They have one of the most technically advanced platforms, which will work like a charm with pretty much any device out there.

Possible Registration Options

1xBet offers three main ways to create an account: mobile phone registration, email registration and social media registration. We are going to show you all three options in detail and will tell you what exactly you need to create an account. The process itself is quick, so don’t worry – you will be all set in no time!

Phone Registration

As you can already guess based on the name – you will use your mobile phone to register. This is the quickest and potentially the easiest way to create an account. You will need to enter your phone number and press the “Send SMS” button. Wait 10-20 seconds and you will get a text message with a confirmation code. Enter the code you received into the “Confirmation code” box and press the “Confirm” button. That’s it, you’re almost there – now simply press that “Register” button and your new account will be all set.

You will not need to enter any other information at this stage, you will be able to start betting as is. We do however recommend you to complete your profile in order to have access to bonuses and other offers.

Email Registration

Email registration is the option which most people go with – this is the most common registration option, which mostly anyone is used to. You will be asked to fill out a relatively standard registration form with some personal information required to create an account. The information you need to supply is: your state, city, email address, phone number, first name, last name, date of birth, when your ID was issued and your password. Once you enter all those details, hit the “Register” button and you will be all set. You can already use your account to bet, the only thing you have to keep in mind is – you need to verify your email address within 72 hours.

Go to your email inbox, find the verification email sent by 1xBet (might need to check your spam folder) and copen the link in that email. It is best to complete this step as soon as you register, just to make sure you won’t forget about this later on.

Social Media and Messenger Registration

The third and final way to create a 1xBet account is to use your social media accounts or Telegram. In fact, the social media options available are not popular in Nigeria and it is unlikely that anyone uses them at all. The only other option on the list is Telegram, so if you have it on your phone – you can register using your Telegram account, it takes just a couple of minutes.

Press on the Telegram icon and you will be forwarded to the messenger app, where a new “1xBet” channel will open. You will need to grant 1xBet access to your Telegram information in order to complete the registration process.

Again, same as in the two previous paragraphs – we recommend you to complete your profile information as soon as you register. This way your account will be secure and you will be always able to recover it in case you lose access for any reason.

What Will You Get at 1xBet as a New Player?

1xBet likely has the largest number of bonuses and special offers among Nigerian betting operators in general. We don’t think it is worth listing all of them in detail here, because you can always find the most up-to-date information on the 1xBet promotions page.

welcome offer

This page tells you how to create a 1xBet account and claiming the welcome bonus can be considered as a part of the actual registration process. Having that in mind, we will only focus on that offer for now.

Welcome Offer

All new players from Nigeria can get a 300% bonus up to ₦145,600. There are three variations of this bonus depending on the size of your first deposit. Deposits of up to ₦20,800 get a 200% bonus, deposits between ₦20,801 and ₦41,600 got a 250% bonus and deposits over ₦41,601 got the full 300%.

The minimum deposits you need to make in order to activate this offer is ₦400.

These bonus funds will be credited to your account in two parts and the minimum deposit you have to make in order to claim the bonus. Half of your bonus funds have to be wagered on sports – the bonus is valid for 30 days and you have to wager it 5 times with the odds of 1.40 or higher. Each bet needs to have at least three selections.

The other half of your welcome bonus funds have to be wagered on the “1xGames” section. This is not directly related to sports, so not something we will cover right now. You can of course always read more about that on the promotions page.

Is there an App?

1xBet has an award-winning app, which you can download on their official website right after you register. The application is rather small, so you can quickly download and install it. Additionally, it will not take up a lot of space on your device and will help you reduce your overall mobile data consumption. The app has all the same features, which you would have access to on the website, so you don’t have to worry about missing out – it’s all there. Quite often a betting app is available only for Android devices, that is not the case here, you can also find 1xBet’s betting app in Apple’s app store.

Frequently Asked Question

How to Open the Mobile Website?

Some users report that when they go to their mobile phone opens up the desk version of the website. If you are encountering a similar issue – there’s an easy way to switch over to the mobile website. Simply scroll all the way down to the footer and find a section called “Useful Links” and press the “Mobile Version” link.

What to do if the Confirmation SMS Doesn’t Arrive?

It may happen that when you try to register using your mobile phone, the confirmation SMS will not arrive. You will have an option to send it again in a couple of minutes. If the text message still doesn’t come, it would be best to try using a different registration option. In this case we can recommend going with email registration.

Do I Need to Verify or Confirm Anything?

You don’t need to verify or confirm anything to start betting. If you registered using your email address, you will need to verify it within 72 hours. We recommend doing that as soon as you register, otherwise it is easy to forget about that. Also, make sure to fill out your profile information before requesting your first withdrawal – this will significantly speed things up.

Bet Responsibly

We mention this in every article we have and we feel it is our responsibility to emphasize the importance of your mental health. Hopefully you love sports as much as we do and if that is the case, betting is just another way to make your favorite sporting events even more exciting. Please keep in mind that sportsbooks are places where you should have fun, they should not be used as a means to resolve difficult financial situations.

Having mentioned that, please make sure that you stay in control of your finances – don’t bet more than you can afford. If your betting hobby forces you to make budget cuts in other aspects of your life, then it might be a good time to take a break. It is also important to listen to your close ones – they will be the first ones to notice if something is not right. If your family is starting to worry about your hobby, that is another indication that you might need to take a break.

In case you find yourself no longer in control of your betting hobby – then it is time to seek assistance. Luckily there are places where you can get help 24/7, one which we can personally recommend is They have trained professionals who you can talk to as well as support groups, where you can discuss your issues with other people. This is all available online, so it doesn’t matter where you are located as long as you have internet access.
