888Sport bookmaker review

Background

888sport is part of the gambling conglomerate 888 Holdings PLC, who describe their websites as 'entertainment destinations' which seems a tad grandiose. Still, they are a massive organisation who have been one of the leading players of the online gaming revolution for over a decade and show no signs of holding back.

As well as their sports book, 888sport, they also run a highly successful casino (888casino) and the fastest growing online poker room in the industry (888poker, as you might have guessed).

With their gaming operations based in Gibraltar (for tax reasons), the holding company floated on the UK stock exchange in 2005, which they hope is a step to becoming the world's market leader in online gaming.

888Sport Odds and Markets

888sport has a massive array of sports betting markets, from American Football to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and everything in between. They also offer odds on various political and celebrity markets for those who want a break from sports.

The football (soccer) markets are as extensive as any of their rivals and as well as all the major leagues one would expect to be covered, they also allow customers to bet on a few that are lesser known, for example the Egyptian Premier League, the Australian A-League and the Indian I-League.

Based on our research, 888sport are not quite as competitive with their odds as some of their rivals. While they often match the best price in a particular market, they rarely go out on their own to offer the best industry price on an event.

888Sport Bonus Offers

888sport have a reasonable - if fairly convoluted - offer for new sports book customers of 50 GBP in free bets.

They will match your first bet of 10 GBP with a free bet of the same value, as long as you backed an event at odds of evens (2.00) or greater. Thereafter, you will receive a further 10 GBP free bet for every four 10 GBP (or above) bets you place, again at evens or greater.

So as long as you place at least 10 GBP for each bet you will receive a 10 GBP free bet token after your 1st, 5th, 9th, 13th and 17th bets. Oh, and you have to complete all that within 120 days of your first bet.

The bookie has a wide and regular range of promotions for sports book customers. For example their 88th Minute Moneyback Special on selected football matches, in which your losing bet will be refunded (as a free bet up to 50 GBP) if a goal is scored from the 88th minute onwards that scuppers your selection.

There are plenty of others, but our favourite is the Lucky 888th. If you happen to place the 888th bet of the day at 888sport, they match your stake with a free bet… up to a massive 888 GBP.

In-Play and Mobile Betting

888sport have a well-presented Live Betting section of their website that lists all the events they are covering as well as having links to statistics and live scores for a wide variety of sporting events. With loads of football matches, there are a number of other sports regularly covered by the bookie including basketball and snooker.

The bookmaker will give you an extra 5 GBP / EURO no lose bet when you place your first bet on their mobile platform. Their mobile betting is simple to access, you can either text the word 'Sport' to 83311, type the address 888sport.com into your phone's browser or send yourself a free text through the website with the required link.

Customer Service

Telephone: +350 200 41387 (daily between 9:00 - 22:00 GMT)
Email: support@888sport.com
Address: Cassava Enterprises (Gibraltar) Ltd., 601-701 Europort, Gibraltar

For a company of the size and stature of 888sport's parent, you would expect 888sport's customer services operation to be faultless. Sadly, this is the one area where they are a slight let down. Not only do they offer no live chat, there is nowhere on the website that you can find their telephone number or even postal address. As such you have to send a message through a form on their site if you have any questions or disputes. Frustratingly, it can take up to 36 hours to receive a response. To be fair to them it only took two hours to receive a response, and they were happy to give the telephone number and email address, but these should be more accessible on the website itself.

On the plus side, when the response does arrive, the staff members are knowledgeable and helpful, though obviously not being about to speak to them directly can make for a very drawn out exchange if they don't answer all your queries the first time around.

Conclusion

Overall 888sport offer a genuinely decent experience for the online sports gambler. The number of markets is vast and the website itself is well designed and easy to navigate around.

As mentioned, the downsides are the lack of customer service options exhibited on the website and the scarcity of market-leading odds. Having said that, the regular and generous promotions and special offers do go some way to mitigating these factors and we would recommend 888sport to customers.
