888sport Review

Although more synonymous with its online casino operation 888casino.com, 888sport has just recently passed twelve years of being an online bookmaker, and continues to go from strength to strength.

The 888sport brand may not have had some of the same glamorous or household sporting names associated with them compared to some competitors, but ex Arsenal and England striker Ian Wright, former Spanish goalkeeper Santiago Cañizares and respected Channel 4 Horse Racing presenter Emma Spencer have all featured prominently in promoting 888sport.

Getting started with 888sport

As you would expect from any self-respecting online bookmaker, there is a welcome sign up bonus to entice new customers to register and make their first deposit. In the case of 888Sport their homepage leads with a generous looking ‘£30 in free bets when you place your first bet of £10 or more’:

888sport homepage

Hitting the green Join Now button gets the process underway for a new customer joining and qualifying for the £30 free bets offer. According to 888sport it takes only a minute or two, so let’s put that to the test by starting the three step sign up process below!

Step 1 is fairly standard in terms of a customer entering their name, country, email, date of birth, gender and confirming they are aged 18 or over:

888sport Registration Step 1
888sport Registration Step 1

Step 2 is also very straightforward – the customer needs to choose a username and password combination. The password must be between 8-12 characters and contain at least one uppercase character and one number. Also there are four default security questions, one of which must be selected and an answer inputted for:

888sport Registration Step 2
888sport Registration Step 2

Onto step 3 – almost there! Now it’s time to enter your address and choose your currency- 888sport has options to play in:

  • Pounds Sterling (GBP)
  • Euros
  • US Dollars
  • Danish Krone
  • Swedish Krona

Somewhat unusually, 888sport is one of few online bookmakers we have come across which also asks for your occupation:

888sport Registration Step 3

If the customer’s details can be verified when hitting the register button you will be redirected to the cashier to make your first deposit – success! We found the registration process to be simple and hassle free, well in line with 888sport’s claim that it takes only a minute or two.

888sport Deposit Options & Terms

With registration now successfully completed, it’s time to deposit some funds and get playing! 888sport has a number of deposit options, detailed below:

  • Visa debit card
  • Mastercard debit card
  • PayPal
  • Neteller
  • Skrill
  • Paysafe
888sport Payment options

The deposit form itself is simple to complete – in the below example we decided to deposit £10 via a Mastercard debit card All we had to do was select ‘other’ in step 1 and then enter our card details and security code (CVV/CVC) in step 2:

With a deposit successfully made, the following helpful pop-up message appears:

After closing the deposit successful message, the homepage also confirmed our eligibility for a free bet:

888 Sport Deposit Terms & Conditions

With all the payment options set out above, we found that the minimum deposit amount is £10, regardless of deposit method. In addition mobile and app users also have the option to deposit funds using Apple Pay, which should ensure a smooth Mobile deposit experience. All deposit methods should be instant and there are no fees incurred for any of the deposit options available on the website. For the purpose of depositing we have assumed UK customer options only, but players residing in other countries may also find additional local options available. Here is the full list of payment options.

888 Withdrawal Terms & Conditions

For withdrawals, the minimum limit according to the 888Sport T&Cs is £3, with the exception of Apple Pay where no minimum withdrawal amount is stated.

Withdrawals to a debit card can take up to 8 working days to complete, which in our experience is at the slower end of the scale when compared to their competitors. The quickest method for withdrawing funds appears to be Neteller, Skill and PayPal, all of which are listed as 2-3 working days.

Customers should also be aware when making a withdrawal that any bonuses credited to your account must have satisfied all wagering requirements and qualification criteria before it can be released as cash. There may be times you feel the balance you can withdraw and that which is showing on your account are different and in many cases will be down to this reason. Further details can be found on the 888sport help pages.

888sport Sportsbook Bonus Offer

In order to welcome new customers, 888sport have a generous £30 in free bets on offer. To claim, simply follow these easy steps:

  1. Register for a new account and deposit a minimum of £10.
  2. Place a qualifying bet of at least £10 – for the purpose of this promotion a qualifying bet is defined as a bet placed on odds of at least 1/2 or better.
  3. Once you have placed your free bet, 888Sport will credit your account with 3 x £10 free bets.

Example:

Register for a new account and deposit a minimum of £10, and place a qualifying bet on Team A to beat Team B at odds of 2/1 for example, which are greater than the required 1/2. The qualifying bet can also be placed on other markets such as yellow card count, corner count, first goalscorer etc. as long as the odds are above 1/2. Regardless of the outcome, the customer will qualify for their £30 in free bets, as well as keeping any winnings and stake money from their qualifying bet should it prove to be successful.

