General Information

888 Holdings PLC – the operator of the renowned bookmaker 888sport – is a British company established in 1997 as a provider of online gaming entertainment. It currently specializes in sports betting, casino gambling, poker, bingo and other games. The position of the company has been achieved through constant dedication toward improvement and diversification. Starting out as an online casino, 888 gradually introduced all the aforementioned other types of services.


The sports betting branch was introduced in 2008 and has experienced growing popularity ever since. As a publicly traded company, listed at the London Stock Exchange in 2005, its activity is regulated and monitored, thereby raising its credibility among potential customers.

Range of Bets and Odds Formats

The wide spectrum of bets makes 888sport an excellent choice when it comes to wagering, especially due to the depth it adds to the available sports. Thus, there are 14 basketball leagues, 8 cricket championships (along with 4 major events at anytime) and even 3 darts ones among the countless football events and so many other sports that are intensively covered. Racing (horses and greyhounds) receives special attention on the official site, with two separate entries – RACING and RACING I CARD.

Special bets are offered in a wide spectrum, with handicaps and multiples of several designations. Handicaps can be Asian, type 1, type A, reverse or double; a few methods of wagering using multiples are accumulator, double, Yankee or Super Yankee. There are 5 rules for the player to be guided by when availing himself of any of these possibilities, but when counted one by one, the number of options using multiples is simply immense.

Live betting is yet another benefit to be derived from 888 sport, allowing the client to decide on placing a wager and its type as the action develops. Events available for in-play betting are continually updated and there is something unique to bet on at any given hour.

Last but not least, the company offers promotions to all punters, which include tickets to high profile football games (e.g. the Champions’ League final this year at Wembley) and, welcome bonuses and weekly bonuses redeemable at 888casino as well, among others.

Odds can be displayed as decimal, fractional or American, depending on the client’s preference. Sign-up here.

Casino and Poker Room

When it comes to casino and poker room activity, 888 is strong in both these domains. Critics themselves agree that the standard of the experience is unsurpassable by the competition, and even though 888 Holdings does not offer the greatest selection of games, the graphics and design for the existing ones are of irreproachable quality.

Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha hi/lo and 7 Card Stud are the main poker games played at 888poker, with tournaments and specials available for all of them. A comprehensive tutorial is available for the novices, where the most particular details are explained and tips and hints are given to all players desirous of improving their game. Once signed up, a welcome bonus worth $400 is awarded, followed by a multitude of others as the gamer gets more action.


The company’s casino is often referred to as “the largest in the world”, a title that rivals do not contest. Akin to the poker room, it is packed with bonuses and promotions and the gaming options are constantly extended in both quality and quantity. Blackjack, roulette, baccarat and slots are all well-covered, the latter now available with many popular themes, such as Dawn of the Dinosaurs or Clash of the Titans. Click here to register.
