888bet is operational in Zambia. In this 888bet review, we have tested all the features of the bookmaker and detailed our findings in this article.

❓ 888bet Review

888bet is an international bookmaker and one of the best betting sites in Zambia currently. The bookmaker has many wonderful features, which we analyze in this 888bet review.

First is the sports section, which contains the major sporting events that Zambians love. But also, other sections like the casino and virtual sections offer alternative betting when the sports section is not in season.

Even though it is an international bookmaker, 888bet has localized the payment methods so that it is easier for Zambians to deposit and withdraw money in their currency. We also like that the registration process is simple, with just a requirement to enter your mobile number.

Below, we summarise our 888bet Zambia review in the table with the features we like and the things we feel the bookmaker can improve.

⚽ 888bet Sports Betting Review

888bet is a sportsbook and casino that also offers virtual games. So to kick off this 888bet review, we start with the major sections of the bookmaker and the additional features such as live streaming and live bet.

888bet Sports Betting

Sports section 

The sports section is the best place to start this 888bet review. 888bet is a major player in the sports betting space and has developed the sports section to match the desires of Zambian bettors.

However, we feel the bookmaker can do better by offering more sporting events. Some of the games available on the 888bet Zambia website include.

  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Volleyball
  • Cricket
  • Rugby
  • American Football
  • Ice Hockey

Live betting/streaming

The bookmaker offers a live betting function. To access the section, click the ‘Live betting’ tab. This displays the sports that are available for live betting. The live betting market at 888bet Zambia is sufficient and matches the normal betting markets.

However, the odds fluctuate wildly to reflect the changing situations of the games and require that you can make predictions quickly. The only challenge is the lack of a live streaming feature to understand the game’s progression.

This means that you have to follow the games with the limited match tracker, which only displays the highlight of the games. 

Virtual sports

You can decide to bet on normal sports, or you can bet on virtual sports, which are not in short supply in 888bet Zambia. You can access the virtual sports section by clicking the tab on the home page. 

On the virtual sports section, you have three sections. The first is the sports section that features games like Greyhound racing, Motorbike racing, basketball, and the football league, which mirrors the English Premier League. There is also Real fighting, a virtual game for MMA fights, the first of its kind.

Finally is the spin 2 win, simply a version of lucky numbers. You can make your pick of these several games and have a good time even when the sports season is over.

Jackpot 

888bet also offers a Grand jackpot which is a football jackpot. This jackpot is a match-winner jackpot that is available weekly. You must predict the correct match winner for 18 football matches from different leagues.

To participate in the jackpot, you must register an account with the bookmaker because it is free to play. You are entitled to one ticket weekly, and you can use the “Feel Lucky” feature to make random picks.

Odds

The odds on 888bet are very competitive, and the bookmaker continually ensures that it offers the best value. To keep to this, the bookmaker offers an ‘EPL Price Winner’ bonus that guarantees the best prices for matches in the EPL every weekend, including Mondays.

In addition, there are other promotions like the 2-for-1 bonus that improves the value of your bet. For example, the 2-for-1 promotion offers you free bets when you meet some conditions. Another is the Golden ticket which gives you a free bet of K25 for 36 weeks of the 2022/2023 football season.

eSports

eSports is the next big thing in sports betting. eSports is comprised of electronically played sports such as the FIFA titles for football, NBA2k for basketball, and other titles that correspond to different sporting events. Some other titles focus on fictional gameplay, such as Counter-Strike, League of Legends, Overwatch, Rainbow Six, etc. 

As we rounded up the 888bet review for the sports, we were disappointed to discover that the bookmaker doesn’t offer eSports betting. However, we hope that it will be introduced soon.

🃏 888bet Casino Review

In addition to the sportsbook, 888bet Zambia offers a casino section with all the important games like slots, blackjack, baccarat, poker, roulette, bingo, video poker, and others. For casino lovers, the 888bet casino provides a lot of fun games to play. 

The live casino also brings the quick fun of playing casino games to real life. With the live casino, 888bet partners with the best game providers like Evolution Gaming, Betgames, and Vivogaming, to bring the experience of physically going to a casino to your palms.

Some games in the live casino include poker, blackjack, baccarat, roulette, video bingo, and others. The only drawback is that there is no welcome bonus for casino games. However, there is a bonus for the Aviator game, which is a casino game.

🎁 888bet Bonus Review

In testing out the bonuses for this 888bet Zambia review, we found out there is no welcome bonus for new customers. We are used to seeing a welcome bonus, but the bookmaker made up for this lack with the number of other promotions available. We analyze the different promotions below.

Multi bonus

The Multi bonus is an accumulator bonus that offers 500% on your accumulator bet. You need at least 3 games on your bet slip to access this bonus. The bonus amount starts from 3% for 3 games and climbs to 500% for 50 games. All the games must be 1.20 odds and above to qualify for this bonus.

Bet Supercharge

The bet supercharge bonus is an addition to the multi bonus, but for midweek football. With this bonus, you get an additional 50% bonus on an accumulator bet with 10 games and above. But since you already have a 40% multi bonus, it adds up to 90% for everything. The games need to have a minimum of 1.20 odds also.

888bet Bet Supercharge

2-for-1

There are two 2-for-1 promos on 888bet. The first is for Sunday matches which offer you a free bet on Monday when you place an accumulator bet with 4 or more selections with at least 1.5 odds each. The same terms and conditions apply for the 2-for-1 promo on Tuesday.

2 Up cut

Play a single bet and win the full amount even if your team loses. For this to happen, they have to be 2 goals up, and even if the team goes on to lose or draw the match, the bookmaker will pay you as though they won the match. This promo is only for bets placed on matches played on Wednesday.

Hat trick hero

The hat trick hero promo is for bets placed in the anytime goalscorer market. The bonus offers a 50% bonus when your selected player scores a hat trick. However, this bet must be in an accumulator bet of 5 selections or more of anytime goalscorer predictions.

📱 888bet Mobile Review

As we carried out this 888bet review, we discovered that the bookmaker doesn’t have a mobile app. This was disappointing because the presence of a mobile app for bookmakers has been taken for granted. However, we believe the bookmaker will soon develop a mobile app for Android and iOS users. 

But before then, you can use the mobile site of the bookmaker. And to make things easier, you can add the mobile site address to the home screen of your mobile device and access the website with one click. Here is a step-by-step guide to adding the mobile site to your home screen.

  1. Visit the 88bet website on your mobile device.
  2. Once the homepage is fully loaded, click the menu option on your browser.
  3. Scroll and click the option ‘Add to the home screen.’
  4. The bookmaker’s homepage will be added to your home screen, and the icon will be displayed.
  5. Click on the icon, and you will be directed to the homepage of 888bet.

📞 888bet Customer Service Review

You can judge a good bookmaker by how easy it is to use the website and its features. However, there may be cases where things don’t work as they are supposed to, and that is when you need to contact the customer care team of the bookmaker. 

The fastest way to contact the customer care team is by using the live chat option. There is always an agent you can talk with. To get started with this option, you must click the orange chat button at the bottom of the page. The next option is to send an email to the team.
