Fun88 have been established in Asia for a few years now but like a number of similar organisations, they are looking to break into Great Britain and Europe as a whole. Their profile has been raised in part due to a sponsorship deal with English Premier League side Newcastle United and they hope to continue that momentum and attract a wider customer base.
Here’s what they have to offer:
Here is the full list of sporting markets currently provided by Fun88:
Football, Horse Racing, Golf, Tennis, Cricket, Darts, American Football, Aussie Rules Football, Bandy, Baseball, Basketball, Beach Volleyball, Bowls, Boxing, Cycling, Handball, Ice Hockey, MMA, Motor Racing, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Snooker, Pool, Speedway, Surfing, Table Tennis, Volleyball, Winter Sports and Chess.
It’s a strong list that combines all of the popular sports and it will be of interest to many punters to see horse racing fully backed by a new brand. Some of the more obscure niches are here too and it all comes together to provide one of the best ranges of markets around.
Options for eSports are here too together with a choice of bets from the worlds of politics and entertainment.
All new bookmakers have the issue when starting out of not being placed on the odds comparison sites so we cannot tell at a glance whether they are giving us any value. We have, however, taken a small sample of bets across a number of different sports and Fun88 one of the best bookies, particularly in those core areas such as football, tennis and golf.
Horse racing markets also provide strong prices and Fun88 have a Best Odds Guarantee scheme applying to all meetings in the UK and Ireland. Overall it is a very competitive package and you should find value no matter what sports you like to bet on.
Fun88 have been working on their promotions in recent times and 2017 has seen something of a revamp. The welcome offer has been altered and new promos have been brought in so there is more to look forward to as far as new players are concerned.
That welcome deal promises a free bet worth up to £28.00 which is decent in the current market and it requires a series of qualifying stakes in order to claim it.
Register for an account and stake that series of six qualifying bets. All of these must be between £10.00 and £28.00 and there are qualifying odds. For singles these are at Even Money or higher and for multiples, each leg has to be at a minimum of 1.40.
On completion of the sixth bet, contact customer service and they will issue a free bet equivalent to your lowest stake during that period.
Regular promotions were also introduced at the start of the 2017/18 football season and these include an Acca insurance offer plus a £10.00 free bet in selected football matches where a goal is scored after the 88th minute. Please check all terms and conditions in full but this is a good set of options and another positive aspect of the Fun88 set up.
Banking and Customer Service
If there is one area that could perhaps be improved upon it’s the list of funding options which is a little restricted. Fun88 allow you to use Skrill and Neteller plus all the major debit and credit cards so while most of us can get on board from this list, it would be useful to see some of the more obscure eWallets included.
Moving on to customer service and this is much better with the live chat operator button prominently shown to anyone as soon as they hit the home page. That’s how most of us like to contact our bookies these days but if you prefer, you can also access some Frequently Asked Questions and there is a dedicated customer support email address too.
There are lots of good reasons why you should consider adding Fun88 to what might already be a very crowded list of sportsbook accounts. The welcome offer is a decent one at £28.00 although there are six qualifying bets needed to trigger it.
The recent introduction of ongoing promotions has helped to increase that value while there are strong odds across what is a big set of sporting markets. The only possible area for attention is that relatively small list of funding options but overall this is an excellent place to play.
