Betting Selection – Absolutely impressive in breadth and depth!
As regards to its betting selection, 888Sport can definitely keep up with the leading bookmakers in the sports betting business. Significantly, more than 30 different sports are offered in the programme on a daily basis. Customers can choose from up to 40,000 singles best every day, thereby 888Sport lies in the absolute leading group in comparison to the competition. Like at many other bookmakers, football is the dominating sport of the betting selection of 888Sport. However, the betting provider not only has the most important European leagues such as the Premier League, the Bundesliga, the Primera Division and the series such as Champions League and Europa League in its programme.
At 888Sport, fans of some more exotic leagues are also catered for. Around the globe, there hardly seems to be a country or league which does not appear in the football betting offers of 888Sport. During our review for example, bets on matches in Honduras, Japan, Morocco, Peru, Rumania, Venezuela, Australia, Vietnam or Chile were possible. In spite of a noticeable focus on leagues within the UK, the football betting portfolio of 888Sport is also grand for betting enthusiasts across Europe and at different levels. The bookmaker offers bets all the way to the different lower leagues, the regional cups and even junior divisions. In case you also dispose of special expert knowledge or local tips, 888Sport is the ideal bookmaker for your football bets. By the way, special bets are also offered regularly on managers’ dismissals and transfers. Beyond football, popular sports like tennis, basketball and ice hockey are present above all in the sports betting selection of 888Sport.
Moreover, they are joined by the important US disciplines like baseball and American football, as well as boxing, golf, cricket, snooker, darts, handball, volleyball, winter sports, motor sports, horse racing and even fringe sports such as surfing or chess. Overall, we can only salute the betting selection of 888Sport!

Live Bets – Focus on football and tennis
The live bets offer of 888Sport orients itself strongly towards pre-match offers. Consequently, football bets dominate here as well. Optically, live betting options are very good and clearly integrated into the website. Praise must be given to the fact that it does without a separate live betting console. Thus, the betting selection remains compact and user-friendly.
Beside the current football matches around the globe, live tennis bets take up a large space. During our review, what attracted our attention very positively is the fact that 888Sport does not limit itself to matches of the ATP and WTA Tours. The bookmaker offers bets on the matches of “smaller” ITF Tournaments and Challenger Tournaments all year round as well. In addition, basketball, ice hockey, handball and volleyball are the most important sports of the live betting segment. It is perhaps a shame though that the popular Cash Out function, which is used to get out of live bets prematurely, is not offered yet.
Betting Odds – 888Sport lies in the leading group
As a rule, one can say that the payout odds of the serious and popular bookmaker level off between 90 and 95 percent. The profit margin can be taken from this value, which betting providers claim for themselves. During our test, the odds key of 888Sport was slightly above 94%, which is an absolute top value. Thereby, the odds at 888Sport are extremely stable. Shortly before the start of sports top events, we did not observe any fluctuations worth mentioning, nor were there clear tendencies towards favourites or outsiders.
Website and Mobile 888Sport App – Extensive offer
The design and the graphics of a sports betting portal are always a bit of a matter of taste and the website of 888Sport was able to convince us in our test at any rate. The colours orange and black dominate, with the structure orientating itself towards the classic menu of many online betting providers. Basically, the navigation needs a little bit of getting used to, but all things considered, it is still user-friendly. The tidy and clear integration of the live bets must definitely be praised.
Like all leading bookmakers, 888Sport offers its entire (!) betting selection including lives bets for all mobile end devices as well. Thus betting on the road is no problem at 888Sport. Users of iPad or iPhone receive the corresponding app comfortably from the App Store. Whoever uses an Android smartphone can download the 888Sport app simply in the browser. Whoever does not wish to download the app, can also access the mobile version of the website. Here as well there were no problems at all during our test.
