Nairabet is the first bookmaker in Nigeria. It was founded in 2009 by the politician and businessman Oloye Akin Alabi. It is licensed by the National Lottery Regulatory Commission. The license is valid since April 2018 and is held by Over the Top Entertainment Ltd. The company is headquartered in Lagos.
Information about the application:
|Minimum system requirements||Android 5.0|
The Nairabet mobile app is not available on Google Play because in most countries, including Nigeria, Google does not accept applications related to gambling into the shop. To download the Android apk by Nairabet, you need to do the following:
- Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the yellow “Mobile Applications” button.
- Open the sidebar menu
- Select «Android App» there
- You will be offered to download the .apk file
- After downloading click on «Open»
- Click on «Install»
The mobile version of Nairabet allows you to bet on all events – in both the pre-match and in-play mode – quickly and conveniently. There you can also check the current statistics.
You can choose in the sidebar from the drop-down menu a list of sports available, in-play bets, promotions, casino, virtuals, mobile app, odds less than and more.
In the bottom bar you can choose a list of sports, in-play bets, virtuals, personal account and betslips.
The home page of the mobile website of Nairabet shows the most popular upcoming events. At the time of writing this is the final of the Champions League football tournament and a number of other events which can be accessed with a single click.
The less popular bets can be accessed by making several selections: sports – select sport – select country – select tournament.
In the In-Play betting section you can quickly switch between sports by horizontal scrolling. The sports are placed above the odds bar as icons with captions.
You will find a chat icon in the bottom corner on top of the screen no matter which sections of the website you choose. If you click on it, it will open the chat window.
Selecting Odds less than allows you to set odds filters, e.g. only odds greater than 1.5 will be shown.
Switching between sections and selecting bets is, according to the test results by the author of this article, quite fast. However, if the user’s internet is far from perfect, he or she can use a lite version of the website.
The lite version of the Nаirаbеt mоbіlе website
This is a unique offer from Nairabet, a bookmaker’s feature which seldom can be found. In the left menu you can choose «Mobile lite version». This version of the website does not contain any graphics or decorations, and looks like the internet forums of the early 2000s.
In the simple list you can make all the same selections as in the regular version, and bet quickly, even with a weak internet connection. The betslip will be placed at the top.
Users of the lite version can use almost all the features of the full mobile version. You can read the bookmaker’s rules, choose a deposit or withdrawal method. To complete the process you will have to go to the payment systems’ websites.
Some of the features like help or bonuses do not work in this version. Statistics are not available.
Diffеrеnсеs Bеtwееn the Mobile Aрр and the Mobile Vеrѕіоn
There is little difference between the mobile version and the app. There is no access to the lite version from the application. The app’s playing field is larger because there is no address bar, which is present in the browser. In other respects it completely duplicates the mobile version of the website. The main advantage, as with most applications, is faster access to the website – no need to log in and enter your password every time.
At the time of publishing Nairabet is not offering any bonuses for bettors who have downloaded the mobile app.
The application offers all the features that the mobile version of the website has. The bettor can place in-play bets, set betting filters by odds and time of events. Virtual sports and cashout available.
The in-play tab opens a betting field similar to pre-match betting. All current events available for live betting are shown by default. A specific sport can be selected with a scroll bar.
Odds less than
This option allows the customer to filter bets according to the odds and time of the event. For example, it is possible to adjust showing only the markets with the odds of over 1.50 or only the markets on matches that will start in 2, 3, 5 hours at the latest.
Virtual and Globalbet
Customers can bet on virtual sports. These are games that are simulated by a computer. Virtual sports looks similar to e-sports, only the teams are not controlled by anyone, they operate on the basis of the preprogrammed algorithms.
Globalbet is a well-known company that Nairabet works with and is responsible for the content and operation of this section. It offers several sports: football, horse racing, races and several types of lotteries. Virtual sports can be watched directly in the app.
In virtual sports the set of bets is limited to a few offerings. As a rule, these are basic bets: win-loss, totals and correct score. The matches/runs go very quick.
A customer can cash out his bet before the end of the event, if he/she has changed his mind, or if he/she wishes to avoid losing while the betting is going well – for example when 4 out of 5 bets in an accumulator win, and the winnings can be preserved.
If you want to cash out a particular bet find it in the list of the bets you’ve made and press the Cash out button. You will see the amount of money you’ll be able to receive. Sometimes this function may not be available – if an important event occurs in the match, which can change the course of the game.
Lucky goals and soccer jackpot
In these sections the bettor can take part in a competition: the big prediction for 10 and 12 matches. In Lucky numbers you shall guess the exact number of goals in 10 matches selected by the bookmaker. In the Soccer jackpot you have to guess the exact result of 12 matches. Tournaments take place every day and cost 50 naira per forecast. You can take part multiple times. The prizes are: 1,5 million naira in Lucky goals and 1 million naira in Soccer jackpot.
