iLOT is an original Nigerian betting brand that has been around since June 2021. They have massively grown since then and earned a good reputation in the local betting community. iLOT is operated by Lucky9ja Lotto Limited, who hold a valid sports betting permit issued by the National Lottery Regulatory Commission of Nigeria. This license ensures that they are well regulated and operate according to local rules and regulation, keeping your funds and personal information safe.

Being a local betting site, iLOT ensures that all payments are as quick and easy as possible. They support most local banks and a number of popular payment gateways. It is also worth mentioning that they have an impressive number of various promotions, bonuses and special offers.

What exactly draws more and more people to iLOT and why so many Nigerian sports fans use them as their “go-to” betting platform? There might be several reasons behind that and we are planning to go over each one of them in detail.

While most local betting sites are still run by companies from other countries, iLOT is actually Nigerian. The only other sportsbook that was created by a Nigerian company is BetBonanza.

What exactly draws more and more people to iLOT and why so many Nigerian sports fans use them as their “go-to” betting platform? There might be several reasons behind that and we are planning to go over each one of them in detail.


First off, as a newcomer, you will need to create and account, so let’s take a look at the registration process. There are two ways to create an account: using your phone number or your email address.

If you want to go with phone registration, you will need to enter your phone number and receive a confirmation code as a text message. Once you have the code, just enter it on the registration page and your account will be all set. You can later add personal details, and change your password.

If you decide to use your email address to create an account, the process is mostly the same. You will receive an email with a confirmation link, you need to open that link and your account will be all set. A follow-up email will be sent upon completing the previous step, that email will contain your password. You can later change your password.

Regardless of what registration option you decide to use – creating a new account will take roughly 1 minute.


iLOT’s welcome offer is structured in a rather interesting way – the amount you get as a bonus for your first deposit depends on the size of your deposit. The maximum bonus percentage is 100%, which you will be credited to your account if you deposit between ₦10,000 and ₦20,000. Deposits between ₦2,000 and ₦10,000 will get an 80% welcome bonus and deposits under ₦2,000 come with a 50% bonus.

Now while the actual percentages aren’t as high as you might have seen elsewhere – the wagering conditions are what makes the actual difference. The turnover requirement for the 50% bonus is 5x and for the 70% one it is 6x. Your bonus funds have to be wagered using accumulator bets with three or more selections. Each selection has to have the odds of 1.30 or higher – this is the lowest odds requirement we’ve seen so far.


The good thing about local betting brands is phone support – most Nigerian bookmakers offer phone support. iLOT is not an exception, they have two support phone numbers, which you can call to get assistance whenever you are stuck or have questions.

In addition to phone support, you can send an old fashion email. This might be useful when you need to send over some files like screenshots or transaction confirmations.

Finally, you can get assistance via Whatsapp, which is also quite handy because most of us use it daily for personal needs anyway.


At the moment iLOT offers betting on more than ten sports and we are definitely expecting them to expand their sports portfolio going forward. All popular betting sports are here, so don’t worry, you won’t miss out on anything. We are going to take a closer look at the football betting section to give you a good understanding of what you can expect here.

On any given day you will see over 800 football games being available – this includes all top-tier tournaments as smaller ones from all over the world. The variety of betting markets per game is quite impressive, as most games will have over 300 markets to choose from. This is a lot more than what you would see on most locally run betting sites.

combination markets


Live betting is, of course, also available and seems to be as good as the pre-match section, which we talked about above. Depending on the time of the year – between 50 and 100 live football games are covered throughout the day. Each game will have at least 70 markets open trading at any point while the game is live. Betting is open up until the last seconds of any game.

Let’s take a look at a real game from the Club Friendlies tournament. As the game starts and goes into the first half – you have 168 markets open for betting. Closer to half-time the number of markets decreases for obvious reasons, yet still, 68 are open. Also, iLOT allows placing small bets, so if you are looking where to bet with 50 Naria, you might just find what you are looking for here.

The second half starts with over 100 markets open, 149 to be precise. Throughout the game the number of open markets is consistently over 80. It stays like that up until the very last minutes of the game.


In addition to betting on regular sports, you can also explore virtuals. If you don’t know what virtual are – they are simulated virtual sporting events, where you can place bets as you would with real games. iLOT has several variations of virtual football, you can choose between for virtual leagues: England League, Italy League, Spain League and Virtual cup. This is a good alternative to real sports if you want to take a break and try something new.

