Formed in 1997, 888 Holdings has climbed swiftly to the top of the online gambling game, picking up award after award along the way.

Formed by Israeli brothers Aaron and Avi Shaked and Ron Ben-Yitzeh, the gambling business is a formidable force to be reckoned with, especially since it was listed on the London Stock Exchange in the mid-2000s.

So, you should expect 888 Casino's service to be pretty shipshape and – in the most part – it is.

In fact, it is one of the world's leading online gambling platforms, providing its growing clientele with a wide range of casino games, banking options and a fair few promotions to boot.

What's more, the company operates a rather snazzy mobile service, available to download on both Android and i OS powered systems.

It's not all fun and games though, because there are a few issues which let 888 Casino down.

Customers past and present have often bemoaned the site's lacklustre customer service and there have been some problems when it comes to the handling of withdrawals and bonus promotions.

It's not enough to warrant blacklisting, but remains a source of frustration.

Reputation is paramount for a site of 888 Casino's stature and the fact that the company continues to win numerous awards for its services across its many platforms means that they must be doing something right.

The company is building on its success to spread its reputation across the globe, with a growing market share in regulated markets including Italy and Spain.

If that wasn't enough, it has also boosted its mobile coverage and invested heavily in attracting new customers through marketing campaigns.

In essence, this is a company at the top which still wants to go higher.
