PARIPESA BOOKMAKER REVIEW
Paripesa is an international betting site, which started accepting players from Nigeria in late 2020 after acquiring a license from the Oyo State Gaming Board. Given they already have experience running a successful sports betting business it is only logical that the Nigerian site will deliver a good overall experience to its players, however let’s still have a closer look at their services to make sure this is actually the case.
Paripesa website runs on a platform, which you may have already seen with other reputable bookmakers out there, so this guarantees that everything loads quickly and even though there is no app – the website is exceptionally well-optimized for mobile devices.
You will be able to make deposits with almost any local bank and of course all transactions are done in Naira, so there is no need to get all confused with exchange rates. Apart from regular currency you are also free to use all most popular cryptocurrencies.
All of the above is already a good explanation of why thousands of Nigerian sports fans visit Paripesa on a regular basis. Nevertheless, let’s dive deeper to see what else we can find here.
Registering an account at Paripesa is quick and the only thing you need to have in order to get started is a valid phone number. You will be required to verify your phone number with a text message and after that your login credentials will be sent to you in a follow-up text message – at this point you can already log in and start playing.
The second possible registration option is “one-click” registration – all you have to do is literally just click a button and your account will be created. Your new username and password will be automatically generated and you will see them in a pop-up on the screen. You can choose to save them as a picture or text file on your device or get them emailed to you. The entire registration process will take you around a minute to complete.
We strongly recommend to keep all your contact information valid and up to date. This will ensure that you will be able to easily recover your password in case you ever forget it. Even if your contact details are not up to date, you can always get in touch with support and they should be able to figure something out.
Paripesa also has a nice welcome offer to help new players get started – upon making your first deposit you can get a 100% bonus up to ₦100,000 to be used on sports betting. The minimum deposit you have to make in order to claim the bonus is ₦450. Even though the amount might not seem that large at first, the true value of the bonus is determined by how realistic are the wagering requirements – Paripesa welcome bonus has to be wagered only 5 times. Additional conditions state that your bonus bets should have at least three selections and should have odds of at least 1.40. These conditions stand out as a lot more reasonable when compared with other Nigerian betting brands.
If you ever run into any trouble you always have the option to use the 24/7 live support chat to get assistance, as well as that in cases you can also submit a form with your question or concern – chats are, of course instant and submitted tickets receive a response within 24 hours. We would also like to add a note from ourselves – in order to give a full picture of the offered services we had several interactions with Paripesa support ourselves and we can confirm that they speak good English and approach all issues in a polite and professional manner.
BETTING MARKETS AND ODDS
You can bet on over 30 different sports at Paripesa and they generally have quite an impressive offer of pre-match games available – at any given day you are likely to find over 2000 pre-match games across different sports, which you can bet on. To give you a better understanding of what to expect we can have a look at football betting as an example – high profile football games normally have over a 1000 markets to choose from, while less popular leagues may have from 500 to 700.
Live betting at Paripesa appears to be as impressive, as you may understand the number of live games largely depends on seasons, yet if we take the average monthly number – there are over a 1000 live games traded monthly.
We would also like to highlight the fact that a lot of games have an impressive number of various special and combination bet types available. You will be able to bet on things like the minute of the first goal, team to score + total, goal intervals, correct score groupings and much more.

ACCUMULATOR BET ODDS BOOST
Every day Paripesa offers an “Accumulator of the Day” combination, which will have its odds increase by 10% if you choose to place that bet.
You can insure your bets – depending on your stake, you can pay some extra money to “insure” your bet and get your stake back in case it loses. Let’s have a look at an example of how this works: say you placed a ₦5,000 bet with odds of 2.00 – your potential winnings are ₦10,000. Now you want to insure 100% of your bet, so you pay another ₦2,500, which is taken out of your current available balance.
If your bet wins – you will be paid the full ₦10,000. Given that you had already paid ₦2,500 as an insurance, your overall profit will be ₦7,500 – if you use this functionality wisely it can significantly help you manage your risks while betting.
If your bet loses – you will get your original ₦5,000 stake back. Given, that you had already paid ₦2,500 to insure your bet – your overall loss is ₦2,500 instead of the full ₦5,000.
BONUSES FOR LOSING STREAKS
If you have a series of unfortunate bets Paripesa will give you a bonus to make your day at least a little bit better – the bonus is applicable to players who had a series of 20 or more losing bets in a row. The bonus amount you are going to receive depends on the size of your lost bets.

Paripesa has a great mobile app, which you can download, install and start betting, however the app is currently only available on Android devices. Apple users will still need to go to the mobile website. The mobile website is very well optimized for mobile phones, a large portion of elements for every page are identical and static. This means that they will be cached by your phone and will not take up any traffic each time you go to Paripesa.ng or navigate between pages.
The interface design is similar to most betting apps, so in this regard you will likely not even notice the difference. In addition to that – you don’t have to download and install anything, which allows you to get started significantly quicker.
As we already mentioned, the app is currently only available for Android devices. If you have an Android phone, go ahead and check out the app. Clock the download link to create an account, download the app, install it, login with your new account and start betting. The app itself is not that big – just over 20MB, so it should easily fit on your phone even if you don’t have that much free space left.
PARIPESA DESKTOP SITE OVERVIEW
We are going to take a closer look at the live betting section – as you open up any game you will see a scoreboard, which has a number of useful details such as standings and lineups as well as a full timeline of the game, allowing you will know what happened at which point in the game even if you opened it up half-way through.
The market view sits in an interface you should already be used to as well – you can configure the layout, you can sort markets base on their types and categories and you can search for a specific market using a search box.
