I have to mention that 22bet provides points called bet points for every bet you make on the betting site. These points can be redeemed later in for of betting stake. That means you can later convert them to money in your account and use them to bet even when you run out of money.

For existing customers, 22bet provides a 1005 bonus for all top ups capped at Ksh. 12,000 or USD 120. This however is a promotion called reload promotion and is bound to cease to exist when the promotion is over.

7. Playing casino games

Please note that the casino option for 22bet is currently unavailable. I will update you when it is up. You can also keep trying till you find when it is up and running.

8. Betting on virtual games/E-sports

E-sports have gained a lot of attention in recent years. 22bet provides a chance for gaming enthusiasts to bet on e-sports which in other words, are virtual sports. There are organizers, tournaments and payers in the virtual world of sports just like the real games. To bet on these however, you may need to understand how the e-sport ecosystem works.

With that said, I believe you are now comfortable to start placing bets with 22bet. They offer some of the best odds in Kenya on top of their lucrative bonuses and customer care. The best part for Mpesa users is that deposits are reflected on the site almost instantly (just like Sportpesa) and withdrawals are equally as fast.
