Which Countries Are Legal or Illegal At 888Sport?

Legal & Illegal CountriesOnline bookmakers and betting providers tend to place the onus on punters to determine whether online gambling is legal in their country.

888Sport do exactly this as part of their terms and conditions;

the company makes no representations whatsoever as to the legality of the services in your jurisdiction…the services are intended only for users who are not prohibited by the laws of any applicable jurisdiction that applies to you.

Punters, then, should always take the time to check for themselves the legality of using any gambling site however 888Sport do include a list of illegal countries ineligible for their services:

  • Afghanistan
  • Australia
  • Belgium
  • Bulgaria
  • Cuba
  • Denmark
  • France
  • Germany
  • Hong Kong
  • Hungary
  • Indonesia
  • Iran
  • Iraq
  • Israel
  • Italy
  • Kuwait
  • Macao
  • Philippines
  • Puerto Rico
  • Romania
  • Singapore
  • South Korea
  • South Sudan
  • Spain
  • Sudan
  • Thailand
  • Turkey
  • USA

This list is subject to continual change and adaptation, and it is always a good idea for punters to research the legal situation of gambling in their country for themselves.

Currencies Accepted

CurrencyAs a globally known bookmaker and a company which offers its services to customers from a wide range of different countries, 888Sport do also provide for a number of different currencies to be used through their site. Those which are currently available are as follows:

  • Danish Kroner (DKK)
  • Euro (EUR)
  • Swedish Kronor (SEK)
  • United Kingdom Pound (GDP)
  • United States Dollar (USD)

The company, therefore, do not have an extensive range of available currencies and compare poorly with some of the other giants of the industry.

888Sport Bonus Restrictions

Another area to consider when assessing an online bookmaker’s suitability for customers based in different countries is that of the national restrictions placed upon their bonuses and promotions. Many providers, after all, stipulate that residents of certain nations are ineligible for their offers.

888Sport also make such a statement as part of their bonus terms and conditions;

Customers located in certain jurisdictions, territories and states may be deemed ineligible.

Unfortunately, however, a list of which countries this refers to is not provided and instead 888Sport invite customers to contact customer services in order to check on the status of their own nation with regards to the 888Sport free bet or bonus code.
