Welcome Bonuses in Nigeria: Which Betting Sites Offer Less Complicated Schemes
In this part of the world, welcome bonuses are pretty much a big deal. The Nigerian betting scene has seen many bookmakers gain popularity for so many reasons but one thing that remains a big deal till date is the welcome bonuses.
This is the first impression given to a customer on how ‘generous’ a bookmaker can be to a prospective customer. Some bettors get hooked to a bookmaker simply because they got mouth‑watering welcome bonuses upon registration. However, it can go the other way as well. We have seen cases where prospective customers immediately lose interest in bookmaker simply because they did not get welcome bonuses that suit their taste.
However, it is one thing for bookmakers to have good welcome incentives but unrealistic terms/ requirements to go with. In fact, it is about the one thing customers are out for more than the actual bonus itself.
Patience is not a virtue most bettors have ad seeing they can get their wins/ turn their bonus into real money as soon as possible is a massive plus for any bookmaker.
This article will be taking a look at some of the bookmakers in Nigeria, their respective welcome bonuses and how easy/complicated it is to access these bonuses.
Bookmakers with Simple Terms
On the list of bookmakers in this article, Wazobet easily boasts the most stress‑free bookie regarding their welcome bonus. They offer 110% first deposit bonus up to 50,000NGN. The minimum deposit to be eligible is 1000NGN/5 USD.
Their turnover requirements are straight to the point.
Five times is quite fair and their odds are at 1.35 unlike most bookies who say games chosen must have odds of 1.50 minimum.
Betwinner offer a 100% first deposit bonus up to 100,000NGN. Simple and straight to the point is what they are also all about. The minimum amount to be eligible is 400NGN.
To turn over the bonus, you must wager the bonus amount five times in accumulator bets. Each accumulator must contain three or more selections. At least three of the selections included in an accumulator must have odds of 1.40 or higher.
LionsBet have the heart of many bettors because they have a very unique welcome bonus scheme. Asides the usual 100% bonus, you will also get a 50% bonus on your second deposit and a 25% bonus on your third deposit. With all three deposit offers, you must deposit a minimum of 1,000NGN to get a bonus.
To go with, their terms for turnover are pretty straightforward. You need to roll over your bonus amount seven times before you can withdraw any winnings from other bets.
This is not in any way cumbersome and is pretty realistic from LionsBet.
Betway also have pretty simple and concise terms to go with their welcome bonus. As seen on their website, they offer a 100% bonus for up to 100,000NGN for your first deposit. The minimum to be eligible is only a mere 100NGN.
To turn over the bonus to your main account, you only have to follow the next steps. Simply sign up and make your first deposit. You then place bets equal to 10x your deposit amount on odds of 3 or higher. Once you have fulfilled the play through requirements, your Free Bet will be credited to your account.
Accessbet also offer a 100% first deposit bonus up to NGN100,000 for new customers. The minimum deposit to be eligible for the bonus is 100NGN. Unlike other companies, their terms of redeeming the bonus to real cash are pretty straightforward.
In fact, you only need to meet three requirements as stated on their website.
This is easy to work with based on the requirements although the minimum of 10 wagers makes it even more than some other bookmakers.
Bookmakers with Complicated Terms
NetBet offer a 100% deposit bonus up to NGN100,000 for first time users. As long as you use the code ‘WELCOME200NG, you are eligible for it. You must also deposit a minimum amount of 100NGN. However, terms and conditions behind their welcome bonus could leave customers disappointed.
We will list some of the most tedious ones that would most likely turn off prospective customers as seen on their website.
- Depositing more than is needed to obtain the maximum bonus amount will add more rollover requirement than is necessary. For example if your account is in NGN then depositing more than 100,000.00 NGN to receive a maximum 100,000.00 NGN bonus will add more rollover requirement
- Players from Nigeria must play through both deposit and bonus eight times (8x).
Amongst many others, the above requirements would no doubt give bettors bad impression. Playing through the deposit and bonus eight times is a total turnoff and might even be unrealistic.
1xBet offer a 200% deposit bonus up to 100,000NGN for new customers. That sounds enticing, right? Well, let us take a closer look at that.
To withdraw the bonus, you must meet the following requirements as seen on their website. Firstly, you must deposit a minimum of 400NGN. You must then meet the other criteria below.
- Half of the bonus amount must be wagered 5 times in accumulator bets. Each accumulator bet must contain three events or more. At least three events within each accumulator must have odds of 1.40 or higher. Start dates of all events should not be later than the validity period of this offer.
- The other half of the bonus amount must be redeemed by wagering 30 times in 1xGames.
- The offer does not include the following 1xGames: Pachinko, PF Dice, Roulette, PF Roulette, PF Poker light.
The fact that the bonus is split into two parts and one is on their designated 1xGames, which can be changed ‘any time’, does not speak too well as per assurance or the bookmaker being straightforward about the bonuses. That alone could be a turnoff
BetBonanza offer a 100% first deposit bonus up to 100,000NGN. They also give free bets on your second & third deposits. For the second deposit, pay in minimum ₦1,000, and wager it on odds 2.0 or higher & get five free bets each worth ₦200. On the other hand, you can pay in ₦5,000 or more, wager ₦5,000 at least once on odds 2.0 or more & get five Free Bets each worth ₦1,000.
For the third deposit, pay in minimum ₦1,000, wager it on odds 2.0 or higher & get five free Bets each worth ₦200 OR pay in ₦5,000 or more, wager ₦5,000 at least once on odds 2.0 or more & get five Free Bets each worth ₦1,000.
Their terms would have been straightforward but for one thing.
The fact that the minimum odd for qualifying games to count for the turnover starts at 1.85 is a big turnoff. It might be difficult to find a combination of games with that minimum odd and then wager it correctly six times. That makes it a bit difficult.
