Betano is a well-established betting brand with a significant presence in more than 10 countries. Until 2023 they were operating in European countries as well as North and South America. Now they are also open for Nigerian players and are likely to expand further into other African countries in the future.

The local Betano website is operated by a locally registered company called Kaizen Gaming Nigeria Limited. This company currently holds a valid license issued by the National Lottery Regulatory Commission.

The Nigerian website is structured and built the same way as their other websites, ensuring the same level of quality and content variety.


The registration page will list several options to create a new account, which is quite convenient because two of them are very quick. It is important to ensure that you enter your correct phone number when prompted, as you’ll need to verify it at a later stage.

The two quickest registration methods are Facebook and Google. If you have an account with either of these platforms, you can use that account to create a Betano player profile. This will not require any additional details from you other than your phone number.

Alternatively, you can choose the standard registration form, which you’ll need to fill out and submit. In this case the main identificatory for your player account will be your email address.

Either way, setting up a fresh player account should take no more than 2 minutes.


Like most other sportsbook operators in Nigeria, Batano also has a welcome offer for new players. As a newcomer you can get a 100% welcome bonus up to ₦100,000 after making your first deposit. There are larger welcome offers out there, yet the good thing about this one is that you can wager it using single bets.

The minimum amount you must deposit at least ₦100 and make sure to pick the “Betting First Deposit” bonus on the payment page.

Your bonus will be added to your player wallet automatically and it has to be wagered 10 times before you can withdraw it as real money.


Betano takes customer support seriously and provides a dedicated support portal accessible from their main website. This portal contains dozens of FAQ articles covering a wide range of common questions you might have.

However, in case you didn’t find what you were looking for, you can still reach out to their support via live chat. Support live chat can be accessed from the same portal by pressing the green “Lets’ chat” button.


At the moment Betano’s sports betting section features over 30 different sports, spanning from various niche disciplines all the way to significant sporting events like the Olympics and even political elections. You will also see some of the better known Nigerian tournaments being offered here in case you are interested in betting on local football games.

To provide you with a clearer picture of what awaits you, let’s take a look at some real football games that are open for betting.

As an example, let’s take an Italian Serie A game between AS Roma and AC Monza. During the pre-game phase, you will have around 200 betting markets to choose from. This includes a wide range of over/under and handicap lines as well as various special markets and prop bets.

The live betting sections will obviously have a slightly reduced number of sports available, however all the main go-to disciplines are here. If we look at football, on average a live game will have between 20 and 50 markets open concurrently.

Live betting remains available right up to the final minutes of the match, and in most instances, you will also have the option to cash out your live bets.

When browsing the live betting section on Betano, you might notice that some games have a “play” sign next to them. This is an indication that a live video stream is available. However, please keep in mind that this is usually the case only for top-tier tournaments. Please bear in mind that access to this feature is exclusive to registered and signed-in users.

A significant noteworthy feature you can find on Betano is their same-game parlay functionality. If you are an experienced sports bettor, you will know that you are normally not able to combine outcomes from the same game into one accumulator bet.

betano same game parlay

The same-game parlay feature changes that and allows combining selections from the same game. All it takes is a simple toggle of the feature switch on the betting interface. This functionality is accessible for all game types, whether they are pre-match or in-play.


Finally, if you would like to take a break from traditional sports betting, you might be interested in exploring the virtual betting section.

Betano doesn’t make as much of an emphasis on virtual betting compared to some other local betting brands, however they still have a solid selection of sports to choose from.

Virtuals can be accessed from the “explore” tab, which you can find in the horizontal navigation menu around the bottom of the screen. Once you open the virtual betting section, you will be able to choose between 7 different sports: football, basketball, tennis, speedway, horse racing, greyhounds and cycling.


American football, Baseball, Hockey, Basketball, Soccer, Tennis, Golf, MMA, Esports, Table Tennis, Boxing, Darts, Volleyball, Cricket, Handball, Beach Volleyball, Badminton, Formula 1, Snooker, Politics, Motor Sport, Cycling, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Futsal, Chess, Moto GP, Water Polo, Speedway, Olympics


Betano has integrated several popular local payment systems, however the two most well-known ones would be Pyastack and Flutterwave. Therefore, you should be able to easily make deposits and withdraw your winnings regardless of what bank you are using.

Cryptocurrencies are currently not accepted and it doesn’t seem like there are any plans to add support for them.

The minimum amount you can deposit is ₦100.

The minimum amount you can withdraw from your player account is ₦250.

betano payment methods


Go to betano ng and sign in using your account credentials or social media profiles. If you don’t remember your password and are unable to log in, press the “Forgot password?” link and follow the given instructions.

betano login

Once you are logged in, you should see a green deposit button in the top right corner of the screen. You will then be moved over to the deposits page where you will see all the available payment methods.

The payments page will display a number of different payment methods. Take a minute to review them and press the one, which seems to be most suitable for you.

betano payment choice

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 account number


  1. Begin by navigating to the “Transactions” section. You can find it by clicking on your current account balance displayed in the top right corner of the screen, which will open a drop-down menu.
  2. In the menu, select the “Transactions” tab.
  3. Once you are on the transactions overview page, look for the “Withdrawal” button. Clicking on it will take you to the actual withdrawals page.
  4. On the withdrawals page, you will find various withdrawal options. We recommend choosing the “Bank Transfer” option, as it is the quickest and most straightforward method to withdraw your winnings.


When you submit a withdrawal request, it’s possible that an identity verification check will be required. In such cases, you will receive a notification instructing you to provide photocopies of specific documents to confirm your identity. This verification process must be completed before your withdrawal request can be processed.

