Review of the bookmaker Betking from Legalbet

BetKing is a sports betting company in Lagos, offering online services nationwide and agency services in Nigeria. BetKing is currently licensed by the Lagos State Lotteries Board, Anambra State Gaming, and Osun State Government. BetKing is also licensed by the National Lotteries Board.

Though new in the Nigerian Betting Market, BetKing has quickly made its name with a large number of customers and lots of shop outlets across the country. The simplicity of their interfaces plus a wide range of betting options has kept them in limelight. The arrival of popular Nigerian football Jay-Jay Okocha as their brand ambassador also helped them grow further as a legitimate bookmaker in the country. They plan to spread from Nigeria and also move to other African countries and then globally over the coming years.

Odds — normal

We calculated the margin for Betking 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. 

Betking has an overall average margin of 5.06% and falls in the normal category. In the first section with Spanish La Liga and Seria A, the margin is at 4.15%. With Premier League and Championship, in the second section, the margin is at 4.74%. Finally, taking the Netherlands Eredivisie, Polish Ekstraklasa and Austrian Bundesliga into account, the margin is at 6.3%.

Betting options — good

Betking may incur some lapses in other sections of this review but for this section, they earn the “good” remark. With over 20+ sports and lots of options to wager on. Taking the English premier league, for instance, they have an average of 145+ options to wager on. Though football offers the highest number of options other sports are not left out as they also offer a decent number of options too.

Football being the most popular sport covers lots of leagues from over 50 countries, both domestic and international competitions. Lots of options from match winners, goal scorer, goals markets, halftime markets and many more

Virtual games are also offered to customers for betting. To be fair they did a very good job with their virtual games. With a special football game called the Kings Virtual league, football lovers would definitely fancy this one. They have the Kings' Liga which is the virtual version of La Liga and the Kings' Live League which displays life English league games.

Both leagues run continuous seasons played by 20 virtual teams that reflect real-team and real-player performance parameters. They both offer all main win markets and also have special markets like half time winner, half time correct score, HT Both teams to score and a whole lot of other options.

They also have excellent graphics and a beautifully designed page interface going beyond the expectation. They also have Greyhounds and the super six-game which also look fantastic and are good opportunities to change fortunes for the better. 

A little setback is the absence of esports and could be a turnoff for bettors who love to invest in the esports markets.

In all, Betking offers a straightforward sports-book experience as they are a sports-focused site.

Live — good

The live betting option has now become a trend in the betting business as most bookies offer this option even small-sized bookmakers. Well, Betking has a very good live in-play feature has lots of options are given plus lots of sports are covered excluding traditional sports like football, tennis, and basketball.

Not surprisingly, they do not offer the live streaming feature but events are update on the live score page as well as a 2D animator to show the movement and activities as they occur on the field of play. This is a better back up for the streaming feature.
