888 is one of the most recognisable names in the gambling industry. Established back in 1997, originally as an online casino and poker site, 888 was one of the earlier betting sites to venture online.
11 years after 888 Casino went online, 888Sport was launched as an online sportsbook to compliment their current casino and poker services.
With 888 being one of the earlier adopters of online gaming, their brand is extremely well-known and as such, they have a huge customer base who prefer to bet with a recognised and trusted brand as opposed to some of the newer betting sites which have emerged over the last few years.
With a big brand such as 888, you’d expect a generous welcome offer and thankfully, you won’t be disappointed as new customers can receive £30 in free bets when signing up.
The most important thing to remember when registering is that you must enter the 888Sport promo code in order to be eligible to receive the free bets. The promo code which you must enter is 30F.
To claim the free bets, register an account and make a deposit of £10 or more. You can enter the promo code on the deposit page. We advise that you make your deposit using a debit card as deposits made via e-wallets such as Neteller, Skrill, PayPal, Entropay or Paysafe will not qualify.
After depositing, you must place a bet of £10 or more on any sports market with odds of ½ (1.5) or greater. Once your qualifying bet has settled, your account will be credited with 3 separate free bets to the value of £10 each. Now, it’s important to note that two of your £10 free bets can be used on any sports market and placed from any device such as desktop, mobile or tablet. However, one of your £10 free bets must be placed using a mobile device. You will only have the option of using this free bet when logged into your 888Sport account via mobile.
Overall, this is a great sign up offer and definitely above standard. Just remember not to forget about the third £10 free bet which is only available via mobile.
The streaming of live sporting events is available to customers of 888Sport providing you reside in the UK or Ireland.
Live streaming is available on a range of sports including football, tennis, horse racing, basketball and more. To check to see if a live stream is available for a particular event, look for the TV icon.
Horse racing streams are supplied by Racing TV and to view these streams you must place either a £1 win bet or a £0.50 each-way bet on the race you wish to watch. Some streams allow you to replay the finish of the race which can help in determining additional places or the race winner before they’re officially announced.
Betting in-play can be exciting, especially if you are watching the event live. At 888Sport, you can bet on pretty much any event which has started and have a huge range of in-play markets to choose from.
In-Play events can be found via the ‘Live Right Now’ link at the top of the left sidebar and from there you can filter the results by sport to find the event you’re looking for.
The majority of sports have a large selection of in-play betting markets but it is on football matches where you’ll find the most. You can bet in-play on anything from the correct score, half-time result to next player to score to the team to get the most throw-ins or free kicks.
888Sport offer a cash out feature which is available on selected pre-match and in-play events and on both single and multiple bets.
Cash out allows you to end your bets early for the opportunity to secure a profit or cut your losses depending on how your bet is going.
Cash out at 888Sport is not available on accumulators combined with any pre-match selections for any sport other than football. However, it is available for pre-match accumulators on selected football markets.
To cash out your bets or to view the current cash out offer, go to the ‘My Bets’ section online logged in and click on the bet you’d like to cash out. If cash out is available for the selected bet, a cash out amount will be displayed. The amount will depend on factors such as your original stake and the current odds for that particular bet. If you’re happy with the cash out offer, click on the cash out button and a confirmation message will appear confirming your cash out. The cashed out amount will then instantly be added to your cash balance.
888Sport is available in a number of different languages which should cater for the vast majority of their customers. Currently, the 888Sport website is available in English, German, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Russian and Finnish.
There is also the option to select which country you are from which will reload the website with country-specific betting offers.
To change the language of the 888Sport website or to view the country-specific site, click on the language drop-down in the top right corner of the screen.
We had no major issues browsing the 888Sport website when testing in relation to site speed. However, it is by far not the fastest bookmaker site out there. In fact, it performs pretty poorly on a Google speed test and would benefit from significant improvements.
Pages do take a few seconds to fully load but providing you have a relatively good internet connection, the page load speed in its current state shouldn’t stop you from being able to browse the site and place your bets.
You’re unlikely to be disappointed with the range of sports available to bet on at 888Sport with almost every sporting event worldwide covered.
Some of the available sports at 888Sport include:
American Football, Athletics, Aussie Rules, Badminton, Bandy, Baseball, Basketball, Boxing, Chess, Cricket, Cycling, Darts, eSports, Floorball, Football, Golf, Greyhounds, Handball, Horse Racing, Ice Hockey, MMA, Motorsports, Netball, Olympics, Politics, Rugby, Snooker, Specials, Surfing, Tennis, Trotting, TV, UFC, Volleyball, Winter Sports and many more.
The number of markets available for each sport is also very good with the most markets being found on football matches as expected. However, even for sports such as basketball, cricket, rugby and tennis, there are a huge number of betting markets which should please most users.
The standard of odds on offer by 888Sport are excellent and are very competitive with other major betting sites for both pre-match and in-play markets. You’ll often find 888Sport offering close-to or even the highest odds for many markets on odds comparison sites adding to their credibility as one of the top betting sites.
