    Join 888sport for a great sports betting experience

    In a Nutshell

    • Top highlights: A stunning variety of sports betting options; useful "bet calculator" for making safer bets
    • VIP or loyalty programme: Coming soon
    • Other offerings: Casino, live casino, poker, bingo


    If the 888 name has an air of familiarity about it, there's a good reason for that. It's a name that has adorned various gambling sites due to the reach of 888 Holdings, which was formed back in 1997. 888sport is the sports betting arm and launched more recently in March 2008.

    If you have had the good luck to sample the online gambling site 888casino, rest assured that the Midas touch of 888 has indeed been extended to 888sport. A pleasing variety of sports markets is available through 888sport, which also offers impressive customer service.


    You are well-served for promotions on 888sport. When making your initial deposit, you will get a generous welcome bonus - and there are plenty of other prizes up for grabs if you are willing to compete in various exciting events that 888sport has to offer.

    It's probably worth following 888sport's social media pages, as it is on both those and the main website that promotions and competitions are advertised on a daily basis. The prizes that you can win along the way include sports tickets, free bets and signed football shirts.

    Sports Betting Types and Betting Markets

    The variety of sports on which 888sport lets its users bet is huge and includes favourites such as:

    • Football
    • Tennis
    • Cricket
    • Golf
    • Rugby
    • Snooker
    • Darts
    • Boxing
    • Swimming
    • Horse racing

    In fact, over 30 categories of sport are listed on the 888sport website - and you hardly have to limit yourself to just UK sports. That's because overseas sports like American football and Australian rules football are among the offerings, too.

    Betting Coverage

    A wide betting coverage as well as a mobile app

    The ways in which you can bet significantly vary; think totals, sides, teasers and parlays, for example. You can also look forward to live betting, which is an option 24/7. Yes, that's right; there is never a time when some live sports action isn't unfolding for viewing by 888sport users.

    We are especially fond of those live betting opportunities; as they let you place your bets while the action is happening, betting to successful effect can be much more difficult and so require a highly strategic element that might not so much come into play with more standard betting.

    888sport also offers a mobile app for both iOS and Android. Fortunately, not a single one of the site's sports betting options has been omitted from the app; hence, you could start your betting on the way home and then continue on your desktop computer when you arrive at home.

    Software and Graphics

    While it is customary for sports betting sites to use software that has been produced externally, 888sport differs in using its own internally-developed software. Well, why shouldn't it? This software is highly regarded around the industry, and many users could soon see why.

    Indeed, the intuitive nature of the software is one big reason why 888sport can be an especially suitable choice of sports betting site for novices. Whether they opt to start betting within their usual web browser or download provided desktop software, they are unlikely to struggle.

    It doesn't hurt that the whole website interface looks good, too. The 888 logo is, of course, instantly recognisable by now - and fortunately, the site's orange, white and black colour scheme is also easy on the eye while being highly distinctive.

    Extra Value

    888sport's bet calculator will help you make better-informed bets

    One of the best reasons to choose 888sport is its "bet calculator", as the site itself calls it. This calculator can help you to make better-informed bets - as, before placing a bet, you can use the calculator to figure out various moves you could make and their chances of success.

    When you use the calculator, it will take account of not only your stake but also our odds and whatever other data is deemed necessary before it informs you precisely how much profit your bet would reap. This functionality can add to the appeal of 888sport for more risk-averse players.

    Loyalty or VIP Programme

    888sport currently does not offer any loyalty or VIP programme, but one is coming soon.

    Other Offerings

    Casino, poker and bingo are also available via 888

    Entertainment treats of a broad variety are kept in the 888 stable beside just the sports betting. You might already be familiar with the 888 sites dedicated to casino, poker, bingo and other games - and if you weren't familiar, well, now's a good time to thoroughly sample them.

    What do other players think about 888 Sports?

    Pros:   The customer bonus was good for new customers but wasn’t applied and had to chase it up. Received very quick response and was resolved quickly and efficiently. 
    Cons:   The bonus was not paid out as agreed and had to chase this up. Clarity of main website not great or easy to navigate. 

    Pros:   Good variety of games and bets, site layout is clean and easy to navigate, different areas of site are well advertised usually 
    Cons:   Sometimes the site feels impersonal, could improve customer service, make offers more personalised to the member’s own getting behaviours. 

    Mr X
