Fun88 Review Overall Rating (3/5)
From the front page there is a Live Chat button where you can ask any questions and deal with any of your queries. In addition there is a contact us option at the footer of the website. This takes you to a page that has a host of different ways to contact Fun88 from a Live chat, support email, full address, email, an a contact form. That’s a good choice and you also have a telephone number (see company info above).
Fun88 Mobile App
Disappointingly there does not seem to be a mobile app to download (at the time of writing this review). As a fairly new UK operator this puts it at a distinct disadvantage compared to other bookmakers.
However, you can still bet on your mobile device with the same functions and choices as the website. The sports available is fairly good although there seems to be less sports to bet on the mobile site. However, by clicking on “All Sports” you’ll get more sports including plenty of live in-play matches.
There is nothing fundamentally wrong with the app as you can place a bet like any other operator but is lacks the look and feel of other bookies that provide a more polished experience. Fun88 let’s itself down in that respect and could do much better on the full website and mobile versions.
Having said that the once you enter an event e.g. football match you seem to get a lot more depth of bet choices with over 80+ for main football matches that includes what will happen in the next few minutes like will there be a goal ? a corner ? a penalty ? and many more. You certainly won’t be short on variety of betting choices and it seems to excel in this category. Why not bet on Surfing ?

This is an interesting offer and you have to place at least £20 on a pre-Match Single bet with odds of Evens or greater, The offer applies whether your qualifying bet Won or Lost. That’s a result and an extra bonus with your standard bet if it comes in and statistically a lot of goals are scored late in matches so there is a good chance you get the £10 bonus.
MONEY BACK IF ONE TEAM LETS YOU DOWN OFFER
We like this offer inevitably one team will at some point let you down. Now you have this offer that refunds you (max £50) in this circumstances so you can breathe a little easier. To qualify it has to be a straight accumulator bets of 5 or more football selections. To claim your offer you’ll just need to email your losing bet ID.
We quiet like the results checkers tool where you can quickly check results up to a week old across different sports an leagues from around the world. It’s a comprehensive list of sports which is ideal if you have bet on some minority sports like Handball and Floorball (type of floor hockey with five players and a goalkeeper in each team) – really.
What Makes Fun88 different ?
We quite like the depth of betting options within each match event that includes some quite different ones compared to other betting operators. This differentiates it and gives customers something different to bet on and can be fun at the same time.
OVERALL Fun88 Review
Fun88 is a decent site and appeals to customers who want a straightforward betting experience with the ability to quickly bet on sports matches without too much fuss. There are a couple of points that bring the rating lower like the warning about the possibility that the live event information may experience some issues. This does not give confidence to customers reading it. Secondly the overall site experience is not a polished compared to other bookmakers old and new ones and looks too basic. Finally it does not have an app to download.
Having said all that feel free to take a look for yourself and make up your own mind.
