22Bet Sportsbook Review
22Bet has been delivering Sports and Casino based products for over 10 years, jumping on the bookmaking bandwagon in 2007. Licensed by the Curacao regulatory body, 22Bet caters for customers worldwide, with mainly positive but also conflicting reviews found in the online space. Most of these issues focus on not receiving bonuses for depositing money so be aware that this could happen and you may need to wait and solve this issue before starting gameplay.
One thing is for certain; 22Bet delivers a huge range of sports with considerable breadth and depth of betting markets for customers to enjoy. The homepage first loads with probably the most eSports available on any individual site, including Tekken, Quake and Starcraft, but you can head over to the real Sports section if this is your thing. Football, Horse Racing, Boxing and loads more are on offer, along with useful highlights and headers to show you what major events are imminent and worth exploring for bet placing. You can place singles and Accas, in addition to niche bet types like Luckys and System bets – 22Bet has a strong product offering here. The Bonus tab on the site is where you can find some tasty promotions for both new and existing customers, 122% for your first deposit and 22% for the second. Currently it doesn’t seem like form of price boosts are available, something it would be great to see added in the future.
Continuing with the mass of choice, 22Bet offers as much variety in the Live Betting section as for pre-match play. Real-time updating odds, along with a nice bunch of supporting statistics and visual, ensure customers are engaged whilst betting on events as they progress. The Cash Out feature is also an option for any bets you place either live or before the event has started.
22Bet offers a range of online casino slots and games, but unfortunately none of the modern video slots from leading providers – BetSoft provide the highest quality. Evolution Gaming drives the Live Casino area with Roulette, Poker and Blackjack, so you can be certain your experience in here is up to standard. Casino based promotions are also on offer to entice customers away from sports betting.
Usability of the Site
22Bet has a huge range of markets to bet on across the site, and unfortunately at time this make it feel a little cluttered – it’s sometimes easy to get lost in the mass of choice. Having said that, once you get a feel for where the main toolbars are, its quick and easy to navigate around the site and get your bets on. The branding and advertising is generally crisp and modern, but could be more unique to ensure customers remember the bookmaker over others. The addition of statistics and results is a nice addition to the site, particularly for those who love to check previous form, although the Shop link doesn’t actually exist. All the major deposit and withdrawal methods are available within 22Bet. Currently only email support is available for customers, and obviously this comes with a likely wait time for any response and resolution to your query.
In conclusion, 22Bet’s biggest strength is in the large offering for both sports and specific markets on its site. If the site can just tidy up the overall layout and feel a little, then it could be on to a winner and is likely to gain many new customers in the future. The lack of strong licenses and regulatory bodies is not ideal, so this would also be an area that 22Bet will hopefully focus on in the future.
