You do not need to verify your 22bet account until such necessity arises. Our theory, backed by personal experience, is that the betting site's policy has some internal flags – most likely connected to your actions/withdrawal amounts – that lead to them asking for verification. If your goal is to withdraw insignificant amounts, these flags may not apply to you.
However, when necessary, they will contact you (and leave a notification on their website) with a request to provide some – or all – of the following verification documents:
- A coloured picture of valid ID;
- Proof of deposit (depends on deposit method)
The process is mostly done for two reasons:
- Age verification – to verify if the account holder is of legal age stated in the gambling laws of the user’s country;
- Account verification – to prove that the person who registered the account, paid for it, used it and now tries to withdraw money from it is one and the same.
Age or account verification process on 22bet may take up to 72 hours.
When we asked bookmaker's customer services about ways to initiate the first contact to verify the account, they did not provide us with any directions and were adamant in their “you will be contacted in case of necessity” position. This might mean that the sportsbook wants to be sure that you are who you say you are at that exact point of the withdrawal process.
So, to verify your account, you have to simply use the website up to the point when you will be contacted by their services with instructions on how to proceed.
As far as we know, there is no such page available. Personal profile and account settings sections do not provide a possibility to upload needed documents or to preemptively verify your account.
You have an option to upload files at the live chat on 22bet, but you won’t be able to complete the age or account verification process there, as their support will refer you back to the specialists.
Aside from realistically unsolvable problems (such as an outright refusal to accept your documents), you might find yourself in a situation where 22bet will request pictures of specific quality/size/angle or specific proof of your identity/address (utility bill, for example). These possible requirements are written into their policy along with an ominous warning that they might request even more additional information (the clause does not specify to what extent), including notarized copies of documents.
