found here.

Trustworthiness

 -  2 / 10

Three of the reviewers who works for this site regularly hold accounts with 888 and all of these have been open for years. They report positive experiences.

888 have proven to be unwilling to engage with 3rd party dispute mediation on several occasions over the years. Alongside this they have been known to confiscate player funds citing only vague spirit of the bonus terms.

The extended group of operators that 888 run has been reported to refuse to pay out player winnings if they claim bonuses at multiple properties within their group, but fails to provide players with reasonable information regarding which properties are in their group. This policy also appears to have been applied to gambling protection self-exclusions where checks have not been carried out at registration, only once the player has won. This means that if a player self-excluded from any property in this group, if they sign-up with another property not realising that this property is owned by 888, the player is then in a position where they can lose, but if they win they will not be paid.

In late 2014 a situation came to light where an affiliate was found to be hacking into other sites and posting their gambling links on these sites without the owners knowledge or permission. This activity is clearly illegal and unethical. The majority of casinos that were receiving traffic from this affiliate closed the affiliate's accounts upon finding out what the affiliate was doing, however some casinos, whether via intent or insufficient security policies, continued to be listed on these sites for many months after the activity of this affiliate came to light. Many other brands managed to quickly take action to get themselves removed from the hacked sites (closing the affiliate account down and ensuring that new accounts could not be open).

The software that the 888 properties run on - Dragonfish - runs a Baccarat game that we found to mis-advertising the pay out of 2 of the bets on the table. We repeatedly tried to contact this software provider to correct this issue and received no response.

The 888 group have engaged in what appears to be the closure of profitable affiliate accounts using general account closure terms reportedly due to the affiliate not generating enough new leads, though the required amount remains unspecified. We assume that the amount of new leads exceeded the amount required by their minimum activity clause which is the understood minimum. We view this as an unethical business practice.

Licensing

 -  8 / 10

Casino848 hold the following gambling licenses :

  • United Kingdom Gambling Commission - The UKGC are widely considered to be the most reputable regulators involved in the online gambling market. They do not manage complaints for players directly, instead requiring their operators to appoint a UKGC accredited Alternative Dispute Resolution service. As such the value of this license for players depends largely on the professionalism of the ADR service utilised. Casinon848 currently use eCOGRA. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies here.
  • Gibraltar Gaming Commission - The GGC is one of the more reputable online gaming regulators, but we are aware of a serious software issue where they failed to uphold their own technical standards. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies here.

Comp Points

The Casino 848 casino comp point program offer 1.35 comp point for every €16 wagered and converts 135 comp points to €1. This is slightly weaker than the standard Playtech comp point program.

Closing Thoughts

Casino 848 are part of a group that in general terms seems to have a low incident of player issues, but when player issues do occur the approach they take to dealing with them blows the issue out of all proportion.
