Some Information About Sports Betting in Nigeria

Below we are going to take a closer look at sports betting in Nigeria as a whole.

The Popularity of Online Sports Betting in Nigeria

In Nigeria, betting on sports is becoming just as much as a pastime as watching sports. To give you an idea as to just how many of us Nigerians love to bet, it is estimated that about 60 million of us bet on sports every single day – that equates to about 30% of our entire population. Furthermore, it is estimated that Nigerians spend the equivalent of $50 million every single day. Yeah, you read that correctly – $50 million every day. Pretty astonishing figures, if you ask us.

Football is the most popular sport in Nigeria. We just love to watch all types of football, whether it is local football or football from some of the biggest leagues in the world, we do not care. All that we care about is getting our football fix as well as our gambling fix. When there is no football on to watch and bet on, we have no issues turning our attention to other great sports such as basketball, tennis, baseball, and ice hockey.

More and more Nigerians have access to the Internet and mobile phones now, which means that more of us will be tempted to start gambling. Thanks to the rise of technology, placing a bet has become extremely simple. We can now bet wherever we happen to be, so long as we have a mobile phone and Internet access. All we have to do is get out our smartphones, log on to our sportsbook account, find something that interests us, add it to the betting slip, decide how much we want to stake, and then submit the bet. The whole thing can be done in a matter of minutes, no matter where you are.

Nowadays, most sportsbooks that you will come across will have a compatible mobile site that you can use to place bets on the go. However, more and more sportsbooks are now creating betting apps that customers can download. If you have an account with a bookmaker that has an app that you can download, then one of the best pieces of advice that we can give you is to download the app to your mobile.

Apps are much faster than your average mobile site and they use up a lot less data.

Betting Tips and Predictions

available sports
When you are placing bets, you obviously do so with the intention of winning some extra money. Some people will tell you that they bet just for fun, but they are lying if they tell you that they are not interested in winning money. We care about all of our readers and we want you to have the best gambling experience possible. Therefore, we provide you with bet prediction articles and betting tips to a range of different sports. If you heed our predictions, no matter what sport you are betting on, we guarantee that you will improve your chances of winning your bets.

Football Prediction

Football is the most popular sport in the world, and we, Nigerians, are huge football fans. We love nothing more than getting together with our friends and family members and watching a match (and placing a bet on it at the same time). Having a bet on a match that you are watching always helps to add to the excitement and tension. Before you go ahead and place your next football bet, then we highly recommend that you take the time to read our football prediction page. It will definitely be time well spent.

Basketball Prediction

Football is great to bet on, but if we were to bet only on football, then things could end up getting pretty boring, especially during the times when the major football leagues and competitions are taking a break. Another sport that many of us Nigerians love to bet on is basketball. We have writers who know an awful lot about basketball, so you should definitely read our basketball prediction page before you place another basketball bet. Doing so will improve your chances of raking in the cash.

Tennis Prediction

Are you a huge fan of tennis? If you answered yes to this question, then you are certainly not alone. There are plenty of your fellow Nigerians that are huge fans of tennis – they like nothing more than sitting down and watching big tennis competitions such as Wimbledon, French Open, Australian Open, and the US Open. If you love to bet on tennis (of course you do) as much as you like to watch it, then we highly recommend that you take a look at our tennis prediction page. You might think that you win a lot of your tennis bets now, but you will win even more if you heed the tennis advice that we provide when big competitions are on.

Ice Hockey Prediction

Nigerians love to follow fellow Nigerians who have become successful in a particular sport. We are always proud to see our fellow brothers and sisters doing well on the world’s sporting stage. In fact, we are so patriotic that we would support a fellow Nigerian if they were playing a game of chess. Therefore, it should come as no surprise to hear that there are many Nigerians who are passionate about ice hockey. This is because there have been some great Nigerian ice hockey players that have played in the National Hockey League.

For example, Rumun Ndur played for the New York Rangers, Buffalo Sabres, as well as the Atlanta Thrashers. He is now retired, but he was actually the first Nigerian-born NHL player. Another retired NHL player of Nigerian descent is Jarome Iginla. Over his ice hockey playing career, he played for the Calgary Flames, Pittsburgh Penguins, Boston Bruins, Colorado Avalanche, and the Los Angeles Kings.

If you happen to love to bet on ice hockey, then check out our ice hockey prediction before you go ahead and spend any more money. We are here to help you win even more of your bets. What’s not to like about that?

Baseball Prediction

Baseball is a popular sport in Nigeria, and its popularity is only going to keep on increasing. When the majority of people from countries where baseball is not that popular think of baseball, they are likely to think of a sport that is only played by Americans. However, there are many countries where baseball is popular, and America is not even ranked as the best country in the world – that accolade, according to the world rankings, goes to Japan. However, America, in the shape of Major League Baseball (MLB) has the best baseball league in the world. There are plenty of us who love to play, watch, and bet on baseball. If you fall into this category, then please do read our baseball prediction page before you go ahead and place another bet.

Nigerian Sports Betting Laws

faq

Betting on sports is legal in all of the 36 different states across Nigeria. However, in order to gamble, you must be 18 years or older. Therefore, when you register with an online sportsbook, you will be required to verify your identity so that betting restrictions are lifted. To verify your identity, you will be asked to send them a photograph of one of the following documents:

  • Passport.
  • ID card.
  • Driving license.

You might get annoyed with such measures, but you really should not as this is solid proof that the bookmaker is adhering to strict rules and regulations. In fact, you should be more concerned if a sportsbook does not have a verification process. We will not go into too much detail here as you can find all the information that you need while reading our sportsbook reviews.

What about security levels? Well, in order to be a legal online betting site, a company must hold a valid license. If you create an account with a bookmaker that holds a license from the likes of the UK Gambling Commission, the Malta Gaming Authority, or the Lagos State Lottery Board, then you can be 100% certain that the site that you are gambling at is 100% secure. These governing boards will not hand their licenses over until they are absolutely certain that the bookmaker has everything in order.

The bookmakers that you will find on this site are secure and reputable. They all have valid licenses from some of the most respected gambling boards in the world, meaning that they can certainly be trusted. If a betting site lets their standards slip, then they run the risk of having their license taken away. It is for this reason why the majority of bookies will always do their best to put their customers first. You can be certain that we will not recommend a bookie to you if we would not deposit our own money with them.

The Criminal Act Code is the organization that governs gambling laws in our country – the last time that they updated the gambling laws was back in 2004. These laws state that only games where some sort of skill is involved can be gambled upon, which means that casino games like roulette is strictly forbidden. However, it is legal to bet on most sports and you need a certain degree of skill to be successful when you are betting on sports. You should check with your own state to see what you can bet on and what you are not allowed to bet on.
