188Bet has an excellent reputation as one of the best Asian companies in the industry. Focusing on football, 188Bet offer some of the best odds in the market today and their early odds are nearly always attractive. They are market leaders in in-play betting often exceeding 3,500 markets per month to meet the requirements of every type of bettor.

In times where some Asian bookmakers have simply vanished over night European bettors have been extremely wary of registering with any Asian sites. 188Bet, however, has had very few negative reports and overall seems to be a very safe place to bet.
188Bet holds licenses in the Isle of Man, Kahnawake and the Phillipines to allow for their operation in a wider international market.
