FRAPAPA BET BOOKMAKER REVIEW
WHAT MAKES FRAPAPA A GOOD BETTING SITE
Frapapa has been on our radar ever since it first opened up back in mid-2021. We did not put out our review back then because we first wanted to see how players and sports fans will react to them. Now it is clear that most players who come here end up staying for the long term. We haven’t found any substantial and / or unresolved complaints anywhere online, so we would like to tell you a bit more about Frapapa and what they have to offer.
Frapapa holds licenses issued by two main local regulatory bodies: the National Lottery Regulatory Commission of Nigeria and the Lagos State Lottery Board. This means they are well-regulated and their terms and conditions are in line with the law. Having this in place ensures a certain degree of transparency that you might not always see elsewhere.
Frapapa has a really good-looking user interface design – the colors and the layout are rather simple, yet at the same time all seem to be really well put together. This was originally the reason why we were so interested in reviewing them. Based on our estimations, over 10,000 players visit Frapapa on a daily basis – a large portion of those visitors are returning players. Let’s try to find out what makes people want to return, how Frapapa are better than other local betting sites and whether they are worth your time.
As a newcomer, the first thing you will have to do to get – is to create an account. Let’s take a look at the registration process step-by-step to understand what is exactly expected from us here. You will be required to fill out a short registration form, the details required there are: your name, email address, phone number and your new password. After submitting the form you will receive an email with a verification link, open that link to verify your email address and you are good to go. From now on your phone number is your login. The entire registration process will take you no more than 2 minutes to complete.
Frapapa has two separate offers, which new players can benefit from. First of all, you have three welcome deposit bonuses and secondly, you can get a free bet if you download and install their app – let’s see what these offers are all about.
The welcome offer is split into three separate parts, altogether you can get a 300% bonus up to ₦300,000 – this is one of the biggest welcome offers among local bookmakers at the moment. The first part is a 150% bonus up to ₦150,000. The second and third bonuses are 75% of your deposit up to ₦75,000. The minimum amount you need to deposit in order to activate the bonus is ₦300. Your bonus funds have to be wagered 10 times in order to become a real money balance. Each selection in your bet has to have the odds of 1.40 or higher and the entire bet has to have the odds of 3.00 or higher in order to count toward wagering.
The second offer new users can claim is a ₦1,000 free bet for downloading the mobile app. You will need to press the registration button, create an account and download the app. Once you successfully download the app – a free bet will be credited to your account within the next 24 hours.
Support is a vital part of any user-facing service like this, it is often overlooked, however we would like to stop here for a moment. Frapapa are one of the few Nigerian betting sites, who have an actual phone number that you can call. This is very handy, especially when you are dealing with a complex issue that is difficult to describe in writing. Apart from that they also have regular communication channels like chat and email, which you can use whenever you might need some assistance.
We used their live chat option on a couple of occasions to ask general questions related to promotions and payments. On every occasion, representatives that we got to talk to were polite, professional and well-informed. Having said that, we are happy to say that support at Frapapa has left a good impression on us.
BETTING MARKETS AND ODDS
Currently Frapapa offers betting on over 25 different sports, numerous competitions and various tournaments all around the globe. We will try to show you some specific real-life examples of what their sportsbook offers. Let’s use football as an example, simply because this is the most popular sports betting-wise in Nigeria.
At any given day you will see over 1,200 football games being available for betting – on an average a single game would have around 150 markets open. The number of markets will obviously vary depending on the league. Smaller leagues would have up to 100 markets and top-tier tournaments can have over 350 markets for you to choose from. It is also worth mentioning that there is usually a good variety of various special bets and combination markets.
The live betting section of Frapapa is also quite impressive – over 100 football games are usually traded throughout the day, during the weekend it is even more. Every game will have between 30 and 50 markets consistently open as it progresses. Live markets are usually open up until the last minute of the game and cashout is also available.

Frapapa approached mobile optimization as one of their key focuses – their mobile website looks good, loads fast and is extremely easy to navigate. Everything seems to be in the right place, so even if you are here for the first time – you will have no trouble finding whatever you need. Overview pages are informative and show you how many markets are open in each individual game. The same applies to each sport – you will have a clear overview of how many games are open for betting for each individual region. All of this saves you time, which you would have otherwise spent jumping from page to page.
We would also like to briefly go over their website from a technical perspective. If you look at what is under the hood, you will see that the website re-uses most static page elements where possible. This means that most of them will be cached by your browser and will significantly reduce loading times and traffic usage when opening new pages.
If you are into apps – there is a Frapapa betting app, which you can download from their official website. The app is quite small, so you should be able to quickly download and install it. In general, the application mimics whatever functionality the mobile website has and you will likely not be able to tell the difference between the two. The main benefit here is the fact that having the app installed, things might load for you even faster. Although if you have a good and stable connection – you won’t notice any substantial difference.
FRAPAPA DESKTOP SITE OVERVIEW
Frapapa has a visually pleasing user interface – everything works well together and in addition to that the UI is pretty functional. Generally, the interface is similar to what the industry standard is, so the navigation is straightforward and intuitive. Even if you are a newcomer or a novice at sports betting – you should be still able to quickly find what you need.
The functional sections of the desktop website are informative, this allows you to save quite a bit of time, which you would otherwise spend on clicking and scrolling. For example, the sports selection menu will show you how many games are currently available for each individual sport. If you open up a sport – you will see the number of games per region. Each region will show you the number of games per league. The same applies to individual games – overview pages allow you to see the number of open markets per game, without having to open that game.
The actual betting interface allows you to filter markers based on a number of pre-configured categories. Nevertheless, there is one thing that we found to be missing – there is no search box, so you can find a market within a given game by typing in its name. In any case, given all the strong sides we outlined above – this seems like a relatively small drawback and we hope that Frapapa would add this functionality in the nearest future.
FRAPAPA AFFILIATE PROGRAM
Similar to mostly any other sportsbook out there – Frapapa have an affiliate program, that allows you to earn together with them. Their affiliate program is managed by Income Access, you can promote their brand and earn a commission for every new player you bring in.
