888 Sportsbook NJ Preview

888 Sport is the sportsbook arm of 888 Holdings, a company with a long history of offering online gambling. The company has grown from when they launched their first online casino, Casino On Net, in 1997. Later they changed the name of the casino to 888 and launched an online poker room called Pacific Poker.

Over the years they changed the poker room’s name to 888 Poker and added 888 Casino888 Bingo and 888 Sport. With the recent law change in the United States, 888 Sport will eventually be available in New Jersey. 888 already offers casino games and poker in the state.

As one of the oldest online gambling companies, and one of the companies listed on the London Stock Exchange, 888 offers a long history of quality customer service, fair games and odds, and new betting opportunities for people in NJ.
