22bet general information

22bet, which has been present on the online sports betting market since 2017, is owned by TECHSOLUTIONS (CY) GROUP LIMITED, a company registered in Cyprus. Shortly after its launch, 22bet became especially popular with sports bettors in Europe. This is mainly due to the fact that the bookmaker offers high sign up bonuses compared to the market average. However, there’s a lot of misinformation currently available on the internet about this bookie, so we have signed up, tested the site and gathered all the details you’ll need in order to decide if you should open an account with this online bookmaker or not.

22Bet.com is licensed in Curacao, and their “.com” domain has extensive international reach – is available in over 50 languages, and offers a breathtaking selection of currencies. Upon registration we wanted to inquire more about the license, because, in some of 22Bet’s press releases, they had mentioned they are also licensed in the UK (some of our competitors also claim this in their reviews). This information is particularly important to us, due to the fact that we always give a smaller rating to bookies licensed exclusively in Curacao, as this is one of the gambling jurisdictions that is NOT known for supporting player complaints or helping unsatisfied customers settle their issues with a bookie. Despite their customer service reps confirming that they are licensed in the Uk, we did not manage to corroborate this with the info available on their site, nor did we manage to find their license number. In addition, they are not listed on the Uk’s Gambling commission website, which to us is a huge downside, hence the lower score in our “reliability” rating. Indeed, the group states they also run 22Bet.co.uk, which is licensed from the UKGC and is operated by Tonybet, but when trying to access the url we are told that Tonybet is no longer providing services in the Uk.

To be fair, since we signed up with 22BET, we have not experienced any issues, despite the fact that several of our tipsters have won big amounts. We always got paid on time, verification went smoothly and, even when claiming bonuses and winning, we still got paid (which is not the case with a lot of other bookies that are known for closing user accounts after winning big, voiding wins without any reason etc.).

Sign up bonus 100% up to 122€

The principle of the 22BET bonus is simple – new players to the site can receive a bonus that matches their first deposit, of an amount up to 122 euros, once they have placed their deposit. Remember, no promo code needs to be supplied to receive this welcome offer.

22Bet Registration

Registration is easy, quick and very similar to the process you have to follow when registering with the majority of online bookmakers. However, in case you experience any issues, or this is your first time signing up with a bookie, you can always refer to our guide below for assistance:

After completing your registration, a screen may appear asking you for your preferred banking method. As you can input this information later, you may disregard the screen at this time, if you wish.

As is the case with all online bookmakers, you will need to verify your identity before requesting a withdrawal, so, once you confirm your email, head over to the “personal profile” located in the top right corner to fill in your profile and upload the required documents to verify your identity (photo/scan of your ID/passport/driving license etc.) 

22Bet Design & Functionality

When we first looked at 22-bet’s website, we could immediately list 22 reasons why the bookie would fail in all design contests. The header itself, and the main menu items look ridiculous, to put it mildly, and reminded us of HTML-based, static websites from the ’90s. In the menu on the left, which contains all available sports you can bet on, the designers of the site used a faint gray color that does not look good against a white background. Not to mention that after a couple of minutes, your eyes will probably start hurting.  The situation is slightly better in the case of the current sports event offer in the middle column, where the developers at least paid attention to the fact that the various sports events and their related info (markets, odds) are relatively easy to read.

However, the site loads fast on any device and all available sections  (Sports, Live, Casino, etc.) can be accessed directly from the home page. Registration is easy via the main page, and necessary sports betting related info (i.e. statistics) can also be found relatively quickly. If you can ignore the design, or you enjoy it, then it’s worth sticking around and giving 22bet a chance…at least for the huge odds they provide, especially for football and horse racing events!

22Bet sportsbook - huge odds...practically unbeaten by the majority of bookies in Ireland!

22bet offers one of the widest varieties of betting we have ever seen, which is basically the main reason we recommend this bookie. You’ll have access to more than 60.000 pre-match events per month. The bookmaker offers 450 extra markets at every football match, like Draw in any of the two halves, 3-Way totals and Winning margins. Features like the Edit My Βet and Bet Slip Sale (which is basically “cash out”), will enhance the players’ betting experience.

Traditional sports are widely represented here – you’ll find sports such as tennis, football,horse racing, hockey, golf and more. Many e-sports events can be found as well in the dedicated e-sports section, plus, all tournaments and live events can be watched live for free. In addition to popular e-sports like CS: GO, you can bet on Call of Duty, Dota 2, League of Legends, King of Glory, Rainbow Six and Star Craft too.

