888Sport Mobile Betting / 888Sport Mobile App
The mobile product of the 888Sport is definitely spot on, beginning with the visible link on the mobile section of the website. There are three ways of placing bets through your mobile, with the first one requiring the customers to enter their email address and receiving a link with the mobile app through email. The second is a QR code which allows customers to scan it into their smartphone or tablet so the 888Sport app automatically loads. The third one is through the SMS service, as the customers need to sent a SMS text and will receive a text back with a direct link to the app. Furthermore, a link to the Apple App Store is available in the help menu, where the 888Sport app can be downloaded for all the iOS users.
888Sport Website Design
The layout of the 888Sport website isn’t great, but it still gives you the feeling that you have arrived at a sports betting site. It’s obvious that they have tried to go for big clarity as you have big boxes of live events on the home screen, while the left side column is kind of confusing. The ‘Live Right Now’ and ‘Starting Soon’ sections are given priority at the top of the left side column, but the text isn’t spectacular at all. The lack of highlights seems to be the main problem of the 888Sport website at the moment. The main body of the main page is split into three columned tabs offering the different live betting fixtures, upcoming events and promotions. The only good news is that 888Sport have highlighted its social media presence pretty well on the website.
888Sport In-play betting
Although 888Sport are lacking highlights at the moment, you will still get a clear layout which helps you see the action that is going on from numerous sports markets. Depth of market is more than decent as there are over 100 live markets for a top football game and upwards of 50 live markets for a tennis fixture. Another nice feature when it comes to the live betting area is the news and blog option which is full of tips, previews and news. 888Sport also have a live calendar feature showing live events and streaming coming up over the week. Quick stats is another helpful feature that shows relevant info to in-play betting such as suspension, injuries and player statistics. The biggest advantage of the 888Sport live betting area is the presence of the live streaming service, which allows you to watch live sport every day. In addition, you can watch live horse racing too if you have placed at least ₤1 on a race.
Cash Out Feature
Both Cash Out and Partial Cash out options are available at 888Sport and can be used for both pre-match and in-play sections on desktop and mobile version of the website.
