Introduction

Having been founded in 2020, 2kBet is one of the newcomers in the sports betting world. However, as you are about to see in our 2kBet review, lack of experience does not necessarily mean lack of quality. The bookie made sure to hit the ground running with a vast variety of markets available, as well as an impressively extensive list of competition coverage. As you read through this review, you’ll quickly realise that these new guys on the block mean business.

 

Registration Process
5 / 5

  • Straightforward process
  • Immediate confirmation

Registrations used to be long and tedious, but most new bookies have reviewed the process and tried to make it as simple and straightforward as possible. We can safely say that 2kBet have succeeded in doing just that! After hitting the ‘Join Now’ button, new customers are asked to provide their email, phone number and set a password.

Just by doing so, you’re already nearly half-way there. As always, a strong password is suggested. Just in case you happen to forget or want to change it, worry not – the process to reset it is very simple.

After choosing a secure password, the next step would be to provide the necessary personal details and choose the currency and marketing preferences. At this stage, new customers can also enter a promo code if one is available.

After submitting, customers will be asked to activate their account by inputting a 4-digit code sent via SMS and e-mail. Once this is done, you may proceed to fund your account and start betting.

 

Deposits and Withdrawals Options
4 / 5

When it comes to deposits and withdrawals, 2kBet offer a wide variety of options ranging from debit cards (VISA, Maestro, Diners Club) to e-wallets (such as MuchBetter, Trustly, and others) and fast bank transfers. In general, there is a minimum deposit of £20 on all deposit options except for paysafecard and PayViaPhone, which have a minimum deposit of £10.

2kBet Deposit Options Screenshot

Customers will receive an email notification with transaction details once a deposit is made.

Any funds deposited into the account become instantly available for use. Withdrawals, on the other hand, can take between 3 to 7 business days to be completed.

While the minimum deposit is £10, customers using the PayViaPhone option are then subjected to a 15% processing fee, which is applicable on all deposits made using this option. All other options do not have any extra fees. Certain options also have a maximum deposit limit of £700.

The options available for withdrawals are Visa/Mastercard debit cards, PayPal and ecoPayz. It is important to note that each withdrawal is subject to a fixed processing fee of £2.50, regardless of the amount being withdrawn. Bear in mind that Visa and Mastercard credit/debit card withdrawals are limited in certain countries due to local issuer restrictions.

2kBet would eventually also require its customers to verify their details by uploading a few additional documents, such as a copy of their ID card/passport or a recent document as a proof of address. This can easily be done by going to the ‘Cashier’ menu and clicking on ‘Verify ID’.

Welcome Offer
3.5 / 5

  • Bet £10 and get £30 in free bets
  • Bonus needs to be wagered 10 times before being received and expires after 7 days
  • Free bets to be used on odds greater than 1.5

At the time of writing this 2kBet review, the operator is offering a welcome bonus of £30 in free bets to new customers, provided they place at least £10 in valid bets. The free bet credit will be available as soon as £10 in accumulated real bets have been spent. The free bets must then be played as a one-time stake on odds of not less than 1.5. The subsequent winnings from the free bet must then be wagered ten times before they may be withdrawn.

Both the bonus and the winnings must happen within 7 days from them being credited to the customer’s account, which is why we would suggest planning where to place the free bets before claiming the bonus in order to make best use of the time window available. The maximum conversion amount from this promotion is £20. Initial deposits using Skrill are not accepted for this welcome bonus.

Sportsbook Promotions
4 / 5

  • Cash prizes for customers within the Top 5 place of promo leaderboards
  • Mix of inter-sport and sport-specific promotions
  • Simple process to participate

At the time of writing, 2kBet has an interesting variety of ongoing sportsbook promotions and there seems to be one for everyone! The Super Fan promo gives the opportunity to anyone competing to win up to £150 by topping the leaderboard of the top 5 wagering players within a specific month. You can participate in this promotion by inputting the promo code: SPLIT when depositing an amount which is larger than £10. Then, place a minimum of £50 worth of qualifying bets on any sport event of your liking. Qualifying bets must not be returned or cashed out.

