20Bet Esport Review
20BET is an extensive sports betting platform including live betting, eSports, casino and live casino offers. There are far more than 1,500 betting offers to be found here every day, which created a certain curiosity for more right at the beginning of my 20BET test, even for me as an old sports betting bunny. Everything runs under a license in Curaçao and with obviously transparent, serious conditions – they even give tips for successful sports betting as well as concrete indications of probable winners of individual games. So far, so good – whether this positive first impression has been confirmed by a closer look, you can read here in the report about my 20BET experience!

- Hardly any deals for stock players
This is how good the betting offer of 20bet is
In terms of sports, as with almost all betting providers, soccer dominates at 20bet sports betting. This does not surprise us in our 20bet test. In total, more than 20 sports are available. In comparison to the betting offer, however, we were able to determine major differences in pre-match betting and live betting compared to the competition. Because in our test, we could find up to 133 leagues in the program of 20bet. Also with a correspondingly large betting depth, depending on the event. From small competitions to the Premier League.
In addition, you are of course also offered other sports such as tennis, table tennis, basketball, ice hockey and more. On the other hand, we missed particularly exotic sports at 20bet. Apart from water polo or rugby, the betting offer corresponds to the standard.
However, if you are interested in the increasingly popular e sports, you are in good hands at 20bet sports betting. You can find betting offers for FIFA, StarCraft, Dota 2, League of Legends or Counter Strike, among others.
eSports & other special bets
20BET does not offer an extra section for eSports. However, you can bet on various categories and events from this segment. During my 20BET experience, I was able to choose Dota 2, League of Legends or FIFA, among others, in the main sports menu.
Virtual sports are not on offer. Special, TV or political bets I could not make out either. After a brief inquiry with support, I was told that a special section was being planned, but that virtual sports would probably not follow for the time being.
Live betting in absolute perfection
After the pre-match offer of 20bet sports betting was already examined in more detail, a look at the live betting should not be missing. You can look forward to a variety of betting markets in this area at 20bet. In addition to the supreme discipline of soccer, which is presented with up to 80 live games, there are sometimes up to 50 other live events that you can look forward to at peak times. Live bets on e Sports are also possible.
Another positive aspect of 20bet's live betting is that you don't have to be an experienced bettor to get your money's worth. Everything is clearly presented. After clicking on the desired event, the betting markets are displayed and you can follow everything in real time via a live ticker and a live center with a virtual playing field. In our 20bet test report, there was no offer to be found, but it is quite possible that there will also be a special 20bet bonus for live betting.
20Bet: Welcome bonus – 100 percent up to €/$100
The 20BET bonus offers new customers an additional cash injection of up to €/$100 with a bonus value of 100 percent on the first deposit. This means that when you load your account for the first time, you get exactly the sum of the deposit (100 percent) as a bonus on top. However, you will not get more than €/$100 and you have to deposit at least €/$10 to receive bonus money.
You may not use any of the accepted cryptocurrencies for this.
As already mentioned above, you can decide which bonus you want to use right at the beginning of the registration process. However, you can also make the choice directly before the first account load. Click on “Sports” in the checkout area directly above the payment methods and deposit. No bonus code is required.
As far as the bonus conditions are concerned, I was once again positively surprised in my 20BET experience with regard to transparency. I know this from Curacao bookies quite differently. A click on “Terms and Conditions” in the info area of the deal under “Promotions” provides a broad overview.
You have to wager five times the amount of your deposit to play through the bonus. A good minimum odds of 1.50 applies.
Multiple bets must have odds of at least 1.70 and three selections. Only settled bets count towards the turnover requirements. That's all good news. Even more, you have a maximum of 14 days to fulfill the requirements, which should be more than enough time. That's it by and large – no hidden pitfalls or highly complex paragraphs. You get a solid bonus with fair, clear terms and conditions.
