Promotions
888 also offers a variety of promotions and offers that coincide with major sporting events. This can include offers for bets made on the Super Bowl or NCAA season and change frequently, so be sure to check the 888 promotions page to get the latest deals.

Design and UX

The 888Sports NJ website features a clean design with a clutter-free and easy-to-navigate interface. Quick links to the most popular sports and betting markets mean punters can make bets in a matter of clicks. The home page features several ‘trending’ bets, which aids newcomers to sports betting understand what the general consensus is- a better betting guide than a complete stab in the dark.

However, one flaw in the site design is the poor placement of advertisements, which can be quite intrusive.

App Review

The 888Sports NJ mobile sports betting app almost mirrors the desktop website, which means you’ll get the same experience no matter the device you choose. The 888Sport app features the same sports, markets and promotional offers as the website, with a flyout list displaying all of your sports betting options.

Just like the desktop website, the mobile app is clutter-free and easy to navigate. One area in which the 888Sport app excels is in its placement of ads. Unlike the website, the app features small banner ads that don’t distract from the betting markets.

You can download the 888Sports app via the 888 website or the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Mobile sports bettors can also bet using the 888Sports NJ mobile web app, which is almost identical to the native app.

Unfortunately, the 888Sport mobile app only allows users to view a limited number of betting options from the homepage at one time, though the expandable menu means this issue isn’t detrimental to the overall betting experience.

Bettors can use a variety of methods to deposit funds and withdraw winnings on the 888Sport betting platform both online and in-person, using the cash cage at Caesars in Atlantic City.
