Nairabet is one of the biggest names in the Nigerian betting market. This bookmaker has been operating on the Internet since 2009, which makes it one of the oldest online operators in the country. This bookie works not only on the Web but also on the offline market via betting shops.

Theoretically, foreign players can play at this sportsbook but with one condition: they need to be in Nigeria. The name of Nairabet is equivalent to Dollarbet in the USA, as Naira is the national currency of Nigeria. It has to be said, that this company is owned by influential Nigerian politician Akin Alaby. Bookmaker is regulated by local commission NLRC (National Lottery Regulatory Commission) and is also the member of Association of bookmakers.

The website of Nairabet looks very different compared to the sites of European bookies. We can’t say it’s worse or better than EU-sites, it’s just different by its looks (visual content, huge font, strange design). The interesting part is that visitors can use the Old site or New site. The newer one has a more European look with fluid design and nice, contrast font. The structure of the sportsbook is typical: categories on the left, events on the center, betting slip on the right. You can use features like search, filters, betslip, search. The customer support works through three channels: LiveChat, phone, Email. The mobile version provided too. This bookmaker also has a bet-via-phone option.

The betting offer of Nairabet is on par with decent international bookmakers. Sportsbook covers more than 20 categories, including ice-hockey, floorball, motorsports. They even have a Special Bets section with interesting parlays from different sports. All major categories (tennis, basketball, football) have a deep and diverse coverage. For instance, you can bet on some youth and amateur league in football, on more than 30 leagues on basketball, and even on Byelorussian hockey championship. Bettors will find here more than 300 different outright markets, which is a very good number.

Their coverage of top-matches in main sports is decent. Nairabet adds goalscorer markets for top-football, as well as cards and corners. In other sports, like tennis, the bookie puts around 30 markets, and in basketball around 20. Additional betting options (stats, players’ stats) are available only in football, though.

Live section never sleeps with more than 10 000 events monthly. The in-play section is dominated by football, tennis, and basketball. You won’t find here live-streaming or even play-by-play animations, which is obviously the disadvantage. At least, the bookie can offer a good speed of odds’ refreshing.

The odds (payouts) at Nairabet are nothing special. The bookmaker offers a standard margin range (4-7.5%) for different markets. Odds or in-Play usually lower by 1-2% compared to pre-match.

The company accepts only Naira (Nigerian currency). Supported payment methods: Naira Mastercard, ATM, VISA, GTBank, Verve, Bank Transfer. The withdrawal time depends on the system.

So, here is the finale of our Nairabet review. What we can say about this bookie? It looks like a decent betting company with good coverage of sports and competitive odds. The website is no worse than the websites of well-established international companies. There is a reason why Nairabet is so popular among Nigerian bettors. Sure, this bookie has some flaws, and some players face issues from time to time (payment delays, void bets). But the same can be said for 99% of betting companies in the world. Bet Now!
