Appearing online in 2008, 888 Sport is owned by Cassava Enterprises, which is
a subsidiary of the international gambling monster known as 888.com. They are
one of the only online casinos to have a stock ticker on the London Stock
Exchange, which is impressive and makes us pretty confident in their legitimacy.
Licensed and regulated by the Great Britain Gambling Commission, we can be
assured that this is a safe place to gamble for people all over the world.
Unfortunately, US players are not accepted by this sportsbook as well as a list
of others. Below are all of the countries that not allowed to bet on 888
We will now attempt to break down every aspect of this online sportsbook
without any advice or influence from any other party. Any opinion that we
have in this review is ours alone and has not been paid for in any way.
This way you can be sure that we are giving you an honest assessment of the site
and what the experience there is like before you decide to deposit your money.
While 888 Sport is definitely one of the best sportsbooks in the world, it
does have some minor flaws here and there. We still highly recommend
joining this site if you live in one of the approved countries, because this is
about as good of a sportsbook as you can find on the planet.
We really have nothing bad to say here. People come to a sportsbook to
bet on all different types of sports, and 888 Sport seems to have them all.
It is a giant sportsbook that covers games from all over the globe, and there
should be something for every sports fan out there. Live betting is also
an intriguing feature that adds some entertainment value to the games by
offering instant odds for bets in nearly every situation.
It appears to be super easy to deposit and withdraw money on 888 Sport, and
the payout timeframes are pretty fast. We do not have to be worried about
our money disappearing on a site that is as heavily regulated as this one, which
is a huge plus in the trust column.
We count 2 lame bonus promotions, and 3 awesome ones. The lame ones are
good for beginning players though, so we won’t totally disrespect them. We
were hoping to see some sort of tiered VIP Club that gives players incentives to
play a bunch, but what they currently have to offer is fine.
They seem to be on par with the rest of the industry when it comes to
customer service. The only real setback for their customer service model
is that they only offer help to customers during business hours. This is very
illogical since people tend to gamble and have support issues during other hours
of the day, and this lack of support presence might be costing them customers
The software is extremely aesthetically pleasing and looks very up-to-date.
It does not lag or crash a lot like some sites do, and the mobile app works well
despite the minor irritation of all of the scrolling necessary to operate it.
Most complaints about this site are not in the user interface category.
They made it very tough to find a sport or a sporting event that they are not
offering bets on. Even though they are not serving US customers, they
include US sports in their betting model.
It is definitely a plus for the site that they offer Live Betting, as it is
very popular these days. Live betting has the power to make any game a
thrill, even if you started watching after it already began. We also enjoy the
fact that they have political betting for a lot of European countries, which is
pretty rare. Below is a list of the different sports that are available to bet
on with 888 Sport.
888 Sport has a decent number of quality promotions for their sports bettors.
While these promotions may not make the games beatable in the long run, they do
add some extra fun and give players a goal to reach with their play. Once
the goals are reached, the player will have some extra money to gamble with, and
everyone is happy. T&C’s apply to all offers.
The Welcome Offer is the first promotion that any player who is new to the
site will receive upon depositing. The minimum deposit is $10, and we are
then required to bet this $10 on any game we choose. In exchange for this
deposit and initial bet, we receive two free $10 sports bets, one free $10 bet
for the mobile app only, and a $10 bonus that is usable in the 888 Casino.
While it is somewhat lame, this bonus gives new
players a chance to get the ball rolling for a very small investment.
Acca Attack is a promotion that is aimed at strictly parlays or accumulator
bets. These type of bets are won only by getting every single selection
correct, and if just one of them loses then the whole bet loses. If we bet
a minimum of 5$ on a parlay of at least 5 teams, we will be eligible for a
Profit Boost Token. These tokens will give a 10% boost on our profit in
any future bet if we do a 5 team parlay and it wins, then it rises to a 15%
boost if we do a 6-team parlay, and so on. The final level of rewards is
an 11 team parlay or higher which will give us an awesome Profit Boost Token
with a 50% boost in earnings if it wins.
