ACTIONBET BOOKMAKER REVIEW
Actionbet is a new name in the Nigerian sports betting industry, they opened up in January of 2020 after acquiring a license from the Lagos State Lottery Board. As you can understand this was not the best time to start a business due to all the restrictions and lock downs, which we saw during 2020. Nevertheless, Actionbet were able to withstand all the difficulties and now they are operating at full capacity and are able to compete with other local betting brands. As they are here to stay, we decided that it is time for us to have a look at their services and tell you all about them.
Actionbet is an original Nigerian betting site, so as you would expect there are no issues with payments and withdrawals. All transactions are handled in Naira and money can go straight in and out of your bank account
The registration process is quite quick, you generally just need to fill out a registration form and you are good to go. The form itself is slightly longer than with some other bookmakers – here you will also need to specify your address, and mobile phone number. On the other hand, you don’t need to confirm anything when you register – you just submit the for and you are all set. This makes the registration process a lot shorter, so creating a new account will take around 2 minutes.
Actionbet has a handful of pretty sweet offers available, we will cover all of them in the “Promotions” section below – for now let’s take a look at the welcome offer. As a new player from Nigeria you are entitled to a 250% welcome bonus up to ₦250,000 after you make your first deposit. The things that makes this offer stand out is the fact that you can wager the bonus with just 2 selection accumulator bets. For comparison, other betting brands require you to have at least 3.
Additionally, if you will like it here and will keep on playing you will get another 50% bonus after you make your third deposit.
Even though Action bet is a relatively small brand, they are paying a lot of attention to supporting their players. You will have several different ways to contact a support representative available 24/7. Depending on your own personal preferences, you can use email, Telegram, Whatsapp or you can even give them a call and talk on the phone. Phone support is generally a rare thing, seeing it being available at Actionbet is definitely a good surprise.
BETTING MARKETS AND ODDS
It is important to keep in mind that Actionbet is a relatively new betting operator, so the fact that they already offer over 13 different sports is definitely quite impressive. We are going to take a close look at football betting to give you a realistic picture of what you can expect to see here.
At any given day you will have between 500 and 700 games to choose from. The market variety for pre-match football betting is quite rich, which we didn’t really expect. You can see between 800 and 1000 different markets being offered for most high-profile tournaments. Smaller and less popular competitions will obviously have less markets, however you can still expect to see at least 500 markets on an average. It is also worth mentioning that most games will have a decent variety of special and combination bets.
The live betting section also looks intriguing – most games will have up to 100 markets offered for almost the entire duration of the game. It gets even better with top-tier tournaments, where you will usually see over 150 markets. Cashout is available and bets can be cashed out up until the last minutes of any game.

We all know that a good mobile betting platform is a cornerstone of a successful sports betting site. Actionbet have a dedicated mobile version of their website, which we are going to take a look at together with you.
As soon as you open up actionbet.ng on your mobile device, you will see that its design and layout are quite simple and minimalistic. As far as we are concerned, this is a good thing as the website will not take up a lot of your traffic and will load reasonably quickly.
The sports betting section is slightly different from what we are all used to. Once you pick a sport you will not be taken to an overview page, where you can see all the available games. Instead, you will need to navigate further to select the country and tournament you are interested in – only then you will see available games from that tournament. On one hand, this navigation logic makes it easier for you to find exactly what you are looking for – on the other hand, you won’t be able to browse everything in case you aren’t sure what to bet on.
Now if we look at the live betting section, we will see that it is slightly different and more in line with other betting sites we know. Once you select a sport, you will be shown all available live games for you to choose from. Each game will have an indication of how many markets are currently open, so you can easily identify games having most open markets. When you open up a game you will see an interactive score center with the current score and a timeline of events. The main drawback here is not being able to filter and sort markets, however we hope that this feature is going to be added in the future.
ACTIONBET DESKTOP SITE OVERVIEW
A functional and user-friendly interface design is usually a good sign when it comes to betting sites, as this will enable you to find exactly what you need in just several steps, markets and selections should be clearly visible and understandable while the betslip part should show all details relevant to your bet and additional options and/or features if applicable. Below are some examples of how Actionbet online sports betting section looks like.
The desktop version of Actionbet is mostly in line with what you would expect if you already have some experience with other betting sites. Nevertheless, it brings some quite interesting features to the table, which is not common when you are dealing with a relatively new brand.
As soon as you open the website, the home page will present you with several most popular betting categories like: top leagues, ongoing live games, upcoming games and a regular sport picker. There are also some additional things that stand out – first of all, it is the date filter, which will allow you to see games that take place within a certain date range and you can do that right from the home page. Another noteworthy thing is a section with the most popular games, a section with games that are about to start, these games usually have the highest odds right before the scheduled start time.
REFER YOUR FRIENDS AND EARN MONEY
As a player you will get your own affiliate code, which you can share with your friends, social media followers or blog readers. Every player that registers using your affiliate code will bring you profit for as long as they keep playing. More precisely, you will get 2% of any amount your referred players deposit. Of course, it may seem not that much, however if you do some basic math it becomes clear that even if you refer 20-30 active players – this is already some good pocket money for you.
