888sport app

If you’re serious about sports betting (or if you just like a casual flutter every now and then), don’t sleep on the 888sport app.

888sport packs plenty of neat features into a neat UX. Yes, it might look a tiny bit dated to some, but functionality is far more important to us and you’ll not get any clunky menus or annoying lag with this app.

All of the most popular sports for betting in Canada are covered in impressive depth both pre-match and in-play, with one of the best Bet Builders in the business allowing for loads of wager customization.

It’s also good to see a decent selection of payment options, including Interac and Apple Pay. However, the withdrawal times are a little on the slow side if we’re being honest.

Key 888sport app features

We've done a deep dive into 888sport's best features so you know exactly what you'll get when you sign up:

888sport odds

One of the 888sport features that is most important to us at Betting Apps HQ is the quality of the odds on offer.

Getting a good price matters whether you’re casual, every-once-in-a-while sort of bettor or a more active, regular player.

888sport has something of a reputation for providing decent value across its various global markets, and Ontario is no exception.

888sport value is hard to beat
Ryan

Ryan

The bettingapps.com experts checked through the more popular betting markets (money lines on major league sports - that sort of thing) and found that 888sport regularly matches prices on offer at bet365 and provides better value than competitors like BetMGM and Caesars Sportsbook.

888sport app UX

I guess the 888sport app UX is not really a specific ‘feature’, but it’s definitely something that helps this sportsbook stand out from the rest of the pack in Ontario.

The key thing is that 888sport keeps its app UX simple.

There’s no slow-loading, clunky pop ups or awkward menus. It’s a clean design that makes it easy to get to where you want, when you want.

Important sections like your account, specials, and BetFeed are never more than a button-press away.

One criticism is that you can definitely see that 888 started out life as a casino brand before moving into sports betting - different font and icon choices could give it a more modern feel. But we’re splitting hairs at this point.

888sport Bet Builder

Many online sportsbooks have their own Bet Builder features that allow us to combine selections from different markets on one game for a custom single bet. However:

There aren’t many sportsbooks that execute their Bet Builder as well as 888sport.

The 888sport app Bet Builder has a fantastic selection of markets available to combine, from macro stuff like money line and spread right down to the micro-level player props that can really boost the odds when called correctly.

It’s all packaged in a really neat popup window/overlay on the main event screen, so swiping between options and building your bet really couldn’t be easier.

888sport BetFeed

Yeah, having absolutely heaps of markets open for betting is obviously a good thing, but sometimes you just want to filter the noise and view only the markets you’re interested in.

Thankfully, the BetFeed feature on the 888sport app makes browsing events and markets an absolute breeze. BetFeed allows you to filter and sort betting options by:

  • Sport
  • Bet type (i.e. straight or parlay, pre-event or live)
  • Bets placed most recently
  • Most popular bets
  • Event start time

When you’ve got limited screen real estate on a smartphone, BetFeed is a godsend.

888sport recommendations

Like BetFeed, the 888sport app recommendations feature helps us to cut through to the best betting opportunities.

Once you’re logged in, this feature gives you quick access to markets that have recently been bet on, markets on which players have recently won bets, plus trending picks.

888sport specials

You can navigate to 888 specials via the app’s main menu. Here, you’ll find a range of bets curated by 888sport on a particular event or game day.

Some of these bets benefit from excellent odds and we like specials because they open up interesting betting opportunities that we wouldn’t have otherwise considered taking.

888sport stats center
Ryan

Ryan

This is one of my favourite features on the 888sport app.

The 888sport app stats center enables bettors to verify their wagers against up-to-date facts and figures, all without having to leave the app.

Head to heads, schedules, standings, form, and streaks are all easily viewable, while players can also take a trip down memory lane via the archive tab.

888sport live streaming

Unfortunately, live streaming is not available at 888sport in Canada.

That’s certainly a drawback compared to the likes of BetMGM, BetRivers bet365, all of which have extensive live streaming options.

Lack of live streaming aside, though, the live betting experience is excellent on the 888sport app. There are plenty of stats available for each sport plus in-play pitch animations that make it easy to follow the action with direct broadcasts.

888 sports betting

Our experts have highlighted what’s great about 888sport’s markets for the most popular sports for betting on in Canada:

888sport NHL betting

Hockey is Canada’s number one sport so the wide range of pre-game, in-play and futures markets for the NHL, SHL and other major hockey tournaments at 888sport should surprise exactly no-one.

