    they seem to be offering good free bets for new members Has anyone used them and are they reliable? Skrill is my payment preference, do they accept this method for new customers.

    I have/had PP, Lads, Boyles * BET365 accounts. any other new ones out there that are worth joining for freebies?

    Advantages and disadvantages compared to Paddy Power for example.

    The advantage to them compared to Paddy Power is that they allow maximum limits. They also give €88 in free bets depending on the amount of bets you place @2.00 odds and over They seem to be in €10 installments

    However there are disadvantages sometimes if you put on a larger bet they ask you to manually approve it. It could anything between one min or 15mins.So you might want to be careful if you are placing a bet just before the sport starts!

    There are no guaranteed prices for the uk and irish horse races.

    There is also a major disavantage is that 888sport take ages to give you your money 8 working days when using a credit or debit card. But shrill is about 1-3 days but i do not use that.

    They did give me a refund where a horse lost by half a length in a national hunt jumps race.

    But the terms and condtions are "Your free bet will be rounded down to the nearest £5. For example, if your bet of £8.50 qualifies for a free bet, we'll give you a free bet token worth £5. This occurs in units of £5 up to and including £25."

    Basically a max of 25€ refund
