Founded in 2011, NairaBET was Nigeria’s first ever 100% locally-focused and hosted online sportsbook. The widest choice of competitive odds and sports betting lines from Nigeria and abroad is the secret of its ongoing success and growth. That and the fact it only accepts deposits, wagers and withdrawals in Nigerian Naira. This Nigerian bookmaker is licensed and regulated by the Lagos State Lotteries Board.

NairaBET Sportsbook Overview

NairaBET was founded by Akin Alabi, a well-known Nigerian entrepreneur, author, philanthropist, motivational speaker and politician. After being exposed to online gambling on a visit to the UK, he began writing ebooks instructing Nigerians on how to gamble online. Until then there were no 100% Nigerian sports betting websites, and recognising this, Alabi launched the nation’s first - NairaBET.

Today NairaBET is not only the largest and most popular internet sportsbooks in Nigeria, but one that rivals even the busiest offshore-owned and operated online bookmakers. Thanks to NairaBET, no longer is it necessary for Nigerians to seek out Nigerian-friendly betting sites, i.e. online sportsbooks that sign up Nigerian betting fans, but don’t typically offer the Naira as one of their accepted currencies.

NairaBet is 100% for Nigerians, which is reflected in its vast selection of betting lines lead by football (soccer). Because football is the most popular sport in Nigeria, it’s football betting lines that take pride of place on the sportsbook’s homepage. At time of writing, NairaBET offered 239 individual football lines to bet on from teams, leagues and nations across the globe. If there is football action, NairaBET has it.

Football aside, NairaBET has betting lines on sports like basketball, cricket and table tennis, and just about everything in-between. Like all premier online sports betting sites these days, NairaBET offers In-Play betting so you can bet on games, matches and events while they’re underway. Fast and efficient 24/7 customer service plus safe and trusted banking methods adds to NairaBET’s impressive appeal.

NairaBET Main Features

The biggest and most important feature of NairaBET is that it’s a 100% Nigerian-focused online sports betting site, which means it’s geared specially for Nigerians and their betting tastes. Add to that the sportsbook processes all bets in Naira, which means if you live in Nigeria you don’t have to rely on a calculator or a currency converter to work out how much you’re depositing, wagering or withdrawing.

Another main feature of NairaBET is how easy and fast its website is to navigate. In other words, its site is laid out in such a way that even the most inexperienced online betting fans will find it easy to sign up for an account, make safe and secure deposits, and get betting in no time at all. Online bookmakers are about convenience, so the easier and faster a site is to navigate, the more popular and frequented it is.

In addition, NairaBET caters to casino fans with its online casino game facility where you’ll find a host of lucrative and exciting games including online slots, progressives, table games, video poker, sports poker and more. Best of all, you can bet on sports or play casino games using the same NairaBET username and password and no matter if you access the website on a PC, laptop or your smart phone or tablet.

NairaBET for Mobile Devices

These days mobile gaming is almost as prevalent as traditional online betting amongst sports betting fans, which is why NairaBET is 100% mobile-friendly. Long gone are the days when you had no choice but to make all of your virtual bets on a desktop PC, notebook or laptop, since now pretty much all late model smart phones or devices can be used to create a ‘mobile virtual bookmaker in your pocket.’

In fact, Nigeria has one of the most sophisticated cell phone and internet infrastructures in Africa, which makes it the ideal setting for a high traffic online sportsbook like NairaBET. All you need to ‘bet on the go’ is a smart device, a connection to the internet via 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi or LTE, an account with NairaBET and the means to deposit and withdraw funds. You must also be 18 or older as per Nigerian gambling laws.

NairaBET is a multi-operating system platform which means you can sign up, make deposits and bet no matter what brand of smart phone or tablet you have, such as a Samsung, Huawei, Apple or Nokia to name a few, or what operating system you’re using, such as Android, Windows or iOS. The site has been designed to accommodate all devices which is another reason NairaBET is so highly favoured in Nigeria.

Sports Betting Bonuses at NairaBET

To reward players, NairaBET has a number of attractive sports betting bonuses and promotions such as:

  • NairaBET Goalless Draw Money Back: If you lay a single pre-match bet on 1 X 2 on any English Premier League match and the game ends in a goalless draw (0-0), NairaBET will refund your original bet in full.
  • One Game Cut Your Ticket Promotion: If your multi-game ticket is ruined by only one wrong result, NairaBET will pay you 10% of your projected winnings up to a maximum of N100,000 (excluding the game that ruined and any bonuses).
  • 100% Bonus on Accumulator Bet: NairaBET will increase its bonuses to you the more bets you add to your betting slip.
  • Double Your Odds on Lucky 15, 31 & 63: Whenever you have only one winner (i.e. you only win one line of all your bets) NairaBET will automatically double the odds of that winner so that you win more. (The only catch is that your stake on that line will be removed).
