888 Sport Review - Summary
888 Sport have been around since 2008 and are today one of the most recognisable brands in the gambling industry. Down the years they have sponsored a number of football teams like Nottingham Forest and Birmingham City, and have had celebrity endorsements from footballers such as Ian Wright and Santiago Canizares. Big brands don’t always do it best though, but does 888 Sport buck the trend?

In truth, 888 Sport say that they offer a lot of “New Features”, but it’s a pretty standard selection of features. There’s no live streaming, no acca boosts, or anything like that. What you do get though is the ability to pick favourites which means you can keep an eye on the matches and games you’re interested in.
To combat the fact there’s no live streaming, there are live heat maps and stats for in play events like football and tennis, and they work really well too. You can see that in action in the middle image above.
There’s also touch ID so you can log in using your fingerprint which makes logging in safer and quicker. And finally, there’s also a coupon navigation which allows you to easily browse accas on the same markets.
888 Sport then eh, eh. What’s it like, is it nice? Is it pretty? It’s not too pretty is it? Hmm, to be honest, I don’t really know why that would be a problem. Anyway, I’ll stop talking to myself and I’ll get on with telling you whether it’s good or not.
And it is good, yes! I mean, it’s not going to win many awards, it’s not the most beautiful girl at the dance, and it’s not bubbling with the greatest personality ever, but it’s functional and pretty, plus if it was your partner, you’d be pretty confident they wouldn’t cheat on you (so long as you treated them right, of course).
But I just get this niggling feeling that it could be a bit better. 888 Sport is a massive brand – I mean they even have a Wikipedia page, ffs – but it just doesn’t match up online to the other big players in the game. As the great Roy Walker would say, “It’s good, but it’s not great.”
Actually, he said “but it’s not right”, didn’t he? Sake.
