BANGBET BOOKMAKER REVIEW
Bangbet is a relatively well-known local sports betting brand, they operate across several African countries, one of which is Nigeria. You have likely heard about them from your friends or colleagues and might be wondering if they are actually a good sportsbook operator. We are going to take a close look at everything they offer to give you a clear and unbiased overview of their services.
Bangbet holds a valid sports betting permit issued by the National Lottery Regulatory Commission of Nigeria. Upon completing our initial check of their terms and conditions, they seem to be working in line with all the applicable rules and regulations that their license enforces. We also haven’t been able to find any significant and confirmed complaints online, which is obviously a good thing.
From a technical standpoint the website is quite advanced and has a number of cool features, which we will go over in some of the sections below. There is also a phone app, which is currently available only for Android devices. Nevertheless, it is still a good addition to the overall picture.
If you decide to join Bangbet – the first thing you will come across is obviously the registration process. The registration process is surprisingly simple – you will be asked to enter your phone number and password, so all you need at this stage is your mobile phone. Once you proceed, you will receive a confirmation code as a text message, which you will be asked to enter in order to complete your registration. As soon as you are done with that, you are good to go. Creating an account from scratch will take no more than 3 minutes.
As a new payer you will have an option to claim a welcome bonus – Bangbet gives new players a 50% welcome bonus up to ₦39,999 for the first deposit. The minimum amount you need to deposit in order to claim this offer is ₦399, the bonus funds you receive have to be wagered 9 times with the odds of 3.00 or higher. One cool thing about this bonus is the fact that you have to wager it using single bets, while most other bookmakers require you to use accumulators.
Most betting brands out there limit their welcome package to just the welcome bonus, while Bang bet also gives each new player a free bet. You don’t have to make any deposits, a free bet is there for you to take it.
Bangbet offers its users several 24/7 options when it comes to support. First of all, you have an option to send an email – this is probably a good option for issues where you need to provide screenshots and / or other attachments. Secondly, you can use Whatsapp to get assistance in real-time, it is actually a cool option as you don’t necessarily have to be logged in on their website. Finally, Bangbet also has an actual phone line, which you can call and get to talk to a real person to discuss whatever issue you might be facing. Not that many local betting brands have this option and Bangbet is luckily one of the ones that do. We have also tested their support service ourselves – we only used Whatsapp and email and we were generally satisfied with the level of support we received. All representatives that we dealt with were polite, professional and had good product knowledge, so it was easy to get our questions answered.
BETTING MARKETS AND ODDS
At the moment Bangbet offers betting on over 15 different sports with the top spot obviously being occupied by football. In fact, they have quite a decent variety of football games available on a daily basis. This allows Bang bet to easily compete with some bigger international brands. In order to give you a better overview of their sportsbook – let’s have a close look at football, as that is the sport most of us come here for.
At any given time of day you can expect to see over 1700 football games being available for betting. This covers pretty much every single country and league that you can think of. Of course, there might be some exceptions, however they are extremely rare. The number of markets will usually depend on the league in question – high-profile games have more markets, while less popular markets have less markets. On an average a football game will have around 100 markets open in its pre-game phase. Top-tier tournaments like the English Premier League or the Spanish La Liga can have up to 200 markets per game. Most games have a pretty good variety of special and combination markets available.
Now let’s also take a look at the live betting section. Bang bet covers over 100 live games on a daily basis on an average. During weekends it can be twice that number, which is a decent live coverage even by international standards. The market variety will also not disappoint you – at any given moment each game will have around 70 markets open for betting. Most markets are open up until the very last minutes of the game and cashout is also available.

DEPOSITS AND WITHDRAWALS
Bangbet is an original Nigerian betting site and you can tell that by looking at the accepted payment methods. The two primary payment methods are Paystack and Quickteller, which means that you are able to make and receive payments to and from mostly any local bank and ATM deposits. Deposits are free and instant, the same applies to withdrawals. Although for obvious reasons it will still take some time for the funds to reach you.
The minimum deposit amount is ₦100.
The minimum amount you can withdraw is just ₦1.
HOW TO MAKE A DEPOSIT?
Go to bangbet.com and sign in using your phone number and password. If you don’t remember your password and are unable to log in – you can reset your password using your phone number.

