The Internet made betting much more accessible. Now you can easily place your wagers online, provided it’s legal to do so where you live. But the widespread use of smartphones made online betting even easier to use. These days, you can access the betting platform from anywhere and anytime. So it’s not a surprise that the majority of reliable bookmakers offer mobile applications.
Up To 15.000 KES
And 22Bet is no exception. This international platform has applications for iOS and Android. And in this review, we will cover how to operate those programs if you’re a Kenyan user. We will provide detailed guides, describe the differences between the apps and mobile websites, and answer the most common questions. Enjoy the read.
Supported Devices and Operating Systems
As we’ve already mentioned, you are able to use the 22Bet app on iOS and Android devices. The system requirements for both versions are quite flexible, making it possible to install the program on nearly any device released during the last few years, including budget ones.
How to Install the 22Bet Mobile App for Android
Android is the most actively used mobile operating system across the world, so it isn’t surprising to see 22Bet offering the app. Let’s see what you need to know about it.
Android System Requirements
It’s not difficult to meet the requirements. There’s a high chance that your Android device will run the application without any issues. The oldest operating system that can run the app is Android 4.0. It was released over a decade ago, so the system on your device is likely much newer. The 22Bet APK file takes around 55 MB, which most modern smartphones manage with ease.
Downloading and Installing the App: A Guide
You wouldn’t find the application on Google Play. So, if you want to install the program on your device, follow the steps below.
How to Install the 22Bet Mobile App for iOS
22Bet features an app designed for iOS devices. This actually makes it stand out since not all competitors have iPhone applications. Although, this is getting more common among international bookmakers: a group to which 22Bet belongs.
iOS System Requirements
Similarly to Android, the system requirements for the latest version of the application are relatively low. Your iPhone has to run iOS 12 or newer. This system was released almost five years ago, so the majority of new iPhones have a more modern version installed. The only caveat is the disc space: the app takes a whopping 450 MB, which is quite large by bookmaking app standards. But it’s not surprising since the program has a nice UI and a large set of features.
The Downloading and Installation Process: a Guide
You can find the iOS version on the App Store. This is usually the only way to download the programs for this system. Let’s check the steps you must take to install the application on your iPhone.
Both versions of the app are packed with features. The overall functionality is on par with what you can find on the desktop version. In some cases, it’s even better since the UI is more user-friendly, and accessing some of the features can be done more quickly. Now, let’s check the functions out.
Usability, Responsiveness, and UI
The app is easy to navigate and looks nice. The overall UI is superior to the desktop version. The button’s locations and overall navigation are very accessible. The latest versions of the apps are quick, responsive, load fast, and have smooth animations.
Betting in the App
You can place your wagers in the application with ease. The steps essentially would be the same as if you’d use the desktop version, but let’s check them out:
Account Registration in the App
Create an account in the app just by following these steps; the process shouldn’t take more than a couple of minutes:
Alternatively, you can sign up by tapping the “Social Networks and Messengers” tab. This will make the process even quicker.
Special Bonuses for Mobile Users
So far, no bonuses or free bets are specific to the apps. On the other hand, you have full access to regular promotions on the platform. Those include:
- A welcome offer.
- A casino first deposit bonus.
- The cashback bonus.
- Accumulator of the day.
Depositing and Withdrawing in the App
Using the application and mobile website to move your funds is very convenient. The working options are the same as for the desktop version: M-Pesa and Airtel Money. It might not be the biggest list of deposit and withdrawal options, but it includes widely used services in the country.
Customer Care Service in the App
You are also given the opportunity to access the platform’s customer support from the application. The options are limited, to begin with, but you can contact the live chat. Of course, nothing prevents you from sending an email either, but you are able to do this outside the application without any issue.
22Bet Mobile Version
The website offers a mobile version. It can become an excellent fit for smartphone users who can’t or won’t download the application for one reason or another, for example, if they don’t want to bloat their phone with various apps or if they don’t have enough space available. Both these points are valid since the iOS version takes almost 500 MB. The Android one is “lighter,” but it still takes enough space to bother some users. Either way, the mobile website has many features and provides the same functions as the apps.
The PC App
So far, there doesn’t seem to be a desktop application. If you’re accessing the website from a PC, you should simply use the official website. It’s a normal practice: dedicated desktop apps are rare among betting platforms.
The Lite Version
So far, it doesn’t seem that the mobile website of the bookmaker offers the “Lite” version. It’s a bit unfortunate but not a big problem since both the apps and the smartphone-optimized website don’t require many resources to run.
This is clear: 22Bet apps are well-designed, full of features, and easy to navigate. We wouldn’t expect less from this established international platform. The mobile website is also great, with the same UI and set of functions as the apps provide. It is a nice alternative for users who don’t want to install the application.

Booking the games on the mobile app is as easy as in the desktop version. The steps are similar to the ones needed for placing, but there’s a difference in the last stage:
- Select the sport.
- Find the event.
- Tap the odds.
- Load everything onto the bet slip.
- Instead of placing the bet, tap the “Book a Bet” button.