The 888sport app is one of the best sportsbooks around for puck line bets, largely because the odds on offer are seldom matched.

There’s a solid selection of NHL futures, too, if you’re certain you know who’s going to bag the Vezina Trophy or if, for some reason, you’re convinced the Canadiens will crush the Eastern Conference…

888sport NBA betting

NBA, and basketball more broadly, gets decent coverage on the 888sport app.

Each fixture features spreads, totals, money lines, 3 way handicaps plus quarter and half betting pretty much as standard.

Bettors can also get stuck into Bet Builders and more in depth player props for the major NBA and international games.

Each basketball match is superbly supported by the extensive stats center.

888sport NFL betting

Football fans can back their hunches on the 888sport app on an impressive range of markets for both NFL and CFL fixtures.

Money line, points spread and total points are the bread and butter, while Bet Builders and parlay options make for an extensive overall selection of football bets.

Futures are more extensive on Football - in particular the NFL - than on pretty much any other sport featured on 888sport.

You can bet on regular season wins for each team, NFL outright winner, most passing TDs, most receiving TD’s, coach of the year, MVP, teams to make the playoffs and much, much more.

888sport MLB betting

The 888sport app is a good choice for baseball sharps, sharks, newbies and everything in between.

Solid odds goes without saying at 888sport and the app UX makes it easy to bet on markets like total runs over/under and run line using the neat sliders.

The Perfect 10 game is also a sweet addition to the regular baseball sportsbook markets.

888sport baseball betting - expert insight
Ryan

Ryan

If we were to change our rating of baseball betting on 888sport from ‘good’ to ‘great’, we’d like to see more player props were open for betting outside of the Bet Builder. (DraftKings and FanDuel both do a better job on player props.)

There are some nice futures options but a wider selection of these would also be a plus. Those two improvements to the 888sport baseball offering would just about make up for the lack of live streaming.

888sport esports betting

A wide selection of esports betting markets are available on the 888sport app.

If tactical team shooters are your thing, you’re in luck because all the CS:GO, Valorant and Overwatch events worth wagering on are open for betting pre-game, with plenty of options remaining available in-play, too.

MOBA bettors are also well catered for with lots of variety in the Dota 2, League of Legends and Honor of Kings markets.

The 888sport app falls a bit short, however, when it comes to sports sim esports events like FIFA, with Rocket League the only option covered in this area.

888sport soccer betting

We’d be surprised if you didn’t find the soccer bet you’re looking for on the 888sport app.

Corners, goals, cards, half markets, three-way and asian handicaps plus goalscorer markets are all open for betting on big soccer fixtures, with most options also available on some of the more obscure games, too.

The easy-to-use Bet Builder delivers once again for soccer.

I'm not good enough at math to calculate the total number of potential custom bet combinations you can come up with on the Bet Builder but it’s definitely a lot.

As with other sports markets on the 888sport app, you can be confident that the price you’re being offered is far closer to the value end of the market than the rip-off end.

888sport - other markets

Outside of the main sports that Canadian bettors like to wager on, there’s a huge selection of markets on other sports, including:

🦘 Australian Rules
🥊 Boxing & MMA
🏏 Cricket
☘️ GAA
🏌️ Golf
🏉 Rugby
🏄‍♂️ Surfing
🎾 Tennis

It’s always fun to see non-sport options, too. You can, for example, bet on the next James Bond after Daniel Craig in the Novelty Bets section of the 888sport app.

888sport deposit methods

888sport accepts the following deposit methods for players in Canada:

  • Visa cards
  • ApplePay
  • Interac
  • Mastercard
  • Paysafecard

Note that, while you can deposit using all of the methods above, 888sport is not able to process withdrawals to Mastercard or paysafecard.

If you deposit using one of these two methods, you will need to withdraw via a Visa credit card, Interac (if you have used Interac to deposit at some point in the past), or good old fashioned wire transfer.

888sport withdrawal time

Once you’ve won your bets on the app and requested a withdrawal, it will take up to one day for that request to be processed. Once approved, 888sport advises the following withdrawal payment time frames:

  • Visa credit/debit: Up to 5 days
  • ApplePay: Up to 5 days
  • Interac: 1-3 days
  • Wire transfer: 4-7 days

888casino app

The 888 brand is more traditionally associated with casino games than sportsbooks - after all, that’s the area 888 has been active in the longest.

The 888casino app is a predictably high quality effort, with players physically located in Ontario able to play a huge range of live casino, slots, jackpots, and table games (many of which are exclusive to 888).
