BK8 was founded in 2015 with the lofty aim of becoming the largest one-stop hub for online gaming enthusiasts in Asia, and within three years it was clear they meant business as in 2018, The BK8 football offering was beefed up with former Chelsea and England star John Terry signed up as their first brand ambassador.
A year later he was followed by another of the English Premier League’s greatest-ever players as Arsenal and Manchester United ace Robin van Persie became their newest brand ambassador, and in 2021 the BK8 football credentials were improved even more when they became the “Official Asian Betting Partner” for not just one but five Spanish teams – Valencia, Villarreal, Athletic Bilbao, Elche and Mallorca.
There are also a number of technical partnerships behind the scenes with renowned companies such as iTech Labs, Gaming Laboratories International and BMM Testlabs, which may be of more interest to fans of casino games, but are a great sign that BK8 is going about their business the right way.
An important point to make before we head into the main section of this BK8 review is that the BK8 sportsbook is split across three separate sites – BK8-Sports, Saba-Sports and c-Sports, with separate sections for horse racing and eSports too. This allows for a great deal of choice as all the sites look and feel different, but some offers will only apply to a certain site.
And while there is an extensive gaming offering on BK8 Sport, for the purposes of this review we will be concentrating solely on the sportsbook.
