Sports selection — normal

888Sport has an "average" rating which they fit firmly into the middle of.  When we searched they were never the market leader and had consistently second rate odds across the board.  Never BAD as such but never good either.

Football

We looked at the most popular European leagues and chose the most high profile upcoming games of the week.  We study a mixture of the match odds and also the over/under 2.5 goals markets.  As of 17th June, we found the average margin on Premier League and Championship games to be around 5%, 5.13% to be exact.

In the Spanish La Lige and La Liga 2, it was worse, around 6% or again to be exact 5.98% at the games we studied.

Across the rest of Europe, when looking at the German Bundesliga, the Italian Serie A and the Portuguese Primeira Liga it was slightly worse again at just over 6%, (6.17%).

Across all leagues and all games that we studied 888Sport has an average football odds margin of 5.7%.


Bookmakers margin

Betting options — good

In terms of the number of markets that they have, they compete with the best of all of the other online bookies. Their pedigree shines through with some markets available that are hard to bet on elsewhere such as floorball, surfing, and trotting.

More popular sports such as football enjoy global coverage that explores even the minor leagues and the reserve teams, while American sports - especially basketball and ice hockey - are also well-stocked. Rugby league and Aussie rules are two other sports with a full schedule of available fixtures.

The markets are as big as you would expect from a bookie of this size with well over 100 betting lines available for a typical European football game, and around 350 for UK Premier League games.

They have everything you can realistically think of, Full-Time results, Total Goals scored, Both Teams To Score, Double Chance, Correct Score, Full Time Half time, 3-Way Handicaps, Asian Lines, Corners, Cards, Goal Scorers, Player Cards, Player Specials, Player Goals, Player and Team Shots, Scorecast/Wincast, and Match Events. 

Non-sporting and specials markets are a little hit and miss. The UK and International politics are covered to a basic level as are entertainment awards and TV specials. Specials markets within sports, such as predicting next managers, transfers, etc, are well covered.

Live — normal

The live betting markets at 888Sport are available for most sports, at time of writing you could wager on live Football, Golf, Handball, Ice Hockey, Tennis, Winter Sports and Volleyball.

With all live services, the odds are constantly being updated to reflect the state of the game. The system layout is pretty good and easy to get to grips with straight away. It not only shows the current events that can be bet on, but it also shows all of the upcoming events as well.

To access the live feature, simply click on the “Live Betting” tab on the left-hand side of the page. You can then use the interface to click between the different events you are interested in. There’s plenty of game data to look through and these are updated all the time.

They have streaming on a limited number of events but it is growing all the times.

About the bookmaker

888sport is among the oldest and most recognizable sportsbooks globally having been in the business for more than 20 years. Originally simply 888.com they were a US Casino brand but today 888sports is licensed and regulated by the UKGC & Gibraltar (Whilst also being one of the very few Internet Gaming Authorized Sites in the state of New Jersey).

888sport is a member of ESSA, the European betting integrity body. They are represented through well-known football sponsorships like Birmingham City & Nottingham Forest.

In March 2019, 888 paid £15 million for Dublin-based Dedsert Ltd, which provided the sportsbook platform for UK-licensed bookmaker BetBright. 888 CEO Itai Pazner said the acquisition “gives us the missing piece in our proprietary and technology portfolio”.

Unfortunately, more often than not people write reviews only when there are issues that still remain. When everything is running smoothly, they often do not write. We ask that you also fill in the positive field, so that the review can achieve its maximum objective. We are sure, that you will tell us the negatives, as well as the positives of these bookmakers.