Usually, you will be asked to provide the following information:

  • A photo of your identification document (national ID, voter ID card, picture page of international passport, drivers license)
  • Proof of residency, a recent document that would verify your current place of residence (utility bill, electricity bill, telephone bill, etc.)
  • A recent bank account statement, not older than three months


Betano has several main promo / bonus offers available on their Nigerian website. Of course, this is the initial welcome bonus along with a few stake insurance and stake refund offers that you will be able to claim later on.


The primary welcome offer, as mentioned earlier, is a 100% deposit bonus up to ₦100,000. This bonus is available to all new Nigerian players, provided that you initial deposit is a minimum of ₦100. When your deposit is confirmed, the bonus should be automatically added to your balance.

To convert your bonus funds into real money, you must wager them at least ten times with odds of 3.00 or higher. Bear in mind that virtual sports also contribute towards wagering requirements.

Wagering: 10x
Minimal deposit: ₦100
Bonus valid for 30 days
Required odds: 3.00 or higher


The only actual bonus offer available here is the welcome offer. However, even if you have already claimed it, it’s worth considering other promotions that you can make the most of.


With the accumulator bet boost promotion you have a chance to boost your football, basketball or tennis winnings by 70%. The more selections you add to your accumulator bet, the greater your potential bonus winnings become. The only requirement is that each selection must have odds of 1.20 or higher.

This bonus begins at 5% for accumulators with 3 selections and progressively grows with each additional selection. The maximum bonus achievable for your accumulator bet is 70% which you will get for having 14 or more selections.


This promotion is applicable to football, basketball and tennis accumulator bets with 5 or more selections. Some of you might already be familiar with such offers, they are often referred to as “One Game Cut” promotions.

If you place an accumulator bet with at least 5 selections and end up with only one losing selection – you get your entire stake back. In order to qualify, each selection in your accumulator bet should have the odds of 1.50 or higher.

Please note that this offer can only apply to the following betting markets:

  • Football – Match Result, Over / Under Total Goals, Both Teams to Score
  • Basketball – Winner, Handicap, Total Points
  • Tennis – Winner, Handicap Games, Match Total Sets (Over/Under)


If a game that you placed a bet on results in a draw (0-0 score) – you get your stake refunded. This is a football-only promotion that applies only to pre-match bats placed on “Half-Time/Full-Time” and “Correct Score” markets.

We tested Betano’s mobile website with three different devices – an iPhone 13, a Google Pixel 4 XL and an older Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Upon reviewing and testing their website, we can confidently say that they did a reasonably good job at optimizing their website for mobile devices.

Right now, we are going to look at their mobile website, yet they also have a mobile app, which is covered later in this section.


While testing Betano NG on the three devices we normally use for testing purposes, we did notice that the older Samsung device faced some performance issues. The two newer models swiftly loaded pages and fully utilized the available features.

Typically, most UI elements as well as a number of other assets are cached by your browser, which is what happened on newer devices. However, the older device experienced compatibility issues, leading to slower overall performance.

Even considering this, we still believe that over 90% of everyone reading this will have no trouble using Betano as most of you likely have relatively new phone models.

However, even in case you are using an older and perhaps slightly outdated phone – you will still be able to access the mobile website and use all main betting sections. The only two downsides that you might potentially experience are longer loading times and issues with opening video streams.

The user interface of the mobile website (and the mobile app) slightly differs from most other sportsbooks out there. Let’s break it down into several different sections and explore each one individually.

To start,  let’s focus on the website’s header, where you will immediately spot a green “Deposit” button along with your current balance. The header is primarily used to access account and payment related pages. You can open them by tapping your balance, which will bring up a drop-down menu with links.

The second navigation menu is located around the bottom of your screen – this is the place where you can switch between the different sections of the website. You will see sections like “Sport”, “Live”, “My Bets” and “Home” which are all quite self-explanatory. Additionally, there is one more button on this menu called “Explore”. It opens up a page that lists some of the popular upcoming games and tournaments along with new sportsbook offers.

Finally, if we open an ongoing game and look at the betting interface – we will see that it is very familiar and easy to understand. When you press on a selection it gets added to your betslip which will pop up from the bottom of your screen. The betslip offers all basic features for managing your stake and combining multiple selections into various bet types.

Second Step – Open the App and Sign in

Now, you should see the Betano app being available on your phone’s home screen. You can log in using your existing account if you have one or you can create an account directly in the app.


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 Betano’s online sports betting section looks like.

Let’s start off by visually splitting the website into four distinct sections, so we can review each one of them in greater detail.

  • Header section: in the desktop version, the header section serves as the main navigation hub that has links to most sections of the website. For example, you can switch between pre-match sports, live sports, virtuals and casino pages as well as access payment and account management pages.
  • Left-Side Menu: the navigation menu located on the right side of the screen starts with several links to ongoing offers and special bets. Followed by a list of popular upcoming games and ongoing tournaments. The actual sports selection menu is located in the next section which we will be looking at.
  • Betting Interface: the center of your screen is where all the action happens – this is the main betting UI. At the top, you will notice a horizontal list of sports where each sport has a number next to it. This is an indicator that shows you just how many games are open for betting. After selecting a sport you are interested in, a list of upcoming or ongoing games will appear below.
  • Betslip Section: the betslip section, as you might have already noticed, is located on the right side of the screen. When you pick a selection, it will be added to your betslip where you can input your stake and place a bet. When you have two or more selections, the “combo” section should become available, open it to see what possible system or combination bets you can place.
