888Sport Bookmaker Review
888Sport is a cleverly named online bookmaker. Super suspicious Far Eastern culture dictates the No. 8 is a massively lucky number and it is a fact the gambling mad Chinese tend to gamble more on anything which has the number 8 associated with it.
From our viewpoint 888Sport betting offers loads of variety – an 888Sport free bet for new customers and gives its customers no end of bet boosts and concessions.

Our Verdict: 4 Stars
A lack of 24/7 customer support is the axe we are grinding with 888Sport but, on the flip side, this established and respected site offers a lot of features rival betting sites do not.
The 888Sport free bet for new customers is straightforward and, as it represents a 300 percent bonus with no strings attached, it is very generous. 888Sport profit boost tokens and regular free bets can never be sniffed at. And, equally commendable are the little all-important touches such as ‘best odds guaranteed’.
A cracking blog section, over 35 different sports to bet on and an uncomplicated interface makes 888Sport a good place to meet and fulfil your betting needs.
