A welcome bonus is an enticing way of attracting new players to a betting site.

In fact the trend has become so popular nowadays that nearly every sportsbook has a bonus that newcomers can readily take advantage of. These are the so called “Welcome Bonus” or “Sign Up Bonus”.

It’s basically free money that you receive to bet with.

As such, we’ve compiled a list of the best welcome bonus you can find on Nigeria’s top betting websites.

Bet9ja’s welcome bonus offers players a 100% Welcome Bonus. The bonus is capped at N100,000! So if you deposit N100,000 you get a total of N200,000 to begin your betting journey.

1xBet Bonus: N30,000

1xBet’s gives your first deposit a 200% bonus, cappped at around N30,000. So in this case if you deposit N10,000 you can end up with N30,000 in your account.

NairaBet Bonus: N50,000

NairaBet’s First Bet Bonus Promo has its own intricacies. It rewards you with 100% of your first bet - up to N50,000. However there are special times when you can place an elligible bet to claim this bonus. Keep an eye out for the announcements on NairaBet’s social media and broadcasts.

BetWay Bonus: N20,000

Lionsbet Welcome Bonus gives you the chance to earn 100% up to N100,000 on your very first deposit. The conditions are simple: make your deposit, and they will double that amount so you can start betting at full throttle!

Can I withdraw the bonus money?

Yes you can!

However you can’t do it right away – otherwise sportsbooks would just be giving money away and find themselves out of business quickly. You need to place some bets using your bonus money in order to be able to request a full payout.

How many times can I claim a Welcome Bonus?

A clever question indeed. You can only claim a Welcome Bonus one time, right when you open an account with the sportsbook. So that is one bonus per account!

But here’s the good news:

If you’ve already signed up for a Welcome Bonus at Bet9ja, you can still take advantage of 1xBet’s promotion.

And if you’ve already done that, then just move on to the next one, like Betway.

  • Pro Tip:There is a limit to how many bonuses you can claim in a single betting site, but there is no limit in how many betting sites you can sign up for.
  • Bonus Terms and Conditions

    Just exactly how many times you need to bet your bonus money in order to withdraw it will vary between different sportsbooks.

    Typically you have to use the bonus amount to place anywhere from 1 to 10 bets. The odds in which you bet will also play role here though so take the time to read through the Terms and Conditions to ensure you are not caught off guard.

    How hard is it to withdraw the bonus?

    Here again it will depend on which sportsbook you are dealing with and also on how good you are at betting. On average we would say that a good punter can withdraw his bonus around 50% of the time.