The top 5 players at the end of the promotional period get prizes depending on their final position. Prizes for the different ranks are set as follows:

Apart from the above sportsbook promotion, 2kBet also offers several cashback offers on going tournaments. Naturally, different terms and conditions apply for each promotion, which is why we suggest always checking the T&Cs first to avoid any undesired surprises.

All promotions found on the 2kBet website are also communicated to customers via promotional emails with all the relevant details. You can choose to start receiving these offers via email from the ‘Account’ page.

VIP/Loyalty Programme

One of the most attractive offers we have seen on the 2kBet platform is the ‘Missions’ page, where customers can complete said missions to earn points. By doing so, they are promoted to higher levels where they will be able to unlock exclusive offers and benefits. The total points won can then be redeemed in free bets, free spins, bonus money or match deposit bonuses.

Pre-match Offer
4.5 / 5

  • Decimal, Fractional, American, Hong Kong, Malay and Indo odds
  • 3 different interface layouts to choose from
  • Extensive choice of sports, including ski jumping, petanque and pesapallo
  • Depth of national leagues – as far as youth leagues in some countries

Sports

This is probably the most impressive thing about 2kBet – they have a remarkable 42 different sports (including all esports as one) available to bet on. The choice ranges from football, tennis, cricket, rugby and horse racing to other sports such as chess, biathlon, ski jumping and freestyle wrestling.

The wide sportsbook variety is then coupled with depth of choice when it comes to different countries and leagues. 2kBet offers customers a huge number of submarkets as well as outright bets on tournament winners. You’ll also be able to find other specials, such as an under/over on total converted penalties.

One might think that, with such a substantial number of options, 2kBet’s margins would be quite high. However, this is not the case, as their odds overround can confirm. To calculate this, we have taken five random matches, including some from remote leagues such as the South Korean Women’s league – the result was an average of around 107.2%. This is well below the 110% wall, and means that 2kBet has comparably competitive odds.

2kBet sets a maximum stake amount which varies depending on the odds chosen. Customers cannot exceed the maximum stake when placing bets on main events. To offset this, 2kBet have added a Superbet option, with which you can request a stake which goes over and above the maximum allowed. This feature will notify the traders and the bet may be approved or disapproved at their discretion. Initially, you’ll start out at 2kBet with lower limits, but these will start to increase as you place more bets.

Esports

If you enjoy betting on esports, 2kBet has got 10 different events for this category. The most popular ones would be CS:GO, Dota 2 and League of Legends. The other events available are Call of Duty, King of Glory, Overwatch, Rainbow Six, StarCraft II, VALORANT and Warcraft III.

Here 2kBet also offers the opportunity to customers to use the early cash out option while also setting a maximum stake limit. The latter varies on the game being played and which odds were chosen. Once again, the Superbet feature is available for customers who wish to place stakes which are higher than the maximum allowed.

Other Specials

Just in case the sports-related events are not enough, 2kBet also offers several special events such as Space Specials, BBC Sports Personality of the Year, a Hot Dog Eating competition in the USA as well as a number of politics-related events happening worldwide. There really is something for everyone here.

As with other events, there is a maximum stake which users can place by default; however, it is worth noting that the Superbet feature is also available on these bets.

Cash Out & Bet Builder

Unfortunately, 2kBet has no bet-builder option. Having said that, we feel that the number of submarkets available make up for this, especially on the popular matches. The early cash out option is also available on most of the main events, which is great news.

 

Live Offer
3.5 / 5

  • Live match visualisations available
  • No live-streaming option
  • Great in-play options

One setback to the sportsbook offering is that there is no live-streaming option, which is something that the bigger players in the industry tend to offer. To counteract this, 2kBet offers a live visualisation and sound notifications of the match, highlighting events such as corners, throw-ins, goals and free kicks.

2kBet Live Coverage Screenshot

The site’s live coverage is abundant, with live odds available in most of the sports available for pre-match betting, including esports. Aside from the more popular leagues in each sport, more niche competitions such as the Algerian U21 Ligue and the Armenian Snooker Cup are also covered. Odds are updated in a timely manner across the board, with green and red arrows notifying customers when the odds have increased or decreased during an event.

