The betting provider 888Sport is a product of the well-known and prominent 888 Holdings PLC, which is one of the largest companies in the gaming and betting industry. In this case, however, the Cassava Enterprises Limited is responsible for the betting offer. The company is based in Gibraltar, where it is also licensed and regulated by the relevant authorities. In detail, the licensing comes from the Gibraltarian government. The licensing in turn is taken over by the responsible Gambling Commissioner of the country. All in all, 888Sport is a serious and reliable company at first glance. Fraud, on the other hand, can quite obviously be ruled out.
Our experience at a glance
So security and seriousness are ensured to an excessive degree, especially as the parent company is also publicly traded on the stock exchange. At the same time, according to our experience with 888Sport, the tradition also speaks for the provider. In addition, the betting portfolio, which is equipped with around 35 different sports, also scores points. Tippers can use here beside the Top meetings thus also a few less well-known disciplines, which does in particular the variety good.

Check: Fraud or serious?
The licensing and regulation of 888Sport by independent authorities certifies that the players work seriously. For this the enterprise had to endure numerous tests over itself, in which all substantial aspects of the offer were taken exactly under the magnifying glass. Thus is not conclusion after receipt of the license naturally not, but instead by the Gambling Commissioner of the country also in the daily business a durable control is ordered.
These aspects are surely the largest indications for the respectable function, at the same time presents the offerer however still further references. On the one hand the co-operation with the US enterprise PayPal is to be called here. The Zahlungsdienstleister accomplishes likewise test of the co-operation partners, in order to co-operate always only with safe and competent offerers. As a subsidiary of the listed 888 group, 888Sports always has a slight advantage. All in all, customers can place their bets here with a clear conscience, because dubious business is not to be feared.
The range of sports bets at 888Sport
The actual portfolio of the bookmaker is of course particularly important in addition to its seriousness. Exactly with this it would like to stand out from the competition and set individual accents. Accordingly we took the bet offer of 888Sport naturally likewise most exactly under the magnifying glass. Generally the offerer makes a very good figure, because approximately 35 different kinds of sport are made available.
Football takes over the point position
Despite this various selection the leading position in the Portfolio goes to the football. Football fans can place their bets in over 30 different countries and thus do not only have the European top leagues to choose from. Competitions from Norway, Wales, the Ukraine, Singapore, Paraguay or Malaysia are also included in the programme and even women’s football from Australia can land on your own betting slip if required. While the selection is usually limited to the first leagues and cup competitions, in Germany or Austria, for example, betting on the upper and regional leagues is also possible. In the subclass leagues, there are usually around 30 different betting markets per game, so that there is a relatively appealing selection overall.
Of course, the betting options of the top leagues clearly outperform these. For games in the Premier League or Bundesliga, for example, around 140 to 150 betting markets are opened. If the game is then transferred to the live betting area, this number is usually significantly increased again.
Exotics have also crept in
In our experience, tennis, ice hockey, basketball, volleyball and handball also play an important role in the betting offer, in addition to football. Nevertheless, this is not the end of the story, because even a few much less known disciplines have cheated their way into the portfolio. These include Cricket, Pesäpallo, Bandy and Boboll. In addition, the repertoire is also enhanced by betting on eSports, numerous special bets and bets on politics and entertainment.
Live bets are becoming increasingly popular with the public. 888Sport obviously recognized this trend at an early stage and from the very beginning placed its bets on a respectable and powerful live betting area. Here around the clock operation prevails, since also here numerous kinds of sport are available. At the same time however no disturbing waiting or loading times must be accepted here, since the program works very fluidly and unerringly. The design is very appealing, the overview remains praiseworthy. In addition, the provider provides an animation for each encounter, with which the course of the game can be reproduced down to the last detail. Further details in the form of statistics are also presented.
Odds at 888Sport
In our experience with 888Sport, the odds key is slightly more than 95 percent. This is by no means bad news, but instead to be placed in the upper midfield in comparison with the competition. So the players don’t have to fear really weak odds here, even if the real highlights are limited accordingly. If you’re looking for the best odds in your portfolio, our experience with football betting suggests that you’re right. Especially in the European top leagues, there are always very good values to be found, which are often far superior to the competition. However, the lower the league is, the lower the odds key becomes.
In our experience, there is good news for all German betting tax players. Of course, this is officially collected by the state, but the provider does not yet pass these costs on to his customers. Here can be bet thus completely tax-free. Whether this will remain still long in such a way, is unclear.
bonus for new customers
New players will receive a sports bet bonus from the bookmaker. Here the enterprise changed itself in the last months nevertheless clearly, after originally a little convincing bonus on the market was thrown. Now here a deposit bonus of 100 per cent is available, with which a bonus sum of up to 100 euro can be collected. Additionally to it the offerer promises also still another bonus of five euro for the 888Casino, whereby for this however again once sport bets must be platziert.
Necessary for this offer a qualifying first deposit of at least ten euro is. However, deposits with Skrill or Neteller are excluded. A bonus code does not have to be entered because the bonus amount is automatically activated by the transaction. However, this does not mean that the bonus is available for use. Instead, the bettors must first wager the entire deposit amount with a minimum quota of 1.50. The bonus amount is then automatically activated by the transaction. Only then will the bonus actually be credited to the player’s account.
