Ryan's Thoughts"With strong odds and an absolutely massive sportsbook, there is a lot to like about 888sport. Part of the online gambling behemoth 888.com, the sportsbook has as many markets as anyone and the prices are always competitive. The 888sport website is easy to use and the company's mobile site is one of the best around as well."

  • Things We Do Not Like

  • Customer Service - Customer service is not the best at 888sport - especially when compared to some of the other large online gambling corporations - and support for users can be hard to know where to find on the website unless you already know where to look.

  5. Offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other 888sport registration promotion

VIP Loyalty Program

The 888 VIP Loyalty Reward Program applies to the firm's casino and poker options, so those who only want to play on the sportsbook at 888sport will unfortunately be disappointed.

Mobile Betting App Features on Tablets and Smartphones

The mobile site at 888sport works well enough but its design means it is not easy to see a lot of events at once, which is less than ideal if you are merely browsing to find a selection.

On the 888sport mobile app - which can be downloaded on to Apple and Android smartphones and tablet devices - live in-play betting is inevitably the main draw. The layout is decent enough but not so inviting that it is an app you would want to spend a lot of time on. It works easily, bets can be placed quickly, but customer service can be a little tricky to find, at least for newcomers.

Maximum Winnings

Betting limits at 888sport are broadly comparable with similar sized betting companies, but maximum winnings set at £250,000 is poor when stacked up against the top firms in the field.

For the lesser sports the limit is even tighter. Users at 888sport can win a maximum of £100,000 by betting on basketball, handball, ice hockey, cricket, darts, golf and volleyball for example, although the max payout for tennis is a little bit higher at £150,000 and American football and baseball are subject to a limit of £25,000. Despite the fact 888sport has a strong focus on horse racing, with a best odds guaranteed promotion in place to attract customers to the site, the most a user can win on the site in a single horse racing bet is just £100,000.

Football Accumulators

At 888sport there is a special promotion aimed at customers who want to place football accumulators, giving users the chance to earn as much as £25 in free bets each week.

To qualify for the promotion - which is known as The Acca Club - customers at 888sport have to opt in first, then start to place qualifying bets of at least £5, on only legs at odds of 1.1 or greater.

Those who place between three and five qualifying accumulators at 888sport get a £5 free bet, which rises to £10 for anyone who puts on between six and 10 of these bets. Users with 11 to 15 accas in a week get £15 in free bets, while the £25 free bet goes to those who put on at least 16 qualifying accumulators over the course of a qualifying period.

Customer Service

The customer service available at 888sport is not as easy to find as on most other bookmaker websites. To access support, you need to hover over the 888 logo in the top-right and then select the online help option. This takes you to the customer support pages at 888sport.

Like with most major bookies, 888sport will attempt to answer your queries in its detailed FAQ section, but sometimes you will need to click through a few menus to find what you are looking for. If you are unable to get what you need, you can click through to the contact us menu, which offers a form to fill in. It is a bit less immediate than rivals who offer a distinct live chat service.

A support telephone number is available to 888sport users based in the UK, running from 9am through to 10pm local time, with the number to call being 0800 096 4780. But with most companies in the sports betting industry now providing 24/7 customer support, it is clear that some progress could still be made by 888sport in its service.

In Conclusion / Our Verdict

While there is plenty to recommend about signing up for an account at 888sport, a few problems hold the company back from earning a place right at the top of the sports gambling industry.

The design of the website is not the best and could do with being overhauling to make bets easier to find, while the customer service is also in need of major improvements to bring it up to scratch. In addition, maximum payout limits for most sports are quite tight compared to rivals, while it takes longer to receive withdrawals from 888sport than most of the other big bookmakers online. But these are all fairly minor sticking points that could be forgotten if 888sport put a bit of work into moving up to the next level. The company's sportsbook is one of the best around, with excellent value on most sports and a huge depth to the markets on offer. Promotions are also good, so there is usually plenty of reason for regular users to keep coming back for more at 888sport.
