OGCA’s verdict

888 Casino immediately impressed us with its choice of three welcome bonuses, to suit all levels of gamblers in Canada. This includes 888 Casino's no deposit bonus, and a large C$1,500 match bonus for high rollers.

There are 2,000+ games at the 888 online casino to enjoy, including slots, roulette, blackjack and poker. 888 also has a highly rated licensed sportsbook, 888 Sport, which we've reviewed separately.

Slight disappointments are the lack of live chat and phone customer support options, and relatively long payout times. Read on as we go through all the above and more in our 888 Casino review.
