888 Sport is now open for business in New Jersey. The 888 name has been a fixture on the international stage since the late 90s and today joins the United States for the first time as a licensed and legal online sportsbook.
This makes 888sport the seventh online betting site to launch in New Jersey since the Supreme Court ruled against the federal sports betting prohibition. 888sport joins a competitive market which now features the likes of DraftKings Sportsbook, FanDuel, SugarHouse and others all vying for business in the newly-regulated NJ sports betting market.
888sport is powered by Kambi technology, which was also tapped by DraftKings to power its own US-facing sports betting operations. Kambi is also used by 888sport in other regulated markets such and employs roughly 600 people around the world.
888 Holdings CEO Itai Frieberger said this in a press release announcing the news:
“The launch of 888sport.com in New Jersey is a major milestone for the Company in our ongoing expansion across the regulated U.S. online gaming market and provides 888 with a unique and truly multi-product proposition in what is currently the largest regulated U.S. state.
“888 has been committed to developing its position in the U.S. since launching in Nevada, the first regulated U.S. state, nearly six years ago and today we are the only operator with a presence in all three regulated U.S. states. We now have our sport, casino and poker products all operational in the U.S. and are continually developing our proposition, brands and technology to ensure that the Group remains exceptionally well positioned to capture the potentially significant future growth opportunities as new regulation allows.”
In addition to sports betting, 888 also operates an online casino and poker site in New Jersey. 888 is also active in Delaware as the operator of Delaware’s online poker network and in Nevada as the state’s largest online poker provider.

First Look at 888sport New Jersey
While some other mobile NJ betting sites launched what appear to be “work in progress” sites, 888sport is nearly complete as it is today. The one thing that’s missing are dedicated iOS and Android apps (which 888 says are coming soon). However, mobile customers can still point their browsers to us.888sport.com to view the lines and place bets while on the go.
A full range of sports and thousands of bets were made available from day one. The list of sports includes all the major North American leagues plus other sports such as MMA, motor racing, Olympic Games, rugby, soccer, cricket and darts.
For a sense of scale, consider this: the soccer betting tab at 888sport lists exactly 37,289 individual betting markets for today alone. That covers an international range of soccer matches along with dozens of markets made available for each individual match.
NFL betting at 888sports is similarly diverse in terms of betting options. 888 customers can bet on the usual point spreads and money lines along with point totals, alternate lines and dozens of props. On a single NFL game, fans can bet on whether or not the game will go into overtime, the winning margin, which quarter will have the most points scored, first team to score, whether or not there will be a safety, which player will score the first touchdown and much more.
Live betting is also open for business with all of tonight’s NFL games scheduled to host in-play betting markets. A quick look at the in-play betting interface shows that there can be as many as 50 individual markets during a game that include everything from the winning team to the method of the next score.
An early list of deposit methods has been published to us.888sport.com as well. Starting today, customers can fund their betting accounts with MasterCard, Visa, online banking, Neteller, bank transfer and in-person cash deposits at Caesars Atlantic City.
888sport NJ has also launched with two new customer bonuses. The first is a $10 no-deposit bonus that will give you $10 in betting credits that you can use to place wagers and win real money that may be withdrawn. If you decide to deposit, 888sport offers a 100% bonus that will match your first deposit dollar for dollar to give you up to $500 in bonus funds.
