A Nigerian bettor has every right to want the bookmaker he cooperates with to be verified by millions of users and evoke not intuitive, but well-founded trust. BetWinner is just this type of company, well recognized all over the world.
About BetWinner In Nigeria
If you have been betting for a long time, then this name should be familiar to you. However, it is worth getting to know the office that will potentially become your favorite, you need to get closer.
As is often the case with transnational bookmakers, the origin of BetWinner is rather vague: the company is registered in Cyprus, and it has a license from the Caribbean island of Curacao, and at the same time, in terms of language content, it is clearly focused on Eastern Europe. Nevertheless, the presence of a Nigerian version of the site and the ability to open an account in naira make the office attractive for Nigerians as well. In addition, in Lagos there is the head office of the Nigerian division of BetWinner, the address of which is not only not hidden, but also listed on the main page – and this is already a hint that in Nigeria the office has no problems with the state.
Official Website Review
Regardless of which version of the site you are using (international or actually Nigerian), the design of the pages does not change – it is designed in a combination of dark gray, white and green interspersed with sunny yellow. In general, the arrangement of the blocks is about the same as that of other bookmakers, although there is a fundamental difference – the main one does not really have a left block. Nevertheless, everything you need is conveniently located at hand: the header shows the main actions, such as changing the language, current time, balance, settings, login and registration, in the center on top of the promotion, and under them a large live block, while the right side is given under coupon, as well as express and single of the day.
BetWinner Registration Process
The first step for every new visitor is to register – without this, you will not be able to enjoy all the benefits of BetWinner. The methods are varied and different, but all are intuitive and convenient.
There is hardly a registration method more simple and logical than this one. In this case, you just need to select the host country (Nigeria) and currency (Nigerian naira is available, among other options). If you have a promo code, you can enter it, and then you just have to confirm that you are familiar with the rules and click the “register” button.
In the future, the new client will have to go through the procedures for activating an account and verifying himself as a user, adding much more information about himself to the system, but this will all come later, and you will have an account almost instantly.
In this case, it is no longer necessary to indicate the country – there is no need, given that the system will already understand everything thanks to the national telephone prefix. A special message with a confirmation code will be sent to the specified phone number – this code must be entered in a special field. The rest of the registration procedure is no different – except that you will not have to re-enter your phone number when filling out a more detailed questionnaire.
This method is already much less fast, but you will immediately provide the bookmaker with almost all the necessary information about yourself and you can no longer worry about it. In this case, you need to select not only the country, but also the region, and even register the city in which you live, as well as select the currency. From the contact information, you must indicate not only your email, but also your phone number, as well as your real passport data – first and last name. The user comes up with the password himself, it will need to be repeated to avoid typos. There is also a field for a promo code in this form, familiarity with the rules will also have to be confirmed.
Through Social Networks And Messengers
In addition to all of the above, BetWinner suggests that beginners do not have to fill out a questionnaire at all, instead logging in using one of the social networks. This is already a good source of information about the client for the bookmaker, because this way he receives, at least, information about the client’s email or phone number. To be fair, most of the available registration options are social networks popular in Eastern Europe, while the truly international Google+ and Telegram do not yet have impressive coverage in Nigeria, and yet for some Nigerians, even this registration method may be suitable.
Steps For Activating And Verifying Your Account
No matter how simple the registration process may seem, the matter does not end there – the bookmaker wants to know his client and be sure that you have provided the real data. You will have to confirm your identity through the activation procedure first, when a confirmation code comes to the specified contact and it will need to be entered in a special field, and then through verification – with the provision of identity documents to the BetWinner administration.
For verification, open your personal account and select the “Edit personal info” option. A large questionnaire will appear, all fields in which must be filled in for full verification.
By default, the BetWinner administration does not require any photographs or scans of documents from customers – for a Nigerian user, it is enough to indicate the serial number of the document that proves his identity. However, here it is better not to lie – if the security service has any doubts, it can ask for confirmation in the form of a photo.
As a document that a Nigerian user can use to verify identity, one can consider:
- Voter’s card
- Driver’s license
- National ID card
- International Passport.
When all the fields are filled in, and the serial number is entered, all that remains is to save all this data – and this completes your verification!
How To Make A Deposit
Having opened the list of options available for replenishment, you will see that the list is very decent – it includes as many as 37 ways of how to add money to your gaming account. True, three quarters of them are cryptocurrencies (which is very convenient for those who use them), but in general, Nigerians more often choose other methods of crediting funds, which we will now consider.
