The betting programme represents without a doubt one of the core aspects in determining the most suitable bookmaker. After all, the available sports should match one’s own preferences. And in this respect, it doesn’t come as a surprise that the more disciplines are available, the more betting enthusiasts can find a suitable contact point. Well, when it comes to sports, Bet9ja definitely still has some work to do. Because: We wrote this test on Mondays, but we only noticed 20 sports.
Of course, most of you don’t miss out on the betting fun, but with various competitors, you can find up to 30 sports. Then again, the offer includes entertainment bets in the area of special wagers. This is partly due to the former cooperation with Big Brother Naija.
The depth of the wagering programme stands out
In addition, the depth of the betting offer undoubtedly impresses. Unsurprisingly, you can see this, especially at the heart of www.bet9ja.com, the offer on soccer or football. Because: on a Monday, we came across around 60 countries and, in the case of the top nations, several amateur leagues. And we assume that there is a connection between the latter point and Bet9ja’s support of SocioLiga.
Of course, with regard to the top competitions in European football, we saw about 160 betting markets before and on match day. In terms of the exact number, you can only find it in the most modern web app at Bet9ja, and thus also in the Android app.
But that’s not all because: You can find numerous special bets, player bets and antepost bets in separate areas. Concerning the player bets, you can stake in particular on the goalscorers and the cards, but also on the number of shots and the number of assists.
Bet9ja’s Zoom Soccer, virtual sports and Firebets
Moreover, you can find Zoom Soccer in the Bet9ja betting overview. This allows you to bet on the real teams of the most important European competitions with the actual squads. The fundamental difference compared to the other football bets on these teams is the fact that in this case the matches are simulated. Furthermore, you can access individual events via the top navigation and the “Simulate” button there.
If you are not completely delighted by this, you can also start via the top navigation with the virtual bets. At www.bet9ja.com, you can bet on the Bundesliga, the Euro League, the English League, the Asian Cup, the EURO 2020, the Nations Cup, the World Cup, and the Champions Cup. Additionally, you can choose basketball, tennis, MLB, horse, and dog racing.
Moreover, in the “Bet9jaPlay” section, you can bet on match days in the English Premier League and La Liga and on horse and dog racing. The special feature is that you have up to three minutes to do this. Thereafter, the next offer appears.
Additionally, the Firebets represent an interesting feature. Here, you can place bets on selected markets on 8, 10, 12, 14 or 16 football matches. To be more precise, you must get the code in the corresponding area and then enter it in the Bet9ja terminal or in the Betslip area. Afterwards, you can still edit these combined bets or remove games.
For the other sports, Bet9ja offers clearly less wagers
Then, unsurprisingly, basketball constitutes the second most important sport at www.bet9ja.com. As with football, there are also special bets, and you can find matches from a relatively large number of competitions.
The latter also applies to tennis and ice hockey. The other side of the coin is that even with regard to the NBA, you can find less than 30 betting markets per game. And that represents a fraction compared to football. At the end of the left navigation, the bookie collects the outrights in football, american football, baseball, basketball, ice hockey, motorsports, rugby, and tennis.
Moreover, the odds at Bet9ja do not reach the level of those of various competitors. The English Premier League and the UEFA Champions League are the best bets, with odds of 96%. Apart from that, you have payout percentages of around 95% for the other top European competitions. With regard to the NBA, WTA tennis and the NHL, the odds keys are 94.30%, 94% and 90.80% respectively. On the other hand, the fact that you can make prematch and live cashouts at www.bet9ja.com constitutes a pro.
Also with the live bets, the breadth needs to be expanded
When it comes to live betting, we were impressed by the depth of this betting site. On the other hand, we could have bet exclusively on football, tennis, basketball, volleyball, ice hockey, table tennis and snooker. And these are, at least once in comparison with various competitors, relatively few sports. Even though, you can also place in-play wagers on Bet9ja’s hobby-horse Zoom Soccer.
The other side of the coin is that you can, especially in connection with football and Zoom Soccer, bet on matches from numerous leagues and tournaments. Here, as with the prematch wagers, you can select individual competitions. The number of betting markets, which are also only visible in the more modern mobile versions of Bet9ja, depends primarily on the league and the tournament. The stronger and more popular the competition, the more options there are.
For example, we saw several dozen options for a match in the Tanzanian Premier League and relatively many for the Qatari Reserve League, but still fewer markets. Moreover, the number depends on the match. In general, we noticed the Combo+ function, with which you can combine betting markets, almost everywhere.
With live bets, you generally must accept lower odds. And this also applies to Bet9ja. However, the one on the NHL (90.60%) is practically an exception. In this case, you only must give up 0.2%. With regard to live bets on real football, we noticed payout percentages between 91% and 92.30%. And in connection with WTA tennis and the NBA, the odds keys reached the 90.50% and 92.30% marks in our Bet9ja test.
The live streams of European top football leagues
The live streams represent another good reason to register at www.bet9ja.com. The bookie is one of the very few in Nigeria to offer this feature. But that’s not all, because: You can keep up to date with Italian, Spanish, French, and Dutch football matches. Besides, you can follow some basketball and tennis matches. For this, you need either at least 200 ₦ in the betting account or a bet in the previous 24 hours. Furthermore, you can make cashouts just like with the prematch bets.
