  • Players who predict the correct results of all eight matches, will win an equal share of £8,000 in cash. That means if there is only 1 winner, he/she will bag the lot.
  • However, even if you don’t get all eight correct, you still pick up a £1.00 free bet for every correct prediction.

Play without making a deposit!

All players can play every week for the £8,000 top prize without making a deposit.

However, in regards to the free bets, you are allowed four (4) submissions before being required to place qualifying bets in order to receive more free bets. As a note, we noticed when reviewing this promotion on a mobile device that it states only two submissions are allowed. Therefore, we urge you to check with 888sport customer service to find out where you stand.

Key Terms and Conditions

Of course, there are a few terms and conditions attached to the 888sport Up for 8 promotion. We’ve listed them for you below:

  1. Registered 888sport customers only. 18+. Must reside in the UK.
  2. Up for 8 predictions cannot be changed after submission.
  3. The free bet token cannot be split. For example, if you get five predictions correct, you get a £5 free bet. This must be used in full. You cannot place two x 2.50 wagers.
  4. After using your free bet allocation (2 or 4 submissions), you must wager £25 in a week to receive more free bets for your correct predictions. This does not apply to the £8k top prize. You can play for that totally for free.
