22bet is an operator integrated into the Cypriot operator Techsolutions Group Limited, although if we look closely it operates in Canada under a license from the Curaçao government, a very common practice in bookmakers or online casinos that do not have a license from the SEGOB. It is a young and ambitious bookmaker, having received this license in 2018, and offers bets all over the world. In fact, its website is available in 60 languages.
Table of Contents
It presents itself as a betting company created by betting enthusiasts, who knows how to give the user what they are looking for; and claims to offer the best performance with its odds. We are going to analyze 22bet in more depth, an operator that, in addition to sports betting, has a casino section and live casino, jackpot, toto or TV games, a more than complete online games offer.
What does 22bet offer us?
Visually, 22bet is not the most attractive page although navigation is very simple and intuitive. We won't take long to get used to it, although it is also true that at times it does not load as quickly as desired, which can be frustrating for the most impatient users. We will locate events quite quickly, although the large range of available markets sometimes makes it complex to find what we are looking for.
Fortunately, when we access a championship, the most prominent bets appear before entering the event itself. For example, in a football match we have bets on 1X2, double chance, over/under and handicaps. It is worth noting that the odds, in line with those of most betting sites, appear by default in decimal format, but 22bet allows Philippines to transform them into American odds, as well as the English or fractional system, Indonesian, Malay and Hong Kong, something practically unheard of in Canadian betting sites.
We have a welcome bonus of 100% up to 250 dollar that will be released in multiple bets, and if you top up your balance on Fridays, you can get up to $2$ extra each week. There is a wide variety of payment methods, most of them cryptocurrencies, although deposits made with this type of currency are excluded from the rollover. 22Bet has a mobile app that we can download from the website.
The customer service of this operator is one aspect that needs improvement, as 22bet can only be contacted through a form or email. Live betting enthusiasts will find a very comprehensive offering, with a wide variety of markets, on par with those found in pre-match betting and odds that can compete with those of most betting sites.
Welcome bonus to 22bet
As we were saying, 22bet welcomes its new users with a 100% bonus up to $250 after their first deposit. Before making the deposit, you must choose the sports betting bonus, and it will be automatically credited to your account as long as you have not marked the "I don't want any bonus" box. The minimum deposit to access the bonus is $1 or $1, so you will meet this minimum using the different payment methods. However, cryptocurrencies are excluded from the bonus.
The bonus is subject to a five-fold turnover of its value, and this wagering requirement must be met on combined bets of at least three selections. To be valid, in addition to being made with real balance, three selections included in the multiple bet must have odds of -250 (1.40) or higher. We have only 7 days to clear the bonus, and until then we will not be able to make any withdrawals from our account.
Other bonuses and promotions
The welcome bonus is not the only betting offer we can find at 22bet. Furthermore, it's not the only promotion that rewards our deposits, as the Friday reloads also have a prize. Below we detail the best betting promotions at 22bet, but you should regularly check the "Bonuses" section for the best deals.
- Friday recharge bonus: Deposit on a Friday and get a 100% bonus up to $200 with Friday RELOAD.
- Recovery bonus: recover 0.03% of the money bet every week between 20 and 20$.
sports and markets
22bet offers up to 40 different categories for betting, although not all of them are sports-related. We have football, boxing, baseball, basketball, or NFL, as well as different motor categories, horse races, trotters and greyhounds; but there are also bets on table football, keirin or auto race, Japanese motorcycles. Beyond sports, there are bets on politics, television or even on the weather.
If we look at the king sport, we see that a football match from a prominent league surpasses 1,600 available bets in several markets. We have Asian lines and totals, statistical bets, and some markets that are not found in all bookmakers. In other sports, we not reach this level, but we still find a wide range of markets to play.
The eSports section deserves a special mention, as we offer bets on Call of Duty, CS:GO, Dota 2, LoL, King of Glory, Rainbow Six, Overwatch, Rocket League, StarCraft or StarCraft II, a unique variety. In addition to all these video games, we also have bets on eLeagues, sports video games that are becoming increasingly popular.