If you have a card from any bank issued by Visa or MasterCard, this means that you can already fund your account in various ways. You can enter the card number in a special field, where you can enter the details directly. In addition, many terminals provide for replenishment of an account in the BetWinner system – for this, you need to insert a card (or attach it to an NFC sensor) and select the option of replenishing this bookmaker’s game account from the menu.
BetWinner system supports interaction with several major Internet banking, which is very convenient for many users. Having found a bank or an electronic payment system where you have an account in the list of top-up options, just select it and then log in to the system. You will automatically be redirected to the page dedicated to transferring money to your BetWinner account – you just need to specify the amount and confirm your choice.
Given the legal status of the bookmaker in Nigeria, as well as its scale, it should come as no surprise that many banks on their sites have the option to fund BetWinner’s gaming account. Accordingly, you need to log into your own account in such a bank or payment system, and already there look for the possibility of transferring money to the bookmaker’s account. You will have to manually enter your own account number in the system, so be careful. Having decided on the amount, complete the transfer – and the money will go to the bookmaker.
Bet Winner Betting Options
If you have money, and you would like to increase it, relying on your own luck, BetWinner will do everything in its power to find not only a profitable, but also an interesting way to do it.
There is little doubt that the classic sports section is BetWinner’s most popular asset, both within Nigeria and globally. The full list of disciplines, which are presented in the right block on the page opened by clicking on Sports in the header of the site, consists of several dozen positions, and some of them are not even directly related to sports itself, because you can even bet on politics or the weather. Top disciplines, such as football, tennis, basketball and ice hockey, are shown up in the right block, and below there is a complete list of all options, as well as, in the form of separate positions, e-sport and long-term bets (for example, on the winner of tournaments ).
In the central block of the Sports section, the pre match games are presented in such a way as to first show the visitor the most interesting ones – on the day the review was written, the top was the football English Premier League, as well as the cups of Spain and Portugal. At the same time, it is possible to customize the filter, showing only one specific sport, or even search for an event by name.
Esports has long ceased to be entertainment only for those who play it – now matches between players and teams sitting at their computers gather huge audiences. We are unlikely to over praise BetWinner if we say that any competitor would envy the list of this bookmaker in eSports, even from among the famous and well-known ones. Here the set of events is far from limited to the ubiquitous Dota 2, LoL and CS: GO – there are even completely non-trivial Angry Birds and Mortal Kombat, on which, it turns out, you can also bet. Here, too, they paid special attention to football – there are several platforms at once in which e-sportsmen can measure their strength with each other, and bettors can compete in their ability to predict events.
If there are no really interesting events online, but you want to bet here and now, and not on unfamiliar cyber sportsmen, but on your favorite teams, there is a good option in the form of virtual sports. The grids here copy real-life tournaments and teams, only the opponents are not controlled by anyone except artificial intelligence, and that randomly (but taking into account the real strength of the opponents) generates the development of events in the game. Among other things, you can watch the broadcast, only it is much shorter than a similar event in life – which means that you can win in an extremely short time.
Live Betting And Streaming
Pre Match is an option only for very patient people, while the most avid bettors like to be in the game directly, reacting quickly to every change on the field or playing court. Especially for them, there is a “Live” tab, inside which only those games that are happening right now are collected. As befits a major international bookmaker, BetWinner offers live coverage of the top matches, so you don’t need any TV to stay up to date immediately.
Live In-Play Betting
By selecting the “Live” tab in the header of the site, you will see all the games in which the starting whistle has already sounded, but the final whistle has not yet been played. The display principle completely repeats the Sports tab, but all the scheduled matches were listed there. Consequently, in the right block (as well as in the central one at the top), you can select a kind of sport, and in the central one, the actual games are shown (by default, without division into disciplines.
The card of each event shows not only the names (names) of opponents, but also gives information about the timing and current score. In one click, you can bet on the outcome and double outcome, as well as total and handicap – these are the most popular bets, because the odds for them are placed directly on the match card. By clicking on the name of an event, you can open more detailed information about it, as well as a list, which can include several hundred positions for a decent tournament.
Multi Live Betting
This feature of BetWinner is something that many other bookmakers lack. Its essence lies in the fact that the user can add up to ten live events to a special page that are of interest to him personally. On a conditional day off, when hundreds of matches are played simultaneously, multi-live allows you to keep in front of your eyes only what is really interesting to you, filtering out everything else.
How To Start Betting At BetWinner
When we figured out what opportunities BetWinner offers, it’s time to bet and win!
