Naijabet started their operations back in 2016 and can be considered as a relatively new entrant to the African gambling industry. The betting services aim to cater for Nigerians and non-Nigerians across the world, although there some country restriction, namely South Sudan, Curacao, Kosovo and Sint Maarten. Naijabet is licensed and regulated by the Lagos State Lotteries Board (LSLB) and owned by Kreativ Integrated Concepts & Management Limited. This bookmakers hold great odds, coupled with fast withdrawals and efficient customer support to provide punters with an all-around enjoyable experience. Good NaijaBet bonus is also available upon joining.
Betting Markets & Odds Quality
Naijabet has a wide variety of sports to choose from – starting with the obvious big names such as football, basketball, tennis, etc. to more obscure and less known sports such as Netball, Waterpolo, Surfing and others. There is even the option to place a bet on politics, for example on the General Election in England. It is without a surprise, however, that football is by far the biggest sport on the platform, as evidenced by the number of events and available markets for football events. When compared to other international bookmakers, the odds at Naijabet seem more than adequate and have the staying power to attract more than occasional and recreational punters.

Website & App
The layout of the Desktop version is somewhat standardized and will seem almost intuitive for users. Such a design is intentional and aims at providing easy access for punters to their favorite sections of the site in the fastest and easiest way possible. Here the option to display odds in different form is available, with users having the option of Decimal, Malay, American or Hong Kong style. Pick whichever works best for you!
Naijabet also has a mobile version, albeit one that is on available for iOS users. Other than that it is a toned down version of the website, best used with mobile devises or tablets.
Live Betting & Live Streaming
The easy to navigate and use site paired with the aforementioned competitive odds naturally leads to a conclusion that Naijabet is a very popular option for live betting. Top events for the day can be accessed straight from the home page, while other in-play events can be found by clicking on the Live button. Cash out options are readily available, but the same cannot be said for live streaming. Which leaves Naijabet with a bit of a conundrum – excellent in-play service, with no live streaming is a recipe that can annoy and probably alienate some serious punters.
Naijabet Bonus & Promotions
This is an area where Naijabet bonus is most certainly lacking. Currently, the bookmaker has no running promotions. Moreover, there is no welcome bonus for new users, something which can turn away many a punter.

In conclusion there are a lot of reasons to use Naijabet – competitive odds, fast withdrawals with no charge, no charge on deposits, an efficient and user-friendly Desktop website and mobile app. The wide variety of sports and markets also makes for a strong case to lure serious punters. Obviously, the platform (and the app, respectfully) is aimed towards placing a bet rather quickly and withdrawing/depositing money fast and securely which is also a big plus for those who want to bet on the go. On the downside are the limited deposit/withdrawal option, no option for live streaming, no live chat with the support team, lack of bonuses and the app being unavailable to iOS users. Still, the positives outweigh the negatives as it is evident that Naijabet is probably one of the best and most frequently used Nigerian sportsbooks you will come across.
