188Bet is an Asian company, a traditional bookmaker, which is part of the large gambling holding “Cube Ltd.”. The office was founded relatively recently in 2006. Acceptance of bets on the Internet has been launched since 2007. In such a short period of time, the bookmaker 188Bet has acquired a large number of regular customers in the world. The authority of the bookmaker is growing thanks to its membership in various international bookmaker associations. And advertising campaigns and sponsorship contribute to recognition among ordinary users. For example, 188Bet is a partner of the reigning England football champion, Manchester City. On the Internet, 188Bet operates under and in accordance with a gambling license issued to it in the Isle of Man.
As usual with Asian bookmakers, the portal has two versions: one “international” in English for the European market, the second in Chinese for Asians. The design and decoration are a matter of taste, so it is quite possible to assume that the colors used on 188Bet may not be to everyone’s liking. On the other hand, in any case, these colors are neutral, and therefore do not strain your eyes, allowing you to browse the site without discomfort for a long time and, without being distracted by the details, concentrate on the main thing, i.e. on line analysis. In terms of navigation and functionality, the site is also of the highest standards.

188Bet makes it possible to immerse yourself in the world of gambling entertainment not only through sports betting. The site has sections for casinos, keno, poker, bingo. All transfers between accounts are instant and commission-free. For example, if you wanted to play roulette, waiting for the start of a football match you are interested in, and you need to transfer part of the funds from an account in an office to an account in a casino, then, of course, no one will take interest from you for this service. There is also a full-fledged sports statistics section on 188Bet. With him you can always competently analyze the upcoming event. All statistical information is provided to the office by the British firm Betradar, which in turn has great authority in this area.
