Special Bonuses and Promos
888 Casino, like practically every other major online casino, welcomes you in as a new player with an attractive bonus as soon as you sign up and make your first deposit. The standard Welcome Bonus for 888 players consists of a 100% match of your first deposit up to C$100.
While this amount may seem small compared to the enormous bonuses promoted by some online casinos, more often than not, enormous bonuses come with enormous deposit and wagering requirements.
At 888, the required playthrough is a very reasonable 30x the bonus, after which you can keep not only what is left of your own deposited money and any winnings, but what is left of the bonus, too.
888 Casino is now also offering an alternate way to accept the Welcome Bonus. It is called the Premier Players Welcome Package, and starts with a 100% match of your first deposit up to C$100. Then, if you make four more deposits, all in the first week, and play through each deposit just 3x, you receive a 30% bonus per deposit, up to C$350 for a C$1050 deposit. Based on a five deposit total of C$4300, this Welcome Bonus can total as much as C$1500.
Keep in mind that only slots, Keno, arcade games, and scratch cards count 100% in meeting the playthrough requirements for withdrawal. Other games count much less. For example, roulette counts 20%, while blackjack, baccarat, and video poker count only 10%. In other words, the Welcome Bonus is great for slots, but practically useless for any other game.
Of course, with either of the Welcome Bonuses, don't feel obliged to make the maximum deposit if the wagering requirements will be too steep for you. Deposit what you can afford and be content with a smaller bonus. The minimum deposit is only C$20.
Yet another bonus available to new players at 888 Casino is the C$88 No Deposit Required Bonus. However, in order to withdraw any winnings, the bonus has to be played through 30x, so in that sense a deposit is necessary.