Bonus Terms and Conditions

As with any promotion, it is important to be aware of the small print or ‘hidden’ clauses around free bets. Below are some of the key Terms and Conditions we feel customers should be aware of : Bets placed on Virtual Sports do not count towards the qualifying bet requirements.

  • Bets that are ‘cashed out’ do not qualify as qualifying bets.
  • The qualifying bet must be placed within 30 days of a customer registering for a new account.
  • Customers depositing with PayPal, Muchbetter, Paysafe, Neteller or Skrill will not be eligible for this promotion.
  • Free Bets will be credited as 2 x £10 and 1 x £10 that can only be used on a mobile device.
  • Free bets must be redeemed within seven days of them being credited to a customer’s account.
  • Free bet stakes are not included in any returns.

Here are the full terms and conditions.

Additional Bonuses & Promotions

£5 Free Bet at 888sport

888sport has several other interesting bonuses and promotions running which are well worth exploring, but probably not for the faint hearted!

For example 888sport has a promotion if you win on a selection which has minimum odds of 4/1 or more, you qualify for a free £5 bet each single day you back a winner:

888sport £5 Free Bet promotion
888sport £5 Free Bet promotion

Of course with the above promotion the clue is in the headline – 4/1 or bigger winners are quite steep odds in order to qualify for this promotion, so new and existing customers should think carefully before engaging with this offer.

Here are the full T&Cs for the £5 Free Bet promotion.

American Dream

Another promotion currently being run by 888Sport is their ‘American Dream’:

888sport American Dream Acca promotion
888sport American Dream Acca promotion

In this instance 888sport will refund the customer their stake as a free bet if they have placed a an accumulator with five legs or more on any combination of the following US Sports:

  • Major League Baseball (MLB)
  • Major League Soccer (MLS)
  • National Football League (NFL)
  • National Basketball Association (NBA)
  • National Hockey League (NHL)

Free bet refunds are offered up to £25 should one leg of the accumulator be a loser, but all legs of the accumulator must be at odds of 3/10 or better. For fans of US sports this should prove to be very popular – time to back David Beckham’s MLS franchise to deliver perhaps?!

888sport Sportsbook

With plenty of interesting bonuses and free bet offers to get customers excited, does 888sport deliver the online bookmaker experience required to delight and enthuse its customers? Well with over 30 sports available to bet on, as well as eSports, Virtual Sports, Politics and other 888sport ‘Specials’, there is certainly something to keep everyone involved in the action!

Not only does 888sport have a great array of sports on offer to bet on to more than match its competitors, it also has a reputation for covering action from unexpected parts of the world – do not be surprised to see 90+ markets pop up on a low key mid-table clash from the top flight of the Slovenia Football league! In fact, we quite fancy a flutter on the upcoming clash between Aluminij and NS Mura, not a problem for 888sport customers:

Betting & In-Play Markets

Whilst taking a closer look at the array of markets available on a Football event for example, we noticed the upcoming fixture between FC Köln and RB Leipzig had a massive 388 markets available to bet on. This puts 888Sports firmly up there as one of the leaders in terms of the depth of markets being offered. In fact all of the upcoming fixtures had a massive 250+ markets available:

888sport In-play markets
888sport In-play markets

After clicking through to a fixture, customers can get a feel for the form of a team, previous head to head results as well as other information which can help their chances of making a successful pick. Having this data readily available enhances the online experience and means we didn’t have to keep flicking between different browsing tabs to check on the latest standings or research previous head to head results.

In this instance we’re leaning towards RB Leipzig edging out the hosts, so we’re backing them at 13/25 with a £10 stake. Clicking on this selection pops out a betting slip in the bottom right hand corner of the screen:

888sport - Place bet slip
888sport – Place bet slip

With our potential payout of £15.20 confirmed at odds of 13/25, we’re happy to proceed and back the boys from Leipzig to keep up their good form and come away with all three points – time to hit the Place Bet button! After successfully placing the bet, the betting slip will update to confirm the details of the selection, total stake, total odds and potential payout:

888sport - Bet slip confirmation
888sport – Bet slip confirmation

Additional offer unlocked

Curiously we seemed to have unlocked a not previously advertised promotion when placing the above bet! Immediately upon the betslip confirmation, we were served with the follow pop-up:

888sport - New offer unlocked
888sport – New offer unlocked

After hitting the claim now button, we went to the offers tab under our profile, and found we had indeed been served up another offer:

888sport - New offfer (Profit boost)
888sport – New offfer (Profit boost)

The T&Cs of this offer seem to imply if we place a further bet up to a maximum of £10, and that bet is successful, our winnings or ‘profit’ will be boosted by 50% – nice! We’ll certainly go back to studying the form guide in the Slovenia top division based on this new offer being unlocked!

