The concept of online betting is to present a real-time opportunity for a punter to turn his predictions into real money! If you agree with this, then you will agree with Topbets that 22 bet offers more than just an opportunity for any punter to cash in from literally any competition on earth. It’s just something more than just a sports betting site!

22 bet is not an old gun in the industry but has since grown to be one of the top sports betting sites in the country thanks to their bottomless market offers that has something at least for everyone.

22 bet’s plethora of options in their sportsbook is mind-blowing and if that is not enough, their collection of slots and games in their casino will, surely, not leave you the same.

Where else to start reviewing this beautifully designed and well-packaged sports betting website than their welcome offer. 22 bet will match your initial deposit with a 100% bonus offer. But it’s upon you to maximize on this offer by depositing the maximum amount to redeem this bonanza which is shs.490, 000.

22 bet has over 48 different sports and everything you can wager on. From football, rugby, horse-racing to weather to USA politics, the company simply has anything and everything you can bet your money on. The lists can be summarized from the screenshots I share below;

Deposits

Depositing your money on 22 bet is very fast and simple! Simply open the main page on www.22bet.ug/ and click on Deposit on the top right corner of the screen. You can go direct by logging on to: https://22bet.ug/office/recharge

Choose the Mobile Money option of the number you registered with and click on it. Another window will pop-up (as seen above) prompting you to enter the amount and then confirm.

A USSD window will pop up on your phone to enter your Mobile Money PIN to confirm the transaction. For Airtel, the deposit is capped at shs.1,000 and shs.5,000,000 while for MTN, the minimum deposit is shs.1,000 and the maximum is shs.7,000,000.

Normally, 22 bet offers several options for depositing but is limited to only two –Airtel and MTN- for Uganda.

The WITHDRAWAL methods are pretty the same. Just follow the same procedure but this time click on the profile icon sandwiched in between Deposit and Menu buttons on the top right of the screen or click HERE for a direct link.

Click on Withdraw, choose your registered mobile money option and enter the amount you want to withdraw.

Again, the withdrawal limits are shs.5, 000,000 and shs.7, 000,000 for the respective Airtel and MTN accounts.

According to the company’s customer care service, the maximum returns is about €60,000 (approximately shs. 255,500,000). So, to draw all that money at once, 22 bet says that they will contact the customer in such circumstances. A situation that may raise doubt among punters who are aiming for the big kill.

That glitch aside, 22 bet offers the biggest variety of sports betting options I know in the country. Like I said there’s just too much in the markets for you to lack something to clutch on and win some money.

The sportsbook is well organized to cover the poor choice of dull colours for the layout.

The top bar is basically the self-care guide as well as the menu tab that contains links to several other markets.

Just below it is a live advertising banner that shows you different offers for new and active bonuses, promotion campaigns and partners you may want to know.

The third bar from the top is very key in your navigation. It contains the link to the sports where you will open tons of pre-match events from the different disciplines, the live events for live betting and the casino. The website is heavy and this was a genius way to package everything! The sports bar will guide you to the sportsbook.

Here you will be able to view the top leagues per sports, most favourite events and the upcoming events. It’s just a quick guide to what you are searching for or direction if you’re wandering in the wilderness.

LIVE button will plug you to a page for the live markets that are open from all the sports.

What actually stands out for 22 bet is that you can actually place your wagers on a combination of different sports from the variety that is offered.

In football, the markets for a single evet are more than Bongobongo and Gals Sports Betting because it goes further than just predicting combos. Here, a punter can go as far as betting on a random player to be carded and a penalty awarded, goals intervals and own goals, whether there will be a missed penalty to as far as the handicaps for off sides and corners in the match.

This is mind-blowing and thrilling fun to try out guessing such outcomes and statistics in a match. Now imagine that is a Liverpool-vs-Manchester United affair with both at their peak. It would be really fun to go the extra mile to predict the sideshows that could dominate such an encounter as you wind down the weekend on a Sunday evening, won’t it?

Their odds match with best! For example, see the comparison with betPawa and Gals Sports Betting from the first leg of the UEFA Europa League fixture between Slavia Prague and Liverpool below

Odds aside, the two sports betting websites had about 95 and 113 markets for the match but 22 bet had over 500. What a plethora of options to pick from!

