888 named top casino for second straight year

10 February 2009

GIBRALTAR -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- 888 were named Top Casino of the Year for the second consecutive year at the 2008 Gambling Online Magazine awards earlier this week.

The award, which is voted by Gambling Online magazine's readers, is given to the online casino that delivers the best overall offering and the highest service levels in the industry.

It is the seventh award that 888 have won within the last five months. In September 2008 the company took three awards at the eGaming Awards where they took the prestigious Operator of the Year, the coveted Bingo Operator of the Year and the innovative Land Links Partnership of the Year awards.

888 also won the Operator of the Year and Best Betting & Gaming categories at the Leisure Report Awards in October 2008 as well as receiving the influential Most Effective Membership title at the 2008 APA Effectiveness Awards for its customer magazine Eight in November 2008.

Matt Robinson, VP marketing at 888, was delighted that 888 had won the Top Casino category at the Gambling Online Magazine Awards;

"To win any independent accolade is an honour, but to receive the Top Casino Award at the Gambling Online Magazine awards is a tremendous distinction as it is voted by the readers of that community."

Robinson continued:

"Indeed, this award has tremendous relevance, because it is voted by those who actually play our casino games and by those who have also experienced our competitors' efforts; so it is a true reflection of our place at the top of the hierarchical tree in today's casino market place."

"I am proud that the readers of Gambling Online Magazine regard 888 as the top casino in the sector and thank them for voting for us. Winning this award, and the six other awards this year, is a strong validation of our continued commitment to delivering on our core values of excellence, innovation, caring, customer centricity, leading and collaboration."

Within the last twelve months 888 has recorded record results, profits and continued growth. The company have seen immediate benefits from new products in our portfolio, and have signed a significant number of distribution and white label agreements. 888 are well placed to lead the sector into 2009 and beyond.
