The 888 group run a number of gambling holdings including sports betting, poker, bingo and casino. Each platform is run from one main betting portal since the company’s introduction in 1997. The company now turns over nearly $250 million a year, has 900 employees, is registered on the London Stock Exchange and is up there with some of the biggest betting agencies in the world.
Sports Betting and Gaming Offers
888 cover a comprehensive range of sports from baseball, basketball, boxing, darts, golf rugby union and tennis. Their most comprehensive markets come in the form of football (where you can choose from long term bets such as league winners, to matches on a weekly basis compromising of over 200 markets) and Horse racing (that include daily betting markets along with Ante Post racing and Anti Post Greyhound racing).
Also include is their casino (including roulette, slots, live casino and blackjack), poker (with $1 million daily challenge series and new poker software) and games (ranging from Monopoly, Deal or No Deal, Scratch cards and lotto).
Bonuses, Promotions and Rewards
You can currently get a free L50 from their sports book when you register a new account and place the equivalent in bets. The bonus unfortunately is not quite as simple as it may first appear. To gain the full L50 you need to place up to 5 bets of L10 or more and then you will receive a free L10 bet token. The tokens are released on your 1st, 5th, 9th, 13th and 17th bet, which all require you place L10 or more on these specific bets. 888 also run a free L5 no lose bet when you try their mobile betting app along with a host of money back specials on sports events.
Casino players can instantly get a 100% matched first deposit bonus of up to L800. You will also become eligible to take place in 888’s L1 million spin contest where you get 7 free spins a week for a year. If that’s not enough you earn cash whilst you play by earning VIP points and spending them as you wish in their VIP store. Their poker room will give you L5 absolutely free when you download and register a new account.
Customer support is reasonable, but you can only use their online contact form. No live chat or email address (that we could find) really does limit customer support. They do offer a comprehensive FAQ section with a host of information on there already, however.
Cash outs are on a reasonable timescale for most, but it’s surprising to see that a withdrawal back to a debit card will take 8 business days. It’s definitely not an industry leader as a result. Other cash out options are available but you won’t be seeing your money anytime before 3 business days from 888.
