888Sport sportsbook is part of the 888 Holdings plc company, which was launched in 1997. However, 888 didn’t introduce their 888Sport sportsbook until 2008 as they had previously focused on online poker and online casino activities.
888Sport are licensed and regulated to offer real money betting under the laws of Gibraltar for the European Union countries, the UK Gambling Commission for UK and the Ireland’s Revenue Commissioners for the customers in Ireland.
They have been involved in loads of sponsorship deals over the past years, having sponsored the Snooker World Grand Prix, Magnolia Stakes at Kempton Park, the Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown.
In addition, they have also sponsored a number of clubs such as Sevilla, Birmingham and Rodovre Mighty Bulls.
The mobile product of the 888Sport is good, beginning with the visible link on the mobile section of the website. There are three ways of downloading the app, 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 send an 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.

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, whilst the left side column is slightly 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. One positive is that 888Sport have highlighted its social media presence pretty well on the website.
With regards to In-play betting you will still get a clear layout which helps you see the action that is going on from numerous sports markets. Depth of markets are good and theree 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 are 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.
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.
The Help section can be found right in the middle of the main page of the 888Sport website. Clicking on this will show you all the available contact options, including a live chat feature, other contact details and a wide FAQ section.