How To Place A Bet
Find the match you need in any way – use the live block on the main page, or go to the Sports and Live sections in the header, then sequentially select the sport, country, tournament and the event itself. Already in the card you will see the most popular bets – on outcome and double outcome, total and handicap. You can click on the odds right here and the rate will be added to the coupon. If you like more sophisticated bets, open a match by clicking on its name and choose from a long list of offers.
Types Of Bets
BetWinner offers to bet both single bets and express bets. We, in fact, have just considered an ordinary – this is a bet on one match and one condition in it (or two or even three conditions, initially combined by one common coefficient).
However, you can add several conditions from different events to the coupon at once, and even from different sports – this is the express. Such a bet causes an increased interest of the bettor due to the fact that the coefficients are multiplied and give an even larger win. However, be prepared for the fact that the loss of any one component from the list of bets in the accumulator means that you have lost the entire accumulator.
BetWinner pleasantly stands out from the competition with favorable coefficients – the margin of this bookmaker is low, especially for popular tournaments. If these are top football leagues or tennis Grand Slam tournaments, the office will keep literally 3-4%. The average margin for less popular sports and tournaments is 5-6% (unpopular football, top hockey, basketball and MMA), and only for boxing, the margin is high – at the level of 8%.
There is no strict limitation regarding the size of the minimum bet – in the field for specifying the amount of the bet, you can even enter a unit opposite the number of nairas. The maximum bet is also not provided, however, there is a condition according to which the client cannot win more than 45 million naira, so be careful if you charge a large amount at a decent coefficient.
Cash Out Option
Surely every experienced bettor at least once in his life caught himself on the fact that he made a bet incorrectly or thoughtlessly. It also happens that in a single or an express train, so far everything is going in your favor, but the ending turns out to be very nervous, and everything can break down.
In all cases, BetWinner proposes to do without the hassle – just redeem your bet while it’s still worth something. Of course, the winnings will not be as large as if you had endured to the victorious end, but after all, that victorious end is not guaranteed by anyone, and so you will definitely remain in the black.
How To Withdraw Money
No one bets money just to admire the beautiful numbers on the account – any successful bettor will want to withdraw the won funds in order to use them in real life.
BetWinner’s variety of withdrawal options in Nigeria is quite extensive to suit the needs of any average bettor. The following options are available:
- bank cards;
- electronic wallets (Webmoney, Skrill, Perfect Money, Sticpay);
- payment systems (Neteller, ecoPayz);
- prepaid cards (AstroPay);
- cryptocurrencies (including all the most popular – only 27 items).
An authorized user should find the “Information” section in the website or application menu, and there – the “Payments” item. A page will open offering a full list of withdrawal methods – click on the one that suits you best. After that, it remains to enter the necessary details, indicate the withdrawal amount and confirm the transaction.
For each withdrawal method, the minimums and maximums are spelled out separately – they are indicated next to the method with which you will withdraw money. Although the commission is not charged anywhere, the difficulty with calculations may be caused by the fact that the service indicates the minimums and maximums not in nairas, but in rubles (from 100), American dollars (from 1.5), euros (from 1.5) and Turkish lira (from 9). Given that the rates of these currencies in relation to each other are constantly fluctuating, and the dollar and the euro have never been equal, the exact minimum in naira may fluctuate, but in general it is about 500 naira.
As in the case of limits, withdrawal periods depend on the method you have chosen and are prescribed for each system separately. For most of the methods available in Nigeria, the terms are indicated as 15 minutes, but in the case of bank cards, everything is much more vague – BetWinner suggests waiting from 1 minute to 7 days, since everything depends on the specific bank.
Despite the fact that the BetWinner website perfectly adapts to the screen sizes of mobile devices, this does not prevent the administration from offering customers convenient applications for popular operating systems. You can download the applications directly from the site. Individual applications are preferred by owners of fast, modern gadgets, which will not slow down due to additional software, but will provide maximum BetWinner functionality.
The application for Android can be downloaded from the site as an apk file. Such software is supported on almost all modern devices, except for those that still use very outdated OS versions. The program completely duplicates the functionality of the site, allowing you to never go to its desktop version.
This version differs from a similar application for Android or a mobile site only in that it is adapted for Apple devices. In all other respects – from design to functionality and convenience – they are completely identical.
Bonus Offers And Promotions
Among other advantages, BetWinner is interesting for bettors due to its exciting promotions and profitable bonuses. Let’s consider at least the most interesting ones.
