It is often said that when it comes to online gambling that “the games make the casino”. While there are many factors to consider when choosing a casino, the games definitely have to be a major consideration. After all, if you aren’t having fun, what is the point in playing in the first place? Gambling is something that is meant to be fun, to be exciting, and dynamic games can definitely make your experience great.

Thankfully, 888 Games has some incredible offerings in their library. There is literally a bit of everything here, and you could certainly spend hours going through all of the great titles here.

This article is geared toward the different types of games on offer at 888 Games. We will take a look at the various slots, table games, miscellaneous games, and mobile offerings that the group has available. In each section we will comment on what we feel are the best titles and why we think that.

With that being said, let’s get down to business and play some games!

The Slots: A Whole Lot Of Variance

When it comes to slots, 888 Games has a very large library of games. We have seen some very nice titles in our time and can point out when a casino has decent slots. Powered by land gambling giant IGT, 888 Games is able to offer some very branded titles that have proven to be very popular throughout the entire world.

When it comes to the best slots at 888 Games, we recommend:

A Nightmare on Elm Street- This 5 reel, 30 payline video slot is based on the 2010 remake of the horror classic. The game is a lot of fun, and throws some major features your way such as expanding wilds and multipliers of up to 10,000x. You should definitely give this slot a chance if you enjoy film-based games.

Monopoly Slots- Okay, the Monopoly brand of slots consists of more than one game. There is a multitude of titles based on this classic board game brand, and all are fun in their own way. We really love all of these titles, and think that you can’t go wrong with any of the games. If you are up for some bubbly, colorful fun, the Monopoly slots are a great choice.

Wheel of Fortune: Hollywood Edition- Based on the popular game show, Wheel of Fortune is one of the most popular slot machines on the planet, online and offline. This game is a perfect port of the land based version and includes the iconic wheel, which will either grant you some very big riches… or make you go bankrupt!

Big Brother- One of my biggest guilty pleasures is catching this show on the tube. I have to admit, my expectations for this game were pretty low, but I had a genuinely great time playing this game and enjoyed the smooth animations and fun bonus rounds.

Table Games: Plenty Of Choice

888 Games’ table selection is fantastic, offering a table experience that is one of the best that we have seen on the internet. We loved the fact that there is a large variety of games, and you will find everything from Blackjack to Poker Dice here. The cream of the crop though is the live dealer offerings from 888 Games.

If you are unfamiliar with live dealer games, you should definitely check them out. The games have a real live dealer who is broadcast over webcam and deals the cards out in real time. The games have higher limits than other virtual table games, but offer the closest thing to a real casino experience that you can have at your computer.

Our favorite table games at 888 Games include:

The Live Dealer Games- As mentioned above, they are awesome. Whether you are playing Blackjack, Roulette, or Baccarat, the live dealer offering has the best entertainment value in the whole casino. Just make sure you have enough in your account to meet the table minimums.

Triple Card Poker- A casino favorite of mine, I am very happy with how 888 Games executed with this game. The cards are large and easy to see, and the animations are great. While it’s not as great as a live dealt game, Triple Card Poker still has one of the best three card poker experiences I have had online.

Miscellaneous Games: A Complete Hodgepodge Of Titles

In addition to the standard table and slots, 888 Games offers a variety of different parlor type games which include scratch cards and some other random win titles.

I’ll be honest: I am not really a fan of these games, but can tell you that games such as Hi-Lo and Pinball Roulette are a lot of fun to play. I had to be careful with Hi-Lo, as I got entranced by the game and ended up losing money because I kept playing and having fun!

Some of the best miscellaneous games at 888Games include:

X-Factor: Star Power- Based on the popular television talent show, this scratch card actually brings quite a bit to the table in terms of animations and sounds. In a world of hastily put together scratch cards, this game is one of the better ones.

Bejeweled- This little game packs a lot of longevity to it! Based on the computer and mobile game of the same name, this game sort of plays like a slot, with winning symbols evaporated and replaced with new jewels. If you are lucky, the symbols will keep disappearing and chaining massive wins together!

Deal or No Deal- I have to admit, this game may be my favorite real money game of all time. I played this for well over an hour, and felt the thrill that comes from the television show. I actually got lucky and took home a win of $750 here!

Mobile Games: Game On The Go!

When we review casinos, one of the things that we feel is very important is mobile play. Mobile casinos are gaining in popularity, and the games are getting better with every new release.

888 Games’ mobile casino is currently available with Apple devices, but Android support is forthcoming. The games available on the mobile platform are near carbon copies of their PC cousins, offering all of the flashy animations, loud sounds, and big wins that you are accustomed to.

We really think that two of the games that translate well to the mobile world are:

Blackjack- While Blackjack may be a simple game on the surface, it is very deep when you get in to the various choices you can make in any given situation. The 888 Games Blackjack title is very nice on the mobile platform, with great touch controls that let you make decision you want, without you hitting the wrong bet. If you dig this game, give it a shot on your mobile device. It is awesome.

Dawn of the Dinosaurs- We really dig this prehistoric slot and love the way that it translates to our iPads. The animations are slick, and we just had flat out fun playing this title.

Summary

Overall, there are many great games available for real money play at 888 Games. We were barely able to scratch the surface on what is available here, and could wax poetic about the great games for ages.

The bottom line is this: 888 Games has an awesome games library that includes almost everything you can imagine. The live dealer titles are probably the best thing going here, but other table games and slots stand out as being awesome as well.
