Bookmaker Review

The first thing you encounter when visiting any bookmaker is their sign up offers. Sure, they exist simply to entice customers in. But you"re going to join anyway, so it"s always worth taking note of a good one. With the code FB30 you"ll receive £30 worth of free bets when you deposit and place a £10 bet. 888sport are also known for regular offers when it comes to big televised sport.

On top of that, one of the first things you"ll notice when you log in is the players lounge. The players lounge is where you"ll find all of the promotions on offer including the ability to track your progress with them. One of these is up for 8, where players get to pick the outcome of eight football matches. You"ll receive a £1 free bet for every correct prediction and £8,000 if you win the jackpot.

888sport have really expanded on their promotional offerings in recent years as they look to compete with the likes of Skybet and Betfair. Look beyond that and you"ll find a wide variety of sports from around the globe, an abundance of markets and crucially, asian handicap markets. 888sport are a competitive bookmaker when it comes to best odds. Football is a strong suit whilst like all the top bookmakers, best odds guaranteed is on offer for horse racing punters.

The layout is great but it is the mobile app that you really want to get acquainted with. A new version of the 888sport app has been released in recent years and it is a seamlessly smooth betting experience. A good app is a stripped back version of the website that still allows you to do what you need to do. Navigation is quick and sports, events and markets are easy to find. The 888sport app experience is as good as any other and allows you to bet on the go.

Both the website and mobile app offer live streaming for every single horse race (providing you"ve bet) and 888sport is quite competitive versus other bookmakers when it comes to being able to cash out your bets. Finally, 888sport offering quick and helpful support via phone, email and live chat.

Likelihood of being limited

Being limited is a fact of being a very successful bettor. For 99% of bettors it isn"t an issue, including many who win, but there is room for it to happen with any bookmaker. For that reason you can"t single out 888sport for any criticism when it comes to limiting. Arbitrage betting is of course strictly prohibited and after that regularly beating the start price with very early bets could prove problematic. Like any bookmaker, just open an account and take them for all you can, whilst you can.
