Design & Feel

W88 sports a clean website layout compared to its peers. As opposed to the classic black and red colour palettes, W88 comes default with white and blue palettes. If you still prefer the darker tone, you can just trigger the switch from white to black background (Dark mode). Whether it is bright or dark, W88.com is simply neat and pleasant to navigate.

For the menu bar, it employs floating dropdowns that will extend once the mouse cursor hovers around the main menu. This is a great feature so you won’t get all the cluttered and messy selections that you don’t wish to see. Everything is well organized and it actually eliminates confusion on the type of game the player wishes to play. Slots for instance, are categorized by the game developer/studio. It is pretty straightforward.

At the main page, the download and support quick access menus are on the left and right side respectively. For a quicker access to download the casino app, you can just click on the download menu on the left and it will bring you straight to the download page. The support menu on the right comes with a QR code for WeChat, Skype contact and access to use the live chat support. With such a dedicated menu just for support alone, I guess the support team simply can’t wait to lend a hand if you have any questions or problems. There is also a QR code for lite mobile app for those who prefer a more basic app. W88 is indeed very practical so customers can choose to go for the express route if they already know what they want.

W88 Games

Although slots can also be part of games but I really appreciate W88 for creating this as a dedicated section. The games section is designed to pack some of the more common casino games that do not fit into slots category. Examples of such games are Fish Prawn Crab, Derby, Rock Paper Scissors and Fishing. You will also find Tai Xiu or “Big Small” in this section too. If you are not a slots person, be sure to find your favourite games here. If you wish to test your skills, fishing games will be a good option too.
