Bet9ja has a decent amount of conventional markets in sports and e-sports. It does not cover most of the non-sports events, limiting itself to major ones like presidential elections in the USA.

Credibility

8/10

Bet9ja holds a valid licence from the Nigerian Lottery Regulatory Commission, which makes the provider a legal sports betting operator on the market.
According to various sources, the website routinely places among the top-visited Nigerian websites.
During our research, we’ve encountered some complaints from people who did not receive their winnings, but there are very few of those in a span of years, so this makes us believe that overall Bet9ja has a quite decent reputation for a provider that size.

Overall

6.6/10

Bet9ja is a weird case of a betting site tailor-made for the local market. It has working functionality, but the design seems lacking and quite basic – which should be understandable if we were to remember that Nigeria is one of the worst countries when it comes to average Internet quality. It does a  good job for a local website – in some areas, it is on par with popular international betting sites.

  • There is a decent amount of deposit options, but only bank transfer is eligible for withdrawals.
  • The provider does not have an international licence, but it does not need any outside of the Nigerian one.
  • The customer service is clearly lacking both in options and accessibility

If you are a Nigerian looking for a betting site, Bet9ja will be a good option for you, as it is a popular brand trusted by thousands of Nigerians.
If you are not a Nigerian, Bet9ja is not for you, plain and simple.

Limitations

Bank transfer is the only payout option

Some website functions (such as bet generator) do not work

No live streaming

Any operations with account settings open in separate windows
