A relatively new online bookmaker, 188Bet have been around since 2006. In that time, they have attracted a huge number of customers who have been tempted by the broad range of competitive 188Bet odds available on sports and events taking place around the world.
Famous for their Casino and eSports offerings, there is still much to be excited about when it comes to traditional sports betting. Whilst there are very few Sports promotions available, 188Bet odds are generally competitive, challenging the bigger names in the industry. At the moment, however, there are no sports promotions to claim, but stay tuned here on the page for the latest offers.
Unfortunately, it's rare that 188Bet offer free bets for their Sportsbook customers. When any 188Bet free bet offers are available, we will list them here.
Most 188Bet offers are given on their online casino. If you're looking after an online casino with many bonus opportunities then 188Bet could be for you, however, for Sportsbook punters, offers are few and far between. 188Bet do make up for this with their competitive odds offered on a wide range of sports and events.
Any offers available on their Sportsbook will be displayed here, so check back for the latest promotions!
188BET's opening layout is pretty sleek with a professional feel and stylish design. It is also fairly standard with its top navigation, and left side sports breakdown.
As in-play specialists, you'll see a big focus on promotions for upcoming in-play events on the main sports page, as well as a tools menu and easy to navigate match statistics. The clear number of in-play markets per event is also a useful guide.
All of the sports options are easily at your disposal, and you can personalise your betting experience with the 'add to my competitions' feature and a star icon which prioritises your chosen markets.
The only confusing aspect to the layout comes when you choose your competition within a certain sport. For example, if you choose Premier League under 'All Matches' you are then asked to use a strange 'Submit' button to open the match list, which doesn't always load the entire list.
On the plus side, the statistics for each match are clearly highlighted and you see an icon which tells you whether the match will include live data when it goes in-play.
The bet slip is pretty straight forward, with the option to use pre-defined stake amounts with one click or enter your own. The potential winnings from your single or multi bet shows as the amount of profit you would make, not including your returned stake.
The 188Bet mobile site comes with a straightforward design, particularly for navigating between in-play and matches ‘starting soon’ for players with time constraints. Generally if you are playing on mobile, you are looking for easy bet placement.
As with the desktop site, the in-play matches take centre stage on the landing page. Navigation from sports to specific competitions or leagues is actually simpler on the mobile, with less clicks and a more seamless user journey.
There is also an important focus on content marketing, with articles categorised as ‘All’, ‘Sports’, ‘Racing’ and ‘Poker’ to help guide your bet. You can also divide the articles by publish month.
This is an important part of their strategy to keep players on-site for longer and create a greater trust. For example, if someone doesn’t place a bet but reads an article or two on 188Bet, they are more likely to get that customer back on the site, giving them another chance at conversion.
188BET has all the normal help options you would expect, including the popular live chat and phone support.
They are keen to stress that they now have an email address exclusively for player enquiries ([email protected]), which has been introduced to ensure faster resolutions.
The contact number for the Euro region is +44 20 3608 4015, and for Asia +852 5808 3608.
We have tested the live chat feature and this has a quick response time, particularly during off peak times.
For existing customers, you just have to confirm your username, email and question to start the chat. If you are not registered, you will also need to provide your full name.
The live chat and help buttons are always accessible on the right side of the page which is a welcome addition; sometimes bookmakers can hide these features away from the home page on separate contact or help pages.
188Bet has a decent presence on social media, particularly on Facebook, where they have almost 40,000 page likes.
The YouTube channel, which was started in May 2009, has over 2,100 subscribers, with total video views of more than 2,500,000.
On Twitter 188Bet will need sustained growth to match some of the industry's biggest bookmakers. They currently have around 8,000 followers, which is some way off the 300,000 users that follow bet365.
Bet-at-home is an online betting operator which began life in Wels, Austria in 1999. It was founded by Jochen Dickinger and Franz Ömer and by 2004 it was listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and turned into a joint stock corporation. There was an even bigger change in 2009 with the company joining the BetClic Everest SAS Group, a French group focused on sports betting and online gambling which also includes Expekt.
The bet-at-home.com full product suite is available in 15 languages, the operator boasts over 4.3 million customers worldwide and has offices in Germany, Austria, Malta and Gibraltar with the main HQ in Dusseldorf. It acquired an Italian igaming and sports betting licence in 2011, an Irish one in 2015 and became licensed by the British Gambling Commission in 2014.
There’s a bet-at-home bonus for new customers which sees sign ups rewarded with a decent if not fantastic 50% deposit bonus.
