188BET Review


The official website of 188bet offers two language versions: English and Chinese. In addition to sports betting, the platform offers such sections as:

  • Casino
  • Live casino
  • Poker
  • Financial rates

On the main page of the site in the left block there are sports with the ability to search for events, the Betradar information center and access to the 188bet personal account, which displays information about current bets, live events and the match calendar. The live betting section occupies an important place. In the right sidebar you can find help sections and betting coupon settings. The footer of the site contains contact information and information about the company.


The mobile version of the 188bet website launches automatically when you visit the site from a mobile device. For Asian countries, official mobile applications of BC “188bet” are also available for iOS and Android devices. Users can download the application by scanning a special QR code. Mobile solutions provide full functionality and are not inferior to the main site.

The following options are available to bettors:

  • Search for matches to place bets on.
  • Using Betradar services to obtain up-to-date statistics and event data.
  • View infographics and graphical representations of information about matches and bets.
  • 24/7 user support.
  • The ability to carry out financial transactions, such as replenishing your account and withdrawing winnings.


The registration process is standard, the form is filled out in English. After filling out, mandatory identification of the individual and the payment system is required. Only after this the bookmaker accepts the deposit and allows you to place bets. Registration with the 188bet bookmaker from Ukraine can be a problem in the absence of an accessible site mirror. Even using VPN extensions will not help, because when you go to a site with an IP address of another country, a registration form appears with the country that cannot be changed. This may create problems when verifying your account.


Among the special features available on the 188BET platform, the match center stands out. This option allows site users to follow the progress of the game even if there is no video broadcast. The match center displays events in real time with minimal delay – usually no more than 3-4 seconds, which is acceptable for most sports. This feature allows bettors to stay informed and make more informed decisions when placing bets.


At the 188BET bookmaker there are restrictions on bet denominations. The minimum amount that can be bet is $1. However, maximum bet amounts are determined individually. In addition, the company has set a limit on the maximum winnings – players will not be able to withdraw an amount exceeding $500,000 within one day from their account. These measures may be introduced to ensure the company’s financial stability and compliance with gambling industry regulations.


188bet has a really limited choice in the list of available financial instruments. The bettor is provided with such international electronic payment systems as Entropay Virtual Card, International Bank Transfer, Skrill, Neteller, as well as MasterCard and Visa bank cards. The minimum amount for replenishing an account is the equivalent of 10 USD, and the maximum withdrawal amount is limited by the internal limits of payment systems, but does not exceed 30,000 USD per application. Transaction processing time takes from 12 hours to 3 days.


Bookmaker 188bet offers a variety of markets and features, which is not typical for Asian bookmakers. In their line you can find money lines, double chances, Asian handicaps, Asian totals, as well as markets for the first game periods and halves in basketball, statistics of corner kicks, time intervals of 15 minutes, exact scores, goal intervals, half/match, style wins, first scorer and player points. At the same time, football attracts special attention. 188bet does not have a live video section, but there is a Betradar stats infographic available which provides useful information about the match.


The situation with the painting in the live betting section on the 188BET website is not improving significantly. The number of available events remains approximately the same as in the pre-match line.