You can make card payments, use internet banking or simply make a direct bank transfer to add money to your player account. In order to request a withdrawal, you will need to link your iLOT player profile with your bank account.

Alternatively, you can use the Palmpay app to add funds to your iLOT account.

The minimum amount you can deposit is ₦100.

The minimum amount you can withdraw is ₦1,000.

ilot payment methods

iLOT withdrawals are quite simple and require you to have a valid bank account linked to your player profile. In case you haven’t yet done that – let’s go over the process together, so you will know exactly what you need to do. The process is straightforward and consists of three main steps: verify your email address, verify your phone number and set up a withdrawal password.

When you are logged in – you should see your current balance in the top right corner of the screen. Press on your balance to go to the account management page. You will then see a “Withdraw” button, press it to start the process.

If this is your first time – you will be asked to pass a security check with your email address. Receive an OTP (one-time password) to your email address and enter it on iLOT.

The next step is to bind your phone number to your player account. It is done in the exact same way – receive an OTP as a text message and enter in on the website or app. Now your phone number will be bound to your iLOT account.

verify phone number

Finally, you will be asked to set up a withdrawal password. This is a new password, separate from your regular account password – you will be asked to enter it every time you request a withdrawal.

Once you complete all the above steps, you can add your bank account to your player profile and request withdrawals whenever you have sufficient funds in your iLOT wallet.


Usually, iLOT are quite easily able to verify your identity based on the information you supply at different stages of the registration / withdrawal process. Nevertheless, in some cases there might be some missing information or some additional details that must be confirmed.

In such cases iLOT might ask you to submit a number of documents to verify your identity. The things you will be asked to provide are:

  • 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

Please keep in mind that in most cases you will not be asked to supply this information. You should only do so if contacted by an iLOT representative.


iLOT have done a good job with their promo offers – both, new and existing players will always have something good to look forward to. You can get deposit bonuses on a regular basis as well as free bets and accumulator bet boosts. Let’s take a look at each offer in detail below.


All new players can get a bonus for making their first deposit. How big is your bonus going to be depends on the size of your deposit. If your first deposit is under ₦2,000 – your bonus will be 50% (5x wagering). If you decide to make a larger deposit between ₦10,000 and ₦20,000 – you will get a 70% (6x wagering) bonus. If your deposit is between ₦10,000 and ₦20,000 – your bonus will be 100% (8x wagering). In all three cases, your bonus will be valid for 30 days.

One of the coolest things about this offer is the minimum odds requirement for wagering your bonus funds – it is just 1.30. Wagering has to be done using accumulator bets with three or more selections.

Wagering for 50%: 5x
Wagering for 70%: 6x
Wagering for 100%: 8x
Minimal deposit: ₦500
Bonus valid for 30 days
Required odds: 1.3 or higher


Even if you had already used your welcome bonus – there is much more to look forward to. You can claim all sorts of different bonus coupons, odds boosts and free bets. There are also guessing games that you can play for free, but win real money prizes.


If you are an experienced bettor – you already know what this offer is about. If you don’t, please allow us to explain. You can get your potential multibet winnings boosted by simply adding more selections to your bet. The bonus starts with 5% for 5 selections and gradually increases with every added selection. The maximum bonus is 80%, which will be added to your bet if you have 20 or more selections.


This is a simple one, just download the app and install it on your phone. When installed, log in using the account you already have. Once you first sign into the application, you will be given two coupons: one for ₦50 and the other one for ₦120. Only one coupon can be used at a time, coupons cannot be combined.


There are two prediction games that all players can participate in. These games differ in complexity, so the chances of winning are also different. Nevertheless, the harder it is to win – the higher is your reward.


Try to guess what the exact score of an upcoming game will be and get a chance to win a real money prize. The prize pool is ₦50,000 and it will be shared among all players who were able to correctly predict the final score. Everyone can participate in this game without staking any real money.


The second prediction game has a significantly larger prize pool of ₦10,000,000 – you will need to predict (1st half and full time) scores of 4 different games. For each correctly predicted score you will get a number of “points”. Top 20% of players who get the most points will get a guaranteed share of the prize pool.


