888 made it's very own little piece of history this week when it became the very first company to launch a real money casino on the social media network Facebook. It's called MAGIG888 and for the time being at least, it's available to UK residents only. It's a huge victory for 888 in being the first to market with their app as real money social gaming is seen as a growth market and this places them in prime position to edge out in front. 888 COO Itai Frieberger stated in a press release, "This launch marks a significant extension in our real money social offering. The successful launch of BingoAppy has indicated the potential that social gaming offers, and we are delighted to expand our gaming portfolio with the launch of our MAGIC888 casino." The app itself is actually two apps in one and as well as the real money offering there is also a play money version. For Facebook users outside of the UK the app may look a little confusing as there are no links to games etc, however UK users will have no such problem and simply by clicking the 'Play Games' button near the cover photo or by downloading from the app center they will be well on their way to playing a full suite of real money games for the first ever time of Facebook.
Bonuses Available on MAGIC888
Being first to market may be the biggest selling point of MAGIC888 but much of its success will be based around how it actually looks, the games available and of course the user experience. Once you are logged into Facebook simply use the usual search box and type in MAGIC888 and there it is. It's worth taking a look around the page before you dive in to the games. There are Magic Welcome Bundles available and by clicking on that picture a new page opens with the details. You'll see that should you deposit £5 you will receive £5 free by using the Magic Starter package, a £20 free bonus is available as the Magic Premium deal and the Magic Super offers a very nice £50 free when you deposit £50. Next to the welcome deals you'll see the Daily Magic Deals icon, by clicking on that you'll find what's on offer every day of the week, and there are some very good bonuses to be had. Monday offers a 100% reload bonus, Tuesday offers a choice of bonuses for a £10 deposit, Wednesday is a slot special.....and the list goes on. It's worth keeping your eyes on these, however after having 'liked' the page we are pretty sure that messages will be posted to their wall with the daily offers and therefore you should be able to see them on yours.
Magic Levels in MAGIC888
A pretty cool feature here are the Magic Levels. These allow players to unlock more games, and with three levels Novice, Pro and Master it does keep you interested as to what you'll get the higher you climb. At Novice, which you will be upon joining, you'll get access to free games and this level is for those that maybe just want to look around and get a fee for the casino. Pro is the next level and you'll get access to more games after playing a short time as a novice, then as you deposit you will become a Master, unlocking all games and even get access to the live dealer casino. This is not so much a loyalty program even though there are levels involved and the main thing is that the Master level is the real money level. Of course, it's easy to become a Master you just deposit and play but it is a nice touch.
