Company Details

The 21Bet bookmaker and casino brand are owned by a company of the same name – 21Bet. The website is operated by FSB Technology Ltd, a company based in the UK which is licenced by the UK Gambling Commission to offer online betting and casino gaming services to UK residents.

Bonuses and Promotions

The bonuses and promotions offer at 21Bet is truly astonishing. There are more than 10 active promotions.

Many bookmakers offer a welcome bonus, but 21Bet has a Welcome Bonus offer that lasts forever. That doesn’t mean only that new punters will always have access to this offer, but that all punters will be able to claim the bonus more than ones. Each punter can win a bonus worth £10 every week. All it takes is to place at least 5 bets with a £10 stake at evens (2.00) or higher odds during one week and the bonus is yours. Only punters who deposited using their credit or debit card can claim this bonus.

Football fans can claim an additional £10 bonus during every week of August and September. In order to qualify for this free bonus offer you need to place at least 10 bets worth £10 each on football during the mentioned two months, at evens or greater odds. If you’re claiming the Forever Welcome Bonus offer, you can’t claim this Football Club bonus.

Football punters can also claim a number of other promotions. With the Score Draw Money Back offer you can get your stake of up to £25 back if the match you wagered on ends in a draw. The bonus is valid for all wagers placed on the ‘first player to score’ and ‘correct score’ markets on matches of the EPL, the Championship, Spanish La Liga and UEFA Champions and Europa leagues. The bonus amount is paid out as a free bet and can be used in the following 7 days.

There’s another football promotion for all bets that include 3 or more selections on matches of the same five competitions mentioned above at odds of at least 1/2. The bonus is 21% and it is paid out if all teams that you’ve backed to win manage to win after leading at half time. The maximum bonus winnings is £50.

Other bonuses include the £10 refer a friend bonus, available to all punters who manage to convince a friend to join 21Bet and make a deposit, and the money back bonus offer for all horse races that are broadcast on ITV. Moreover, horse race punters are also guaranteed that they will get the best odds on all UK and Irish races available for betting at 21Bet. The 21 Club allows all loyal punters to enjoy a range of perks and benefits.

Sports Markets and Odds Value

The most popular sports are presented on a horizontal menu on the main page if you click on ‘All Sports’ the full range of available sports will be presented. There are over 20 available sports. Not more than what most operators offer, but not too few either.

Football, horse racing, greyhounds, snooker, tennis and F1 are featured, but also handball, eSports, GAA football and more. There are selections offered at enhanced odds and these can be found in the ‘Specials’ category. If you wish to bet on football, you will be able to place wagers on all major competitions and national leagues, but also lower divisions, and even U21 and U19 competitions.

All standard football betting markets are available, you can bet on the match winner, on the number of goals (over/under), whether or not both teams are going to score, as well as correct score, half time correct score and more. Compared to some other major operators, 21Bet does offer fewer markets, but the offer is still pretty decent. The odds are quite competitive and here 21Bet ranks fairly well, despite the fact that it is still a relatively new bookmaker.

Adding a selection to your bet slip is done by clicking on the odds. If there are multiple selections and they are compatible (i.e. could be included in a bet together), you can choose the types of bets that you wish to place. In addition to single bets on each selection, you can also place a range of multiple bets. If a market has a red £ sign, that means that cash out is available for selections of that market.

Banking Options

Visa and MasterCard (including Electron, Maestro and other sub-varieties) are accepted, but there are no other available payment methods.
