Betting sites in Nigeria have virtually exploded, much like the Nigerian e-commerce boom, however, a bunch of Nigerians still think “Hey, if it’s not Bet Naija, then it’s no bet!”
Well Bet Naija may be among the most popular betting sites in Nigeria, but it doesn’t own the monopoly just yet.
Now allow me blow your mind:
Research by News Agency of Nigeria shows that about 60 million Nigerians spend almost N2 billion on betting sites in Nigeria….DAILY.
That’s a big ass figure on a daily basis!
Now while I don’t bet (not because of any religious beliefs but attributed more to the fact that I don’t like games of probability), I do plan to start my own betting website in a couple of years.
Why? Can you sit and watch over N30 billion a month in hard raw cash just catwalk up and down the country and turn a blind eye to it?
So for the fans and the followers of betting sites in Nigeria, I’ve compiled a list of other quite outstanding betting websites that you probably or probably don’t even know exist.
#1. Lionz Bet
These guys first setup shop on the Nigerian betting scene in 2016 and their USP according to their website promises that they’ll give you a 100% bonus on signup.
That means that if you credit your Lions Bet account with N100,000 on signup, they’ll double it to N200,000. I guess for it to make sense to you, you’d have to signup with something reasonable, right?
If you’re a Premier League regular, then you’ve probably seen ads from Betway pop up on your screen. That’s how I found out about them.
Founded in 2006, The Betway Group also operate brands like Betway Sportsbook, Betway Casino, Betway Vegas, Betway Bingo and Betway Poker and have international versions for Kenya, S.A and Ghana as well.
#3. Loving Bet
Probably one of the least known of the horde of betting sites in Nigeria comes these guys (also with the weirdest name if you notice).
Personally, I dislike the colour contrast of their website. I think it looks rather terrible (me and my bad mouth). What do you think?
#4. Winners Golden Bet (WGB)
WGB recently clocked 3 years old in Nigeria and last year also brought it’s share of publicity to them after PM News reported that they paid out €12,000 to a Nigerian who played a game with only N50 bucks.
The news of the payout, I’m guessing would obviously have cemented WGB’s stand as one of the most reputable betting sites in Nigeria that pay on time and without story.
As it turns out, a few Nairalanders seem to be vehemently of the opinion that NaijaPredict is in fact a scam site. I’d advise anyone thinking of patronizing them to probably save yourself some trouble and check out the tread on Nairaland then make up your mind.
Once again if you watch the EPL regularly, you would have seen advert boards on the pitch of several international betting companies, one prominent one is Bet365.
So the existence of a “Bet365Naija” tells us that these guys probably also have their tentacles spread towards Nigeria. And BTW, their site design has the most professional look I’ve seen on this list (and I would know because I design websites for people and businesses 😉).