The Weekend Booster involves a Profit Boost Token but is offered only for
soccer bets between Friday and Sunday each week. The Profit Boost Tokens
start at 25% and go up in value after every 5 bets we make. After placing
20 bets, we receive a token that is worth 100% which is pretty high and the
promotion ends after 20 bets are made. The lame part about this bonus is
that the maximum bet is only 5$ for each bet, but in the end we are left with
250% worth of Profit Boost Bonuses which is great for future winning bets.
The most that is available to win with this 250% worth of Profit Boost Bonuses
is $5,000, but that is still a pretty nice chunk of change for a bonus.
American Dream is another bonus that is geared toward parlays or accumulator
bets, except this one is for American sports only. If we make a parlay of
at least 5 teams comprised of only American sports, and we fall one pick short
of hitting the parlay, we will receive a full refund on our bet. This
refund is only good for up to 25$ though, which makes this promo extremely tame
and uninteresting, especially considering how rare it is to come close to
hitting a large parlay.
Big Bet Bounty
Big Bet Bounty is an interesting leaderboard style promotion that is giving
away $2,000 worth of free bets to the top 10 on the list. In order to
place at the top of the list, our bet must have had extremely bad odds to hit,
and the minimum bet is $5. We can see that last week’s winner hit a 1 in
238 shot in a parlay to get an extra $888 in free bets for his first place
finish on the leaderboard! Be sure to spend these free bets within 7 days
of winning them as they will expire after that.
In this section we will divide all of the banking options into two
categories. One group is for methods that cannot receive any withdrawals
after depositing through them, and one group is for those than can do
withdrawals after depositing with them. If you happen to deposit using one
of the methods that cannot also withdraw, we recommend that you have another
withdrawal option ready to go so that you can get your money off of the site
There seems to be a large list of banking options, and some of them only
cater to specific countries. The timeframes mostly seem to be a reasonable
7 days or less. Be sure to check your cashier to be sure which options you
personally have available to your area. The only currencies that are
available for us on 888 Sport are the US Dollar, the UK Pound, the Euro, the
Swedish Kronor, and the Danish Kroner. Unfortunately, this is a small list
of currencies compared to the other great industry sportsbooks. Below is a
list of all of the banking options we have in those five currencies.
Deposit Methods That CAN Also Receive Withdrawals
Visa Credit Card
Visa Debit Card
Local Debit Cards
Qiwi VISA Virtual
Deposit Methods That CANNOT Receive Withdrawals
Instant Banking by Citadel
Visa QIWI Wallet (Russia and Kazakhstan only)
Diners Credit Card
Customer Service Options
888 Sport offers customer service in the form of email, telephone, and a
support center. Even though their live betting is 24/7, their customer
service is not.
This is one of the few sportsbooks that does not offer 24/7 support for
whatever reason, and that is definitely a red flag in the customer service
department. Considering the fact that 888 has been making millions of
dollars for over 2 decades, it seems like they should be able to pay enough
support team members to cover all hours of the day. They only seem to be
reachable during their normal business hours between 9 am to 10 pm GMT.
If we do wish to contact them during the above hours, we can either fill out
the form in the Support Center, email them at [email protected] or call toll free
at +44 203 478 0670.
We are highly impressed with the overall product that 888 Sport has to offer.
They have a solid history of trustworthiness, a large selection of sports to bet
on, and a list of decent promotions to choose from. The presence of quick
and reliable banking options also makes us very comfortable when putting our
money on this site.
There are, however, still a few areas where they can improve if they still
care about doing so, although most of the issues are minor. If they simply
fixed their customer service issue of not being available 24/7, added a few more
currencies to the banking options, and added a couple more quality bonuses for
long-term regular players, the site would be nearly perfect.
