888Sport are one of the more recent bookmakers to appear on the market. They launched in 2008 and mostly offered sports betting in European markets, however, they now offer a range of products such as poker and casino. Whilst they’re probably not considered as one of the leading bookmakers, they do offer competitive betting odds and one of the main advantages of their site is the ability to bet on a range of exotic sport including trotting, sumo and bandy.

All you need to do is once opening an account (information on how to do that is in the next section) you need to deposit and place at least £10 on a bet at odds of 1/2 or greater, the promotion will then be automatically applied and if that opening bet loses you’ll get your stake returned as cash. Simple as that. Make sure that you use promo code 30BACK when registering.

T&C’s of the sign-up offer
I always recommend you thoroughly read the terms and conditions of any sign-up offer before joining so that you’re fully aware of how it works and can use it to the best of your advantage. This 888Sport offer is pretty straight forward one but there are a few key points you should bear in mind:

Other 888 Sport features and offers
888Sport offers a range of offers which you can find in the ‘promotions’ section of their website/app. One of their unique offers is getting a £5 free bet every time you win at 4/1 or bigger. This is limited to one per day and a minimum bet of £10.
Another unique offer is if you bet £5+ on an American sports accumulator with 5+ selections and it loses by one leg, you’ll get a free bet refund up to £25. I’m seeing loads of you in the UK take a massive interest in American sports and I think this is a great offer that you could take advantage of as it’s exclusive to American sports and I haven’t seen any other bookmaker offer something as unique as this.
You can stream every UK, Irish and US horse race if you stake £1+ on the race and you get the best odds guaranteed on UK and Irish races. This means that if you take a price with 888 on a horse and it starts at a bigger one elsewhere, they’ll pay you out at those odds.
888Sport also have a few casino offers including winning a bonus every time the roulette ball hits the number 8 and the chance to win £1,200 in bonuses daily if you play VIP live. Full info and T&C’s of 888’s offers can be found on the ‘promotions’ section of their app/website.
Layout and interface
At the end of the day, some people simply don’t care about odds, offers or features. Some people just want an app that is easy to use and understandable.
Whilst I don’t use 888Sport for my day to day betting, the overall feel of the app and website is very much like you have arrived at a sports betting site. All the betting options can clearly be found on the left-hand side menu system and the info that shows the odds and the betting markets is clearly laid out. It’s a sleek design and is user friendly.
I would recommend you give 888Sport a try. They’re clearly wanting to be little different from the other bookmakers with more exotic sports and offers such as the American accumulator refund. That’s as well as the great bet £10, get £30 in free bets sign up offer.
You also might find that the app/website best suits you and makes your betting experience easier and more enjoyable. I think that’s an important part of your betting experience as you want to enjoy the features and be able to easily navigate the website/app. I suggest that once you’ve signed up you check out the ‘promotions’ section of their website and make the best use out of each offer.
As always, please make sure you read the T&C’s of any offers and always gamble responsibly. 888Sport has plenty of advice on its website regarding responsible gambling. You can also limit your account or self-exclude if you ever feel that to be a good decision.
