One of the best things you can do is join a legit sportsbook.
A well-known brand. A public company. An outfit authorities can hold accountable if customers are screwed over.
888 fits that profile.
So, you should sign up?
But our focus here is cricket betting. That’s the lens you need to look through before you make the leap – before you create an account and make a deposit.
Our review below covers 888 through a cricket-focused lens. That includes their betting options, banking methods, bonus, and overall rating.
By the time you’re through reading you’ll have a clear idea if 888 Sports is the right choice for you.
Let’s start with their promo offers.
Right now the offer they’re running is called Treble Winnings.
Here’s how it works:
On your first bet – which needs to be between $5 and $10 – they will give you triple your return …if you win.
Just think what this can do for your bankroll.
For example, if you bet $10 on a match with 2:1 odds you stand to win $20. Normally.
But with this offer you can walk away with $60.
Pretty sweet, right?
It doesn’t look like there’s any play through requirements, either. Another bonus.
One thing you do need to note is this: You’ll have 90 days (from the day you sign up) to participate in this offer.
That’s it for their core offer.
Another neat offer they have going is their $2,000 weekly leaderboard. Here’s how that works:
On any bet you make with odds of 1.5 or 1/2 will earn you points. Those points will determine your place on their leaderboard.
The more risk you take, the more points you can earn and the higher up the leaderboard you’ll be.
The winner each week will take home a cool $888.
That’s it for promos that all (cricket) customers can participate in. But 888 does have other market-specific offers.
And if you step out of their sportsbook, and into their casino, poker room or bingo hall, you’ll have even more promos to check out.
888 accepts a ton of banking options. They need to since they serve players all around the world.
So the following of deposit/withdrawal options is not exhaustive list.
Keep in mind many of their banking options can be used for both deposits and cash outs.
The currencies 888 Sport accepts include EUR, GBP, USD and SEK.
You have lots of cricket betting options here.
For example, look under the cricket heading and you’ll find:
Here are some of the bets you can make:
And that’s barely scratching the surface (for both categories).
From what I see, 888 is competitive with Bet365 for cricket betting. That said, several people (much smarter than I) say that Bet365 is slightly better in this department.
It’s thin. Your mileage will vary.
One thing’s for sure – there’s no shortage of options here. And, that includes other markets you can bet on too.
For example, you can also bet on:
If you’re into odd, or lesser popular sports you can also bet on:
Again, I’m barely scratching the surface here.
Most – if not all – of these markets can be wagered on live, too.
If you want an all-around casino experience you can also play in 888’s casino, poker room and bingo hall – using the same account.
And their entire site can be accessed using your computer, laptop or mobile device. iOS and Android devices can use their app, while all other phones should be able to visit their mobile-responsive website.
Read any other review and you’ll see that 888 is given a rating ranging from a B to an A-.
One problem though – this applies to their entire site. Not just cricket.
So here’s our rating for cricket betting:
We give them an A-. Here are our reasons:
There are a couple of downsides too:
Overall though – 888 is a solid book for both cricket and general punters alike. You can’t go wrong having an account here.
