This Bet9ja review will give an overview of Bet9ja’s welcome offer, sports betting markets, odds, live features, payment options, and many more. The table below illustrates how the operator has scored against a total of seven critical areas that can distinguish a competent bookmaker from one that does not provide quality and value to players’ online sports betting experiences.
|Bet9ja Review||Our rating|
100% deposit bonus up to NGN 100,000
Welcome Bonuses – 5
The first section of this Bet9ja review goes through the various welcome bonuses currently available. To begin with, there is the welcome bonus that loads new players’ accounts with a 100% deposit bonus up to 100,000 Naira (T&Cs apply). To be eligible for the offer, you need to use the Bet9ja promo code and deposit, at least, NGN 100, and stake the full worth of the deposit on sports bets with, at least, 3.00 odds. Wagering requirements also apply to be able to withdraw your bonus winnings (10x the deposit sum).
Additionally when making your first deposit, you will receive 2 free bets on the Bet9ja League. These will be awarded upon your 1st deposit and the value of the freebet is 50 NGN. Again, you have to deposit a minimum of 100 Naira, and wager min. 10x on any sports market with odds 3.00 or greater.
This Bet9ja review could not leave out the Bet9ja-exclusive Super9ja section whose bonus enables players with a verified mobile phone number to win NGN 10 million! The only thing they need to do is to select six correct winning scores. An extra one or two winning scores can also get you a small jackpot too (T&Cs apply). Plus, there are some 20 consolidation prizes every week to claim.
Betting Markets / Available sports – 4
The bookmaker focuses heavily on football, allowing players to lay bets on both international and domestic football matches with a few clicks (or taps if using the mobile platforms). Football lines include competitions and leagues from all over the world, such as CAF, UEFA, CONCACAF, CONMEBOL, and AFC. With a wide range of in-play betting options and traditional half-time/full-time bets, those loving the particular sport will be spoilt for choice for sure.
Saturdays carry a special weight for Bet9ja bettors are they offer more than 10,000 bets, related to football and a plethora of other sports (around 20 different sports markets), ranging from alpine tennis and cricket to MMA, rugby, Antepost soccer futsal, horse racing, and motorsports, to name a few. Finally, special bets are also available, such as Politics and Music-related.
Bet9ja’s Odds – 4
The bookmaker’s betting coverage is satisfactory, with 1000s of different football bets every day, ranging from first goalscorer and under/over to outright match winners. And, for the majority of markets provided at the operator’s site, this Bet9ja reviews concludes that the odds are more than competitive, especially the live betting ones. For instance, in the Dynamo Kiev vs. Juventus match the odds are 2.33 for Dynamo to win Juventus. Betting NGN100 would, therefore, get you NGN233.
Rugby and ice hockey, in particular, present great opportunities for improved winnings, with betting margins set at 114% on average. Europa League and the Championship also enjoy good odds, between 108-109%, which is in line with the industry average. Nevertheless, we can’t overlook that fact that for the English Premier League and other major sports markets the odds are not on par with punters’ expectations, sitting between 104-105%.
Streaming and Live Betting on Bet9ja – 3
Live betting performs quite well too, with a wealth of markets available daily and many opportunities to bet on sports such as tennis and football becoming available regularly. AS for the in-play section, it makes viewing the long list of current live betting markets a walk in the park. Besides in-play betting, though, players can also find a wide spectrum of virtual betting markets, featuring greyhounds, horse racing, tennis and, of course, football. Finally, from a form guides and live scores to useful stats, punters have a lot of tools to enjoy excellent live betting.
Unfortunately, live streaming is not an option at Bet9ja.
Bet9ja Mobile App – 4
The bookmaker has made sure its customers are provided with pleasing sports betting even when on the go. For that reason, they will find a dedicated app for Android users (4.1 and above) and a fully-functional mobile site. Unfortunately, there is no app for Windows or iOS operating systems. However, the mobile platform reflects everything the desktop version provides, including live streaming, cash out, and special odds. Punters can also enjoy an appealing interface and an easy-to-navigate interface with handy menus that make sports betting a breeze.
Bet9ja Payment Options – 3
This part of the Bet9ja review assesses the available funding methods. The operator provides the following deposit options:
- Quickteller online
- Instant Bank Deposits
- GTBank (both mobile and online transfers)
- Paycom Online Transfer
- Debit Card (WebPay)
- Skye Mobile Deposit
The minimum deposit amount is set at NGN100 while the maximum sum players can deposit ranges between NGN 10,000 (with WebPay), NGN 100,000 (Paycom), NGN500,000 (Skye), and NGN 9,999,999 (GTBank). Let’s also note that ATM and Quickteller deposit limits are card-dependent.
As for withdrawals, the landscape is significantly different as the bookmaker only allows Bank Transfers, which is a big let down for the majority of players that use alternative funding options. What may somehow compensates the lack of more withdraw methods is the fast withdrawal processing times (within 24 hours).
Customer Care – 3
The next area this Bet9ja review analyses the customer service department, which appears to not be available on a 24/7 basis. In detail, players can get in touch with a Bet9ja agent via:
- Telephone (operating hours between 8am and 9pm).
- Email (sc@myBet9ja.com), with an average response time around 24 hours.
- Twitter (@Bet9jaHelp)
- Traditional mail
Clearly, the Live Chat function is missing, as are options to contact the customer support staff around the clock. Replies are provided in a timely manner, though.
Our Verdict – 3.7/5
As this Bet9ja review draws to close, it seems that Nigeria players have lots to benefit from registering with Bet9ja. Starting with the generous welcome bonus that can load players’ accounts with up to 100,000 Naira to start betting and moving to the large plethora of betting markets (in-play and pre-match) offering competitive odds, especially football and tennis, Bet9ja is interesting, to say the least.
Other than that, the offers don’t stop with the welcome offer as punters can claim 100 million Naira with the Super9ja promo. On the other hand, the lack of the live chat function and the limited withdraw options can raise some eyebrows. Overall, though, Bet9ja is definitely worth trying.
