22Bet is a relatively new bookie which was opened in 2017. 22Bet is registered in Cyprus and owns an operating license emitted by the Curacao government.
The young Sportsbook has quickly risen through the ranks mainly due to having really competitive odds, as well as a varied betting offer. 22Bet also has nice bonuses & promotions and a comprehensive Esports market.
The website is pretty average both in terms of design and usability. It`s not the best looking and not the fastest out there (both desktop and mobile versions), and beginners could find it a bit difficult at first. It will get the job done, but in this day and age 22bet should do better, as their competitors have faster and cleaner platforms. It all depends on how much weight you put on these things.
Welcome bonus and promotions
22Bet has an excellent welcome bonus of 100%, up to 122 Eur, with decent rollover terms. Terms and conditions for both are in the image below (click to open in a new window at full resolution).
There is also a Friday reload bonus (40% up to 50 Eur) and a couple of other nice offers and odds boosts, which are regularly update. 22Bet is very solid when it comes to bonuses and promotions.
Odds, markets, limits
Odds at 22Bet are excellent, and on certain markets are some of the best in the industry. The payout on football can go as high as 97%, but most events have very good odds as well. For example, odds on tennis challengers are above the market average, and NBA handicap lines are 1.90-1.90, so not bad.
22 bet prides itself with having more than 1000 events available each day, and there is a ton of markets for you to bet on. There are around 40 sports available, which is incredible, and you can find even the lowest level of competitions. A few examples for you to create an impression would be ITF tournaments (Tennis), Slovakian Youth League (Football), Saudi Arabia second division (Football), Uganda Premier League (Football), Nicaragua second league (Basketball) and the list can go on and on.
Each event has plenty of betting types available, the big football matches can have over 1500 possible betting options, and other sports / leagues don`t disappoint either. There are all kinds of handicaps and adjustable handicaps on pretty much all markets. On average (including the smallest markets) there are over 30 betting types available per event.
It`s worth mentioning that 22bet also has comprehensive coverage of ESports.
All in all the betting coverage is truly amazing at 22bet, it could even be the best in the industry. If not, it competes with the best.
With all these available markets and with the good odds, one has to wonder how much a person can bet at 22Bet. While there are no official betting limits, 22Bet did tell us that limits depend on markets and on the player. As such, it`s safe to presume that a winning player will be limited at some point, and the lesser markets will probably have lower limits (though we were able to successfully test some of them with a few hundred bucks).
Banking and customer support
You can deposit and withdraw through pretty much any method imaginable. There are hundreds of options, too many to count. Many of them are specific for particular countries, and you can find them all on their website. All popular banking options are available (Card, Bank wire, Skrill, Netteller, PaysafeCard, etc.).
You can also deposit and withdraw with Crypto. There are 18 Crypto banking options, including all the popular ones like Bitcoin or Ethereum.
22bet promises that all payments are quick and that seems to be the case, although we could not test that for larger amounts.
In terms of customer support, their 24/7 e-mail address does a very good job, they are fast and professional. However, that`s the only contact method aside for Live Chat, and the Live Chat I found to be useless. Maybe I was unlucky, but I tried twice to ask a pertinent question and they told me “You can find all info on the website”. Thanks a lot! It almost sounded like a robot.
Live betting, mobile betting
The live betting platform falls in line with 22bet’s excellent coverage, in the sense that there will always be plenty of events and bets for you to choose from. As this review is written, on a Tuesday night, there are over 150 live events available – and that`s with European football having ended, and before the American sports have started.
Mobile betting is fine and dandy like with every bookie in this day and age, but 22bet’s platform does fall a bit short compared to the competition in terms of speed as usability – as mentioned at the start of this preview, when talking about 22bet’s website.
22Bet bookmaker review summary
22Bet excels in the most important departments, mainly in betting coverage and odds. Combine that with solid bonuses and great live betting, and you get a very interesting bookie, even though they will never be Pinnacle or 5Dimes because of lower betting limits. A few weaknesses exist, mainly the website, but those can be glossed over because 22bet`s strong points are more important than their downsides.
Overall 22bet is definitely a bookie worth checking out, and you can clearly see they are ambitious from the work they put in covering all those events, or seeing how they offer hundreds of languages and betting options. A winning high roller is likely to be limited at some point, but if you are a normal bettor looking for a wide range of events and for good odds, 22Bet looks like a good choice. Of course, you probably want to start prudently until they earn your confidence with fast payments made with no fuss – something which they promise to do.
