OVERVIEW

1win is a rather interesting sports betting brand, which appears to be gaining popularity in the Nigerian betting community. This is why we believe that it might be a good idea to tell you a little about them, what they offer and whether they are in any way better than local sportsbooks.

1Win opened up in 2016 and is not exclusively a Nigerian betting site, they operate in over 30 different countries all round the world. Also, it is worth mentioning that they currently only support USD, however they are planning to start supporting Nigerian Naira in the near future. At first this might seem like a drawback, however in reality it should not cause you any funding issues. You can easily use pretty much any Nigerian bank to handle payments. A number of other local payment solutions are also available.

1win’s website uses an interesting innovative approach with its functionality and overall UI design. You can watch live streams of football games and take advantage of a number of betting-related features to help you play smarter. There are also apps for Android and iOS and even Windows, which you can download and install from the official website. Using mobile apps will give you additional bonuses and boosts, which we will cover in more detail in the “Promotions” section below.

REGISTRATION

The registration process at 1win is quick and stress-free, so you should be able to get started in no time. There are a couple of different registration options to choose from, which we will tell you about right now.

Firstly, you have the “quick” registration option – you will need to enter your mobile phone number, email address and desired password. Once you submit this registration form – you are good to go, there is no need to confirm anything at this stage.

The second option you can go with is using social networks to create an account, we can specifically recommend using Telegram or your Google account. In this case the registration process is even quicker – simply follow the instructions and your account will be all set almost instantly.

Having said that, regardless of what registration option you will decide to use – creating an account will take under 1 minute.

WELCOME OFFER

The welcome offer for new players at 1win is always an intriguing topic – they have a pretty generous 500% bonus up to $2,800, which is roughly equal to over ₦1,000,000. This is one of the biggest welcome offers you can currently claim in Nigeria at the moment.

Each bonus can be up to $700 (₦290,000), however you don’t have to make such large deposits in order to participate. A deposit of ₦420 will already be enough to activate the bonus.

SUPPORT

Support at 1win has a positive and a negative side, which likely any support service has. Nevertheless, let’s start with the positive part – the waiting time on live chat is always under a minute and support agents are available 24/7. You will not have to wait for an operator to come online if you find yourself needing assistance, someone is always there.

Now, let’s cover what we didn’t exactly like about 1Win support. While they are always exceptionally quick to answer your chat request – there are some issues when it comes to answering actual questions. Don’t get us wrong, our questions were answered, explaining them just took more effort than we would normally expect. Despite that, the response time is quick, so you will always have a chance to talk with somebody and you will eventually have your query resolved.

Still, you are probably most interested in knowing what the offering is like for football, how many games there are to choose from and what kind of markets are available. Let’s take a look at some real-life examples to give you a clear and accurate picture of what to expect here.

On any given day you will see over 1300 football games open for betting, these cover pretty much any country, competition and tournament you can think of. Now, let’s see what an average game looks like in terms of its market variety. Most games will have between 500 and 700 markets for you to choose from, along with a wide range of various combinations and special bets. As you may already expect, high-profile games will have way more markets – usually between 700 and 1000.

Let’s also take a quick look at 1Win’s live betting section. The variety of content is similar to what we had already described above, so your favorite football game will likely have live coverage, which is definitely good news. Usually, 1win covers up to 100 live football games throughout the day, this number may significantly increase depending on the season, of course. Most live matches will have up to 300 markets offered throughout the entire game, high-profile games will have twice that amount.
