Full review of 188bet sportsbook

188bet is relatively new, but it has also become one of the most popular online bookmakers for players located in Asia. 188bet is best known for a wide variety of live bets each and every month, in fact, they promise a minimum of 2200. It's a highly international betting site with coverage of events from all around the world. They are known for providing a very user-friendly site that is well laid out and easy to understand.

When you login to 188bet, there is an immediate listing of the live events currently taking bets. However, additional lines are also listed under the sports section. 188bet specializes in football, with a wide variety of events featured from over 400 football leagues worldwide. In addition to football, this bookmaker features basketball, baseball, tennis, snooker, handball, volleyball, cricket, cycling, darts, golf, hockey and even financial bets.
