888 Sport in New Jersey soft-launched on Sept. 10 in the nascent NJ sports betting market, making the total online sportsbook apps seven.
888 is a subsidiary of the Gibraltar-based 888 Holdings, which already operates online casinos in New Jersey and Nevada.
888 Sportsbook welcome promotion
New players at 888 Sport can get $10 free just for signing up. Plus, on the first deposit of $10 or more, there is an additional 100 percent deposit match of up to $500.
Creating an 888 Sportsbook NJ account
888 Sport NJ is likely to use a process similar to the company’s existing online New Jersey casino, 888 Casino. Expected registration requirements include:
- Providing a Social Security number for US citizens; passport number for non-US citizens.
- Computer with Wi-Fi connection or supported mobile device with data connection. 888 Sportsbook NJ will likely provide players who don’t have Wi-Fi with free USB Wi-Fi adapters.
- Mac users may be required to enable location verification in System Preferences.
The sportsbook is likely to employ geolocation technology to detect a player’s location and confirm their participation eligibility.
888 Sportsbook deposit and withdrawal options
Once logged into the lobby, players will likely be able to make deposits and withdrawals from the online cashier. We expect several deposit options, including bank transfer, Neteller, and perhaps PayPal. PayNearMe might also be available, which allows players to make deposits at 7-Eleven convenience stores. ACH electronic checks are also a possibility.
Withdrawal methods may be limited to debit and credit cards, online banking transfers, and PayNearMe. Check by courier might also be offered.
We expect most deposit methods to be instant and for the minimum deposit size to be $5 to $10.
Withdrawals will likely take longer, probably a few days for processing followed by additional hours or days for fund delivery, depending on the cash out method. Players will probably need to confirm identity upon making their first deposit by providing scans of a government-issued ID and perhaps a utility bill or bank statement.
None of 888’s current online gambling platforms charge withdrawal fees, and we expect this to be the case for the New Jersey platform.
888 sports betting options
888’s international sportsbook offers wagering opportunities on dozens of sports, as well as what’s referred to as “novelty bets.” 888 International’s selection includes political races, television shows, the Oscars, and Nobel Prizes.
888 Sportsbook will likely follow a similar model, though with a greater emphasis on American sports. Here is a sampling of sports currently offered by 888 Sport International:
- American Football
- Horse Racing
888 Sportsbook betting markets
888 Sport NJ is expected to offer all the wagering markets typically found at online US sportsbooks including:
- Straight Bet/Moneyline
- Point Spreads
- Totals (Over/Under)
Additional markets are likely to be available for US-specific sports as well.
888 Sports New Jersey live betting
With live betting, also known as “in-game betting,” odds are continuously updated based on what’s happening in a match. Players can place a bet at any point in the game.
888 Sportsbook’s in-game betting feature – “Bet Live” – will likely be available for every sport booked by the site, including American football, baseball, basketball, and hockey. To place a live bet, players will likely start by selecting a game and market. They will then view the market’s up-to-the-minute odds and select a side. Winning wagers should be paid out instantly.
Placing a bet with 888 Sportsbook NJ
888’s international sportsbook offers a straightforward bet-placing process similar to those found at US sportsbooks already in operation.
888 Sportsbook’s NJ users will likely choose a sport to find a range of available bets, then click on their preferred odds to generate a bet slip. With the potential payout displayed on the bet slip, users will then enter the wager amount and click on “Place Bet.”
An updated bet slip with a reference number should be issued to confirm the transaction.
Users can also expect to have a “Bets History” function with 888 Sport New Jersey. 888’s overseas book offers a wager history log. You can filter through “all bets,” “open bets,” and “settled bets.”
The 888 international sportsbook also offers a cashout option, which allows users to redeem a bet before the event’s outcome is determined. The cashout feature is available for both pre-match and live-betting, though only in select markets. Players likely won’t be able to cash out free bets as those don’t usually have a cash value.
888 Sportsbook mobile access
888 Sport international offers the full sportsbook on its mobile app, which is available for both iOS and Android devices. 888 Sport NJ is expected to follow suit.
If the 888 international app is any indication, using 888 Sportsbook’s mobile platform in NJ should offer players plenty of incentives. 888 international boosts its new customers with a free €10 bet to be used exclusively on the mobile application.
There is also a wealth of daily deals and other promotions available to mobile users.
888 Sportbook NJ customer service
The sportsbook is likely to offer the following support channels:
- Toll-free phone support
- An email contact form and perhaps a direct email address
- Live Chat
A dedicated FAQ section will likely be available and should include solutions to the most common problems related to sports betting and account management.
888 Sport NJ sports betting promotions
888 Sport international offers several ongoing promotions as well as various specials that are tied directly to specific sports or events.
888 Sport NJ users will likely be eligible to receive a Free Bet or Profit Boost token to help pad their bankroll at any time. Free bet tokens are expected to come in varying amounts and be added to a bettor’s account once they’ve made a specific number of bets.
Profit boost tokens may also be awarded based on wagering activity or as a special promotion. With this deal, extra winnings will likely be added to a successful wager based on the percentage boost of the token used.