You can invite your friends to play at iLOT and get a bonus for doing that. The rules are simple – once your friend registers an account and verifies your phone number, a bonus will be added to your account. This bonus has to be staked once before it can be withdrawn.

It is fair to say that iLOT mainly focuses on mobile betting, as some sections of the desktop website mimic mobile functionality. From our perspective, that is totally fine as most of you will, in any case, use your mobile phones to bet, make payments and request withdrawals. There is an app, which we will talk about in a bit, but first let’s take a look at the mobile website.

We tested iLOT’s mobile website with two different devices – an iPhone 11, a Google Pixel 2 XL and an older Samsung Galaxy Note 9. We did that to see how it will work on older devices and compare it with newer ones. As you may have already expected, the newer phones passed all tests with flying colors, however we are also delighted to tell you that the older Samsung phone did well too. We believe this was achieved thanks to the way the website is built – all static page elements will be cached by your browser on your first visit. This significantly reduces page loading times and overall traffic usage.


As we already mentioned earlier, iLOT has an Android app, which you can download from their website. You can log in to the app using your already existing player account. Also, players who open the app for the first time will get two bonus coupons, which is just another reason to give it a go.

The app itself mimics the mobile version of the website, so there is not much we can add to what has already been said before. Perhaps one additional thing to mention here is that having the app installed reduces loading time and traffic usage even more.

iLOT App Download (APK) and Installation

As we already mentioned before, the app can be downloaded directly from the official website. Having said that, in order to see the download link – you should already have an account and you should be signed in. If you are not yet a registered player, we recommend first creating an account.

The app requires a version of Android of 4.0.3 or higher.

If you are ready to proceed with downloading and installing the apps, we’ve broken this down into several easy steps that you can follow at your own pace.

First Step – Download the APK File

When you sign in with your iLOT player account on your smartphone, you will see a yellow “app download” button around the top of the screen. Press that button and you will be taken to the iLOT app page. Now, select the “Android app” option to start your download.

Alternatively, you can use our direct download link right here.

ilot app download
Second Step – Install the App

Once the app is downloaded you will get another pop-up asking whether you want to open it. Press the “open” button to proceed.

At this stage your phone can give you a warning that the app is from an unknown source, so it requires additional approval. Chrome will give you an option to go over to the settings page.

On the settings page, you will need to enable the “Allow from this source” switch.

Once you do that, you need to tap the installation file again to install it on your device.

ilot app install
Step Three – Open the App and Sign in

Now, you should see the iLOT 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.

iLOT App for iPhone

This was quite a big surprise for us, but iLOT have an official iPhone app that is available on Apple’s App store. Since the process of getting an app verified and listed with Apple is difficult and lengthy – most betting brands don’t go for it. iLOT isn’t a large company, so it is quite impressive that they went the extra mile and created an application for iPhone users.

iLOT iPhone App Download and Installation

Downloading this app works exactly the same as with any other iPhone app out there. Still, to make sure that you don’t run into any difficulties – we have a step-by-step guide that you can follow.

You should have an iOS version of 11.0 or later to run this app.

First Step – Download the iOS App

The official iLOT bet app for iPhones can be downloaded on the App Store. To find it, simply open the app store on your device and type “ilot” into the search bar.

Alternatively, you can use our direct App store link that will take you directly to the download page.

Once you find the app, just download and install it the same way as any other application.

ilot iphone app
Second Step – Open the App and Sign in

Now, you should see the iLOT 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 iLOT’s online sports betting section looks like.

The desktop user interface follows most industry wide standards, so anyone who is at least relatively familiar with betting should feel comfortable here. Nevertheless, there are a couple of cool features, which we would like to highlight.

First of all, we really like how sliders are implemented – you can filter upcoming games based on their start times using a slider. Usually, you would need to select dates and times and that might be a bit irritating, so having a slider makes this way easier.

The other thing we really liked about the UI is their odds filter, which is also implemented as a slider. Again, you will not need to type anything manually, simply move the slider to your desired odds values and that’s it.

In order to get the welcome bonus added to your account, simply make a deposit and make sure that your first deposit is ₦500 or more. Deposits of less than ₦500 will not activate this bonus.

There are two variations of the welcome bonus and as you make your deposit, you will see how big your bonus will be.
