1. The Company – Financial security

188bet is owned by Cube Limited, which is fully licensed and regulated by the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission.

All clients funds (deposits and winnings) are held in a segregated reserve account with The Royal Bank of Scotland International and AIB Isle of Man.

Since the Company was set several years ago there are no complaints regarding withdrawals and unfair treatment. All the withdrawals (even 10 000 EUR or more) are swiftly processed, the verification procedure is not sophisticated (ID + utility bill) and you have a general feeling that your funds are very safe there.

Surebet Monitor Team gives 188bet highest recommendation marks for financial security.


2. Customer Support

It is easiest and fastest to reach customer support representatives through the live-chat. In general they are extremely helpful and eager to help. They will contact the other departments for you (like financial, sportsbook) and put you on hold for a couple of minutes, if required. Anyway highest marks here are well deserved.


3. Withdrawal times and fees

There are very few operators, who will finalize your withdrawal request faster than 188bet. If you request 10 000 EUR (maximum limit) through Skrill (Moneybookers) you will get it in 3-5 hours, once your account is verified.


4. Account lifespan (until limited)

Your account will not be limited at 188bet.


5. Arbitrage opportunities

Owing to the very low marigin (1,5% for asian handicaps for the top european leagues) and high limits 188bet offers some very profitable arbitrages against Pinnacle Sports in soccer. Thanks to the great live-offer if you are arbing live you will certainly find a lot of surebets between 188bet and soft bookmakers.


6. Surebet Monitor Coverage

Surebet Monitor covers 188bet markets very well across 7 sports and most of the markets, however 90% of the action takes place on soccer, involving mainly asian handicap lines for full time and half time at 188bet.


7. General recommendation

For us 188bet is a silver medalist in arbitrage industry, just behind (and not far behind) the leader – Pinnacle Sports. We recommend this service to everybody and encourage our Clients to open an account there.
