Open an Account | 1XBet Site Mirror Nigeria is the most populated country in Africa and home to approximately one-fifth of Africa's entire population. Less than 25% of Nigerians live in urban areas and the mediocre spread of the internet has greatly slowed the growth of online betting in Nigeria. Nevertheless, Nigerians love sports, and football in particular, and despite the poor economic conditions, there has been a progressive increase in bets coming from this country in recent years.
Beyond the classic betting on the partial or final result of matches, most of the bookmakers which are popular with Dolphins FC, Enyimba and Bayelsa United fans, to name just a few of the major teams preferred in Nigeria, also offer bets on the team to score the first goal or on the total number of match goals. The most competitive bookmakers offer live betting for the domestic Premier League matches so that users can follow the event live on their PCs. At the moment only 1XBet offers this service, but other bookmakers such as Unibet offer similar services. The live betting format is both exciting and adrenaline-charged, and is supported by three very useful resources: statistics, live scores and live streaming that allows you to see what is happening in real time.
As mentioned, Bet365 is the bookmaker that dominates sports betting amongst Nigerian fans. Lately however, bookmakers traditionally of a more European character such as 10Bet, Betshop and Exclusivebet are also experiencing considerable success in Nigeria. The relative ease of registration and the many options for transferring money into a betting account have added to the success of sports betting in Nigeria.
The main preferred methods for money transactions in Nigeria are typically credit cards and bank transfers, but recently many Nigerian have begun to show a preference for alternative methods such as Skrill, Neteller or EcoPayz.
