SportyBet is a part of the new gambling generation in Nigeria, as well as a brand new member of the local sport betting market, but, though, has also some decent experience in the field with its practice in Kenya and Tanzania. This bookmaker’s ambassador is Nwankwo Kanu, which fact helps the bookie’s popularity growth in Nigeria.
Since its first day when the betting company started working in Nigeria, it has operated with an official license provided by Lagos State Lotteries Board. This fact, on the other side, shows the gambling house’s earnest approach to our market and desire to turn into one of the leaders, but not a classical betting short-lived thing. Up to now SportyBet has being doing quite well in these missions as the customers on the platform have become more and more, while the bookie, itself, has been progressing in developing a vast service portfolio.
Of course, the betting house has still lots of spheres to work more and harder and in this review we would like to share with you where SportyBet has reached a top level, as well as where it needs more jobs to be done.
Here is, though, for a start, the chart with the top 4 reasons that make this bookmaker classify in the Top 3 bookies in Nigeria:
- The fastest profit payroll speed (it takes only 5 seconds per payment)
- Mobile Android application with notifications per each won bet
- Odds, which in many cases appear to be the best on the market
- The only bookie in Nigeria that offers the option for a partial cash out alongside with the classical full cash out service
SportyBet has a mobile app for Android, which is, definitely one of the most important facts to appreciate it as most of Nigerians nowadays use this mobile operating system. The biggest bookmakers, though, also offer software products for mobile betting via an Apple device, which is not available here.
Naturally, for the rest mobile phones that run on different systems, there’s an option for betting via the browser website version. We, should, though, agree that the experience is completely different rather than using a fast and simple app.
We should mark that the app might not work on older Android devices and operating systems, but if your mobile phone has been released on the market within the last 6-7 years, we are confident to say that you can use SportyBet mobile appl.

- 1. Open SportyBet Nigeria via your mobile device
- 2. Press on Free Download button, which is located in the sidebar that invites you to download the application (just take at the top side of the page and you will see it)

SportyBet official website
SportyBet platform is designed in a way to satisfy mostly mobile audience’s needs, but it doesn’t mean that you will not have any chances to place bets via a desktop device. On the contrary – the specially tailored website version for computers is as professional as the rest of SportyBet platforms versions. The betting company does not, doubtlessly, suffer from lack of good computer specialists in its team and the company’s development team has done fantastic job by giving the customers an easy and convenient to be used pack of different platforms for different devices.
Contacts (customer support service)
This gambling operator provides everything necessary to people not to feel abandoned by the customer support team at all. We have, for instance, found a specially tailored section FAQ, where 14 of the most important questions that are often asked by customers, are answered. In case of a more specific or complex question, as well as in case of some issues during your betting activity, you can also choose any of the communication methods to reach SportyBet’s customer representatives:

If you have never opened an account in a betting house, you might think that it’s a very difficult task to perform, but frankly, it’s one of the easiest things you can do ever.
The registration is free of charge and does not require any special skills. It’s a must, though, to have an active mobile phone number as the account in this website should be confirmed via a mobile phone (the gambling company sends you a code you should enter in a special field in the website).
When you open the registration form, you should do only 3 simple things – type your phone number, choose a password to login and press on the button called Create Account.
SportyBet has a bit weird reward program devoted to its new customers, but one way or another, it does not damage anyone’s interests, but on the contrary, provides almost similar bonus amount. What is non-standard is the way the bonus works.
Like in many other bookies, you will get a free bet here, too. The bet amount varies depending on your first deposit amount. The difference is that you can use the free bet in a strictly determined way. There’s one table that explains this way and it’s also dependent on your deposit amount.
You can check out the details in the page called Promotions, but now we would like to give you one simple example to get it how the system works.
Let’s imagine you have initially deposited 300 NGN and you have the right to receive the same amount in a form of a free bet. This is how you can use the bet:
- Placing two free bets. Each of them is at an amount of 50 NGN. You should place them within the first, respectively the second day after the deposit. You cannot place two bets in a day.
- Two free bets at an amount of 50 NGN per bet. The first bet should be placed on the fourth day after the deposit was made, while the second bet – on the sixth day.
In Promotions page you can also check out if currently there’s another special offer the betting company has. Speaking of which, SportyBet often releases new short-term promotional campaigns that are usually devoted to some special occasion like Christmas, matches from the national Nigerian football league and many more.
Available payment methods in SportyBet Nigeria
You can make a deposit or order a withdrawal at a minimum amount of 100 NGN in SportyBet via these payment methods:
Odds and sport betting
The odds in this bookmaker are quite great considering the betting Nigerian standards, but the problem is that they are not available for lots of sport disciplines. In this bookie we usually invest our deposited money in football, basketball, tennis, ice hockey, volleyball, darts and since a while, in cricket events. However, as a whole the variety of matches, sport types and leagues is something the company’s team is supposed to consider and work more in order to reach top world level. The good news, though, is that in the available sport disciplines most of the events are covered. The market coverage is always quite good.
This Nigerian gambling website has also a Jackpot game, but it’s not on a regular basis. Currently, at the moment we are writing this review we see the game hasn’t been available for two weeks, while in some other betting platforms we can usually participate in many new jackpot games within a day.
By having in mind that this bookie hasn’t released any other gambling services, excluding virtual sports, we somehow cannot rate it highly (especially regarding the variety in the platform). However, what we have seen in this betting house is that it comes with many pros that are not available even in some of those competitors that are more experienced. Moreover, there are fields SportyBet leaves these competitors behind.
