888.com exchange rate stupidity

    Just trying to get some sense out of 888.com, I went in there to make a deposit, the casino is denominated in US$, but I live in the UK, it says I will be charged in GBP, and there is no option to change this, although you can choose the cashout currency (although I previously had an epic struggle getting Luckyace to honour my selected currency).

    The exchange rate for deposits is in the cashier for deposits:

    "Rates according to the last business day: US$1.0000=£0.6565"

    According to Yahoo! Finance, the last close was at

    You must register/login in order to see the link.

    US$1 = 0.6304

    That's a hefty whack, ~4% worse, and I wonder if they will charge me the other way when I cashout (so total loss around 8%)

    I check the 'withdraw' tab and there's no info on the exchange rate, so I try to find out from 'support'.

    Here follows the chat log:

    What I can't understand is why these casinos still use the US Dollar?? No one from USA can play....

    Did that not put you off playing there in the first place? I don't like playing in $$ unless I really need to as I can never be bothered to do the currency exchange in my head when I play.
