Global online casino company 888.com has released the online casino's Multicurrency service to selected countries.
The Multi-Currency service will allow new members to enjoy the award winning Casino-on-Net service in their own currency. The service has just been released in Germany, France, and Spain.
Players from around the world can now enjoy online gambling in their native language, and have a choice of currencies, including the original option of dollars, as well as pounds, and euros.
The multicurrency feature offers players a chance to deposit, and play in their own currency - removing the hassle of having to mentally convert between dollar amounts and the value of a bet in the player's own currency. Multicurrency betting enables players to focus on the game at hand, and removes the distractions inherent in playing with foreign money.
The multicurrency betting feature is just one of several new features for players at 888. Earlier this year players from several European countries were given the chance to enjoy their favourite online gambling games in their native language. 888.com accommodates players who wish to play online in English, Russian, French, Bulgarian, Spanish, Italian, German, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Danish, Hungarian, Romanian, Dutch, and several other languages.
888.com is committed to making the playing experience as comfortable and enjoyable as possible for players of all nationalities. The client software is easy to use and easy to install. Some games can be played using a no-download web client, and both the browser based and the installable client have minimal system requirements, ensuring that as many people as possible can enjoy the games.
