DEPOSIT & WITHDRAWAL METHODS
888 offers several deposit methods including three that also can receive withdrawals: bank transfer, cash and PayPal.
Four options, without withdrawals, VISA, Mastercard and debit cards, an online banking transfer and “PayNearMe,” a method that allows funding your gaming account 24/7.
MOBILE INTERFACE *****
Pleasant to look at, easy to use for novice bettors with ability to fashion some settings to meet an experienced user’s needs. We also appreciated the easy movement between 888’s casino and poker sites.
DEPOSIT METHODS ****
Multiple secure options offer peace of mind whether you choose bank transfer, cash deposit, PayPal, credit card, or PayNearMe, where users can fund their account using “Cash at 7-Eleven” and use a mobile barcode to compete the deposit – a Big Gulp costs extra.
EASE OF DEPOSITS AND WITHDRAWALS ****
Multiple deposit methods, too, are available with a mere click and appear quickly in your account. Depending on which option you choose, withdrawal timetable varies. Of the feedback we found online, time between withdrawal and receipt garnered the most criticism.
SAFETY AND SECURITY ****
CUSTOMER SERVICE ****
Online assistance is offered submission forms, live chat or by phone 24/7 with support by phone only available during business hours, which doesn’t necessarily align with when you may be placing bets.
USER EXPERIENCE ****
The Getting Started tab is Sportsbook 101 offering information from registration, how to navigate the site, instructions on deposits, withdrawals and payouts, plus primers on sports betting including the types of wagers from moneyline to parlays and bonuses.
888sport is a strong brand that operates in an increasingly competitive market and works to keep its customers happy with easy registration, multiple payment options, a plethora of sports to bet. In-play action is available on sports that allow them and labeled LIVE with real-time data updates. Though the interface is appealing, when seeking multi-wager options, it may work against a first-time bettor. Use the pop-up menu to add multiple picks to your bet slip.