22bet casino

22bet’s casino brings life into the gaming world. The website offers hundreds of games from over 50 top developers that every player should find something suitable.

The casino interphase is easy to navigate. There’s a dedicated tab for slots which is further split into subcategories comprising the Drops and Wins and races.

What is even more interesting is that 22bet brings the casino into your living room or rather phone with their famous live casino.

The live casino is an online livestream from a casino where games are played in real-time with a live dealers who a player can easily interact with as they gamble.

The casino offers some high-end live games with live-dealers from top producers like WINFINITY’s Cabaret Roulette, Auto Roulette and Tao Yuan Baccarat 2, Lucky Streak’s Blackjack7 and Roulette 1.

What’s even special is that the seasoned players who have developed a taste for products of particular providers like Winfinity, TVBET and 7 MOJOS, can check the boxes at the bottom left to narrow their search to their liking.

22bet has a very lucrative offer to attract new customers into their casino. A new player is guaranteed a 100% bonus of their first deposit up to shs.550, 000. To claim this, you have to make your deposit and bet on it.

Beginners are also sorted. 22 bet casino has a collection of slots and tables that one can try for free and then dive deep to chase the money after mastering the trade.

The security is also top-notch. The bookie uses the famous Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption system to shield the players from online criminals while their servers are also protected by advanced firewall software to prevent external attacks during transmission. But that is not enough, their vast services keep attracting fraudsters. Check their warning below;

Another challenge is that their casino has not been localized enough like the sportsbook. By this, I mean that most of the offers are in Euros, something that might make it hard to convince a new customer putting in mind that he can only deposit money using Uganda shillings. Other casino like Bongobongo and betPawa have local versions.

22bet hosts the famous Aviator game developed by SPribe.

Their minimum bet for this game is shs.400 slightly above betPawa’s version that accepts as little as shs1 per bet. The Aviator is simply a game of flights. It involves a plane flying across the screen and can fall or disappear at any time. What the gamers need to do is place the wager and make sure to withdraw your winnings before the plane crashes. While you wait, the higher the plane goes, the higher the risk of plane crashing but the higher the multiplier and before you cash out.

Customer care

The easiest and fastest way to approach the customer care for help is by calling direct to their line +256761114592 which is a bit costly. The same number can be accessed via WhatsApp but most times the reply takes long to reach. The platform has created a live chat which is a bit swift but the responses are more general for their overall international market and not specifically tailored for the Ugandan market. For example, an inquiry about their maximum payout below brings figures in Euros yet I deal with them in Uganda shillings. There’s need to have that aspect of local feeling to boost the confidence and understanding of a new customer to risk with the bookie.

The same applies to their email care services. The website needs to be update and have a direct link to their WhatsApp to avoid inconveniences.

But not to take anything away from them, their WhatsApp option is good once you get the attention on the other end. The call has nice local voices behind that are flexible with the national languages easing communication.

The brand has tried to improve their local presence by adding the image of famous musician Spice Diana but their general involvement is wanting. There’s need to do more and move into the big cities and towns to make new customers feel more secure. Their lack or rather quite presence of their physical permanent headquarters does not boost confidence as well.

Bonuses

There are more lucrative bonuses at 22 bet. We look at the main ones.

Friday Reload Bonus. This is a weekly special 100% bonus of up to shs.450, 000 rewarded to customers every Friday particularly for sports betting. Something to brighten your moods as you enter the busy sporting weekend.

You just need to accept receiving the bonuses and then deposit shs.4, 000 and above on Friday to receive it!

All you need to do to enjoy after depositing is to bet at least three times the amount in a multiple bet slip with at least three selection of at least 1.4 odds with that bonus within 24 hours. That means if the bonus is credited on Friday, then it must be used before Sunday but anyway, what will you be waiting with the usual Saturday gold rush open?

The equivalent of this in the 22bet casino offer is the 50% Wednesday Cash Splash where a customer is rewarded a weekly deposit bonus every Wednesday. To earn this, the player has to deposit at least shs.20,000 up to shs.880,000 on Wednesday. For example if you deposit shs.20,000, you will receive a bonus worth half of the money which is shs.10,000 automatically into your bonus account.