888sport Bet Builder

Like any good online bookmaker, 888sport has a Bet Builder function where customers can combine multiple events into one single bet, with the odds then also being updated to reflect the selections. In the below example, we have expanded up on our original selection of RB Leipzig winning outright to also add both teams to score, RB Leipzig to win 5.5 corners or over, have the most amount of corners and Timo Werner to be the first player to score:

888sport Bet builder
888sport Bet builder

With 888Sport offering over 300 markets on this single game, the more advanced sports fan will surely appreciate the chance to combine several selections into one bet, and hopefully win big!

Up for 8

Another way customers can get involved with 888Sport is with their unique ‘Up for 8’ feature, found on the left hand navigation:

888sport - Up for 8
888sport – Up for 8

Although no actual bet needs to be placed in this instance, punters instead will be challenged to successfully predict the outcome of eight Premier League fixtures every weekend during the course of the 2019/20 season. With bankers like Liverpool to win most weeks, that’s not as impossible as it sounds!

In order to be part of the fun, players need to be registered and verified with 888sport. Under the terms of this promotion, eligible players who correctly predict all 8 outcomes on sport matches selected by 888sport will receive an equal cash prize share out of the total prize pool made available for that particular round of weekend fixtures. For example if four players got all eight fixtures correct and the prize fund was £5,000, each member will receive £1,250 cash – not too bad at all!

As a nice added bonus players who do not predict all 8 outcomes successfully for the applicable match will nevertheless receive a £1 free bet. Here are the full T&Cs for the “Up for 8” and we strongly recommend putting your Premier League knowledge to the test and giving ‘Up for 8’ a go!

Live Streaming

If watching sports that you bet on live is an important feature for your chosen online bookmaker, 888sport has you covered! Live sport is on offer every day with Football, Tennis, Basketball just some of standard viewing on offer. Not all of it will be actual live footage, with some of the action shown as live graphical visualizations such as below. A choice of in-play markets should offset any annoyance of not seeing live pictures all the time:

888sport Live Football Match

Most of the action is free to watch, although Horse Racing does require the customer to place a minimum bet of £1 or £0.5 each-way per race. Details can be found on the promotions tab when logged in.

888sport Horse Racing Live Streams

The integration with live betting is very good and helps keep the punter involved in the action. Live betting markets are all collapsible, meaning you can keep an eye on the markets that matter to you rather than be hit by a dazzling array of live markets all at once.

The overall live betting feature mixed with streaming, news and stats makes 888sport one of the best betting sites for this service.

VIP & Loyalty Rewards

888sport has developed a VIP Programme that allows customers to earn up to £500 each week on their VIP Rewards programme. To quality, customers must:

  • In any given week (Monday-Sunday), customers need to make ‘real money’ bets on any market at 888sport – single and multiple bets with cumulative minimum odds of 1/2 (1.5) will count as qualifying bets for the programme.

Customers are then eligible for cash rewards based on the amount they have staked. The below graphic outlines the amount you must stake and the equivalent cash reward on offer:

888sport Verdict

In summary, we are giving 888sport the thumbs up! Drawing on their years of knowledge of being one of the first online casinos, 888 have successfully transferred their experience in giving customers a great platform to enjoy betting on Sportsbook.

From the fast and painless registration page to depositing money, 888sport has a friendly and coherent user interface that will appeal to both new and experienced online punters. Live Chat and telephone support are readily available, ensuring there should be no problem in getting up and running.

In terms of their new customer offer, it is certainly one of the richer offers currently on the market. Bet £10 and get £30 compares favourably to the likes of Paddy Power’s risk free £10 bet for example. Intriguingly 888sport have made one of the 3 x £10 free bets available to use on Mobile only, a possible nod to their confidence in their mobile offering. Customers should find the experience seamless between desktop, tablet and mobile and we recommend utilizing this component of the free offer – get your mobiles out!

We found the amount and depth of sports on offer, along with the huge number of markets to choose from a particularly pleasing part of the 888sport experience. Combined with features such as live streaming, Bet Builder and Up for 8, the overall impression is 888sport is a serious player as an online bookmaker and should not be missed by new or seasoned punters.
