At the time of writing, 22Bet does not offer a VIP Program, or a Loyalty Reward System for its Sportsbook.

Pre-Match Offer
4 / 5

  • At the time of writing, 22Bet offers odds on 15+ sports
  • Quality odds on offer, with several active sports markets
  • Minimum stake amount is 1 GBP, while the maximum stake amount depends on the sport being wagered on, the number of selections being made, and the odds on offer

Pre match offer

At the time of writing, 22Bet offers odds on over 15 sports. The betting site offers odds on popular sports like Football, Cricket and Basketball, as well as unique sports markets like Martial Arts, Darts, and Snooker, among others. This ensures that punters of all likings, have a market to choose, and punt on.

On that note, 22Bet offers a minimum stake amount of 1 GBP for Sports markets, and a maximum stake amount which differs, depending on the market that you are punting on, the odds that you are backing, and the number of selections that you have made.

Before placing a bet on any betting site, you must gauge the odds on offer for a bet that you may want to place. It may so be the case, that one betting site is offering better odds on a bet that you may want to place. In this case, you will reap a larger profit if you place a bet on that betting platform.

You must keep in mind that bookmakers earn off bookmaker’s margin, which in essence is the margin above an ideal market (100%). A margin which exceeds 110% is not worth punting on. Similarly, a margin which is nearer to the 100% mark, is better in nature.

You must determine the margin a bookmaker is commanding over you, before placing a bet on any betting site, let alone 22Bet. To determine bookmaker’s margin, you must calculate the Odds Overround for a bet. To determine the Odds Overround for a bet, you must convert fractional odds into the decimal form, for each outcome of a betting variant.

As soon as you have done this, divide each individual outcome of that betting variant by 100, and add the resulting numbers together. With the help of the resultant number, you can determine the bookmaker’s margin for that particular betting variant.

To determine the quality of odds on offer at 22Bet, we determined the Odds Overroundfor a match to be contested between Everton and Manchester United, in the English Premier League. The Odds Overround were found to be 103.1, which indicates that 22Bet offers excellent odds, and active sports betting markets, which is a good sign.

Esports

Esports have picked up pace up late, and it is of no surprise that 22Bet has jumped on the Esports bandwagon. Before placing a bet on an Esports market, you must perform your due diligence, and punt on a team which has a proven track record.

There are several local, and international Esports tournaments that place annually, and you have several options to choose from on 22Bet.

22Bet offers odds on the following Esports – Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, League of Legends, and Dota 2. To access the betting site’s Esports section, navigate to the “E-Sports FPS”, and the “E-Sports MOBA” options, at the bottom left of the sports section slider.

On that note, 22Bet offers a minimum stake amount of 1 GBP for Esports markets, and a maximum stake amount which differs, depending on the market that you are punting on, the odds that you are backing, and the number of selections that you have made.

Other Specials

At the time of writing, 22Bet offers odds on Lithuania and USA Politics. When it comes to USA Politics, you can choose to punt on the Presidential Elections 2020 Winner. When it comes to Lithuania Politics, you can choose to punt on Presidential Election 2024 – Who will be elected as Lithuanian President?

We hope that 22Bet offers Entertainment betting variants, in the near future. Its Politics offering needs sprucing up as well.

On that note, 22Bet offers a minimum stake amount of 1 GBP for Specials markets, and a maximum stake amount which differs, depending on the market that you are punting on, the odds that you are backing, and the number of selections that you have made.

Cash Out and Bet Builder

At the time of writing, 22Bet offers its customers an option to Cash Out, while it does not offers its customers Bet Builder. Given the popularity of Bet Builder in the world of online betting, this is rather odd. Nevertheless, you can make use of 22Bet’s Cash Out feature.

Cash Out allows you to retrieve partial winnings on a placed bet, if there ever comes about a situation in which you feel that you may lose a placed bet. It must be noted that you can only Cash Out a period of time before an in-play match is about to end.

The amount of money retrieved by Cashing Out depends on the odds in favour of your placed bet at the time of Cashing Out, and the exact instance of Cashing Out. If you are lucky, you may go on to win more than your initially placed stake.

We hope that 22Bet offers a Bet Builder feature in the near future.

ThePuntersPage Final Say

Having gauged 22Bet’s various offerings, there is no doubting the fact that the betting site is amongst the best in the United Kingdom.

Let’s first explore the betting site’s cons. 22Bet comes with a bang average welcome offer, which has a stringent set of associated terms and conditions. The betting site does not offer any Sportsbook promotional offers whatsoever. 22Bet does not offer a VIP Program, or a Loyalty Reward System as well.

The betting site does not offer live streaming, nor does it come with a Bet Builder feature. With that, let’s explore the betting site’s pros. 22Bet comes with an excellent, streamlined registration process, and a comprehensive list of deposit and withdrawal options.

22Bet offers quality odds on sports markets and comes with SSL encrypted transactions to promote security. 22Bet offers around the clock customer support service, an excellent in-play section, and a detailed responsible gambling section.

22Bet also comes with a dedicated statistics section, which can be of great help, when it comes to building a betting strategy. The betting site also offers a mobile app for Android and iOS users.
