Brand and Star Quality

188 Bet is owned by Cube Ltd and was founded in 2006.

The 188Bet Sportsbook has achieved a growing fan base in the UK thanks to a strong advertising spend alongside sponsorship deals with top Premier League football (formerly Wigan Athletic and Bolton Wanderers) and Rugby Union (Wigan Warriors) clubs.

Its key strength is in providing competitive odds through a really easy user interface, coupled with generous promotions. Whilst 188 Bet Sportsbook is still a long way off challenging the big guns of Will Hill and Bet365, it has done a lot to establish itself well in the second tier of UK sportsbooks.

Like almost all online sportsbooks in the modern era, 188Bet has an expanding portfolio of gaming options, and offers a casino, live dealer casino, instant win games and poker rooms.

All the products are operated under license from the Isle of Man and the UK, which provides reassurance to punters in the UK that this site is run fairly and securely and meets requirements set out in UK law regarding the operation of an online gambling business.

188Bet Sportsbook Welcome Offer

The current offer to attract new players into 188 Sportsbook is a £20 free bet that is credited when a first bet of £10 or more is placed on any sports or racing market with odds of 2:1 or greater.

The free bet can be used to bet on any sports or racing market. Once the free bet has been credited, it must be used within 14 days. It is subject to a 1x wagering requirement – and it is non-withdrawable – meaning if a player does win, then they cannot withdraw the bet with the winnings. The free bet would simply be deducted from the account balance at this point. This bet can only be used on markets of 2:1 or greater.

Finally, Skrill and Neteller depositors do not qualify for the free bet offer.