Up to 100 thousand naira – this is the upper limit for doubling the first deposit, which is offered to all those clients who have filled in all the fields of the questionnaire and confirmed their phone number. In order to wager the received bonus, the bettor must wager the full amount of the bonus 5 times on express bets of at least three positions each, while the xpressbet must contain at least three events with odds of at least 1.4. The wagering period is limited, therefore the participant must hurry in order to wager the gift, otherwise it will not be possible to withdraw it.
VIP & Loyalty Program
For regular customers, the BetWinner administration has several gifts in store that will help make bets even more interesting. Among them:
- supplements in the form of 25% on top of the amount of the next deposit;
- cashbacks after a series of losing bets;
- the opportunity to insure the bet.
In addition, for the bets made, promo points are awarded, which can later be exchanged for valuable prizes.
The BetWinner bonus program is constantly updated – the bookmaker strives to add interesting promotions to every major sporting event. At the same time, there are also daily draws, such as “Lucky of the Day”, and attached to a specific day of the week, and even timed to coincide with the birthday of the verified bettor. Each of these promotions has its own conditions, which can be found in the corresponding section of the site.
Bet Winner Casino
Today, any self-respecting bookmaker is simply obliged to have their own online casino, and BetWinner, of course, is no exception to this rule.
The list of entertainments available at BetWinner online casino numbers hundreds of positions, but finding the right one without knowing the exact name will not be so easy – they are not all displayed on the site at the same time. Instead, there is a filter at the top that allows you to select the category of slots that interest you – for example, only popular or only new, baccarat or blackjack, keno or jackpot. You can filter the results by the provider who provided the game, as well as type the exact name into the search field. The offered variety is enough so that no gambler gets bored.
This section is a must-visit for everyone who does not want a virtual imitation of a casino – instead, he needs the presence of a real dealer or a host to feel the whole atmosphere of a real gambling establishment. Live casino give such an opportunity – a beautiful presenter sees all your actions on the screen, therefore she can interact with the players. Poker and Roulette is not a complete list of what you can play at BetWinner Live Casino!
Advantages And Disadvantages
Choosing a bookmaker to his liking, a responsible gambling enthusiast must adequately assess many different criteria for choosing a partner. BetWinner has a lot of advantages thanks to which customers consciously choose this particular company, and this is what customers most often note:
- odds – top, especially for popular football tournaments;
- the list impresses even experienced bookmakers, it is impossible to find fault with it;
- online broadcasts bring live betting to a completely new level, and they just let you cheer for your teams;
- the bonus program is varied and interesting, it keeps you in suspense no worse than a good sports match;
- BetWinner services are convenient to use even from mobile devices – both with the help of applications and thanks to the mobile site.
BetWinner has very, very few flaws. In many sources, you can find information that this is a young company that does not yet have a reputation, but this statement is already outdated – at least several dozen language versions speak for themselves. Therefore, almost the only thing that you can find fault with is that in the extended list the limits are set so that especially subtle sports experts cannot become millionaires after one bet.
The Nigerian version of BetWinner has its own, local support team, always ready to help the client in a difficult situation. You can contact her at several email addresses at once: for general questions, you should use [email protected], write complaints and suggestions to [email protected], and you can contact the support service directly through [email protected].
In addition, the office has a Nigerian hotline – you can reach it by dialing +2348001235343. You can also ask a question through a special form located in the “Contacts” section.
A chat with an online consultant is also available for users of the website and mobile applications.
Is BetWinner A Reliable Betting Site
Despite the fact that BetWinner is a relatively young company, it already has a sea of fans around the world. Objectively speaking, there is nothing to find fault with this office – at least in Nigeria it has an officially licensed status and a representative office that does not even try to hide from customers. The users themselves on numerous resources repeatedly note that this company is honest, it pays out winnings in accordance with promises, and the winners of its promotions actually receive prizes. Thus, BetWinner can be considered a reliable partner.
In addition, the administration treats the protection of the personal data of the clientele with due zeal – information about you will never fall into third hands. The funds on your gaming account, as well as the details of those payment instruments that you used to replenish the deposit and withdraw winnings, are also reliably protected.
In recent years, Nigeria has experienced a real boom in the bookmaking business – at last large international players have begun to enter our country, who not only formally present here, but also receive licenses, open offices, and allow betting in nairah. It would seem that it will be difficult for a young bookmaker in such conditions, but BetWinner is doing well – the army of loyal fans gathered in just two or three years will not let you lie. Perhaps high odds and an excellent bonus program are only a temporary phenomenon in order to attract maximum customers, but what difference does it make to us specifically if we can take advantage of these and many other benefits here and now.
