Review of the bookmaker 1xBet from Legalbet

Established far back in 2007, 1xBet have built a reputation as one of the top bookmakers in Europe, with their competitive odds and wide range of options and promo codes helping them gain ground faster on their competitors.

With their headquarters situated in Limassol, Cyprus, 1xBet infiltrated the African market with their simplicity and flexibility, with Nigeria being a major part of their success on the continent.

1xBet holds a proper and valid gambling license and are trusted partners with the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL).

Odds - Good

We calculated the margin for 1xbet by analyzing the odds they offer. We further ranked them in one of the following three categories:

From 1% to 5%: Low

From 5.01% to 7%: Normal

From 7.01% to 10%: High


We got our results by taking into account the odds for final result outcomes measured in line with the over / under for different football leagues. Getting the average results using this method, we were able to obtain the margins for each league and the overall betting margin for the bookmaker.

1xbet has an overall average margin of 2.99% and falls in the low category. In the first section with Spanish La Liga and Seria A, the margin is at 2.2%. With Premier League and Championship, in the second section, the margin is at 2.91%. Finally, taking the Netherlands Eredivisie, Polish Ekstraklasa and Austrian Bundesliga into account, the margin is at 3.88%.

Bookmakers margins

Range of Sports and Markets - Good

1xBet are easily one of the best bookmakers today and a lot of their success is attributed to their wide range of markets that'll most likely please even the most demanding of customers.

Asides offering traditional sports events such as football, basketball, tennis, hockey and others, they also cater for fans of more diverse interests including horse-racing and darts.

In total, our 1xBet review found that they currently total around 45 sports markets, which spans through Football, Volleyball, Basketball, Hockey, Tennis, Handball, Ski jumping and a whole lot more.

Asides their impressive range of sports markets, 1xBet also boasts some enticing betting odds, even far more competitive than most of the more experienced bookies in this area.

50/50 outcome events carry average odds of around 1.92, which is a good indicator that defines how good bookmakers odds really are.

1xBet is the perfect platform for punters looking to play "safe" although they do have a shortcoming in the area of their betting limit. This is dependent on the ticket type and varies depending on the sport market as well.

They also have special options and are among the first bookies in Nigeria to introduce special options in the football market like "team to score three in a row (yes or no), minutes which goals would or would not go in as well as number of shots on target throughout a match.

However, for those interested in placing larger bets, the 1xBet customer service team can help deal with requests to increase the stakes.

The upside to this is that customers are able to capitalize on an accumulator bonus with 1xBet, with winnings boosted by a certain percentage influenced by the number of selections added to your ticket.

In-Play Betting - Good

1xBet has a simplified live betting process for any customer to follow. In-play odds are placed beside each team and customers are allowed to choose from a wide range of options. Football is the popular sport in the live bet column and features special markets like first goal scorer, over/under goals and number of corners. While many bookies boast these features too, only 1xBet and a few others offer this option during a live match.

Other sports like Tennis, Basketball, Hockey and Volleyball are also prominent in the live column while less traditional such as eSports and horse racing are being improved all of the time.

1xBet also have a swift cash-out options for undecided customers who aren't willing to risk it all. Customers have the option of cashing out certain amounts already calculated based on probability as the games are in-play.
