There are few bookmakers who managed to attract large number of players in a short period of time while never stopping to increase quality of its services. One of them is 22Bet. It is relatively young company that attracted a fair deal of attention and it couldn’t pass unnoticed to us.
That is why we had decided to take a closer look and test all what 22Bet offers. You can read later in the text what we have found. While doing our review we tested several key segments of this modern bookmaker.
We can say in the introduction that we were pleasantly surprised with what we saw, but it should be stressed there are still issues on which 22Bet should work in the future.
Bonus 100% up to 122 EUR + 22 BetPoints
last change: 25.01.2019.
22Bet – Welcome Bonus
As it is common practice followed by most modern online bookmakers 22Bet rewards its new customers with the welcome bonus of 100% up to 122 EUR. Besides this one, new players get 22 BetPoints. It is still unclear what BetPoints are for but we heard they are planned to be used in the souvenir shop or for buying bonuses. 22Bet is a young company and it often introduce various novelties and improvements, which is why we expect that purpose of BetPoints will be more precisely defined in the future.
As it is our practice we are going to outline all conditions needed to earn bonuses, or in other words what needs to be done in order to turn them into real money. Naturally, the first condition is that you are a new customer of 22Bet, who have registered and made the first deposit. As we have said before the welcome bonus 22Bet will double your first deposit up to 122 EUR. The bonus is automatically transferred on player’s account without need to use bonus code, unless player defers his right on bonus.
Minimal deposit is €/$1 but it should be taken into consideration that size of bonus directly correlates with amount of first deposit. Accordingly, if you want bigger bonus it is necessary to make the first deposit be big as well. In order to withdraw the bonus and deposit it is necessary to turn them over at least five times in combo bets. Each bet must have minimally three selections. If the combo bet has more than three selections at least three events must have odds of 1.40 or higher. Deadline to turn over the bonus is seven days.
It is important to add that players who access 22Bet from Croatia, Hungary and Serbia are not entitled on the welcome bonus.
Reload Friday Bonus for Sports Bet – the title says it all what is this about. What should be added is that all players are eligible for it regardless of country from which they access the site. 22Bet offers bonus of 40% up to €/$50 for all bets laid on Friday. Bonus must be played in next 24 hours. In order to withdraw money, it is necessary to play three combo bets with minimally three selections. Just as it is the case with the welcome bonus, minimal odds for each of three selections is 1.40.
22Bet – Bet Offer
Quality of offer is besides odds one of most important segments for punters. Right at the beginning of this paragraph we can state that offer from 22Bet fulfil all what players dream about. Besides sports that are traditionally in bookmakers’ focus, and under this we have in mind football, tennis and basketball, 22Bet has rich offer of all other sports that you can imagine. It offers less attractive sports that most bookies will not even take into consideration, but 22Bet finds important to have them.
Accordingly, this segment of the offer is at very high level and can be compared with the best in the industry.
There is large choice of betting options, both for major and less known leagues. This is something we haven’t seen in any other bookmaker and it is incredibly large number of bets for a single event. We had seen that certain bookies offer on average circa 100 bets per single event but at 22Bet you can find even up to 1500 bets for more attractive events.
We are not going to comment is this really necessary but we should acknowledge effort to offer so many bets for one sport event. It is not practical to list all those options but range of options for total number of goals, handicaps or exact result will simply delight any fan of sports betting.
22Bet – Odds
22Bet is one of younger bookmakers on the market and it used to offer far more modest odds till recently, which could be compared with those from other bookmakers. However, the management obviously realised that joining the best can be achieved only with high quality offer and good odds, and right now 22Bet has much better odds than before. Screenshot placed below this paragraph tells about quality of odds and shows that the profit margin is just 2.3%. It was given for La Liga match, and we should add that profit margin for the same event for over/under 2.5 goals was just 2%, while one for handicap was a bit bigger, 6.2%.
Live Betting and Live Streams
Live betting is another important feature when reviewing online bookmakers. This segment of the offer was significantly improved lately although live-streams are still not there but each event is accompanied with useful and attractively displayed statistic data.
It is interesting and practical detail that the complete offer of betting options for a selected even can be divided into maximally three columns. In this way the offer is far more visible but how data are presented depends mostly from players’ habits and some might find more practical display in one or two columns.
- Good Welcome Bonus 100% up to 122€ + 22 BetPoints
- Fantastic Choice of Bets
- Very Good and Aggressive Odds
- Visible and Rich Offer of Live Bets
Registration of new players is one of simpler in the industry. You can use standard registration via e-mail as well as fast one that uses profiles made on social networks. The registration process is standard one and consists from filling in of on-line form. Players should take care to correctly input all information.
If phrase “a picture is worth a thousand words” can be used for anything it is definitely choice of languages at 22Bet. Take a look!
Payment (Deposit & Withdrawal)
Just like language choices 22Bet supports record setting number of banking methods. It is almost impossible to find an unsupported method. Of course, the only exception is PayPal but we cannot take it as a major drawback since some far more famous bookmakers also don’t support it. In the table below we have showed some of more important payment methods but if you visit 22Bet and go to page with detailed description of all possible options you will see for yourself that the choice is indeed huge. Our recommendations!
22Bet – Reliability (Safety, Licence and Taxes)
22Bet uses SSL encryption, just like all other serious bookmakers, which makes communication between the site and player safe. 22Bet uses 128-bit encryption that is also used by banks for their internet banking.
Regarding license, 22Bet has good licence that comes from the Caribbean, or more precisely from Curacao, which carries nothing negative as the license is strong as any other issued in the European Union. The company is registered in Cypress being part of the same company that owns 1xbet. We can conclude this saying that 22Bet is a very reliable bookmaker.
Regarding taxes, we should say that customers from our country should bother themselves with it since they DOESN’T EXIST!!!
We can say that there is plenty of room for improvement in regard to user support. There is neither usual FAQ nor telephone support. Still, the user support department exists and can be contacted via e-mail or live chat. Contact via e-mail is divided into three segments; technical support, safety issues and partnership contact.
22Bet – Web Access
The first impression is very important and ours was more than positive. Our only complain could be that overview of sports placed on the left hand side of screen could be more visible, but that is anyway a matter of taste. Choice of colours closely follows 22Bet logo and there is nothing to complain about. It is important that it causes no eye strain. Functional buttons and overview of played bets are placed at usual place, so it wouldn’t take long to easily navigate the webpage.
22Bet has very good webpage optimised for access by mobile devices. There is no native app and we believe it is not needed. There is no big difference between PC and mobile sites and those who are familiar with PC version will easily find their way on their mobile phones.
Casino and other games
22Bet offers large choice of casino games besides sports betting. New casino players can expect separate welcome bonus and several others promotions. You can read HERE, in our special overview devoted to casino games, about what can be expected from 22Bet Casino.
22Bet – Conclusion
This young bookmaker was one of most pleasant surprised in 2018 in our test. We were positively surprised with wide choice of best, excellent odds, good welcome bonus and choice of casino games. The only drawback is absence of live streams.
Although 22Bet is one of newcomers on the market we must recommend it. It has, besides superior choice of bets and value of odds, a comprehensive offer of all other games of chance. Also, the welcome bonus is very good.
