In the sports betting world, Malawians have a vast array of options. Amongst these alternatives is 22Bet, an online betting platform that sprung up in 2017. 

Although this launch date places it amongst the most recent online gambling sites, 22Bet has made its life’s mission to provide punters with a thrilling gambling adventure on a mobile-compatible sportsbook with a vast array of betting options to meet the needs of Malawian gamblers.

At 22Bet, one thing users will love is their straightforward approach. Right from the homepage’s footer, bettors can see its location and other licensing information. Speaking of licensing, 22Bet has a valid license from the government of Curacao. Its Malawi product is also regulated by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission (KGC). Hence, the site provides a completely safe environment.

In this review, we’ll go over the registration process, what options are available for transactions, how 22Bet’s sports betting product ranks, and more. Without further ado, let’s see what this bookmaker has in store for Malawians.

The Registration Process at 22Bet

To kick-start your gambling journey at 22Bet, you need to complete the registration process, and you can do so by following the steps below:

  1. Head to the 22Bet official website. Once you’re in, click on the legible “Registration” icon in the top right corner.
  2. Input your details, including your First Name, Surname, Phone Number, and Password.
  3. Next, you can select a bonus offer. You can opt for the “Bonus for Sports Betting” option.
  4. Enter the confirmation code sent via your phone number.
  5. Click the “T&Cs” checkbox and click on “Register.” Now, you should be able to make deposits and place bets on your favorite games.

While the sign-up process at 22Bet Malawi was one of the easiest we’d ever come across, some bettors may have reservations concerning the phone number activation procedure. Customer support offers resolutions to players who are encountering any problems with their accounts.

Deposits and Withdrawals at 22Bet

Immediately after you register on the 22Bet platform, you’re entered into a banking page to choose a preferred payment method to process transactions. Malawians have access to plenty of banking options cutting across Debit/Credit Cards, eWallets, and cryptocurrencies – this bookie has one of the most extensive lists of crypto payments at any gambling site.

22Bet doesn’t have a set maximum limit for deposits. So, high rollers who like to place big bets will have no issues. On most payment alternatives available on 22Bet, there’s a 22 ZMW minimum deposit.

You will find numerous withdrawal options available for secure payouts. Thankfully, 22Bet offers “lower than average” minimum limits on withdrawals. Punters can make requests as low as 35 ZMW.

Judging by the limits or lack of at the sportsbook, it’s clear that the bookmaker takes a more inclusive approach to accommodate all betting levels. Also, 22Bet doesn’t charge a fee for transactions.

Sports Betting at 22Bet

Although the sports betting platform launched operations relatively recently, it has one of the most extensive markets in the iGaming world. At 22Bet Malawi, there are about 50 different types of bets and 1500 odds for every match, and players can bet on major sporting events like:

  • Football
  • Cricket
  • Ice Hockey
  • Tennis
  • Darts
  • Cycling
  • Volleyball
  • Baseball
  • Boxing
  • Formula One
  • UFC
  • Boxing

That said, while Malawian players have different betting options on an array of sporting events, 22Bet has some nifty features in the mix. During our time here, one thing that caught our attention was the early cashout feature. Although it’s only available on selected events, this add-on can help reduce player losses.

Live Betting at 22Bet

To commence live betting, click the “live” icon at the top segment of the sports section. Here, you can treat yourself to numerous live events and place wagers based on observable statistics.

However, 22Bet Malawi lags behind the competition in the live streaming aspect. Compared to other bookmaker sites that offer players high-quality streams of real-time events, we couldn’t find a live streaming event to watch on their platform. For a site with its reputation, this is one area we hope is improved subsequently.