However, in order to be able to make a withdrawal, the deposit amount must again be converted six times with odds of at least 1.50. The bonus is then credited to the player’s account. There is a time limit of 60 days. If the turnover conditions are completely fulfilled, the bonus is in the player’s possession and can be paid out without any problems.
Additional 5 Euro for the 888Casino
In a certain way free of charge there is also a bonus of 5 Euro for the 888Casino. This is activated as soon as at least one sports bet with a stake of five euros and a minimum odds of 1.50 has been placed. Within the scope of fulfilling the bonus conditions, this coupon should be automatically unlocked. Within 72 hours after the qualifying bet has been settled, the bonus amount will be credited.
This bonus is not payable, but in our experience all resulting winnings can be paid out. These are subject to a 30-fold sales requirement, which must be met within 14 days.
Deposit and payout
The deposits and payouts are of course another core area in the test, after all, all players want to deposit as easily as possible and at the same time quickly and easily come to their winnings. In order to make this possible, 888Sport makes several payment methods available to its customers. Beside the electronic purse these are for example also credit cards, Maestro, Neteller, Skrill, Webmoney, the regular bank transfer, the Paysafecard, Eps, Giropay, the Sofortüberweisung or Trustly. All in all, there is a wide selection available, which always allows free deposits and withdrawals. The required minimum deposit is ten euros.
In accordance with the requirements of the Gibraltarian authorities, withdrawals are processed exclusively via the same channels that were used for the deposit. If, for example, a player has deposited with PayPal, this method must also be used to pay out. It is important to note that every new customer must pass an identity check before the first payment. For this it is necessary to send a copy of the identity card or passport to the customer support. This of course has a little effect on the payout speed, but in general it can be rated as very positive. How high the respective payout limit is always depends on the chosen payout method.
Security and regulation
Prepared for serious consideration of licensing and regulation, there are numerous indications that work is done seriously and safely. The mentioned cooperation with PayPal and the powerful background of the 888 group should already offer enough security. In addition, the provider also takes its responsibilities for player protection very seriously. All form entries or payments are always secured with SSL encryption, so that your own data can never get lost. In addition, all players have the possibility to set their own limits or pauses for their player account. For example, stakes or losses can be limited, or breaks of several months can be taken.
Finally, however, the official licenses ensure that there is no risk of rip-off or fraud. In detail the betting provider owns several licenses, whereby for the players from Germany and Europe mainly the license of the government of Gibraltar is decisive. Players from Great Britain, on the other hand, can rely on the control of the British Gambling Commission, for players from Ireland the Irish authorities are responsible. In our experience with 888Sport, there can be no doubt as to the seriousness of the matter here.
Support and customer service
In our test, 888Sport’s customer support made a good impression and additionally underlined the serious working method within the betting provider. The Tipper can hold itself around the clock to the coworkers, who can leave thereby always a competent and friendly impression. Inquiries are answered usually without long waiting time fast and also for the Tipper understandably explained.
The only small drawback in this case is the availability for German-speaking customers. A live chat for example is not offered at all. Instead, players can use an e-mail address and a telephone hotline. The E-Mail is naturally free of charge and around the clock usable, with the telephone Hotline looks however a little differently. There is no direct number for Germans. Therefore, the international number, which is localized in Great Britain, must be used. Thus fees arise. Additionally also the availability times of the telephone Hotline with 8 to 21 o’clock are not completely optimal.
Extends the customer service after our experiences beyond that still by an FAQ range. This is available in several languages and can therefore also be recommended to German players.
User friendliness of the website
The modern appearance is immediately noticeable when looking at the website. 888Sport distances itself relatively clearly from classical patterns, so that one can stand out from many competitors optically in any case. A positive side effect in this case is that also the structure and clarity are very well succeeded. All available sports are listed on the left side of the screen and are therefore always immediately visible. Current highlights, on the other hand, can be viewed directly in the centre of the website. Theoretically, it would be possible to place a bet with just two or three clicks.
If you want to search the portfolio, you can either use the drop-down menus at the edge or use the integrated search function in the center. In our eyes, this is almost the better choice, as all desired games can be displayed immediately. All in all, we are quite enthusiastic about the website, even if one or the other Tipper may be missing the graphical highlights.
In order to always be able to meet the needs and requirements of our customers, 88Sport launched its own app on the market some time ago. With this app, all bets can be placed while on the move, as no single betting market has to be abandoned. The additional functions of the regular website have also been integrated. The 888Sport App is available in different versions. If you have an iPhone or iPad, you can choose between a download version and an alternative in the form of an optimized web app. If you use a device from another manufacturer, you only have the web-based version available.
Optically, all versions are convincing because they work with an intuitive design. The navigation succeeds so in the easiest way and is even for the most inexperienced customers no problem.
After 888Sport withdrew a while from the German market, the offerer returned now with timpani and trumpets again. The enterprise could convince in our test particularly with an overbreadth Portfolio, which contains nearly 35 different kinds of sport. In addition, we were also convinced by the new customer bonus, with which all players can secure a full bonus amount of up to 100 euros at fair conditions. We currently see potential for improvements above all in the area of customer service, where German players in particular are still at a slight disadvantage. However, this aspect is offset by the lack of betting tax for customers from Germany. Bottom line thus a quite harmonious offer results, which can be designated not only as respectable, but also as unterhaltsam and interesting can.
I am inspired by the sport book. I found this function in the 888Sport Portal for the first time. Here you can always find the most important sports and the best games.
