888 offers several bonuses to players, all designed to entice new players to the platform and maintain the existing ones. Players can use most of the bonuses to place wagers on eSports events. When all the wagering requirements are fulfilled, winnings from the bonuses can be transferred from the bonus account to the cash account and withdrawn.
The main bonus type that all players qualify for when they join the betting provider is the Welcome Bonus. The bonus amount is based on the amount of the first deposit. 888 offers 100% of the first deposit made, up to a maximum amount of $200.
There is also another bonus for new customers, which is earned by placing the first bet. Players get $30 in free bets for the first $10 bet. They also get an additional $10 to be used in casino games only. 888 also offers special bonus awards, which can include boosted trebles and special additional bets.
The signup process is relatively easy and takes only about a minute to complete. The player has to click on the 'join now' button located on the top right corner of the 888's website to begin the process.
Doing so will open a form in which the player has to input his details. The required information includes name, email address, location, date of birth, and gender. The player also has to accept the terms and conditions to proceed with the signup process.
The next step in the process is creating the player's account. For that, the player has to choose a username and secure password. He also has to select a suitable security question and provide an answer to it. He also has to provide a mobile number and choose the preferable currency he will use in his account.
After that, all that will be left is verifying that the contact details provided are valid by clicking on a link sent to the added email address. The player can then deposit money into his account and then proceed to enjoy the 888 experience.
All bonuses offered on 888 have several requirements that players have to meet. Failure to meet any of the conditions usually means the player has forfeited the bonus award. Below are some of the main bonus wagering requirements.
Wager must be placed using the bonus: When a player places a bet using money from the primary account or restricted funds, the wagers will not fulfill the bonus wagering requirements.
A player has to wager the bonus amount 30 times: A player can only withdraw a bonus amount and winnings arising from the bonus after wagering an amount equal to or more than 30 times the amount of initial bonus received.
Player must wager the bonus before it expires: After receiving the bonus, the player has to wager it and fulfill all the wagering requirements within 90 days from when the bonus is awarded. Failure to do so results in the player forfeiting the bonus and all the winnings associated with the bonus.
A player should convert winnings from bonus to available funds before placing a withdrawal request: If a player places a withdrawal request, he forfeits all his restricted funds and all the related winnings that have not yet been transferred to the primary account and reflected on the available funds.
Different games contribute differently towards the wagering requirements: All the games on 888 can contribute towards fulfilling wagering requirements. However, some games contribute a lot more than others. For example, eSports contribute a higher percentage than craps. Players should thus choose the games they wager on wisely to fulfill the requirements.
Geographical location can influence the wagering requirements: Bonuses offered by 888 are open to all registered members. However, members from certain states, territories, or jurisdictions may not qualify for the bonuses or may have to fulfill different wagering requirements. Eligibility to all the bonuses is also limited to a single player for every household.
