How We Review Nigerian Betting Sites and Online Casinos

Notebook and pen

Transparency is very important for us. We want our readers to believe what we are writing and we want to help them choose the best betting sites in Nigeria. In this article, we will talk about what we look at when we review a gambling site.

We cannot be bought

When you are reading our reviews you can be sure that what we write is 100% correct. We have almost a decade of experience in reviewing gambling sites so we know what we are talking about. We know what the player wants but if you feel there´s something we have forgotten, don´t hesitate to tell us.

We are an independent website and gambling providers cannot influence our decision. What we write is what we think. If we find something we don´t like about a betting site or online casino you can be sure that you get to read about it. Too many betting site reviews are all about praise, we are all about honesty.

All of our reviews are fact-checked by our editor Sportdude.

How we write the reviews

Here is what we look at when we review Nigerian betting sites and online casinos.

Design and UX

The first impression is of course important. Does the site look good? What colours are used? How is the layout?

After that, we look at how easy it is to use the site. Is it difficult to navigate the site or is everything you need just one click away? Is it difficult to register an account or can you start playing in a minute or less?


How long has the betting site been operating? Who owns the company behind the site? This is extremely important because players of course want to feel safe when money is involved. There are unscrupulous gambling companies and if we find them we will you all about it. We read up on forums if some players have any complaints but we also check which licenses and certifications the gambling company has.


Bonuses are so much fun! It makes us happy when we join a new casino and they greet us welcome with a fantastic bonus. We also enjoy when casinos reward us in VIP programs for being loyal players. Some betting sites even offer bonuses on your birthday!

But sometimes the bonuses are not all what they seem. There might be some tricky paragraphs in the bonus terms that are not beneficial for the player. These are important things for us and we always go through the terms to be able to write about them in our reviews.

Game selection

It´s no fun when a betting site has a nice design and great bonuses but only offers betting on Nigerian football. Maybe they even only have a handful of matches and that won´t keep you entertained for very long. We always check which sports are offered, is there is betting on esports, and if live live betting is available.

At online casinos, we look at the selection of online slots and table games. A good casino needs to have all the popular game developers in Nigeria plus some more. They also need to offer roulette, blackjack, and all the other popular table games.

Payment methods

Payment methods are also an important thing. This is actually quite varied on Nigerian betting sites. Some betting sites only have a few local payment methods like Quickteller whereas other websites offer international payment methods like VISA and Mastercard. Some also offer eWallets like Skrill and Paypal or even cryptocurrencies. 

As there is currently no perfect payment method for casinos in Nigeria we prefer the site to have as many methods as possible. We also like when they are clear about payment terms and information about minimum deposits as many Nigerian players like low deposits and of course it´s also important to know if there are any fees associated with payments.

Customer support

We enjoy informative betting sites. With that, we mean pages that contain information about almost everything you need to know about the casino. Clear bonus terms, information about payment methods, and maybe even some descriptions of the games.

Even the most informative betting sites cannot include everything. Sometimes a problem arises that you cannot solve by yourself. Then it´s nice to have customer support readily available. We always list which methods you can contact the gambling company with. What hours is their support open and can you contact them through WhatsApp or Telegram? The easier the better.


We always try our best to produce completely honest and transparent reviews. However, sometimes we also make mistakes and if there´s something you don´t agree with, send us a message and we will look into it. Together we can find all the best betting sites and online casinos in Nigeria!
