About 22Bet

22Bet is hardly the best-known of sports betting sites, which should be no great surprise given that it was only launched in 2018. The site is operated by the Estonian-based company TonyBet OU, which in turn is part of the TonyBet brand first established in Lithuania in 2009.

It would therefore seem that 22Bet's credentials in the gambling world are stronger than they might appear on first inspection. But how does the site actually shape up against much longer-lived rivals?

Promotions

It's the bonuses and promos side of a sports betting site that often most convinces someone to sign up for it in the first place. Unfortunately, and slightly bafflingly given that it still needs to build up its reputation as such a young site, 22Bet seems to have focused the bulk of its promotions so far on its online casino offering, rather than the sports betting one. 

Nonetheless, if you intend to use the online casino anyway, you might be tempted to register by such advertised promotions as: 

  • Welcome bonuses for the sportsbook, casino and live casino 

  • In-play bet deals 

  • Extra spins each week 

  • Reload promos 

  • Promos focused on certain days of the week

Sports Betting Types and Markets

While 22Bet serves up the wealth of sporting categories that you would expect, there's an especially strong focus on the likes of: 

  • Football, including the UEFA Champions League, FIFA World Cup, English Premier League and other leading national and international competitions 

  • Tennis, such as the obvious Grand Slam tournaments and rather less obvious ATP and ITF events

  • Basketball competitions like the NBA, Euroleague and many others around the globe 

  • Ice hockey in both Russia and North America

  • Golf tournaments such as the Open Championship and the Irish Open

Curiously, there wasn't a horse racing category at the time of our visit to the site; however, given how sought-after horse racing betting tends to be, we wouldn't be surprised if 22Bet did launch such a section of its site in the not-too-distant future.

A wide range of sports betting types and coverage are available at 22Bet

Betting Coverage

While there wasn't any dedicated downloadable mobile app being offered for 22Bet at the time of this review being written, the site caters for smartphone gamblers regardless, by optimising itself nicely for a smaller screen whenever one navigates to the site through such a device's web browser.

Furthermore, the site has a complete section devoted to in-play betting, accessible to both desktop and mobile users, enabling gamblers to have a punt on the outcome of football, tennis, basketball and other sporting fixtures while they are actually taking place.

Software and Graphics

The 22Bet site is based on a colour scheme of different shades of turquoise, with splashes of white and grey. If we're honest, it's not the most enthralling-looking site design we've seen in the online sportsbook industry, although it'll obviously be the sports betting itself that represents the primary attraction for the vast majority of people having a flutter here.

Thankfully, the process of navigating and using the site in general is a mostly pleasurable one, with the various menu options being laid out where you would expect them to be. The main sports page is made up of three main sections, so just be sure to click on the one you wish to scroll up or down, before using the browser scrollbar or the up and down arrow keys on your keyboard to do precisely that.

Extra Value

Admittedly, 22Bet doesn't try to do a huge number of things that other sportsbooks don't do.

We do, though, quite like the 'Match of the Day' section, which enables you to place an in-play bet on a particular highlighted event, and then receive a certain amount of free bets if you lose a certain amount of money. All that you have to do is click 'Match of the Day' at the top of the page to see today's showcased fixture.

Other Offerings

One aspect of the 22Bet experience that is especially strong, is the casino side of things. Not only are many of the site's promos centred on the site's casino offerings, but the variety of games and software providers is very impressive - think many hundreds of slots, blackjack and roulette titles from industry-leading developers like NetEnt, Play'n GO, NextGen, Quickspin and many more.

Oh, and there are also live casino and 'live games' sections of the site that enable you to immerse yourself in the finest in live blackjack, roulette, baccarat, poker and more, in the (virtual) company of glamorous hosts.

Deposit and Withdrawal Methods

Adding money to your account at 22Bet is pretty straightforward, helped by the fact that most of the obvious payment methods used on sites like these are accepted.

Customer Support

All of the most obvious means of getting help are available at 22Bet, although it may not be the easiest process to find them. You can find the link for the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section, for instance, by scrolling down on the centre section of the site interface from the main page. From here, you'll also be able to learn more about the site's terms and conditions and policies in relation to responsible gambling, security and privacy.

The site team can be contacted directly via a straightforward online form, or if you'd like to receive an even swifter response, you can always activate the 'live chat' functionality by clicking on the logo for it in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. 

Who Can Play?

The site doesn't expressly forbid prospective members from any particular country from signing up, instead emphasising in its terms and conditions that such users must ensure first that they are complying with the law in their given jurisdiction.

Below are a few countries that we do understand to be restricted, however: 

  • France

  • Iran 

  • Italy 

  • The Netherlands

  • Poland

  • Switzerland

  • The United States of America

  • Portugal

  • Spain 

Licence

TonyBet's Estonian arm, which is responsible for running 22Bet, is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission.

Bottom Line

22Bet isn't the most spectacular-looking online sportsbook we've ever seen, or even the most generously feature-packed, but it doesn't necessarily need to be either of those things. It's a solid option for sports betting that also proves to be a surprisingly comprehensive online casino portal, to such an extent that you might even sign up here for the casino and live casino offerings alone.

Register today, and you should have reason to be pleased by a site that actually offers a more all-encompassing range of high-quality gambling options than you might expect, given its relative youth.