Interesting fact to keep in mind: this bookie is one of the few in the world where you can bet on weather (yeah you read it correctly), Nobel prize winners, political events and even Rap Battles.

Another thing we like is the fact that the minimum bet is 1€ which makes 22Bet the ideal bookmaker for those of us who want to start our sport betting careers without a big budget. But, if you can afford to spend a lot of money, you should know there’s no maximum bet limit. 

ODDS

22Bet sports betting section comes with a 95%+ payout on the most important sports, like football, basketball and tennis, especially for the 1X2 and Over/Under markets. Asian markets come with below-par odds, at 94%+. Overall, though, 22Bet is in our top 3 bookies in Ireland, when it comes to the odds they offer. So signing up with them and placing bets was  completely worth our while!

22Bet real time betting

22Bet Live betting section is more than competitive, offering 1.000 live events monthly from a wide array of sports. Apart from the main ones, the players may place their wagers on horse races, cricket and volleyball. An above-average payout of 95% awaits the punters on all the main markets, while at every football match 250+ extra bets are available, like Asian Handicaps and Totals, Next Goal and Team to Score the Last Goal. 22Bet’s Live Stream comes with tons of matches from the best leagues, like Serie A, La Liga and Bundesliga, along with a Multi Live feature.

Mobile solutions at 22bet

Somewhat surprisingly, the mobile site of 22bet looks better than the classic website. Plus, it’s fairly easy to use, and even on a smaller-screen smartphone it provides a relatively good user experience. As for apps, the company’s  developers have come up with a highly functional, user-friendly mobile app that is available for both iOS and Android.

22Bet payment options

The Cypriot-based service provider provides its customers with quite a few different types of payment methods for making deposits and withdrawals. Only a part of these can be used from Ireland, but the supply is plentiful, and the following methods are suitable for both topping up and withdrawing money:

  • Bank and credit cards: Visa & Mastercard
  • Bank Transfer
  • Cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin and about a dozen other cryptocurrencies
  • E-wallets: Skrill, Skrill 1-Tap, Perfect Money, Epay, Sticpay
  • Payment systems: NETELLER, ecoPayz, Payeer
  • Pre-paid cards: Paysafecard

Keep in mind the “golden rule” of topping up your account: if possible, top up your balance with the banking method you want to use later to get your winnings, because that way you will get your money much faster.

Let’s take a few other important things:

  The minimum amount accepted for your deposits is 1€ (the maximum amount that can be topped up in one single deposit is not specified on the website, so we can conclude that there’s no limit, i.e. you can top up any amount you wish). ).

The bookie does not charge a fee for your payments, regardless of the banking option you select, all transactions are commission-free).

As far as withdrawal is concerned, the minimum amount that can be withdrawn varies from 1.5€ to 10€ (the maximum amount that can be withdrawn through one transaction is also not specified on the website, butone of our tipsters cashed out 5.000€ in a single request).

The turnaround time varies quite a bit for each method: it can take up to 7 days for debit/credit cards and bank transfers , but for all other options (e-wallets, payment systems, cryptocurrencies) it only averages 15 minutes.

22Bet Support

22bet’s customer service can be contacted via online chat, online messaging form or at one of the email addresses provided on the website. Using the online chat option, they respond relatively quickly, but in the case of e-mail inquiries, one has to wait at least 24 hours to get an answer to your question (s).

It’s very important to also add that, although I have not had any issues with 22bet’s customer support in Ireland, my colleagues who live in Germany and Hungary (and who created accounts with this bookie in the past few weeks) have complained about rude, disrespectful agents. In one instance, for example, when one of our German expert tipsters inquired about a certain banking option, the agent replied “are you not able to read what I am saying..I don’t see this payment method available so stop asking, I am busy with other customers”. This is highly disappointing , as great support is one of our main criteria for ranking bookies on our website. We raised this issue with 22bet’s management and we were assured these were only isolated incidents that will be handled and fixed immediately. But, for the time being, we rank 22bet’s as one of the weakest bookies in terms of customer service, based solely on our team’s experience.

22Bet conclusion

This review reflects solely and exclusively our views on 22bet, based on our experiences after signing up and using most of the site’s functionalities. We have done our best to objectively present the company and the services it provides. But, of course,  it’s up to you whether you decide to open an account with them or rather try your luck elsewhere. However, keep in mind that, if you’re looking for the best sign up bonus available on the Irish market, along with some of the highest odds and huge sportS betting offer, this bookie is a perfect choice for you.
