888 Casino Paves the Way for Spanish Players
The massive 888 Casino is getting ready to accept players from Spain. Due to new regulatory requirements from the Spanish Gaming General Directorate, 888 Casino has created special websites for Spanish players: 888casino.es and 888poker.es. These new Spanish websites launched on the 5th of June, and they will be fully functional starting on the 12th. If you are a resident of Spain who plays at 888, make sure you follow a few simple steps to ensure that you can start playing on these new sites in no time.
Will my current account at 888casino.com be transferred?
Yes. If you were already an account holder at any of 888's .com websites, your account information will be transferred to the new .es websites. In order to ensure that you are kept informed every step of the way, you should receive correspondence from 888 instructing you how to complete the transition. This process is done to ensure maximum security of your account.
I had money on an 888casino.com account. Will that also be transferred?
Yes. Any cash balance that you had on the .com site will be sent to your account on the new .es site once you complete the transition. Representatives from 888 will make sure that you get access to your money as quickly as possible. If your balance was comprised of a currency other than the euro, it will be converted into euros based on the current currency exchange rate.
What games will be available on the new 888casino.es?
Unfortunately, the new laws in Spain prohibit 888 from launching their famous slots on the new 888casino.es website. However, you will be able to play any of the following table games:
- European roulette
- American roulette
- French roulette
- American blackjack
These games will all use the same conventional rules that are used at the original 888casino.com, and you will be able to bet whatever amount you feel comfortable with..
Will there be any promotions at 888casino.es?
If you a resident of Spain who is not yet a member of 888 Casino, you will receive a 50% match bonus worth up to 100€ on your first deposit at 888casino.es. We will have more information about the specifics of this bonus once the site officially launches.
Although they won't be offering slots yet, 888casino.es will provide all of their players with a chance to win a solid 1 million € on their European roulette game. In order to win this jackpot, the ball must land on the number "8" six times in a row. The odds are certainly slim, but if Lady Luck is on your side, you could win a massive amount of cash with even just a minimum bet.
Can I play at 888casino.es if I am not from Spain?
No. Due to the laws that put this transition into effect, only Spanish players will be able to play at 888casino.es. If you are a resident of another country, you will continue to be able to play the full collection of 888 games at the original 888casino.com.