20Bet Usability & website
Usability is an important indication of how much value the provider places on the satisfaction of its bettors. After all, betting should be quick and uncomplicated, right? The 20Bet Sports experience with the website design is positive:
- clear menu structure
- appealing colors
- good readability
- fast loading times
From our point of view, there is nothing that spoils the betting fun. Searching for individual sports is also very easy, as there is an extra input mask for this on the left. In addition, current matches or the betting offers with the best odds are presented directly in the upper area of the website.
No app necessary
Those who want to turn their smartphone and/or tablet into a mobile betting slip do not need a 20Bet Sports app for this. Instead, the mobile browser is used to call up the website and serves its purpose quite well. Even on the smaller display, the betting offers are easily recognizable and the bets can be placed in no time with a few tips on the display.
20Bet Payment methods
In terms of payment methods, 20bet is innovative in our opinion. Even if the offer seems quite clear at first glance, you can even find various cryptocurrency payment methods on the list. So it's not just about euros. By the way, you can also switch to dollars. We have summarized below which options you have for depositing money into your 20bet betting account and what you need to keep in mind.
Credit Cards (VISA, MasterCard, Diners Club)
The deposit time can be up to 24 hours via VISA MasterCard. So if you want to place your first sports bets quickly, this payment method is not recommended. In the 20bet test we could not find any fee on payments with VISA Mastercard. In terms of limits, you can expect between €/$10 and €/$100,000 with VISA Mastercard.
Cryptocurrency (Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum).
Here, too, the deposit duration can be up to 24 hours under certain circumstances. There is no fee for payments. Limits range from 20 euros to €/$1,000,000, based on the current exchange rate. Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Litcoin, Ethereum and Co. are a special feature as a deposit at 20bet .
E-wallets (Skrill, Neteller and Co.).
The deposit amount is credited in real time at 20bet, in rare cases it can take up to 15 minutes. Perfect when it comes to the fast submission of sports bets. Further pleasing, there is no fee. Limits are 10 euros to 100,000 euros, according to the website. Note that deposits with Skrill / Neteller do not trigger a bonus at 20bet sports betting.
Bank Transfer (EcoPayz, Perfect Money)
The classic bank transfer may well take a few business days and is subject to fees at 20bet. Online transfers are free of charge and usually booked within 24 hours, limits up to 100,000 euros.
Unfortunately, both PayPal and Klarna are missing from the range of payment methods. This is a small minus point. Before the first payout, the account must first be verified. This is standard for all reputable betting providers.
A brief check of the customer service
Basically, you will rarely have to use the support or customer service of 20bet.com. All features at 20bet sports betting are designed to be self-explanatory and the FAQ section answers the majority of all questions in good English, which has only a few errors. Nevertheless, there are definitely moments when the customer support is in demand and 20bet offers various options for this.
You can reach the customer service staff by email as well as via a contact form 24 7. The answer should be given by the support within 24 hours. However, according to experience, you can expect a faster response. If you do not want to wait, or if it is an urgent matter, you can also contact the customer service via Live Chat. You can reach the customer support via messenger around the clock and 7 days a week. There you can ask questions about 20bet sports betting and the casino area.
Is 20Bet ledgit?
20BET has a license in Curaçao. Such bookies do not always have the best reputation, but – as is often the case in life – you cannot lump everything or everyone together.
The licensing authority in Curaçao does have standards that come close to those of European institutions. However, they do not pay as much attention to details, such as player protection. However, cheaters are not licensed under any circumstances!
Unfortunately, there is also no area at 20BET to quickly set limits. Self-exclusion can only be done via the support.
The 20Bet Sports test was a lot of fun, because the bookmaker impressed in many areas. Especially the huge betting offer, the service, the usability, the additional services or the bonus opportunities speak for themselves. However, we also have to be critical and have potential for improvement in the bonus for new customers. The handling is a bit more complex compared to other bookmakers and that's why there is the only point deduction in the test. Nevertheless, it is of course possible to secure the bonus up to €/€ 100 with some tricks and clever procedures. How exactly this can work, we have summarized in other guides with our experiences and tips.
