Structure and Clarity – Simple menu navigation of 888Sport in the app


In the test, the structure and the clarity of the 888Sport Sports Betting App played a large role of course. Since experience showed that the betting selection of 888Sport App was convincing, it did not disappoint us with the structure and menu navigation either. The menu itself is composed of two sections. In the lower section, everything is mentioned that is important for the betting slip. Whoever looks at the top left finds a menu which can be folded out. Here the sports and the accesses to sports bets are listed. In addition, there is a button, which redirects to the personal settings

Whoever would like to enter his betting account can simply go over the button “Betting Account” at the top corner on the right side. There is here a very good overview of the current bets and the bets which have already been performed. Moreover the way leads to the casino, if the wish arises to be active here. In this area there is an overview of the current promotions and the personal data can also be edited. The footer disposes of a button as well, which can be used to contact the support.

Experience shows that 888Sport definitely knows how to keep customers because the app disposes of a variety of special functions, which can be used. The shortcuts include the following functions:

  1. My Account: Whoever chooses this finds all important functions regarding the administration of his account. Here it is possible to carry out deposits, request a payout or modify the data.
  2. Bet Slip: Via Bet Slip, the betting slip is visible and therefore this function is particularly important for users. One can see which current bets there are, as well as those that have not been executed yet. The presentation is particularly clear, which represents a bonus point for the provider.
  3. Bet Now: With this button you go directly to the current offer. Whoever does not want to lose any time simply clicks on it and is already with the betting selection available right now. This is valid for Live-Bets as well as for Pre-Match-Bets. Especially the live betting section is set up very well.
  4. Bet History: Sometimes one would like to see which bets one has already placed. In Bet History, only the bets are shown, which have already been concluded.
  5. Free Bets: If in the 888Sport Sports Betting App there happens to be good offers of the bookmaker at the moment, then those can be seen here. Beside the presentation of the bonuses, there is also a glimpse of the respective bonus requirements.

Conclusion: The menu navigation of the 888Sport App is really good. Even when someone does not have much experience, he will hardly have problems to find what he is looking for.

Deposits and Payouts: Fill up or empty the account simply


In order to be able to offer a complete test of the 888Sport App, information regarding the possible deposits and payouts is of course necessary.  This can be carried out in the app without any problems. To do so, the button for payment is simply selected. An area then opens up where deposit possibilities are listed and can be chosen. The choice for deposits as well as payouts is large. Nevertheless one should keep in mind that the chosen method for deposit implies that the payout will also take place via this method. So if you then decide to choose a different payment method every single time, then the payout amount will also be paid out via the different options, so in parts. Therefore it is recommendable to decide upon one method and to stick to it.

Deposits are possible via online bank transfer as well as by credit card, using Skrill or Neteller, via WEbmoney or PayPal as well as clickandbuy. In addition, Sofortüberweisung can be chosen. Per day, bettors cannot win more than 250,000 pounds, the payout per day is limited at 25,000 pounds. Up to 10,000 pounds per day can be deposited and up to 40,000 pounds in one month.

Conclusion: The selection of methods for depositing is large, the payout always takes place using the same way as the deposit.

The mobile bonus – what does it look like?
