Overview of 888 NJ Sportsbook

888 Sport was one of the first sportsbooks to open in the state of New Jersey in the wake of a 2018 Supreme Court decision that permitted states to regulate sports betting.

Powered by 888.com, the site is partnered with Caesars Atlantic City Casino, one of the best-known casinos in AC. The sportsbook opened in September of 2018, and it offers a variety of reliable betting options to those located in the Garden State. The site also provides external links to statistics that players may find helpful when selecting their wagers.

888 is a subsidiary of the Gibraltar-based 888 Holdings, which already operates online casinos in New Jersey and Nevada.

Getting started at 888 NJ Sportsbook

Creating a new account on the sportsbook is straightforward. A user must click the “Sign Up” link via the app or on the website (situated in the top right-hand corner of every page) to trigger a form.

The player should then submit their personal details – including first name, last name, date of birth, and gender – and click “Next.” On the next page, the player is asked to create a username and password as well as provide additional personal information, such as email address and phone number.

The third and final page requests the player’s address and Social Security number and requires them to verify that they are 21 or older as well as accept the terms and conditions.

The player can then expect to receive a welcome email that includes a link for claiming the bonus. If using a desktop computer, the bettor needs to download software that tracks their location before placing their first wager. This software can recognize some VPN services, so players must be physically in the state to use the site.

888 Sport NJ software

888 Sport brings their expertise from European online gaming to the US. The site is similar to other books, with games on the left panel, drop downs at the top, and a pop-up for bet slips. Live and upcoming events appear on the main screen.

Prices for games are usually available in the three-column spread, making it easy to choose an option. Clicking an event brings up the variety of available markets.

What stands out is the availability of stats through a pop-up screen. Players can find out more about what teams draw attention through Most Clicked. The readout and graphics are Eurocentric so it may take a while for Americans to get used to the layout.

888 NJ Sportsbook mobile app

Yes, both Android and iOS (iPhone and iPad) apps are available. Links to download the apps can be found on the website.

The apps offer all of the website’s functionality, making it easy for players to place wagers when they are away from their computers.

Sports and betting options at 888 NJ

Players using 888 NJ Sportsbook can expect to find all of the most popular sports in North America, plus some favorite sports from other countries.

At the time of writing, the menu at the top includes around 20 sports, including:

  • Basketball
  • Football
  • Baseball
  • Hockey
  • Auto racing
  • MMA

However, the Betting Rules section of the site features 34 sports and sports categories, so the number of offerings available is all but certain to grow as the site becomes more established. Some of the lesser known examples of listed sports include netball, cyclocross, and pesapallo.

Players can also choose among an extensive array of betting options beyond the most popular markets, i.e., moneyline, spread, and totals. Premier League matches have more than 250 markets available, while NFL games feature around 130 markets each.

Finding these additional markets is a little complicated – players must first click the number indicating how many additional markets are available, then search among various categories and click on them to locate their desired market.

Betting options at 888 Sport NJ


The biggest novelty to sports betting in New Jersey is the in-game options available. Here, 888 shines.

It has been a big name in soccer betting abroad for about a decade. Soccer betting has trended to increasingly lean toward in-game action. 888 has taken its expertise overseas and brought it to the Garden State.

On the main page, the LIVE link will bring up the in-game action. Players can bet each point and game of a tennis match. In-game props exist for almost every sport. The odds move FAST and often, so be wary.

A game could see the odds come off the board and back on quickly so don’t move away from the screen if you see a game go dark.

Multi-game bets

The new sportsbook has positioned itself as a leader in multiple-bet option, making it easy for players to enjoy parlays, teasers, and more exotic combinations of wagers, such as round robins.

Six, Six-and-a-half, and seven-point teasers are available for football. At the time of writing, teasers are only available for football, but the site is expected to also provide them for basketball in the future.

Players may struggle to find these options due to the site’s layout and color scheme. For example, multi-bet options do not appear until players have already added selections to their bet slips. At that point, a menu pops up with three tabs: “Singles,” “Parlay,” and “Round Robins.”

“Singles” is the default selection and is displayed in white, while the others are grey-on-black, making them difficult to notice. Teasers, when available, are at the bottom of the Parlay menu.


As they do in Europe, 888 Sport offers the cashout option on bets before and during the contest.

Depositing at 888 NJ Sportsbook

The site offers a number of deposit methods, with the minimum deposit amount set at $10. The most popular of these options are:

  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • PayPal

Additional options include:

  • Cash at cage (at the Caesars Atlantic City Casino, where bettors can deposit cash to their accounts. Players using this option need a photo ID and account information to complete their transactions.)
  • PayNearMe
  • ECheck/ACH

Withdrawing money at 888 NJ

All available deposit methods can be used to withdraw funds. The sportsbook may require authorization or documentation before processing requests for withdrawals.

The site may also combine multiple withdrawal requests made within a 24-hour period through the same payment method as a single withdrawal.

VIP program at 888 NJ Sportsbook

Although the site does not offer a conventional loyalty program, it runs a unique rewards program with daily and weekly challenges that can provide a bankroll boost. For the daily challenge, a player wagering $50 or more on a sport with minimum odds of -200 receives a $5 bonus the following day.

A player who completes three daily challenges within one week (Monday-Sunday) receives a $10 bonus the following day. The player must then play through the bonus at least six times over seven days; otherwise, the bonus is forfeited.

Other promotions at 888 Sport NJ

The sportsbook opened during the NFL season, and it is celebrating the league with an NFL 2018 promotion.

Players who place a parlay wager on three or more NFL games in a single week (Thursday-Sunday) receive a $5 instant bonus the following day. There are no play-through requirements on the bonus, but the parlay wager must carry -200 odds or higher. Players are eligible for one bonus per week. The site may introduce additional promotions at various times.

Customer support at 888 Sport

Online help is available through a link at the bottom of the site. There don’t appear to be any links to other information, like phone numbers or email to contact customer service.
