M88 Sportsbook Review
M88, part of MansionBet, was originally launched in 2017 to much acclaim, and is committed to delivering the best entertainment experience to worldwide customers across Sports and Casino betting services. M88 is the Asian branch of the company, looking to jump on this ever growing market of avid sports enthusiasts and bettors. M88 has a strong reputation, so one would expect the same from the Asian version, which is regulated by both the Malta Gambling Authority and the UK Gambling Commission. Its also part of various ethical gambling organisations such as IBAS and GambleAware, meaning you can be sure your funds are safe and fair gaming practises are followed at all times. Proud sponsors of AFC Bournemouth and Crystal Palace, M88 is on the way to becoming one of the biggest bookmakers in Asia.
M88 is already a well establish bookmaker in the leading betting markets in Europe, and its therefore expected to provide a similar level in Asia. Customers wont be disappointed with the large range of sports, events, leagues and competitions that can be found across a wide variety of the most popular sports on the site. Football, Tennis and American Sports are all available for betting, with many countries and leagues, including the minor competitions all covered – the only notable exception is a lack of Horse Racing, which hopefully the site will add to its offering in the future. The site also heavily covers the rapidly growing E Sports Betting markets, with League of Legends, StarCraft, and Overwatch amongst the most popular sports to explore. The dashboard allows you to filter via countries and league in different formats to sort your viewing preference, and clicking on a particular event will open up a reasonable selection of betting markets to really give an overall decent level of depth to the Sportsbook. Singles, Doubles, System bets and even huge Accumulators with 10+ selections can be placed both cross-sport and cross-event. Both new and existing customers can tap into some tasty promotions too, with a 100% sign up bonus available, Accumulator Insurance and various sports refunds such as the Bore Draw promotion.
Live Betting is a big part of M88, with a large number of sporting events shown through the same dashboard that are currently taking place at the present moment around the world. The odds for these continuously update in real time, along with the changing scoreline as a game progresses. A great feature to have, customers can choose to cash out both pre-match and inplay bets before the event finishes, so if you lose heart and want to bank those winnings you can leave early and head to the pub.
Both a Casino and a Live Casino are part of M88’s online offering, with many of the most popular slots, jackpots, and table games by the leading service providers found on the site. If you prefer to play against a real world croupier, head to the live casino to play Blackjack, Roulette and Poker through the BetConstruct platform.
Usability of the Site
M88 has modern and distinctive branding and marketing, a clean and user-friendly interface and intuitive navigation to create an all-round seamless experience for customers to enjoy. The site is well-establish and has therefore obviously ironed out any issues with its website, ensuring you can focus on your betting experience. Customer support is always available via Live Chat, Email and Telephone, and a range of deposit and withdrawal options via Bank or Card mean you can get your funds in and out easily and get into placing those important bets.
In conclusion, M88 is one of the leading bookmakers in Asia at the current time. It has a high quality website, decent Sportsbook depth and a solid casino offering. In future it would be great to see it up its social media game, offering various competitions, personalised promotions and more to step up its engagement with customers.
