How easy to the eye is the 888sport website?

The 888sport website has recently had a complete makeover and the layout is very interesting when you reach the home page as it has the traditional left side menu but the main part of the welcome screen has a mosaic tile format including a combination of offers, live events and upcoming events.

It gives a snapshot view of what is happening now. The colour scheme which is a combination of black, dark grey, orange and white works really well and it provides the user with a good quality experience, it makes navigation very easy.

Sports are easy to find by hovering over Sports A-Z in the main menu which then opens a wide screen menu (known as a mega menu). This shows clearly at the top of the page instead of older style drop down menus which can lead the user having to scroll to see all sports or content.

The new layout has definitely been built with the user in mind andf page load times are very good and much quicker than many other sportsbook sites.

In terms of content, 888sport have a mix of fun and serious content on their blog which is available from the main menu. They cover all of the main betting sports with regular news and tips.

Does 888sport offer competitive odds or the best odds in a certain sport?

888sport have also made big improvements in terms of the odds they offer on an overall basis with an overall margin of 4.8%, however, they still are one of the highest on football at 6.3% and this is one of their least competitive markets from a punters point of view.

Tennis is a big sport on 888sport and here they are very competitive compared to other bookmakers with a margin of 4.8%.

US sports are competitive with American Football at 4.1% and Baseball at 4.6%. Where they are really good is on NBA betting with basketball margins running under 4%.

How good is the market coverage and selection of bets on 888sport?

When we checked the markets on football there were over 54,000 individuals markets within 44 countries. Of course this changes on a day to day basis.

They are also very strong on basketball, tennis and NHL. For UK punters the main sports of horse racing and greyhound racing also have very strong market coverage.

How good is In Play betting on 888sport?

With the new website comes a dream interface for the “live” and “in play punter” Finding events and markets to bet on is very simple by clicking the link from the main menu.

Then it is a case of choosing your sport and every event in that sport is listed in the main window. Again the colour scheme makes it very easy to navigate and all markets have clear stats for what has already happened in the event so it is easy to spot betting opportunities.

Opening up the In-play interface you have the option of viewing Live and In-Play, Upcoming and also Ante Post which are all a single click away.

It would only take you three clicks to find any market on any sport.

What selection of bonuses and re-occurring promotions does 888sport have?

The sportsbook has nine different promotions with a mix of one off and re-occuring promotions. Included in this is their new welcome offer which has just been recently re-launched. This offer gives new customers the offer Bet £10 Get £30 (T&C’s apply)

Their offers include an acca insurance type bet.

These contain traditional methods of payment such as credit and debit cards, e-wallets and bank transfers. They also have a number of pre-paid cards available as payment methods.

How friendly and fast is the 888sport customer service and live chat service?

Very quick support and courteous support staff. We asked a number of questions and found that their was a link for each question that we posed to the operator.

Not many companies hold a full list of the countries in which they offer football betting. The 888sport operator provided us with a link to all of the countries they cover along with a full list of the leagues in each country……very useful for football punters.

About 888sport

888sport may be more famous for their casino and poker sites, but they are a trusted brand with a lot of experience within the gambling industry and have been around for almost a decade. They deliver a good-looking website backed up with customer support that is available 24 hours a day. They consider themselves to be a mobile-first bookmaker, and have ventured into sports sponsorship with their logo adorning football shirts and stadiums around the world. 888sport have also won awards for their marketing and their social media account can be as witty as any Irish bookmaker.

The comprehensive FAQs are really useful to get a quick answer and cover just about any topic you are likely to encounter, but it has to be noted that any request for a withdrawal is subject to an “awaiting process period” of at least one day. This is in effect a cooling off period and you have a period of time to change your mind on the withdrawal, while you will also need to prove your identity in order to get your hands on your winnings. This will include a recent utility bill; so ensure you have relevant documents ready otherwise a long delay or even refusal of pay-out could happen. Visa, Maestro and MasterCard are among the payment options, while 888sport also offers e-wallet capability through Apple Pay, PayPal, Neteller, Qiwi and a number of others.

Support is the area that lets the site down. 888sport is one of the few sports book operators that don’t give access to live chat or a Freephone telephone number without first logging into the site, going through the FAQs and then telling it you couldn’t find the answer. You are then prompted to fill in a form to be contacted back, while the opportunity for a live chat session seems very hit or miss.

888sport betting experience

The number of individual bets available is huge with just about every aspect of a football match covered such as individual players getting a yellow card, a player hitting the post or crossbar, goal in both halves, score from a header, in fact if you can imagine it, you can bet on it. 888sport offers its odds in UK, European and US formats and the overall betting margin hovers around 4.4%. The minimum stake allowed is 10p while the maximum fluctuates somewhat based on both the sport book chosen and the type of bet placed. There are stringent maximum winnings limits, set at €347,545 per day.

Live in-play betting is a major point of focus for 888sport, with many of the ongoing promotions requiring you to place a bet whilst the action is happening. The good news is that it is really easy to do. On the main screen you will see a tab called “live betting,” which then separates the screen into three sections; Highlighted – the top events currently being played are shown here. Just started – as the name suggests, all the current live games will be shown here. Upcoming events – anything starting within a few hours can be seen here. Simple. It’s really easy to cycle through the different sports that you can bet in-play with too. The array of sports is huge with football, tennis, cricket, basketball, snooker, darts and baseball the headline sports. 888sport has also recently expanded its live streaming offerings, with tennis, basketball, ice hockey and some football available to view.
