LionsBet is a relatively new Nigerian online betting site. It promises big bonuses, a simple betting platform, fast mobile betting and industry leading odds. The question is, does it deliver? Our expert LionsBet review will soon tell you.

About LionsBet

Launched in 2016, LionsBet hit the market with a storming first deposit matched bonus of 100% up to ₦100,000 which it claims to be the largest in the industry. In addition to an array of pre-match and live betting sports markets, customers can also enjoy a selection of virtual sports and a number of casino-based games.

LionsBet is making a name for itself through a glittering collection of promotions and a frequent player rewards scheme. Its site is SSL protected, so customers can trust that their data is safe, and it’s fully licenced by the Lagos State Lotteries Board.

Noteworthy Features

A modern day online betting site needs more than a handful of promotions to keep players active on its site. LionsBet appreciates this, which is why it offers a number of other features, including:

Free Browsing

If you’re a MTN subscriber, the world of LionsBet is yours to explore - for free! You don’t need any data to do this. Now you can place your bets whenever you wish. All other networks are coming soon, so check out the website through this link to see if your provider is listed.

Cash Out

Want to take control of your bets? At LionsBet you can with full and partial Cash Out. This means you can settle your ticket before the end of an event, or before an accumulator has finished. Maybe you want to lock in a profit on a ticket that is currently winning or you need to escape a bet that looks like it will lose. Cash Out is the answer.

LionsBet Markets & Odds

You’ll find 24 sports to bet on at this booking site, so whatever your taste, you’ll find something appealing. This is a list of what’s available:

Soccer
Tennis
Basketball
Ice Hockey
Handball























LionsBet Soccer

Soccer is the focus of attention with more than 100 leagues from over 60 countries available. The top European leagues alongside the Champions League, which are hugely popular with Nigerian bettors, are given top billing. These big games have a stellar 170+ betting markets open such as double chance with O/U goals, goal margin handicaps, draw no bet, O/U goals, BTTS, and many others. However, even matches that fly under the radar like SV Horn Vs Floridsdorfer AC from Austria’s Erste Liga have 110 markets which is rather impressive.

LionsBet and other Sports

If basketball is your game, then prepare to be amazed at the depth on offer. There are more than 20 leagues from 17 countries and a huge choice of betting markets for each game. Alternatively, you can bet on outright winners of conferences, leagues and cups, too. Ice hockey also packs a punch with hundreds of matches coming from multiple leagues around the world. Tennis follows suit with a comprehensive choice, as does handball, volleyball, baseball and many others. For a newcomer to the industry, this is a very strong catalogue, and it’s more than a match for more established operators.

We checked out the odds and compared them against two other popular Nigerian betting sites, and LionsBet promise held true. Its prices are among the best in the business based on our findings. However, this is a very small sample, but it was conducted randomly so this is very encouraging.

LionsBet Live Betting

Live betting takes punters to the heart of the action. At LionsBet, you can bet live on a selection of sports ranging from soccer and tennis to basketball and volleyball. In contrast to the pre-match betting, the overall choice is rather thin. Whilst reviewing this betting site, it only offered a couple of live betting matches. At the same time Bet9ja had 14 in-play games.

Also, on a desktop, the live betting interface looks rather rough around the edges but it presents itself well on mobile view. Currently, it’s fair to say that LionsBet needs to up its game in this area as most other betting sites offer a stronger live betting package.

LionsBet Website/Usability

The web platform shapes up much better on mobile devices than it does on the desktop. This is understandable given that Nigeria is predominantly a mobile market.

The view from a phone or tablet is simple yet effective. You have the main links (sports, in-play, virtuals, games, etc) across the top accompanied by an expandable menu which lists all the sports and other features. Its simplicity makes navigation easy and it’s remarkably responsive. To bet, you just click on the selection and it’s added to your bet slip at the bottom. On a mobile this is collapsed so it doesn’t get in your way if you want to browse other markets to build an accumulator ticket. When you’ve chosen all your selections, expand the menu, insert the stake and place your bet.

LionsBet Mobile App

There is no LionsBet mobile app available to download, so all customers using a mobile device will bet directly through the web-based platform which we described above. It’s worth remembering that MTN subscribers can browse and bet without any data on this platform.

LionsBet Banking & Payouts

You can pay online or from an ATM and the minimum deposit is as low as ₦50.00. This is very good to those on a budget.
