Review of the bookmaker Sportybet from Legalbet

Founded in 2012, Sportybet is owned by Marawin Group, a Nigeria-based company with offices in the United Kingdom as well and numerous operations throughout Africa. SportyBet Nigeria is licensed by the Lagos State Lotteries Board.

With Super Eagles legend Kanu Nwankwo as their brand ambassador, they were able to pull lots of Nigerian customers on board with them and continue to create nostalgic feels within the country. Their simplicity and diligent customer service have seen them fast rise as a popular bookmaker in Nigeria.

Odds - Good

We calculated the margin for SportyBet 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.

SportyBet has an overall average margin of 4.69% and falls in the low category. In the first section with Spanish La Liga and Seria A, the margin is at 3.9%. With Premier League and Championship, in the second section, the margin is at 4.35%. Finally, taking the Netherlands Eredivisie, Polish Ekstraklasa and Austrian Bundesliga into account, the margin is at 5.84%.

Range of Sports and Markets - Good

As earlier said, SportyBet today would easily be noted as one of the best bookmakers around and this is attributed to the wide range of options from over ten different sports.

Aside from traditional sports like football and tennis, they offer virtual gaming among which we have football leagues, greyhound racing, horse racing, and cycling.

While SportyBet might not boast a lot of diverse sports like other bookies, their wide range of options for sports covered makes them stand out.

The football lovers, in particular, would fancy this bookie as they have as many as 100+ events for a single football game. Ranging from a number of cards to goal range to time of goal. If you're looking for options not peculiar to many bookmakers, SportyBet is your best bet.

Also, they have a peculiar jackpot feature. In the jackpot, you are given 12 real football matches where you are to predict correctly the outcomes of the games.

Only the home win, away win and straight draw options are allowed. The correct prediction of these matches stands you a chance of winning as much as ten million Nairas. 10 and 11 correct outcomes and you also stand a chance to win prizes too.

Another good option is the flex bet option, one of the stands out options for SportyBet. This allows you to choose a number of possible correct outcomes from your accumulator ticket. For instance, you play an accumulator of ten legs and you could set it has eight possible correct outcomes.

In-Play Betting - Good

SportyBet has a simplified live betting process for all customers. Because of its live score and always running update, in-play odds are placed directly besides teams and customers are allowed to choose from a wide range of options like the team to score next goal, next goalscorer and many more.

Football is the most played sport on the live betting column and SportyBet has been more than good to offer lots of options not offered by other bookies with good odds to complement them.

Other sports too, like Volleyball, Tennis, Basketball, Hockey are also prominent in the live bet column and they also get the luxury of juicy odds.

For now, SportyBet does not offer live streams during their live-in plays so we can only assume they'll add this in the nearest future. This would also help bring more customers for sure.

SportyBet also has a swift response cash-out option for customers who are not willing to risk all. They also have the partial cash-out option which makes them stand out from other bookmakers. Their partial cash-out allows you to make less than the full cash out as desired by the customer.
