I decided to write my review of 888 after Cheltenham, during the festival I placed various accumulators and obviously I wanted to get the most bang for my buck so checked my accumulators on various websites, around 50% of the time 888 came on top with the best odds (sometimes 50% better than the highstreet bookies) the rest of the time it was usually Bet365 on top! When placing Accumulators online it is vital that you get the best odds as this can means thousands of £ in missed value if you don’t!
The 888Sport website isn’t the greatest but it is pretty fast and easy to use and has a descent mobile interface (and a £5 no risk bet for first time users)
888 offer the usual array of banking options such as credit/debit cards, Neteller, Ukash etc however withdrawals seemed to take a bit longer than most places, though this may have been to the added cheltenham traffic.
888 offer new customers £88 in free bets, this is released in £10 chunks when you start wagering and placing £10 bets, this is good as many other bookies require you to risk larger sums in order to get your free bet (i.e. bet £50 get £50) this means you can risk less and still get free bets. Mobile users also get a £5 risk free bet (your first losing bet is refunded)
As you may be aware by the high number of TV ads 888 not only offer sports betting but also a Casino and popular poker room, you can claim bonuses at both (£88 no deposit casino bonus + 100% match and £12 no deposit poker bonus)
Overall 888 is a necessary component to your sport betting arsenal, with some fantastic odds and easy to unlock bonuses they shouldn’t be overlooked.