 

Security
4.5 / 5

  • Licensed by the UK Gambling Commission
  • Feature to set personal limits and self-exclusions
  • Detailed privacy policy

The entire process of placing a bet online should be as safe and secure for customers as possible. 2kBet ensure their customers that their personal data is securely encrypted and the payment methods associated with the website are reliable and legitimate. Their privacy policy is as detailed as it gets, with all the answers to any privacy-related questions you may have.

Personal Limits

2kBet also allow customers to set up personal limits, such as deposit limits, wager limits (per day/week/month), time-outs, reality checks and self-exclusions. These may be found under the ‘Account’ menu at the top of the site as seen below:

Service and Customer Support
3.5 / 5

  • 24/7 Chat available
  • Detailed FAQ page
  • Support available via email

2kBet have recognised how pivotal customer support is for a site like theirs, making sure that punters get all the help they need as quickly and easily as possible. The website has a 24/7 chat available with agents on the other end quick to respond, adding screenshots to their replies to help you locate whatever the answer is referring to.

The FAQ section on the desktop site is very detailed, and contains all the important questions and concise answers. The section is well-organised and split into topics, with the top questions fixed in place while other, presumably less frequently asked questions, are available via a ‘Show All’ button for each topic.

2kBet FAQ Section Screenshot

It seems as if customer support is only offered in English, as is the case with all other pages within 2kBet. The FAQ page also contains the link which takes customers to the chat feature or a pop-up window to communicate via email. The chat box can also be opened in a separate window, preventing you from accidentally closing it and losing all communication.

We contacted 2kBet’s customer support to clarify which withdrawal methods are available to UK users, as this was not entirely clear on their page. While they answered promptly, they did not really provide a concrete answer to our query, instead directing us back to the original page.

Design & Usability
3.5 / 5

  • Changeable layout
  • Easy toggle for odd formats
  • No historic team statistics available

2kBet allows customers to toggle between a modern, classic and combo layout, depending on the customer’s preference. It also allows you to switch the odds format from decimal to fractional, American, Hong Kong or other formats.

2kBet Design Screenshot

At the time of writing, the website seems to have a few resizing issues for the buttons in the top menu, which could become annoying on certain devices. The website also tends to require a refresh after certain pop-up windows are used, as some menus seem to vanish after they are opened. However, a quick refresh should solve this little glitch.

Onsite Statistics

Unfortunately, 2kBet does not offer any team or tournament statistics on the site, apart from the ability to search for previous results by competition and team name in date ranges of 2 days. Which, in all honesty, is not really going to help someone who wants to base their decision based on some previous form.

2kBet Results Centre Screenshot

 

Mobile
3 / 5

  • Mobile-friendly website
  • No Mobile App available
  • Bugs on certain pop-up windows

With most web traffic coming through mobile devices these days, 2kBet have made sure that their betting site is mobile-friendly too. Apart from their mobile site, however, there is no betting app available on the Apple AppStore and Google Play Store just yet.

Navigation through the mobile site is a bit buggy, resulting in a few usability issues that require some attention. In the FAQ page, the top questions section does not seem to be accessible, so customers are restricted to chatting or sending an email in order to get the answer to a question from their phone.

 

Other Products

  • Wide variety of game providers
  • Welcome bonus on casino: 100% up to £100 and free spins
  • Great monthly free spins and bonus offers on slots

Apart from sportsbook, 2kBet also offers slots, casino, live casino, and jackpots, as well as casual games which customers can try out at their own leisure. Table and card games such as roulette and blackjack are available, as well as popular slots such as Gonzo’s Quest and Book of Dead. The Live Casino option is also varied, with more than 35 games being offered.

Casino Bonuses

2kBet currently has a welcome bonus for new customers, which matches 100% of your initial deposit in bonus money (up to £100) as well as granting 20 free spins on Book of Dead. Bonus or any winnings from the free spins must be wagered 50 times, and will expire in 30 days from when the amount and spins were credited to the account.

TPP Final Say And Overall Rating

In conclusion, 2kBet has managed to get off to a blazing start with its impressive sportsbook coverage, which competes with the biggest betting sites. Things are not perfect just yet, though, with a few minor design issues needing to be addressed and resolved. Nevertheless, the depth of competitions available truly impressed us, and it may well be among the few international betting sites to be offering odds on certain remote leagues!
