SkyBetNaija Nigeria isn’t working

The operator for sports betting from Nigeria, Sky Bet Naija provides you the opportunity to place bets on dozens and sometimes, even on hundreds of different sport events every single day, including in the website live betting category. The company also offers bets for virtual sports, but they are available only in the physical shops in the country, while the internet platform is established only for bets on real sport events.

SkyBetNaija has at its disposal one of the most beautiful and functional pages on the Nigerian gambling market. The software that is made for the betting page is produced by Sir Play, which specializes in sport betting website software products.

If you decide to register in this betting page, you need to click on Sign Up link (it is placed at the top left side of your screen) and to fill in some gaps about:

  • Your personal information – Standard things such as names, birth date, country, address and the number of your ID (such a document, for instance, can be your passport, driving license and etc.)
  • Data Access – Here you need to fill in the data you are going to login in the betting platform, for instance your user name, password, PIN (required to make deposits and withdrawals), secret question and website language (besides English, you can choose from other website versions – 10 in total)
  • Contacts – Contact information via which the company can get in touch with you in case of a need: e-mail address and telephone number
  • Financial Data – the name of the bank, the number of the card and other data for future financial transactions.

Sport betting

The sport disciplines you can place bets on in this bookie aren’t that many, but yet they are few, either. The list includes the following sport types:

  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Ice hockey
  • Volleyball
  • Boxing
  • Tennis
  • Floorball
  • Handball
  • Rugby
  • Cricket
  • Darts

What makes an impression almost immediately when taking a close look at this betting platform is the lack of bets for winter and motorcycle sports, as well as the fact that the Nigerian football fans have no opportunity to place bets on the local Premium league. At the expense of these, Sky BetNaija program includes football events from dozens of other countries, including such where football isn’t so advanced at all – for example, Gibraltar, Malta and others. Here, you can also bet on amateur leagues from England and Germany, but even though all of these, Nigerian matches aren’t included – we can only hope that in future this will change.

The good thing about SkyBet Naija is that the bets for the biggest football leagues are finely developed and usually, the operator offers bets for two series ahead, as well as a choice between 300 or 400 options for a bet. To view them, you need to click on Others button that is located in the right end of the program. The curious thing here is that the additional markets can be opened with a flipping window, while most bookies are used to open them in a new window or in a drop down menu.

By all means, the low odds are the biggest weak points in this betting platform. We can feel it mostly in the draw markets, as well as in case of a win for the team that had been described as an outsider – plus for all the additional special markets. The odds for the most popular additional markets – Under / Over 2.5 scores – are usually 1.79-1.79 (with equal chances for a win for both of the teams) even for the biggest world matches, which is with 20 to 30% less than the odds from the top bookies in the sphere.

Mobile betting

The mobile version is quite simpler in comparison to the official desktop website the company provides. While the desktop version is so beautiful and colourful, the mobile version is deprived of all the graphics and counts on the black and white, sometimes grey scheme. However, this approach aims to make the loading of the page on older mobile devices faster and easier. Yet, it isn’t that fine-looking at all.