Without being bad, the odds offered by 22bet are far from the best we find in Canadian bookmakers. We could place them at the level of those offered by operators such as Strendus, in the range of odds available in Canada. In some markets or events we find that the difference is greater, and here 22bet does have an advantage over other bookmakers, just as in those markets that are not found in other bookies and that are what give true value to this house.
Live betting (live section)
The layout of the live betting section on 22bet is similar to what we have for pre-match, as alongside the sports menu we have the event, result and standout bets, such as match winner, double chance, over/under or handicaps. Once again, there is a wide range of markets available, most of which are similar to what we found before the start of the match, although there are also live-specific bets such as next goal scorer.
Depending on the event we bet on, we have more or less statistical information available to follow the development of the match, but it is not 22bet's strong point. What we do have is the weather forecast, which can be crucial in some sports, pre-match statistical information, or a graph showing the evolution of the odds. What we don't have available is a streaming service where we can follow the events live.
From Canada, we have up to 34 payment methods available to complete our deposits or withdrawals at 22Bet. Although most of them -25- are cryptocurrencies, with Bitcoin at the forefront, we can manage funds through our MasterCard or VISA bank cards, electronic wallets Skrill, Skrill 1-tap, Perfect Money, and ePay, payment systems Neteller or Payeer, and online banking from Santander.
Depending on the method used for the operation, we will have a different minimum and maximum amount, but what is always the same is that no charge is applied for both deposits and withdrawals. Additionally, the money will be transferred immediately when you complete the deposit. In the case of withdrawals, it take a few days due to the withdrawal verification process. Depending on the method used, the waiting period will be longer or shorter.
On the 22bet website, there are repeated links to download the app for this betting site, which is available on iOS and Android. iOS users can also find it on the App Store and install it on their phone or tablet in the usual way. However, Android users will need to first download the .apk file and install it manually. You can manage your funds, place bets, or close bets at any time from anywhere.
In Canada, betting houses are divided between those with a license from the SEGOB and those that operate with a license from a third country. 22bet belongs to the second group, as it operates in Canada under the umbrella of the Curacao license, which should be sufficient to ensure that we are in a safe and reliable environment. The fact of having this license means that 22bet meets the demanding security requirements of the authorities of this Caribbean territory.
22bet operates using http and SSL protocols, ensuring that the website is encrypted and that your personal data, as well as funds and banking information, will be safe. Depending on the payment method you use, you need to verify your account before being able to make a withdrawal, which is also part of the multiple security measures presented by 22bet. In summary, there is nothing to worry about regarding security.
The contact form and email are the only methods of contacting customer support in case of any issues. If we go to the "Contact" section, the form appears where you need to indicate your name, email, and message, and they will reply within 24 hours. In this same section, there are a series of email addresses, among which two stand out: su[email protected] for technical support and [email protected].
There is also a very useful frequently asked questions section, especially when we are starting to play on 22bet. These are general questions and issues related to payments, bets, bonuses or the user's account, and it allows Philippines to solve many doubts. There are no specific 22bet profiles on social networks for Canada or Latin America, only profiles for countries such as Turkey or Kenya.
22bet: Opinions and conclusion
Undoubtedly, the weakest point of 22bet is its website. Not because it's difficult to use, but because there are so many markets available that sometimes it's hard to find the one we're looking for or even to load it. Thus, its best virtue, a wide range of markets that exceeds 1,000 bets available before a major football competition, can also be its greatest handicap. A problem that worsens in live betting.
The profile that best fits the 22bet offer is that of the veteran player, especially one who bets pre-match and is looking for very specific markets. We will not stop repeating that this is the main attraction of 22bet. A player who takes his first steps in the world of betting can also take full advantage of 22bet's offer, although he be overwhelmed by the torrent of information we have.
A priori, we have a good welcome bonus, although we only have 7 days to clear it and we can only place combined bets. It be more interesting to take advantage of other bonuses, such as the one offered for making deposits every Friday. The promotions are quite good, and we have a good app available. The only thing missing is a live chat or customer service phone number to improve the speed of response to the user in case of any incidents.
