Notes from the Editor

More than anything else, sports are fun. There is no doubt that the best handicappers take the games very seriously, but everybody recognizes there is some degree of luck associated with who wins or losses. 888Sport has a vast assortment of betting options, reasonable pricing, reliable payouts, and what they do really well is continually make games interesting. From their initial bonus to all sorts of various promotions, 888 is fun. Of course, fun isn’t any good without reliability, and they are that too. This is a fun and safe book for your action.

888 bonuses

  • Signup bonus: £10/€10 Free Bet with 3x winnings
  • Reload bonus: None.
  • Refer-a-friend: None.
  • Casino: 100% up to £140

The sportsbook industry has become stale with signup bonuses. That doesn’t mean there aren’t attractive options, but most sites kind of look the same. 888 Sportsbook has a different approach. Their initial offering is not huge, but it is unique, and then they have many other promotions that constantly keep members engaged. Their first offer is a free wager up to £10. You can place your cash on anything with odds up to 10-1. If you win, they will take however much you make, triple it, and that’s your bonus. So if you bet £10 on a wager that pays 5-1, you win £50, and then they’ll multiple it by three for a £150 bonus. If you aren’t thrilled with that sign-up option (or even if you are) they are currently accepting a promo code on any deposit. Enter Promo Code 888TV at the cashier and get an extra £10 free on any £20 deposit. In addition, their regular perks of being a customer are significant. You get to pick a few favorite Premier League teams, and every time one of them scores you get a free bet. If you place a bet on Champions League matches on Tuesday and Wednesday you’ll automatically get a third bet free. During Saturday Premier League games if you bet a contest before it starts, and again on the same game while it is going on, you can earn a third bet free. There are also refunds for losing a soccer match in the final couple of minutes, hitting four out of five on parlays, and several other unique categories. All in all, if you like promos, 888 has a laundry list of them.

Banking

  • Minimum deposit: £10/$10/€10
  • Payment options: Credit Card, Debit Card, eWallets. Pre-Paid Credit Card, Bank Transfer, PayPal, Skrill, Neteller, Paysafe Card
  • Supported currencies: USD, EUR, GBP, DKK, SEK

Deposits:

While initial deposits do not get the huge pop in the form of a sign-up bonus that some sites offer, they give you many ways to start including Visa, MasterCard, Paypal, Skrill, Neteller and Paysafe. You can essentially begin an account with as little money as you want to. The process is safe and quick.

Payouts:

Simple and easy, you can request payouts using credit cards, e-wallet companies, Skrill and Paypal among others. Like the site as a whole, just about any question you can come up with, when you will be paid, how much you can deposit, and when/if verification will be required, is simple to find. To sum it all up, they want to make it as easy as possible and are not looking to pull a fast one in any sort of way. They are reliable and part of what makes the business successful is their top flight reputation.

Customer service

  • Service hours: 24/7
  • Contact number: 0800-096-4780
  • Live chat: Yes
  • Languages: English, German, Spanish, French, Swedish, Portuguese, Russian, Norwegian, Finnish

As you would expect from a big publicly traded company, they are run well. You can call anytime if you have issues, they are quick to deal with problems, and even before reaching out via phone, chat, or email, 888sport has the best FAQ portion of their site in the business. All possible questions are sectioned off into various types of issues you could be happening, they are pointed, detailed, and frequently can save you time with simple answers. If you do need attention, they answer quickly, speak multiple languages, and are eager to please.

Sportsbook features

  • Live betting: Yes
  • Additional features: An enormous perk to being an 888sport account holder is access to their casino. They have perhaps the top online casino in the industry. It comes with everything you would expect, and much much more, like a Las Vegas sized playground. They also have an excellent and well populated poker room, bingo, and racing. Like their site does regularly, regardless of what section you are playing in, the racebook offers significant and fun promos. They’ll refund your bet if you get beat by an extreme long shot, provide handicapping advice, and even occasionally increase your odds on certain races.

While 888sport doesn’t offer the broad range of niche sports that some sites include, they make up for it with offerings for their core events. If you like soccer, basketball, football, baseball or hockey, there are few places with as much variety on how to wager. For virtually every one of their events, you can make sides and over/unders, but the number of props is impressive. Bet on what players will or will not score during a hockey game, who will score first, how many points a basketball player will tally, the exact final score, over and under on individual player points and so forth and so on. If you are a serious gambler on major sports, and like to get really specific, the offerings are vast for you to take advantage.

Website UI and UX

  • Mobile betting: Both mobile apps & mobile site run really smoothly.
