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.

888 sport 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.
