Sports Betting in Nigeria
Sports Betting and Bookmakers in Nigeria

The list of betting companies in Nigeria is small (Bet9ja, SportyBet, NairaBet), but none of them can fully meet the needs of the entire customer market.
Moreover, local bookmakers are losing the battle to the best international betting sites, which offer their customers a higher standard of sports betting.

How many locals participate in Sports Betting?
Nigerian Gamblers

The population in this country has a strong social stratification but, despite the fact that Nigeria cannot be called a financially prosperous country, the local residents' engagement in online sports betting is quite high.

This indirectly contributes to more than half of urban residents owning mobile devices and the relative availability of the internet for the local population.

As one might guess, the presence of the internet has dramatically increased interest in the largest betting sites available in the country.
Thus, the percentage of residents who participate in betting has increased even more.
