Who Owns 22bet? A Look At The CEO, Licence and Activities

The website is operated by TechSolutions Group N.V (Abraham Mendez Chumaceiro Boulevard 50, Curaçao) and owned by Marikit Holdings Ltd Casinos (Chrysanthou Mylona, 12, Harmonia building, 1st floor, Flat/Office 15, 3030, Limassol, Cyprus).

According to reports, Marikit Holdings Ltd was incorporated in Cyprus on January 14, 2016.
About the company not much is known – only that it owns various casinos and bookmakers operated by different companies.

Casinos and betting sites of the company:

  • ●  (Casino Z)
  • ●  1xSlots (casino)
  • ●  22betting (sportsbook)
  • ●  Megapari (sportsbook)
  • ●  TheBetwinner (sportsbook)
  • ●  DoubleBet (sportsbook)Who is the Chief Executive Officer of Marikit Holdings Ltd?There is no public knowledge of the actual CEO (or board of directors, if there is one) of the company. There are sources (such as opencorporates.com) that name ΡΑΜΙΝΤΑ ΚΥΡΙΑΚΙΔΟΥ as CEO, but it is not certain that these sources can be trusted, and the person in question seems to be nothing more than an act.

    Does the owner of 22Bet sponsor anyone?

    There is no information about such events from Marikit Holdings Ltd, but the betting site sponsored a Ronaldinho and Friends VS Adler All-Stars charity match on November 17, 2018.

    But there is no information. What does all this mean?

    Most of all, this means Marikit Holdings Ltd is a very private company with little transparency. In the absence of information, it is up to the user to decide whether to trust the company or not. In order to ease the question of trust, we will also provide the available information on the license, as this is the only document that tells us more about the bookmaker.

Owner’s Licence

Antillephone License No. 8048/JAZ issued on November 16, 2018 and valid until November 28, 2023 is held by 22bet.

What does it mean for players?

Antillephone NV No. 8048/JAZ is one of the four Master licenses issued by the Minister of Justice on Curacao. Curacao’s licenses have quite a tarnished reputation, but Antillephone NV No. 8048/JAZ is rumored to actually be improving standards of gambling experience. They also require satisfactory proof that the company has the capability of acting as a casino or sportsbook, as well as that its users are treated fairly. Testing of the software that the operator is supposedly going to run on their website, as well as evaluation of the owner’s credibility, is required as proof.

Licenced operators must display their license seal on their website so you can check the validity of the licence yourself. You can check the validity of the license by clicking on the seal.

When operating under Curacao regulations, whether you have a Master licence or not, there is only so much you can do. Antillephone notes in a footnote on their website: “Antillephone should only be contacted by players if they believe an Operator is violating their license. All disputes with an Operator about a payout, a blocked account, a delay, broken features, etc., should be handled directly with the Operator. There are a number of independent bodies you can contact, which should be listed on the Operator’s website.”

Essentially, this means that players can contact the regulator, but there is no guarantee that they will achieve anything. However, it won’t hurt to try, so if you have a particular complaint that the operator won’t resolve, you can approach the regulator. In some cases, operators were in the wrong and lost their licenses.


There isn’t much to conclude, to be honest. 22bet has little information about its owner, but based on the information available, it seems the company is part of a larger company that manages casinos and sportsbooks. At least the site’s license has some credibility behind it.

Our experience is the only one we have. Alternatively, you can always try registering on the betting site (see our step-by-step guide on how to register) and build your own levels of trust.
