BET9JA 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 Bet9ja’s online sports betting section looks like.
For the most part the desktop website looks similar to other betting providers. All of the usual sections and like upcoming matches”, “live games” and so on. As you would expect, on the sports selection panel you have a number next to each line – this number shows you how many games are available.
One of the cool features here is the ability to pull up certain markets from all games where such a market is present. For example, say you want to find all games where the “Half with Most Corners” market is present. All you have to do is select it from the filters list and you will see all games, which have this market along with the odds for each one, all on the same page.
Another interesting feature Bet9ja have is their “Odds Less Than” filter. It allows you to find all open markets where the odds are less than a certain value you specify. For example, you want to find markets with highly likely outcomes, so you can search for “Odds less than 1.2”.
