Sports betting in Nigeria has been increasingly gaining attention from fans of a variety of different sports. Soccer is, as you would expect, the most popular option among bettors but let us not forget that other trends are also in place.
Last week, Nigerian born UFC fighter Israel Adesanya clinched his UFC middleweight champion title by defeating Robert Whittaker with an astounding display of counter punches, something that surely caught the attention of Nigerian sports fans. It’s also common to find more experienced punters sniffing around in tennis betting markets.
But how are Nigerians supposed to choose from the pool of available online mobile sportsbooks? Websites like BetMobileNigeria are the go to resource when it comes to finding betting guides as well as a list of the best mobile betting sites, which also includes individual reviews about sportsbooks like Bet9ja, Naijabet, 1xBet, BetWay and many others.
Beating the bookies is no easy task, but a well informed bettor has a much better chance of doing so. Taking advantages of promotions like the Welcome Bonus available in most sportsbooks is a good way to get started but you’ll also need to place quality bets on a consistent basis.
Nevertheless, sports betting is above all else a form of entertainment. Getting started on it with goals of earning a living from it is, for most people, an unrealistic expectation. It’s important to keep that in mind before you dive into the many options available for placing bets on your phone – which include smartphone apps, mobile websites (including sites with a lighter version for older phones) and even USSD messages that allow you to fund your account and try your luck without even having an internet connection on your mobile device.
