Betnaija Games you can play

You can make money by predicting the outcome of several games under the bet9ja platform. Below are some of the games you can play to make money under betnaija platform:

Football Betting

You can predict the outcome of foot ball matches or football events. For example, you can predict the club that will win the UK premiership at the end of the season. Odds are attached to every game.  The higher the odds, the higher the money you can win. You can also predict that a player will be the one to score the first goal or the last goal.

You place a bet that a football match will end as a goalless encounter. There are over 1,000 bets you can place under the football section. Football (soccer) is very popular in Nigeria so you may want to place bets on football events.


We have Nigerians who actively follow basketball matches. You can turn your love and interest for basketball to money. All you need is to carefully study past basketball games and events and predict future events in basketball games by placing bets on betnaija platform.

Most of the bets on basketball are placed on matches in the United States.

Horse Racing

You may want to bet on horse racing events. While this game is not too popular in Nigeria but we still have people that actively follow it. The advent of betting companies has also popularized the game. It is common to see young Nigerians trooping to betting shops to place bets on horse racing games. It is called Esin n sare in Lagos state.

Motor Sports

The most popular game Nigerians bet on under motor sports is the Formula One. I have seen people who made millions of naira betting on Formular One events.

Dog Racing

Just like horse racing games, we have Nigerians who are keen about the sport. They bet on which dog will be the first to finish a race. Lagosians call this type of bet Aja n sare. Just visit a betting shop or log on to your bet9jamobile and start betting.

Virtual Sport Betting

When the major football clubs are not in season, betnaija have a virtual football sport betting. The football matches are simulated and people are expected to bet on the team to win. It is very diifuclt to predict this type of sport as you cannot use scientific means to predict the winning team.

Other sports you can bet on are super9 and casino games.

 Yes, you can make money by betting. Betting is not gambling, you can use statistical predictive models and other tested methods to increase your chances of winning. Go and play betnaija now.
