Free Bets on 888Sport

888Sport marks the entry into sports betting for leading casino and online gaming giants 888 who launched this exciting new venture in 2008. 

Our 888Sport review

Background

888.com moved into sports betting when creating 888Sport and has grown in reputation to become a firmly established online betting site in the UK.

The sportsbook compliments 888's other websites which offer Casino, Poker, Bingo and Games, including the award winning casino, 888.com. Established in 1997, 888 has developed into one of the world's biggest online gaming operations.

The company is now based in Gibraltar where it has been licensed since 2003 and in 2005, 888 Holdings PLC was listed on the London Stock Exchange.

888Sport was launched in 2008 and targets the online sports betting markets in Europe and Scandanavia.

Although the sportsbook started out as a partnership arrangement with Blue Square, 888Sport has now developed its own identity with its own unique customer offering.

Offers and Promotions

Since launch, 888Sport have regularly promoted very attractive introductory offers and its latest sign-up offer follows that tradition.

For your loyalty 888Sport will give you a Free Bet basket worth £88. To qualify, sign up with 888Sport and place a first bet of at least £10 at odds of evens (2.0) or bigger. 888Sport will give you a £10 Free Bet token and afterwards, you'll receive another £10 Free Bet token for every 3rd bet of at least £10, until the 22nd bet when you'll receive £18 for a total of £88 Free Bet tokens.

888Sport runs regular offers and promotions for its customers with that latest being:

88th minute money back special- a refund if your last goalscorer or correct score loses due to a late goal scored after the 88th minute in the featured football games.

888Sport also run frequent prize giveaways and competitions with cash prizes, tickets for sports events and it has a dedicated VIP area with exclusive offers, bonuses and competitions.

Odds & Markets

888Sport offer odds for a range of different sports and it has all the major sports and events covered, you'll also find Live Betting and odds for Awards, TV Shows and other one-off specials.

The depth of betting markets for each major sports event and televised contest is very good and 888Sport offers a lot of special bets (or propositions) and there ought to be something of betting interest for everyone.

The betting margins are competitive enough, but the prices can look conservative and you won't find a lot of stand out odds. Having said that, there is still some good value to be found with 888Sport, but they don't set the standard as big risk takers.

Casino, Poker, Bingo and Games are all accessible from 888Sport, to provide plenty of gaming options for members.

Website

The 888Sport website has a nice interface and the page loads are fast; registration and placing a bet is nice and simple with the site being very easy to navigate and find your way around.

The home page offers the upcoming sports events but the next live horse racing is found tucked down at the side. 888Sport uses geo-targetting and the events featured on the home page will change depending on the location of the visitor.

The Live Betting area is good, the console shows the current In:Play contest and the Live Diary lists the events to be featured in the next two weeks.

Odds can be displayed in decimal, fractional and American format and the website can be viewed in Austrian, Danish, French, German, Spanish or Swedish as an alternative to English.

888Sport accepts deposits in any of five currencies; GBP, EUR, USD, DKK and SEK using a wide variety of credit/debit cards, bank transfers, pre-paid cards and e-Wallets.

There are no Live Sports Video streams available from 888Sport but the site features include Live Racing video streams, form, results and statistics via the Racing iCard, you'll need to place a bet of £1 or more to watch the live racing video.

888Sport also provide a good selection of sports statistics, tables and results from the Statistics link, there is a fairly inactive news section and members can susbscribe to updates from 888Sports' blog, The Zone.

888Sport has a site optimised for mobile phones and it can be accessed from any internet enabled mobile phone including touchscreen devices without the need for downloads. Users will be able place bets, but registrations and deposits must be made via the main 888Sport website.

Customer Service

888Sport do a good job of answering a lot of questions from the FAQ in the Support section where you'll also find the online form for email contact.

Toll-free telephone numbers are provided for most of Europe and Scandanavia with a local number for other countries. There is no live chat but 888Sport has advisors available to answer the telephone between 10am and 10pm,  unfortunately you will have to do a search of the FAQs to find them. 

Reputation

888Sport may be fairly new to sports betting, but the parent company 888 Holdings PLC comes with an excellent pedigree and loads of experience in online gaming which has helped 888Sport to grow it's reputation.

In 2009, 888 announced turnover of £150 million with profits of £17 million, new customers can take confidence they will be dealing with a first rate company.

Feedback from 888Sport customers is very good and we've not encountered any complaints of slow payouts.

Verdict

888Sport have got off to a good start with their sports betting venture but there is still some way to go to match the big boys.

Providing more competetive prices would be a start so they can offer a few more stand out odds to enhance their reputation as bookmakers. Finding support information on the website could be made easier and it would be good for 888Sport to provide 24/7 customer support.

The loyalty program is good and 888Sport looks to be courting big hitters with its VIP scheme.
