One of the best features from 888sport is the live diary, as it shows details of upcoming events in the live section. Another novelty is the Icard, which in itself could be a stand-alone site from which you can watch horse racing live, keep up with results, and predict the outcomes.

There are multitude ways to scoop yourself some free bet bonuses and lots of other perks.

Other services offered
  • Casino - The winner of numerous awards and beside Cryptologic games, they finally offer Netent ones which we prefer, just as a majority of casino fans.
  • Poker - Some might argue that that the poker room doesn't have as many options as it should have, but it still gives you the popular games including Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha hi/lo and 7 Card Stud. The Quick Seat feature will allow you to navigate among money tables, without wasting too much time or it could lead you to its beginner's section. Anyway, you can expect a lot of traffic on 888 poker network, but there are some complaints by experienced players that their exchange rates aren't the best and there is no rakeback. OK, they do offer rakeback, but only in the games with higher stakes.
  • Bingo - 888Ladies is a well-known name in the bingo community, powered by Dragonfish software, but honestly, we don't have any ladies at None of us is playing bingo, in other words.
Affiliate program - If you decide to promote 888sport as an affiliate you can earn gross revenue of up to 30%, but you will have to send them at least 20 new players per calendar month. They do not carry over negative balance which is a big plus for sports affiliates.
