Yes, very impressed with the instant call back, and the lady I spoke to was smart and obviously not reading from a script either. It's been a while since I've contacted 888 support, so they've obviously upped their game.

Decided if I do get any more sports bets as challenges, that I'll "dutch" on live tennis. That way I'll lose a few cents but complete the challenge :)

Opened my treasure chest and won 1 dollar, shame I could not have bet on that result.  Todays challenge is to make 75 wagers, minimum of 1 dollar per time in the casino

Managed to open up my chests and won $2. Now having had to gamble on sports and spin on the roulete and then play a certain amount of hands it looks like ive won 1% of what ive had to stake LOL.
Im close to the next chest so lets hope i get more than a $1 one lol.

Good luck Slim!

Rhonda - my tactic when I had to place 70 casino bets was to bet on both red and black in roulette for $1 each. Meant I lost $4 as it came up on 0 a couple of times, but I'm still in credit with the sports bets so could afford it.

Luckily, I'm mostly getting poker challenges so not too bad. Will be interesting to see if the later challenges are as ridiculous as that one John got - I won't be playing "win $100 on sports" either.

My challenge yesterday was win 4 blast games.  Gave it a miss because its easy to lose alot more than you ever can win on these games especially since the $1 has a 2 min time limit(what a **** idea).  Todays challenge is place bets of $20 in casino.  Again no thanks 888 another 2 days with no progress.  The explanation given for the nature of the challenges was that they had to cater for different players of different games and bankrolls.  If so wouldnt it have been easier to place 3 different challenges each day for players.  1 poker related, 1 casino related and 1 sports related and let the player choose which they want to play.  Just an idea and would have spared most of the confusion around this whole thing.  The idea was sound but the execution was woeful.

Hi Jen nice to see you on my sit and go tables, both trying to win to fulfill the challenge.  I did you tactic of betting both  odd and even and then black and red, but got so bored ended up putting the odd 5 dollars on other numbers at the same time! and two chests have paid a miserly 1 dollar!  LOL  Knowing my luck I will get to the final one and win a blast ticket!!!

How can live football not be a live bet ?? I had 7 bets $1 each above 1.5 only needed 5 but fancied two extra lost on the day and failed to move from 0/5 on the challenge so screen shot and fired it off to support. 

Boycotting the tables till it's sorted out

Its betting in-play m8.  888 calls it live betting which is as I mentioned in earlier post very open to this kind of mis-understanding so I appeal to the mods again to forward this suggestion to support.  Please change the wording from live to in-play.  Thats 3 ppl involved in this thread I think now who have got stung by this and I bet there are many more who dont post here getting caught.


My latest challenge is bet $500 in casino again.  Thats 2 or 3 times now.  Pure comedy.  Good thing is I only have less than 2hrs to wait and hope its a poker related one.

Cheers John 

I woke up to the support reply saying the same thing, no more dabbling on 4k fortune then for me, I lost money doing something that I didn't want to do in the first place. even the play now button didn't take you to the in play section just 888 sports main site. 

it's me not you thus I'm withdrawing some funds today in protest. shares will fall and maybe crash the exchange :-) (actually nobody will care like most things in life) 

today is a good old get in the money for 1 9man tourny (I can feel that $1 entering my account soon)
