If you haven’t heard, in May 2018 the US Supreme Court overturned the 1992 PASPA act, that had originally outlawed sports betting in the US. As this is now overruled, sports fans from New Jersey, and hopefully across the US in the future, can now take part in Sports Betting at all the various online Sportsbooks, such as 888 Sport.
THIS IS CURRENTLY FOR NEW JERSEY CUSTOMERS ONLY. WE HOPE TO ADD MORE STATES AS THE TIME COMES!
NOTE: To receive incentive: After signing up, depositing, and betting, please let us know your 888 username and your RC username so we can confirm your RC membership! Send an email to [email protected] with the necessary information.
Creating an 888Sport Account
Creating an 888 Sportsbook account is simple. Simply click on the “Join Now” button located at the top of the page, which will provide a registration popup showing various registration forms required to sign up. For the initial US site, users must be at least 21 to sign up, as well as be located physically in New Jersey (determined via geolocation technology). This may change, as more US States create laws allowing online sports betting.
888 Sportsbook Promotions
Like most Online Sportsbooks, 888 Sport has a sign up bonus that’s available for first time players who use a specific promo code. The current promotion provides $30 worth of free bets, and only requires registering and placing a qualifying bet of $10 or more. (Qualifying bets must be made with 30 days of signup, with a minimum odds of -200). Once done, you’ll likely receive two $10 free bet credits, as well as a $10 free mobile bet credit in your account, although this is subject to change based on 888 Sport’s US site launch.
888 Sport also offers American ACCA (or accumulator) promotions, that requires five selections or more with minimum odds of -333.33 plus an overall stake of $5+. Upon winning an ACCA bet, you can win a bonus 10%+, and if you only lose by one bet you can receive up to a $25 free bet credit to your account.
There are also additional promotions that are occasionally provided throughout the year at 888 Sport, which usually include things like free bet deals and price boosts on major sporting events.
888 Sportsbook Options
As 888 Sport was initially an international Sportsbook, 888’s range of sportsbooks covers almost all of the popular sports from around the world, including US options from the MLB, NHL, MLS, and NBA, as well as offerings for some more popular international sports like Football(/Soccer) cricket, horse racing, tennis, snooker, and basketball. 888 Sport doesn’t currently have a minimum or a maximum stake you can make when placing bets, but 888 Sport can limit any bet’s total payout overall to $250,000 depending on the league, sports, or offers. It is expected that 888 Sport will keep win-only options, plus Parlays and straight line bets, for US bettors.
888Sport Deposit and Withdrawal methods
888 Sport currently allows users to deposit using most common credit/debit cards, pre-paid cards, and e-checks/bank transfers as well as various e-wallets like Paypal, Neteller, Skrill, WebMoney, and more. The minimum deposit is currently $10 for all deposit methods.
Regarding withdrawals, 888 Sport currently supports the aforementioned e-wallets, ACH-transfers, and checks by courier, and can take anywhere from 2-14 business days depending on withdrawal method chosen. Users may also be required to provide a government issued photo ID when they process their first withdrawal.
888 Sportsbook Live Betting
Currently, there is no information on whether 888 Sport will provide live betting opportunities for New Jersey players, however based on their current international offerings it’s likely to be included at or near 888 Sport’s US launch. Live betting will likely cover the aforementioned sports listed above, as well as various E-Sports which include League of Legends, Counter-Strike: GO, and other e-sports events.
888 Sport Mobile Offerings
888 Sports’ international site is currently available on mobile via Google Play/Apple App Store apps, as well as via a dedicated mobile site that can be used from any mobile phone browser. If the 888 Sport mobile app isn’t available for your location on the above mentioned app stores, 888 Sport offers a direct download straight from their website which will also likely be available for US users. It should be noted that the US side of 888 Sport’s mobile app may take anywhere from 6-12 months to go fully live after launch.
