888 Holdings is one of the biggest iGaming companies in the United Kingdom and has influenced every aspect of this industry, with major sportsbooks, poker rooms, online casinos, and bingo brands on its portfolio.
888 Ladies is one such site—a small part of a massive gaming organization. It has a simple design featuring vibrant greens and faded pinks and everything is condensed neatly into an easy-to-use package.
Who Owns 888 Ladies?
888 Ladies is operated by Virtual Global Digital Services Limited (VGDSLTD), which is part of the 888 Group. If you’ve used 888 sites in the past, you may have seen the VGDSLTD name on your bank statement, as it’s the payment provider for many EU-based 888 customers.
The name “Cassava Enterprises” may also appear from time to time, as this is an 888 subsidiary under which many of its sites operate.
The actual software is provided by Dragonfish, which also powers Wink Bingo and, unsurprisingly, is owned by 888.
If all of this sounds confusing, just remember: 888 Holdings owns pretty much everything. Or so it seems. They are the Mondelez of iGaming, and that’s not a bad thing, as they are responsible for some of the best sites in the business.
The Welcome Offer
The 888 Ladies Welcome Bonus is pretty impressive, offering up to £50 in credits when you deposit just £10.
The bonus is structured as a 200% matched offer for both bingo games and slots, and there is a minimum £10 deposit. The bonus is capped at £20; you have 7 days to claim, and all winnings are fixed at £100.
The wagering requirements are 2x for the bingo bonus and 50x for the slot bonus.
As an example, if you deposit £10 and claim within a week, you’ll get £20 in bingo credits and £20 in slot credits, plus your initial £10 deposit.
If you deposit £20, you’ll get £40 to spend on bingo and £40 to spend on slots. Deposit £50 or more and you’ll hit the limit, getting £100 per section for a total bonus of £200.
888 Ladies has a Newbies Room, where new players can play for 3 days without making a deposit or spending a penny. There is also a Lady Luck game, where active members can win a host of prizes; Daily Cashback offers, and a host of jackpots.
The Loyalty Scheme is particularly noteworthy. You’ll get points every time you play and can redeem these in a couple of quick clicks. To find your current point balance, just click the little arrow next to your Total Balance and this will show you your Real Money balance, as well as your Bingo, Games and Loyalty Points balance.
Take a look at the casino’s Promotions page to stay up to date with the latest offers, and make sure you check the Terms and Conditions to avoid any nasty surprises.
Games and Software Providers
Take your pick of over 700 top games, provided by some of the industry’s best-loved developers. The 888 Ladies games room is home to creations from Wazdan, Microgaming, Blueprint Gaming, NetEnt, and IGT.
You can even play Live Casino classics like Dream Catcher from Evolution Gaming. Unfortunately, there is no filter for provider/publisher, but you can narrow down your options based on categories like Megaways, Jackpots, and Instant (basically scratch cards) as well as Trending Slots and a “Chosen for You” section that is based on your gaming activity.
Dragonfish produces some of the best bingo games in the business and all of these are at your disposal on 888 Ladies. There are 75-ball and 90-ball variants, including a host of progressive jackpot titles, bingo roulette games, and more.
If you’re not confident enough to play for real money, try the Newbie’s Room. It’s completely risk-free and you can still win a variety of prizes, including gift vouchers and small cash amounts.
Depositing and Withdrawing
According to the casino’s Terms and Conditions, UK players can use PayPal, debit cards, Apple Pay, and Paysafecard. When I created an account, however, I was only offered debit cards as a payment method. There is also a section that states Neteller is accepted, but this is nowhere to be seen, either in the cashier or in the Ts & Cs.
Some casinos allow you to use PayPal and other web wallets only after you have made an initial debit card transaction. Presumably, the same applies here.
Withdrawals are held for 2 business days, although at the time of writing, these couldn’t actually be reversed (in the UK, at least) so you’ll just have to twiddle your thumbs until the payment is processed. From there, it could take an extra few days to reach your bank account.
888 Ladies makes a big fuss about the Source of Funds law. Its position on this rule takes up a large portion of its FAQ and there is even a direct link in the top menu. It’s something that most players don’t know about and something they rarely have to worry about, and so the casino’s emphasis on this matter may be a little confusing.
Simply put, if you make a single large deposit or start depositing more than usual, you will be asked to prove where this money comes from, including pay slips, company status, or proof of shares/inheritance.
It’s required by the UK Gambling Commission but contrary to what you might think, it’s not something that every player needs to provide.
Maybe 888 Ladies is more diligent than other sites, but it’s just following external guidelines, so I’d be surprised if that was the case.
888 Ladies Bingo Review Summary
Every legitimate UK casino follows the letter of the law, but 888 Ladies seems stricter than others. When you join, you’ll be asked to state your occupation, there are blocks on withdrawal reversals (although these might be temporary), and then you have the Source of Funds info.
These things might be confusing to experienced players, but all things considered, it’s a solid site with some good games and the backing of a massive brand.
It will tick a lot of boxes for bingo fans and that’s what matters the most.
