LionsBet is a fairly new online sports betting site originally launched in 2016 primarily for the Nigerian sports betting market. Within a short space of time, the LionsBet online betting platform has grown in popularity throughout Nigeria and is poised to give some of the biggest online sports betting brands, currently operating in Africa, a run for their money. LionsBet has a lot to offer to Nigerian sports bettors, including a solid and dynamic live in-play betting platform, a great mobile site that even offers free browsing to MTN users, great customer support, good bonuses and promotions and more.
The LionsBetdesktop betting interface is very attractive in appropriate green and black colour scheme. The user interface is well laid out and makes moving around between pre-match betting, live in-play betting and other gaming options such as slots and virtuals, quick and easy.
LionsBet on mobile is solid and reliable and, if you happen to be an MTN user, you will be able to browse to your heart’s content with no data charges at all. The service is very popular in Nigeria and LionsBet are working on adding more networks to the program. The LionsBet user interface is optimised for mobile and looks solid, with easy one touch betting across all major operating systems.
Despite being a fairly new online betting site, LionsBet has proven to be quite reliable and offers a wide range of social media-based channels for their members to follow including a Facebook page and a Twitter page. Communication with the support staff is good, with plenty of channels to choose from including live chat and email. LionsBet is licensed and regulated through the Lagos state lotteries Board and uses the latest SSL digital encryption protocols.
LionsBet features a great live in-play section that is highlighted by an excellent graphics display of live events, with dynamic updates as they unfold.
The updates are delivered visually, allowing bettors to see with their own eyes exactly what is going on and allowing them to adjust accordingly. This at least makes up for the fact that LionsBet currently does not support live streaming, although the current set up works great for live betting. Pre-bet options are also available with plenty of markets to choose from across a broad range of popular sports including football, basketball, cricket and many more.
LionsBet sets reasonable minimum and maximum betting limits in order to accommodate the needs of most Nigerians. Currently, the minimum betting limit available at LionsBet is set at just N50, while the maximum betting stake is set at N1,000,000.
LionsBet is quite good when it comes to offering their members a variety of bonuses and betting promotions. For starters, all new players that open a fresh account with LionsBet can unlock a first deposit bonus consisting of a 100% deposit match up to N100, 000. In addition to the first deposit bonus, LionsBet members can enjoy frequent player points, cashbacks, accumulator bonuses and more. In addition, all MTN users can enjoy free browsing whilst on the LionsBet site, with other networks to be added soon.
Currently LionsBet offers a limited selection of payment options for making instant deposits into LionsBet accounts. However, these include most of the popular Nigerian payment options including Webpay Nigeria options.
All deposits are processed instantly, with payouts also handled fairly quickly.
The current minimum deposit amount for LionsBet is set at 50,000 NGN, while the maximum deposit amount is set at 1000000.00 NGN. The main method available for payouts currently is Bank Payout (Bank Transfer), with the minimum withdrawal amount set at 1000, 00 NGN and the maximum withdrawal amount set at 250000.00 NGN. There are no additional charges for making deposits or withdrawing your winnings.
