888 Sportsbook withdrawals

The good news is 888 has built a solid reputation for fair dealing and customer service and it’s usually easy to make a deposit and start playing. On the other hand, it can be frustrating to wait on cashout requests. But if you know what to expect you will be prepared before you cash out your winnings.
The main requirement for processing a cash out request will be verification. You have to provide proof of who you are and where you live because of banking laws before you can get money out of the sportsbook. These requirements can usually be met by sending in a copy of a photo ID, like a driver’s license, and a copy of a utility bill with the same address as the one on your account.
If you want to be able to get your withdrawals as quickly as possible, contact support and ask if you can start the verification process when you make a deposit.
- Bank transfers and wires: Always check to see if there are fees associated with bank transfer and wires. If you don’t have to pay fee, wires and transfers are the safest ways to process cash out requests.
- PayPal: You can receive your withdrawal to your PayPal account quickly.
- Neteller: Cash out requests to your Neteller account are usually fast.
- Check: Though it’s the slowest withdrawal method, requesting a check is easy. 888Sport will mail you a check and you can cash it at your personal bank.
