Established over a decade ago, 888 Sport has gone on to become a global leader in sports betting.
Their familiar orange branding adorns many sports uniforms and stadiums, and that focused approach to sponsorship has helped to build their audience even further. In 2013, the brand made history in the US by becoming one of the first betting brands to be licensed by the Nevada Gaming Commission to provide online gaming in the country; one of the first non-US brands to earn such an honor.
The 888 Group made a more 'physical' move into US sports betting by launching their website and app in New Jersey back in 2018, which continued their entry into the market following similar launches in Las Vegas and Delaware.
With more than ten years in the business, it goes without saying that 888 Sport have been able to tweak their product in order to deliver the best possible experience for their users.
The focus of the site is on live betting, which is pretty unique in itself. So, when you load up the sportsbook, you’ll notice that all of the white 'blocks' on the homepage refer to events that are already in progress.
So, if you’re enjoying some live sporting action and want to put your money where your mouth is, you can do so in quick time.
Of course, they offer all of the pre-match betting markets you would expect across all of the key sports, including football (NFL and college), basketball (NBA and NCAAB), ice hockey, baseball, and many more. And coming from a European background, it’s not a surprise that there is a healthy smattering of soccer, cricket, and rugby betting, among others.
Something that becomes apparent very quickly when spending time at the 888 Sport is that they do everything very well; a unique selling point in its own right. You can bet on what you want, when you want, with great prices across the match winner, points spread, totals, and player prop markets.
The 888 Sport team have partnered with Kambi to deliver their desktop platform.
Sorry, that should be the 'award-winning' Kambi, who continue to provide exceptional sports betting solutions for a number of brands in the US and beyond. Therefore, the user experience is a familiar one, but that’s no big problem because it is a tried and tested formula.
You’ll be greeted by the usual template; the available sports are listed down the left-hand side, while the main bulk of the page is given over to the relevant betting options. The homepage features the aforementioned live betting options, while the sports-specific pages display the next available games to wager on.
All of your account functions, from making a deposit/withdrawal to checking the balance of your bonuses, can be completed using the menu button in the top right-hand corner. And that’s about it! The 888 Sport desktop site is truly a breeze to use.
Download the 888 Sport mobile app to your Apple or Android device and you will have a world of betting opportunities at your fingertips.
Again, powered by Kambi, you can expect all of the features available on the 888 Sport main hub but in a nice, pocket-sized form.
Bet on sports from across the world, both in-play and pre-game, and take advantage of the Cash Out option to lock in a profit at the touch of a button.
Crucially, the page loading times of the app are rapid, which means you can get your wagers on quickly and with the minimum of fuss.

What's unique about 888 Sport? One of the things we love is the no deposit bonus offer, where new players to the brand can get bonus funds to bet with, with no need to make a deposit.
It’s a great way to get a feel for the sportsbook and decide whether or not you want to sign up for a full-on player account.
One of the betting markets where 888 Sport outstrips many of its rivals, oddly, is the TV & Novelty section. You can wager on 'Futures' for events like the Oscars, the entertainment aspect of the SuperBowl (the half-time show, etc.), or back your favorite performers on shows such as The X Factor.
It’s not everybody’s cup of tea, but if you have some particularly strong views on the entertainment world then you can finally place some bets on them.
As we’ve mentioned already, there aren’t that many unique or exclusive features about 888 Sport; but what is impressive is how well they perform the nuts and bolts of sports betting – which is a special feature in itself!
