OVERVIEW

OgaBet is one of those local Nigerian betting brands, which usually have quite a lot to show if given a closer look. Most reviews, which we have seen online don’t have a good enough overview and don’t provide enough information to help build a realistic picture of what you can expect here.

First of all, we have to mention, that OgaBet is not only an online bookmaker – they also have retail locations and this is usually considered a good sign as it helps the brand build a better relationship with their players. OgaBet holds a valid sports betting operating license issued by the Lagos State Lotteries Board. You can check this license yourself on the regulator’s official website and this means that their retail betting shops and their online betting site are completely legal and it is safe to use them.

When you open up their website you will see that the design of their interface is easy to navigate and it is generally in line with what most industry-leading betting sites have. This means you will not have to waste any time on getting used to their layout or navigation as a new player.

REGISTRATION

We were delighted to see how easy and effortless the registration process is. There are two possible ways to register: “short” registration and “full” registration. Short registration will require you to enter only your phone number and new password – you will then be sent a text message with a code that you need to enter in order to complete your registration. The “full” registration option will require you to also add your full name and email address. Either way the entire registration process is not going to take you more than 2 minutes to complete.

WELCOME OFFER

OgaBet currently don’t have a traditional welcome bonus offer, however they do have something that is as good as a deposit bonus or possibly even better – every week you will be getting free bets, the size of your free bet will depend on the amount you staked throughout the week. What is noteworthy here, is the fact that unlike most welcome bonuses, the conditions to convert these free bets into real withdrawable funds are quite realistic, we will look into this in more detail in the ”Promotions” section below.

BETTING MARKETS AND ODDS

OgaBet sports selection is enough to fulfill most people’s sports betting needs – you have around 20 different sports to choose from and the average number of available games per sport is in line with what you would expect to see on most well-known betting brands. For example, if we look a football, at any given time of day you will likely see around a 1000 upcoming games available for betting and most of them will usually have 90+ open markets, so as you can see there is more than enough betting opportunity here. If you go over the live betting section and have a look at what you can find there – you will see, that there are always live games available and this is very important, because OgaBet are a relatively small brand, so this really shows us how hard they are working to offer us a good quality betting product.

PROMOTIONS AT OGABET

OgaBet don’t currently have a welcome bonus for new users, like you would find on some other betting sites, however to be honest those welcome bonuses usually have very difficult wagering conditions and are extremely unlikely to be eventually converted into real money. Instead OgaBet have regular offers for all of their existing players, these are offers like free bets, odds boosts, accumulator bet bonuses and more, we will look at some of the more noteworthy offers below. See other betting sites with free bets.

OGABET MOBILE

OgaBet seems to be exceptionally well-optimized for mobile devices even despite the fact that they don’t currently have a mobile app. We did some tests with several different mobile phones to provide you with the fullest possible overview. Now let’s dive deeper into the things we were able to discover.

The general user interface is compact, simple and rather informative – you can see how many markets are open in any given game without having to open the game itself. Once you do open a game you will see an interactive scoreboard, where you can watch live game stats. Each market type is placed in its own dropdown, so the entire page looks nice and tidy.

Finally, we can take a look at performance – we tested OgaBet with an older budget smartphone and a newer high-end one. Obviously, there were no issues betting with the newer phone however, the older one surprisingly did quite good as well. Such good performance is related to the fact that OgaBet’s site caches all static page elements in your browser. This ensures quicker loading speed and less traffic usage.

OGABET 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 OgaBet’s online sports betting section looks like.

OgaBets appears to be keeping it nice and simple – their design is easy to navigate and is generally quite pleasant for the eye. Their website appears to be well optimized for most at least relatively modern phones and in addition to that they have an Android app, which will make your betting experience even better. There currently is no live streaming functionality, however most live games come with an interactive score board, where you can see everything, that is happening in the game in real-time or retrospectively review the full timeline of a game up to the current moment. The actual betting section allows you to change the layout, which you might want to do depending on the size of your screed and it allows you to filter available markets based on their types or select the ones you are interested inform a drop-sown menu.
