Parimatch Nigeria App Download and Overview
Parimatch is a very well-known brand, they have a good reputation in the sports betting community and close ties with many top-tier sporting organizations. For example, they are the official partners and sponsors of Chelsea and Leicester City football clubs. All this naturally puts Parimatch in one of the top positions among other locally available betting companies.
Parimatch Nigeria is an officially registered local brand, who hold a valid license issued by the National Lottery Regulatory Commission. Considering all the above factors – they are, by all means, a proper Nigerian betting site.
As you can already expect, Parimatch has immense financial resources at their disposal. This allowed them to build betting apps specific to each region they operate in. Nigeria is not an exception here, all local sports fans can use their betting app, which was designed and tailored specifically for the Nigerian public.
If you want to know more about the app, how it works, where to download it and how to install it – you’ve come to the right place. We are going to cover each one of those things step-by-step, so you could follow along at your own pace.
Parimatch App for Android
The Android application can be downloaded only from the official Parimatch website, so you won’t be able to find it on Google Play. You should also be mindful of the system requirements – your Android OS version should be at least 5 if you want to run this app.
Parimatch (APK) Download and Installation
As we already mentioned earlier, the official app can be downloaded only from the actual website, we will also drop a link to where you can find it. Follow that link and the instructions below to download and install the official Parimatch app.
First Step – Download the APK File
Open the mobile website in your browser, scroll to the bottom of the page and find the “Mobile App” link. This is a direct link, so the download should start immediately. If you don’t currently have an account with Parimatch, we recommend creating one before downloading the app, as the registration process in the application takes a bit more time.
If you already have an account, you can use this direct download link.
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.
Step Three – Open the App and Sign in
Now, you should see the Parimatch 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. If you want to know more about how exactly to sign in – you might want to check this section below.
Parimatch App for iPhone
If you are an iPhone user – you should approach this from a slightly different angle. If you go to the App Store and search for Parimatch, you will see that there is an app available, however this is not what you need. If you want to have Parimatch on your phone’s home screen, you will need to go through their official website.
Getting Parimatch on Your iPhone
Like we said before, Parimatch has different apps for each region they operate in. If you download the app you see in the App Store, you won’t be able to log in using your Nigerian account. Having that in mind, for Nigeria, there currently is no app and you can get from the App Store. Nevertheless, you can still get Parimatch onto your home screen, this will allow you to access it in just a couple of taps.
First Step – Open Parimatch in Safari
First, you will need to open Parimatch mobile website (use the link below) in your Safari browser. If you have a different browser set as the default one, then simply copy the link and insert it into the address bar in Safari. You will also need to have a player account, if you don’t yet have one – this is a good moment to register.
Second Step – Add to Home Screen
Tap the share button on the bottom (in the middle) toolbar of your phone. You will then see a pop-up window where you will have an option to add it to the home screen. As we said earlier, this isn’t exactly an app, but will make accessing Parimatch much easier for you.
Step Three – Open the App and Sign in
Now, you should see Parimatch 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. If you want to know more about how exactly to sign in – you might want to check this section below.
How to Bet with Parimatch App?
The betting process consists of all the same steps you would follow when using the mobile website. To be honest, most of you don’t need us to tell you this – as you are already fairly experienced bettors. Still, some of you might be new to this or might have been using other betting interfaces. If you run into any difficulties when trying to place a bet, try following the instructions given in this section.
First Step – Open the Sports Section and Find a Game
Once you open the app, you will need to sign in with your player account. When signed in, navigate to the “sports” section on the bottom bar of the app. Next, find a sport that you are interested in and a game that you would like to bet on. Each game will have a number next to it (+50 in our example) that indicates how many markets are currently open for betting. Tap that number to open the game itself.
Step Two – Find a Market and Selection to Bet on
Now, that you found a game and opened it – you will need to find a market and an outcome (selection) that you would like to bet on. You can either scroll the entire list or you can use one of the filters to separate markets based on their types. When you find an outcome you are happy with, tap it and it will get added to your betslip.
Step Three – Open the Betslip and Add Your Stake
Finally, once you decide what bet you want to place, it is time to add your stake. Tap the betslip icon on the bottom bar of the app, to see what you currently have there. This is the point where you can add your stake, in other words, how much you want to bet. Make sure to have enough funds in your player account. To finally place your bet, press the green “Place Bet” button after adding your stake amount.
Parimatch Casino App
Similar to many other sportsbooks out there, in addition to the sports betting section, Parimatch also has an entire online casino available. This is, of course, not their main focus area, however you will still have a decent selection of slots, live casino and table games available for you to choose from.
If you are looking to try your luck by playing casino games, we have to warn you that these are based purely on luck. However, if you approach them strictly as a fun activity – you should be in a good position.
Parimatch App Login

This is the app, open the app and tap on the “Log in” button in the top right corner of the screen. You can sign in using your phone number, email address or account ID – if you don’t yet have an account, it can be created on the same page.
