888.ru has become the second betting site allowed on the territory of Russia. It will provide sports betting services for Russian customers.
It is important to note that the betting site developed by the local lottery operator Stoloto is not related to the UK-based company 888 Holdings, despite the resemblance of their titles.
The online sports betting website 888.ru is operating on the platform released by Betconstruct. The operator is licensed to provide betting services by 23Bet.
Those who want to register with the betting website may take advantage of a free sign-up bonus. It reaches 2,000 Russian rubles (approximately $30).
888.ru is a member of the First SRO Bookmakers Association. That is why it uses TSUPIS to make online gambling transactions. Those who want to stake on the online sports betting website 888.ru should register. The registration process has three stages. It is necessary to open an account, register with TSUPIS, and prove your identity via Skype.
It is much easier compared to the first licensed betting operator Liga Stavok. To register with Liga Stavok, you need to bring your passport personally to one of the offices of the organization.
The third licensed operator is expected to appear on the online betting market. Bettors will be able soon to officially enjoy services of Sportbet.
Stoloto may be prohibited to provide its online lottery services, despite the availability of its online betting services, since a new draft bill that bans non-draw lotteries in Russia has recently appeared.
