Deposit Bonus + Other Promos
888’s main offer is always changing.
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.
- Free bet refunds if a late goal downs your bet (hockey).
- Same for soccer if there are 5+ goals in a game.
- Win up to $750 daily in the live casino.
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.
What Payment Methods Does 888 Accept?
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.
- Click and Buy
- Pay & Play
- Wire Transfer
- Debit/Credit Cards
- Paper Checks
- Wire Transfer

888 Sports’ Cricket Betting Options (+ Others)
You have lots of cricket betting options here.
For example, look under the cricket heading and you’ll find:
- Country Championship Div 1 and 2
- ICC World Cup 2019
- The Ashes
- Asia Cup
- Sheffield Shield
- IPL Tournament Bets
- International One Day
- International Twenty20
Here are some of the bets you can make:
- 1st ball / 1st over
- Player batsman
- Team performance
- Player bowler
- Top batsman
- Match events
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:
- Champions League
- Europa League
- Six Nations Championship
- European Football
- Football (NFL)
If you’re into odd, or lesser popular sports you can also bet on:
- E-Sports (video game tournaments)
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.
888’s Overall Rating
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:
- They have a large selection of cricket sub-markets.
- You can make lots of different types of bets on cricket matches.
There are a couple of downsides too:
- No exclusive cricket promos (despite having exclusive offers for other sports).
- 888 isn’t a high limit / pro-friendly sportsbook. They’re known to cap bets on sharps FAST.
Overall though – 888 is a solid book for both cricket and general punters alike. You can’t go wrong having an account here.