You must place bets with winnings equivalent to at least 40X the bonus.

Accumulator saver offer. Lost a bet by just one team? 22bet will refund you! This offer is valid for punters who stake at least shs.12, 794 up to shs.426, 449 in accumulator bet slips with more than six matches of at least 1.7 odds each.

If your slip meets this criteria, then you receive a free bet worth exactly your stake. You have to bet the whole bonus in a multiple bet of at least three selections, each above odd 1.49 inside seven days.

Cashout. 22bet also offers a cash-out for those doubting their remaining games or when you’ve lost interest in waiting for them. 22bet calls this the ‘bet slip sale’.

This function allows a customer to retrieve all or a portion of their stake before the matches in the bet slip run down.

The amount is determined by the system and applies to single and multiple bets.

To activate it, you just click on your betslip on My bet tab and click on sell.

And if you’re in hurry to go through the bets and sieve on what to bet on, pick 22bet’s accumulator of the day and get a 10% odd boost.

These accumulator’s of the day appear in the middle panel below the live and the favourite games. All you need is to click on add to betslip and place your bet.

Comparison with premier Bet and Bongobongo

In many ways, 22bet stands out as one of the top if not the top sports betting website in Uganda. Here, we’ll try to rate it against two other giants Premier Bet and Bongobongo, the former who is a long-term play in the Uganda sports betting spaces and the latter who is about the age of 22bet.

First, all the three are legitimate and fully licensed by the National Lotteries and Gaming Board of Uganda to operate betting and casino services.

Where else to start than at the doorstep. All the three websites offer 100% welcome bonus to new customers but with different limits. While Bongobongo and Premier Bet extend this offer to punters depositing as low as shs.500 and shs.4, 000, their maximum limit is dwarfed at shs. 20,000 and shs.200, 000 respectively. 22bet scores highly by just raising the bar a little to shs.4, 000 minimum but their maximum stretches up to shs.490, 000.

There’s even better news for the casino gamers whose upper bonus limit is stretched to shs.1, 200,000!

22bet is somehow ideal for the ambitious punters who want to win big. Bongobongo has limited their maximum winning to only shs.130, 000,000 while Premier Bet is slightly below to 22bet at shs.250, 000,000. 22bet’s maximum payout is capped at shs.255, 000,000 but the challenge is that they’re unclear about the withdraw methods for huge winnings. Since the three are all limited to mobile money that caps their transactions at shs.7, 000,000, they offer physical payment at their offices unlike 22bet who promise to “contact the customer” during that scenario.

22bet’s odds are competitive and have a minimal difference with the top sports betting websites. For example, they offered odds of 2.28-3.78-2.86 for Villareal’s home Europa League duel with Marseille which almost match Bongongobongo’s 2.4-3.7-2.76 and Premier Bet’s 2.25-4.0-2.9 for the 1X2 market as seen below;

However, they set themselves apart from the rest with a whopping 1,403 alternative markets for the same games as compared to Bongobongo’s 80 and Premier Bet’s 238! That is a load of goodies, right?

Q&A

What is the maximum payout?

The maximum winnings is shs.255, 700,000.

How do I withdraw my winnings if they exceed the mobile money limit?

The maximum return is limited to shs. 255, 700,000 (€60,000) per bet. The main available options in Uganda are Airtel and MTN Mobile Money. So, in case you win more than what the mobile carrier accepts, the 22bet agents will contact to guide on how to withdraw the winnings.
What happens to my bet if a match is abandoned?

If a match is abandoned and not played within 24 hours after the time the event was scheduled to kickoff, all bets on that particular match will be void and returned as odd 1. 22bet will calculate the remaining selections on the bet slip and pay.

Can I withdraw my bonus?

After you have successfully wagered the bonus or redeemed the bonus according to each bonus requirement, your main account will be credited with the remaining bonus, which will not exceed the initial bonus amount. For example, your first deposit bonus amount is shs.20, 000 and you successfully wagered it 5 times (shs.100, 000), then your remaining bonus funds is 150, 000 UGX, only shs.20, 000 will be credited to your main account.