The payments page will allow you to choose between Paystack and Quickteller, so pick the one you need and follow the given instructions to proceed with your payment.
Depending on the payment method of your choice, you might need to add some additional information. For example, this applies to bank transfers – you will need to specify your account number. Now simply follow the instructions to complete your deposit.
PROMOTIONS AT BANGBET
Bangbet has a decent selection of promotions available for new and existing users. Obviously, these may change over time and are always updating our pages to reflect that is available at any given point in time. Let’s take a look at what Bangbet currently offers.
There are currently two offers targeting new players – a first deposit bonus, similar to what you would normally get from most betting operators and a free bet. Worth to mention that the free bet is available for literally all players, you don’t even have to make any deposits to claim it.
FIRST DEPOSIT BONUS
Most bookmakers out there offer some sort of a bonus to incentivize new players and Bangbet are not an exception. As a newly registered player you can get a 50% bonus boost up to ₦39,999 after making your first deposit. The minimum deposit amount in order to activate the offer is ₦399 and your bonus funds have to be used to place 9 bets before they can be converted into real money balance. In order for a bet to count towards wagering, the odds have to be 3.00 or more.
Minimal deposit: ₦399
Bonus valid for 30 days
Required odds: 3.0 or higher
This is the good part – free bets are given to all newly registered users and can be used within the first three days from when you registered. If your free bet wins, you actually get to keep the money and it will be transferred to your real money balance. The amount of the free bet itself will be deducted from your winnings and the difference will be yours to keep.
OTHER PROMOTIONS AT BANGBET
At the moment Bangbet has only one promotion for existing players and that is an accumulator bet boost offer, which we will have a closer look at below.
ACCUMULATOR BET BOOST
You have a chance to increase your potential accumulator bet winnings by adding more selections to your betslip. The bonus starts with 5% for four selections and gradually increases with every new one you add. The maximum boost you can get is 600%, which will be applied to your bet if you have 50 or more selections. This offer applies to all sports and bet types, the only condition is for each selection to have the odds of 1.20 or higher. It is important to note that this is the highest accumulator boost in Nigeria today.

Bangbet have done a great job making their website mobile-friendly and in fact, their mobile website is arguably more functional than the desktop version of it. They also have a mobile app, which we will talk about more below, however that app is currently available only for Android devices. Apple users will need to stick with the mobile website, which is cool because it has everything you need.
From a technical standpoint the mobile website is built in a way to reduce your traffic usage and shorten loading times. All static elements are re-used on every page and cached by your browser, this allows you to seamlessly move between pages and sections of the website. The actual user interface is pretty similar to what you would normally see with other betting providers and their apps – it is intuitive and easy to get used to. One more cool thing to mention here is the fact that the UI gives you information about the number of games available per sport and the number of markets per game, all on the home page. You don’t have to jump between pages to find that out.
If you are an Android user – you can download the Bangbet app, which is available on their official website. From a functional standpoint you will get access to the same features that websites users will have, although it will be significantly easier to manage your withdrawals. The app itself is quite small (just under 6 MB) and can be quickly downloaded and installed. Also, if you are going to use the app – make sure to keep it up to date if you don’t want to miss any new features and offers.
BANG BET 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 Bangbet’s online sports betting section looks like.
The Bangbet desktop website looks exactly like you would expect a betting site to look like. The layout will be instantly familiar to anyone, who is at least distantly familiar with betting in general. You will see the interface being divided into a number of sections (sports, live, upcoming, etc.) based on the activity you are interested in along with a sports selection menu on the right. What we really like about their user interface is the amount of overview information it gives you. You can see how many games are currently available for each sport and how many markets are traded in each game without actually having to open them. This will save you a lot of time that you would have otherwise spent on moving between pages searching for games with most markets. Account management pages like deposits, withdrawals and bet history are all easily accessible and are conveniently located next to each other.
BANGBET AFFILIATE PROGRAM
As you might already know, Bangbet has an affiliate program that you can apply to. This will allow you to promote their brand and earn commission from every new player that you bring in. Affiliate programs are a common practice among betting operators and Bangbet are no exception. If you are interested and want to get started, we will tell you more about this below.
HOW IT WORKS?
If you are planning to become a Bangbet affiliate – you will first need to create a regular user account. If you already have an account, you can use it as your affiliate account. Once you have an account, you will need to go to Bangbet’s affiliate website (link below), fill out the registration form and submit it. Your application will then be up for review. When and if your application is approved, you will get an email notifying you of that and an affiliate manager will get in touch with you to discuss all remaining details.
