888Sport Review and Latest Sign-up Offer

Review TL;DR
888sport is our Number 1 choice for Enhanced Accumulator Betting. Whilst they offer a huge range of sporting fixed odds markets, they save their best odds for Football and Golf. New players benefit from an excellent welcome bonus and a very accomplished bet-in-play experience. Their VIP program is also excellent and does a great job of looking after loyal players.

Detail Review
888sport is part of the 888 brand family and that in itself lends some great credibility to the company. 888.com has a reputation for being safe, secure and honest and 888sport is no different.
The site is regulated as per Gibraltar law, and under the licensing rules, can offer real money sports betting. The site that when first launched was predominantly in the European market has now expanded internationally.
888sport is backed by good reviews from players and also has several advantages.
One of the best things about the site is the many different sports options they have on offer. The variety of sports not only includes the regulars – cricket, basketball, football, rugby, tennis, boxing, and so on, but also some not so well-known sports that are played in different countries. And yes, there’s also horse racing.
The safety and security of 888sport are unmatched, and you can use the site with the confidence that your money is safe.
Two drawbacks are observed on the site:
• One is a lack of live streaming sports, except for the horse races within the UK and Ireland.
• The second is that there is no live customer support.
Other than these two setbacks, the overall site is on par with any of its high-quality competitors.
For an initial bet of £10, New Customers can get £30 of Bonus bets, which is a nice incentive to make 888sport your bookmaker of choice. Furthermore, you can instantly withdraw any winnings you make on your free bets.
Licensing & Safety
888sport has the highest safety ratings given to online betting sites. The site has a UKGC license and a Gibraltar Government license. The company is based in Gibraltar and operates under the name Cassava enterprises.

• a) No underage person is permitted to place bets. For this reason, 888sport has the strictest measures in place to make sure that they don’t default on the law.
• b) People with gambling problems are given the right guidance and information on how and where to get help.

Quality of Odds

Despite being relatively new to the industry, the site has made a name for itself with the competitive odds that it offers.
The site has a very wide range of sports that players can bet on, and they offer great odds in all the markets that they cover.
Few other bookies can keep up with the range of sports offered by 888sport. The sports offered include:
• American Football • Athletics • Aussie Rules • Badminton • Bandy • Baseball • Basketball • Boxing • Chess • Cricket • Cycling • Darts • eSports • Floorball • Football • Golf • Greyhounds • Handball • Horse Racing • Ice Hockey MMA • Motorsports • Netball • Olympics • Politics • Rugby • Snooker • Specials • Surfing • Tennis • Trotting • TV • UFC • Volleyball • Winter Sports
888sport not only offers all these sports but also gives players the odds on them regardless of how popular or not they are.

Bet In-Play Options
888sport is a relative newcomer to Bet In-Play.
In a short space of time, the site is giving its competitors a run for their money with its great options, live stats and scores, cash-out option and instant bet feature.
The in-play betting option is available both on the website and the app.
Placing bets while matches are being played, and having live updates on the odds allows players to plan their bets better and cash-out if necessary. On the website, there is a Live Betting tab towards the left on the top menu bar.
Clicking on the tab will give players all the options they have for placing live bets. You can choose from a number of practicable sports to place an in-play bet on. The interface is very well-designed and professional, and even new users will find it easy to use.
You can select multiple sports for in-play betting and can monitor the update stats, scores and odds on the main content section. Perhaps the only place where there is room for improvement is the inclusion of live streaming.
Within the UK and Ireland, Horse Racing can be watched across 85 different tracks but that is the extent of live streaming on 888sport.
Cash Out Feature
There is a cash-out option available for in-play betting.
The cash-out process is quick and efficient and has no extra fees. Identity verification is required during the cash-out process to prevent online fraud.
The way the withdrawal is paid is subject to the payment methods that have been submitted for the deposits. Some of the deposit payment options entitle you to a positive “Member Transaction Balance.”
When possible, winnings are paid automatically to the same payment method used to create the ‘Member Transaction Balance’ when a withdrawal is being made.
888sport reserves the right to put a limit on withdrawals for winnings greater than €/£/$30,000.
The amount can be withdrawn in instalments up to €/£/$30,000 per calendar month.

Tabs are placed at the top of the site so that users can find exactly what they are looking for without a problem. The home page displays all ongoing and upcoming sports along with their scores, stats and odds. The search bar at the top of the home page makes finding sports and markets easy.

Customer Service
888sport has great customer service via phone and email. The customer service representatives are helpful and courteous and proactively answer all question and help members with any problems they might experience while on the website. Customer service offers 24-hour support.
For members who have more detailed questions, email is the better option. The response time is quick and helpful. Over the phone, the representatives are courteous and help members with all their concerns.
One negative point that comes up is the absence of a live help chat option. For urgent queries, members have to call in or send an email and hope for an almost instant response. 888sport should consider a live chat option to improve the overall customer experience.
