Let’s look at the app in a bit more detail. First of, we should start by saying this app is very well designed and easy to use. It packs in a huge amount of features and opportunities but does it in a way that the app doesn’t feel too cluttered. You get the same choices, same design and same options on the mobile site, Android app & iOS variant so no matter what you use, you get to use all the features available. The app has been designed to be as fast as possible, you don’t want to hang around and miss getting that bet on. Launch the New Jersey app from 888 and you will instantly notice the design and color scheme. We think it works really well with the bright orange and black but it may not be to everyone taste. It is easy to see the menus, lines and all wagering options.
On the home screen of the app, you can view all the days big events across the globe. This can be Tennis, NFL, Soccer or whatever big sporting event is on, you will know instantly. You can scroll and see all the games, or use the menu located on the left of the screen. There is a full A-Z where you can view all the available sports as well as the Live In Play games happening right now. Click on any of the sports and you will be amazed at the market choice. No matter what sport, you will be able to see lots of leagues and games from all around the globe. There is also a handy search facility at the top of the page where you can search by sport, league or teams; handy if you are in a rush to get your bet on.
There is a second menu on the app which contains live betting, a list of the available promotions with 888 sport NJ, a handy getting started guide, a blog and links to the casino & poker offering from 888 NJ. The getting started tab is a great place for new punters to start and there are lots of handy guides and tips to get started on your sports betting journey. See how to deposit, play safe, how live betting works and much more.
Available on the Android and iPhone app (but not the mobile site) are push notifications. This allows notifications of upcoming events, matches and prices such as 4th of July specials and promos. One thing is sure when using 888 sport, they offer a huge amount of In Play betting options compared to any other NJ Sportsbooks. Click on the live tab and you can see all the in play opportunities. If you can’t be at the game or watch it in the bar or on TV, there are live visuals available to track the action as it happens.

Here is where you can add your stake and then place your bet. The app lets you place Straight Bet/Moneyline, Point Spreads, Totals (Over/Under), Parlays, Teasers, Propositions and also Futures.
What could be improved on the app?
Whilst we are fans of the design of the app, it is beginning to look a tad bit dated. It can run slightly slow sometimes too. When an app packs in so many different sports, features and events, it would be almost impossible for it to be lightening quick. Lines do generally update pretty quickly as long as you are using a good connection like 4G or WiFi.
If you are a fan of betting on E-Sports then you should look elsewhere for your wagering fix for the minute. 888 Sport for New Jersey do not currently offer any betting opportunities for E-Sports unfortunately. Another thing we would like to see on the app (and website) is a loyalty program. Whilst there is no rewards plan as such, they do however, offer daily and weekly challenges. Daily challenges are completed when a player bets $50 or more on a sport with minimum odds of -200. Upon completing a challenge, the bettor then gets a $5 bonus the next day.
There are links in the main menu to the 888 casino & 888 poker for NJ players but these take you through to the mobile site, there is no casino or poker room built in to the app. We would love to see the casino and poker, or even just the casino integrated with the sports app. You can however download separate apps for these so it is not a major issue, and use the same 1 logins across all the platforms. All of 888 suite of apps are quite large in size so we can understand why there is a need for 3 separate apps, as 1 containing all 3 would just be too big.
888 sport are fully legal, licensed and regulated by the DGE (Division of Gaming Enforcement) to operate in New Jersey. You want to feel safe when making deposits and withdrawals and you are in good hands with 888. As a regulated bookmaker, you can be sure your money and details are safe. 888 do however offer full support should you have any instances that you need to contact them. They offer support over the phone, via email and also a live chat facility on the app and website.
